    Good morning!!

    I have a sick kid at home, so I am late getting here. Sorry I didn’t have anything up, J’Ames.

  4. Jay in Ames November 14, 2011 at 10:40 am #

    Meh, not your fault. I could have something up as well.

    But you are busy at WORK!!!

    I just have a puking kid. It’s no contest.

    Excellent video.

    Much better than the “Nation of Ingrates” demonstrations around the country.

    I can’t wait until OccupyIowa starts to protest the Iowa Caucuses. They are trying to get everyone else to come to Iowa, also.

    This could be fun. I might get to see arrests made. I’m sure it won’t be at my precinct, so I might have to make a day of it.

    And we need more of this: http://dailycaller.com/2011/11/14/occupythecurb/

    I can’t stop laughing from reading that link, Jay – that picture is PRICELESS!!!!!

    Aren’t the Iowa caucuses held in the dead of winter? I want videos of any “Occupiers” who show up – we can call them “Libsicles” before it’s all over….. 😛

    Sorry about the puking kid, Ags – BTDT; it’s no fun for anyone….

    *hugs Aggie, slips her a flask when nobody’s looking*

    wanky wanky.

  12. Jay in Ames November 14, 2011 at 1:01 pm #

    Yep, Teresa, Jan 3. Should be good and cold by then. Perhaps that is why they are having trouble finding volunteers to come up and block the caucuses.

    Question…who put the ram in the ramalamadingdong? This has been bugging me for years….

  16. Jay in Ames November 14, 2011 at 1:25 pm #

    Question…who put the ram in the ramalamadingdong?

    It was Black Betty, according to Ram Jam.

    A TOUGH OLD COWBOY FROM SOUTH TEXAS COUNSELED HIS GRANDSON THAT IF HE WANTED TO LIVE A LONG LIFE, THE SECRET WAS TO SPRINKLE A PINCH OF GUN POWDER ON HIS OATMEAL EVERY MORNING.

    THE GRANDSON DID THIS RELIGIOUSLY TO THE AGE OF 103 WHEN HE DIED. HE LEFT BEHIND 14 CHILDREN, 30 GRANDCHILDREN, 45 GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, 25 GREAT-GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, AND A 15-FOOT HOLE WHERE THE CREMATORIUM USED TO BE.

    Sorta brings a tear to your eye, don’t it

    who put the ram in the ramalamadingdong?

    Who put the Bop in the Bopshoobopshoobop?

  19. LC Aggie Sith November 14, 2011 at 1:56 pm #

    Great joke, J’Ames.

    Thanks for the flask, Teresa. Sorry it’s now empty…

  20. MCPO Airdale November 14, 2011 at 2:06 pm #

    May I start drinking now?

    Herself went in to report for jury duty today (which means I’ll be called in a week) and, despite being a retired Recruit Company Commander, was selected.

    This is gonna be a fun week. /sarc

    You may begin.

    Justin Timberlake writes about his experience at the Marine Corps Ball (get out your hankies):

    We all have our own individual views on war… But, doesn’t that speak to just another thing that makes this country so special?? The fact that we can all wake up every morning and BE individual with a pure sense of freedom..? But, one thing that can’t be argued is that it’s because of the people who VOLUNTEER their lives to make sure that it’s protected at all times. And, like I said before, doing so while asking for nothing in return…

    To all of you that serve every day for us… Ensuring our freedom, I say: My deepest gratitude to you….Last night changed my life and I will never forget it.

    To people like me who get to benefit from this type of person… One with character and courage. With strength and bravery. With humility and honor… I say: Send your thanks. Do it however you can. Write a letter, type an email… Hell, buy ’em a beer next time you run into someone from our Armed Forces in a bar. When they say thank you for that drink that cost you 3 bucks, they’ll mean it. They won’t take it for granted and, they won’t forget it.

  23. LC Aggie Sith November 14, 2011 at 2:35 pm #

    Yeah, I read that this morning, Teresa. But wasn’t Mila Kunis supposed to go as well?

  24. Jay in Ames November 14, 2011 at 2:49 pm #

    Hers is next week.

  25. terribletroy November 14, 2011 at 2:53 pm #

    @ MCPO

    Where / When did you CC? Great Lakes, Hollywood, or Disney land….

    Regarding jury duty….. all you have to say is that your pro law enforcement and that you wish the death penalty was useed more often. PRESTO! No jury duty for you.

  26. Jay in Ames November 14, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

    A friend of mine had an exchange like this:

    Lawyer: How do you feel about Gun Control?

    Friend: I’m for it.

    Lawyer: So, you are for Gun Control.

    Friend: Yes. And proper site alignment, too.

    No jury duty for my friend.

  27. terribletroy November 14, 2011 at 3:02 pm #

    PS. Timberlake just went up a couple of notches on my appreciation scale. If Kunis re-nigged I’ll never watch that flat chested fucking euro immigrant again.

    Speaking of which, Mr. TiFW took his CHL certification class on Saturday…

    …all I can say is, we don’t have to worry about anyone who manages to make it past the Bumpus dogs…
    (he scored a 244/250; one shot missed the target entirely, but there was a great big hole – full of lots of shots – where the heart should be!)

    Thanks Troy…I just spilled precious beer…

    LOL @ J’Ames’ friend 😀
