    You know who I really dislike? Thespians. They are all out driving Subarus and wearing flannel and such...to heck with them!

    For reference to both these posts, oddly enough, was the 1950 FL Senatorial campaign, where George Smathers accused his opponent of Claude Pepper of:
    1. Had a brother who was a "practicing Homosapien"
    2. Had a sister who was a "thespian"
    3. Had "matriculated" with young women

    Smathers won, btw.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    That reminds me of P.T. Barnum's "This Way to the Egress" sign at his museum that he put up when the place was starting to get too crowded so that he wouldn't have to turn people away. Of course, it's entirely possible that the Barnum story is apocryphal. Hell, it's possible that Barnum himself is apocryphal and never actually existed, like Shakespeare and Jesus. But sometimes a story doesn't have to be true to be true.


    And before you get all bent out of shape, I know Shakespeare existed. It's a joke!

    I read both those stories in a "strange but true" book in the 70s. Or it may have been the "weirdest stories" portion of the Book of Lists, the reason I know what an aglet is and what antidisestablishmentarianism means.

    I cant believe Ben Shapiro aborted this interview. He should have been forced to carry it to term.

    The Barnum story was true. He was a master marketer.

    Gotcha. My radar is off tonight. Am all in on the newest W Kamau ep, about St Paul Hmong community/history.

    I'm a little conflicted about stories like this. It's good that bigots like that can't hide. But off-the-charts dumbazz stunts like that wouldn't have seen the light of day not that long ago. It's like a story of 15 people staging a protest related to a highly contentious issue. On the balance, it may be good we hear of it. It may be isolated idiocy, but it acts in concert with other small acts.

    I think the very banality of it is good to hear. It's how we can recognized that bigotry affects people all the time. If we only hear about a pogrom or cops with firehoses then it is tempting to think "sure, but we're better now -- there's no more bigotry." But when we hear about the rinkydinky jackwagon level of bigotry we are reminded (1) it's always with us and (2) hate networks like Fox or talk radio are inciting their moron audiences to act on their bigotry in ways that affect lives, and not just by their votes.

    Whiney snowflake gets audibly upset when Children's cartoon has wedding scene.

    It continually impresses me that these people keep finding a home to pout-rage. I really want in on their money making scheme, but I have morals and don't want my name soiled from their slime.

    Also, the comments are a gold mine.
