And Joe Bite-me is kind of weak, ASID. Not enough of a phonetic link to be effective.

Gotta be a better play on the name than that, is all I'm saying there...
Of course it was planned. The base eats this kind of malarkey up -- as proved by the glowing praise from the lap-dog media, and the few high-profile donations that were "inspired" by this stunt.

As for the nickname, I did not invent it, and it runs much deeper than that. Joe "Bite me" is not only stupid, and cunningly evil, he is very rude. Google that phrase and his name.

Ok guys, enough of this. Not the place for political meanderings.

ok ok, fair enough... (but in all fairness we were only agreeing to agree on the mechanics of politics and I don't think either one of us treaded the nasty line...)

It's a fair cop, to be sure. This thread is for twabbles. Write them if you can, all. They are hard. What?! 100 Total? Darn.

Ok, that was cheesy. I'm too tired to write well. Yeah, that's it.

How about:

This thread is for twabbles
not political twaddle.
Write about non-partisan zombies
or your account might be hobbled.

Zombies are non-partisan to be sure. The ultimate in independent voters, completely unswayed be campaign rhetoric. A super-PAC's worst nightmare.

A most disturbing vision gazes wetly from the dining table. My ramen has been defiled. Waiter, there's an eye in my soup.

The demon was cruel. He must have been new, though because he accepted my shoes as payment. Two soles for the price of one.

I broke the twabbles up over multiple posts since that seemed to be the custom here. Hope that's OK.

The word fellatio sounds too Shakespearean. It makes more sense to call it head when you get it from a decapitated woman.

That's fine, but if you are submitting several at once, putting them in one post is probably slightly better.

Anyway, some worthy first twabbles. Welcome aboard!

Heh heh - I like this one. It kind of reminds me of my college days... (The ramen, that is - not the eyeball.)

Rou, that simply cannot be. Surely I would have read something about that in at least one of our hardened, skeptical newspapers. I read about the CIA causing 9/11 and shooting Kennedy. But all I have heard about Biden is how courageous he is. So you are asking me to believe something for which there is no substantiation. You are saying you came up with this theory without leaving Portland... :|

Ok, now I think I understand.

It's Portland, isn't it? This is why they love Obama so much. I see there is a certain Portlandish entertainment value in seeing the media going along with Biden taking himself seriously, and believing the President takes him seriously, when he's just a tool. There's probably a federal contract using stimulus funds to study how long people can go without snorting up their coffee through their noses in his presence, and giving away the game. That's why Robert Gibbs had to go. And Rahm Emmanuel just couldn't keep a straight face any longer.
And what better joke on the Tea Party than for Portland to go along with the joke, leaving them to stand there scratching there heads, saying "OMG! Did you see that?!", while everyone just smiles and winks at one another.

Well, I must say, I can respect that.

Don't want to get justifiably shushed by Saint Tom, buddy, but I will say that if you've seen Portlandia then I can confirm that the parody level is only slightly elevated from reality.

Yes, we're the liberal Mecca, (OMG, he said Mecca that must mean the rumors are all true... ;-) )

Well, duh.

But for the strange loving fans that happen to occupy the right side of political thought, I guess that's the price you have to pay for the strange stories that have emanated from my loony home town.

Peace, baby. :-)

Day nine. I eat old peanuts and cracker jacks under the bleachers. I meant it when I said "I don't care if I never get back."

The "eye" and "soles" puns were potential winners, imo.

The last one was icky. :P :-)

Someone needs to send this to George Will. Really nice.

The neighborhood sure has changed since we were last here, hasn’t it?

Well, for instance, that nebula over there is new.
