A boy and his dog: snowbilly edition

Boy: Here, boy!


Lawyer: Young man, would you use that phrase if a Black Man were nearby?

Boy: Sir? I'm calling my dog.


Lawyer: Why are you avoiding my question?



Lawyer: Again, are you using that phrase because you want to offend? Are you trying to prove yourself at the expense of a Black Man's feelings? Mind you, I am only trying to tease out your intent but I will be answered.

Boy: Sir, what black man? Is he mad at me? Why is he mad at me? I just want my dog! I didn't do anything to a black man! Really!

Lawyer: Stop bastardizing my hypotheticals and answer them! Do you know who I am? My honor will be served!

Boy: MOM!!!


Mom: Excuse me, who are you to tell my son what he means when he is just calling his dog?

Lawyer: Madam, I am a busy man of important and taxing issues that must be dealt with on a daily basis. I have no time to be answering your impertinence when you have all day to sit on your ass and watch Oprah.



Lawyer: and may I suggest, Madam, that you get a real job.



Dog: could be worse, he could be from Irvine.

Your willingness to follow Goldstein to edge of reason, clasp hands, and jump off Thelma and Louise style is breath-taking. Patterico never said anything about stay at home parents and you would think, as an understudy to the intentionalism bs, you would not read meaning where none was intended. I ignored your sycophantic silliness, but Scott and his friends (who certainly don't approve of my politics) advise you that you grasp the mantle of victim a little too excitedly, it's advice you should take.

Oh, and, if I were facing a hostile work suit at work based upon race (AND I MAKE NO JUDGMENTS ABOUT WHO IS RIGHT OR WRONG AND I AM NOT CALLING YOU A RACIST), I would take down post titles like "Master Obama." I get that it's a double entendre and clever, but a jury might think differently (and all the railings about PC and intentionalism you want to do in Court won't save you). Take it as a free, educated guess.

Thanks, Tim. Still another proof that Jeff G. is right.

Does timb have some sort of nuclear-powered Google-fu device that sets off a siren whenever JG is mentioned anywhere on the internet?

I imagine him sliding down a batpole from his mom's kitchen to her basement--one hand on the pole, the other clutching a bag of Twinkies.

To the keyboard!!

"Jeff is a poopy-head," he writes, completely ignoring any context.

And every evening, he writes in his secret Bat-Diary whether Jeff noticed his comments.

He's a stalker, filled with icky white cream of dubious origin.

Wow, Cowboy, if I gave one iota of concern to either you or your opinion, that would bother me.

As it is, one can follow Godlstein's many spats from.....ready for it....Protein Wisdom, his occasional blog and the home of Darleen's heart. I'm not the most adept computer user, so I just follow the Protein Wisdom Rapid Reaction Force and make fun of them.

Here, however, I'm the regular commenter and you are the visitor. Let me assure you, Darleen needs you, dude, so kick off your boots and stay awhile.

PS Whether he notices or not and we know he does, watching the end of Protein Wisdom has been fab. Pretty soon the Simon gravy train wins and it'll be up to you and Dar to subsidize him.

timb, still a tool, I see.

Oh, timb, I didn't know you had Special Commenter Status here.

I stand rebuked.

Oh, and I wouldn't count Jeff out just yet, as much as that would warm the tepid cockles of your little heart.

...or would it?

Posted by: Cowboy at March 24, 2009 05:00 PM

Oh, cowboy, you kidder, you. I mocked you for being inconsequential and rather silly, not because you're not a regular here. And, rather than rebuked, maybe you could stop trolling the site and comment on the content of the blogger's post?

The second paragraph is what's known as an invitation to stick around and make Dar happy, not a paean to some weird hierarchy. I understand as an authoritarian, you prefer hierarchy...

Unlike Obama, our Lord and Master, I am a descendent of slaves so go play in the freeway.

Oh, that last meant figuratively.

You do, though, have a very creepy obsession with JeffG and now that Pat is finding you warm and cuddly because Pat can't figure out a way to back away from his hysteria that had him seeing threats were none existed and slamming stay-at-home-parents for good measure, the creep factor is off the scale.

Posted by: Darleen at March 24, 2009 09:06 PM

So, Cowboy shouldn't stick around and comment?

And, Darleen, I know you like your villains to be all bad and your heroes to be all white, but did you miss where Patterico threatened to ban me for responding to JD?

Again, I understand, Pat's evil and all, but he apparently dislikes mostly the same people you do (save Jeff), so maybe you should re-think the group think and realize your pal JG's a kook.

As for the obsession thing, could you guys get some new material. I mean I'm used to cons acting like the Borg collective and all, but the obsession thing is as old as "timmy" or "timmah" and really hasn't seemed to persuade me.

In the end, the irony of being called obsessed for following a blog and making fun of the owner of the blog by a group of people who follow the blog and slavishly praise the owner is...suffice it to say rich. You guys rarely recognize hypocrisy unless you see it in others, eh?
