More Blogging for the Future

More Blogging for the Future
We drove down to the in-laws tonight, tonight being last Friday for you. I have an unwritten rule that each hour the trip takes earns me one ounce of gin upon arrival, and the trip took a record four hours tonight. We spent an entire hour driving the ten miles into Greensboro on 40. Thank God I'm not all powerful, else whomever is in charge of the highways of Greensboro would have been flayed alive by tiny flaming demons early on in the evening.

I had fun last night. It was very liberating to just set the posting bar at "If I've read all the way through it, then I link to it." I suspect tonight's offering will be somewhat shorter, if only because I expect Mr. Beefeater's gin will put me down soon. But. as long as we're here.....

TANSTAFFL informs me that New Jersey as a Poet Laureate, that he is an idiot, and I gather from the tone of the article that hen does not write in the following mode.

Youse guys
will speak to me
wit the tones of respect.
Else I'll rip out your head
And piss down your neck.

Too bad, really.

Cold Fury gets his mad on discussing the Blue Angels. Not that that we would ever do it , or that it wouldn't harm hundreds of patriotic citizens, but wouldn't it be just the slightest bit satisfying to announce that for the next ten year, the armed forces of America will not defend San Francisco? Hmm....maybe my language is too strong. Let's call it dozens of patriotic citizens.

The Safety Valve proposes that we should refer to Lord Baltimore's Rifleman as the Maryland Assassin. Duly seconded, if only for the historical connection to the Middle East

The Greatest Jeneration worries about a nukular ( I feel that I need to sound presidential here) North Korea, and quotes this David Warren inanity .

We simply do not know if they have successfully developed missiles that could reach North America.

Bloody Canadians. David, not you, Jen. We actually do know if the Beloved Leader could reach North America or not.

Kim Ill Dong, or whatever his name is, could probably hit Japan, certainly South Korea, and possible Western Alaska (Lot's of valuable targets there). He's certainly not going to be able to nuke David Warren any time soon. A cold eyed realist would suggest that inducing the Koreans of a Northern persuasion to lob off a couple of nukes in the direction of Tokyo and Seoul would greatly enhance our diplomatic and military freedom of movement in Asia. Fortunately I am not such a person.

Eristic is completely infected by the tump meme. I am sorry to say that despite a life spent almost entirely in cracker land, that word was unknown to me before its appearance in the blogosphere.

Snow White and the 7 actors. I'm very tempted to stop here and write the story of Snow White and the Seven Samurai, but I see that it has already been done.

Asparagirl was double counted on the last census, and has been asked to kill someone. She also mentions geneaology, a favorite subject of mine, since it allows me to drop name of the Furtherance, the ship my direct ancestor arrived at Jamestown on. Oh, we set such store by that.

Brain Fertilizer wonders if there is anything he has written that is worthy of the Carnival of the Vanities. Dude, of course there is. I mean, it's not like we have really high standards or anything. :)

Apparently Zionists used of the many micro nukes they just happen to have lying around on the disco in Bali. Apparently they had grown tired of Anita Ward, and wished to ring her bell once and for all.

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.
