Billy Ray Cyrus adapts Keith Urban’s modified Jennifer Aniston hairdo for his own degenerate purposes. Not work safe. Not anything safe.

    1. BTW, fans of the mullet who wish to catch rare sightings of this endangered ‘do are encouraged to watch hockey coverage on the Vs network. The Kentucky Waterfall now appears to be relegated exclusively to Canadian ex-hockey players, leading to the new nom-de-plumage of “hockey hair.”

      Posted by Rob Read on 2006 11 22 at 03:01 PM • permalink


    1. A Nor’easter was dumping an ocean of rain on the city, and the interstates were a jerky, writhing mass of slithering automobiles piloted by people who’d prefer to be at home but didn’t want to run the risk of getting cut out of rich Aunt Sally’s will. But Sheila and I didn’t have a rich Aunt Sally, so we cancelled our respective family visits and made a date for Thanksgiving lunch at Barney’s Diner.

      It was one of those old-style diners: lots of stainless steel, neon lights and a black-and-white checkered floor. It was also the haunt of the boys from the 5th Precinct, so was affectionately known as the place where the Heat Meet to Eat. The place could have survived on its donut margins.

      We were seated in a booth by the plate glass window. The waiter had brought our meal – smoking hot plates filled with slices of turkey breast, rice with gravy, green beans and homemade buttermilk biscuits – and we were just commencing to tuck in, when Sheila stopped a fork full of rice half-way to her mouth.

      “Paco, do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched?”

      “In this business? Are you kidding?”

      “Take a gander out the window.”

      There was a guy standing there, shivering in the cold, pressed against the window like a bug on a windshield.

      “Yeah, I see him.” I buttered a biscuit.

      “Well, what do you intend to do about it? You can’t just leave the poor slob standing there with his nose pressed against the window like the little match girl!”

      I sighed the sigh of the longsuffering do-gooder and called the waiter over. “Raul, would you step outside and ask Mr. Wronwright if he’d like to join us?”

      Wronwright came up to the booth, still shivering. “Thanks, Paco. I’ve had kind of a rough time, lately, spending most of my money on trying to retrieve my museum-quality weaponry from . . .you know who . . .and so I’ve been a little short of jill . . .”

      “You mean ‘jack’, don’t you?”

      “Yeah, that’s right; I’ve been short of jack, and so . . .”

      “Never mind. Pull a table ‘round and order up some grub.”

      Wronwright’s face broke into a grin, and he suddenly reached over out table and banged on the window, and started waving. A moment later, there was a parade of the usual suspects through the front door: El Cid, MarkL, Grimmy, RebeccaH.

      Sheila beamed. “Looks like we’re going to have that big family Thanksgiving dinner after all!”

      I looked in my wallet and bid a silent farewell to the getus. It was ok. I’d probably be touching these birds for fees on upcoming cases soon enough, so why not spread a few bread crumbs on the water?

      Happy Thanksgiving, you mugs!

Then there was 22 years in the USNavy. I believed he’d grow it back out again. Instead, he gets it cut once a month, even trims his beard. Lot more silver than brown. Looks quite handsome.

      Straightening his hair, like these guys did…ummm…let’s just say it’d be something he’d expect of a metrosexual  – not terribly Manly, if you get my drift…

      They had Bryce Courtenay on to discuss his latest book Sylvia. Which he did, for a while, before turning to politics.

      First he claims that Australia’s involvement in the Iraq War was definately done in exchange for the Free Trade Agreement.

      Then he claims it was not even worthwhile from an economic point of view, because once the Democrats reclaim the white house, they will abolish the FTA.

      And then he says, from a moral standpoint, the war was abhorent.

      All of this powerful and insightful analysis from a man who can’t tell that 9/11 happened before Afghanistan or Iraq.

    1. #26 Paco: The reason why Cindy’s sign is misspelled is because those Koreans she’s with made it. BTW—Those Korean radicals, nominally from the South, are suspected of taking direction from North Korea, not that they can’t do enough damage by themselves without orders from the little guy up north.

    1. #46 paco –

      I don’t want anyone here getting the idea that I’m out of money.  No.  My funds are invested in very promising stocks.

      I also talked to the mother-in-law (pieces being upon her).  We’re having the following for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving menu:

      – Butterball turkey
      – dressing
      – giblet gravy
      – shrimp
      – scalloped oysters
      – corn casserole
      – cranberry gelatin
      – candied sweet potatoes
      – green bean casserole
      – port wine cheese ball
      – pumpkin roll
      – pumpkin pie
      – cherry pie

      The latter three desserts came from Miller’s Bakery & Gifts, a great Amish store.

    1. #69 Tommy: Interesting link. Are you in Korea, yourself?

      In that picture of the Ditch Witch, it looks like those cops are just dying to fill her pie hole with the end of a billy stick.

    1. #70 Memo to the world: The “wronwright” referenced in the Detective Paco story above is not “wronwright” but another fellow of the same name. For the record, the “wronwright” who regularly comments here is a promising young tax attorney who has most of his assets concentrated in sound, conservative investments, including Paco Enterprises Convertible Debentures, warrants and options on shares of the Pacific Australian Cobalt and Oxygen mine, and polar bear belly futures – all managed, of course, by Paco Underwriters, LLC. Remember: we treat your money like it was our own!

      BTW, wronwright: aren’t you afraid that if you eat all that food listed on your mother-in-law’s menu, your aorta will swell up and pop like a cheap circus balloon? Easy does it, fellah!

    1. Happy Thanksgiving, Auntie, and El Cid (still soaking up that seaside ambience, pal?) and all the folks in uniform, wherever you’re serving. And Andrea. And everyone else. Even you, Nancy Pelosi, you cosmetically enhanced old tart.

      Yes, 1.618, you just have to pluck them facing Mecca. (They do something similar with goats IIRC.)

      Happy thanks day!

      And Happy (Late) Thanksgiving to all Tim’s American guests; have a safe one if you’re overseas (like avoiding plastic turkey).

      Yep, so far…but I am tiring of my adopted home State and the hoops they are making me jump through, to claim residency. I’m getting to that point of exasperation, to where I could chew iron and spit nails.

    1. #72 paco, yes, I have high hopes for those investments.  I am a little worried about paco mutual fund though.  A 50% upfront fee?  And 50% cut of the profits?  Ordinarily I would laugh if someone came to me with those conditions.  (pause for similated laugh of a Monty Python nature)  But their investments in unconventional ventures did beat the socks off of Fidelity Investments and the Magellan Fund last year.

      As far as my aorta is concerned, I try eating healthy.  I usually eat Quaker Oatmeal each morning and it takes like shit, regardless of the “flavors”.  I eat fruit and I barely chew it, I’m so sick of it.  I drink V8 juice which might as well be syrup of ipecac.  I’m eating every one of these dishes and when I’m done, I’ll be watching the football game while gnawing on a turkey leg.  There’s a very good chance succulent juices will run off my chin onto the lazy boy chair and that’s cool with me.

    1. For some reason that first link doesn’t work when I placed it on this blog.  I suspect some shenanigans by Andrea.  But it does work if you do a Yahoo search for “Miller’s Bakery & Gifts” and you click the Uncle Gary link.

      Ordinarily I wouldn’t mention this but I’m entranced by the song on that web site.  I keep playing it in my mind.  I’m envisioning some Arabic beauties gyrating in diaphonous fabrics.

    1. #71 Paco: Happy Thanksgiving. Yes, I’m in Seoul. Those Korean conscripted riot cops have the worst job in the world: hours upon hours of mind numbing standing around followed by minutes of whacked-out unionistas, radical college students, “farmers,” and other malcontents throwing molotov cocktails at your ass. Having to deal with white whackos would’ve been a novelty for the guys.

    1. #80 wronwright: Don’t settle for that… “stuff”. Go the health food store and buy some rolled oats. Sweeten it with honey.  You may still not like it much, but it will be “a-hell-of-a-lot” better for you.

      (I’ve become a bit of a food-nut since becoming a cancer survivor.)

    1. Several morning shows had stories on how not to over-eat on Thanksgiving, including gems like “fill your plate only once.”

      Here’s my over-eating tip for Thanksgiving:

      F***ing over-eat, for Christ’s sake! Eat half a goddamn turkey and two goddamn pumpkin pies by yourself, and if you want to wash it down with a full gravy boat, knock yourself the f*** out, because it’s motherf***ing THANKSGIVING, goddammit! Give thanks to your f***ing maker that you live in a time and place where assholes worry about HAVING TOO MUCH F***ING FOOD!

      Thank you.

    1. Happy Thanksgiving Auntie KC, and All Ya’ll! (and I mean that in a good way).  We had the full Thanksgiving spread here today, (except no green bean casserole) and I must say it was good. Even had a slice of pecan pie!  I was a little disappointed though; they were completely out of plastic turkey.  But soldiers make do with what they have, so I took a bite of the visiting Hillary Clinton’s face (which served as a mighty fine substitute for plastic turkey, once you get through the mushy, pasty outer coating).
      The only hard part is spending yet another Thanksgiving away from my family.  Friends, if you ever feel aggravated about the hussle-bussle, the hassles of traveling and traffic, and the noisy din of too many relatives in one room, let me tell you to stop.  Remember this holiday that the one thing you should truly be thankful for this day is that you ARE there to be aggravated by all of these things. Give those you love a huge hug and a kiss, and thank God or science that they are with you.  I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving, and even you heathen furriners.

    1. #55 tWoW;

      “Can anyone explain to me why the two german ‘roaches I’ve nailed in the last 40 minutes are not being summarily devoured by the long legged spiders I’ve sent them to?”

      Sure. Like frogs, if it isn’t moving, they don’t know it’s food, and they won’t even check.

      You might be able to get them to take some interest, assuming the defunct roaches are tangled in the web, by gently moving the expired prey with a broomstraw or something similar. Blowing on it generally sends the spiders scurrying for cover.

      Oh yeah; and happy thanksgiving to y’all on this side of the ponds.

    1. If you’ve got a spider that eats cockroaches in your house, WoW, I suggest you encourage it to breed and copyright its DNA, cos my spiders won’t even come out for a look.
      My usual strategy is to give them a good whack with a fly swatter – ah, the pleasures of the hunt! – and then leave them in the backyard. The ants will clean them up in a couple of hours.

      Hey, Thanksgivingers! How are the bellies today?

      And then I have to read this:

      A spate of celebrities – including ole Richie, Paris Hilton, Tony Hawk, William Shatner, Carmen Electra and Ice Cube

      Oh yes ~ huge, HUGE celebrities.

      We’re doomed.  Happy Thanksgiving.

    1. #100, Further investigation reveals these spiders seem to prefer moving prey, much as you have pointed out, but at the same time may also explain why we have no Red-Backs below 8 feet above the ground at my joint.  Or perhaps its because is hit the poisonous little twin colored bitches with the nearest boot any chance I get.  Long-Legs I leave alone, I live near a lake…
