Monday's Pun(s) !!!

Psychopaths always see amoral in the story.

The student had such a big assignment, he had to burn his kindl at both ends.

People who lack the patience for calligraphy will never have properly formed characters.
Shocked! Shocked I Say! 

Well, I did not see this coming.

Hamas sympathizers in the Heartland?  In the store that was robbed by the Gentle Giant and....looted last nite whilst the Police watched.

Surely Eric Holder will get to the bottom of this.


UPDATE: Maybe it's me, but there seems to be a whole lot of agitating going on.  To what end?

Gamechanger Part II 

The Gentle Giant charged at the police officer.....and was shot..

The Gentle Giant has six bullet holes in him  from the front. (ie not in the back)

The Gentle Giant was stoned on marijuana.....

As a result of these pesky facts getting in the way of the narrative, president Zero has dispatched Attorney General, Eric Holder, (who has been held in contempt of Congress and is subject to arrest) to Ferguson to put a lid on, er, umm...."oversee" the investigation.  Because we all know Eric Holder used to, maybe, well probably, uh, one time....okay..... he has no experience in criminal investigations. But what can it hurt?

Texas Dumbacrats Shine Spotlight On Corrupt Politician.....

Sunday, August 17, 2014


I have stayed out of this one as I have no dog in this hunt.
Just been listening to the Race Baiters, aka, press, Jesse Jackson, Rebrund Al, Same Old Black Panther ParTay & Eric Holder as they try to hold the narrative about a poor gentle giant of a black man gunned down by an evil cop. 

Then, slowly, the facts started coming out....

The Gentle Giant robbed a store
The Gentle Giant punched the store owner
The Gentle Giant fought the with the cop in his car
A shot was fired
The Gentle Giant and his accomplice ran
The Gentle Giant and his accomplice were ordered to stop

and now......

We hear that the Gentle Giant charged at the police officer.....and was shot. 

It's called a Bum Rush.  The goal is to overwhelm your opponent. Seems a video shot (6:08 mark) by a bystander is accompanied by some background commentary that does not support the narrative of the perpetually aggrieved caucus. Transcript below.

#1 How’d he get from there to there?
#2 Because he ran, the police was still in the truck – cause he was like over the truck
#2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him
#2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus – the police had his gun drawn already on him –
#1. Oh, the police got his gun
#2 The police kept dumpin on him, and I’m thinking the police kept missing – he like – be like – but he kept coming toward him
#2 Police fired shots – the next thing I know – the police was missing
#1 The Police?
#2 The Police shot him
#1 Police?
#2 The next thing I know … I’m thinking … the dude started running … (garbled something about “he took it from him”)

Ruh Roh....once again those pesky facts are getting in the way of the Race Baiters. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

(It's a National Holiday)

Hat Tip to ORPO for the lower pic)


Celebrate National Rum Day (August 16) with a little history.
Let’s talk about rum—but first we need to discuss garbage. Caribbean sugar farmers of the 17th century had a serious industrial waste problem. As Wayne Curtis recounts in his enjoyable history And a Bottle of Rum, these planters produced sugar by crushing sugar cane, boiling the resulting juices, and then leaving the boiled syrup to cure in clay pots. A viscous liquid would seep out of the pots, and sugar would be left behind.
That liquid was molasses. Today we know molasses as a delicious enabler of gingerbread and shoofly pies, but as Curtis notes, in the 17th century, planters couldn’t give away the cloying liquid. Slaves and livestock ate some of the molasses, but for the most part, it was an annoying bit of industrial waste. Production of two pounds of sugar yielded a pound of molasses, so colonial planters were swimming in the sticky trash. With no export market or practical use for it at home, planters resorted to dumping unwanted molasses into the ocean.
Luckily for the planters, someone eventually figured out a use for this molasses. By mixing it with the liquid skimmed off of cane juice during its initial boiling and fermenting it, one created a serviceable starting point for distillation. And although the exact etymology is still murky, the liquor this process yielded became known as rum.
The rum picture is obviously a little rosier today. Molasses is no longer unwanted industrial waste, and rum sales in the U.S. alone are north of $2 billion a year. Still, when I raised the idea of doing a piece on rum in the mental_floss office, the response was less than enthusiastic. Noses turned up. Eyes glazed over. The editorial team flashed back to throwing down too much rotgut rum and Coke during college.
Aged rums can be beautiful things, though. The best examples are as delightful to sip neat or over an ice cube as any whiskey. And compared to whiskey, they’re for the most part blessedly inexpensive; you can pick up quite a few world-class options for under $40. Eventually, the rest of the staff relented and agreed to taste some rums.
As we sampled more and more brands, the rest of the team seemed to slowly come around on my “Rum is delicious!” stance. Or maybe they just got tired of me yelling “Rum is delicious!” and decided to nod politely. Either way, after extensive taste testing, we narrowed in on 10 brands that would be a great addition to any summer hootenanny.

El Dorado Special Reserve 15 year old

This gem hails from Guyana, and at just $40 or so a bottle, it may be the best bargain in your liquor store. The thick body coats your mouth with strong flavors of raisin, caramel, and the hard top layer of crème brulee that’s really all anyone wants from crème brulee.

Gosling’s Old Rum

At around $65, this wax-dipped Bermuda bottle isn’t cheap. But it’s worth a splurge. It’s incredibly viscous and rich, with a ton of molasses flavor and spice. The flavor is so deep and complex that we talked about what we were tasting—Leather? Lemon? Allspice? Cheeseburger? Not cheeseburger—for a solid 10 minutes.

Ron Vizcaya VXOP

If you’re not used to drinking neat spirits, this one could be a great starting point. Very balanced and smooth enough to not overpower, there’s a nice mild sweetness backed by a pleasant lingering bit of orange.

Brugal 1888 Gran Reserva

Dominican stalwart Brugal recently introduced this gem, which has spent part of its life aging in Spanish sherry casks. The sweet sherry influence comes through on the nose and the flavor without overpowering the cinnamon and vanilla notes. Despite the sherry aging, this one really reminds us of bourbon. If you’re a bourbon drinker looking to branch out into rum, start here.

Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 year old

If you doubt a rum can pack a lot of chocolate flavor, grab a bottle of this Guatemalan. The nose almost smells like hot cocoa mix, and the chocolate comes through in the flavor with a little maraschino cherry in the finish.

Pyrat XO

The problems with those gummy candied orange slices are that a) they don’t contain any booze and b) you can’t drink them. This squat bottle comes close to solving both issues. Strong, sweet orange flavors could almost trick you into thinking this one’s a liqueur and make it all too easy to throw back.

Mount Gay Black Barrel

The newest product from Barbados’ Mount Gay is another great introduction to rum. It’s well balanced and could easily slot into a cocktail without overpowering it. Nice little bit of mint in the finish.

Don Q Gran Anejo

If you’re looking to buy American, look no further than this treat from Puerto Rico. It’s lighter in body and more delicate than most of this list, but packs in a lot of tropical fruit flavor, a solid punch of vanilla, and a lightly smoky flavor.

Cruzan Estate Single Barrel

Another bargain at just $25, Cruzan’s single barrel is on the drier end of the spectrum, but it’s got a lot of nutmeg, clove, and spice with just a bit of raisin in the flavor.

Bacardi Anejo

Not as thick or sweet as most of this list, Bacardi’s anejo finds a nice middle ground between the familiar light rums and the richer, heavier rums. Lots of banana flavor in this one. Nice enough to sip neat, but it really shines in cocktails.
What did we miss? Tell us what other rums we should be trying in the comments. I’ll start: it’s unconscionable that I couldn’t wrangle a bottle of Appleton Estate 12 year to share.

What Tornado?..... 

In the midst of tumultuous weather that has been sweeping across the UK, this Boeing 737 took off from an airport with a funnel cloud rotating behind it. The picture, however, may be a bit deceiving, making the funnel appear closer than it actually was. But even still — this could not have been a comforting sight for passengers.

Travis County Grand Jury Indicts Govner Rick Perry

Yes indeed. The Libtards on a Grand Jury in Austin went out and indicted the Guvner for threatening to use his veto power.

A Travis County grand jury Friday indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest.
Grand jurors charged Perry, 64, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony. 

The indictment stems from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.5 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget.

So, Ho... Rosemary Lehmberg, a Travis County District Attorney, got her badself all likkered up and went a driving.  She was arrested (video below) for drunk driving.  Rumor has she blew three times over the limit. Gov Perry wanted her to resign. Hell, 3/4 of the state wanted her to resign. However, being a Democrat she knew that arrest and jail time would be viewed a resume enhancers and refused to resign

Wonder if they will go after president Zero for the same thing. Prolly not, professional courtesy and all that.
