Flashback: 50 Hollywood Stars Who Accused Trump of Treason, Collusion with Russia

Only 50? Seems like so much more.

I see that Vincent D'Onofrio of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" fame has some experience with losing his mind over a Republican president winning an election. He lost his mind when J.F.Kerry lost to George W.Bush see Get A Grip, Dude and now he's at it again with President Trump's win.

Sorry, Vincent, but I tried to tell you back in 2004 that this world was never made for one as looniful as you.

Dyspeptic Dems

The total reported cost of the Special Counsel's investigation through September 2018 was $25,215,853.00 and counting...

I'm not dyspeptic about the news, but I am bordering on apoplectic over the cost of this fake news witch hunt.

Oh, I'm hearing noise from the "#isn't-it-time-to-move-on-dot-org" crowd, but the answer to them is #NO WAY.

Now, let's go after the real witch and her minions.

Designing Spiders

Everyone agrees that spiny orb weavers (Gasteracantha canciformis) make wonderful webs...

Let me tell you, they're not so wonderful when a fleet of them invade your pool enclosure.

Flashback to The BLOG Spider Pool 2007:

Loving spiders is a relative thing.

Cooked Poacher

In the province of Limpopo of northeastern South Africa over the weekend of February 10th., a pack of lions attacked and killed a suspected poacher near Kruger National Park at the Hoedspruit private game park.


It couldn't have happened to a better scumbag.

A Little Irish Humor

Little Leprechaun

Little Patrick asked his teacher if he could go to the bathroom, so she said yes.

When he went to wipe his bum there was no toilet paper so he used his hands.

When he got back to class his teacher asked, "What do you have in your hands?"

Patrick said, "A little leprechaun and if I open my hands he'll get scared away."

He was then sent to the principal's office and the principal asked him, "What do you have in your hands?"

So little Patrick said, "A little leprechaun and if I open my hands he'll get scared away."

He was sent home and his mom asked him "What do you have in your hands?"

So little Patrick said, "A little leprechaun and if I open my hands he'll get scared away."

He was sent to his room and his dad came in and asked, "What do you have in your hands?"

So again little Patrick said, "A little leprechaun and if I open my hands he'll get scared away."

Then his Dad got really mad and yelled, "Open your hands!"

And little Patrick opened his hands and said, "Look Dad you scared the shit out of him!"


A drunk Irishman staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a confessional booth and sits down, but says nothing.

The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention but the drunk continues to sit there, not saying a word.
Finally, the Priest pounds three times on the wall.

To which the drunk mumbles, “Sorry, can’t help you. There’s no paper on this side either.”


A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm and says: "A beer please, and one for the road."


In closing,

I can make you all speak Irish...

Say "Whale oil beef hooked" quickly

Canine Marvel?

More amazing than this rescue is the third dog that's operating the camera and editing the video.


In spite of the staging, I think Border collies are super smart dogs that are very easily trained.

Another Hat Crime

Florida Police Investigating After School Bus Aide Yanks MAGA Hat off Student’s Head

Here we go again...

Another cowardly strike by a lefty loon that needs to learn that actions have consequences.

Mr. Cube has his eye on the hat below.

I don't see anyone messing with him though... as Mr. T would say, "I pity the fool..."

Dark Humor, Time

My brain knows that Daylight Saving Time isn't the enemy, Standard Time is ...

... but losing an hour this weekend still puts me in a dark mood.

Owl Dive

This really did make me laugh out loud.

Many years ago, shortly after moving out on my own, I made a trip back to my family home. It was raining and, as I ran up the drive way, I slipped on the tile entryway and landed flat on my arse. Much like the owl, I looked around, wondering if the very neighbors who had witnessed my journey from child to adulthood had seen my inelegant fall.

It's one of those memories that stick with you no matter how much you want to forget.

... meet the Pallas cat (Otocolobus manul), a.k.a. manul for short, a wildcat found in the grasslands and steppes of Central Asia and Eurasia.

13 Fascinating Facts About Pallas’s Cats

Although there might be a slight facial resemblance to the BTK killer (below), the Pallas cat is not a serial killer, well, unless you happen to be a pika, gerbil, vole, hare, ground squirrel, bird, or young marmot.

Flip Flop

A short collation from

MICHAEL COHEN Pitched A ‘$750,000’ Book Proposal Praising Trump Shortly Before He Was Arrested

First you take a big dollop of prosecutorial misconduct from Herr Mueller and his legal pit-bull, Andrew Weissmann. Add testimony scripted by Lanny Davis (who doesn't wipe his butt without consulting with Hillary), throw in some last minute drilling by three lefty stooges, Adam Schiff (D-Calif), Jerrold Nagler (D-NY), and Elijah Cummings (D-Md) and you have a recipe for one hot corrupt mess.

As always, consider the source.
