  1. As a longtime fan of Bullwinkle, I feel for that tick-infested moose. Thanks for the shout out associating me with that film I had deleted from my memory bank …

  2. When I was living up in Maine, a tourist once asked me in all seriousness, “When do the deer turn into moose?”

    • Smaktakula says:

      I can only assume he was from Jersey. While I didn’t see any moose when I was in Maine, I did see plenty of “Moose X-Ing” signs.

      Thanks as always for stopping by!

  3. Marcel Marceau the Rock Opera – crack me up!!!!

  4. El Guapo says:

    It’s nice to know that I can come here during the holiday season and avoid all that feel good crap.

    So is Purina going to be exploiting that Arkansas dog-food niche?

  5. tomsimard says:

    Well, whatever you want to say about Arkansas and I have a feeling you’ve got lots to say, they did have Beaker Street, which played some great music.
    I’m not sure what amuses me about Vlad, the fact that he is the master of everything or that he owns a Lab.

    • Smaktakula says:

      Well, it’s that little touch of humanity that throws you off. It’s like every time I remember that Putin is somebody’s granddad it blows my mind for a second.

      I didn’t know about Beaker Street, but I must admit I have a fondness for Arkansas, not least because my holler-dwellin’ American progenitors crawled forth from that primordial ooze (in fact, there’s a town right across the border in the Missouri Ozarks that bears my mom’s maiden name). I just very much enjoy making fun of things.

      • tomsimard says:

        Beaker Street was for me at least a bit of saneness from radio’s inaneness.

        Never been to Arkansas or for that matter too many places in the South. During my hitchhiking days I feared my Yankee accent might cause me trouble. I would really love to visit now though.

        Speaking of Missouri Ozarks – have your read any Daniel Woodrell? I’ve only read Winter’s Bone
        but liked it quite a bit and should really read more.

      • Smaktakula says:

        Beaker Street was for me at least a bit of saneness from radio’s inaneness.

        What a lovely turn of phrase. I don’t listen to the radio, except ball games, because it’s so much crap. I was in a diner yesterday with my family in another county, and they played all oldies & doo-wop. I loved that.

        Re: Woodrell–yes, I’ve read a couple of his books (and when I say “read,” in this instance, I mean “listened to”). “Winter’s Bone” was surprisingly good, and I also read something called “The Bayou Trilogy,” which are three hard-boiled novellas set in a fictional (as I recall) Louisiana Parish.

      • tomsimard says:

        I’ll check out The Bayou Trilogy – thanks.
        I do love the sound of “hard-boiled novellas” – brings to mind Dashiell Hammett.

      • Smaktakula says:

        The comparison to Hammett seems appropriate. I’ve read (again, “heard”) “The Maltese Falcoln,” and there are certainly thematic similarities. Another similarity: both TMF and TBT are fairly intelligent works which are altogether unconcerned with appearing intelligent.

      • tomsimard says:

        I’ve only read his Red Harvest, which I thought was great. I don’t think I’ve read another writer who wrote such fabulously lean prose.

        “…fairly intelligent works which are altogether unconcerned with appearing intelligent.”

  6. Carrie Rubin says:

    “Bird parents puke down their kids’ throats. Try topping that.”—Alicia Silverstone came close when she posted a video of herself passing her chewed food to her toddler’s mouth. Guess she doesn’t know that’s one of the best ways to pass cavity-causing bacteria from mother to child. Plus, it’s just plain gross.

    As for that testicle thing? Best reason to not sleep naked as far as I can tell.

  7. jmmcdowell says:

    Damn, Carrie beat me to the Alicia Silverstone bit! I couldn’t remember if it was her or Reese Witherspoon that pulled that stomach-turning stunt.

    Putin—the man’s main public concern for getting Russia’s GPS up and running was to be able to track his dog. I wonder if he was leaving toys on the streets for unsuspecting passers-by….

  8. whiteladyinthehood says:

    There is so much to love about this post! The man who got his testicle eaten by a dog! Holy Shit. That was a freaky ass story to find…(and the dog lost his head) ??
    I can’t say this enough to you Smakola – you are damn funny.

  9. Mmm- lamb fries! Only that wasn’t a sheep nut. And it’s a dog eating it. I guess if it’s that easy to lose one’s balls in the deep South, then we shouldn’t even question missing teeth. However-

    If you have ever experienced a Southern drink sensation they call “apple pie” then it’s perfectly understandable how one of the redneck persuasion could wake up to his dog chowing down on his testicle.

    Makes “the dog ate my homework” pale by comparison.
