blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Animal Farm

4.01.2009

Animal Farm

I basically hate April Fools. I'm on guard about everything which is a real beating for a guy who is skeptical about everything to begin with. But I thought I'd do something a little bit different for today and shall digress from scantily clad women and move onto animals. (Keep your jokes to yourself.) Above I give you the newly born Elke the baby leaf monkey. Frankly, I didn't know there were leaf monkeys. Spider monkeys, yes. Leaf monkeys, no. But this little fella is cute enough to melt Jarhead's hard and bitter Republican heart. In any event, Elke hereby becomes the Official Monkey of Liberally Lean. Which got me to thinking, I probably need to adopt some other animals as well. A couple were easy. First, spaghetti cat is obviously the official cat. That thing is just weird, which makes him perfect. A close runner up was the Wise County cat that got its head stuck in a food can. (Actually, that was a pretty tough choice.) And, although I'm not sure I ever posted him, the sleep-walking dog has to be my official dog. (The last few seconds turn a funny video into a triple funny video.) Pig? No question. This pot bellied pig that was placed on my office desk one day. (Thanks, Amberly.) Baby Chicks? No question. These little things that were also placed on my desk. (Stop it, Amberly.) But that is as far as I got.

I smiled a little, but my hard and bitter conservative heart remains as small and black as it ever was.

Forget the animals, get back to the scantily clad females or we will have to have an intervention complete a vodoo witch doctor.

It's a sad, sad day in animalville when your sugar sweet entry about a cute-as-a button monkey and other precious animals ended up generating a "better than thou" comment from a jackass at 2:21.

2:57?????????

I don't know where you got a better than thou meaning out of a grammar joke, cause it wasn't in there. But if you thought that warranted calling me a jackass, well, I guess I should point out to your illiterate ass that the term is "holier than thou"
and would not have qualified in this case as an intelligent remark.

2:20-

When did chickens not qualify as animals? Now mind you, I've got nothing against stomping animals, (chickens included). Some of my best friends are animal stompers. Hell, I stomp 'em occasionally just to stay in practice. I just hate to see you going around stomping things under false impressions.

It's my wordage, 3:10. I prefer "better than thou" if that's OK with you.

Kinda cute. Hey Barry if you are out 2123 way, check out Eldon Kaker's place. They've had several mother goats give birth to twins. Whole place is covered with babies.

That still doesn't make it an intelligent remark 3:25.

I didn't even know wordage was a real word. So I looked it up on dictionary.com.
Sure enough, there it was.

Definition #4 fit you to a tee (tea?)

I think goats almost always have twins, but maybe that's sheep.


I try to stay away from pregnant sheep for obvious reasons

I don't mind all these 'official' animals for Liberally Lean, as long as you don't go all PETA on us Barry.

"Threw with docket. One lawyer in town mentioned to me, "There has to be a better way to make a living"

I glanced at your little twitter thing earlier, (damn, everything about that statement just sounds wrong).

Anyway, I found the above statement from a few days ago.
Since we, from time to time, have pointless spats here concerning proper grammar and spelling, you probably know that the correct word for what you previously concluded is "through" or maybe "thru" I relly don't know what's correct, just that what you wrote is not it. That's not really wht this is about anyway.

Back to your friend's comment:

If we assume you make a living being a lawyer, and accept the prevailing wisdom that it is an above average living, and you have so much free time daily to play on this blog: in fact the rest of us can't see how there could be a much better way to knock down a quarter mil or so.

So having deduced your approximate compensation to effort ratio, how long do you think it will be before your redistributionist messiah decides you must owe the rest of us working stiffs a little "fairness" ?

Sorry, but I'm really just trying very hard to understand the new national goal of fairness, hope , and change. If that's what we are all going to move on to, I wanna make sure I get it right.

A lot of my African friends tell me that monkeys of that size and age are the best tasting. I guess that's kinda like cabrito.

Jackasses are animals too.

It's illegal to have monkeys in this county.
