Shameless Pandering

Hey kids! I haven’t really been utilizing this platform properly of late what with all the trying to survive on zero income and the myriad medical probings and the existential crisis the reich wing Republicants have been going through lately, but hopefully that will change in that perhaps some of my previous journamalistic exercises will be re-released on these pages.

In the meanwhile I have been busily tweaking the Mafia Owned Don on my Twitter feed along with any other juicy targets that present themselves. Please consider following my Twitter feed and stopping by to say hello if you do that sort of thing.

And also I managed to find an old acquaintance who used to do the radio show at the Mess just before I went on. After an amazing lifetime of wondrous adventure he is now the head brewmeister at Strathcona Beer Company [warning: video autoplays at link] in Vancouver, British Columbia. Congrats Fezz and that follower your brewpub has from Michigan is Your Humble Narrator. I’m thinking of trying to convince Doc and the boys to take a trip out to sample your wares even though most of them are single malt kind of guys because everybody likes beer!

Anyways,… today also happens to be the occasion of my oldest younger sister’s fifty-fourth birthday. Remember, it’s just a number – a constantly increasing fairly large number, but still…

Blast From The Past

Humpday, 11 Wintring 2016

Here’s a little something I first posted in Falltring (roughly Septemberish) 2005:


Update From The Front

Tuesday, 26 Falltring 2005

We aren’t sure if there are many of you out there who have even heard of the Veggie Van, much less keep up with its’ adventures in traveling around the country and promoting biodiesel as an alternative to petroleum based fuel.

However, we have to tell you that Josh Tickell has been busy in the last few weeks helping out with NOLA disaster recovery*. Here’s the latest update on his activities, as well as a request for some assistance. If you live in the Altanta area, we would like to ask that you pay particular attention to this message:

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your continued donations and support for our relief work in Louisiana. If you are reading this email, then our ship has passed the Gulf oil derricks and dipped back into cell phone coverage, and we are likely close to, or inside of the mouth of the Mississippi River. It has been an amazing voyage and I will soon have updates available on my blog at

Until then, we need help organizing the next portion of the Veggie Van’s trip across the Southeast.

We are in need of the following:

1) A car and driver to follow the Veggie Van from Lake Charles, Louisiana to Atlanta, Georgia. We will depart from Lake Charles on Wed. Sept. 21 and arrive in Atlanta on Saturday Sept 24. (This may slide forward a day depending on conditions). Car and driver will travel with
a cameraperson to get shots from the road. We will be staying with families affected by the Katrina disaster. This is semi-voluntary work. We will pay for your food, fuel and take care of your accommodations as well as give you $25/day.

2) A qualified diesel or truck mechanic in Atlanta, Georgia that can take receipt of the Veggie Van upon arrival. Known problems so far include a coolant hose that must be replaced and a leaking brake system. Other problems may arise with the old van before she lands in

3) A friend who can offer two or three people a place to stay in Atlanta for one night.

4) A safe place to keep the Veggie Van in Atlanta for about a month. The van is 21 feet long, 8.5 feet wide and 8 foot 8 inches tall.

Please let us know if you can help us on this incredible voyage by emailing the item you can help with and your contact details to:

And don’t forget to read my blog and listen to my audio updates on

Thank you!

Josh Tickell

We wish Josh all the best in his efforts, and ask once more: if you’re in metro Altanta, and you can give him and his group some assistance, please consider doing so. You’ll be glad you did!

* – amazing how progressives seem to be helping out without even being asked, or being concerned about their profit margins on the recovery work. Funny how that works…


I am happy to report that Josh is still around and interested in helping anyone who would like to try and tyransition from fossil fuels to more sustainable alternatives. I have sent a message and might even update the studio audience if I get any information to update you with.

Share and Enjoy!

What is Fourteen In Internets Years?

Tuesday, 10 Wintring 2016

…because right around now in 2002 I first posted to my first website on the wild world web and joined blogtopia (y! sctp!). But now I have seemingly grown tired of screaming into the wilderness here on my site.

However, all is not lost! there’s this Twitter thing; turns out a long time heavyweight liberal ex-blogger and I enjoy bouncing our mental savagery against each other and I’ve hammered meself a few hypocritical farging Republicant iceholes and worked off some stress while trying to act as a basic force for good in our time. So there’s that…

Not sure when I’m coming up for air again, but it’s also too almost time to start getting this year’s Xmas MegaMixx together, so if you would like to email me any requests for Xmas songs to be included in this year’s mix, fire away.

More Quick Questions To The Traitourous Hypocritical Republicant Trumplings Who Cast Even More Hypocritical Allegations On The Character Of The Democratic Candidate For President Of The United States Of America

Tuesday, 28 Sweltring 2016

I notice yet more streams of projectile propaganda excrement coming from the usual vacuous pieholes regarding the Clinton Foundation, even more emails – maybe even up to 100 thousand in total! – and junta-like threats of imprisoning political opponents from the campaign of the Orange Julius.

Funny – when the Ray-Guns were selling White House favors, when both PapaDoc and BabyDoc did it, you said nothing.

Also too, almost equally (but even more tragically) funny – BabyDoc lost millions of emails during the illegal immoral war in Iraq. And you blew it off like it was no big deal, and why should anyone even think about bringing it up?

Besides wondering how you can look yourself in the mirror every morning, once again I wonder why you think anyone cares what hypocritical nonsense you spew now?

Inquiring minds want to know…

Quick Question To Any Traitourous Hypocritical Republicant Trumpling Who Questions The Health Of The Democratic Candidate For President Of The United States Of America

Saturday, 26 Sweltring 2016

Why were you silent when you knew Ronnie Ray-Gun had Alzheimiers while running for president in 1984? Why did you say nothing while his cabal ran the country for the rest of his presidency while he drooled quietly into his jellybeans?

And why do you think anyone cares what hypocritical nonsense you spew now?

Inquiring minds want to know…

Minor Correction From The Funny Farm News Burro

Saturday, 12 Sweltring 2016

In the previous post, this website refereed to the Caligula Combover as a Mafia Don – which, if he were, he would not be doing any of the idiotic crap he has been in the first place. No one here wishes to disparage any organizations that might be offended by being considered to be willing to consider the Short Fingered Vulgarian as a member.

While unsure whether Forrest Drumpf still owes a favor to the american mafia, or owes a metric farkton of money to the russian mafia, or both, The Funny Farm News Burro wishes to refer to Agent Orange as Bought And Owned By The Mafia Don instead of Mafia Don.

Quick Questions To The pResidential Campaign Of The Short Fingered Trumperor That The Republicants Should Be Ashamed To Be Inflicting On The American People

Friday, 10 Sweltring 2016

Besides being major league arseholes to anyone approaching my level of distaste for the trainwreck you laughingly call a party platform, your town halls*, your press conferences**, and your ever-shifting Policy positions***, I’m wondering if there are still foreigners who are receiving email solicitations from your campaign. Maybe a Trumpling would care to point me to somewhere an update on the situation can be found?

Also, too – I understand that people are unable to stop recurring donations to your campaign once they have started. As a computer programmer who could fix something like that in less time than it took you to embarass yourself with your shameful behavior to the families of military veterans, I’m wondering if you can still pass this off as a bug to the patsies who got phished into that scam…

Which brings me to the real question I have: no matter how many times I unsubscribe to receive any communication from your general direction, no matter how much I report you to Hotmail as a phishing scam, no matter how much I block your steaming loads of Republicant kimchi – I still receive daily emails from your slanderous propaganda outlets. Multiple emails. Every day.

I’m wondering if you think that this is a Yuuuuuge strategery, an amaaaazing strategery, or a fantaaatstic strategery in terms of how likely this will make me want to consider any Republicant ever for any office for the rest of my voting span? Do you think that the Nigerian prince scam is a good internets business model?

Inquiring minds want to know…

* – which are so unlike the “town halls” that you meticulously planned to disrupt proceedings when it didn’t suit your agenda to cause some to wonder if doublethink has now been incorporated into Republicant Party lingo by Newtie and the Boyz

** – which have also taken the term “press conference” to hitherto unknown realms as far as reality is concerned…

*** – speaking of which, it is interesting that no one seems to be constantly questioning the Mafia Don about his silly wall which is probably hundreds of feet high by now with super nega-ray scanners that will identify humanoids before they get within 100 feet of the border and let the good ones (cough) through so they can get to their jobs on time…

Quick Note To The Democratic Party And The Hillary Clinton Campaign

Thursday, 25 Promise 2016

If you *really* want to piss off all the progressives and make them think more than twice about Lord Short Thumbs as a protest vote, by all means consider Tim Kaine or any other whitebread conservative Yellow Dog Democrat you can dredge and prop up next week in Philly*.

However, if you want to think outside of the box, and could get any of the following to consider running with Hillary as veep, it would be a lot better than Kaine / Vilsack:

John Hickenlooper
Charlie Crist
Barack Obama**
Sherrod Brown
Ken Salazar

I would also, as someone who finds the Democrats waaaay not liberal enough, suggest someone like Michael Moore, if you could convince him, to run. He would be perfect to counter Trumpian shenanigans…

But please please please don’t pick some conservative wannabe Republicant to be your running mate and it would be nice if at least one of the major political parties stopped punching down at the dirty hippies for a change. Just sayin’…

* – with the possible exception of Grampa Joe Biden – if you could convince him to run again…

** – although I would prefer to let him sit out there until Hillary gets a bullet proof Senate majority so that she could nominate him for Supreme Court Justice…

Quick Note To President Obama And The Democratic Party

Friday, 1 Priming 2016

You should publicly announce your nominee for the Supreme Court Justice position vacated by that traitorous Republicant shill Antonin “Fat Tony’ Scalia as soon as possible. In fact, you should tweak the Republicant’s noses with it. And tell the american people that you have candidates lined up for nomination if the Republicants deny this one; each more liberal than the last. Then tell them that Clinton and Sanders have both agreed to put your name in for the nomination in 2017 once they are electorated. Just to watch their heads explode.

If I might make a suggestion, perhaps you would consider the former 42nd president of these United States, William Jefferson Clinton, to fill Fat Tony’s seat on the Supreme Court. Just a thought…
