Gator vs. Pickup Truck

Gator vs. Pickup Truck

or

Another Critter That Just Shouldn’t Be Messed With

This video clip NEVER gets old —

Those who have already installed youtube-dl need only copy and paste the following into their command-line interface for a copy of their very own —

youtube-dl https://youtu.be/ynhumAumc8Q

I first saw this clip on Facebook (no audio on the FB version, apparently), and later tracked it down on YouTube. The YouTube clip is dated 21 May 2015 — over three years ago.

Either way, hats off to this particular gator, who decided that he (?) wasn’t going to take any more nonsense from the guy in the pickup truck.

I just love the way that the gator just lays there in front of the truck, holding the severed bumper cover in its teeth, as if saying to the driver, “You want some more of me, bozo? Bring it and see what happens.”

All the guy had to do was leave the gator alone, and he probably wouldn’t have had the front end of his truck getting tore up. Hope it was worth it.

Requiring the Callow Performance

Filed under: Dark Side, Humor, Media, Politics, Principles, Viewing — mikewb1971 @ 11:58 PM (23:58)

I would have posted this for publication last week, but Sunday was, well, April Fools Day, and this is serious subject matter to be considered here.

Politicians need to learn their place, and stick to it.

Too often, they see themselves as “shepherds” of the general population, and that same population as “sheep” to be herded, fattened up, slaughtered and sheared as the “shepherds” see fit.

And so we have modern political campaigns, as various factions of “shepherds” compete for the favor and attention of the “flock.”

Thus, my proposal is as follows —

Anyone newly elected or appointed to public office should be required to first complete a performance akin to that of the fictional British Prime Minister Michael Callow in the Black Mirror episode “The National Anthem”.

Specifically — they should be required to have sexual intercourse with a livestock animal on live television before taking office.

Political Classholes of the Muslim and Jewish persuasions should be required to do the deed with pigs, just as Hindu applicants should be required to get their groove on with a bull or cow.

Don’t like it, Classholes?

Fine, then — walk away and decline to be seated as a public official.

Otherwise, if you want a “career path” of screwing over the Great Unwashed, it seems only fair and proper that you should get a taste of what it’s like before you’re enthroned in public office.

ALWAYS remember Lord Acton’s postulate from 1887. NO ONE, regardless of partisan affiliation, professed beliefs, office held, whatever, is immune to this —

I cannot accept your canon that we are to judge Pope and King unlike other men, with a favorable presumption that they did no wrong. If there is any presumption it is the other way against holders of power, increasing as the power increases. Historic responsibility has to make up for the want of legal responsibility. Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority: still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it. That is the point at which the negation of Catholicism and the negation of Liberalism meet and keep high festival, and the end learns to justify the means.

John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton, Letter to Mandell Creighton (5 April 1887)

Parts in BOLD type are as found in the Wikiquote article

And who knows? Maybe the Political Classwipes might actually enjoy this particular prerequisite to taking office?

Trump and Jefferson Tag-Team the Lamestream Snoozemedia

Filed under: Dark Side, Humor, Media, Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:59 AM (06:59)

Much has been made lately from a 38-second YouTube clip in which Donald Trump knocks “CNN” to the floor at WrestleMania 23.

In particular, the CNN staff seem to view this as an existential threat.

If the talking heads and executives at CNN took a look back to history, they would find that The Donald isn’t the first First Executive to disparage their profession. For example, the following quote —

“To your request of my opinion of the manner in which a newspaper should be conducted, so as to be most useful, I should answer, ‘by restraining it to true facts & sound principles only.’ Yet I fear such a paper would find few subscribers. It is a melancholy truth, that a suppression of the press could not more completely deprive the nation of its benefits, than is done by its abandoned prostitution to falsehood. Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day. . . . I will add, that the man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them; inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer to truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods & errors. He who reads nothing will still learn the great facts, and the details are all false.”

— Thomas Jefferson, Letter to John Norvell (11 June 1807)

Rather repetitive fuck, isn’t he?

I am a low-paid employee and after having spent a big portion of my salary every month towards repayment of my debts, I cannot manage necessary expenses of livelihood. Even the fees of my school-going children are running in arrear and I am burdened with heavy expenditure every month. This different situation has mentally paralysed me and my family making my life very miserable.

I have therefore no alternative but to seek your kind favour of financial assistance so that I may meet the basic necessities of life.. May Allah shower you his blessings!

Monkeys Humping Sporting Goods

Filed under: Dark Side, Fun, Humor, Politics, Viewing — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:32 PM (21:32)

Over on Facebook, the proverbial football-humping monkey was invoked —

Just for grins and giggles, I ran a YouTube search for monkeys fucking footballs . . .

. . . but all I found was a monkey humping a basketball

. . . and another monkey humping a bowling ball.

Does Trump Arouse You?

Filed under: Dark Side, Fun, Humor, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:59 AM (00:59)

No, Trump doesn’t arouse me in any way, but apparently he does get those who claim to hate and fear him a bit on the frisky side, as evidenced by this letter to Dan Savage’s Savage Love column —

I’m a longtime fan – reader and listener – and part of the 47 percent of white women who did NOT vote for Donald Trump. To say I’m disappointed, horrified, scared, and mad about the election is woefully insufficient. I donated $100 to Planned Parenthood this morning because I honestly felt like there was nothing else I could do. That being said, I wanted to share that I had one of the most weirdly charged, hottest, and sexiest orgasms. A little buzzed (dealing with those election results) and sad, my boyfriend and I turned to each other for consolation. One thing led to another, and before I knew it, we were fucking as Trump came on the TV to give his acceptance speech. As that orange blowhard spewed more bullshit about being our president, I rode my boyfriend’s big, beautiful dick until I came. It was the perfect way to say, “Fuck this. Now fuck me.” I encourage all your readers to fuck out the stress from this election. Yes, we should donate and volunteer and speak up and protest and vote and not give up hope, but we should also keep doing it and taking care of each other. Because love trumps hate, and fucking trumps . . . well, I’m not sure what fucking trumps. But it sure makes life better.

– Justifiably Unsettled Lass Intensely Emoting

And then Savage doubles down on the lust born from hate or fear of Trump, as demonstrated by “JULIE” —

It’s important to practice good self-care in the wake of a traumatic event – the election qualifies as a traumatic event – and going by the definition of self-care at GoodTherapy.org, fucking the living shit out of someone qualifies as self-care: “Actions that an individual might take in order to reach optimal physical and mental health . . . Self-care [includes] activities that an individual engages in to relax or attain emotional well-being, such as meditating, journaling, or visiting a counselor.”

They’re too polite over at GoodTherapy.org to include “fucking the shit out of someone” on their list of examples, JULIE, but what you did on election night – which just so happens to be the exact same thing I did on election night – certainly meets all the criteria.

And if anyone out there who did the same on election night – fucked the shit out of someone – is feeling the least bit guilty, please know that millions of Americans did the exact same thing after 9/11. We used a different term to describe all that post-9/11 fucking: “terror-sex,” which New York magazine defined as “urgent, unguarded, end-of-the-world coitus inspired by that day’s sudden jolt of uncertainty and fear.”

I want to thank you for writing, JULIE, and I want to second your recommendation: Sex, partnered or solo, makes life better – and people shouldn’t feel guilty about fucking someone else and / or fucking / jacking / dildo-ing themselves at this uncertain and fearful moment in our nation’s history. Yes, we must donate and volunteer and protest and vote, all while reminding ourselves daily that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. And we must commit to defending our friends, neighbors, and coworkers who are immigrants (documented or not), Muslims (American born, immigrants, or refugees), people of color, women seeking reproductive health care, trans men and women seeking safety, lesbian and gay men seeking to protect their families, and everyone and everything else Trump has threatened to harm, up to and including the planet we all live on.

But we must make time for joy and pleasure and laughter and friends and food and art and music and sex. During the darkest days of the HIV / AIDS epidemic, when Republicans and religious conservatives controlled the federal government and were doing everything in their power to harm the sick and dying, queers organized and protested and volunteered and mourned. We also made music and theater and art. We took care of each other, and we danced and loved and fucked. Embracing joy and art and sex in the face of fear and uncertainty made us feel better – it kept us sane – and it had the added benefit of driving our enemies crazy. They couldn’t understand how we could be anything but miserable, given the challenges we faced – their greed, their indifference, their bigotry – but we created and experienced joy despite their hatred and despite this awful disease. We turned to each other – we turned to our lovers and friends and sometimes strangers – and said, “Fuck them. Now fuck me.”

We didn’t eradicate HIV / AIDS, the disease that was sickening us then, but we fought it to a standstill and we may defeat it yet. The disease that now sickens our nation is different. We may never eradicate racism and sexism and hatred. But fight it we will. And don’t listen to anyone who tells you that music and dance and art and sex and joy are a distraction from the fight. They are a part of the fight.

So why aren’t there any blog posts from conservative or libertarians expounding on their fear or hate of Hillary Clinton making them horny?
