When tumbleweed attacks.

Hey! That's near where I live. I saw part of the Great Tumbleweed Migration of 2018, well... tumbling across the highway, headed to some obviously important destination to the north. About an hour later, there was a traffic warning over the radio to avoid that area.

Sam Duncan

“When tumbleweed attacks.”

Okay, everyone's thinking it.

“Crushing crayons in a hydraulic press.”

That's the most entertaining ten minutes I've spent in a long time. I have simple tastes.

I'd be desperately worried about a stray cigarette butt sending my house up in smoke.

Sing it!

WTP

Underwater choreography? I’m thinking of taking up underwater hockey. Anyone done this?

I was spared.

Thanos is a fool!

Hal

Incoming, duck.

Incoming, don't duck, just turn around at the right time.

---Fatty Arbuckle, some guy, and Buster Keaton.

Before and after, 1906.

From overhead, 1938.

I have played underwater hockey, albeit only for a couple of months. It was fun, if a touch rough on the knuckles. Getting to the pool for training was too much effort though.

I'm unconvinced by the dill gummies. If I want that great taste of dill pickle I eat a dill pickle. They're cheaper than the gummies for a start. And gummie sweetness isn't going to mix well with sour.

I presume that the market for them is Americans who think a strong tasting lolly with a non-sweet flavour is inherently funny. Best not to let them near acid drops, double salt liquorice or those tiny French anise things (all of which I adore).

I could perceivable enjoy a dill pickle pastille that I could suck on the way to work.

" Giants."

I foresee another movie with The Rock in the making!

Sam

Gorgeous Teacher, 1965.

That's hilarious.

Sam

I was also slain by Thanos, for the good of the Universe.

David

That’s hilarious.

It is rather marvellous.

Russians!

And on a completely un-related note: Unuseless Things.

I rather like the Pop Sticks(tm).

The tumbleweeds video reminded me a bit of the old blogosphere.

Every year, they head back to their ancestral spawning grounds in the Arctic.

Mags

I was spared by Thanos so I made it into work. Yay.

David

I was spared by Thanos so I made it into work. Yay.

No refunds. Credit note only.

Captain Nemo

Thanos killed me for the good of the universe. Although on the plus side, I no longer have to pay my (not inconsiderable) bar-tab. So swings and roundabouts, I guess.

David

Wait, what?

Oh goddammit.

MC

When tumbleweed attacks.

Someone in No. 37 told a really lame joke...

MC

Silent, kinetic sand-drawing machine.

Calling it Sisyphus makes it sound like it's not having fun...

Hector Drummond, Vile Novelist

Thanos told me that I was kind of cute and was I doing anything tonight? That's not supposed to happen, right?

WTP

I was spared by Thanos as well. That’s a good thing, right?

Farnsworth M Muldoon

The latest in blue jean fashion.

Jon Powers

I think Thanos is sparing everybody. I tested fate multiple times, and every time I was spared. Perhaps he has plans for us Shitlords.

David

I suspect Thanos knows your IP address.

David

Just pray he doesn’t discover your browser history.

Nikw211

Little Owen Jones appears to be a tad confused.

Tom

Thanos killed me for the good of the universe. Although on the plus side, I no longer have to pay my (not inconsiderable) bar-tab. So swings and roundabouts, I guess.

Although I am not a lawyer, I would posit that as you are probably alive in one of the many other Marvel universes, your bar tab is still payable in this one. Pray our host does not have interdimensional henchlesbians, which I've just thought would be a cracking name for an all-female punk band.

David

Little Owen Jones appears to be a tad confused.

Mr Jones is a fool and doomed to confusion. He also has a bad haircut and no discernible dress sense.

R. Sherman

FYI, the Thanos link is a trap. (I've been spared thrice, BTW). It's a means for David to weed out the miscreants among his commentariat.

If I did that there’d be no bugger here.

Speaking of toxic feminism. Apparently, wokeness requires we make everything really prickly, sour and resentful.

Wi Tu Lo

Keziah Daum, an 18-year-old from Utah in the United States, who has no Chinese roots, was accused of “cultural appropriation” after posting photographs on Twitter that featured her in a traditional Chinese qipao, or cheongsam.

"Struggle sessions and public denunciations are also Chinese cultural appropriation"

David

Heh.

Sam Duncan

“The latest in blue jean fashion.”

Well, on her...

And since everyone else seems to be reporting their fate at the hands of Thanos, I was slain. Of course I bloody was. Typical.

David

Today’s word is beefcake.

WTP

“The latest in blue jean fashion.”

And in the continuing quest to find something more useless than Owen Jones, the fly on those jeans fails at even that.

Governor Squid

The latest in blue jean fashion.

So instead of my wife complaining that her trousers have no pockets, she'll complain that they have nothing but?

Darleen

Today’s word is beefcake.

>_<

David

Someone fan Darleen. I think she’s fainted.

Adam

"Struggle sessions and public denunciations are also Chinese cultural appropriation"

I think it has roots in the Red Guards of the 1960s. Basically it is the same mob haunting Claremont, UCLA and other campuses today.

Sessions, however, has not been heard from on this topic...or any other. When Jeff Sessions recuses he literally recuses!

champ

I can't believe this happened; UC Berkeley commission says that conservatives were to blame when leftist students rioted in response to conservative speakers...

Farnsworth M Muldoon

They just won't give up, ‘The truth is that every body is a beach body’.

Yes, well, that is true, if the beach is visited only on a moonless night and vacant, advice given to me, and which I would share with these Ladies of Size.

“We wanted to show people bodies they don’t see every day.”

Sounds like something a pathology professor would say, but I digress.

Black Ball

Farnsworth I much preferred the original. Very much preferred. Now how many of these ladies in the latest advert would go out on a sunny day to visit their beach? Or would I be guilty of WrongThought by suggesting that the ladies in question were in it for purely financial reasons?

They're learning it earlier than college:

I've been spared by Thanos, so I've got that going for me.

In other news:

The world is finally ready for Marxism.

Shouts an Independent headline.

You see, the failures of all previous Marxoid experiments - catastrophic and murderous as they were - were in fact the fault of the world. And not, as one might suppose, the fault of Marxoid conceits and the types of people they attract.

Watchman

I used to think I might have qualified as possessing a 'beach body', but every time I went to the beach and laid down, well meaning beachgoers attempted to roll me back into deep water. "I can't find the blowhole on the top of his head: if you locate it make sure that you don't block it."

OK. I am obese, I'll admit it, so I don't blame the other beachgoers for their actions.

These days I really do have a beach body, and she does put the lotion on the skin so I don't have to use the hose very often.

Watchman

Oh, a /sarc on my last comment because of Poe's Law.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

OK. I am obese...

People just say I resemble Hindenburg, alas, not the one with the fancy mustache.

Your Saturday Stupidity:

Only Mexicans can celebrate Cinco de Quatro at Gonzaga U.

“Unfortunately, the celebrations have become less about the appreciation of Mexican heritage, and instead has become more about drinking and partying especially by non-Mexican individuals,” she [VP of Student Development Judi Biggs Garbuio] continued. “Because of this, there are many instances when Cinco de Mayo becomes a holiday that is full of cultural appropriation.

It appears VP Garbuio never went to a Cinco de Quatro party as they were never about "appreciation of Mexican heritage" any more than a St. Patrick's Day blowout ever was.

Meanwhile from the Antipodes, OPINION: 8% OF PRISONERS ARE WOMEN. THAT’S ABOUT 8% TOO MANY.

100 - 8 = ? Still sexist and misogynistic, of course.

Across the globe in North Yorkshire lives are saved from another dangerous scourge !

The scourge being nekkid wimmin on coffee mugs, a drowning due to the sudden absence of six volunteer lifesavers is a small price to pay.

PiperPaul

That Camera Hogg character is very grating.

"Leveraging tragedy and manipulating youth to advance a political agenda since..."

David

Hi there.

Via Julia.

The truth is that every body is a beach body

"If you're a backward boy or the apple of the eye of a pair of doting parents, why never say die: don't stuff your gut with soft marshmella, just tackle those highbars like a real hep fella." - Muscle Beach (1948)

PiperPaul

I have a beach(ball) body, mostly around the middle.

This is how I get around:


Haven't shaved for awhile either.

bgates

8% OF PRISONERS ARE WOMEN. THAT’S ABOUT 8% TOO MANY.

We won't rest until only 7.36% of prisoners are women!

Spiny Norman

That Camera Hogg character is very grating.

On the other hand, it seems the noodle-armed Twerpenführer quite enjoys the spotlight, and doesn't believe he's being manipulated by anyone.

Hal

[ Admires svelte and gazelle-like self in mirror. ]

. . . . entirely skittish and inclined to startled leaping about???

entirely skittish and inclined to startled leaping about???

There was the time I got my sleeve caught on a door handle and inadvertently threw coffee down a newly painted white wall.

Darleen

Pay off, so to speak, is last screen shot.

:::snort:::

David

Pay off, so to speak, is last screen shot.

What’s the hourly rate for a pretentious, know-nothing scold?

Col. Milquetoast

The original beach body ad was banned will this one also be investigated "to establish if it breaks harm and offence rules or is socially irresponsible"? Isn't it still objectification or are they assuming no would want to treat the rotund trio as objects?

Daniel Ream

Apparently I was spared.

The whole time I was watching the movie, I found myself thinking this all seemed familiar...

Farnsworth M Muldoon

More of the leftist ouroboros, male professor of "political theory" (I reckon that is another euphemism for Marxism) at some silly SJW educrat conference tells the world's oldest elevator joke, "professor" of gender studies gets him investigated for wrongthought.

The real joke is that these ninnies call themselves scholars.

Para Ingles Oprime Dos

Today, "Gorgeous Teacher" could not shown in schools as it is "problematic" on just about every imaginable dimension of problematicity.

Even the laugh track.

Today there would be shrieks of feigned horror and indignation in the background.

No "trigger alert" could possibly palliate the extreme pain and psychic shock the mere mention of this video would cause.

It would literally be worse than the Holocaust

Alex deWinter
Twerpenführer

Stealing that.
