That actually reads a lot like the "duck season/rabbit season debate." It's a good thing not all cartoon ducks sound the same.
"Debate" should not in quotes in 1.
Althouse is an old crone.
Yes, the results of brain damage are always depressing to see.
True fact (to the post, not comment 3). I would feel better now if I had the energy.
Here that, ogged? LB doesn't have the energy to be feminist and B is out today. Quick! Ass shots!
6: Please tell me that by ass shots you mean photographs rather than something that happens in an unsavory bar.
8: I dunno. Depends on what you have in mind.
Now there's an idea for the next meetup.
Yes, I was hoping that this wasn't a subspecies of body shot.
I like the part where she implicitly compares herself to Norma Desmond.
But Fontana Labs has made no argument! He merely points and mocks. How said that he is the authentic face of the left today.
How said that? Christ, what an asshole.
I did find a web page a while back that was devoted to pictures of Jessica Biel's ass. To put it another way, we're not even close to the top hit for that search.
But what does this have to do with "The meaninglessness of tenure"?
He's intellectually dishonest! Why should I waste my time? Bah! Look at meeeeeee!!!!!
Note that Jackmormon's comment was not in quotes.
I have an Althouse script generator on my hard drive.
so does Althouse
I have it on good authority that rugby players will, after a game, still sweaty and gungy, pour a beer down their backs, through their ass-cracks, and off their balls, into the waiting mouth of some other rugby player.
Was that intended for some other comment thread, Chopper?
Presumably it was a response to 8 et seq.
No, just a possible procedure for manufacturing something call an "ass shot."
I was thinking 21 to 16.
Did anybody else notice that Standpipe made the New York Times?:
3: Ms Althouse is not a crone, old or otherwise. Please do not denigrate the honourable wise women of the tribe by associating us with Ann Althouse. [Whose name, by the way, can be rearranged to "LOATHE ANN US".]
Just remember that the Old Wives of those eponymous tales got that way by outliving their
detractors enemies. We do not always do so unaided. Beware the Revenge of the Crones.
"Outliving," she says, but I think she means "poisoning."
3: A fascinating NYRB review (on a book about the witch craze in Baroque Germany, not about Althouse) suggests otherwise.
Witches can be seen as fitting into the larger category of "crones," whose social position and influence were below that of every other demographic group.
Regrettably, this can't really be said to apply to Althouse. Splitting hairs, perhaps, but let's maintain our standards, people.
Where is B? I haven't heard from her in a while. Is she OK?
Rob's got (a) covered, and I'm sure there was no shortage of people thinking (c).
LB - I know what its like when you can't work your way out of the box. Its not as much fun as sticking it to the man. I hope you feel better and that you can take some comfort in your many good deeds.
36 may be the nicest comment ever left on this blog. It should be deleted immediately.
That dialogue is a lot more fun if you imagine Althouse performing it with hand puppets.
Althouse's blog is more fun if you read it in a valley girl voice.
39: so's tax law, though, right?
Oh yeah, best of luck, LB, and hope you feel better soon.
Who's afraid of the Big Bad Brock?
Estate tax law is best read aloud after inhaling helium.
Read to oneself, the Generation Skipping Transfer Tax and related trust law is best read after drinking serious quantities of alcohol, after which "Crummey powers" just sounds like the description of a mediocre superhero.
Some day I shall compose a lyric poem On First Looking Into Chapter 14. Or not.
Am I the only one who first associates "ass shots" with skeet shooting?
37: I don't trust your judgement given that you can't see through the facade of Caroline Hoxby's awesomely fabulous statistical approaches to see the truly crumby data that too often lies beneath.
38 and thereafter, I just had a memory of stoned college room mates reading out loud about the Mannerists use of warmer tones in their painting from Jansen's History of Art - All of it sounds funnier if your stoned, or so I'm told.
