Gray Spaces - Soldier's Sunset

I didn't think this would look that good on a shirt, so I made a print (poster) instead.  Should I put this on a shirt, too?  I don't know.  You tell me.

I remember the Reagans

Stick this in your Stem Cell and smoke it, Georgie

It really looks good on those reglan jerseys

and I made a simpler red, white & blue design too

McDLT posted this link on Plastic: Rock ... Paper ... Saddam!  It's like my Mr. Hat but more involved and it's intensely funny.

In Miami - Making a federal case of being stupid drunks

In Miami today, a federal grand jury indicted two former America West pilots for operating a passenger jet airplane while intoxicated. Just hours before the 2002 incident, pilots Cloyd and Hughes were actually videotaped partying in a Coconut Grove district bar, Mister Moe's, until 4:30am when credit card receipts showed that their $142 bar tab was paid.  Later that morning, security at Miami International Airport alerted officials that they smelled alcohol on the two pilots and their flight was turned back to the gate before its 10:30am scheduled departure to Phoenix with 124 passengers.  Both were still legally drunk later that afternoon when police gave them breathalyzer tests.

I seem to remember Jay Leno making fun of these two idiots for weeks.

It's as easy as 3-4-5, Jeb!
In Orlando - Jeb Bush has a Dan Quayle moment

Jeb Bush, Dubya's little brother and governor of Florida, has the math skills of a Republican.  The self-described education governor who weaseled a tax-funded private school voucher plan into Florida schools under the FCAT testing system scheme was asked an impromptu FCAT question by a student during a photo op at a local high school.  Florida students must pass the FCAT test to graduate high school.  Jeb Bush stammered and then mumbled the wrong answer.

The intrepid student, Luana Marques, said she thought to ask the governor the FCAT question as a kind of a joke because she figured since he's the one calling for the use of the controversial FCAT testing, he should be able to pass it.  After listening to Jeb Bush launch into a lengthy defense of his FCAT system after he got it wrong, Marques commented, "I think I offended him.  I don't think he had much a sense of humor."

Like, DUH, Luana.  He's a Bush.  They're never wrong.

In Milwaukee - God's mysteries and ignorant fools.

Ray Hemphill, 47, who prayed and sang over 8-year-old Terrance Cottrell's chest as parishioners held him down on Aug. 22, 2003, stands trial for felony physical child abuse.

Terrance, who was diagnosed with autism at age 2, hated to be touched and was often unable to express his needs, according to previous testimony. Terrance died after receiving the 12th in a series of prayer services from Ray Hemphill.

The boy's mother, Patricia Cooper, and two other female parishioners told investigators that they made the child lay on his back on the floor of the strip-mall based church. They then helped to restrain him while the defendant laid perpendicular across Terrance's chest for almost two hours, praying and whispering aspersions at the devil into the boy's ear.

David Hemphill, 63, was not in attendance that evening, but he told jurors he gave his brother permission to perform the exorcisms as an attempt to save the boy from what they believed was demonic possession.

Pastor David Hemphill testified Thursday that his brother has the ability to cast out devils and says God claimed the autistic boy's life, not his brother, Ray.  If convicted, Ray faces up to five years in prison.

Personally, I think that prison time is the wrong punishment.  The entire strip-mall parish should all be neutered, lobotomized or euthanized.  Or, maybe it is just God's will that someone should pummel these friggin' idiots' brains in like baby fur seals.

Knee-deep in PiG SHIrT

Listen to the Pig!
So now that I have your attention ...

Meet The Pig.  I'm going to see if he'll fly.

Here's the deal: Help me think of things The Pig might say, and if it is funny enough, I might just put it on one of Listen to The Pig T-shirts.

Now just to explain a little further:

Pigs are dirty. 
Pigs are filthy. 
This pig can even be a little naughty.  

Like movies, Listen to The Pig Shirts on zazzle can be 'rated' G, PG-13, or R.  I plan on putting many Listen to The Pig designs on shirts in each category.  So, don't let the rating system inhibit your imagination -- say anything you want -- and I'll deal with the rating of it, if need be.

Here are a few G/PG-13 examples that come to mind as I type this:

Listen to The Pig -- and The Pig says,
"A messy room is the sign of an uncluttered mind"
"A cluttered desk is the hallmark of an executive"
"Those aren't MY socks on the floor, asshole."
"Learn to cook. That's a garbage disposal, not a damn wood chipper!"
"Backhair isn't sexy on your mama."

And you can have the most fun helping out with some R-rated ones.

When I think about the Listen to The Pig design, I imagine some fat sleazy balding guy planted in his NASCAR armchair spilling his can of beer when he jumps up to yell, "C'mon, you bitches!  Dance for daddy!!" while watching the national high school cheerleading squad competition on ESPN.

So bookmark this permalink and try to imagine what would that guy, himself, would say -- or what you might say about him.

The bottom image here is a thumbnail of the design I finally was able to finish this morning.  I was up all night trying to get what I always envisioned in my twisted little mind for Listen to The Pig idea onto a 1800 by 2100 pixel image.

Whatever obnoxious thing you may think of for what the Pig says will go into the cartoon word balloon I've put on top of the likeness of that oddly familiar yellow thing (which will remain nameless for legal reasons) that you -- or one of your kids -- may have played with as a small child.

You see, I feel it's my task, duty, and burden to utterly obliterate any remaining happy and innocent childhood memories onto which you might still be clinging.
