Overnight Open Thread

Now ribbed/barbed for your pleasure/horror.

Flamethrower vs. Fire Extinguisher:

Cletus and Jeb havin’ a go of it in the backwoods. No pigs were squealed in the production of this video. At least as far as we know. A little more about the uber-expensive cameras involved in the video shoot here, if you’re into that sorta’ thing. Sick bastards.

Some other stuff down below. Much like Leonidas’ queen, you will not enjoy this.

31st Anniversary of the Start of the Iranian Hostage Crisis:

From The Jawa Report and passed along by Maet, who misses all of you terribly over the weekend. When not in his Primal Scream Therapy sessions that is. Which ironically he’s in because of you.

In case you want to brush up on your Iran Hostage Crisis history here’s your quick Wikilink. You may recall that a few months after the embassy was taken, Rabbit-Warrior-In-Chief, President Carter, authorized Operation Eagle Claw in an attempt to rescue the hostages, yet that resulted in catastrophe and cost the lives of 8 American servicemen. Here Mr. Carter explains the failure of this “humanitarian mission” (his words):

I’d give him some small credit in that he sorta’ manned up to it at the time, though time and again he comes back to “mechanical failures” as an excuse rather than owning up to his weak support for the military during his tenure.

But whatever small credit I might give him gets flushed down the drain when I see this:

Just one more helicopter. Right.

Or this video. (Embedding is disabled...sorry)

Military adventurism. Uh-huh. And I like how Mr. Nobel Peace Prize keeps saying that “I had 60 people in Iran” during the hostage crisis, being diplomatic and stuff. They were fucking hostages! About the best thing they could be negotiating for at the time was for their bindings to be loosened and perhaps an extra portion of flat bread each day, you simpering idiot. I mean, “Mr. President.”

But as bad as all that was, what's truly unforgivable is that due to the Iranian Hostage Crisis, the following plague of bad hairpieces and self-righteous commentary posing as news analysis was unleashed upon the land for 25 or so years:

Ick. Pallette cleanser?

Speaking of Killer Bunnies…

Out on the wind-swept plains of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, authoritehs have trapped a highly radioactive rabbit.

”TRI-CITIES, Wash. (AP) - A radioactive rabbit was trapped on the Hanford nuclear reservation, but there is no sign any people were exposed to the animal.”

“Washington state Health Department workers with the Office of Radiation Protection have been searching for contaminated rabbit droppings. None have been found in areas accessible to the public, regional director Earl Fordham said Thursday.”

“Officials suspect the rabbit sipped some water left from the recent demolition of a Cold War-era building used in the production of nuclear weapons, the Tri-City Herald reported Friday. Contaminated animals occasionally are found at the nuclear reservation, but more often they are in the center of Hanford, far from town.”

This all sounds strangely familiar…

Anteatereh Lap Dance (because kittehs have jumped the bacon, that’s why, so quit yer bitchin):

I wonder what the tip rate is, like half a cup of ants maybe? Do the anteaters have extra-small g-strings that you can slip individual ants under?

And now we Come Around Full Circle:

Because I mentioned Primal Scream Therapy above that means we have to have a Tears For Fears vid since they were supposedly into that. But you can haz the old literal version of “Head Over Heels” instead of an actual video. I'm in a kindhearted mood tonight due to the whole Keef thing...

Now run along and play nice with your fellow thread-mates you little scamps.
