But Gino, isn't it fun watching them foam at the mouth with their PDS?

Gino said...

i was talking about her. her gig is up.

tully said...

She's just milking one half for all the money she lost on account of the other half. I'd like her to get as much money as possible so she can leave us alone and devote time to her family and to her personal development. If that means serving tea to some evolutionary prototypes, so be it.

"her gig is up."

I'm sure their PDS will last for years, at least long enough for them to invent another boogieman.

I caught a bit of Sarah doing her thing for John McCain on the tube

Was it just me or did anyone else notice that she was in a Dominatrix outfit.......


Rather fitting I thought :o)

Chills

I thought about unfitting her. heh heh heh

tully said...

She is SUCH a waste of perfectly good male-chauvinist humor.

As for Wikipedia's definition, it should be:

"'Jumping the shark' is an idiom..."

Damn Philistines! Jumping the shark is what the Fonze did in season five. You can use it as a subject, but when said subject is being acknowledged as an idiom, you bracket the idiom with inverted commas. This is grade school shit!

Hey your blog is behind a content warning now! What the fuck is up with that?

tully said...

Brian: I suspect it has to do with the comments in this shithole containing a certain number of fucking expletives.

While the warning will undoubtedly get annoying after some time, for now I'm just appreciating how much more badass Gino's blog just got.

If you can not be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.............................................

I like that quote. :^)

Regarding PDS/jumping the shark, people were polarized about this long before she started stumping for McCain. Not a jumping the shark moment IMO.

Incidentally, Happy Days went on for five more seasons after the shark-jumping episode, didn't it? Absurd as the episode was, and as much as it may have seemed the end of the artistic merit of certain members of the writing staff, this fact might well suggest that Sarah Palin is here to stay. There are plenty of Americans whose default station is Fox News, and the way her programming mainly seems to center on these stories of "Real Americans" (allowing her to do what she does best: stroke common-folks' egos instead of engaging people in debate) she can probably milk her Fox gig for a couple of years, if she wants.

And God-willing, while doing so she doesn't bring Scott Baio into the picture. I'm sure she could make a woman of her age warm and fuzzy down there, but he just doesn't have within him the life to breath into another TV show. I suspect he'd be more welcome on MSNBC.

tully, you enjoyed watching those episodes of Happy Days after he jumped the shark, eh.
