  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Holy Mother…….my heart is palpitating……… and it took me 5 minutes to type this with the errors and corrections……O….M…..G……

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Yes, I’ll take fries with that. Damn the cost, calories, or cholesterol.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    If there’s a DDQ BBQ place in Texas that has waitresses like that for real, I’m SO there tomorrow.
    HERE. JUST TAKE MY MONEY. ALL OF IT.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Yeah….if I were Damon I’d look like that too.

  • JTC

    Turn around? TURN AROUND?

    Ahhhahahah!

    Yeah, he’s fried.

  • Did the Orlando theme park vacay about two weeks ago. On the way home, stopped by a McD’s in…Ocala?…for brunch. The kiosks were already set up, just not operational yet. I had the impression from the placards on ’em that they’d be ready and working by Christmas or New Years…

    • Bill M

      Yep, it’s just a matter of time. Used a kiosk in Oregon about two years ago. I think it was part of the test program. Worked fine.

  • NotYetInACamp

    OY!

    OI!

    OY!

    Wha……..? Fries…….? Aaaaa………

  • WayneM

    Hard to write poetry, even doggerel, when distracted… Blood rushed from one head to the other now I’m kinda distracted…

  • jackdeth72

    Ummmmm….

    So this is what being Gobsmacked feels like…..

    You could park an Abrams tank behind Sam, Naomi and Jan….

    And No One would see it!

    • MJ Larkins

      Words fail me.

      Words fail Damon too…

  • Bosco

    I’m sorry, Y’all say something? I couldn’t hear ya over the sound of their breasts.

    • Swansonic

      What?!?

  • Interventor

    Ai! Chihuahua! Que Chicas! My vision just returned.

  • Pamela

    I’m just going to sit back in a dark corner, sip tequila and keep score on how many of the crowd get tossed out on their ears for russian hands and roaming fingers.

    • Vince

      Shoot I just want to sit in the dark corner to enjoy the show(s).

    • Lucius Severus Pertinax

      I’m just going to sit back here with Pamela. 😉

    • GWB

      I wouldn’t mind sitting in a dark corner with Pamela. Not a bit. Bet I could honestly ignore the waitstaff if I were.

    • Grunt GI

      There must be a marvelous poem to go with that final frame, no?

    • Pamela

      Anyone for a game of cribbage while we wait?
      Spades? Hearts? Strip Poker all red cards wild….

      GG no poetry today. Y’all just need to observe the DDQ Ladies.

  • Calvin

    Reminds me of a story about the First Iraq War. We had an allied airfield and all kinds of aircraft were orbiting waiting for a landing slot. Helos under 500 feet, followed by other types of aircraft to 15,000 (AWACS). The air traffic controller lost his situational awareness and ordered all aircraft to turn on their landing lights. Over a hundred aircraft lit up the pitch dark with high intensity lighting causing the controller to utter a four letter word describing feces and then he dropped the mic. This is another mic drop moment. For those interested, someone else picked up the mic and started shouting, “turn them off, turn them off” before order (and a sense of ignorance) was restored.
    This was from a book called “It’s not Hell but You Can see it from Here” (I may be slightly off on the title)

    • Swansonic

      Well, those are some real highbeams….

    • NaCly Dog

      That was a very good and funny book. I loved the story of the Army driver picking up prisoners. They were dismayed to discover she was female. The Iraqis started to run, stopped by a few bullets hitting ahead of them. “Mean American woman.”

  • **rubs eyes**
    Yep, they’re still there. Good.
    The eyes, I mean. Coulda swore they jumped out.

  • This is that which makes men shake.

  • Uhm, Jan? Yours are his, and the others don’t seem to care. Now, if you’re worried about Damon’s heart giving out…

  • Wil

    I’ll buy everything with that with a large tip too. Screw regrets, I’ll deal with them tomorrow.

  • Mogrith

    Uh no fries I think I just went supersized already…

  • Maze

    I’m not seeing why the automated kiosks are something to cheer. Can anyone elaborate?

    • JTC

      Not cheering so much as not looking away from a car wreck as the law of unintended consequences once again plays out in the world of clueless leftism. ‘Bots are spendy but once amortized work for much less than $15 hr., don’t screw up or screw around as much, and don’t spit (or worse) in the food of leos or other perceived enemies of the dazed and confused.

      • JTC

        Hmm. Agreement with most of that but I can’t figure out your math. This table indicates the $1.60 min. wage I earned in ’69 at my first real job at age 15 in an old-line hardware store would be about $10.50 today for unskilled, which is what I was then (but thanks to that job for skills I learned in that two years that are still genuinely useful and valuable today).

        https://www.measuringworth.com/uscompare/result.php?year_source=1969&amount=1.60&year_result=2015

        Anyway, different tables for other skill levels are shown, but we are talking burger flippers here. I’m sure it’s justified in that info you provided, but how’d you come up with $25?

        • JTC

          Crap, that was supposed to be in response to NYIAC under here.

        • NotYetInACamp

          We were over payed. 🙂

          2.75 to 19.90 by http://www.usinflationcalculator.com/
          i can’t remember what years. It was in the past. Pleistocene, i believe.
          (In 2015, the relative value of $2.75 from 19xx ranges from $15.30 to $57.60. (this was also at the non table results page.)
          Plus tips.
          Last time I checked was a couple of years ago I remember that it was about 22.50. being the net I just WAGed to $25. You get what ya pay for. And a lot of people don’t want to pay anything.

          The greatest and most efficient utilization of resources is where there is a profit involved. Not being an ideologue that will execute those who have one clause in their beliefs different from mine, i still believe that there must be a responsibility involved in the utilization of resources by the society. There have to be some rules for some reasons. but the current rule making that appears to be designed to end our economy are WAAAAAAY too many. though ultimately BUYER BEWARE and BUYER BE RESPONSIBLE do rule.

          Now am I in the right place. Remember LIES. DAMN LIES. AND STATISTICS. 🙂 Interpretation rules. 90% 0f the statistics on the web ar lies or WAG.

          • JTC

            I’ve actually found that most legitimate consumers do want to pay for what they get, but are sick and tired of paying for what they don’t, as with $15 hr. burger flippers and coffee jerks.

            Certainly right about perception morphing to reality, that’s the entire basis of “progressivism”. Ultimately though, ya gotta pay the piper, as the cascade attests. Not to mention the collapse of unionism and the rise of the machines.

          • NotYetInACamp

            By design our wealth has been diminished by the cheapening of products. It is almost impossible to buy good product these days in many areas, including industrial products. Specifications and knowing who is doing the building rule.

            Also – Warning – that site appears to focus on government CPI for valuations. Government stats have been morphed into a twilight zone of their own. There also is the lesser quality factor in government statistics where whenever an inferior product replaces a good one, there is no change in the alleged value received. hamburger replaces steak, then is replaced by chicken, then is replaced by scavenge products and acorns the squirrels don’t get (squirrels replace chicken also).
            Statistics live or die or lie by the small print and manipulations. reality and truth have nothing to do with it.

            Consumers do want value. By design it is stripped from them.
            Chinese pricing. Those words mean so much. i remember when people on MB were traveling to China to strip the USA of being the source for product by sourcing items and building factories in China. And the USA helped them. (traitors) Trump understood this sort of thing as evidence by his full page ad in the New York Times opposing NAFTA, and the great sucking sound to come as told to us by Ross Perot. The man whose family was threatened by death.
            Trump is not elected yet until the paperwork is done.
            They still want a coup to keep those hundreds of trillions of income over the foreseeable future that the globalist want and have counted on. The bumpy ride is not over.

            Damon, above, is on a bumpy ride at the moment. Tolly wants to be.

    • NotYetInACamp

      SJW’s have been brainwashed to look at small parts of the whole and scream bloody blue sanctimonious hellish murder against the vast injustices by the racist hateful society and corporations and people.
      No matter that the paltry sum I earned as a bag boy n my first, and only, job for other than what was supposed to be for myself would be the equivalent to about $25 per hour today.
      That $25 then is more than current SJW’s would ever be able to get from any employer today outside of the government or a “charitable” foundation, even with their doctorate in (make it up, it would have sound made up 40 years ago) studies.
      The entire system has been changed to not support that current $15 and hour wage.
      The people not producing anything make every dollar earned worth less as the entire pie is less and is divided among more.
      If everyone were producing something, even at lower wages, then the entire system would be creating value that would naturally spread across the system. The value available to all would be greater. So it seems that the desires of communism and socialism are best obtained by the capitalist system which naturally creates greater wealth that is easily better distributed to all of the masses than under traditional methods desired by those insane lunatics that state that they desire to tear down society to create their own version of utopia.
      So it turns out that capitalism is the real socialism and communism.
      Personally interested people, especially moral ones, create the greatest wealth possible for all within the limits of any system.
      With a few joining explanations that there is worthy of a Nobel Prize in Economics. Even as is it is better than many Nobel Winners. Don’t even bring up the Peace Prize.

      And those SJW’s obtain the opposite of what they claim that they desire. They stress the system to no longer having any profit. Without profit all systems collapse. They collapse into the base level eventually, which none of us want to live in. Venezuela is crashing towards a base as unsustainable economic stresses are placed upon the systems which were there.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Does this count as “Published” for purposes of the Nobel Academy? 🙂

      • NotYetInACamp

        Try as I might, i cannot think of any other way to distribute the wealth of those three other than the means chosen by the honorable artist. In the alternate reality to this place people must personally chose their distribution of such reality, otherwise we have injustice, force, tyranny, oppression, and might makes what happens happen. Personal choice and rights and all of that, you know. ( I respectfully withhold any reference to existing cultures)

        • NotYetInACamp

          Those are not three easy pieces.
          Three men have found peace with them.
          One happens to be stupefied at that moment.

          • Pamela

            Keep an eye on him just in case he freezes in that position.

          • NotYetInACamp

            Quite possible. 🙂

            Over stimulation. The unexpected viewing of three beauties almost finished in their preparation for public presentation.

  • Hardball

    OO OO OO! Triple Mammies. Yes!

  • canuck49

    For sure nobody in this crowd, except for maybe Pamela, reads Playboy for the articles!!

    • Pamela

      I read it back in the 70s for hair and makeup tips, and the short stories.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Great short stories and articles. The cartoons were funnier than the New Yorker.
        Ideas were there that often were not widely available.
        Lovely nekkid women, too.

  • Pete231

    Uhhhh, didn’t make it to my bunk……

    • JTC

      Eww, TMI dude.

  • Pete231

    BTW, any chance of making that bottom frame a full pic . Need some new wallpaper for the screen….

    • Photoshop CS6, took about 5 minutes including boot up.

      My laptop is no longer safe for work, or for my better half to use. Being a laptop, it has a secondary use while staring at this picture…………

      Won’t share it or the process, I have a respect for digital property rights.

      Now if this were in one of the support packs 🙂

  • Bill M

    Damn! Just damn!!!!

    Reply to jackdeath72 from yesterday. Sorry for the thread jack. It was the LOH for light observation helicopter.

  • Neil Frandsen

    In the olden days, Playboy published interviews with Ma Murray, Jimmy Carter, and other folk, which resulted in my rethinking the impressions that the Media Mavens’ writings, and chatterings, has given me.
    :
    Nowadays, the ‘Net allows for seeing folks in x,y,z,t: this means that persons, such as Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump, are far more easy to understand! Trump’s very high IQ puts him in the same class as a previous Canadian Prime Minister, when talking with Media Mavens = Pierre Elliot Trudeau is reputed to have answered a reporters question “Why do you treat us with such distain?”
    with:
    “But, you are all so stupid!”,
    which was very likely, considering Pierre’s multiple accomplishments, including writing in academic journals, books, and for the popular press.

    • Bill G

      Also from Playboy’s Olden Days … it was in the Eighties that I learned of John Lott’s ‘More Guns, Less Crime’ via a review in Playboy.
      It was a fair review, too.

      • tomstockton

        Playboy also used to publish some good fiction, Jean Shepherd (sp? wrote “A Christmas Story”), Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, just to name a few. Had some pretty good cartoons, too… Been years since my better half “asked” me to not renew my subscription. Is the magazine even in print anymore? I read the centerfolds were gone…

        Regards,
        Tom Stockton

        • markm

          Playboy is still in print, but without the pictorials. It’s so much cheaper to put pictures on-line.

  • Steve_1066

    There are some things that will never be automated – thank GOD!

    A plenteous display of public pulchritude!

  • MasterDiver

    BOY-HOWDY!!! :o))

    Zar Belk!

  • Wood

    Can I get some shake to go with those fries? Seriously, a GIF of that would be amazing 🙂

  • Calvin

    When are we going to get 3D comics online?

  • Prescription FILLED. Thanks, Chris.

  • Bill G

    Superb artwork, and wonderfully showcasing the liberal”s inability to perceive that actions have consequences.

  • PaulS

    eon, have heard another version of “balls to the wall”, had to do with the governor system on old engines where as the rpm’s increased the spinning balls would rise against gravity and presumably provide a measure of the upper safe limit for operation.

    • Norm

      Eon’s is correct. There were typically three controls per engine. Throttle, fuel mixture (rich/lean) and prop speed. Bombers and cargo airplanes had them on a center console. “Balls to the wall” was either takeoff or “let’s get the heck outta here” power.

      With turbine power, we lost the mixture and prop speed controls, but the expression stayed on.

      • Old Codger

        Thanks for the update Norm, Eon. I never knew the derivation of the phrase but I understood that it meant going flat out, max speed. Small general aviation aircraft have separate throttle and mixture controls and prop speed as well when the aircraft had a variable speed prop.

        Even though I knew what it meant, when I imagined someone standing literally with their “balls to the wall” I couldn’t see how such a posture could represent maximum effort.

        Norm, I only “fly” MS Flight Sim but some of my model turboprops have separate prop speed and “condition” levers on the quad. Some turboprop models I have only have a power lever like on a jet. Obviously there is some sort of automation controlling/optimizing prop RPM and whatever the condition lever does.

    • Fudd

      You are talking about the phrase “Balls out” that goes clear back to the days of steam.

  • Grunt GI

    I think that’s called a six pack to go…

    Yup, service like those ladies provide at the DDQ can never be replaced…

  • JohnB

    My faith in humanity is restored. I love the female form. Yowsa!

  • Runnerzdad

    Jan seems to be missing her arms. I didn’t think there was enough room under that cape for both of them without at least the elbows showing.

    • Solaratov

      It’s a jacket; and she has her forearms behind her back. You can see the left arm – covered by sleeve.

  • JWG1313

    Excuse me while I wipe the drool off the entire front of my body!

  • RooftopVoter

    Chris let me thank you for the early Christmas present.

    We can die happy men.

  • JW

    I think I see a pattern here. Could it be.. 12 lovely days of Christmas?

    • Grunt GI

      Hear, Hear!!!

  • Borax

    Chris – I do believe you have redefined what a six pack is, 2 + 2 + 2 = 6. Thanx.

  • Old Codger

    Who was Damon trying to text? I can see why he kind of trailed off. I’m not sure that any man who could behold such a vision and not totally forget what he was doing truly qualifies as a man. Adult male homo sapiens (emphasis on “homo” 😎 ) OK but not really a man in my book.

  • Pamela

    Chris ~~ Is there a Doctor n the House?

    I think a round of blood pressure checks and EKGs just to be on the safe side are in order. Then there might be an issue with the eyes:

    • Don in AK

      And of course it’s a redhead! LMAO

      • Pamela

        Always a redhead makes the difference..

        • NotYetInACamp

          Redheads are dangerous, in a great good crazy dangerous way.
          My blond hair does not turn grey. As I get older my blonde hairs are turning red. ???????? !!!!!!!! LOOK OUT!

    • NotYetInACamp

      That always is a funny one.

      • Pamela

        I bet the Wolf was wishing he stayed away from Red’s Granny.

  • formwiz

    Next to Donald Trump, Ed Pingston is Conservative America’s most popular man tonight.

  • Pamela

    hmm interesting 😉

  • canuck49

    I stand corrected.
