    Let’s get intellectual.

    Let’s not.

    • Deplorable B Woodman

      You think any of the Double Dee Ranch women are a medium?

      • PaulS

        Size 6, but would look great in a 5. πŸ˜‰

      • JTC

        The part I’m looking at is definitely a large, about a 40 I’d say…DD of course. πŸ˜‰

  • Grunt GI

    Brains and boobehs. Potent combination in a woman.
    Especially a red head.

  • Mogrith

    ok add another book to my kindle. Oh I bought The Future Rhymes because of ad on here.

    • Kafiroon

      Didn’t buy that one but spotted an ad for one that interested me.
      Hey Chris! I have bought a few books through interest on DBD. Tell Amazon you need some kickback!

      • Chris Muir

        There is an dbd Amazon thingy here somewhere.

        • Fox2!

          Look at the top of the right hand column, under the days of DBD past.

    • Steve Kreitler

      I’ve read it twice- it’s a pretty good book. The author is Oleg Volk’s girlfriend. Don’t know who Oleg Volk is? He’s a champion of freedom for all!

    • Pamela

      Downloaded it for my Kindle

  • George J

    Not exactly Miracle on 34th Street, now is it…

  • texascarl

    Maybe not…but miraculous 38DD’s on Sam’s street is close enough for me

  • Pamela

    So are cattle prods needed when the Gods and Wannabes run amok while drinking and eating totally off the hook Q?

    Do they make tasers small enough to hide in thigh hi stockings?

    • Kafiroon

      Depends on what you want showing.
      I prefer a duster because I’m not pretty and unfortunately I now live in Fl. so hiding 12 ga. and etc. is out so…
      But yes, the running amok do believe they are gods. I still need the 12ga. for “puny god”s!

      • Kafiroon

        It was long ago, but Hobart Ground Power Units pack a number of huge capacitors. We were told to pull the power and take a long break before opening the panels. Course, I learned about them as a kid from an old model T cap.

        • Kafiroon

          Was supposed to be under Unca Walt. Just starting the coffee. Sorry.

    • Vince

      You could always charge a micro farad capacitor to 48 VDC.
      (Do not try this at home. I am a trained professional.)

      • Unca Walt

        (*snork*) You just triggered a SE Asia Games funny memory:

        GI’s playing volleyball. Solid Rule in volleyball: NO TOUCHING THE NET.

        To eliminate any arguments, we simply strung two thin copper wires parallel across the top.

        Connected to a capacitor the size of a beer bottle.

        NOBODY ever disputed this infraction ever again. Screams could be heard for a long distance. πŸ™‚

        • John

          Now THAT is rule enforcement.

        • Pamela

          They could have been thrown off the fantail instead

  • sigofmugmort

    “Urban fantasy” can get very strange at times.

    Then again, if Dionysus walked into The Place, Jake would just ask him what he’s having.

    • eon

      Drat. That was supposed to be my address.

      I TOLD him to rest the bloody thing!

    • Lucius Severus Pertinax

      No kidding! See- “The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul” , by Douglas Adams πŸ˜‰

      • John

        Is that the one where Arthur Dent gets into a disagreement with Thor and then invites him outside to settle the matter…while not bothering to remind Thor that they are on an FTL spaceship? πŸ˜‰

  • herdgadfly

    From yesterday’s cartoon, just to set the facts right: Julia Ioffe did not tweet that Trump was fucking his daughter. She tweeted : β€œEither Trump is fucking his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?”

    Condition #1 has no information by which to confirm nor deny but she is scheduled to have an office in the White House (the First Lady’s office actually) and she has already begun to lobby for her bad idea to have taxpayers provide paid maternity leave. That is likely to be nepotism.

    • Chris Muir

      Just to set the tone here:you’re being a parsing dick here,gadfly. Straighten up or buzz off.You are perilously close to Concern Trolling, got it?

      • Unca Walt

        I love it when you talk dirty.

    • Old Codger

      or he’s shirking nepotism laws

      I don’t understand “shirking” in this context. To my mind, “shirking” is failing to do some assigned task – truancy would be shirking to me. So far as I know, Obozo NEVER actually submitted a budget per the constitution. THAT would appear to me to be shirking on a grand scale.

      Did Ms Julia Ioffe mean he was ignoring said laws or violating them? And for that matter, is it illegal to allow Ivanka to have an office in the WH? Are there statutes in the U.S. Code prohibiting a sitting president from putting a relative to work?

      • John

        Obviously not.
        Jack Kennedy made his own brother Attorney General.

        • gruundehn

          The law was changed after that to prevent a future episode.

    • Old Codger

      Ah, Mr Gadfly, even a cursory scan of the news stories about Ms Ioffe’s firing would lead one to disagree with your assessment. Here are some headlines (bold) plus a tiny snip of the article.

      Julia Ioffe Fired Over Obscene Ivanka Trump Tweet

      Reporter Fired After Posting Offensive Tweet About Trump And His Daughter
      β€œWe understand how absolutely infuriating it is to have incidents like this tarnish…”

      Politico reporter fired for ‘gratuitous’ comic tweet suggesting Trump has sex with daughter
      Jewish reporter Julia Ioffe has been dismissed from political journal Politico for a tweet in which she says US President-elect Donald Trump likely having sex with daughter Ivanka in response to reports that she would be given a White House office where the First Lady normally sits.

      Looks like most everyone thought she was making an obscene remark about the P-E and his oldest daughter too. I think you are being a dick about this.

      • Kafiroon

        Thought she was immediately hired again by some other outfit I ignore.

    • Corvette

      Guess nobody remembers Attorney General Robert Kennedy. Seems to me he was related to the President and the left didn’t have problem with that.

    • OpenTheDoor

      @gadfly, more like botfly. How soon you forget the encroachment of the MIL on the top floor. I don’t remember Mrs. Robinson being on the lease or ballot.
      O’Baja is on record as saying he has no control over his MIL. That frog hair you’re splitting has already been split 4 ways.

  • NotYetInACamp

    Bacchus and his sacred servants and maybe some wild women maenads flush with wine may be present in the next room unfettering the followers. Dionysus enters into them and gives them joy and divine ecstasy, or brutal and blinding rage. Let’s hope for the joy and ecstasy.
    Let the show begin. It’s in the DDQ. Dionysus usually wanders in the woods, though his festivals did inspire most Greek plays.

    • Pamela

      Can I be the Bouncer? Pretty Please!
      I’ve tossed a few rowdy rascals out the door on their collective ears and behinds. Used a grind twist of a heel for those who couldn’t get the message.

      • NotYetInACamp

        As far as I am concerned, be the bouncer. You can throw them out as you please within your discretion.
        Let the entertainment commence. Onstage and off stage. All is the stage.

        • Pamela

          Very good and merry hijinks

    • Lucius Severus Pertinax

      Just wait till THOR shows up!!

      • Pamela

        The bigger they are…
        What’s the other part? Something about being hard and falling.
        Sure hope nothing breaks and is the bar stocked with mead?

      • MasterDiver

        I thought he stepped outside to settle a matter at Warp-9.

        • Pamela

          Can you do an emergency stop at that speed?

  • Double facepalm, for when a single is not enough.

  • Lobos

    Pretty good book. I read it a while back.

  • Bill

    Putin made me do it.

    It’s all Putin’s fault.

    • thundercloud65

      But Obama told him to ” Cut it out!”. I’m sure that had Vlad shaking in his boots. Probably in laughter.

    • Pamela

      It’s always someone elses fault

  • Bill G

    I hope the music isn’t being played by a dude with really hairy legs, cloven hooves and a ram’s horns with a set of reed pipes.

  • Wood

    @PaulS from yesterday

    Oops, my bad. These multi-day running conversations are tough to follow. Would be nice if we could check a box and be notified of new comments in order to stay current. On the other hand, I sure didn’t mind looking back through the past few days of conversation πŸ™‚
