    Once you get past the DD’s in the center frame and are thinking capitalistic thoughts again, DD’Q has a nice ring, don’tcha think?

    And as for beef, chicken, or pork, the answer is hell yes! And there’ll never be a need to ask, “where’s the meat?”

    And that brings us right back to the center frame again…mm mm good!

    Forgive this yankee, but I was under the impression that authentic Texan BBQ was only pork. Can an authentic Texan enlighten?

    • February 18, 2016 at 1:27 am

      In Texas they call beef barbecue. Of course, BBQ is pork.

    • February 18, 2016 at 6:57 am

      Brisket is the preferred cut of beef but we”ll barbeque anything including shrimp ane goat. North Carolina is the place that prefers only pork.

        There are actually rib places in NC that serve up beef, but the purists don’t like to admit it.

    At one time it was poor etiquette to answer a phone while you were having sex. Younger folks are so attached to their phones these days, I guess it’s no longer an issue.

      I’m a Florida boy, and it’s pork here, some beef ribs…I hear Texas is beef, mostly.Then there are all the sauces…thing is, I love ALL of it!!

      • February 18, 2016 at 1:15 am

        My point upthread exactly.

        Where’s the meat? Down at the DD’Q!

        Last time I was in Texas we ate beef, pork, goat, chicken, turkey and a couple of things I’m not sure of all cooked up just dandy.

      • February 18, 2016 at 8:06 am

        I’m surprised you missed the obvious “libs being into pork” joke there, Chris.

      I love ribs, and chicken is about the only meat I get because it’s affordable and you can do so many different things with it. But doggone, nothing beats a good brisket. So I’m going to say that classic BBQ probably does include beef.

      • February 18, 2016 at 1:30 am

        In Bama BBQ was always pork, except for our Jewish folk. Then, it’s chicken. It’s all good.

      • February 18, 2016 at 9:02 am

        Hey, as long as the chicken is on the rack below the pork it’s all even better. (“Chorkin” tm)

    • February 18, 2016 at 12:15 pm

      Harumphh! I used to get calls from my mother every day (HER idea, not mine) and since the calls came at random times and also considering the milieu, OSU in the late sixties, more often than not, my BF and I would be getting frisky. One time she asked why I was ‘breathing that way’. I told her I’d just run up the steps. Long pause — “What time of day might I call that would it be most convenient for you ?” She was MUCH more considerate after that episode.

  • February 18, 2016 at 12:31 am

    I’ve got no beef with this story arc about pork…

    Oh, the puns, the entendres, the sex. Like any discussion about BBQ; pork, chicken, beef. To me, it’s all good. So keep it up, Chris. And yes, that’s a pun, too.

    Hooters could use some competition. Is there a reader of this comic with the entrepreneurial chops to bring a business to market? “DBD’s DD BBQ” sounds like a niche waiting to be filled.

    Oh, BTW, I got in too late to post on last night’s discussion re “wasp spray” as substitute Mace.

    Please, don’t do that. Ever.

    Here’s why.

    From Wiki;

    Fly spray is a chemical insecticide that comes in an aerosol can that is sprayed into the air to kill flies. Fly sprays will kill various flying insects such as house flies and wasps.

    Fly sprays often contain the powerful insect toxin dichlorvos which is often targeted by environmental groups as a carcinogenic compound.

    Fly sprays kill insects by interrupting the nerve signals from the motor neurons in the insect. This in turn causes them to go into a permanent contraction which makes flying and respiration impossible, and the insects then die of asphyxiation.

    Fly spray contains chemicals (including many organophosphate compounds) that bind to and permanently block the action of an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase. Acetylcholine (ACh) is the nerve transmitter substance released by motor neurons (at a site called the neuromuscular junction) to stimulate muscle contraction. The muscles relax (stops contracting) when the ACh is removed from the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) by the action of acetylcholinesterase. By inhibiting the cholinesterase the fly can no longer break down ACh in the NMJ and so its muscles lock up in a state of tetany (continuous contraction) making flying and respiration impossible.

    Fly spray is dangerous to pets as well as fish and should be used with caution.

    There is an urban legend circulated on the Internet recommending that wasp spray be used in the place of pepper spray.

    I wouldn’t recommend it, anymore than I’d recommend “huffing” the sh!t. Yes, I’ve seen people who did it, trying to get high. No, they generally didn’t survive the experience.

    BTW, organophosphate compounds are the basis of some of the nastier “nerve gases”. Rather like the more common insecticides used for aerial spraying, etc.

    Here in farm country, it used to be pretty common in the planting season for the EMTs to get a call to a farm because some neophyte had stuck his hand down in a spray tank of 2-4-D or something to get a nozzle he’d dropped, etc.

    The next thing was, he’d be on a respirator and they’d be shooting him up with atropine to keep him breathing until they could get him to the ER.

    Between organophosphates and alkyl thiophosphites, insect killers are just a little too dangerous to be used indiscriminately.

    So please, go buy a key-fob can of pepper spray or something. They’re only about $5 here in OH, and most drugstores, etc., have them hanging on the rack right next to the checkout. Stick one in your pocket and keep it handy when you go to answer the door.

    No, I’m not worried about the perp. I’m worried about you guys. So please, restrict the bug spray to … bugs.

    True science there, eon…but the point was not so much as wasp spray as a replacement for pepper spray but rather what is at hand to stop a threat when non-lethal means are preferable to hot lead; wasp spray (not regular bug spray) emits in a straight powerful stream similar to pepper spray and absolutely will stop a potential attack long enough to escape; beats the fuck out of a knee to the boys or a stern “NO” any day…use whatever is at hand.

    More importantly, granny over there had kind of made light of deadly defense, and there just ain’t nothing funny about it; you do what you have to do when you think your life is at risk or you are being violently attacked, that’s what the great equalizer is for. But if you do, your life is forever changed, maybe even ended for all practical purposes, just ask George Z. about that. Beats the fuck out of the alternative of course, but killing another human is a big fucking deal and a last resort. And if you try what granny advised at the end, spray and disable and finish off the scum with a couple doses of hot lead, and that is manslaughter…and you almost certainly will go to prison and be surrounded by the scum’s brethren for many years to come.

    But. If you do have to shoot (and the chances are oh so slim), shoot to kill.

    • February 18, 2016 at 12:27 pm

      Shoot to stop the attack, not “to kill”.
      If the perp dies in the process of stopping him, oh well.

      • February 18, 2016 at 1:05 pm

        That’s a BS term and very dangerous advice that has caused many newbie shooters to believe they should try to “wing” or injure an attacker like trying a leg shot or some similar stupidity…

        It’s hard enough to make the decision to shoot when under attack and stress and control your adrenaline rush, motor skills, etc. without trying to aim for a non-vital appendage.

        No one who has not faced that elephant can anticipate what their response will be and hope to God they never do, but plan in advance to keep it simple…if you make the decision to shoot, Center mass, Multiple shots, Stop the threat. Maybe that last part is where your message confused, more importantly it may confuse others.

      • February 18, 2016 at 7:38 pm
        Bill M

        When you shoot, aim for center mass. Highest probability of striking the target. Hitting the target is more effective than missing. Aiming to wound is OK if you have time to aim and are aware of the backstop and can avoid possible collateral damage downrange. If your hit results in the perp taking the dirt nap, Oh well.

  • February 18, 2016 at 9:46 am

    As for yesterday, is that an X Frame or does Sam have small hands?

    For “less than lethal” options the Kimber pepper gun seems nearly ideal, though I find it hard to imagine the situation where it is more appropriate to use, unless you simply can’t fathom the possibility of causing the death of your attacker. If that’s the case it’s far better to be conspicuously alert at all times which is likely to remove you from the list of potential victims. Personally I find it hard to imagine being selected as a target of opportunity, but one must be prepared regardless.

  • February 18, 2016 at 11:43 am

    As for using Wasp Spray for anything other than wasps, it’s a violation of Federal Law. Read the label on the can. If the perp lives, it’s a good way to get yourself sued, or be in trouble with the Feds. Read the label…

    • February 18, 2016 at 1:35 pm

      “Hold up there, Mr. morlock, let me read the fine print on this here can to be sure I’m not violating your rights or gettin’ myself in hot water with fedgov, I might decide to just let you rape or kill me instead!”

    Hey, I used “morlocks” in place of muzzies for the first time other than here…gun range owner in Oklahoma posted No Muslims and got targeted by CAIR activists, lawsuit, etc. He hired the same mouthpiece that got the Florida case tossed a few months back and no doubt he’ll win. But another gunnie blogger said the guy is “not helping” the cause, to which I responded:

    “So, does DHS still require flight schools to report morlocks looking for lessons? Profiling; it’s a good thing.”

    I like it; whether or not it catches on in general lexicon, it’s meaningful to those in the know, and no doubt majorly insulting to CAIR and other morlock agitator organizations.
