  1. God says:

    When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.

    1 Corinthians 13:11

    • Briareus says:

      In later years, I and others realized that being a child was so much fun, and The BRC was born.

  2. Octopus says:

    Somebody’s pop-u-larrrr!

    Taurean Blacque is Scorpio!
    (he’s also Herbert Middleton, Jr.)

    • swamprat says:

      My abuse of twitters’ report-and-block feature caused twitter to have revamp their entire system (designed to block spam), due to my selfish and deliberate misuse.
      So when I retweet a twittersecurity complaint, I know what I’m talkin’ about!

    • HaikuMan says:

      Won’t work on Johnson
      He’s beyond embarrassment
      And beyond obese

  3. Octopus says:

    Way to enact that labor, boy!

  4. Juan Epstein says:

    He’s not an old white guy.

    He’s hip.

  5. Juan Epstein says:

    Has he sent Bob his condolences via Twitter?

  6. osprey1 says:

    Nick Fury was a good comic, but I prefer “Charles Johnson, Race Detective”.

  7. Achilles says:

    Who is Scorpio? Here’s a more relevant question: who gives three shits? Last I checked Scorpio was owned by Dirty Harry. I wish someone would pull a Dirty Harry on our favorite warbling douchenozzle, Charbles.

    • d says:

      And of course it begs the question: Who is Chunky Boo Boo Johnson? Did he lie for 8 yrs and then come out as a moonbat. Or has he been a lying fake moonbat for the past 5?

  8. d says:

    He’s showing what a white overprivileged bigot he is. First off, there are no black superheroes on that cover. Second, there’s only one woman superhero, and she’s forced to wear objectifying sexy panties and high-heeled boots. Thirdly, NO GAY MARRIED SUPERHERO COUPLES are on that cover. I can’t believe he hasn’t burned that collection which serves no purpose except to symbolize the overindulged cracka bourgeois life he’s lived. Hey Chunk, why don’t you walk your big mouthed talk and sell that collection and give the money to the local homeless shelter or toward a black education fund? Oh right, because your stuff’s yours.

    Poor Chunky. Look who just showed up and pooped in your yard

    Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak Tapped as Breitbart CA Editor and Flash Report Founder and Publisher Jon Fleischman Named Politics Editor

    LOS ANGELES, CA – Following the February launch of Breitbart London and Breitbart Texas, the Breitbart News Network announced today the latest in its ongoing multi-year national and international expansion with the launch of Breitbart California. Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak will become Editor of Breitbart California. Jon Fleischman, the founder and publisher of the 2013 National Blogger Association State Level Blogger of the Year, the Flash Report, will serve as Breitbart California’s Politics Editor.


    • d says:

      He’s actually done a pathetic post on it already. Some hyperbolic nonsense about the photoshopped edgy promo art just shows how the right wing are sociopathic er somethin’. Right Chunky, ‘cuz you’re not jealous or anything that Breitbart just keeps expanding and has a viable business model and has actual writers and editors and pays them, right? You still have Gus and your comic books.


      • swamprat says:

        LGF business model:

        abandon former successful methods
        stab former associates and friends
        stalk them
        smug condescension

      • Arachne says:

        So where are your news bureaus McGreaseball? Sure, I’ll concede it aint’ been the same since we lost Andy, but hell, your site hasn’t been the same since you came out of the conservative closet where we’d duped your ass all these years and kicked 15,000 literate people off your site and replaced them with the Kale King, a Lewd Pig, Porno Star and Spouse and Clan of the Garage Bear.

      • d says:

        Ha! Pretty nice to be DEAD and still beating the shit out of Fuckface McJazzy.

      • Because dudebro says:

        “So where are your news bureaus McGreaseball?” Why he’s got Gus, giving the latest updates on Colorado dumpster diving!

  11. swamprat says:

    Watching with amusement as the left discovers Russia is NotNice. Golly, you’d think they would have caught on when they had to run the country as a prison to keep the workers in.


    • Arachne says:


      Who said it? Normally, I’d say McCain for the win except he doesn’t have to run again for another two years.

      • swamprat says:

        Me. I said it. Border control could cage us in. Open borders are a pain, but closing them might be worse.

        I am going to think about this a while.

      • poteen2 says:

        It’s not that hard to figure. Borders aren’t that important if you stop paying people to cross them.

    Right wing humor = sociopathy
    Charles Johnson

    I hardly can tell the difference; One appeals to the basest sort person using the cheapest and most tawdry methods to distract and entice, while the other is a pop music star.

    • Arachne says:

      And a dead man still has 10X the followers on Twitter than Charles Johnson has,

      • swamprat says:

        Probably the only guy in the twitterverse who stalks a dead guy.

        And gets his butt kicked.

    • swamprat says:

      • swamprat says:

        “You have to pass it to see what’s in it.”

        Like my sister-in-laws’ casserole.

        Hmmm. She went to a lot of effort. Two different kinds of corn!

    • Daedalus says:

      Russia is not a Progressive country. They are Rightwing Falangists. Russia has a 13% flat tax and private social security system Don’t believe all the Russia hating crap the meia is pushing. They are not angels, but are not the devils the GOP claim they are.

      He better have really good security…
      You know-in case they try to serve him papers to sue him. Or something.

      After the Tawana Brawley bullshit he pulled, I hope karma bites that disingenuous asshole with a bullet.

      or two..or three…or more.

      • Pakimon says:

        Yeesh (to use a typical “Chunkism”)

        I meant the above comment in a rhetorical sense.

        Should’ve applied The Ironfist rule before posting that.

        I blame the demon rum.

      Hey Al. Snitches get stitches. That is, if they survive the initial attack. Anyway that’s the creed in the hood, right?

      • Arachne says:

        I’d avoid Sparks Steak House if I were you, Al…..for the Gambino family, there are precedents.

  17. swamprat says:

    The reason I am posting this is because the downdinged comment was shown, yet somehow the comment itself didn’t appear.
    Odd, that.

    Killgore Trout4/07/2014 4:46:37 pm PDT


    the fact that the company helped force out one tech CEO for something its own CEO also did, and its action last week starts to look more like a PR stunt than an impassioned act of protest.

    probably just an oversight

    Charles did a good job of cleansing his site of the Geller “rolleyes” image. There are still some residual google images associating this image to lgf, however.

    • Pakimon says:

      That has Gus_802’s modus operandi written all over it. 😆

        Yes, it’s definitely someone of his ilk. I’ll post an update when they catch the guy, so we can compare their resumes.

    UPDATE: By the way, if you’re considering emailing Aziz Poonawalla, please don’t. Post your comments here instead. He’s already complained that he’s receiving “threats,” so please refrain from feeding what Joe Katzman calls the Eternal Idiotarian Martyr Complex.

    That is rich. 😆

        I thought my MIL was the best ever, and she could cook up a storm with the Greek food. Pastries and breads, too. Really miss her!

      • Arachne says:

    Hey, if it tastes good and doesn’t make you sick, don’t ask too many questions. I’ve had too many Chinatown and Mexicantown dinners, to start asking about suppliers.

  26. Octopus says:

    I looked up “Poonawalla” to see what the name means, and it was something about being an Indian moonbat and underachiever. I checked my own name out, sensing a connection with an intelligent oracle posing as a silly internet tool, and damn if my intuitions weren’t confirmed in full. The Oracle hath spoken the Truth. 🙂


    What Does Name “Griffin” Mean?

    You are introspective, prophetic, philosophical, and soul searching, but also can be analytical, critical and opinionated. You think deeply and clearly, have an air of mystery, can be solitary and secretive. You are intuitive and might be interested in the arts, drama or science.
    You find the best contentment in life when you own your own home and provide well for your family and loved ones. You have a great sense of responsibility and duty. You are comforting, appreciative and affectionate. Your obligation in life is to hold justice and truth, and if you follow the Law, you can find the great happiness and satisfaction.

    She forgot to mention the devastating good looks, probably because that’s a shallow attribute which appeals to baser instincts. She doesn’t realize that I am a Science Denier/Hater, but that could have gone another way in my life, if I’d stayed on the Moonbat Path.

    • Abu says:

      What about “modesty” and “humility”? 🙂 🙂
      It also didn’t touch on your loving for limber wimminks!

      • Octopus says:

        Hmm…modesty and humility…well, nobody’s perfect! 😉

        I thought all men were semi-bewitched by limber wimminks, but later in life I learned some men preferred…men. NTTAWWT, in theory, but ew.

        Go Wings! Sneaking into the playoffs, to do some damage hopefully. Do NOT count this team out. They’ve been through a crapstorm of adversity this season, after their great late run last year. Takes a little fire to make steel, my friend. If they can stay relatively healthy, watch out.

  28. Juan Epstein says:

    I don’t get it.

    All this time “Dudebros” referred to frat boy types?

    • Octopus says:

      That’s not the way Fatass used it, Juan. He thought it was about Librotarian Anarchists, or some such mythical bogeyman.

      • Because sterno and Mountain Dew says:

        Now it’s Brogrammers. Like the kind who actually know how to write code that doesn’t crash phones.

        Well, his Foul Master can give him some tips on how to do that, with the greatest amount of acrimony and hypocrisy.

      What’s all that about. BTW, she’s sending out “cease and desist” tweets. And she’s a REAL lawyer, so if I were fatass, I’d be reaaal careful.

  30. Because ONOSES!! Teh hamsterz!! says:

  31. Arachne says:

    Maureen Dowd, aka Bitter Liberal C**t, fantasizes about the slaughtering of Republicans:


    and not a peep.

    Rush Limbaugh calls a woman who wants us to finance $3,000 of birth control a year a “slut” and the nation is OUTRAGED.

    • Octopus says:

      Dowd is such a worthless dumbass, I had to stop reading her during the latter Bush years. I can’t believe that woman has a newspaper job. You’d think the past 6 years of Obama-led devastation would humble a few moonbats in the media, but they seem energized by the failure, more willing to lash out stupidly than ever before. Yes, it’s bitter desperation, but it’s also the entitled, superior feeling the journolisters all have, over the rest of us. Blecchhh!

      • Arachne says:

        Someone on Twitter suggested she doesn’t get laid enough. I said they were wrong – she doesn’t get laid at ALL. Men from her like deer from a wildfire.

      • Because says:

        Indeed. Why put of with that, when for only $19.95, you can do it sideways like Loody.

      • rightymouse says:

        Can’t stand the woman either. Her writing consists of tiresome cliches & hackneyed trash.

    • OLT's New Civility. Old Bloodlust says:

      My AR trumps a sword, even if she had the strength to swing one. I encourage Maureen to come at me, right after that insipid comedienne that wanted to castrate me is dragged offstage in a trail of blood.

  32. OLT's But Neocons, Mommy! says:

    Arachne :
    What’s all that about. BTW, she’s sending out “cease and desist” tweets. And she’s a REAL lawyer, so if I were fatass, I’d be reaaal careful.

    She’s also delusional:

    • OLT's Hmmm, Racist Much, Counselor? says:

      BTW, is “Neocon” still Stalker Charles-speak for “Jew”???

      • Because says:

        When he’s talking about the females. When he’s talking about the guy Jews he’s got a bone for, it’s “dudebro”.

    • Abu Sending My Daughter to Get Some Now says:

      Super Dawgs is way down the list in Chicagoland, IMHO. Gene & Jude’s in River Grove (#18 on this list) is the goods. Fresh cut, greasy fries piled on the dog. Eat half the fries and leave the balance on when eating the dog. Mustard and onion! Don’t EVEN think about asking for catsup.

      • iSpeakJive says:

        I like ketchup on hot dogs. I gotta be me.

      • Octopus says:

        iSpeakJive :
        I like ketchup on hot dogs. I gotta be me.

        Only if it’s mixed with mustard, relish, and onion for me. No ketchup by itself for me.

        Mouth watering for a Detroit Greek-style coney dog now, with chili, onions and fries. I know I’m going there tomorrow. Thanks, guys! 🙂

      Oops, I already did a hockey post above. Yes, I agree they will be a problem for whoever they play in the early rounds, even if it’s Boston. It’s probably going to be Pittsburgh, and then Boston, if we move on. I would LOVE to see the Blackhawks in the Finals, or anyone for that matter…if we get past the first round with this batch of rookies and hobbled vets, it’s a major win!
