    Congrats to the Cubs, and to Abu! What a massively-long streak has finally ended. I mean, Teddy Roosevelt was President, the last time they won the Series. The automobile was in its infancy. My grandfather was 9. Geronimo was still alive, living as a celebrity POW. Nobody knew the term, “World War.”

    The two best teams slugged it out. Great Series.

    • Abu Let's Play Two says:

      Thank you, Octo, my virtual friend. What a series! I have been defiling my body the last few days but a championship that I believed I’d never see is worth it. And my Cubs are young and built to compete annually. 🙂

      That said, I’d like to point out how well the Cleveland Indians played. All year I heard the Tribe would back up allowing Octo’s Tiggers to win the AL Central. It never happened. Cleveland has great talent and a proven manager (though both Franconia and Maddon had me wondering WTF, often). Expect to see Cleveland making another run soon.

      I was at my first game at Wrigley at age 7 and in my early teens walked 1 mile to Addison Ave. for the hour ride to the park, for 35 cents! I had to keep 35 cents in my tiny blue jean pocket so I could get home. Bleacher seats were .75 cents in 1977. So $5 bucks was heaven!

      From Linky: The cost of a bleacher ticket has gone on a meteoric climb — from 75 cents in 1977 to $67 for a marquee game in 2014 — bringing a different vibe to the so-called “cheap seats.”


      I turn 54 tomorrow. Best. Present. Ever. It would be (happily) short-lived if The Donald wins Tuesday.

      • Octopus says:

        Happy Birthday, youngster! 🙂

        And congrats again on the historic victory. Imagine the second-guessing of Madden that would have ensued, if Chapman’s tired arm had allowed the Cubs to lose…yikes! All’s well that ends well.

        I hope someday to have reason to defile my old body over some championship or another. Right now, the Wolverines look like the best bet, but there’s no way they can win out this year, or next year after they lose all their seniors. The Tigers are looking to cut salary, which can’t be good for next year’s prospects. The Lions? God help them. Pistons and Red Wings are both rebuilding, but not close to being serious contenders. Oh well. Just gonna have to live a long, long time.

  3. Octopus says:

    😆 This is trolling at its finest. Good work, sir!

  4. Octopus says:

    No evidence is ever presented for these sweeping libelous statements. Twitter is just fine with this kind of shit, yet Fatass whines incessantly about their policies. So much disconnect.

  5. Octopus says:

    Back in 2003, Chunky led the charge in denouncing the Dixie Chicks for their attack on Bush. Fatass has deleted or blocked most of his posts from this period, which now lead to a current page promoting some glurge he’s coughed up, but I managed to find this one:


    Krugman Trivializes Kristallnacht
    Charles Johnson
    3/25/03 9:25:49 am • Views: 1,630

    My jaw dropped last night when I read Paul Krugman’s column in the New York Times, comparing criticism of the Dixie Chicks to Kristallnacht: Channels of Influence. (Hat tip: atomic conspiracy.) But when I went back to write about it this morning, look what they’ve done:

    By and large, recent pro-war rallies haven’t drawn nearly as many people as antiwar rallies, but they have certainly been vehement. One of the most striking took place after Natalie Maines, lead singer for the Dixie Chicks, criticized President Bush: a crowd gathered in Louisiana to watch a 33,000-pound tractor smash a collection of Dixie Chicks CD’s, tapes and other paraphernalia. To those familiar with 20th-century European history it seemed eerily reminiscent of… . But as Sinclair Lewis said, it can’t happen here.


    • OLT's Knows Who Did It says:

      One of the serious symptoms of decline in this country is the amount of attention given to the uneducated and uninformed opinions of “artists”.

      I’m not saying they’re all ignorant and live in tight little bubbles of similar ignorance, but I would say most of them are. And the more successful they are monetarily, the more attention they’re paid by the fawning media and the brain-dead who walk among us.

      Oh shit, I’ve just described both Presidential candidates.

      We are well and truly fucked. See you in the gulag.

  6. Octopus says:

    The snobbery and condescension towards Americans just drips off this article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2016/11/01/ranch-dressing-is-whats-wrong-with-america/?utm_term=.37699b6712fe

    I’m a blue cheese dressing man myself, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with Ranch, or any other salad dressing people enjoy. Shut up, you blithering fascist. Go vote for the Haggard Queen. 😆

  7. pineapple says:

    I took three weeks off avoiding all politics…. felt great.

    I’ve jumped back in after seeing that Shillary is self destructing. I wonder if Shillary supporters realize that they are voting for Tim Kaine to be president. Can you imagine that smarmy faced whack-job as our president?

    I already mailed in my Trump vote.

    • rightymouse says:

      Good for you!
      I’ll be voting for him on Tuesday. From what I can tell so far, Ohio will definitely be for Trump! 🙂

  8. Juan Epstein says:

    The whole “KKK sign at the World Series” thing is purely Charles Johnsonesqe.

    • Octopus says:

      I saw that, Juan. Udderly highlarious. 😆

      The only shocking thing is that Fatass didn’t jump on board with it. He loves the KKK almost as much as he loves saying “Nazi.”

    If you go to the red meat blogs the Shrillbeast is so toast. But all I hear is possible this and maybe that. Wikileaks is mostly embarassing inside talk. Collusion between media, DOJ, DNC and the campaign. But no laws broken. CNN are hacks, we knew it. DOJ will do nothing, we knew it. Shrillbeasts fans don’t care that they all conspired to fuck over an old white man from the left or the right. There’s this talk now that all of Podesta’s food talk is like a second language concealing a pedo ring. Whatev. Produce something. It’s beginning to get annoying. She’ll be in her second term before they pin anything. And those poor straight FBI agents will be working in the janitor closet in the basement insisting that’s their stapler. Clinton cartel are simply better than the FBI esp with insiders hindering them at every step. I’m predicting checkmate Clintons. Next up…Doug Band makes Barack Obungle a very rich man.

    • B a dick 4 jeezus says:

      And if Shrillbeast can put a server in her downstairs toilet and do all her classified official biz on it and delete whatever shit she liked and exchanged top secret info outside .gov and THAT’s not a crime. Then Huma downloading her entire several years email cache to the Weinertop isn’t going to be either. It was an accident. They’ll send Weiner away for 5 years and then pay some thugs in his pod to shiv him around the corner of the cameras.

      • Octopus says:

        Love your cynicism, Dick. And I concur on most of what you say. The Bitch From Hell is probably going to skate on all of it, as she has always done.

        At the same time, I’m holding out a smidgen of hope that just enough of America is “woke” to the Clintons utter depravity, at long last, and will deny her the White House. If that happens, then there’s a slim chance the criminal investigations will bear real fruit. A snowball’s chance in the Fiery Inferno, perhaps, but still a chance. A kid can dream.

  15. Octopus says:


    There’s an argument to be made that this gal is just practicing her womanly trade in an honest fashion, unlike most hot young females who use their hotness to attract and secure financial sustainability. On the other hand, there’s an old-fashioned term for such a person which contains a lot of judgmental, patriarchal censure. What say you?

    This is my job.

    • Pakimon says:

      What say me?

      Hold on a sec… let put on my tinfoil hat with ‘Hillary for Prez” stickers plastered all over it.

      Here we go.

      She is just another misguided hamster programmed to endlessly run on the wheel of patriarchy for the amusement of Donald Trump and his ilk while trapped in the giant habitrail known as the heterocage!

      Ok… enough of that.

      Let me get this tinfoil hat off my head…. There. Much better.

      Well… that was fun. 😀

    • rightymouse says:

      She looks way older than 25.

      • B a dick 4 jeezus says:

        I know. Sign of the crappy economy. But as a man I assess her as fake boobs ( a minus), slim bod (a plus) desparate and conniving ( a minus). Not relationship material for sure and don’t give her your PINs and SSN and whatnot. A sex worker is a sex worker. They do it for the money.

    Now let’s get back to pointing out Shrilldabeast and her criminal cabal deserve jail cells.

  19. Be a dick for Jeezuz says:

    Shrillery trounces Trump.

  20. Be a dick for Jeezuz says:


    And here’s some garbledy gook to make you all think I’m smart. De-risk is a super smart business term that only super smart business guys use. It means I don’t want our checks to bounce.

    “There is no explicit reason for us to raise money,” Musk said in an CNBC Friday morning. “It may be prudent to raise some capital as a buffer, and to de-risk the business, but we have not decided when that might be.”

    Uh huh. Micro satellites any day now.

    You mean like an extension cord I could get from Walmart?

    • pineapple says:

      Micro satellites, more space junk to fall on our heads.

      • Octopus says:

        Musk is the greatest con-artist of our time, having spotted the Massive AGW Boondoggle as his Big Lie Golden Opportunity. I wonder if someday he’ll be chased through the streets by angry villagers with pitchforks and shovels. Seems likely.

  21. Be a dick for Jeezuz says:


    No comment from Stompy who stomped his chubby little feet anytime anyone questioned this obviously bogus story and called them misogynists. Then when the wheels came off he never gave a mea culpa for backing a liar and a crooked journalist, smearing innocent people and being completely wrong, as usual.


    Correction, he did make a comment in regards. But only to insult Ginger for helping get to the bottom of the lies. I’m sure Ginger really cares now that he gets a FAT PAYCHECK from DJT.

    Hey, ISpeakJive— Just saw your request upstairs:

    Bunk, do you know anybody who does shop drawings for submittals? I need to find somebody who can bid a job up front, not by the hour.

    It depends on what trade you need shops for. Steel detailers work directly with the fabricators. Cabinetry isn’t too tough for an outside draftsman. Shops for pre-engineered wood products, like glu-lams, strand beams and web joists are also done in-house by the manufacturing companies as far as I know. Not sure if that helps.

    If it’s a small custom project, lemme know.

  24. JimboXL says:

    Behold! The stupidly of the Clinton campaign:

    “Jay Z repeatedly drops n-word, f-bomb during concert for Hillary Clinton”


    Not only indictable, criminal, corrupt, lying, but incredibly stupid, why would anyone vote for her that wants to live.

    One more reason to hate left-biased ESPN: http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-we-dont-know-how-much-sexism-is-hurting-clintons-campaign/?addata=espn:frontpage

    Are ye freakin’ kiddin’ me? The ONLY reason she’s gotten this far is by riding the “We Need A Granny President”-wave. The most corrupt and unlikable person I’ve ever seen run for President, by far. Should be in jail. “Sexism!” 😆

    • Octopus says:

      Every once in awhile the mask slips, and the true nature of the “green” faction shows itself. This is one of those times.

      From the comments to that revelatory piece:

  29. Octopus says:

    The Deep South Buckeyes appear to be back in control of their faculties, leading pesky Nebraska 14-3 in the first quarter. I know the Buckeyes are a very young team still finding their way, and I really want them to face Michigan with only one loss, but I can’t help rooting for them to face a lot of adversity along the way. If they lose, they lose. Tuff poop. 😉

    Meanwhile, the Wolverines got it back together today for a rager-party over Maryland. If they’re not undefeated going into Columbus in a few weeks, it will be a major upset. I am starting to get very attached to this particular group of players — I think they are poised to do something special this year. On the other hand, they have had a couple of very tough games, and OSU will be a serious test. If they do manage to win the B1G and get to the national championship game, only to get creamed by Alabama like MSU did last year, it will really hurt their cachet with the top prospects coming out of high school. It’s a whole ‘nother level of pressure, when you want to play with the big dogs.

  30. Bunk X says:

    4 November 2016 – Fayetteville, NC: Twenty hold-ups in 2-1/2 minutes by same man. No arrests, suspect at large.

    • Octopus says:

      He’s such a loser! 😆

      The Unicorn Messiah (won’t I be be glad when I don’t have to type that name out anymore) is such a smug, preening, fatuous fool, he actually believes the idiotic garbage spouted out by his minions in the MSM, about what a great speaker he is, what an intellect, what a statesman. It is to chortle heartily.

      He’s got nuthin’. He’s always been an empty suit, from the start, and he hasn’t changed one whit.

  31. ISTE says:

    If Trump is elected then I will apply for citizenship in Feb 2017

    If not, then I will not.

    • Octopus says:

      I think you should apply anyway, ISTE. The political situation in this country is effed in the a, and will be for sometime, no matter what happens on Tuesday. At the same time, the rest of the world is worse. We need people like you, who understand the attractions of Tarja and braided beards. Stay the course!

      • ISTE says:

        The blonde one who has no name is riding my ass to apply too. Been here 18 years. Not going anywhere else.

        Yes, will do it.

        • Octopus says:

          Good man. Too bad you can’t vote on Tuesday. We need all of ’em.

          As for the Blonde Who Rides…doesn’t she care about the saddle-sores? And does she have to sharpen the spurs?

        • calo says:

          I already bought you a “Loud Proud American” baseball cap in anticipation of your citizenship.

          So, there’s no turning back now.

          • ISTE says:

            Calo, buddy, there was no turning back after 3rd October 2014. 960 miles in 17 hours. not doing that again!

    • Bunk X says:

      If Trump is not elected, you’ll have to apply for Mexican citizenship and you’re in like Flynn.

    • Octopus says:

      Assassination attempts are always a real possibility in this stage of campaigns, with emotions, rhetoric and flaming ads firing up the nutcase fringe on both sides. Asshats like Chunky are helping as much as they can, though his extremely-limited audience helps limit the potential damage. Thank God for small favors, and large pannuses.

      Keep your head down, Don. Shrillary, you keep braying. 😆

  32. Octopus says:

    Scary scene in Columbus, as Nebraska’s fine QB Tommy Armstrong is carted off in traction. Buckeyes fans joined in chanting “Tommy,” which was kind of nice, especially for a fan-base known as being one of the toughest in the country for visitors. Here’s hoping Armstrong is okay. Football is a very violent sport, and the danger is always there, which is part of the attraction for fans. Nobody wants anyone seriously hurt. But it happens.

  33. ISTE says:

    And that day/night was a night to remember… October 2/3 2014

    “where are you!:”
    Um in car driving south….
    “it is late, you need to stop and find a hotel”

    This went on until about 3am when blonde one finally shut up.

    Happy times..

    • Octopus says:

      Reminds me of the time an ex-girlfriend came back to town, and convinced me to take her Up North for a weekend of fun and Nature stuff. My car was iffy, but we made an effort, only to break down about fifty miles from our intended destination. She then convinced me to leave my wounded animal of a vehicle, and hitchhike with her to the destination. We got picked up by some strange rangers, including one guy who started telling us about the automatic weapon in his trunk he was planning on using to hunt deer. The forestry guys were on his tail, though, so we had to promise not to say he’d picked us up. I don’t recommend hitchhiking, kids. 😆

  34. Octopus says:

    I love these “primitive livin'” videos. I’m just a caveman. Your world frightens and confuses me. 😆

    • Bunk X says:

      My favorites are the “Noodlin'” vids: Cajun catfishing by hand.

      • Octopus says:

        That practice goes against every survival instinct encoded in my genes. My hands scream, in Helen Keller-esque fury, “NO WAY ARE YOU STICKING ME INTO DARK HOLES UNDERWATER!!1!” I mean, if you’re starving in the wilderness, desperate times call for desperate measures. I haven’t been that “hangry,” to be honest. I would rather toss in a stick of dynamite or some smaller facsimile, and pick up the floaters. Just as dead, and probably more edible than the giant bottom-feeders.

          • Octopus says:

            I think that ole boy was drinkin’ one of these homebrewed beers, like the good one I’m sucking down. Crazy ole Acadian. I would love me some squirrel stew, like the one we made on a camping trip in Northern Michigan in the Winter of ’77. It was a very cold snap we were in, and the squirrels came right to the bait, while my hunting pals knocked them down with their .22 rifles. I wasn’t a hunter then, and I’m not one now, but I ain’t no vegetarian freak neither. I would eat any animal if I was truly hongry, or hangry. Maybe a human one, too. Who am I to discriminate?

          • Bunk X says:

            Rabbit stew is good. Never had squirrel. Possums and coons take a lot of preparation from what I’ve read.

  35. Octopus says:

    Remember when Fatass posted that silly glurge where the senile actor DeNiro attacked Trump? Well, The Don had a response, not covered by the self-identified Liberal MSM. Which went a little something like this here:

    • B a dick 4 jeezus says:

      I’m glad they put something out there. De Niro is widely loved and admired. And I didn’t recall him having any strong opinions about politics before. So it’s a bit disappointing. But if he wants to go there and become some big time late life activist then he deserves his licks. He appears to be a naive, foul mouthed and ill informed idiot who’s only good at one thing. Acting like wise guy thugs in the movies. And dumb enough to continue talking tough in real life when he’s really just a short little pampered California celebutard. Sorry fucker. Should a kept your mouth shut.

  36. Octopus says:

    In January the wife and I will be spending a week at our favorite spot on the ocean, The Sandpearl in Clearwater. No kids. The poor bastards have to work and/or continue their schooling. Oh, the humanity. 😆

    While we love our children, we both feel we have earned a break from their ongoing dramas-of-young-life, and look forward to being “on our own” for the first time in forever. I am putting together a sun-worshiping mixtape for us, even though she’s the only one who can handle a lot of hours in that kind of sun. Here’s a representative sample of the kind of stuff that sounds good when you’re baked on the beach:

  37. Octopus says:

    We should all have our own rock bands to work things out. That’s my opinion, anyway.

    • Bunk X says:

      Yeah. If we had a mix master here, we could top the charts. I got dibs on the Hohner Chromatic track.

    • B a dick 4 jeezus says:

      That was so awesome! One of my favorite pop songs. The guitarist is so well versed in distortion techniques. And I recall in the original there was like a descending bass line in the theme that they didn’t bother with because what they’re doing is just as good! Great fresh instrumental remake of a classic. I also dug the improvisational outro. I think G Harrison would’ve loved this. This sounded like a million bucks on my IPad Pro.

      • Octopus says:

        If you liked that, you would probably like his cover of the whole Sgt. Peppers album. I love it, myself. Does a great job on every song, imho.

  38. Bunk X says:

    Never had a conveyor system give me a woody before.

  39. Bunk X says:

  40. Pakimon says:

    It a beautiful Sunday morning and Pakimog ready for NFL football (kinda sorta).

    After weeks of watching the Jaguars grow ever more inept and sucky with each passing game, Pakimog fit to be tied.

    Today, the Jaguars travel to Kansas City to get their asses kicked by play the Chieves.

    At least cheerleader get to go to beach it being Florida and whatnot.

    Meanwhile Jaguars fans will continue to be confused and mind-boggled by Jaguars play calling and execution.

  41. Pakimon says:

    Also, The Eagles travel to the land of the Giants to try and redeem themselves after handing the game to the Cowgirls last Sunday night.

    Eagles cheerleader also have day off since Eagles in New York so she can go to beach too and ponder future of season while sporting eco-friendly bikini manufactured from recycled Eagles jerseys, coconut husk hairs and palm frond fibers.

  42. Pakimon says:

    Also on tap:

    Octo’s and Macker’s Detroit Lions travel to Minnesota play Vikings!

    Lion’s cheerleaders also have day off but can’t go to beach because Fords too cheap to foot bill for calendar shoot and bikinis. Fords too cheap to buy them cheerleader outfits and they don’t look happy!

    If only Fords would fork out cash! Then Lions cheerleaders be bouncy and sassy like this Dolphins cheerleader instead of dismayed and dejected.

    • Octopus says:

      Detroit cheerleaders have to deal with a lot. They’re all on medication, for their manic depression, induced by a football version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

      As for Miss Bouncy, Mr. Hyde wants to play “Hyde The Salami” with her. It’s an old Polish parlor game, popular in Hamtramck.

      It’s going to be a long day for the Lions, I suspect. Minnesota has been struggling a bit in the past couple of weeks, but I look for Detroit to be just what the doctor ordered — watch them get healthy in a hurry!

      • Abu says:

        The Lions are up 10 – 3 starting the second half. What a gripping game!!1!1 This is a perfect fix while my Bears have the bye. As is my wont, I’m rooting against the Vikings. Hope that doesn’t jinx your Lions, Octo.

        • Abu says:

          OMG, Overtime! Hope Octo isn’t napping.

          • Abu says:

            Lions win a doozy.

          • Octopus says:

            I watched the whole game, somehow staying awake through the brutally boring parts. Stafford used his patented Come-From-Behind Strategy, which goes like this:

            Hang Around
            Hang Around
            Hang Around
            Hang Around
            …come up with some amazing, miraculous drive at the end to win.

            It’s not easy being a Lions fan. Takes a lot of patience, and you always get screwed eventually. Not in a good way.

            That said, the Lions are in the race for the NFC North, in the second half of the season. This is more than we ever expected this year.

            Stafford For President!! 😆 (I know he’s too young now, but we can wait)

  43. rightymouse says:

    Uh..wrong again, Fatso.

    He’s a paid Clinton plant. Idiot.

    Fatso even struggles with basic information.

    But hey everyone… donate to this ignorant putz.

  45. Octopus says:

    Took them six months to go through 50,000 emails, but only a week to go through 650,000. That seems perfectly legit. 😆

    And Chunky is still butthurt about it!
