Our Gus Is An Awesome Gus

From his first post at Little Green Footballs to today, El Gusano has been an enigma,. One minute he appears to be un cognoscente, the next minute he’s bashing his head on worn Naugahyde and comes back with a double-barrel load of stupid.

That’s El Gusano’s first comment on Little Green Footballs. For several years after, he proceeded to spam the LGF comments at a rate previously unheard of [60 posts per day average].

But that was then, and this is then, too.

No he didn’t, Gus, and there was no agreement, Gus, but it’s a step in the right direction, Gus. Nothing pleases our Gus because our Gus is a miserable sack of Gus.

Our Gus is an Awesome Gus.

    If you just mentally substitute “Gus” for “God,” this song works perfectly to capture the way I feel about Garage Boy.

    Chunky dutifully retweeting this dork’s hysterical take on Trump’s massive historical breakthrough with the Norks. See how quickly the Left adopted the “Trump is in love with evul dicktaters”-meme, provided by Media Matters the night of the signing?

    Seems the cartoonist has been fired for refusing to tone down his vicious and deranged takes on our President. Aw, poor baby! We only like it when conservatives lose their jobs for clashing with their bosses’ political positions! 😆

      Sorry about the double-take — there are some fine examples of this cretin’s work at the HuffPoop link. Here’s one of his gems from before the hammer-blow of Trump’s win in November 2016 — it’s fun to watch the libturds joke around before Trumpageddon:

    Chunky refers to this obscure podcast, which once had him on as a guest before the death of its “funny” half, and never since, as LGF’s “podcasting affiliate.” How’s that, Fatass? You don’t do podcasts, and they don’t do you. Cesca won’t return your calls. It’s as hopeless as your GoFundMe. 😦

    Is Michael Cohen’s legal staffing shake-up the calm before the storm? Because hardly anyone is staying calm about it.

    And… he’s ranting like a loon again.

    Donald J. Trump

    Now that I am back from Singapore, where we had a great result with respect to North Korea, the thought process must sadly go back to the Witch Hunt, always remembering that there was No Collusion and No Obstruction of the fabricated No Crime.

    So, the Democrats make up a phony crime, Collusion with the Russians, pay a fortune to make the crime sound real, illegally leak (Comey) classified information so that a Special Councel will be appointed, and then Collude to make this pile of garbage take on life in Fake News!

    “I’m cool, son. No, really — lots of people think so.”

    This story cracked me up. I mean, Farrell invented Lollapalooza, and now his son is embarrassed to be seen with him there. You can’t be cool with your adolescent kids, Dads, no matter how hard you try. May as well embrace the fun of embarrassing them, as I did at that stage. Sing in public, wear the wrong clothes, put on your wife’s sunglasses and wave to their friends when you drop them off at the friend’s house — use your imagination. 😆

    Yeah… so, hard to make this shit up. This is a real book (group of books actually) sold by Amazon. According to them it’s just weird and funny.

    Secret Pizza Party Hardcover – September 3, 2013

    “Rubin and Salmieri are two of the weirdest, funniest guys working in kids’ lit today. The team lets its geek flag fly in an obsessive how-to guide for would-be dragon taco party hosts. Why a taco party? As Rubin explains, ‘The only things dragons love more than parties or tacos, is taco parties.’ If further proof is required, Salmieri—whose poker-faced watercolor, gouache, and color pencil drawings set a benchmark for oddball observational humor—shows one odd, scaly creature with a carryout bag from ‘Taco Cave’ and another beaming with anticipation as it eagerly circles the date for a taco party on its taco-themed calendar. But beware: even if all the tips and rules are followed to the letter (on quantity:’The best way to judge is to get a boat and fill the boat with tacos’), all will be for naught if spicy salsa makes its way into the taco filling. In fact, the dragons will bring a whole new meaning to ‘housewarming.’ Off-kilter fun for those who like their picture books (and salsa) zesty and fresh.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review.

    “Dragons Love Tacos is a heaping helping of silly. Little kids will relate to the anti-spicy bias and chuckle over Salmieri’s watercolor and gouache cartoon illustrations showing literally boatloads of tacos and all sizes of dragons enjoying their favorite food at pool parties, costume parties and, well, taco parties.” –San Francisco Chronicle

    Uh huh. Maybe I’m just a dirty minded old fool who doesn’t understand kids. But is anyone else seeing a BLATANT double entendre with the “Taco Cave” and how the dragon has taco party dates circled on his calendar. And judging tacos on taco filled boats (sounds like a Jeff Epstein/Bubba Clinton outing). And the tacos are only bad when spicy salsa is in them? Only a pervert like me I guess is thinking penises, vaginas and menstruation and I’m not sure what else.

    Most of the comments are bewildered housewife/mom types who’s kids hated the books and sense there’s something wrong with the author.

    And then one of the reviewers found this interview of the author.

    1.0 out of 5 stars
    A few facts
    January 4, 2017
    Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    The author Adam Rubin was asked by Saya Weissman in an interview on Digiday, “As a single, childless male, why [write] children’s books?” He answered, “There is … a subversive element that appeals to me. In fact, before I started writing [the first children’s book] ‘Those Darn Squirrels,’ I was working on an X-rated comedy show at the Annoyance Theater called ‘Dr. Amazing: Your Country Needs You.’ It was named the ‘Best thing to do in Chicago while high’ by Time Out Magazine. So, despite my mantle as a children’s author, my sensibilities are not exactly G-rated.”

    Elizabeth goes on……
    “The book is basically about two groups of people. The first group has secret parties doing secret things that the second group objects to. Those in the second group are spoilsports who try to stop the parties.

    There is an illustration with a slice of pizza on the raccoon’s crotch (see attached photo), which is currently a popular concept on the Internet.”

    I could see Chunky showing up to a kid’s birthday party with one of these books.

    Willie would know a thing or two about separating families. He’s had 7 children with 4 wives. Some of them overlapped a bit such as when his second wife divorced him when she found the hospital bill for a baby daughter he’d had with wife to be #3.

    Wife #2: Is this a bill for a baby you had with that bitch whore you’ve been running around with?

        He’s a good country singer if you don’t mind a high whiny kind of voice and had some crossover pop hits many years ago. He was orignally just a skinny kid with a guitar. He wasn’t anything special until he started dressing up like a Native American/Cowboy/Hippy with braided pony tails, headbands and other leatherish kinds of adornments and grew a kind of scraggly biker beard. Ya know, selling the sizzle and the PR and then put on a good show for the peeps.

  14. Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:


    Obungle appointed judge and clearly another anti-Trump crook in on the harrassment of Manafort. Naturally none of this has to do with Trump or Russian collusion.

    President Donald Trump responded on Friday to an anonymous text from an FBI agent who described Trump’s supporters as “all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS [pieces of shit].”
    “I have the greatest supporters in the world. By the way, they are the smartest. They’re the hardest working. They pay taxes. They’re incredible. They’re loyal,” Trump said.

    The president responded in an interview on Fox & Friends to the controversial text that was included in the Justice Department Inspector General report released on Thursday.

    Trump said he had the “bikers” and “construction workers” as supporters, including rank-and-file FBI agents.

    “The real FBI,” he said, “not the scum on top, not Comey and the group of people that are total thieves.”

    • rightymouse says:

      Those arrogant texts from FBI Hillary supporters will only serve to make Trump supporters more stubborn in their support.
      Also, keep an eye on the wonderful Diamond & Silk as they go around on their current tour to the cities to connect with black voters. Am praying that the midterms clobber the Donkeys in more ways than they could ever imagine.

    Friday night in Houston and I started to update my profile on LinkedIn. For those not in the know it is basically a site where you list your work experience and you get job offers!

    You list the places where you have worked and your academic achievements and most importantly where you currently work.

    I have a problem….

    If I list my current job responsibilities then it will expose the current predicament that the company I work for is in.

    My job is…

    Telephone switchboard operator
    Mail room clerk
    Goods receiving operative
    Production supervisor
    Assembler of through hole component printed circuit boards
    Hand assembly of surface mount boards ( they are usually done by a machine, but I have skills )
    Sales support
    Testing of circuit boards
    Repair of circuit boards that fail when tested
    Quality control
    Quality control supervisor
    Research and Development
    General office manager
    Manager of janitorial services
    Janitor ( cleaned the rest room this afternoon )
    Shipping manager

          I have a knack for finding minor problems, inflating them to dangerous proportions, and then dispatching them with a pin prick.

          It takes talent to allow the mistakes of belligerent jerks to happen and then solve them in the blink of an eye. The opportunities are infrequent, but they’re kinda fun when they happen. Sometimes it even pays off. Yeah, I know it’s borderline unethical, but it’s fun when it happens.

      Way back when in the mid 80’s-early 90’s when I worked for Wang labs & Data General, we thought Macs were tinker toys. Of course, Apple is still around and those other companies aren’t.

      She’s off the charts, but I do understand some of her comments. When I was at the hospital in labor with my son, the nurses kept wanting to give me an epidural. Finally, I asked my doc to throw them out of the room (I was going to birth naturally) & she called in the resident midwife who stayed with me until I was ready & then my doc came in. As for vaccinations, my son was fine until an MMR he had before 2 years old. The doc seemed rather clueless about the dosage but injected him anyway. I’ve kept his hair and baby teeth just in case. Otherwise, I support vaccinations. We were given them when we were young – cholera, typhoid, polio, etc.

    From The Other McCain:
    The Democrat Immigration Agenda
    Posted on | June 17, 2018 | 10 Comments

    The White House sent me this press release:


    “We must restore integrity and the rule of law at our borders.” – President Donald J. Trump

    CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS’ FAMILY SEPARATION POLICY: Too many American families have been permanently separated from loved ones lost to illegal alien crime.

    · Open border laws and policies are responsible for the permanent separation of too many American families whose loved ones have been lost to illegal alien crime.

    · President Trump has met with family members whose loved ones have fallen victim to illegal alien crime.

    o Juan Pina was permanently separated from his daughter after she was strangled, raped, and murdered by an illegal alien.

    o Laura Wilkerson was permanently separated from her son, who was brutally murdered by an illegal alien classmate.

    o Jamiel Shaw, Sr. was permanently separated from his son, who was tragically murdered by an illegal alien gang member.

    · Congressional Democrats have repeatedly voted against common sense immigration legislation that would help make our communities safer.

    o In 2017, 174 House Democrats voted against legislation that would have helped ensure aliens associated with a gang are not admitted into the United States and would have empowered officials to more effectively remove those already here.

    o In 2017, 166 House Democrats voted against Kate’s Law, named after Kate Steinle who was killed by a previously deported illegal alien with a lengthy criminal history.

    o In February 2018, Senate Democrats blocked legislation that would have cracked down on dangerous sanctuary cities.

    OPEN BORDER POLICIES: American communities have suffered from illegal alien crime and illegal drugs flooding our country due to open border policies and immigration enforcement loopholes.

    · Drugs have flooded across our porous borders, poisoning our communities, and costing American lives.

    o The Southwest border is a major source of illegal drugs entering the United States.

    o Most heroin entering the United States is produced in Mexico, and production levels there continue to rise.

    · A total of 57,820 known or suspected aliens were in Department of Justice custody at the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2018, 60 percent of whom were aliens with orders of removal.

    · A 2011 report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found nearly 3 million criminal arrest offenses tied to incarcerated criminal aliens, including 25,000 homicide offenses.

    · Transnational gangs, such as MS-13, take advantage of our open borders and the loopholes in our immigration system.

    o MS-13 and other gangs have bolstered their ranks by exploiting the influx of Unaccompanied Alien Children entering the United States.

    Democrats and their media allies are portraying President Trump as responsible for the suffering of innocent people, This is dishonest propaganda, intended to shift the blame away from Democrats, who did nothing to solve the immigration problem during the eight years of Obama’s presidency and seek to scapegoat Trump for their failure.
