Random Thoughts: Pat Sajak, Collapse of Society, and HBO

Posted on May 23, 2014 9:00 am

I knew Pat Sajak was evil and wanted to destroy the world. Notice how he raises the price on vowels just in time for the annual spelling bee.

I wonder if the Captain Planet villain, evil, polluting game show host Sat Pajak, was modeled after him.

I’m not someone who gives up easily; otherwise, I wouldn’t be at level 488 on Candy Crush.

Racism isn’t over, but it’s declined past the point you can expect white people to do much about it. No march on DC over microagressions.

Talk of “white privilege” will only motivate white people to occasionally read articles on white privilege.

I would have said no to drugs if I was ever cool enough for anyone to offer them to me.

To the right, the Tea Party is about government overspending. To the left, the Tea Party represents every dark corner of their own id.

How are people going to know you’re witty if you don’t inform them in your Twitter bio?

I don’t think there’s good historical evidence there ever really was a Rome.

I still think this country has a bright future ahead of it, but just in case I’m making preparations to be a local warlord.

You build a bomb shelter, I’ll build a thunderdome. We’ll see who does better when society collapses.

Soccer just seems like one of those things you hear people were entertained by hundreds of years ago but are just baffling now.

Or maybe soccer is like how Pong was fascinating when it came out, but holds no interest to anyone who has seen any other video game.

I’m not trying to be insulting; I’m just saying soccer is a dumb sport babies might play.

With the HBO shows on Amazon Prime, really liking the Flight of the Conchords show.

Anyone heard of The Wire? Is that any good?

If HBO did that Babar cartoon now, would they force it to be full of swearing and elephant nudity?

    Level 245 of CC almost broke me. But I saw it through. True grit, right here.

    The HBO Babar would use pickup lines like, “Hey, baby, you know what they say about guys with long trunks.”

    Your tribe has to have a name. I propose a naming contest.

  5. Jimmy says:

    “The Flaeming Spuds”

  6. Oppo says:

    “Mad Macs” (vs. the PC crowd)

    I don’t think there’s good historical evidence there ever really was a Rome.

    Google confirms Rome is in upstate New York, next to an abandoned Air Force base.
    I’ve been there and the people at the pizzeria looked at me funny when I ordered in Latin.

    I’m glad our baby wasn’t nearly so athletic.

  8. Harvey says:

    @7 Steve H – I see you’ve been suckered by that New York myth.

    Everyone knows the REAL Rome is in Wisconsin

    Both of them:

    I’m still trying to imagine you as a warlord for Idaho potato farmers.

  10. Steve H says:

    @8 Harvey – How many people can say they’ve changed a flat tire in a myth?
    (PS – Is Latin the official state language?)

    @4 Jimmy

    “Moon Nukers”

  12. AT says:

    But… but… I kick the ball to my mate. And then he kicks it to another mate. And then he kicks it back to me. And then I kick it and take off my shirt.

  13. Jimmy says:

    @11 DamnCat: An excellent – but obvious – choice. I was thinking about less obvious ones…

  14. DamnCat says:

    @13 Jimmy: “Nuke Mooners” ?

  15. Jimmy says:

    @14 DamnCat: As in Frank “mooning the nukes” – or “nuking the mooners” ? (That first one could get you in trouble!)

    How about “Nuke Dukem” – since we obviously can’t use “Duke Nukem.”

  16. Fly says:

    Nude Mookers!

  17. Jimmy says:

    As follow-up to “Nuke Dukem,” it turns out it’s a bad choice. Here’s why:

    Definition from The Urban Dictionary:

    “Nuke Dukem

    When a person takes a massive dump in another persons microwave and cooks it on the highest setting until it explodes into a sh!tty mess or catches on fire. The Nuke Duker normally flees the scene so that when the owner of the microwave finds the evidence, they are none the wiser. I was at my best friends house and he drank all my beer, so while he was at work, I ate everything in his fridge and then left him a Nuke Dukem.

    I think we have to keep searching for a name because Frank would never do that.

  18. Fly says:

    Wow, Jimmy. And a touch of wtf. And also, that definition makes perfect sense if you etymologically deconstruct that term.

    So, it turns out that a “mook” is “A disagreeable or incompetent person.” What are the chances that Frank is a Mook Nuker and he’s just been hitting “n” on his keyboard instead of “k” by accident?

  19. Jimmy says:

    I don’t know, Fly, let’s ask him!

    Interesting about the word “mook.” I knew a guy with the last name of “Mooker” years ago. However, he was a very gifted mechanic and a great shipmate.
