Everybody Sing Along....

With Carrie, who seems to be having the same kind of day the blog princess is having....


Sorry for the lame blogging of late. Between home and things to do at work, the Blog Princess is drowning. If it weren't for the occasionally laughs in our Inbox... [Ed. note: Yikes... yes, Engrish is our native language, thank-you-berry-much]


Deb, from Marine Corps Moms, sends:

Are you a Democrat Family? Republican family? Marine Corps Family? Here's a little test that will help you to decide :

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock 40-caliber, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?

Democrat Response:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor? Or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? Should I just ignore him and hope for the best? What does my wife think? What would my French cousin think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? What do the European courts say about this situation? Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? What would the United Nations do in this case? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me? Should I call 9-1-1? Why is this street so deserted? We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior. This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for few a days and try to come to a consensus.


Republican Response:


Marine Response:

click..... (sounds of reloading). BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click

Daughter: "Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?"

Son: "Can I shoot the next one?"

Wife: "You aren't taking that one to the Taxidermist!"

Later this morning, we got another email from one of the Denizens of Castle Argghhh. This one contained clever Redneck riffs on famous movie lines, such as:

"Luke, I am your father... and your uncle... and your first and
second cousin, your nephew...",

"You want a tooth?! You can't HANDLE a tooth!!"

Hmmmm.... we thought. There has to be a movie game in here somewhere.
So we thought, what if you took original lines from movies and made versions as spoken by Dumbocrats and Rethuglicans?

Hey. I'm not having a good week. Don't mess with me.


Original quote: "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!"

Democrat version: "You want the truth? What is this so-called "truth" anyway but an inherently oppressive construct of the male-dominated heteronormative power structure? The very fact that you ask this question indicates that you are nothing more than a tool of the patriarchy."

Republican version: "You want the truth? Dear Lord, Martha . Get me a drink..."

Well, ladies, I hope your day gets better. You've made mine better, by posting the link to those movie quotes. Some of the movies I've never seen, but the quotes are still familiar to me!

Posted by: JannyMae at April 3, 2007 04:10 PM

This Democrat's response: "BANG!" (in other words, f**k 'em whether or not they can take a joke"). It took only one time on the wrong end of a robber's gun for me to decide that if it's a question as whether it's "him" or me that's a goin' to meet my maker, it sure as hel* isn't gonna be me.

An armed Dem? Darned if I'm gonna me you at the bridge at 3:30!

I was so shook up the meet came out as me... please perform word substitution as appropriate.

"An armed Dem? Darned if I'm gonna me you at the bridge at 3:30!"

I come in peace, but don't f*** with me, and we'll be just fine, mkay?

Posted by: Mark In Irvine at April 3, 2007 05:24 PM

I come in peace... How I go is up to you!


I've actually never understood how "L"iberals who see fascists, oppressors, and evil warmongers running the government want the government to be the only ones who had guns.

I've actually never understood how "l"iberals who believe that the weak (petite female) shouldn't be at the mercy of the strong (hulk rapist) would be against the greatest leveler of the playing field.

As the motto goes: armed gays don't get bashed.

You and Carrie had me worked up for a little while but "Nice grouping, Daddy!" and a couple of other things have made my day.

And yes, I'm still up.

"I come in peace, but don't f*** with me, and we'll be just fine, mkay?"

Rest easy my immutable new acquaintance in Irvine, I must admit that I would not know how to even begin to do such a thing with you. heheh

MM, I can't say that I've ever heard that motto, but I have led a sheltered life. Well in the last 20 years anyway. But your questions have always given me pause, or gas, well both.

Oh yes, Milady Cassandra. I must say that in spite of the fiscal frugality of the conservative sphere of influence, we are well versed in the functional elegance and efficiency of the double-tap. Along with the intuitive lather, rinse, repeat as necessary… That being so, I might offer that the Republican entry could be more accurately described as

*BANG* *BANG* Quick, call my attorney.

REPUBLICAN: You're not fooling anyone you know. Look, isn't there something
you can do?

CART-MASTER: Not at all. See you on Thursday.
REPUBLICAN: Right. All right.

BLAZING SADDLES is an equal-opportunity offender--there is a line in the movie for every social occasion:

"I would not know how to even begin to do such a thing with you"

It's just a figure of speech.
