Your Entirely Predictable Friday Objectification Moment
Fausta has the quote of the day for today:
You can tell from the headline the guy’s a democrat. If it were a Republican he’d be “shirtless hairy old coot with no respect for the office he represents.”
One of the funnier moments in blogging of late. And no, the Editorial Staff are not posting it here. We have standards, you know.

Yeekgth! I like older men but didn't this, um, guy learn that nothing truly worth the effort comes from pulling an all-nighter?
Geeeez. Ick. Glad I don't live in that state.

He's probably union, and therefore can't be fired.

Another disturbing case of the male body being objectified for salacious purposes by a female blogger. As a fellow dude I feel horribly demeaned and insulted. Have you no respect? Some of us do have brains and feelings you know!
(okay, I admit it, I'm mainly jealous of his amazingly ripped and glistening back hairs. If they wanted to keep this guy in his chair 24/7, all they had do is invest in a little velcrow ...)

I'm surprised this wasn't playing in the background.
I'm equally surprised that I beat b-All-Your U-Toob-Are-Belong-To-Us-thun to it...

I would not volunteer for waxing him.

Remind me never to click through on the links again and just take your word for it.
Who has the brain bleach??? Damn, I need a drink.

Hmmm so I might be over doing it a bit huh? Thanks for the hint Bill.
Posted by: bthun at June 20, 2009 05:12 PM
Nup, keep 'em coming -- I just figgered you'd have been all over that one before I got to it, thassall...
Posted by: BillT at June 20, 2009 05:22 PM
I just wasn't very motivated to comment on this one...
I don't shave my back for hairy men, just Walkin' Boss.
And I certainly don't want to needlessly aggravate folks I like.
Now back to the stable for me.
Posted by: bthun at June 20, 2009 06:51 PM
Sly...I didn't click on the gratuitous link that BillT provided (long 'sperience, Loosy), but I did on the one Cass gave.
I don't object to hairy men per se, just the ones that get all comfable on the taxpayer's dime and then share with the rest of us.
I have to go back to organizing a financial plan for a company. My urge is to tell them to wait for a government bailout. No, this isn't 'real,' it is on paper.

Ya know, that's really weird.
My "former" next door neighbor (in my old neighborhood) works for the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO), and knows Lee Fisher pretty well. He (Fisher) is about as honest as the day is long, but this is just plain weird. What was he thinking? Just what I want to see, a 58 year old hairy Jewish man, with his shirt off. Oy vey!
He will probably be running against Rob Portman or Ken Blackwell for George Voinovich's seat (poor cryin' George is retiring). I have never seen either of them with their shirts off, though.
Think that will work for or against them?? Is this a new Democrat thing, now that the country is gaga over Obama's pecs?
Good neighbor John is running for Governor (yeah!). Kasich lives about a par 3 from my front porch, next street over. I know that because my neighbors across the street used their own front yard for a driving range before the rest of the neighborhood was built. Talk about useless arcania, huh? And I've never seen him with his shirt off, either
Oh yeah, I'M BACK!
And my shirt is on, at the moment.

Have I ever posted directions to a video of ribbon snakes doing the Macareña?
Of the Chipmunks© singing "Dirty Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap)"?
Of a meerkat colony doing an interpretive line dance to anything by Rick Astley?
Posted by: BillT at June 21, 2009 12:48 AM
Bill, the fact that you allege knowledge of these videos is disturbing in a thrill-seeking sort of way.
Posted by: Cricket at June 21, 2009 01:31 AM
Heh -- I have absolutely no idea if they exist, Cricket, I merely claim the Moral High Ground (1,125 feet MSL) for not having linked to them.
Posted by: BillT at June 21, 2009 01:45 AM
Oh, De-yurr Lowered.
I just did some U-Toob snooping.
I just raised my Moral High Ground elevation by 11,375 feet...

I think Mr. Iowahawk must have some pretty sophisticated ELINT collection gear.....
He snagged this comm to the Iranians from Pbo:

I lean toward "you're Breaking My Heart" by the Chipmunks, or possibly "Don'tcha" by them as well...
No. You're Breaking My Heart wins. Manos abajos!

We like our Presidents "deep"
"deeply troubled" by the situation in Iran.
"deeply concerned" with the sentencing to 12 years hard labor of two American journalists by North Korea
"deeply saddened" by recruiter shooting
"deeply concerned" about Gaza
"deeply disappointed" by sentencing of American journalist in Iran to 8 years
"deeply concerned" about hurricane Gustav.
"deeply saddened" about troop deaths at U.S. Base In Iraq
"deeply interested" in strengthening ties with Pakistan.
PREVIOUS on our great orator president: Obama just wants to be very clear.

*pops top of industrial-sized, industrial-strength, brain wash, hands it to wardrobe mistress*
Yanno I just re-issued this warning for Boq not too long ago...., by now, one would think *some of us* would have enough practice at staying on script.

Posted by: Ree at June 21, 2009 01:33 PM
Sorry - I missed the warning you issued to Boq. Gotta pay closer attention next time.
Can I get a refill? Thanks.
Posted by: Sly's Wardrobe Mistress at June 21, 2009 01:46 PM
*pours third Blue Hawaiian, looks around...*
Alright! Who ate the last of the guac?!
Did you still need the brain wash?
Posted by: DL Sly at June 21, 2009 03:24 PM
I'm not sure if it's good or bad that I'm late to this - the clip is no longer viewable.
Oh, well. At least I learned that a gun party is no relation to a gun show.
Posted by: Elise at June 21, 2009 06:09 PM
I didn't touch the guac. Not my thing. And yes, I do still need the brain wash, please.
Posted by: Sly's Wardrobe Mistress at June 21, 2009 07:48 PM
I think I saw a ribbon snake eyeing the guac, earlier...

*Hands bottle of brain wash to Wardrobe Mistress.......draws kukri knife*
Did it have a blue thong on?
Posted by: DL Sly at June 22, 2009 01:47 AM
Nope, just the ribbon.
Posted by: BillT at June 22, 2009 04:41 AM
I was all up to watch BillT's video of ribbon snakes doing the macarena until he confessed that they were merely a brilliant idea that hadn't yet been realized. Now I'm going to go cruise YouTube for silly animal videos until my disappointment wears off.
Posted by: Texan99 at June 22, 2009 09:35 AM
I will confess that there is no such thing as the "ribbon snake". I made that up because I liked the way it sounded and was too lazy to Google my snaketacular friend.
I suspect that he is a common garter snake, however.
Posted by: Cassandra at June 22, 2009 09:41 AM
Strikes me that a snake wouldn't particularly like being used as a garter. And if it DID, would you really want a perv like that holding up your stockings?
Posted by: MikeD at June 22, 2009 10:39 AM
Garter snakes are commonly called "ribbon snakes" in some areas of the Eastern Seaboard -- usually those areas in which the thong is considered an item of everyday apparel, rather than one reserved for guacamole parties...
Posted by: BillT at June 22, 2009 11:08 AM
We call any longitudinally striped snake a ribbon snake down here.
Posted by: Texan99 at June 22, 2009 01:39 PM
No matter where I'm living at the time, I call any snake -- longitudinally striped or otherwise -- dead meat, then craft material.
Posted by: DL Sly at June 22, 2009 02:08 PM
I call any snake...dead meat...
I thought you said you didn't *like* snake in your chili...
Posted by: BillT at June 22, 2009 04:21 PM
Welp, then they are called Ribbon Snakes round here...
Posted by: Sly's Wardrobe Mistress at June 22, 2009 04:27 PM
Yanno.....I've killed plenty of rattler, and it says something when neither coyote, buzzard nor rat will take a headless, rattleless snake body. I think I'll live just a little longer in the fantasy world I've created where I am somewhat slightly more discerning in what I eat.*
*- firefighting and college days not withstanding, of course.
Posted by: DL Sly at June 22, 2009 04:53 PM
"I am somewhat slightly more discerning in what I eat"Based on that I'd guess that you do not have this cook book in your kitchen? =;^/
Posted by: bt_4wheelin-gourmet_hun at June 22, 2009 05:34 PM
For one horrible, insane moment, I was afraid that was a link to the cookbook that Boq foisted on us in an e-mail.
[note to Boq: don't even *think* of doing it...]
Posted by: BillT at June 22, 2009 06:47 PM
"Based on that I'd guess that you do not have this cook book in your kitchen? =;^/"
Ummmm, well, actually.......
Hey, I did say *slightly*. And I eat chili for breakfast.........still.

Roadkill Cookbook: Around here, we take a can of blue spray paint with us on the way to town and mark any roadkill we see. Then on the way back, we know anything that isn't marked is fresh enough to take home and throw in the pot.
