It’s Veteran’s Day!

November 11th, 2008 by skippy

And so I’m keeping my post light tonight, as I am spending the evening with Chinese takeout, the Left 4 Dead demo, and The Guild on DVD.

And so here are a bunch or random thoughts I never got around to using for any other posts.

  • Veteran’s Day should be a national holiday, but only for Veteran’s.  Everyone else has to work.  And bring us beer.  And naked women.
  • Most people on the internet would rather eat a live baby than read an opinion they disagree with, even when it’s just the set up to a joke.
  • If you are a morbidly obese black man, you should not go out in public wearing a red sweater over a white collared shirt.
  • If you are a morbidly obese black man and you do go out in public wearing a red sweater over a white collared shirt, you should probably have a better sense of humor about people singing the theme song to cartoons based off of Bill Cosby’s work.
  • A ferret can burrow completely through an unattended lemon meringue pie, cartoon style, in about 3 and a half seconds.
  • Last week David corrected me for incorrect use of the word “equestrian”.  Normally that sort of behavior annoys me, and would result in him being banned from my compound once the inevitable zombie uprising gets underway.  But his invention of Zombie Cowboy Boxing is awesome enough to make up for it.
  • I really want Zombie Cowboy Boxing to be a real sport.  I would be glued to the set while it was showing.  It would also make an awesome video game.  I’m picturing a rugby/polo hybrid, but with zombies.
  • I think all professional sports franchises could be improved with the inclusion of flesh eating zombies.
  • In fact, there aren’t many situations I can think of that are not improved by the inclusion of cannibalistic undead.   Reality TV shows.  Motorcycle races.  Cat Shows.  The Democratic National Convention.  The O’Reilly Factor.  Oprah.
  • Zombies are kind of like pasta: you can serve them with anything.

    I completely agree with veterans day being a national holiday for veterans only. I also like the part about the beer and naked women


    paula reply on November 12th, 2008 10:01 am:

    Now now, let’s be fair: do the lady veterans get nekkid guys? And what about our gay veterans, do they get the nekkid person of thier choice?


    Minty reply on November 12th, 2008 5:19 pm:

    That was my first thought, too, and I’m not even a veteran. Go figure. Must be all that crazy feminism stuff my mother crammed into my head.

    Captcha: “21 Guthers.” Why yes, I do believe female veterans would appreciate that.


  3. Fairest of All Says:

    Definately the Democratic National Convention.
    In fact,I would be happy to find some formerly free scalped tickets so they could attend….
    the result of the last democratic national convention.
    I know some people who are disappointed they did not show up sooner.
    maybe they could stop by and visit Nancy for dessert.


  4. Tzanti Says:

    I haven’t been watching this but it appears you and Channel4 are on the same wavelength.



  5. Andrew Says:

    Morbidly obese black men? Zombies? Mobidly obese black zombies?

    Captcha: About clever – About clever what?


  6. Speed Says:

    Here’s an irony: I work with a bunch of military retirees as a contractor at Ft. Bragg. The only guy to get Veteran’s Day off, since he works for another company, is the only guy on site NOT a veteran.


    Lauren reply on November 12th, 2008 7:58 pm:

    my mom and I will be going to Ft. Bragg next weekend. We’re going for the street dedication to my uncle Randy Shughart and Gary Gordon.


    skippy reply on November 12th, 2008 8:25 pm:

    Wow. Well thank your family for everything they’ve given to our country for me please.


    Lauren reply on November 12th, 2008 8:26 pm:

    Will do.

    CCO reply on November 12th, 2008 10:42 pm:

    Ditto what Skippy said, Ma’am. You may be interested in a story one of your uncle’s buddy’s wrote at: http://www.milstory.com/issue1/miltribute.htm

    Some of y’all may want to check out this site:

    Lauren reply on November 13th, 2008 2:54 pm:

    Thank you very much for those sites. I really appreciate it!

    CCO reply on November 14th, 2008 9:32 am:

    You’re very welcome.

  7. Billy Says:

    The only problem I can see with zombies is I would be thinking too much about hamburgers to pay attention, zombie movies always makes me hungry for some reason. Though zombie fat albert sounds kind of funny.


  8. JoAnn Says:

    Hey, some of us veterans are women you know. I want to switch the naked women option for a “well-developed 25 year old in a swimsuit while he massages my feet” choice please.

    Wiezen or hefe-weizen for the beer also, none of that dark chewy nasty stuff my husband likes. Porters and stouts…bleh.


    Stickfodder reply on November 12th, 2008 5:59 pm:

    Since all the other guys seem to be avoiding this subject I’ll be the first to agree with you. I demand more options! Oh and as for the girls do veterans get to choose what they look like?


    Andrew reply on November 13th, 2008 1:51 pm:

    Nope. Only verteran woman get that option. We just have to take what is given us. Although right now I would forego the beer in favor of a really good temple mead.


    JoAnn reply on November 14th, 2008 6:49 am:

    Is temple mead a brand name or a specific type of mead? I have had fast meads, slow meads, florals and fruity meads, even one that was called “Rosepetal Escargot” (they didn’t notice the dried snail trails on the rosepetals until most of them had been added to the mead to flavor it). How is temple mead made?

  9. Dave Van Domelen Says:

    Zombies are also like pasta in that if you leave them in the boiling water too long they get all sticky and yucky. Zombies are best when served al dente.


  10. Dave in NC Says:

    I believe we need more details on Zombie Cowboy Boxing and how I may invest in such a venture so that I may make billions and retire to a fortress to await the zombie hordes.


  11. TeratoMarty Says:

    Re: the ferret. I DEMAND VIDEO! I’d conduct the experiment myself, but lack the neccessary mustelid.


    Stickfodder reply on November 12th, 2008 5:57 pm:

    Me too or at least the story behind it.


  12. Anonymous and STILL Employed Says:

    Yep, zombies go with everything. Especially gameshows. Anyone who saw the “Fun-Dead” show on Shaun of the dead or “Dead or Undead” on Peter Serafinowicz will agree. Both are probably knockin around Youtube somewhere


  13. Tony Says:

    This web site is the only hit when googling for “zombie cowboy boxing”. (Remove the quotemarks and you’d probably get a lot more hits, but that’s beside the point.) Something must be done about this!


  14. GunRunner Says:

    Nope…the quoty marks make no diff. I did however find a site with Zombie Cowboy Boxers! Cafepress something or another. “La la la la I got the dead in my pants…..”

    Captcha = strip Mor – Hmmm, guess them Boxers be bitin’ in


  15. Sabra Says:

    Interestingly enough, zombies would probably also make Veterans’ Day interesting. How about a zombie to deliver the beer & chase down a nekkid woman for you?


    Stickfodder reply on November 12th, 2008 5:55 pm:

    No it would then consume the nekkid women


  16. TheShadowCat Says:

    What about the Republican National Convention? Don’t they deserve some zombie lovin’ too?

    Stickfodder reply on November 12th, 2008 5:56 pm:

    Yeah they definitely deserve the fast zombies.


    TheShadowCat reply on November 12th, 2008 6:17 pm:

    On roller skates.


  17. Chris Says:

    Heh. Zombies came up during our conversation at lunch today. Well, conversation in that there were six of us ragging on one person who is a Twilight fan. Zombies are the gift that keeps on giving (contrary to vampires, they only come around once).


  18. CCO Says:

    Oh, BTW, Matt Burden at Blackfive always reprints Mike Royko column on Veterans Day. Here’s the link: http://www.blackfive.net/main/2008/11/veterans-day–1.html#more

    Good night, Mrs. Calabash, where ever you are.

    CCO / 00


  19. the intel guy Says:

    Yay for Veterans Day! The most important holiday ever!

    Captcha: Wo- 187th

    Well- I used to be a Rakkasan(187th Infantry).


  20. JoAnn Says:

    On another site I frequent, a discussion on zombies came up, undead Scottish zombies, and whether they would be willing to eat haggis. Then someone suggested that they would turn the haggis bags (made from the stomach of a sheep or cow) into zombie bagpipes. I don’t know if that line of thought can get much sillier, but feel free to try.


    Stickfodder reply on November 14th, 2008 7:50 am:

    I made this comment on the stick a fork in it “You know I’m looking at this little conversation now and cant help but think zombie haggis bagpipes. very sloppy.” It’s the second to last reply to the 8th comment. I made that comment on November 6th.


  21. JoAnn Says:

    Oh it was here! Sorry, we often have zombie discussion over at the Jonathan COulton website too, I forgot where I had seen it. Love the mental picture you created. By the way, Coulton is the one with the “Re:Your Brains” song on YouTube- if you like zombies, check it out. “All we want to do it eat your brains- we’re not unreasonable, I mean no one wants to eat your eyes”
