Quote from: Garrison Keillor's Pontoon
Lutefisk is cod that has been dried in a lye solution. It looks like the desiccated cadavers of squirrels run over by trucks, but after it is soaked and reconstituted and the lye is washed out and it's cooked, it looks more fish-related, though with lutefisk, the window of success is small. It can be tasty, but the statistics arenít on your side. It is the hereditary delicacy of Swedes and Norwegians who serve it around the holidays, in memory of their ancestors, who ate it because they were poor. Most lutefisk is not edible by normal people. It is reminiscent of the afterbirth of a dog or the world's largest chunk of phlegm.

You're weird, sir.

I'd be willing to taste lutafisk.  I'm an adventurous eater.

Oh, it's not for eating.  The rewards can be so much greater if you tithe it.

I should have taken you to a lutefisk fest when you were up here.  You would have torn your tongue out from the smell alone.
Yes. Read the thread if you want, or skip to page 7 and be dismissive.

No no you see, by date Ghost means "chased his wife around the house with his penis till she cried".


I do not know exactly why, but I find the thought of chasing someone around with your penis until they cry to be in a whole new realm of hilarious.

Musashi, if for anything, I have to thank you for this comment because each time I read it I laugh.  :D

I bought some COG tags (From Gears of War) for my 8 year old nephew and had them delivered to his house.

He called me and thanked me. He's a cute kid. I find I'm happy to be part of his life, his father is garbage.



Also, I am now jealous of his COG tags, the things are made out of real metal and pretty awesome.

I suppose.  I'm not sure what context they're coming from with the rest of the stuff, but the bits they quoted in that piece don't seem particularly douchey.  I think it's a pretty well-recognized fact that human beings (especially men) have natural tendencies toward behaviors that are prohibited by social mores (regardless of what culture you're talking about).  Stating the fact doesn't constitute excusing such behaviors.

Here's the whole post http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/pegs_and_holes/

The context for the cheating and dick tweets and stuff had to do with that Wiener guy tweeting dick stuff and probably powerful guys cheating or something. I think the point he was trying to make is that politicians are sometimes above the law and if all dudes were above the law they would be cheating and sending out dick pictures and raping people.

Also he said
Quote from: Dilbert guy
The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It's just easier this way for everyone. You don't argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn't eat candy for dinner. You don't punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don't argue when a women tells you she's only making 80 cents to your dollar. It's the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles.

Sorry for the derail in the thread that is supposed to be about happy but Dilbert guy just really grinds my gears.

Some fifteen year old stalking asshole once sent, for a month, nude pics to a dude who's a friend of mine in his late twenties, and I learned from him that he could be sent to jail for her bullshit. Thankfully, no law officials ever found out, at least no asshole ones.

Kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts, and kohlrabi are actually all cultivars of the same species, Brassica oleracea.
