Autogynephelia et al.

1. "Boomerang Hippo" would be a good name for a band.

2. Huh?

3. Knorr discontinued their Newburg sauce mix. Now what the hell am I supposed to do? Don't even get me started on Screaming Yellow Zonkers.

4. Maybe someone put the left side of Cheney's head in a vice when he was a kid. Maybe that's how he got that permanent evil scowl.

5. Barrel o' ugh: Elizabeth Edwards, Carrie Prejean--and most notably--Palin's book deal! Can't wait to read a whole book of this:
There have been so many things written and said through mainstream media that have not been accurate, and it will be nice through an unfiltered forum to get to speak truthfully about who we are and what we stand for and what Alaska is all about.

I would not be surprised if Cheney's recent activity is not some sort of rear-guard action designed to head off a possible future indictment in the whole torturing people thing.

Oh, and Carrie Prejean isn't a disease. She's a symptom.

"to speak truthfully about who we are and what we stand for and what Alaska is all about."

It's a two-book deal? The Alaska one could be interesting.

The Fool said...

"We"..."us"...oh shit! Palin is NOT one of us!! She must be talking about her inbred Wasillabilly trailer trash brethren. It's either that, or she really needs to learn how to write in the first person and leave her schizoid personalities out of things.

Earl Tesch said...

So, here's a question.

If Katie Couric asks Palin what books she's reading, will Palin be able to cite her own book?

Damn. I had forgotten about Screaming Yellow Zonkers. Now what do I do with that craving???

Catch MEET JOHN DOE on TCM sometimes. Dick Cheney looks a little like Edward Arnold.

Kirk Jusko said...

All you Captain Marvel fans out there, Cheney also looks a bit like Dr. Silvania.

Seafood Newburg


Scallops, cleaned 5 ounces
Lobsters, blanched 2 each
Shrimp, shelled and 6 ounces
Olive Oil 1 fluid ounce
Shallots, chopped 1 Tbsp
Brandy 2 fluid ounces
Clarified butter 1 ounce
Madeira 6 fluid ounces
Heavy cream 12 fluid
Egg yolks 4 each
Salt, to taste
White pepper, to taste

1. Cut the lobster into pieces. Reserve the coral and tomalley (liver).
2. Heat the olive oil and butter over high heat.
3. Saute the seafood until the scallops and shrimp are firm. Remove the lobster pieces from their shells and return.
4. At service (when you'll be eating), add the brandy; flambe it. Add the Madeira and simmer until nearly reduced to a sec (nearly dry).
5. Blend the heavy cream and yolks. Add this to the pan and cook over very gentle heat until thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Serves 4.

Al's Notes: You don't have to use scallops, lobster, or shrimp. A good local fish (walleye, perch, trout, salmon come to mind) will do just as well if one is on a budget. Just substitute them for the scallops, lobster and shrimp, and saute them accordingly.

It's important to cook the yolks and heavy cream over low heat. Eggs don't like to be heated up quickly - if you use too high a heat, they'll scramble. The cream and yolks are what is known as a liason, and act to thicken a liquid slowly as they cook.

Cheney probably got the permanent scowl from having to look at Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Hillary Clinton when he was president of the Senate. That would do it for me, anyway.

I am confident that Sarah's book will set the record straight on her candidacy for VPOTUS, and prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that she was slimed by the drive-by media.

Liberals, Barack Hussein Obama, and feminazis quaking in their boots over what a strong christian pro-life and anti-homosexual woman will do to them in 2012.

I knew Al was going to do that!

With the Knorr stuff, I just put some powder in a pan and mixed it with something (can't remember) and I had some sauce.

Now I've got to do egg yolks and shit.


I am glad there's a recipe for Zonkers. Lord, mebbe ya should mix up a batch, smoke ya some sweet Mother Nature, then get down with your old lady and munch out. You'll see the world in a whole new way, baby!

Richard is suffering from contraction of the left ventricle which makes his face do that. But yeah...

He is trying to be the face of the Republican party...I dunno, I kinda LIKED the two-party system.

Darlin', hit Big Lots for the Newburg sauce mix. Buy it all up for armageddon is a ways off.

"Buttloads of Hummus" would also be a good name for a band.
