coffee or tea?

I have been wondering lately what beverage has more caffeine? Coffee wigs me out. Is it a different kind of caffeine or am I insane? Last night I came home after a fine night of dining and several glasses of ice tea and I fell asleep 10 minutes into Letterman. Yet I woke up at 5 in the morning ready to rearrange my sock drawer with my mind full of thoughts like; "can dogs read my mind?" "Who invented liquid soap and why?" "When is a good time to take a nap in a trash compactor?" "I wonder if some of the episodes of Star Trek were real?" "I should try to pull out all of my teeth with a pair of pliers."

Now what I'm wondering is if there is a delayed reaction to the type of caffeine in ice tea? Was it just pulsing through my veins on a time delay like some sort of out of control alarm clock? Does anyone oot there have the answers? You see, if I had had a couple of cups of coffee after dinner I would have tried to shoot my television set last night because of an overflow of instant energy only to be followed by a crash not unlike that of an 8 year old after too many candy bars. Please give me some expert advice.

Yours Truly,

Steven a.m. Tweaker Poltz

Steve,

I am about to begin research to find you some answers.
When I drink coffee is does not keep my awake at all, unless it's completely black and cool enough where I can hold my nose and chug it. try it sometime.

There are some answers I do have already for you. It is never a good time to take a nap in a trash compactor, and don't pull our teeth, you need them to bite your toenails.

to be continued...

Posted by: Carence at March 3, 2004 8:05 AM

Of course you are insane. But just a little. And in a good way.

Don't try the teeth-pliers thing, though. That's painful.

And stick to tea. Coffee stinks.

Posted by: nobody at March 3, 2004 8:06 AM

how the hell could I have not spelled pliers right dammit! I went to Catholic school. See--the ice tea is rotting the infrastructure of my brain wave things and stuff. It isn't plyers you idiot steve. I am so mad at myself. Mice elf. Oh well, it is now fixed.

Hendrik Willem Brouwer of Holland, working for Lever Brothers. He received patent number US4065398: Liquid soap
composition. You can read more about this at http://www.delphion.com/details?pn=US04065398__
and why? as a better alternative than providing a community bar of soap (do you really want to wash your hands with a bar of soap covered with some stranger's dirt and germs?)(hi george), and as
a more comfortable alternative to providing powdered soap (I have used it in public restrooms in the past...feels like you are washing your hands with Ajax or Comet. Uncomfortable).

Coffee, brewed 8 ounces 135(mg) of Caffeine.
Tea, brewed bag, 8 ounces 50(mg) of Caffeine.

Obviously tea is for pussys.


Posted by: SoapFairy at March 3, 2004 8:17 AM

I don't have a definate answer for you, but I do have a solution: add more booze.

That'll counteract all that caffiene.

I like my coffee like my women--hot and bitter.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at March 3, 2004 8:30 AM

wow! you guys rule. i always wondered who invented liquid soap. and the patent # to boot. i feel at peace now. tea does have way less caffeine and the booze suggestion is great. booze is the yin to tea's yang.
thanks

Dogs can, and do read your thoughts.
That's why they often turn their backs on you, stretch and rip off a terrifying fart.

As for your frenetic burst of energy this morning, it may have more to do with the main course than the beverage.

:)

ps. HAHA you spelled PLIERS wrong!

Kissyface---never, NEVER eat asparagus with your coffee!

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at March 3, 2004 8:51 AM

coffee rhymes with toffee
and tea rhymes with pee...
there's your answer.

ps, all of the episodes of star trek were real. that's why we have microwave ovens and dental floss.

I thought booze was the yin to everything's yang??

Maybe I missed a step.

Posted by: Carence at March 3, 2004 4:20 PM

Carence,
You're absolutely correct. There are no missSteps in this life, only trips.

Woahhhh, that was deep. Do you think we can keep this blog post going?! Can we keep replying long into the night, making it the most popular blog post EVER?
I think we can, I think we can..

If you drink enough coffee, it'll take care of that blog. And how, Banky!

Dana,

I think that's a fantabulous idea!!

Did I spell pussys wrong? pussies? I'll blame Steve for starting the trend.

I should know better.

and why would I include the patent number?

I'm a geek. well, just a little, I'm a geekle.

Posted by: Carence at March 3, 2004 7:11 PM

We didn't do so well with keeping this going. Why don't you tell me about chai tea?

Additionally, I should probably be able to guess this, but I'm drawing a blank. Who is Rev. Spankalot?! Do I know you?

:)

Posted by: TiddlyWinks at March 4, 2004 6:43 AM

Hi Tiddly, da Rev here. Unless you've gone to any of Steve's shows in Santa Barbara, we probably haven't met. But hey, a stranger's just a friend you haven't met--so here's an official how-diddly-do to you!

Alas, I know nothing about chai tea, tai chi, Lucy Liu, or Siouxie Sioux.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at March 4, 2004 6:58 AM

Well hells bells Rev -- why the heck don't you play with us on the disScussion forum? Sometimes we're funny.

Posted by: Ms P at March 4, 2004 7:32 AM

Hey! I just posted some relevant Poltz news there! I'll try to be funny next time.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at March 4, 2004 7:49 AM

Chai translated into english is "tea"

so whenever I order a Chai Tea.. I'm saying, "Can i have a Tea Tea, please" ... and that's just silly.

It's yummy dana, very very yummy.

Posted by: Carence at March 4, 2004 8:07 AM

...and "sierra" means "mountains", and "sahara" means "desert"--I'm going hiking in the Mountains Mountains, and if I can afford it, take a trip to the Desert Desert...

Any opinions on Sanka?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at March 4, 2004 8:23 AM

I have no opinion on Sanka, but I do have to go to work now, so I hope there will be much threading when I get back.

Whatever happened to Hamilton, Joe, Frank and Reynolds?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at March 4, 2004 9:28 AM

Dr. Ludwig Roselius' scientific ingenuity led to the creation of decaffeinated coffee. For years, Roselius searched for a way to remove caffeine from coffee without diluting the flavorful taste and aroma. In 1903, Roselius and his team of researchers were given the opportunity to implement new techniques, using brine-soaked coffee beans that had been plunged into the sea during a storm. Roselius and his team discovered that a brine-soaked bean reacted differently to roasting and within a few years developed a technique that removed 97 percent of the caffeine without removing the flavor. A patent was issued for this process in Germany in 1906.

Shortly after, Roselius started a coffee company called Kaffee Hag and introduced his new product in Europe under various names in different countries. In France he named it Café Sanka, a contraction of the French phrase “sans caffeine.” In 1923, Roselius brought the product to the United States as Sanka, founding the Sanka Coffee Corporation in New York. Five years later, General Foods Corporation began to distribute Sanka for Roselius, and in 1932, General Foods purchased the product and the Sanka Coffee Corporation. Years later, in 1979, General Foods also purchased Roselius's original company, Kaffee Hag, from Roselius' son.

All this Sanka talk made me think of Tang.

Remember Tang?

I realize there is no connection, just humor me!

There is that song too, from 'weird' paul petroskey "there's a piece of meat in the tang"

Posted by: carence at March 4, 2004 12:30 PM

There is a connection!! They both have orange labels! And they both require the addition of water.

I don't like meat in my tang.

Wait. Is that Tang or 'tang?

:o

Posted by: ms. p at March 4, 2004 12:59 PM

golllllly! i went away for a day and realized that i have missed some great info. i should have said iced i think. i'm still not really sure. i do know that ted nugent "the nuge" has a song called "wang dang sweet poontang." i am so glad you put the patent # in the liquid soap info. i am now going to go and make a pitcher of sun tea. while we're at it-maybe the padres will make a pitcher out of david wells.

Posted by: steverino at March 4, 2004 4:56 PM

Oh my god... Where have you guys been all my life! Finally some people who are as nuts as I am (and also sounds like they drink as much coffee, whether decaf or not as I do to.... and are probably the least likely in the world to need it). Anyhoo... just thought i'd drop in and say hi! Can't wait for the Aus. Perth show (I might have a house with a big backyard by then... would a backyard BBQ show still be on the cards if this was the case?!). SJJP- would love to have a beer with you when you are in Perth and maybe show you the sights!!
Take it easy... and lay off the caffeine!
Oh... and thought for the day... Never hold your farts in. They travel up your spine, into your brain, and that's where shi**y ideas come from.

hi bilby.
hi rev. i remember the bonus jack. those were the days.
i just wanted the last word on this thread.

Posted by: steverino at March 5, 2004 12:28 AM

Last word?! It's over?! We can't disScuss Tang or Tea Tea or Ted Nugent's lyrical genius? Dogs and their mind reading abilities? Steve's inability to spell a simple implement found in 4 out of 5 tool boxes?

What a dictator.

"Piece of meat in the tang" by Weird Paul

There's a piece of meat in the Tang!

My dad felt kinda thirsty
he thought he'd have some tang
he said, "Someone's gonna hang!
There's a piece of meat in my Tang!"

We saw it floating 'round at the bottom
we didn't know what it was
My dad said, "What's that thang?
Floating around in my tang?"

My dad reached for the pitcher
my mom said, "That's Tang."
My dad said, "I know."

There's a piece of meat in the Tang (3x)
and I don't give a dang,
cause I don't like Tang!

Posted by: Carence at March 5, 2004 7:04 AM

i am suing all of you for not ending this thread. it is too popular and is in danger of hurting the other thread's feelings. he is going to be made fun of by the other threads when he goes to college. why am i making this thread a boy? maybe it is a transexual thread.

carence's sauce rules!

here is an additional verse that the record label wouldn't allow.

The devil was in our kitchen
my sisiter felt kind of a pang
she was listening to sting in the past tense
so i said " you like stang?"
she said " no, the reason i'm crying is that i am a vegan and someone ruined my tang."
the pots and pans went "CLANG"
"we put the meat in the tang"

the record label thinks my verse is too wordy.

will this thread ever end?

Posted by: steverino at March 5, 2004 8:15 AM

I love your verse and all of it's wordiness.

It is my goal to post an mp3 of the "tang" song now, so you guys can hear it.

It's a classic.

I'm sorry I continued this thread... it's all Dana's fault though.


Posted by: Carence at March 5, 2004 8:24 AM

thanks carence.

here is the way i really want to end my verse.

after the pots and pans say "we put the meat the in the tang!" they keep screaming and repeating the line over and over until they eventually start walking and marching around the house and then they set it all on fire all the time screaming louder and louder "WE PUT THE MEAT IN THE TANG!" Everyone dies in the family except the dog.

then in my video in my head the cops come and arrest the pots and pans and fox news has a debate aboot weather the pots have grown too powerful with their "liberal agenda"

Have I gone too far Carence?
sjjp

Posted by: steverino at March 5, 2004 8:31 AM

You? Go to far??? NEVER!

Although, I'm a little concerned about your spelling.

weather?
you meant whether, no?

unless you did it on purpose, perhaps for comedic sake?? Because then, and only then.... it's hysterical.

Posted by: Carence at March 5, 2004 8:43 AM

Wasn't there grape Tang at one point in history? I believe it was kosher. And what aboot Chocodiles?

PS: avoid the new Jack in the Box fish sandwich...it ain't no Moby Jack.

As for the weather...it's foggy here.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at March 5, 2004 8:48 AM

yes i meant whether. but i am wondering if the past tense of whether is whather? also--if i drink sanka and then whack off can i refer to this beverage as spanka?
does anyone else have any concepts for the meat in the tang video. i am going to call my friend Mike Addis who directed the Hitchhiker Joe video. he will help.

Posted by: steverino at March 5, 2004 8:57 AM

Okay.. So I can't find the "tang" song online anywhere.

I found some other "weird paul" songs.

go to http://artists.iuma.com/IUMA/Bands/Weird_Paul_Petroskey/

I recommend "acting like mel torme" and "listening to your heart"

I'll work on getting "tang" out to y'all.

Posted by: Carence at March 5, 2004 8:58 AM

Hello to all of you. My name is Michael Addis and I directed the Hitchhiker Joe video as well as a short film that Steve had a cameo in - where he had only one line. The line was "Omelette" and it required 16 takes to get it right. And by "right" I mean - he didn't sound like a Klingon. Steve also co-wrote a song which is in my first feature, POOR WHITE TRASH - showing on Comedy Central this summer. I can go on, but my point is just this: I'm the only man qualified to direct the video for "Meat in my Tang." I have a team of artisans sketching storyboards now that will clarify my vision. Basically, it will be the most amazing complicated piece of Dadaist cinema since HR Puffenstuff or even the Dr. Laura TV show. I don't want to get into the technical effects here, but I assure you - YOU WILL BELIEVE A POT AND PAN CAN DANCE! That's all I want to say about it. For legal reasons we will change the name "Fox News" too "The Third Reich Info-tainment Network." And when we see one of their show hosts debating if the cookware is out of line, he will get a "counter-point" argument from a Democratic spokesperson. We will then cut to their choice for Democratic debater: a chinch bug. Please send your checks to Steve to fund this super-expensive endeavor. And let me close by saying this: if you were an astronaut and you risked your life for science and your country, don't you think the government should spring for REAL orange juice instead of crappy Tang?

Love,

Michael

Posted by: Michael Addis at March 5, 2004 9:04 AM

Uh Steve, I'm not sure that ejaculate qualifies as a "beverage". But it was a good effort.

Perhaps an aperitif?

When will casting begin for the Meat-Tang video? I've got a 10inch T-Fal named Lawrence who has been bugging me to let him break out of his saute routine.

Herr Addis, that was a great point about the astronauts. The only thing Tang is good for is making screwdrivers.

:)

Posted by: ms. p at March 5, 2004 9:47 AM

Oh my god it’s like the spelling police around here, I’m scared to write in!

Michael, that’s hilarious, I agree; HR Puffenstuff ruled, and as far a NASA is concerned, in addition to the real OJ, a nice steak dinner not those crappy space food sticks in chocolate and vanilla!

Love,
Loki

Posted by: Loki at March 5, 2004 9:49 AM

Dear Ton(y) Lok(i);
Please do not despair. The spelling police are neither malevolent nor uncomplimentary. We are a benevolent society only trying to better the world one word at a time.

On that note, I just realized for the first time in my life that malevolent and benevolent appear to be antonyms. It seems so obvious now that I've typed the words in such close proximity.

So hey, I learned something new today, and I hope you did too.

Besides which, stoopid sexy moderators get to edit their posts. So Miss Spell away!!

I don't really have a concept... but I would love to have an animated piece of meat .. ya know with eyes and a mouth singing the song sort of orange liquid... predictable, yes, but still entertaining.

and when I say "piece of meat", I mean steak or porkchops, not THAT!!!!

you guys are disgusting.

Posted by: Carence at March 5, 2004 10:54 AM

I should learn to preview before I post. I don't like that we can't edit these!!

I meant... the animated piece of meat singing the song in a glass (or pitcher) of tang.

this is gonna be huge!

Posted by: feck at March 5, 2004 10:57 AM

Herr Director sir? Will you please notify us when your film will be shown on Comedy Central? I have the attention span of a 3 year old on crack.
I can't believe you got Poltz and William Devane! Genius casting!

Carence, I don't know what you're inferring with that steak and porkchop comment, but this vegetarian finds it most offensive.

Bitch.

Posted by: ms p at March 5, 2004 11:00 AM

Ted Nugent cut a piece of meat out of his leg with a chain saw when he was filming his reality show. Maybe in the video the surprise ending could be when the nuge shows up to reclaim his leg meat out of the tang. He could say, "Hey, eat meat, but don't eat MY meat!"

Posted by: Ramon at March 5, 2004 12:28 PM

I like this blog entry and the ensuing chaos. It reminds me of Mama.

Dear Ms. P.,

Regarding the spelling of "keister": Very good; I was testing you. You get 50 gold stars!

Interesting fact: "Keister" can also be spelled "keester."

Perhaps I should have replaced "ass" with "fanny" or "derriere" instead.

Tea as I've been thinking about lately oddly has more threobommnin things which effect the cardiovascular system much more than coffee which only really effects the mental state better coffee if heart attach I guess but I don't really know. They people around me still threaten my daily existence constantly making my real life neegledgably possibly beyond taking more abuse from them or having the always reading over my shoudler and destroying my dreams and inspiration my own that is. and ability to communicate right what I have had to say and still sort of do...it's a scarey world I guess these days but they do to me what they feel the world is doing to itself to not be a part of it like they aren't still still on earth you know? but I guess life will go on with this UNFRieNDLY fire...and displacement of my mind and abilities for no good reason I can tell you that...thanks for listeneitng...I'll work on it all I can good luck to everything. missin you and all.

Dear NiceFreckles,

Was your "chihuahua pee" comment in any way a reference to the movie Dirty Work?

If not, I recommend it. It's a very funny movie starring Norm Macdonald, Artie Lange, Chris Farley, and Chevy Chase, among others.

Rob the Drummer, after watching School of Rock this weekend, I must concur on its genius. However, I'm more than a little perturbed that you awarded me 50 gold stars. You were just throwing me a bone weren't you? What will happen to my gold stars? Will they end up on my permanent record?


Posted by: ms p at March 8, 2004 4:02 AM

Ms. P,

Rob the drummer and I watched School of Rock yesterday as well. I think we are going to incorporate it into weekly band practice. To keep us in line and in good spirits with the rock Gods.

Posted by: Ms. p at March 9, 2004 8:36 AM

Dear Ms. P.,

I think "Immigrant Song" is about Led Zeppelin being high.

Seriously, I think you're reading too far into it. The lyrics are vague and open to interpretation, but let's not get carried away by putting meaning where there is none.

Don't worry about being dumb. We all are sometimes.

We're still talking about tea. Amazing. So what flush do you prefer Steve? Are you a first, second or autumnal kind of guy?

Cream? Sugar? Lemon? Mint? Hot? Warm? Iced?

Caffeine makes me happy,

i must have the last word. it is a sickness i have toward this thread.

Posted by: steverino at March 12, 2004 8:38 AM

Oh hell, I couldn't make it all the way through. Yes, it is iced tea. Also, I think that in addition to caffeine, tea contains theopholine (probably misspelled, this way it looks more religious...) which has the bonus effect of making people think that whatever transient inanity that crosses their mind is worth sharing, uncut, at any given moment. Oops, better go finish my tea.
Oh, my bad, was that the last word? :)

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at March 16, 2004 7:09 AM

Dear Rev,
If danger is your middle name, I'll need some proof. People go around spouting stuff like that willy nilly with no regard for those of us who REALLY have unusual middle names that highlight one of our attributes.

Love,
Ms. Tight Ass Pertussin

Posted by: ms p at March 16, 2004 10:37 AM

Dear Ms. Pertussin:

My son Rev. asked me to write you to set the record straight concerning my baby boy.

It was a freezing July afternoon in Fresno, California. My husband, Dan, and I were selling our firstborn child Susie Lou for enough gasoline to make it to the Wasco labor camp. We had been falsely accused of being Red agitators while picking grapes at the wage of 1/3 of a cent per ton at a winery in Santa Cruz California, just to the south of Dick's Automotive. The local Elks, Masons, Rotary and Weeblos led a torchlit march to our cardboard box, possibly with ill intent.

We had managed to escape with our lives, but not with the eleven cents we had earned at the winery. Fortunately, the road from Santa Cruz to Fresno is all downhill, so no gas was needed for the Corvair.

gotta go now...the Wheel's on.

More later,
Mrs. Spankalot

Posted by: Rev.Spankalot at March 16, 2004 6:48 PM

Dear Mrs. Spankalot,

I know you don't want to miss your "programs", but I'd really like to hear the ending of this sordid little tale.

I await your reply with bated breath. Wait, do I mean fetid?

Yours in fomentation,
Ms. P

Posted by: ms p at March 18, 2004 9:28 AM

ps.

I think Steve should write a song featuring words that begin with the letter "f". Like fetid and foment.

Posted by: ms p at March 18, 2004 10:01 AM

fiduciary firkin fealty fetal Fresno

So, we coast into Fresno; myself, Pa, Susie Lou, the twins (Durward and Kirby), Granny, Uncle Dick, er, Barney, two dead chickens, three radishes, and a pack of Chesterfields. Did I mention that I was great with child at the time? Well, I was.

Pa sold the dead chickens and one radish to a nearby Armenian restaurant called "Ian's". That got us enough money to buy Susie Lou a left shoe. Now Susie Lou had retail value, as the toe that ate roast beef on her left foot was tattooed with a picture of John Kruk's left testicle, which caused nausea in all who gazed upon it.

Susie Lou was an old maid of 22 at this time, and finding a husband, even in Fresno, was going to be difficult. Fortunately, we found a wino near the Pep Boys on Blackstone who was willing to buy Susie Lou for three dollars, a bag of empty pop bottles, and a half-can of low sodium Spam. It goes without saying that Susie Lou was more than thrilled at her good luck; her betrothed told us that he once lived in Otay Mesa, where he had a job deveining shrimp. My Lord, how many times had Pa and I heard Susie Lou singing to herself "I want a man with a slow hand/I want a man with a deveining touch"? So after a tearful but happy good-bye, the newlyweds pushed their shopping cart toward Clovis.

The nuptuals over, Pa and me took the twins, Durward and Kirby, to the recycling center, where we received 78 cents for the pop bottles. Meanwhile, Granny and Uncle Dick, er, Barney feasted on the Spam and the two remaining radishes.

Flush with $3.78 in cold hard cash, we piled into the Corvair. Then Pa and the twins, Durward and Kirby, got out to push, as we had no gas yet. We rolled into a nearby Terrible Herbst, where gas was going for 16 cents a gallon, and filled up. A full tank of gas! We could now make it all the way to Wasco! And we had enough money to buy a half-dozen Chik-O-Stiks to eat on the way.

So, down Highway 41 we went, past Handord, Kettleman City (where Kirby got carsick), and over the hills. After a few hours, the blazing sunny sky gave way to a thick fog and cooler temperatures. In the distance, we could see three tall smokestacks and something that looked like an enormous rabbit poo.

"This ain't Wasco!" Pa said. "Wasco ain't got no oceans!" Sure enough, we could hear the sound of water rushing.

Just then, I figured out what had happened. "Pa," says I, "my water just broke!"

Ooh! Ken Berry's guesting on "CHiPs"! Gotta go...

Posted by: ms p at March 19, 2004 4:24 AM

Crap!! It's "were" not "where", I D I O T.


Posted by: ms p at March 19, 2004 4:26 AM

Alrighty Then...

So, Pa and I, Granny, Uncle Dick, er, Barney, and the twins (Durward and Kirby) took ourselves one heck of a wrong turn. Instead of beautiful Wasco and the labor camp of our dreams, we end up near the ocean, at some town next to three big smokestacks and one heckuva big rock. And here I am, getting ready to birth a baby.

So Pa parks the Corvair in the parking lot at the beach. He tells Granny, "Granny, go into town and see what kinda blankets you can get for that pack of Chesterfields, a radish, and two Chik-O-Stiks." So granny takes off toward town. Meanwhile, I do believe I'm dilating.

Uncle Dick, er, Barney says, "I'll see if that there big rock has a name, and ask someone if they have boiling water". Kirby (one of the twins) and Durward (another of the twins) help me into a supine position on the sand. I'm dilating to beat the band now.

So here I am, contracting toward childbirth, with Durward and Kirby (the twins) fanning me with big pieces of kelp, and Pa trying to keep me calm by singing my favorite song, "The Impossible Dream". After about an hour, Granny returns, not with blankets but with salt water taffy. Damn: a pack of Chesterfields, a radish and two Chik-O-Stiks wasted. Though you'll never convince Durward and Kirby (the twins) of that; they went after that taffy like a blow torch on a can of peaches. Meanwhile, my contractions are now 23 seconds apart.

After another 10 minutes, Uncle Dick, er, Barney returns with three other men, a one-legged sea gull, and an almost empty quart bottle of Colt .45. Sumbitch is drunk. "Welcome ta Morrro Bay! Home of the big rock!" he screams, before falling face down in the sand, allowing the one- legged sea gull to hop away.

Pa can't take it anymore. "I can't take it anymore!" he said, "Goldang stupid relations; I shoulda sold them to that wino in Fresno instead of Susie Lou!" The twins, Durward and Kirby, break out in tears and r-u-n-n-o-f-t. Pa runs toward town. Meanwhile, I'm dilating like a coked-out lemur.

So here I am, alone, about to give birth. A small boy of about four years of age, wearing a St. Christopher medal around his neck and carrying a clamming fork, walks up to me.

"Lady" he says, "you need some help?" The lad has an odd accent. "Where ya from, lad?" says I, through gritted teeth. "I'm from Halifax, eh," he says. "My name is Steven Joseph Joshua Judges Ruth John Jacob Poltzenheimerschmidt." Granny, hearing this, said "Boy, if you're ever gonna make it in pop music, you better shorten up that name." "OK then", says the boy.

Unbeknownst to all of us, while the lad from Halifax was telling us his name, I gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. Unfortunately, the expulsion of the afterbirth attracted the one-legged sea gull, three sea lions, and Uncle Dick, er, Barney.

As they all advanced upon my baby and me, the plucky Nova Scotian brandished his clamming fork at both man and beast. "Take off, eh!" he shouted. Both man and beasts put a collective egg in their shoes and beat it; my new baby and I were safe.

"How can I thank you?" I asked the courageous lad.

"Uh...could you give your baby the middle name 'Danger' and make sure he comes to see me in Santa Barbara when I grow up and be a pop star?"

"You got it!" I tell him.

So, 39 years later, that baby, Rev. Danger Spankalot, has gone to every recent Santa Barbara show of that young boy from Halifax. Yes, that boy, Steven Joseph Joshua Judges Ruth John Jacob Poltzenheimerschmidt, grew up to be Steve Poltz.

And now you know....the rest of the story.

Because that would be weird.

Consider my proposal. Think of the children.

Freeze-dried Tasters' Choice rocks fairly consistantly, thought don't mention that to Geddy Lee--he's strictly a Maxwell House kind guy.

As for me, I kinda like a half-caff soy latte capuccino with a cinnamon stick and a water glass full of Ketel One on the side. And a jar of Trader Joes Colossal Garlic Stuffed Green Olives for noshing.

Peggy likes raw Lipton tea bags. Keeps her regular, y'know. She's so damm funny; I just wish I could see what she is doing.

I've never been to this forum before and happened upon it by accient when trying to renew my boyfriend's domain. Yes, I am Weird Paul's woman, no bull. I let the domain subscription run out and typed in the URL, and got this instead. I know that this isn't a thread about music, but what the hell, it isn't about coffee either.

Anyhoo, there is a small film about Paul to be finished sometime this year and I believe his parents are in it talking about the Tang incedent. Anyone wishing to make little animations or films, even in theory or in imagination, who wants to use Paul's music may go ahead and get in touch with either of us and will receive much cooperation.

We haven't done much with the IUMA page in over a year. Piece of Meat in the Tang was on mp3.com but we all know that went to hell in the proverbial handbasket. Until I get weirdpaul.com you can go to http://community-2.webtv.net/sabata/THEMUSICOFWEIRDPAUL/
Not that the people looking at this page care all that much. Wait, the Greylocks? Is this Rob the drummer chap a/k/a Guitari?
Both coffee and tea are delicious. I grew up in a home of very heavy coffee consumption and used to drink upwards of 5 cups a day. My mom would make me 'coffee-milk' (about half-coffee/half-milk) as a child (because real milk is gross) and I started drinking it black around age 13. Maybe it stunted my growth but I'd rather blame it on things that aren't fun. I only drink about one cup a week now.

So I walked into 7-11 this morning and poured myself a Big Gulp coffee. I added 28 sugars and 13 equals and dropped a boston creme doughnut in for good measure. Then I carried my breakfast to the cashier station and carefully placed it upon the counter. As I reached into my purse I noted that I only had a $20 and the "help" hate that. I quickly formulated a plan. I grasped the huge steaming cup of coffee and with all the force I could muster I flung it into the horrified face of the slack jawed employee. I brayed laughter and charged out of the store, shouting, "Steve Poltz!! Steve Poltz!"

I want Skittles.

Hey Rev, can we play roulette with Skittles?

Posted by: ms p at June 14, 2004 10:44 AM

Hmmm....only if the Skittles have caffeine.

How 'boot those chocolate covered espresso bean thingies?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 15, 2004 1:54 PM

Okay -- we can do that I guess. Just don't slip any yogurt covered anything.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 16, 2004 9:34 PM

I've just come to realize exactly what a hold nicotine has on me.

If I'd had coffee this morning before I applied this freakin patch I'd probably be spinning like a top in the corner about now.

How's the Rev, mon?

:)

Posted by: ms p at June 21, 2004 6:42 AM

Da Rev is good, mon.

Went to LA dis weekend, to Amoeba Records in Hollyweird (lotsa $5 cds!) and McCabe's Gittar Shop in Santa Monica to see Tom Russell--he was awesome possum.

Now I'm at work. Withoot tea shades. But had coffee dis AM.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 21, 2004 11:55 AM

I hate to admit it, but I don't get this tea shades thing you keep saying. :D

Posted by: ms p at June 21, 2004 2:51 PM

Tea Shades (ti-shayds)n. Sunglasses used by hippy stoners to hide their cannabis-reddened eyeballs from parents, teachers, and PO-lice. Mon.

Hand soap? GUNK waterless mechanics' hand cleaner (orange scent).

I useta work in my dad's auto parts store.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 21, 2004 3:30 PM

ahhhh!! Sorry to be so thickish.
I'm so behind the times I still rely on Visine. Just push me off to the old folks stoner home.

As for the hand soap, GUNK?! Isn't that like Comet mixed in with crappy lotion? Where you been putting those hands mon, that they need that kinda beating?

Wait.

Maybe you shouldn't answer that out here where the fuzz can see it.

Posted by: ms p at June 21, 2004 5:13 PM

ok, ok....

I really use Tova Borgnine's Touch O'Pansy with extra aloe, lanolin and retsin, in the special delicate touch pump bottle, for that soft girly hands feel.

Good for whacking purposes too.

I didn't say that, did I?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 21, 2004 8:02 PM

Dear Rev,
I've been contemplating your "username" for some time now.
Most of the regulars on the forum have chosen names that relate in some way to their relationship with Steve. (Real or imagined. HA!)

And I was just wondering -- what inspired you to choose yours?

I had ordered an unsweetened Extra Large Iced Tea from Wendy's to accompany my lunch today. The large paper cup covered in wax was sweating profusely all over my desk and it looked so cold and inviting. My hands trembled ever so slightly as I tore the paper from the straw and unceremoniously slammed it through the cups crappy plastic cover. I used both hands to grasp my 32 oz of joyous caffeine. As the straw neared my lips, my breathing was quick and shallow. I gently placed my quivering lips around the hollow drinking stick and sucked with great power.

As the cold liquid reached my mouth I realized immediately that the rest of my day would suck. Those fuckin ASSHOLES sweetened my tea.

:)


Posted by: ms p at June 22, 2004 10:14 AM

I slammed my coffee this morning and it made me sweat.

My username was bestowed upon me by Steve his own self: After the show at Soho in Santa Barbara CA, Steve was hanging around with some of us groupies. The bar was closed, drinks were flowing like wine, people were SMOKING in the bar (a defomate no-no in Cali), and so forth. Steve and I and another guy were passing around the peace pipe, and he asked me if I would post the set list on his web site. I said "sure!". He wrote down a bunch of stuff on a scrap of paper and told me I had to post as Reverend Spankalot. When I joined the site, I shortened it to Rev.

Ok, gotta get rid of some o this coffee, and make some fone calls for work. Mon.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 22, 2004 11:16 AM

So what is it aboot you that just screams,
"Reverend Spankalot"?

Were you wearing a collar? ;)

My morning dose of caffeine is being administered this morning via a large icy cold diet cola.
What say U?

Posted by: ms p at June 23, 2004 4:02 AM

I miss Steve. Do you think if I won the lottery I could pay him to come live with me? I think he'd make a snappy house boy.

Posted by: ms p at June 23, 2004 7:47 AM

I guess it was the combination of my Christlike demeanor and my hairy palm.

I'm off today, so I went to the coffee hoose and had some kinda Kona blend.

Would you make Steve wear a houseboy uniform? Or would it be a clothing-optional kinda thing? Think he knows how to make coffee?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 23, 2004 11:55 AM

OKp, yer turn...why for pertussin?

Cuz of your pert tussin?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 23, 2004 2:09 PM

I got blocked when I tried to post earlier. :mad:

Ewww to your hairy palms! You're forming a lovely image in me head. :)

Steve would definitely have to wear a uniform so we wouldn't get him confused with our other slaves. I was thinking something along the lines of what mimes wear.

As for his coffee making abilities, I don't rightly know. He makes a mean taco, and does well under pressure. He remained completely calm while informing me that my oven was on fire.

When I first joined the forum Steve was on a cough syrup binge, and I just happened to know a fella who was addicted to Pertussin (narcotic cough syrup) so after I read through a couple of posts, I thought that was a sensible name. The "ms" is cuz I'm a lady person.

:p

Posted by: ms p at June 23, 2004 3:18 PM

Once Steve got stuck inside an invisible box and couldn't get oot. Good thing he had enuff cough syrup.

I had eggs and beans for breakfast.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 25, 2004 11:19 AM

Dude! Beans for breakfast?! Pinto? Black? Refried? Lima? Green? Waxed?

Don't forget to floss!

Posted by: ms p at June 28, 2004 6:36 AM

Pinquito beans, a local specialty. I like em spicy. Like my wimmen.

Wait, I like my coffee like my wimmen--strong and bitter.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 28, 2004 11:04 AM

Ha! Coffee, beans and wimmen -- one helluva burrito you're whipping up there Rev.

I'm a big bean fan myself.

Are they like pintos? And when I say pinto, I don't mean the pony.

We're getting dangerously close to 200...

Posted by: ms. p at June 28, 2004 11:10 AM

Pinquitos are a little round pink bean--a staple of Santa Maria style bbq. I can send ya some with some special Santa Maria seasoning if'n ya want. They go most excellently with good tortillas. Which I can also send you.

I believe they are decaffeinated, and possibly kosher (mmmm....Hebrew Nationals....).

My friend who is moving gave me her old Mr. Coffee; I'm test driving it now. I usually don't drink coffee in the afternoon, but I'm in the middle of housecleaning and need the lift.

Where the stuck is Feve? We need his whizdom aboot now. ;)

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at June 28, 2004 3:59 PM

Mooomm, Steve's being a dildo!

I had my coffee, and I'm off today, so I'm interspersing cleaning my kitchen and doing pushups...I did 300 yesterday, tho not all at once.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at July 13, 2004 10:02 AM

40. That's a rough one.

So I hear.

Have you picked out your present to yourself?

Posted by: ms p at July 13, 2004 1:43 PM

Yeah, I'm going to Ramona to see Poltz. Once I'm there, it's up to my admirers.

40 is the new 30. I'm growing older, but I refuse to grow up.

Does Jager mix with coffee?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at July 13, 2004 6:55 PM

Can 41 be the new 21? For cases of older than you arrested development please see:

Who am I kidding. I'm a huge fan of romance. Go with your heart Rev!

Posted by: ms p at July 22, 2004 7:13 AM

He was too wiped out financially and worn out physically from the burden of all those gold chains to invent anything. :-p

Besides, it's just a Mr. Coffee coffee machine that's taller so the tea pitcher will fit under it. I'm sure that would have been copyright infringement of some sort.

I don't think I know what Fizzies are.

do tell?

Posted by: ms p at July 26, 2004 5:53 PM

WHAAA?

You don't remember Fizzies?

Fizzies were like Alka-Seltzer for kids; cola, root beer, lemon-lime (and I think orange) flavored tablets that fizzed in water. Tho as I recall, it was fun to put a tab on one's tongue and let it foam away. I think they were discontinued cuz they contained cyclamates.

I guess that's why I'm an acid freek now.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at July 26, 2004 11:01 PM

Fizzies just weren't my thing. Now Pop Rocks I could hang with. Those and Pixy Stiks. And jello right out of the cupboard.

Unreconstituted jello is very similar to Pixy Sticks.

They were quite effervescent too.

"Effervescent"...you should command that word be used in a thread.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at July 27, 2004 10:59 AM

Command?! LOL!

Zotz? I remember Jots. Is this a Midwest vs. California thing?

Favorite childhood candy?

Mine was Red Twizzlers. Not cherry, I think they were purported to be strawberry, but really they're just red.

Effervescent.

Posted by: ms p at July 27, 2004 11:17 AM

Zotz were a hard candy with fizzy powder in the center. You could suck it or bite it, and it would effervesce in your mouth.


Why does that sound weird?


Red is my favorite flavor. And green.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at July 27, 2004 12:21 PM

I'm pretty sure I never experienced Zotz.

"William A. Mitchell, 92, a food scientist who invented Pop Rocks candy, died of congestive heart failure Monday in a Stockton care home.

Mitchell, who worked as a chemist for General Foods Corp. in White Plains, NY for 35 years until his retirement in 1976, held more than 70 patents, including inventions related to Cool Whip, quick-set Jell-O gelatin and the drink mix Tang.

Mitchell's most famous invention was Pop Rocks, the exploding candy that became a cultural phenomenon after it hit the market in 1975. He made the discovery accidentally when, while trying to design an instant soft drink, he put some sugar flavoring mixed with carbon dioxide in his mouth.

For years, Mitchell, who patented Pop Rocks in 1956, fought to dispel the myth that the carbonated candy was deadly if eaten while drinking carbonated drinks."

William A. Mitchell, we salute you!

It is a continuing conundrum. How can I remain fresh when I continue to ripen? There ain't no flies on me.

Nor on Frank.

Rev -- do you Freak n Geek?

Posted by: ms p at August 5, 2004 8:13 AM

My 'puter at home is refusing to work--I'm at the liberry now.

Freak n Geek? The ex-TV show or the dance move? Sadly, I missed oot on both, tho I've heard good things. I'm still waiting for The White Shadow to return to TV Land.

Oh yeah, I got a Bob Schneider cd the other day, as he seems to be quite the fave here. The first song mentions sugar boogers, no wonder. Good stuff so far, tho.

I try to keep flies off both the frank and the beans.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 5, 2004 10:39 AM

Get your ass up to the liberry counter and see if they have the Freak N Geeks tv series for loan. It's really really goot. Really. I wouldn't lie.

I like Schneider a bit. Although I liked him best on SNL -- his movies kind of suck.

Posted by: ms p at August 5, 2004 10:52 AM

"Rob Schneider is a carrot! Derp de derp de derpity derp!"

Just checked the liberry catalog for FNG--no go. Might hafta try Ballbuster Video.

I think pixy hates me.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalolt at August 5, 2004 11:09 AM

wha?! Pixy and hate do not belong in the same sentence. Why you say such nonsense?

Definitely check with the video stores -- it's worthy.

I was drinking Iced Coffee and Diet Coke simultaneously this morning, and yet I still feel like I need more. MORE! MOOOORREEE!

Posted by: ms p at August 5, 2004 11:45 AM

Hoody-doo! I'm at work now. My 'puter should be fixed so I can pick it up after werk.

I guess pixy don't hate me---just isn't madly in love, p'raps. I guess my tongue-in-the-ear greeting isn't a popular thing in Sandy Eggo County.

One more day, then 2 days off... I want a milkshake.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 6, 2004 12:04 PM

Hi p!

Headin oot to work in a few...7 days straight...good ting I like my job.

Gots tomorrow and Monday off tho, and that means just one thing...

laundry.

I have my pics back from my (my?) birthday shoe at Cheers. Will try to post em tonite.

I had coffee and toast w/p-nut butter for breakfast. I prefer Skippy Super Chunk. You?

I like jess. Think she'll go to the movies with me?

; )

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 7, 2004 8:57 AM

jess?! jess who? Did you guys meet?

I haven't had Skippy in years. I'm a Jif Crunchy fan myself.
:)

Posted by: ms p at August 8, 2004 1:30 PM

uh...the only jess on the board. No we haven't met, but she pm'd me, which I thought was nice.

Or is jess a guy? Oh well, still a nice person, tho I guess the movies are oot.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 8, 2004 3:27 PM

She's a girl, silly. :) And a damn fine looking one too. I don't know aboot the whole dating a forum member thing though.. there have been a few disasters.

:)

Posted by: ms p at August 8, 2004 5:47 PM

s.p. Where are the pictures?!?!

:)

Posted by: p ms. at August 8, 2004 6:00 PM

Don't sweat it; I ain't here to bag babes. T'ain't no good at it anyway. :)

s.p. (???): I pm'd you aboot the pictures.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 8, 2004 9:46 PM

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

I just re-reread this whole thread...classic literature at its finest!

We should write a newspaper column together!

Tea shades, mon.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 9, 2004 10:27 PM

What should we call our column? Will we be dispensing advice or just being wiseasses and using movie dialogue to further our cause?

I heard a story on NPR the other day that disturbed me. Did you know that much of Dance Hall music is homophobic? Not that I ever gave it a lot of thought, but it just seems wrong mon.

Posted by: ms p at August 10, 2004 4:27 AM

Well, you know them dance hall types...I think they protest a bit TOO much aboot the man-love, if ya know whut I mean.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 10, 2004 7:42 AM

I'm not sure what's worse, Beenie Man himself, or the fact that NPR gave the ignorant fuck free publicity by running that piece.
What kind of a dumb-ass name is Beenie Man, anyway?!

Posted by: NPRob at August 10, 2004 7:37 PM

Personally I think Beanie Man is a classic name. It tells you everything you need to know about the fella right up front. 1.) he digs beans 2.) he's male 3.) he's not a boy.

:)
We're getting precariously close to 300 guys. Will there be a parade when we hit the magic number?


Posted by: ms p at August 11, 2004 3:42 AM

A parade? Nah. Parades are boring.
But if you wanna run around topless, screaming "Woo-hoo!", with 300 written in permanent marker on your chest, with the 3 being in your upper cleavage and the 0s around your areolae...
That'd be cool!
:D

Rob?! Mike? Who the hell posted that.

:|

Posted by: ms p at August 11, 2004 9:57 AM

Twernt me.

Tho it would be cool.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 11, 2004 2:14 PM

I think Steve should post #300, making him believe that he has the last word, then surprise him with a big cake and a pot of coffee.

ssshhhh....

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 11, 2004 9:04 PM

Before I tell you who posted it, you have to tell me how you feel aboot the proposal. :D
Isn't it conveeeeeeenient that one can no longer mouse over the names & see the email addresses here?
Btw, the pictures still aren't here yet.
Wait... shit, umm... forget I said that.
:D:D

Posted by: Mr. E. Poster at August 11, 2004 10:17 PM

ROB! Insert spanking emotie here. :)
I WILL do as you suggested, however it will take place in the privacy of my home. Bill will likely think I've flipped my lid and have me committed. It's been nice knowing you guys.

:)

Roberto-That's NUTS! I mailed it last Wednesday? Thursday at the latest. The same day I mailed som to me Ma in MI. She got hers on Monday. Btw, I didn't send me Ma the same pics. ;)

Rev -- Your suggestion is duly noted. Now how long do you think it will take Poltz to find this thread?

Posted by: ms p at August 12, 2004 3:32 AM

HA! Poop on that Poltz dude -- I get to be #300!
Just be sure to tell Bill to take some pics of the momentous occasion before he hauls you off to the looney bin. And be sure he has my email address. ;)

I saw Collateral last night. It was 30 minutes too long and had plot holes you could drive my ass through. But at least Tom Cruise didn't suck.

Posted by: Frag at August 12, 2004 5:20 AM

Alert the media!!! Cruise didn't suck?!?

I think it's cute how Steve crushes on Cruise.

:D

Hey, as long as there's coffee and boobies!

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 12, 2004 7:37 PM

I'M not the one who claimed to only have one quirk. :-p I'll readily admit that I'm more damaged than the average board member. Well... maybe not the average. There are a couple who make that number skew kinda high.

Posted by: Frag at August 12, 2004 8:13 PM

I went to the Dr. this morning, and my blood pressure is still good...the pee pills are working!

mmmm...Triscuits for breakfast! It must be Tuesday!

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 17, 2004 8:42 AM

Hey p--I think it's working again!

I went oot for coffee this morning...think I'll go ootside and get some exercise in the warm California sun.

:0)

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 18, 2004 12:15 PM

We're back. But I'm still gone -- I think I'll take a walk outside now.. The summer sun's chasing away the gray and I'm happy now... It's a sunshine day!! Everybody's smiling! It's a sunshine day!!

Posted by: Boner Boy at August 18, 2004 10:33 PM

I had breakfast at IHOP this morning. Eggs, hash browns and hotscakes...good, basic, reasonably priced. But the coffee was rather weak; didn't quite do the job. I was tired all day.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 19, 2004 9:44 PM

I had two HUGE cups of super strong coffee. Kept me pumped all the live long day. :)

Are hotscakes better than hotcakes? Are they more hot?

Posted by: ms p at August 19, 2004 9:49 PM

Hotscakes are made in Hootersville. They are made by the very hot Mrs. Oliver Wendell Douglas.

I have tomorrow and Saturday off--I'm going to Santa Barbara tomorrow. I don't think they make hotscakes there. If they do, they have arugula and other very tiny leafy things on them.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 19, 2004 11:31 PM

Nothin goes better with coffee than a shot of Solarcaine. Keeps yer insides from burning.

"Hey Poltz! I need a 98 pounder!"

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 20, 2004 1:11 PM

A Saturday off!

Gotta give my friend Bill some money...Phone Bill, Gas Bill, Cable Bill, etc.

But I've had my coffee.

Yo, p!

Sup?

Word.

The Honorable Rev!

Hey there! Got back to work today and found my desk piled high with crap. Will have more time to play soon I'm sure. :)

Did you movie this weekend? Any new caffeine adventures to report? We barely left the house -- too busy watching some of the SCTV boxed set.

Soooo any chance of you flying east for a Living Room show?

Posted by: ms p at August 23, 2004 3:08 PM

p-diddy!

Yeah, I saw Maria Full of Grace---very intense, subtitles, unknowns acting, two snaps up...they'll prolly remake it with J-Ho or Hosie Perez.

SCTV?!?!?!!! DOOD!!! 5 Neat Guys, The Shmenge Bros (CABBAGE ROLLS AND COFFEE!), Edith Prickley, Tex & Edna Boil's Organ Emporium, The Fishin Musician, Sammy Maudlin, Bobby Bittman, Lola Heatherton, Count Floyd, Earl Camembert, Ed Grimley, Dr. Tongue's 3-D House of Stewardesses, Mrs. Falbo's Tiny Town, Farm Film Report, Bob n Doug, Perini Sclerosa, Guy Caballero...ah, memories!

I GOTS to get me a DVD player!

I'd love to go back to Virginny...my sister lived in Fairfax Co for awhile...alas, fundage is low--I work in one of those weeny helping people jobs that don't pay much.

Have the next 2 days off...woo-hoo! Can drink coffee at mey leisure!

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 23, 2004 7:01 PM

You absolutely have to get yourself a DVD player. Go to Wal-mart. The last one we picked up was only $42!

I understand aboot crap paying jobs. I live in Virginia. "Right to work state."

W H A T E V E R.

Enjoy your coffee!! I dare you to throw some Reese's Pieces in your coffee.


Posted by: ms p at August 25, 2004 7:43 AM

I don't have any Reece's Pieces. Will a spoonful of Skippy or Jif do?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 25, 2004 10:24 AM

I think that'd be splendid. I forgot to specify my peanut butter preference, and Bill bought me Peter Pan Creamy.

EWwwwwWWWwwwwww!

Posted by: ms p at August 25, 2004 11:06 AM

Hey p, I think it would be a hoot if I prank-called Steve in the middle of your LRC.

P, you and me against the world!

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 29, 2004 9:40 PM

I've decided to make today an all caffeine day. I'm starting with iced coffee and I'm making a half gallon of iced tea to take to work with me. I'll supplement the dinner hour with Red Bull and have an espresso to top off the evening.

It's a lofty goal, but I think I'm up to the challenge. If I'm still alive tomorrow, I'll post my findings.

What's in your wallet?

Posted by: ms p at August 30, 2004 4:20 AM

David Spade must die.

Posted by: Just Shoot Him at August 30, 2004 5:40 AM

You said, "What's in your wallet?" David Spade is now a whore for Capital One. If you have not seen that commercial, consider yourself blessed.

Posted by: Duh! at August 30, 2004 1:52 PM

Yeah, but "Joe Dirt" still rocks fairly consistantly. I think it's his only role that he ISN'T a fastidious little faygala.

I like vodka.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 30, 2004 2:51 PM

I like that commercial. :| I even kind of like David Spade. Have you seen his work on Eight Simple Rules? ;)

Fuck all y'all.

:D

I love vodka. And I really love Red Headed Sluts. Dare you to order one up next time yer oot at a pub...
Rob -- it's like one of your red pops but with alcohol! Yum!


Posted by: ms p at August 30, 2004 6:21 PM

a)I like David Spade about as much as I like it when I go commando and a stray pube gets caught in my zipper.
b)Don't make promises you're not going to keep, Dana! ;-)
c)I'm no slut, but if I'm red-headed, will you love me anyway? :-D
d)I just had a bottle of Big Red today. It was fab crab.

I'm going to be a bitch for Halloween. Or Julia Child.

Or a Cialis salesperson.

Or a Big Red Headed Slut.

I need more TEA!

Posted by: ms p at August 31, 2004 10:40 AM

So P-diddle, should I call ya when the LRC's goin on, or do you want to call me?

I'll be likkered and coffeed up.

I'll pretend I'm Hank Hill.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at August 31, 2004 6:57 PM

You'd better call us... I have a tendancy to be a spazz when the affair is going down. We're in the book. ;)

Posted by: ms p at September 1, 2004 3:30 AM

Kewl...is it listed under "Pertussin" or the hubby's name?

I love a tendency to spazz in a woman.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 1, 2004 3:30 PM

:D

I'm a modern woman. But I DID take my husbands name, in essence killing my branch of the family tree. However, since we're not breeding, we killed the hubsters branch too.

D'uh

I'll pm you. ;)


Posted by: ms p at September 1, 2004 3:39 PM

And since I brought up breeding -- holy hoo has! Alan Keyes has got some enormous king sized bowling balls.

I don't hate many, and I don't hate early, but DAMN that man can suck my left tit.

Posted by: ms p at September 1, 2004 6:30 PM

Alan Keyes is just proof that the Illinois Republican party is full of idiots, that they pay no attention to anything that happens outside of Chicago, AND that they have no idea how full of racist rednecks their state really is. To paraphrase my father: "Why do we need a n***** who's not even FROM here running for Senate?"

:rolleyes:

May I attend to the right one, please, Dana??? :-)

Posted by: Frag at September 2, 2004 7:09 AM

It's good to know you have an enlightened father Rob!! LOL!

and HEY! You're mighty fresh lately! :D

Posted by: ms p at September 2, 2004 7:56 AM

Yeah, he's about as enlightened as the state of Florida after a hurricane.

And well, you know... no one else is speaking to me any more, so... you catch the brunt of it. Sorry. :-p

Posted by: Frag at September 2, 2004 9:10 AM

Illinois Nazis.

I hate Illinois Nazis.

But I'm sure yer pop's otherwise ok.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 2, 2004 9:23 AM

No apologies necessary. It makes me laugh. Nada never flirts with me anymore.

:p

Posted by: ms p at September 2, 2004 9:52 AM

We went to the Philly Pizza Co. and ordered some hot tea.

The waitress said, "Well, no, we only have it iced."

So we jumped up on the table and shouted "Anarchy!"

And someone played a Beach Boys song on the juke box.

It was "California Dreamin'", and so we started screamin', on such a Winter's day.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 2, 2004 12:27 PM

How was your weekend Rev? Any exciting caffeine dreams to share?

Posted by: ms p at September 7, 2004 4:30 PM

Lots of caffeine in the Rum n cokes I consumed last nite. Good thing I'm off today.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 7, 2004 5:07 PM

Dude, you're off EVERY day. Who are you kidding? ;)
I think I OD'd on caffeine last night/this morning. My brain is still running circles around the inside of my head.
4 "Jet-Alert" (800 mg caffeine) + 4 Excedrin Tension Headache (incl. 260 mg caffeine) + 20 oz. Mountain Dew Code Red (?) = woo-hoo!!!

Posted by: Frag at September 8, 2004 9:27 AM

Frag, you forgot the Pop Rocks and Jolt Cola.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 8, 2004 7:36 PM

Hey suess!! That's altogether too much caffeine. Did yer heart ever resume its normal beat?

See Rob?! You DO do drugs. :)

Posted by: ms p at September 9, 2004 3:33 AM

Jolt tastes like shite. I'll stick to the Dew.

I crashed from the caffeine about the time I got to work yesterday afternoon. It felt like someone was sitting on my chest. And yet I'm still alive. Dammit.

Posted by: Frag at September 9, 2004 6:01 AM

I had Gardenburger Meatless Riblets for dinner last night. Surprisingly tasty!

Tho I don't think they needed to use the Popsicle sticks as a bone substitute.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 9, 2004 1:32 PM

Where the p are you, fuck?

Had my coffee...next up...LAUNDRY!!

Frag, my CPR cert expired...wish I could help ya oot.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 10, 2004 10:44 AM

I'm right here! Work's been busy and I've been uninspired. Although you'd think I could have found something to comment on when you mention a morningstar product. :)
I've never tried the riblets. I almost broke a tooth on "chicken" patty of theirs and have stuck with the fake versions of beef products since.

Do you iron?

Posted by: p ms at September 10, 2004 12:45 PM

Yes, I do iron.

However, my job does not require cloz that need ironing.

Therefore, the next time I iron will only be if I go to a wedding, a funeral, or on a date.

I have no idea where my iron is.

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 10, 2004 3:02 PM

I come down firmly on the side of not ironing. Kind of. I HATE to iron. There's no concrete reason for it, and I hate to be wrinkled... maybe I need to work through this.

What job doesn't require ironing?!

Posted by: ms p at September 11, 2004 4:04 AM

Coal miner
Grave digger

Naturally caffeinated. Uh, by that I mean that they act like their buzzin on coffee all the time, not that you can drink them.

Happy Anniversary!!! I'll send a HoneyBaked Ham! (that commercial was just on, that's why I mentioned it)

No puppy. :(

Did you have a nice weekend?

Posted by: ms p at September 21, 2004 9:51 AM

Yeah, purty good. My fantasy foobah team is 2-0. Good thing I've played sucky teams so far.

I just ate a big salad with bloo cheez crumbles and orange flavered cranberries. Yum. I hope that doesn't make me less manly in your eyes. I'll bag me a dead animal later.

No puppy? Bummer!

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 21, 2004 2:22 PM

I'm a veghead!! I love that you didn't kill nothing that breathes for your supper. :)

Actually, I'm a pescatarian and I jest ingested a piece of seafood pizza that was exquisite.

I don't eat anything that has a face. Except fish. Then I'm all over it! LOL!
Who's on your Fantasy Foosball team?

Wanna come?

Posted by: Rev. Spankalot at September 24, 2004 12:44 PM

What does one do in the desert?

Are there snakes? Scorpions? Restrooms with running water?

:D

Posted by: ms p at September 24, 2004 1:23 PM

In the daytime, we drink beer and splash around in the pool.

In the nighttime, we drink beer and tequila, splash around in the pool, sit on top of a dune to watch the mountains turn color, eat, drink, go on night hikes, listen to the coyotes howl, sing and dance, and drink.

Never have seen a snake there. Scorpions glow in the dark if ya flash a black light on em.

Full indoor lavatory facilities. Poolside shower for the daring. Nobody's daring.

Are we hoarding antibiotics again?

That doesn't sound half bad Rev! Hope you have a wonderful time and don't get attacked by any scorpions.

Hola Mr. Spankola
If you drink Cola you will surely live a long and healthy life.

Is it just me, or does the "comments" count fluctuate all the time?

I think I'm losing my card counting skills.

You're not imagining things, Dana. Well... at least not that. Someone apparently comes along once in a while and deletes those stOOpid spammers' comments. That rocks.

They're Pinky and The Brain
Yes, Pinky and The Brain
One is a genius;
The other's insane
They're laboratory mice
Their genes have been spliced
They're Pinky, they're Pinky and The Brain Brain Brain Brain.....

I feel like vomiting.

Hi P!

Long time no see...sorry I've been away, but I was hanging oot at the Starland Vocal Band board and the chicks there are really horny, or maybe I just seem extremely manly there in comparison.

PM me if you read this, if'n ya want.

Hugs,
Rev
