Expect a lot of hand wringing (with an abundance of crocodile tears) over the passing of that old harridan.

1. an ugly old woman, especially a vicious or malicious one.
2. a witch or sorceress.

Decisions, decisions…

An eye for an eye, a dick for a dick…
Congratulations, Wannabe.
You’ll have more dick than Hel(l)en ever had.

Proverbs 11:10 (ESV)

When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices,
and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness.

(they left out the part about winning dick, but it’s still true)

Freight elevator, nothing, SV. For that old crone, it’s a sewage pipe.

Decisions, decisions…

Use both, mojo. At the same time.

We are now 2 for 2 (not counting all the ones we lost…) thanks to JoePa and Helen. Our dead pool karma strategy: only pick people we won’t miss (which is a nice way of saying, people we want to die!). While it limits our choices (but not as much as you might think!), it does fit in with this quote from “Office Space”:

Tom Smykowski – “Just remember, if you hang in there long enough, good things can happen in this world. I mean, look at me.”

PS – If we have any say in our Weasel drawing virtual dick, how about something from the “I’m a girl weasel” theme for our three years old daughter, please.

Congrats, Wannabe! I wonder what Helen’s 72 virgins look like? She certainly did enough jihad for allah to give her a demon or 6 dozen to torment.

Congrats weaselwannabe! But I can’t help feeling sorry for guillibleprat, who I am fairly certain nailed Nelson Mandella’s demise.

The RNC posted a goodwill wish to Mandela on FB t’other day and certainly got their ears pinned back by the responses.

Aye, ’tis sad, indeed…

Why, just think, had Li’l Barky had a wicked, corpulent step-granny, she’d’ve looked just like Red Helen…

I accessed the records of this individual from your governemnt computers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Sharpton

Hypertension, leaking valve gout and impaired lung function. I think he might get sick soon.

Dame Helen, gone to her reward. One of a select few whose outward appearance almost perfectly matched the ugliness of her soul.

Ya know …??? This kind of death just makes you wonder about Souls Reconciling with their Maker(s) and what happens to Good and Bad People. Er-uhm. This woman was an outspoken, mean-speaking Reporter who certainly lived long enough to have learned some Wisdom in her long life. Did it work? Does she have the Answer now? I hope so. For her sake.

She’s the sort of person that makes one there’s an actual Hell.

Wannabe, can you drop me a note with your address? I save all correspondence with winners (in a folder called “dicks”, natch), but people don’t always think to put their username in the subject line.

…I’m trying to find a way to post about this that isn’t gloating, cruel, or satirical. I can’t think of any.

ZOMG, ZOMG…I thought I would try posting a couple of pages from my sketchbook to Imgur, and I made the front page.

Shit. I should’ve waited until I had a gallery to point people to.

And before anyone gets stuck in, Imgur is one of the biggest tarbabies on the internet. As bad as Cheezburger but about a tenth as amusing.

Splendid! I was thinking a few weeks ago, wondering if you were ever going to show us some drawings from your live model class.

Yes, rubble, sink holes, idiot people running around in fear …. Reckon we’ll get a 7.6 near Wellington … that’ll make it 2 cities destroyed in 2 years … and then smaller cities like Blenheim and Nelson will get toasted too!

Sort of a NZ City Dead Pool.
You have Detroit – we have Christchurch!

You can do it, Kate! Poop out that royal shit!

So, now the big questions is: is it going to be a poncy, inbred fuckwit like Chuck, or a (resonably) functional man like his sons?

From the Imgur comments:

Somebody commented about the phone number in the margin…hope it is somebody who can take a joke.

Also, that’s a man, baby.

I know, Pups. I should have ‘shopped that out. I have no idea what those numbers are, but I think they might be moving firms. Notice there’s one American and one British number.

If I could draw like that I’d sit about all day and draw like that. Sadly, I cannot, and it doesn’t look like I will win the dick in time for a wedding dick by Stoaty, so I must steal her art.

Happy new king day, all you Britons!
