So, this guy died today. Joe Alaskey. He voiced Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and Sylvester.

If you’re thinking he looks too young for that and who the heck is he anyway, you’re quite right — he’s one of the voice actors who took over after Mel Blanc died in ’89. Alaskey himself was a comparatively young 63.

So. Non-story really. Condolences to his family.

Sorry I’ve been avoiding politics lately. I have a good excuse: I’ve been avoiding politics lately.

It’s gotten to the point I’m considering shaving my head and joining a hard-ass religious cult of some kind. Preferably one with a savage deity and a martial arts component.

Anyone want to start one…?

A lot of people younger than me are dying.
Should I be concerned?

I’m down but I prefer a mohawk. Can we get face tattoos and file our teeth like the Maori?

Just stay away from the kool-aid in the punch bowl.

I’m up for a new church. I’m considering:

Uncle Al’s Church
of Don’t Mess With Us
Or Our God Will Thump You

Perhaps we can finance things based on the work of Mr. Ponzi?

I’d join the First Church of the Blessed Weasel, but only if I can wear a cool monks robe or sumpin and carry a big stick or bludgeon. I assume drinking will be involved?

I think we should also paint ourselves blue like in Braveheart…

Ooooh, Savage Deity would make a good name for a rock band.

Might want to look at Chthulhu Devotion – not yet fully-enabled, p’raps.

Don’t say you weren’t duly warned, though…

“Savage deity”, indeed – “martial arts component”, OTOH, might be seen as optional, though it would seem (to me, at least) to be advisable. YMMV, as always.

Hm. I think Cthulhu might be slightly more…evil than I’m looking for. I was thinking more along the lines of…I dunno. Crom, maybe? You know, Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women. Like that.

I’m thinking of a cross between Huitzilipocthti-worship and Shao Lin.

That way, we’ll look really cool when we pull the hearts of our enemies out while still beating.

I want to uptwinkle this whole thread

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
