Full moon


Cheshire East Council is making some old dude get rid of his mooning gnome. It’s on public land and it’s a menace to traffic.

I know. Lame. I got home late tonight and spent my disposable time cleaning out the fridge. Trust me when I tell you I spend as little time as possible doing anything resembling housework, but I accidentally trip over a chore now and again.

Escuse me while I take a long hot bath in an Epsom salt and lavender soak and try to regain my composure.

Uncle B cleaned out the freezer and found a frozen Gordon’s gin daquiri thingie. That should help.

There should be a lightbulb in that thing; that blinks on and off at night.

You’ve got both my sympathy and empathy on the housework battles, Stoatie. But seeing these two words next to each other made me shudder uncontrollably: gin daiquiri. I like gin, and I like daiquiris. I also like peanut butter, and I like caviar – but I don’t want them both on the same bit of toast!

O/T – When I made the above comment I sloppily hit the “Preview” button instead of “Post”. Everything worked OK, but this message appeared above the “Comments” section separator line:

Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/public_html/sweasel.com/wp-content/plugins/filosofo-comments-preview/filosofo-comments-preview.php on line 319

This isn’t a gripe, and not even a real trouble report. To repeat, everything worked just fine except for the appearance of the odd warning message.

You should read some of the language in the “official communication” at the link. All about “intent” and “distraction leading to an accident” with each busybody bolstering the other.

Probably a plugin needs updating, Uncle Al. I’ve been bad about that. And ‘daquiri’ was a description of the texture, not the contents. I believe it’s gin, elderflower and apple.

Skandia — confirmed: bums light up at night. There are two.

Why not fashion a pair of underwear, pants, or better yet, a skirt to cover up the moon? With a skirt if they object, you can call them transphobic haters.

I think that what they objected to was the saucy pose combined with the glowing buttocks. Covering the latter with a fanciful pair of painted-on fruit-of-the-looms (because the pants are already clearly down around thigh-level) would only ameliorate approximately 20% of their total “Houston, we have a problem” status, I am thinking.

For purposes of competitive analysis I rank the issues as follows: (1) glowing – 29%; (2) double-take factor – 27%; (3) saucy pose – 24%; (4) buttocks – 20%.

And I don’t know English property law very well, but it is their land. Whether this possession accrues under devolved rights of scutage, flotage, or the Royal Fish, I’m not sure.

How’s about a nice Union Jack tat across that empty real estate?

How about covering his butt with a sign that says “buttocks”.

I see since he helped transform the council property from a wasteland to something attractive he has invoked the “no good deed shall go unpunished” ordinance.

Perhaps they’d prefer a cut out of Kim Kardashian – my reading of the Daily Mail indicates the UK has a fixation with her all in it’s own timezone butt.

The DM has eased off on the Kartrashian articles but there was a time when it was not uncommon for their front page to have 26-30 articles/links.

That ain’t nothin’ this is the view the entire south side of Birmingham (Alabama)gets every day.

(oooo! you have a website?)

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.
