Throw another shrimp on the barbie?

Sounds like a fun gathering in Australia - from The Epoch Times:

Thousands of Meat Lovers Plan Mass BBQ At House Of Vegan Who Sued Neighbors For Cooking Meat
Thousands of meat-eaters are planning to attend a mass barbecue outside the home of a vegan woman who had sued her neighbors over a series of perceived provocations—most notably the odor of meat and fish sizzling on their backyard grill.

“This is the Aussie version of ‘storm area 51’ and she can’t sue all of us!” wrote one of the commenters in a Facebook community event headlined “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden,” which over 3,300 people have said they plan to take part in, while over 8,000 have said they are “interested” in coming.

Carden told 9News that she had taken her fight against neighbor Toan Vu and his family all the way to the Supreme Court of Western Australia, demanding they put a stop to a range of behaviors in their backyard that she finds upsetting—including children playing and meat cooking on the barbecue.

The massage therapist said her neighbors have spoiled her ability to enjoy her backyard in the suburb of Girrawheen by intentionally letting their barbecue meat and fish smells waft into her yard.

A bit more:

Likely adding to Carden’s distress is the prospect of the event, which is due to take place on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 3 p.m., with one member of the online community suggesting they go “full Ron Swanson and slaughter a live pig on site,” while another chimed in with “oh yes and some cigars, yes every neighbour loves the smell of pungent cigars wafting into their airspace.”

Heh - Ron Swanson is one of my spirit animals. Sounds like a delightful party. Also sounds like an asshole neighbor. The Vu's would have probably been very happy to toss a slice of zucchini on their grill, pop open a Fosters, and laugh about various dietary foibles but Ms. Carden decided that she would control them and lawyer up. Stupid little tyrant.

From Terrierman's Daily Dose (a daily read for me):


President Trump is pulling out all the stops for his 4th celebration. From the Babylon Bee, July 3rd, 2019:

Imperial AT-ATs Begin Arriving In Capital For Military Parade
Ahead of Trump's planned July 4 military parade, several dozen Imperial walkers began to arrive in Washington throughout the week.

The AT-ATs were dropped off by U.S. Space Force Star Destroyers just outside the city and then slowly marched toward the capital (rather than being dropped right next to their target, for some reason). Military bands solemnly played the Imperial March in honor of their arrival. Trump was seen at the White House, pointing excitedly at the looming all-terrain armored transports through an Oval Office window.

"Wow, look at those guys!" he said while gleefully clapping his hands. "Do you think President Xi has any of those? I bet he doesn't. Ha! Guy is probably sooooo jealous right now. And North Korea only has those little chicken walkers! This is definitely the best military parade on the planet!"


The Bee is a satire website.

Poor T. Rex.

Joke of the day

From Grouchy Old Cripple:

An assistant to Nancy Pelosi told her she had a fantastic dream last night. “There was a humongous parade in Washington celebrating Pelosi. Millions lined the parade route, cheering when Nancy went past. Bands were playing; children were throwing confetti into the air; there were balloons everywhere. It was the biggest celebration Washington had ever seen.”

Nancy was very impressed and said, “That’s really great! By the way, how did I look in your dream? Was my hair okay?”

Her assistant said, “I couldn’t tell, the casket was closed.

Skating Under The Ice

One of my favorite websites is run by Willis Eschenbach - he writes a lot about climate science but he has also lived an amazing life and is a top story-teller. Website: Skating Under The Ice and his about page: About This Site

Over the last few days, he has been serializing an account of his delivering a sailboat from Hong Kong to California.

Here is what he has posted so far:

I Am Invited Overseas
Back in 1976, when I was about 30, a wealthy friend of mine made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I was to fly to Hong Kong, where I’d be the First Mate on a sailboat he’d bought and wanted to be delivered back to the US. I’ve done a variety of boat deliveries, they’re always good fun. I wrote about another boat delivery in several parts here, Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4, and Part 5. So I said sure, I’ll deliver a sailboat, no problemo.

Here are the stories - some wonderful writing and a great adventure:

And Willis is just warming up to the story - check back every day or so. He is a wonderful writer.

Epic PWNage - the Trump 404 page

When you mistype a URL for a web page and there is nothing there on the server, the server will respond by displaying what is called a 404 page letting you know that there was nothing to be found there and that your URL is probably wrong.

President Trump's 404 is hilarious - here is the direct link to it.

A new Press Secretary

| No Comments

From the Babylon Bee:

Trump Picks Alex Jones As New Press Secretary
Confirming the widespread rumors that Sean Spicer would be departing the office in short order, President Donald Trump has chosen InfoWars chief and renowned conspiracy theorist Alex Jones as the new Press Secretary, the White House announced Tuesday.

The fiery Jones wasted no time getting in front of the cameras, holding his inaugural press conference shortly after the announcement.

“I am the new Press Secretary!” he bellowed in his distinct Texas growl at all the reporters present, occasionally taking a handkerchief out of his pocket to dab perspiration from his red face. “AAAAAaaaaaaAAAAAAHHHHH!” he continued, beating his chest like a gorilla.

“We’re comin’ for ya globalists! 1776 will commence, you wicked, wicked devils!” he added, before mumbling something about gay frogs.

Needless to say, the Babylon Bee is a satire site. Sure would be fun to see heads pop if this were true but glad it is not - Jones is a conspiracy theorist of the first order.
