The Post of the Day — Aug. 6, 2013
Note from Dan: Blog regular Wayne Goodman posted the mini-screed below on the Monday OPEN thread. Meanwhile, J.M. White and I are conspiring to form the 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, Virginia Amateur Chemists League, with an eye toward getting our own booth at the next Steppin’ Out — and raffling off a meth lab.
“I feel obligated to express my sincere thanks to some of the participants in Dan’s blog for the very entertaining weekend. My TV was on the fritz and I was unable to watch the Comedy Channel for a couple of days but fortunately Dan’s blog came to the rescue.
The insanely outrageous posts from pammala, James Swingle, awood, Leon, etc., with a little imagination, were almost as good as watching Saturday Nighbt Live or the Daily Show for the ridicule they managed to rain down on the heads of the lunatic fringe. They kept me chuckling in amazement throughout the weekend.
And almost as funny was imagining the physical contortions of John Wilburn and Dave Hicks as they bent themselves into pretzel-like shapes so they could pat themselves on the back for managing to fleece the rednecks from the counties surrounding Blacksburg with their unholy gun raffle. And of course they did this while at least tacitly defending Philip Van Cleave, the most paranoid of the many gun apostles for his insensitive remarks and while rubbing their precious Glock in the faces of the folks at Virginia Tech, who will long remember what that weapon accomplished on 4/16.
I can just imagine Jon Stewart demolishing Van Cleave once again for his unconscious buffoonery. And of course the comedy would not have been complete without Frank (aka Gomer Pyle) who was largely missing throughout the weekend, riding in on his jackass at the last minute with another of his thousand-plus Hillary posts.
He then added to that another post citing the same link that had already been posted FIVE times by raving gunners and pretended it was something fresh that NOBODY was able to discover except good ole Gom(er Frank). All in all this crew managed to keep me in stitches throughout most of the weekend before I got my TV back on Monday morning and could watch a real episode of the Andy Griffith Show instead of the blog’s cheap imitation.
So thanks again guys. You’re not quite in the class of the good stand up comedians. But most of the time, you (sadly) are funny as hell.”
