Of course, there’s always the comfort of a gentlemen’s club.

Oh yeah, it’s March 1st! Super Tuesday!! Time to rock out with your caucus out!!!

Eleven states with 25% of the available delegates are choosing their party’s nominee tonight. If you live in one of those states, you might as well give up on network television, because that shit’s getting preempted. That means unless you DVR’d “The Walking Dead“, or the return of Spike’s “Tattoo Tuesday” inks your sleeve, sports will be the only escape from tonight’s non-stop onslaught of farts, facts & factoids sure to hit the broadcast airwaves starting aboot 8:00 EST. If Peter King was a political reporter, or even just a competent journalist, you know he’d be camped out in Wichita Falls hunting for nuggets.

Escape with me into the world of sports. The games of note: (all times Eastern)

NHL:
–   Penguins at Capitals – 7:30
–   Stars at Predators – 8:00
–   Islanders at Canucks – 10:00
NBA:
–   Bulls vs Heat – 7:30
–   Hawks vs Warriors – 10:30
NCAA:
–   #4 Virginia at Clemson – 7:00
–   #19 Baylor at #6 Oklahoma – 8:00
–   #12 Indiana at #16 Iowa – 9:00
–   Fuck Duke

Your project for this evening, should you choose to accept it, is to post your favourite political rants & comedy bits below, along with a brief explanation about why they are such. The jukebox open threads have shown the DFO Commentists to be nicely varied in terms of musical tastes, so we should also figure out what else warps shapes our perspectives.

When I was a kid, in the 1970s, I’d sign Bill Cosby records out of the library and listen to them at home on repeat. Growing up Bible-camp Christian, it was what I was allowed because he was considered a “good man”, and Richard Pryor & Steve Martin were “drug fiends”. Oops. In my teenaged years, it was Dennis Miller (on “Weekend Update”) and Sam Kinison, because they told the same joke from different extremes. Today, I quite enjoy Lewis Black, because – like Dennis Miller – his jokes are well-crafted treatises, and – like Sam Kinison – his energy gives them an immediacy. Plus, like me, he’s full of self-loathing and hates almost everything.

Oh, and Ron Funches just makes me giggle.

You have your assignment. WORK FOR MY LOVE!

It seems that you can explore Instagram without an account on this site: http://websta.me/

The stupidity of “technical,” Instagram non-nudity is mind-boggling.

“Apparently 80s undies are too much for Instagram so here’s the “censored” version”

As we have proven, Playboy’s new gimmick of going the non-nude instagram route makes zero sense.

I haven’t used iconosquare in a while. They make it a lot easier to grab the photo URL to link elsewhere or just to download. But I grabbed the URLs for all of these posts while screwing around on my phone.

The good thing about tailored Instagram explore page is that it gives me a ton of models. Although my brother jokes now that all the site has become is sponsored model shots and screenshots of memes. He’s not wrong. Luckily, you can tell it you want to see less of a type of post, but that’s only so effective. The fact remains that it is undoubtedly clear that it is a Facebook product.

Anyway,

Yes. It’s a photo I saw this morning while I was bored and wandering through random photos.

How did you get the instagram post to show up here? I thought they didn’t work here or any site, really

You can grab a post’s URL, and then I can grab the photo URL by going into developer mode on my browser.

Oh, it’s the Explore tab on the app.

Or you can go here, which is a third-party site using their API. http://iconosquare.com/viewer.php#/popular/

Yes sweetheart, of course. Five in dark black and five in a slightly darker black. Whatever you want.

Sorry sweetheart, I think I stretched that one beyond repair. I guess you’re now short one of the slightly darker black one.

Yes, sweetheart. I was thinking the same thing.

Why yes, sweetheart. I think the scant clothes, if I may call them that, which you made from the tablecloth look quite fetching. Of course, now my table is going to have stains and water rings but, whatever you want.
And yes, the clear plastic raincoat is a good idea. Yes…almost there….
