I was lurking in the DFO Slack chats the other day, as one does when home sick, when a discussion broke out about when one’s own child hears parents arguing. What do you say to someone so precious to the both of you in the heat of a moment when you almost want to kill the other person? Pithy missives were passed back & forth, with much snickering, when SonOfSpam dropped the banner pic nugget into the conversation and mic dropped the whole discussion.

I was bored, so I thought, ‘Y’know – adding a picture would really up the humour’, as if I’m a comedy writer or something. (Ron Howard voice: “he is not.”) After about 20 minutes, I was quite happy with the result.

So it got me to thinking – how would some of the banner quotes look when supplied equally suitable stock photos as backdrops? So I went through last week’s voting results and added some images to the daily winners.

Day 1:

Day 3:

Day 5:

Okay, I may have gone too far.


Tonight’s sports:

  • AAF:
    • San Antonio at Arizona – 8:00PM | NFLN
  • NHL:
    • Jets at Capitals – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
    • Bruins at Penguins – 7:30PM | NBCSN
    • Vegas at Calgary – 9:30PM | Sportsnet1

  • NCAA:
    • Women’s Championship Tournaments:
      • Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament – 6:00PM | ESPN2
      • Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament – 8:00PM | ESPN2

Don’t forget – free agency unofficially starts Monday, when agents can contact players to discuss terms. WHO WILL SIGN CODY PARKEY?!

Here’s a P&W J-58 engine, used in the SR-71 Blackbird.

The girl formerly known as tWLS and I are over.
For good now it seems, I’m sad to say.

Meh, if after 3.5 weeks she won’t commit enough to even tell me she wants to at least TRY to fix it (knowing we might not, admittedly) then I can’t stick.

Later tater.

Woo!

You know when life has caught up with you? It’s when your mom is living with you and she asks you to make a book order for your brother, who is serving double life for murder, and you do it. While simultaneously arguing with the girl who you thought was your future happiness, by text message.

Yes, I swear to God this was my evening tonight. I am not lying and I am not exaggerating.

Time to either load the pistol or move to California for legal weed.

Redshirt

I’ll pray for you, tWBS.

If you believe in God, He wouldn’t give you something you can’t handle.
If you don’t believe, consider faking your death and move to CA for the weed.

theeWeeBabySeamus

God never gives you anything you can’t handle.
Until he does.

Don’t bury the lede…what was the book?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Books….plural.
My brother ruined my entire family, yet I still have to buy him books every month.

Tried to kill him in prison about two years ago.

blaxabbath

Like — you tried to kill him in prison?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Yup, had my hands around his throat during a visit.

Still can’t believe they didn’t charge me.

theeWeeBabySeamus

They didn’t rough me up either, which was nice.
Just pulled me off of him.

For what it’s worth, he probably gets that a lot.

I wish someone would go ahead and finish the job then.

Redshirt

Here’s an idea. Ignore him. Cut the tie. If he’s doing nothing to help your family or nothing to help himself and dragging the family down, consider him dead to you. Not literally, of course.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Oh trust me, he’s dead to me.

I do this for my mother, not him.

/checks calendar.

Two weeks!

I sat down to eat and actually said “FUCK OFF!” Then I went outside to see if any of my neighbors were walking their dogs or something because I really wanted to share.

The bros will get fed later this evening, don’t worry.

Goddamn! I said “GODDAMN!”

I’m a new dad, I ain’t talking on such an ordeal. That said, I think i’d like to try buying some fresh pasta to see how much better a meal would be with it.

yeah right

Try a semolina pasta first. Simple in ingredients a challenge with the kneading but the final product is toothsome, hearty and when you get it right is very, very satisfying.

It would not surprise you one bit that I owned that tshirt, right?

SonOfSpam

Awesome. Very glad to hear that!

I believe that.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Wait, is that quote from the perspective of the pole? Like, the pole is pointing out that its job is to support the weight of single moms who work as pole dancers?

Gratliff

It works in many ways. That’s what makes it art.

ballsofsteelandfury

The unknown beauty of the single mom is that she has another human being to take out her frustrations on and to blame for stuff. If you handle it right, you’re always the good guy and reap the benefits.

And if you can make it so the relationship with son/ daughter is fixed, oooh the appreciation you’ll get!

SonOfSpam

This seems like the topic paragraph of a Masters thesis.

Damn, Hacksaw Ridge is a good movie. It was on in the background. Now I’m pulled in.

2016: Too many Republicans run for President, diluting the electorate so the majority is the extreme end of the party, dooming the party to go American Nazi.

Facing the wrong way…

Gratliff

Unless Steve King is suddenly announcing himself for the Democratic primary, you’re gonna have trouble convincing me this comparison is being made in good faith.

Redshirt

Well the first part at least. I’m just being the Voice of Caution. No one thought my side thought Trump would even win a primary, and now my party is sucking at Trump’s teat.

Gratliff

We’re only gonna get two kinds of wacky in the Dem primary, and that’s whatever very bad shit Joe Biden’s brain forgets to filter out before he says it and idiotic capitalism robots like Schultz who put making billionaires a protected class in his platform. Harris and Warren are probably the front-runners. Harris’ justice credentials are gonna be more palatable to the centrist types, while Warren is gonna end up endorsed by Sanders before long and end up the more leftist option. It’ll be interesting to see where the party truly stands from that point forward. That being said, whoever wins from the Dem side, there won’t be anything near as terrifying as the rise of white nationalist groups that we’ve seen the past 2 years. Conservative media likes to act as though a Bernie win would be immediately followed by a guillotine rolling up to Wall Street. It equates moving tax rates to more traditional levels and expanding social services with the rise of hate groups and systematic dismantling of everyone that isn’t wealthy that we’ve witnessed the past 2 years.

Redshirt

If you get a Moderate Democrat that Independents and Moderate Republicans like me who can stomach vote for, the path to the White house is all but clear.

If you get a Left Democrat that will keep Moderate Republicans like me home on Election Day, you can still win, but it will not be easy. I’ll still probably vote, but you won’t get a lot of people like me.

ballsofsteelandfury

As an Independent, nobody in the Democratic field so far appeals to me. Harris is from California and I’m familiar with her policies and I’m still not impressed.

I honestly think we’re in for another four years of The Cheeto unless he can be arrested and barred from running.

For military and those who follow a 24-hour system of time, the celebration will occur at night at 25:00:00.
