Your “Warning: The Creep Door is Closing Fast” Saturday Morning/Afternoon Open Thread

Soooo. As a recent convert to soccer I’m quite grateful that the enormous “nothing sporty to watch” gulf between March Madness and exhibition NFL action has been considerably shortened. This here is one of the last days we can eyeball some girlies and guys and make witty or crude (why not both?) observations about them. So off we go, To The Games!

England/Sweden:

Lucy Bronze vs. Stina Blackstenius-this is what the game boils down to. Destiny would seem to favor the Angleterrian’s Bronze (I mean, it’s right there for the taking ) but I’m on the side of the brave Sverge youngster that had the courage to have two esses in her name but did not place them alongside each other. Win or lose, “Ole Blackie’ is headed back to her job as a tutor at Hogwarts because what else could she do? England adopted a new mascot after the game against the Americans and Miss(ed) Opportunities will be cheering loudly from the sidelines. “COME FOR THE CURVACEOUS BUTTOCKS! STAY FOR THE SWEATY NIPPLES! The game starts at 11am EST.

What’s next. Ahhhh….

Argentina/Chile:

I watched a brief ‘history of Chile’ vid on the youtube so I could make up a cheeky joke but guess what? Nothing stuck. Might have to get tested for dementia. (or is that re-tested? Not sure… ) Several typers have been throwing shade in Messi’s direction but I’ve not seen him enough to care/understand. As stated previously, if I ain’t know much about the teams involved I’ll go underdog so I’m hoping manager Rueda cooks up some award-winning Chile. (the secret ingredient is a touch of nutmeg, dark chocolate, instant coffee, a rind of parmesan, an infant’s baby toe, a splash of Guinness, a puppy’s eyeball, a jigger of rhino spit, a pinch of dryer lint, a half dram of knee sweat, etc., etc.,) I could go on but I won’t.

Also out there is tennis, golf, beesball and your very own adventures-should you wish to share.

Just have at it. It’s all yours.

Buddy got perma-suspended for the following tweet in reply to a joke about Matt Damon being a racist in Good Will hunting:

https://mobile.twitter.com/BuddyHalftime69/status/1140823886784806912

It was deemed a ‘credible threat’ upon appeal and my account is gone. Well it was a fun 4 weeks!

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

“This Tweet is unavailable” does sound like much of a credible threat to me…

Never change.

King Hippo

you just keep bring the credible threats HERE, by gum!

Horatio Cornblower

I got banned for making a similar threat, although to anyone with more than a 3rd grade reading comprehension ability it was clearly a joke.

I just made a new account.

tWBS got perma-suspended from twitter too.
By himself.

This Sousa / Evans match at Wimbledon is a blast. I haven’t seen such a protracted battle for supremacy between the English and the Portuguese since the 16th century when both their navies kept building bigger and bigger ships so they could transport more, uh, allspice*.

*according both countries’ maritime museums.

“This is all the spice you brought back from the West Indies? I should have you drawn and quartered!”
“No no, see uhh, I thought you said ‘bring back allspice,’ so I did. This is allspice. It’s new.”

Shoulda had “Old Bay”.

So, I’ve been binge-ing Kim’s Convenience on Netflix and I just told one of my best friends to give me “the deets” for his father’s funeral.

I blame Shannon.

She is the funniest woman on television right now and I will fight* anyone who says otherwise.

I am neither a gun nut, nor an advocate for completely banning guns. Or at least I wasn’t.
But this shit is fucking ridiculous. The first six months of 2019….only six months…

“If you ban guns, the bad guys will still get them and commit crimes. After all, murder is illegal and people still do it. It’s a mental health problem! But no, we’re not going to fund mental health programs. And by the way we’re making abortion illegal, that way no one will do it!”

theeWeeBabySeamus

It’s a mental health problem!

I totally agree with this. Have been saying it for years.

Messi just got a red card!

Of course I switched games and missed this. That being said the African Euros game is real good.

Have you ever had a day when you woke up and thought, wow yesterday sucked.

And then as today went on you realize, I didn’t think it was possible but wow today sucks moar??????

And for some reason, AMC is running “Footloose” right now.
That doesn’t help.

Found some of BC Dick’s strong THC butter. Thought that I didn’t have any left. Kid and wife are asleep, time to make cookies.

This house is going to reek when they wake up, maybe I should microwave some fish.

Like the sex act.

Make sure to eat way more than recommended. Also, I want one.

litre_cola

I will bring some in 2 weeks when we are out there. Made 2 dozen.

BC Dick

Swell. Just swell. The uncles will be happy with those, too.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Microwave some fish sounds like a euphemism. Just saying.

did someone order Extra Afrikan Bananacakes??

I would order those, with maple syrup

I may have to demand them at IHOP, unless they wants to take that “I” down

Tomorrow, I have Atomic Dustbin 2, Murrika nil

King Hippo

Afrikan Bananacakes!! The Indomitable side scores 2 in the final 5′ of the half.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I really like that Kawhi is coming to the Clippers. It really balances the scales in the West nicely.

yeah right

Not to mention it shuts up those yammering Lakers fans. Christ, it was getting insufferable.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I’m a lot softer on the Lakers now that they have LeBron, because I think very highly of him as a human being (particularly in comparison to Kobe Bryant).

Horatio Cornblower

The lowest of low bars.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Kurt Rambis agrees. He can’t see you, but he is nodding…. probably.

King Hippo

NEW RULE! There should be an extra sub allowed, and no extra time in 3rd place tilts.

Re: Scotchy’s question:
While the three tourneys end tomorrow, the club fútbol starts again in August and we’ll have plenty of club friendlies in July to tide us over.

King Hippo

Friendlies suck, though. I will almost be desperate enough to pay attention to MLS.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

They need to give them better names, like “Grudgies” or something.

King Hippo

Repressed emotions?

Uh hello? How much you been makin on the CPL?

Popeyes?

Zaxby’s

yeah right

Probably gonna go Popeyes but Original Recipe ain’t too shabby. The closest Church’s is next to the stadium and that’s a bit too far.

theeWeeBabySeamus

What? No Bojangles fans in the audience?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

It’s funny cause I actually have about 4 lbs of chicken thighs that I was trying to figure out what to do with.

However, I also have a cholesterol report that says I should probably consume less trans fats.

yeah right

Given the choice and cost is not an issue I’ll go Willie Mae’s Scotch House in New Orleans.

King Hippo

I had Sverge 1-nil in the bronze match, apparently that is somehow worth 173 pts with the current scoreline

Super Eagles! Indomitable Lions!! WHO YA GOT??

/am angry at my NGA for not playing Everton prospect Henry Onyekuru, I wanted to see him, plus he needs caps so we can get his work permit settled (and what a bunch of racist shite that is from the UK)

King Hippo

5 added minutes seems excessive for a meaningless fixture.

yeah right

Rind of parmesan is a secret gateway directly to umami.

litre_cola

I have mine frozen to make a soup base at a later date. Tell me how you use them good sir!

BC Dick

Rind of Parmesan is what I’d name my brothel.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Grind of Parmesan is a good name for a nightclub on the Jersey Shore.

BC Dick

Mind of Parmesan is Gene Parmesan’s memoir

BC Dick

Kind of Parmesan is a documentary about the counterfeit cheese trade. I’m here all week, folks.

I think you just described several of the secret ingredients in mole.
