WTF, Huck and Chuck?

Hey, kids!! I bet you all watched with rapt fascination the goings-on in Iowa yesterday. I know that I couldn’t tear myself away from the tv set! No, really, I couldn’t. Damn Superglue! Last time I ever try repairing a knickknack and changing the channels at the same time. Anyhoo, did you catch the Scabby McHuckleberry acceptance speech? Dont’cha just love it when the candidate surrounds himself with the people who love him the most and whom he most loves? There was Scabby making his speech, and just like Nancy looked lovingly at Ronnie, the love of Scabby’s life beamed at him in his moment of glory….
No, not Janet!
Though didn’t she did look lovely on camera with her lovely suit straight off the haute coutere rack at Walmart?
This is who I’m talkin’ about!

Original DVD cover.
Does anyone else find all of this a little bit creepy? I am beginning to think Mrs. Norris does.

And who can blame the poor woman? Did you see the closeup of the button Chucky is wearing?

    for anyone keeping track who likes round numbers, this is post #300! let the celebrations begin! 8)

    Congratulations! Party balloons and music!

    Hey, I “juiced” you and American Street at OpEdNews this morning:

    Excellent, excellent cover! But, “Huck ‘n Chuck” – now I have to make a beeline to the bathroom!

    More later, after I get hold of my stomach again…

  3. nightowl724

    Come on, gals. Where’s the link to the Crooks and Liars nonnie-thingy? I’m dying to see!

  4. nightowl724

    Nevermind, I found it…

    I am so happy for you, nonnie, that I cried.

    You soooo deserve this! I knew her when…

  5. nonnie9999

    wow! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ thanks, nightowl! that was so sweet of you to link over to the diary at AS! ๐Ÿ˜† i had to laugh that the guy over there liked rudy the best. it seems to be the popular favorite. only 2 people liked the mccain one the best (me, too, that was my favorite, so that makes 3).
    silly, i didn’t even cry when i saw the C&L entry, but there are tears in my eyes now because of what you said. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
    it never would have happened if not for all of you here. i really mean that.

  6. Got a Grip

    Tweety really needs to get in there with Huck and Chuck to make it a threesome. We all know that no one does a man crush up quite as gaudily as Tweety does. But then again, maybe he’s worried Chuck will kick his ass…..

    I’m afraid I have to vote for Rudy at the circus, too. It’s just so…..something….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Got a Grip

    nonnie, if you’re going to burst into tears every time one of us bursts into tears on account of our pride in your righteously earned success, I’m going to have to send you a case of Kleenex (the lotiony kind to keep your nose soft and supple). I’ve bawled like a baby at least three times since Wednesday because I’m so proud of you. Of course, the painkillers might have something to do with it, too….

  8. nonnie9999

    you girls had better stop! i am fine until i get here, and then i start bawling like a baby. of course, not as much as tweety will be once all of his man crushes are eliminated from the running. i am sorta hoping that, in the end, tweety and rudy will wind up together in a little house in the hamptons. they can name it spitfest manor. tweety can buy gifts of vitalis, and rudy can get tweety a ride in a nypd car. dammit! now i’m bawling again!

    Maybe, Chuck is scabby’s immigration plan. He can put him in the Texas Rangers, again. Then Chuck will kick the butts of anyone who tries to sneak into the country with a bazooka of any sort.

  10. nonnie9999

    i don’t know, fotc. chucky is so enamored with scabby mchuckleberry that i would be afraid that he would start daydreaming and letting all the immigrants across the border.

  11. nightowl724

    “A comedy if you like flirting with disaster.” “Spitfest manor.” HAHAHAHA!

    Gotta, I’ll pitch in on the Kleenex if you’ll be in charge of splitting the case four ways – nonnie, fotc, you, and me, K?

    Maybe we should all go to the Kleenex blog and “Let It Out” (what an unfortunate slogan!):

  12. nonnie9999

    oh my! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ does that blog cover kleenex toilet paper as well? if so, there really, really do have to change that name!

  13. nightowl724

    LOL! Even if confined to “north of the border,” it’s still pretty icky… I wonder what they were thinking about that day on Madison Avenue?

  14. nonnie9999

    you have to wonder why the hell kleenex needs a blog at all. what do they blog about? overnight booger digest?

  15. nightowl724

    I’m not even going to go down the “booger” road with you…

    I suppose they “need” a blog because newthink dictates that every company needs one! I’m pretty sure the Kleenex blog would be the exception to that rule. However, I do have to wonder about the people posting there.

  16. Friend of the court

    I wonder if they have a feature like ‘welcome new users’, where you can ask questions? I want to find out the easiest way to get about a thousand little balls of tissue off my new black fleece hoodie. I should have checked the pockets.

  17. nonnie9999

    ‘booger road’ would be a better name than ‘let it all out.’ of course, it could have been worse. it could have been ‘let it all hang out.’ that would have brought too many nasty images to mind (and no, i am not going to photoshop them).
    fotc, i think we should go bombard the blog with questions. why do they fall apart and disintegrate on the bottom of my purse even when i haven’t used them? what if i can’t find a box that matches my decor; should i wipe my nose on my sleeve?
    i think i had better go to bed. i’m getting punchy.

  18. Got a Grip

    At the rate we’ve been bursting into tears lately, I’d say we all need a case of our own, nightowl. Just think of the day we all finally get to meet. There won’t be a dry eye in the house.

    Last time I was shopping for groceries, there were all these new, designer kleenex containers, made out of plastic, that looked like cute little gift boxes. They were oval in shape and had all these cool colors and patterns. I was going to buy some for my sister, who goes through a box of kleenex a week, but then I looked at the price. I decided it was more important to feed us for a week than buy one box of designer tissues. I mean, we’re going to blow snot in them and pick up the stray dog turd from when the dog hangs her ass over the side of her potty box. If the Queen of England or Keith Olbermann ever shows up at my house, I’ll spring for the pretty box. Otherwise, I’m going for the plain ones…..

  19. nightowl724

    fotc, how much ya wanna bet that the Kleenex FAQ answer to your dilemma would be to pick it off…with more Kleenex?

  20. nightowl724

    About “Booger Road” – if yinz guyz (I’m from Pittsburgh, doncha know?) ever read Dave Barry… Every time he hears a funny phrase such as that, he writes that it would be a good name for a rock band. I’d say “Booger Road” qualifies, no?

    I love the idea of bombarding the Kleenex web site with questions! Personally, I’d like to know what to do when they don’t pop out of the box properly. Is it user error or a factory malfunction? Is this covered under the uncon-tish-onal warranty? And, why did Howard Hughes choose Kleenex boxes for shoes, when Puffs are softer?

    nonnie, I’m sure they’d love to have your design decor suggestion dropped into their Kleenex Suggestion Box (turn right, by the door).

    I don’t think you are punchy, nonnie. I think you are hysterical, like the rest of us:

    I almost fell off my chair when I found that site! I’ve just been waiting for the right time to post it here! HA!

  21. nightowl724

    gotta, you’re right! We’ll each need a case if this keeps happening! And, nonnie isn’t the only one around here making me cry with joy and pride lately – YOU did it, too.

    cfk named Let Peace Begin with Me by our own little Raisinet Got a Grip as a โ€œBest of 2007โ€ in a comment to a diary over at Daily Kos by smintheus called Give Us Your Best?

    I meant to tell everyone the other day. Sorry.

  22. nightowl724

    It would be so fantastic to meet the other Raisin Sisters. Might I suggest one of the numerous raisin festivals?

    The River Raisin runs through Monroe County, MI and they have several festivals throughout the year. Selma, AL has a raisin festival and there’s one in the San Joaquin Valley in CA – both in May – to celebrate National Raisin Week.

    I’m more inclined to the one in India in October:

    or the one in Crete in August:

    Any takers?

  23. nightowl724

    Damn, gotta! “Keepsake” Kleenex boxes? And, you passed them by in favor of eating for a week? No!

    Ummm… Your dog uses a potty box? What is that?

    In my usual last-minute style, I’ve been up all night wrapping Christmas gifts (!) for the company I’m getting in a few hours. Now, if only I had some empty Kleenex boxes, it would be so much easier…

  24. Got a Grip

    Pshaw, nightowl, you make me blush. It was very nice, though, to have cfk think my diary was worthy. It ranks right up there when MB linked to one of my diaries on protesting on a front page post and said glowing things about me. I’m touched that you took the time to dig that link out and post it. Damn it, where are my kleenex?

    If we’re going for broke in the Raisin sister’s reunion, then I’d have to say let’s go to Crete or India. Those would be fantastic trips. nonnie will have to become rich and famous so she can keep us all in a style we’d like to become accustomed to for that to happen, though. Michigan is really beautiful, but the mosquitoes there in the summer are the size of eagles, so it might not be the best choice. San Joquin might be nice. See, you’ve given me too many choices, I can never make up my mind….;-)

  25. Friend of the court

    I vote for San Joaquin. Fresno in May, is almost the same as April in Paris, only different. Also, where there are rasins, there are grapes and wine. Further more, I live just up the Valley and it would be a shortish train trip. I’ll go to the Quick Stop, now and buy a Lotto ticket. If it is a winner, limo service will be provided, for all, door to door.

  26. nonnie9999

    okie dokie, i see we have covered tears and boogers and weird websites and raisins and expensive tissue boxes and queen elizabeth and keith olbermann and kleenex malfunctions and lotto. who says this is not a well-rounded site? 8)
    thanks, nightowl, for finding that and letting us all know. i love how everyone here looks out for everyone else. mmmmwwaaahhhhhh!!!!

  27. Friend of the court

    Ok, here we go, QP 01/02/25/37/41 Meg 21. Concentrate at 7:55 PST. I will be lighting a candle, or something. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. Got a Grip

    San Joaquin it is, then, fotc!! Wine and limos sounds like heaven. And if we could throw in a couple of youngish men with palm fronds to feed us the grapes, I think we’re definitely on to something. Think Fred would volunteer? Hope you have room for all at your place….

    No praise for me, it was but a tiny blip in the DK system. It meant more to me to share the image in it with each of you first. I’m just so glad to have a place to hang out with smart, funny, intelligent women who also happen to have loving hearts. Some days I feel very blessed. This would be one of those days.

    Now we better get on with that Kleenex order, my socks are getting wet…..

  29. nonnie9999

    i am going to round up a lotto prayer circle. maybe we need a raisinette weekly lotto thing. we can each pick one number, and we all buy one ticket in our various locations with all the numbers. just one ticket a week for one buck. if we win, we split it and splurge on a raisinvention.

  30. nonnie9999

    peeled grapes, hon, they have to be peeled! hey! maybe we can send for trm! he can peel the grapes! ๐Ÿ˜›
    yes, praise for you!! didn’t i tell you that a diary with those images would be wonderful? i have all kinds of faith in you, and i wish you would have it in yourself! now, don’t talk back!
    where’s that fucking box of kleenex…..?

  31. Got a Grip

    Those are fantastic ideas, nons! Raisinette lotto sounds like a great idea! And I think having TRM peel grapes for us is an idea whose time has definitely come. I really like grapes, so he’d better get to peeling them.

    You are right, I don’t have a great deal of faith in myself. I use my faith on others, where I feel it does the most good. But one of these days I may get up the gumption to put some faith in myself. And I know where to find those that will propel me forward when that finally comes…… ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. nonnie9999

    sometimes, you just need to put the cart in front of the horse. do what you do, and the faith in yourself will follow.

  33. Friend of the court

    Lotto was a bust; 3/15/18/40/41 Meg. 4. Those fools drew all the wrong numbers. Oh well, there’s always another game.

  34. nightowl724

    Fresno ’08!

  35. nonnie9999

    i never understood why they have such stoopid people pulling the numbers for lotto. they never pull the right ones! it must be a countrywide problem. the same thing happens here.
