Believe it or not, my dearest Raisinettes, this is the 1500th post at the Raisin.  I wanted to do something special to mark the occasion, and it occurred to me that, after all this time and all these posts, there’s never been a declared Raisin mission statement.  Well, let’s correct that right now:

We’re watching you every moment, John Boehner! Be afraid, be very afraid!

I hope all the raisinettes, new and old, know how much I love you and appreciate your loyalty, your smart and hilarious comments, and your friendship.

    So what are the next posters? “Raisin in the Sun” done as “Raisin Who is Dumb”? Or. “A Clockwork Orange” as “A Dumb Cluck Orange”? Hey, I’ve made it my life’s work to get an idea produced as one of your posters! 😉
    Seriously – well done, Nonnie. And always, ALWAYS great fun! 😀

    • raisins aren’t dumb!!! 😯 there is already a clockwork orange poster, and i bet you won’t have to use up too many guesses to figure out who it’s about.

      just keep commenting, john erickson. i get lots of ideas from the comments. raisinettesl inspire posters without even trying. 🙂

        D’OH! Sorry about the “raisin” poster idea – I didn’t think that through before writing it down. It’s been a long day and week. I NEVER meant to insult you and your Raisin hoard (bunch? boxload? whatever).
        Shoulda known you’d use an obvious idea like the orange, with The Orange. (Kinda Karmic, ain’t it?) But I’m not gonna give up! Maybe me and Tex can do a few Stooges themed ideas. Frightening, ain’t it? 😀

        • don’t worry, john, raisinettes are a very forgiving group. there are actually quite a few 3 stooges movies here. however, if there’s a stooges movie that fits a story, let me know. i’m always open to suggestions.

    WOW 1500! Woo hooooo! Good for you, nonnie. I love my daily dose of raisins. They help me stay regular.

    • thanks, sds! raisins are very good for you. my grandma (may she rest in peace) used to say that things were good for the mogn. she usually meant that it would help you poop. 😆

      thanks for being a regular raisinette, sds, in more ways than one. 😉

    Congratulations, nonnie! you should be proud of your remarkable body of work. i can remember back in the day when we were grapes.

    Congratulations Nonnie!!

  8. Congrats nonnie. You should be proud. I look forward to your posts. We need to laugh at these a**holes and you certainly do a good job. Keep up the good work!

    • 1500 is an arbitrary number, but you know how these things go. what i really should be congratulated for is for having the very best, smartest, and funniest raisinettes commenting here. i love you guys! 😀

    Here’s to the next 1500!

  10. All hail Nonnie, our Queen Raisin! She works so tirelessly, even with an injury to keep us all amused and informed and almost never takes a day off. What dedication! Our own Raisin Dierdre!

  11. Hooray for Nonnie’s 1500th! You do a great job of intertwining humor, parody, and serious commentary. I have to also thank Write Chic for guiding me here.

  12. Whoa! made me think…. if you took 1500… divided by 12.5 … subtracted 8,,, then multiplied by 4….. then took the square root of Paul Ryan’s budget, added 18….. eliminated collective bargaining… Why Gosh…

    … you would end up with one of the most interesting Blogs on the Block!!
    Good on you!!!!!!! Looking forward to many more! 🙂

  13. The Whiner poster is genius– and as always, thanks for the entertainment, cheers to 1500 more!!!!

    • thank you, edgy, especially for letting me call you edgy! when i noticed that you “signed” your comment, it made me smile from ear to ear. 😀

    Awesome 1500 nonnie! Always great stuff, love the Raisinettes! Looking forward to your next 1500! Congrats!!

  15. Congratulations, Nonnie! Looking forward to the next 1500!

  16. Felicidades Nonnie!!!!!
    I like all the empty booze bottles (next to his big gavel haha) around Boehner. 😛

  17. Keep it coming! We need this so much. Every time I hear Rethuglicans whining about “the liberal media” I ask myself, where hell is it? Give me a web address or a TV channel, I want to hear it.

  18. Arrgggh!

    I chose the wrong day to link to you from Crooks and Liars!

    Drats, foiled again!

    Congrats to you Nonnie and all the Raisinettes on achieving such an august moment. They way the first 1,500 are the hardest, so you get to coast from here.



    • thank you, 10G, and thanks so much for all the links from c&j. there are times i feel frustrated when i look at the stats, and then poof! i sign on and see hundreds of hits! 😀 it’s always the best surprise, and i appreciate it so much. mmmwwaaahhhhh!
