Hosedragger has been a filking tsunami today. (That's a compliment, not a typo.)

Not that never-ending threads are always a bad thing, but...

Open Thread

Teh yay!


At 6:10 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

first post.

it's like walking in new snow.

that Fred hasn't written in.

At 6:11 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

And the snow angels are still happy.

At 6:11 PM, Blogger SBH said...

Let the Schadenfrisch begin!

(hey, I'm getting fast at this)

At 6:11 PM, Blogger tim said...

Yeah...this thread can be anything we want...teh yay.

At 6:15 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

We could talk about cooking. I make a Roast Beef of The Gods.

Also, squash casserole and pecan pie of The Gods.

That about covers it for me. Well, of course, cornbread and grits. They'd drum me out of the Southern Women's Club if I couldn't do cornbread and grits. I'd have to be in, like, the NorthWest Women's Club or something.

At 6:16 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

So, what was up with google this afternoon?

I finally got the comment that hawk wrote on the lexicon, almost 3 hours later.

I'm going to add those synonyms for Frisch from hosedragger.

At 6:18 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Joe -

It's been weird off and on since early this morning (GA time).

At 6:18 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

I did try to get "Debinition" into the Lexicon, but it never caught on.

"Debinition" a word that Der Frischenator defines one way, and the rest of the world defines another.

Any usage that begs the response, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Not to be confused with words that Deb creates, such as "defamate," though even words she creates can include a Debinition."

At 6:19 PM, Blogger Sulla said...


Did you harvest your vegetables from the Garden of the Gods?

Sorry. A little Colorado humor. Me being Jeff Goldstein and all.

At 6:19 PM, Blogger Mariposa said...

BrendaK-I'm about to make chocolate chip cookies to take in to work tomorrow. We're having a "cultural" luncheon and are supposed to bring in something to represent our ethnic heritage. I almost went with chips and salsa (being from Texas and all), but one of the guys wanted to...and I like to bake.

At 6:20 PM, Blogger tim said...


u oughta Fed-Ex some grits to u-no-who ;)

At 6:20 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Sulla -

You'll have to apply to Joe. I think I've used up all my credit for the time being.

At 6:22 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Tim -

I use only the finest grits, gathered at dawn from the most excellent grits plants.

Too good for u-n-hu.

Respect the Grits!

At 6:24 PM, Blogger tim said...


Useful word. What are the most common debinitions--i.e., common words taht teh Deb defricates/ mangles?

At 6:25 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

mariposa -

Ok, if I did that to express my cultural heritage, I'd have to make cookies with little faces that have bad teeth, green eyes, an interesting nose, a tiny little sporan and festooned with bird feathers.

I'm thinking they'd be afraid of my cookies.

At 6:26 PM, Blogger tim said...


u r ->

My wholehearted apology to the grits...

Waht *was* I tehnking?!

Pelase 4give.

At 6:28 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


can you remember any frisched-out words and their "debinitions"? If I had some examples, they could definitely get in?

At 6:28 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Oh, jeez, I forgot one of the heritages. They'd have to be cowardly little cookies, as well.

At 6:28 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


get in.

At 6:29 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Tim -

You are forgiven, of course. You could not know the Secret Society of the Grits Makers. We even have a secret handshake.

At 6:30 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

I don't normally repost but this is the only song I ever wrote and it kind of got buried earlier in that magnificent volcano of creativity, otherwise known as Hosedragger.

Sung to the tune of Three Little Fishies


In the northwest country, where the weather is cool,
Lived a real crazy lady, an isufferable fool.
VBSers gonna take her to school
And make her dance, make her dance,
'Til she craps her pants!

Dancin' monkey flingin' poo
Dancin' monkey flingin' poo
Dancin' monkey flingin' poo

Make her dance, make her dance,
'Til she craps her pants!


At 6:30 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

Slept late. (You fortunate fools.)

Finally caught up with all of today's posts.

This Frisch person gives me the willies.

At 6:31 PM, Blogger Mariposa said...

Hey look- Deb's alma mater is in the news. This is from cnn.com. I am blogger illiterate and can't do a link in a comment.

Ivy League professor in third sex pinch in 11 years

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (AP) -- An Ivy League professor has been arrested for the third time in 11 years on child sex charges, in this case over video that allegedly shows him engaging in sex acts with boys.

Because of the charges, L. Scott Ward, a professor emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business, was being stripped of his teaching assignments, spokeswoman Lori N. Doyle said Tuesday.

Isn't it about time we hear from the gefilte frisch herself? It's been awhile, and my schadenfrisch could use a topping off.

Denny Crane!

At 6:31 PM, Blogger Texette said...


My cookies would look like guns.

At 6:32 PM, Blogger tim said...

Thx, Bren :)

I feel so inadequate around all of these great cooks~~my own culinary talents are strained by making ice!

p.s. teh!™

At 6:33 PM, Blogger Mariposa said...

My heritage is mostly German and Irish (it's where the red hair came from). I don't know how to make any typically German foods and I only make corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day. I'm American and so are chocolate chip cookies. Plus, I like them. I don't make fancy shapes though

At 6:34 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Fred -

It is a masterpiece of rhyme and rhythm, and a worthy entrance to the Poetry Corner.

Merry Frischmas!

At 6:35 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


But, you're the Swedish Chef; you should be good at throwing the pots and pans around.


At 6:39 PM, Blogger Sulla said...


The ones that stuck out the most for me are the ones that keep getting her in trouble:

1. Someone who sees the humor in having their likeness Photoshopped onto a box of children's cereal, which has been obscenely renamed, by a political opponent.

2. Someone who blogs from home, using "grown-up" words.

Count with out the O. See "Pedophile-1". Cuz it's a pun. Get it? *tap tap* is this thing on?

1. what I'm accused of doing, but didn't.
2. What others do to me by quoting me to my boss.

What other people say, using "facts" and "logic" to confuse the truth, which is whatever I say it is.

At 6:41 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

i have to be up at 5 in the morning for a phreaking phlight to new jersey.

i wish i had time to read all the posts from today, but i do have to agree that hosedragger has been on quite a roll.

and joe is getting really funny with the straight-faced tenacity. (someday she's gonna answer, joe. i just know it.)

and brenda, can you please post your recipe for squash casserole? that might go well with staci's $50 salad.

mariposa: man, there are a lot of texans here! almost as many texans as redheads.

found out today the dog may have bone cancer.

she's lying next to me whining off the sedatives they gave her while they did xrays of what i thought might be a broken bone in her foot from playing too hard at camp bow wow yesterday.

At 6:41 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

mariposa and texette -

I'm such a mix, I usually go with 'Merican Mutt.

I got a little something from each of them. The hair is Irish, the blue-no green-no blue eyes are English, the cheekbones from the Cherokee, the abililty to squeeze a penny until it weeps from the Scots (thanks, Grandma!), the ability to curse in a supercilious manner from the French, and the ability to tell dreck from shinola from the Jewish.

At 6:43 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

"Freedom of Speech" saying whatever it takes for me to get banned, so that I can claim victimhood for having my free speech rights violated.

Oh, and my previous post doesn't exist. And you're stalking me for leaving it up. i never said it. Blogger Beta was not working earlier today, so I'm sure Sinner and Sulla took the opportunity to alter the logs to make me say things I didn't say. Because I didn't.

At 6:43 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Ottavarima -

I am so, so sorry. Please give her a ear scratch and belly rub from me.

At 6:48 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Ohmigaw, those are priceless. They definitely need to go in as they are very educational for newcomers. They read those, they can dive right in with teh funny®.

At 6:49 PM, Blogger Texette said...


Ethics--What you violate when I don't like what you do

At 6:50 PM, Blogger Texette said...


My heart aches for you. Will pray.

At 6:50 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

Denny Crane!
You should solicit Fred for that request...he has the special magic.
If you doubt, read the previous thread before threat upgrade today.

At 6:57 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Sulla and Joe:

Legality - whatever I think is fair for me

At 6:58 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

mariposa -

I've been making that squash casserole for so long, I don't even have a recipe anymore. I'll try to work it up and post it.

At 6:59 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Ok...back from the walk with my dog Liberty. I see the coward won't show to take me on. I guess she knows when she has met her better. Probably why she stays inside all day.

Sorry about the pup. That sux. I know mine is a huge part of my world.

My signature dish is Tri-tip with whiskey peppercorn sauce, garlic whipped potatos, and asperagus.

At 6:59 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

thanks brenda and texette.

see, this is why i come here. for kind words (when needed) and teh funny® (always)

(oh, and to do my small, tiny, bit part in ensuring teh frisch® never again has a teaching position. i mean, not even writing the scripts for the talking trees at the teaching forest out on jordan lake.)

my RL friends and i have spent the day bawling.

i needed a good gut laugh.

thanks, sweet VBSers.

At 7:01 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

and hosedragger . . . thx.

yeah. if you have a golden, you know how sweet all these retrievers are.

(didn't you say in a former thread that your dog is a golden?)

At 7:01 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Idiot: Everyine but me. i am the smartest person in the world. Just look at my pee aich deeeee. There may be 4 other people that may come close, but no...I am so smart...I am so smart...s-m-r-t..no, wait...s-m-a-r-t

At 7:04 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Yup...a beautiful, sweet blonde haired Golden named Liberty. She snuggles with me on the couch every night.

At 7:06 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...


I have a chocolate lab too. Try not to worry. Your prayer chain has been started.

At 7:07 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Stupid: What I call everyone when they stump me with logic, reason or big words that I don't understand and can't pronounce. This is my catch-all term when I am outgunned in a battle of wits. See: always.

At 7:08 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


You don't know how right you guys are. I've been in contact with other people via email showing more examples of Frischery. I can't post any of the comments because I don't have the permission of all those involved, but it's basically the same circumstances as the Sadly, No crew when she started trolling for advice on the restraining order.

She really gets around.

At 7:08 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

OttavaRima -

A big hug to you and your Golden (please give him/her an affectionate pat from Unca' Fatwa).

At 7:09 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Google: A mythical website that I am constantly told to use, yet I can not find a link to it anywhere. I firmly believe that the little pissants tell me to use this while tinkling on my ankle to throw me off since I am way more smart than they are and they fear my big brain and Pee Aich Deeeeee

At 7:09 PM, Blogger Denny Crane said...

Nah, Ph.D. isn't so much of a stick, as it is a shield. She seems to think she's immune from any and all repercussions from her conduct because she wields that Ph.D. badge.

To her, it's instant legitimacy or credibility, despite the most absurd statements she makes.

It's a get out of jail free card.

Denny Crane!

At 7:10 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

hat-trick: A phrase I am too rarified to understand.

Comedy: Rants that other people would laugh at if they weren't so stupid.

Popular Culture: What?

At 7:11 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...


Lost a post somewhere.

Reported back in,

Said so sorry to otta,

Said we've goy an old er border collie whos showing her age.

Then lost it.

At 7:12 PM, Blogger Denny Crane said...

Sit, Liberty, sit!

OK, roll over Liberty.

I've been making that squash casserole for so long, I don't even have a recipe anymore. I'll try to work it up and post it.

you are a true southern girl, brenda. one whose cooking skills my mom would be proud of.

me, every thanksgiving and christmas, i have to call my mom in gilmer (tx) and ask her to walk me through the cornbread dressing all my non-texan friends have grown to love.

i would write it down, but the way my mom gives me the instructions every year ... just doesn't lend itself to a 3x5 recipe card.

sorry all. didn't mean to try and highjack the thread with sad news.

really, it's probably all going to be just fine. it's just a bitch that it will take until friday to hear something back from the radiologist.

I'm crossing my pudgy William Shatner fingers for you. No biopsy yet, right? Stay positive.

Ok, I'm actually crossing my long, strong and slender real fingers for you. There really is a human behind this stolen character.

I wish you the best.

At 7:19 PM, Blogger Denny Crane said...

Til Friday???


Damn, send ME the films! This is ridiculous. I've NEVER heard of such a lengthy delay. Raise hell!

At 7:19 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Dude - *stumbling into the room* (cough) *bleary-eyed* I took the day off of work today, some kind of cold, and slept in most of the day. Took me forever to catch up on all the comments on all the threads.

Dang, Hosedragger, As You Like It, Francis Scott Key, too many other references to cite. Whatever selected bibliography you have in your head, I want a copy.

And Dude, more congrats on the Australanche. Quotes from CNET, and from Glenn Read the whole thing™ Reynolds, this blogging thing is turning into quite the hobby.

Looks like Deb left some chimp tar™ this morning but didn't feel like playing.

Ottavarima, sorry to hear about your dog.

At 7:19 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

"poo - boomerang"

PS I loved the song pal. Now get over to that induction center before you get into trouble!

At 7:20 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

You didn't hijack the thread; we all sort of jumped in.

Please let us know what you hear on Friday.

And we'll keep teh funny going.

As a man of the South would say, it's not a recipe if you write it down.

LDSB: Hi mumsie. I just thought I would call and tell you what those big bad meanies over at that little brained website were doing today

Mumsie: Oh Jesus Christ. Don't you have anything better to do? Shouldn't you be looking for a job for Jeebus' sake?

LDSB: Oh now mumsie...you know you don't mean that. Anywhooo, I went there just sweet as can be and asked how everyone was doing. You know me, I would never offend anyone and you know what those big meanies did?

Mumsie: No, but I know you are going to tell me anyway (muttering under breath-Damn...why did I have to be pro-life)

LDSB: those big meanies used big confusing words. They made me feel all stupid and everything. They were demanding to know all this personal information about me. They wanted to know things about when I was wrongfully accused and falsly arrested. They even wanted to know why no woman will have me. So I told them all what big doodie heads they were and stormed out of there. One guy even called me a two-bit, yellow-bellied spineless coward. Can you believe that? I have been crying all day. They hurt my widdle feewings.

Mumsie: you know Deb...maybe you should just grow up. I mean for God's sake, you are 44 years old. You have lost your job, lost your reputation, lost your friends, lost your girlfriend, lost your mind...I mean damn...how much does it take until you get it through that thick skull of yours. Daddums and I can't afford to clean up after you every time you shit somewhere. We're tired of it. You are looking at going to jail and having everything you own taken away from you by the courts. GROW THE HELL UP ALREADY!!! CHEEEEEEEEEERIST WOMAN!!!

LDSB: Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!! You are just as mean as them. And stupid too. You never understood me. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

At 7:22 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

(fatwa, she just got a big kiss from you!)

okay, here's something funny. one of my friends told me today that the dog would have really bad gas when the sedatives begin to wear off (she's never been sick before, so this is new to me).

it's TRUE.

oh holy man, it stinks.

it stinks nearly as bad as teh monkey's flung poo.

At 7:23 PM, Blogger Sulla said...


So sorry to hear about your dog.

You're in our prayers for a swift and speedy recovery. Camp Bow Wow awaits.

At 7:24 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Oh, and Denny Crane! What a shtick you had going on with yourself last night, and also later today.
"Denny Clean!"

Awesome stuff

Nice Exley pic! Sick! When did that happen?

At 7:27 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...


If teh Deb came now she might just be civil. I don't think she could be mean about a sick woofie.

She'd kick the Gerbils in their teeth, but she might actually say something nice about someones sick dog.

At 7:27 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

(Paraphrased) Into every life a little gas must expand.

(Further Praphrased) Into every living room a fart must waft.

Dude - when the alarm went off this morning, I had aches, chills, a sore throat. No way did I want to spread it around at work, too. Feeling better now. Must have caught it on the L yesterday.

At 7:28 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Look at the bright side Otta...now you can fart yourself, blame the dog and people would HAVE to believe you.

At 7:30 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

Hose, Snap out of it man.
You have created a veritable Frischian Shakespeare's Anthology today....combined with a Perry Mason agressiveness toward Herr Frisch that would impress not only Denny Crane ! but also a great many litigators I know.
So what do we have here with you...a poet and an inquisitor?




Fred? (don't hit the button yet!)

I think, notwithstanding the Truth or Consequences gag we saw today (which was brilliant off the cuff comedy), the emergence of a true star.

Thanks, Petrarchan.

Sometimes when the wine comes out, the kids hide the family schtick where I can't find it until it's too late and I've already sat down. I've had that schtick up my ass for two days now! Lets hope it works its way out soon, because I need the sleep and the reserve neurons.

So true, so true. Tell you what though, I'm just have a few special dishes that stand out.

My grandmother, now, is the best cook in the universe and uses not a single recipe. Two of her secrets are an extra egg in every bakery item and lard in everything else. Lard sounds bad, and your thighs won't respect you in the morning, but it's the good stuff.

Grandma said I could tell those secrets, so I guess they aren't anymore.

y'all are funny. thanks for ending my night with a laugh AND kind words. i'll definitely let y'all know what the radiologist says.

(denny, i love you more every day. if i owned the films i'd overnight them to you!)

i really am going to bed (unlike last night, when i kept reappearing... i didn't have to get out of bed before the phreaking crack of dawn this morning; but i do tomorrow).

thank you one and all for your kind words and prayers for my girl. can't wait to get back from new jersey tomorrow night and spend some time catching up on teh phunnie®

i'll be in the newark airport from 4 to 5, waiting for the flight home.

please page me if teh-craZy-over the-top-batfrishiness© happens.

i'm not taking my laptop with me, because i don't want to get held up at security for a flight up and back in one day. all i'm taking, in addition to my portfolio and some business cards, is a credit card, my driver's license, and a lipstick. (gotta have the lipstick)

...but if the batfrisch alert comes on the loudspeakers, i'll by golly commandeer the ibm-guy-next-to-me-at-bar's laptop to check it out.

hey ... poo-boomerang?

why not "poomerang"?

thank you thank you thank you once again sweet VBSers for your good thoughts toward the dog. (her name is emma, by the way)

now i can go to bed with a much less heavy heart.

At 7:45 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...


Every time I go down there, the minute I walk in, the whole place erupts in a thunderous wave of uncontrolled laughter. I don't even say anything. It's kind of weird.

I tried waiting around once, just to see if I could, you know, get waited on and stuff, and this big guy came stumbling up to me, holding his belly, and gasping, "I...can't...breath!" His face was purple! Well, that just made everybody laugh even harder, including Sargent Eggplant.

So I left. I don't think I should go back. Somebody could get hurt.

She has nothing to say.
And so she Frisched you

Yes, she Frisched you
'Cause her brain's filled with a fart.

She says that she will sue
You know she's lost her mind.
She's got nothing better to do
She got her life into a bind.
And so she Frisched you
She drank lots of Teh Vodka
She Frisched you
You can always count on Deborah. Ooh!

She Frisched you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She Frisched you, yeah, yeah, yeah
And with a Freak like that
You know her lawyer isn't glad.

She's always flinging poo,
She says you aren't fair,
She brings Teh Crazee home to you,
Debonics' in the air
Because she Frisched you
She drank lots of Teh Vodka
She Frisched you
You can always count on Deborah Ooh!

She Frisched you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She Frisched you, yeah, yeah, yeah
And with a freak like that
You know her lawyer isn't glad.
With a freak like that
Her parents must be sad.
With a freak like that,
Her poetry's reeeally....BAAAAD!
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Yeah, yeah, yeah Ye-ah.

Windows XP. I have tried resetting, and restarting from an earlier point. No go.

Hawk - 7 steps to deb-free sobriety.

I don't remember what they are, though. I never even succeeded at step 1.

I may have an idea to fix your problem, but petrarchan had something in mind and it might work better for you. He needs to know your operating system.

If his fix doesn't work out, I'll layout mine.

No quick way! One text paste at a time.

Petrarchan -

I had in mind a startup manager to uncheck everything allowed and reboot, rechecking startup items one at a time and rebooting until he found the problem.

Tedious, but without a better idea of the error message and behavior it is all I could think of.

hey, eri -

How are you going tonight? What is up with that Google? It's been flaking in and out since early this morning (EST).

I'm doing well, Brenda :) A little tired but no biggie. It's getting mighty close to my bedtime. And how are you doing this lovely evening?

P.S. Redheads of the world UNITE! :)

OK...switched avatars

Looks like your system folder got corrupted. Have you tried going into the XP recovery console and try to copy the system folder from one of your XP system disks to that same location? That's what I would try to do. Anything to avoid a reformat.

But actually, a reformat may not be so bad. XP will detect that it's already there, so it will try to do a "refresh" rather than a reformat.

Ottavarima- I know you said you were going to bed, but I just came back to the site and wanted to add good wishes for Emma from myself and my golden (they're almost as plentiful around here as redheads!)

I also want to suggest a debinition.

"Actionable"- anything you say about me that I don't like is something I can sue about, even if what you say is true. I can sue and will make lots of money on my actionable issues.
