Quick Bites

1. It's been relatively quiet today at SWP. Keep your fingers crossed. (So sue me - I'm a softie.)

2. The SWP tip jar is growing, and at an accelerating rate. (Three tippers, $15. Hey, that's two more Lincolns than John Wilkes Booth managed to drop.)

3. Weird Al Yankovic (MP3 download link) enters the Frischmas Eve poetry slam. (For you RIAA types out there, he's made it freely available. I buy his stuff twice just to ensure Al gets paid.)

4. Will Hosedragger's laptop survive last night's invasive surgery with files intact, or will we be forming a "Don't Hire James2of3" website? (Fair warning, James: we've seen Hosedragger's freckled muse. You want to keep him happy.)

5. Drudge has a cheesecake shot of Rosie O'Donnell and the ladies from The View. Curse him.

6. Denny Crane!


At 5:32 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

The poetry slam thread is pretty quiet. Did Hosedragger take the week with his Hall of Fame efforts?

If so, which one takes the prize?

At 5:41 PM, Blogger Texette said...

I would have put my "Women's Prison Blues" on that page, but I didn't want to type it all over again, because I'm too ignorant to do otherwise. I'll get better. I'm reading up how to do links!

At 5:50 PM, Blogger Sulla said...


I copied it into the thread for you.

At 6:00 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Sulla - Hey now! Job security is a wonderful thing (Joe, don't you start!). BTW, while Hosedragger got a little melodramatic in the comments, in email, his laptop's condition wasn't so dire. I reckon if he follows the last bit of my instructions, he'll have everything back.

At 6:01 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Sulla - question, while you're minding the store, why hasn't Sinner added a site meter to this site?

Deb Frisch Affair Wikipedia Entry

Add content before it gets yanked.

At 6:06 PM, Blogger tim said...


Who on earth tagged it for "speedy deletion" so quickly?!

(No, I'm not guessing teh deb...we all know that Google™ represents a stretch for her skills....)

At 6:09 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Pet - thanks for the explanation, btw. 'access denied' makes bunches more sense than 'folders disappeared."

At 6:11 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

brendak - one of my many talents, translating "geek-tawk" to "reasonably sane-ese".

At 6:13 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

and sulla - I haven't heard from hosedragger all day, either. I was hoping to get him through the last bit via email at work, but nothing since his email at around 2:40 am PDT

At 6:20 PM, Blogger Texette said...

Thank you, Sulla. You are a gentleman. So is Tim.

At 6:23 PM, Blogger Texette said...

Okay amigos, since Sulla was so nice, I added another (minor) little country ditty to the poetry thread. I'm no Hosedragger (in more ways than one), but it's fun anyway.

This song parody is the DHB version of "Please Release Me".

At 6:25 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Dear heavens, more bad poetry at bad poetry central.

Is there no end to her evil?

Is there no end to her banality?

Mediocre, thy name is Frisch.

Deb - please stick to the book. At least that's just boring and pretentious, rather than an assault on the sensibilities of all who behold it.

At 6:31 PM, Blogger Sulla said...


No offense. :) Just funnin'. I was just impatient for the deus ex machina moment.

At 6:35 PM, Blogger Texette said...

Your bad poetry critique posted immediately after I told everyone I had another mindless parody up, and I started to read your post, and I started to get pissed, because, you know, there is too an end to my evil, and then I saw it wasn't me you were writing about, so never mind!

At 6:42 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

texette -

I never, ever thought you are evil.

Please, do the parody. It's bound to be clever and we could all use that after another assault from Debs Deadly Verse.

It's so bad, it has the ability to reach out and smother the souls of other blogs. We must stay strong!

At 6:44 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

texette -

Oh, right, RTFT. Going to the poetry thread now.

Nicely done "over there"!

At 6:49 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Hi, all -

I see it's been a slow day at Kamp Kaczynski; this could be the worst Frischmas ever.

But there was a nice little bit of poetry from Irish Whiskey in the comments:

descends upon my shoulders like
a well-worn cloak;
comforting, healing, this sullan breast.
And in this dark I can be myself
Not some Joe Schmoe who lives his life
swinging the hammers of conformity
like some John Henry laying the rails
of bureaucracy
who needs a crane to lift his soul above
the gutter of despair. Behold the sinner!
I soar like a hawk above your limits.
I welcome my muse to rise with me
above those who try to drag me down.
I will not submit to your fatwa of
It is not your right to grade my actions
like assignments in Ms. Brenda's class.
u get an "F" 4 this, and an "F" 4 that
Well I've got an eph for u
I'm not your trained monkey,
dancing at your whim.
Dance, monkey! Dance!
I cast off my cloak!
I spread my wings, as the winds
of change lift me up
and I turn my face to the sun.

She's currently trying to ride a New Enlightment from Ms. Marple.

It won't last, she's teh crazy®, but it's going to be cloyingly bad poetry interspiced with mind-numbingly boring Decision Risk Devine until she gets through it.

At 6:52 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

fatwa - And they still can't spell

Well, it had spelling and grammar errors...damn, I fired a blank.

At 7:01 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

No, no, I mean I can't believe she let mine through.

Yours was fine!

At 7:05 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Yoda - if that was you, then I bow to your use of Scmoe as spelled by Teh Debster™

At 7:05 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

I can't either...think the gate is open? Should we tell the herd?

No one caught the letter from Ike huh?

At 7:07 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

Joe is the official OED of this site. I know he is your brother, but bow to Oxford English Dictionary of Debonics, Teh Deb, and imminent fame. He is a veritable Matthew Arnold of Deb Frisch, PhD

At 7:12 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

hawk -

That was you? Excellent job. -- except, Deb will believe it.

She's as ignorant of history as she is pop culture.

At 7:14 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

Me it was...

BTW, just told your brother to bow to you

At 7:16 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Dude - just for my edification, the use of ® and ™ is limited to officially sanctioned entries in the DebLex? I'll abide by the rules of the community, of course.

At 7:16 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...


I might just save it for our next OPD.

(Thumbs in suspenders)

At 7:16 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Can't believe my comment got posted.

Especially as it contained a few words en Frischçaise. And was borderline illiterate.

But the name was a little bit tricksier than "Awtaf".

Right about now, I feel like a ten-year-old who just TP'd an annoying neighbor's trees.

At 7:16 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


No way! We bow to each other! Hmm... more like an arched eyebrow and a head nod.

Thanks, though!

By the way, check the new debinitions at the lexicon.

At 7:18 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Hawk -

OPD? Now I'm the ignorant one.

At 7:18 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

Hope I didn't sound too harsh in that last post. Adrenaline flowing it is. Teh Deb Frisch, PhD desire to meet we have.

At 7:19 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


The ®, ™, and © symbols should never be used in describing Ms. Frisch, only her antics.

At 7:20 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Yoda - well...I was about to say (affecting Garth's voice), "Harsh much?"

At 7:21 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Hey, Joe -

Teh Lexicon's looking good!

I trust you're feeling better than last evening.

Yup! You see any registered crap in the DHD names for Ms. Frisch?

Freeware that never expires?

At 7:26 PM, Blogger Texette said...

Just went over and read the comments at SWP. You all never cease to amaze me. One comment, I'm goin' "Oh my dawg, did it really say that?", and the next minute I'm spewing Red Bull all over the laptop screen.

VBS-ers, numba one.
I bow.

At 7:26 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Dude - wow, talk about your culture wars. Was I about to break off into a less fundamentalist sect because I like putting ™, like, everywhere?

At 7:28 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Dude - btw, I'm slooooowly migrating my other blog entries over, what a chore.

At 7:28 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


You used it technically correctly, though.

"the ® and ™ are used on the main three inside jokes of the DHD community. They can also be used as an extra qualifier for any word used after "teh"."

At 7:28 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Joe...ç'est moi.

You'll be taking home a fabulous Tappan microwave range with five cooking speeds and a terperature probe for perfect results everytime! Tappan...the leader in kitchen appliances since 1887!

[Smarmy announcer "off"]

The name is a Fatwanagram, if you will.

Pet - Glad to hear you're on teh mend.


At 7:30 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

terperature = temperature.


At 7:30 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Yeah, select text, copy, paste.

At 7:33 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

I thought Chell schooled her up on placement.

Is everybody Debster Diving at her site?

At 7:41 PM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

Ah! I see my sister-in-law's bit of free verse (free as in "Who the Frisch would pay for that?") was published by Dr. Otisbeer. Oh, the SchadenFrisch! How many of you found yourselves referenced? Irish tells me she could only fit in 10 of you.

Yoda: did you intend a reference to the Turkish for "31" in your poem (and its slang connotation)? If so, good on ya!

Well, let's see what Nancy Whisky has planned for tonight.

At 7:41 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

hawk -

Shhhhhhh! We're quietly waiting to see what happens when that article drops below the visible horizon of her blog.

At 7:43 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Yeah, the blogger composer gui sucks ass... actually it sucks worse than that, which is why I just write my posts in html.

I wrote in LATEX for my Astro papers, so it's really no big deal. The Yahoo 360 composer is actually much better.

At 7:44 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Dude - yep, I just find myself rechecking the html before posting it.

At 7:50 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...


I'd say OOPs (which is an anagram of of POOs) but I thought we decided that she's demonstrated to us that she's too stupid to pick up on shtuff like that.

How do you put up the trademark sign et al? I wanna do it!

At 7:54 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

hawk -

I just copy and paste. I have the signs in a doc, and I just copy the symbol and paste it wherever.

I think the actual html code is on one of the DHD posts.

I don't recognize the tune, but you can dance to it.

Are those really the easiest ways to type special characters in Windows? (Not being snarky; I'm honestly curious.)

At 8:02 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Holy Schnikies. I have missed the whole day. After being up till 4 working on the laptop, it was downloading a buttload of updates from MS and is now all frozen up installing them. It took me forever to figure that out. Hopefully it will finally resolve itself tonight when I can go back in and do what Pet told me to do to get my wicked cool files and movies back. Everything is there, I just can't access it, so I would say that for the most part, the operation was a success, but it is still in intensive care. In the mean time I am back upstairs on the desk-top, which isn't the best for the ol surgury spine thingie.

I also somehow seemed to have slept all day. I passed out somewhere between 4-5 and woke up at three. Did battle with the laptop, ate some chicken parmesgan, watched two episodes of "Simpsons" and came to see what the haps were.

How the hell is everyone?

As for a drink, I recommend Green Chartreuse, 151, and a splash of lemon vodka. If anyone is familiar with the chartreuse, you will know why it will work wonders. Otherwise I recommend a little "green fairy" You can order it from Europe on-line.

The little coward is keeping her tail between her legs I see. Nice. I will not put my address and phone number up here. It is my professional opinion that it is never a good idea to give a pedophile and potential child molester your personal information. i have kidlets, so... is everyone?

At 8:03 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

The symbols changed from MS Word to the post PREVIEW.

What did I do wrong?

At 8:04 PM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

Hej Ike!
I was wondering if anyone would notice Marj. BTW "skithuspapper" is "shit-house paper".

I'm glad I used "preview", I was just about to post the ® code stuff.

At 8:05 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

fatwa -

It depends entirely on where/what you are doing. For the purposes of blogger entries, either is fine. Copy and paste of the symbols really won't work everwhere, but the codes will.

So, yes but with rules.

At 8:05 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


I'm glad my bro was able to walk you through the recovery. Sleep! Sleep is good!

At 8:05 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Teh© tricks® I’ve learned from the Gerbil Mafia™ are just great!

At 8:06 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Heya Hosedragger - glad you got some sleep.

At 8:06 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Hey, Hose -

I'm okay, albeit tired; I'll probably crash shortly

Not surprised you slept all day after your prodigious output yesterday. Man...unbelievable!

At 8:07 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

I haven't scored it...waiting for someone like you or Hose to lay on the tune.
As it is, it's just verse...or as Dad would say, just BS.
BTW, the way, the tea leaves..? Your insight on NPD today was, as they say, spot on. Or in Texas, right in the saddle.

At 8:07 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

(and Joe breathes a sigh of relief that his bro didn't embarass him)

At 8:08 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Copy works for me. I had to use special characters instead of "INSERT" symbol characters. Got it now by golly.

At 8:08 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

fatwa -

on web pages. not in the computer world entirely, but on web pages.

I really need to figure out how to be clear out loud rather than thinking 50% of the conversation at people. You know?

At 8:09 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

Fatwa, Hawk:

What Brenda said. There are other ways to write those guys out, but not all html is equal, depending on the browser, the style sheet, all that crap I hate. Using the ampersand, numberscratch, and digits works across all platforms, which is why I use it, because, mainly, I'm lazy, and I like to know only one thing as opposed to 50 things.

At 8:12 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Naw...Pet is da MOAB (mother of all bombs) I just wish MS didn't jack things with their updates. I thought I screwed something up and was trying to fix it. Then I saw the little "update" logo when it finally worked it's way through the sluggishness and remembered that it does that. But the comp kept turning off from lack of use, so it never finished last night. Hopefully I adjusted it so it will in the Admin of Safe

At 8:15 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

paddy -

"skithuspapper" is "shit-house paper"

I love this site. I would probably never have learned that otherwise.

Can we get a phonetic spelling? I'd love to be able to say that to unsuspecting friends. I'll tell them it means 'light beer'.

At 8:15 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Thanks hosedragger - and thanks for not getting (too) panicky. It also helps that when I give instructions, you ably followed through.

Oh my lard, Hosedragger. I haven't had Chartreuse in years. The last bottle I had was given to me by a PhD engineer. I won't go into the details of that evening. Suffice it to say that I woke up the next mornin' in somebody's ramshackle greenhouse in a large cardboard packing box upon which was a bumper sticker which read, "I Only Boogie With The Best".

Good times.

I'm sorry for being more than usually dense - I'm pretty sure I managed to confuse or insult at least 3 people and I really didn't mean to, sorry to the offended, and I'm going to drag my self off to bed now.

Have a great evening, all!

At 8:29 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Let's see...I just went and read the part about her being CCFCCP and posted this. I seriously doubt it will appear.

Gee, let me think...I have already told you many times as well as given you the link to the address of the hospital you should check yourself into.

i told you you need a regimin of Valium, Zoloft, and Lithium. However, I also have told you that you are a coward. You are too much of a coward to answer any of the questions I or anyone else has presented to you. You are a coward that attacks children and feels they are "fair game", you are too much of a coward to post any and all comments written to this thing you call a blog...

and you are far too much of a coward to go admit you are wrong, you are sick, you have wronged many innocent people and finally allow yourself to get the desperate medical help you not only need but require.

You are a coward.

And who do you think you are fooling. You don't have any friends anymore. Just scared people you bully into talking to you "or else".

No...the gif is that of "Silent Bob" (Kevin Smith) who is a phenominally funny and talented writer/director of such classics as "Mallrats", Clerks", "Dogma" and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back"

hosedragger - eh, I feel a little sympathy for the town (it IS famous for where Jesse James got shot), but NONE for that bastion of knee-jerk liberalism.

Brenda and Lunarpuff have seen my pic though. It isn't THAT far off...cept short hair and no beard

Wow Joe Good link. Those pictures were amazing.

About a month ago, I was driving home from main post here at Bragg. The way I take goes through our Restricted Area (R5311 for you pilot types) and a big storm started with small hail. There were about four car plus me on the road and as soon as it started we all made a bee-line for a small shack with a wooden awning on one of the small arms ranges. I got there first and their cars were just getting pounded. The dagger eyes were per..rity scary. True story.

Nope...Puter went into "sleep" mode again and there will be nothing I can do about it save for staying up all night making sure it stays on and downloading/installing

I finally got through all the comments on the teh debster's post about sanity (not so much)...she let almost all of them through!

At 8:49 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


It's good to get there first. Try getting hailed on in the first hour of a 7 hour bike ride in mid-30's temperature. Ooh, that was messed up for the next 2 hours.

At 8:51 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Done! Finally got everything moved over to blogspot (such as it was).

At 8:53 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


I had over 70 posts that I had to migrate. Fun!

Dude - photobucket is sooo cool for the doubleposting.

At 8:58 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


It works. Don't ever use blogger's photo posting tool. Doesn't work when other people try to link to them. Permissions violations.

hose -

thanks - not concussed, mostly neck and shoulders and arm - should have said head first, but didn't wack actual head. I just have a not entirely pleasant reaction to some pain medicine. It works but not all fun like recreational drugs.

I'm just being pitiful, anyway. I'll be fine in a bit.

Really really off to bed while I can still drag myself up there.

no hurry to migrate, but there's a new thread up.

At 9:00 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

Good night, again, Brenda!

At 9:00 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Ice for 15-20 minutes, off for two hours Bren

At 9:00 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

Dude - yep, real URLs for everyone to access.

At 9:01 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Night owl thread - bump.

At 9:01 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

At 9:56 PM, Blogger Denny Crane said...

Huh? Did somebody page me?

Been out getting the boat ready for the long weekend. What did I miss?

Denny Confused!

At 2:30 AM, Blogger Sulla said...

You didn't miss anything, Denny.

I just like hearing it, or saying it.

It was that or "Fatwa Arbuckle!"

But for that one, the moment must be just right.
