I'm sure I am the very last to hear this slice of "teh funny"® but it needs to be on the front page.

FATWA FATWA FATWA!!!!

Update: Fatwa's original intro:

If you're in the mood for some top-notch television entertainment this evening, check out this ultra-low-budget radio promo for a couple of shows which might be of interest to VBSers.

(You may have to scroll down a bit on the linked page and/or wait a few seconds for the file to load.)

CAUTION: THIS IS NOT WORK-FRIENDLY!

You have been warned.

For some reason, the conversion to mp3 made the spot sound a little "tubby". Plus I don't own the right type of mic for voiceovers (I'm more a writer/producer when it comes to radio, anyhow) and am getting over a cold. Feh.

A little mid-range roll-off and/or high-end boost might improve audibility; I hope teh funny® comes through anyway.

Cheers to the Minister of Propaganda! Huzzah!



(I'm first, i'm first, i'm first) Fatwa doesn't count as first cause he's first in a much more important way)

Time for my day job now, peeps.

I can't believe I typed that! I will not use "peeps" ever again in writing or speach. Must keep some basic standards in the face of so much unfettered fun.

Nice songs folks. I like the 12 days of...

Have a pleasant evening everyone and please, please, pray for rain in Oregon. I moved here for the rain and I don't think I can take many more of these sunny days. You know, Seasonal Affective Disorder must work both ways. The evil sun relentlessly beating down without respite is just...well, evil.

ok, peeps are ok if you can put them in the microwave! Hi Joe

Hey, hey, hey...I haven't even been offered, much less awarded that title. And I'd have to know a lot more about what the position would entail, first.

Like, do I get a really natty uniform? 401k? Dental and vision?

 
At 5:11 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Evenin', Joe!

Fatwa:

Here is your official DHD offer of the post of "Minister of Propaganda"


natty uniform? Whatever you provide is fine.

401k? How about a 401q instead?

Dental and vision? Only if you have no teeth (teafizz) and no eyes.

 
At 5:13 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

Hey Fatwa:

Isn't the uniform you get with Mojo Jojo cool enough? I mean, a cape and everything!

She has a new comment under her first post, directing her over here.

Hey all,

Hawk here at work seeing what you're up to.

 
At 5:26 PM, Blogger SBH said...

Well lads, now I really am going to go to work. Thanks for the fun and quaff some whatever for me.

Fatwa -- Brooks Brother's and long hair. I'd stick with that.

 
At 5:28 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Fatwa,

Your stuff was a scream. Very funny!

 
At 5:32 PM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

Rabbit - yes, but she is too much of a coward (Coward! Vile, fermented potatoe squeezin's drinkin' Coward!) to post my version of Molly Malone (patent pending, keep out of reach of children, store in a cool dry place, do not operate heavy machinery, objects in mirror may be smaller than in your mind, I've never been this drunk before, of course I'll respect you in the morning).

Here is your official DHD offer of the post of "Minister of Propaganda"

Sir, I am very proud and honored to accept the position with the terms you have offered.

Respectfully,
F. Arbuckle
Minister of Propaganda, DHD

Woo freakin' hoo!

I gotta call my Mom...

Hawk -

Cheers!

Truth be told, I had a lot of fun making it. (Except for the fact recording the dialog pretty much requires three eyes.)

Joe -

The cape is definitely a minsterial fashion statement. Ditto boots. I shall have to ponder the other details.

(Much as I loathe fascists of any stripe, I have to acknowledge they're snappy dressers. The Italian fascists had those totally cool double-breasted suits. And SS uniforms were pretty bitchin' too.)

SBH -

Point well-taken.

This will require much more thought.

Fatwa -

You need gold braid for your epaulettes, too. Lots and lots of gold braid. And shiny buttons. And knee high riding boots.

That's hott!

Just caught up on the last thread - what I love about you folks (besides you fabulous personalities and mad, mad poetical skills) is the great info swap.

Looks like Deb is trying to show that she can restrain herself - but try as she might, teh crazee is leaking out in teh comments. . .

if you had to have a license in order to drive the innertubes, she would flunk the written part

Fatwa -

Take a look at my blog - a lovely uniform. Just add the riding boots and cape, and you're good to go!

Banana republics everywhere will tremble in your strangly glittery shadow.

 
At 6:16 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Ducky -

Good one!

Epaulettes are fine for dressy occasions; not sure about lots of (or even any) gold braids. And the boots must be shiny...very shiny.

That's hott!

BrendaK, please! It's difficult to maintain the dignity of my office when you say such things. (Perhaps we could discuss this later over a quiet drink.

And I've some etchings which are simply exquisite; you must see them.

 
At 6:23 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

BrendaK -

Checked out your blog; I just don't think all of the filligree is me. (And remember, I'm footing the bill for all of this stuff.)

I really prefer the functional, basic black Darth Vader look. Always a classic, and one can easily add a simple strand of pearls for a more elegant look.

 
At 6:27 PM, Blogger Sinner said...

Oh yes! Pearl inlay of a happy face on the back of the cape, it is "propaganda" after all!

 
At 6:31 PM, Blogger Ducky said...

Yes, Fatwa, but - couldn't you please consider a sash? An understated sash conveys that you are "on duty" as they say.

I just don't recall whether it is supposed to go over the right shoulder or the left shoulder. . . .

 
At 6:33 PM, Blogger Ducky said...

sbh,

I am with you, with regard to this protracted solar seige we've been experiencing here in Oregon. I just keep telling myself, "It's only temporary."

I do love the evenings - no wind, perfect temperature, telling Frisch stories out on the deck. . .

good times!

Ducky

 
At 6:34 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Pearl inlay of a happy face on the back of the cape...

Sinner -

That was deeply disturbing.

Funny as hell, but still somehow disturbing.

 
At 6:35 PM, Blogger Ducky said...

*siege

dang, this wine is affecting my spelling

 
At 6:41 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Fatwa -

Ok, I pouted for a few minutes but I'm all better now.

If you don't want to go all South American Military Coup chic, well, austere black with a pearl happy face makes a powerful fashion statement too.

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

Ducky -

Thanks for your suggestion of a sash; I fear that it may be too "hall monitor-y".

BrendaK -

...austere black with a pearl happy face...

First Sinner, then you...hey! Did somebody spike the punch again?

That is so not cool!

 
At 6:49 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Ducky -

You have a dock? You lucky duck.

 
At 6:52 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Ducky -

Oh, deck. The spiked punch is making me dyspepsic. lexic.

Whoohoo!

 
At 6:54 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Hey, everybody -

You do know we're trying to give fashion tips to a guy in a purple cape and a fez, don't you?

I'm just saying, is all.

 
At 6:54 PM, Blogger Rabbit said...

Have ya'll been over there to see the comment aimed at Hosedragger?

 
At 6:56 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit -

Which ones? Did she do something new?

 
At 6:59 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

You'll need warrior badges...

Airborne..
Air Assault..
Hard hat diver..

And a bunch of medals (not just the ribbons, but the actual medals)
dangling from your epauletted dress jacket, oh, oh and a croix de guerre…and scrambled eggs on the visor of your dress cap.

 
At 7:06 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit -

Typical. Hose would rescue anyone that needed it - regardless of any other consideration. That's what makes him what he is.

The 'commenter' is unable to recognize such a person. What a coward.

 
At 7:12 PM, Blogger SouthernFriedYankee said...

Man, I go out for awhile and miss
all the fun!

Fatwa that was awesome!

Herr Minister of Propaganda!

Well, not really a fez...

...but I see your point.

Hawk -

Even though this is all in good fun, must insist on leaving such decorations to those who have legitimately earned them.

However, I quite like the idea of rows of fake medals; you've given me an idea...


SFY (if I may be so familiar) -

¡Gracias!

NEW THREAD!

Fatwa,

You guys on this site all deserve medals for the way you support the military and guys like Hose and cops and all. No crap. No kidding. Hell, I'd design one befitting what you guys are all about.

But about the footware. I think the spit shined riding boots might be too much. Maybe paten-leader low-quarters.
