    Is that ad really suggesting beer for babies as a pick me up? Really? I’m trying to picture my 8 month old tipping one back..nope, doesn’t work. Too much foam in the bottle’s nipple

  3. R.D. Walker says:

    Nah, they are saying it improves the quality of breast milk. Seriously.

  4. MadBrad says:

    I think the message here is that women who drink beer like to have somebody sucking on their titties. It’s called “Truth in Advertising”.

  5. notamobster says:

    Kids were smarter back then. I prefer my beer to be delivered via boobies, too!

    I had a really wierd dream last night and I’m having a hard time interpreting it or understanding what triggered it. Seriously.

    I dreamed that RD won some kind of contest to go “Party with Prince”. This would be Prince as in Purple Rain, not actual royalty. This may in some way be related to a true story of a friend of mine who was interviewed by Stars and Stripes back in the 80’s where the correspondant was collecting stories from Soldiers on the wierdest thing that ever happened to them. My friend from Chicago claimed to have won a contest conducted by a local radio station called “Party with the Pope”, but that is another story.

    Anyway, RD and a friend were invited to party with Prince for the weekend at Paisley Park. RD chose to take me with him. What was really wierd is that Prince was all excited that RD was the person who won the contest and claimed that he always wanted to meet him. I was kind of pissed off because I’M the big Prince fan but he didn’t act very excited that I was there for the big party.

    I woke up shortly after we got to Paisley Park. That’s too bad. The rest of the dream would have made a great story.

  7. R.D. Walker says:

    That is a weird dream. It would have made a hell of a lot more sense if Prince had won a contest to party with RD.

  8. MadBrad says:

    In the dream he was going on and on about how much he likes people from Iowa. I understand that Prince really likes pancakes. Maybe he should think about making it down for the July 4th Firemans pancake Breakfast.

  9. Bman says:

    I think it’s weird you dream about Prince. He’s a weirdo.

  10. R.D. Walker says:

    In fairness, Brad is a little weird too.

  11. MadBrad says:

    I hesitated to post that here. Maybe it is that recently while dragging the net for something Revoworthy I saw how Prince recently stated that “The internet is SO dead” and in the back of my mind I’ve wondered what RDs rebuttal would be. Look, he can make a guitar sing like Jimi Hendrix, even better. He can be as wierd as it gets but in his older age he’s gotten religion so he’s cool with me.

  12. R.D. Walker says:

    You know, Raspberry Beret came out when Brad and I were in the 82nd Airborne. It pissed off a lot of the more serious paratroopers but I was just cynical enough to dig it. (We wore maroon berets in the 82nd. It was our trademark.)

    I never cared for the beret anyway. As headgear goes, it is worse than worthless.

  13. R.D. Walker says:

    Air Force Brat may on to something with this whole meat missile thing.

    Did a Man Mysteriously Fall from the Sky In New Jersey?

    I am thinking it was another, but less fortuitously timed, Jet Blue fight attendant walk out.

  14. vanagram says:

    “Global Warming” is out.

    “Global Climate Disruption” is in.

    Apparently, this way the libotards can point to every spring thunderstorm or patch of hazy fog as evidence of ‘climate disruption’.

    Another good catch phrase? Hmmmm. How about “Weather”. I hear they have a whole channel dedicated to it these days.

  15. R.D. Walker says:

    About 8 million years ago Chicago was under a mile of ice and the Mediterranean Sea completely dried up. Bone fucking dry. Now that was some serious global climate disruption. How in the hell are they going to blame my F-150 for that shit?

    I remember the cartoon in Playboy way back in the 1960’s. Of course I bought it for the stories. In the cartoon, a bunch of advertising types were around a conference table. The words under it read; ” I think we have a winner!” The picture on the wall was a stein of beer with the caption: “Blatz Beer; It doesn’t make you puke so bad.”

  17. Locke n Load says:

    WTF NoDak, snow already??

  18. R. D. Walker says:

    Clearly a case of global climate dysentery… or something.

  19. Bman says:

    Where the hell did you see snow, LnL??

  20. Locke n Load says:

    radio talking about snow falling in some KFYR listening area. (RYDER AREA?) hard freezes 2nite and rain snow mix as far south as bismarck. at least 5 or 6 towns reporting 🙂

    i’m rolling SE out of harvey right now.

  21. Locke n Load says:

    global climate dysentery? yeah, that about describes Jamestown at moment 🙂

  22. Bman says:

    Ah. I like that area of ND. When you drive through Carrington, honk your horn for me. I was just there last week. And watch for salamanders on the road.

  23. Bman says:

    Hmmm…Jamestown is the home of the ND State “Hospital”….Your mental health feel OK LnL?

  24. Locke n Load says:

    beautiful terrain out here, yes. are all these hills moraine or sand?

  25. Bman says:

    by the way LnL…1100AM, has Sean Hannity on right now. Don’t care to listen to the guy much, but it will give you something to take your mind off of the drive

  26. Locke n Load says:

    deirrious perhaps, sleet has me baffled. then again i’ll be in fla in 3.5 days 🙂
    tuned in, thanks!

  27. Bman says:

    not sure LnL….the area was covered by Lake Agassiz…

  28. Locke n Load says:

    damn, the ND sunflower crop is HUGE this year

  29. Bman says:

    Sunflowers and sugarbeets…as far as the eye can see….some corn too

  30. Locke n Load says:

    Shit! FIVE D’s of Dodgeball, doy. Can’t believe you guys didn’t call me on that.

  31. Slaphappypap says:

    I just watched Real Time with Billy Maher. Robert Reich was on talking down Wall Street CEO’s. He failed to mention he was a Wall Street ass whore. Scumbag that he is anyway.

  32. Air Force Brat says:

    R.D. — re the “mystery meat missile”: I was convinced that my theory of people falling into and out of inter-dimensional wormholes had been proven once and for all, but then you hadda go and burst my bubble. I’m gonna cry copiously now, you big meanie. 😀

  33. R.D. Walker says:

    Study this closely AFB:

  34. Locke n Load says:

    Huh. I detected some ‘art’ at the end of that clip.

    Damn but I loved Gilliam when I was a kid. Believe it or not he’s from MINNESOTA. Actually that explains a lot..

    A conversation with Gilliam about Gilliam. An earlier version of Brad??

    I became terrified that I was going to be a full-time, bomb-throwing terrorist if I stayed [in the U.S.] because it was the beginning of really bad times in America. It was ’66–’67, it was the first police riot in Los Angeles. […] In college my major was political science, so my brain worked that way. […] And I drove around this little English Hillman Minx—top down—and every night I’d be hauled over by the cops. Up against the wall, and all this stuff. They had this monologue with me; it was never a dialogue. It was that I was a long-haired drug addict living off some rich guy’s foolish daughter. And I said, “No, I work in advertising. I make twice as much as you do.” Which is a stupid thing to say to a cop. […]

    And it was like an epiphany. I suddenly felt what it was like to be a black or Mexican kid living in L.A. Before that, I thought I knew what the world was like, I thought I knew what poor people were, and then suddenly it all changed because of that simple thing of being brutalized by cops. And I got more and more angry and I just felt, I’ve got to get out of here—I’m a better cartoonist than I am a bomb maker. That’s why so much of the U.S. is still standing.

    Now THAT was an inter-dimensional lip if I ever saw one.

  36. Air Force Brat says:

    Shit. “Clip”, not “lip”.

  37. Slaphappypap says:

    Many shots of Vodka tonight with my sister and her friends. Her friends found out we were conservative. “YOUR CONSERVATIVE??!!!” “YOU KNOW THEY STOP FUNDING FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS???!!”

    My sister: Union teachers should do a better job pretending to teach.

    I’m soooo proud.

  38. Locke n Load says:

    Your sister rocks man. Hope she’s armed, comments like that in Chicago….

  39. Locke n Load says:

    hey Bman, this means its been off and on for 3 days.

  40. R.D. Walker says:

    I just watched the pilot of the new Hawaii 5-0 on CBS. Now I don’t watch much TV; no time. Feeding this blog is like owning livestock. Still, I was a fan of the old 5-0 so I watched. Very different but I give the first episode two thumbs up. It fairly kicked ass. Book ‘im Dano.

  41. Locke n Load says:

    have to take your word for it. Unlike most of you I watch a grand total of about 3 hours a month. Would the new 5-0 be on broadcast or cable nets?

  42. Locke n Load says:

    Oh, and yes, Brad is still a madman if you were wondering. Damn but I love meeting up for beers with him 🙂 That boy is indeed one of a kind, we’re all lucky to know him. Just don’t EVER trust his interpretation of “truck friendly” if you need to drive a high profile vehicle to his house.

  43. MadBrad says:

    Damn guy, you sure know how to make a guy with a hangover feel better. As for the “Madman” stuff, it takes one to know one. The circus comes to town once a year so everyone can get a dose of me but YOU are one of a kind. Don’t be holding out on us when it comes to those border stories.

    Here’s a copy of that prayer we were talking about last night. It’s one of my favorites. Not everyone wants to pray this prayer. I suppose it is that they know that God is always listening…

    Give me oh Lord what you have left.

    Give me those things which others never ask of You.

    I don’t ask You for rest, or tranquility. Not that of the spirit, the body, or the mind. I don’t ask You for wealth, or success, or even health. All those things are asked of You so much Lord, that you can’t have any left to give.

    Give me instead Lord what You have left.

    Give me what others don’t want.

    I want uncertainty and doubt.

    I want torment and battle.

    I ask that You give them to me now and forever Lord, so I can be sure to always have them, because I won’t always have the strength to ask again.

    Give me also the courage, the energy, and the spirit to face them.

    I ask You these things Lord, because I can’t ask them of myself.

    -Author unknown.

    This is most typically known as the Prayer of the French Paratrooper and is adopted by their Foreign Legion.

  44. MadBrad says:

    I’m also looking forward to the day when I will have my computer issues at home fixed so I can get back to writing regularly.

  45. R.D. Walker says:

    I wish I was in Jacksonville last night with you two nutjobs and the ghost of Leonard Skinner…

  46. MadBrad says:

    I must say here and now that if we do NOT have a Real Revo mass party throwdown at a time and place to be determined we will all pass through this life without knowing just what a special group of freaks we really are and that would be VERY sad.

  47. Locke n Load says:

    Couldn’t agree more. And you left the chicken wings in my truck man,lol. Those were supposed to be your morning hangover food 🙂

  48. sortahwitte says:

    MB, my brother, just name a date and place.

  49. MadBrad says:

    The Revopalooza Planning Committee will be making an announcement as soon as some preliminaries are complete.

  50. MadBrad says:

    Hey JIM22, thanks for the keyboard that I have just been informed is inbound! That saves me a trip and some money and I greatly appreciate it.

  51. Locke n Load says:

    aww shit!! wish i had my camera ready..
    bill on nb I95 in Va:
    God 10%
    Government 50%

  52. Van-a-gram says:

    RD– your “Bodies Falling Out of Windows” clip clearly contained a Rule VIOLATION at the end.

    I take this as free pass for whatever I may choose to post next….

  53. R.D. Walker says:

    Oh for Christ sake. What the hell pornography are you so desperate to post?

  54. R.D. Walker says:

    Duh. Tell us something we don’t know.

    Live in the middle of the county and think you’re missing out? According to a new survey from Men’s Health, the Midwest is best at having sex. The survey ranked Indianapolis, IN; Columbus, OH; Fort Wayne, IN; Cincinnati, OH; and Salt Lake City, UT as the most sexually satisfied cities in the country based on frequency of sex acts.

  55. notamobster says:

    That’s only because Chicagoans aren’t satisfied by the fucking they’ve been getting for a hundred years!

  56. notamobster says:

    The results are skewed because unions have been fucking the midwest for 70 years!

    I got jokes!
