I put this on Twitter yesterday but it’s too blogworthy not to post here:



The protest is against the construction of a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings that would replace the Metrodome, which has apparently been eaten.

A “pro-stadium construction” argument that might win that person over is “You can’t eat footballs, but stadium hot dogs are freakin’ awesome!

    That one sure doesn't appear to be starving. Must be a sluggish thyroid, eh?

    I'm waiting for the day when morbid obesity (a.k.a. lateral giantism) becomes a protected class. In this case, must have swallowed too many footballs, or stadiums.

    Apparently, if one belongs to a 'welfare rights committee' there are instructions for locating the nearest refrigerator, but not for being gainfully employed – perhaps at the newly built stadium?

    There's pro and con arguments for publicly financed white elephants – er, I mean sports stadiums – but I've never been able to understand the implied argument for public housing on that man and/or woman's sign.

    "Lateral giantism", ha ha, I love that !

    You`re absolutely right Doug; stadium dogs ARE awesome; especially late in September when the dogs have been on the rotisserie since June ! Mmmmmmmm, there`s that great "SNAP" to `em ! And when you send someone to the vender for dogs, be sure to tell them, "If the condiment ain`t on the counter, don`t put it on the dog !" (for the Nicks out there, that means, "With Everything")

    Those signs must have been from the same factory that used to produce those "You can't hug your child with nuclear arms!" signs.

    Resolution for everyone: Build it with welfare money.


    Newt says such as these will have to take classes to get retrained and or lose welfare. Sign might as well say: "I'm voting for Zero."

    Rebuild!? Don't be ridiculous. There doesn't appear to be anything 'wrong' with that stadium!

    Imagine the cheerleaders practicing when the roof collapsed? Instant pom-pom cicles! I'm a go, it's been around forever but as Michelle cautions, keep that mom evil eye on those nasty PLA's! ( Project Labor Agreements ) that put competition on ice and grease labor union big-whigs every step of the way.

    Housing before 'stadiums'? I lived at Comiskey Park from 3rd grade to jr. year and I turned out pretty normal?

    "Housing"?! As in, free government Housing, off the backs of taxpayers?
    How about "Jobs"? As in, lower taxes and reduced regulation to promote growth?
    Then you can provide your own 'housing'.

    But, but that plays into Zero`s hands …… "Republicans want you to be on your own !"

    Said Biden: "I am intent on reelecting Barack Obama president of the United States of America. The rest will take care of itself."

    WTF/LOL, is that like some kinda' Mutually Assured Destruction vow? Sheriff Joe tells Ann Curry he won't rule out a run in 2016! ( Then told her she ain't half bad lookin' neither! Right toots? ) Jeez Joe, lay off the hooch.

    Doug, we need to create a new "What if CHENEY said that!" blog division. The Left would've been whipped into a frenzy that The Right Wingers were planning "a total militarization of the West plunging us headlong into nuclear destruuuuuction!"
