Ladies first

November 13, 2006 at 12:37 am (Uncategorized)

king2_i.jpgYou’ve come a long way, baby. You’ve entered the work force at the executive level, you’re all over the senate, the armed forces and the boxing ring, and sooner or later, one of you will be in the oval office. Consider this my sucking up. Equality is marvelous. Especially on the sides of dusty roads in espanol.

MADRID (Reuters) – A Spanish town council has vowed to banish sexism from street signage by demanding half of all road signs and traffic lights show female figures with skirts and ponytails.

There’s not a man in the world who will argue with that. Every time we see a yield sign, we’ll think of Mary Ann, the hot one from Gilligan’s island.

I’m all for feminism as long as it doesn’t mess up my day. I work for several women, list several others as personal heroes and fear more than a few. But if I open the door for a lady and she goes off about chauvenism, I’m tempted to let the door slam on her uptight ass. Hey, I’d open the door for a man with an arm load of books too, Scaggy McEstrogen!

Here’s to women and their rise to power. Evolution and Andrew Dice Clay be damned!


  1. Nadine said,

    Ahhh, it’s a victory won for vagina’s everywhere! Rejoice and show your support!


  2. LaFlamme said,

    Yeah, it’s a real hole in one.

  3. AO said,

    It’s not only a good thing for the woman but, also good for the crossdressers.

  4. Richie said,

    Damn ! I go away for a long week-end and what do I find when I get back; strange and exciting sexual behaviour !! Flamer; that camisole & bustier really does something for you ! I don’t know what, but it does something. AO; there’s BIIIG money in providing for that niche market. No, really !! The internet has made all sorts of this stuff possible and available; and it can all be done from the safety of your home. Ask Flamer about that adult “baby” care place he goes to . . .

  5. K2 said,

    Bitches, all of ’em. Well, most of ’em. Nah, all of ’em.

  6. Weasel Jr. said,

  7. Mike said,

  8. K2 said,

    That’s me being obnoxious in #5. I got listed as spam. Oppression.

  9. K2 said,

  10. Linda said,

    That photo’s from deep in the archives, eh? I needed another cup of coffee this a.m. before I could process it.

    “Rise to power” — I mean, you guys were all babies back then, but I remember when it happened. It wasn’t all that interesting at the time really, neither of them was very appealing. Of course that’s just my opinion.

    Mark, you must have been tempted to pull up a picture of Mary Ann again for this story, right?

  11. LaFlamme said,

    Okay, so maybe I’ve posted Mary Ann photos in here a time or ten.

  12. Dan said,

    Mark you are an ass. You could not wait one day to post that possible information on Gerry Poirier? You had to cause more heartache for his wife on the day he is buried? Your timing stinks, it matches your reporting, if you call spreading rumors reporting.

  13. LaFlamme said,

    Dan, is there a better source than a police affidavit? If we wanted to write solely on rumor, we would have published this story last week. I don’t get to pick the timing of news any more than I get to pick the topics and circumstances. Thanks for writing.

  14. K2 said,

    No, Mark, you should censor contents of the report to appease Dan. Don’t you see?!?
    Everybody has skeletons in the closet. Time will tell if the allegations are truthful.

  15. AO said,

    Dan, Mark is a REPORTER. He REPORTS the news. The EDITORS decide when and what stories get posted. Not him. He’s just doing his job. Now, do your’s and go back to Dunkin Donuts so you can come back here and report to us on how many cops are hanging out there.

  16. Dan said,

    You picked the timing. It makes for a greater public reaction to post it on line the day of the funeral. Remember NOTHING was on line about the death of the deputy or the shooting in Auburn, until several days AFTER. You chose to post this today, just to cause greater heartache. But, whatever excuse allows to you sleep.

  17. AO said,

    Why would he want to cause greater heartache?

  18. LaFlamme said,

    Yeah, Dan. What do I get out of another family’s heartache? That’s the most inane thing I’ve heard in… well shit, as long as I can remember.
    I don’t post the news on the website. I write for the print media. What they do with my stories in the meantime is up to them.

  19. Linda said,

    Yes, sure, we all buy it that Mark’s goal in life is to cause the maximum heartache. I bet he wakes up every morning thinking, who can I screw over today? What HEARTACHE can I inflict? Get a grip, Dan. If you don’t like it that the story ran today, that’s a nice little snippet of compassion. But don’t blame Mark. You obviously haunt at least the SJ, and probably other news sources too. Are you prepared to give it up? If it IS dirty laundry, we own it.

  20. LaFlamme said,

    Well said, Linda. I do appreciate the compassion contained in the rant. It IS unfortunate that an already sad situation is compounded by emerging details. Why Dan is so desperate to find someone beyond the key principals in the case to blame is a wonder.

  21. AO said,

    It’s Dan. Enough said.

  22. LaFlamme said,

    A hush falls over the crowd…

  23. Mainetarr said,

    You’re an ignorant asshole Dan, you really are. Since you seem to be such close friends with “Gerry”, why didn;t you turn his pedophile ass in before he was shot?

  24. AO said,

    I think Dan’s taken his ignorant ass back to DD.

  25. Mainetarr said,

    Gee Dan, how can you sleep knowing you caused his death by not turning him in? You’re a fucking moron.

  26. LaFlamme said,

    The whole Poirier case really is sordid and sad for the entire family. Potential victims and victimizers aside, what about all the kids and others who witnessed that amazing supernova of violence?

  27. Mainetarr said,

    No kidding. Dan is one of those bandwagoners…you know the type. Just because the guy is dead he had to throw in the “He was such a nice guy…” schtick. How about “too bad for the family of this creep. The kids were molested, the wife is a widow, and the entire family watched him die.” Go have another donut fatass….

  28. Anonymous said,

    Yeah, that eploding bottel of wine at the table, then the realization of what actually happened. Can you spell T-R-A-U-M-A?

  29. AO said,

    That’s going to traumatize them for the rest of their lives. Poor little kids.

  30. Dan said,

    As the schoolyard bully has his gang, LaFlamme calls on his posse to defend him. Sorry, but it was your story, your responsiblity. Writing and posting this story on the day of the funeral is unconsciencable, inexcusible and unnecessary.

    As for why you would enjoy creating more anguish to the family? Your penchant for the macabre, violent and cruel is well documented. If you don’t understand it, then no one does.

  31. LaFlamme said,

    Dan, I try to resist calling you an idiot. I really do. But you’re an idiot. Are you really so dim you don’t understand the meaning of the word “news?” Has the news ever waited for an appropriate time to publish pertinent facts in a high profile case? Should they? You’re entitled to an opinion on that certainly. But to blame one reporter or one media organization for doing their jobs the way they’re expected to do them, well… see the above part about being an idiot.

  32. Linda said,

    Macabre? Yes. Violent and cruel? I don’t see it. I’m not part of anybody’s posse but I know a kind person when I find one. Dan, you are a shit-stirrer par excellance and if anyone needs their head read over why they do what they do — it’s you.

  33. Mainetarr said,

    Dan, I wasn’t summoned to come to Mark’s defense. It just amazes me that someone who thinks they are so intelligent can be so ignorant. Do you actually think he picks when stories run? DId you not read anything anyone wrote? That is the editors job. If you are so unhappy, why not write a letter to the EDITOR, not a letter to the REPORTER? Because you’re a moron, that’s why. Actually, I just think you are trying to look stupid to attempt to wind everyone up. No one can be that stupid.

  34. AO said,

    Dan, You SHOULD write a letter to the editor. But, I’m guessing, knowing who you are and how you tuck your tail between your legs and run, you won’t.

    Mark, you have a posse? Wow. Can I join? Do we get to wear cowboy hats?

  35. LaFlamme said,

    Bling for everyone, yo.

  36. Mainetarr said,

    AO, that must be one long tail he has to get it all the way around his fat ass to tuck it.

  37. AO said,


  38. Mainetarr said,

    nice visual huh? Sorry about that…..

  39. AO said,

    It’s okay. I didn’t need my dinner anyway.

  40. LaFlamme said,

    I wonder if Dan has popped into the SJ to check out the comments on the story. Very well expressed opinions in there.

  41. AO said,

    I think he has. Under an assumed name…again.

    I’ve known the Poirer family for years. I spent holidays with them, and celebrated birthdays with them. They are a good bunch of people, and I highly doubt these accusations made by the “wounded” son. We as a society let people get away with way too much, by claiming insanity, rape, molestation, ect… Claim you are crazy, or you’ve been hurt, and you’ll get away with just about anything.

  42. LaFlamme said,

    Could be. That STILL sounds more rational than our Dan, though.

  43. AO said,

    Where’d he go, anyway? And, yes, it may not be him. He didn’t call you an ass.

  44. LaFlamme said,

    Well, the discussion over there is, rightfully, about the story, not about the people who presented it. As the saying goes: “It is the story, not he who writes it.”
    Or some such shit.

  45. AO said,

    So, if miller WAS Dan, he wouldn’t have thought about the story, just who wrote it.

  46. LaFlamme said,

    Right. Blame the messenger and whatnot.

  47. AO said,

    Makes sense.

  48. jarheaddoc said,

    I am seldom the voice of reason or calmness on this blog, but I will choose to be one tonight. My father, bless his dead alcoholic soul, occassionally made a shitpot full of sense, and I will apply that here with a couple sayings he had:

    Everyone has 20/20 vision through his asshole.

    A dog smells his own shit first.

    Consider the source.

  49. LaFlamme said,

    Yeah. And that’s fine. It’s just good to have ol blustery Dan back.

  50. jarheaddoc said,

    Maybe Dan is jealous of mark”s being named reporter of the year, whatever the hell it was, and he (Dan) was passed over for something like Chief Slug of the Year or Master of the Snail Trail.

  51. LaFlamme said,

    Ah, he’s yapping at the web administrator, too. “How dare you guys print the news” and so on. Seriously, he should have all that stupid bottled.

  52. AO said,

    Dunkin Donuts Stool Warmer of the Year.

  53. LaFlamme said,

    Wait, wasn’t it asswipe of the year? I’ll have to take another look at the plaque.

  54. AO said,

    I thought it was pinky flipper of the year.

  55. Linda said,

    Back away from the plaque, Mark. It’s probably both.

  56. LaFlamme said,

    Pinky flipping asswipe of the year. I’m *sniff* honored. I’d like to thank the academy…

  57. Linda said,

    Hey jarheaddoc, you old voice of reason and calmness, you! I had a string of veiled jibes ready for you but the tribe went another way, you know?

  58. Bobbie said,

    Apt sayings when they are applied to Dan, JD.

    MT, I have to agree with AO about that image that you put in everyone’s head: EEEWW!

    And no, I wasn’t “called upon” to defend Mark at all. Heck, I’m halfway across the country and no one knows my number, so how in the heck could someone “call upon” me to defend him over an article that the editors saw fit to run today?

    Mark has a possee?! I want in! I’ll even offer to show everyone some cool roping tricks that would make Dan think twice about insulting someone. Then again, I don’t know if we could get a rope that big.

  59. AO said,

    Like Mark said: Bling for everyone. You get a cool lariat, Bobbie. I want a pair of spurs.

  60. LaFlamme said,

    Okay, I’m making a list…

  61. Mainetarr said,

    K2, you wanna spam sandwich? Hey digital bro, been there myself, don’t give up.

    Where the hell is Gil? Did he pull a Herb because of the election results?

  62. LaFlamme said,

    I’d curse the spam filter for its indiscriminate ways, but man. You should see the shit it’s caught in there. Typically, if I free someone from spam jail a few times, it learns to unflag them.

  63. AO said,

    It’s funny that bloggers have been spammed. I mean, SPAM is the official non-meat of The Lost Sole, isn’t it?

  64. Bobbie said,

    What would you do with your spurs, AO? Then again, I may not want to know!

  65. Mainetarr said,

    we are waving the spam flag to you K2

  66. Linda said,

    Me, me, I want to be in the posse. Surprise me with an implement — oh never mind surprising me, I want a hat, OK?

  67. Mainetarr said,

    a spam hat or a tin foil hat

  68. AO said,

    Stetson, Linda? It’s the only way to go.

    Bobbie, I’ve got BIG plans for them there spurs.

  69. Linda said,

    We don’t need no stinking wings, we have Spam.

  70. LaFlamme said,

    A hat ain’t no implement, man. But okay. A hat. (note to self: order hats)

  71. Linda said,

    MT you meanie! A tin foil hat??? I’ve never been so insulted in my life. Well not this week anyway.

    Sure a Stetson.

  72. Bobbie said,

    Eve says to stop it because you’re making her hot, AO.

  73. Mainetarr said,

    Sorry, I was flipping through the channels and Signs is on. That’s why I thought of the tim foil hat. That movie was so good.

  74. Mainetarr said,

    tin, tin foil. Me tired.

  75. Linda said,

    No worries.

  76. Mainetarr said,

    what about a ten gallon of wine hat?

  77. Linda said,

    Now that sounds good. You supposedly can drink out of those suckers, but it would need a good wash after swilling ten gallons of wine from it.

  78. AO said,

    Sorry, Eve. I won’t talk about spurs anymore. Especially when there are pregnant woman present. Promise. No more talk about spurs. Okay? Spurs are off subject. So, don’t spur me on.

    MT, ten gallon wine hat? Is it a Fat Bastard wine hat? If so, count me in! Put that on your list, Mark.

  79. Linda said,

    He’s ordering the hats.

  80. AO said,

    Don’t forget the spurs!! Sorry, Eve.

  81. Linda said,

    And the ropes. We’ll hogtie a few perps, that will cheer us up. and possibly them too.

  82. Bobbie said,

    As for the perps, we’ll tie them to a fence, pull their pants down around their ankles and then turn a hungry calf loose on them. Then we’ll see just how much fun their NOT having!

  83. Linda said,

    Ouch, no that doesn’t sound like fun for them. I’d kind of taken it another way in my imagination.
