Recent Graphics Fun
Below are some of my latest graphical contributions at the Cheezburger Network, home of LOLCats and FAILBlog.org, the latter of which protested the use by Meg Whitman's campaign of FAILBlog imagery and thereby became the subject of a still-ongoing firestorm of Right-wingers posting nasty, demeaning, insulting, degrading comments to the post where Whitman was called out for what she did. As I noted in comments on my post here at The Dark Wraith Forums
about the dust-up, the Whitman campaigninstead of pulling the video at the request of the Cheezburger Networkis now broadcasting the offending ad in at least one major media market in Southern California. My first poster, below, specifically salutes the Teabaggers for some of their outlandishly over-the-top blather in comments at the Cheezburger Network, where they are doing their usual hatchet job of trying to shout down anyone and everyone who isn't as crazy as they are.
Enjoy my stuff, below. Some of the graphics are timely commentary, and some of them are less so. (If some of them don't make sense, it's probably because they are aimed at some specific group, like the "Call of Duty" motivational poster.) Be sure to click on a picture and vote for it if you like it, and definitely post anything that appeals to you at your own site. You can also see my complete set of Cheezburger Network graphics (some of which are of a slightly racier variety and thus not quite suitable for The Dark Wraith Forums
) by clicking here
And what's just as funny, Moody Blue, is that the Teabaggers now deny that they ever used the term "teabag" or any variation on it. They started doing the denial routine once it became apparent to them that the term "teabagging" had a meaning none of them had ever experienced.
Judging from the look of the lady in that picture, above, I can understand the lack of experience.
The Dark Wraith has written enough about ugly.
Those are simply awesome! I'll be posting them, with attribution, of course. I wanna run the pope one soon, because every time I post something that doesn't paint the pope in a good light, I get a hate email or two, which I find tremendously entertaining.
What movie is that particular alien from?
Regarding your sidebar "Quoth..." : We donated grandma's head to the University of TN, but actually they just took her brain and left her head on her body, thank gawd. We donated her brain for Alzheimer's research because we thought it was important. Now my mom is in the later stages of it, also.
I agree, it sounds like somebody's wrongly profiting in the instance you mentioned, which is so completely ugly.
I'm not sure, Anna Van Z, but I assumed the still was from AVP, but now that I'm looking at it more closely, I'm thinkng that's not right.
High marks all around for the graphics! Creepily funny. Humorously creepy. Now, however, you are primed for Phase II: the Teabagger cat toy. This is clearly a job for the devilishly clever mind of the DW. We quiver in anticipation!!
Good evening, Dark Wraith.
I like that last one best of all! After having the cats flea dipped, the place fogged, and then finding the cats found MORE fleas, that poster really tells the tale. Sis and I were talking about it, and she thought that because of all the pesticides being used, nowadays, the bugs are getting a lot stronger.
I used to think that also until a glint caught my eye after fogging a room. Checking it out, I used a magnifying loop and found a discarded micro gas mask the fleas were wearing. (I could swear I heard the tiny shrill of laughter - that didn't come from the shriller of Wasilla.)
After my cats caught a couple of live fleas and used enhanced interrogation, it was discovered (the fleas confessed) that the people who make RAID produced the tiny masks!
The pesticide companies are playing both sides of the fence! Protect more fleas so you have to by more foggers!
Hi, Father Tyme.
Ha ha ha - that was great:)
However, it sure explains the problem! Those companies sure know how to make the money. I'm sure they're also in league with the company that makes Frontline. That's what my kitties got dosed with next. Less scratching, now, but there is still some going on.
Be EXTREMELY CAREFUL with those fleacides! My mother was a Veterinary nurse for over 40 years and she and the vets she worked for tell all their patients to use the stuff VERY FRUGALLY.
The directions say squeeze a tube onto the back of the neck of the cat and rub it in.
The vets she worked for have over 25 incidents of terrible reactions to Frontline but mostly Advantage during the last 8 years. Reactions go from near total catharsis to death. Many stop eating for days, act listless and appear totally "out of it"; some lose urinary functions and some have liver and kidney problems.
The sad part is some vets disagree with this diagnosis for their own reasons. Some call it fear-mongering or stupid. Remind you of anything?
My wife and I know and have seen personally 5 instances of cats dying from the use of only ONE tube of fleacide on a cat. That's 4 too many to be a coincidence.
Since 1996 we, on instructions from these vets, have used a single drop (sometimes two on very large cats) on the backs of their necks, once per week...very well rubbed in. While this means repeating the procedure much more often, the consequences are not to my liking and I certainly wouldn't try with a cat I loved.
And each of these vets does NOT recommend using them on kittens or very small cats. Use flea powder or a flea collar that has been cut in two and sewn with elastic to prevent the cat from getting hung up by the collar on something.
A cat we gave to a good friend died because they followed directions in the package instead of listening to the vet.
Try the one drop method per week to see if it works for you. The alternative might not allow for a second chance.
I'm certainly not telling you what to do and, no, I'm not a veterinarian. But I've been involved with cats for over 50 years along with many other animals and had cats treated with both Frontline and Advantage.
The online people and companies naturally claim there's no proof their product causes these problems but I'll tell them they're full of shit to their faces! Again, I've seen it first hand so they can take their cynicism and shove it.!
And there have been reports of similar incidents happening to SMALL dogs, not medium to large ones. I know one friend who had a Yorkie (about 4 pounds weight) that nearly died from using it. I was there when the owner applied it and we rushed the dog to a vet. He was able to save the dog. Needless to say, my friend has a new vet.
Of course, it's your choice, but getting information from as many sources as possible may give you a better indication than simply taking Bayer's Word for it! Drug companies don't have a real swell track record as of late.
Just wanted to let you know my experiences.
