  1. Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is also very hot.

    New name: Hansel

    1. Would?

    2. Hello.

      “A suitcase explosion near a migrant center in Germany was likely caused by an aerosol can, authorities say.”

      And?

      /crosses arms. Taps foot.

      1. Was it a Muslim aerosol can?

        1. Allah’s Secret… strong enough for a fellaheen, but made for a jihadi.

          1. LOL

            It leaves no white residue, either.

          2. By Mennen.

            And now it’s in your heads.

          3. Nice.

        2. You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants when children are exploding in this country.

    3. “Hansel.”

      “Hansel?”

      “HANsel?”

    4. Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is also very hot.

      Global warming! Apparently it’s been going on for a few hundred years at least.

    5. “Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is also very hot.”

      However if Uranus’s great brown spot is very hot Preparation H has a salve for that

  2. John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981 to impress Jodi Foster, will be released from a government pshychiatric hospital.

    Since Foster if off the menu, maybe he can look up Squeaky Fromme.

    1. He seems more the type to shoot her partner because she was just saving herself for him.

  3. Remaining charges against officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray have been dropped.

    Charm City’s long regional nightmare is over.

    1. One political career sentenced to death and that’s it?

    2. So…your time machine is working fine today I see. 1st,2nd & 3rd place. You will be receiving pictures of a drunk, nude Fruit Sushi via email shortly.

      1. Then he’ll really be fat shamed.

    3. on MEM am-jam, the angry police union’s weekly diatribe recently threatened a city where it could only afford for cops to sit at the station like firemen and respond to calls. That’s my dream: no “patrolling” cops “keeping the peace” or making decisions or judging anyone.

      I paid a court cost yesterday to have a ticket dismissed. Kid was told to go to X and write tickets for Y; I was at X, so I got a ticket for Y. It costs $135 just to get away from those fucks……greenmail.

      1. X = a gay bar
        Y = solicitation

        (Not that it should be illegal, of course.)

        1. Thread winner.

      2. You could replace the bulk of traffic and other citations with surprise extra tax bills for the same amount that were just mailed out randomly and it would be no less fair.

      3. X = Hell
        Y = Pandering

  4. My red spot is hot after that curry I had.

    1. STEVE SMITH MAKE RED SPOT HOTTER WITH INTERPLANETARY RAPE.

    2. Would

    3. Speaking of great red spots… My wife installed a bidet in our bathroom. I was skeptical of this French asshole washer at first, and then when it came time to shit the 3 quarts of hot sauce I had consumed earlier that day, I immediately saw the utility. Now I can eat the hottest food imaginable with no immediate negative consequences. As we all know, when you remove the immediate negative consequences from an action, nothing can possibly go wrong from there.

      1. Dude, I fucking love bidets. Nothing makes me happier than a clean butthole. For when I am on the go, I use Dude Wipes. Those things are flushable and have aloe and Vitamin E.

        1. Nothing makes me happier than a clean butthole.

          It really is the simplest things in life, isn’t it?

          1. I use green label Wet One sensitive (Witch Hazel, not alcohol). Much cheaper than Dude Wipes.

          2. First, a tight pussy; second, loose shoes; and third, a warm place to shit!

        2. Do you publish a newsletter I could subscribe to?

          1. The newsletter can be moistened for cleaner butts also.

        3. Nothing makes me happier than a clean butthole.

          NTTAWWT

        4. Nothing makes me happier than a clean butthole.

          That’s so true!

        5. Nothing makes me happier than a clean butthole.

          That’s so true!

      2. Barbarian.

        I grew up with one.

        We used it as a hamper despite pleads from our mother not to.

        Meh. Whaddya gonna do!

        1. I grew up with one.

          Spoken like a proud Quebecois.

          1. I’m many things. But ‘proud Quebecois’ ain’t one of ’em.

        2. “Meh. Whaddya gonna do!”

          Oh I don’t know, how about….

          Wash your smelly Canuk Ass

          🙂

          1. YOU KNOW YOU COULD WASH YOUR FEET IN ONE.

            Geez, what is it with you guys and ASSES?!

            /smirk.

      3. +1 Hazlitt

      4. Now I can eat the hottest food imaginable with no immediate negative consequences.

        If eating hot food has immediate negative consequences on your butthole, you may be doing something wrong.

        Butt-Chugging?

  5. Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is also very hot.

    Climate change!

  6. A suitcase explosion near a migrant center in Germany was likely caused by an aerosol can, authorities say.

    But was it a Muslim aerosol can? Notice how MSM just skips on describing details of the can.

    1. This is why we need common-sense aerosol can control.

    2. I’m pretty sure that since the media didn’t mention it was a white aerosol can, it must have been one of those brown ones.

    3. Now they are blowing up the ozone layer, too?

      1. Oh, I see. Just because it was Muzzy aerosol, the UKIP wankers automatically go CFC and all this racist rubbish.

  7. A suitcase explosion near a migrant center in Germany was likely caused by an aerosol can, authorities say.

    BAN AEROSOL CANS!

    1. No one needs an aerosol can.

    2. If you like your aerosol can, you can keep your aerosol can.

    3. Why is Germany importing millions of aerosol cans?

  8. Donald Trump suggested Russia or any other country or person that has Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 deleted emails release them to the FBI.

    To the FBI? That sounds like treason.

    1. Donald Trump wants to send Hillary’s ‘deleted’ emails over to the repressed memory hole? I thought he was running against her.

    2. The FBI already has all of Hillary’s emails. They don’t intend to do anything about them.

  9. OT: The metric system sucks.

    1. Explain.

      1. His car gets 50 rods to the hogshead and that’s the way he likes it.

      2. All unit systems suck. But compared to English units, the metric ones suck by orders of magnitude.

        1. By orders of 10 magnitude?

      3. There are times, you see, when you really think your life would be improved by Jammy Devils. Halfway through translating how many tablespoons to a gram, how many cups to X hundred grams… you know, fuck the British and their pasty lisping chefs, too.

        1. I don’t know why, but I keep confusing you with Heroic Mulatto. I think it’s because I had a mulatto hamster when I was a kid.

          1. I had a mulatto hamster when I was a kid.

            Awww!

          2. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

        2. 28 grams to an ounce. (see Dad, my dope smoking paid off!)

          1. Piker!

            16 ounces to the pound. Or, if it’s really good, 17 ounces.

            1. +1 Here’s a little extra for you.

          2. Actually, no, 28.35 grams to an ounce. And that’s probably not even accurate.

            It’s also essentially meaningless since the two exist indepently of each other.

            Alo, for those who have not been paying attention, no one actually uses pounds and ounces any more. Almost all US units have been decimalized for commerce for years.

            The only advantage Metric ever had was that it was decimal. Now that’s pretty much gone.

            1. Ok, who lost their family Rainman here? Isaac, just stay put and count the blades of grass mmmkay?

        3. You Americans always have to be so messy. It can’t all just be units of ten, oh no, it has to be twelve cubits to a furlong and eighteen furlongs to an ald.

          1. This isn’t true. Nearly all US units have been decimalized for commerce for years.

            Almost the only place were inches and fractions are now used in in wrench and nut and bolt sizes. And that’s disappearing since the US auto industry went metric long ago, along with pretty much all other manufacturing of goods in international trade.

            1. Saying that the US needs to go metric is as silly as saying that the British needed to adopt the French Franc when they decided they wanted a decimal currency.

              I base ten is needed to for convenience in computations the simply decimalize the units you have like civil engineers and surveyors did in the nineteenth century.

            2. This was meant to be a serious argument, it’s a parody of imperial complaints. Hence why I used both a classical and Mongolian unit of measurement.

              1. I realize that, actually. But just as in the liberal/proggie parody it looks to much like the serious arguments that people make, often people who should know better.

            3. Why is it even though metric sockets are available all ratchets still come in standard sizes, 1/4, 3/8, etc.?

        4. Kitchen scale solves all problems! Any recipes with flour are better with weight measurements any ways.

          1. This is correct, and you are wise.

            For the rest of you: go forth, and purchase a kitchen scale. NOW.

          2. See, this guy knows. Just between you, me, and the entire commentariat, I’m of the opinion that flour measurements in recipes are so inaccurate as to be silly. They really ought to include instructions to use them as more like guidelines, and then explain what humidity does to flour.

            1. what humidity does to flour

              John uses it to find the wet spot.

            2. Or you could just do like my grandmother did – her recipes often didn’t even *list* flour. You’re just supposed to know that it goes in there, and figure out how much by consistency.

      4. Easy divisibility is for pussies and foreigners. And you don’t strike me as a foreigner.

        1. Well, if he xe struck you, not exactly a pussy, either.

    2. There are two kinds of countries out there: those that use the metric system, and those that have put a man on the moon.

      1. NASA used both metric and imperial since its foundation. The Apollo computers used metric, but displayed imperial.Probably has something to do with those German rocket scientists.

    3. Also base 12 owns base 10.

      1. [Flashes secret Dozenal Society sign to Warren]

        1. Dolezal Society? Is that something to do with blackface?

          1. Rachel Dozenal. She’s back, she’s black, and she’s got two extra fingers to please.

        2. Clockface Killah, yo!

    4. The Great Border War of 2016 was fought over the merits and demerits of the metric system.

      The Belligerents included Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Vermont, New York, Maine, Montana but for some reason South Dakota but not North Dakota. Washington and B.C. chose to fight between themselves while Alberta saw no reason to fight since oil was not involved.

      1. There’s never any reason to fight unless hydrocarbons are on the line.

    5. I live in both all day every day.

      Metric is direct and simple and better, like electronic fuel injection; it’s like wearing a space-suit to work.

      English is more fun, cultural, like the throaty sound of a small-block Chevy that will barely idle because of the cam I chose, but it’s just cool to know the tricks around carbs; it’s like wearing a seer-sucker suit.

      1. Vivid, and oddly gaysexual. Do you have a beard?

        1. reckon I’ve never checked that box, NTTAWWI

        2. Good. I wasn’t the only one who noticed.

      2. Are you sure you want to go with “spacesuit” for metric? Because that suggests something clumsy and bulky and not appropriate to the enviroment unless your workplace is the ISS.

      3. Wait until you have to deal with metric, English, and imperial all day every day?

  10. Clones of Dolly the sheep are doing well.

    …and have endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.

    1. And more are registering to vote every day. In every district. Strange.

    2. I thought they endorsed Baaaah-rnie

  11. It’s time for Dirty Limerick Wednesday, because I’m going to be out of town tomorrow and won’t be able to put one up for Dirty Limerick Thursday.

    As always, I’ll provide the first line, and everyone else chip in.

    “There was a cis shitlord named Bill,”

    1. Who always liked drinking his fill.

      1. One night he met a lady named Jill.

        1. Then like Cosby slipped her a pill.

    2. With Hillary, he went up the Hill

    3. There was a cis shitlord named Bill
      Who once lived on Capitol Hill
      A cigar he did smoke
      the intern he did poke
      Because the missus was shrill

      1. err, apparently I can’t follow directions.

        1. That was great, don’t feel bad.

          1. It was great, but you should be embarrassed that you did not follow The Limerick Dictator’s rules.

          2. INCORRECT. YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD.

            But it was a rather nice limerick. Top marks.

      2. +1 Clintonian

        1. “While directions were not followed, there is no evidence of criminal intent.”

      3. One line at a time, shill!

    4. “Who had a homely wife named Hill,”

  12. A suitcase explosion near a migrant center in Germany was likely caused by an aerosol can, authorities say.

    So terrorists are now attacking the environment too. Despicable.

  13. Donald Trump suggested Russia or any other country or person that has Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 deleted emails release them to the FBI.

    According to my facebook feed this is the kind of lunacy that shows that the man is unfit to lead. I am not so convinced. It really depends on the phrasing, you know?

    1. Democrats wanted Trump investigated in case joking about Russia hacking email is a felony.

      Oh sure, now they care about investigating felonies committed by presidential candidates.

  14. New York Police Embracing a Weapon They Have a Complicated Past With: Tasers

    Now the Police Department, under different leadership and amid national anger over police killings of unarmed black men, is easing its limits on Tasers, which shoot electrified barbs. Over the last year, the Police Department has trained about 4,000 officers to use the devices, bringing the number of Taser-trained officers to nearly 10,000 on a force of about 36,000. In all, 1,710 Tasers are in circulation, nearly triple the number in 2015. A decade ago, 160 Tasers were in use.

    The expansion has occurred as Taser has lobbied in New York to market its products, which include not only stun guns, but also body cameras for police officers. Since 2013, the company has spent more than $300,000 lobbying the Police Department and other city agencies, according to city records.

    The Police Department hopes the wider availability of Tasers will reduce police shootings by providing officers a less dangerous fallback. “The idea is there is a buffer before you have to use a firearm,” said Inspector Raymond Caroli, the department’s chief firearms trainer.

    1. As a replacement for ‘Stop and Frisk’, Taser is proposing ‘Shock and Search’.

      Brave Police no longer have to risk their lives searching uncooperative young ethnics for dangerous contraband.

      Just set the controls to ‘seize’ and then sift through the contents of their pockets as they’re shaken out on to the ground!

  15. I hate John Hinckley. Because of him shooting Reagan, Scooby Doo got pre-empted for a news report.

    1. Ha ha ha! It certainly did and it pissed me off as well.

      1. “Doctor! Have you seen the tape?”

      2. They did that because Eddie Murphy hated the character.

    2. In 1984, 7 year old me voted for Mondale in the school’s mock election because I thought that Reagan had taken away too much cartoon time with his speeches.

      (in 1988 I voted for Ron Paul)

  16. John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981 to impress Jodi Foster, will be released from a government pshychiatric hospital.

    You know who else attempted an assassination to impress a girl?

    1. Herschel Grynszpan?

    2. B-Bill Clinton? (against bin Laden!)

      1. -1 Sudanese aspirin factory

        1. +1 Shanghai noodle factory

          1. Bonus round for Belgrade Chinese Embassy.

    3. Woody Allen in Take the Money and Run?

    4. Bill Clinton? (against Milosevic)

  17. The pants wetting going on right now about Trump’s comments about Hilldog’s missing emails are hilarious. This is some fun political theatre. I’m hearing chants of “treason!!” The man is a master at turning the tables.

    1. How can it be treason if the only things in the e-mails were Chelsea’s wedding plans and Hillary’s yoga schedule?

      1. Principals, not principles. Betraying Hilary IS treason.

      2. The problem isn’t that everyone assumes Russia went through our Secretary of State’s emails like a dose of salts and has access to material our own government can’t find. The problem, you see, is that that man practically dared them to give that info to the whole world.

        /yeah, I know, dude

        -.-

        1. Look, the DNC running a rigged game in which its leaders select the candidate and make the voters fall in line rather than vice versa does not harm democracy. Hackers telling everyone that they did it, on the other hand, is a fundamental threat to our democracy.

      3. How was it not treason for Hillary to turn all of her e-mails over to her lawyers – who do not have a security clearance – for them to decide which ones to delete and which ones to turn over to the state dept?

      4. Exactly. If they’re all personal and private and not work related like Hillary says, it can’t possibly rise to the level of treason (criminal hacking, yes, treason, no.) So… is her campaign saying they WERE work related?

  18. Texas teacher threatens ‘Pokemon Go’ players with in-game consequences

    “No playing Pokemon Go in class

    1st offense: I will take your phone from you and WASTE all of your pokeballs! Probably on a Pidgy or Rattata… But I will miss. Over and over and over…

    2nd offense: After wasting your pokeballs, I will use your incense and a lucky egg! Pokemon might be surrounding you, but you’re out of ways to catch them!

    3rd offense: I will transfer your highest level and rarest Pokemon! Maybe even 2… or 3 of them. 1 candy in exchange for a 1453 CP Dragonite.. seems fair.

    If I can’t catch them you can’t catch them!”

    1. will use your incense and a lucky egg!

      You mean a tamagotchi?

      1. Sometimes being out of touch isn’t cool, Ted.

        1. No more out of touch than a Lou Reed reference.

          1. I heard (or read) somewhere that Lou is really into Pokemon Go.

    2. That is one hell of a complicated masturbation euphemism.

    3. 4th offense: You will have to see me after class for “extra curricular activities”.

    4. Ya know, I always wondered on the legality of many things teachers threatened to do with other people’s property.

      I mean, I’m sure it boils down to FYTW, but I don’t think a private business, even one that made a “No Pokemon Go On Premises” rule couldn’t enforce the rule by confiscating the offender’s private property, wasting the limited data the phone receives, and intentionally corrupting files on the device. That seems like it would cross the line from “enforcing your establishment’s rules” to “theft and destruction of property”…

    5. First: Good luck getting through my passcode

      Second: Who cares, I’m a friggin student with no real life. I can go hang at the local park and pick up 300 poke balls in an hour

      1. Are you single?

  19. “John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981 to impress Jodi Foster, will be released from a government pshychiatric hospital.”

    Maybe they should release him to Syria.

    Tell him about Assad and that if he really wanted to impress . . .

    Nah, that would be wrong.

    And isn’t Jodi Foster of the isle anyway?

  20. the trump spot

    *looks suspiciously at Ed*

  21. Terry McAuliffe, who suggested Hillary Clinton would flip on the Trans-Pacific Partnership after the election now says she’ll “always” oppose it.

    More backpedaling in Philadelphia this week than at a moonwalk competition.

    1. Wasn’t the Dem convention over a week ago?

      1. I think the DNC just decided to forgo it, since no one ran against Hillary.

    2. The funniest thing in Philly is how the Bernie Bros think getting concessions in the platform somehow means something. If elected Hillary will simply ignore their platform and do whatever the hell she wants (just like with the Constitution.)

  22. Donald Trump suggested Russia or any other country or person that has Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 deleted emails release them to the FBI.

    At least he didn’t suggest Russia be fed into a woodchipper.

    1. In glorious Russia, wood chips you.

  23. So, remember that BC Tax (15%) on Wicked Chinamen (and other Furriners) daring to own real estate? Well, obviously it won’t work. But luckily, our Top Men have an answer

    Better Way To Tax Vacant Homes

    Here’s how it works: The city would introduce a property tax surcharge, but owners could credit their income taxes against this surcharge. Only those who don’t already pay income taxes in Canada ? those who leave properties vacant or don’t declare their income ? would end up paying the surcharge.

    Crucially, this policy is budget-neutral and does not raise taxes. The funds from the surcharge would be immediately distributed to all local taxpayers. This plan keeps the funds from disappearing into the black hole of politically favoured causes. Instead, they would directly alleviate the tax burden of residents.

    Ostensibly this is to protect the poor. You know who pays low-to-almost-none income tax? THE FUCKING POOR!

    Next up: let’s just cut to the core of the problem. You are allowed X square meters per person in a home. Home too big? We put up some poor people in there. Fair, effective, and definitely causes no problems whatsoever.

    1. “You are allowed X square meters per person in a home.”

      Jokes on you, legally my house is tiny!! The majority of the living space, the massive, finished basement, apparently doesn’t count towards total square footage!!

    2. Some gay proggies I know were bemoaning how systemically discriminatory and racist the United States is. They said that’s why they “bought” a house in Mexico, a place where Americans can only lease property for a maximum of 99 years and racial discrimination is built directly into the Mexican constitution.

      1. a place where Americans can only lease property for a maximum of 99 years

        Am I permitted to lease to create my own microstate? Because now I’ve got plans for a Mexican Hong Kong.

    3. Crucially, this policy is budget-neutral and does not raise taxes. The funds from the surcharge would be immediately distributed to all local taxpayers. This plan keeps the funds from disappearing into the black hole of politically favoured causes. Instead, they would directly alleviate the tax burden of residents.

      You know what else is budget-neutral and does not raise taxes? Not raising the fucking taxes.

      Also, why does it matter that they’re not paying income taxes? They’re not even fucking there. You’re still collecting property tax on it. It’s not like all the schools their children aren’t attending, all the roads their vehicles aren’t driving on, and all the emergency responders they aren’t calling are more expensive because they’re not around.

      1. Schools are not funded by cities up here, education is Provincial responsibility.

        But in general, reasoning is simple

        a) Housing is expensive in Vancouver because there’s more demand than supply
        b) Rich Chinamen are buying some real estate. We hate them for it
        c) But just saying “No Chinamen” might be misconstrued as racist. So we need something else.
        d) Also, if you don’t live in your house, and I want it, I should be able to have it somehow.

        What’s hilarious is that I don’t see how it’s different from making mortgage payments tax deductible. Except that didn’t lead to lower house prices in US where it IS deductible.
        Hence, what these people really want is the good old 1920s Soviet solution of “you have too much house, we’ll put some more people in there. I don’t have too much house, fuck you”

        1. I heard the same reasoning from liberal friends in the US recently? people can’t get housing in SF or Miami because developers are building luxury homes for rich foreigners to buy to get around taxes.

          Never mind that SF is creating jobs 12x the rate as new housing is built.

    4. In other words, if they’re already robbing you, they will be kind and not rob you twice.

  24. Rich guy buys dilapidated minor league baseball park from city and spends his own money to make improvements, city seeing signs of some revitalization

    “There was no guarantee this would work, but I could pretty much do the math,” he said. “Take three and a half, four million dollars. What’s the debt? What does it take for us to service that over 10 years? We have to generate that much income. Last year we generated about $400,000 in concessions, $300,000 in sponsorships and then all of our ticket sales and that kind of thing. … We made enough to service the debt, pay the bills and go on. So for us, it’s just a business deal.”

    Capitalist pig!

    1. broken link or just me ?

      1. Not you. Anyway, guy buys a ballpark in Pulaski, VA and things are going well.

    2. How dare a person try to to the government’s job, that they won’t do. It’s like feeding homeless people!

      1. In LA, some concerned citizens started providing tiny wooden houses to homeless people. The city destroyed them because they weren’t up to code — no bathroom, no electricity, no running water. So the homeless people went back to cardboard boxes.

    3. If you rebuild it, they will come. “They” being the leeches wanting a slice of the pie.

      1. “They” being the leeches wanting a slice of the pie.

        If you’re lucky we’ll let you have some of the crust, with just a smear of filling.

  25. John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981 to impress Jodi Foster, will be released from a government pshychiatric hospital.

    Someone’s not taking ANY chances of their being a Trump presidency.

    1. Fun idea for a movie:

      Corrupt politicians think they’re about to loose the presidency to an insurgent. They free an attempted assassin who targets presidents to achieve notoriety. Their plan backfires when it turns out the corrupt politician actually wins, and now she’s stuck in the cross-hairs of the freed assassin!!

      Can the corrupt president escape the assassin whom she had released in her hubris??

      God willing, the answer is no.

      1. Isn’t that basically Bullworth?

        1. *Googles*

          Well, would you look at that.

          1. Dude, you just got punk’d by a Slavic-Canadian.

        2. This is why Libertarians are hated.

          Someone, somewhere knows something and just has to let it be known.

    2. Sucks for Foster.

    1. This is why I have no MRSA on my fingers.

  26. Apparently a lot of people think the US invented slavery. Link

    Abandon all hope.

    1. The United States had well-fed slaves who slept in our finest dwellings.

    2. The Arab world never enslaved anyone. I can’t find any descendants of those slaves alive today to tell me that I’m wrong.

    3. I didn’t watch the video. What school did that guy teach at? That to me is just incredible. And you can only blame the schools so much. Anyone who thinks there was no slavery outside of the US ever in history is just willfully stupid. Going to a bad school doesn’t justify that kind of ignorance.

      1. + 1 Hebrew Moses

        1. Unpossible. The Jews could never be considered slaves, because they come from a position of power. They are.oppressors and created apartheid.

    4. And I wonder how much of that has to do with a complete unwillingness (either as an individual or the education system itself) to learn about anything outside of the United States. I mean, even a basic look at Roman culture shows slavery as a part of everyday life.

      1. Or they could just watch Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

  27. That giant boondoggle of a stadium in Hartford, Connecticut that Reason’s written about before? They might not even have a team to play there.

    HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) ? The Hartford Yard Goats have yet to actually play a game in Hartford. And, according to team owner Josh Solomon, if the $60 million ballpark isn’t ready for 2017, they may never play there.

    According to WNPR, Solomon informed a city lawyer that Hartford’s inability to finish the ballpark is a breach of their development agreement. The agreement states that the city now has six months to get the park ready before Solomon has the right to terminate his contract, and look for another place for the Yard Goats to play.

    “The Yard Goats love Hartford and we remain committed to the city,” Solomon said in a statement to News 8 Wednesday. “We will do everything in our power to make sure baseball is played at Dunkin Donuts Park in April 2017. We simply can not continue to exist without a home in 2017.”

  28. I spot a mermaid kissing John Kerry’s adam’s apple.

    1. Agile much?

      Did you stumble into his stash, or is it a stroke?

      1. To the left of the red spot. Get it together, friendo.

    2. +1 jizz ninjas

  29. From wikipedia:
    Infrared data has long indicated that the Great Red Spot is colder (and thus, higher in altitude) than most of the other clouds on the planet

    So huh? I guess there’s a whole lot we don’t know about the objects in the solar system.

    1. All science is settled. Like Einstein used to say, never question anything.

  30. The fun part about Donks spluttering about Trump saying Russia should release her emails is the fact that they’re claiming he’s endangering national security. Why, how could that possibly be true? Those emails didn’t have any classified information in them, right? They were just yoga routines and diet tips and little notes about the family, weren’t they?

  31. John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981 to impress Jodi Foster, will be released from a government psychiatric hospital.

    And believe it or not, he’s walking on air…

  32. Terry McAuliffe, who suggested Hillary Clinton would flip on the Trans-Pacific Partnership after the election now says she’ll “always” oppose it.

    With help of hapless minions like Terry, Hillary might achieve something never seen – quantum political superposition.

    It is a strange world, where yes/no exists at the same ‘time,’ only ‘collapsing’ into the answer after observing the answer’s state via money or a vote. And it is always answer the observer wanted, no matter how the experiment is set up, and even if positions of respective answers were lightyears apart initially.

    Einstein called this ‘spooky action at a distance.’

    1. It’s been almost three years but it still churns my stomach knowing that the Clintons’ bagman, that slimy piece of shit McAuliffe, is the governor of my state.

      1. Why do you want to ban blowjobs?

        1. Never could get used to the taste?

    2. quantum political superposition

      Schrodinger’s candidate

  33. Marvin Bush endorsed Gary Johnson while Bill Kristol is considering voting for him.

    “Jeb! Jeb! It’s me, Marvin! Your brother, Marvin Bush. You know that new candidate you’re looking for? Well listen to this!”

    1. “You may not vote for him. But your kids are gonna love him.”

    1. Oh, FFS, me. @Chipwooder

    2. It’s the new term for a bad poker player.

    3. Hah…..that was actually on one of the movie channels recently, hadn’t seen it in a long time. Its funny how many future recognizable actors are in such a crap movie when they were nobodies- Charles Dutton, Colin Quinn, Luis Guzman, Carlos Carrasco.

  34. Still no coverage from Reason? Well, let me repost this from this morning:

    Charges dismissed against Planned Parenthood videographers

    “The Harris County District Attorney’s office on Tuesday dismissed all charges against anti-abortion activists who secretly videotaped Planned Parenthood officials in Houston….

    “[David Robert] Deleiden and his attorneys claimed victory for the anti-abortion movement, saying they were satisfied with the decision.”

    1. Statement from the President of Students for Life of America, Kristan Hawkins:

      “David Daleiden’s courage and fortitude to expose the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, should have been met with immediate investigation and prosecution of the baby parts profit-making scheme by the Harris County District Attorney. Yet, it was David instead of Planned Parenthood who took the heat for daring to show the nation what our tax dollars have been funding. Planned Parenthood needs to be held accountable for their horrendous business practices of betraying their clients and selling their babies piece-by-piece for profit. We need to get to the bottom of why rampant corruption occurred during the investigation in Harris County. The DA made a mockery of the office, colluded with an organization that should have had its employees arrested and charged for criminal conduct, and indicted a journalist who exposed Planned Parenthood.

      “David Daleiden is a hero, and we are thrilled that these scam indictments have rightly been tossed. This is a huge win for all citizen journalists whose First Amendment rights were upheld today.”

  35. Does this mean that Jodie Foster’s Army will be having a reunion tour?

  36. Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is also very hot

    ISIS claim responsibility.
