Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

What with the nature of small-game hunting in Alaska, I’m toying with the idea of seeing if I can find an old Savage 24 combo gun, preferably in .22LR over 20 gauge.  Why, you ask?  Well, I’m a-gonna tell you.

Savage 24

Small game seasons here in the Great Land are long, with generous limits.  Spruce grouse and snowshoe hares are plentiful and good numbers of them can be found withing walking distance of where I sit at this moment.  But both are also known for occasionally stupidly sitting still and looking at the hunter, while others will run or fly.  It seems, that being the case, that having either a .22 or a shotgun load interchangeably at hand might well be the order of the day.  Or, it may just be a good reason to buy another gun, one that I’ve always found interesting.

Anyway, with that said…

On To the Links!

You’ve gotta love Rand Paul.

Japan develops freeze-dried mouse sperm postcards.  Best headline of the week.

Biden Voters Are Already Showing Signs of Buyers’ Remorse.  I damn well bet they are.

Andrew Dice Cuomo’s problems just keep piling up.

Inflation may be worse than we already know.

It’s easy to be a thief in California these days.

Kung Flu cases along the Texas-Mexico border are exploding.  I wonder why?

Fuck off, slaver!

Hypocrites gonna hypocrite.

What a bunch of condescending assholes!

To quote a friend:  Big ideas require a big hammer and sickle.

Piers Morgan is an unapologetic leftie, but when he’s right, he’s right.   Especially with this bit:   “I think Cuomo should have gone after it emerged that he ordered nursing homes to accept thousands of potentially COVID-positive patients when they were discharged from hospital during the first wave of coronavirus in March last year, without requiring the residents to test negative for the virus first – thus condemning countless old, vulnerable people to needless death.”  I couldn’t agree more.

Dokumenty, pozhaluysta.

Chicago cops turn their backs on Mayor Beetlejuice as wounded cop’s father berates her.  And, she had all that coming, and then some.

This from The GuardianCan Biden Beat Republicans in the War of Words?  Honestly, President Biden(‘s handlers) couldn’t beat a four-year-old in a game of Pick-Up-Sticks.  I’ve never seen an administration whose messaging was so inept.

Don’t buy the latest climate-change alarmism.

The Texas fleebaggers are pompous assholes, and idiots.  “Risked our lives?”  Seriously?  Pull your fingers out of your asses!

The Hill‘s Brad Bannon is an idiot.

The people who agitated for moving a rock are all idiots, and so are the university staff who gave into the idiots.

Rep Cori Bush (Imbecile – MN) is an idiot.

Brian Stelter continues prepping for his second career as an actual potato.

Robert Reich (Repeat Offender Alert) is still an idiot.

Chicago Mayor Beetlejuice (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.

OK, that’s all I can take for this week.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:

This sorta-kinda predates me; in 1965, I was four years old, and not paying too much attention to popular culture.  In later years, though, I did develop an appreciation for Welsh singer Tom Jones.  He’s got a big helping of talent and charisma and, last April, at 81 years of age, he released a new album, Surrounded by TimeThat, True Believers, is staying power.

Back to 1965.  Following the release of Jones’ first album, Along Came Jones, Tom appeared on the famous Ed Sullivan show.  It’s important to note that the TV in these days was generally broadcast live; this is a true live performance, unlike a lot of the lip-synced horseshit that became routine later.  Here is the great Tom Jones, with It’s Not Unusual.  Enjoy.
