Hey, don’t be dissing enemas.

Just sayin’

3. Lipstick - June 24, 2008

OK, don’t want to make an enema of you.

4. eddiebear - June 24, 2008

Just had to laugh. I had a sh&tty day, and just wanted to have a bit of fun.

5. skinbad - June 25, 2008

Enema of the Peep Hole

6. nicedeb - June 25, 2008

That was cute.

7. harrison - June 25, 2008

With friends like these, who needs enemas?

8. Sobek - June 25, 2008

No decision yet from SCOTUS on the DC gun ban.

9. Sobek - June 25, 2008

But they reduced a $2.5 billion damage award against Exxon to $500 million and change (8-0, Alito didn’t participate). And they held that the 8th Amendment prohibits the death penalty for child rape (5-4, usual suspects).

10. kevlarchick - June 25, 2008

The enema of my enema is my friend.

11. Sobek - June 25, 2008

Public enema number one.

14. Lipstick - June 25, 2008

HA!

It’s an enema, it’s in public and it’s the first. (Here’s hoping it’s the last.)

15. Sobek - June 25, 2008

Why did a New Zealand newspaper report on a New Mexican being killed in New Mexico?

Married to the enema

28. Tushar - June 25, 2008

The mind of the enema

29. Tushar - June 25, 2008

My worst enema

Our scouts report enema movement.

34. xbradtc - June 25, 2008

A thread on enemas? YGBSM!!!

35. geoff - June 25, 2008

“Do you know who I am?” he asked enemagtically.

“No idea,” I replied, flicking an enemaginary bit of lint off my sleeve.

“I’m the Pope!” he cried, enemating rays of holiness.

“Forgive me, Your Enemance!” I stammered.

I’m a little jealous of those guys. Flyin’ around up among the clouds with a righteous buzz on has got to be hella fun.

38. Pupster - June 25, 2008

We have met the enema, and they are up ours.

39. Dave in Texas - June 25, 2008

So they took Mugabe’s knighthood and gave it to Rushdie?

I hope they dry cleaned it or somethin first.

40. Tushar - June 25, 2008

>>We have met the enema, and they are up ours.

Ha Ha Ha!

41. Tushar - June 25, 2008

A laxative wrapped inside a suppository hidden inside an enema.

42. Lipstick - June 25, 2008

Funny!

43. Will - June 25, 2008

Enema Mine

44. Muslihoon - June 25, 2008

Gives a new meaning to Turducken, Tush.

45. doubleplusundead - June 25, 2008

Heh, almost looks like a Hostages thread.

46. Muslihoon - June 25, 2008

Glad someone said it, ++undead!

Where’s Rich J? This is a rich thread for him. Really a thread he can get behind. He won’t poo-poo this thread.

Oh, Pretty K is punny too. I’m so lucky.

47. Michael - June 25, 2008

Stop it!!! I’m at the enema patience with the crappy thread.

48. Muslihoon - June 25, 2008

You are with us or you are with the enema. (No wonder they stink.)

49. Dave in Texas - June 25, 2008

the Penema Canal

50. geoff - June 25, 2008

The straying thread is an interesting phenemanon.

51. eddiebear - June 25, 2008

Let’s flush this potty talk out the back door!

52. Michael - June 25, 2008

If you crap on a rattler you’ll get venema.

53. cranky - June 25, 2008

Dave In Texas beat me to it.

54. Pupster - June 25, 2008

Smells like a movemenema.

55. Dave in Texas - June 25, 2008

Great flick. Damn Mitchum was an old school leading man stud, wasn’t he? And he could act. Absolutely creepy in Night of the Hunter.

56. Will - June 25, 2008

Fatal Enemaction (ok, that was a bit if a stretch)

57. Pupster - June 25, 2008

“Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enema action.”

*chicka bow chicka bow-wow*

58. PattyAnn - June 25, 2008

♫ For once enema life I have someone who needs me
Someone Ive needed so long ♫

59. daveintexas - June 25, 2008

PattyAnn wins the internets.

60. cathy - June 25, 2008

Hands down… PattyAnn wins the Enema Awards.

61. PattyAnn - June 25, 2008

*yay* This is my first Enema Award. You like me, you really like me!

62. cathy - June 25, 2008

Your prize is a bag of enema M’s.

63. cranky - June 25, 2008

Dave, another great one IMO, the scenery is great, is Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison.

64. Retired Geezer - June 25, 2008

Sleeping with the enema.

…on a fat naked woman with greased thighs.

65. Tushar - June 25, 2008
66. daveintexas - June 25, 2008

Why is the Skyline Chili post a spam magnet?

I mean, it was pretty good, but not that good.

67. Blackiswhite, Imperial Agent Provocateur - June 25, 2008

Its truly enematic how these threads devolve so quickly…

68. Michael - June 25, 2008

Brew, I think No. 58 should be added to the IB Comment Hall of Fame.

It’s up to you, as you are the custodian of the Hall of Fame, but I’m making the nomination.

69. Michael - June 25, 2008

Why is the Skyline Chili post a spam magnet?

Yeah, that’s weird how some ancient posts just start attracting spam. I don’t know why.

Anyway, I’m going to shut down comments on that post, which is my normal SOP when I see that happening.

70. PattyAnn - June 25, 2008

Thanks, Michael, but your lovely wife’s “enema M’s” was better.

71. BrewFan - June 25, 2008

I have acted post-haste in fulfilling your request Mr. Site Administrator, out of loyalty and devotion to duty.

Lets be honest; I did it to impress PattyAnn, my BFF.

72. PattyAnn - June 25, 2008

Brew–juicebox?

73. Michael - June 25, 2008

Thank you, Brewfan.

Here’s what I’m thinking tonight:

When you are laundering white permanent press Lands End 100% cotton dress shirts, the trick is to yank them out of the dryer before they get too dry. They gotta be slightly damp, which means you have to work fast.

Have some hangars ready, and a supply of collar stays. Then, yank them out of the dryer while they are still slightly damp, put them on a hangar, button the first and third button so any wrinkles will hang out right, manually shape the collar and insert the stays..

I got some OK lookin’ white shirts here.

74. Pupster - June 25, 2008

Pupster’s laundry tip:

Don’t eat Cheetos between loads.

75. Michael - June 25, 2008

Well, thanks for that, Pupster.

Cuz I love Cheetos, so I could have made that mistake.

76. eddiebear - June 25, 2008

Don’t use wire hangers with slightly damp white dress shirts.

Just sayin’

Oh, just never use wire hangers, period.

Ask Joan Crawford.

77. cathy - June 25, 2008

put them on a hangar

Honey, I think a simple hanger will do.

78. Michael - June 25, 2008

Nope, I’m using plasic hangers.

79. Michael - June 25, 2008

And by the way, Cathy, you are not authorized to be the Spelling Nazi on this site. That’s my job. Your job is to sell our over-priced house in Ohio.

80. Michael - June 25, 2008

Maybe I should mention that Cathy has been working her ass off to stage our Ohio house for sale.

81. cathy - June 25, 2008

The Spelling Nazi with no ass is workin’ on it.

82. daveintexas - June 25, 2008

no ass?

I remember one.

83. xbradtc - June 25, 2008

Dump the Lands End shirts, spring for the Brooks Brothers. I’ve tried both and BB looks much better. Cost more, but you get what you pay for.

84. eddiebear - June 26, 2008

BB has the best dress shirts going.

My French Cuff shirts all come from there.

85. xbradtc - June 26, 2008

Or get yourself little chinese mail order bride and let her do the ironing.

86. xbradtc - June 26, 2008

It’s old, but here’s Michael’s car.

http://failblog.org/2008/03/28/batfail/

87. Lipstick - June 26, 2008

Note the nicely shoveled driveway by the Batmobile.

Mr. L likes Alfani shirts from Macy’s. Quite stubborn about it.

18 neck. Good luck to me finding lots of those.

88. xbradtc - June 26, 2008

Alfani is nice, but you just throw BB in the dryer and they come out perfect.

89. Lipstick - June 26, 2008

Really? I’ll try to sneak one in the mix.

That could save a lot on dry cleaning.

90. Mr. Sucker McRuberton - June 26, 2008

Did somebody say ‘overpriced house?’

Just what I’m looking for!

91. Mrs. Peel - June 26, 2008

Nope, I’m using plasic hangers.

Falling down on the job there, Michael?

I have a couple wrinkle-free shirts, too. It’s nice not to have to iron them. ‘Bout time to get rid of them, though…they are starting to get those little white spots at the tips of the collar.

92. Rich - June 26, 2008

Enema-godda-davida

93. Michael - June 26, 2008

^
That was good! Late, but good.

94. Lipstick - June 26, 2008

Peel, how goes the house hunt?

95. Rich - June 26, 2008

I was just fashionably late is all. I do try to have a life outside of the nets ya know.

96. lauraw - June 26, 2008
97. lauraw - June 26, 2008
98. Sobek - June 26, 2008

“I do try to have a life outside of the nets ya know.”

HERESY!!!

99. Sobek - June 26, 2008

Happy The-Supreme-Court-Didn’t-Invalidate-Your-Second-Amendment-Rights-Day, everyone!

100. benshalom - June 26, 2008

Did they issue a ruling already?

101. Sobek - June 26, 2008

They did. People on the east coast, who wake up earlier than I do, have already read all 157 pages. I’m still working my way through it, but from the early reviews it looks like (a) the amendment protects an individual right (yipee!), and (b) the opinion is riddled with ambiguities that will probably create a lot of litigation.

102. eddiebear - June 26, 2008

the opinion is riddled with ambiguities that will probably create a lot of litigation.

Do I smell “Billable hours”?

103. Blackiswhite, Imperial Agent Provocateur - June 26, 2008

What’s wrong with “Billable hours?” I LIKE getting paid.

I’ll read the opinion on my lunch hour.

104. eddiebear - June 26, 2008

^nothing wrong. I just joked that ample opportunities exist for all kinds of work.

105. Sobek - June 26, 2008

“Do I smell ‘Billable hours’?”

Not just that, but state legislatures and lobbyists will probably get pretty busy, too.

I imagine the next legal step will involve Chicago, which (after DC) has some of the most restrictive laws in the country. It will be interesting to see if Heller will be expanded to cover the states, and if so, how much it will cover.

Heller is clearly a win, but no one knows how much of one, just yet.

106. Pupster - June 26, 2008

So, basically we can provide firearms to our children to protect them from child rapists?

I’d be OK with that, if it weren’t for the fact that I’m the one who make them do chores and stuff.

“Pick up your shoes”

*snick-click*

“Never mind, I got it”

107. Muslihoon - June 26, 2008

It would be nice if some our honorable legal beagles could put a post up informing us why this is significant. All I know is that the court just issued a ruling on the 2nd Amendment. I’m too lazy to find out any more.

108. lauraw - June 26, 2008
109. Muslihoon - June 26, 2008

Thanks, LauraW. Don’t usually check on Ace that regularly. Good posts he has up.

110. Blackiswhite, Imperial Agent Provocateur - June 26, 2008

Musi…the short answer is that there has never been a ruling that the right to own a gun is a right of the individual…well, that and if the DC gun ban was upheld, then the leftists in office nationwide would proceed to try to disarm any otherwise law-abiding populace.

I started with the dissent, and didn’t get too far yet. I probably won’t have read it until sometime tomorrow, and I’ll probably take another day or two to digest it all.

Oh, and when I find an honorable legal beagle, I’ll send them your way. Until then, this will have to do.

111. Sobek - June 26, 2008

No one is sure how significant it is, yet.

A while back I saw a liberal predicting that if the Court agreed with Heller (as it did), then right-wing groups would spend all their campaigning money on lobbying and litigation instead of on candidates, and it would ultimately hurt the Republicans.

Considering how facilely Obama just flip-flopped on his former anti-gun position, it’s hard to imagine he’ll take any real damage or have to divert campaign funds.

112. eddiebear - June 26, 2008

^oh, and Barry also has thrown support for the Fairness Doctrine under the bus.

113. Muslihoon - June 26, 2008

Thanks, guys.

114. Pupster - June 26, 2008

Heh. 114 comments, and I count 1, Nice Deb @ #6, on topic. If indeed she was referring to the video as cute.

I know Michael had a dream, a vision for this commenting site. I hope he does not have any animosity about the way things turned out.

115. Muslihoon - June 26, 2008

It better not be like a Mr. King’s dream: contrary to his dream, we’re about to elect an African-American president not despite his skin color but because of it! Shameful.

116. Michael - June 26, 2008

I hope he does not have any animosity about the way things turned out.

No, I have purged any such hostile thoughts, and am not enemotional about it any more.

117. Lipstick - June 26, 2008

🙂

118. daveintexas - June 26, 2008

ot, I am nekkid inna pool

119. Lipstick - June 27, 2008

Shrinkage?

120. Retired Geezer - June 27, 2008

Have some hangars ready, and a supply of collar stays.

*Geezer wonders to himself what the heck collar stays are*

I don’t think Hawaiian Shirts come with those.

Nor T-Shirts neither.

121. Pupster - June 27, 2008

That’s supposed to read “enemosity”. Ya know, the whole enema shtick?

Did you fix that Michael? Or did my spell checker go rouge on me?

122. Pupster - June 27, 2008

rouge=red
rogue=aberrant, dangerous, or uncontrollable

Spell checker is f’n with me.

123. Rich - June 27, 2008

Get enema belly!

124. Lipstick - June 27, 2008

Pupster, I “corrected” it in order to mess with Michael and make his correction not make sense.

Sorry for ruining your joke, but I was so stupid I thought you mis-typed.

*hitting head on desk*

125. Lipstick - June 27, 2008

Get enema belly!

Heh, earlier today I was thinking of Fat Bastard while rubbing a little round ferret belly.

126. Sobek - June 27, 2008

Does your ferret have a thick scottish brogue?

127. Lipstick - June 27, 2008

Yep. And a roguish eye.

And lots of fur on his chest and back and butt.

128. Sobek - June 27, 2008

You should dress him up in a wee lil’ kilt.
