I don’t want this to be true because I love that video but does anyone else remember the same video from several years ago but with the dog refusing treats from Clinton?

I’m having some déjà vu with this although it’s funny as hell.

Happy Sunday, IBers.

Miss Barney big time.

4. Cathy - August 16, 2009

Hi Rosetta. Hi Lips!

Hope someday you two will meet. (ass-u-me …ing that you have not yet)
Hope I’m there when you do.

5. Lipstick - August 16, 2009

Hi Cathy! Give the doggies a pat from Aunt Lipstick.

Rosetta and I haven’t met yet.

6. Cathy - August 16, 2009

Doggies got their pats AND belly-rubs too.

Lips and Rosetta gotta happen, just sayin’

7. Rosetta - August 16, 2009

Hi Cathy.

*smoooooooooooooch*

Lips, are you fun? Or do you suck like Michael said?

8. Lipstick - August 16, 2009

You believed anything Michael said?

9. BrewFan - August 16, 2009

hahahaha! Good boy!

10. Rosetta - August 16, 2009

You believed anything Michael said?

Anyone that wears underoos at his advanced age and stage of dementia is never to be trusted.

Where do you live, Lippy?

^ ROSETTA!!!!!!!

13. Rosetta - August 16, 2009

Hahahaha. Sorry sweet Cathy!!

It’s BrewFan’s fault for commenting right before.

Stupid BrewFan.

I have never said anything bad about Lipstick ever!!!

Well, I think I mentioned on a thread somewhere that her butt is kinda small. She’s not really stressing her jeans fabric, if you know what I mean. But that should be no big deal. Most wimmen would consider that a compliment. I certainly checked her out more than once.

15. Rosetta - August 16, 2009

Based on Michaels description, he is my artist rendering of Lipstick.

Not good, Rosetta. You left off the impressive hooters.

You also didn’t quite capture the “I’m so hot” eyes.

Just sayin’.

Hey, I’m a guy. I couldn’t help but notice.

17. Michael - August 16, 2009

Woot, new flags!

We got Seychelles and Lesotho!!!

I’m still waiting for Guyane (formerly French Guiana), the only flag in South America that we don’t have. We’ve got the two other Guyanas, flyspeck former colonies of Holland and Britain which are now countries on the northeast coast.

It’s interesting how that small coast on a straight shipping lane to Europe used to be British, French, and Dutch Guyana.

Meanwhile, the Portuguese and the Spaniards owned the rest of the continent, which they brutally plundered.

18. Michael - August 16, 2009

Today, you can go to Portugal and Spain, and visit awesome cathedrals where the altars are festooned with gold and silver, all mined in South America by indigenous slaves.

19. Rosetta - August 16, 2009

I regret to inform that poor sap from Guyane that there are no stick figures with boobs on the webtubes.

Stupid webtubes.

20. Michael - August 16, 2009

The colonial history of the United States is actually rather limited, for a world power. OK, we took over places like the Phillipine Islands and Cuba (that was unofficial — a Mafia operation), and Texas (Santa Anna was an idiot), but we were relatively benign as a great power. Our worst sin was importing slaves sold by Arab traders from West Africa. Big mistake.

On the other hand, you can kinda see how it happened. The Brits were making a fortune from slave sugar cane plantations right next door to us, producing rum in places like Jamaica.

So, Americans were thinking — hey, we can grow cotton down here, and compete with India. We just need cheap labor.

21. Rosetta - August 16, 2009

I would say the jury is still out on that.

22. harrison - August 16, 2009

Slaves that the Arab traders bought from other tribes.

hahahaha! Good one, Chrome Dome.

24. Michael - August 16, 2009

I have some good news, by the way.

About one month ago, we (Cathy did the work) put out a hummingbird feeder. No action, but you have to be patient with these things and keep changing the fluid and give it some time.

In just the last couple of days, we started getting hits from hummingbirds.

Now, you may think this is all cutesy to see hummingbirds at a feeder, but you would be wrong.

They are mean aggressive territorial little bastards. It’s like Fight Club in the air. A dominant bird will try to control the feeder and chase other birds off. While he is doing that, secondary birds sneak in and feed, then the dominant bird returns and attacks them.

Good times. Makes me feel like the environment at my office is not really so bad.

25. Mac - August 16, 2009

So, basically what you’re saying is, you couldn’t care any less about the stupid flags now that you have your private bird war going on.

Or did I get the wrong?

Also, FAKE!

Obviously some sort of computer graphic generated dog. No real dog would chew like that. Totally un–lifelike.

26. Mrs. Peel - August 16, 2009

I have a hibiscus for all-natural hummingbird feeding. There is at least one ruby-throated male around here, although I haven’t seen him this summer.

Anyway, I was walking the dog, and an incredibly depressing thought occurred to me: I have more in common with a collection of random morons off the intertubes than I do with most of the people I know IRL. Including my friends.

That is truly sad.

27. Dave in Texas - August 16, 2009

Ever hit a humminbird with a tennis raquet?

I have.

28. Michael - August 16, 2009

I have more in common with a collection of random morons off the intertubes than I do with most of the people I know IRL. Including my friends.

That is truly sad.

Nah, not sad. That’s just the miracle of the IP protocol, fiber optics, 3G broadband wireless technology, etc., all of which are making our world different, and making it possible to connect with people in a way that is not bounded by geography.

Plus, you are overlooking the fact that I am a “random moron” who has met you personally, in my home, and I danced with you in Connecticut, and I think you are a delightful young lady.

So there.

29. BrewFan - August 16, 2009

I have more in common with a collection of random morons off the intertubes than I do with most of the people I know IRL. Including my friends. That is truly sad.

Admittedly I’m a glass-half-full kind of guy but I consider this a blessing. I haven’t met any of you in real life yet but strangely, and happily, I feel like I have about 20 friends I wouldn’t have had otherwise.

30. Michael - August 16, 2009

Ever hit a humminbird with a tennis raquet?
I have.

I’m guessing the hummingbird flew away. Which says something about your limp-wristed tennis stroke.

31. Mac - August 16, 2009

Ever wanna type something, and the words just do not flow?

Commenters block I has.

32. Mrs. Peel - August 16, 2009

Aw, I love youse guys *hugs everyone*. I just think it’s kinda sad how little connection I have with most people my age.

33. Mac - August 16, 2009

Ever hit a hummingbird with a car, only to later find it’s grandfather gives you a curse that makes you lose a good deal of weight? I know, lamest gypsy curse ever.

Man, and I feeling great! Stupid hummingbird thought it was going to get me, but dang if I haven’t lost 5 lbs, this week. That’s 15 pounds since I hit that old bird.

Okay, off to the midnight snack!

34. Michael - August 16, 2009

Ever hit a hummingbird with a car, only to later find it’s grandfather gives you a curse that makes you lose a good deal of weight?

Mac, that reminds me of a question I’ve been wanting to ask you.

Exactly what kind of meds are you on?

You can say it’s none of my business. I will respect that.

35. Michael - August 16, 2009

I just think it’s kinda sad how little connection I have with most people my age.

Looking on the bright side, most people your age are about six years behind you in the maturation process, so the lack of connection is understandable.

This will all even out when your peers start getting serious about getting married and having babies.
