Nothing But The Suldog Equivalent Of Fluffy Kittens

Somewhere back in time, when I used to be sane, I said:

"I'm not encouraging obscenity, but I won't discourage it, either. Make it funny, or use it to emphasize a point, but I’d prefer that you don’t be gratuitous just for shock value. Obscenity always works better when it is an organic part of the whole. Be creative."

I'm afraid my previous post did not fully take my own advice. I won't say it was completely gratuitous, nor was it without its gruesome charms, but you folks deserve better than to be hit in the face with my bile.

So, I apologize. If it helps any, I'll plead temporary insanity. The more of that sh... stuff I see, the closer I get to going to some corporate office building with weaponry in tow. Venting here saves lives. And you, by listening, keep me out of jail. Thank you.

If you haven't been to the THANKSGIVING COMES FIRST Facebook page, please visit now. If you LIKE us, this space will probably remain scatology-free for that much longer.

(If you're one of those folks who enjoys it when I go off like a nucular bum [to quote from one of my favorite books] don't use reverse psychology by refusing to LIKE the page because you think it will set me off again. If you want to hear me swear some more, just send me a private e-mail and make the request. If it will make you happy, I'll reply with a stream of invective that will blister your eyeballs. I'm serious. If that's how you get your jollies, I'll send you stuff that would make Larry Flynt blush. I aim to please and you've been warned.)

The next post in this space will include links to all of the latest THANKSGIVING COMES FIRST blog writings, so if you haven't done one of those yet, why not do one now? And if you feel like swearing, I'll take it in the same gracious way you took it here. Thanks!

Soon, with more better stuff.

P.S. I just have to mention this. I made what I thought was a great joke in this post. Apparently, nobody caught it (or, at least, nobody commented in a way that would make me think they did.) Did any of you read the last line there and then check out my profile pic? I hate to explain a joke, but I also hate to think I went to all that trouble for nothing.

P.P.S. This is what you get now that I have an internet connection at home and MY WIFE is out of town.

P.P.P.S. For anyone who cares, I'll be watching the BC - Notre Dame game tonight. My theme shall be copious amounts of Chinese food, along with fond memories of 1993 and 2002. That's an inside joke, so don't worry if you're not Buck and you don't get it.


Maggie May said...

I've gone backwards & forwards to your recent posts but I can't pick up a joke on the last line of anything. Not that I'm the best to get jokes anyway.

I see you've turned into a pussycat! Well you are one aren't you?
Wasn't that creature in the video a pole cat...... ah..... is that it?

Nuts in May

IT (aka Ivan Toblog) said...

It's time to write another song
About how to not exactly swear
Something like, May the descendants of a thousand pigs defecate on your grave

You're probably gonna have way too much fun with the Internet at home

I'd like TCF on Facebook, but that would mean I'd have to have a Facebook account
So maybe we need a TCF on Google Plus?
Then Buck can participate, should he choose to do so

BTW you haven't used any thing I haven't heard before

Suldog said...

I love you, Maggie.

OK, I guess I didn't make the joke obvious enough.

I said, "Soon, with more better stuff (although, if you see my profile pic suddenly changed to a LOL cat or something, it may not be me, so be wary.)"

And then I changed my profile pic to a LOL cat. You can see it up top on the sidebar.

Oh, well. It was subtle.

Jimmy said...

Hey Jim, Sometimes we just have to vent, and I completely understand where you are coming from, but since your profile picture turned into a LOL cat I was just being a bit wary about commenting :)

Jackie said...

I am just sooo excited that you have internet connection at home now and we don't have to wait until workday Monday to hear from you!
Like Maggie, I went back to the linked post...saw the kitty cat posted as your profile pic (but didn't see it until today, I have to admit)...
I wasn't offended with your language because I know the inside of you. It's what inside that counts. And, I can count.
Pleased to be among the many that are keeping you out of jail.

Buck said...

I caught the last line of yer previous, but I didn't check out yer profile pic. My Bad.

Thanks fer the linky-love and make SURE you have yer rosary at hand for the game this evening, coz you're gonna NEED it.

As far as gratuitous obscenity goes... this pot can NOT call the kettle black. Wait. Was that racist?

Hilary said...

I'm struggling to catch up and just read the past few posts. You never offend. The worst you do is talk sports. ;) I did almost miss your comment on my post, today because of the new avatar and because.. well.. it's the weekend. I hope it's a good one for you. :)

Michelle H. said...

I completely missed the joke because I'm so used to seeing your old profile pic that I didn't think to check. That, and I know how big of an ego you have and I couldn't imagine you changing it to anything else but another photo of yourself. (I say that last part in a very praiseworthy manner. Nothing wrong with an ego so long as you use it for good and point it in the right direction.)

Suldog said...

Michelle - How dare you say that a person with my stupendous good looks, enormous intelligence, stunning wit, and Twain-like writing ability, has a big ego!

lime said...

ok, i admit, i failed to check your profile. it's funny though, especially given you're a sul"dog" not a sulcat.

messymimi said...

While i try to take my grandmother's approach to using such language (she said one word, one time in her whole life, and everyone knew she meant it), i understand that sometimes there are things you must get out of your system.

Craig said...

I noticed the LOL-cat thing, but I didn't really get it. So when your profile pic changed, I thought it must've had something to do with it, but darned if I could figger it out. . . I do miss the catcher-squat, tho. . .

Anyway, boobidy-be-bop, and all that (oh, damn, and here you were trying to keep this place scat-free. . . sorry)

And really - I was just teasing you, not doling out heavy correction. . .

Jenn Flynn-Shon said...

Liked the page & in my long standing tradition of fully supporting your cause, yet being a lazy mofo, I will promtly not write a post about it while I dream of stuffing and wonderful conversations with family in a couple weeks.

Pretty sure I got the lol cat joke but I'm not really a fan of lol cats (yeah, I'm aware I'm the only person on teh planet who feels this way but I stand by my choice)

Jenny Woolf said...

So you're a cat, I always thought you were a dog *thinks: oo-er, hope that doesn't set him off again* and DON'T CHANGE YOURSELF We like the way you are, that's why we read your blog!

Absolut Ruiness said...

Hey are you about to change your name to Sulcat?! And sorry for not getting the joke. I know how you feel.

Daryl said...

Toonman is a ND fan .. cause his BFF went there ... he was also a fan of the Giants because another of his pals loves them .. how easily he is swayed

oh and i got it .. i did ... but well ...

For a minute I forgot what my avatar is... not that it matters.
