Quick Hits: With Odd Combinations

We got one heavily armed recreational vehicle ...

Name the movie! You know you can.

Anywho, in Butler Kansas, a car dealer has started giving away guns with the purchase of a new car. That's right, guns. In fact, he recommends you choose the Kel-Tec .380 pistol because it is a "nice little gun that fits in your pocket." (See photo)

Fits in your pocket? Let me get this straight, not only is this car dealer handing out guns, he is handing out guns designed specifically to be concealed? Can he do that?

He says he started the give away in response to Barak Obama's comments about people clinging to religion and their guns. He found it offensive.

So basically, an angry conservative is handing out free, easy to conceal guns to like-minded people and it's legal. What's next? Free guns with every donation of $1,000 or more to the Republican National Committee?

And people wonder why the rest of the world has such a disgusted look on their collected faces when they look at us.

I guess the bottom line is this: if who come across a guy in a new car in Butler Kansas, he isn't that excited to see you and that really is a gun in his pocket.

Buy a Car, Get a Gun

"Mrs. Robinson, Are you voting for me?"

For those of you who follow American Idol, a little news story dissecting David Cook's win. We all know that in the end, it comes down to the demographic to which the contestants appeal. If you get to the finals, you have some level of talent, then it's about getting people to vote.

David Archuleta had the Disney crowd firmly in his corner. The teens were split, some loved Cook, some loved Archuleta. So what happened, why didn't Archuleta run away with the title?


That's what they are calling the sexually active middle aged women who either practice, or fantasize about, sex with younger men. And they voted like crazy for David Cook. They want him and they don't have to feel guilty because he is of legal age.

Linda Sharp, smitten as a schoolgirl, voted 473 times for Cook after Tuesday’s final performance show. The 42-year-old married mom used her land-line and cell phone — as well as her three daughters’ cell phones — to show support for the singer.

“The biggest thing: He’s legal, and that goes a long way,” said Sharp, who’s from Austin, Texas. “He’s 25. That’s old enough that we can openly ogle him, and we can drool over him, and it doesn’t make us feel like we could be his mother.”
So wait. Let me get this straight. They voted for David Cook because he is 25 they didn't feel guilty about wanting to fuck him. Doesn't that imply that one of the reasons they didn't vote for Archuleta was because they felt guilty about drooling over a 17 year-old?

A few of you out there are shaking your heads saying, "No way, the T-Dude doesn't know shit." But I merely report'em as I see'em in Quick Hits, just click on the story below for more details.


Charles Dickens Would Be Proud

Honestly, just read the story. I won't go into all the details. The bottom line is this. A woman's house was sold out from under her, without her knowledge, to pay a $68 dental bill. The house was sold in 1996. She continued to live there, make mortgage payments etc. No one told her it had been sold until 1998. And the courts and the sheriff all agree, it's legal. Just give it a read and wonder, what kind of country do we live in when things like this can happen.

Woman Loses Home Over $68 Dental Bill

I believe that title is from Stripes.

As for the woman in Utah losing her home, she is lucky she is white and lives in Utah because there is all this news coverage and people wanting to help her. If she was black and from Detroit she'd in a homeless shelter and none of us would ever have heard of her.

Yep. Stripes. "Son of bitch. Shit." I swear to you, I've heard that line more than any other over the years I've been married to my husband. I do believe it's one of his favorite lines and I HATE it when he says it. Drives me nuts. It was actually funny the first.. oh.. 4 times he did it maybe. But now? Almost 11 years later. Uh-uh.

As for the car dealer... um.. pardon me while I revert to some text abbreviation(with my no-cell having ass) and say... WTF?!! So the customers are getting credit at the store- so they still have to go through the waiting period, correct? I guess it makes some sense that people are choosing the gun credit over the gas card with the way gas prices are. I guess they really will do anything to sell a car.

David Cook. On a side note, I'm kind of sad to have seen him won. I was hoping that Archuleta would get it... I worry that Cook won't be able to do an album that's "him" enough with AI behind it. If that makes any sense. Archuleta would've fit in their little mold perfectly. REading that back it sounds like I preferred Archuleta, but I was a total Cook fan from the beginning.

And I don't even have the words for that last story. Again. WTF?!!!!! I totally believe that she never recieved notification....those companies are so bloody shady it's not even funny.

I've rambled enough now, I think.
Have a great weekend.. and when are you going to be like your cool ass wife and post some pics from "T-Dude, the younger years"?

Jim - Stripes it is...get that man a cigar.

Agreed, sometimes it takes a white lady getting fucked by the system for people to notice the system is screwed up.

HMC - My bad one is Caddyshack quotes. The wife worked at a golf course in college and she can't stand hearing Caddyshack quotes. Apparently, it was on a continuous loop in the bar.

Early pics of me? Oh man...I don't know if that is such a good idea.
