ST. LOUIS UPDATE

St. Louis is very exctited about this "World Series" thing, as we can see in this exclusive CrapCam photo showing Ridley and me being amazed by a downtown fountain that has been dyed a festive color that we think is supposed to be red.

First?

First?

FIRST??

Oops, it seems my computer wasnt being too nice. Umm, is there a point to that statue?

looks like someone washed red socks in the water - I did that to my laundry once, too.


There is something really disturbing about red water ...

I'm too disturbed to elaborate...

Unless, of course, it’s cherry flavored. .

Yep, StL is a baseball town. Let's hope our boys do us proud.

Oh, and curse or no curse, unless they're playing the Yankees the team with the second highest payroll is never the underdog.

That pic was taken in Kiener Plaza (I believe), where the statues are unique in that their hands are the same size as their heads. I believe the artist's name is Maria Aquilar, or something.

The statue is supposed to be a marathon runner....I think.

I dunno, Dave. To me, that looks like the same stuff they dumped on Carrie in the movie. Are you sure that's not a tribute to Stephen King and the RBRs?

The fountain outside of my building is red also, which I initially found scary until I told myself it's a fountain of Cosomopolitans.

...not to be confused with a fountain of COSMOpolitans.

Booger

Elle - Little do Dave and Ridley know, but the moaters got together last night and mixed the world's largest batch of hawaiian hunch punch in honor of Dave's appearance.
We swam around in it for a few hours, and the next think I remember is waking up next to Jeff and Djtonyb at Slyeyes' house strapped to a futon with saran-wrap and covered in silly string and seeing Tina and Bangi looking at us in a fairly disconcerting manner. We'll post the pictures later.

The problem with the Fountain O' Blood in St. Louis is that, HELLO, you're playing the RED Sox.

Someone did NOT think this through.

FED! You promised you wouldn't tell!!

Oh that reminds me, I need to buy more saran wrap.

Ssshhh. Big mouth.

Must be a trick of the light -- Dave's shirt does NOT look blue. Maybe it's just the crapcam.

Um... Hook 'em?

Ah ... the electric kool aid acid test, eh?

Got it now, elle.

Thanks.

Hey, I wonder if they spiked the punch?

I want some.

Looks like a volcano in the making. Uh . . . Dave, Ridley . . . might wanna move???

I'm beginning to get concerned that Dave can't go anywhere without Ridley. Or vice versa.

that is the blood from drive by shooting victims over in e st. louis.

Water turned to blood, very Biblical. St. Louis must be a very holy town - named for a saint and miracles in the streets. I'm calling my travel agent now.

Jessica, if Kerry is elected He will pass a bill on the Senate floor to reduce the city of St. Louis' current prision cells to bamboo shacks.

baywatcher: What the hell is a "prision"? Been here my whole life and never heard of that. You did't go to Maplewood didja? (Sorry fellow bloggers, only a St> louis person would get that, eh sleeyes?

I kicked the gorilla out of Maplewood. A prison is the place you have been all your life? Wasn't Maplewood demolished after the riot?

Angie - I saw Dave in Vegas. No sign of Ridley. He did have his blue shirt though.

I agree making a fountain red when both teams are red seems a little silly. Either way I hope for another slugfeast tomorrow night.

John Kerry is Boris karloff in drag

Let's review, First mistake:
1: Out of courtesy baywatcher should be Baywatcher.
2: > was totally wrong.
3: Never closed out my "(" with a ")"
Kat where are you I need a compliment!?!

so, how do you spell fart

IkNoW NoW. YoU Are From MaPLewOoD. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Also I spelled slyeyes wrong.

Baywatch: I don't know if your a local or not, but you hit the nail on the head!!!!LOL a little, it's kinda sad, although they say they're(not there) coming back. Now I'm LOL!

John Kerry assured a Milwaukee audience Friday he will support working women and their children if he's elected president. He sounds a little desperate. Most men don't offer to pay a woman's bills until she agrees to get breast implants.

Kinda mean Dave. Imean I did escape. Not far, but I can spell Fart. F um, a vowel, couple other letters. etc...
Wife wonders if you have any "extra"eries tickets?

Ps. I hate to admit it but she does multitask well. We could leave her at home!

S dammit, forgot the s

Yeah, red water just doesn't work. It looks a little too much like blood for my tastes. And of course having visited St. Louis I know this is not beyond them.

Whoops, didn't mean to post twice. Sorry about that.

I live her(not hear) and I'm embarresed about the pink arch. If you have to ask, don't bother!

Sorry, should have read EM-BARE-ASSED!
Gotta quit drinkin' and postin'

Ok, sorry but I have point out that while you did not use hear incorrectly, you did spell here as her. That must be kinda embarassing too huh?

Not really worried, I grew up in Maplewood, the fact that I speak in somewhat coherent sentences speaks volumes.
Now it's "f" "a" "consonant" "t". Damn almost got it.

"F" "A" "GERUND??" "T"

Can you be sure that the red in the fountain is not from the blood of musicians who were found to be off-key, out of sync or otherwise sucky and were stoned to death in the plaza??

"F" a gerund? How could this civilized conversation about bloodstained water have delved so far down into the gutter? What's really important to know is what Gerund specifically. Just so long as you stay away from vowels. Especially "I."

The blog is STREEEEEEEEEEETCHED!

Now Dave, that's where you're (not your) wrong.
The residents of St. Louis had a large scale Santeria goat slaughtering ritual
to ensure the future existence of the curse of the Bambino.

So what if the fountain is red even though we're playing the RED Sox? The game is in ST.LOUIS, so the red in St. Louis is for the home team.

And PeeJay, I endorse the cause for the Pink Arch, (breast cancer awareness) but agree that's not how a National Monument should be used.

The authentic "cardinal red" came from squeezing several thousand actual cardinals in a juicer.

Experts are now trying to find a good use for the leftover "cardinal pulp".

It looks like the guy in the statue is trying to run through fire... but that might be just the crapcam. Or maybe it's just me.

Looks as if an Ocean Spray™ truck tipped over. Its berry berry.

I'm the 56 poster!

Yeah!

Now, Cardinal Fang, tie her to the comfy chair.

NOBODY expects the spanish inquisition.

In honor of Ridley, Anyone else ever heard this old Riddle?:

I look like a black cat with a red bird in its (not it's) mouth. What am I?

And who stretched the Fekin Margins??!?!?!

Lashings to insue!!

Bangi- Ready the handcuffs!!

OH NO, NOT THE SPANISH INQUISITION!!

Mr. Fisher...

Would you be a black cat with a red bird in its mouth?

Can't say that's my favorite joke.

Hooray! Damn, Polly you are good!

But No.

I only APPEAR to be a black cat with red bird in its mouth.

Come closer for a better LQQK. ;)

Good morning all,

Who wants to place bets that tonight the Sox choke on the Curse of the Buckner Bambino? 2 games, 8 errors, and now they're playing in foreign terriroty near an industrial-sized vat of hunch punch.

Side note: In the election this year I'm forced to send in an absentee ballot. How do I write in Dave? I tried my usual crayons (brick red and sky blue), but they sent it back with a snippy letter about age requirements. I think they're just discriminating against us short-bus riders.

ps. The newest shipment of saran wrap and silly string should be arriving at Slyeyes' house this afternoon in anticipation of the RBR World Series Rock Concert Double Header and Drunken Goat Wrangling Convention. Hunch Punch will be provided. BYOCB.

By the way, whom do we drown in Hawaiian punch
for stretching the margins??

A black cat

JustPee stretched the margins.

Ok, guys.

(Hint:
You have to think outside the PG 13 bubble for the answer to the Riddle.)

TattleLeetie - Warmer!

And speaking of warmer,
In honor of our drowing the evil margin strecther in the Hawaiian punch, I JustPee 'd in it.

Stretching the margins: this is a bad thing. How do I ensure that I never do this? Is it something that I might do inadvertantly, and if so, how do I prevent it?

I've lived nearish to St. Louis my entire life, and I can guarantee you that every single citizen of this city is not only colorblind, but insane about the Cardinals as well. Personally, I don't get it, as when I was a child there was a cardinal that used to attack the rearview mirrors of my family's vehicles. Because he saw himself in them.

Kind of a metaphor for life, innit?

Neo, don't ever type something without a break,
such as "ahhhhhhhhetc" that goes on for several
lines in the section where you write.

As you can see, it's darn annoying and causes
normally mild-mannered bloglits to start plotting
torturous demises of the offenders.

Neo - you stretch the margins when you type something very long with no spaces, like Hahahahaaaaaa (etc.) Way back when, even Dave did it when he announced he was going on vacation by typing "Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh" with about seventy-five more h's.

Note - first offenders are given a noodle lashing. Second offenders are given no punishment, because we know they like it.

Slyeyes: I meant to tell you, but when I
mentioned your high school to my Webster
roommate, this was his reaction:

"Ueww."

He also asked me to point out he's played
in the Turkey Day game.

I really don't get you St.L-ians. :)

The Cardinals in my backyard kept nesting in my Red Top bushes and eating the berries off of them all winter. Then in the spring, the berries had fermented and the dang birds went around the yard wobbling and trying to get off of their feet! They weren't in any shape for Spring practice, fur sure!
Dave, that was a good picture of you standing in front of the fountain in St Louis. My sister and I spent many summers in St. Louis visiting out cousin in South St. Louis and later in Webster Grove. She lives in Baldwin, now.

Baywatcher, I must have missed something. How did we get on the suject of old horseface John Kerry?

Watch your "B"s Jessica R.

Nothing is more scary than Ketchup King Kerry.

GO CARDS!

Angie...tell him Kirkwood has possession of the Bell....and we aim to keep it at this year's Turkey Day Game.

GO 'WOOD!!!

I'm sure he's told you that the Kirkwood/Webster Turkey Day Game is the oldest high school rivalry west of the Mississippi.

Really, you should try and come for one of the games. Thousands of people there.... We put the turkeys in the oven...and head for the game. I usually come home at half-time to finish things up. One year they were interviewing a local fireman. He was talking about how nervous he gets on Turkey Day...."all those ovens on and no one home."

Tons of fun.

Fisher: Is it a coochie?!

Mrooooowwwww!

DING! DING! DING!

We've got a winner!

Johnny, tell her what she's won.

A lifetime supply of Earwigs!

(Pre-recorded Thunderous applause)

Coohie, coochie, coo.......Great job Leetie!

Tune in tommorrow to catch another mentally disturbing episode of "In the mind of Fish"

(Has no one ever heard that phrase uttered by their grandfather before? Or am I the only one?)

DING! DING! DING!

We've got a winner!

Johnny, tell her what she's won.
