...is often alcohol-related.

Key Quote:
A fracas broke out at Hogs and Heifers Saloon on Monday night when a little person in an Oompa Loompa costume took offense at being called a midget.

tsk, tsk...Hogs & Heifers is usually such a classy joint. There goes the neighborhood.

(and here come the short jokes.)


Dang, Annie!

I disagree that Roald Dahl would be horrified. He would more likely have found it funny.

"Now, don't get short with me."

Annie, how dare you make fun of midgets! That's rather small-minded of you.

He was a little on edge, huh?

When is it OK for a gal to slap an Oompa Loompa?

How come I never get invited to the fun parties?


You think he sang an earworm while slugging the other guy?

The message here, said Beacher: "Don't call an Oompa Loompa a midget."

Unless the oompa loompa midget is named Wee Matt. Then have at it!

When the Oompa Loompa says, "Gee, your hair smells terrific!"

Rosie - sorry.

"Oompa oompa oompa-dee-do
Wee Matt's mad and he's coming for you."

"They were hired as entertainment for Rattle, Rumble & Roll Night, an outing for hot rod aficionados, including the Knuckle Draggers Car Club."

So they hired midgets as their hands were already downat that level? Again, I wish I was there to see it. And at the Hogs & Heifers Saloon too!

"Oompa oompa oompa-dee-do
Smack him in the head with yer dragon tattoo."

"Short-smackin's fine if it's once in a while,
Keeps them in line and it brightens your smile,
But it's absurd and incredibly wrong,
Dissing midgets all.. day.. long!"

It's a small's world after all.

Annie, it's not nice to laugh about people's shortcomings.

Further research reveals that Wee Matt should switch to short beer:

Oompas Invade Vegas

Wee Matt (short clip, ahem)

Beer and Bloating in Las Vegas

Key quote: "Once in the VIP area, Artie egged-on Wee Matt (a little person star in Jeff Beacher's Madhouse comedy show at the Joint) to chug his beer. Wee Matt obliged, then looked up at Artie and vomited on his leg and all over Artie's VIP table.

"Artie and the gang were laughing hysterically at the pukefest. Artie said, 'Wow, I've never seen a midget throw up before.' What happens in Vegas ... sometimes doesn't stay down."

SNORK at CJ up there!

That isn't the first fight he's been in either. He sure has a short fuse!

I passed through vegas 6 weeks ago on my way home from Iraq, and the only exciting thing that happened to me there was that I GOT MARRIED to my definitely not height challenged 6'4" fiance. we didn't see even one single fracas (fraci?) breaking out, although we came close when some wedding chapel people started chasing us after we refused their "services." yikes.

Welcome back azred.

azred, welcome back and congrats!!!! Thank you for your service!!!

Welcome Back! And Congratulations!

Let's throw a party...I'll hire the Oompa Loompas!

Wow azred, long time since we've seen you in these here parts! Congratulations!

Azred-Glad you are home safe and congrats. Thanks for your sacrifice. I thought my ex was tall at 5-10.

Azred -- so that's where you've been! Good to see your pixels here again. And let me chime in with the others in thanking you for your service.

How cool that Dave blogs my old friend Norm Clarke's column! We sure miss Norm here in Denver -- his successor is entirely too fond of talking about herself not as much fun to read. (DISCLAIMER: The columns she wrote during her successful battle with cancer are exempt from the above snarky comment.)

Well, we weren't short on comments about this one, were we? And, Azred, welcome back! Your new bride sounds like she could be related to me. My nieces are both over 6'....

Welcome home, azred! Haven't met you yet, but I'm awfully appreciative of the service. Thank you. I hope you have a very smooth transition home. God bless you.

If I recall correctly (and Wyo's blogit page helps my memory) azred is a woman of the female gender.

Welcome home and congratulations, az!

Proud to have you back, Azred.
