Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

The wife beaters are on permanent sale. Also, back around the holidays (since we libruls have stolen Christmas), Wally World had a talking, singing deer head... perfect for mounting over the fake mantle in the ol' double-wide.

Oh wait, that was Dwight Yoakum. I gets those country singing boys confused, MMm MMm.

A 5-CD set of Garth Brooks' greatest hits?

Such a monstrosity exists?!

All's lost, then. We went out with neither a bang nor a whimper. We went out with a drawl.

Too bad I can't hibernate. I think I can den, tho...

What the heck were you doing shopping at Wal-Mart? And here I thought you were "Badtux the socially-conscious Penguin".

I like my women just a little on the shady side.

Hmm, Red State, you don't recall my tire saga?

AZ Goddess, "wife beaters" refers to those white-trash t-shirts that the perps on "Cops" are always wear when the cops swoop into their trailer park to arrest them for beating their wife. Typically with giant yellow stains under the armpits and beer-and-ketchup stained elsewhere (or maybe that's blood stains from their wife's split lips). I'm not sure that country music stars actually wear these things, any more than George W. Bush is a real cowboy (he's scared of horses, so that kinda rules him out as a real cowboy), but their listeners sure do!

Mimus -- yes, the end times are surely upon us :-). Penguins don't den, they migrate. Sounds like it might be time for my migration shortly, hmm...

I'm stunned. I had no idea Garth Brooks had cut enough songs to make 5 CDs. There is no justice on this side of the Styx.

Penguins don't den, but bears do. I'm not a bear, I just live like one that has furniture. And denning sounds real nice right about now...

Okay, I followed the link and read about your dilemma. I understand. I assume you did the appropriate penance, and if you didn't I don't want to know.
