Lighter Fare For Friday

It has been a serious week.

Let’s have something a little less heavy.

First, some memes that amused me.

 

For a long-time reader who works for NASA

Driving.

And now to make you suffer.

For the libs here.

Welllll… you do know you are dead, but you get the point.

And for the Trump supporters.  Spotted at the store.

Okay… enough of those.

On a cheery note, you know that a bishop has really made it when he gets his very own

BOBBLE-HEAD!

Congratulations to Bp. Hying, of Madison.  You’ve finally arrived at the apotheosis of the episcopate.

Speaking of Madison, yesterday I had some of the best BBQ I have ever had anywhere.

In MADISON!   Wisconsin!!

Beef brisket.

Pork ribs.  Chewy and tender at the same time.  Outstanding.

I am sad and glad that it is on the other side of town.

In any event, something lighter for Friday.

It’s been a tough week.

Some sharing options...

    Isn’t there a commandment somewhere about teasing your neighbor? Now you need to GO TO CONFESSION.

    Looks like it has been too long since the good padre visited Kansas City.

    It has indeed been too long. I look forward to an invitation and some great time catching up.

    However, even by your standards this guy’s got game. There are cases of awards and medals in this fellows shack from the highest levels.

    The Planet of the Apes stunt is hilarious. As for the gentleman driving the jeep, nothing says Open Carry like a .50 Cal.

    Brings to mind another great meme: GySgt. R Lee Ermey barking at a platoon of new recruits: “There is no racism in this platoon, you are all equally worthless!”

    That BBQ looks really good.

    Congrats to Bp. Hying. [Yut!]

  7. Kent Wendler says:

    Father, I was going to ask if you had tried Ella’s Deli, but I see it closed. But I guess there is still Das Essen Haus. (However, I don’t think I could eat those portions any more.)

    [I don’t hesitate to take food home.]

  8. TheBackPew says:

    I’m beginning to think a pilgrimage may be in order. We can start and end in Gower for spiritual nourishment and find a few spots in between for physical sustenance via smoked animal muscles rendered low and slow. And it’s probably time to recalibrate…. the vortex .

  9. John Pomeroy says:

    A twitter thing from John Dvorak (whom I’ve been reading since what…. 1980 and BYTE?)
    A priest was talking to a group of kids about “being good” and going to heaven.
    At the end of his talk, he asked, “Where do you want to go?”
    “Heaven! Heaven!” Yelled Little Lisa.
    “And what do you have to be to get there?” asked the priest.
    “Dead!” Yelled Little Johnny.

    Thanks…My wife and I enjoyed these very much. Agreed….The NASA idea would have been classic.

  11. They call it “chopped”. And it’s really good.

    Surely not on Friday!

    A Chuck Norris meme.

    When Chuck Norris attends a feminist rally he comes back with his shirt ironed and a sandwich.
