Smartassery in Wisconsin

Having a sense of humor can be dangerous. The winger echo chamber is jumping all overJoe Biden’s so-called latest “gaffe.” It’s not a gaffe in my view, just banter that the literal minded are hyperventilating over. It’s not a big fucking deal:

    Amen to that. I can’t believe how many people are jumping all over this and screaming like crazy. I was in Milwaukee this weekend and the people there are like, “What? Who gives a shit? And if he wants good custard, he should try Leon’s too!”
    Why do we need a damned round-table, tribunal, breathlessly analytic approach to every time some elected official drops a cuss? Unless Obama steps out on to the lawn of the White House and says “Fuck” about a million times should we give a shit about this. And even then, it’s iffy. I’d be completely fine if my president stepped to the mic and said, “My fellow Americans, I’ve just returned from the Gulf Coast and it is fucked up beyond all recognition. And just so you know, those fucking cocksuckers at BP will be paying to clean all this shit up.”
    The only time I care if I’m cursing is when I’m around other people’s kids. My own kid? She’ll pick it up eventually, regardless of what I’m doing. I just don’t need a colleague telling me it’s my fault his/her kid called someone a cocksucker on the playground.

    If he did that – I’d swoon! 🙂 In a good way. Also.

    I was just at Kopps last weekend. Root beer custard with white chocolate covered pretzels. It was intensely weird and insanely good. Mr. A and I went through a quart in about three days.
    OM NOM NOM

    I’m not wild about strawberry ice creams and custards. Think it dates from my summers working at this farm-stand type store where we’d make fresh custard every week, usually with whatever fruit, and you wouldn’t think you could get sick of that but oh, yeah.
    Amaretto chocolate covered cherries, though? OMG.
    We have a Culver’s down here but it’s not the same thing. Goddamn if every time I go up to Wisconsin I don’t come home with a car full of food.

    the custard is pink amaretto flavored w/ chocolate covered cherries. golden gyros is on lincoln between 60th and 76th. can’t remember exactly, but on the south side. i am sure the custard web site will have the flavor list. they also have good HUGE burgers and fries.
    biden should have said obama DID lower peoples taxes if they were under $100k.
