Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Unpleasant Suprises edition

Morning, people.

I was sitting here Friday afternoon when the funniest thing happened – the capstone for this week’s post just fell into my lap,

I was looking at my Facebook feed and saw something funny – something that the Freeperati turned out to be connected with – so I kinda backed into this one, starting with teh funneh and ending up at Freeperville, where this was on display – some Gaster-nomics!

Georgia lumberyard owner hammers Obama on ‘You didn’t build that’

President Obama’s message to entrepreneurs that “you didn’t build that” prompted one Georgia business owner to respond with a not-so-subtle retort.

“I built this business without gov’t help. Obama can Kiss my ass,” reads the sign outside Gaster Lumber & Hardware in Savannah, Ga. Owner Ray Gaster posted that and two similar ones at all three of his company’s locations in response to Obama’s comments during a speech to supporters in Virignia, which struck a nerve with small business owners around the nation.

Wow – I’m suprised he didn’t tell the President to “suck my dick”.
But I digress.

I’ll have the chicken sandwich with a side of 2×4’s.

The 2x4s are probably more nutritious, and definitely tastier.

This picture started circulating through the lumber industry on Monday. By yesterday I had received it at least three times. It has gone viral since then.

God Bless Ray Gaster and America

I’m sorry – “viral” and “lumber industry” aren’t two phrases that belong on the same continent, much less in the same sentence.
It’s like saying “lulz” and “insurance salesman”.
Really wanna see some “viral”?
OK.
