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 – someGaster-nomics!

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”?
