Hey, Look, Categories!

For you whiners who want me to write more, how about hitting the nifty new 'category' links over there on the left and catch up on some stuff you might have missed? Really, it's still good.

Zero Empathy

Yeah, I haven't been writing again. I've been uber-busy, and training a new lackey. He's working out so far, so hopefully my output can increase.

It's basically a $300 barrel and stock kit for your 1911 that turns your .45 sidearm into […]

Notes From The Culturally Impaired, and Further Thoughts On Ricebois

'Splain something to me: what the hell are these nouns referring to, and why would an adult wish to pay money to advertise them on his body? Fubu G-Unit 50 Cent Thug 'Phat' Farm (sic) Join us next week on WTF? for: 20" chrome rims on '85 Chevy Caprices: Why This? Why Now? Personally, I'd […]

And Now A Report From The “Obvious” Desk…

Singer Boy George Arrested on Drug Charge No, really? What tipped them off?


Should you enter my store wearing one of these, in this mode:You may be fired upon. I predict that these terror-hoodies will have a very short lifespan in America. [H/T: Michelle Malkin]
