Psalm 37: He Fades Away

The Heart of Christ

For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth

Socialization, Aye

Jokes I Like to Tell

Once there was a small, mousy looking man who was seated at a bar, having a drink. He was minding his own business, sitting quietly at the end of the bar. He would come in at the same time every day, and sit in the same place, have his beer, and depart after about twenty minutes.

One day, a new guy came in, a big boisterous bullying man. It didn’t take him long to notice the quiet man at the bar, and he went over to him immediately in order to harass him. Picking him up, he threw him across the room easily. He then went over to him, lying on the floor, stood over him, and said, “That was judo from Japan!” Laughing he walked away.

The next day almost the same thing happened. This time though, after he knocked the small man head over heels, he walked over to him, looked down on him, and said, “That was karate from Korea.” And laughing he walked away again.

The third day, the small man saw the bully coming in, quickly paid his bill, and left before the bully had a chance to do anything. The bully sat down at the bar, ordered a beer, and sat there laughing at the timidity of the small man.

Suddenly everything went black, and a few minutes later, the bully came to, lying flat on his back, and he was blinking at the ceiling. He could see, stooping over him, the worried looking face of the bartender. When he was fully conscious, the bartender said, “The little guy said to tell you that it was a tire iron from Western Auto.”

You couldn’t have worked jiu-jitsu from Brazil in there somewhere? ;)

Wilson’s racial comment is wrong and especially inappropriate on the sixth anniversary of the Mother Emanuel Church slayings. At best, he’s tone deaf. At worst, he just doesn’t care.

Wow, Clay, glad to see I’m still living rent-free in your head. You must live a really boring life. Once they lift the eviction moratorium, I’ll start charging. As much as you may love taxpayer-funded “free” stuff, it can’t last forever.

Here are some stories to warm your heart.

Nothing says #blacklivesmatter like loudly ignoring the thousands of blacks slain every year at the hands of other blacks.

Don’t you have a knee to bend at the George Floyd statue in Newark?

That’s not how this works. If you object to a comment, cite it and connect your detailed objections to the actual words. You can’t just wave your hands and claim “anyone who thinks can realize that this unspecified thing, designated entirely by vaguely negative adjectives, is bad”. (I mean, you can, but that’s intellectual dishonesty.) Is it in the video? (I don’t generally watch videos, but I would make an exception if I needed to.) Is it the joke about the bully picking random exotic-sounding descriptions for perfectly mundane actions? Is it, perhaps, even the meme about 8-year-olds realizing they… Read more »

I second both the question–“What racial comment?”–and your full-throated response.
