In the Sporting News Today ...............

"Giant slalom Kills and Eats American Skier During Italian Event."

KITZBÃHEL, Austria: Before thousands of terrified onlookers, a Giant Slolom, attacked and killed American Skier, Lindsey Kildow yesterday............. Shown here in her unsuccessful race against the Giant Creature, moments before The Giant Slolom pounced.

After overtaking the skier, the creature killed and devoured Mrs Kildow in full view of horrified spectators.

Rolf Vedrsane, an eyewitness stated "The creature pulled her down from behind and began eating her alive in front of all of us. It was horrible! She never had a chance. So we left and got Hooters Buffalo Wings."

OK, maybe I just dreamed it.

Overheard in the ER ...........

Tech - What do you call a guy with no arms, no legs and an 18 inch Schlong?

Nurse - Partially Handicapped.
Bears and Colts in the Superbowl..............
Who would'a guessed it. My dream matchup will actually occur in a couple weeks. Growing up a Bears fan and adopting the Colts over the years since my move from "Da Region", well, this is perfect.

Should be a good game and I conned one of my coworkers to work for me on Superbowl Sunday so I can actually see the game. I've worked weekends for so many years I can't remember the last Superbowl I saw.

The '85 Bears and Patriots game was the last one that I had any significant interest in.

Congrats to both Teams.

Eagles Today!!!!!
Went down to one of the area State Parks today to see if I could spot a few eagles. They have a problem with an over abundance of Shad (A type of Fish) in this particular place. It seems that they have found that by lowering the lake level, it makes the Shad easier prey for the Eagles. So, the Eagles migrate over from the Hotel California, or where ever it is they hang out at normally and eat the shit out of Shad. Someone should inform PETA about this State Sponsored Shad Genacide. OK, maybe not.

I have no idea just how they inform the Eagles that the lake level has been dropped. But damn if there isn't a shitload of Eagles there now.

I counted 11 at one time sitting and flying around the lake.

Here's a couple of crappy pics that I took with my crappy little camera. They were about 100 yards from me here.

There were a shitload of them in this tree. About 200 yards and maxing out the camera. I'm gonna have to break down and look into getting a decent camera.

Unfortunately, the Eagles have been over there for a couple of months and I wasn't aware of it. From what I hear though, they're gonna leave the lake level down for a few more weeks. So I should be able to go check 'em out a few more times before they all head back to wherever it is they normally hang out at.

This is to Damn Strange to Pass on ...........
I was getting ready to hit the sack. Till I saw THIS WEIRD ASS SHIT over at SondraK's.

No, really. This is the craziest shit I've seen in a long time. Instant Pucker Factor of 9.5.
Just a little "Snippet" of the news article - " Row over angry, penis-removing doctor".

Jeebus, what do ya do then?
Have a cookout I guess.
OK, off to bed.
Early appointment in the am.
Y'all Will Have to Forgive Me ........
I have been remiss. So much going on here lately. I'm asshole deep in a couple of projects and may or may not get something interesting up here in the near future.

Or ................ I may go to the beach.

I set that picture as the background on my monitor here at home. Just as a gross out device. Worked well on Dogboy last night.
I swiped this from Professor Schlong, Like I do a lot of the shit I have here. The Man is a genius.

SteveH at Hog on Ice Had one of the most succinct and to the point things to say about how "We are using the credit of The Greatest Generation" that I've read anywhere. It's short, so if you're in a hurry - or a Moron, it's painless. Just go read it. You'll be a better person for it.

Almost time for lunch. Gotta run.

Hi Honey, I'm Home!!!!
Actually, I returned from the short R&R / Mental Hygiene Cleansing last Friday Night. But the near constant rainfall has been working it's usual magic on my, tenuous at the best of times, internet access. Coupled with the need to make a living, which requires me to work every Saturday and Sunday ................... Well, you get the picture. If this were Radio, it'd be lots of "Dead Air".

Many who know me well would say that "Dead Air" is a perfect description of what's inside my head. Hey, matters not.

OK, I'd love to talk more, but the garage door opener just took a shit and I have to go see if I can salvage the thing or not.

The cash never stops leaking from my wallet.

Behave Yourselves ........
I'm heading off for a few days of R&R. Dogboy will be manning the walls and keeping the perimeter clear of threats here at the "GrumpyUnk Command and Control Bunker". Along with taking care of the Dogs and the Chickens.

I'll be back Friday.

I'll leave Jim Redman here to keep an eye on you Knuckleheads. I love that picture.

I'm Certain This Will Surprise You ..........

The Iranian Government is actively involved in killing American troops in Iraq.

OK, maybe that's not too surprising. It really shouldn't be. We've known for quite some time that the Iranian's have been supplying the Terrorists with Shape charged explosives used in roadside bombs.


This Shit is not debatable anymore. And needs to dealt with. Soon.

The Iranians have been waging war on us for what, 28 years? It's time to start killing some of those ShitWeasels. The Revolutionary Council and that Asshole, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would be a good place to start.

Michael Ledeen has a few thoughts on the situation you should read.

Where the hell has the MSM been on this shit? It's not like this is the first instance of Iranian and Syrian involvement in our Servicemembers deaths.

OH shit. (Slapping self in forehead.) What the hell am I thinking? There's a lot DickCheeses in the Media that are actively rooting for the other side.

Hey, it's still hard for me to grasp that.

OK. Required Reading Time ..................

I missed this somehow when It was published back in December.

Just go read Honoring Those Who Died By Orson Scott Card.

No commentary.

Just go read it.
Cool Video .........
I don't watch a whole lot of the video things that are out there on the web. Mostly because I have a shitty slow dialup connection. But I saw this one at several places in the last 24 hours and took the time (Lots of time) and downloaded it.

It was worth it.

I've never tried to link directly to YouTube, so I'll just link to where I watched it at. Cool-Funny Spider Video at QandO Blog.

Worth a quick check for a good laugh.

I FIXED THE LINK! Sorry about not checking it. Not sure why the first link didn't work.
"Dammit Jim! I'm a Nurse. Not a computer technician!"
Dr. McCoy voice- off.
New Years Resolutions ??????????
I generally gave up on them years ago. But this year? I've decided that I'm gonna start getting more involved with supporting our troops.

Yep, The Good Queen Buffness and I are going to start a monthly donation to Soldiers Angels

I know that our little bit ain't gonna be much, but if lot's of folks dropped a few dimes into the kitty it can make a difference. Seems like the least we could do.

IN RELATED NEWS: I was just over at KAT'S PLACE and She's got a drive going to collect cards for Valentines Day for the troops. Go check it out HERE. Do it now. She's really out in front on doing good things for the Troops. I'll try to get her on the links list here later today.

I'd like to encourage you, if you're not already, to start the New Year off with a Resolution to show some support for our Troops. Just take a few minutes and check out the Service Support Organizations over on the links section. That's an easy way to get started.

Thanks Y'all, Unk.

Weirdest Search Referral Yet ...............
It's pretty entertaining to look thru the sitemeter and see where and how people get to this place. The fact that there's only 20-30 people a day come by here makes it pretty easy too. I'm not at all interested in traffic, so I don't give a shit about that anyway.

It is pretty neat to see where folks come from. Unfortunately, I can only see where about half of the visitors come from and about the same number as to how they found the place. Seems that a lot of ISP providers, and from what I can tell, lot's of individuals have some way of keeping that info from being displayed on the Sitemeter.

But every once in awhile, you get a weird ass Google or Yahoo search string. Like this one -

Yes, Virginia. The search string really DOES read like this:


I'm sure there is:
1) A good reason why anyone would use this particular combination of words on a Google search. No. I can't think of any either.
2) Why the hell my site shows up as the #1 return!

I forgot to get a screen grab of the Sitemeter page. But if memory serves me, the referral came from somewhere in Ireland.

OK. Since we're on the subject of referrals and where the hell you all come from-

I'd appreciate it if you would drop a line in the comments once in awhile. Thanks.

Where the hell is Coralville, Iowa?

You, Up there in Hammond! Are you somebody I know?

You school Teachers. Go rag on Chief for me. No particular reason. Your closer than me, that's all.

It Looked Like A Casting Call ............

For the next George Romero Flick. You Couldn't swing a dead cat in the ER without hitting a Zombie today.

I love the Holidays.

Zombies you haven't seen in years come out to the ER. Zombies that have moved away and are here to visit their Zombie relatives come to the ER. Zombie Wives. Zombie Kids. Zombie in laws.
Zombies who are just passing through to .......... Wherever the hell they go to when they're not in my ER. THEY come and and fill my ER.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Newlywed Zombies.
Not really. That's Kathy and Bill.

No, I don't know who the hell they are. I found the picture on Google. But Hey, ya oughta get credit for a pic like that.

And the ONE THING all of those Zombies had in common today? Well, this may shock some of you, but ........ They ALL need Narcotic pain medicine. Oh, Benzos and Soma will suffice in a pinch. Thank you very much.

"I fell down down and dropped my open medicine bottle into the toilet".
"My 2 year old threw my medicine out the car window".

Those are both Zombie Tales I've heard before. I didn't get any quite that creative today. Hey, a really good story may score you a script for a few Percocet, people. Get your head into the game!

The place was a friggin' Zombie zoo today. The faster we moved them through, the more of them came through the doors. Probably didn't help that there's a full moon out.

As I've said before. If you've ever wondered why it takes so long to get seen by a Doctor? Thank a Zombie.

Yeah, you deal with these shitbags for any length of time and you'll hate 'em as much as I do.

Happy New Year ........

Ya Chowderheads!!

Just Me and the Mrs here at the "Official GrumpyUnk Command and Control Bunker" today.

New Years Eve at the ER was unbelievably calm. A blessing and welcome relief from the pounding we've been getting the last couple of weeks.

I'm planning on doing a lot of nothing today. Football? I'm sure. I don't even know what games are on or who's playing. No matter.

You Numbskulls enjoy yourselves.

UPDATE: Well, it looks like I'm going in to work for awhile anyway. They're short handed again today. I'm sure the place will be stacked and packed with Zombies and there little Zombie Spawn. So I'm gonna go help out.

I must be Nuckin' Futz.
