Dog Pwnd 2

He’s a retriever who works for a repo-man. What did you expect it to do? Note that he drives off with his head out the window, just like we do on

Amazing Car Uses No Fossil Fuels

It’s true. It uses no fossil fuels, has no exhaust, and emits ZERO pollutants. It uses no fuel whatsoever, making it the ideal transportation for eco-tards.
Energy Efficient 1hp car

The vehicle comes with an optional 1hp engine, but you gotta house it, feed it and groom it, or the car doesn’t move. It eats a hella lotta carbon-based fuel and emits methane, but at least you can tool around town at the speed of about 20 miles per bale.

Speaking of tooling around town, it’s always time for tools on a low-emissions edition of The Overnight Open Thread.

Kinky Friedman On Rick Perry: An Unsurprising Endorsement

Singer, songwriter, humorist, rogue politician and the World’s Most Famous Jewish Cowboy Kinky Friedman penned a piece praising his former opponent, Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Rick Perry has never lost an election; I’ve never won one. Maybe that’s what’s wrong with the world. On the other hand, I’ve long been friends with Bill Clinton and George W., and Rick Perry and I, though at times bitter adversaries, have remained friends as well. It’s not always easy to maintain friendships with politicians. To paraphrase Charles Lamb, you have to work at it like some men toil after virtue.

I have been quoted as saying that when I die, I am to be cremated, and the ashes are to be thrown in Rick Perry’s hair. Yet, simply put, Rick Perry and I are incapable of resisting each other’s charm. He is not only a good sport, he is a good, kindhearted man, and he once sat in on drums with ZZ Top. A guy like that can’t be all bad. When I ran for governor of Texas as an independent in 2006, the Crips and the Bloods ganged up on me. When I lost, I drove off in a 1937 Snit, refusing to concede to Perry. Three days later Rick called to give me a gracious little pep talk, effectively talking me down from jumping off the bridge of my nose. Very few others were calling at that time, by the way. Such is the nature of winning and losing and politicians and life. You might call what Rick did an act of random kindness. Yet in my mind it made him more than a politician, more than a musician; it made him a mensch.

Read the rest.

For those not familiar with Mr. Friedman’s artistry and wit, it’s rarely politically correct, but usually amusing.

By 1971, Friedman had formed his second band, Kinky Friedman and The Texas Jewboys, which many took to be a play on the name of the famous band Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys. In keeping with the band’s satirical nature, each member had a comical name: in addition to Kinky there was Little Jewford, Big Nig, Panama Red, Wichita Culpepper, Sky Cap Adams, Rainbow Colours, and Snakebite Jacobs. More conventionally named roadie Jack Slaughter and road manager Dylan Ferrero rounded out the crew and provided most of the driving of the “tour bus”, a Cadillac with 10-year-old expired license plates and a nasty predilection for going into a coma at the most inconvenient moment (but, according to Friedman, her talent lay in her ability to stop on a dime and pick up the change).

Kinky Friedman & The Texas Jewboys’ “Assho From El Paso” was a snarky response to Merle Haggard’s “Okie From Muskogee.”


And with that we’ll continue on to another non-politically correct edition of
