Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy, published every other day.

John Bel Edwards

Bless his heart

Wins the Governor race in Louisiana. Pumpkin campaigned hard for his opponent. The voters of Louisiana stuck a finger in Pumpkin’s eye!

Here’s a video clip of Edwards’ victory speech (skip to 6:20):

For those of you unfamiliar with Southern USA patterns of speech, “Bless his heart” means something on a spectrum ranging from “What an asshole” at the good end, all the way to “F*ck him!”

Don’t Laminate Your List

Like Ross, here.

It’s a great scene on the surface but it also holds a real meaning. “Laminating your list” can be a metaphor for making your set of desires immutable, and not being prepared to flex when opportunities present themselves.

Don’t do that.

Sorry for late posting. Back on schedule tomorrow.

Dear Doctor

Blue-tinted, and kinda country-sounding.

Are The Rolling Stones not the first band that pops to mind for you after that description?

Me neither.

Watch the Footage

Or… you know… “read the transcript.”

In reality the Pumpkin-heads bellow, “read the transcript” because they know:

  • Most people will not bother…
  • But will assume that if supporters are yelling that…
  • The transcript is exculpatory

When you think about it, this is some amazingly cutting-edge lying! It’s as if there’s been bleeding edge research on the techniques of lying and bullshitting.

In fact, there probably has. I would love to peruse the literature but alas I do not read Russian.

Lazy Caturday

Alice is trying for one. She does like an unmade bed, she does.

But she’s too easily distracted by da hooman wif da cameraphoneclickything.

Gertrude, on the other hand, is a solid pro.

That’s some focus, that is.
