Blood nougat

Have you ever tried to mop up a pool of blood? It's not easy to do. Blood is thicker than water and towels just seem to smear it around on whatever surface you're trying to clean and it drips off a towel or mop onto everything. After a day it starts to smell and by day 2 it stinks - like death - so even a little bit of blood left in the corner of your garage will fill the space with the rank smell of decay. It's one of the great failings of cinema that there is no ophactory element to violent entertainment - the stench of a summer blockbuster would have the Comic-Con nerds fleeing from the multiplex and vomiting their nachos, goobers and slushies on the mall parking lot.  No one but a Jeffery Dahmer type would be able to stand the smell of a TV in their home and forget about video games - They'd all be burned in mass demonstrations. But We the People can't smell the carnage so let's just sit back and "enjoy" it.

Blood Nougat
These are the thoughts that fill my mind this time of year - late October which means Halloween. Its a gigantic "holiday" in the USA and what used to be a spooky night of costume dress up and trick or treat mischief had morphed into a month long festival of ghoulish revelry. It's impact is felt everywhere (and by everywhere I mean everywhere) including the soft delicious nougat in my 3 Musketeers bar which has been colored blood red for "fun" and profit. How horrible it must have been to sit in on the marketing meetings for this product launch, choosing the color, writing the copy, approving the art work.

Why would anyone want to eat blood nougat? Imagine how bad it would smell if it were real blood. "Muskefears" is supposed to be... appetizing?

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers.
