If You Would...

UPDATE: Smike came through splendidly; he even got to go home the same day! Probably be off of work a few weeks, but that's better than the alternative. He's in recoup mode now.

Please say a prayer for my brother Smike (the aforementioned groundhog slayer), who is having what is pretty close to emergency gall bladder surgery in the morning.

He's a good man.
Besides being a stubborn-ass and putting off things too long and landing in the hospital.

And I do have some GBR posting coming up, too.
And I know Smike wants to see the pics.

Also, please say some prayers and send good vibes for my friend Todd.
He's 41 with kids and is fighting a valiant battle against his cancer.

Thanks to all in advance.

Son of A...! That Thing is Huge!!

Update: I have no clue what is up with the spacing between the text and the pics...sorry.
Update II: That's a little better, but not perfect. Blogger changed how they insert carriage returns in the html code. Grrrrr.
Update III: Blogger is gay.


With the debates going on, I know you all are ready for something disgusting, lifeless and smelly, to continue the American political tradition.

Now that is one big freaking groundhog, let me tell ya.
My brother Smike finally nailed it, after several attempts.



















You may thing it was cute, but they are mean, nasty, ill-tempered property destroying pests.
Bro smike had a heck of a time getting it, because it was so big the conibear trap would slip off around its head! He finally had to block alternate exits and reinforce one hole in the ground to force the little hellspawn to go further into the trap.














Next, a size 11 daisy stomper for reference.



















This specimen went at about 21 pounds.
A fitting end for a destructive little beyotch...



















Ayup, that bugger is deader than the Constitution, the Posse Comitatus Act and Habeas Corpus combined!

Your New Debt Ceiling

Courtesy of the armed robbery of America, the bailout, the Rescue Package:

Subsection (b) of section 3101 of title 31, United States Code, is amended by striking out the dollar limitation contained in such subsection and inserting in lieu thereof $11,315,000,000,000.

Yes, that is $11.3 trillion (which is over 3 trillion more than the original $8.1 trillion).
I wonder why they needed to add that...hmmmmm.
