At least he didn't upload a cock shot…….

Like one of the homies that shall remain nameless but Anthony Weiner certainly should have known better.

Petor OTOH has been sending out me$$age$ like this one for years. One of my all time favorites linked the following video. Continue reading “At least he didn't upload a cock shot…….”

SLABBED not exactly Daily – August 17, 2010

No doubt insurance claims handling after Katrina is reflected in the population loss reported for two of Mississippi’s three Coastal counties:

Here’s a glance at population gains and losses in selected Mississippi counties, according to the Census Bureau website…

Harrison: 189,601 in 2000; estimated 181,191 in 2009. (Down 8,410)
Hancock: 42,967 in 2000; estimated 40,962 in 2009. (Down 2,005)

Opponents of multi-peril insurance offer no alternative for storm victims, an editorial in Sunday’s Sun Herald took the U.S. Chamber of Commence to task for its opposition to Congressman Taylor’s legislation:

The failure of private insurance companies to offer wind coverage to home and business owners in the nation’s coastal regions ought to compel Congress to add wind coverage to the National Flood Insurance Program.

Yet Congressman Gene Taylor’s proposal to do just that is stalled in the House of Representatives.

A primary opponent of Taylor’s proposal is the United States Chamber of Commerce, which four years, eleven months and two weeks after Hurricane Katrina still does not understand the severity of this situation…

If you do business on either the Gulf Coast or the Atlantic Coast, we urge you to contact the U.S. Chamber and urge them to support the only alternative to financial ruin being offered to coastal residents and businesses. Their address is: U.S. Chamber of Commerce; 1615 H St., NW; Washington, DC 20062-2000. Their phone number is (202) 659-6000 and their Web site is uschamber.com.

Will he or won’t he. Brett Favre calling it quits?

We begin with my post from September 2009, To the Superbowl and Beyond, actually Nowdy’s comment left on the post after I made it sticky following the NFC Championship game. Brett took a playoff caliber beating and Nowdy took umbrage.

Just before the kickoff of Superbowl week, Rick Cleveland at the Clarion Ledger posted a blog entry which contained pictures of Brett’s ankle and hammie. Someone from Team Favre must have complained because Cleveland pulled the entry.  Unfortunately it spread like wildfire in the Who Dat Nation of which the Slabbed Nation is a part so without further adieu here is the pic of the troublesome ankle from Cleveland’s blog purportedly taken after the NFC Championship: Continue reading “Will he or won’t he.

On the road to the NFC Championship game Peter Finney finds the Broke Spoke

Pete must have had some of Stevie’s white lightning out of the back because he slaughtered a few of the names in his otherwise entertaining piece. Like I said I can’t explain the attraction other than to simply accept that Hancock County’s most famous beer bar has become a cultural phenomenon in a positive way. The commenters to Finney’s column don’t get it as a group though one obviously did.

Great story, awesome place. Fell off a bar stool once there.

Here is a snippet of the Finney’s column:

Steve Haas is wearing a Viking purple shirt in the midst of, let’s call it, roadhouse decor.

There are pool tables, a wooden stove, and a sign that says, “Green Bay City Limits, Population 96,466.”

Hanging from the ceiling are fishing lures, T-shirts, baseball caps and bras, many of them autographed. Continue reading “On the road to the NFC Championship game Peter Finney finds the Broke Spoke”
