In self defense

Beware the banjo!

Since my lovely (read, soooo gonna get smacked) brother Tardist posted this on his site, I thought I would just go ahead and show you guys before you were told about this by someone else.

I'm thinkin' I was about 4 here, and I need to inform you that I was the Hooded Claw (the villain who was the bane of Penelope Pitstop of Wacky Races fame). Of course I would pick a villain to emulate. Did you really think I was gonna be Penelope Pitstop?

And the banjo? Let's just say it was the Banjo of Death. And if you'd heard me play it, you wouldn't have to ask why.

Rebel, on the other hand, is only chewin' on my cape until he can get 'hold of some of my jammies and tear the crotch out.

Anybody ever wonder why my parents didn't let 'em drown me in the baptismal font?

24 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

Rebel is awesome. My dog used to hang onto my bathrobe when I was a kid. She never ate my jammies crotches, though. She liked to get into the used Maxi-pads, though. What a lesbian.

Yeah, well, don't underplay the "Banjo of Death" too much, Bucky. My grandfather was banjoed once when he was in his late 30's and ever since then he wasn't able to have children. I heard of a fellow in Las Vegas who got banjoed and as a result had to spend the night at Siegfried and Roy's house. So it can be pretty dangerous! I'm surprised your folks let you walk around with something like that.

why why why? WHY do dogs do that?

I have NO undies anymore.

Yes...I guess that makes me pantieless.

Katie - Ya gotta watch those lesbo dogs. Even they have a Gay Agenda (see Dazed's comment in the last post for a great link).

Dazed - I keep the banjo locked up inside a locked box inside a locked safe in the basement, under a blanket. I don't ever want to be accused of being an irresponsible banjo owner.

Kristine - Isn't it the law that one must blog while pantieless? Or have I been led astray?

I have always loved this picture. You did way more with costumes that any of us ever did.

You see why I need Opera gal to make me costumes?

Check out Dooce's site. She mentioned that she will miss your assless chap stories, BFE. Let's hope that someday we will be able to hear tales of your assless chaps once again on

Katie, my assless chaps will miss being discussed at Dooce's place. However, they will not be kept silent. I shall instead allow them to express themselves here for now.

Oh, and I think the lesbo dogs are already united. But much easier to separate than a male and a female, I think...

When I was a kid, I saw a boy dog and a girl dog stuck together in mid-copulation. I guess he got all swollen and wouldn't come out. It was quite distressing for a little kid to see.

What kind of assless chaps are you sporting today? I like your diamond studded assless chaps, offset by your flashing butt plug, personally.

I love your shiny bangs and cape.

And I had this dog Sandy who used to chew on the crotches of our underwear like they were made of meat. Weird.

re: dooce. do i detect mrs. hamilton passing the buck to the buckster, as it were? You may become the new comment queen, and if cape will read "Comment Queen" on the back, plus any other subtitle listers can come up with. ;)

I think Bucky would be the perfect Comment Queen. And she won't mind if we talk about tits and ass and huge bottles of A1.

Or POOP!!!

Hey Bucky, I've been listening to a lot of banjo music lately. Iron & Wine is laced with the most beautiful banjo... an unusual use of it too.

The Cold Mountain soundtrack also has some great historic (historic sounding anyway) folk tracks with some gorgeous-ass-less-chap banjos on it too.

Cool that Dooce mentioned your ass-less chaps. I think I'm actually glad that the comments are gone. I noticed that they've all been deleted, all the way back to the beginning in September. I don't think they've ever done that before, gone all the way back and deleted them.

I think as a website, Dooce is better without the comments. The last few months have been too much like an IM logfile. The contents of which are not really the same caliber as the rest of the site.

Take your comments, for example, they are a great companion to the posts and a tribute to your writing and your style.

I almost think when you get that famous, such an equilibrium goes to shite.

So, long live BuckyFourEyes and her scintillating and pithy comments section, of which this is not one.

(meaning my comment was not scintillating nor pithy)

I'm was in a rotten, pithy kinda mood today myself but Bucky's pic makes me perk up a bit. Have a nice weekend y'all.

For your information, Spoonie, I do not have a cape fetish. I do have a banjo fetish, though.

I don't know if I wanna be Queen of anything, 'cause I'm pretty sure they make queens wear dresses, big, poufy dresses which I would rather die of fleabites than wear.

And, considering how much I haunted/abused the Dooce comment section while it was there, people gave me surprisingly little shit, and for that, and for the cameraderie I found there, I thank you all. Could that sentence be a little longer and a bit more convoluted?

And La Pix, you're always scintillating and pithy. Ya just can't help yourself.

So, if you can stand blogger comments, come scream here if you want. All topics welcome, except for Beanie Babies. I have to draw the line somewhere.

Oh, and the assless chaps of the day are plum-colored gauze with argyle socks. The flashing butt plug is in the shop.

ok, Blogger sucks.
BFE - o ye of little faith - "Queen costume" does not always mean Gilda the good with, y'know.

i agree with the "surprisingly little shit" comment. at first people gave me a hard time, and then I figured out the dynamic and just didn't go down "provocation road". luckily you let everyone do that here - I am much more open here than elsewhere.

Squirl - this has more to do with an email you sent me, but I wish you lived here, you and your hubby could have had free tickets to the Symphony. For 4 days, I coudn't get anyone to take them.:( goofballs.

Thanks, Opera, I do love the symphony. We live right downtown so all the venues are pretty close. I just never want to spend the money or time seeing the people who come to the VanAndel which is only a couple of blocks away. You'd think someone my age would love to see Cher or Phil Collins. But Ichabod and I will walk five times as far to go to the DeVos Hall where they do symphonies and operas. There's nothing like being in the same room with that magnificent sound. Thanks

Susie, you had Ichabod and me doing dueling whistles this morning. Of course, I had to quit when it got to the fast part. :-)
