Well that’s it. The student has become the master. Becca’s gif is way better than mine today. Still, I am here to lay that source info down: https://open.substack.com/pub/martiniambassador/p/wakey-wakey-wag-your-tail-y

Awww I don't know that Rebecca's is better - they are such different FLAVORS! We need them both!

Of course, I suppose there could be a GIF-ception where somehow pizza could be exploding out of something in the background of the puppy wakeup scene.

A very gracious comment, but it could be that like when she purchased Wonkette, Becca has just gotten lucky.

Love 'em. I got a puppy. Getting to be a big puppy now. He is a very good doggo. Well, most of the time he is.

I was a bit worried, but no one would make a cute puppy video with a sick puppy (well, that kind of sick puppy) in it, right?

They're the one who scarfed down their food bowl and half of another before getting caught.

I love ‘em both! Yours did quiet the stress-hormone-parade that seems always to be marching through my body, so thank you. :)

Puppies. <sigh>

Now I can finish my coffee and go back to sleep having puppy dreams. :-)

I shouted at the screen.

"Wake up little one! Rise and shine sleepy head! C'mon lazybones! All that playing and pooping and peeing and getting fed don't get done by itself!"

Those precious puppies put a lump in my throat.

paul and I were offered a sweet little cocker spaniel pup and I desperately wanted to bring him home but we don't dare try it. Cat the Ripper would never tolerate the competition and it would get ugly.

No puppies here for a while.

We're on our fourth dog, the first three all lived to 15. After this one if we're still around we're only going to take in seniors.

Puppies are cute but they are so much trouble! Our last 2 dogs are 1-year old shelter dogs and that was perfect. One of them is 15 now...

Nothing better than Golden puppies, but I'm prejudiced - I have Golden granddogs.

No Scanners gif ever, please. It made me so ill the first time I saw I had to leave the theater. Pizza does not make it any less traumatic

I believe this is colloquially known as “Floridianizing” your bill, after the Florida legislature ignored that unpleasant “return voting rights to people with criminal records “ ballot initiative.

APB on Sean Williams from Johnson City TN. That story is gross. What an awful excuse for a human. Hope they find that monster quickly.

"Idaho was a standout in the new report. More than 12% of children entering kindergarten in that state had a vaccine exemption in 2022."

Yay...nice to be #1 at something besides potatoes....oh, wait..will this mean unnecessary child's mortality increase...? You bet your Bippy! Sad

In case you weren’t already tantalized by that description of Jingle Smells you should also know that it “features a special appearance by the Jay Sekulow Band and a special voice appearance by Gov. Mike Huckabee. “

Could be. But new generations are surprisingly good at finding out about great old stuff.

Moar puppies please

After reading the cast list for "Jingle Smells," I'm starting to worry that "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" might lose its place as Crappiest Christmas Movie of All Time! Maybe Rumble should offer a double feature with both of these nightmares.

(You really didn't know that John Schneider was a MAGAT till now?)

Expand full comment

I have no idea how good it is, but a new Christmas movie is coming out today. It's called "It's a Wonderful Knife".

I'm predicting that it is AWESOME.

'Tracy Chapman won a Country Music Award for “Fast Car.” It came out in 1988. That makes me so happy.'

Me too. That said, the more I hear the cover, the less I like it, and the more I appreciate the original version -- which I already loved.

Expand full comment

A musician named Ryan Montbleau does a great cover, you might enjoy it.

Thanks.

That was okay too. I guess -- despite having grown up in Texas (Houston) -- I've never really cared for the twangy guitar, or the over-emphasized twangy accent.

Losing Jezebel is awful. It was the only remnant of the old Gawker that I would read (excluding yr Wonkette). Jim Spanfeller will always be a herb.

Expand full comment

So many websites taken away without a trace; True Slant, The Awl, Gawker, Buzzfeed News, Vice (didn't really follow them, but miss them anyway), now Jezebel. There are probably others I am forgetting. It is fine. I will hang with Wonkette and the Guardian, the log off and do other things. Fuck you the rest of the internet.

Expand full comment

Pretty sure some kind of crossposting on Jezebel was how I found Wonkette in the first place. I only migrated over here when they decided women were really only mostly interested in posts about shopping and celebrity gossip. Sad thing is, it had looked like they were stepping their game back up lately.

If it makes ir any better, John Schneider and Tom Wopat recorded a version 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' that is...just...>chef kiss<

I love it ironically, I love it unironically, I even love that it's these two.

'I love to see you scurry...'!
