Re: “Punch Drunk

Adam, I'm guessing you're not a huge fan of beer? I am a beer snob and I associate with other fellow beer snobs. It's generally not used in a sense of "bashing" anyone... it's actually a very common phrase used to describe people who are craft/micro/import beer enthusiasts, meaning that one turns up one's nose at mass produced pee water.

Re: “Henrico Approves Controversial Mosque

Careful there, CT. You're letting your true colors show. In any event, I don't guess we'll be catching your Ivory Ass down here in the "rough part of town", so enjoy your time in Smallville knowing that we down here in the gutters have the fortitude to absorb some color in the neighborhood.

God forbid you every visited an ACTUAL rough neighborhood in Richmond. Your delicate sensibilities might not be able to handle the likes of Whitcomb or Mosby Courts. Somebody might smack the monocle out your eye and steal your watch fob! Good heavens!

Re: “Henrico Approves Controversial Mosque

"City Taxpayer",

Man, it must be nice up there on that ivory hill.

Lakeside is not some kind of dump. No, the people of my neighborhood generally didn't pay $500,000 for an oversized cookie cutter home that would now be underwater, but the "questionable" properties are few and far between. For my street, every house is well-maintained and we all live pretty quietly. There might be a game of football or wiffle ball in the grassy circle, but no "thugs" to speak of down this way. These are middle class people who generally choose to live within their means. Not everybody feels they need 3,000 square feet to fill up with crap.

We don't have neighborhood covenants, so nobody's going to get a notice on their door for not consulting the counsel about the color they painted their shutters and there are a few, shall I say "classic", cars in the occasional driveway. That's the price one pays for freedom, I guess. I'm betting the guy down the way with the Volkswagen frankenstein trike who flies full sized US and POW/MIA flags agrees with me.

But to think we don't have the wherewithal to muster up some opposition to something we object to is out of line. We're not tabacky chewin rednecks sittin out on the porch with our firearms or indigent welfare bitches waitin round fer the 1st of the month. Heck, I, my wife, and both our neighbors have Master's degrees. This neighborhood is occupied by teachers, policemen, nurses, contractors, and people of other respectable professions.

If we were pissed about something being built in our neighborhood, we'd raise hell, but honestly... most of us don't care.

Re: “Punch Drunk

Once, I teamed up alongside a toothless homeless man with whom I shared a pint of Southern Comfort down by the riverside. We then proceeded through the French Market eating samples of pickled/fried god-knows-what, polished off by us talking a very friendly sorority girl from Arkansas into giving toothless homeless guy a lap dance on a bench adjacent to Lafayette Square.

Then, I wandered off in the wrong direction on my own in search of an obscure sushi joint and ended up stumbling around the 9th ward. I was busy admiring the victorian style wrought iron bars on all the windows and doors when a kindly gentleman told me that a pretty white boy like myself might do well to turn around and head in the opposite direction.

Later, I found amusement by making trash angels in the street debris.

/cool story, bro

Re: “Posh Pool’s Poo Blues

I don't trust anyone who is too highbrow for a little poop humor. I guess you all never saw Caddyshack? That in and of itself is a sign of being essentially humorless.

The potential headline jokes are just too numerous:

"West End yuppies put the 'poo' in pool"

"Westwood seeks to put brown trout on the endangered species list"

"After some consideration, pool manager decides to remove Baby Ruths from the vending machine"...

Re: “Short Order

I guess now that school's out, we can expect more anonymous dickheads and tough guys in the analogues of the internet. "Hurrrr! I can do it to your're face, HURRRR!" Yeh, you sure showed 'em, you bunch of badasses.

Re: “Short Order

Say what you will, but I'd buy a burger from a fat man over a man with a gym body any day.
