A well-honeyed hum

Doug:
Hey, Arturo, I just invented a new seasonal special for ya...

 

Doug:
It's called the "Playing Out the String" – an all beef dog topped with sauerkraut and beets.

 

Doug:
Get it, Arturo, "sour" and "beat"?

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Ah, yeah, very clevah, Mr. Roy, I'm sure I'll get right on that.

 

Doug:
Sigh.

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Oh, quit with the glum front already, will ya?

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Look around. The Red Sox may be out of it but the Boston girls are still pretty and the autumn air tastes of apple peel and ferris wheels.

 

Doug:
!

 

Doug:
You're a real optimist aren't you, Arty?

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Of course, I'm Portugese. We are an optimistic people.

 

Doug:
Still waiting for King Sebastian to return, eh?

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
On a foggy morning, kid, on a foggy morning.

I'm still full from Sunday's tailgate, but that that dog sounds delicious. The sauerkraut could be made from pickled beets. They could serve them at Fenway and call 'em "Fenway Let's Be Frank: This Season's Over."

Bob,

That is fantastic! That's why you're a real ad man.

Meanwhile wanted to mention that the "AIR TASTES OF APPLE PEEL" line is from Updike, (poem "September") but the "and ferris wheels" is my own addition. (I'm allowed to do that because I hold a poetic license in the State of Massachusetts.)

awesome, h.b. Them Portugese sure know how to "wait until next year"

I got your fado right here.

eternamente seu, agora e sempre, que o menino Jesus e que skank da rede espanhola estar com o seu eo seu no firmamento santo,

Glad you mentioned girls, h.b. Always a good thing. By the way, as an out-of-towner, I have noticed during my trips into Beantown a proclivity for the female of the species to carry a...how do we say...finely packed trunk. Must be something in the water...or the hot dogs.

Wait...King Sebastian is the Great Pumpkin?


Now I'm confused.

Seems to be a great division race going on in the AL East. Too bad we are not a part of it. Sox v. Sox next week in Chicago. Waiting for tickets prices to bottom out at StubHub.

Our postseason chances just went up 150% overnight.


From 2% to 3%...

Not to quibble, Kaz, but they went up 50%


Is that the same math you used to prove cold fusion works? :-D

Salty yum and honeyed hum.


What the hell is going on around here?

so, h.b., I notice that ever since that period some time back when you were dealing with bullshit legalillegalliability issues relative to this site, that you apparently are required to explain the joke now, or at least provide reference and homage to certain material to appease someone out there. Those smart enough to know that some of the material you reference is OBVIOUSLY someone else's work put into a new context must not be part of that group you must appease? Was it to do with it being written material? internet based? redsox based? I have not seen comedians on stage required to do what it seems you have been required to do. Not a detriment to the site since you handle it in comments, but seems a little silly. Maybe you need to apply for the Unlimited licesne.

Just curious. Unless of course telling me would require you to kill me. In that case, I don't really give a shit.

Jeff,


No, that's not the case. I've actually always give credit where credit is due, but before the redesign I had a separate "author's notes" link that you prob never noticed. But I screwed that up somehow and it stopped working. I figured out how to fix it but by then I felt it was better to just put the footnotes/citations in a comment.


As for the powers that be that still, as far as I know, want to shut the site down, they are a Boston-based conglomerate and their name rhymes with "Dead Fox."

l.c. WTF
Google translates you post as:
"forever yours, now and forever, the boy Jesus and that skank Spanish system be with her and her saint in heaven"

Is that what you meant?

and h.b. why does that Boston based conglomerate want to shut you down? Are you siphoning off billions in ad revenue?

Boston-based conglomerate worries that people may be confused and think that this creepy website may be a part of or otherwise officially sanctioned by said conglomerate.


But owner of creepy website has a fall back plan, unlike, say, GM of conglomerate with respect to shortstops.

And that last comment there h.b., is why this site is so good. And possibly why said conglomerate takes issue. Lol.

That Boston-based conglomerate would be pissed if you siphoned off $5 in ad revenues, never mind billions.

@va. precisely
@hb. 'doh
@YB two sunbdays ago bought tickets from stubhub at 9:30 am (instant delivery) and found myself five rows away from the superannuated batboy on the RS side of the field at fenway. Tickets were 40% below face value. best seats evah. now's the time, kids.

apostolically,

lc

Hoping the Twinkies sweep the Sox in this series so tickets prices really tank.

Speaking of below face value:


The Broncos get Maroney and the Pat's 2011 6th round pick; the Pats get the Broncos 4th round pick.

Wait "Boston-Based Conglomerate"? B...B...C...


Fuck the British media. Bunch of wankers. Fuck them for wanting to take you down.

BBC? Thougt you were going somewhere else with that one.
