Hey DUmmies! If you want the honor of having your thread DUFUed, then be really creative in your titles. The main reason why this THREAD was DUFUed was its title, ""Mr President, do know how many people lived on ramen noodles to get you elected?" No matter how many times I read it, I never fail to chuckle. In fact, the rest of the thread is pretty much anticlimactic although the personal woes posted by the author, DUmmie thunder rising, is also quite FUnnie. This thread has even inspired a new DUmmie description on my part: Ramen Noodle DUmmies. Ramen Noodle DUmmies are DUmmies who placed complete faith in their savior, Barack Obama, yet despite great personal sacrifice now have NOTHING to show for it. So let us now watch the Ramen Noodle DUmmies recount their disappointment in The One in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who just checked in the back of a kitchen cabinet and found Lime Shrimp Ramen Noodles, is in the [barackets]:
Mr President, do know how many people lived on ramen noodles to get you elected?
[LOL! One of the FUnnies DUmmie thread titles ever!]
How many gave up savings? How many people gave up entertainment? How many people sensing the collapse of our financial system literally threw you forward like a Hail Mary pass in hopes that you would act in our best interest; you know, the *people* people of the United States?
[I gave up living on raw carrots to eat nothing but Ramen Noodles. Such was the sacrifice I made for our Beloved Barack.]
I'm now unemployed, uninsured, and foreclosed. All of these issues were addressed in your campaign promises. Do you think we as a group of evermore impoverished plain Americans we can preserver as long as the Democratic Asshole Senators can delay? The proof is in: 122 less voters will be available by tomorrow; 4K by the next election.
[Maybe you should have been one of those who lined up in Detroit to get yourself a share of Obama's stash.]
And I know that in the Democratic political strategist minds they are thinking; you're broke, so you really don't count anymore.
[Would it make you feel better to cry into my bowl of Lime Shrimp Ramen Noodles?]
My employment prospects were sent to India and/or simply filled on site with an H1-B. Do you think we could get some relief on that. At least let us know that you're interested in the plight of the plain everyday Americans that sent those small donations?
[Good news! Ramen Noodles are widely available in India as long as they aren't beef flavored.]
Do you think the younger voters that were *so* hyped up about your election are still excited? I was once 18-25 yrs old and I can tell you they are seeing the same old politics of getting served scraps justified with more intellectual arguments. Yes, the crowds love to cheer you--you being a charismatic speaker can work a crowd. However, that glow isn't lasting nearly as long as it used to. There is no "force multiplier". Nobody is going out registering voters or calling their friends. The party is in fact in decline and it's your watch.
[Obama's Ramen Noodle has gone limp.]
The time is at hand ... we need you to work for us now.
[Obama will work to make sure your Ramen Noodles don't have too much MSG.]
(Sry folks, I love that President, but I'm getting frustrated)
[Thus concludes the Ramen Noodle soliloquy. And now on to the rest of the DUmmies...]
he's a millionaire, YOU are not. His friends are from Goldman Sachs. Yours? He has accomplished some good things in his term. But now that he is an insider and no longer a challenger...well things change don't they?
[The big change is that Obama gets arugula as a side with his Ramen Noodles. ]
Can I get in here and take my crap on him, too?
[Did you eat too many Ramen Noodles?]
Since 11/25/08, when I first voiced my "concerns" about the Geithner appointment and got flamed for it here on DU, I have said that we the people were being ignored, and they the bankers were getting all the attention.
[Geithner. The only Episcopalian born in Brooklyn in over 70 years. Hmmmm?]
The U.S. has ONE president.
On a positive note, in New Orleans he said he's just getting started. Keep hope alive!
[Keep Ramen Noodles warmed up!]
I am beginning to think that for the next four years all they are doing is shilling for votes. and going to the wrong side looking for them. the DC beltway crowd is out of touch.
[Do they serve Ramen Noodles inside the Beltway?]
The problem is that he did not recruit us. A nation of followers lost their leader the day after the election.
[ACORN will trade a bowl of Ramen Noodles for your vote.]
I know MY life went flaming into the crapper right after McCain lost.
[And how many Ramen Noodles flew into that crapper?]
Millions are frustrated. You are not alone and the question remains, "WHERE ARE THE JOBS GOING TO COME FROM??"
[A more important question remains, "WHERE ARE THE RAMEN NOODLES GOING TO COME FROM??"]
Top ten, and HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
If the thread poster was foreclosed, how is he posting on the Internet?
I never thought I’d ever say this, but I’d rather hire an H1-B with a work ethic than a spoiled RAT who wants everything given to him.
Big deal. I was 18-25 continuously for seven years.
I will be handling the Pitt nuptials DUFU tomorrow, so y'all save your comments for then.
I also know something about Ramen noodles, having subsisting on them in Korea for some months. More on tha later. . . .
Since the Admarxistration despises capitalism, no doubt they'll be ordained by the government. After all, that worked out wonderfully in all those other totalitarian countries...
Got you beat. I was 18-25 for nine consecutive years. I failed 23 and had to retake it twice.
I'll wager many more live on them now whether they supported his sorry marxist ass or not.
Subramanian Brahmin's wave function is highly delocalized; he spends half his time at a call-center in Mumbai, and half in a cubicle at Initech.
Oh yeah, he has your stapler, too.
...and Ramen noodles suck.
Ancient Aztec sacrifice? The Azteks used to have unwashed gay shamans who would cut the heart out of a living man and hold it high [in hand] for all to see including the victim before consigning it to the flames. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) Later on the shamans skin the victim and they make a new dangly-handed jumpsuit out of his hide for one to wear to the next ritual. Fresh hides cut the smell...
Or, it could be the logo of the Tibetan chapter of NAMBLA . ;-)
I can beat that.
The guy who bought beer for us in high school was 21 from 1972 until 1977.
oatmeal and beans are cheap too
I was that guy and I would’nt ask for a dime back. It was worth it all.
122-proof booze will keep you well-preserved, ramen noodles notwithstanding...
I go to our local Special Collections Library at least once a week working on our family tree (genealogy). The library has about eight computer monitors sitting on desks. Everytime I go there at least six of them are being used by individuals who appear to be either homeless or living on the edge. Shoddy clothes, scruffy, etc. I have no idea what their status is but it does seem a bit odd to see over half of these computers being used to play Solitaire or on-line games. And it does not cost anything to use them, only a sign on procedure with the Library System, tantamount to a library card.

Hmm... 18-25 actually covers 8 years. Probably best to point that out before somebody else beats us over the head with it.
Obama’a Ramen Noodle went limp....
Thanks for that. I go over there to see what the other side is up to and can only take it for so long between laughing at the stupidy and lamenting for the future.
I do enjoy your funnies.
Black cherry here. The best drink on the planet IMO.
No. No. No. No. No.
Just because this is a DUFU thread doesn't mean it's OK to spill all those unaskable untellable secrets. The sixteen year-old with the five o'clock shadow bought the beer. He did not pay for the beer. Come to think of it, he never paid for the beer.
I used to be a library computer user. Of course we only had four and nobody really knew they were there.
I am glad all the stupid are unemployed. I tell business owners to fire the obaminists first.
Ah, those were the good old days, Everclear in Mogan David. Anywhere from 100 proof (one to one) to 150 proof (3 to 1). We did not need ramen noodles.
Now it is "Very Strong Rum" manufactured in St. Vincent. 170 proof and very, very good tasting.
I didn’t pay for whaaa? I just carried it. Shopping carts were scarce during the “malaise” years of modern government.
It's like what they say about the Seventies: if you remember what happened you weren't really there.
drink it with ramen noodles and a balogna sandwich
If Obunghole is successful implementing his agenda we’ll all be living on Ramen.
My Lime Shrimp Ramen Noodles have been sitting in my kitchen cabinet for over a year. I bought them at like 10 for a buck. I tried a couple. A little on the acidic side but passable in case of an emergency.
Up until a few years ago you could still get a fried bologna sandwich here at the local grocer. I might bring that back.
For me, Ramen Noodles are like hurricane emergency food. Fortunately, I did not have to eat them during our last hurricane here-—Wilma in 2005. The first evening, I got HOT PIZZA from a local Italian restaurant. I went there to buy food but the guy was great and was giving it out. The next day, I found a nearby Chinese restaurant that had gas stoves and served up hot food. Also found a bar where they served barbeque food. Then the nearby Denny’s opened up for business and I didn’t have to eat those Ramen Noodles. The only ones I tried were the Lime Shrimp Ramen Noodles that I still have and I only ate a couple of those out of curiosity. I mean do you even know what Lime Shrimp Ramen Noodles even taste like?
That’s a classic just for the title. I haven’t even looked at the thread yet.
They get hired where I am.
“I lived on Ramen Noodles for a year and all I got was this lousy Obama T-shirt.”
We were at my wife’s alma mater today for reunion and other stuff. One building we went to on campus was the very nice libary. On the way out I noticed this one fellow with a laptop with stickers. One said “be a smartass, vote democrat”. I wonder how much his folks fork out for him to go to this rather pricey private college? How long will he be living in their basement when he wraps it up there?
They must be really bummed out. Their usual profanity is very subdued.
Either that or they can’t afford enough booze to fuel their usual rummy, bleary eyed, incoherent postings.
No matter. It’s still funny.
Almost too funny!!!
