Suitably attired. I had to clean up a Brannigan in my back yard this morning, though. Seems my sweet, lovable Labs cornered a bunny who happened into the yard. Bunny parts strewn everywhere and the chocolate had blood all over his muzzle.

After the vicious brannigan(1) in the office yesterday I think everyone will probably be out having a brannigan(2) tonight.

Obama, playing golf, starts a Brannigan
As he asks, once again, for a Mulligan
Too bad that it’s not our fate
To go back to oh-eight
And elect someone else, and just begin again

From the BBC:

Members of the Ubama Administration reportedly disagree about religion. Although the President’s stated policy is to exploit all religion for cheap votes, members of his staff have gone into a full-on Brannigan over which church to exploit.

Some members favor the Church of Saint Pancake, dedicated to the memory of Ms. Rachel Corrie. Supporters argue that the church has worldwide appeal, particularly among violent, Islamic extremists aged 25 - 39. This is the administration’s favored demographic.

A new group supports the Church of Saint Bigot. It was formed for Shirley Sherrod, whose career was martyred when she made the now famous “Cracker Speech.” Adherents argue that racists are more important to the administration’s policies and that St. Bigot is a local.

Protesters carrying signs in marches through the Eisenhower Office Building are common sights these days. Strife between the two factions has caused members to threaten each other with IRS audits and class action lawsuits. A brief shoving match arose when the sides argued over whom would Bill and Bernardine Ayers support. A federal mediator determined that each side can have one Ayers.

President Ubama said he really doesn’t care which side anyone supports because he doesn’t believe in religion and only uses it to get public sympathy.

End BBC parody.

As the man sat down at his usual booth for breakfast, the waitress approached him and inquired, “Sir, would you like bacon and eggs this morning?”

He sighed and answered, “No, I’m on a diet; I’ll just have the Brannigan.”

I did like a number of Laura's songs from the 80's -- then again, it was the 80's and I was known to go on a brannigan or two...

admittedly satire, but very funny stuff indeed:
    Ex Vice President, Al Gore has been living a secret life as a heavy metal fanatic who allegedly performs gory sacrificial rituals in a secret room in the family mansion.

At least he's somewhat entertaining.

It is raining lightly on and off here, too-

Charlie has been tattled on
And according to the facts
He’s guilty of hiding income
From rentals to income tax

From a Carribean luxury villa
To apartments in New York’s Queens
He’s been wheeling and dealing
To live well beyond his means

I hope that sleazy, crooked Charlie
Can’t bribe away this tangle-
And the hearing becomes a brannigan
Instead of just a minor “wrangle”

The little sprinkles are keeping the temperature below 90 and the breeze blowing-I won’t complain.

Time to go light the grill and steam some cauliflower-I’ve got a little ribeye steak in the freezer I’m going to grill. I had planned to thaw and grill some sand trout that my neighbor’s husband caught (in the still clean bay off Corpus Christi) and she gave me, but I’ve eaten a lot of fish and chicken lately and I’m jonesin for beef-back later...

WFTD kudos to Charlie Rangel, Timmy Geithner, Tom Daschole, and now -- John F'n Kerry for reminding us all of that one eternal truth about liberals:

Democrats love to levy taxes, but they just don't like payin 'em.

So, someone called Glenn Beck's red phone and I have to hear about it on the streets?

Also, look what's living under my kitchen table:

Photobucket

The guinea pigs had an interesting reaction to this new creature:

The cats? They are in their safe place upstairs waiting this new, revolting development out.
