Cheapskate....If Theresa was my wife..I would have a much bigger one...boat, hat is....Jake
"Maybe Kerry will let Teddy drive it someday. We can hope."
Not if he brings someone else on board before casting off. Unless of course, he solos with Blood and Guts JF Kerry himself.
A gas hog
Something else that might confound his political image is the Scaramouches fuel efficiency. Speedboats are gas hogs. The Fidelity got 2 mpg and the Scaramouche probably gets less than one (The Scaramouche, according to the Boston Herald, is a Hinckley powerboat. A 44-foot version, according to boats.com, has a fuel capacity of 500 gallons, and a range of 340 nautical miles, or .68 MPG. Hinckley no longer makes the 42-foot boat.)
I must be missing something. It looks to me like a Type 4 Horseshoe PFD. Granted why anyone would use this on a Power Boat is not clear. Since they are used principallly by Rag Boaters.
Wasn't Scaramouche an evil dude in one of the James Bond flicks? I suppose that would be a role model for kerry.
I see energy saving and gas prices don't concern John Kerry at all.
Can I add that to my wedding registry?
FYI: All boats of that size or larger, measure their fuel economy in GPM not MPG.
No, that's only for scrapes...and if it's in Cambodia...at Christmas...after he's shot someone in the back.
I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche,scaramouche will you do the fandango-
Thunderbolt and lightning-very very frightening me-
But Im just a poor boy and nobody loves me-
Hes just a poor boy from a poor family-
Spare him his life from this monstrosity-
Easy come easy go-,will you let me go-
Bismillah! no-,we will not let you go-let him go-
Bismillah! we will not let you go-let him go
Bismillah! we will not let you go-let me go
Will not let you go-let me go
Will not let you go let me go
Mama mia,mama mia,mama mia let me go-
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me,for me,for me-
Cause he's to stupid to put it over his head? Just a guess.
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, can ya do the fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightening, very very frightening me!
Was Freddy Mercury John Kerry's favorite singer?
Gift from Teddy I guess...never used...for saving a life that is.
looks like a really swift boat.
"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale..."
Nice little boat...
The POWERBOAT SCARAMOUCHE isn't MOUCHE to talk about.
Does one have to jump in the water to get on that little thing?
Yup! John dares Ted to shoot the Chippaquidick bridge supports at Martha's Vineyard.
The scow looks like a half-million dollar "cottage" in southern California....square footage, for the bucks, is roughly the same.
The correct nautical term is "head". In french chitte hèide.
Wouldn't it have to be square to fit over his head anyway...just asking.
And does it have those cool foot paddles?
Now that's a dumb question.
It's *not* a "Life Preserver".
...it's his crown.
It looks like the type of thing a Kennedy camp bimbo might fall for.
Does it have a jacuzzi? How many life preservers?
Or better yet gph
What? *hit Hide? Makes sense. Also a slogan for the French period.
That was Scaramonga in Man with the Golden Gun.
Looks like the Radar Ant. Blocks his Forward Masthead light.
Thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening.
It symbolized the rescue of his campaign.
Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
A little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows,
doesn't really matter to me, to me
Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters
Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody - I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooo - (anyway the wind blows)
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all
I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango
Thunderbolt and lightning - very very frightening me
Gallileo Figaro - magnifico
But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go - will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let me go
Will not let you go - let me go (never)
Never let you go - let me go
Never let me go - ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby - can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters - nothing really matters to me
Anyway the wind blows...
That's some type of liberal joke. Liberals are into adolescent bathroom humor.Since the days of JFK, those liberal boating parties can...uh...get a little wild. No doubt he has a humidor on board for Clinton. And scuba gear for Ted Kennedy.
There you are. That way he'll get better that .68 mpg or gpm, whatever it is. Maybe the gin-raisin eater can peddle while the captain is water skiing. It would be a nice photo op.
Yes! But can he do the Fandango?
The teak needs some work.
Well, Kerry can do it, but Algore invented it.
Are you referring to the boat?
What else could I be referring to? I'm not Theresa.
You would have expected one of those Jacques Cousteau type yellow submarines with lots of gizmos, gadgets, and cameras...
Much nicer boats on Lake Michigan.
Wasn't the original Scaramouche a nobleman's bastard?
LOL! I looked it up, too, with this variation:
A stock character in commedia dell'arte and pantomime, depicted as a boastful coward or buffoon.
LOL. It really suits him! A cowardly, boastful buffoon!
Maybe Kerry will let Teddy drive it someday. We can hope.
Maybe Teddy will get drunk and wreck the boat on a sand bar, killing his mermaid "companion."
Maybe that's what she calls him in private, like a pet name!
