blogistan yearbook.jpg

Ah, memory lane.....nothing quite like dusting off the old high school yearbook to remember the days of yore! And what wacky times we had at old Blogistan High, rooting the "Mighty Anklebiters" to victory over the tofu eating hosebags at Moonbat Central. But I digress.

I've got to go and take the 8 year old to swim team, so I've got to run, but Robbo and I will be strolling down memory lane digging through the yearbook and adding more of our favorites. If you've got one, or something we missed, leave a link and we'll add it to the post.

Yes, all honor and glory goes to the Commissar for inventing this brand of link-whoring schtick. Long live the Vanguard of the Proletariat!

Don't make me publish your yearbook picture... I'm not bluffing.

Posted by: Gordon at June 8, 2005 03:43 PM

That's darn near funnier than the law allows. You'll be publishing in serial form soon on the Llamabutchers Premium Access site, only $19.95 per month for Premium Access membership!

PS Can we expect to see a frosh/soph post soon? Perhaps a more recent edition? I'm pretty sure Bill went to BH back in the day, more like 1997, and isn't Dr. Rusty a prof emeritus there?

To quote George Harrison on the Simpsons, "It's been done."

But even so, WHERE AM I?????

Posted by: Rusty Shackleford at June 8, 2005 04:15 PM

Thanks for the kind mention. My efforts were wholly preliminary and crude. I am a mere Anakin Skywalker to your Darth Vader.

Posted by: The Commissar at June 8, 2005 10:15 PM

OH lawd. I do believe I've been insulted....'don't stand so close to me'...

Ahem. I will have my revenge.

Yeah, I was just hurt that I didn't get an entry.

*** sniffle ***

Would that be cute n' fuzzy n' can't act Moppet Anakin, or pouty n' pert n' can't act brooding Anakin?

Thank you for the greatest compliment of all time. I'm going to go and crush Ardolino's windpipe with my mind to celebrate....

That was a hallucination?

Posted by: John from WuzzaDem at June 9, 2005 12:43 PM

Aye...seems the stereotypes I mentioned in reponse really ARE true....look who hasn't shown up.


Posted by: sadie at June 9, 2005 01:28 PM

You guys are a riot!

Let's just say I taught Matthew McConaughey to play the bongos...

Actually, I was class of '83, so I had the pleasure of voting for RR, absentee, in college in 1984. I was never a liberal, even in my youth.

Reagan carried Massachusetts that year. Last Republican to do so.

I would have TOTALLY sat with you geeks for lunch. I have *always* been appreciative of men who could make milk spurt from my nose.


Maybe I'll send you a picture you can 'shop half-to-death.
