I Got My Lizard Tongue Update

And just when I thought there wasn't going to be a tongue image from last night.

I'm sorry to do this to you. But I can't have people just send me these things willy-nilly and then keep them from you. And I have got to start wearing waterproof mascara.


Yes, I am totally juvenile.
But this is what I have been reduced to. Plus, it's still McLovin Day.

Oh my God, I just spat up a Lornadoon. Is that thing real??

I am so sick of McCain’s juvenile eye rolls and smirks. SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LISTEN POLITELY, BITCH! (Sorry, Tourettic outburst.) And is anyone else really pissed off at McCain for totally dismissing a woman’s health as a valid reason to have a late-term abortion? Whatever you feel about abortion, if a woman’s life is gravely endangered by a pregnancy, shouldn’t she have the right to an abortion? It was deeply distressing to hear him repeat the words “a woman’s health” as though he was spitting out something disgusting.

Is that real?? WTF is going on there?

Sweet Repose October 16, 2008 at 1:11 PM  

Now listen my 'friend'...I just popped over from Willow, because this picture sucked me in...GROSS...even without the tongue!!! I was so curious...you made me look...now I have a headache...must be a woman's health problem!

Cool blog.

I'm sorry, you guys are killin' me. I am postponing my lunch just to write back to you. That shows how much I like you.

Hi p,

I think that was a terrible waste of a cookie. And now here you go talking about real issues when I was going for the low blow.

I was still going nuts about how he talked about how Roe v. Wade wasn't a litmus test and then proceeded to completely make it into a litmus test in his badly garbled explanation. Poor Cindy. No wonder she got addicted to painkillers. She's got to sleep next to that frog.

ps. I know a guy who has Tourette's and he acts much nicer than you-know-who.

Hi ms. hedgehog,

I really don't know how to stop being embarrassed on behalf of all Americans to the rest of the world.

Just tell me you're laughing over there, and that you have some sympathy for us.

And yes, it's real. Someone saw it on Reuters and sent it to me. But it has been proven that he's also appealing to the swing lizard vote in this country: http://tangobaby2.blogspot.com/2008/10/my-friends-no-im-not-live-blogging-my.html

Hi sweet repose,

I'm sorry I sucked you in from willow's lovely autumnal images and music and culture and history. That must have been quite a rude shock to your delicate woman's health.

But I can relate. Why should our health matter? On second thought, we should just repeal the 19th Ammendment too.

Thanks for visiting. I'll try to be better behaved next time.

It's real! This just made my day! I have just been looking at pictures of Hiroshima, so I totes needed this.

He was acting like such an asshole last night. I was willing to think he was a decent guy until this last debate. Now I think he's a total douchebag with a cherry on top.

tangobaby October 16, 2008 at 1:47 PM  

Hi p,

Yeah, it's real. (Ms. Hedgehog, in my tizzy, I forgot to explain that at the end of the debate, McCain was a little discombobulated and didn't know which way to walk off the stage to shake hands with the moderator, and he made this weird little dance, and apparently, disgusting lizard face.)

Oh, and p, I really like how even your dissing of him involves women's lady parts. Douchebag indeed! He's a Massengill Special.

willow October 16, 2008 at 2:54 PM  

OMG! I saw him do that last night and wondered if any still photos would be circulating today. Yep. And it sure does look UG-leee!

paris parfait October 16, 2008 at 3:21 PM  

Ha ha! Serves him right, after all that eye-rolling, grimacing, blinking and snorting during the debate. xoxox

tangobaby October 16, 2008 at 3:24 PM  

Hi willow,

Yeah, it didn't look that bad when he was in motion. He just looked like a lost dork.

Freeze frame is bad news.

Hi tara,

Well, when you put it that way--payback's a bitch, ain't it!



kris October 16, 2008 at 5:29 PM  

that was my biggest laugh for today!! Thank you!
I have to ask, on my first visit, with your tag and title photo are you familiar with Kirsty MacColl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjvaqVAFuLI

Christina October 16, 2008 at 7:00 PM  

Dying over here! Just dying from laughter! I can't even type!

P called home boy a biyach!!!

OMG! I love this fricken blog!!

Elizabeth October 16, 2008 at 10:20 PM  

You Guys, This whole thing is just so unfair to lizards.

tangobaby October 16, 2008 at 10:50 PM  

Hi kris,

Welcome and thanks for the visit and the comment. I'm glad I could make you laugh your head off too.

I had not heard of the song or Kirsty MacColl but that song is really a hoot and I enjoyed it a lot. And just for the record, I want you to know that I can do LOTS of things in those heels. Those are my favorite Stuart Weitzmans and they're almost as comfy as a pair of bunny slippers. Really.

Hi christina,

If you are not reading p's blog regularly, then you are missing some prime ways to laugh yourself silly during the day.

I don't know what I'd do without her sometimes.

Hi elizabeth,

I had not looked at this from the perspective of the lizards, but now I think you are right. Someone should write to The Colbert Report.

Or hopefully in 19 days it won't be an issue anymore!

A Cuban In London October 17, 2008 at 2:15 AM  

Oh, dear! Luckily I'd just had my breakfast.

Greetings from London.

Vanessa October 17, 2008 at 5:14 AM  

I thought this was Photoshopped at first. Freeze frame gold.

tangobaby October 17, 2008 at 9:18 AM  

Hi a cuban from london,

If you lived here, you'd soon be able to tolerate anything and eat your breakfast regardless.

But I understand. The tongue is yucky.

Hi vanessa,

This one was, incredibly enough, NOT Photoshopped. Like when Newsweek didn't Photoshop out Sarah Palin's moustache on that extreme closeup.

And the photo I just posted is very very authentic, too.


julochka October 19, 2008 at 12:51 PM  

i saw that in the newspaper and thought it was photoshopped, but no, it wasn't! i am so glad i was off the grid for a few days, i gotta tell you, this and the real sarah palin on SNL have me wanting to go back off the grid 'til after the election...

tangobaby October 19, 2008 at 8:40 PM  

Hi julochka,

Nope, for once the media didn't distort anyone's image! (So of course it's hard to accept that.)

And about Palin on SNL, well, I hope they're happy. I wrote them a letter and said I would never watch their show again if they put her on. And now they'll be sorry. I didn't tell them I don't have a tv, though.

Does that mean she's doing the two-fer? SNL and then Meet the Press?
