Look’s like Yogi and Boo Boo stole their pic-i-nic basket.

“Hillary, you’ve got to stop referring to me as “Sambo” at the State Department. I know it’s just a joke, but some people are taking it the wrong way.”

“What, you think I can’t chop this board in half with my hand? I could. I totally could. I just don’t feel like it, though.”

Colander April 29, 2009 at 3:56 am

He’s explaining that a Manwich is not a sexual position, and so he doesn’t owe her an apology for his joke, and she’s not buying it.

Thought Bubbles

Hillz: Is he masturbating with his right hand?

Hopey: Can she tell I’m masturbating with my right hand?

Hillz: Bill never masturbates in front of me.

Hopey: Soon as the photog is gone, I’m gonna rock out with my cock out!

More like, “Don’t let the squirrel steal your ACORNs!”

“I already told you Hillary, Michelle’s too busy to cut up apples for our playdate. Fine, we’ll meet at your house next time.”

“I’ll be needing some of that kool-aide brain serum for Ahmadinejad & Kim Jong-il. Yeah, 100% Approval rating from the sheeples, during the annihilation of all monies. If they only knew about the water supply!…Haaaaaaaaaaaaa!”

I wonder how long it will be before some genius at Free Republic photoshops fried chicken and watermelon into this picture…

No need to thank me! I consider my work a public service. But you’re welcome!

Hillz: A-4

Barry: You sunk my battleship!

That is one sturdy looking picnic table… must have been built when Rove was still at the White House.

freakishlystrong April 29, 2009 at 8:07 am

[re=302830]hobospacejunkie[/re]: Jesus, are you still drunk? Once again Wonkette has destroyed my libido….

Naked Bunny with a Whip April 29, 2009 at 8:09 am

Every object touched by Obama’s ass now gets a placard.

Monsieur Grumpe April 29, 2009 at 8:41 am

Picnic table provided by the WPA.

karen April 29, 2009 at 8:56 am

Jesus jumpin’ Christ. That picnic table is obviously designed to withstand a NOOQUELAR holocaust. It must be from IKEA.

“So we wipe out the population of Texas with the flu bug I released while I was in Mexico, then we repopulate the state with evicted California Democrats. That’s the plan. Keep it under your hat.”

[re=302854]archaeo-angel[/re]: Military specs on the pic-a-nic table. But please tell me they’re not at a rest stop on the Jersey Turnpike.

“Let’s pretend we’re having a conversation so Wonkette can have a new photo caption contest.”

“What’s this plaque say? ‘The Picnic Table of Rassilon’? What’s that mean?”

rocktonsammy April 29, 2009 at 10:22 am

“Thanks for telling my side of the picnic table just got painted,”


AxmxZ April 29, 2009 at 10:27 am

“Let’s see, we ‘christened’ the swings, the picnic table – next time, let’s meet on the see-saw!”

DangerousLiberal April 29, 2009 at 10:58 am

Do you see the platinum and silver carriage bolts holding this picnic table together! Christ, in my day we had to deal with shitty picnic tables with rusty iron bolts just like everyone else. Times are tight, you know. Why do BHO and FDR hate America? Wake up you morans!

dementor April 29, 2009 at 11:02 am

That’s not a table, that’s a Korean War-era tank convertible.

“America must be destroyed, it’s our only hop.. hey David did the tellyprompter go down or something?” *drinks blood of white baby*

bunnyhead April 29, 2009 at 11:12 am

where’s the beef? no food on the table? or is this a ‘box lunch’?

Mexifinn April 29, 2009 at 11:21 am

“So I faked to the left, pivoted, cut straight through the middle and dunked that sucker. B’dunk a dunk!”

“B’dunk a dunk?”

[re=302985]dementor[/re]: Yeah, I have never seen such a robust table! But then Hills has put on the pounds lately!

“tell Jabba that even I get boarded sometimes…you think i had a choice?”

HipHopOpotamus April 29, 2009 at 11:50 am

Obama’s kinda a fatty now. Where’s that basketball court?

Sarah Palin ( April 29, 2009 at 12:00 pm

How come that idiot Stephen W. Bochron got a picnic table named after him and I haven’t yet? Also.


Go Figure April 29, 2009 at 12:13 pm

Nice table– make sure you have 24/7 security watching it or some unemployed people with home foreclosures will steal the damned thing for a makeshift shelter or firewood!

HipHopOpotamus April 29, 2009 at 12:27 pm

Arlen at the White HouseAbbey Road.

Nobama’s out of sync with the other two – a clear sign he’s actually dead.
