Tea Party ‘Movment’ Ready To Mov America Forward

Maine is a Movmenteable Feast.
The teabaggers are putting the “red” back in “lobster” here at the Maine Lobsterback Festival! Sadly, they are taking the “e” out of “Movement,” because the letter E is brought to you by Socialism. Thanks to Wonkette operative “Ablington,” who says, “I am half hoping that the guy at Kinko’s who made their banner did this on purpose, but the Maine Tea Party is just probably that stupid.”

    So, my brother took that picture…he said that the dude holding the banner who is not pictured had a look on his face like “SEE?!? I knew those Libruls would laugh and point and take photos for all the wrong, non-patriotic reasons!!”

  2. Come here a minute

    “Refudiate,” “Movment.” English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!

  3. An American in Toronto

    Oh Nooo! Please stop them from ruining my home state. They better not have marched my beloved Yarmouth Clam Festival or the Maine Mall Parking Lot Festival.

    As for the spelling, my own sweet dad spells lettuce, “letties,” so that’s par for the course.

    Between the missing E and the absent space in Tea Party, they’ve identified all kinds of efficiencies. Free market linguistics!

  5. Thrillhouse Goes Bananas!

    I’d like to think that the guy at the banner shop saw this on a PDF before he cut the vinyl and then just smiled to himself and went about his work.

    Misspellings aside, why are the following letters italic:

    The Maine Teaparty Movment
    Have You Had Enough Yet?

    And to answer the question, I’m so deeply buried under the previous president’s wreckage that it’s impossible to assess whether I’ve had enough of the current one.

  7. Tundra Grifter

    [re=635992]Extemporanus[/re]: Nice! This is the sort of Movment one generally experiences in the smallest room in the house.

    AKA a “Ducey” after Steve Ducey.

  8. SayItWithWookies

    I’m sure the missing e will show up later, if there’s a judgement to be made or possibly during a lightening strike.

  9. jus_wonderin

    Does his T-shirt have similar spelling error? That’s got bite. “W@ ord@rd 500 of ths damn shirts and by God w@ ar@ going to w@ar th@m!!”

  10. Prommie

    [re=636010]SayItWithWookies[/re]: yes, yes, this is very good, it made me, to coin a phrase, laugh out loud, which alarmed my co-workers.

  11. ella

    [re=635982]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Yeah, but the whole town turned out for it. Looks like enough people there that some are from the next town over too.

  12. LakeLucilleLoon

    It’s Maine, I hope that Pennywise the clown comes back up from the sewers and eats all of the Maine Teabaggers.

  13. Serolf Divad

    Fact: Ernesto Che Guevara had thee, count ‘em, three “E”s in his name (if you count the nickname “Che” as part of his name).

  14. An Otter of Magnitude

    Come on, shortening “Tea Party” to one word is perfectly reasonable. It made the Analyst-Therapists of the world seem more professional, why wouldn’t it work for them?

  15. IceCreamEmpress

    [re=636030]Airborne Toxic Event[/re]: So says the GAY GAY GAY CALIFORNIAN GAY MATH PROFESSOR GAY LIBRUL Tom Lehrer, you mean. Who is also a Jewish.

    [re=636038] Serolf Divad[/re]: I get five in my gay Californian librul maths (if I count “Che”).

    Dear Maine Teaparty:

    I had a movement considerably more intelligent than yours after this morning’s bran muffin.

    No love,

    Notice how this enthusiastic crowd of lobster celebraters at the Lobster Fest are just ignoring the shit out of these characters. Most of them looking back down the road and probably whispering to each other “Isn’t there another marching band coming?”

    [re=636010]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I saw what you did there.

  17. El Pinche

    I’m thinking one of those diabetics teabaggers was arguing with the kinko’s elitist college libtard for 25 minutes over the spelling. Commonsence America won.

  18. comicbookguy

    Welcome everyone to our weekly meeting of the Maine Teaparty Movment. Our protest was a big success. Dozens of people saw our banner and became aware of our existence for a brief moment. Kudos to George for printing the banner. Now, next order of business. Did anyone hide a cookie for me?

    [re=635989]american mutt[/re]: is the name of my latest venture: matching sad, lonely and only mildly racist Murkan slobs with sad, lonely undocumented workers of the opposite sex to protect the crappity, I mean, sanctity of marriage. It’s modeled after the mail-order bride business, but I cut costs on shipping because my matches are already doing your dishes or mowing your lawn.

  21. doxastic

    Upon further reflection, the typos–while certainly funny–pale in comparison to the slogan’s unintentionally hilarious metacommentary. Maine “Teaparty”: Snark yourself before THEY SNARK YOU!

  22. LuxMentis

    To be clear, they marched at the Thomaston 4th of July parade with the same banner (we took a number of pictures then for merry mocking purposes). They have to know, at this point, that the error exists. Really quite something…

  23. germansteel

    To answer their question, why, yes! Yes, I have had more than enough of the Teaparty Movment, thank you for asking.

  24. An Outhouse

    Their sign is confusing. Have I had enough what yet?

    Beer? No.
    Herb? No.
    Peanuts? No way.
    Old, pasty, fat, yelly white guys with signs? Yes.

  25. Botswana Meat Commission FC

    Obviously these are not ravers. They never, ever, ever, leave home without the E.

  26. just pixels

    Well, I know what “movment” means even if you guys don’t. So stop trying to cover up your vocabulary deficiencies with snide remarks about the Main Teaparty.

  27. Ablington

    [re=636099]LuxMentis[/re]: What?? WHAT?! This is the second recorded use of the sign? They had fully a month to a. get a new banner, or b. simply throw it out and go bannerless? My God.

  28. rmjag

    i wouldn’t mind their movment if they had a healthier diet . but they don’t , and i have had enough

  29. the problem child

    Yes, yes, I HAVE had enough Maine Teaparty Movment! Where can I get a nice, hot towel?

    “This is the picture I took of a truck in Maine during a Fourth of July parade, notice the Confederate flag on the front bumper: There’s racist hicks even in the backwoods of Maine.” – montyburns4prez.

    Do you know anything about the confederate flag, moron…..obviously not. Dont put down “the hicks” when you are about as educated as a farm goat yourself.

  31. Beaver

    [re=636368]montyburns4prez[/re]: do you know anything about the confederate flag? obviously not…typical dumba$$ with no education spewing from your piehole about things you know nothing about….


  32. comicbookguy

    [re=636565]Beaver[/re]: I know the confederate flag was founded by Nazis and stitched by Charles Manson based on blueprints he received from Satan through his fax machine. Then there’s the unimportant historical details that don’t matter much to the good ol’ boys: Slavery. Treason. War. Jim Crow. KKK. Fuck you. Also.

    Every confederate flag ought to have a swastika painted over it because they are pretty much the same thing.

  33. montyburns4prez

    [re=636565]Beaver[/re]: You mean the same farm goat you had sex with last night?

    Let’s see, confederate flag represents a government that supported slavery. Yeah so I think I know what the confederate flag is about. Jacka$$
