'santorum' sounds icky in every language

Even Taiwan Cracking ‘Come From Behind’ Jokes About Rick Santorum

Add to Flipboard Magazine.


The busy animator-slaves in Taiwan watched the Iowa GOP caucuses, too! They apparently also had pretty good drugs, since we missed the awesome part of the evening where a giant Octopus ate Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney was pelted with Bibles. At least they correctly understood that all Iowa caucus newz items are required by law and decency to come headlined with a gross Rick Santorum zinger like “Santorum nearly squeezes out come-from-behind Iowa caucus victory.” [NMA.tv]

    He "squeezed out a come from behind…." Looks like Rick's been working his male Kegel exercises.

  • nounverb911

    This is good news for KY Jelly.

  • edgydrifter

    Santorum is slippery and foul. And so is the candidate.

  • ProgressiveInga

    Buttsecks humor is no respecter of culture.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I reckon that them Oriental folks are rooting for Mitt, due to his record on reducing Asian unemployment over the years.

  • SexySmurf

    If I didn't already know that America is the greatest, bestest, most bitchin' thing Jeebus ever blessed, I'd think we were the laughing stock of the world.

    "…we missed the awesome part of the evening where a giant Octopus ate Newt Gingrich…"

    Look closer. Cthulhu always reclaims His Own.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      The giant squid scene in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was one of my favorites.

      • finallyhappy

        Cephalopods are really intelligent so I don't think one would eat Newt.

        The silent version or cartoon version or what?

        • BaldarTFlagass

          The one I remember from my youth was a disney pic, I think made in the 1950s?

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

            Haven't seen that. Will put on list. Nothing like a good cephalopod tentacle-fight.

          • HistoriCat

            I think that's the one with Kirk Douglas.

  • Grief_Lessons

    He who cannot be Googled cannot be elected.

  • littlebigdaddy

    Better political analysis than I heard on Fux Newz.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Far more comprehensible, anyway. Maybe Fox should go with the subtitles.

      • Rotundo_

        Their target audience is illiterate, who would read them?

        • PocketsTheClown

          Bears. Or (redacted)tards.

    Isn't that Santorum's US Rep?

  • NorthStarSpanx

    I'm glad all this political comedy gold is not lost in translation.

    You know what else "sounds icky in every language?"

      gefilte fish?

      Chris Christie and Marcus Bachmann getting it on in an airport bathroom stall?

      Callista Gingrich?

    • Rotundo_

      Lutefisk.

    • sarjo

      yo mama?

  • SayItWithWookies

    Silly me — I would've sworn it was going to be Rick Perry who most needed to worry about Santorum on his back.

  • superdave

    Oh man! That is all kindsa awesome! As a person of Taiwanese descent, I'm going to bask in their reflected glory.

    • http://oliphantparts.org/ natoslug

      As someone who ate Korean food a few weeks ago, I'm also going to bask in their reflected glory. Korea's in Taiwanland, right?

  • hagajim

    Gotta love the buttseks humor. And now we get to pull off the hilarious Santorum jokes at least through South Carolina.

  • MissTaken

    The world thanks you, Dan Savage.

  • Callyson

    Today, we are all a giant octopus…

  • chascates

    Must be something in the rice.

  • PsycWench

    Dammit, I managed to distract my 69-year-old mom when she asked what the other meaning of Santorum is. Keep this in the news and I'll eventually have to dish out my signature daughterly line "I'm going to ask you to trust me when I say YOU DON"T WANT TO KNOW".

    • http://www.storycorner.us/ JustPixelz

      You're back! That evil psychology gig didn't work out, eh?

      If you haven't seen it already, watch Julia Sweeney's "Sex Ed." monologue at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry-LwxR746s&no

      It's a funny (to me) account of how a little misdirection discussing sex with a child, leads to unforeseen (yet foreseeable) consequences.

    • finallyhappy

      You underestimate your mom. my husband is almost 70- and he knows all about this!

  • Dashboard Buddha

    I thought Marcus came from behind.

    Maybe Wonkette needs to have Weather Girls, like they have http://www.nma.tv/wednesday-weather-girl-mimi-50/

    • Beowoof

      Maybe we could get Stephanie Abrams over at the Weather Channel to change her reporting style. It would wake me up in the morning.

    • KarenJ503

      Or life-size doll Weather Girls…

    Finally, a serious Republican presidential candidate that is a piece of shit both figuratively and literally!

  • FakaktaSouth

    This Santorum Mass Mockery Iowan Surge is nothing but good for me. I know it sounds crazy but the more sunlight, the more this shit is shown for what it is and the less people around here will cleave to it. Even more Santorum all over the place – it's so good for the stupids, so much bad comes from the "just barely knowing" around here, I swear.

  • dijetlo

    This article from Catholic.org

    You can't make this shit up…..

      Especially the double-entendre comments which made it past the censors.

      It's been tight, but somehow things have opened up for Santorum. He'll finish strong, you'll see. You'll be seeing Santorum all over the place.

      Santorum is the comeback story of the year. He came out of nowhere into this murky field republican candidates, all tight in the polls but very different in character. Santorum is truly the only candidate who represents true Christian values. No one comes back like Santorum! He's the only one who will beat back the brown come November.

        I agree it is invigorating to see Santorum squeaking out a number-two victory. After a long push from behind, Santorum has clearly emerged from the rear of GOP contenders. If Santorum can come from behind today, we should expect to see more of him coming up in the near future.

  • paris biltong

    Her in France, people are kinda taken aback by Sahnto-room, still identified on TV news as "le sénateur de Pensylvanie". They mistrust his religiosity and are flabbergasted by a politician who thanks God for his election results, things not seen since the nineteenth century.

    • PocketsTheClown

      Pennsylvania does share a border with West Virginia.

  • MaxNeanderthal

    I hear his wife doesn't know which way to turn…..

  • ttommyunger

    With all the top contenders sucking on the God Teat so hard it's beginning to look like the Taliban is winning over here without even setting foot on American soil.

  • C_R_Eature

    I remember thinking in January, 2009 that "Whatever happens now, we'll never be this embarrassed by our leaders in front of the whole wide world again!"

    So, So wrong.

  • Snarkfest

    That's because Taiwan is hipper than Iowa.

  • OneYieldRegular

    I can usually take or leave these Taiwanese animation bits, but I find that throwing bibles thing hysterical.

  • Canmon

    "Santorum" is Mandarin for "frothy".

    • Numbat_Dundee

      It's actually close enough to "San Tou Ren" which sort of means "Three headed man".

  • Tommmcattt

    Was that lil' Andy Breightbart hanging himself in shame and despair in the video there?

    I think I just had a spontaneous orgasm.

  • Redhead

    Usually these animations are hilarious, but if there is one thing I do NOT want a visualization of, it's Santorum.
