daily beast on such a roll this week

Meghan McCain Fired From Being Wonkette GOP Gal Pal Bestie

BF Not FAll those years of hair-braiding and pillow fights. All those thousands of reader comments devoted to saying really terribly offensive shit about your rack. We loved you long time, Megs McCabe, but sometimes the things that fall out of your typey fingers are just too much to bear. You wanna side with Sarah Palin on someone else’s skull being a cauldron of brain-poop? And that person is our Old Handsome Joe? Sorry, Megs, but cue Donald Trump: YOU ARE NO LONGER EMPLOYED.

Let us examine what you dictated to Siri for your Daily Beast Dear Diary, which is Just Cause for your termination:

If Democrats want to win in November, all they have to do is one simple thing: replace Joe Biden with Hillary Clinton for vice president.

This is a pretty popular sentiment—it seems like the only thing Republicans and Democrats can agree on. It’s something that people have been saying to me everywhere from cocktail parties to airports since President Obama has been elected to office. Many politicians and pundits have reiterated that statement publicly. Sarah Palin recently went on Fox News and said the same thing: if President Obama wants a sure fire way of getting reelected this election cycle, Hillary would give him “a darn good chance of winning.”

But of course, the White House is pushing back, saying that Republicans are merely “trying to distract attention” by suggesting Hillary is a better fit for Obama. Yes, that must be it! Republicans are the ones doing the distracting, not the gaffe-prone vice president, whose own staff is reportedly trying to “save Biden from himself.”

Oooh, oooh! We read that Politico story! And the story intimated fairly clearly that Biden’s staff was sort of idiotic to do so — a cluck of scared hens keeping Biden from being his Teh Awesome Best self — and that they were in fact playing against their own interests. Maybe you just skimmed it?

Anyway, it is terribly churlish of Obama to reject these helpful suggestions from his opponents! And how correct you are that everyone, including all Democrats (or all Democrats who are Jon Stewart maybe?) is soooo embarrassed by Joe Biden, who said “chains,” which outrage was not in the least manufactured by desperate Romney campaigners being desperate, desperately. What else you got, Meghan?

Aside from the likability factor, I can criticize Hillary’s politics all day long, but I never question her intelligence. I have never doubted that she is a strong, capable, smart leader. The same cannot be said for Vice President Biden.

The woman whose main claim to a pundit gig is that her father foisted Sarah Palin on an unsuspecting nation thinks Joe Biden is stupid. She doubts his intelligence.

It is going to take a hell of a muffin basket to win our friendship back after this one, Megs McCabe. :(

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • ChernobylSoup

    The size and scope of the fuck I do not give about Meghan McCain is epic.

    • Native_of_SL_UT

      There are only two things I care about with Meg. The rest, meh.

    • cheetojeebus

      Right there at the top, COD. Well done.

  • FreckleRaiser

    They're pretty worried about the next election. Or they are afraid of what the administration will use Joe to "accidentally" say next.

  • Barb_

    "muffin basket?" Is that an euphemism for something or is it actually festive buttery baked goods?

    • nounverb911

      Welcome back, are you Canadian now?

      • Barb_

        Noun! No, I am not a Canadian yet. The more I read about Canada the more I have a deep respect for the country and the Canadian people.

        Good to see ya!

    • Callyson

      Good morning…and now I crave a festive buttery baked good!

      • Barb_

        Callyson! I overslept in a big way and I can't jolt myself fully awake just yet.

        • Callyson

          Coffee…lots of coffee…balanced out with cold water. Works for me. (Alternates sips of coffee and water…)

      • freakishlywrong

        But NOT a "sticky treat".

        • Misty Malarky

          Can I pay for a muffin basket with food stamps?

    • SorosBot

      Morning, and it's great to see you again!

      • Barb_

        Morning Soros! I am here to start MissTaken's birthday tomorrow early. We need cake!

        It's always great to see you.

        • fartknocker

          Nice to see you back Barb. If I make the cake, I can fill it with lots of dark chocolate and Mrs. Fatknocker makes a wonderful chocolate ganache.

          • Barb_

            So good to see you Fartknocker. I think we need ice cream with the cake.

          • tessiee

            "Mrs. Fatknocker makes a wonderful chocolate ganache."

            Megan IS Mrs. Fatknockers; that's the only reason we pay any attention to her.

        • SorosBot

          Sadly it's still a couple weeks until we'll be together in person again; then we can really celebrate her birthday. That and she gets to meet my parents.

          • Barb_

            Soros, I know you miss her. It will just make it that much sweeter when you get to see her.

    • Terry

      I'm hoping it's the festive buttery baked goods. I've no interest in any other muffins Meghan might be offering.

      She's a truly stupid person with a profound lack of self awareness.

      • Isyaignert

        "She's a truly stupid person with a profound lack of self awareness" applies to 100% of Republicons.

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

      Yes. Megs buys all her undergarments at Victoria's Boulangerie. (Nice to see ya, how's that pinky hangin'?)

      • sullivanst

        Je croix que c'est La Patisserie de Victoria, parce-qu'ils vendant les muffins.

        • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

          Oui, c'est mieux! Mon Francais c'est comme un bebe, parce-que j'etait un etudiant dans le systeme Americain.

        • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

          Mais "lingerie"/"langerie" a un bon son, n'est-ce pas?

          • sullivanst

            Oui, c'ést vrai, ils sont les mots qui vont très bien ensemble (très bien ensemble). Mais, les jeux de mots bilingues sont difficiles.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

            Quel frottage! Uh, attendez…

      • Barb_

        The pinkie hangs well, my friend.

        • bobbert

          Are you returned, or is this but an ether(net)eal visitation?

  • bumfug

    But you do, however, still have an awesome rack.

  • Goonemeritus

    When will Wonkette’s war on women end, especially the zaftig ones?

    • GhostBuggy

      When they greet us as liberators and give up that sweet, sweet crude.

    • YouBetcha

      I'd hit that. I just wouldn't want her to talk. Someone lend me a muzzle?

  • SpeedoFart

    Is "muffin basket" a euphemism for something?

    • SpeedoFart

      Damn, should've refreshed! It's nice to know I wasn't the only one with that reaction, though.

      (Is it uncouth to reply to my own post?)

      • http://twitter.com/iburl iburl

        SpeedoFart is worried about being uncouth.

        • SpeedoFart

          Don't be hatin'.

  • http://hong-kong-actresses.blogspot.com/ Chow Yun Flat

    It is going to take a hell of a muffin basket to win our friendship back

    If you would settle for a muffin top it will be easy for Megs.

  • Pithaughn

    Help me out here, is this a legitimate termination or illegitimate ?

  • Baconzgood

    Boy this is the most obvious way to point out the right wing echo chamber.

    1) create (an imagined) controversy
    2) put on fox news and AM talk radio
    3) ??????
    4) profit

    • Callyson

      3) Successfully create a distraction from actual issues (Mittens' taxes. Ryan's plan to destroy Medicare) by getting people to chatter about invented issues instead.

      • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

        I don't think it's working too well, if you need to enlist Megs in the campaign.

        • Butch_Wagstaff

          Or Sarah Palin.

  • Billmatic

    Is there anything anyone can say about Meg's looks without being terribly offensive?

    How about "Hngnnngngghhhhnnnggg"?

    • ElPinche

      Motorboat.

    • kittensdontlie

      When she turns her head to the side, just a certain way, her auditory canal is exposed, and what appears to be a black light strobe and a mirrored disco ball can be seen inside her brain cavity. Other than that, what is there to say…

      • Billmatic

        Anyone smarter than Megs is too smart to fall for me.

    • Pennywhistler

      Then Meg asks: "How do you spell that?"

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

    It seems like the only thing Republicans and Democrats can agree on

    What Democrats?

    No, really, what Democrats, where? Can somebody name one?

    • sullivanst

      The ones who have cocktails with Megs McCabe, of course!

      Welcome to The Village, my friend.

      • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

        Are they related to the Bain investor who tells Harry Reid things?

        • sullivanst

          It would be irresponsible not to speculate they're the same person.

          • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

            Did they go to the University of Um, Somewhere with that Seven Foot Doctor and Some Lady who gives Michele Bachmann medical facts too? I'm going to guess so.

        • tessiee

          I suspect that there's a Bain investor who tells Mittens things.
          Bad things.
          Very, very bad and sinful things.
          "Fire them! Fire them ALL, Willard! Then have a cup of coffee, moohahaha!"

    • Terry

      Formerly Wonkette's own, Alex Pareene, although I'm hoping it's satire and I just missed it: http://www.salon.com/2012/08/20/get_ready_for_vic

      • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

        How could you think this isn't satire?

        • Terry

          I'm just back from two weeks of peaceful vacation. My gears aren't yet fully engaged.

        • sullivanst

          Especially with the links

  • Schmannnity

    Show us yer tits and we'll think about forgiving you.

    • PubOption
      • Pennywhistler

        Everything is better in Italy.

      • horsedreamer_1

        Saw her naked, while pregnant, on SuicideGirls, back in '03.

        It was glorious.

    • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

      Well, SOME will forgive you.
      And by SOME, I mean horny dudes who have never even kissed a girl.

      • Angry_Marmot

        We won't actually forgive her, we just want to see her tits.

  • comrad_darkness

    That dusty playbook against the Clintons isn't going to run itself you know.

  • http://hong-kong-actresses.blogspot.com/ Chow Yun Flat

    I have never doubted that she is a strong, capable, smart leader. The same cannot be said for Vice President Biden.

    Since Megs doubted Joe's ability to lead the President should dump him. OK, got it.

    • OneYieldRegular

      That statement tells me everything I ever need to know about Meghan McCain.

  • Eve8Apples

    Pussy Riot/Muffin Basket 2012!

  • Calapine

    I watched a full speech of him recently and he comes across as very authentic and knowledgeable.

    A President Biden would be nothing to be afraid of.

    • sullivanst

      Old Handsome Joe is at least seven shades of awesome, which is why deserate Romneyites are desperately attempting a whispering campaign to have him replaced, out of desperation.

    • Terry

      Well, he might replace the presidential limo with an El Camino or a Firebird. That could be either scary or awesome, depending on how you choose to look at it.

      • Isyaignert

        OT, but I just learned the glass in presidental limo is 24 layers of 1/4" glass = 6 inches thick. The chasis is actually from a one ton truck. Each president gets a new one and the old one is destroyed to keep its technology secret.

        • Terry

          Holy moley. It's a wonder that thing doesn't sink into the asphalt on a hot day.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_
          • Terry

            Yeah, but I did essentially that in a Volkswagen Dasher loaded down with suitcases and household items, so I wasn't all that impressed.

  • Fox n Fiends

    "I can criticize Hillary’s politics all day long, but that would take effort and my maid can't type that much."

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      "And Consuela mostly speaks that Mexican talk."

  • Estproph

    I never understood why so many otherwise reasonable people thought Meghan McCain was anything but a repub, because she is clearly a repub. Eventually she was going to cross over the line into siding with the repubs. The fact that on some issues she comes off as reasonable ins't proof that she's reasonable – even Joe McCarthy loved his mother, after all.

    • Terry

      She's not smart enough to figure out that the only Republicans who like her are her parents.

    • SorosBot

      Basically, she's liberal on social issues, but still conservative on any issue that might affect her inheritance. And she's not into the insane conspiracy-mongering birtherism and the like, which is sadly rare in today's Republican party.

      • Estproph

        That is I think part of her attraction: because she stands up to crazystupid racists, she comes off as sane, and since sanity is at an all-time low, people make the assumption that she is actually liberal (and sometimes even a democrat) – which she is not.

      • horsedreamer_1

        She should ne voting for Gary Johnson come November, then. But she won't be.

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

      Nobody thought that.

      • Estproph

        I've seen too many comments from too many people on too many boards that do think just that.

        • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

          Who? Liberals? Wingnuts? I wouldn't expect that a thinking liberal would think Megs isn't a Republican just because she has nice things to say about some social issues and decries some of the batshit. That is not enough to make you "not a Republican." Wingnuts, on the other hand, are stupid enough to believe anyone who makes sense even once is a "RINO."

          Until she goes as far as Ron Reagan, she is clearly a Republican.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Johnny-Appletruth/133951326629923?sk=wall deanbooth

      She's a Republican like a 10-year-old is a Catholic.

  • Baconzgood

    I was at the airport 2 days ago and EVERYONE was talking about replacing Biden.

    • horsedreamer_1

      I give you ten Friedman units.

  • YouBetcha

    Dumb broad says what?

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

    Well, it's not as though I loved her for her mind, anyways.

  • PuckStopsHere

    This from a woman who we can see in the picture is apparently unaware that one does not wear ones dress and high-heeled shoes to bed…

    • Geminisunmars

      Crap. Another thing I've been doing wrong.

    • tessiee

      …unless the client specifically requests that she do so.

  • http://www.wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

    At all the cocktail parties I go to, I keep hearing about how Paul Ryan is demanding the gaff prone Mitt Romney to step down and let him be the presidential candidate with his gay lover.

    Why won't Romney listen to this advice and save his party? Why won't Megs write about this?

    • Living in Joy

      I heard the same thing from my brother-in-law who says he heard it while standing in line at a Chik-Fil-A. I don't know why Megs just doesn't come clean and call for Ryan to be placed at the top of the ticket. Everyone is saying it – even her Daddy.

      • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

        It's all over Arizona.

  • http://www.wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

    You know, if only Obama would take all his advice from Republicans, I'm sure they would embrace his presidency and support him.

    • sullivanst

      Why, does that only work in the second term?

    • Geminisunmars

      It's not as if he hasn't tried this.

      • http://www.wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

        Yes, but surely this time the Republicans mean it.

        • Geminisunmars

          Well, they are a sincere and well-meaning lot. So what the hay.

  • viennawoods13

    Yep, Dems, take the advice of Republicans about replacing Joe with Hilary, because obviously they want to give you a better shot at winning in November- good sports that they are in the GOP.

    • Chichikovovich

      Ah, memories. Back when Hillary was fighting out the primary with Obama, I remember a flood of stories about how Hillary had won the respect of her Senate Republican colleagues with her businesslike approach. I saw pictures of the photo-op big, high-profile rapprochement with Richard Mellon Scaife, paleoconservative megarich guy who bankrolled the "Arkansas project" digging up dirt on the Clintons. Scaife was just completely won over by Hillary's awesomeness. And tabarnak, even Karl Rove [I witnessed this myself!] on Fox went on and on about what a superb candidate Hillary would be and how if she were nominated the Democrats would have it in the bag, etc. And there was so much more of that, from all sorts of raving wingnut loons.

      It's nice to see, in this cynical day and age, people transcending partisanship to just give honest and open expressions of respect.

      And I had thought that they had entire libraries full of opposition research and already-storyboarded commercials ready to sink a Hillary campaign like a stone. I suppose I was wrong. I guess – unlike Erin Burnett – I'm just not able to take a risk to trust. [And I grew up in a small town, too. Go figure.]

    • kittensdontlie

      So they can dredge up HillaryCare and LewinskyGate, distracting the public from the IRScamgate of our Lord-in-Waiting Romney of Mittens.

  • http://Wonkette.com MLHencken

    Muffin Basket = how Megs refers to her underwears?

  • Dr. Nick Riviera

    I have never understood the fascination with this woman. I remember Maddow having her on to discuss tax policy and Megs rolling over and baring her throat with a "Tee hee! I don't really know much about that!". But then when she went on some other show where they were more inclined to shut up and let the celebrity speak she spent the whole time trashing Obama's tax policy.

    • Billmatic

      The whole fascination with her is that she's a zaftig bombshell.

  • SorosBot

    Can I still think Megs is cute and one of the few Republicans who I think I could actually have a pleasant conversation with?

    • Geminisunmars

      Absolutely not! You must march with all the Wonketeers, on this and every other topic.

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

      Since I don't think either of those things, I can safely say that she is now caking makeup on the party line like a trollop.

    • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

      yes but you can't look at her boobs while having this pleasant conversation.

  • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

    I'll push for Joe Biden to be replaced when he says we'll be welcomed as liberators about a country we're about to invade for no reason. Or chooses to say nothing about gay marriage because it would be politically inconvenient. Or shoots a guy in the face. But chains? Yeah, fucking chains. He's right about that one.

    • Terry

      I don't recall Joe Biden insisting that waterboarding isn't torture, either.

      • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

        Or pushing massive no-bid contracts to a company he's getting deferred payments from. Or insisting that capturing or killing Osama bin Laden isn't a big deal and then saying it was a no-brainer when somebody else does it. Or outing one of our own intelligence operatives solely for revenge against her husband. Why the fuck isn't this guy in jail already?

        • Terry

          Well, his heart was removed from his chest but he just keeps on living. Jail ain't nothing to the undead.

          • redarmyzombie

            Speaking of hearts, is it wrong of me to want to perform an Aztec ceremony on the guy?

          • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

            You'd be asking for trouble — giving the Sun God that seared little raisin for an offering would only make him mad.

        • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

          Also too, refusing to comply with Executive Orders because the Vice President is now part of the Legislative branch, I just decided.

    • Geminisunmars

      Yeah, what is the big fucking deal, anyway?

    • joshleefolsom

      I'll say he's right. George Will said the minimum wage should be zero, and if that isn't support for slavery I don't know what is. But every time somebody makes a truthfully blunt assertion like that they turn around and take it back, like Maher with the cowards lobbing bombs and gutsy hijackers, etc. Might suck, but still true.

  • viennawoods13

    Side note (not boob). What is it with these female pundits going for the glamour shots? Really? Because they def. want to be taken seriously as deep thinkers? It's not working, ladies.

    • tessiee

      "Because they def. want to be taken seriously as deep thinkers?"

      No, because they're attention whores.
      Believe me, if the males could get more attention by showing a little…
      neck, if you know what I mean…
      they'd do it in a heartbeat.

      • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

        Someone told Beck he looked sexy with his blackboard so he's been tied to it ever since.

  • Come here a minute

    Thank you for your advice, we're so glad you're concerned about President Obama's re-election chances. Next will you please tell us that you've heard it from your best Democratic sources that the only thing better than dumping Vice President Biden for Secretary of State Clinton would be to dump Vice President Biden for former half-term Governor Palin. Thanks again. Goodbye.

        Actually still have a soft spot for Eloy from long ago when the car's water pump blew-up and I coasted into Eloy. Shop just off the highway had me with a re-built one back on the highway in about an hour and a half. Notalotta $$$ either.

        • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

          I feel the same way about Tutumcari, New Mexico. While I was waiting for my notalotta $$$ repair, the nice lady in the repair shop office told me her young daughter hated her name Katrina ever since the hurricane. I think about that kid from time to time.

  • Shypixel

    I'd still do her. Dove "Real Beauty" figure and all…

    Hell maybe I could hump the conservatard out of her…

    • Shypixel

      I just realized that the second part of this comment is probably the most sexist thing I have ever said in a public forum…

      Am I a Republican mole, and just don't know it?

      • Geminisunmars

        It is okay to be sexist if you know you are being sexist.

    • horsedreamer_1

      Fuck the stain away.

  • http://howtosavetheworld.ca/ BZ1

    This is what they are going with to distract from the "show me the money" issue?

    • sullivanst

      To be fair, Megs could've been a good distraction, but they shouldn't have let her say anything.

  • Beowoof

    I can never really hear or see anything Meghan does, because I am focused on her rack.

  • MissTaken

    Sorry Megs, but I live by the 'always do and think the exact opposite of Sarah Palin'. That you agreed with the TundraTwat gives me a sad.

  • not that Dewey

    Cocktail parties AND airports? That covers just about every place I can imagine.

    • Geminisunmars

      Serious discussion in those places is more important than in quiet rooms.

      Well of course they love Hillary Clinton, and aren't just pretending to do so in order to try and create strife among Democrats; I mean it's not like they spent years demonizing her and making shit up like calling her a lesbian and claiming that she had murdered a good friend who committed suicide, who they also claimed was her lover even as they continued with the lesbian thing, or anything.

      • sullivanst

        Not to mention all those repugnant slurs they like totally didn't heap upon her daughter.

        And they totally didn't have bumper stickers in the 90's saying "Impeach Clinton, And Her Husband, Too!". No sirree, they did not.

        • SorosBot

    "Democrats (or all Democrats who are Jon Stewart maybe?) is soooo embarrassed by Joe Biden, who said “chains,” which outrage was not in the least manufactured by desperate Romney campaigners being desperate, desperately. "

    The "chains" outrage makes no sense to me. Who's supposed to be outraged? Black people?
    Don't think so. Republicans are working feverishly to suppress black voter turnout and they expect us to freak about the use of the word "chains"?

    Is it white southerners who are supposed to outraged for Handsome Joe co-opting their dog whistles?

    Is it Wall Street? Are they outraged because Barry hasn't been as nice to them as Republicans even though they've managed to thrive during his time in office? Fact is, under a real progressive president, most of them would be either in jail or unemployed.

    Any of my fellow wonketters speak wingnut?

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

      You're absolutely right. They won't spell their logic out because a) they didn't think it through, and were only trying to win a couple of news/fundraising cycles, and b) they don't want to engage on their party's hostility to black voters because then they'd be churning out even more gaffes. However, they are so busy high-fiving each other in public on their voter-suppression that they have no choice but to go all-in with their explicit Racism. So Joe wins.

    • tessiee

      Well, "chains" by itself they might have overlooked, but coming less than a week after Joe saying the word "father"?
      This outrage will not stand.

    • tessiee

      My best guess?
      The manufactured outrage du jour over Biden speaking the word "chains" is supposed to convince people that Democrats are the REAL racists.

  • Tundra Grifter

  • Chichikovovich

    So Megan McCain was, until recently, your BFF? And come on, admit it, will be again soon? That reminds me…..

    The French satirical weekly to which I'm addicted, Le Canard Enchaîné, has a recurring comic strip about "Les Boeufs", with one kind of central figure and then a bunch of his friends. I puzzled for awhile about what the heck that title was getting at, but then I recognized that it was a kind of bilingual text-age pun. The French "Boeufs" is a rough phonetic approximation of how a francophone would attempt to pronounce "BFFs", an acronym that has crossed the Atlantic. Literally, "Le Boeuf" means "the beef", or more aptly in this case "the steer" or "the oxen".

    I just thought you all would find this interesting. Why it happened to come to mind in this post in particular, I can't figure out at all.

    • Isyaignert

      I "heart" France and swear I was a Frenchwoman in a past life. I'm going there for the fourth time next fall – if the world doesn't end on my birthday like everyone's expecting.

    • tessiee

      Wait… Is that duck enchanted, or chained?

      Mon francais est mal, et mechant, et malade, et mauvais.

      • Chichikovovich

        It means "the chained-up duck"or (perhaps closer to the intended meaning) "the enslaved duck". Long story, the short form of which is that in 1915, when the parody newspaper was founded, there had been a newspaper called "L'homme Libre" ("The Free Man"). Hence: "The Enslaved Duck".

        (Apparently there were some additional jokes bound up with the title that turned on slang uses of "canard", that have passed from common use. Not sure what the additional overtones were.)

        —-
        Edit: Just did some reading around, and sad to say, my conjecture about Boeufs Beaufs** – though Fields-medal calibre brilliant – was 100% wrong. "Beauf" is the cartoonist's coinage, short for "Beau – frère" i.e. "brother-in-law".

        **(Sigh – my mind substituted a spelling that made sense to me. Bad mind! Bad!)

    • Nostrildamus

      Why it happened to come to mind in this post in particular, I can't figure out at all.

      With Megs, the question "où est le boeuf?" is always paramount.

    If nothing else, I gotta hand it to her — she did a great job of parlaying a total lack of talent (combined with great family connections and a really, really recognizable last name) into a decent level of semi-fame.
