The rule for today is mostly Nice Time posts. Everyone already knows what happened in 2016; we don’t really have to repeat it. But Jesus Fuck, was everything terrible. We ran out of money! (But you sent more.) We laid off Robyn! (But she still comes part-time.) We bought a house! And the week we moved in, Shy’s dad fucking died.

I mean COME ON.

And all the time, you have been there. You’ve been there for us, yes, with money and love notes. But mostly, you’ve been there for each other. You threw your own meetups! You gave each other succor. You held each other when the worst possible thing happened — worse than Trump even — and one of your children died.

We thank you in our hearts for being here with us, we just usually show it by yelling at you. (YOU LIKE IT.)

And all we can give you in return is 10 to 12 hours a day of reading the news for you, and maybe just a few little baby pix. So have the Year in Donna Rose Pictures, just for you. Collect and trade them all, or something!

We love you, we love you, we love you, we love you. Better luck next year, us!

A Wonker sent Donna this dress at least a year ago and wanted to see a picture and we have no idea who it was but now it finally fits because it was for a GROWN UP WOMAN.
Supermodel.

Wonkette Baby Donna Rose with her grandpa, who passed this week.
And goddammit, Donna Rose with her dear Papa Mark. Fucking goddamn bullshit 2016.

There are a million more, because we’re old parents with cameras and computers RIGHT THERE IN OUR PHONES THAT LIVE IN OUR POCKETS, WHATTTT???! But we think that should hold you today.

Now go hold each other, please, even if your arms are just pixels. They can’t get all of us if we hold on really tight.

    Cute pix! DR is our future, once the fallout settles and the world rights itself from the Rancid Yam. Happy nice time to her and the other kidlins we’re leaving this mess to- sorry kids, most of us didn’t want to do this either.

    • Seek

      I’m investing all my money in Brawndo and calling it done.

    • Jukesgrrl

      I’m borrowing Rancid Yam. As Becca says, try and stop me.

  • Yr. Gma

    The picture with Papa Mark is priceless.

  • An Outhouse for the Resistance

    The lion-zebra walks away because she has no fucks to give. They are all adorable but the best is with grandpa. Thank you and Happy New Year. It won’t be as bad as everyone thinks.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Hope you’re right! Cheers.

    One of the few positives about 2016! Wonkette baby!

  • Ali | A Grumpy Cat

    Thank you to all of you for keeping this site running, and for all the comments that nobody leaves since we’re not allowed.

    • Rick Hill

      Ali! How are you doing? I haven’t seen you around a bit, hoping you are making it through these rotten times and doing well.

      • Ali | A Grumpy Cat

        I’m okayish. Haven’t been able to do much more than lurk; am stressed out like whoa. But thank you for asking. :)

        • Rick Hill

          I just saw your reply. Glad to hear your okay of sorts. I hope we don’t have to worry about anyone not stopping by because they’ve been disappeared. (Bad joke? Bad joke.)
          My own way of dealing with stuff is worrying about it, sleeping and then not worrying because it must not have been that bad if I still woke up. Sort of. There’ve been a lot of things that have been stressful the last five years or so. I just put things on the back burner, so to speak and keep going. It helps venting around Wonketerria, helps me think out the issues and such.
          Take care.

  • Lizzietish81

    We have now been together for over 10 months, it blows my mind. And in case you are one of three people who didn’t know this, we met via Wonkette at the New York City drinkie thing, the night Justice Scalia went to hell.

      Rule Number Four: ….but there’s always hope.

    • There are regulars who don’t know? They must have better hiding rocks than me

      • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

        Yes, but you have a fancy hiding rock.

        • I have a Canadian hiding rock

          • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

            You may need to look at additional rocks, if’n there’s a wave of Wonky refugees headed over the border.

    • Tallmutha

      I remember that, it was one freezing-ass night.

      • Tallmutha

        Rebecca told me I “looked beautiful” but didn’t kiss me. 😐

        • Suttree

          I got kisses and hugs!

          • Tallmutha

            We know! Meanwhile, what about Rebecca?

        • Jukesgrrl

          You were too tall?

      • Suttree

        It was in the teens without windchill, during the sunlight hours that day.

    • Suttree

      Lizzie is the best thing to happen to me. I have some tasty food in the oven for her right now, and we are going to spend the evening together without pants.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Awww. Another thing to bring tears to my eyes. Have a great new year, you two, with or without pants.

    Wonkette Babby has already met more famous and cool people than I ever will. But someday I will meet Wonkette Babby, and I will be cool by association. This gives me something to look forward to in 2017. Happy New Year, Wonkers!

  • nightmoth

    Thank you, Rebecca, Shy, Dok, and all you wonkers for being yourselves this year.
    Also, Papa Mark looks sweet and smart and I’m sorry for your loss, and for all of you who are missing your beloveds this New Years Eve. May 2017 be full of pleasant surprises and renewed strength for all of us.

  • Doug Langley

    What gorgeous pix! Let’s see, is there anything I can post that’s as interesting? Hmm . . . how about this? It’s a kid show, and the kiddies won’t get the jokes, but I bet the dirty minded Wonketeers will find them:

    You gave each other succor.

    Succor? I hardly knew her.

    • FukuiSanYesOta

      Oh, *I* did.

    • Jennifer R

      Just because I put out on the first night doesn’t mean I am easy.

  • FukuiSanYesOta

    Awesome babby pics!

    Also, that’s a great picture of Dok with the Snow Queen.

    • Resistance Fighter Big Puppy

      Totally agree.

    • Jukesgrrl

      I feel like you’re another one of my long-term pals here. So special wishes for an improved new year (I’m beyond imagining “happy”).

  • Yr. Gma

    Here’s hoping 2017 is the year the Orange Fuck is inpeached! Or that it’s the year he decides to emulate Gov. McQuitterFace herself. Or he enters therapy. Okay, maybe one of those is possible.

    • sw19womble

      My money is on debilitating stroke/poisoning by Putin/one of his own kids.

      • Jukesgrrl

        I’ve imagined the first one several times already but those next two show some real thought. Up fist.

      • Yr. Gma

        I had another idea along those lines except then I remembered the Ru;es for Radicals.

    • Suttree

      Haha! We almost watched the original Westworld last night, but I watched it at home a few days ago.

      • I’ve been looking for that one for a while. I’ve found Futureworld, the sequel that was (somehow) even worse. . . .

  • Shoto

    Thanks to Ms. Donna Rose, Ms. Editrix, Mr. Shy Pixel, Mr. Hurst, Dok Z., Robin, and all of the Wonketarians. What a cool bunch.

      “Stop having sex with bad people” should definitely be one of mine.

      • Can i have sex occasionally? At this point i will settle for bad people that are good in the sack

        • Jennifer R

          Sex is fantastic, make some fuck buddies IMO.

          • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

            Sex is fantastic. I do miss it terribly.

          • Me also too

          • Jennifer R

            The awful thing about moving to the west coast is everyone who was interested in sex with me is on the east coast.

          • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

            ….

            Whereabouts on the west coast?

          • Jennifer R

            Sacramento.

          • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

            Oh, wow. You’re like, a day trip away (I live in Reno).

          • Jennifer R

            I was in Sparks a couple years ago when my roommate took me to her dad’s place in Tahoe to help her watch it (smoke pot in the hot tub) while he was gone, and that is near Reno yeah? That would only be like 3-4 hours I think.

          • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

            Yeah, the two cities are right next to each other. I sometimes sneak over the hill for River Cats games or shopping at Arden Fair. It’s about 3 hours in good weather.

        • FukuiSanYesOta

          I’m a very bad person but can lay claim to being marginally adept in the sack. Does that count?

          • Jennifer R

            It seems to be you are the opposite of bad.

        • BloviateMe

          Hate sex has its merits.

          • Jennifer R

            Yeah but you can get the same effect by fucking a painslut!

          • BloviateMe

            I was actually alluding to masturbation, but sure!

          • TJ Barke

            What, dare I ask, is a painslut?

          • Jennifer R

            A masochist. Someone who finds pain erotic and sexually fulfilling.

            Alternatively: me.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            Like you a lot. You’re interesting.

          • Jennifer R

            You are pretty cool too, you know.

          • Suse

            I read that as “pantsuit”!

          • Reasonable!

          • BloviateMe

            LOL, thank the gods it wasn’t just me, I had to reread it a couple times.

          • sw19womble
          • Jennifer R

            I had a short OT on a different blog where I said I pictured all the other posters as “stodgy with things like pantsuits and security clearances” (several posters there have at least the clearance) and you reminded me of that.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            HEY!

            I’ve got (or at least had) a very high level security clearance, and am ….

            wait, I am a bit stodgy.

            NM

          • Jennifer R

            Somehow, I don’t see stodgy applying to you.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            Ok, now I’m going to be in my bunk. LOVE me some painsluts.

          • Jennifer R

            Ok well, I dunno if you have a fetlife but you should maybe pop over and look up the user EBT (no one else should because there aren’t any warnings past me telling you not to right now and I am not gonna apologize for me being me there).

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            Never, ever, apologize for being you.

          • Jennifer R

            Most people never properly learned that there are some things they don’t want to know is all.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            I’m open about it.

            I’ve found giving a fuck to be most assuredly overrated.

          • Jennifer R

            It’s a special kind of weird look, when people find out you filmed someone craving their name in to your body with a scalpel.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            You’re more extreme than I, but still people find it strange when I’ll talk about burn marks. Also, why that may be attractive to the participants.

          • Jennifer R

            I haven’t tried burning yet actually. It looks like it’s more intense than the scalpel really.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            Really? Branding is a thing and seems less extreme than cutting to me.

          • Jennifer R

            The thing with a surgical scalpel is that it’s super sharp, and thus isn’t so painful as a sensation that is still intense isn’t quite pain. That deep one on my back was actually the very first one the artist did (followed by a gulping noise and “Gee, wow, that is a lot of blood I hope you don’t change your mind and press charges.” and it didn’t really feel like anything at all.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            It’s super sharp (in a previous life I’ve seen surgery), but it’s still proper physical damage. I’m still conflicted about that.

            Sure, it may be less pain, but it’s still … permanent. Like a tat.

            edit: or branding. I should STFU

          • marxalot

            Scars fade. Eventually. The ones on my thigh are basically gone now, and it’s only been- what?- ten years? Eleven?

          • Jennifer R

            It might just be my body, but permanent isn’t really how most of it ended up. Out of the artist’s name only three of the lines have any color to them still and it’s only been two and a half years. The rope burn on my arm that a different friend gave me has had more long term results (at the right angle you can see the valley it left).

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            Crappy rope work? There’s no excuse for that.

          • Jennifer R

            No, her boyfriend went up to feed the dogs and she wanted to see if she could make me safe word before he got back. She did not, but was given a spanking for “damaging the guests”. I mean I was 100% fine with it and rather prize the mark it left even a decade later.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            This should not give me a boner but it does.

          • Jennifer R

            It was totally hot, it still gives me a bit of a boner thinking about it honestly. They were quite cool. Recently they moved in with their girlfriends and are going to start a family.

          • marxalot

            I’m just guessing that anyone on here who also has a fetlife profile a) is in no position to judge and b) is down with you being you.

          • Jennifer R

            You would be surprised about the silly fights that happen in the BDSM scene if you do something other people don’t like or think is “to extreme”. Safe Sane and Consensual ended up being a cudgel used to badger people who were in to fluids or breathplay or other “far out” things. If you really need a mnemonic to not rape people I suggest RACK Risk Aware Consensual Kink.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            First thing I say to women of a certain bent is “I’m not rapey”

            because I’m not

            HAS to be consensual.

          • Jennifer R

            Consensual is required. “consensual” can be negotiable in the right cases.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            Well, yes, but ground rules are strong when you’re a guy. I’m a very bad person, but I’m not a rapist or violent shithead. Some ladies like it, some don’t, and I get it. However, I’ll never do anything outside boundaries.

            It’s fucking important.

          • Jennifer R

            It really is. Boundaries and safe words are key to the whole thing. And the only time I have been raped it was a woman.

          • Jennifer R

            Oh and it’s not like my gallery is my *only* fetish I sort of put up what I happen to get photos of. Sadly no one took pictures of me being suspended from rafters (kind of by my genitals it turns out too!) or being paddled royal purple.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            Jenn, I think you and I may get on.

          • Jennifer R

            Ya know, maybe the world isn’t as fucked as it looks if this sort of topic gets to take place out in public now.

        • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

          Great, now I have that quandry in my head too.

      • Jennifer R

        The implied corrilary of have more sex with good people maybe should be explicit but in a way that isn’t insulting to our enby friends.

        • marxalot

          I’m non-binary and I have no sex with bad people and sex with nice people (person- she’s cool, I like her).

      • Tallmutha

        The problem with having sex with bad people is that then bad people get laid, which is neither fair nor just.

        • TJ Barke

          Exactly. I can think of numerous assholes that do not deserve to get laid.

          • sw19womble

            Hey, I didn’t want to anyway!

          • TJ Barke

            It’s alright, I fall into that category too.

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      I especially like the third one.

    • Courser

      I wrote a long thing about I need to greatly reduce my weed consumption. I really do. I don’t enjoy hacking up crap in the morning from it and I’m becoming a forgetful idjit. No bueno.

      But I’ve stopped using during the day and I get so fucking angry I don’t know what to do with myself.

      Okay, that’s a problem for another day.

      Thank you for your resolutions. They’re all excellent. Having sex with nice people in 2017 seems like a worthy goal ;-)

      • Jennifer R

        If you want to hack up less, move from smoking to a vaporizer?

    • sw19womble

      Any advice for a straight-edge ace?
      The list is kinda flimsy with me writing rude Post-its on top of a dumpster, whilst waiting for a stray alley cat to fall into my heffalump trap.

      • sw19womble

        Actually, that sounds like a plan…

      • Jennifer R

        Go to ace/enby meet ups? I guess that would be the equivalent of fucking good people.

        • sw19womble

          Hey I already agreed to going outside more. You want me to meet people too? Ewwww!
          Actually I got invited to a friend’s daughter’s 2nd birthday party next week. I said I might pop by for half an hour or so, but she appreciates that I am ultra-introvert (and proud) and there will be lots of new people there.
          But hey, what the fuck… okay you convinced me.

          • Jennifer R

            I 100% understand. I can’t leave the house without my headphones. Any gathering of more than 6 people is something I have to pass on, and my roommate yells at me (gently) about always looking “shell shocked” when we go grocery shopping. So I totally empathize with the outside bad thing.

          • sw19womble

            I went grocery shopping this evening, and had to interrupt a couple of people chatting next to an item I wanted: one of them immediately went “Oh, sorry!” as I sort of mumbled and shuffled close and made a hand movement to reach in between them.
            Then one of the ladies made some friendly jokey comment about “Oh it’s extra charge for those today” – which sort of threw me and I mumbled something “Oh that’s okay.” and hoped I didn’t have resting bastard face.
            Anyway, yeah, I wasn’t prepared for someone in London actually engaging in social chit-chat at the supermarket. I’m definitely getting out of practice….

          • Jennifer R

            Yeah people are so >.>

            I can usually make small talk with a cashier but other things through me for a loop. Life has been seeing how a reaction works and building a huge mental flow chart.

          • sw19womble

            Yeah, I’m not one for idle shit-chat. Been boring most people fucking stupid with electoral and political-economy stuff (this year has been ‘very interesting’) or else the soccerball team yay go Wombles!
            Those are my go-to topics…. only topics tbh.

          • Jennifer R

            I have a few safety topics myself, that work well enough in my own group but aren’t so great outside the more accepting enclaves (drugs, gender philosophy, old video games).

    • marxalot

      Legitimately the one thing I want and don’t know how to get here is hallucinogens. I’ve always gotten my hook up from friends! Friends who live in Texas, where I am not.
      Here’s mine, though: those, and also ride the rollercoasters a lot.

    • BosGrl

      At the risk of sounding like an old fart, please go easy on the drugs. Everyone please stay safe this year.

      • sw19womble

        Know your limit, play within it. :)

    • Vecchiojohn

      Hey, I’m nice! Really!

  • boredcatlady

    Aw, happy nice time stuff. Here’s hoping we make it through 2017 😊

  • Tallmutha

    New York Wonkerados should seize ourselves the means of production of Drinky Things, shouldn’t we?

    • TJ Barke

      Yep. We all should.

    • Suttree

      We are in Brooklyn at the moment. There has to be at least 20 of us. We don’t need the discrete charm of the bourgeoisie to accomplish this task!

    • Sedagive

      Just say the word.

  • Msgr_MΩment

    Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful person I’ve ever known in my life?
    That would be Donna Rose.
    Sorry, Dok. You had ONE job. ONE job.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Yeah, but he’s still cute. And ponies love him.

  • BloviateMe

    I’m beginning to suspect there are actual human beings behind these non-comments.

  • Bad Scooter

    Being able to watch the adventures of Donna Rose was one of the best things about a mostly suck-ass 2016, so thank you for sharing the babby pictures. To all at Wonkette, you have my gratitude for giving me news the way I like it: with journalistic integrity, dick jokes, and intelligent discussion in the comments that are not allowed. Much love to everyone and best wishes for happiness in 2017. ❤️ -B.S.

  • data_ninja

    I’m happy that I went to the Cleveland drinky thingy and met Evan and all the other Wonkeroos there. We should try to make it happen more often, if possible. Pixel people are fun, but real people are too!

    • What are real?

      • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

        I hear real involves pants and something called “sunshine”.

        • But….it burns!

          • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

            Get a shiny parasol, then.

          • data_ninja

            For some reason, I just noticed that parasol = para + sol = spanish equiv of ‘for sun’
            ***mind blown***

          • Jennifer R

            I too love Kirby.

          • JH Marx, Resister

            Thats right Gollum.

      • data_ninja

        It’s just a blanket term I use for anything that doesn’t communicate over an electronic network or get stored on disk space. You know, ‘things’.

        • Jukesgrrl

          Well, I guess we can still have “things” even thought the Trumpettes have declared that there is no longer any “truth,” just your opinion and my opinion.

  • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

    I’ve been not commenting on here since the Cox days. Think I’ll stick around for a few more years.

    • Vecchiojohn

      I’ve been commenting here since the days when Wonkette was a 15 minute radio show on the old Blue Network.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Who did you used to be? I’ve been here since Ana Marie, too. I’ve always been Jukesgrrl, although my avatar has changed.

      • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

        Back in the Ana Marie days, I was Pandy and had a panda bear as my avatar. I didn’t comment often back then.

  • Rick Hill

    Still a Bayubee? Shouldn’t that girl be in college or something by now?

  • Any Ontario Wonkers planning to go to the Solidarity march on the 21st in Toronto? Wanna meet up for dinner/drinky thing after? I gotta head home that night, but i could make it!

  • notaten

    Thank you to ALL Wonketters: Editrix, Shy, Dok, Evan, Robyn, and all Non-commenters, for being the island of truth and sanity during this very trying year. And for dick jokes also, and too. Oh, and also too, for teaching me things about sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll that I could probably never learn on my own. Thanks to you all for letting me know that I am not alone in believing that we have each other to lean on, in good times and bad, and that there are still some of us that believe we have to care for our neighbor as much as we care for ourselves. Wonkette restores my faith in humanity, at least enough so I know it’s OK to try to fight for what we know to be right. Oh, and I also love the pics of Wonkette Babby and Niece also, and too. On to the future!!!

    • BosGrl

      Perfect!

  • The Librarian

    Happy New Year to all! No words to say, but thanks and have a kitten*

    *a 16 year old kitten. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/61ceb15b4ad46f9f6aeef003bd8134dfa116efbe4d58416eb2ca684864bf36ae.jpg

    • Suttree

      Meow meow meow! *butt rubs*

      • Aren’t you supposed to be picking a movie?

        • sw19womble

          The Truth About Cats And Dogs?

        • Suttree

          I was supposed to. She picked some word Japanese movie that I have yet to see a kaiju in.

    • Tallmutha

      16-year-old kittens are the best kittens. Experience!

  • TJ Barke

    If only I had meatspace friends. I could theoretically be at a party tonight, and theoretically get laid…

    • I am hanging out with my mom and her boyfriend. We just played a rousing game of Scrabble

      • Tallmutha

        Whoa whoa whoa there, Pickwick, better pace yourself!

      • WomanInTheResistance

        My family plays Scrabble at every holiday. Last Christmas, my mother played “fuqu” to go out. That is now a sanctioned word in the Resistance family.

    • Jennifer R

      I am by myself, drunk off a hard cider. Life could be worse!

      Alternatively: Come hang out with me!

      • TJ Barke

        Could also be better.

        • sw19womble

          But also worse.

          • TJ Barke

            Or plausibly better.

          • Jennifer R

            You are probably on the wrong side of the country aren’t you?

          • TJ Barke

            At any right I’m probably too far away to get to where you are prior to 1/1/17

          • Jennifer R

            That’s a shame, you are cute. and you seem innocent and that is a combination I am partial to.

          • CindyinEncinitas

            Omg yes.

          • Jennifer R

            I may not so secretly enjoy removing innocence.

          • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

            I am somehow not shocked by this. I don’t know why…

          • Jennifer R

            West coast best coast?

          • TJ Barke

            Yeah.

          • Jennifer R

            You are in like bakersfield I think? That would be a long Caltrain ride.

          • TJ Barke

            Not in California.

      • WomanInTheResistance

        We Are! *cracks open a bottle of bubbly*

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      This end of the woods getting laid isn’t even a theory.

    • Zippy W Pinhead

      I’m at work- just like every New Years Eve

      • TJ Barke

        Sounds better than sitting around with nothing/no one to do.

        • Zippy W Pinhead

          At least I get paid.

          • TJ Barke

            Exactly.

      • CindyinEncinitas

        Who’s playing? Anybody I know know?

        • Zippy W Pinhead

          A bunch of smooth jazz peeps like Rick Braun and the old R&B singer Jeffrey Osborne. Pretty boring, all in all (crowd loves them, which is what counts)

          • CindyinEncinitas

            I have actually walked out of a couple of those concerts. They are boring to me, even if I like a couple of the songs. Oh well. It’s a living…

      • Jukesgrrl

        Prospero ano nuevo, mi amigo.

        • Zippy W Pinhead

          ¡y usted también!

        Suicide Hotline?

        • Zippy W Pinhead

          close…

    • WomanInTheResistance

      On the 14th of January, many of us will become your meatspace friends. You are coming, right?

      • TJ Barke

        Hopefully.

        • WomanInTheResistance

          That is not a yes. TJ, I have a Subaru and a cranky, yet loving personality. I will ask this again. You are coming, right? Because I will haul the damn Subaru to Gold Beach. In a very speedy manner because I learned how to drive from my mom.

          • sw19womble

            Don’t make her come get you!

      • marxalot

        Wait, what’s going down and where?

        • WomanInTheResistance

          Meet-up in Eugene, Ore. Kiri and Sister Artemis have the details.

          • marxalot

            Rats. A little too far for my blood.

          • sw19womble

            Not out west till mid-Feb, stupid cat-sitting duties….

          • WomanInTheResistance

            Well if you should pass through Portland in February , I would be delighted to buy you a bevvie of your choice.

          • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

            Hmm…I *could* do it if I watch my nickels and dimes the next week or so.

      • puredog

        I am sore tempted to drive down to Eugene from Portland. Only the probably inevitable DUII on the way back stays my hand.

        • WomanInTheResistance

          I actually just booked a motel room. Because I5.

        • Historicat

          I drove three hours to go to the drinkything in Austin and I dragged my wife and three kids along with me.

          I regret nothing. Well, except that I didn’t put fresh batteries in the camera.

  • marxalot

    The last night of 2015, the year in which my house burned down, I got together with friends and we said that 2016 would be the the year we got our lives together: finish degrees, get back in school, get better jobs, do the things we needed to do.
    This year, I got my master’s, did a bunch of therapy, started a new relationship, spent time with my family, hung out with my friends, got a Real Job, started T, and basically watched my whole life come together even as it felt like the world was falling apart.
    And read a lot of dick jokes with the Wonkeratti.

  • Shibusa
    • MΩebym

      Speaking of which, I put one of my new eos lip balms through the washer not long ago.

    Love you Rebecca! Happy 2017. I know this is going to be a better year for all of us.

    • Tallmutha

      Can I have some of what you’re smoking?

      Signed, Mr. Badvibes.

          Aw, I’m sorry.

            Hugs back. You are also going to have a better year this year.

        • CindyinEncinitas

          I wish you were closer. I’d give you a big hug. But have one of these. (((Hug)))

    Well, heading home so to all a ya, Happy Screw You! and to all a good night. Or is screw you next year? I get these things missed up…

  • Painter of Goats

    Next time you give me succor remember I don’t like the root beer ones. Prospero año nuevo, y’all.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    I’m making myself do a little early spring cleaning so I’ll be in and out until later tonight, but just so I don’t miss anyone:

    It’s hard to say happy new year, so here’s to a successful resurgence in the new year. Or as KO would say:

    Resist! Peace.

    • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

      We’ll make it Cally. We gotta.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alg0GyRFNLI

    • Zippy W Pinhead

      Screw that, I’m gong to have a happy new year despite the idjits. Hopefully you will too

    • CindyinEncinitas

      Love you, girl! Stay focused. Stay awesome! Have a bitchen summer!

    • Jukesgrrl

      Seriously, you were a big part of my year. I was always checking your posts which I could do in real time since I’m almost in your timezone and stay up late. I felt sorrier for you on election day than anyone because I knew how hard you worked with no reward save our gratitude. One tiny consolation: At least we can celebrate that we got a Stanley Cup this year AND the Steelers are Bad Ass Kings of the North. Onward and upward, Friend.

  • Resistance Fighter Big Puppy

    Thank you, Rebecca.

    How did all that dust get in my eyes?

    • sw19womble

      I dunno. The nuclear fallout is next year.

  • Shibusa
  • Nounverb911

    Nice pictures, meeting Donna Rose in Seattle was one of the highlights of my summer? fall? whenever you were here.

  • Martini Ambassador

    It just turned 2017 here in the Frenchy part of the world. Très bonne année Wonkettes!

      Vous etes tres gentile (is that right?). Merci beaucoup. Happy 2017!

      • CindyinEncinitas

        What she said…

      • Martini Ambassador

        Sacré bleu! Them Cannuks talk funny. But they win the sexy PM contest.

          I am semi-fluent in French (Parisian French), but when I visited Montreal, I thought: “What are these people SAYING?” Written word went fine, though.

  • WomanInTheResistance

    I just got back from errands, and saw this. DR with grandpa Mark dissolved me. May I say how much I like you all? Even love you all? Finding this vile, nasty snark mob kept my damned sanity this year. You are a lovely group of people. All of whom deserve good things in life. Thank you all for letting me be a part of this.

    • Jonny On Maui

      Thank you WomanInTheResistance. You said it perfect. I’d have lost what remains of my mind if it wasn’t for this place.

      • WomanInTheResistance

        Jonny, you are one of the (many) reasons I like it here so much. I love you, and all that you do for us.

        • Jonny On Maui

          Thank you WomanInTheResistance. I do love the family we have here.

    • TheBoatDude

      Is it already New Years in Seattle? I guess it hasn’t made it down to CA, yet…

  • Liberalia

    Donna Rose was the best part of 2016

  • TJ Barke

    New thread up, about Justin Trudeaux, as if my feelings of inadequacy weren’t bad enough already.

    • sw19womble

      Hey, there’s only one Justin Trudeau! ;p

      • TJ Barke

        Around here it’s Trudeauxxx.

        • sw19womble

          He’s very toothsome.

          • TJ Barke

            The ladies all think of him for their sexy times.

          • Vagenda and Tiara

            Not me! I’m thinking of Kristin Stewart and Stella Maxwell.

          • TJ Barke

            All the hetero ladies, then.

          • Vagenda and Tiara

            Fine! Be that way…

            Just kidding, happy New Year’s Eve!!!!

          • TJ Barke

            I don’t know how women work! God!

          • WomanInTheResistance

            Neither do I! And I am one!

          • TJ Barke

            This is more of a problem for me.

          • WomanInTheResistance

            I can’t see how. And TJ, you are smart. You are funny. You are cute as hell -don’t even trying to deny that, I’ve seen pictures.

            You want to know how women work? We work like people. Cute, funny, smart folks who have basic manners tend to charm us. Just be you, for heavens sake.

          • TJ Barke

            Just me assumes that girls/women/whatever want nothing to do with me. And so far, the real world evidence supports this conclusion.

          • WomanInTheResistance

            Look, I get feeling insecure. Get that. But it drives me a little crazy to see somebody who has so much to offer not even try. Has it not occurred to you that women are people? With all of the issues that implies? We’re not some giant lump of undifferentiated humanity. Women can be nice, or jerks, or smart or dim, or what have you. Please stop with this assumption that all women are the same. Just stop.

          • TJ Barke

            I’m not making assumptions, just going by experience.

          • WomanInTheResistance

            And I call bullshit on that. I don’t know your experiences, but to assume that every female person is the same as ones you’ve known before? Bullshit, my friend.

          • TJ Barke

            It doesn’t matter.

          • WomanInTheResistance

            It does matter. For real.

          • Vagenda and Tiara

            Sigh…neither do I, and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to figure them out.

          • TJ Barke

            Something tells me that you’re still way ahead.

      • Unpresidented Ron

        And he’s OURS.

  • Jennifer R

    Being a sex positive trans woman puts a whole new spin on “smoke trees, take E, fuck bitches”.

    • FukuiSanYesOta

      This lady knows her shit. We can have a conversation about BDSM and have fun.

      This, in a nutshell, is why I love this Wonkette place.

    • Scrofula

      How did you know my imaginary plans for tonight?

      • Jennifer R

        I am precognitive. Unless you are partying at my place, then maybe it’s your actual plans~

  • Sedagive

    Yeah, well – I’m not a joiner, but I’m so glad that I stopped my long-time lurking here, ponied up and started posting (even though it’s not allowed). Best decision of 2016!

    Rebecca, crew, and fellow (non)commenters: you’ve helped keep me sane and giggling, and for that I thank you from the heart of my bottom.

    See you on the other side…

    • BosGrl

      I love your name. Happy 2017.

      • Sedagive

        Thanks! So sad that we lost Gene Wilder (and so many others) this year.

        More sedatives for everyone in 2017.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Happy to have you. All the best to you in these hard times.

      • Sedagive

        We’ll get through it together (although we might not be laughing quite so much).

        • Unpresidented Ron

          Not me. I intend to laugh longer and harder than ever, cuz it’s the one thing They cannot STAND.

  • Jeffocaster in the East

    A Limerick

    To all of my Wonkette online friends
    You’re better than a pair of Depends
    You’re there in the night
    To keep me from fright
    Got a can of clams you can lends?

    • TJ Barke

      Monster…

      • Vagenda and Tiara

        “Canned clams? Bitch…please!”

        I still want that on a t-shirt.

    • tehbaddr

      I was just at the grocer, looked at the canned chopped clams, and passed them by, had I known…

  • Thank you Wonkers and Wonkette staff for helping bend the curve toward justice with a smile.

    And because of the time I spent on Wonkette this year I’ve worked 10 hours less each week, and I get paid by the hour.

    Oh wait….

  • Up In Smoke O’hontas

    Goodbye 2016! Looking forward to keeping the good (D.R.) and flushing the bad (almost everything else)!
    Onward, y’all! We’ve been through this much, why stop now?
    Love to all you depraved resistance fighters! You got me through these sick times. May we all enjoy many more years of depravity!

    • Vagenda and Tiara

      Hopefully Dear Leader will allow us to keep Wonkette, Donna Rose, and our radical left wing ideas about love, kindness, compassion, and understanding, for ALL people, regardless of race, creed, religion, sexuality, etc…

      • Pierre_de_Fermat

        Well, since we’re apparently “enemies” of Dear Leader, you never know …

        • Celtic_Gnome

          Yeah, that really bummed me out.

          And 2016 was going so well until then.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Happy 2017, Wonkers — and I hope we’ve all learned our lesson and vow to be more understanding of the oppressed white males, neo-colonialists and retrograde morons for whom the world is becoming equal far too fast.

    Haha — but seriously — in the immortal words of Hunter S Thompson, don’t take any guff from those swine. Let’s stay strong and make this a better country and a safer world for everybody.

    • Fuck those fucking nazi swine!

  • Pierre_de_Fermat

    Thankyou for sharing Donna Rose with us through the pictures. They were all great. That last, with her grandpa, was so very touching.
    Thankyou again.

    • Jukesgrrl

      Yes, that brought tears to my eyes and made me think of my own long-gone Dad and Grandpap, both of whom gave me the kind of love kids need. Thanks from me, too, for sharing Donna Rose. I’m really enjoying watching her grow and learn.

  • tehbaddr

    Yes, all the best to my fellow Wonkers in the New Year, stay vigilant and sane!

    Wonkette – the best site on the web
    Rachel gave it a large dose of cred
    To Rebecca and Dok
    Evan, Robyn all rock
    We love them it goes without said.

    Hey, DR, what you eating? Fried chicken and biscuits at Hominy Grill? YUMMM. This was back when you were still a babby, and you thought grits were greeeaaat! You were like a miniature Tony the Tiger.

    The picture of DR in the lion costume is why I signed up for subscription…

    • WomanInTheResistance

      I admire people with taste.

    • FukuiSanYesOta

      Personally, I signed up when the money was tight. Little DR is super cute though.

      • TheBoatDude

        That’s about the same time I signed up, as well…

  • MΩebym

    Have fun, but more importantly, stay safe. We’ll be needing each other these next few years.

  • Vagenda and Tiara

    Guess which teenage girl/president elect sent this tweet this AM?

    “Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!”

    • BosGrl

      I just LOLd at that. I mean, what else can you do?

      • Vagenda and Tiara

        It makes the job of a satirist that much harder. How can you compete with that nonsense? I never thought I’d see a teenage girl, albeit one trapped in a 70 year old man’s body, get elected POTUS.

    • Mr. Blobfish

      Classy. What a jackass.

      • Jukesgrrl

        I think that’s beyond jackass and closer to sickfuck territory. He doesn’t know the meaning of the word love.

        • Unpresidented Ron

          Not true. He loves himself with a pure, white-hot intensity.

    • theCryptofishist

      Miley Cyrus?

      • Vagenda and Tiara

        Nope, she’s grown out of tweets that juvenile. Also, Miley gets to bang Liam Hemsworth AND Stella Maxwell. She’s not a pathetic, weak loser, like some other sad orange man I can think of who cheats on his pregnant wife.

        • theCryptofishist

          I was being deliberately obtuse. We all know it’s really Hitler.

      • kareemachan

        Brisket Paylin?

    • Celtic_Gnome

      You just know all the sycophants he keeps around himself in Trump Tower giggled and said, “Good one, boss.”

      • Vagenda and Tiara

        I just saw him on the news saying “we have to make sure Russia was behind the hacking. I know a LOT about hacking.” Is there any subject he’s NOT an expert on?

        • Celtic_Gnome

          Humility?

          Probably not. He’d be, “I’m the most humble person in the world. I’m the greatest at being humble.”

  • Scrofula

    While we’re all having a tearful circle jerk, I call upon East Coast wonkers to herald the end times for those of us on PST that have to wait three more hours for the slowly rolling fireball of frog memes and orangutan shit to reach and consume us.

    Johhny on Maui, I don’t even know what time that is. You should be safe, fucker, what with your island paradise of tweakers and bounty hunters.

    • theCryptofishist

      I think Hawai’i’s +2 from Pacific Time.

    • Pierre_de_Fermat

      Isn’t there the mysterious and possibly theoretical “Mountain Time” to consider?

      • Scrofula

        Yeah, but that only gets me an hour to prep whichever bunker I’ll need.

  • CindyinEncinitas

    Here’s the audacity of hope for you. I put my bottle of champagne in the refrigerator! I’m going to believe I can lure someone back to my place to help me drink it! Wish me luck! And Happy New Year Wonkarinos. Bless us every one!

    • CindyinEncinitas

      Oh and Blarney, if I do get lucky, it meant nothing. For our love is pure and sacred. Swear.

      • TJ Barke

        As long as you’re thinking of Blarney during…

        • CindyinEncinitas

          Always. No matter who or what might have captivated my attention…

    • FukuiSanYesOta

      All the luck, Cindy!!!

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      Shit…it’s an 8 hour drive. How long you gonna be up?

      • CindyinEncinitas

        Til you get here, hot stuff.

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          Yeah, I’m thinking if you get a better offer in the meantime, you best take it. Would be better for you on any number of levels. But don’t think I wasn’t tempted!

          • CindyinEncinitas

            I had a lovely time yesterday with a runner up and I hope you did, too.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Ha! I knew you could do it! My runner-up that night was a scared dog. She was very grateful for my presence.

          • CindyinEncinitas

            I’m grateful you made that choice. You’re a solid homie.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Why, thank you..that’s a nice thing to say. I have my good and bad points….loyalty is one of my good ones. Hope the good times continue for you in this new year. You deserve it.

    • I’m here in the Blue Ridge Mtn’s with my own memories of Encinitas, Leucadia, Del Mar, PB, Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, etc.

      In real winter this is what happens to me and I’m warmer for it.

      Happy New Year Cindy iE.

      • Resisting the Urge – Holly

        I’m late…as usual…Where are you in those Blue Ridge Mtn’s? I’m from Rabun County in North Georgia.

        • I’m up in Watauga County, NC, NW corner of the state. I did a fine project down in Blue Ridge, GA a year back or so. Lovely country you got down there!

          • Resisting the Urge – Holly

            Your corner ain’t too bad either. Boone and Blowing Rock are gorgeous. I’ve spent a few hours falling down on Sugar and Beech mountains.

          • Paul

            Well dear, if you weren’t so fucking drunk all the time perhaps you could remain upright.

          • Resisting the Urge – Holly

            Really my love? What exactly are you insinuating?

          • Paul

            Oh shit…when did you learn to read?

  • kareemachan

    This year has been mostly lousy, and I’m ending it with a bug that besides the usual horrible symptoms has given me vertigo.

    BUT I discovered Wonkette this year!!!!! And even better, at the last moment (her surgery was scheduled), the Humira kicked in and my kid won’t have to have a major operation!!!!!

    The downside is that Humira costs A LOT. But she’s applying to the pharma’s benevolent society for a reduced rate.

    The upside to this is that I’ve now seen Chicago, and LOVE CTA.

    Then I returned to my car at the airport and the battery was dead.

    But we have AAA.

    Definitely an up-and-down year.

    Best of 2017 to everyone.

    • BosGrl

      Happy New Year kareemachan!

    • Jukesgrrl

      Best wishes to you and your daughter for 2017 being more up and less down.

  • alwayspunkindrublic

    What reeducation camp y’all headed off to for the next 4 years? I think I’m slated for Camp Arpaio, famous for pink underwear and green bologna sandwiches for lunch. Think we can keep Wonkette going from prison?

    • WomanInTheResistance

      We are rather chatty. Once we get the hang of Morse code, we’ll be good to go. Without so many gifs and links of course.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        I’m thinking we can communicate initially by tapping in code on the plumbing pipes. Which is assuming Camp Arpaio will have plumbing…exceedingly unlikely, now that I think of it.

        • WomanInTheResistance

          But I do love your sunny optimism.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            You’re the only person in my entire life who has ever said that to me. And I know you’re just being snarky….

          • WomanInTheResistance

            I am snarky with a heart full of love. It’s a most peculiar sensation.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            You are. It’s a common oddity ’round here. No matter how much so many folks here might try to hide it, the inner decency always shines through.

        • theCryptofishist

          ON the other hand, do you really think your good sheriff has read Darkness at Noon?

    • Jukesgrrl

      I live in Arizona. I’m already there.

      • nightmoth

        I’m in rural Georgia: I’m there, too, except for occasional forays into Athens and daily scavenging at Wonkette.

        • Pierre_de_Fermat

          Kinda the same here, but the trips to Athens are more than occasional. So there’s that.

  • SeeTrain65

    Forget Andy Richter … best episode of “Memba This?” this year.

  • Doug Langley

    Happy New Years to all my Wonkette friends. We need to celebrate! Let’s see, how about this:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W55b4BcCPM4

  • Jukesgrrl

    The photo of Donna Rose giving us the side-eye while being held by Morning Mika says it all.

    • roberteye

      I hope she had her cooties vaccination (eff off Jenny McCarthy)

  • Mr. Blobfish

    Happy New Year everybody. Be safe. A friend is out of town and gave us the key to his place on 13th St. We’re going to a French restaurant on Avenue B then wander around NYC.

    • BosGrl

      Have fun. You and Mrs. Blobfish be safe too!

    • tehbaddr

      Alphabet city is so safe now! If you want some authentic Polish fair go to The Odessa on A tween 8th ad 9th. Lucy’s is also there, have a pepper shot with Lucy! Enjoy your night out!

      • Mr. Blobfish

        Strolled by the Odessa last night. Haven’t tried it yet. I’m Polish on my mom’s side and her mom was a great cook. Her cherry peirogies where out of this world. My mom didn’t inherit the cooking gene. Craziest thing I saw back in the early 80s was a guy coming down 7th Street on a motorcycle, someone runs out with a bat and clotheslines him off the bike and steals it. Good times.

  • CindyinEncinitas
  • Happy New year y’all!
    Thank you Wonkette, et al, and all you Wonkers for being you and being here

        Sssshhhhh! Fox hasn’t figured that one out yet. And kudos for Andy Kaufmann.

  • roberteye

    Happy ’17 to Donna Rose, to those people what birthed her, to Doc, Evan, Robyn and all the good people who chime in here and make it all OK, even amidst a Trump coup, if nothing else by having a larf (as Ricky Gervais might say). The love here is so thick you could cut it with a harakiri tantō (which I have ready just in case Orange dumshitte trips and falls carrying the nuclear football). As some libtard said, we stick together, we win.

  • dslindc

    Good job, Babby (pity she couldn’t talk more sense into those Joe of the Morning folks), and thank you for another year, Wonkette!

  • Unpresidented Ron

    Thanks, boss. I (WE) really needed that.

  • Johnatx

    Happy New Years to all. Thank you to the Editrix, the writers and the folks that make comments (that are not allowed.) Also too, to the beautiful Donna Rose.

  • Karen Marie

    Best wishes for a happy, healthy New Year to all the Wonketteers. I don’t know what I would do without you kids.

    Happy New Year and Thank You Wonkette and the banned commentariate. You have helped to preserve my sanity and any hope there is decency left in the world. Ironic that comes from such a bunch of nasty, vile pervs. Party up see you in 2017

    • Grumpy contrarian

      As a fellow nasty, vile perv, I’m glad that we all have a home here together. It’s just a shame that I have to come to a snarky mommyblog full of dick jokes to get an intelligent take on the news. At least you guys watch the showz on the tubez so I don’t have to, and thank you SO MUCH for that.

  • Rotisserie Teal

    It helped so much to have this site this year. Thank you all.

    We move forward and we fight on. Also there is some drinking too also.

  • Sister Artemis

    Thanks, Wonkette! Sure, lots of rotten stuff happened in this last year, but not everything (I got to see my Hillary really shine, even if she didn’t win). And one THE REALLY REALLY GOOD THINGS was being here with all of you, wonkastaff, wonketarians, and babbies who surreptitiously get their moms and friends to post awesome pics. And the drinkey thing in September when wonderful wonkers gathered for food and drink and talk and sun and roses, and our party was crashed by CELEBRITIES (no, it wasn’t John Boehner). And all of it really, including an election night rant from a certain Editrix that helped me get through it all.

    So thanks. And have a goddammed Happy New Year!

    • freakishlystrong

      She did win, Sister, she was ratfucked.

  • Wee Mousie

    Speaking of children and parents, I promised my mother that I would do something cultural every year, so here is my 2016 cultural offering:

    Twas the Morning of New Year’s

    Twas the morning of New Year’s, and all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring, not teetotaller, nor souse.
    The family was hung –their heads buzzing like hives,
    Having had so much drink, they felt barely alive.

    The children were nestled all smug in their bunks,
    While the grownups had partied, then passed out like drunks.
    While mamma, on her knees of the bathroom floor tiles
    Casting up her accounts, smelled excessively vile.

    I’d drowned in the stew of the sheets on my bed,
    While still garbed in the clothes I was too drunk to shed.
    My room too was fouled by a rank smelling spoor —
    I’d thrown up in my mouth, and also on the floor.

    While out on the lawn there were bottles and splatter —
    The dew reeked of booze, and the bottles were shattered.
    Also to the east, the sun’s bright baleful glare
    Forced its way passed the blnds of our foul-smelling lair.

    When the sun reached its zenith in the sky overhead
    Someone knocked on our door with a fist made of lead.
    They knocked on our door, and they jangled our chimes,
    Till my head hurt so much, I could not think of rhymes.

    While that motherless driver leaned hard on the horn,
    His friend hammered and rang, as my migraine was born
    My wife, just as I, thought this no peccadillo,
    As she grunted and cursed, while her teeth tore her pillow.

    Till finally they went, with a grinding or gears,
    And a squealing of tires, those loud cavaliers.
    But I heard him shout out, this dread epilogue,
    “We left pork sausage pizza, but no hair of the dog.”

    Wee Mousie, 2016

    That screen grab of Wonkette Babby in Mika’s arms is perfect; she’s looking right at us as if to say, “I know, right? I hate Morning Joe too”. Super pics, all of them.

    Happy New Year to all Wonkette and all the Wonketeers. Fingers crossed and chin up for 2017. Maybe this will be the year Wonkette finally allows comments. XO!

  • freakishlystrong

    Thank you for these, I’ve not smiled yet in the new year, and just did. Big, pixel, virtual hug, my lovely pretend internet friends!

    “Hello babies (and Wonkette non-baby friends). Welcome to Earth 2017. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter (for now, till anthropogenic climate change deranges all that). It’s round and wet (for now) and crowded. On the outside, babies, you’ve got a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies-“God damn it, you’ve got to be kind (and no comments allowed; wait, that’s two rules).”

    Boy howdy, that 2016 was sumpin’ wannit! Let’s do it again real fucking soon never!

  • Cock Blockula

    I do not hold great hopes for 2017, but the fact that you all are here, not commenting on this mommyblog, recipe hub, snark compendium, and virtual support therapy session, makes the idea of the coming year much less bleak. I had been a lurker for many years (since the Ana Marie and Ken Layne days), surreptitiously reading at work, laughing myself into tears over the wit of the articles and subsequent non-comments, having a sadz when you were hurting, learning lots of FACTZ, and actually trying some of the recipes (the morning after Stuffing Strata is THE BOMB!). A few months ago, I bravely put my fingers to the keyboard, created a Discus profile, and began being a part of this vile little snark mob. Never looking back. Nope.

    Hoping all the best in 2017 for all you alls, Vive la Résistance, and Allons Y!

  • Unpresidented_in_Seattle

    Happy 2017 everybody, fucking finally. It’s going to be much better than 2016, right? I would say it couldn’t possibly be any worse, but that would be like saying “at least it’s not raining”.

    By the gods, Donna Rose is adorable. I love how she rocks the Jackie O look with those sunglasses.

    Oh, sweet Donna Rose. I had the pleasure of meeting her at the drinky thingy in Detroit. It was wonderful. And I have enjoyed Wonkette and throw monies when I can. Make it Rain for Wonkette in 2017!
