Actually, C-Span would be alot more interesting if all politcians started acting like wrestlers.

The pro wrestling company is the WWE.

The wildlife preservation organization is the WWF.

How do you actually go about "stomping a mud hole" into someone's ass? I mean, you'd have to get the hole out of the ground, and then place it on the person, and then push it in with your foot with a quick thrust, right?

Well, a hole is the absence of whatever was there, basically nothing. How can you pick up nothing and then do something destructive with it? That makes no sense whatever! And a mudhole isn't really a HOLE. It's more of an impression in the dirt.

The mudhole quandry has puzzled many for ages. Let me try to explain. There may actually be no mud at all...however, it is the hole that is important. You stomp the hole....then name it a mudhole. However, it could contain any number of things.

Corn, for instance, which is where the term cornhole comes from.

Jeez, you people are going comic book guy on the submitter over WWF.

I still call it the WWF. It was the WWF for 20, 30 years? Fark the WWE. Vince should have stomped a mudhole in them hippies that made them change the name.

You can say "the WWF" all you want, that's still its name in most people's minds, just saying "the WWE" sets my teeth on edge...sound it out, THE World Wrestling Entertainment doesn't make sense! Grrrr!

Didn't The Onion have an article a while back where McMahon sent up X-SPAN after the XFL's failure, with X-TREME lawmaking?

johnnowak: Who the fark cares? It's still farking idiotic either way.

I don't much care for either, I just hate people who rush in and post some meaningless correction to the headline that 10 people have already posted before. Especially when, as in this case, it's been posted right at the beginning of the friggin' thread. That's all.

Pro Wrestlers would probably show more class.

Hell yeah it was! MUCH better than the shait we get from the WWE and TNA these days! I have to watch Galavision's Lucha Libre programs to see good wrestling these days! VIVA LOS LUCHADORES!

Yes, it's true; the World Wildlife Fund took those three letters for themselves.

To be fair, they did it by the rules. It was a heavyweight cage-match, between the leading stars of both WWFs.

As expected, the Wrestling WWF cheated. The wrestler used a folding chair very early in the match.

However, the Wildlife WWF had its own dirty trick; since Pandas are so rare, their fighter was actually a Grizzly Bear spray-painted like a Panda. If you know anything about Grizzly Bears, you know that being spray-painted to look like Pandas is one of their pet-peeves.

I'll leave the details of the match to your imagination. Ill just mention that the wrestler's attempts at shielding his vital organs from the Grizzly-Panda's trademark "Maul Then Eat" finishing move were unsuccessful.

I'm looking forward to Shawn Michaels and Kurt Angle tonight, definitely has the potential to be a classic.

Oh, and Angle needs to bring back the three "I's."
2005-04-03 10:59:40 AM  
I think the ladder match also has the potential to be a classic. Big question is will HHH do the right thing and pass the torch on over to Batista.

/huge Batista fan

At a meeting, Martin had continued speaking after her colleagues had ruled her out of order, and subsequently Martin angrily told Wheeler, ''I'm going to stomp a mud hole in your ass.''

Wish I was there to witness that one.
2005-04-03 11:32:11 AM  
jasonbondshow - check out ROH if you can. I've been to three shows live and been following it since last year - almost every show is gold.

If you saw the Hall of Fame show last night Batista was sitting in the back with JBL, while Cena and HHH where in the first row. Take that how you want to. By the way - what was Cena wearing anyways?
