I want to put crustaceans in Jim Gaffigan's bed ala the Godfather.

King really let some of these assholes have it in the Senate hearings on various things over the past year. If he wants to celebrate his damn lobster emoji, that's more than fine with me. He's doing his job better than most.

I wish they'd stop trying to make emojis a thing.

Plus without a melted butter emoji, it'd be worthless

Racoon emoji?
Sweet!

So is there a community where people dress up as emojis and bang each other?

Nobody seems to have a problem with celebrating a car being launched into space.

It may seem trivial and useless to celebrate a lobster emoji, but silly things that make people smile are necessary to give us perspective and make us feel hopeful and happy in a country that seems torn apart by hate.  Angus King has been consistently trying to bring the fight to the Rs.  Let the man get a little mental breather to enjoy something goofy that has meaning to the state he represents.

Thank you subs, that got me on a bit of a Malcolm Tucker jag.

This is a good word.

I wonder how much time Fox News will spend on this before they pay lip service to that pesky Rob Porter wife beater thingy?
 
2018-02-08 08:33:51 AM  
I assume the headline is mocking the numbnuts who join every fun thread to say, "Sure, spend thing on fin-thing-_______ while ___________ catastrophe is happening!" You know, because people should never do fun things on their own time in hard times. The most recent one was someone who thought people were awful for laughing at the reveal of Trump's proto-Voldemort face in the back of his head.

I would hate to think subby was one of the "no joy or fun until the resistance wins" people.

I don't see why they're so happy about it, pretty soon Maine isn't going to have any lobsters.

It's all a bunch of eggplants, I wouldn't get too excited. Unless you're into that.

This I know the country is on fire but it's gonna take time to fix. He has done a great job so far and just wanted to have some fun. All of us could learn to take a breath sometimes and have some fun.  As someone up thread pointed out the cow crown signature was hilarious. After we have a laugh and a beer then we can go back to focusing on whatever farking evil thing happned in the last fifteen minutes.
