The State of the Bandwagon

Screw the State of the Union or the State of the Debt Crisis (la-la-la-la) or even the State of the Steelers (however, if they let my self-united husband Daniel Sepulveda go, who will read the Bible to me each night while rubbing my feet shirtless?! WHERE’S MY GOD THEN?!), and instead, let’s focus on the state of the Buccos bandwagon as drawn up for me by the extremely talented Mitch Donaberger (@msprout on twitter).

I have long wanted a visual representation of this bandwagon I invent each year, drive until July, and then KABOOM! SO LONG YOU MISERABLE PIECE OF GARBAGE. ENJOY THE BOTTOM OF THE MON. I HOPE THE TUNNEL MONSTER DIVES IN TO FEED ON YOUR CARCASS AND TO POOP IN YOUR SKULL.

I have issues.

Not the least of which is that I imagine Daniel Sepulveda reading me the Bible and rubbing my feet while shirtless.

At some point later in the season, I will share with you another version of this that Mitch did, this one much … boobier.

Why isn’t boobier a word?

First of all, it’d be perfect for a sentence like, “I like this cartoon version of myself. It makes me appear much boobier than I really am,” and second of all, it’d be a hell of a fun Spelling Bee word.

Spell boobier.

BOOBIER. Can you give me the origin of the word?

Some blogger in Pittsburgh.

I prefer “Gotham.”

    I couldn’t help but notice the tires are flat.

    That is more awesome than a possum. But where are the margaritas?

    That is so great. He even drew a picture of me stabbing myself in the eye with a bottle of whiskey.

    Jerry Meals called the angry cloud girl safe even though “I like sports now” guy got the tag on.

    … Liked the pigeons and the guy with the P hat that still has the sticker on it.

    I’m in denial about Sepulveda.

    Isn’t a boobier what you girls wear to hold your boobs up?

    A boobier (booby-yay) is someone that works at Victoria Secret and helps people select the appropriate bra.

    This is great. I’d say the bandwagon is just *barely* not full enough. There should be one person, say, laying across the top.

    And by September, it should be like a Katamari.

    I second Ms. Lee – it should be a t-shirt. Someone make it happen!

    The decline and fall of Western civilaztion in one blog post. Boobiers, shirtless men, bibles, the debt ceiling, Victoria’s Secret. The internet is fun!

    Well, looks like the bandwagon was sidelined with a couple flat tires this weekend. Too bad.
