Mexed Missages

Aren't those of a southern persuasion supposed to hate the French?
Sarkozy the American never ceases to work his Gallic magic!
Vive le Sud, I guess.

Cajun powers, activate!

Great, now I have images of Justin Wilson going cai-yonne! on-yon!
I gar-on-tee! Help!

Sarkozy is Shrub's twin, separated at birth.

I was wondering when you would circle back to French-like posts. Where are they anyway? Have you forgot about the French? Have you forgot about freedom?

Now dixieland and the Eiffel Tower just doesn't "go" together. I don't like it. It is like...

F.O.T. said...

Oh lord... I just noticed the dixieland players on your photo are beatnick painters with instruments...

It's wrong, wrong!

Gees.... hmmmm....ahhhh....I don't think the Southern Persuasion really hates France.... as much as they like to 'wine' about them.

Hey...I heard that Ohio is cracking down on grass!

CANTON, Ohio - Homeowners who don't mow their grass in the northeast Ohio city of Canton now face stiffer penalties — including possible jail time. The city council unanimously passed a law Monday that makes a second high-grass violation a fourth-degree misdemeanor carrying a fine of up to $250 and as many as 30 days in jail.
The previous law only made the first violation a minor misdemeanor, with a fine of up to $150 but no jail time. The new law is to take effect in 30 days.

"This is the type of action we need to take in order to clean up our neighborhoods and our city," Mayor William J. Healy II said. -

Wowsers! What happens if you have too many dandelions? Dat dere Ohio.....dose Buckeyes doan screw around!!

diva, and his ratings are slowly approaching Bush territory. Hey world, stop voting for wingnuts.

FOT, non, non, j'adore la France, la langue français et les Français, alors, je deteste la liberté !

When we first came across that album, I thought the players looked like Ned Flanders' dad from this episode.

okjimm, actually, if you've been paying attention, Buckeyes DO screw around.

Fuck that grass cutting. If there b e dandelions, there be dandelions. I'll cut it when I'm good and ready. Any kind of shiny object distract the masses from politicians fucking us over.

But George M. was Irish. Wouldn't that result in Mexed Missage of something like:

"Laddie, if'n yall'd pass the potatoes, merci beaucoup."

We of the *ahem* Southern persuasion adore the French.

We even have Faux French restaurants in the Hill Country.

And it's "Progressive French Cuisine".

As opposed to "Nasty Regressive French Cuisine".

Adios, mon ami


Randal Graves said...

UC, I don't know man, are you sure there isn't a little Italiano in there? There's a lot of red on that album cover. Cabbage, ciao!

JNNR, all part of my dastardly plan! Now hand over that carte!

How would one type up the stereotypical Frenchie Frog Laugh? Hoh hoh hoh?

hill, progressive cuisine is the best kind of cuisine! No HFCS! And here you thought this Yankee typed 'vive le sud' in jest. ;-)

Je ne regrette rien said...

yeah well, none of my missing points are as pointy as your head! your momma! and don't put the carte before the horse (okay, I don't know what that last bit means, but it sounded snappy...)

DivaJood said...

Yes, but ze French, ze adore Jerry Lewis.

Je ne regrette rien said...

merde! zees ees true, ze zherry destroys zere, how you say, credibeeleetay!

La Belette Rouge said...

That album cover has me all kinds of confused. First, I thought it was a Disney land album and that it was the Country Bear Jamboree doing dixieland music. Only the bear cats look like painters out of a 1960's movie about France. French flag/Uncle Sam hat. Um, I guess this post proves that I shouldn't come to your blog before I have had a cocktail.

without the French, Southern food would suck

Anita said...

Double entendres aside, here are some of my personal (selected) favorites from the 'Dixieland' standards (via wiki):

A Good Man Is Hard To Find
Ballin' the Jack
(I Want A) Big Butter and Egg Man
What Did I Do To Be So Black and Blue
Black Bottom Stomp
Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me
Clarinet Marmalade
Cornet Chop Suey
Dippermouth Blues
Fidgety Feet
Hard Hearted Hannah
How Come You Do Me Like You Do?
I Wish I Could Shimmee Like My Sister Kate
I'm Coming Virginia
Oh Baby
Potato Head Blues
Shake That Thing
Squeeze Me
That Da-Da Strain

(yes, I'm back, for a little while .. with a new ooo la la french name ... kind of ... and a new look ...)


Randal Graves said...

JNNR, pointy means egghead means smart! And if you're riding the horse, then I can steal your carte!

diva, HEY LAY-DEE!

LBR, you should know by now that the crap hawked over here is best digested with a few whiskey chasers.

dr. zaius, hoh hoh hoh! (I really need to work on the phonetics of that Frenchie Frog Laugh)

swinebread, now there's nothing wrong with frying everything. Vive clogged arteries!

anita, Clarinet Marmalade? I didn't realize Paddington Bear was so popular! That Da-Da Strain strikes me as quite French.

Ooh la la indeed. Now, hang around for a least a little bit, okay? ;-)

Cajun powers, activate!

Form of... a crispy crawfish.

Betty C. said...

Oh, an album cover! I love the big stars-and-stripes decorated top hat! A great find.

Randal Graves said...

dean, shape of...a burgeoning bouillabaisse?

betty, you'll be happy to know that I have a few more! Not sure if they're as collectively comical as the last batch, but it's better than coming up with something substantive!

That's some scary merde, mon ami.
