Proof that Cleveland isn't all cracked concrete and cannibalism

Tengrain, I'm looking at you.











































































Man, I love this camera. Now I can put even less thought into posting than I did before, which I'm sure you've noticed. Oh, alright, you insatiable dogs, here's come classic Cleveland:































That poor, poor barrel. The backstory: when we initially refused the below, being the city flush with bootstrap pulling patriots of the first rank that we are, an army of Guevaran partisans overran our streets and shot many of us dead and murdered that poor bird out of raging socialist spite. Sniff.

From "purty" to "roadkill". Quality post, Randal. I also see that Cleveland is similar to the whole of the UK in that you have traffic cones and barrels up at construction sites but no actual workmen there to warrant the use of said cones and barrels. ;-)

David Barber said...

P.s. Did you watch Man U? If so what site do you use over there? veetle.com is a great one for English Premiership. Arsenal v Man City is on at 5.15pm (UK time) and will certainly be on veetel. Just thought I'd let you know.

You got a camera? Oh joy (and morbidity)! Thank you for sharing the real fake you, Randal. And, to think I was expecting to come here and see something about that poor Poison lad.

Randal Graves said...

david, well, in the defense of skilled labor, that photo was taken this Saturday morning. ;-)

And I keep meaning to check that out, especially since Rupert's Fucks Soccer doesn't always show the game you want to watch. Anything to decrease my work output!

FB, holy goat cheese, you are not a member of the undead!

Someone got poisoned? Was it arsenic or old lace?

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

There is no proof that that is Clevelandistan, home of the newly wed and the nearly dead.

Now, if a zombie's hand was raising out of the dirt holding a tulip, that would be proof.

Regards,

Tengrain

PS - Eat at Ray's!

Graves you socialist bastard! So that's where all my tax dollars went. Probably being done by illegal aliens too.

Tom Harper said...

Oh my God, the Communists have conquered Cleveland too??

That there "American Recovery Act" is a foot in the door, a way for The Evil One to destroy the Puritan Ethic and sap America's moral fiber.

okjimm said...

'Clevelandistan' oooooh, ooooh, I like that. I think we should invade the place.

We could call the invasion a "War on Error."

Randal Graves said...

tengrain, excusez-moi, hippie, embiggen the penultimate photo.

demeur, but at least we can point them out by their clothes.

tom, and replace our greasy burgers and fries with actual fiber!

okjimm, shouldn't you be out and about tipping cows? Hey, is that a book you're reading?

sunshine said...

Sheesh!

I saw the pretty pictures, started getting warm and fuzzy -- but with a nagging inkling I was being set up. Sure enough, you fowled out.

By any chance, does Ray's serve Mystery Pot Pies? :)

Holte Ender said...

Oh to be in Cleveland now that Spring is here . . .

Christopher said...

After 6 months of winter, residents of Cleveland deserve tulips and warmer weather.

Of course, the truth is, those beautiful tulips are growing alien pod babies who will blanch forth in a few weeks and devour innocent office workers and the homeless.

Such is life is Cleveland.

okjimm said...

//be out and about tipping cows?//

I must be honest..... I only tip cows when the quality of service has been exceptional and the dining experience was moo-ving.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

A printed sign is not proof. anyone can get a sign printed or Photoshop one in.

Something scenic and identifiable is required, like maybe one of the Brown's being beaten up by an old lady, or maybe a fan committing ritual seppuku.

Regards,

Tengrain

Some team Stoke turned out to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-(

Beach Bum said...

Ah the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act" can't show such signs down here in JesusLand. The Righteous Collective, just think of the Borg with Bibles, would have a fit and it might give some ideas to those few with partially free minds that at least a little money was being used for something other than supporting rich bankers.

Ricky Shambles said...

The pictures of flowers were disquieting, then you reminded me where I spent most of my life. Ah, the sour visual feel of home...

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, please do not croon any 80s cock rock or you will anger the proprietor of this dump. Merci.

SWA, a mystery so dark, not even the man at 221B Baker Street could solve it!

holte, don't worry, we still retain plenty of cracked concrete if that's your gig.

christopher, I like winter. If I was made philosopher-king of the world and had the ability to manipulate space-time, I'd nuke summer.

okjimm, groan. Moo-ve along.

tengrain, would I lie to you?

david, what the fuck was that shellacking? An awful fucking game to watch.

BB, what if the money was used to improve the condition of the Appalachian trails?

ricky, I'll see if I can locate some more dead fauna. I'd hate for any ex-Clevelander to be so homesick.

I like the pictures of the pretty flers!

"These flowers are pretty
And ready for plucking
She is seventeen
and ready for college."
