Is it OK if I used it to nudge several people towards Death Valley with it?

The Buffalino wants to wish you all happy holidays. He is recovering nicely from an injury sustained in combat as a feline of fortune. From now on he will not only be distinguished by his handsome face and beautiful white trimmed buff coat but also by his tongue which now has a perfectly shaped bite out of the right side.

Peace and plenty to you all.

The Buffalino is always interested in new adventures, just wake him up.

The last installments of the story were wonderful to reread. Speaking of timing, the 2nd Bad Hair Club for Men meeting recently adjourned in a press conference with Rodman calling out the Prez and wondering why there can be a meeting with Beyonce and J-Z but not Dennis?!?

I have to think that Rodman is a lurker in this thread. Or maybe he's the guy under the blanket? Stay tuned for further developments!

When you're right, you're right! We sure need The Rock at a time like this! FYI, I've been to four homeschooling events across the country this year already.

If time permits, I'll try to reignite the story.

Hi! Was busy spending a ridiculous amount of money for some Homeschool stuff on here and decided to stop by. Anyone around anymore? Martin, after reading your last post, I think there's plenty of new fodder for you in the news lately for a follow up story! Enough mess going on to make a person want to stop living in the real world and create their own alternate reality....kinda like TCTSNBN! Anywho, hope all my fellow clubbers are doing well out there in the real world.
Best Wishes,
Jenn (still short for Bruce)

Rockbama turned briefly to signal the group at the rear of the press conference (a signal to get the HBM over to the White House in the next hour), and then entered the White House himself to have a little talk with Barack Obama himself in the west wing.

Michelle Obama extended her hand in greeting to The Rock: "I'm Michelle Obama, the President's wife."

"Oh, I'm so very sorry," he replied, causing Barack to purse his lips. But The Rock marched straight up to the president fearlessly.

"Bro, what you doin' with this here North Korea situation?" The Rock demanded. "It's out of hand. You're making my job tougher, standing in for you. I don't do 'incompetent' very well."

"Well, I..." Barack began.

"I've heard enough," The Rock put his hand up to silence the President. "Listen, you've got this Dennis Rodman meeting with the son of the former ruler, right? Rodman, the guy who had green hair, right?"


"So, you know what these two guys are up to. It's obvious."

"Uh, what ARE they up to?" the President asked in puzzlement.

"Starting a new Bad Hair Club for Men. And it's something you've got to nip in the bud."

"But why are they testing nukes?" the real President asked.

"Nobody laughs at someone with nukes, man." Rockbama shook his head. "They know that if they want their Bad Hair Club for Men to be respected, it needs to be bristling with stuff that says, Hey, world, shut yo' mouth!"

"My foreign policy advisers don't see things quite that way," Obama smirked back in disbelief.

"I know. That's why I'm going to have to fire them all."

"But I'm the one who hired them!" Obama protested.

"Yeah, I know, I'm always cleaning up your messes for you," The Rock started to leave the Oval Office in disgust. As he passed Michelle on the way out, he repeated his earlier message to her. "President's wife, right? I'm so very sorry."

<You guys are great!! I'm smiling big reading about Rockbama's clarifications, the Buffalino's pondering on the status of his dead-or-alive bounty, and that interesting group of well-dressed folks uniting for a higher purpose.
Yes, it's deja vu all over again--and I'm liking it!

And someday soon I'll get inspired enuf to add to the adventures...>
TTFN, y'all,

The Buffalino's ears pricked, was that sound of wolves howling somewhere close by? Did his nose deceive him, could that be the scent of chicken feathers? Maybe it was time to find his old friends, maybe by now that dead or alive bounty was off his head.

...And at the back of the room of the press conference stood a small flock of people, all wearing matching shirts with the letters TCTSNBN on the back, and carrying large books of the same title. Who did they work for, and what was their agenda?....

The Buffalino stared at the Rockbama's shirt then sat down on his Webster's and scratched his ear. Humans, so difficult to understand at times and why did he suddenly crave corned beef?

Lou and Melissa Finkel shook their heads after watching the real Barack Obama's news conference.

"Should we?" Melissa asked cryptically.

Lou nodded... he was already paging The Rock. "Give him a minute." He smiled and leaned back in the couch.

And sure enough, the Secret Service escorted a flustered Obama away from the microphone, and The Rock showed up instead.

"Boy, give someone an inch and he takes over your press conference!" Rockbama smiled. "Questions?"

"Mr. President, what about reports that you issued stating that Benghazi was not a terrorist act?" the first reporter shouted out.

"Man, you got that story wrong," The Rock chided. "What I said was, Ben Gazzara is not a terrible actor. Next reporter who distorts my message gets decked."

"So the IRS hassling those Tea Party groups..." another reporter started a leading question.

"Right. Totally garbled by you clowns. That was all about Irish coffee and tea pots."

"But Mr. President, didn't Harry Reid say the IRS needs to go after right-wing groups masquerading as social agencies?"

"Man, I wouldn't have a job if DC wasn't allowed to masquerade as a social agency. Next question."

"Mr. President, with all these alleged misquotes, to what do you attribute these errors by the press?"

"I dunno. Maybe you guys don't spell things like I do." And as the stand-in President turned around to leave the microphone, his bright green T-shirt displayed a large message that made that problem even clearer:

Hi Clubbers!! Great to see you all lurking and nudging! Nothing much new here, same old same old. Hope you've all well. TTFN! mango

Hello there fellow clubbers! Didn't know until today that anyone had been popping in here. For some reason I didn't get any notifications until today. Better late than never! Martin, I was just talking about you Tuesday...the guy at the pet store told me that when our guinea pig was gone someday that we should try getting rats. I mentioned that I knew of someone who adopted rats and loved them :-).
I was just reading an article a couple of days ago about a nudging incident by a South Korean on an airplane. He had become hot tempered on a flight coming to America. He was completely impatient with the flight attendant and during his rant at the woman, hit her on the head with a magazine he was holding. (among other tantrum acts...which America said immediately return home or we can interrogate you. He went home.) Anyway, he claimed that while he was arguing with her she "accidentally ran into the magazine he was holding." I don't know, I think maybe he's part of another nudging club or secretly wants to be part of ours. Maybe he knows about our past club events with Kimmie the chick magnet and The Rock. We are the best role models after all.
Hope everyone is doing well,
Jenn (still short for Bruce)

The Buffalino knocked a book off the bed so I guess that's a "hello" from him. off to work now, good to know someone's still watching the discussion.

To nudge, or not to nudge, that is the question.

I'm still out here! Nudging away!

Hello? Any fellow nudgers out there?

He is on the bed, I do have a fireplace next to it, and I live in a creaky old house. The closest to a cocktail I have is a bottle of chocolate stout.

The firelight flickered as The Buffalino and Diego II finished off the last of the catnip. The overwhelming urge for a nap had already prompted Diego to yawn/stretch/curl into the comforter, tail covering his nose and blocking the flickering light from the fireplace. The Buffalino also felt The Nap stealthily creeping up on him but the story his mistress, Mahala had been reading to them had him on edge. Any little noise or creak in the old house had him jumping, the tunes from her iPhone weren't helping either buy why, oh why had she decided to read The Arrogance of Evil? And why was she now in the kitchen mixing cocktails? What wicked power of false evidence would be delivered with... yawn... stretch... curl. The Nap always wins in the end. At least, for the duration... of the nap.
<Waves to clubbers of TCTSNDN!>

The Buffalino would say hello but he's napping with Diego II right now. Hope you all are well and doing well. We should get together and have another adventure sometime.

Heeeyyyyyy Clubbers! I thought this poor little thread had faded away. Glad to see a few pigeons return to the roost for a quick hello! Hope everyone is doing well and having a good new year. <waves back>
