The Johnson's Annual Greeting

Sauce Gilds the Lilly

Sauce Gilds This Lily

Getting ready for tomorrow's family Christmas.  Made the Indoor pulled pork recipe, with one change. The written instructions offer two sauces; this time I tried number 2,  and horry clap!  This stuff is so good that I could drink it,  except I'd get a UTI sure as hell.  I'm not going to pull it until tomorrow; hope it doesn't dry out any, because it's Five Stars as it is. 

South Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce

  •  ½ cup of defatted juices
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup yellow mustard
  • ¼ cup packed light brn sugar
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce

I forgot who sent this cat playing with balls pic, but the caption was "Should Have Been a Norman Rockwell Cover," or some such.  Yes, had he lived it's probable that Mr Rockwell would have been influenced by our toxic culture.  Reminded my of the rollover that's hanging in the Loover,

The Duck That Got Way

When Democrats are in charge                                               

[...] This is what happened.  The whole idea of the show was to parade these nouveau riche Christian hillbillies around so that we could laugh at them. "Look at them," we were supposed to say.  "Look how backward they are!  Look what they believe!  Can you believe they really live this way and believe this stuff?  See how they don't fit in? HAHAHA"

When the producers saw the way the show was shaping up, different than they envisioned it, they tried to change course.  They tried to get the Robertson's to tone down their Christianity, but to their eternal credit they refused.  They tried to add fake cussin' to the show by inserting bleeps where no cussword was uttered.  At best, they wanted to make the Robertson's look like crass buffoons. At worst they wanted them to look like hypocrites.

They desperately wanted us to laugh at the Robertsons.  Instead, we loved them. [Full]

Tangentially related .. this reminds me of the Clarence Thomas affair.  Aftermath polls showed that 66%—across the board; Blacks, Whites, Women, Men, Democrat and Republican—66% thought Clarence Thomas was being truthful and Anita Hill the liar.  Hollywood kicked in with references on TV sitcoms and stand up comedy about what a liar Thomas was, and before you know it, the polls reversed themselves.  Which of course demonstrates just how dedicated to the Liberal cause our media are.  And why we have this government.
