It’s Not My Fault

I would have thought that the Anthony Weiner story would have died by now and would certainly be too old to use under our new current events theme. This weekend Anthony added a new but inevitable twist when he said he wants a leave of absence to seek “treatment.” Treatment for what, I have always been told there is no cure for stupidity.

“Treatment” of course has become the ultimate refuge for the irresponsible. I am sure that part of treatment is in theory accepting responsibility in the same way that the key to success is learning to fake sincerity. The other thing about treatment that I would watch out for is the old rule of “unintended consequences.” Tiger got treatment for his sex addiction and still lost his wife and now can’t play golf worth a shit.

Trying but failing to hit the exacta at the Belmont this weekend I am reminded of a story about a treatment that I am sure works. Horses that hold particular promise are not gelded and continue to race with their full manhood. If they are successful at racing they are then retired to stud which is a life of leisure occasionally interrupted by some command performances. But while they are still racing and still being fully equipped they will at times be distracted by members of the opposite sex. Their trainers do not want distractions they want the horse to succeed on the track. So if one of these poor devils becomes distracted to the point of an erection it is the job of the stable boy to whack the same with a stick. Now there is a “TREATMENT” !!

    The Bagged ONE should be “more concern” (sic) with spelling, punctuation, grammar, and content than JJ’s location!
    Speaking of “treatment” I have not yet taken JJ back to the Fixing Factory after watching the Tourists get blown out by the Crawdads on Sunday… He is probably considered AWOL… So I’ve made him MOI co-pilot for Roadie Leg II since MOI Sister reached her breaking point after Leg I and has flown back to Littlewood.
    Speaking of Just JACKWAGON, he NE-VER (contrary to popular lore promulgated by the Bagged ONE) had more than 2 wheels… It Just SEEMED that way cause he used them so well!
    BTW, We are in an undisclosed faux Gaelic tavern enjoying rare local lamb burgers with local bleu cheese, local organic baby spinach, house horseradish mustard, Cole slaw, and sweet parsnip fries… Washed down with several pints of excellent local Pilsner… Life is good, away from Littlewood!!!

      Correcting minor typo’s on a blog, especially ones made after happy hour, is considered gauche. I guess correcting you for being gauche is rather gauche itself.
      Is that true about your sister bailing out on you. How many miles/hours did she last? She may have set the record for continuous time in your company for a member of her gender.

  • Bagwan

    That’s right Ada, Auki’s back

    • Bagwan

      Oops — that should say Zuki’s back. I wish there was an edit feature here.

    While well known, Baggy’s obscession with Jane Austin has finally spilled over into his personal life!  Artfully he’s avoided being the center of attention while provoking otherwise peaceful citizens into a blathering mindless crowd toting pitch-forks and torches!  A shame really.

    • Bagwan

      I think it was Tracy Austin but your point is still valid

    What pisses me off is boy weiner is taking a leave of absence to go into rehab!  Guess who’s paying for it?  Go ahead and take a stab at it.  what an asshole!

    • Bagwan

      fez, while you are a 100% correct about the cost of Anthony’s weiner treatment, just be a little careful about using an expression like “what an asshole.” There is no way, with his paranoia that Zuki doesn’t thing you are referring to him. I cannot tell you how many times I have been sitting in a bar with him where he says “did you hear what that guy just said.” Yeah, he just ordered a shot and a beer… Zuki will become not only indignant but wild eyed and swear that the fellow said: “I would like to take a shot at that queer.”

      Zuki is tonight apparently down at the studio burning one and rubbing one off. Zuki is predictable, I am more concern with the whereabouts of the three-wheeled Jackwagon.

    THWACK!  OUCH!!  Treatment indeed!  The Bagster makes a good point about treatments in general in that they seldom work.  Believe it or not I’ve been taking ‘treatments’ at the “Pathalogical Liars Clinic”  downtown Littlewood and up until I got thwacked it had little effect.  I always tell the truth!

      You can tell the way that horse is hanging his head that he has just seen the stable boy approaching.
