A Memorial Day post, G:TB-style

I hope everyone is enjoying their long holiday weekend, in remembrance of Memorial Day. I am not one to ever wax poetic, but since I am writing this post I would just like to thank all those who have fought and sacrificed for this country, and think I speak for the entire G:TB community in doing so.

Now, having said that, here's some Lee Greenwood to get you going:



And, as has become tradition for these patriotic posts, some Americana being displayed on the female form:

Original babe (brought back by request)


Replacement babe


One final note: word is Whitney will once again portray Abraham Lincoln in today's D.C. Memorial Day parade. We hear he's even more hungover than usual, which should be fun for him given the oppressive heat and humidity he will be exposed to while wearing non-breathable clothing in direct sunlight. Good luck, buddy.


Abe Update: the big man got mentioned by name on the air, as portraying Mr. Lincoln for the eighth time. He got literally three seconds of facetime, but I did manage to grab this pic:

those of you in the nation's capital can catch igor on fox5 beginning at 2:00. look for the tall fellow with heatstroke.

T.J. said...

I have decided the goofy duck lips on that bikini-clad babe annoy the piss out of me. Replacement tail coming soon.

Dave said...

how long until igor becomes a full-fledged lincoln impersonator, talking in honest abe's style, accent, and manner and visiting middle schools across the land to educate them about bad fake beards?

congrats marls!

Dave said...

that was weird. the brunette turned blonde. and i didn't notice any "duck lips." do we need to teach you what to look at in a photo like that?

zman said...

This post made me think that the cover of Amorica could not be made today because the disco mitt is extinct.

T.J. said...

Dave, do not attempt to judge my posting of patriotic bikini-clad babes. I did minutes and minutes of research in Google Images to make this post work. Now sit yo ass down and enjoy it.

T.J. said...

rob, did you go down to the parade this year?

TR said...

Nice job, Roddick.

rob said...

i strongly prefer the original patriotic lass.

sadly, i am not at the parade. i'm cycling through an epic honey do list. cleaned toilets, vacuumed stairs, trimmed hedges. preparing to edge the lawn and stain some wood before settling in for the ncaa lax finals. and igor as abe.

T.J. said...

Original babe has returned, due to popular demand.

rob said...

will of the people!

T.J. said...

Heat index in D.C. creeping on 100 right now. God speed, Igor.

T.J. said...

Abe update added.

zman said...

Is that a prosthetic nose?

Marls said...

Thanks for the well wishes. Sitting at JFK trying at JFK fighting the hangover with vodka sodas waiting for our flight to Madrid. I cannot imagine how Igor survived his parade duties today.

Many thanks to the boys from Unit M at table 12 for taking the party to another level last night.

Danimal said...

Congrats Marls.
I favor original babe.
"staining wood" heh rob?
I hope Abe is still with us.

T.J. said...

Marls, are you at JFK?

Igor said...

Abe is alive and well, and home. Thanks, Teej, for watching and posting a pic. It was a sweaty mess out there.

TR said...

Just finished this week's Mad Men. "Lemme see 'em" is my new favorite phrase.

zman said...

Turns out there's no good way to tell your wife that you found a dead mouse in the basement.

TR said...

Did you try charades?

Danimal said...

Abl at the charades comment....that's bar laugh.

zman said...

Abe Lincoln: vampire hunter?

zman said...

I yelled "let me see em" immediately after that line was said and it went over better than the dead mouse.

Shlara said...

Igor--I had no idea you double as Lincoln. You may have some more appearance opportunities with this Lincoln Vampire movie.

Is that for real? Can't believe a studio paid actual money to make that movie.

Danimal said...

Saw the Lincoln Vampire trailer last week when I saw The Dictator. Might be one of those so bad you feel like you have to see it. I'm thinking that is their strategy....or stragety.

TR said...

It's Tim Burton, so you have to be a bit open-minded. He directed Planet of the Apes, fer crissakes!

zman said...

Only Sam Raimi could make this work.

Groovy.

T.J. said...

The "Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" author also did a book called "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". Now, I have been told by some who read it that both these books are actually quite entertaining. As a movie, though, we'll have to see I guess.

Danimal said...

Of Mice, Men, and The Goonies could be good.

T.J. said...

War and Peace and Smurfs

Squeaky said...

Apocalypse Now and My Little Ponies

Dave said...

Busta Rhymes and Punishment

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly and Kenny G.

Dave said...

The Hobbit and Bab Saget.

zman said...

A Tale of Two Titties.

"The team that has the most points is going to win.". Thanks for the insight Shaq!

Danimal said...

A bee sting and computer virus this morning. Looking for a hug.

Danimal said...

No longer infected. Resuming unproductivity.

zman said...

RIP Doc Watson.

Danimal said...

is it me or is it not memorial day anymore? just askin.

rob gets a new job and is all of a sudden "busy" with other things, keeping him from what is truly important in the world, my entertainment. there's much to discuss - the "causeway cannibal" down in south beach for starters.

Shlara said...

Happy NBA Draft Lottery Day! The most anticipated date on the Wizards calendar every year. And 9 times out of 10, the most disappointing day of the year.

Squeaky said...

Say it ain't so, Doc.

Dave said...

just read abou the causeway cannibal. "bath salts" is a terrible name for a drug.

T.J. said...

new post up, for danimal and shlara
