Ren & Stimpy in "The Preakness you Eeeediot!"

California Chrome is the favorite in today's Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown. There has been an awful lot of rain, so when I saw this pre-photoshopped pic of California Chrome practicing, I thought of none other than Muddy Mudskipper of Ren & Stimpy fame.

Muddy would be the favorite today, if only he didn't keep throwing his jockey, Cousin Sven. Ren & Stimpy fans be advised. Track conditions wet. Please wear your rubber nipples.

OK, so I watched cartoons in my youth (30's), so what? Here is a picture from 2011 of California Chrome as a foal. Check out those chrome socks and hood ornament! Don't you be a foal and bet against this colt!


  1. Very funny! Husband and I used to watch Ren & Stimpy over 20 years ago. "Oh Reeeeen ..." "What is it mon." *lol* That's a happy memory.

  2. Thanks Ed. You know me. I go into unexpected and unannounced blog hibernation now and again if readership goes over 3 hits per day. I can't handle that kind of pressure :) Blame Far Cry 3, a FPS PC game and virtual island I've been frequenting these last two weeks. I'll come back around though.

    Sparky is a R&S fan! Yes sir, I like it. I like it a lot!

  3. So, why do I have the suspicion you were abducted by aliens?

    Go ahead; fess up and tell us about can skip the parts about anal probes and such.

  4. Hah! Jess, I have no memory of alien sodomization, but THAT is EXACTLY how they roll.
