My first Arby's venison sandwich "kill"

Arby's to sell venison sandwiches
Atlanta — Deer hunting season is on the way, but fans of venison might not have to trek out into the woods this year to get their fix.

Arby’s has announced that it will be offering venison sandwiches this fall in six states, including Michigan, where deer hunting is popular. The Atlanta-based chain says its sandwich will include thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions on a roll.

The venison sandwiches will be available at the following Michigan locations Nov. 12-15:

■ 4229 W Vienna Road, Clio
■ 4040 17 Mile Rd. NE, Cedar Springs
■1215 M-89, Plainwell
■ 8685 Birch Run Road, Birch Run

In a release announcing the sandwich, Arby’s chief marketing officer Rob Lynch acknowledges that the idea “is probably the biggest stretch for us yet” but adds that the deer meat meal is “incredibly delicious.”

Some of us are hunters. Some of us are gatherers. Some of us prefer the drivethru.

Chattering Teeth News - I plan to be first in line when the doors open at the Arby's Clio location on November 12 - assuming I get the deer blind constructed in time (depicted above), and further assuming there is still a working economy and commerce 5 days after Hilery (sic) is elected.

I've never been a hunter. Oh sure, I have camo Crocs and an assortment of firearms, and I HAVE stood in the woods staring vacantly at nothing for hours. I've just never put all those loves together.

This will be my first venison sandwich "kill".

Don't worry, though! I plan on taking these steps to ensure a successful sandwich hunt:

* I will wear an orange vest to make myself completely visible to other patrons in line to avoid them transacting through me.

* I plan on marinating myself in deer urine to cover up my natural scent (which will likely be an improvement after having spent 2 weeks in the parking lot deer blind). After all, I don't want to spook my sandwich if the wind changes.

* Immediately after 'bagging' my first venison sandwich, I plan to open the corner of about a dozen of the Arby's sauce packets and smearing the contents on my cheeks and forehead.

* I will utilize all parts of the sandwich, leaving no crispy onion crumb to waste.

* Assuming I had a successful sandwich hunt, I will not change my underwear until sandwich season is over.

I hope these tips help you to also have a successful sandwich hunt.

Newspaper to become Donut Shop in Jersey

Newspaper office being sold, set to become donut factory

The Trentonian newspaper headquarters on Perry Street in Trenton, NJ will become a huge Dunkin’ Donuts. Another 'brick and mortar' newspaper building gets re-purposed, this time not as a medical school or vegetable stand (eww), but a DONUT OUTLET!

If buildings have feelings, I choose to believe the Trentonian is weeping with joy for its fortuitous future. After years and years of churning out products made of newsprint and ink (and inserted with sales ads) to feed the mind, it will soon be churning out products made with
Enriched Unbleached Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Malted Barley Flour, Niacin, Iron as Ferrous Sulfate, Thiamin Mononitrate, Enzyme, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Palm Oil, Water, Dextrose, Soybean Oil, Whey (a milk derivative), Skim Milk, Yeast, Contains less than 2% of the following: Salt, Leavening (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Baking Soda), Defatted Soy Flour, Wheat Starch, Mono and Diglycerides, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Cellulose Gum, Soy Lecithin, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Artificial Flavor, Sodium Caseinate (a milk derivative), Enzyme, Colored with (Turmeric and Annatto Extracts, Beta Carotene), Eggs; Glaze: Sugar, Water, Maltodextrin, Contains 2% or less of: Mono and Diglycerides, Agar, Cellulose Gum, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Artificial Flavor.
and inserted with custard, crème or jelly filling to feed the soul.

I haven't had home delivery in almost 7 years, but donuts! So I decided to give The Trentonian a call.

***RING*** ***RING***
CSR: Trentonian Circulation Department, how may I help you?

ME: Yes, I would like to start a home delivery subscription. Do you deliver in Michigan?

CSR: Yes sir, we can start a mail subscription for you today.

ME: Mail?... errr... won't they get stale? 

CSR: Some say our product is stale the minute it rolls down the production line. Therefore, may I suggest you try our e-edition?

ME: What, you just email me a photo of a glazed or nutty every day?

CSR: Oh, so you know our editor, Mr Glazed and our publisher, Mr Nutty?

ME: Sorry babe, ya lost me. Just start me up on a Sunday Only subscription... You know, a real porch thumper. How about a dozen Bear Claws every Sunday?


Disclaimer: eating a dozen donuts 7-days per week will cause circulation issues.

Hey Sparty, Can you hear me now?

Hey, I’m Paul, I'm that schmarmy and effeminate pretend hipster who wears horn-rimmed glasses and a real imitation faux-leather jacket. I used to be known for those Verizon commercials where I asked, "Can you hear me now?."

But guess what, it’s 2016, and every network is great. In fact, Sprint’s reliability is now within 1% of Verizon.

Hey, I'm Jim Bob, and I never went to college but I used to be a Spartan fan and our slogan was, "It Starts Here," and I used to talk smack on the 'puter to all the Michigan fans. Not anymore. And certainly not after our 4th straight loss, with the latest against Northwestern - who lit us up for 54 points. Talk about 'Sh*tty coverage!'.
But guess what, it’s 2016, and the Michigan Wolverines are great.  Can I switch my loyalties like Paul?

Did Circus Clowns Kill Pedals the Bear?

The Facebook page for New Jersey’s celebrity bear Pedals reports that the beloved black bear has been assassinated.

 Chattering Teeth News - Residents around the quiet suburbs of New Jersey are in mourning today after learning the fate of their beloved adopted mascot, Pedals the bear, reportedly killed by a hunter during the bow and arrow hunting season last week. This blog does not know if the arrow-riddled carcass has been positively confirmed to be Pedals - but let's just say that in light of all the recent clown sightings, we are a little suspicious.

In life, Pedals walked upright due to missing a front paw, and loved to stroll through these neighborhoods apparently in search of pic-a-nic baskets. He was often spotted rummaging through garbage cans and local dumpsters just like a good chunk of other unemployed NJ residents of the human persuasion, due to obama's economy-stiffling policies.

"Last Friday I was sittin' on my porch drinkin' beer when dis bear walks by on two legs down the sidewalk. I just thought it was some dude in a bear suit checking his Fitbit," said an unnamed Joisey source. "That is until he squatted and laid one mean steamin' pile in my front yard."

While a local hunter has taken responsibility for killing Pedals, this blog believes the bear carcass he brought may be an imposter - with the hunter surreptitiously removing a paw to fake his kill and gain notoriety.

In any case, while this blog still holds out hope that Pedals is roaming free in the NJ countryside, it fears he is currently being bullied by Harambe and Cecil in Animal heaven.
(because they're kinda dicks)


I think they do.

Meanwhile, Hiccups the clown is a clown of interest in this case and is wanted for questioning.

Be on the lookout for a very, very small clown car loaded with his bearded ol' lady and approximately 50 of his clown gang members.

Dylan or Pooh?

Yes, this is what this political season has me resorting to.

The big news of the past week...
Some have called him a poet laureate who "dramatically redefined the boundaries of literature, setting off a debate about whether song lyrics have the same artistic value as poetry or novels."

But enough about the song stylings of Winnie-the-Pooh, who turned 90 years old yesterday. A A Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh was published October 14, 1926, and was Winnie-the-pooh so much as awarded a huney pot by the mainstream media? (SPOILER ALERT: NO!)

Apparently, some old folk singer named Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for his lyric scribblings. The dude may have some talent for writing, but he sure can't carry a tune like Christopher Robin's stuffed teddy. Talk about getting the short end of the wooden honey dipper!

I would even argue that Pooh's song lyrics were superior to Dylan's. Need proof?

DYLAN: The wind howls like a hammer.("Love Minus Zero / No Limit")
POOH: Oh, the wind is lashing lustily; And the trees are thrashing thrustily; And the leaves are rustling gustily ("A RATHER BLUSTERY DAY")
Winner: Pooh

DYLAN: Once upon a time, you looked so fine; Threw the bums a dime in your prime … didn’t youuuuuuuuuu?; You never understood that it ain’t no good, You shouldn’t let other people get your kicks for youuuuuuuu
POOH: The wonderful thing about Tiggers; Is Tiggers are wonderful things; Their tops are made out of rubber; Their bottoms are made out of springs; They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy;Fun, fun, fun, fun fun!; But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is;I'm the only one
Winner: Pooh

DYLAN:Wiggle wiggle wiggle like a bowl of soup; Wiggle wiggle wiggle like a rubber hoop ("Wiggle Wiggle")
POOH: I'm so rumbly in my tumbly; Time for something sweet ("RUMBLY IN MY TUMBLY")

OK, I gotta give that one to Bobby. So that got me to thinking... what if these two had collaborated? Like peanut butter and chocolate. Can we take two great songs and make them better? I think so.

I call this,
"All Along the Pooh Tower"

pics from A Smackerel for Crows

"There must be some way out of here" said the joker to the thief
Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood,
Where Christopher Robin plays.
"There's too much confusion", I can't get no relief

Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth
A donkey named Eeyore is his friend.
And Kanga and Little Roo
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

"No reason to get excited", the thief he kindly spoke
There's Rabbit and Piglet. And there's Owl.
"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But most of all Winnie the Pooh!

Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate
A tubby, little cubby, all stuffed with fluff.
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late".

He's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh.
All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
He's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh.
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

He's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh.
Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl
There's Rabbit and Piglet. And there's Owl.
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.
A willy, nilly silly old bear.

Grab 'em by the "Hannity"

Trump's "hot mic" moment.
It is most cringe-worthy watching the Trumpeter apologists do the moral equivalence dance. Just stop.

At least there is a silver lining. One day, folks will look back on this sordid episode and realize this was the moment when the phrase, "Grab 'em by the Hannity" was popularized.

If Shep Smith Monitored The Next Debate

I had insomnia so I watched a little of the Hurricane Matthew coverage in the middle of the night. While these storms are not to be trifled with, may we agree it was way over-hyped everywhere? I don't watch Faux Snooze so I missed this one:
Shepard Smith Freaks Out About Hurricane Matthew

I can almost see it now...
Mr. Trump, do you know what happens to those who stand in the way of Hurricane Hillary's path? Have you seen her body count list? Ever heard of Vince Foster? James McDougall? Benghazi?
She moves 30 feet to her right, and you and everyone you know are dead — all of you — because you can’t survive it. It’s not possible unless you’re very, very lucky. And your kids die, too.

WOW! Shep reminded me of Henry Kane, the ghoul on the porch scene in Poltergeist 2:

Kane: You're all gonna die in there! All of you! You are gonna die!

Hmmm. I think I'd rather have Reverend Kane on my front porch than the tiny karate hands of that buffoon, Sean Hannity. Or the jowly nonsensical mumbler, Brit Hume. Or any of the other establishment apologists over at Fox. 

The good news is, just like the "faux reverend, Kane," The "Faux News Channel" must be invited into the home willingly. Neither can just barge in and bludgeon you into violating your values by possessing you to vote for Trump.

Hurricanes no threat during Obama's reign (Climate Denied!)

In Obama's nomination victory in 2008, he made the claim that, "This was the moment - this was the time - when we came together to ... when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."

Boy, was he right, or what?

Remember, Obama had been president-elect for ONLY 3 DAYS when he turned Hurricane Paloma away from our shores by the sheer force of his planet-healing will.

As you can see from the chart, it took Texas oilman George W. Bush a few years in order to unleash his environmental destruction, but once he got going - BOY, HOWDY!

In the 2004 and 2005 seasons, Bush manipulated the climate and created 11 named hurricanes that caused untold damage and ruin. Everybody remember Katrina? Bush created and steered that storm, not just into the gulf and towards Louisiana, but directly into the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans while he watched his handiwork from 10,000 feet through the window of his cushy jet. Hmmm. Wonder why Mister Bush!

So be a Climate Denier all you want, but the tally of the tape don't lie, bro! 18 destructive storms under Texas oilman Bush, to only 4 minor dust-ups that created INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES and INFRASTRUCTURE SHOVEL-READY JOBS under President Obama.

So excuse me if I don't get excited about some tropical breeze named "Matthew" while Obama be juicin'.

So rest assured and let not your heart be troubled about Hurricane Matthew, and instead be frightened by something deserving of your fear - namely, clowns. I'm not worried about Hurricane Matthew's storm surge. Its the possibility of a clown surge for which we should be scared.

Bill Clinton Stares at Flint's Weather Ball

...When the weather ball is red, another commie is ahead.

You may recall Bill Clinton's reaction to the balloon drop at the DNC convention in January. He stood mesmerized and with mouth agape, as the netting bra released the colorful round mounds from the ceiling. He playfully batted and kicked them to and fro as they floated within range. You could see in his eyes that nothing else existed in the entire world to Bill in those moments, and we couldn't help but wonder if this was what Lewinsky saw when releasing her balloons.

Bill Clinton was in Flint yesterday to campaign for his wife, Hilery (sic). This was yet another reason for me not to break my almost 7 year absense from the city where I grew up and worked (besides the current prohibitive distance of about 7 miles).

I haven't been in downtown Flint in so long that I don't know if the old Citizen's Bank Weather Ball is actually still there. Since the 50's, the Weather Ball has been a sort of Flint icon (like street violence and lead water) and has dominated the city's skyline. There is a well-known jingle we grew up with around these parts that goes like this:

When the weather ball is red, warmer temperatures ahead.
When the weather ball is blue, colder temperatures are due.
Yellow light in the weather ball means there will be no change at all.
When it blinks in agitation, there will be precipitation.

If it is still there (and it was lit up) I imagine it at least distracting Bill Clinton for a few hours.

Maybe that potential problem was foreseen in advance and a large tarp was thrown over the Weather Ball to keep it out of sight from Billy's wandering eyes. After all, Georgetown University was forced to use tarps to cover the crucifixes and all other references to Jesus Christ in advance of Barack Obama's visit back in 2009.

October Surprise Predictions - You Won't Believe What's About To Happen!

It's October, meaning political pundits everywhere are girding their loins and waiting for the other shoe to drop. NOTE: Hilery (sic) left the first shoe on the curb by her limo.

Here are just a few of my October Surprise predictions:

Julian Assange of Wikileaks keeps his promise by releasing damaging information meant to sink Hilery's (sic) presidential aspirations once and for all. Her poll numbers and lead over Trump increase dramatically as a result.

Conspiracy theorists have suggested that Hilery (sic) used "hand signals" to communicate with moderator Lester Holt during the first presidential debate, as if moderators have ever needed promptimg in rigging these debates. To dispel these charges from the "parent's basement dwellers", Hilery (sic) performed the next debates in a full straight jacket pantsuit. Her poll numbers and lead over Trump increase dramatically as a result.


FULL DISCLOSURE: I have used hand signals at my TV and directed at the moderators during these debates for many years.  

Hilery (sic) puts out a list of possible Supreme Court nominees, and topping her list is Alicia Machado, the former Venezuelan Miss Universe who Hilery (sic) claimed was "fat-shamed" by Trump in 1996. Machado would join Sonia Sotomayor as the only other woman on the court of Latin descent. The pair become known as the "Wise Latina" and the "Size XXXL Latina." 

Is Trump trying to lose?  The theory that Donald Trump got into the presidential race in order to hand the White House to Hilery (sic) and to destroy the Republican Party "got real" when Trump showed up to the second presidential debate wearing an army helmet, ala Michael Dukakis. Trump spent two thirds of the debate simply over-enunciating the word "Chi-naaah". Her poll numbers and lead over Trump increase dramatically as a result.


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reach an amended temporary custody agreement that will allow Brad to visit Angelina's father, Jon Voight,  monitored by a therapist.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick suffers third degree burns after his afro catches fire when he attempts to burn the American flag during all his free time on the sidelines and bench.

The United States reneged on earlier agreement to hand over the oversight of the internet to a global entity when it learned it's self-professed inventor, Algore, was not part of the agreement and we were expected to keep him.

Those are my predictions so far. Yours?
