Open Thread: Now For Something Completely Different

Okay, Facebook gave me my laugh of the day. I posted this link and the preview to it on my FB page and FB removed it:

I Think Gabe Misses Bixby

I have moved the actual photo below the fold, because, you know, it’s clearly sensitive.

Bixby is beat from a very long week of partying. Everybody loves the Bixby. I think Gabe missed him. Actually, you can’t see it, but Gabe also has his foot resting on my foot.

And can I tell you how charming it is to have the ducks run to the back door to greet me when I got home? I think they missed me. <3

Clearly, my cooking blog is x-rated.

ETA: I requested a review and they banned it again.

    @Baud: I’m dying. If they’d seen him when his equipment was intact, they would have fallen off their chairs. #elephanttesticles

    @TaMara (HFG): so what does FB find offensive, assholes or dicks? Seriously if it’s either of them the entire platform wouldn’t exist.

    No, its only an ethics investigation.

    The Department of Just us Republicans has seen no need to bring criminal charges into this.

    I just had to delete several photos from a recent Tristan session involving similar leg action. I didn’t notice it at the time, but later I saw that he got — you know — into it.

    Under its new all the truth and only the truth, all the time policy, FB isn’t about to let sleeping dogs lie.

    Just the bare facts.

    It’s quite clear that Gabe is the one in charge at your house. Gabe Rules All.

    Pretty sure Bixby’s willow is planted too close to Gabe.

    This is why I won’t put my photos on FB. One gatekeeper of morals for two billion people. Fuck them.

    @burnspbesq: From the “how not to write a slug line URL” file. Just picking out the nouns doesn’t work very well.

    I can think of one politician who might be aroused by that pic. Bixby is the size of a small horse.

    A couple hundred kids in Manila censor much of FB. Wonder who believes dog and kitteh together is kinky?

    @WaterGirl: It looks more like Gabe is concerned about the likelihood of dog farts.

    Well, no shit. That’s what Kelly said it was about from the beginning. Problem is, when people are already desperate and afraid that they and their children will be murdered, it’s not much of a “deterrent” to say they’ll be separated … unless you plan to treat those kids even worse than the people trying to murder them would have so that the violent death of your children seems preferable to them being in the custody of the United States. Which is why John Kelly is a fucking monster.

    So on Giving Tuesday (or as one wag put it, ‘the day everyone asks for money but doesn’t give much’), FB’s #3 United States nonprofit by rank of funds raised was some sort of strange New Jersey Chinese expat ‘newspaper’ that exposes the ills of Communism. So FB is up to their usual goodness.

    But a belly shot of a dog? Banned, forever!
