    There is a Santa Anna joke in here somewhere…


  2. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 6:32 am:

    There it is

    I paid 30,000 units for it, now I’m heading to Knowhere to sell my orb for 4 billion units to The Broker.

    Hopefully it all works out.


  3. - PublicServant - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 6:42 am:

    Just looking for a leg up, is that so bad?


  4. - DocNoyes - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 7:18 am:

    Well. I’m stumped


  5. - Sangamo Girl - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 7:38 am:

    Leg day.


  6. - Ok - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 7:40 am:

    “It was at that point that Jack pondered his next steps. Turn north, and return home to the bustle of civilization from which he came. Turn South and venture out on to rhe open road, and the clear unknown future which it held. Or maybe a third option, to stay, to find a new love in the rural roads of the Macon County line.”


  7. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 7:53 am:

    SOS has finally retired the “Cyberdrive Illinois” moniker for their website. For the first time since probably about 2000 or earlier (since cyberdrive seems so Y2Kish).

    https://www.ilsos.gov/home.html

    However, they’ll have to update their latest appointment system promo ad as it still has CyberdriveIllinois on it. Which we discussed on here last Wednesday:

    Might make a great stocking stuffer for someone come Christmas.

    The weather’s been rough
    I think I’ve had enough
    The farm is taking its toll
    Each day I feel it’s a little unreal
    It feels like it’s time to roll

    When I got hurt in the field
    I refused to yield
    Keeping the beat of my day
    But what I need is fun, think I’ll go on the run
    I’ll see you when I feel ok

    If you see my leg, it’s my calling card
    It means I was out your way
    Don’t worry, it’s fine, happens all the time
    I’ll see you when I’m feeling ok

    Now my leg and me, you’d think we’d be wed
    It seems to find its own adventure so it’s been said
    When we finally unite it’s like an old friend
    Then I know I’m ok

    If you see my leg, it’s my calling card
    It means I was out your way
    Don’t worry, it’s fine, happens all the time
    I’ll see you when I’m feeling ok


  10. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:26 am:

    “Stop, stop… right there… (Sigh)… keep going, it’s a left… mine’s a right”


  11. - Skeptic - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:29 am:

    Aren’t the Bears looking for a kicker?


  12. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:29 am:

    In other news, Senator Tammy Duckworth’s campaign launched a search for a new travel director.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:30 am:

    “Stop, stop… right there… (Sigh)… keep going, that’s not my shoe”


  14. - Blue Dog - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:30 am:

    47th. Good stuff but borderline. I like.


  15. - Give Me A Break - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:31 am:

    Bailey left the only leg he had to stand on.


  16. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:34 am:

    Where’s the “Lincoln Once Took This Road” sign? He most likely had to while on the lawyer circuit.


  17. - AnonymousFool - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:43 am:

    Where is the rest of the lamp?


  18. - Fly Creek - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:44 am:

    Several IHOP jokes to be made here.


  19. - Nuke The Whales - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:49 am:

    ==There it is. I paid 30,000 units for it, now I’m heading to Knowhere to sell my orb for 4 billion units to The Broker. Hopefully it all works out.==
    Excellent Guardians of the Galaxy reference to start out the morning. Kudos.


  20. - Candy Dogood - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:56 am:

    Maybe there was a miracle.


  21. - Jibba - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:05 am:

    Only one person qualified for the rapture.


  22. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:07 am:

    ===IHOP jokes===

    “Waffle House, I meant Waffle House”

    (Tips cap to - Nuke The Whales -)


  23. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:08 am:

    ==Where’s the “Lincoln Once Took This Road” sign? He most likely had to while on the lawyer circuit.==

    Who knows, maybe at that site Lincoln had to stop the horse and do a “live in nature” stop before continuing.


  24. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:16 am:

    Not exactly how I planned to kick off my day, but it’ll work.


  25. - Jocko - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:19 am:

    I believe that leg belongs to Eileen (pronounced “I lean”)


  26. - clec dcn - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:26 am:

    3 People killed in Normal and 3 injured that is not good news this am and we don’t get that around here. I wonder?


  27. - Sayitaintso - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:35 am:

    There are times when you know you probably shouldn’t laugh so hard at a “borderline” joke? 47th, good work, and thank goodness we aren’t fully gagged and bound by the fun police.


  28. - Keyrock - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:36 am:

    Now they’ll have to redraw the House districts again.


  29. - Skeptic - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:42 am:

    “Where is the rest of the lamp?” Somebody used up all of the glue. On purpose.


  30. - Southern - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 10:17 am:

    I’m starting to see Bailey and Devore signs in local neighborhoods.


  31. - Give Me A Break - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 10:20 am:

    It’s a major award.


  32. - Bruce( no not him) - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 10:32 am:

    It shouldn’t be about the leg. Where is the missing rest of him?


  33. - Amalia - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 10:34 am:

    Reminder to watch the ongoing Paralympics. USA doing getting lots of medals.


  34. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 11:29 am:

    Someone got a little fired up doing the hokey pokey.


  35. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 11:47 am:

    I had forgotten about this, but a movie about Dennis Rodman’s Vegas adventures during the ‘98 NBA Finals is forthcoming:

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/bulls/2021/8/31/22650441/dennis-rodman-movie-las-vegas-1998-nba-finals-bulls-jazz-lord-miller


  36. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 11:50 am:

    Unless I missed it in yesterday’s comments, I finish reading the Rodman movie story and it’s followed by one about some fans fighting in the stands at Sunday’s Sox blowout of the Cubs:

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/2021/8/30/22648791/fight-bleachers-cubs-white-sox-game


  37. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 11:55 am:

    ===some fans fighting in the stands===


  38. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 11:59 am:

    ==The first fight was iconic because a Cubs fan yelled something racist and people in the section literally bullied him until he left==

    Was the shirtless guy in the fight the one that yelled the racist stuff?


  39. - FormerParatrooper - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 12:17 pm:

    Dirty nasty leg.


  40. - Amalia - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 12:27 pm:

    oh wow, the white guy whose shirt game off and was shirtless for the rest of the fighting yelled something racist,??? probably at the guy in the black shorts and white shirt…who is a Black man…and who climbed up the bleachers towards racist Cub guy, did not touch him, but was attacked by the racist guy. the fight went on for a long time.


  41. - Huh? - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:51 pm:

    Been standing here a long time. Hitchhiking is tough without a thumb


  42. - Rabble - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:53 pm:

    “Kicked me to the curb.”


  43. - Dotnonymous - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 3:35 pm:

    Eileen nearly caused a spit take.


  44. - Huh? - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 3:41 pm:

    Can you help me out, I need some sun screen on my leg.
