Though it's never wise to bring the workplace onto one's personal blog, the deleted post I want to see is: Candidates for "Worst Painting In The National Gallery of Art" presented.

Toriko said...

I would have liked to see either the gay-themed Tad Dorgan or the ugly tour bus.

Muscato said...

I mourn the loss of any post about upholstery, but also have to agree with Toriko - gay-themed Dorgan?

Peteykins said...

Yeah, I'll get back to that gay Tad cartoon. It's pretty surprising.

Any of the last 3 would work for me, plus Michael Steele's interpretive mime translator.

HRH King Friday XIII, Ret. said...

There's so many I'd love to see... Michael Steele's interpretive mine, Lybian menswhere, and Santorum's merchandise rank my tops.

Peteykins said...

Well... the moment has pretty much passed for the Michael Steele idea. The Santorum merchandise ended up being too boring to be funny, and I can't remember at all what inspired most of the others.

The "vandalism nostalgia" post will almost certainly be revisited. In fact, I have two great vandalism stories to tell. Unfortunately, both are rather incriminating.

"Post about how much I hate Spencer Ackerman" -- wish I'd seen this one from PSP, a 21st century luminary and master of the American language... Few are as vulgar and illiterate as Ackerman.

Peteykins said...

Haw, anonymous, I'm really pleased that somebody commented positively on that. I think Ackerman and Matt Yglesias have become my two least favorite "liberal" bloggers. But I found peace by just completely avoiding them.

Lately I'm tempted to write a post titled "Why I Hate Josh Marshall", because he just gets worse and worse and worse with each passing year.

choff said...

Whatever happened to Congressional Spouse?

ButchPansy said...

All roads do lead to Brian Eno.

dinthebeast said...

Ooo! Ooo! Can I tell a vandalism incrimination story? When they tore down the Central Freeway in SF, my friend B. lived just up the hill from the demolition on Fell St. So the day they closed it, he walked down the hill and sprayed "welcome to hell" on the concrete barricade.
The next morning at work, at a customer's house, B. sees his handiwork on the front page of the Chronicle, and asks the customer if he could have her copy. She asked him "Did you do that, young man?" to which B. replied "I have no knowledge of any illegal activity."

I would like Tad Dorgan, and any posts that you describe using the word 'strangeness,' pretty please with sugar on top!

Anonymous said...

Please post candidates for "worst painting in the National Art Gallery".

Peteykins said...

OK, you guys, this is "posts I didn't post" for good reasons! This is not a request list.

Anonymous said...

HA!!HA!!@ request list. I was going to jump in with a request, but I know, so much time has passed, the moments are gone.

I'm happy to see newer posts from you, no matter what.

A day late and unwanted, but the hell with it, I'm casting my votes:

Nat'l Gallery
Riverdale
Tropicana o.j.
Jim Woodring
Tad Dorgan

and since I'm implicated in at least one of your vandalism stories, I'll go with Statute of Limitations for the daily double.
Remeber that one time in Tucson downtown, in broad daylight when we -- oh, nevermind.

Tease, tease, tease, Peteykins. Especially with summaries like "I'm Sorry, You Can't Come In. Your Boots Clearly Have Self-Esteem Issues."

The emotional communication potential of footwear is vastly under-reported. You could have done the world a service.
