Are you ready for some Football Award

RUSSRow, row, row your longboat,
Gently up the Zuider Zee,
Merrily, merrily merrily, merrily,
Life is but a series of raids, with the concomitant pillaging, rape, slaughter, burning and more rape, followed by centuries of historical analysis, culminating in the inevitable use of your likeness and reputation by a group of overpaid tight-pants-wearing pigskin tossers. Which seems more like a nightmare than an actual dream.

Rodney’s Bottom of The Barrel

“Whaddya mean you used Elmer’s Glue?

The new icecream boat traversed the New York Harbor all summer selling icecream to boaters and tourists on the shore. But two months of having to listen to “Turkey in the Straw” was enough and a US Naval destroyer was called in to blow them out of the water.


Bloomberg: “NYC heard your demands, but whattinthehell are lefsa and lutefisk?”

Randy Moss had missed the part of the contract where it was the Vikings responsibility to deliver him to Oakland and he subsequently missed the entire 2005 NFL season.

The Monday contest has already started.

  1. Another belated entry inspired by the bottom of the bottom of the barrel… Say is Randy Moss wearing a Viking uniform or a Raider uniform? Oh I’m so confused.

  2. bullwinkle says:

  3. Bithead says:

  4. Rodney Dill says:
