A spamming Wurf was recently spotted walking into a bar with a Trumpian. The Trumpian could not understand the dialect that the Wurfer was speaking, so he asked for a written note.

 

The Wurfer wrote him this note:  "spiem"

 

The Trump asked, "'speim' what does that mean?"

 

The Wurfer pointed to the menu, which included a choice for ham and eggs at the end of his finger:  "spiem"  he insisted.

 

Exasperated, the Trumpian blurted out "I still don't understand what you mean."

 

A Star Trek loving liberal at the bar explained:  "he means spam".

 

The wurfer nodded his head vigorously then pointed at the Trumpian's mouth and said "spiem".

 

Ok, maybe it is not that funny in the re-telling.  I guess you just had to be there.

  • Pup Dog: An innocent "li'l dog chile" puppy. One of the very few (cartoon) characters (in the Pogo comic strip) who walks on all fours, he frequently wanders off and gets lost. Being, as Pogo puts it, "'jus' a li'l ol' shirt-tail baby-size dog what don't talk good yet", he says only "Wurf!" and "Wurf wurf!", although for a time he repeats the non sequitur phrase "Poltergeists make up the principal type of spontaneous material manifestation."

This is an adaptation of a post I once read from a charming woman in Jamaica.  It was for a different forum, and I don’t remember all the words exactly as she wrote them. So some of this is original to me:

 

Welcome to the Future Timeline Discussion forum tour bus.  On this tour you will see many species of trolls and other interesting futurist specialists.  Some have yet to be cataloged by our classification experts.  We take no responsibility for their odd behavior. Please keep your hands inside the bus and do not feed the trolls.  We trust that this tour will better help you to understand the future.  However, please do not hold us liable if the experience causes severe depression or other mental health issues.  We hope that you enjoy your visit here today and will in the future come back to visit with us again soon.

We regret to inform our Wurf audience that we will soon be transferring certain operational parameters to another forum.  We hope that all Wurfian computers are up to handling the new parameters..  We do realize that many of our most loyal Wurfian readers have computers dating back to the 80s that have certain memory and processing issues. We do point out that many of these older computers cannot even read stuff in this forum and hope that Wurfians understand our need to keep up with the times.

 

 

We also find it very unfortunate that this transition has caused the prophet Exactly to point to it as a coming of the End Times.  While it is true that many historical records as contained in this thread may not survive the transition, we can assure you that we will continue to report on current events in the Land of the Wurfs, providing of course that certain moderators continue to indulge us in our whimsical longings...errrr...I mean in our determination to report the facts and nothing but the facts concerning Wurfian existence. 

 

Stay tuned for further details.

Umm, 'Wurfians' largely own Apple, Microsoft, and Intel, do they not? Ninja's may have refined and improved some of the technologies, but when it comes to innovation and paradigm shifts, they will still be looking to the top end Wurfians. Over 97 % of the world's inventions come from Wurfians. Those Pandas can build our TV's, computers and Iphones, but Wurfians will be the ones crafting the next level. Oh, and as for the grizzly bears, they will remain largely end users of technology, at least for those with IQ's above 80 who have figured out how to use it.

Live from the Land of the Wurfs, it’s the end of the world!

 

(Brought to you by Bayered Aspirinstuff.  If  you think you've got headaches, our product may be right for you).

 

https://thebulletin....d-of-the-world/

 

Introduction:

 

(Bulletin of Atomic Scientists) “Saturday Night Live” cast members Colin Jost and Michael Che got some notice for taking up the recent IPCC report on climate change during their regular “Weekend Update” segment this week.

 

Excerpts from the YouTube clip:

 

Colin Jost: “We don’t really worry about climate change because it’s too overwhelming, and we’re already in too deep. It’s like if you owe your bookie $1,000, you’re like, ‘oh yeah, I gotta pay this dude back.’ But if you owe your bookie $1 million, you’re like, ‘I guess I’m just gonna die.’”

 

Michael Che: “I keep asking myself why don’t I care about this? Don’t get me wrong, I 100 percent believe in climate change, yet I’m willing to do absolutely nothing about it… I think it’s because they keep telling us we’re gonna lose everything, and nobody cares about everything, people only care about somethings. Like, if Fox News reported that in 2030 climate change was going to take away all the Confederate statues, there’d be recycling bins outside every Cracker Barrel and Dick’s Sporting Goods. … You want white women to care about the environment? Tell them if they don’t do something about climate change, we’re going lose all the yarn. White women love yarn. No more hats, no more scarves, no more of those ridiculous socks you knit for your dog.”

LOL, Willie Nelson and Keith Richards were leftists themselves. If they are worried about their legacy, or even what life will be like in old age, you reap what you sow. That being said, it at least appears like Willie enjoyed himself along the way.

Our rival News Thump is at it again.

 

Prime Minister delays Brexit deal vote until she’s finished writing her CV

 

https://newsthump.co...writing-her-cv/

 

Introduction:

 

(News Thump) Theresa May hasn’t finished polishing her Curriculum Vitae yet, and will be delaying the Brexit vote until she does.

 

Knowing damn well that she’s going to be out of a job roughly six seconds after John Bercow bellows “the nays have it”, the Prime Minister wants to make sure she looks as attractive as possible to future employers.

 

Mrs May’s secretary, Simon Williams, said, “Yes, of course men can be secretaries, you judgmental bastard.

 

“Anyway…yes, Theresa is very keen for her CV to be as impressive as possible. She’s covered it in pink glitter and everything.

 

“The ‘Employment History’ section is proving a little tricky as she’d rather not talk about her time as Home Secretary or her time as Prime Minister, so she’s just put ‘gap year’ between the years 2010 and 2018

Why Are Minions So Popular?

 

http://www.festive.c...ons-so-popular/

 

Introduction:

 

(Festive) The Minions are probably the trendiest fictional yellow creatures nowadays. Introduced in the successful animated film, Despicable Me, as Gru’s loyal workers, the cheeky little creatures, created to serve evil villains, stole the show from the human characters. The Minions immediately became the iconic and lucrative figures of the Universal cinematographic production. This outstanding popularity urged the creators of Despicable Me to give the cute yellow guys a subplot in the second opus. Also, they were heavily used in videos and other marketing campaigns to promote the motion picture. In June 2015, the Minions got their own film, which was a great success!

 

The Minions, revealing the origins of the yellow beings wearing huge goggles and constantly craving bananas, is now the 2nd highest-grossing animated film of all time, just after Frozen. The Minions have become true idols in popular culture. Not only do they feature in video games, they also appear on clothes, fast-food menus, bags, and comics. Whilst the amusing creatures are highly appreciated by children, they are also liked by adults who playfully enjoy dressing like them. This popularity across the world and generations has several reasons;

Classifying Wurfians

 

https://gunaxin.com/...sifying-midgets

 

Introduction:

(Gunaxin) It occurred to me while working on my list of Midget actors, that there are many different types of midgets (errrr Little People) in television and film. It also occurred to me that these little guys typically appear in packs. I guess when you are that small, there is strength in numbers. So this article is an attempt to try to wrap my hands around all of the types of little people. I don’t claim to be an uber movie dork, understanding all of the different races, and their physiological differences, so go easy on me with your critiques.

 

We’ll start simple with Dwarfs. Apparently a Dwarf is a legendary creature, and “little people” are real people with a medical condition called “dwarfism”. Seems like semantics to me, so we’re just going to call them midgets, because no matter what, they are going to be mad at us. At least there aren’t very many of them, and they’re really small. The most famous Dwarfs are those seven lucky fellas that get to hang out with Snow White. However Dwarfs and Dwarves (who knows what the hell the difference is) also appear in middle earth in such contexts as Lord of the Rings, Warcraft, Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons. This is where all of the dorks swoop in and tell me how stupid I am. Essentially these guys are little, tend to have beards, and for some reason carry hand tools of various types.

 

From here I guess this is a good time to move on to Hobbits, which are apparently just a figment of J.R.R. Tolkein’s imagination. From Wikipedia, “In J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium, Hobbits are a diminutive race that inhabit the lands of Middle-earth. Known as “Halflings” to most and “Periannath” by the Elves, the word “Hobbit” is derived from the name “Holbytlan” which means “hole-dwellers” in the tongue of the Rohirrim”. Ever wondered if there was a list of all of the Hobbits? Yeah, there is.

 

This of course brings us to Elves, which in Tolkein’s world aren’t exactly midgets, so we’ll focus on the other type of elves instead, Santa’s elves.

I've heard from friends that it's actually a Thump/Claus ticket. They're running together as independents.
