Dan Collins says he was the first person to wear a “SCOAMF” T-shirt to a Tea Party rally:

Dan says Ace of Spades HQ readers will know what this acronym means.


  • Bob Belvedere

    Dan’s loooookin’ goood.

  • FishFearMe

    Does Ace get royalties from T-shirt sales? Just askin’. ūüôā

  • JD777

    Geeze, there’s even a website..

  • Beto Ochoa

    Actually, he’s one of the most successful criminals in all human history.

    Hey Dan! Lookin good!

    Everyone should hit that link. Now that the zero has been properly characterized the people need to know.

    That shirt looks homemade, which raises the obvious question is anyone selling them?

    Last I checked SCOAMF already had 4 entries on Urban Dictionary.¬† It’s traveled a lot further than AoSHQ.¬† Saw a (photoshopped) new Obama book, witht that as the title (spelled out).¬† Let’s push this.¬† Nothing works better than mocking the Left.

  • Dianna Deeley

    It’s certainly popular, and I couldn’t agree more! The Morons seem to have been early adopters, if not the originators; Ace’s place was where I first encountered it.

    But we have to find a substitute for “cluster****”, for those who don’t like to use foul language, and that hasn’t happened, yet.

    “But we have to find a substitute for “cluster****””

    How about “Charlie Foxtrot”?

  • Dianna Deeley

    Then we need to add an “F”, and we already have one.

    It’s still funny and true!

  • McGehee

    In most acronymic usages of erstwhile “bad words” I will substitute “stuff” for “shit” and “fouled” for “fucked.”

    I think in this instance “catastrophe” would work.

  • FishFearMe

    In place of the F word, how about FiretrUCK?

  • Beto Ochoa

    It’s the “Come Hither” look and mincing posture.

    Sometimes the curse words are the only way to properly convey a thought.

    Exactly.¬†¬†Like Twain said, “When angry, count to four.¬† When very angry, swear.”

    With them threatening war and taking people out, I think it’s OK for the blue-haired laidies and grey-beards to pronounce the actual words clear and proud.

    Just say “Scum Foatus” (SCOAMFOTUS)

  • Anonymous

    I forget which Moron came up with the phrase.¬† He/She has been using it for a long time now, but it started catching on.¬† Even beating out “JEF,” which is so much easier to type.¬† Go figure.

    I’m guessing Ace came up with SCOAMFOTUS, though.

  • ThePaganTemple

    Or we can stick to that old reliable F***. As though only the people that don’t mind the word will know what the hell it means.

  • ThePaganTemple

    You know what tickles the shit out of me? People saying crap like “Kramer from Seinfeld called some guy the N word”. As though if you came right out and said it in the context of relaying the information it would be tantamount to you joining in the slur. So childish its almost pathetic.

  • Ima Wurdibitsch

    Dan is hot. I’m just sayin’. Nice shirt.

  • Adjoran

    What drives the nail in the coffin of an incumbent’s campaign is when he becomes a joke.¬† Pass it on!

    It’s also nice to see Dan spared no expense in producing his shirt, even if he did steal the design.¬†

  • Serr8d

    Here’s some SCOAMF imagery.

    And of course the obligatory Twitter hashtag #SCOAMF.
