Rule 5 Tuesday: Birthday Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho As fate would have it, Stacy, Smitty and I were all born within about a week of each other, which probably means something to astrologers, Kabbalists, numerologists, and other Democrats, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s just a happy coincidence. It’s also an opportunity to post a pics of a […]

Late Night With Rule 5 Sunday: Tax Loopholes Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho Lots of ginned-up controversy over Trump’s taxes this weekend, and from what I’ve seen on social media, the basic argument seems to be “My credits/deductions are good and right, but yours are bad and wrong!” which of course is nonsense, but this is the level to which the media have sunk […]

No, Miss Universe Can’t Be 170 Pounds

Rule 5 Monday

— compiled by Wombat-socho It was one of those weekends when there was too much to do and not enough time to do it in, so you get Rule 5 Sunday on a Monday instead. Since the NFL season kicked off yesterday amid much controversy over players failing to stand for the anthem and Gutless […]

Rule Five Sunday: Labor Day Weekend Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho Back on track this week, more or less. Today’s appetizer is Rita Wilson, actress, singer, and wife of Tom Hanks. She put out an album called AM/FM back in 2012 which was mostly covers of old classics and included yesterday’s FMJRA theme song. Enjoy. Better late than never, some sound advice […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Viva Los Lobos!

— compiled by Wombat-socho This week’s appetizer is courtesy of the University of New Mexico Lobos Dance Team. You know what the standard disclaimer is by now. Goodstuff leads off with a rainy season twofer this week: Miss Nerdy Pageants and Patricia Velazquez, followed by Ninety Miles from Tyranny with Hot Pick of the Late […]
