Rule 5 Sunday: The Consolations Of The Elbows

Normally on weekends when I’m away from the keyboard due to social obligations and/or work, I do the FMJRA first and leave the Rule 5 post for whenever I can get to it -on one particularly horrible occasion, Wednesday. After last night’s excruciating eighteen-inning playoff game between the Nationals and Giants, though (which my Nationals managed to lose) the last thing I want to do tonight after a satisfying day of watching people die bloodily on Game of Thrones is fight with Excel so I can return everyone’s linky-love from last week. Nope. I’m going with Rule 5.


As usual, avoid clicking on the following links when and where you shouldn’t.

Valley of the Shadow rattles the tip jar with the help of Mila Starfyre, Randy’s Roundtable returns with Michea Crawford, and Goodstuff offsets the depressing news from Bangkok with Kate Mara, among others. Ninety Miles from Tyranny checks in with Morning Mistress, Cameltoe, and Girls with Guns; at Animal Magnetism, it’s Rule Five Friday and the Saturday Gingermageddon. Blackmailers Don’t Shoot chips in with Rule Five Monday with Anna Kendrick and Is Jennifer Lawrence Dating  A Washed-Up Rock Star? while First Street Journal has the theoretically unpleasant Basic Training and Ebola Rant.

EBL’s herd this week includes clueless State Department flack Marie Harf and Redskins cheerleaders.

At A View from the Beach, it’s Keeley HazellEels Hitch a Ride Up the River (bet’cha wonder how this got here), Black Chick Covers White ChickThe Thrill is Gone . . .“Dark Side of the Moon”,  In Keeping with the Nautical ThemeNow I’m Going to Watch RugbyHe Gets a Fancy Safety Suit . . ., and A Waste of Good Beer!

From Soylent Siberia, it’s your morning coffee creamer, and after that the links are all garbled. Sorry ’bout that.

Proof Positive’s Friday Night Babe is Felicity Jones, his Vintage Babe is Susan Denberg, Sex in Advertising is covered by the Mile High Club, and of course there’s the obligatory 49ers cheerleader. At Dustbury, it’s Timi Yuro and Karolina Tyminska.

Thanks to everyone for their linkagery! Deadline to submit links to the Rule 5 Wombat mailbox for next week’s Rule 5 Sunday is midnight on Saturday, October 11.

    How ’bout them Ole Miss Rebels? Not to mention the Bulldogs.

    Those boys from Mississippi sure did mess up the college football universe this weekend.

    War Eagle!!!

    Say, did anyone catch the score in that Alabama game?

    Why, yes, I did catch that final score. But since RSM is the professional journalist you should ask him to fact-check that score…

    Breaking Rule 5 News!

    Opened another can of Rule 5 Google Juice!

    I just received enough points on Imgur to create a tag

    The Imgur folks are like the Pinterest folks. Therefore, only post “gentleman boner” type images

    Imgur hates HTML and linking – the only good place to post links is in the second layer of the comments

    Yes, I think we should all make inquiries.
