Times-Standard says ‘playaing’ helps kids learn

We wonder if it works for reporters and copy editors.

Hope the oversight wasn’t related to this

  1. On an unrelated note, our good friend Boy Most Likely 2 has moved his entertaining blog to a new address: http://mostlikely2.wordpress.com/. Update those blog rolls, and stop by to give him some props. Hugs!!

  2. Yo, dawgs. You don’t understand. This is about teaching the next gen of gangstars to be playas. Ya know?

  3. Swell. Maybe lifting limits on pot cultivation will help.

  4. Damn. Somerville dead? I thought he’d be okay after the TS dropped their donut fund. Well. He seemed like a good enough guy. Course he was big enough to be named for an entire town. Still sad.

  5. A little playaing might have extended his life.

  6. Lame excuse. The dog ate my homework. My editor died from a myocardial infarction. Not that convincing. Did he take spell-check out with him?

  7. It’s pretty fucking tacky for the Journal to go with a story like this before his family has been notified. Thought they had the world’s best fucking journalist on staff (media raven) to show the rest of the media world how it’s supposed to be done.

    I think the world of Hank, but if they went with this story before family was notified I’m gonna put them on the prime target list.

  8. Point made, Humboldt Blue. There are some things in life more important than being first.

  9. Why doesn’t Neely ever lose that bewildered look on her face? It’s creepy. Very creepy.

  10. Tonight ’round the barbeque, I’ll put on 3 extra hot dogs and pour a splash of my 40 on the ground. You know, for my homey who couldn’t be here.

  11. I saw Bonnie come unglued once over some story she read in the ER and she looked twice as pissed and scary as the Hulk. You don’t want to piss her off. The David Banner side of Bonnie is more tolerable.

  12. But I guess being in office for 702 years can make a person edgy.

  13. Thanks for the updated Link Bugs! I was very sorry to read about Mr. Somerville.

    -boy

  14. Don’t make me laugh, Blue. Yours is the tackiest site in the local blogosphere. You’re going to put the Journal on your target list. Funny.

  15. Blue: I do appreciate the sentiment. News is news, though, and Rich was a reporter.

  16. Wait. How can a website be tackier than this one?

  17. When we were kids back in the good old days playing really did help us learn. Stick ball in the street dodging cars,pot holes and bullies has developed a keen sence in our adult years. We are pros at playing like we give a shit about the assholes who control our Bon Bon,John John,Mark Mark pathetic world. Sorry about Rich.

  18. Blue has a site?

  19. Met Somerville several times and had several conversations. Did not agree with him on many issues but he was pleasant enough. His ability to think was about 6 times higher than the usual morons at Heralds. Condolences to his family.

  20. Yes Rose, according to the swizzledick above I do, I believe it’s called http://www.dumbass.com.

    Poltroon thinks I’m a goddamned Humbug.

  21. Sheesh, I didn’t really think there was such a website.

  22. Good site Blue. Bet you wish it was yours.

  23. LOL! Blue! Who knew?

  24. So- I guess class and compassion arent big here in Humboldt when it comes to making comments?

    Someone lost their dad. Someone lost a husband and a friend, and some of these lovely people make jokes?

    Such a beautiful area, such ugly people!

  25. Actually no one lost their dad or their husband, but facts clearly aren’t your strength. Here’s my advice to a self-proclaimed newbie: Develop a little situational awareness. This is a live and let live kind of place. You can be a stick in the mud, and we can crack jokes about anything we want. If you don’t want to read them, you don’t have to. Ain’t it a great country?

  26. Really?

    They WHY do YOU get yer panties in a bunch over MY comments?

    When a loved one of yours passes, be sure and read all the ‘clever’ cracks about them you can find!
    Im sure you will really appreciate that.

  27. pla·ya (plī’ə) n.

    A nearly level area at the bottom of an undrained desert basin, sometimes temporarily covered with water.

    Pla·ya·ing (plī’ə’ing) v.

    To make level, as in an in the area at the bottom of an undrained desert basin; to temporarily cover with water. To bathe.

    So I have it on good authority that “playaing” is something akin to bathing. The T-S article and unfamiliar word is correct, but you fucktards don’t recognize good writing when you see it.

    Playaing, or bathing, keeps kids clean and fresh for learning. With all of the tragedy at the T-S, you asslickers need to lighten up.

  28. You roll into town and call people you’ve never met “ugly,” then accuse someone else of having their panties in a bind? Perfect. You ought to fit in nicely around here. One more asshole was exactly what we needed.

  29. Why would I go out of my way to read something that might bother me? It’s not like the shit’s being piped into our brains. Look away, turbo. You’ll feel better.

  30. Is this newbie person for real? Says hi, I’m new here, you people have no class or compassion, oh, and you’re ugly.

    And to think we’re not rolling out the red carpet on this one.

  31. How’s this for your next headline; ‘New arrival already a fucktard’?

  32. A fucktard with some seriously unresolved abandonment issues (although maybe that’s too long for a headline)

  33. With all of the tragedy at the T-S

    Other than having a newsroom filled with competent writers and reporters and generally all around good eggs who get paid shit and work in a windowless cell, what tragedy do you speak of?

    The death of Somerville? That’s not a tragedy, it’s a sad, untimely death, but hardly a tragedy.

    On another note, Republicans are still shitbirds who deserve our everlasting scorn and ridicule.

  34. Aww, Blue, you almost had me on your side there for JUST a minute and you had to go and throw that last line in there.

  35. “Is this newbie person for real? Says hi, I’m new here, you people have no class or compassion, oh, and you’re ugly.

    And to think we’re not rolling out the red carpet on this one.”

    Why did you assume I was talking about YOU?

    Just find it sad that someone has to make a ‘donut joke’ about someone who has just died, thats all. Go on hating me now……..

  36. Doesn’t matter who you’re talking about. Not exactly the most thoughtful way to welcome yourself to a new community.

  37. Heraldo must work at the Times-Standard LOL
    Lightening causes fires throughout Humboldt County (TS)
    Solstice lightening (heraldo)

  38. “Doesn’t matter who you’re talking about. Not exactly the most thoughtful way to welcome yourself to a new community.”

    And making jokes about someone dying IS ???

    Yeah…thats ‘thoughtful’

  39. If one wants P.C. run a muck, then go to “HERldo’s place” and watch the butterflys come out of the mouths of dipshits. (thanks R.R.,r.i.p.)

  40. Clearly you’re not only new, you’re also kind of stupid. We’re not making fun of your home town or the people therein. If you want to do that–please go home. If you don’t like what we do here–please go away. Clear enough, dipshit?

  41. “Clearly you’re not only new, you’re also kind of stupid. We’re not making fun of your home town or the people therein. If you want to do that–please go home. If you don’t like what we do here–please go away. Clear enough, dipshit?”

    My! What a thoughful comment, clearly showing what was soo wrong with my post!
    Im sorry, cause I know no one here WOULD EVER make fun of someone elses town, huh?

    I appreciate the ‘dipshit’ part too!, cause ya know- nothing drives a point home like writing as if you are 13 years old!

  42. Go ahead. Be dense. It’ll smooth your transition into reality.
