Harriette Gives Em Up

Yes, it's true.  Megan is making Harry get rid of his guns.  The esteemed British publication Page Six reported:

Prince Harry has reportedly sold his prized handmade rifles worth more than $60,000 after he quit hunting out of respect for his actress wife Meghan Markle.

Harry, 35, has unloaded the two weapons — from a British gunmaker Purdey — by selling them to another hunter in a private deal, according to The Sun.

The former royal, who learned to hunt as a child, has not joined his colleagues at recent game shooting events and is believed to have quit hunting altogether due to Markle’s opposition to the practice.

Harry sold the guns five months ago, a friend of the anonymous buyer told the paper. Rest of article.
To think I watched Cromwell last week.  Comic Bridget Phetasy had a field day with the news.  Watch the video til the end. ;-)



And of course, that song at the end gives me an excuse to include this video as well.

500 plus years of Inbreeding within that "royal family" has made every one of em'crazy as shit.

The Queen remains the only one with an ounce of sense.

I-Do remorse, much Harry? Yoko Markle keeps his balls in a jar by the door.

Never marry a woman who makes you give up fishing, hunting or your guns.

Meghan Markle is a snake! And Harry is a dim bulb. They deserve each other. They gave up a life of leisure as royals in the UK to be irrelevant squatters in a tacky McMansion in LA. I don’t think Harry knows what hit him.

I don't think 'in-breeding' is the correct term for Harry's issues. The Q lost control when she stopped the practice of screening the boys' dates.

Grew up in Leeds England. Came here to play college soccer in 1996. I've never understood why Americans are so obsessed with the Royal family. People back home see them as leeches and spoiled babies. At least Americans accept them and it's extremely odd.

Am I the only person who does not care one bit about British royalty or what they do?

My mama taught me early in life that the royal families are no better than ours---just richer.

Harry has learned THE most important rule:

Happy wife, happy life.

A man can have a happy wife and still be unhappy. But the reverse is not true. If your wife is unhappy, you will be unhappy. Always. There is no exception to the rule.

Knowing and living by that rule is the secret to every happy marriage.

IT must be fantastic. Purdy shotguns and rifles are fine works of art.

7:19 You are correct but methinks this one will never be happy.

@ 6:48, you and me both. I'm a 46 year-old American, and I've never understood why so many of my fellow citizens are obsessed with the BRITISH royal family. I could give 2 shits about them and their lives. I wish no ill will on them, but what they do is completely insignificant in my eyes.

8:22 am Purdy is a paint brush and Purdey is a rifle.

As for the rest of you, Harry might have agreed, as someone who suffered from depression and whose mother apparently did as well, that if their child inherits that predisposition, it might be good not to have guns in the house.

Or, as in my household, there was an accidental discharge with a rifle that could have turned out badly. We agreed...no more weapons in the house.

As for me, it's entirely their business and I don't know why, as long as they aren't harming others, everyone doesn't mind their own business. Why pick on them?...their lives, their business.

High school ...this is for the " never left high school" crowd.

No, you are not the only one. There are at least two of us.

What's the big deal, some guys wear panties and have nose rings because the wife wants them to.

Harry is an adult. If he wanted to he could have told her that his guns do not affect their marriage, and to get over it. I know that Harry understands (with his military background) that guns don't kill people - stupid people holding guns kill people.

And I don't think Harry is stupid. After all, he finally found a way to escape the royals.

9:07, there is no such thing as an accidental discharge. They are negligent discharges. A rifle is a machine that requires several deliberate actions to make it fire. Make it fire. They don't do it on their own. One must load, close the action, remove the safety, and apply sufficient pressure to the trigger to have it fire. That's why commonly accepted safety rules adopted by both the military and the civilian world advise treating them like they're loaded, not pointing them at anything you don't intend to destroy, keeping your finger off the trigger until you're ready to fire, and not removing a safety until you're ready to fire. Your 'accidental discharge' required ignoring three of those. That is the very definition of negligence, hence the phrase negligent discharge. I am truly thankful it wasn't pointed such that someone was harmed. You made the right choice in giving them up.

I had a strong feeling that chick was gonna be trouble.......One day, Harry's gonna look back and think, "WTF did I do?"

Possibly, it should be pointed-out, that what Americans ACTUALLY think and feel, and what America's media TELLS US TO think and feel, are not the same. At every religion-based holiday, the Pope is shown as presiding over that holiday. One would assume, given what one is shown on television, that the Pontiff is accepted as the Spiritual Leader of all Americans. This could not be farther from the truth. It's one example of our media deliberately (and fairly consistently) showing the opposite of the truth.

We were told, by the MSM, that Donald Trump was just terrible - the worst monster who ever crawled the Earth. Based solely on his demonization by Big Media, most of us concluded that he must be pretty great. Anybody hated by Rachel Madcow, Piers Morgan, and Miguel Almaguer.... well... how could we go wrong with Donald, if THEY hate him? And their continued demonization of Donald, tells us that he must be doing a pretty-damn-good job.

When wondering whether there's any substance to Covid-19's supposed "deadliness", all we have to do is tune in to NBC, where Lester Holt, with lights positioned to make his eyes appear filled with tears, delivers his never-ending Covid-19 schmalzbucket. That's all it takes, for us to KNOW it's a bunch'a hooey (being pushed by bad people with evil motives).

Same with the "Royal Family". We feel about them, the same way YOU do. But Big Media SHOWS the opposite of the truth. "Our" media want us to accept Princess Meggin (or Ditchess Jeggings, or whatever her name is) as a real-life Disney Princess, being whisked off in a Powder Blue battery-powered Malibu Barbie Jaguar. But we just see her as an opportunistic skank, who caught the feeble-minded son of a bunch of troublemaking GERMANS who somehow usurped Great Britain's Throne.

6:48, Americans are obsessed with the spoiled leeches Royal family for the same ignorant reasons they are obsessed with the spoiled leeches Kennedy family here in the US; because they’re sheep too dumb and lazy to study.

Ted Kennedy had to be dead for the better part of a decade before someone had the guts to do a movie about Chappaquiddick. How sad is it that so many Americans were totally unaware of this and his other crimes.

Joe was a Nazi sympathizer and Jack was a wimp that should have court martialed after his errors led to the sinking of PT 109 but ole Joe with the help of a corrupt media and of course Hollywood turned Jack into a hero that would become Prez.

To answer your question, maybe it’s because we teach our daughters from a very young age to believe in fairy tales and princes; and then never teach them to grow up.

Standing ovation to @2:13. That was the dead center of the bullseye.

He only had two guns?

12:43 pm In this instance, it was a military issued weapon while in service that was supposed to be unloaded. It turned out it was loaded and that it was fortunately a blank. It was a freak fall. I knock it over by accident and still am unclear why that caused it to discharge.

The lesson was not to trust even one's superiors when it comes to weapons. Look for yourself. And, for me to look where I'm going as something may be there that usually isn't.

This...is really and truly a discussion? Oh, my word, we have seriously degenerated, even by the (low) standards of this yabba-dabba-doo blog.

But, to be charitable...we are all at home, becoming increasingly restless and bored, and if the continuing saga of those two dull people provide a bit of amusement, well, then their existence on this planet is justified.

Meghan Markle seems pretty grabby, and Harry seems pretty stupid (and seditious) to have tried to introduce a black chick into the Windsor/Mountbatten family. But, who really cares? Royals have done idiotic things for centuries.

Look at what England has become, since the decline of the monarchy. It will only get worse...

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
