Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 Presents!

This Week’s Picks,

This week we feature two guest game pickers: Our own Ranchie (The secret identity of the Ronnie Rayguns owner) and the King of Calypso, the man "the Man" is trying to hold back, Looney Louis himself.

Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 says, the Hippo’s Ass can not be held liable for what these two predict or the words we have put in the mouth of both Ranchie or Louis F:

First Game Dirty Diapers vs Poker Dawgs

Ranchie: Dawgs are licking their wound. No healthy QB and no Moss equals a scary week to be a gambling pooch. Prediction: Diapers win in a blow out; 125-85.

Louis: I had a vision-like experience climbing a mountain, on the top of which is a temple to the Mexo-American Christ figure, Ketso Quato. And one of these little UFOs came over that mountain and I was signaled from a group of persons to come. And I was beamed up into that small vehicle and carried to a larger vehicle, where I heard the voice of my leader and teacher, the Honorable Elijah Mohammed, saying these words to me: Dawgs by 2

Ronnie Ray Guns versus Thong Song.

Ranchie: With Alexander the Great on a bye week and a humbled Culpepper, Thong will likely be singing a sad song this week. Prediction: RayGuns take the season series from TS; 112-102.

Louis: 6,000 years ago, an evil scientist named Yacob, a black scientist, created the white man, therefore Culpepper will be victorious. Thong Song by 7

Super Bowel Movement versus Darth Portnoy's Revenge.

Ranchie Is this the week that DPR notches his first win? Not this week. Sorry. Prediction: SBM wins 80-22.

Louis: The demise of the once great team of Darth Portnoy’s Revenge is one that can be blamed on the government. THEY injured DPR’s players, THEY made him miss a bye week lineup, THEY blew up the levees, now the levees are dry. An you think those good ol’boys drinking whiskey and rye are saying this will be the day they’ll die? Hell no! This is the day SBM dies! DPR in their first win.

The Luke Sky Augers versus Loonies on the Grass

Ranchie: Peyton and Harrison hook up for 7 TDs this week. The commish rewards each touchdown with a bonus point for being a new NFL record. LSA still tries to find the force. Prediction: Loonies roll 104-77

Louis: Luke Sky Augers is almost like a UFO thing. I like that. Luke’s Father was really James Earl Jones. Sky Augers by 14.

UPSET OF THE WEEK: Pigs in Training versus Beastie Tool of Rage.

Ranchie: PIT owner Brian is still distracted by his love/hate relationship with his best man. "He beats me like Ike on Tina, yet plans one heck of a Stag Party?!" Prediction: BTR makes a move for 500; 97-93.

Louis: Why did the Pig cross the road you ask? The road, you see, represents the black man. The Pig "crossed" the black man in order to trample him and keep him down. What does this have to do with this game? The Hell if I know! I don’t like the Pigs! RAGE my brothers, RAGE!!!

Refrigerator Magnet Item of the Week:

This item comes from a reader in Oklahoma who writes:

Next Week!

Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 takes a few days off (maybe) to do his part against the forthcoming super-ultra-pandemic (New and Improved!) avian flu. Tune in next week as the bird carcus count rises...

The Harsh Reality Must Be Setting In

Its not been two days since I, Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 took control of the Hippo's Ass and already we have someone beating down our doors trying to get an article published.

Super Lucky Crazy Moneky #8 says this is all going according to plan. The former editor of the HA, a man I like to call Scott Trotsky said that the day someone submitted an article to the HA would be the day monkeys fly outta his ass. Well Comrades, the day is almost here. Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 sees a future bright with submissions submitted to force this monkey into submission.

A Very Special Guest was supposed to be here today to make his picks of this week's losers, but he's tied up at the moment trying to prove "The Man" blew up the levees in New Orleans. So Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 is going to put off our Calypso friend till tomorrow.

Meanwhile... back at the Ranch.

A Kessler's Moment

$500 for Playoff Tickets
$11.50 for two Hotdogs and coke
$7 for souvenir “We’re # 1!” foam finger
Slipping your octogenarian wife some tongue while the whole world watches and not caring because you were once President of the United States. Priceless

Adding Insult to Injury

Loonies in the Grass owner Hal, is no longer scratching his head wondering if he made the right move to keep both Harrison and Mannin this year. The duo earned an NFL record 86 touchdown passes, breaking the mark set by San Francisco's Steve Young and Jerry Rice. Indianapolis won the game, 45-28.

Afterward, Harrison handed the ball to Manning who trotted to the sideline with it before the two perennial Pro Bowl selections debated how to slice it up.
"He had it, he gave it to me, I gave it back to him and he gave it back to me," Manning said. "We're going to try to cut it in half, that's the way it should be."

And Finally...

Super Lucky Crazy Moneky #8 says, "As if the world isn't crazy enough...

David Copperfield says he plans to impregnate a girl on stage - without even touching her.
Speaking to German magazine Galore, the illusionist rejected the theory that there were only seven different kinds of magic tricks.
He said: "Bull s**t! There is a great deal of new territory to conquer. In my next show I'm going to make a girl pregnant on stage."
He added: "Naturally it will be without sex. Everyone will be happy about it, but I'm not telling you any more."
The magician is currently on tour in Germany with his show, An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion.

Meanwhile, God issued a press release stating "Been there, done that!"

Finally Part II

This week's LOST is the last one for two weeks. Point to Ponder. Is Hurley's Boss and Locke's boss ONE IN THE SAME?!?!?!? Super Lucky Crazy Moneky #8 wonders if Monkeys will be featured on the show soon....

Enough is Enough!

Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 says…

What is with the Hippo’s Ass Blog? No updates for more than a week? Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 says enough! I have taken control of the HA Blog and will bend it to my will. HA HA!!

Can you really trust a guy with an 0 – 6 record. C’mon really? Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 says No! Can a person come back after posting at least 5 loses? I don’t think so. That’s’ like Sylvester Stalone coming back for a 6th Rocky movie. Its just doesn’t happen.

Meanwhile, the once Mediocre Darth Portnoy’s Revenge filed for Bankruptcy this week, just a few days after announcing lucrative bonuses for its upper management. But Magangement does have its supporters, as this Free Press Letter writer opines:

I am sick of listening to people complain about how much people in Delphi’s management make. They are paid salaries comparable to others at their level. Someone who makes $27 an hour to turn a screw is way overpaid and is leading to the destruction of the auto industry. Other manual laborers make nothing close to $27 an hour. The sooner more auto companies -- i.e., GM and Ford -- file for bankruptcy and reduce labor costs, the sooner Michigan's economy can begin to heal. (Actual Letter)

Signed, An Ayn Rand Groupie (My wording)

Ah those poor rich bastards. How will they ever afford to park Valet at Sommerset Mall when they go have cocktails and dinner at the Capital Grille. Yes, its a MALL! Not a "Collection". Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 says Let them eat Cake!

So, looking back at this year’s draft, was it wrong for the Team Owner Scott to draft not one, but THREE former teammates from his last year’s team? Plus he made his first pick of a Lions player. Cronyism? Unluckyness? Just pure stupidity? Scott should be promoted to picking a Supreme Court Justice. He’s as qualified as the rest.

Pigs in Training?

Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 has obtained photos of the training camp for Pigs in a Blanket Team Owner Brian.

Yes that's a man in a large pink pig boat.

Yes, this is going on the refrigerator. Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 says that joke will never grow old. In fact, Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 says he will market reminder magnets for all occasions:
  • Remember to turn the iron off magnet?
  • Remember to set your team line-up magnet?
  • Remember to take your birth-control pill magnet?
  • Remember to spay and neuter your cat or dog or child magnet?
  • Remember to hire Halliburton for all your big budget needs magnet? (SLCM#8 already sold this one...)


Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 will reveal his suprise guest to pick nexts week's losers! Hint: He was abducted by aliens, used to sing Calypso and wears a bow tie. Stumped? Super Lucky Crazy Monkey #8 says tune in tomorrow, bastards, for the answer!!!

The Other Cheek

Last week's top league scorer was Thong Song who nearly beat Pigs in Space by only using three players and scoring 155.5 points. Thong Song then threw in the rest of the team for good measure. It's sad when you score 133 in a game and still lose. Thong Song takes home the weekly $10 prize.

The Dirty Diapers, after leaving a load all over the upper deck of their opponent last week, ended up laying a messy one, losing to the Loonies on the Grass 74.5 to 96, and winning the Hippo's Ass Award for the week.

Other scores from around the league:

Darth Portnoy's Revenge 96
Luke SkyAuger Allstars 107
(Eli Manning finally decided to play ball this week. Unfortunately, he was on the bench)

SuperBowel Movement 140
Ronnie Rayguns 113.5
(Ben tried to set his spam blaster to kill, but Chris was far superior by overwhelming RR team website with a deluge of email directing everyone to the evattblog)

Beastie Tool of Rage 78
Poker Dawgs 122
(Apparently the lap dance from the Bride jumpstarted the Dawgs this week. Unfortunately, the Dawgs owner isn't the Groom.)

Monster Squid Finally Photographed

Scientists have finally caught on film a photo of a Giant Squid. Apparently, in addition to being a monster of the depth, these giants of the sea can also shoot red laser beams.

Sushi Restaurants around the globe rejoiced at the sight of the monster surume-ika. Godzilla was not available for comment.


I figure this is a good place to make my LOST observations. Yes, that WAS a logo or emblem on the tail of the Shark. A similar logo can be seen on Desmond's jumpsuit and on the containers of food in the pantry. Hmmmm Apollo bars. (Not the best screen shot, but its the only one I could find. The Logo is right here #)

Last night's episode was ok, but they should have made this and the season premiere into a two hour premiere. And what exactly did one snowman say to the other snowman?

Inviso text Answer: Do you smell carrots?

Ranch Memo Exposes Best Man

In a memo the Hippo's Ass obtained from a source at CBS News, it is revealed exactly what was going through the mind of the second best man, Ben "Ranchie" M. at the wedding of Mike R.

After a heartfelt and sometimes emotional tribute from the first best man Joe. V, it was time for Ranchie to take the Mike, but only after two speeches made by the Maid-of-honors who prepared their speeches on a napkin at Gator Jakes.

By this point in the evening, most of the crowd was too busy tying to figure why Dave yelled out "Ush". Most of the older people in the back of the room thought Dave said "Usher" and spent the next 20 minutes looking for the Hip Hop musician.

Meanwhile, Ben took the microphone and proceeded to compare Bernie and Mike's marriage to Ronald Reagans scandal marked presidency. The irony of the evening was that, as Ben talked of the great communicator, no one was really listening.

Here, in a HA exclusive, are the notes he used to deliver a speech that is now being called The Evil Empire Strikes Back.



Open with a Joke, something like "My fellow Wedding attendees. I have just signed legislation outlawing sternals. We begin dismantling the buffet in in five minutes."
Wait for laughter to subside (4 minutes should do)
Talk about great lessons Reagan has taught us.

1) Trees cause more pollution than automobiles. Which means, if you are caught smoking in the house, blame James Watt.
2) Government doesn't solve problems, it subsidizes them. Then go into how, if you and your wife are fighting about whether or not you can go fishing, sell her some weapons and give the proceeeds to the the Kesslernistas.
3) (At this point the audience will be hanging on my every word so go for the big finish) And always remember, when making love, always start the foreplay by saying "I hope you are a Republican!

(Wait for thunderous applause to subside before going into the audience to shake hands. )

Monday, September 26, 2005

The Hippo's Ass would like to congratulate Bernie and David on their Wedding, Saturday, September 24. David, also known as "Mike," is the co-owner of the Ronnie Rayguns. Bernadette, also known as "Rachel," and "David" are currently on their honeymoon, so we can make fun of the wedding all this week without them knowing.

The Hippo's Ass was lucky to get this photo of a note "Mike" passed one of his Best Men, "Ranchie", about 15 minutes into the ceremony:

Tomorrow, we get an inside look at the "Making of a Best Man Speech." The Hippo's Ass has obtained a copy of "Ranchie's" notes.

In other news, Don Adams passed away today. Growing up, my siblings and I loved to watch Get Smart so much that we named our two cats, 99 and 86.

I'm sure a legion of Angels is welcoming Mr. Adams into that big Cone of Silence in the sky.

Would your believe a barbershop quartet?

Would you believe a Cub Scout and a cowbell?

RIP Mr. Smart

The Hippos Ass
Vol. 6 Issue 3

Our Top Story

Breaking News. Last weekend was the last free weekend of one of the Blue Hippo League owners. Reports are still coming in from the Batchelor Party of Ronnie Rayguns co-owner Mike.

Through several different sources, this reporter for the Hippo’s Ass was able to piece together a timeline of the event. WARNING. This Issue is rate NWF (Not Wife Friendly)

Friday Night – A planned bar-hopping excursion failed as several of the guys only made it to one bar and stayed upstairs at Como’s in Fashionable Ferndale. One member, Joe M. did actually make it to several bars by himself then sat around downstairs at Como’s all evening getting drunk by himself and was later heard saying “There’s an upstairs?” Doctor Gary was alos rumored to have made an appearance. Doctor Gary will have a column in the next issue of the HA.

Saturday Morning – 10 am After a helpful helping of warm Boston Creams the crew headed for the North Country for a little male bonding.

1:45 – Ben calls Joe V “Todd” for the eighth time. We learn that Ben buys Mayo in bulk and eats it like ice cream.
2:30 pm – Gang decides to leave before the $1 draft prices are dropped to 50 cents during happy hour.
2:45 – Justin announces that we are almost there.
3:00 – We pass an Amish house where we once got one of them there turkeys for eatin.
3:15 – Crew arrives at cabin and half of the Apple Pucker is gone. Mike keeps repeating “It’s like a taste of Fall in your mouth” over and over again until someone finally laughs.
3:45 – Most of the guys decide to go play golf. Scott and Joe go fishing.
3:46 – Joe Catches huge ass Walleye. Bi-polar Scott Damns Joe then says he feel happy for him. It will be two hours till Scott catches something. Damn Karma.
8pm – Golfers return and someone breaks out the Goldslauger and the Red Bull.

This is the last thing Mike remembers.

(The timeline for the rest of the evening is sketchy at this point)

Sometime around 10:30 or so, Mike decides to go swimming. Naked.
10:35 – Lacking any more firewood, someone burns Mike's underwear in the fire.
10:45 or so - After a refreshing swim and some naked wrestling,that did little to sober him up, Mike decides to have a smoke. Not having any matches, Mike puts the cigarette in his mouth and falls face first into the fire.
10:46 Mike loses an eyebrow, but his cigarette is lit.
10:55 Mike covets the cigarettes he has been given and can be heard muttering "My precious, my precious."
11pm Mike threatens to beat up Samwise. “Wait, here’s an idea,” Mike says, “Why don’t YOU go to bed.” Somewhen along this time, Mike passes out for about 10 seconds in the neighbors yard.
11:30 – A $10 antique chair is broken which Mike says “Just bill me, dammit”.
Best Men Ben and Joe finally lay the beast down to sleep sometime between 11:30 and 1am when this reporter finally fell asleep after watching Family Guy on TV.


8:30 am Apparently Bob the Cat made the trip. The sunglasses that he lifted from Ben were found on the kitchen table while several attendees reported feeling Sunday morning like a cat shat in their mouths. Bob had no comment.
10 am. Mike leaves to head home to his new life, but takes a page out of his hero Ronnie Reagan’s playbook: If you can’t remember what happened you have nothing to apologize for.

The Hippo’s Ass will continue to bring you further news on this breaking story as it becomes available.

If you have a story from last weekend that you would like to report, please send it to the Hippo’s Ass

Poker Dawgs Declare this the Year of the Tight End.

Fresh from his loss to the Dirty Diapers, Poker Dawgs owner Todd prophesized that this might be the year of the Tight End. “Brian is 2-0 going into the third week of play. He has a frickin TE on his team.” Big Head Todd said that next year he was going to draft all TE. After his .5 point loss in the first week, Todd has a new found respect for the Tight End. “Even though the best TE is rated #27 on the list of Wide Receivers, they are #1 in my book.” When asked about his Tight End Draft strategy, O.P.P owner Brian stated, “I drafted Tight Ends? Who the *&#@ did that for me?” Other league owners had this to say, “Who the $%@& is Todd?”

League Owners Spice Up Their Teams

This year, not only is it about Tight Ends but now owners are looking to add Style and Flair to boost performance. That’s why the league hired one the host’s of TLC’s What Not To Wear to give some advice on Style and Flair. Clinton Kelly,

Its not who you have on your team, its how the other team says, Damn you got a nice Tight End. Here is some tips to add Flair and Style to your team:

Rhinestone thong athletic supporters. Centers never get any attention. When the QB puts his hands under your ass to get your ball, show him you care. Rhinestone thong athletic supporters provide the needed protection, yet show off your wild side.

Cashmere sweaters. Not only do they look and feel great, but they allow you to use the line, "Touch my chest, you fox, and tell me it isn't heaven. I dare you." (actual quote)

Fridge Magnet Item of the Week.

Hal, you’re doing a heck of a job!

League owners suggested that this year’s Commish “Brownie” Hal, should stick a copy of the league rules on his fridge after a string of missteps over the past two weeks that included:
* A lock out involving several teams.
* Misplaced players
* Confusion over the rules
* Misappropriation of league funds
* Leaky Dykes

“I don’t want to play the Blame Game,” said Hal. "I’m a problem solver. I solve problems." Hal, a team owner who specialized in head liners for Jeeps, denied rumors that he was in line to be president of the Arabian Horses Owners of America.

A Kessler’s Moment

Someone who is truly having a heck of a year fishing is our own Big Man Justin who caught his second consecutive fish up on Lake Lancer this past weekend. Truly a Kessler’s moment. (The fish is the one in the middle)

The Other Cheek

The Hippo’s Ass award last week goes to Beastie Tool of Rage. Hurricane force winds were blamed for the poor performance netting the team only 63 points. Team owner Mark E. was quoted as saying, “Screw this place, I’m moving to Galveston.”

Last week's Top team was the Canadian Dirty Diapers who left skid marks all over the Poker Dawgs. “That’s what Todd gets for not letting me listen to the Lions post game on the way home from the cabin,” said Justin.

Please visit the other blogs on our link list. Especially Evatt. Every time you visit his Blog, and angel gets his wings!

Word on the street is that there will be a Joe Van Greek column next week.

The Hippo’s Ass
September 9, 2005 Vol. 6 Issue 2

Our Top Story

Dirty Diapers Deny Doping

In a surprise move, Dirty Diapers owner Justin announced that he is withdrawing from this year’s Fall Fishing Trip.

After catching his first fish on the Spring Trip, the Dirty Diapers owner quietly withdrew under a cloud of suspicion. French Newspapers are printing a story that states Justin used performance enhancing drugs to land his fish.

“That’s an out right lie”, announced Justin, “maybe I soaked my bait overnight in a little WD40, who doesn’t. But I certainly did not use any drugs that I am aware of. Besides, I used my Boerichter to catch that fish. My Boerichter bends, but it never breaks.”

Justin then went on to further surprise the Blue Hippo League by announcing that he may move his team to Toronto. “The new stadium will be in full view of the CN tower.” Justin then showed a photo of the future site of the Dirty Diapers (or Double D) Stadium.

Hippo’s Ass Rated NWF

It has come to the attention of the Editor of the HA that many team owners are sharing the HA with their wives. While “we” at the Hippo’s Ass firmly believe in the Freedom of Information Act, “we” believe that much of what “we” write will probably be taken out of “context”. As a result, the HA will now carry a new rating of NWF (Not Wife Friendly)

There was also concern that significant others would be able to check your History files and see what your were looking at. Therefore, starting next week, the Hippos Ass will have a password encryption to allow viewing of the HA. An alternate site, The Hippos Happy Playhouse will feature “Wife Friendly” features that you can show the old ball and chain.

Timmy Chang to Thong Song

The suspense was killing most of the owners who cared to show up at last week’s draft. With the 18th and final pick for his team, Thong Song owner Dave took a inexcusable amount of time to make his selection.

The delay in the process upset this years Commish, Hal, who for the first time all evening, did something Commish-like and yelled at the Thong Song owner: “For the fifteen minutes now,you've just been droning on withnames. "Toby...Toby...Toby...Toby Wong...Toby Wong...Toby Chung Timmy Chang...fuckin Charlie Chan. I got Madonna's big boerichter outta my right ear, and Timmy Jap I-don't-know-what, outta my left. Pick already!”

Thong Song, in a bid to become the first all Asian Fantasy Football Team, picked Timmy Chang. Chang, temped by a Cowboy hat wearing Hootie, was on his way to the local Burger King, but had this to say about finally being drafted: "No more yankie my wankie. The Chang need food.”

Bob the Six-fingered Cat Fingers a Few Items

It was reported after last weeks Draft that Bob the Polydactyl cat of DPR Owner Scott had stolen a few items while owners were stuffing themselves with White Fat Dip. The thefts were discovered when a wife of one of the owners, was sneaking into history files and came across Bob Kitty Porno site called Polydactyl Pussies. The site features a live web cam feed of Bob the cat, wearing sunglasses and “trimming” himself with a pair of fingernail clippers.

Fridge Magnet Item of the Week.

Do you have unused Fridge Magnets? Is the front of your fridge blank, vacant of any shopping lists, cute pictures of friends’ kids, expired pizza coupons? Our new feature will give you helpful, useful informational items suitable for posting on your refrigerator…with a magnet...if you have one…even if it was home-made…with love.

This week’s Fridge Magnet Item:

Tiger, donkey. Whatever. A restaurant in northeastern China that advertised illegal tiger meat dishes was found instead to be selling donkey flesh _ marinated in tiger urine, a newspaper reported Thursday. The Hufulou restaurant, located beside the Heidaohezi tiger reserve near the city of Hailin, had advertised stir-fried tiger meat with chilies for $98, as well as liquor flavored with tiger bone for $74 a bottle, the China Daily reported.

A Kessler’s Moment

There is a little bit of New Orleans in many of us. I’ve been to the Big Easy at least six times, two of those with a few of you guys. I know others of you have been there also.

After watching the events of the last two weeks unfold, I couldn’t help but think back at some of those moments we shared. I tried to think of one moment that was a true Kessler’s moment, but alas, they are all worthy of a shot. I know in my heart that one day, in the not so distant future, New Orleans will be back.

For now, here are some of my favorite Kessler’s moments in a toast to New Orleans, Laissez faire bon temp roulez!

(Last Day of Spring Break)
Scott: According to this map, we could stop off in New Orleans on the way home.
Mark: Hey Brent, grab your stuff, we’re going to Bourban Street
Brent: Cool

Cabbage Fights in the Irish Quarter

They (Two middle aged women) just want to go to the house of Blues, I would have been in the house of hurt in the morning.

Sonny Bono in the St. Josephs Day Parade

It’s awful dark down this end of Bourban Street. I don’t see any girls in any of these bars….

Getting a mild case of food poisoning and having to stop off at each bar to take a crap. Oysters are supposed to make you horny, not make you shit.

Cute Girl: Wanna Dance?
Joe: No

Never insult the NOLA bartenders by telling them the Hurricane drinks are weak.

A Dennis Rodman Drag Queen

Hey, that looks like Mark Dziatciak….It is Mark!

Now THAT’S a unique smell.

I thought Van Wormer was with you?

Hey…I’m in a topless bar with my mother?!?!?!?

Joe: Can I have a Kiss?
Different Cute Girl :No
Joe: Then I guess a Fuck is out of the question.

Crawfish, Alligator Tail, Goblets of Beer, Oysters, and Dirty Rice for dinner.

Chickory Coffee and Beignets at Café du Monde in the morning.

We found you near the “other” end of Bourban Street talking to a very large masculine woman. She had an Adam’s apple.

The Other Cheek

Keeping the dream alive, Brian, owner of the FFL team When Pigs Fly, missed his fourth consecutive Fantasy Football Draft. He has not attended a draft since he had it at his apartment.

After a fine dinner that DPR owner Scott prepared at his house, and after paying Chris for the website registration, and watching Joe, Chris and Scott help with Phone-in draft picks, and soon after Joe kept track of all draft picks, and Ben contemplated his Boerichter… the league congratulated Hal on a fantastic start to being Commish this year. “I try,” said the humble Hal. The Loonies in the Grass owner is rumored to be the future head of FEMA.

DPR owner Scott refused to answer to rumors that he had a feather snatched from his mouth by a man in tights waving his two balls around. Chris couldn’t confirm the rumor because apparently he was getting Pressed by a wench at the time. There is also no truth to the rumor that the first incident will soon be available on DVD for the low low price of $9.99 plus S&H.

Friday, August 26, 2005 VOl 6 Issue 1

Special Pre-Draft Edition
Stalemate Stalls! Draft Date Decided!

The Blue Hippo Fantasy Football League has reached an agreement, finally, as to the when and where the Draft will be held this year.

The Draft will be held on Saturday, August 27th at 5pm at the home of DPR owner, Scott T.

The crisis arose when last year's Commish, Ben M., threatened to withhold cash rewards from last season until a new commish, and a date and place for this year's draft were chosen.

However, a source close to the Hippo's Ass has stated that Ben M. didn't have the money and spent it all on his addiction to Taco Bell's new Crunchwrap Supreme.

"Ben called me one night and started ranting how something was quote "good to go" when asked about last year's money", said the secret source who refused to be named on the fear of retaliation.

A memo from Detroit Mag Lite's Director of Information, Carl Rove stated that, "Mike R better shut his trap about last year's Commish." Mag Lite owner Brian denied his staff was involved in a money for police protection scam and also denied that police officers escorted last year's Commish around in a brand new Ford Taurus.

In other related new, all it took was a smirk from Hal to get elected as this year's BHFFL Commish. When asked about his "quiet" non-campaign for Commish, Hal said "Quote me as saying I was misquoted".

Meanwhile, The Beastie Tool of Rage accepted a offer from another state to move thier franchise to the east Coast. "Fantasy Football is big here in South Carolina" said team owner Mark E. "I thought he moved to North Carolina" said Loonies on the Grass owner Hal. Mark E. replied, "North Carolina, South Carolina, Nevada, its all pretty much the same here on the coast."

Ronnie Rayguns owner Ben came under fire recently when it was learned that he cried like a littel baby after reading the new Harry Potter book. The Six Sigma Black Belt quickly replied to the stinging tabloid story:

"I was reading the last chapter with my wife, and for pretty much the entire hour I was welling up, fighting it off. At one point she noticed and said it was ok to let it out, it's ok for men to cry. So when she brought me a sandwich with mayo (I'm allergic) I punched her in the stomach and choked her a little, thus re-establishing my manhood."

Bridge Hits the Mark

Duckett's Charge owner Mark A. stated last week that he is considering changing his team's name to the Grosse Ille Trolls.

"Trolls live under a bridge, and soon so shall I" said the disgruntled property owner.

A large multi lane super bridge to and from Canada will be built directly over his home. "The number 8 pier will be situated directly in the middle of our living room", said Mark.

Some are pleased with the new plans, Yaks owner Justin R. stated that he is currently negotiating with Mark to place a large trash bin on the roof of the house. "I'm hoping to soon have a place to throw my empty Tim Horton's coffee cups as I cross the bridge", said Justin.


Dear Dr. Gary,

Now that I am a father and my boy is quickly growing to be a man, I am concerned that he may not be playing for the right team if you know what I mean. What I'm trying to ask, is, Is My Child Becomming a Homosexual?

Signed, A BHFFL Dad who asked that his name be withheld,

Dear Dad,

Now that many of you are multiplying at the rate of Rabbits, this particular article is funny, useful AND TRUE!. Feel free to clip and post on your refrigerator using Brian's handy Save-The-Date-Magnet. It comes from the Focus on the Family Website.

It’s not uncommon for children to experience gender confusion during the elementary school years. Dr. Joseph Nicolosi reports, “In one study of 60 effeminate boys ages 4 to 11, 98 percent of them engaged in cross-dressing, and 83 percent said they wished they had been born a girl.”
Evidences of gender confusion or doubt in boys ages 5 to 11 may include:

1. A strong feeling that they are “different” from other boys.

2. A tendency to cry easily, be less athletic, and dislike the roughhousing that other boys enjoy.

3. A persistent preference to play female roles in make-believe plays.

4. A strong preference to spend time in the company of girls. (Ed: Who doesn't? Paging Hugh Hefner...)

5. A susceptibility to be bullied by other boys, who may tease them unmercifully and call them “queer,” “fag” and “gay.” (Ed: This describes every typical playground in the U.S.)

6. A tendency to walk, talk, dress and even “think” effeminately. (Ed: Brian, maybe you should be in the Thought Police)

If your boy resembles any of the above statements, you now need to know:

How to Prevent Homosexuality in my Child
In his outstanding book Preventing Homosexuality: A Parent’s Guide, clinical psychologist Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., offers these guidelines:

1. Don’t worry about the occasional cross-gender behavior of your preschool child. ( Ed Note: ?????)

2. Become concerned if you see evidences of gender confusion or doubt in your child from ages 5 to 11. “[T]here is a high correlation between feminine behavior in boyhood and adult homosexuality.”

3. Recognize that most homosexuals “were not explicitly [so] when they were children. More often, they displayed a ‘nonmasculinity’ that set them painfully apart from other boys: unathletic — somewhat passive, unaggressive and uninterested in rough-and-tumble play. A number of them had traits that could be considered gifts: bright, precocious, social and relational, and artistically talented.” (Ed: Sooooo...if your boy is a very social person who likes to draw or is inclined to a musical instrument and gets good grades at school while being very popular, HE'S GAYER AS CLAY AIKEN!)

Thong Song Hopes to Boost Lagging Attendance

Following on the heels of candy-flavored cigarettes and kiddie deodorant, Thong Song owner Dave has signed a Japanese vendor that is marketing a nonalcoholic drink it calls Kidsbeer:

"Even kids cannot stand life unless they have a drink," said Dave, "Children copy and mimic adults. If you get this drink ready on such occasions as events and celebrations attended by kids, it would make the occasions even more entertaining.

All of a sudden those free pre-teen tampons give-a-way nights at the ol’ball park are starting to sound realistic after all...

Kesslers Moment

Sometimes in life, whether it’s netting a large fish, or having a bad day at the office, we all have that one particular moment where we are badly in need of a shot of Kesslers. That’s why each week this season, the HA will feature, for good or for bad, a Kesslers Moment, with the hopes you toast it along with the rest of us.

This week’s Kessler’s Moment comes from DPR owner and HA Blog Editor Scott who moonlights as a fundraiser. He received the following actual reply to a recent Annual Fund request for a donation:





OOPS! We did it again!

We here at the Hippo’s Ass make every effort to provide correct, factual information. Sometimes, mistakes occur, after all, we are only human and if millions of years of evolution has taught us anything, its that things can change. (except in Kansa where things just go POOF! and appear) Therefore we offer the following corrections to this week’s HA BLOG.

In the article “Bridge Hits the Mark”, Mark’s team was incorrectly identified. It should have read “ The Luke Sky-Auger All-Stars”

In the article concerning the Draft Date Controversy, Detroit Mag Lites have changed their name. Its now, The O.P.P. A thank you to Black Belt Ben who pointed out our mistake and will receive a free Save-The-Date Magnet for his refrigerator.

In the section about Pat Robertson, even though we have him recorded on tape as saying the US should assassinate Hugo Chavez, apparently what he “really” said was “take out” which could mean “take out Hugo Chavez like we take out the trash or take him out to a nice dinner and some dancing”.

In the Ask Dr. Gary letter, the letter signer was mis-identified. It should have read:
Signed, Dirty Diapers Owner Justin (who took a shot at the editor of this BLOG and now reaps what he sows)

Correction II. Apparently Pat Robertson now apologizes for saying what he previously said he did not say, saying the original was taken out of context because its not what he said. Also, Tinky Winky is still gay…as is Clay Aiken.

The Other Cheek

Please bring $5 for food on Saturday. And BYOB. Apparently we squandered any extra cash on a pay-for-play site when we could have gotten it for free.

Apparently I like the word apparently.

Please visit our other Blog Links. Evatt is pretty funny sometimes. I wish he would write something funny for the HA, but thats another matter. The Literary Angler will feature some short stories I am currently writing. The first part of a short story is currently up. Feel free to comment. If you are interested in a litany of bad date stories and what not to do with a date's hair, visit JVM's blog titled: JVB

As always, your contributions are most welcome. Its saves me time to actually do my job.

Till Next Time Campers, Its been a Hoot-N-A-Holler!

It was time for another upgrade.

When I first started The Hippo's Ass, it was a simple two page newsletter for the members of the Blue Hippo Fantasy Football League.

Remember the first edition of The HA? One font style; no pictures? Stories were actually centered around a rag tag group of Fantasy Football team owners?

Then we upgraded to the popular format that include pictures, weird font styles, Ask Dr. Gary and more...

Eventually this led to The Hippo's Ass: The Movie ; starring Jim Carey as Mark, Ving Rames as Justin and David Faustino as Okie.

Sadly...The movie won the coveted Razzie award for worst movie, beating out the twelve hour mega-epic The Turbulant Love Life of Joe

Now in our sixth year, we begin a new era of The Hippo's Ass.

You will still see your old favorites...Ask Dr. Gary, Top Ten Lists, Questions of the Week, Grooming techniques of the poor and infamous, gratuitous pot-shots at people we don't like, Kessler's moments...and finally, if we get around to it, we will actually talk about Fantasy Football.

As always, I'm accepting admissions from other league owners (or should that be excepting?) Hopefully with this new format I'll be able to update the HA more often and write more content. (Right...and George Lucas writes great dialogue for love scenes)

And since this is now on the web, I bit a hearty welcome to those of you who have stumbled on this site, even if you accidently did so because you put the word "ASS" in Google. Sorry. No Hippo Porn here. But you are welcome to stay awhile and enjoy. (But if you came here because you put George Lucas Ass in Google...Take your Boba Fett under-roos wearing butt out of here and find somewhere else to go. Yoda Under-roos are ok.)

Now, with a new season on the horizon I'm sure we are all wondering the same thing...WHERE IS OUR DAMN MONEY, COMMISH!?!?!?!
