Palin gets a palm reading?

June 3, 2011


Blog Guy, a few days ago you said it looked like Sarah Palin is really going to run. You’ve been closely watching her bus trip this week, so now what do you think?

Oh, she’s looking more and more like a candidate to me.

Here she is in New Hampshire yesterday with her family, chatting with lobsters.

She also appears to be trying out signs with a possible campaign slogan, though personally I think her team should be able to come up with something much more effective than that one.

Anything else you can tell us about these shots from yesterday?

Yes. I noticed in the lobster picture that she actually has something written on her left hand, so I blew it up. it’s too blurry to say for sure, but it looks like “stop publicity.”

And what do you make of that?

Only that if she really wants to stop publicity, she should probably start reading the notes on her hand before she gets photographed high-fiving lobsters.

Looks more like “Stop puberty” to me, which I guess is part of her platform.

Who’s the “queen” here?

I can’t tell you the number of times I have shown up to a family clambake and had someone there greeting me with an “IDIOT QUEEN” sign. If I had a nickel….

Feeble-minded crustacean acknowledging it’s Idiot Queen.
Which exactly is which, is anyone’s guess.
But then again, does it really matter?

She should stop writing brief reminders on her hand and buy a couple dozen teleprompters and also stick her nose higher in the air.

Surely it says “Stop ‘faculty\'”? Which must be a reference to the Wisconsin Alumni folks, yes?

Also, is this blog a conspiracy lately to remind me of my favourite lobster joke?

If it’s a tattoo on her palm, she can always be her own palm reader…

Okay CrowGirl – What’s your favorite lobster joke? Or are you just teasing us?

Posted by inebgreen | Report as abusive

Ineb; sadly it’s a visual joke which requires a working knowledge of UK pub trouble starting vernacular; I’m really not sure how I can tell it on here!

Just like Palin – buying lobsters to bring to a clambake!

Thanks Crowgirl. I’ll just have to let my imagination run wild, which can be pretty scary. Of course, medidonuts always help.

Ok, she definitely is NOT in the right state of mind…
I wouldnt high five a live lobster sober…

@Shra – just for the purposes of clarification, how drunk would the lobster have to be?

Posted by Nosmo_King | Report as abusive

Drunk dead, Nosmo…
