Give Us This Day Our Daily King Crab

I have a little guilty pleasure that I’m about to admit to . . .  whenever I’m feeling especially blue, down in the dumps as it were, I just google me up some fresh, hot Gohmert and a few belly laughs later? good to go!

Louie rarely disappoints because he’s one of those guys who was born totally without inhibition or a functioning bullshit filter, so whatever spontaneous surreal images or associations occur in Louie’s head, they come tumbling out, real time.

Today’s offering had to do with the most recent House of Representatives fiasco—non-passage of a Farm Bill that has been kicking around for three years now.  US Farm bills are what is known in the trade as an omnibus bill—Congress-speak for a Pork Lovers Dream and, historically, Congress has little problem with larding ‘em up and letting ‘em rip.

Or at least until now, in the hands of the sadistic 113th Congress.  See the Farm Bill contains provisions for Food Stamps which were due to be cut by about $2 billion.  President Obama didn’t like that so House Republicans loved it.  Not only did they love it, they wanted to double down and see if they couldn’t give the Kenyan Usurper a real case of the vapors.

The $2 billion number was the result of “bipartisan haggling and compromise,” but the Real Men of the 113th, men like Louie Gohmert refused to vote aye on such a piddling little girl cut as that.  And of course, Louie was only representin’ because his constituents are forever complaining to him about the feasts their neighbors on food stamps indulge in—like, for example king crab legs!

Louie simply cannot countenance the pain of his peeps and vote for a bill that would allow the good times to keep on rolling for the Food Stamp gang while honest, hardworking Texans are forced to live on Slim Jims and Whoopie Pies.

Here, in Louie’s own inimitable words:

See.  You feel better already, amirite?

Oh, Louie, Louie, Louie.  So now we have “king crab legs” added to the lexicon along with welfare queens, cadillacs and t-bone steaks.  The dig at the end about how they can’t be starving anyway cuz they’re all so obese was classic Gomer too.  Thanks, Bette.  Pretty much made my day too!

And you may ask yourself
Where are my King Crab Legs?
And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
And I right? ..Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself
My God!...What have I done?!

Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Yeah, the twister comes
Same as it ever was…

@mararama nicely played!  David Byrne is always relevant . . .

marindenver, don’t forget the Obamaphone and video rentals.

If he spent as much time on a jobs bill as he does spouting bullshit, maybe his constituents would be able to afford king crab legs once in a while.

What the hell was that bit about the “people on the other side of the aisle wanting to condemn anyone who is working and scraping and trying to save money”?  I mean, where’s Gomer’s jobs bill or his minimum wage bill?  He’s not trying to help his constituents, he’s trying to punish the poor.

The poor should be fed nothing but delicious, nutritious Soylent Green.

Also, too - crab Louie?
