The New, New Improved Dialogical Saloon

If it was just up to me, I would not have deleted the “The New Improved Dialogical Saloon.” It would still be up. However it offended the great god Google, for whom we will all soon work, because it violated the following Google Adsense guidelines:

    Subject: The Boss Isn’t Always Right

    Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.

    On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business.

    He asked the guy, “How much money do you make a week?”

    A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, “I make $400 a week. Why?”

    The CEO said, “Wait right here.” He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes and handed the guy $1,600 in cash and said, “Here’s four weeks’ pay…now GET OUT and don’t come back.”

    Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked,
    “Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?”

    From across the room a voice said, “Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.”

    Grumpy old men make the world go round!
    Who else is going to put down the younger generation and their lousy music?
    Who but we old Grumps can turn a pleasant conversation into a fight about Politics?

    Who else can listen to Merle Haggard and Led Zeppelin And love both equally?

    Or criticize brand new Harley’s because…why, they run better and don’t drip oil like the pans and shovels from our time?

    Funny, when I was teen, I had no money but still could scrape up enough for a Panhead. Now nearly 40 years later with a good job,I can’t afford a Panhead basket case!
    Fucking Yuppies decided they all wanted Pans and Knuckles and drove up the price to the point that you have to be rich to buy one. Motherfu###rs

    See, didn’t take me long to get Grumpy all over again!

    Merry Christmas

  11. Cap'n Bill Says:

    Merry Christmas from another grouchy old fart! (or was that a SHART…?)

    Bah Humbug!


    To All: Don’t forget to LIVE!

  12. Paladin Says:

    How the angel wound up atop the Christmas tree.

    When four of Santa’s elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the pre-Christmas pressure.
    Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.

    When Santa went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.
    Then when santa began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

    Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, Santa discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor.

    In his frustration, Santa accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. Santa went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

    Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.
    The angel said very cheerfully, “Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn’t this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to put it?”
    And thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

    Merry Christmas everybody!

    From my girl’s Twitter; “My coworker told me he got banned from a bar when he lived in North Dakota back in 1973 and didn’t try going back to it for 30 years but he finally did and the moment he stepped in someone yelled “Get the hell out of here Dennis” And that’s probably my favorite story ever”

    Cheers to All on this Winter Solstice – Stay Toasty & Safe out there…

  15. RtC Says:

    Wanna wish all here a very MERRY CHRISTMAS & Happy(safe) New Year!

    Shovelhead, you aren’t alone with yer sentiments. Shit has ALL gotten worse
    with age and I’m also a member of GOMC (Grumpy Old Man Club) ;)


  16. MtPockets Says:

    Waylon is one of my very favorites.

    One I play a lot is “Don’t you think this outlaw bit has done got outtta hand?”

    It’s a true story on too many levels, but it had what I’ve always thought was a funny twist.

    Nashville and the Country Music scene were both in a downhill slide until Waylon and Willie got the Outlaw movement going and resurrected them both. The story I was told was that as a show of their appreciation, Nashville made Waylon the Honorary Chief of Police- while he was supporting a $1500/day coke habit!
    Funny shit.

  17. Shovelhead Says:

    Ahh…Waylon. When Country music was good! Today’s Country is just Pop music with a fiddle….sucks bad!!

    Why is it everything (except for my Wife)seems to get worse with age?

    I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, maybe everything is better and I’m the one who’s worse…Maybe I’ve finally become a grumpy old man.

    Well, I may be grumpy but I’m happy about it, if that makes any sense.

  18. Roach Says:

    Waylon Jennings.
    This is the first time I’ve been in Maine in winter, fuck y’all are a hearty breed!
    Respects, roach.

  19. Cap'n Bill Says:

    @ shovelhead

    I agree with being stuck in another era…and that’s fine by me!

    As to the winter time, I’m in west Tn. and it does get cold here but, if you dress warm, you can ride almost year round.
    If I could see better at night, I’d ride to work…damn old people…


  20. Shovelhead Says:

    Funny you should mention Montana. My Wife and I were just talking about places like Montana or Wyoming. Someplace where we can be free again. Open spaces, I want to be able to see a hundred miles away. It can get claustrophobic here in the North East.

  21. MtPockets Says:

    Hey Shovelhead, move West young man! Believe it or not, some areas of Montana have enough breaks in the weather that sometimes a guy can ride every month of the year! We get snow, and sometimes a little cold, but nothing like you Nor’easters get.
    No legal weed yet, but nobody gives a shit anyway.
    I’ll be passing the time same as you- taking the Shovel Wide Glide apart and then puttin it back together.

    Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Respects to those deserving…


  22. Shovelhead Says:

    The Kraut
    Keep warm out there. Cold here but even colder where you are. I’m done riding for the winter, but I’d bet you’re still in the wind.

  23. The Kraut Says:

    Shovelhead…I’ll take the first toke tonight and dedicate it to you and all the real…

    Afterwards, I’ll take a massive shit and dedicate it to the IO pissgums…fucking wankers and wannabees

    Respect to those who warrant respect

    The Kraut

  24. rw Says:

    My daughter works in a place here where those io pukes hang out. She won’t wait on any of them cause she says they’re a bunch of asshole jerks. She also says that they’re women run they’re mouths and start more shit than the guys.

    @Big AL
    A cocksucker is a cocksucker no matter what he’s wearing. That was a bonified cocksucker

  26. Shovelhead Says:

    Griz’s Gal,

    Yes, I am!

    One toke over the line….

  27. Griz's Gal Says:

    Damn, Shovelhead. I could just about see what you were talking about as I was reading it. Brought back plenty of memories, and made me envy you. Hope you’re having as enjoyable time as I imagined.

    Rebel, I was thinking about you today. I’m hoping you’re safe, and not in the path of those fires. Stay safe, would ya?

    Hey, everybody else! Wherever you are, I hope you’re well and not being bugged by anybody. It’s about the best we can ask for anymore.

    Going back to my corner…


  28. Big Al Says:

    Rebel, In past years, you would sometimes print helpful articles on motorcycle maintenance, proper riding etiquette…. etc. Yesterday I was having a cup of coffee at my HD dealer’s shop in Wa….,well, you know where I live. Anyway, I noticed a very short, obese, slovenly, obnoxious person standing close to me. He was wearing a 3 piece patch ( Iron Order- Texas bottom ? ) , but it was on a sweatshirt -looking material, that appeared to be also used for his dog’s sleeping mat. I was offended by this, but did not know if I should alert the Harley service manager or the local animal control officer. Can you advise me?

  29. Drifter Says:

    Cold blooded murder,and the cops get away with another one, fucking jury, not even a man slaughter conviction.

  30. Shovelhead Says:

    Damn…snowing out. Guess I can’t complain, I’m in Maine where it should snow. Funny, I was planning on retiring down South….but you folks are getting snow too. Oh well, maybe I’ll go West. But not Waco!!

    Wonder what I should do to my ’73 flh this winter. Change it around every year, makes like a new bike for me, for little money. Some reason I have that old Country song in my head “I’ve always been crazy but it keeps me from going insane” Don’t remember who sang it, good song though.

    I know, I’m just rambling on about nothing, One of those kinda day’s I guess.

    Well, let the snow come, I’ve got plenty of firewood for the wood stove, A legal bag of weed (thank you Maine) and some 70’s era Easyriders to skim through. I know I’m stuck in a different era, but I don’t care, I like it here.

    Respect to the real 1%

  31. Austin Says:

    @ Gandalf – put saloon in search, scroll down & you’ll find the original place, which seems to be clinging to life as my personal joke repository these days. #2 got demo’d recently. This is the 3d version, as was so politely pointed out to me. I still prefer the original. Wish I’d thought to screenshot some of those exchanges… Que sara sara.

  32. Northern Californian Says:

    Just want to show some love and respect to rebel for continuing to run a great page for many years been following religiously and always impressed by the information. Thanks

  33. Gandalf Says:

    So this is where everyone goes (looks around) Have a wonderful Holiday season everyone (Exits) :)

  34. bcnasty Says:

    @ Paladin, being I am still living in the dark ages I prefer the old fashioned crazy or Hot test. In the middle of banging them call them by their sisters name. If they stab you they are crazy if they bang harder they are hot. Only been cut twice

  35. Austin Says:

    @ Johnny Rotten- Thanks man. You know how women never forget LOL. Besides – when its easy … Everyone does it. I’m attached to the old place. There’s an easy way in the back door if you know it. Eff the rest. I’m pouring hard cider in rainy Portland today. Cheers!

    RtC: Good to know, I’ve bookmarked it, will continue to pay attention.

  37. RtC Says:

    Dasein, yeah, that’s me, alright. I never considered it as having a blog, I’m
    just commenting on articles others post.
    The “the” is gone because Google has a limit on letters & that is how I login to Discus. So, nobody has stolen my handle, this time. Happened once several years ago, but ended after we met by “accident”.
    I appreciate that you agree with my sentiments. Great minds & all, you know. ;)
    Found discus after I got out of FB some time back.

  38. Dasein Says:

    RtC: I hadn’t noticed the omission of the “the” part. Must be a pretty crowded corner of the universe.

  39. RtC Says:

    WHOOOOA Dasein! What blog? I sure as hell don’t have one. I type 2 fingered
    & not very fast at that. There surely isn’t another Redwolf the Conchoman.
    If so, the SOB has stolen my handle. I’ve seen other Redwolf’s but not the
    full name like mine.

  40. Dasein Says:

    RtC: Just found your blog, and I’m in agreement with everything I’ve read so far. Nice to have more sanity online. Keep it up. I’d link it here, but I figure that’s up to you.

  41. RtC Says:

    Back at’cha Cap’n Bill! Hope all is well yer way. Still kickin’ here(just not
    as hard as used to ;) )
    Best to you & yours from me & mine.

  42. Cap'n Bill Says:

    Once again, I sent (forwarded) an email to the aclu with no response about twin peaks, etc. I’m not hoping for any correspondence but, one never knows, does one…?

    I hope everyone has been having a dandy time this holiday season!

    A BIG hello to REDWOLF!
