SoSG Smonkstakes!

So, yesterday you Met Smonk. Today, you learn how you can Get Smonk. This is how the lucky reader/Smonk recipient will be determined:

  • Comment here as you please
  • Whenever this thread goes without a comment for 48 hours, the reader who made the last comment wins! (comments from the Sons don't count)
  • For your convenience, a "SoSG Smonkstakes" link to this thread has been placed on the sidebar.

Nothing more to it. Probably the simplest SoSG competition yet. Any questions ask here. I will leave you with more photos of Smonk during his SoSG tattoo surgical procedure:

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Chili! Red-hot Texas-style chili! And we got gingerale: boiling-hot Texas-style gingerale!

Meaniebreanie said...

Day 3 and no signs of slowing down. It might be safe to say that the Smonkster will firmly remain in Mr. & Mrs. Orel's possession for future generations to come.

@MLASF
Don't know if that is one of the Star Wars quotes as I am not a SW geekette. Whoever wrote this is clearly not from Texas. Gingerale-WTF? People in these parts pair any Tex-Mex such as chili, enchiladas, etc with Big Red. It is an unwritten state law.

QuadSevens said...

Mmmmmmm! Big Red! My family used to take a trip out to San Antonio every summer to visit cousins. I always made sure to bring home lots of Big Red. Since then, I've been able to find it in stores here in socal.

Oh yeah...and the Smonkstakes will never end.

Meaniebreanie said...

@7777
Yes, it used to be just a Texas thing. Dr. Pepper (which is now owned by the behemoth Cadbury Schweppes) purchased an interest in Big Red a few years ago. It would make sense that the channels of distribution were increased.

Personally I am fond of the diet version. It tastes just like the original.

MR. F said...

RIEEKAN: (indicates radar screen) With all the meteor activity in this
system, it's going to be difficult to spot approaching ships.

QuadSevens said...

I'm going to have to find myself a bottle of Big Red today after work. I'm craving one now! =)

QuadSevens said...

Maybe I'll try a diet Big Red too.

MR. F said...

Taking a deep breath, Han blurts out what is on his mind.

HAN: General, I've got to leave. I can't stay anymore.

Meaniebreanie said...

@7777
Sorry, didn't mean to get you jonesing. If you're calorie conscious, I promise that the diet is just as good as the original.

MR. F said...

Princess Leia, standing at a console nearby, is dressed in a
short white combat jacket and pants. Her hair is brained(sic) and
tied across her head in a Nordic fashion. She overhears their
conversation and seems somewhat distressed.

QuadSevens said...

@Meanie

It's ok. If Big Red wasn't readily available here, then it might be a problem.

MR. F said...

RIEEKAN: I'm sorry to hear that

Eric Karros said...

Mr F is relentless

MR. F said...

HAN: Well, there's a price on my head. If I don't pay off Jabba the
Hut, I'm a dead man.

Dusty Baker said...

Well hello there.

MR. F said...

RIEEKAN: A death mark's not an easy thing to live with. You're a good
fighter, Solo. I hate to lose you.

Dusty Baker said...

Hello, I must be going.

MR. F said...

HAN: Thank you, General.

Josh S. said...

Butts. LOL.

MR. F said...

He turns to Leia as Rieekan moves away.

HAN: (with feeling) Well, Your Highness, I guess this is it.

Spanky said...

Looks like Mr.F has blown his hyperdrive

MR. F said...

LEIA: That's right.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh no! That sinister-looking kid is coming to kill me. Help. Help! Aah!"

MR. F said...

Leia is angry. Han sees she has no warmth to offer him. He
shakes his head and adopts a sarcastic tone.

HAN: (cooly) Well, don't get all mushy on me. So long, Princess.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I was at Bible Camp. I was learning how to be more judgemental.

MR. F said...

Han walks away into the quiet corridor adjoining the
command center. Leia stews a moment, then hurries after him.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh I see. Then everything is wrapped up in a NEAT LITTLE PACKAGE!

Really, I mean that. Sorry if it sounded sarcastic.

MR. F said...

INTERIOR: HOTH -- REBEL BASE -- ICE CORRIDOR

LEIA: Han!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

He's going to kill Rod and Todd too. That's horrible!...in principle.

Eric Karros said...

Mr F seems to really want Smonk, presumably as a companion to the white bear in his avatar. But I fear it is driving him over the edge.

I really don't want that on my conscience.

MR. F said...

EK, I'm already past the edge and it's not from SoSG. So your conscience has nothing to worry about.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Do not be alarmed, continue swimming naked. Aw, c'mon, continue! Come on! Oh...All right, Lou, open fire.

MR. F said...

LEIA: I thought you decided to stay.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let me be blunt: is there a labor crisis in America today?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Mmm, I wish you'd stop spreading bad rumors about people. Remember how you got Grampa tarred and feathered?

Sure, that was twenty minutes ago.

MR. F said...

HAN: Well, the bounty hunter we ran into on Ord Mantell changed my
mind.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hello, and welcome to the Springfield Police Department Resc-u-Fone. If you know the name of the felony being committed, press one. To choose from a list of felonies, press two. If you are being murdered or calling from a rotary phone, please stay on the line.

Meaniebreanie said...

@EK et al
I'm with you. Mr. F has clearly gone over the edge and is pushing the rest of us over as well. Just give him the friggin bear and make it stop!

Smonkstakes called due to readership insanity!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You've entered the code for regicide. If you know the name of the King or Queen being murdered...

MR. F said...

LEIA: Han, we need you!

Eric Karros said...

Meanie: actually, MLASF is giving him a run for his money. Reminds me of McGwire-Sosa '98.

MBS said...

- I swear I don't know where the bombs are. Only the miners know that.

- Maybe this will loosen your tongue!

- Ahh! No! Aagh!

MR. F said...

HAN: We?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sorry, Bart dude. We gotta fill this thing with Epsom Salt and jam it on over to the old folks' home.

Meaniebreanie said...

This is going to be a very long competition. I feel like a lemming about to head over the cliff. Cracking open a bottle of Tommasi Amarone to help ease the pain. Salute!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

My plan has come to fruition. Soon I will be queen of summertime...uh, King! King!

Greg said...

So whose off-spring will be awarding this prize?

MR. F said...

LEIA: Yes.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let us celebrate our new arrangement with the adding of chocolate to milk.

MBS said...

I got the idea when I noticed the refrigerator was cold.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm telling you, Ned Flanders murdered his wife!

But why? She's such a fox! I mean, what's on Fox tonight? Something ribald, no doubt...

MBS said...

There was an optics festival and I wasn't informed?! You go now!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm sorry, that leg's going to have to come off.

Did I say "leg"? I meant that wet bathing suit.

MR. F said...

HAN: Oh, what about you need?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey Nelson, he's really hurt. I think he broke his leg.

I said, ha ha.

MR. F said...

LEIA: (mystified) I need? I don't know what you're talking about.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ice cream! Ice cream! We are all out of ice cream!

MBS said...

Oh! The gentle caress of a summer breeze...

MR. F said...

HAN: (shakes his head, fed up) You probably don't.

MBS said...

He's going to kill Rod and Todd too! That's horrible -- in theory.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I wish there was some other explaination for this...but there isn't. I'm a murderer, I'm a murderer!

Then that's not the real Ned Flanders.

I'M A MUR-DIDDLY-ERDILER!!

If that's not Flanders, he's done his homework.

MR. F said...

LEIA: And what precisely am I supposed to know?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Over here we have the Hick Tub, the Insta-Rust, there's the Lightning-magnet, this is the Tinkler…

Ooooh! The Tinkler! I like the sound of that.

MBS said...

Look, question lady - this job isn't what I do. I play keyboards.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Marge, can you set the oven to cold?

MBS said...

Cast of characters: Viceroy Fizzlebottom, a hearty cherub of a man.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm out of quotes. Until tomorrow, ladies and gentlemen.

MBS said...

- Hi, bart.

- Hey, bart.

- Hello, Mrs. Cumberdale.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Or am I?

Eric said...

Oh no...it's now become a 3-way descent into madness.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

“Madness is to think of too many things in succession too fast, or of one thing too exclusively”

- Voltaire

MR. F said...

HAN: Come on! You want me to stay because of the way you feel about
me.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No!

MR. F said...

LEIA: Yes. You're a great help to us. You're a natural leader...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

martian

MR. F said...

HAN: No! That's not it. Come on. Aahhh -- uh huh! Come on.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

flapdoodle.

MR. F said...

Leia stares at him, understanding, then laughs.

LEIA: You're imagining things.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I would like to be the type of guy who could really make use of a stationery store. You know someone who's corresponding, keeping a journal, sending out invitations.

MR. F said...

HAN: Am I? Then why are you following me? Afraid I was going to leave
without giving you a goodbye kiss?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

But you're not that guy. You're a guy who wears sneakers and watches TV.

MR. F said...

LEIA: I'd just as soon kiss a Wookiee.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

As it happens.

Free rbnlaw said...

I've got a bad feeling about this.

MR. F said...

HAN: I can arrange that. You could use a good kiss!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

(Looking at display case)

ELAINE: I don't see it.

Free rbnlaw said...

Got to find something I can quote ad naseum.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: What about this one?

MR. F said...

Angrily, Han strides down the corridor as Leia stares after
him.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ELAINE: No, no that's a pen.

MR. F said...

INTERIOR: HOTH -- REBEL BASE -- ANOTHER ICE CORRIDOR

A familiar stream of beeps and whistles herald the approach
of Artoo-Detoo and See-Threepio, who appear around a corner
and move along an ice wall toward the main hangar.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

(Salesman, Barry appears)

BARRY: May I help you?

MR. F said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ELAINE: Yes, I'm looking for the Rolamech 1000. It's a mechanical pencil.

MR. F said...

Artoo beeps a stream of protesting whistles.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BARRY: Oh I know the Rolamech 1000.

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Oh, switch off.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

MR. F said...

INTERIOR: HOTH -- REBEL BASE -- MAIN HANGAR DECK

The two robots stop at Han Solo's space freighter. Han and
Chewie are struggling with their central lifters.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

NOOOOO

MR. F said...

HAN: (to Chewie) Why do you take this apart now? I'm trying to get us
out of here and you pull both of these.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh come on.

MR. F said...

Chewie grumbles in irritation.

Bryan said...

Don’t kid yourself, Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, he’d eat you and everyone you care about!

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Excuse me, sir.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Day 4 and the insanity continues.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

- Albert Einstein

Meaniebreanie said...

And thus it goes on and on.

Dusty Baker said...

Just a small town girl
Living in a lonely world
She took the midnight train going anywhere
Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train going anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

{Refrain}
Strangers, waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Paying anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

{Refrain}

Don't stop believing
Hold on to that feeling
Streetlight people

Meaniebreanie said...

Journey was great back in their day. It's such a shame that Steve Perry's voice is forever gone.

Dusty Baker said...

And that he's a Gnats fan.

MR. F said...

HAN: (to Chewie) Put them back together right now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

chickens

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Might I have a word with you, please?

Josh S. said...

And then I pour the milk.

MR. F said...

HAN: What do you want?

QuadSevens said...

*sips a scotch and watches the madness unfold*

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Well, it's Princess Leia, sir. She's been trying to get you
on the communicator.

Paul said...

This whole thing is a shame and mockery. It is a shomockery, not it's a shomockavesty.

Spanky said...

Reading this thread is making me want to smoke some smonk weed. Serenity Now!

Josh S. said...

Do nurples come in other colors, aside from purple?

I hereby declare that an orange nurple is a purple nurple administered by someone with Cheeto fingers.

MR. F said...

HAN: I turned it off. I don't want to talk to her.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Flim flam.

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Oh. Well, Princess Leia is wondering about Master Luke. He
hasn't come back yet. She doesn't know where he is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

knuckle

MR. F said...

HAN: I don't know where he is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Seems to me, that button is in the worst possible spot. [talking about George's shirt] The second button literally makes or breaks the shirt, look at it: it's too high! It's in no-man's-land, you look like you live with your mother

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Nobody knows where he is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: Are you through? [kind of irritated]

MR. F said...

HAN: What do you mean, "nobody knows"?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: You do of course try on, when you buy?

Jason said...

337, just because

MR. F said...

Han glances at the fading light at the entrance of the ice
cave as night slowly begins to fall on the planet.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: Yes, it was purple, I liked it, I don't actually recall considering the buttons.

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Well, uh, you see...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Oh, you don't recall?

MR. F said...

Han jumps down off the lift, as Threepio follows him.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: [pretends he's talking into a microphone] Uh, no, not at this time.

MR. F said...

HAN: Deck Officer. Deck Officer!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Well, senator, I just like to know, what you knew and when you knew it. [a waitress approaches the table]

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Excuse me, sir. Might I inqu-...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WAITRESS: Mister Seinfeld. [she pours coffee in his cup] Mister Costanza. [she wants to pour coffee, but George stops her]

MR. F said...

Han abruptly puts his hand over Threepio's mouth as the
deck officer approaches.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: Are, are you sure this is decaf? Where's the orange indicator?

MR. F said...

DECK OFFICER: Yes, sir?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WAITRESS: It's missing, I have to do it in my head: decaf left, regular right, decaf left, regular right...it's very challenging work. [ironically]

MR. F said...

HAN: Do you know where Commander Skywalker is?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Can you relax, it's a cup of coffee, Claire is a professional waitress.

MR. F said...

DECK OFFICER: I haven't seen him. It's possible he came in through the
south entrance.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: How come you're not doin' the second show tomorrow?

MR. F said...

HAN: It's possible? Why don't you go find out? It's getting dark out
there.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Well, there's this uh, woman might be comin' in.

MR. F said...

DECK OFFICER: Yes, sir.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: Wait a second, wait a second, what coming in, what woman is coming in?

MR. F said...

The deck officer leaves hurriedly, as Han takes his hand
off Threepio's mouth.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: I told you about Laura, the girl I met in Michigan?

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Excuse me, sir. Might I inquire what's going on?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: No, you didn't!

MR. F said...

HAN: Why not?

MR. F said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: I thought I told you about it, yes, she teaches political science? I met her the night I did the show in Lansing...[looks in the milk can] There's no milk in here, what...

MR. F said...

THREEPIO: Impossible man. Come along, Artoo, lets find Princess Leia.
Between ourselves, I think Master Luke is in considerable danger.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: Wait wait wait, what is she, [takes the milk can from Jerry and puts it on the table] what is she like?

MR. F said...

INTERIOR: HOTH -- REBEL BASE -- MAIN ICE TUNNEL

The deck officer and his assistant hurry toward Han as he
enters the tunnel.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: [with a big smile] So, ya know, what, what happened?

MR. F said...

DECK OFFICER: Sir, Commander Skywalker hasn't come in through the
south entrance. He might have forgotten to check in.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Oh, nothing happened, ya know, but is was great.

MR. F said...

HAN: Not likely. Are the speeders ready?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: Oh, nothing happened, but it was...

MR. F said...

HAN: Then we'll have to go out on Tauntauns.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Yeah.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DECK OFFICER: Sir, the temperature's dropping too rapidly.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: This is great!

MR. F said...

DECK OFFICER: Sir, the temperature's dropping too rapidly.

Paul said...

The game is still the same. It is you who have changed!

MR. F said...

HAN: That's right. And my friend's out in it.

Josh S. said...

I get out the Navy, my brother's famous, his fame is exploding. I'm real proud of that. You know what I mean. I'm getting to hang out with people that I only read about in magazines and seen on the screen somewhere. I'm standing next to them, being at dinner tables with them. And you know it was a bugout, man. And you know, I was a huge Rick James fan. That's the first person that I would say that out of all the celebrities that I met, that I was starstruck.

Dusty Baker said...

Hoth is cold. So very cold.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Yeah.

MR. F said...

ASSISTANT OFFICER: I'll cover sector twelve. Have com-control set
screen alpha.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GEORGE: So, ya know, she calls and says she wants to go out with you tomorrow night? God bless! Devil you!

MR. F said...

Han pushes through the troops and mounts a Tauntaun.

DECK OFFICER: Your Tauntaun'll freeze before you reach the first
marker.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JERRY: Yeah, well...not exactly. I mean, she said, you know, she called this morning and said she had to come in for a seminar and maybe we'll get together.

Free rbnlaw said...

HA! 3 can play this game.

Bayern out to a cracking start of the second half. Good chances.

Free rbnlaw said...

Shot over the bar for Inter. Milito just over and saved.

Free rbnlaw said...

Wasted through ball. Goal kick to Bayern.

Free rbnlaw said...

Jose Mourinho a master tactician; has his team come out of the tunnel late for the beginning of the second half; backfires right away.

Free rbnlaw said...

Schweinsteiger having a decent game. I believe his name means "pig killer" in German.

Free rbnlaw said...

Free kick to Inter, wasted over the bar.

Free rbnlaw said...

Altintop with a chance for Bayern; goes wide.

Free rbnlaw said...

Corner to Inter; cleared by Bayern.

Free rbnlaw said...

Italian fans not fond of Bayern's ball control offense.

Free rbnlaw said...

Lousy corner play for Bayern.

MR. F said...

HAN: Then I'll see you in hell!

MR. F said...
