This makes me happy...

It's good to see a meme catch on. First here, and now:
...Andrew Traver demonstrating the kind of judgement it take to be the potential leader of that merry band of clown-shoed thugs and stumblebums at BATFE.
(Seen at The Black Sunday Society.)

"Clown-Shoed Thugs"... It's got a ring to it, no?

Sounds like a great line for a T-shirt or a mug.

While I have worked with some BATFE agents who are good cops and good people, a few of them and nearly everybody at the RAC level or above fits that description.

"the potential leader of that merry band of clown-shoed thugs and stumblebums at BATFE"

That is Gay Cynic's line from IRC.

First draft title was "This F**king Guy."

My friend Jazz link me at Hot Air dot com so the meme is getting wider.

Oops that's what I get for skipping over that 2nd link.

Sorry.

Edit: I should have known Tam was the patient zero of snark.

Sincerest flattery and all that...

AKA "Damn I wish I'd written that!"

But the snark runs deeper here than the mere hilariously mocking term, into a dark place where we all know we are at the random mercy of incompetents who wield the stone-cold power of life and death under the color of law, and with all the character, sobriety, and veracity of Bozo himself.

Had a chance to use it in an email today: "Clown-shoe'd thugs and stumble-bum door-kickers"

Ah, yes. That delightful reference to the dreaded Clown Squad in the movie "Real Men", with John Ritter and Jim Belushi.

I wonder how popular that scene is, at Langley?

BATFECR: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives, and Clownish Rabble. Say it fast, like "Batfeckers."
