Judging by the hefty folks in the pic, I’m assuming any sort of food documentary would be a big hit. Maybe a candy-themed fantasy like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?

Is there a 90 minute version of Wilford Brimley’s “Diabeetus” commercial?

C.H. – I wonder what you look like? Does anyone know this guy?

I imagine him to look like Ignatius J. Reilly with less flair.

Freja – Haha! I love that. Makes me want to read the book again. Trouble is that I loved that character but this “Bucky” person is a negative poster.

Imagine if Ignatius had an obnoxious cousin. This bit often plays through my mind as I read his comments.

He dramatically whipped from his pelvis the sheet, flapping it open. Among the yellow stains the word(s JUNKIE HOBO were) printed in high block letters in red crayon. Below this Crusade for Moorish Dignity was written in an intricate blue script.

“Sheet? What sheet!” Ignatius replied. “I am holding before you the proudest of banners, an identification of our purpose, a visualization of all that we seek.” The workers studied the stains more intensely. “If you wish to simply run into the office like cattle, you will have participated in nothing more than a riot. This banner alone gives form and credence to the agitation. There is a certain geometry involved in these things, a certain ritual which must be observed. Here, you two (green haired dog lovers) standing there, take this between you and wave it thus with honor and pride, hands held high, et cetera.”

Holy cow, you woke people read stuff besides young adult nonsense written for children and sold to cat ladies?

Hey Freja, you should read that book again because it’s pretty clear that Ignatius thinks he’s living in Medieval Era, much the same way you woketards think it’s 1962 and flat-topped rednecks control the country.
Turns out you guys do nothing but march for variations on “Moorish Dignity”

You are aware that Confederacy of Dunces contains no dragons or Mary Sue princess warriors, right?

Dear Geeky Swedes,
I think it’s time you turn off all commenting on this blog.

Ah, look. It’s the Censorship Liberals – who do nothing but bash “Walmart Country/Red States” and insult and deride “Flyover Country Hicks” with every breath screeching for censorship.
“Drumpf is big fat fatty orange man!”
Yeah yeah and so is half of Seattle/PDX.

Yup. They did that because everyone is sick of Diversity Inc and the Tax Racket that turned this city into a dumpy, overpriced condo slum filled with hostiles we pay for.
You guys get tired of losing debates, so you start censoring. It’s a tacit admission of your own authoritarian tendencies and the weakness of your views when they are exposed to free and open discussion.

Haha what? There are tons of comments on Seattle Times. If they turned off comments here they would lose so many clicks that they’d have to shut the site down. Only so many people are going to check out a website that solely about which restaurants are closing and what intersection is getting a new stop sign.

Why do many fat people in the pic? Put down the beer and work out once in awhile.

Remember when liberals were skinny and the Walmart Rednecks were the butt (pun intended) of their snarky Stranger “humor” for years?
I guess everyone is fat now. Gross.

Considering how much eating is going on I would say not.

Do they sweep for needles before the event? Or should they re-title the event “Summer outdoor movies at Ballard Commons with free AIDS and/or hepatitis”

I live near the park… here’s my story from one of the movie nights last year. Was walking my dog around the park 40mins or so before the movie was gonna start. The police had shuffled the homeless out of the park itself but there were still 3 tents on the north side of the park at that time as well as some piles of trash and bicycles. Two homeless guys started yelling and swearing at each other. The cops come over and separate them quickly. The cops are busy dealing with these two random homeless guys trying to calm them down. Meanwhile over at the west side of the park near Sweet Mickey’s is another homeless guy in his sleeping bag just laying on the grass. This guys arm was sticking out of the bag and moving back and forth rapidly. I did a quick double take… then put two and two together. This dude was jacking it in his sleeping bag. I looked back and forth between the cops dealing with the homeless fight and this guy in his sleeping bag barely concealing his jerk off session. It was a pretty surreal moment. I walked off in disgust… Read more »

The most disturbing part of your post was the DJ playing Huey Lewis. Lol.

This is LGBTQ stuff and protected yes? Why are you such a bigot?
