Ooops, some slippage here, from #02 last year to #04, bobbolink, otherwise known as the bobbling primitive or Bobo the Hobo--this, despite that the bobbling primitive did something no other primitive, not even my fellow alum Skins during the Fitzmas free-for-all, could possibly do, get the Bostonian Drunkard (temporarily) tossed off Skns's island.

And in case one isn't aware, the bobbling primitive is homeless.

And she manages to interject that fact into just about any campfire she approaches, even if it's a campfire about nuclear dynamics or the manned landing on the moon or the quality of Wisconsin cheese.

The bobbling primitive is single--although she was once possibly married, and had a child--and in her mid-60s, of indeterminate south Asian or western African derivation, and lives in Denver, in an oversized automobile, since she can't find any public housing akin to the CalPig's Streisandian mansion or Pedro Picasso's second home in rural Connecticut.....and with maids, valets, menservants, chefs, chauffeurs, to wait upon her.

The world lost an opportunity to see the bobbling primitive in the flesh, when the cross-eyed Iowa primitive hosted a primitive get-together in Denver in August 2008, and neglected to invite the bobbling primitive for some free chow and drinks. (The primitives posted various "picture threads" of that event, at which the snobbish Lord Marblehead EarlG condescended to show up for a few minutes, after which he went back to hobnobbing with Dems Who Count.)


The bobbling primitive created a Great Discombobulation, perhaps the biggest of all of 2010, on Skins's island, by getting the boring and tedious Bostonian Drunkard thrown off. One then hoped the Bostonian Drunkard would drown, or something, on his swimming towards another island, but alas, that was not to be, as my fellow alum relented some weeks later, letting the soggy Bostonian Drunkard crawl back ashore.

disclosure: franksolich was absent April-July, and missed this event, and so perhaps cannot give the event the treatment it deserves.

Mr. Wiggum first flashed the news to the world here, from a campfire my fellow alum later doused:


But then three months later, alas, this:

Original message


I have to go to work in 20 minutes, so I'm forced to make this quick and to the point.

I really, really, really fucked up and was banned. The Admins recently decided to reinstate me, pretty much out of the kindness of their hearts, because I didn't deserve a second thought after the shit I pulled.

I am very glad to be back. I am truly sorry for my behavior. I'm looking to be a good DU citizen from here on out.

So, hi. Don't call it a comeback. I've been here for years.


As incredible as it might seem, the bobbling primitive brings up about twice as many "search" results here than does the Bostonian Drunkard; they've both been very popular, but it appears the bobbling primitive two times more so.

The bobbling primitive just last week won the coveted Annie Award, in a tie with Alan Grayson:


There's reams of material on the bobbling primitive, too much to list, so here's a tiny sampling:

the bobbling primitive wants to get lucky:


the bobbling primitive spins a bouncy:

I still believe bobbolink is a deep cover mole. :D

My one problem with this is that Bobbolink got so much noteriety this year from nothing that she did. It's all about Will Pitt.
