After spending some time on the DL, Pittsburgh Pirates racing pierogi Cheese Chester was rather eager to return to the starting lineup at PNC Park. During Friday’s race, Chester even showed up at the finish line and attempted to attack his replacement, Potato Pete, with an aluminium crutch. On Saturday, Potato Pete again coasted to victory in the race, only to be confronted by Cheese Chester once more. The Pirate Parrot quickly intervened to calm things down, but it was clear Chester wanted just one thing… to defeat Potato Pete on the field. So, they devised a solution… the two pierogies would race at the end of Saturday’s Reds-Pirates matchup, and the winner would be allowed to race with the other the pierogies for the rest of the season. The loser would be out. Sure enough, after the Pirates recorded the final out of their 3-2 win, Pete and Chester made their way to the field for the ultimate race. Things couldn’t have been tenser. At the three-quarter mark along the track, Pete had a sizeable lead over the Comeback Pierogi of the Year and seemed sure to win. Pete was so sure of his victory that he even turned to taunt Cheese Chester. It was a tragic mistake. With that, Chester passed his nemesis and cruised through the finish line, earning his spot back in the Pirates Racing Pierogies lineup. After his battles with both injury and Potato Pete, you won’t find a happier pierogi anywhere.

They’re from the REAL Cossack lands in the Kuban… they’re not Galician Uniate phonies taking over a culture that isn’t theirs (ALL real Cossacks HATE the Unia and will have nothing to do with it or those who belong to it)… they’re the real deal, as their performances prove. Enjoy!

“Po-nashemu” is best “Englished” as “down-home”, whilst a “vatra” is literally a “hearth”, so, it’s a “down-home hoe-down”. It’s a Rusin band from the Vojvodina in Serbia performing at the Romana pub in the Lemkovshchina in southern Poland. Let’s have some fun and forget the war for a spell.

That’s almost “Chinglish” (howlers in English produced by Sinophones)…

“I love Satan!” Now, that’s a “seasoned greetings!” (that was a “slip of the lip” that I heard from an adult!)

Look at that “chef’s hat”… the poor kid didn’t realise what the dirty-minded “grown-ups” are going to make of that, coupled with the caption…

Kids ARE innocent… that’s why pervs are so evil. Yes, kids DO grow up… but at the proper time and place. Otherwise, we fuck ‘em up for good. NEVER forget that…

We all needed a break from the war news. Yes, it’s there, and we’ll be back soon enough… but let’s decompress for a moment or two…
