Penelope Soto Flips Off Grumpy Judge and Pays the Price: A Tale of Authority Figures And Their Iron Fists of uhhh... Authority... Gone Cuckoo (also, we embark on a new journey at, and I will tell you about that)

Penelope Soto rustles a judge's jimmies in a Miami Dade courtroom

Have you heard about this crazy situation with this young lady Penelope Soto who rustled a judge's jimmies, and he subsequently threw the book at her?  (SEE:  Flipping the Bird to the Judge )

Well, guess what, kids!  It's the subject of my first ever podcast.  Yes, take my hand, true believers, because we are going in a new direction here at  One that will save on the high cost of ink, by cutting down on words for me, and hopefully will make the experience for you, the gentle reader, more enjoyable.  Let me know what you think about this "new direction" in the comments. But for now....just click on the media player below, and let your ears do all the thinking...

"Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it." (via "Billy Madison")

Now back to our story.  As I alluded to in the podcast,  Penelope Soto pretty much told this grumpy, old judge to kiss her a$$...

...and the judge reacted like we were in Soviet Russia...

...or perhaps the judge was just givng her a dose of "tough love"?


Luckily, my roving current events analyst Lord Throckmorton Fungusleaves has been covering this story, and was able to bring you this new delightful video...SO WATCH!

Welp, dear friends...  that's all I have for you today.

So, I figure I'd just post this picture of a panda's butt I found on the internets, and call it an afternoon.

Once again, thank you, and please remember to support your local zoo.  Stay clasyy, Chicago!


  1. Well sadly my friend I am reading from the library so can't podcast right now but I will say congratulations on this new direction and I really hope it works out for you. Podcasts can be more fun than actual posts because you can go in to a lot more detail, and go on many more random tangents.

  2. Watching the video of Penelope was freaking hilarious. She got what she deserved.

    Edit: F1rst1!11!

  3. I don't know what to think about the Penelope Soto case. She's obviously a spoilt child, but the judge came across as pompous old fart. So I'm in two minds, like you. My views are much clearer on Rihanna-Bieber affair. I want this to happen badly. As long as Rihanna doesn't have the herp, I wouldn't wish that on Biebs. Does she have the herp?

    1. Gorilla, that's what I have read, though I am obviously in no position to independently verify it.

  4. ah a new service for the short attention span people, we don't need to read any more!! I like the soundbites (is that what you call it?) Do more podcasts, I can listen to it during work.

    1. Yeah, "soundbites" is a good word. I will try to do as many podcasts as humanly possible.

    1. Pandas are furry in general. So it just makes good sense that their butts would be furry as well.
