Beer belly buffoonery

QC was given a copy of a new local newspaper called the Forum West last night. We were surprised to not see any photos of politicians handing out bogus awards. No lame press releases and no July 4th ads from pols, either. However, it does contain this priceless shot of Pinky G. kicking a soccer ball. The article is about artificial turf in NYC parks which could cause cancer. Pinky and the Parks Department think the turf is safe and cite studies done by the manufacturer to support their position. Sounds like a tweeding in the making.

Certain bloggers shouldn't be making fun of the weight of others. Gallagher is middle aged, what's your excuse?

Joe said...

Gallagher's belly is a result of too much Budweiser and junk food. he's a politician in the vein of Bill Clinton in more ways than one!

His pink hue is too!

I can agree that this blog should be critical of Gallagher, but don't you think that posting an item for the sole purpose of making fun of his physique is a bit beneath you? I guess we are back in the 5th grade.

the beer belly buffoon gallagher had a bad july 4th, right dennis?

Queens Crapper said...

The item was posted to bring attention to the fact that he is basing his acceptance of the safety of artificial turf on studies done by the tire manufacturers that produce it.

My. someone is a bit sensitive about having an unflattering photo of himself in a newspaper and on the web. Not sure why, considering the other papers print unflattering photos of Gallagher every week. Actually, I don't think a flattering photo of the man exists.

Is this guy dumping tons of money on a surprisingly newly revived Onderdonk house? After decades of sleep they seem to be suspiciously active as of late.

Guilt over St Saviours?

The guy on NY1 looked pretty average weight to me. Regardless, being middle aged is not an excuse for being fat.

It looks like he swallowed another soccer ball.

I understand why Pinky hangs out with the likes of Humpty C, Mugsy and Candelabra now. He looks pretty svelte compared to that group.

Response: That's why you felt it necessary to comment on Gallagher's weight? Nominally employed dieticians/full-time blogging addicts shouldn't throw stones in the glass house of weight control--it smacks of rank hipocrisy. Know what I mean, jellybean?

Your juvenille badmouthing of elected officials is less than grade school level. You demean yourself.

Glendale said...

Nothing is off limits when it comes to the likes of Councilman Dennis Pee Gallagher. The corrupt slime is finally getting a taste of his own medicine.

Queens Crapper said...

I never commented on Gallagher's weight, I said he had a beer belly. Look at the photo. Did I lie?

Second, I am not a dietitian. I work in finance. Get a grip and a life and stop blogging on taxpayer time, Pinky.

As for "juvenile badmouthing," isn't this similar to the pot calling the kettle black?

The president, governor, and mayor have to deal with being made fun of as well as serious criticism all the time. Go for it, Crappy! This is the first time these thin-skinned hacks have ever been challenged, and it's obvious that they can't deal with it, and have to resort to logging on here and striking back. Real politicians would just ignore it.

You're talking about real politicians, but all we have are clubhouse drones.

Pinky must think he's a Kennedy by showing ihs physical abilities before the cameras.

Susan said...

Oh yes, a Kennedy indeed! Shades of ol' Chappaquiddick Teddy!

You see Crapper, it's perfectly ok for a councilman to use his taxpayer-funded time to blog about people's weight on his blog, but when it comes to your blog, you aren't supposed to make allusions about Pinky having a round stomach. That's the way hypocrites like Gallagher behave and think. The world is against them and they are terrific people.

I guess not enough people are visiting his blog since he has stepped up his visits and comments on this one.

What does this guy do all day, anyway? The record proves that he's certainly not writing legislation. The neighborhood proves that he's selling out to developers. And comments on this blog prove that he is insulting people on taxpayer time.

I like the way the tie falls to the side accentuating his belly.

I really have to laugh at this. It's not the headline that insults Pinky. It's the photo. And I am sure that he thought he was going to look real macho when it was being taken.

Taxpayer said...

The reason that particular photo appeared is because Gallagher is using the artificial turf to play artificial soccer with the artificial commissioner to show how slovenly he can look for real.

Pinky the slob couldn't care less if anyone gets cancer from this stuff, as long as he gets his cut of the $150 Million described in the report.

Once he found out that the artificial turf was manufacturing the turf from recycled tires and then did its own "study" reporting that the material was "perfectly safe" (as Gallagher says), has he or Benepe been back on that turf? How about Commissar Bloomberg?

Gallagher, get off the Blogs and get a real job, not the artificial one you now have.

Enough already! I can't stomach any more of these posts!

{Have you ever checked out the beer gut on John Sabini?]

Actually Taxpayer, he said he "welcomes more studies" but that the turf is "perfectly safe." How do you determine that without the results of the additional studies?

Anonymous said...

Overpaid.....over fed.... and under qualified !

That's always an appropriate subject when discussing a politician who's in the pocket of the developers !

If Gallagher can't take the heat as easily as he does his payoffs....then, perhaps, he should resign immediately and not wait out the expiration of his term !

Damn cry baby !!!

verdi said...

"Pinky" won't resign even an hour before his term is up.....because each day he's "on the job"means another dollar !

Well, we all know he never "welcomes more studies".

But, the moron actually believes that by saying that, he looks open-minded.

The fact that he contradicts himself in one sentence goes way over his head. But, we all know that most things go over the head of this little elf.

Right? Crapalaga and Jakie? When will you be able to tell the moron to his face the things you've been telling everyone when he's out of the room?
