    I wonder if Jimmy would have a better chance if just Pig played…

    Rat’s idea of a perfect opponent.

    well, B.O.B. the Blob didn’t have a brain, coz, it just turns out you don’t really need one.

    Brainless, spineless Loser! Rat’s favorite kind of opponent; but how is Jimmy managing to stay up there to play Trivial Pursuit, if I may ask a trivial question?

    Sweet. Interesting juxtaposition of jellyfish with no brain and Texas, the no-bull state known for out-lying nearby Oklahoma as well as many other states and citizens of the Union. And of course to think that ‘blue’ could ever represent Texas on the map due to the uncanny prevalence and effect of brainless jellyfish which have over almost eons swept ashore with the tide, become light as foam and distintegrated into millions of tiny, airborn spores which fly on the breezes and have continually fastened on the heads, grown into the adult stage, and eaten the brains of the humanoids inhabiting thereof, thereby actually replacing most of the once-humane and welcoming Texas open-heartedness and mannerly humane functions with many simple, on-off automatic brainless motor, mental, especially verbal phases and behaviors…or so it would appear, as reported to me by several native Americans of good patriotic character and a couple of well-educated and American-favorable foreigners…all
    considered good judges of mankind by many…one wonders at the horrible fate of such poor, unhuman but still quivering
    human-shaped creatures who have been at the mercy of these aireborn evansecent brain-eating jellyfish in further states, such as Arizona…which evidently suffers from the bain-brain-eating and substitute-process of the most virulent and strongest of the brain-eaters, the ones having been strong, virulent and dominant enough to cross the great expanse into Arizona, and thus the many primitive subhumanalities of behavior now exhibited by the jelly-fish-eaten brain-altered once-human citizens of Arizona. Pity, but there’s nothing to do. Like a drowning
    person, it would be foolish to go in too quickly, they would strike out and climb on you in their desperation and their dumb, hysteric panic…instead of intervening now, we must wait until they go down for the third time, until they have exhausted their madness, and then we throw them a rope to sensibility and life again, if they merit it. If they really do foam at the mouth, then there really is only one humane intervention possible…they must be given release, blessed release from their earthly pains and thus deliver them from the curse of evil thoughts toward their fellow humans, Americans all. At that point they have, actually, become fetid zombies mostly, and there is only one thing to be done with them. Everybody undertsands that.

    Jimmy the Jellyfish may be brainless, but he knows the sting of defeat.

    But yet we have plenty of jobs, a balanced budget and people from smarts states such as California and New York are moving here as quick as they can. Only problem is that they drove their states into bankruptcy because they were so smart and they are trying to get Texas to follow the same failed policies that work so well for them. Because they are so much smarter and know better.

    You do know you have become the person people say “oh God not her again” when you write something. Also try writing something with out spewing so much hate and insutlts.

    If you hate Texas don’t come here. Won’t bother us a bit.

    I take offense that it portrays Jimmys in such a negative tone. Jimmys are a very proud people with a rich history, and we have brains (except for maybe Jimmy Olsen).

    I have to stay out of Texas. All my exes live there, and they spend their time shopping with George Strait’s exes. Hey, George, got a new song for you, “Abilene Alimony Blues.”
