Citadel Bulldogs Vs Alabama Crimson Tide

College football Saturdays down South are serious business.  Nothing, but nothing interferes with it.  This, however, is Cupcake Saturday in the SEC so you are cleared to tackle those pesky items on your Honey-Do List.

After the Citadel Bulldogs were crowned 2016 Southern Conference Champions, Head Coach Brent Thompson said of the 2018 schedule which included the Crimson Tide, “These games are important for many reasons and they allow us to provide our cadet-athletes with once-in-a-lifetime experiences.  I’m excited that our team will have the experience of playing in front of more than 100,000 fans against one of the premier teams in college football.”

By any objective measure, this contest will be one of the biggest mismatches of the year in college football. The Citadel rode buses nearly 8 hours from Charleston, SC to Tuscaloosa to be out-manned at virtually every position. For the Bulldogs this game is not about winning; it’s about the money.

One Citadel player, 2006 alum Porter Johnson, chose to have some fun with the overwhelming odds his Dogs face this weekend:
Last week the Mississippi State Bulldogs were the victim of ludicrous officiating by the SEC referees.

On Bama’s first possession of the game there appeared to be a fumble by Damien Harris before his knee touched the ground that was never reviewed.  Minutes later the Tide scored at TD.

At the end of the first half, Missy’s sophomore RB Kylin Hill scored a TD only to have it called back when WR Deddrick Thomas was penalized for an illegal block in the back. Replays shown in real time and slow-motion showed the Tide defender was never touched.  
The booth’s failure to a review a clear fumble and the official’s phantom flag for a penalty that did not happen gave plenty of ammo to the throng of Bama haters who frequently flap their gums claiming it isn’t fair that teams have to compete with Alabama and the refs calling the game.

Mississippi State Athletic Director John Cohen complained to the Conference saying, “I’ve personally communicated with the coordinator of football officials, Steve Shaw, and SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. Both of them assured me that Saturday’s game with Alabama is being fully reviewed and they also stated that the official issues will be identified swiftly and dealt with directly.”

As a dyed-in-the-wool Bama fan since the 1950s, I cannot defend the zebras sorry officiating nor dispel the charges of “Bama Bias” and “Alabama Collusion”.  This team is either good enough on its own or its not.  The zebras should not do anything to cheapen their season.  There.  I said it.  Now, on to the cupcakes of The Citadel and the impending decimation of War Eagle in the Iron Bowl.

Basta La Vista Creepy Porn Lawyer

At 5:50 PM Wednesday afternoon, the scandal sheet TMZ published a report revealing creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti had been arrested on charges of felony domestic violence.

Avenatti was released after posting $50,000 bail, at which point, he made a brief public statement claiming he would be “fully exonerated” following an investigation.
Initial reports said the woman involved was Avenatti’s estranged wife Lisa Storie-Avenatti however her attorney disputed the report saying, “Ms. Storie-Avenatti was not subject to any such incident on Tuesday night. Further, she was not at Mr. Avenatti’s apartment on the date that this alleged incident occurred. My client states that there has never been domestic violence in her relationship with Michael and that she has never known Michael to be physically violent toward anyone.”

The woman who actually was involved in the alleged physical altercation reportedly scrambled from the apartment where the incident occurred and was spotted on the sidewalk holding her hands over her eyes while shouting into her cell phone. “I can’t believe you did this to me.”

Five minutes later, Avenatti arrived at the apartment complex and yelled repeatedly, “She hit me first,” then, “This is bullshit, this is fucking bullshit.” The alleged melee occurred after the woman attempted to pick up her belongings and called 911 after tempers ran hot.

“We’re told her face was ‘swollen and bruised’ with ‘red marks’ on both cheeks,” TMZ reports. 

While the creepy porn lawyer is attempting to burnish his credentials as a potential 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, he is facing mounting legal entanglements, including a possible criminal investigation by the Justice Department. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has asked for a criminal investigation into whether Julie Swetnick and Avenatti conspired to provide false statements to Congress and obstructed a congressional investigation during the confirmation process for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Grassley wrote in a letter to the Justice Department that Swetnick and Avenatti made serious allegations that required significant resources to investigate. However, Grassley says information from media interviews and elsewhere indicates their statements “likely contained materially false claims.”

The Vermont Democratic Party canceled Avenatti's appearances for Friday and Saturday following his arrest, and it will refund all ticket sales, according to VDP Communications Director Christopher Di Mezzo.

The decision to cancel the events was made "almost immediately after the news broke," he said.

The creepy porn lawyer’s aspirations may just have suffered a setback.  What a pity. (stifles laughter)

Doing His Best Napoleon Impression

Europe’s self-proclaimed “strong man”, Emmanuel Macron, hosted newly elected President Donald Trump in 2017 when he visited France for the July 14th Bastille Day celebration at Dôme des Invalides where Napoléon is entombed.

Two months earlier, Macron celebrated his historic presidential victory at the Louvre as the youngest French ruler since Napoléon himself.  He stood beside the Louvre’s Pyramid on the square Cour Napoléon, once the home of the kings of France.  Rather than entering the square to the sounds of “La Marseillaise”, the French national anthem for hundreds of years, he ordered the playing of “Ode to Joy” by German composer Ludwig von Beethoven.

When Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Macron, he hosted him at Versailles, the sumptuous palace that became the symbol of France’s absolute monarchy.

I think you get where I’m going here. Macron equates himself as one of a caste of befeathered emperors and perfumed prince bishops that ruled Europe for centuries. 

It doesn’t end there. Like Louis XIV, the Sun King who said “L'état, c'est moi” (I am the state), Macron is egotistical enough to court the Illuminati-esoterica crowd at Bilderberg comparing himself to the Roman god Jupiter who weighs his rare pronouncements carefully and sits above the fray of regular affairs.  What a schmuck.

Eighteen months into his term as France’s president, Macron’s approval ratings continue to slip, with only 26 percent of French people saying they have confidence in him.

The reason the French are disenchanted was outlined in a published report by the Los Angeles Times on October 3, 2017:

“He alienated conservatives by engaging in an ugly public spat with the army, France's most beloved institution, over his proposal to cut nearly $1 billion in defense spending in order to meet EU deficit targets. The army chief, Gen. Pierre de Villiers, resigned in protest after Macron suggested in newspaper interviews that he was angry at having his decisions questioned.”

“Last month, he annoyed liberals when he called opponents of his economic reforms "lazy"—recalling an incident from 2016 when, as Hollande's economy minister, he retorted to a pro-labor demonstrator who jeered at his well-tailored suit: ‘The best way to afford a suit is to work.’"

“The elitist moniker has stuck to Macron as he pushes ahead with his first salvo in the reform battle: undoing some of the protections guaranteed to French workers, perhaps the most pampered labor force in the industrialized world.”

Speaking at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris at a World War I commemoration ceremony attended by President Trump and 70 other world leaders, Macron suggested nationalism could lead to the same death and devastation seen during that war.

“Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By saying our interests first, who cares about the others, we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what makes it great and what is essential: its moral values.  I know there are old demons which are coming back to the surface. They are ready to wreak chaos and death. History sometimes threatens to take its sinister course once again.”

You don’t have to be a supporter of President Trump to feel the outrage of such a smug lecture. Maybe Mr. Macron should have first reflected on the nearly 117,000 Americans who made the supreme sacrifice in World War I or the 29,000 who perished on the French coast of Normandy in Operation Overlord on D-Day during World War II who saved his country about nationalism.

American nationalism animated our mighty republic to save France and the world twice during those conflagrations.

Instead of displaying a shred of gratitude for being liberated by the first superpower in world history uninterested in conquest he gave America an imperious dressing down.  My father was on Omaha Beach on D-Day. 

When President Ronald Reagan commemorated the 40th anniversary of D-Day, he stood on the very spot where Allied soldiers had stormed ashore to liberate Europe from the yoke of Nazi tyranny.  Speaking to the veterans who climbed the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc he said, “You are men who in your lives fought for life and left the vivid air signed with your honor.”

On June 5, 1940 Nazi forces penetrated French Gen. Maxime Weygand’s forces on the Somme River and began to march south toward Paris, reaching the capital on June 14.  The city had been abandoned by the French government and the Nazis were allowed to march down the Champs-Élysées as Parisians watched in shock and sadness.

Were it not for America, the French would be speaking German. It’s no wonder an old joke persists even today about the French military:  one of white flags, hands thrust aloft and tails tucked between their legs in retreat.

FOR SALE:  French rifle.  Never fired.  Dropped only once.

Poor Planning On Your Part Does Not Constitute An Emergency On My Part

The Bronx Bolshevik, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who beat the pants off Democrat Machine Joe Crowley back in June won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2018 Midterm Election. 

She now joins hair-brained, dimwitted colleagues Nancy Palsi, Mad Max Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee and Fredrica Wilson, but there’s a glitch.

In an interview with The New York Times published on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez called the transition into becoming a lawmaker "very unusual, because I can’t really take a salary. I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real."

She and her “partner” have been “just kind of squirreling away and then hoping that gets me to January.” This “squirreling away” she speaks of─would that be the money she cheated a co-worker out of?

According to the New York Post, Cortez made $560 in tips during the Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2017.  When it came time to split the tips, she only gave the waitress $50.  After complaining to the manager of the bar, Cortez was forced to double the take to $100.

The waitress who was rooked by Cortez said, “It says so much about her character.  From that point on I wouldn’t talk to her.  I couldn’t look at her.”  According to the published report, Cortez could not be reached for comment.

Now, for someone who graduated from Boston University with a major in economics and international relations, you’d think she would plan for her financial future for the long term.

Apparently, like her mentor Sen. Bernie Sanders, she’s an authentic airhead. Former Senator Joe Lieberman said of Cortez, “She seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”

Rather than joining the Democratic Socialist Party she should have joined the party made famous by the eccentric Jimmy McMillan of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party.  This fellow is so bizarre, Saturday Night Live featured him in a skit.

Cortez did herself no favors when she posed for an interview in a $3500 ensemble designed by Gabriela Heart and black stilettos from Manolo Blahnik.  At least she wasn’t wearing Chanel.

Like Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro, once Socialists gain power, they have closets filled with expensive clothes while their countrymen go hungry.  That’s how the Socialism thing works.

Is the wunderkind of the Left too good to sleep in her office like Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Reps. Dan Donovan, Gregory Meeks, Lee Zeldin, John Katko and Brian Higgins?

Shoot, she could save anywhere between $25,000 and $30,000 that isn’t claimed at tax time and she would get free cable, electricity and janitorial service.

Mississippi State Bulldogs Vs Alabama Crimson Tide

Last year the Tide needed to score 14 points to come from behind against Hail State on their home turf.  They did.  The final score was 31-24.

Mississippi State’s QB, Nick Fitzgerald, believes he can replicate those three strong quarters and marshal his Bulldogs offense to a victory at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Fitzgerald knows that last year has no bearing on today’s game in Tuscaloosa, but he’s confident knowing they held the lead until the fourth quarter giving him the motivation he and his team will need if they hope to beat Bama on the road.

These two teams have done battle on the gridiron going all the way back to 1896 and the series history shows the Crimson Tide has owned the Dogs 80-3-18.  ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives the Boys from Tuscaloosa an 89.7% chance of victory.

No cupcake, MSST was ranked No. 18 last week in the College Football Playoff rankings and rose to No. 16 after drubbing War Eagle 23-9.

Paul Finebaum said last week the only way Bama suffers a loss on its way to the playoffs is if Tua Tagovailoa gets injured.  “I think we’ve come to that conclusion and it didn’t take 10 weeks to do it,” he said.

CBS analyst Gary Danielson believes the only two teams that have a shot at beating Alabama this season are Clemson and Georgia.  Kirby Smart’s Bulldawgs are currently two touchdown underdogs. We’ll know if Danielson was right on December 1st in Atlanta when they clash in the SEC Championship Game. Dabo will seek revenge against Saban’s Murderball if the fates pair them in the CFP Playoffs.

Hail State’s Head Coach, Joe Moorhead, doesn’t give a whit about their 10-game losing streak to the Tide saying, “We have to concentrate on the things we need to do.  We’re going to have to have great practices.  We have to have great urgency and body language.  Our scout team will have to be great because it’s almost impossible to replicate what Alabama does in all three phases.”  Sounds like a plan to me.

Every team that goes into Davis Wade Stadium is subjected to 61,000 infernal Bully Bells.  The Hail Staters truly believe those damn things intimidate the opposing team.  Well, they don’t.  They’re annoying as hell.  There won’t be any cowbells in Bryant-Denny Stadium.  No siree.

The Bulldogs will be treated to the sounds of the roar of a rampaging elephant over the stadium loudspeakers and AC/DC’s “Hell’s Bells” on every Bama third down.  Oh, and let’s not forget the Athletic Director is once again allowing “Dixieland Delight” to be played at the beginning of the fourth quarter.  That alone will strike fear into Coach Moorhead’s boys and spur the Crimson Tide on to victory.

It's Cheaper To Hire Corrupt Election Board Supervisors Than To Buy Campaign Ads

Whatever your opinion of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) may be, you have to cheer him on as he sounds the alarm about the fate of the Sunshine State’s governorship. “Democrat lawyers are descending on Florida.  They have been very clear they aren’t here to make sure every vote is counted.  They are here to change the results of the election and Broward [County] is where they plan to do it.”

Perkins Coie lawyer Marc Elias has been enlisted in a recount effort. Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is retaining Elias, who said it’s “not plausible” that, as Broward statistics suggest, 14,000 people voted in sometimes-obscure state level races but left the Senate one blank.

The DNC and Clinton campaign used Perkins Coie to hire Fusion GPS, a shadowy research and public relations firm known for their alleged smear campaigns and funded by George Soros’ Democracy Integrity Project in a quest for dirt on Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who, by initial appearances, beat Nelson in a race for the U.S. Senate, said Elias will use aggressive techniques to “steal” the election.

Florida’s Broward County Supervisor of Elections is none other than the notoriously incompetent and corrupt Brenda Snipes who has violated both state and federal laws.

Rubio said Snipes’s office “has a history of violating the law.” He attached a news article about a court ruling against Snipes.

While a lawsuit seeking access to ballots from a 2016 congressional primary was pending, Snipes’ office prematurely destroyed the ballots.

She called it a mistake. A circuit court judge ruled in May that her office broke federal and state law by destroying the ballots too soon after the August 2016 primary, while the lawsuit was pending.

She OK’d the ballot destruction a year after the primary. The law requires preservation of the ballots for 22 months.

Cocaine Mitch Sends His Regards

The notorious RBG, who is recuperating at George Washington University Hospital after fracturing three ribs in her office Wednesday night, was not in attendance at today’s Supreme Court Ceremonial Investiture of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

They’re fitting her for bionic ribs in an effort to extend her lifespan.  Democrats may have to laminate her if they don’t want to cede ground on the Supreme Court or they’ll have to run a stealthy ruse for the entirety of Trump’s presidency.

Someone may need to be tasked with lining Ginsburg’s office with pillows.

People, especially really stupid younger people, were offering the octogenarian their own ribs on social media starting the hashtag #RibsForRuth on Twitter.
Many of the judges of the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit were in attendance including Judge Merrick Garland who was nominated to the Supreme Court in 2016 by The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer. Garland was not given a confirmation hearing or a Senate vote.  The seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death remained open for more than a year so the new president could fill the vacancy.

Sitting several rows ahead of Garland was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with his wife Elaine Chao.  Also in attendance was Sen. Lindsay Graham and White House Counsel Don McGahn.

President Trump and First Lady Melania were seated in the front row alongside retired Justice Anthony Kennedy who Kavanaugh succeeds on the bench.

Kavanaugh accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is still being harassed, her lawyers say. She's reportedly had to move four times. She's had to pay for a private security detail. And she hasn't been able to return to her job at Palo Alto University.  Bless her heart.

Jim, You Dog

Ever since video which captured the contentiousness between CNN’s Jim Acosta and President Trump during a post-midterm press conference emerged, both sides of the ideological aisle have weighed in on the “touching/accosting” of a White House intern who job it was to pass the microphone to journalism activists.

The Left has accused White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders of tweeting a manipulated version of the encounter.  The rage from the Left escalated late Wednesday afternoon after his press credentials were suspended until further notice.

The accusation that the tweeted version was manipulated was challenged by Paul Joseph Watson who stated unequivocally the video was not “doctored”.  He used the C-SPAN video that was readily available and “merely zoomed in”.

Watson added, “Nice try to distract from Acosta’s behavior, but this kind of dishonesty is why the media has a massive trust issue.  Please correct your stories.”

Jim “Assaulta” went on his network to say he never touched the intern in the manner portrayed by White House officials.
Former CBS News reporter Dan Rather chimed in saying, “News the White House pulled Jim Acosta’s credentials is not an attack on one journalist but all of the press. There should be complete solidarity. This is a moment for any Republican who says they believe in the Constitution to stand up.

Rather should have sat this one out.  He’s the so-called “journalist” who clusterfucked a 60 Minutes segment in 2004 in which he alleged George W. Bush had received preferential treatment to enter the National Guard in 1968 and, as evidence, produced six documents with the typeface and spacing that was inconsistent with any known typewriter of the early 70’s all in an effort to tip the presidential election in favor of Democrat John Kerry.  Rather’s reputation has been sewage ever since.

If you’ve seen the video, you saw Acosta’s arm touch, strike, hit or incidentally come in contact with the intern’s arm.  For him to go on-air and claim he “never” touched her is a lie.  Laying hands on a White House intern is Bill Clinton’s job.

In order for the White House to win this latest battle with CNN, the credentials of this cretin should be permanently revoked, otherwise allowing him back in will make things even worse.
UPDATE: See tweet below asserting the video WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted WAS NOT doctored.

Get Off My Lawn

Jim Acosta caricature courtesy of political cartoonist Sean Delonas
The White House is suspending CNN Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta's press credentials for what WH Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deemed "absolutely unacceptable" conduct.
"I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH," Acosta tweeted. "Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit."
Sanders announced the punishment in a lengthy statement on Wednesday night, several hours after Acosta got into verbal fisticuffs with President Trump saying the seizing of his credentials by the Secret Service was because of his “placing hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.”
The arrogant sumbitch can be seen on video pushing away, somewhat forcefully, a young intern who was endeavoring to retrieve the microphone so another member of the press could ask a question during Wednesday’s press conference.
At 4:52 PM, the hero of the resistance recorded his encounter with the Secret Service.  It was reminiscent of the scene in National Lampoon’s “Vacation” in which John Candy said to the Griswold family, “Sorry folks, park's closed. Moose out front shoulda told ya.”
Acosta is not allowed on the White House grounds until further notice.

No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide Vs No. 3 LSU Tigers

The game is simple.  The best ones always are.

It’s been seven long years since the “Game of the Century”. That’s the longest winning streak in the series since Coach Bear Bryant claimed eleven in a row from 1971 to 1981.  The streak lingers like a dark shadow over the Cajun Nation.

The last time LSU beat Alabama was November 6, 2010.  LSU was ranked No. 10 and Bama was ranked No. 6.  The Tigers were trailing the Tide 14-13 in the fourth quarter when Coach Les Miles called for a reverse play to tight end DeAngelo Peterson who rambled for 23 yards to Alabama’s 3-yard line and the go-ahead touchdown. LSU went for the 2-point conversion to make the score 21-14.  LSU was able to add another 3 points on a FG attempt with 5:34 left in the game making the score 24-14.

Bama QB Greg McElroy tossed to Julio Jones for a TD with 3:23 left in the game but it wasn’t enough to pull off a win.  The final score was 24-21.

Under the lights of Death Valley, the Crimson Tide will clash with the Bayou Bengal Tigers of LSU for the 14th time in which both teams have been ranked in the AP Top 20.  Nine times one of them has been ranked either No. 1 or No. 2.

The College Football Playoff Committee released its first rankings on October 30th with LSU in the No. 3 slot. A lot of people expect Alabama to keep rolling.
LSU is a legitimate contender in the race for the national championship coming into tonight’s game.  I have the utmost respect for the Tigers.  They’ve got the best QB in Joe Burrows they’ve had in years and he’s made a substantive difference for these tenacious rivals.  This will be a bare-knuckled, slobber-knocker grudge match.  If they beat Bama they will be in the driver’s seat for a playoff berth and the Cajun Nation will be insufferable.

This is LSU Hate Week.  This is a good hate; this is a respectful hate; this is a rivalry that has become far more meaningful over the past 25 years than most rivalries the media crow about.

Hawaiian phenom Tua Tagovailoa remains at the controls of the most intimidating offense in the FBS and has yet to take a fourth-quarter snap in 2018. LSU is the team with the greatest chance of ruining the Tide’s dreams of an unprecedented 18th National Championship.  As such, this may well be the game in which Tagovailoa will finally play in the fourth quarter.

"Alabama has always been the benchmark and Coach Saban has done a fantastic job," Head Coach Ed Orgeron said. "He's going to go down as the greatest college football coach in the history of the game, so give him the credit for what they've done at Alabama.

"We've got to beat them to get to where we want to go and that's a fact."

During this Thursday’s “Hey Coach” press conference, Saban had this to say: 
Oz Music, a Tuscaloosa music store, immortalized the quote by turning it into a good old-fashioned election button: 
So, to the Cajun Nation I say, ”Tell ‘em Alabama’s coming and hell is coming with ‘em.”

Ahh, Poor Babies. HBO Is Annoyed With President Trump

"On November 5th, the United States will reimpose sanctions that were lifted as part of the nuclear deal on Iran's energy, shipbuilding, shipping, and banking sectors," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said today.

"The administration's efforts to change Iranian behavior are far broader, far deeper.  There are many other lines of effort.  We're simply focused on this line of effort today because of the significance of November 5th."

President Trump was focused on sanctions as well, following up on Pompeo's comments by tweeting a Game of Thrones-style image of himself with the words "Sanctions Are Coming."

If you’re not a fan of the HBO blockbuster, the tweet was a play on the show’s tagline “Winter Is Coming” signaling the arrival of a wintry hell and an ancient race of humanoid ice creatures who pose a threat to every living thing in Westeros.

The President’s tweet pissed off HBO causing them to issue a statement saying, “We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.”

Asked if HBO planned to take legal action, network spokesman Jeff Cusson told CNBC there were "no further steps."
A little later, the official White House Twitter account clarified the President’s earlier tweet.
Even though Maisie Williams, who portrays Arya Stark and Sophie Turner, who portrays her sister Sansa in the hit show both tweeted their disgust, it should be noted Game of Thrones is itself a show depicting extreme corruption and politics.
Even the twice-failed presidential candidate, Granny Clinton, compared herself to another character, Cersei Lannister, in her flop of a memoir, “What Happened.”

And then the Daily Wire mocked Elizabeth Warren to a fare-thee-well:
In 2012, HBO was forced to apologize for a grisly scene in which President George W. Bush’s head was shown sitting atop a barbarian’s spike.  "We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste," the cable channel said in a statement. "We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this inadvertent, careless mistake. We are sorry this happened and will have it removed from any future DVD production."

NOTE FROM OUR ATTORNEY:  If the babies at HBO assert “there are no other steps” to be taken against the President’s GOT imagery, I guess the only thing I have to concern myself with are the mullahs I pissed off with this Photoshop™.
