I think he just needed a rest.

Gray Bear08 Feb 2021 7:43 a.m. PST

He was positive and upbeat when I visited him. He passed me a note asking for supporters to put cash on his books for cigarettes and other commissary.

In other news, new postings on TMP fell 75%….

Do we need a Red Cross parcel for him?

Personal logo 4th Cuirassier Supporting Member of TMP08 Feb 2021 8:08 a.m. PST

Maybe someone could slip him a copy of Papillon to read. It has some fundamental suggestions on where to hide contraband about the person.

Rock hammer and a Rita Hayworth poster.

Crikey, only 2 days though. Is this the quiet before the storm?

Andrew Walters08 Feb 2021 10:56 a.m. PST

He's the last person I would have anticipated going over the line and getting himself interred. The quote offered on his member page doesn't really make it clear why he got the jug, but it's not a bad time to be careful about what you say.

I assume it is for discussing modern politics.

They say the Dawghouse changes a man…

Tango will never change, he has his own personal cot for the dawghouse.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP08 Feb 2021 12:15 p.m. PST

Surely someone passed him a baseball and a mitt as he headed for the cooler?

14Bore08 Feb 2021 12:25 p.m. PST

Should we send him a cake with a file?

I was just talking to him the other day, and everything seemed fine. I don't know what happened--he said he was just going to step out for a smoke. I think it was the flash-bang that alerted me….

All is well. He was approved for a work detail and earlier today was washing the warden's car in slow motion with very soapy water.

Personal logo John the OFM Supporting Member of TMP08 Feb 2021 12:51 p.m. PST

It's nice to see that he has to follow the rules like everyone else.
Maybe he'll learn.
This gives me a break from insulting nonsense on the Needs More Boobies board.

Doug MSC Supporting Member of TMP08 Feb 2021 1:16 p.m. PST

I've got a "Get of of jail free" card I can give him if they will allow us to see him. But because of Covid, I think they are not allowing visitors at this time.

USAFpilot Supporting Member of TMP08 Feb 2021 1:47 p.m. PST

The irony is the Ultramodern board is full of politics.

Personal logo Murphy Sponsoring Member of TMP08 Feb 2021 1:52 p.m. PST

Saw him busting chopping weeds on the roadside yesterday. Singing some sweet southern soulful gospel with the rest of the boys. Boss man was standing about 10 feet behind 'em…Cigarette in his mouth…eyes hidden behind those shades, and an itchy finger on that twelve gauge Remington pump shotgun….He was hoping someone like Tango would try to make a break for it….

Art08 Feb 2021 1:54 p.m. PST

Oh…I thought he was in the Dawghouse for not following the arrows at the supermarket.

I don't stand on those X's on the floor of the supermarket – I've seen enough roadrunner cartoons to know not to fall for that.

Let's hope he gets into an egg eating contest.

Glad you like them boys! (smile)

Sundance09 Feb 2021 6:26 a.m. PST

Long overdue and should have been DHed frequently, IMO.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP09 Feb 2021 7:38 a.m. PST

I'd stifled and ignored him some time back. Articles regretting the existence of the United States do not help paint miniatures or fight AWI battles, and his nudes were spikey. I do not regard spikeyness as attractive in a female.

Extrabio1947 Supporting Member of TMP09 Feb 2021 7:41 a.m. PST

When Tango gets DH'd, it doesn't take very long to look through the message boards, especially when you pass over topics that are of no interest to you.

I hope he gets time off for good behavior. 😉

And to those of us who identify as ankylosaurs and styracosaurs.

Or unicorns and rhinos, 4th Cuirassier and Javelin. Especially we mustn't neglect the unicorns.

Sure is!
That's what the "Nude and Semi-Nude Figures – NSFW" Board used to be called, until a TMP exile raised a stink about it. So, we had a Poll which resulted in a purely cosmetic name change, but no change in content. grin

Now, I'm a traditionalist. I call World War One The Great War. I'm indifferent to Polls results. Now, I will of course place great faith in a "Emmylou Harris Greatest Hit" poll, but few others. That's important! But not a mere name change.
I prefer to call it the Needs More Boobies Board. Just because.

((By the way, last night I stumbled across Herself singing Merle Haggard's "Today I Started Loving You Again". My heart stopped at the sheer loveliness of her voice and the album cover. It's right up there with the achingly sad "Red Dirt Girl", and Tulsa Queen. And the Trio albums with Dolly and Linda, and Pancho and Lefty, and Hello Stranger, and….))

My first thought on seeing the title.
"Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah."

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP09 Feb 2021 2:28 p.m. PST

Now there's a thought, 4th. Bring a firearm into a school with a zero-tolerance policy, and explain that it doesn't identify as a weapon. See how long it takes them to work that one through.

But of course both trans and cisunicorns. The grandchildren of our present schoolkids are going to have hysterics reading about the early 21st Century.

Those that can still read, of course.

Tangos in the DH….? Standards are slipping – there used to be a strict "waltz only" rule and even that was Fridays only…..

Why am I just hearing about this now??!?!

Zephyr109 Feb 2021 8:56 p.m. PST

"only 2 days though"

Which will give him time to find and then post 50 topics a day instead of 20 when he gets back… ;-)

skirmishcampaigns09 Feb 2021 9:05 p.m. PST

Oh, so now the rest of us can actually share some posts now?

Nine pound round10 Feb 2021 4:12 a.m. PST

I bet he's enjoying the fact that he can generate traffic even without posting.

Personal logo deadhead Supporting Member of TMP10 Feb 2021 4:58 a.m. PST

T minus eight hours and counting…..

Politics. Funny thing is that, if you go to the Homepage and check out the Dawghouse…it reproduces word for word what he said that breached the no politics rule. Even then he seems to have only quoted a new item, not expressed a personal opinion (on a topic not remotely related to Wargaming I do admit)

Personal logo 20thmaine Supporting Member of TMP10 Feb 2021 6:23 a.m. PST

He's the last person I would have anticipated going over the line and getting himself interred. The quote offered on his member page doesn't really make it clear why he got the jug, but it's not a bad time to be careful about what you say.

Too true – I got 6 days (6 days!!!!!) recently for commenting, with no context at all, that I was feeling a little happier than I had for a while. This was in the LOUNGE! That was also deemed to be politics.

Six more hours until Tango01's victorious return – bet he's found some good stuff in the last 2 days!

He better not have touched my things while in there!
I spent a lot of time getting my cell just right.
