Newsblusterer Noel Sheppard is all blustered up because Chris Matthews called Rush Limbaugh an “underwater walrus.” The cause for Noel’s concern is not that Rush doesn’t indeed bear a striking resemblance to a drenched walrus in an open black shirt. No, Noel is clutching his pearls over this because he thinks that “underwater walrus” is an obscene reference of some kind.
Say what? Does he mean this walrus? Has Noel been sneaking onto the Urban Dictionary site again when his wife was out shopping? No, apparently Noel is thinking of this NSFW YouTube video which, surprisingly, was completely unknown to me until Noel was kind enough to point it out.
Of course, the real question is not whether Matthews was calling a Rush an obese, leather-skinned auto-fellating sea mammal, which, really, is far too kind given Rush’s two obvious physical impediments to auto-fellation. No, the real question is how the prissy-pants Newsblusterer himself knew about this video. Or why it was the first thing that popped into his mind when he heard the word walrus. And how often he’s seen it. And what he does while watching it. And whether Noel is this woman’s husband.
At least Matthews didn’t call Limbaugh an angry pirate.
