Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I have occasionally observed that the members of Team Kimberlin have delusions of adequacy, but that’s not the only delusional behavior. Five years ago today, I poked fun at one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s attempts at chest-thumping as he prepared to defeat my petition for extension of the first peace order issued against him. The post was titled #BillSchmalfeldt and Bluto.

What kind of self-image does Bill Schmalfeldt have?

A reader sent me a link to a tweet with a YouTube video that the Cabin Boy posted this morning. The theme of the video is the lopsided defeat of one football team by another which I guess is supposed to symbolize the thrashing he imagines he will give me in court on 9 December. He’s used scenes lifted from an old Popeye cartoon.

popeye-canIn that cartoon, Bluto’s team is a bunch of large thugs who start out winning by brute force and violating the rules. Does Bill Schmalfeldt really self-identify with Bluto?

One more thing … the Cabin Boy’s little video doesn’t show you what happens after Popeye has his spinach and who really wins in the end.

UPDATE—Final Scorepopeye v bluto

On second thought, the Cabin Boy™ was thoroughly defeated at the court hearing on my petition and his subsequent attempt to have me charged with perjury went nowhere. So like Bluto, he’s a bully and a loser.

And I like spinach.
