lord baron talbot is my homeboy

We like just realized that we haven't posted since Thursday. This makes us feel super guilty, especially since it's not like we have jobs or anything. Rest assured, we love each and every one of you.

We're preparing for our road trip in August.
We just calculated the price of gas and laughed at the universe for making it so much less expensive than we expected it to be.
We have very few actual attractions that we plan on visiting, but the main one is called Little Talbot Island near Jacksonville.
It has a really nice beach.

And in other parts it's basically Middle Earth.


The campground is on Little Talbot, but on Big Talbot Island there are many things to see and do as well. We plan to take full advantage of the Talbot Islands.
Kim says this is actually a picture of Max Talbot's soul.
She may be right.

The islands were named for a Lord Baron Talbot by the English general James Oglethorpe. Lord Baron Talbot is clearly just a thinly veiled alias invented by Florida State Parks. We can't find out which Lord Baron Talbot they're talking about. Also, the island was originally settled by French Huguenots, which is all the proof we'll ever need.

In honor of the islands and our affection for them we provide you with a brand spanking new coloring sheet:
Click for full size!
We suggest creating your own background for this one, as there is a lot of white space.
Perhaps you want to put the Lord Baron in his castle.
Or in a sylvan glade.
Maybe he's at Ed Hardy looking at new t-shirts.
Use this creative prompt to prepare yourselves, because we're gearing up to have a coloring contest later this month. We have specific prizes in mind. If you think coloring is too gay, leave another contest suggestion in the comments. (We're thinking of our male readers here, but that doesn't mean you guys can't break out the Crayola and still be men.)

Color away!
Send to puckhuffers@gmail.com and we'll post the best ones on the site as inspiration.

Lord Baron Talbot wills it.
Go Pens.

yes coloring! just as good as making a Blingee. And have fun at Lord Talbot's islands. I'm sure Max already gave you his blessings :)

Ashley said...

and I just may make a Blingee instead, by the way

wmh said...

Coloring! yes! this is going to be the best contest ever!

Candy Man Fan said...

I love coloring and am unemployed so I am all about this contest.

also, that banner is the fiercest PH will ever see. I can't breathe. Saaarge

AmyB said...

Yay! Moar coloring and moar contests. Road trip sounds amazing. We're taking a hockey road trip to Toronto in the fall and I can't wait.

Carol said...

you are visiting pretty much the major attraction in North Florida, unless you want to see gators!

A few tips:

1. South Carolina has wicked cheap gas. It's kinda scary that I think of $2.38/gal as wicked cheap, but anyway...
2. North Carolina drivers like to tailgate the way Chris Osgood likes to eat donuts, so watch out.
3. Mosquitos out on the islands view you as a 24-hour, all-they-can-eat buffet...

Have a kick-ass time!

I wasn't planning on drinking this weekend. Now I am. Nothing like drunk coloring. The Talbot Islands seem to have a mystique about them. Have fun. I am very intrigued.

Someone needs to create a dude's version of Blingee. Perhaps Manglee with lots of options for bewbs?

OK, I'll go away now.

JSt11 said...

Hey now there are some manly fucking stamps on Blingee. Just gotta dig a little.

article on the Kings and a few choice words from the Virtuous One

AmyB said...

Goddamn you. I do not need to read about Rob Scuderi and his goddamn beaches first thing in the morning JSt11. Bitch.

Caitlin said...

Talbot's soul for sure.

Your site got blocked at my work! but IT did something last night where it's automatically blocking anything that looks remotely fun i suppose. i don't know how i will be able to start my day now... so that's why i'm late commenting.

As for the Max coloring sheet.. i know what i'll be doing at work tomorrow =)

smithda said...

Hmmm...I was expecting Max's soul to have more darkness, flames and writhing tortured bodies but the sharp jaggedy thing was spot on!

While on Talbot island..beware and stay off of the moors.

Sykora won't be back with the Pens.

""It's never a good thing when you are coached by a former teammate. On top of that, he used to be a player who drifted around as a fourth-liner. I was younger than him, played on the top line, scored goals, was the little star. Now the roles got reversed, and from the first moment I had a feeling that he let me 'eat it.' I honestly say that I have not had liked him even as a teammate. Which does not happen to me often.""

Ashley said...

No more Petr Fevr. :(

AmyB said...

@Penguins Experience: Ouch. That hurts.

Carol said...

oh Petey... it's been awesome, but, yeah, I'd say that pretty much kills Pittsburgh for you!

I knew he probably wasn't going to come back, but I'm still fucking crying. I wish he didn't have to leave with all this drama. Fuck.

I'll love him always for Game 5 last year, his first hattrick this year, and his general insane joy at everything on Earth.

Fuck fuck fuck.
