About MPS Nicknames

We are frequently asked for a cheat-sheet of all our favorite players. So, just because we love the Scissorheads best of all, here is the list. It will probably be updated frequently.

If it doesn’t fit the nickname rubric, it goes here:

Ameros, by the way, are the One World Order currency that our pal One-L was claiming that the Kenyan Usurper was planning when he takes over all of the Americas and Canadastan, too.

Domestic Tuckerism – setting the outrage agenda when Tucker Carlson decides to rally the forces of racism/sexism/homo-or-transphobia against some weaker group. Punching down.

Tengrain’s Definition of Hypocrisy: Hypocrisy is not about failing to live up to your standards. Hypocrisy is teaching/preaching something you clearly don’t actually believe as demonstrated by your actions.

Tengrain’s Bear Theory: A person doesn’t have to out-run a bear, they have to out-run the person next to them.

Tengrain’s Rule of PeeCee: Whenever a conservative blames anything on being Politically Correct/Woke, what they mean is that Civil Rights or just common courtesy got in their way.

To Melania [something]: Copy and Paste, wholesale plagiarism. Just like Melania Trump did to Michelle Obama.

The MPS Rule on Bribes: If you give someone something in a plain wrapper, that’s a gift. If it has a your name written all over it, that’s a bribe. (H/T Scissorhead Dimitrios)

Trump’s Razor: Ascertain the stupidest possible scenario that can be reconciled with the available facts and that answer is likely correct. An homage to William of Occam.

        May I humbly suggest that any mention of The Donald be replaced with the nickname “Donito Jong Trump.” hat tips to Benito Mussolini and Kim Jong Il.
        Thank you for your consideration.

      I believe that might have been originally coined by Charlie Pierce as was Princess Dumbass of the Northlands (for Palin, of course).

      No, It was Charlie Pierce. I had the blue-eyed Snidely Whiplash Wannabe, but by acclamation Pierce won. I do believe, however, that the abbreviation ZEGS is ours. Small consolation prize.
