Sister in Zion

  • kalki

    I agree. She may be wearingn a bun, but she’s one tough bitch. I don’t think she could take Bucky, but it would be close…

  • Jennifer in Kansas City

    Wow, and I thought *I/* clenched my jaw.

  • August95

    Be afraid, be very afraid.

  • LadyBug

    That woman definitely has the pissed-off expression of someone raising 172 children, and married to a man with 6 other wives.

  • francey

    dude… #77!

  • Nathan Logan

    I would say something about pre-100 being a rarity these days, but that would be far too cliche. Instead, I’ll say that that’s one scary lady. She looks like a shape-shifter.

    Which brings up a good question, what *do* shape-shifters look like?

  • Seven

    She had a bad rhinoplasty…

  • TulsaOkie

    Very Stoic.

    I know I’m a bit slow, but I’m glad the daily pictures are back and that comments are open. I missed them both!

  • k rain

    Hrmph. Well, I actually could have been first this morning. Damnit.

  • Terri

    Great shot.

    LMAO at your aunt. Going commando at Easter?

  • jordan

    My friend’s mom used to cut her hair just like that when we were little.

    She would make her stand on the front porch in her underwear, put a bowl on her head, and cut around it.

    I’m completely serious.

  • Torrie

    I hate underwear.

  • Susie

    Her name was LOLA,
    she was a showgirl…

  • LadyBug

    Your post about Aunt Lola makes me want to shout “OF UNDERPANTS!!!!”

  • mrtl

    Would Aunt Lola done be pissed if she knew how public her worst nightmare has become?

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    ohmygod, no visible panty lines on Aunt Lola!
    How does one “forget” to put on underpants? Do you reckon Aunt Lola was just takin’ a walk on the wild side?
    And, I will probably be so sorry I asked this, why would she be physically uncomfortable without her panties?
    (I almost don’t want to know the answer, and I almost do, y’know?)

  • Susie

    Well, I’m not dumb but I can’t understand
    why she walks like a woman and talks like a man
    Oh my Lola, lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo Lola

  • Susie

    Aunt Lola and her unencumbered parts just make me feel like singin’!

  • mrtl

    The evil part of me wants to look up Lola’s prison bitch name. Hamilton?

  • Torrie

    My mom used to sing this song to me:
    “I see London, I see France. I see Torrie’s underpants”

    It explains a lot about my dementia, no?

  • greenthumb

    Why don’t we have names like that anymore? Lola, I want an Aunt Lola. I had a Great Grandma Lula and G.G. Lemuel…Lem and Lula.

  • Susie

    Lem and Lula sound like characters from the Andy Griffith show. The episode where Lula’s twin sister Lola visits on Easter without her underdrawers.

  • southern fried girl

    Thank God someone’s family sounds as fucked up as mine is.


    No undies? That’s Lola’s worst nightmare?

    I’m a little disappointed, I would have suspected more from her.

  • Susie

    GEORGE!!!! That’s just the beginning of the nightmare. Some things, Aunt Lola just doesn’t speak of on Easter Sunday.

    Like the part where she say, “How’d you like to get your ass kicked by an Auntie with no panty?”

  • greenthumb

    Susie…I grew up in a Mayberry-esk town. Population 1900…G.Grampa Lem was a moonshiner.

  • coskel

    only on dooce could this board go from Sister in Zion to the asparugus recipie to prison bitch names and going commando in under 200 comments.

    Happy Monday all!! Slap-happiness will ensue. mrtl, thanks for the You know, I didnt’ have QUITE enough time-killers what with losing my mind and starting a blog of my very own this weekend.

    And I thought the rule was that we all have to have an Aunt Shirley somewhere.

  • Susie

    greenie, I have an old photograph of a still; that’s not a still photo, you know’m sayin’? It belonged to my grandfather or my great-g. Hell, you really are my brother.

  • mrtl

    I met someone here in Texas within the last couple years who makes her own peach hooch. That shit was Nasty.

  • greenthumb

    kew kew..who scuffed Flash?

  • RyanH

    I think that’s a rather nice photo. The cast looks glum, but at the same time incredibly confident. I apologize for not having anything witty to add to these comments.

  • mrtl

    You’re most welcome, coskel.

  • Wicked H

    So I am guessing this is the look of Lola while going commando.

    Got it!

  • bored

    not related to the photo – but is definitely entertaining… AND about boobs!

  • stillheidi

    really though…that is sooo funny!

  • al

    that cheekbone is a little too prominent; she looks like the has some kind of malignant tumor blossoming beneath her granite skin

  • mihow

    Underpants are overrated.

  • laurenbove

    Hey Susie: Is it me or does asparagus make your pee smell funny?

    I did the same recipe yesterday and now I’ve noticed this phenomenon.

  • Suzy

    My mom had that haircut in the 80s. Now I know her inspiration.

  • Ev

    I have to thank you for your Aunt Lola story. It had me laughing so hard I was crying at my desk. My coworkers must think I’m crazy. And the photo is lovely.

  • Kim

    Aunt Lola just about made me pee in my panties. YES, I have mine on today. I have forgotten to brush my teeth but forget my underwear. That is obviously one busy woman!! Thanks for sharing that one dooce!!!

  • Susie

    hi, laurenbove. Those appetizers did not make my pee smell funny. However, my making them, using greenie’s recipe, DID make HIS pee smell funny. I’m scratchin’ my head…

  • Amanda

    haha… great story! :) thanks for always making me laugh

  • Kassi

    Thank goodness I do a panty check every morning.

  • Dan

    Less architecture, more Chuck. Thanks.

  • smacks

    another earthquake in indonesia

  • mrtl

    smacks – thanks – damn commercial on cnn. isn’t it weird that the last one was the day after Christmas?

  • smacks

    i never thought of that! now it’s the day after easter.

  • Jeff Milner

    I absolutely loved comment #36.

    “interesting [...] considering that [...] the sculptor was a Mormon, creating art to support that belief, and Heather is a recovering Mormon, and taking a photo to explore her past and how it has affected her present. A study of a Mormon artist by a former Mormon artist.”

    “the dialouge between the sculptor and the photographer is what makes the photo so interesting.”

    I didn’t think much about the photo at first because being a mormon (recovering) myself I’ve seen the statue so often in trips to Utah that it’s artistic value is almost lost on me. Looking at it from that new perspective really opens things up.

  • the niffer

    I must admit that I have forgotten my panties before. And even more often a bra; my little guys don’t need much support. Just a friendly “GOOOOO BOOBIES” every morning.
