JAKE (WATCH) WANTS YOU!

When Jake found out that I was going to be taking over for britpopbaby for a couple of weeks, he kindly came over to my house, donned an Uncle Sam outfit (complete with wig and beard) and sat still for several hours so I could hand-paint this exciting and completely original promotional poster begging you, the reader for help. What a guy! Also, damn, I should have been in advertising. Maybe I'll sell this idea to the U.S. Army when I'm done with it.

So if YOU, my fellow agents, happen to run across any news, gossip, pictures of Jake running marathons whilst naked, for the next two weeks, the place to be is prophecygirl922@aim.com. I will be humbly indebted and give you credit in the form of shouting your name across the interwebs (i.e. plastering it at the top of the story and maybe, if you're really lucky, I'll put it in bold). Also, I should warn you that while I had hoped this would be a seamless transition, we will have to undergo two major changes while I'm in charge...

1. We're moving to Central Standard Time (the finest of all U.S. time zones).

2. I'm afraid I'll have to ban the unnecessary use of excessive vowels in words such as "color" and "rumor." I've never understood the point of that extra "u."

That is all. Please be gentle to me seeing as how I'm very scared. I'll now go and try to find some real news.

Omg! I love Uncle Sam, er jake portriat!
You are off to a fine start, prophercy girl, welcome on-board captain!
I expect fine things from you!!

phoebe said...

PG, don't you worry, you will do absolutely great!!

And might I add, what a brilliant start! Dude, that poster is frickin awesome!!

The Bearded Lady said...

Let me commend you on taking on this job!
I know your fully up to this task.
(I've seen your blog, it's witty and excellent!)
Perhaps for a first suggestion would be an English to American conversion chart. (if time permits)
This could be created for those who are confused by the difference between color and colour...and bridge the salty waters of England's long lost distant cousin....LOL

Best wishes and thanks, TBL

The Bearded Lady said...

OMG I just noticed the head transplant!!! Masterfully done...I saw the new post an wanted to be the first to welcome you ...and I didn't see Jake's face at first... WOW.....LMAO! ;)

nice anonymous said...

It's that time of year when everyone's replacing someone who's gone off on vacation, and no one has any idea what he or she is doing. So you're doing better than most already with your great Uncle Sam illustration, Prophecy Girl. I'm amazed at how well Jake looks under the hat brim. (Though he's got far too much clothing on, for someone who's saying, "I Want You.") Hope you enjoy being in charge for a little while!

cina said...

PG it sure is a promising start! That Uncle Jake poster is hilarious! Don't worry, you will do just fine, and we will do our dutys as JakeWatch agents and be on the lookout for any Jake activity.

Now, if I may ask, what happened after you finished drawing...? Is Jake still safe and sound? ;-)

I haven't read the rest of your post, I was frickin' staring at that poster.
Genius!

ScoobyDoo said...

Uncle Jake looks fantastic! If he wants me, he can have me...

Good luck, prophercygirl. It's big shoes to fill, but you'll do just fine. It's a great start.

~DKBB~ said...

Oh my, PG, you are off to a roaringly great start - that pic is awesome!

I'll put on my best spy lenses and be on the look out for Jake news for sure. ;)

Prophecy Girl said...

Aw, thanks for the support, guys! Cina, I insisted that Jake spend a few days with me just to hang out as my thanks to him for being so understanding about the costume. The things I do for you guys... ;)

And ooh, TBL, a conversion chart is an EXCELLENT idea. I'll try to work that in.

Amerika Bound said...

PG, props to you for the awesome poster, very very well done my love..

as for the lack of vowels in words.. I have always pondered why the English english was overpopulated with redundant vowels..

Oh well.
As you were.

penny lane said...

prophecygirl, I can see we won't lack for laughs while Britpopbaby is roaming Italy! We'll be here cheering you on..!

Anonymous said...

Why didn't BPB say goodbye? Where did she go? This seems very sudden.

cina said...

Britpop is on a well deserved two-week holiday in Italy, and she did say goodbye in an earlier post. Just scroll down a bit.

Dearest PG: I'd like to report to you that Jakey is slumbering peacefully amidst the tangled sheets on my bed, whilst I am doing some of those stretches they say you ought to do after a vigorous work-out. But alas, it is not to be. At the moment, I'm looking at the shoes in my closet to determine how many pairs are older than Jakey....far more than I realized!!!!

Nothing Really Matters said...

Don't worry PG i was always mailing Brits with lots of crap so you can expect the same!

Smurfeyshmoo said...

Whoa, Uncle Jake is awesome! Although it surely does not feel right to be calling him Uncle. Almost creepy and dirty. Because there are things I'd like to do to him that you should not do with your uncle.

dani said...

Great poster. "Uncle Sam" has never looked this good before!

Prophecy Girl said...

At first I was going to take out the crazy Einstein hair, but then it looked too weird and there were hat issues. What's REALLY weird is how well Jake's facial proportions matched up to Uncle Sam's. They were spot on.

The Bearded Lady said...

PG , Our e-mail systems are incompatible...so I sent you some stuff via Jake msg. board.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Poster looks professional PG!...I had to do a double take to realize it was Jake!

Simon Agent 002 said...

Just think if he had some tongue action in it? LOL :)

Anonymous said...

Great picture.Did you make it?

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ It is indeed an original Prophecy Girl Photoshop production. I thank God everyday for the "artistic filter" feature. It makes things look so much more impressive than they actually are.

Simon Agent 002 said...

It would make a cool get out the vote T shirt...Jake are you paying attention?
" I want you to count!"
And this is a Democratic year thanks to the excellent stewardship job of our Republican corporate
friends!

zoo said...

Excellent start! I'll do my best to help you, of course.

Prophecy Girl said...

I actually went over to www.cafepress.com to see what it would look like on a t-shirt and I'm not going to lie. It looked damned good. We're not going to bring this up to brit, though, since she's had a hell of a time working out the shirt business and now has a good option working that will not include crazy poster-manipulation by me...but if Jake's looking for a little something for 2008... ;)

Nothing Really Matters said...

"I had to do a double take to realize it was Jake!"

So did i Simon well done PG.

Katie of Sweden said...

OT: isn't poppa's deadline today? :)

Nothing Really Matters said...

Katie the deadline bad been moved back as Brits is on holiday. So i guess it will be next month as she is away for two weeks!

Simon Agent 002 said...

Well what im saying is PG save that image... ;)

Tany said...

Great job, Prophecy Girl. That poster freakin' ROCKS!!

Katie of Sweden said...

Oki NRM, hope at least JW has it before cantara puts it up (which
is said

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ Aw, hells yes, baby! I have a feeling we're in the minority, though. We've got a lot of European love going on on this blog. :)

SquallCloud said...

Oh Prophecy Girl, as Vice Regent to the land of JakeyObsessonia, you have acquited yourself well. Gonna miss brit but if she doesn't deserves a gin soaked holiday, then no one does! Good work!

Dottieb said...

WE want the t-shirt!

gummybug said...

It's time to bring back the 'Back Away From My Man!' feature. ;-)

cina said...

^^ Yup, I agree gummy. That is a clear case of "Back away from my man" or OUR man, rather. The agent in me is alarmed by these new pictures... what do these women want? What is their plan? Do they have a big black van nearby in which they are planning to drive off with Jake in the back, gagged and blindfolded? I'm worried. Deeply worried.

JoyceDavenport said...

[b] Best Beds and Mattresses for Back Pain [/b]

Beds and mattresses play a very important role in the keeping your back in good shape. After a day full of twists and turns, and bending and straightening, your back requires good rest. Beds and mattresses that do not support the back properly can add to the back strain, besides, affecting the quality of sleep.

You can find a large variety of beds and mattresses on the market. Selecting the right kind is a matter of choice, but for patients of back pain, it is necessary that they follow the guidelines given below.

Selecting the Best Beds and Mattresses

It is important for people suffering from back pain to opt for beds and mattresses that support their back and not put it under additional stress or strain. Not much research has been done on the type of beds and mattresses required for patients with back pain. However, it is seen that adjustable beds suit people with back pain better. The angle of inclination can be adjusted to a position where the patient feels most comfortable. Patients suffering from degenerative spondylolisthesis do benefit from an inclined bed with support under the knees. They can tuck in enough pillows or cushions under the knees and adjust the angle of inclination to provide comfort to the painful back. The mattress should be neither too hard nor soft. A firm mattress will provide the support needed for a bad back.

Patients with an osteoarthritic spine stand to benefit from adjustable beds and mattress that are supportive. It is important for such patients to wake up with a relaxed back, since people suffering from osteoarthritic spine normally get up from bed with a very stiff spine.

Normal beds and mattresses for patients with spinal stenosis tend to deteriorate their condition further. Such people are more comfortable bending forward than keeping their back upright. As such, flat beds and mattresses are not suitable for their condition. An adjustable bed can be inclined at an angle that stimulates a forward bending position. A firm mattress will support the spinal stenosis back well.
