Luckily it's not his Kool Kamp for Kids.

although i dont agree with everything the nuge has to say, he is very intelligent, and these kids will probably have a really fun time. hunting is a skill that hopefully will never be lost. and as per the second link, better with a bow then with the now-crushed-in front of my car. *shakes fist*

As my children grow up, they spend more and more time hunting with their dear old dad... Rocco and I sneak up the same ridge at daybreak every September 15th, opening day of squirrel season.

There's a squirrel season?!

Most importantly, I did not push my children to hunt. I always made it available to them, even gently prodding and encouraging them to join me everytime I went afield, but never to the point of force or pressure. I shared the thrills of each and every hunt in stories and photos, and made it a point to let them know every night at the dinner table, "you should have been there! It was really cool!"

Yeah, no pressure there. Now finish your muskrat and run fetch daddy's meth pipe.

Who wants to hunt for squirrels? All they do is just running up and down eating peanuts. They are just too cute to be as hunting targets.. :P

Ted Nugent would be the perfect leader of a small tribe of rodent-gobbling troglodytes.

I can't remember this story exactly, but I'm sure I read an interview a million years ago (in Circus or Creem or something) in which Nugent says he recommends humping the liver of an animal you have just killed. Something like that. So I googled, but all I found was a Mudhoney interview in an online porn-industry magazine.
VIVA: I think bowhunting with Ted Nugent would be kinda fun.

Turner: He's way too gay for me.

Karl Annala: You have to fuck the liver. The Nuge likes to fuck the liver.

Turner: Ted Nugent is mentally ill. He's like a really dangerous man.
I was wondering exactly what he teaches kids at this camp. "First we dress the deer, and then we dress it up, and don't forget to give it a little lipstick, too..."

Liver humping is pretty whack, pracowity. I hope someone can find a direct quote of him advocating such a practice.

Also, intensities in tent cities?

Ted Nugent is the kinda guy you keep as a friend just in case we do hit an apocalypse, because your petty city human hunting skills wouldn't catch a wild Twinkie, let alone a ten point buck at fifty yards with nothing but a hand-carved bow using an obsidian knife.

These are men who have no need of civilization, and frankly, it's damn scary when they clash with it.

Humping the liver was covered by Philip Roth in Portnoy's Complaint.

Humping the laser was somewhere in a bad 90's movie.

Everything Ted does these days gives me the creeps. What kind of parent would send their kids to a 'kamp' run by an admitted serial statutory rapist? Nugent used to brag openly about the number of underage girls he had bedded during his years on the road.

The upside is, there are very few disciplinary problems at Ted's Kamp and no repeat offenders:
"I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want 'em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot 'em."

As the blades contact the animal, the razor sharp blades pierce through the hide and fur. The blades then cut as they toggle open inside the animal. The cut angle is very important for good penetration. The gladiator has an optimum angle of 125 degrees. (Any angle less than 120 degrees will result in a chopping action. The uniquely designed hollow-ground. Chisel point creates hairline cracks in bone, and then the points tapered shoulder blows bone apart.

There's a song in there somewhere.

Nuge intelligent? He had radio talk show gig here--made me long for the eloquence and balanced rhetoric of Sean Hannity.

Nugent is intelligent from the few calmer tirades I've heard. (And I grew up near Detroit listening to WRIF and WLLZ so I heard him a lot). He comes across as a Neanderthal when he turns on his persona though and as he's aged his persona has been spending more and more on time. He was more fun when he was an atheist libertarian taking the piss out of both sides of this purplish land.

Somewhere he realized that if he found Christ he'd be a prophet for the Guns and God crowd so that's what he did. He's shallow and vapid because he's figured out that it makes him money. I don't doubt his sincerity when the real Ted is talking about hunting however and at those times he can be quite eloquent.

Ted Nugent on Hunting is a different book in a completely different library than The Motor City Madman on Hunting (a library where they did figure out how to bang the rocks together but never quite mastered the quill and parchment).

Fudgie means anyone who comes to the northern part of Michigan from the southern part (meaning anyone from south of around Ludington who goes north of Ludington). At least that's how I understood it growing up in Manistee, where there was no fudge but plenty of fudgies.
posted by goatdog at 12:12 PM on May 14, 2005


Fudgie: tourists who come up to my neck of the woods and buy/eat fudge. It's not just a Mackinac thing.

Cone Licker: same people, only this time they're licking ice cream cones.

As a Wisconsin resident, I'd imagine that I could whip out a long list of deregatory terms for people from Michigan (like I can for people from Illinois), unfortunately, the only on I know is UPer and that seems to be a term of endearment (though it could be because I live in the southern part of the state).
posted by drezdn at 2:14 PM on May 14, 2005


What does UPer stand for?

Anyway. Um, I once heard the Nuge say he thought that people who didn't belive in the 10 commandments and the constitution needed to get the hell out of america.

Speaking as a guitarist, I never understood the Ted Nugent thing. He's mediocre at best as a player (slow, sloppy, hides lack of chops behind distortion) awful as a singer, and a stiff of a songwriter.

And in the interviews I've heard, he's sounded like a moron, so I don't know what this "intelligent" thing is about.

And of course we all know he's a draft dodger, right?

From the Detroit Free Press, via the Chickenhawk Database:
"He claims that 30 days before his draft board physical, he stopped all forms of personal hygiene. The last 10 days, he ingested nothing but Vienna sausages and Pepsi; and a week before his physical, he stopped using bathrooms altogether, virtually living inside pants caked with his own excrement, stained by his urine. That spectacle won Nugent a deferment, he says. ‘... but if I would have gone over there, I'd have been killed, or I'd have killed, or I'd killed all the hippies in the foxholes...I would have killed everybody.’” -- Detroit Free Press Magazine, July 15, 1990

With regard to Mr. Nugent's musical endeavours I would like it placed on record that I think "Motor City Madhouse" rocks very adequately. Other than that we are talking a veritable cornucopia of excrement.

Stranglehold, Cat Scratch Fever, and Journey to the Center of the Mind are all good. The Nuge reminds me of P.J. ORourke - both were cool in the 70's but went bad in the 80's.

When I'm flacid, it's just say Thudgie.

Fudgie means anyone who comes to the northern part of Michigan from the southern part (meaning anyone from south of around Ludington who goes north of Ludington). At least that's how I understood it growing up in Manistee, where there was no fudge but plenty of fudgies.

You guys really ought to hear how that sounds from Vietnam; it's hilarious. So universal, this impulse toward the Other. In San Francisco, all the neighborhoods have names and profiles for each other. The Marina and the Mission had some kind of SF Guardian-based gang war a couple of years back because they were so antithetical to each other. Funny shit for a town that's like four miles by seven miles on the end of a peninsula.

That shit about pissing his pants and killing hippies in US foxholes... whoa, this Mr. Nudge is not one who is going to go down quietly.

The Nuge has a thing about lumping women into a category with wild animals. He told Salon that he gets a “full predator spiritual erection” from tracking "bear, lions, coons, housecats, escaped chimps, small children, scared women, and everything else that can be chased and/or hunted.” He also has a thing about making sure the world knows whose opinion on matters of choice matters most, explaining on a Detroit radio show that, “Anybody that doesn’t think it is better to blow someone’s brains out than to be raped, deserves to be raped! If you don’t think your life is worth it then please go out there, don’t wear any underpants and get RAPED!! Cuz you deserve it…” (WRIF-FM, Detroit, Nugent as guest D.J., September 23, 1991).

See, Dean, it's not like we have to mock the guy. Just collate and reprint.
