Photo of the year

posted at 3:34 pm on September 12, 2007 by Allahpundit

That’s the Hammer on the left — but who’s that mystery dude on the right? Did she finally land the long-awaited Allahpundit interview?

No, my friends. Much, much better. A sneak preview of this week’s HamNation, for your eyes only. Click to reveal.

I’m impressed that she managed to keep her composure in the presence of greatness.

Update: Sigh. You always have to explain to some people.

Ok, call me stupid but I have no idea who that is.

bopbottle on September 12, 2007 at 3:35 PM

MKH, if you got to hug John Smeaton, please write in and tell us all about it!

RushBaby on September 12, 2007 at 3:36 PM

Call bopbottle stupid because I have no idea either.

Darksean on September 12, 2007 at 3:36 PM

He looks like some weird stalker geek. Hammer seems to want to run away from him.

Who is he? We should find him and beat him up for sullying our little Honey Baked Ham!!

;-)

Mazztek on September 12, 2007 at 3:37 PM

From that photo Mr Smeaton is a wee bit smitten.

Limerick on September 12, 2007 at 3:37 PM

Only Scotland’s greatest hero, he is.

Wineaholic on September 12, 2007 at 3:37 PM

Isn’t that Scottish flaming terrorist tackling guy?

I too was hoping it was Allah. Maybe you could wear one of those eyeball masks like the Residents, AP.

saint kansas on September 12, 2007 at 3:38 PM

The real question is, could she understand him when he spoke… English? I can’t wait to hear.

BNCurtis on September 12, 2007 at 3:38 PM

YES! Great snag!

Weight of Glory on September 12, 2007 at 3:41 PM

Really looking forward to watching it!

Weight of Glory on September 12, 2007 at 3:41 PM

Heh – he’s wearing the jacket.

Editor on September 12, 2007 at 3:49 PM

eh, maybe not.

Editor on September 12, 2007 at 3:50 PM

Does anyone see a possible love connection in that shot?

Dr.Cwac.Cwac on September 12, 2007 at 3:50 PM

Awesome! I’m surprised she got to talk to him!

Bad Candy on September 12, 2007 at 3:51 PM

Ham, watch out, he’ll set about ye!

So would I for that matter.

The luggage handler who beat the bloody hell out of one of the terrorists at Glasgow, when they were trying to fight the cops.

amerpundit on September 12, 2007 at 3:53 PM

The luggage handler The Luggage Handler…..has a nice ring to it.

Limerick on September 12, 2007 at 3:55 PM

Rock on, MKH!

Spirit of 1776 on September 12, 2007 at 3:58 PM

Now that I know what it takes to meet MKH, I’ll be tackling every flaming terrorist I see.

saint kansas on September 12, 2007 at 3:59 PM

That interview better have subtitles.

mojowire on September 12, 2007 at 4:04 PM

Man, I can’t decide who’s the luckier!

benjamin on September 12, 2007 at 4:10 PM

Sigh. You always have to explain to some people.

Well, some of us recognize eye candy right away.
And I won’t give that a wider stance…., k.

Kini on September 12, 2007 at 4:21 PM

If anybody gives a toss, The Smeats was on Geraldo’s show over the weekend.

SMEATS! SMEATS! SMEATS!

Buy this man as many pints as he wants, I say.

kevcad on September 12, 2007 at 4:23 PM

I’ll be tackling every flaming terrorist I see.

That can be taken in soooo many ways. ;)

lorien1973 on September 12, 2007 at 4:24 PM

Who is that Bozo, and what’s so great about him???!!!

Confederate on September 12, 2007 at 4:24 PM

Aye, but who isn’t?

CT on September 12, 2007 at 4:34 PM

Confederate on September 12, 2007 at 4:24 PM

“Bozo” helped to foil a terrorist attack in his home city of Glasgow.

baldilocks on September 12, 2007 at 4:36 PM

That’s one damn lucky guy… getting to be interviewed by the lovely Ms. Hammer!

CrazyFool on September 12, 2007 at 5:00 PM

Way better than a robot.

nailinmyeye on September 12, 2007 at 5:00 PM

I was kinda hoping it was Ron Paul.

windbag on September 12, 2007 at 5:02 PM

Limerick on September 12, 2007 at 3:37 PM

Yeh, say smitten smeaton 5 times.

captivated_dem on September 12, 2007 at 5:05 PM

Lucky girl. Scottish lads are quite the catch. Just don’t lift the kilt.

Stormy70 on September 12, 2007 at 5:17 PM

Smeato conquers America!
I, for one, welcome our new Scottish overlords, even if I can’t understand a word they say.

If it ain’t Scots, it’s crap!!

TBinSTL on September 12, 2007 at 5:17 PM

Hoot Mon!

Kini on September 12, 2007 at 5:23 PM

Stormy70 on September 12, 2007 at 5:17 PM

Being of Scottish decent myself I can assure you that at the appropriate moment the Scottish kilt lifts itself……

doriangrey on September 12, 2007 at 5:25 PM

Mary Katherine…you lucky B*tch!!

Being of Scottish decent myself I can assure you that at the appropriate moment the Scottish kilt lifts itself……

doriangrey on September 12, 2007 at 5:25 PM

That reminds me of something a Brit friend of mine once said in reference to a threat to show him my corset…

“I see your corset, and I raise you my kilt.”

tickleddragon on September 12, 2007 at 5:47 PM

Does anyone see a possible love connection in that shot?

Dr.Cwac.Cwac on September 12, 2007 at 3:50 PM

Forget the interview, I wanna know what happened after.

MirCat on September 12, 2007 at 5:47 PM

Have I said before that I absolutely adore UK men??

tickleddragon on September 12, 2007 at 5:47 PM

TexasDan on September 12, 2007 at 5:48 PM

And one could tell by how we walked that he drunk more than his share
He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
Then he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street

Keli on September 12, 2007 at 5:54 PM

Limerick on September 12, 2007 at 3:37 PM

Can you blame him?

Yakko77 on September 12, 2007 at 6:04 PM

Among people I haven’t met, these are two of my faves.

mikeyboss on September 12, 2007 at 6:36 PM

is this one of those cardboard cutout you can stick your head thru?

madmonkphotog on September 12, 2007 at 7:28 PM

Smeatonmania! Hammania!

Its like a wonderful technicolor dreamcoat or something!

BKennedy on September 12, 2007 at 7:58 PM

Not shown–Smeaton offering MKH a pot of haggis.

radjah shelduck on September 12, 2007 at 7:59 PM

Ha. So much awesomeness in one picture.

Tanya on September 12, 2007 at 7:59 PM

YES!!

I’m impressed that she managed to keep her composure in the presence of greatness.

Look at the smile – if that’s not pleasure, I don’t know what is.

Jezla on September 12, 2007 at 9:36 PM

HAha, awesome! I’ve been hoping all week that Red Eye would book him… sadly not so far

Anyway, for Smeaton fans – http://johnsmeaton.com/

RightWinged on September 12, 2007 at 9:48 PM

Allah, it really is time for you to at least get an avatar. I’m thinking Mohammed-bombhead + Max Headroom = The Future

wordwarp on September 12, 2007 at 10:25 PM

mojowire on September 12, 2007 at 4:04 PM

Miss_Anthrope on September 13, 2007 at 9:41 AM

So now we know what it takes to get to sit with MKH on a park bench! BRING ON THE TERRORISTS!!!!

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on September 13, 2007 at 9:44 AM

Mary Kathrine so freaking hot…no pun intended just a observation.

GREENTURTLE on September 13, 2007 at 10:29 AM

Did he get a date with him? Can I get a date with her?
