An oldie but a goodie from the only reliable source of news on the net, the Onion. Life without the Internet. What would we do? We might have to “gasp” talk to one another! Bloggers would have to post their missives on their doors for passers-by to write comments! What would we do with the several hours freed up each day from not browsing the internet? The Horror, the Horror!
In honor of America landing a man on the Moon forty years ago, the indispensable Iowahawk has a column here in which he suggests sending Congress to the Moon. I’d like to be among the first to climb on board this rocketwagon. I suspect we will never get our budgetary house in order until Congress is sent to the Moon, and I believe that most Americans have long thought that Congress and a full Moon go together. However, as the above picture indicates, I can think of a few officials from the Executive Branch who should go along for the ride!
Hattip to Rock, Paper Shotgun. Although strategy computer games have always been my first love, in my younger days I would have been a prime candidate for this malady. One of my son’s first words was Doom when he saw the game box in a hobby shop. I don’t waste my time with that type of nonsense anymore. Hmmm, I wonder if there is a blogger disease?
Near tragedy in DC yesterday when a screen of Totus (Teleprompter of the United States), crashed. Rumors abounded yesterday that Totus was no more. Had this, dare I say it, been an assassination attempt against Totus? Was Vice-President Biden involved? There is no love lost between Biden and Totus, but certainly Biden would not stoop to electronicide, would he?
Fortunately Totus announced here on its blog that it is OK. Totus blames Felix its operator. Hmmm, I wonder if there are recent sightings of Biden and Felix together? Stay alert Totus, the screwdrivers, if not the knives, may be out against you!
From the only reliable source of news on the net, the Onion. One of the difficulties of being a parodist in rather absurd times is that reality tends not to be that far removed from parody. Such is the case with this video which might be easily mistaken for a “news” show where pundits are doing their best, or worst, to adjust to new technology.
Here’s something light for your Friday. We all knew what sort of guy French president Nicholas Sarkozy is, but few realized that our own president has similar aesthetic sensibilities.
Some are loudly mocking Obama for this. I’d say give the guy a break.
The king is but a man, as I am: the violet smells to him as it doth to me: the element shows to him as it doth to me; all his senses have but human conditions:
Presidents are a lower species than kings, but the principle applies. And we must recall that the wisdom of the American people has given us a president who hasn’t yet had years of practice in checking out passing babes without allowing it to be obvious to the camera. Give it some time and when his senses kick in with human conditions as the element shows to him, he’ll gaze upon it with the same cool aplomb as Sarkozy.
As California continues on a course that may well end in bankruptcy, the indispensable Iowahawk decides to give us a sneak peek of the future California funeral here. Any relation between California’s funeral and the funeral of a pop singer this week is purely intentional. After all, they both died broke!
From the only reliable source of news on the net, The Onion. The sad and sorry fact is that as policy the above, as ridiculous as it is, makes more sense to me than most of the economic policies that have been implemented since September 1, 2008.
Obama kills a fly and the media goes beserk! The indispensable Iowahawk reports here on a suit being brought by the widow of the fly, and P.E.T.A., always eager for a little easy and free publicity, of course chimed in. Maureen Dowd came up with a column on the Obama fly-icide, and I am milking a post out it!
The LA Times, desperately applying as much lipstick as possible on a pig of an economy, wrote an article here about the up side of unemployment under Obama. The sombre and always serious Iowahawk gives this article the drubbing it screams out for here.
Maureen Dowd wrote a column last month in which she compared, tongue in cheek, Obama to Mr. Spock from Star Trek. Jeff Greenwald of Salon also sees a resemblance between Chicago’s “gift” to the country and the first officer of the Enterprise. Bill Whittle of Pajamas Media, takes great joy in informing us in a very entertaining video here why having an intellectual in the mode of Mr. Spock as president is very bad for the nation.
From the only reliable source of news on the net, the Onion. I hate to admit it, but some of the pizzas in the video actually looked pretty good to me. As Emile said in Ratatouille, “You know, if you can sort of muscle your way past the gag reflex, all kinds of food possibilities open up.”.
