Grinches need not apply

Garrison Keillor grouses about holiday grumps. The man is a national treasure.

Happened across this and thought, my gosh, save for the wardrobe, this looks a lot like me. Had the lovely wife check it out, and she too says this has an uncanny resemblance to moi.


(It's a statue of Oscar Wilde in Dublin.)
In case you hadn't heard this one....

Bono, at a U2 concert in Ireland, asked the audience for some quiet. Then in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands.

Holding the audience in total silence, he said into the microphone, "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies."

A voice from near the front of the audience pierced the silence, "Well fookin' stop doin' it, then!"

(Not a true story, it appears, but funny nonetheless.)
Best Bush Bash, Ever


TriPod11: bush ain't THAT bad...he kinda knows what he's doin
idaredbeet08: Please, Monica Lewenski had more President in her than George Bush ever will.

And just for the hell of it ('cause it's kinda related):


Delanushorse: Dude, I was eating a chocolate bar in my kitchen the other day, when my mom walks in
Delanushorse: I was like "it's like an orgasm in my mouth" and my mom says "oh, believe me, you DON'T want to know what that tastes like".
Delanushorse: I guess she realized what she said, because she walked out really quickly.

I've been at a conference the last week and have returned with a cold. I'll have a post on my travels soon, when I feel like sitting at a keyboard.

In the meantime, I couldn't sleep last night due to said dread disease, and discovered that VH1 sneaks videos on when they aren't trotting out C-level celebs on silly "reality" shows.

This one really amused me. One of the best videos I've seen. And the song's not bad.

It even looks like it was done in one take, which is amazing.

Oh, and btw, the group is called "OK Go" and the song is "Here It Goes Again."

I've got some ocean-front property in Ethiopia, if you're interested ....

It looks like a new ocean might be in the making.

Stuff like this has been needed to be said for years now. It's about freakin' time.
