- Tom Reilly says he’ll campaign without a running mate.
Well, if all else fails, Tom, that’s a pretty good idea. Oh yeah — all
else did fail…
- Ya know, I like some of the Black Eyed Peas’ stuff… but is “My
Humps” truly the single stupidest song ever written? It makes “Louie
Louie” sound like “Art of the Fugue.”
- Local TV take notice: “Breaking News” should be, like,
“Breaking”. And relevant to people’s actual lives or safety. Sam Alito
getting confirmed is not “breaking news”, nor is some car chase in
Denver or LA.
- Have you seen that cereal called “Optimum Zen”? Or seen the
yogurt ad where a woman gushes, “It’s like karma and zen all mixed
together!” Are Asians so careless with Western religious terms in their
branding? Do they nibble on “Talmud Puffs”, or snack on
“Transubstantiation Crunch”? Just asking.
- Flipped past “The Biggest Loser” on TV tonight. Of course, NBC
has their ubiquitous ghost-image of the peacock and the Olympic rings,
so I thought for a minute this was an Olympic sport. Dude, we’d totally
crush the world in that — who could possibly lose as much weight as
Americans? USA! USA! USA!
reports that the <a
administration says he didn’t literally mean all those cool
things about oil independence in 20 years. Seems like just last
night when I said, “Wouldn’t it be great if you
believe a damn word this guy says?”
But perhaps I’m just being snide. Maybe he meant it poetically:
Breakthroughs on this and
other new technologies
will help us reach an-
other great goal: to
replace more than seventy
oil imports from the
Middle East by Twenty Twen-
Ty Five (a-boom-boom).
Those are the worst #@%@ haikus ever. Hmm… maybe iambic pentameter?<span
Breakthroughs on this and other
will help us reach another great
goal: to replace more than seven-
of our oil imports from
the Middle East by 2025.
Still lame. But it lines up better. I’m willing to entertain that he
meant the lines allegorically — or maybe they’re a special
super-secret code! Neato!
