The "Uh" Count


Your Lying Cell Phone!

I always knew there was sumthin' fishy about all these ads bragging about the number of bars. Read "Your laptop is lying to you"


Animal Abuse Can Be Fun!

For instance, you could dress your dog like "Slave" Princess Leia!

Obama Favors Bush Model of Presidency

(Well, he does when caught accidentally on mic.)

"That's exactly right," Obama said. "And the truth is that we've got a bunch of smart people, I think, who know ten times more than we do about the specifics of the topics. And so if what you're trying to do is micromanage and solve everything then you end up being a dilettante but you have to have enough knowledge to make good judgments about the choices that are presented to you."



Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Trailer for next year's Watchmen movie! Looks like it could be good ... but .... the Owl looks way too "badass". He should be middle-aged and flabby... I'm wondering how true it will be to some of the themes of the comic.

We shall see...


The Catholic Sun (by Hilaire Belloc)

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There's always laughter and good red wine.
At least I've always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!

It was a great time; congrats to Miss Tracy, who's enjoying herself at CM Seattle this weekend!

Evil Twin Alert!

Not since Dylan went electric have the liberal progressives felt so alienated and hurt by a pop culture icon's sudden change from a familiar folksy sound to the sort of contrived distortion that one often hears closer to the center.

But it turns out that Obama's sudden rightward shift has an easy and rational explanation: he has an evil twin who often poses as Good Obama and spouts disturbingly non-progressive views. The absolute resemblance of the Obama twins makes it almost impossible to distinguish between the two, although it has been reported that Evil Obama wears a goatee.

See The People's Cube for the rest of the story!

A good reason to vote against Obama

According to the NY Times, it's not allowed to laugh at Obama. There exist no funny Obama jokes. The greatest, funniest minds either can't or won't generate them.

It would be a Very Bad Thing to have a President that can't be poked fun at. One of the classic things to say about the US is "we can make fun of anyone... even the President". Sorry, but that is just too valuable to give up.
