Humor of the day

Non-political, and it may only amuse me…but hey, it’s my blog, dang it!

Q:  What do you get when you cross an insomniac, an agnostic, and a dyslexic?

A:  Someone who stays up at night questioning the existence of a dog.

Humor of the day

This was given to me by a Democrat friend of mine (yes, I have Dem friends!):

Research has led to the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every action with which it comes into contact.

A minute amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from four days to four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2-6 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

UPDATE: Tubbs-Jones dies

Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones (D-OH), best known for having delusions of “Bush stole OH” in 2004, has died of an aneurysm.  Unlike the moonbats, I do not take pleasure in the death of a political opponent.  Thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

UPDATE (08/21/2008 – 02:37 pm EST):  CNN has corrected the story.  Ms. Tubbs-Jones has not died, but is in critical condition.

Jax area church rejects $600k lottery tithe

I don’t get this.  From my own back yard:

After Robert Powell hit the Florida Lottery jackpot last month and took home more than $6 million, he thought of his church.

And he offered to drop his tithe, around $600,000, in the collection plate of First Baptist Orange Park.

But the church and Pastor David Tarkington politely declined and told Powell they will not accept the lottery winnings.

Many churches do not approve of the lottery and gambling but on the other hand Pastor Dr. Lorenzo Hall of the El-Beth-El Divine Holiness Church says $600,000 can do a lot of good.

“I’m against the lottery, but if one of my members won the lottery, I wish and I hope he would give 10% to the church, we could do a lot of things with that money,” says Hall.

First Baptist Orange Park Pastor David Tarkington would not say exactly why the church refused the money, saying only he didn’t want to talk about members’ gifts.

First of all, I am not familiar with any Biblical passage that makes a reference to “gambling”, so if any of you are aware of such a passage, please feel free to enlighten me.  I’m not an expert on all things related to Scripture, so I would not object to being more informed on the matter.

But gambling aside, we’re not exactly talking about ill-gotten gains here.  We are talking about a state-sponsored program that, in part, funds education.  We are also talking about a man who seems to have had his heart in the right place by parting with 10% of his $6 million prize (which God expects us to do).  I mean, $600k to a church is NOT small potatoes!  A lot of great work can be accomplished to glorify the Kingdom with that kind of jack.

If the church is rejecting the man’s tithe due to a hangu-up on gambling, then I think the church is overreacting.  What do you think?

Non-political post of the day

Check this crazy shiite out, from the UK:

Amanda Knox, the American student accused of involvement in the murder of her British flatmate Meredith Kercher in Perugia last November, wrote in her diary that she was only a target in the case because she is attractive.

In her diary and prison extracts, published in Corriere della Sera and written in Italian and English, she refers to her own looks, suggesting she has been singled out for world attention because she is attractive. “If I had been ugly, would they have acted in the same way? I don’t think so.”

What??  You mean being sexy is against the law?  Well, then figuratively speaking (and with no pun intended), I’m screwed!  For those of you on the left, that was a joke.

Looking at the suspect, though, I must say that someone sure has delusions of grandeur.  I mean, it’s not like you need to tie a T-bone around her neck to get the dog to play with her, or that she looks like a pug that chased a parked car and caught it.  But she’s not exactly Bo Derek in 10, either.  She’s quite a bit on the homely side, especially to be making such “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful” proclamations.

Tim Russert dead at 58

Story here.

I had a lot of respect for the guy.  Sure, he was liberally biased, but on more than one occasion, I saw him hammer a Democrat during an interview.  He actually grilled Gore pretty good in 2000 on Meet the Press, and Kerry didn’t get a free ride, either.  So while I also saw him lob softballs at lefties, he did indeed throw some hardballs at them, too.

Politics aside, the man was well respected, as well he should have been.  Thoughts and prayers go out to the Russert family and his friends.

German study: smart ladies are lousy lays

Bright ladies = bad sex, dumb broads = great sex?  Hey, don’t get mad at me, ladies…get mad at the Euros!  It’s their study, not mine!

BRAINY babes find it harder to have an orgasm – because they are too busy thinking, a study claims.

 

The German survey found that the more educated a woman was, the less likely it was that she would be satisfied by sex.

 

In the study 62 per cent of women who had completed their education said they often had problems achieving orgasm.

 

Only 38 per cent of women with a lower educational qualification said they had such problems.

 

The study conducted by a German lifestyle website surveyed over 2,000 women between the ages of 18 and 49.

The moral of the story is this: Guys, if your lady isn’t satisfied by you in the rack, it’s nothing you’re doing wrong…if she’s smart, that is.  If she’s a ditz and she’s still not satisfied, then you need to change your techniques!  😀

Yes, sir…you’ll get the hard-hitting (no pun intended) analysis of the important issues du jour here at Crush Liberalism!

Charitable donation (no, not to me!)

This is a modified re-post of something I wrote a couple of years ago, and I decided to do it again after listening to the radio at lunchtime.  Please indulge me for a moment:

As most of you know, I do not post a great deal of personal information (beyond my profile) here due to the fact that some people who come here end up not liking me. I know, I know…how can that possibly be? With my disarming manners, my gentle nature, my folksy Tennessee charm, and my Southern hospitality, it’s hard to imagine how anyone could possibly think I am a juvenile, boorish, lewd, sarcastic pinhead. But believe it or not, some people do! 😉

Anyway, this post is neither partisan nor political in nature. It is a simple request to you fine folks who grant me a moment of your precious time by stopping by here, many on a periodic basis. My request is that you please make a donation to a charity…any charity…that you feel does wonderful things that personally effect you in some way.

I received a piece of mail from the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. A family member of mine passed away a few years ago as a result of this heinous disease, and I have donated to this foundation since then. She remains in my thoughts, my memories, and my heart to this day, and I am blessed that she was allowed to touch my life for over three decades. As such, one way that I choose to honor her is by donating to MMRF to help them find a cure. When the cure is found, I will take pride in my small contribution’s role in the discovery.

Anyway, I have interpreted the receipt of the letter from MMRF as a sign to invite each of you to donate to a charity. I’m not asking you to donate to MMRF, but I am asking you to donate any amount (small, medium, or large) to a charitable organization to which you feel a connection. After all, I’ve known (and still know) people affected or afflicted by various cancers, autism, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), muscular dystrophy, AIDS, diabetes, and many other illnesses, and I would donate to find cures for all of them if I could. So all I ask of you fine folks is to pick just one charitable organization, even if not related to people (such as the Humane Society), and make a donation of any size. Believe me, they’ll take a $5 donation just as soon as they’d take a $500 one.

Donating is a personal choice and personal matter. I don’t need or want to know which one you chose, unless you want to tell the world in the comments section.  That’s completely up to you. I just thank you for your time, and your patronage here. God bless.

Non-political post of the day

Hey, who wants to retire to Scandinavia?  The line starts behind me, people!  From Denmark:

When a male resident at Kildegaarden nursing home in Denmark made an indecent sexual proposal to a member of the staff, the home’s director, Inger Marie Kristensen, told a nurse to telephone for a prostitute.“There was a considerable change in his demeanor after the escort girl had paid him a visit,  (gee…ya THINK? – Ed.)” Kristensen said in an interview. “We do this for our clients just as we offer them other services that they need as human beings.”

… Nurses arranged visits by call girls three times in the past three years.

American retirement homes: free bingo.  Danish retirement homes: hookers.  Choices, choices!

Toys R Us trying to turn little girls into sluts

For those who haven’t heard the term before, a “tramp stamp” is a tattoo that females put at the base of their back (just above their butt).  Well, in some news that will get Scott Ritter excited, his favorite pick-up place Toys R Us is trying to get in on the fad.  From Consumerist.com:

trs1.jpg

 

Got a trampy little kid that isn’t quite ready to get inked? No problem. Toys “R” Us has lower-back tattoo stickers for little miss thing.

We like how they’re right next to the Hannah Montana and Minnie Mouse stickers. 

Nothing says “I’m proud of my little girl” quite like getting her a “tramp stamp” at age 7, right?  No word on when Toys R Us will be selling the Barbie Pole Dance Kit or Dora the Explorer Presidential Intern Kneepads.

Did man off himself due to insults on blogs?

Wow.  If I thought about taking myself out due to something negative I read about me on this (or other) blogs, I’d have been dead a long time ago.  If every person in the blogosphere I insulted wound up checking themselves out of the gene pool because of something I wrote, I’d be a cyber serial killer.  Fortunately (or, for you moonbats, unfortunately), I don’t give enough of a wet fart on a dry January Monday what people outside of my circle of friends and family think about me…and I’m guessing the reverse is true, too.

This, however, is a story with a sad ending.  From the NY Post:

No one seems to know why Paul Tilley, the 40-year-old creative chief of ad agency DDB Chicago, jumped to his death from the window of the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago on Friday.

But that hasn’t stopped a barrage of finger pointing on several advertising blogs at the center of a controversy about what role, if any, they played in Tilley’s suicide.

Most of the anger appears to be directed at two sites – Agency Spy and Adscam – that subjected Tilley to scrutiny leading up to his death. Both bloggers defended their coverage yesterday.

“I see in the comments of this post that many will point fingers at this blog for Mr. Tilley’s death. That is unacceptable,” Agency Spy wrote in a posting.

The defense was in response to readers who blamed the public scrutiny and “snarky” comments for driving Tilley over the edge or – at least – contributing to the pressure-cooker atmosphere in the ad industry.   (Death by “snark”? – Ed.)

One commentator wrote on AgencySpy: “Trust me… as someone who’s known Paul for over 20 years… he heard and felt all those comments and whispers.”

The controversy reached the upper echelons of the ad agency world, when Nina DiSesa, the chairman of McCann Erickson New York, jumped in to complain about the blogs.

“These hateful advertising blogs seem to be written by people who are bitter about the business,” DiSesa wrote on AgenCySpy.

Although AgencySpy doesn’t disclose its blogger, George Parker, a veteran ad executive, writes AdScam.

“I suggest anyone who still feels pissed off at me and Agency Spy should contact DDB Chicago,” Parker wrote on his blog yesterday. “They know why he committed suicide. And it didn’t have anything to do with what he read on a blog.”

Both blogs drew on internal memos Tilley had sent around the agency to critique his management style, with one calling him “demoralizing” and suggesting he take lessons in motivational speaking.

Tilley, who is survived by his wife and two children, fell from the Fairmont Hotel next door to DDB. Colleagues said he gave no signs of being depressed, although he took a couple of personal days on Thursday and Friday.

Rick Carpenter, the CEO of DDB Chicago, said Tilley’s job was secure and he seemed happy after a big client presentation went well on Wednesday.

I’m not just saying this because I run a blog, but this has to be said: I cannot and will not assume responsibility for someone else’s mental instability.

A friend of mine in the early 1990’s was dating a girl who wanted to get married (despite the fact that they had only been dating for a couple of months!).  He rejected the idea, then decided to stop dating her.  She got a little “Fatal Attraction” on him, driving by his work (he worked the graveyard shift, but she didn’t), calling his house (and hanging up…this was before caller ID) in the middle of the night when he wasn’t working, etc.  She finally got a hold of him and threatened to kill herself if he didn’t take her back.  He was upset at first, but then he finally realized that her being a nutbar was not his fault.  He told her that while he didn’t want her to do it, he couldn’t stop her and her death would be in vain, since he had moved on from her anyway.  She didn’t do it, just to “spite” him.

A different friend of mine left her addict husband, who drove down to the parking lot of the church where they got married, and he blew his brains out.  She suffered intense guilt and depression from that, but eventually, she recovered and remarried and is now happy with life.  He, however, is still dead.

The point is this: disturbed people cannnot hold anyone “emotionally hostage” by killing themselves in the hopes of inflicting guilt-ridden anguish on others.  Yes, it sometimes does work, but only temporarily.  Ultimately, the guilt and anguish goes away…and the disturbed is still dead.  Why give anyone that kind of emotional power over you?

These blogs that were unkind to Tilley were not responsible for his death, as he clearly had issues that went way beyond the blogosphere.

Coach choking former NBA thug in financial ruin

In case I get any more Euro-queer visitors, you’ll be disappointed to know that “coach choking” isn’t what you think it is.  Anywho, from Cuffy:

Remember professional basketball player Latrell Sprewell? Sure you do:

Dec. 1, 1997 – Three days after being fined for missing a team flight and arriving late to Salt Lake City the night before a game, Latrell Sprewell let Golden State Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo know that it was best to leave him alone.

Carlesimo was warned by Sprewell not to approach him. When the coach ignored the caveat, Sprewell grabbed Carlesimo by the throat for 10-15 seconds before the other players stepped in. About 20 minutes later, Sprewell returned to throw punches at the coach. He landed a glancing blow.

After much soul-searching, Sprewell recognized his ego problem. Or not:

On Halloween 2004, Sprewell, who was in the final season of a $62-million, five-year deal he signed with the Knicks, said he was insulted by Minnesota’ s offer of a contract extension that was reportedly worth between $27 million and $30 million for three seasons. “I’ve got my family to feed,” he said.

And he hasn’t played basketball since that selfless act on behalf of his starving, landlubber family:

Former NBA star Latrell Sprewell’s home is up for foreclosure and his yacht was sold at auction to help pay off the $1.3 million he owes on the boat, according to court filings.

Sprewell, who once turned down a three-year, $21-million contract extension, saying, “I’ve got my family to feed,” has apparently fallen on tough times. Citizens Bank filed a foreclosure suit last week in Milwaukee County for the $405,000 home Sprewell bought in 1994. Court documents claimed he owed $295,138 in outstanding payments plus interest.

Sprewell, 37, hasn’t played pro basketball since turning down the $21-million extension from the Timberwolves during the 2004-05 season.

He was making $14.6 million at the time.

I really shouldn’t delight myself in the thought of anyone’s financial misfortune, but this thug got away with choking an NBA coach and showed absolutely no remorse whatsoever for his actions.  Then, he turns down a $20 million per year deal because apparently it’s impossible to put food on the table with that kind of chump change.  Problem is, the offers never came after that.  Sucks for you, Spree.

Giants win Super Bowl

Some observations from the Super Bowl:

1.  Congrats to the NY Giants, who were clearly the superior team.

2.  18-1.  Tom who?  Patriots suck.  Their luck was bound to run out.  No one will remember their 16-0 season, but everyone will remember their Big Stage Chokejob.

3.  As a Jaguars fan, I’m happy for our former coach Tom Coughlin.  Sure, I wish he’d have won us a Super Bowl, but I salute him for taking the G-Men to the top.

4.  That “talking stain” Tide commercial was hilarious!  The eTrade commercials with the stock trading baby were funny, too.  By the way, all commercials can be viewed at myspace.com/superbowlads .

5.  Did I mention the Patriots suck?  Dude, I am LOVIN’ this!

Gang members dare cops to “come get us”, so cops oblige

Today’s heartwarming, snort-evoking, non-political post of the day brought to you from the Sunshine State:

Two alleged gang members who taunted the Miami Dade Police Department in a video posted on YouTube have been arrested by U.S. agents and charged with federal firearms violations.

Rudy Villanueva and Tony Logan, alleged members of a Miami-Dade County street gang called the Bird Road Boys, were seen in the video brandishing a shotgun, assault rifle and handguns. Villanueva was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement late Tuesday evening, and Logan was arrested early Wednesday morning….

“Villanueva and Logan threatened law enforcement. They brandished weapons and told us, ‘Here I am baby. … Come get us if you want.’ Villanueva said come get me, and we did. We will not tolerate gang threats to our police officers,” U.S. attorney Alex Acosta said in a statement.

Man finds wife working at brothel

Today’s non-political post comes from Poland.  From FNC:

WARSAW —  A Polish man visiting a brothel was surprised to find his wife working there, Reuters reported.

The woman, who had told her husband she had been working at a store in town to make extra money, Reuters reported.

“I was dumfounded. I thought I was dreaming,” the husband told the Polish tabloid Super Express on Wednesday.

The couple reportedly are getting a divorce.

Exit question: We know the man asked his wife what she was doing there, but did she ask him the same question?

DUI driver is a Moron…literally!

Here’s your non-political post of the day.  From FNC:

Bryan Scott Moron, 20, of Burleson, Texas, was arrested Friday after he lost control of his truck and struck a mailbox, then a house, MyFOXDFW.com reports.

Living up to his surname, Moron failed sobriety tests, the station said. The arrest report showed his blood alcohol level to be more than twice the legal limit.

I occasionally get comments and e-mails from morons, but I’ve yet to receive a comment or e-mail from a Moron. 😀

Christmas tag

I don’t usually do this, but RV is a friend of mine (despite his misguided fondness of a certain cow pasture school in Gaysville), and since he “tagged” me, I’ll play along.  The rules state that I have to state the rules (kinda circular, huh?):

14. Favorite Christmas song?
“Hark the Herald Angels Sing”, “Mary Did You Know?”

Non-political post of the day

Check this out:

A northeastern Ohio high school senior who sent an e-mail to the Church of Satan threatening to kill his grandparents was taken out of school this week and remains in police custody, police said.

Andrew Culver, 18, told police the e-mail, detailing his intention to kill his grandparents and steal their money and car, was a joke, said Bazetta Township police Chief Charles Sayers.

According to police, Culver wrote he had access to an arsenal of weapons and wanted to “kill in the name of our unholy lord Satan.”

Culver sent the message on Wednesday to Peter Gilmore, the high priest of the New York City-based Church of Satan, Sayers said. Gilmore then alerted the FBI, which notified local police. Culver was taken out of class on Thursday and questioned by police, Sayers said.

“To send an e-mail making specific threats, to sign your name, that to me is not a joke,” Sayers said.

Gilmore said his church discards most of the hundreds of e-mails it receives a day. But Culver’s message stood out, he said.

“I thought it could be a joke, but with recent events in Colorado and Nebraska, I thought it was better to play it safe,” he said.

Culver, who lives with his grandparents north of Youngstown in Bazetta Township, had an argument with his family this week and left home for a couple days before returning Wednesday, Sayers said.

Messages seeking comment were left at the Culver’s home and with the Trumbull County Juvenile Detention Center, where Culver is being held.

Charges will be discussed at a scheduled hearing on Monday, Sayers said. 

I wonder why the head Satanist dude alerted the cops.  I mean, one would think the kid was just doing what the Satanists would approve of, right?  Geez, what kind of evil servant of the Dark Master is this Gilmore schmuck, getting the kid locked up before he could inflict pain and violence in Lucifer’s name?

Non-political: BCS title game (and other bowl games) set

For those of you who aren’t college football fans, feel free to ignore this post and move on to the next one.

Since the major division of college football can’t do the right thing and have a playoff like every other division of every other sport has, they concoct this monster called the “BCS”.  Well, you can’t spell “BCS” without “BS”, now can you?  Anywho, the BCS national championship game will be Ohio State (11-1) vs. Louisiana State (11-2).

While I do think the right two teams are in the title game, I think it’s a travesty that since we don’t have a playoff, hot teams like Georgia (10-2), Southern Cal (10-2), and Oklahoma (10-2), each of whom make compelling cases as to why they should get a shot, are left out in the cold.  Let’s not forget the lone undefeated program in college football in Hawaii (12-0), and the only other one-loss team in Kansas (11-1).  Instead, all of those other teams are bound for other BCS bowls, and the runner-up in the Big 12 conference (Missouri), who was ranked #1 just two days ago, is not even going to a BCS bowl game.

We need a playoff, period.  Whether it be a four-team, six-team, or eight-team playoff, it can and should be done.  We have a complete mess this year, and I for one am happy to see it implode like this.
