Street Value

Uh-oh: Last week the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that bong water is an illegal drug. Under state law, a controlled substance includes any “mixture” containing that substance, “regardless of purity.” The consequences of reading that definition literally can be severe. In the case before the court, a woman whose bong contained 37 grams of water […]

A White House spokesman, asked about the case, quipped: “I’ve found that, actually, the children of biracial couples can do pretty good.” Yeah, it’s a pretty funny […]

Nobel Committee Insults America

Yesterday the Nobel Prize Committee insulted the Great Helmsman, President Barack Obama by awarding yet another prize to an unworthy second rater while ignoring the Great Helmsman’s dramatic contributions in every field.  Our dear leader wrote the two greatest books in modern civilization. These books are an inspiration to all of us who are his […]

Quote Of The Day #2

Okay, Doug’s already done one quote about the Obama Nobel, but I just can’t resist this: There’s a line in the movie Dangerous Liaisons to the effect that one does not applaud the tenor for clearing his throat. I was reminded of it when I heard about President Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize. Just about […]

In Denmark, The Danes Recycle You

There’s the oft-repeated factoid that the Indians used every part of a buffalo when they killed it. The Danes are learning from their example: But in one area, greenery might be taken to excess. Denmark’s crematorium association has revealed its profitable sideline in recycling metal parts salvaged from the dead. Burnt bodies leave knee or […]

Exercising your rights and abilities as consumers, you are therefore […]

Quote Of The Day

From Tim Lynch, Cato@Liberty, on Obama’s entrance to Gates-gate: Even more disturbing is Obama’s leap into this matter. It is yet another indication of the Cult of the Presidency where the President sees a role for himself in just about any aspect of life. The news media covers the event as if it is pretty […]

Monday Diversion

Well, when I was awoken by my toddler at 4 AM, and kept up by him all morning, I knew I was in for trouble. 40 oz of coffee later, I’m marginally ready to think. In the thought that some readers might be as zombie-like as I am, I give you exploding watermelons: This comes […]

Don’t Apologize For Funny

Comedy is hard. Really, really hard. Funny requires stepping outside the box — saying something a bit unexpected. There are a lot of ways to screw it up, and often what sounds funny in your head is not so funny when a listener hears it. There’s a reason why many actors say that comedy acting […]
