Two years into Obama’s first term in office, unemployment is higher, the national debt is higher and there are more soldiers serving in Afghanistan. When asked about it, Obama was like, ‘Well, technically that is change


In Japan, they have developed a new green machine that turns regular paper into toilet paper. Kind of like what Obama did with the dollar


The Postal Service announced plans to close an additional 2,000 branches after losing $8.5 billion. Maybe in retrospect, making people wait in line while you slowly finish your bag of fiery hot Cheetos isn't such a good idea."


There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.

I had a friend who was a clown. When he died, all his friends went to the funeral in one car.


I wonder how many people a year get lost in a Ford Explorer or trapped within a Ford Escape.  I have plenty of time to think about things like that since this is the third day I've been buried under this snow bank in my Chevy Avalanche.


It was different when we were kids. In second grade, a teacher came in and gave us all a lecture about not smoking, and then they sent us over to arts and crafts to make ashtrays for Mother's Day


I used to be a heavy gambler, but now I just make mental bets. That's how I lost my mind.

After all, roam wasn't billed in a day.

Happy Harry’s Hundred Hoaxes…………………


#27: Diseases of Brunus Edwardii.  1972: The Veterinary Record, the weekly journal of the British veterinary profession, contained an article about the diseases of Brunus edwardii, which was described as a species "commonly kept in homes in the United Kingdom and other countries in Europe and North America." The article warned: Pet ownership surveys have shown that 63.8 percent of households are inhabited by one or more of these animals, and there is a statistically significant relationship between their population and the number of children in a household. The public health implications of this fact are obvious, and it is imperative that more be known about their diseases, particularly zoonoses or other conditions which might be associated with their close contact with man.  For months afterwards the correspondence section of the Veterinary Record was dominated by letters about Brunus edwardii, most of which offered new observations about the species. The article proved so popular that it was eventually published in a special edition by Whittington Press, although it was reported that the British Library later had difficulty deciding how to classify it, as fact or fiction. Brunus edwardii is more commonly known as the "Teddy Bear".

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

That’s it for this week from your embedded community activist, lurking on the outskirts of the DC cesspool, near Absurdia, the principle city of the Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan.   This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address occurred on the same day. "It is an ironic juxtaposition of events; one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication while the other involves a groundhog."

But, on the other hand…………….


We are not human beings on a spiritual journey, we are spiritual beings on a human journey
