Pushing back the frontiers of the National Socialist Workers Party………………


Borders bookstores announced that it will liquidate its stock and close all of its stores nationwide. I don’t think this is what the Republicans meant by “closing our borders.”


It’s been so hot this week, everyone is sweating like Rupert Murdoch trying to explain his phone bill.


Anyone with an Obama 2012 Bumper Sticker is a Threat to the Gene Pool


It was so hot in Washington that Congress had to install a fan on the debt ceiling.


President Obama said he turns 50 this week, but he actually doesn’t turn 50 until Aug. 4. This means that even he hasn’t seen his birth certificate.


President Obama told CBS that government checks may not be sent out in August if the GOP doesn't yield. The president's threat to withhold government checks is a never-before-tried maneuver in politics called firing everybody who supports you.

Merry Mary’s Mirthful Merriment…………………….


I read that one should put a cup of liquid in the cavity of a turkey when roasting it. The turkey tasted great, but the plastic cup melted.


It's better to love a short girl than not a tall.


"I am filled with humidity"


A new study found that the average child is more likely to own a cell phone than a book. I guess that would explain why he's average.


What can you say about a society that says that God is dead and Elvis is alive?"

Hungry Harry’s Hundred Best Hoaxes……………………………


#52: Smellovision.   In 1965 BBC TV featured an interview with a professor who had just invented a device called "smellovision." This miraculous technology allowed viewers to experience directly in their own home aromas produced in the television studio. The professor offered a demonstration by cutting some onions and brewing coffee. A number of viewers called in to confirm that they distinctly experienced these scents as if they were there in the studio with him. Since no aromas were being transmitted, whatever these viewers thought they smelled coming out of their TV sets must be chalked up to the power of suggestion.

If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?


Why do mothers always say that their child cannot play until their room is clean? What will the room look like after the child plays?

Dirty David’s Goes To Washington………………..


Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.


Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

That’s it for this week from Absurdia, the principle city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan.  Otis Rolley, running for mayor of Absurdia is proposing a $1.00 bullet tax to cut down on crime!   So if you get shot on your visit to the Inner Harbor just be relieved that at the cost of bullets, you may only be shot one time.  Just so typical of the mindset of the pols that represent us in BOTH parties.
