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


Barack Obama's said he isn't hiring a clown for his birthday party, but Joe Biden plans to attend any way.


A man jumped the White House fence, but after a brief chase, the Secret Service was able to talk President Obama into coming back and finishing his term.


"Lunch bucket" Joe Biden, the working man's friend, charges the US Secret Service $2,200/month to rent a gate house on his property in Delaware to protect him. He claimed earnings of  $379,178 last year.


After the debt vote, Sen. Chuck Schumer said it’s time for jobs to move to the front burner. They’re only worried about our jobs when they’re about to lose their jobs.

GE CEO Jeff Immelt remains the head of President Obama's jobs commission, even as his company announced it is about to ship more jobs to China. Americans will still be okay with Immelt as long as one of those of the things he outsources is MSNBC.

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


#54: Washing the Lions at the Tower of London.   1860: Numerous people throughout London received the following invitation: "Tower of London—Admit Bearer and Friend to view annual ceremony of Washing the White Lions on Sunday, April 1, 1860.  Admittance only at White Gate. It is particularly requested that no gratuities be given to wardens or attendants."  By twelve o'clock on April 1 a large crowd had reportedly gathered outside the tower.    But of course, lions hadn't been kept in the tower for centuries, particularly not white lions.  Therefore the crowd eventually snuck away disappointed.  This prank had a very long pedigree.  It had often been perpetrated (on a smaller scale) on unsuspecting out-of-towners, and an instance of it is recorded from as far back as 1698.

That’s it for this week from Absurdia, the principle city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan.  Absurdistan has passed a law requiring all high schools to add 'Environmental Literacy' to their requirements to graduate.  Now they don't mean graduates must be versed in the complexities of climate change, air pollution and toxic waste . They must just be able to name the city their school is in.
