July was the hottest month on record in Washington, D.C. But it's not the heat that gets you; it's the stupidity.


Bill Clinton endorsed New York's same-sex marriage law on Monday although he opposed same-sex marriage when he was president. Gay groups won't accuse him of inconsistency because, to be fair, Bill Clinton opposed his own marriage when he was president.


Vice-President Joe Biden called members of the Tea Party 'terrorists'. In retaliation, members of the Tea Party called the Vice-President,'A Joe Biden'!


They say we avoided economic disaster. So now we're $16 trillion in debt. That's not "economic disaster?"

#55: FatSox 2000: The British Daily Mail announced that Esporta Health Clubs had launched a new line of socks designed to help people lose weight. Dubbed "FatSox," these revolutionary socks could actually suck body fat out of sweating feet. The invention promised to "banish fat for ever." The socks employed a patented nylon polymer called FloraAstraTetrazine that had been "previously only applied in the nutrition industry." The American inventor of this polymer was Professor Frank Ellis Elgood. The socks supposedly worked in the following way: as a person's body heat rose and their blood vessels dilated, the socks drew "excess lipid from the body through the sweat." After having sweated out the fat, the wearer could then simply remove the socks and wash them, and the fat, away.

IRRITAINMENT: Entertainment and media spectacles that are annoying but you find yourself unable to stop watching them. The Anna Nichol show or the Bachelor is a prime example.


PERCUSSIVE MAINTENANCE: The fine art of whacking the heck out of an electronic device to get it to work again.


ADMINISPHERE: The rarefied organizational layers beginning just above the rank and file. Decisions that fall from the adminisphere are often profoundly inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to solve.


404: Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error message "404 Not Found" (meaning that the requested document, like the person's brain, could not be located).

That’s it for this week from Absurdia, the principle city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan.  Absurdistan is where you came for the crime and the sexually transmitted diseases but stayed for the seafood.   It's graduation day at the elementary school in Absurdia, and everybody's waiting to get their diplomas. Everybody but Johnny. At the assembly, the entire senior class stands up and shouts "Let Johnny graduate, let Johnny graduate!"  The principal agrees to give Johnny one last chance. "If I have five apples in my right hand and five in my left hand, Johnny, how many apples do I have?" he asked.  Johnny thought long and hard and then said "Ten."  Hearing the answer the entire senior class stood up and shouted "Give Johnny another chance, give Johnny another chance!"

But, on the other hand……………..


Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end.”
