President Obama has just confirmed that the DC earthquake occurred on a rare and obscure fault-line, apparently known as "Bush's Fault".


Celebrity Research conducted a poll on Thursday finding that Casey Anthony is the most hated person in America. She was followed by Octomom and O. J. Simpson. To the eternal frustration of Democrats, Americans continue to be mad at people with no money.


Mexico's government reported the number of people leaving Mexico for the U. S. is down to practically zero. There are no jobs for them. President Obama will go down in history as the man who solved the illegal immigration problem without building a fence.


The White House sent Lunch Bucket Joe Biden to China. So now we owe them a trillion dollars and an apology.


President Obama had a three-state bus tour. I believe the three states are confusion, delusion, and desperation.

Newt Gingrich, who came in 8th place in the Iowa Straw Poll, said he's "not dead yet." Then he was invited on "Dancing With the Stars," and he said, "OK, now I'm dead."


Rep. Michele Bachmann proposed a new program to prepare America for the coming Rapture, called No Christian Left Behind.


President Obama was touring the country in a bus, because nothing inspires hope in the economy like the president riding in a bus.

Did you see CNN's Anderson Cooper giggling over the Gerard Depardieu plane-peeing story? He squeaked, giggled and cried. Well, that ought to end all the gay rumors.


The Borders book store chain is closing the rest of their stores. Now Doctors Without Borders really is without.


I was walking down the street wearing glasses when the prescription ran out.


My husband said he needed more space. So I locked him outside.

If someone complains that punning is the lowest form of humor, you can tell them that poetry is verse.


There was a blonde driving down the center of the road at 100 mph. A police officer pulled her over to the side of the road. When she had stopped, the officer asked, "License and Registration please." "It's okay, Officer, I have a special license that allows me to do this," she said smiling. "That's impossible!" The officer replied, "I've never heard of such a license." To which the driver reached into her purse and handed him her license. Astonished, the Officer said, "Just as I suspected. This is an ordinary license, I see nothing here that would allow you special consideration." She pointed to the bottom of the license and said, "Can you see this?? It says so right here: 'Tear Along The Dotted Line'.


Artifacts are a major portion of an American-Indian reservation's economy. Annually, thousands of tourists visit reservations and most will not leave without purchasing at least one memento of the traditional Indian culture.  One enterprising Indian was able to outsell his competitors in the sale of wooden dolls by selling them at only a fraction of the cost others had to charge. On examination of his dolls they found that where traditionally hard wood was used, this Indian would use cheap pine on which he glued thin pieces of fine mahogany, thus being able to produce the dolls at only a fraction of the cost.  While he claimed his dolls were still authentic, his competitors complained that it was only a cheap Sioux Veneer.

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


#57: Nat Tate.   1998: A lavish party was held at Jeff Koons's New York studio to honor the memory of the late, great American artist Nat Tate, that troubled abstract expressionist who destroyed 99 percent of his own work before leaping to his death from the Staten Island ferry. At the party superstar David Bowie read aloud selections from William Boyd's soon-to-be released biography of Tate, "Nat Tate: An American Artist, 1928-1960." Critics in the crowd murmured appreciative comments about Tate's work as they sipped their drinks. The only catch was that Tate had never existed. He was the satirical creation of William Boyd. Bowie, Boyd, and Boyd's publisher were the only ones in on the joke.

That’s it for this week from Absurdia, the principle city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan.  They know how to grow up 'em in Maryland, as evidenced by their 2008 Miss Outdoors winner. This is not some vapid beauty contest for bubble-headed teenagers. No, Maryland's Miss Outdoors has to display some real talents, like muskrat skinning. 

The key to successful muskrat skinning is a very sharp knife the outgoing Miss Outdoors, Dakota Abbott, said. 17-year-old Dakota, who won the Miss Outdoors title in 2008, earned $100 and a set of muskrat traps by winning the women's junior championship trophy in a muskrat-skinning contest last week-end.  The tradition of Miss Outdoors competitions and muskrat skinning began in 2003 when contestant Tiffany Brittingham donned a sharp knife, along with jewelry and makeup to show off her skinning skills. There is an image for you.  This year's competition even included a contestant who scalded a large chicken before plucking the feathers from the bird.  But once the judges' votes were tallied in this year's Miss Outdoors event, Abbigail Tyler was victorious -- thanks to her singing performance of "Red High Heels."  Emcee Buddy Foxwell had one unusual pageant request for all contestants, "All contestants are reminded to take your carcasses home with you."

But, on the other hand……………..


Yesterday is a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore to this day."  ~Sanskrit proverb
