One day late, perhaps, but I thought I would share this anyway….

I was at a friend’s house last week for a party, during which one of the guests decided he was going to, on the spot, compose “a limerick for Holy Week”. Without further comment, here is what he came up with:

We follow a crucified Jew
Who suffered, then bid us Adieu.
But he knew beforehand,
For his Dad had it planned,
That in three days he’d be good as new.

Hope Y’all had a nice holiday.

Life imitates The Onion:

Calvin Lives!

This is hysterical — a real-life tribute to perhaps the greatest comic strip of all time….

I love the one with the shovel, and the sharks are nice, too…

Got this via email:

Found these over at Treacher’s place:

They vote on the issues.

This is amazing, hysterical, and frightening. Go give a listen to this excerpt from a radio show. Even if you dislike Howard Stern, keep listening. It’s a group of man-on-the-street interviews with Barack Obama supporters… with a twist.

Listen to the clip.

In a comment to a post on this blog, I’ve received the following joke:

?What?s the difference between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama??

?One is a well turned-out, good-looking, and let?s be honest, pretty sexy piece of eye-candy.

?The other kills her own food.?

You say that as though it’s a bad thing?

Tell you what… Let?s give Palin and Obama each a rifle, some ammo, and a hunting knife, and see who makes it off the island.

[Update — Lileks did it way better (from 2004):

You have Bush. You have Saddam.

One is a meglomanical dictator with a small moustache who killed millions, gassed ethnic minorities, annexed a neighbor state and paid underlings to kill Jews.

The other is Hitler.

I know I?m an unsophisticated partisan blinded by ideology, but something about that equation just strikes me wrong.

I love that quote. :)]

Argh Argh Argh *clutches throat*

I’m not a coffee drinker, primarily because coffee seriously does not agree with my digestion. When I’m feeling dangerous I will have those tasty Frappuccinos — the ones in the bottles, not a “real” one from Starbucks. Even as diluted with milk and sugar as the coffee in those is, my gut is still a bit unhappy usually, so I still generally limit myself to half a bottle and save the rest for later.

So… when I’m dragging in the morning and need a little “pick me up”, I’ve taken to drinking those energy shot things you get at the drug store — the ones that come in the tiny bottles and cost like six bucks for two. I like the “Five Hour Energy”1 ones.

The funny thing is, every time I down one of those, I can’t help but feel like Doctor Jekyll downing one of his infamous draughts. Which in turn reminds me of a classic old Carol Burnett sketch in which she and another actor kept drinking potions, gasping, and dropping down behind the table — and then the other would stand up in their place.

Does everyone have these weird mental associations, or is it just me?

1: I was amused the last time I was in the store — right next to my “5-hour Energy” drinks was a competing SIX hour drink. Boy, those manufacturers really have the timing down to a science, don’t they?

I have a tendency to envelop myself in politics and such when bumming around the Internet. I think that involvement in such things can be important in the long term, but over time it really can drag you down — so much backbiting and spite, and the inevitable “anything to win” attitudes and resulting calumny and fraud and… *sigh*

So it’s nice when I come across something like this. It’s just an ad for a TV network, but what a breath of fresh air.

Go the Google, type “find Chuck Norris” (without the quotes) into the search bar, and click “I’m Feeling Lucky”.

That is all.
