Isn’t Stephen Colbert Great?!

This hits BP right where we live.

Winners of this years Webby Awards were asked to make “5 Word Speeches.”

The one that really stood out for me was Robert Scheer’s (Scheer represented, a site I visit frequently just to keep up with the world):

Hope you liked it (or are you from Wall St.?).

Great Morning Laugh from the Upright Citizens Brigade… BP Spills The Coffee

Funny, of course, because it is so close to the truth.

I just had a laugh watching Dylan Ratigan

I know… I watch Dylan to hear him argue with guests he disagrees with. It’s often the most entertaining thing on Television.

Today however he steered me to my search engine when he brought up a company in Minnesota that sells a “long tail” T-shirt to combat “Plumber’s Butt” (of course he showed some backside shots of plumbers exposed!)… and came up with the Duluth Trading Company.

Their best deal is a long tail shirt in a “Crack Spackle Bucket”, tu wit:

Crack Spackle Bucket contains one Longtail T

An ideal gag gift, the “Crack Spackle” bucket contains our Short-sleeve Longtail T® which has gained worldwide attention as the solution to Plumber’s Butt. The 5.9-oz. 100% cotton T-shirt is 3″ longer than most, keeping everything completely covered, even when bending over. Complete instructions on how to use the Longtail T® included. “Love the Crack Spackle. Funniest damn thing!” wrote one delighted Duluth customer. A sure hit for any holiday or birthday.

So if your plumber has a birthday coming up, here’s a neat gift.

OK… A Quote I Couldn’t Resist

(picked up at All Hat, No Cattle)

“James Cameron, who directed ‘Avatar,’ is in a feud with Glenn Beck, because Cameron called him a mad man. The two are very different. One makes millions creating fictional stories, and the other is James Cameron.”

Some Wednesday Afternoon Humor

David Letterman  has been having a ball making fun of the Jay Leno/ NBC business… Like this clip from last night:

… and one quote for the evening.

Store launches underpants for left-handed men…

And who says there are no more new inventions?
clipped from
A British store is launching a range of underpants for left-handed men, an innovation it says will save them both time and embarrassment in front of the porcelain.

The new range, by UK-based Hom, will have a horizontal opening instead of a vertical slit accessed from the right-hand side, breaking a tradition that has lasted for 75 years.

“In our view, this is a vital step toward equality for left-handed men,” said Rob Faucherand of Debenhams store.
Almost 10 percent of British men are believed to be left handed but men’s Y-fronted underpants have traditionally had a right-handed opening from the time they were invented in 1935.
The new pants mean that left handed men can finally go to the bathroom as quickly and efficiently as their right-handed colleagues, the store said.
“Switching the opening from vertical to horizontal may sound like a small step, but it’s the major breakthrough that many have been waiting for,” added Faucherand.

If you haven’t read this yet…

… you’ve missed something that’s all over the Web:


this morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US department of energy. I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the national weather service of the national oceanographic and atmospheric administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the national aeronautics and space administration. I watched this while eating my breakfast of US department of agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the food and drug administration.

At the appropriate time as regulated by the US congress and kept accurate by the national institute of standards and technology and the US naval observatory, I get into my national highway traffic safety administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads build by the local, state, and federal departments of transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the environmental protection agency, using legal tender issed by the federal reserve bank. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the US postal service and drop the kids off at the public school.

After spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the department of labor and the occupational safety and health administration, enjoying another two meals which again do not kill me because of the USDA, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to ny house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and fire marshal’s inspection, and which has not been plundered of all it’s valuables thanks to the local police department.

I then log on to the internet which was developed by the defense advanced research projects administration and post on and fox news forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can’t do anything right.
