Dog Mayor!

Rabbit Hash, KY knows how to run an election.  Meet their mayor, Lucy Lou.

Personally, I think the cat candidate was robbed.  Travis was 2nd runner up- from his bio:

Travis chose Rabbit Hash and you should choose this cat to be the new Mayor of Rabbit Hash. He is the ONLY candidate that actually resides in Rabbit Hash.”  Sad.  More information on this historic election here.

Female Urinals: what gives?

In my unnamed office building, 30 out of the 120 bathrooms contain something called “female urinals.” They look like this. I have no idea how to use them. Luckily a high-level governmental official has been made aware of the problem.

vote for the White House Farmer



Let me recommend one of the 2 Indiana farmers in the race. As a Hoosier, I can tell you that Indiana folk know how to farm. Crop rotation is the first thing we learn in grade school. No joke. Soy beans, corn, soy beans, corn, etc. But seriously, vote for Terry Himelick of Victory Acres. nuff said.

How to Stump Anti-Abortionists With One Question

LOVE this dress and yay for Jason Wu

It’s a Cinderella story.  In the Advocate, Wu says dressing Michelle was a “long shot.”  Aw he is so young and great and Michelle looked BEAUTIFUL.  Also in just one day, Michelle Obama wore stuff made by a Cuban-American woman and a 26 year old gay Asian dude.  Minorities, CHECK!

I saw Cradle Will Rock when it first came out in the late 90s and I don’t think I knew who Jack Black or Tenacious D was.  The movie is on channel 11 right now- everyone should watch or netflix or something. I’m hungover and enjoying my couch time jfyi.

This email practically made me cry

I can’t believe Barack found the time to email me before his acceptance speech. And I can’t believe that he won the election because of ME!! Ahhhhhh LOVE.

Stephanie —

I’m about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.

We just made history.

And I don’t want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign — every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it’s time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I’ll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing…

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,

let’s free John McCain

This first piece – “Free John McCain” – is a satire about an alternate universe where McCain defects from the GOP and unleashes his inner liberal.

Ok, I’ll admit it.

She really is a high-fashion Alaskan and does look good for a woman in her 40s. But just like John McCain being hot once upon a time and not being able to lift his arms due to years of torture…it doesn’t mean she’d make a good VP or Pres. However, I like her tied jackets and how she “breaks up the suit” (something I’m really scared to try).

Of course Dr. Steve Brule is in my top 8 friends… read up on his big news:subject: I’M GETTING MARRIED!

“And mummy​ said it’d never​ be so.

So long,​ “​Livin​g on Your Lones​ome.​”

I’d like to annou​nce that I asked​ one Miss Sarah​ Palin​ to marry​ me at a recen​t McCai​n-​Palin​ campa​ign stop here in Penty​ and she said HELL YEAH.​ No, make that SHIT YEAH.​ 

We took the Justy​ to the arcad​e and I showe​d her the diffe​rence​ betwe​en “​Morta​l Komba​t”​ and we playe​d air hocke​y.​ Thing​s got a littl​e frisk​y.​ I am start​ing to wonde​r what she’​s gonna​ say when she finds​ out I’m a virgi​n.​

Somet​imes,​ when it’s just me and her, she calls​ me “​First​ Dude”​ and I feel like so AWESO​ME.​ Somet​imes we get all lost in our words​ and forge​t what we’​re sayin​g.​ And somet​imes we just make stuff​ up so we can look all smart​ and words​ and fun and stuff​.​ 

And she total​ly gets the thing​ about​ eatin​g ants cuz they’​re made outta​ prote​in.​”
