You Can't Make This Up!

A speeding pickup rear-ended a woman's sedan on the South Side on Friday morning and sheriff's officials say the driver said it was Jesus' will because the other motorist was not “driving like a Christian.”

Pirates and Hairspray

A statement from Captain Crab, the Last Saskatchewan Pirate, and The Dread Pirate Roberts:

"There are a bunch of loony ex fisherman over in Somalia that are making piracy look bad. They are attracting too much press coverage of their exploits. This does nothing to further our political ambitions in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. We totally disagree with their abominable acts*."

*We do find it amazing that guys in speed boats can stop and take over a super tanker however. We're still working with schooners and swords.

And finally, why aren't men taught how to use hair spray? I either don't get enough on and the wind, which has been howling here, makes me look like someone with a really bad Mohawk or too much on and then it's kind of plastic looking.

This was a HUGE tourist attraction in the 40's, 50's and 60's. There used to be a cafe that was shaped like a teepee attached. God, I hate progress!

The Economy and You

The economy has certainly taken a downturn according to all reliable sources. The New York Times has an article about one company that has seen an increase in sales. Here is a bit with a link to the whole article.

"Through war and recession, Americans have turned to the glistening canned product from Hormel as a way to save money while still putting something that resembles meat on the table. Now, in a sign of the times, it is happening again, and Hormel is cranking out as much Spam as its workers can produce."

Here is the entire article.

What Matters?

The economy is slowing down, things are going to hell, but we all have one thing to aspire to. Let Mr. Randy Newman explain:

Why McCain Lost

I have been in Southern Iowa (or Northern Missouri, since they're both the same). Sometimes NPR is unavailable, so Christian radio and Rush Limbaugh are the things I listen to. It's all in good fun and a learning experience to hear this b...s... every so often.

Yesterday the main "Ditto Head" explained why Oklahoma was the only state that McCain carried every county in. Why, you ask?

According to Rush Baby:

1. No same day voter registration
2. Voter ID required
3. Voter registration ends 28 days before the election
4. Early voting only on the Saturday before the election

So, My Republican Friends, change those things in every state and get this country back on the "Right Wing Track".

I have my own theory, but don't want to offend my Oklahoma friends.

A Day in Iowa

What fool would name a town Grant?
I love this old farm house, with the screened in porch on the first floor and the open porch on the second.
These guys were just happy to see someone. Even me!

Captain Crab's Really Bad Joke of the Day

A cowboy rides his horse up to a saloon.

All the patrons gawked as the cowboy kissed his horse on the butt before coming in and asking for a drink.

The bartender serves him and asks, "Mind if I ask why'd ya kiss your horse on the butt?"

The cowboy says, "It's 'cause I got chapped lips."

The bartender asks, "Does manure help them heal?"

Cowboy replies, "No, but it keeps me from licking them."

Decision 2012

Well, now that I have recovered from my post election hangover and look forward to the next 2 years free from any presidential campaigning, comes this:

"Two potential candidates will be in Iowa before month’s end, multiple prospects — almost certainly including Sarah Palin — will make high-profile appearances this week at the Republican Governors Association meeting, and Newt Gingrich’s name has already been floated in a Bob Novak column."

And Now..............

the post election depression sets in. I've read all the papers and all of the blogs. Nothing exciting happened yesterday, well there was a bit of Sarah trashing*, but nothing else that interested me.

I feel like the guy in Forrest Gump, who after he and many others ran with Forrest and then Forrest said he was going home, said "what are we supposed to do now?"

*An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast."

Election Night Drinking Games

OK, tomorrow is election day, so tomorrow night is "election day alcohol abuse night". It's not as easy as just going to a bar or sitting at home and enjoying your favorite adult beverage. No, it's a lot more serious than that!

Here are a couple ways to enjoy the evening:

1. Every time your candidate wins an electoral vote (or your least favorite) take a drink. This should have you sufficiently soused by 9:00 pm (depending on your time zone of course).

2. Watch FOX News* and when anyone says McCain is still in this thing, or words to that effect, take a drink.

3. Whenever you see Sarah Palin or Joe the Wannabe Plumber take a drink.

These are just a few suggestions. If you have better ideas please post a comment. Thank you and so long Dubya!

*reason enough to drink heavily!
