Linkfest day one: Guilty pleasures

Today, all things excessively humorous....let's start with york alum Gary Cruse who runs The Owner's Manual and blogs about one of my favourite topics - illogical rednecks....

....Of course, who can forget my old favourites RightWingDuck with his Monologues and IMAO, especially when he lets RWD post things like Ask Teresa:
"Dear Terr-ray-zuh:
Are you a good witch, or a bad witch?

Dear Sefton:
What is it with you conservatives? Good or Bad? Black or White? Fighting for the us or against?
I believe in nuance.
Frankly, I'm offended by your question.
Witch indeed.

......There's also Can I be Frank with you?:
John Kerry visits a school classroom. They are in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asks Mr. Kerry if he would like to lead the discussion of the word 'tragedy.' So the illustrious Senator asks the class for an example of a tragedy.

One little boy stands up and offers: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and kills him, that would be a 'tragedy'.'

'No,' says Kerry, 'that would be an accident.'

A little girl raises her hand: 'If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.'

'I'm afraid not,' explains Mr. Kerry. 'That's what we would call a 'great loss'.'

The room goes silent. No other children volunteered. Kerry searches the room. 'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a 'tragedy'?'

Finally, at the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a quiet voice, he says: 'If your campaign plane, carrying you, Mr. Kerry, were struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a 'tragedy'.'

'Fantastic!' exclaims Kerry. 'That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a 'tragedy'?'

'Well,' says the boy 'because it certainly wouldn't be a 'great loss' and it probably wouldn't be an 'accident' either.'"


Of course, all my favourite blogs are from The Alliance, a handy little bunch of friends if I ever had...this week we're concoting Kerry's Cabinet....I need to come up with:

"The Vice President and, by law, the heads of 15 executive departments-the Secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, and the Attorney General. Under President George W. Bush, Cabinet-level rank also has been accorded to the Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency; Director, Office of Management and Budget; the Director, National Drug Control Policy; and the U.S. Trade Representative."

Man, that is going to be fodder for some boring psych class one of these days...

OK, one last link purely for creativety before I go study - check out Minion of the Great Satan.

One month of glorious blogging celebrated.....
