From The Onion:

Costner Tests Water-Cleaning Device In Gulf

A new kind of centrifuge that may be able to remove oil from water at rates of up to 200 gallons per minute has been financed by actor Kevin Costner and will be tested in an effort to clean up the BP oil spill. What do you think?

Peter Gunn
Systems Analyst
"The centrifuge enters the water, charms the oil into falling in love with it, then takes it out of that small-town ocean."

Laura Sanford
"That really beats the pants off Randy Quaid and his 4-gallon-a-minute centrifuge."

Pete Sanford
Registered Nurse
"It’s the least he can do considering Swing Vote was a major reason my last shrimp farm went belly-up. Long story."

Never been too cunning, I'm no linguist
But I can tell you this
Ever since I left you I've been lost

Don't be impatient, and don't you run
'Cause I want you on the tip of my...

Boy, when Marge first told me she was going to the police academy, I thought it'd be fun and exciting, you know, like that movie, "Spaceballs". But instead it's been painful and disturbing like that movie "Police Academy".

Happy Whacking Day

Episode [9F18] from season four of The Simpsons introduced us to Whacking Day, a holiday in Springfield in which the residents drive all the snakes to the center of town and beat them to death. The celebration was declared "disgusting and puerile" by a group of hillbillies and was actually created as an excuse to beat up the Irish, but
"'twas all in good fun..."

In The Simpsons universe, Whacking Day occurs on May 10th, so "Gentlemen, start your whacking!"

To the tune of O, Tannenbaum

O whacking day, o whacking day,
Our hallowed snake-skull cracking day.
We'll break their backs,
Gouge out their eyes,
Their evil hearts,
We'll pulverise.
O whacking day, o whacking day,
May God bestow His grace on thee

From 2007:

Celebrating the Day Tequila Was Invented or Something...

Since I missed my annual St. Patrick's Day rant this year, I'll do something similar for Cinco de Mayo (and big thanks to Slick for teaching me to pronounce this solomn day correctly.... mmmm... mayo....).

OK, here's the basic rant, I don't need an excuse to get drunk. I don't drink just because the liquor industry tells me to. If I were Mexican, I'd be pretty pissed at what American marketing has turned Cinco de Mayo into; a drunken tequila party instead of a celebration of the Mexican Army defeating French invaders in 1862, thus solidifying their independence.

But I'm not Mexican. If I were, maybe I'd enjoy a Tecate or one of the many varieties of Tequila that are marketed so heavily this time of year. Maybe the day would be a celebration, not just an excuse to drink and speak in poor, broken Spanish (it's the only Spanish I got...).

If I drink a tequila today (I won't, but if by some chance I do), it won't be because the liquor industry told me to. It won't even be because of a military victory in 1862 - which, as a resident of a New World country who threw off the shackles of our European opressors, I can appreciate - it will be because I want to drink a tequila.

BOJ honor of Cinco de Mayo...

From The Onion:

Taliban Claim Dud Bomb

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility on an Islamist website for a car bomb that failed to detonate in Times Square this weekend. What do you think?

Tim Bowman
Pigment Mixer
"In the spirit of candor, I should say that I too wrestled with failure while launching my own small bomb-making business."

Traci Poole
Drum Platerr
"Christianity also teaches acceptance of our failures and the use of websites. Maybe we are not so different after all."

Al Floyd
Rock Drill Operator
"The firecrackers and barbecue-grill propane tanks are a dead giveaway. Wait, you said South Carolina Taliban, right?"

"Blind Orange" Julius,
Blog Idiot
"You think that's failure? I was once involved with a social worker from Iowa after previously being involved with a social worker from Iowa."



Hey, everybody, let's have some fun
You only live but once
And when you're dead you're done
So let the good times roll, let the good times roll
I don't care if you're young or old
Get together, let the good times roll
