Giving Dayton a Bad Name

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

Maybe I’m late to the party, but I just stumbled on the website of June Griffin, who is, to put it nicely, something of a crazy old bat (see examples here, here, here, and here; thanks to 10,000 Monkeys & a Camera). Lots of humor here, but the funniest part is her posing with a painting of Thomas Paine on the front page. Umm, didn’t Paine have a thing or two to say about mixing politics and religion?

Gays, Mexicans, and Darwinists beware! June Griffin is coming FOR YOU!

The Rep does have a point.

Headline of the Day

Friday, May 4th, 2007

A Knoxville News-Sentinel headline: “Porn pilferer slips away with booty”.

The first line is also pretty funny: “A sticky-fingered adult bookstore customer allegedly shoplifted a handful of magazines this morning and then ended up driving over a clerk’s ankle while speeding away in a car, according to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.” I thought the Sentinel was a family newspaper.

Oh, It So Does Not!

I must have missed this a few months back, but it’s worth reading if for no other reason than it is (unintentionally) hilarious. Apparently, soy makes people gay. Meanwhile, “World Nut Daily” continues to live up to its nickname.

It’s Good to be Fred Thompson

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

It’s official. Fred Thompson is running for president. Oh, he hasn’t said so yet, but his wife (pictured below) is encouraging him to do so.

As Ace puts it:

And when a woman like that starts saying that she finds the notion of a run for president exciting and stimulating, you listen.

By the way, Fred Thompson also used to date Lorrie Morgan (pictured below). Both Morgan and the current bride are, ahem, considerably younger than Mr. Thompson.

Ace throws a cold shower on the Thompson bandwagon, however:

Although I like Thompson, it should be noted he only served one full term in the Senate, and wasn’t considered particularly influential, innovative, or even hard-working. His “executive experience,” such as it is, came long, long ago as a corruption-bustin’ prosecutor. Good experience, to be sure, but he hasn’t managed anything lately except a senatorial staff and the small corporation that forms around a working actor.

Given what we’ve just seen, should that come as any surprise? Still, it must be good to be Fred Thompson, and I wouldn’t mind seeing him jump in the race.

Meet Your Modern Stone Age Family

Finally, some real must-see TV:

Winner for most unusual piece of development this pilot season goes to ABC, which has turned a series of quirky Geico commercials into an actual half-hour comedy project.

“Cavemen” will revolve around three pre-historic men who must battle prejudice as they attempt to live as normal thirtysomethings in modern Atlanta.

Dave Barry’s latest column, which deals with Miami and its “third world status,” is a hoot.

Think We’ll Get One of These in Boone?

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

Dutch prostitutes are getting some recognition:

Amsterdam’s red light district is reportedly to receive a bronze statue dedicated to prostitutes around the world.

According to the Dutch agency ANP, sculptress Els Rijerse made the statue at the request of a former prostitute Mariska Majoor, who a decade ago founded a centre on prostitution in the Dutch capital.

Majoor was quoted as saying by ANP that the statue would be a first of its kind and that it had received the blessing of the city authorities.

The statue represents a self-assured woman, her hands on her hips, looking sideways towards the sky, and standing on a doorstep, ANP said.

The precise place where the statue will be laid and its title have not yet been announced, it said.
