Some known about, some not. All clever and funny. Scroll through the goodness.


“My personal life is a Brazilian soap opera, but without really hot sex on satin sheets with my twin sister's husband during an amnesia bout.”

Ryne McClaren:

“I don't know about anyone else, but I've certainly moved beyond having to handle my own waste. Way-y beyond.”

Flying Chair:

“The Hong Kong government is running a series of ads to get people to register to vote. One of the characters is called Fu Kit.”


“I'm nearly coming up to six months myself--wowee. And it's funny, what I've really learnt during those six months is how little I actually know about the things I thought I knew everything about when I first started blogging.”

Oscar Jr.:

“This ninth grader could be a real threat to me.”

Kin’s Kouch:

“Macs suck dogs.”

Ben Kepple:

“I am in a slump worse than a major-leaguer who just found out he got slapped down to the minors.”

Oliver Kamm:

“When Pilger maintains that he’s advancing empirical evidence for his prejudices, then that’s the time to get involved.”

Petrified Truth:

“It's painful to watch the major media try to analyze things they barely seem to understand.”

Michael De Soto:

“Why are you asking me how to score with women? It’s not like I know what I’m talking about. Seriously.”

Eliana Johnson:

“If Al Gore tells a funny joke at the highpoint of the DNC convention to a bunch of sycophants, will anyone laugh? Of course not. That's why he resorted to eating Tipper's face.”

Takes me back to the old Blog Watch days!

Too many blogs to watch nowadays, young feller. Why, when I were a lad, there were just Instapundit, and someone else who'd write comments on your newspaper. Show up at your house, he would, and scribble things like "Don't believe this!" and "Krugman's an ass" then he'd be on his way.

That's where the name "blog" comes from, don't you know. Had me a mouthful of corn when I heard him one day on the porch. "Blog it!" I yelled out. "Blog da door!" But it were too late, and he come right on in as usual. Ruined another newspaper.

I stand by my slur! If you've ever had to do tech support for Macs...you'd agree.

It's that damned GM corn, I tells ya. Mangling with our genetic abilities to pronounce words, forcing us to create new ones, it does. And what the hell is a car company doing messing around with corn? Next thing you know children will be pupating in those fields, all oil powered and freaky and out to kill us for our impurities. "Where's my sandwich?" I'll ask with a swung scythe as the only response.

Thanks for the link, Tim!

I was told macs don't need tech support -- they always work perfectly! Another illusion shattered.

[We]b Log = Blog.

I suppose Google would help but, without trying it, I would guess that one would get a whole lot of hits.

Good to see you resorting to the "easiest possible post" option when you've run of things to say; welcome to the real world.
