• The wit and wisdom and waffling and weirdness of Wesley “Help, Mary!” Clark.

• Via Simon World, this astounding story of corporate deceit. A must-read.

• Harry’s Place points out the wolfish, predatory behaviour of US troops in Iraq. Shameful.

• Bernard Slattery forecasts fun times ahead now that Amanda Vanstone is running Australia’s famous immigrant childcare facilities.

• Gary Sauer-Thompson presents an artistic memorial to Rockchucker Ed. Little Green Footballs has some excellent Palestinian artwork, too. And here’s the Professor’s say on Said. (Incidentally, Said was born in 1935, the same year as Jerry Lee Lewis, whose birthday it is today. Doesn’t sound like a happy birthday, however.)

• Also at LGF: all the thrills of the massively-attended anti-everything demonstration in London, including adorable little children aboard tanks seemingly camouflaged for conflict against the Wiggles. Dorothy is on the run.

• Crowrocker Ken Layne has sexed up his site, as the saying goes. T-shirts in two weeks!

• Caz confronts a mobile Mountain O’ Snoopies.

This is the sort of thing that made me murder all those people in the early ‘80s.

• And finally, Lileks:

Gnat has an imaginary friend now. Name of “Sally.”

“Are you sure it’s not a demon?” I asked my wife.

With respect to the Hooters story (the "Story of Corporate Deceit"):

1) They aren't "waitresses": they're "Hooters Girls."

2) This wasn't the doing of Hooters corporate: it was the doing of an independent franchisee.

3) The former Hooters Girl got her car after all.

"...including adorable little children aboard tanks seemingly camouflaged for conflict against the Wiggles."

Forget the Wiggles; this could only be the work of Barbie. That Sindy bitch is goin' down.
