Asked why he isn’t defending the Clinton Foundation as it comes under increasing scrutiny, Bill Clinton replied “I just work here. I don’t know.”

Helpful hint: pleading ignorance works better when your name’s not on the door.

President Barack 0bama presided over the traditional Memorial Day services at Arlington National Cemetery earlier today, by thanking all of the Navy Corpsemen and other fallen members of our armed services present who had died protecting our nation from the scourge of Climate Change.

After solemnly laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Comic by mistake, the President delivered his Memorial Day Address to the assembled throng of military and media.

“Let me be clear,” the President said in his typical articulate, bright and clean manner, his trousers perfectly creased, “It is only because of the ultimate sacrifice of brave men and women like yourselves over the past four-hundred-some-odd years, who gave your lives raising awareness of ManBearPig across all fifty-seven states, that we have been able to keep the scourge of the pending Global Climate Catastrophe at bay. To those of you who have not been derelict in your duties, your efforts have been nothing short of… Error. Reset required. Press control-alt-delete to reboot system.

With that, the ceremony was abruptly ended and the President whisked away to a luxurious private golf course for the remainder of the day after grabbing some ice cream.

President Obama said that the root cause of unrest in Baltimore is “there are not enough jobs,”.

But I’m sure that’ll change now that so many people can add looting and arson to their resumes.

Someone thinks this is the flag the first man on Mars should plant:

The flag is blue to represent the importance of water to life on Earth. Seven rings (standing in for the seven continents) interlock to form a flower, suggesting the interconnection of the world, regardless of territory or nationality.

Personally, I say “flag of the Mirror Universe Terran Empire, or nothing”:

What say you?

On Memorial Day, I sometimes get thanked for my service (US Navy, 1985-1991), but that’s what Veteran’s Day is for. Today, it’s about the men who sealed their oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution with their blood.

Springer’s Blog has some thoughts on that.

And his post reminds me to ask the question “what happened to the guys who raised the flag on Iwo Jima?”

IwoJima.com answers to my satisfaction.

Portland, Oregon is now home to the world’s first vegan mini-mall.

Is it bad that my first thought is “I could make killing opening a steakhouse across the street”?

You’ll need to listen fast during some parts. They enunciate, but you’ve still got to focus to follow what they’re saying.

A new report shows that 200 billion barrels of oil may lay beneath the Antarctic ice.

That’s good news. Obama was running out of promising places to close to drilling.

Maybe it was just me, but I kept having to fight a feeling of terror in my gut at the thought of one of those nigh-invisible tiny parts accidentally skittering off the bench and onto the floor. Made me nervous as a tightrope walker.

Baltimore’s Mayor said that owners of looted stores should rebuild instead of leaving, calling it a “smart investment”.

Only if they’re selling guns, alarms, or private security.
