Joe FREAKING Biden

Not only do I find nothing funny about the Obama administraiton, I find nothing funny about politics in general as that a very serious matter, but Steven Crowder tries to find some jocularity in it all:

Love the impression of Rainman handling a crisis.

Question

I mentioned a car backfiring the other day, but I just realized I’ve never actually heard a car backfire before. Is that an actual thing modern cars do or is that just something from TV?

Saving the Earth

Wired has some idea on how to take out an asteroid determined to destroy us. There are all those sissy environmentalists worrying about recycling aluminum cans when if you really want to save the environment, this is what you have to worry about. I have my own plans for dealing with asteroids, but that’s not our only worry. We have to worry about black holes and even our own sun. There are so many interstellar threats out there that it seems so silly to worry about little things on this planet like the economy. We have to identify everything out there in space and have plans to destroy it all. We need not just dinosaurs with rocket launchers, but also a Death Star… for starters. We can maybe ignore these things for a while longer, but eventually conservatives will have to take over environmentalism and desissify it by coming up with plans to seek out and destroy everything that threatens this planet. Let’s not let Earth Day become a memorial day.

Fun Facts About Britain – UPDATED 4-2-09

Before Obama got to the G20 summit, he had some flunkies dig up information about the country, including the fact that it was “slightly smaller than Oregon“.

BOR-ing!

He should’ve called me, because I would’ve hooked him up with information he could actually use, like these:


FUN FACTS ABOUT BRITAIN

* There’s some confusion over the terms England, Britain, and UK. England is a country. Britain is an island comprised of England, Scotland, and Wales. UK is a very dirty word that’s missing two letters.

* The British eat twice as many baked beans per head as Americans do, which may explain their obsession with greenhouse gasses.

* In 1752, Britain switched between the Gregorian and Julian calendars, leading to the complete disappearance of the days between 3 and 14 September. Britain unjustly accused an innocent America of stealing the days, causing a resentment which most historians cite as the primary cause of the Revolutionary War.

* There are over 30,000 John Smiths in Britain, including the Queen before she changed her name to Elizabeth.

* Britain’s emergency number is 999 instead of 911, which – over there – is the number for an adult chat line. This causes a lot of confusion for Americans who expect “what’s your emergency?” and get “what are you wearing?” instead.

* In 1745 the government made it illegal for Scotsmen to wear kilts. The ban remained in force until 1832. Anyone who’s seen a Scotsman on a windy day wishes it still were.

* The two favorite pastimes in Britain are drinking tea and frantically searching for a public toilet.

* In 2012, the Olympics will be held in London, with Britain being the favorite to win the gold in the 100 Meter Silly Walk.

* Although people often make fun of the tall, bearskin hats worn by the Royal Guard, it’s been scientifically determined that the hats are only 5% goofier-looking than Donald Trump’s combover.

* Every year in May, the town of Bognor Regis hosts its annual clown parade. A similar event takes place in the US, where it is called Congress.

* Theatre Royal Bristol is the oldest continuously working theatre in Britain and has been staging “Cats” since 1766.

* Cheddar Cheese was discovered 800 years ago by accident when a milk maid allowed a pail of milk to go bad whilst being stored in the caves at Cheddar. Thus its nickname of “Stupid Lazy Wench Cheese”.

* Matthew Webb was the first person to successfully swim the English Channel. He left from Dover in 1875, arrived in France 22 hours later, immediately accepted the surrender of the frightened populace, and renamed the country Webbland, as it is known to this very day.

* The Hansom Cab (the first taxi) was invented and produced in the town of Hinckley by Joseph Hansom in 1835. He later invented the cab driver by founding the nation of Pakistan.

* Popular as a sandwich spread in Britain, Marmite is a foul-smelling, brown, sticky paste reminiscent of congealed soy sauce, made from yeast-extract left over from the brewing process. It’s sold under the slogan, “It ain’t good, but at least it ain’t haggis”.

* Nottingham is home to the smallest public cinema in the world. With only 22 seats, it’s perfect for the screening of any Michael Moore documentary.


Now if you’ll excuse me, I really have to go find a public toilet.

UPDATE – I *told* you not to dial 911

“I Can’t Save Those People Right Now; I Need to Finish Another Story on the Abuses of the Bush Administration”

Here’s a funny cartoon (hat tip Media Blog):

Superman being a newspaper reporter seems like such a hugely outdated idea. Originally, back in 1930s, it made sense because a newspaper is where Superman would have to work to keep abreast of anything important going on. That’s long been an outdated concept, and now they have Superman be a journalist because that’s what he likes doing. But why in the world would someone capable of doing important, useful things want to just sit around and write about other people doing useful things? Isn’t journalism for those who can’t do anything about important events other than write about them?

What Not to Say to Muslims

Here’s a helpful list of phrases not to say in front of a Muslim like “Freedom” and “Assimilation”. Seems to miss a few obvious ones, though, like “Technological Parasites”, “Pork Sandwich”, and “Overly-Sensitive Whiny Babies”.
