Monday, April 21, 2014 8:00 am

During a high-profile criminal trial, an alcoholic Manhattan court stenographer repeatedly typed, “I hate my job, I hate my job” instead of the trial dialogue.

Eliciting a brief letter from Jay Carney, which said simply “live the dream, bro”.

4 Women Who Are Really Good at What They Do

Sunday, April 20, 2014 10:00 pm

I’m sure there’s a political metaphor in there somewhere, but if you don’t feel like digging for it, go ahead and just enjoy the fruits of thousands of hours of rehearsal. These gals make this look effortless.

Which – trust me – is REALLY hard to do when there’s a cello involved (says the former cello player).

It’s Really Scary

Sunday, April 20, 2014 8:00 pm

A new poll shows Americans trust the IRS more than Facebook.

I suppose Facebook might’ve scored better on the survey if they had the power to audit their critics, too.

22 Hilariously Derpy Animals

Now, these pictures are perfectly entertaining on their own (especially eerily-human smile-dog), but I find it ramps it up a bit if you imagine them all captioned “I helped design Healthcare.gov!”

lolbama! Part 181

Submit entries to lolterizt@gmail.com

Meanwhile, pass ‘em around, spread the love, and if you make your own, don’t be shy about dropping a link to your pics in the comments. The more, the merrier.

This week’s uncaptioned picture for you to play with:


Fatwa Arbuckle, for remembering a line everyone in the media has worked so hard to pretend never happened.


PRODUCTION NOTES:
#1: When creating lolbama! pictures, please caption with either black or white text, as colors like red and yellow tend to blur badly when I compress the images.

#2: Standard image size for these posts is 350px wide by whatever high. If you can have your images 350px wide before you caption them, I won’t end up shrinking your captions into illegibility when I re-size the images.

MAKE YOUR OWN: The free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

STYLE NOTE: Short captions are usually better. Your goal is 10 words or less, with humor value tending to increase exponentially as the number of words approaches 1.

IMAGE SOURCES: Lots of great Obama pics to be found at the White House Flickr page.

Send your submissions to lolterizt@gmail.com and – if they aren’t obscene (IMAO is a PG-13 site) and don’t suck too terribly bad – I’ll post them for you. Remember to include your name (and blog URL, if applicable) so I know who to thank.

In response to Russia’s Ukraine actions, NASA suspended the exchange of emails with Russian officials.

Poor Russia. Now they’ll never acquire the technology to underfund a space agency.

A Solution for Any Problem

Saturday, April 19, 2014 12:00 pm

A new survey shows that Obamacare will cost large companies $5,000 more per employee and add hundreds of millions to their overhead.

Something needs to be done about that. Quick! Raise the minimum wage!

Large Wooden Badger, Maybe?

The State Department plans to spend $400,000 in taxpayer money to purchase a camel statue for the new American embassy in Pakistan.

That’d be a good investment, if it were hollow and filled with Marines.

He Really Obama-ed That Prediction

Friday, April 18, 2014 4:00 pm

Despite Obama’s promise of “$2500 in savings”, 75% of Obamacare enrollees actually saw their premiums increase.

Obama gets it wrong so often, if that man were a stopped clock, he’d find a way to only be right once a day.
