Josh Earnest described Joe Biden as “a core member” of the president’s national security team.

Yes, I’m sure the Padres say the same thing to the San Diego Chicken.

Victorian Visions of the Year 2000

I think in *that* year 2000, the 22nd Amendment never passed and Cyborg Ronald Reagan was prepping to run for his 6th term.

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


Hatless in Hattiesburg. Man… I *really* miss the Iraqi Information Minister…


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.

To “streamline” HealthCare.gov, the 76 screens in the online application have been reduced to 16.

Look for Obamacare to “streamline” your healthcare options similarly.

Personally, I’d always figured Prince was just going to be another flash-in-the-pan, one-hit-wonder, easily-forgotten 80’s act. I certainly never expected him to still be popular when “1999” became an outdated song. And I heard he’s just released 2 new albums.

Yeah… Nostradamus I ain’t.

Anyway, back in 1997, he appeared on the short-lived Muppet Show reboot “Muppets Tonight“. This is from that:

24 Outrageous Trivial But Moderately Interesting Prince Stories

UPDATE: From the comments, Zeke [High Praise!] clarifies on the video:

To give you a little context here, this “music video” is what happened after Rizzo the rat challenged Prince to make a song out of a random item on the cafeteria menu. Afterwards, Rizzo bets him $20 he can’t do it again. He picks another item, Prince immediately starts singing again, and Rizzo facepalms and hands him the money.

Oops! Suddenly the EPA can’t find copies of one of their top official’s text messages.

Probably hiding them in the basement of one of those coal-fired plants they shut down.

Tech innovator Elon Musk warned that a “super-intelligent” machine might wipe out humanity.

Or a not-so-intelligent West African travel policy.

When asked to name one of Joe Biden’s accomplishments, one attendee at a political rally featuring Biden answered “he’s got a great grin”.

So does a jack-o’-lantern.

Something Anonymiss said [High Praise! and sandwich bacon to her] made me want to try out the phrase & see if it’ll stick.

For comparison, here’s what Michelle’s kids are eating at their fancy private school:

Asked to list successes in President Obama’s Iraq policy during a presser, the State Department’s Jen Psaki was unable to name one.

Probably had to bite her tongue to keep from saying “kept you from talking about Benghazi”.
