Editor Humor

My job suddenly seems so much more bearable. At least I don't have to edit Palin's speeches.

The Illinois state university system is in the grips of a scandal over students being allowed to attend state universities even though they are under-qualified.

The investigation has found that the under-qualified students are white and bad at sports.

In A Handbasket

I couldn't help it. When they said Michael Jackson had "touched many people", I laughed.

The Bells

I stopped at the store to grab a few things on my way to work, and I passed a display of six packs on sale. "Hm," I thought to myself, "Oberon is on sale. I'll have to pick some up later."

"Wait... Oberon?"

Bell's is back in Illinois. When did this happen? Is it back in Chicago or just down here?

I have got to get out of the house more often.

Obama Bigger Douchebag Than Previously Suspected

Human rights activity thus far:

Ruled out prosecution of torturers

Quashed ACLU FOIA into prisoner abuse

Reinstated Gitmo kangaroo courts

Oh, Padma...

If I'd know you needed the money, I'd have sent you $10. We could have worked something out.

I know that I said that I'd watch Top Chef even if it was just an hour of watching Padma eat but I...


Wait. What was I talking about?

This is not going to become a collection of YouTube videos, I promise. We're swamped and getting ready to move to a new building. Hopefully, sometime in the next week or two, things will return to a semblance of normalcy. In the meantime, expect more of these cheap and easy posts.

CP, you're still blocked. I think our firewall relies on a list, not on actual content, so until you get cleared from the list, I'm stuck.

Flan, you're so near and yet so far. Unfortunately, between work and volunteer stuff, I don't think I'm going to be able to make the trip to Chicago while you're in town. Sorry!

Emily Says...

I love Concrete Blonde as much as the next guy, but is Johnette Napolitano really qualified to be head of Homeland Security?
