Barack Osama? – Ooops! Was it an honest mistake?

Barack Osama?

Barack Osama?

 
According to CNN’s Political Ticker Blog, this Rensselaer County (near Albany, NY) ballot was accidentally printed with Barack Obama’s name mispelled.  Hmmm… What do you think?  Was it an honest mistake?  Was it a freudian slip? Depending on your view of things, this could be filed under extremely funny or extremely disturbing.  Let me know what you think about it in the comment section.

Paper Beats Rock…Or… Does It?

 

I understand how scissors can beat paper, and I get
how a rock can beat scissors, but there’s absolutely
no way, paper can beat rock. Is paper supposed to
magically wrap around rock and leave it immobile?
Why, the heck, can’t paper do this to people? Why
aren’t sheets of college ruled notebook paper
constantly suffocating students as they take notes in
class? I’ll tell you why! Because paper can’t beat
anybody. A rock would tear that stuff up in 2
seconds. When I play rock, paper, scissors, I always
choose rock. Then, when somebody claims to have
beaten me with their paper, I can punch them in the
face with my already clenched fist and say, oops,
I’m sorry, I thought your paper would protect you.

 

You may have already read this in it original form.  I took the liberty of cleaning up the foul language.  I would like to thank MuseVox for showing this to me on her Stumble Upon blog.  I don’t think it needs the harsh language (including the F-bomb) to be hillarious, however, if you would like to read the original post, you can find it here:

Don't Taze Me Bro

Don't Taze Me Bro!

This just cracked me up this morning. I was driving down 75 Southbound (just north of Dallas, Texas) when I snapped this pic with my cell phone.  If you haven’t seen the video that this references, you can watch it here:  Don’t Taze Me Bro!

First Beauty Pageant for Nuns

You’ve come a long way baby! Virginia Slims would be proud.  However, I’m not sure this is the type of activity that a nun should be focused on.  Next thing you know, they’ll be installing Nail Salons and Starbucks in all of the Abbeys.

Poster nuns to vie for ‘Miss Sister Italy’ title

The first beauty pageant for nuns debuts next month with the advent of “Miss Sister Italy,” aimed at erasing a stereotype of nuns as being old and sad, a newspaper reported Sunday.

…”You really think all nuns are old, stunted and sad? This isn’t the case any more, thanks to the arrival in our country of young and vital nuns,” notably from Africa and Latin America, Father Rungi added.  (more…)

I’m sorry but the Late Night Television Circuit is going to have a field day with this one.  Just wait…  You’ll be hearing zingers like, “Hey, did you hear about the beauty pageant for the nuns? – Yeah, too bad Mother Teresa is not still around, she would have won that hands down.”

Maybe they are just bored out their minds?  What is this world coming to?  I just don’t think it’s a very good idea. What do you think?

UPDATE: August 29, 2008 – I guess this isn’t too far out of the question as we see that presidential candidate, John McCain, just chose Sara Palin, Govenor of Alaska, and former beauty pageant winner as his VP running mate.

Cow Farts: Who Cut the Cheese?

Cow Farts Collected in Plastic Tank for Global Warming Study

Scientists are examining cow farts and burps in a novel bid to combat global warming.

A cow stands in her pen at the National Institute of Agricultural Technology in Castelar, near Buenos Aires. Argentine scientists are taking a novel approach to studying global warming, strapping plastic tanks to the backs of cows to collect methane 

Experts said the slow digestive system of cows makes them a key producer of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that gets far less public attention than carbon dioxide.

In a bid to understand the impact of the wind produced by cows on global warming, scientists collected gas from their stomachs in plastic tanks attached to their backs.   (More…)

That poor cow!  I hope no one tries to figure out how human farts can be used to fuel cars… Holy Cow (pun intended) what would that look like?

Video: The Baby Kittens Have Arrived

This is a video montage of our newly arrived baby kittens.  They are absolutely adorable.  Enjoy!

If you haven’t been following this story, you can catch up by reading about the stray cat, now affectionately known as Mieshka, who showed up on our door step… pregnant, by clicking here:  Mieshka’s Story.  We had no idea that she was carrying baby kittens when we took her in.  What a surprise.

The video montage of the baby kittens is set to the tune of “My Funny Valentine” performed by Matt Damon.

Here is the video:
