Sarah Palin gets Pranked!

Whoa! I just came across this-a prank call to Sarah Palin from Quebec prankster duo the "Masked Avengers"-Marc-Antoine Audette and Sébastien Trudel, posing as Nicolas Sarkozy! I just had to post this! After initially thinking it wasn't true, I found it is a "real prank." Some people may say this is "mean" but I think beneath that "folksy charm," Mrs. Palin has been down and dirty with the smears and distortions on the campaign trail also.

"Governor Palin was mildly amused to learn that she had joined the ranks of heads of state, including President Sarkozy and other celebrities, in being targeted by these pranksters. C'est la vie," she said.

Cartoons just for you. Yeah! You! Who in the f*%$ did you think I meant!? Casablanca Ortiz?! Jehosophat Stinkenheimer?!

This "G.O.P. PSA" from For Tax Reasons, work of Ben Levin and Matt Burnett, is kind of a strange 'toon, but funny in a macabre Saturday AM cartoon-type way!

If Stewie ruled the world.

Of aliens and memes

This just in....Some important explanatory information about Cindy McCain. I knew there had to be something with that "otherworldly" look about her!

Blog pal Dr Zibbs tagged me with the 6 odd things/quirks about me meme. Try saying that 6 times, really fast. I dare you!

The purpose is to share 6 non-important things/habits/quirks about your self.

Here are the rules for this meme:

1. Link to the person that tagged you

2. Post the rules on your blog

3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself

4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs

5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

6. Let your tagged peops know once your entry is UP.

1. I am a little OCD about some things. If I am the last person out the door in the morning, (and especially if I am running late) I will check to see that the coffeemakers, and/or toaster etc are unplugged-(as we always do every AM) but not just once, but several times! I will check our front security door several times. In my mind, I am thinking maybe didn't really feel that that the door was locked, or the appliances off/unplugged.

2. I am right-handed, all except for writing (on paper) with my left. When I was teaching in the classroom, I found that I could and would write with my right hand easier than with my left. (something about the angle/perspective?!) Who knows?

3. If I have had a crappy day at work, or I am in a bad mood, I would much rather listen to heavy music-80' metal, punk, grunge, whatever is "harder-sounding" than some easier listening, supposedly calming music. If I listen to happy pop stuff, it gets me more pissed. I would rather the music "commiserate" with me at the time I feel like s*%$, than tell me I should be smiling and whistlin' a tune!

4. I cannot cross my eyes.

5. Nor can I do the Vulcan Salute (without "helping" my fingers to make the sign)

6. I "save" all manner of insects/arachnids in the house by using a special cup to capture and then heave them far outside. If I hear my wife say-"Hon! Better get your spider cup! Quick!" then I know it's probably a large hairy spider, who had just wandered off course and entered our humble abode. Of course, flies, roaches, and mosquitos are dead meat, but I will save the actually docile, scaredy cat black widow-(hey they are good to get rid of the damn flies!) and the occasional centipede. Wasps and bees probably not. Too hard to catch!

and now...I am supposed to tag 6 people:

1. bubbles' new blog

2. Two Can Anne

3. When Will I Use This?

4. For Your Entertainment

5. I make no promises...

6. Tits List

Do the Wall Street Shuffle!

A perfect song to describe what happened to our economy! Too much greed, and too much deregulation of that greed! One of my favorite guitar songs-The Wallstreet Shuffle by 10CC. You can download it, or check it out here:

Before we knew that Barack was coming to ABQ, we had gotten tickets to go see Gordon Lightfoot. I know some of you may laugh, but I think he was/is? a pretty good guitarist/songwriter. Besides, he has been sick lately and this may be his last concert tour. Well, we went to the concert. Poor Gordon! Geez! He just isn't the same. I told my wife/relatives who went with us-if I could just put out of my mind that this guy was Gordon Lightfoot, I could take it. His songs that I didn't know were ok, but the familiar ones were just not the same. Anyway, later, after the concert we went to the local Flying Star to get a late snack, and heard from people who had been to the Obama rally that there were approximately 60K!! In the paper this AM, it said 45K, but our paper is like Fox News-print version! The news of the great turnout in this city/state that was supposed to be a big questionmark for Obama is great! McCain had a rally also in ABQ yesterday in the AM. Supposedly 1100 turned out for that!
