Not humor, but anyway: A flock of birds
For lack of a better idea of where to put this.

A side note to the "P.Z. Myers in the news..." topic
P.Z. Myers in the news (the catholic church communion wafer incident)

quote:
Ole was the only Lutheran in his little town of all Catholics. That was okay, but the neighbors had a problem with his barbecuing venison every Friday. Since they couldn't eat meat on Friday, the tempting aroma was getting the best of them. So the neighbors got together and went over and persuaded Ole to join their church. The big day came and the priest had Ole kneel. He put his hand on Ole's head and said, "Ole, you were born a Lutheran, you were raised a Lutheran, and now," he said as he sprinkled some incense over Ole's head, "now you are a Catholic!"

Ole was happy and the neighbors were happy. But the following Friday evening at suppertime, there was again that aroma coming from Ole's yard. The neighbors went to talk to him and as they approached the fence, they heard Ole saying: "You were born a whitetail deer, you were raised a whitetail, and now," he said with a sprinkle of seasoning, "now you are a walleye!"

Doonsebury, from Aug. 1
Just discovered this in an old newspaper. I don't have a link to an online version.

Frame 1:

Michael Doonsebury(?): "You know Joanie, from day one you seemed to think that Obama's personal appeal gave him an unfair edge...

Frame 2:

Mike: ...As if using his extraordinary gifts to excite voters was somehow cheating!"

Frame 3:

Joanie Caucus: "I know, I know. It's ridiculous. I guess I'm still a little bitter he had so many natural advantages over Hillary."

Frame 4:

Mike: "Like being black with a Muslim name?"

Joanie: "Well, exactly! Who knew America was ready?"

They wanted to adopt a highway in Missouri
quote:
Most states have Adopt-A-Highway programs where organizations and groups can volunteer to keep a section of a highway clean of rubbish. Some years ago the state of Missouri lost a legal battle when it tried to prevent the Ku Klux Klan from volunteering. But they were ready in 2008 when a neo-Nazi group called the Nationalist Socialist Movement volunteered to clean a highway. "Sure," said the Missouri Department of Transportation, "You can clean this section of highway four times a year." The state immediately renamed the highway the Rabbi Abraham Joshua Herchel Memorial Highway, who gained Jewish fame by escaping Nazi Germany and becoming a prominent Jewish theologian and civil rights lobbyist in the United States. The Nazis are now keeping "his" highway clean - and don't dare stop.

O'Brien on Beck on racism
"Yesterday on Fox News, commentator Glenn Beck said that he believes President Obama is a racist. To be fair, every time you watch Glenn Beck, it does get a little easier to hate white people." - Conan O'Brien

I earlier weeded a couple of Bush era quotes out of my "signature". I've now added the above quoted.

Yes, it's a lot of quotes. But I make a point of only activating my "signature" occasionally, by no means every time I post.

Thankfully Stephen Hawking has good American health care
quote:
Which the editorial board of Investors Business Daily obviously is, as they allowed this to be printed on their pages.

People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the U.K., where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless.

Perhaps they don't have access to the Internets at Investors Business Daily, because even Wikipedia will tell you that Hawking is British, lives in Britain, and has lived to the age of 67 there, and was diagnosed with ALS under, and treated by the National Health Service for his entire adult life. They must have just been fooled by his voice synthesizer's American accent.


A little more at the source.

The editorial in question has since been corrected, or something like that.

But why can't the BBC correctly pronounce the "a" at the end of names?
I'm not sure which is worse, Barack Obamer or the Dali Lamer.

I wonder how they pronounce "Sidney Poitier"?

Yes, I often listen to the beeb late nights/early mornings here in the colonies. It's on National Public Radio.
