  1. What Republican would appoint 5 ambassadorships to openly Gay men? What my President ought to do now is appoint Lady Bunny ambassador to Uganda.

  2. "People's Sexiest Man Alive"

    Does anyone care anymore? With everyone not only having access to internet porn, but more and more people making their own, it's pretty clear that Adam Levine is not the sexiest man alive, by a long shot.

  3. "Scientists discover oldest living animal on Earth, and then immediately kill it."

    That's science for you. It's a fine and dandy to be right, but at some point you have to also be human. Don't you?

  4. Maybe we can get that team of scientists to study House Republicans?

  5. The title regarding the "oldest living animal on earth" is really misleading. If you would just read the article it becomes readily apparent that it is probably *not* the oldest living animal on earth, and that there are probably many more that are much older that are killed due to fishing every year. It was the oldest proved so far, but that proof couldn't have been obtained without opening the shell. The title is linkbait, and is like saying that scientists discovered, then immediately killed, the oldest salmon on earth.

  6. Well, you can always count on the Roman Catholic clergy to do stuff that is both stupid and funny. I think I could do a comedy routine about the exorcism.

  7. "People's Sexiest Man Alive"

    That title always is a little disturbing to me. Like, did last year's winner die?
