2 stories about "waste"

Story 1:
PORT OF SWEET GRASS, Mont. - Jesse Huffman insists he didn't do it on purpose, but the toilet he left plugged after "nature called" at this border crossing in north-central Montana has him facing criminal charges

Story 2:
And that was bad news for Chicago's First Lady, a passing tour boat filled with 100 people on an architecture sightseeing cruise that was doused by the falling excrement.

Bushisms from Slate

From the Complete Bushisms


"Secondly, the tactics of our—as you know, we don't have relationships with Iran. I mean, that's—ever since the late '70s, we have no contacts with them, and we've totally sanctioned them. In other words, there's no sanctions—you can't—we're out of sanctions."—Annandale, Va., Aug. 9, 2004


"I mean, if you've ever been a governor of a state, you understand the vast potential of broadband technology, you understand how hard it is to make sure that physics, for example, is taught in every classroom in the state. It's difficult to do. It's, like, cost-prohibitive."—Washington, D.C., June 24, 2004 (Thanks to Michael Shively.)

"We formed a backup plan in case things turn out to be on the jazz," Peck said, using the team's code phrase for a troublesome situation. "Murdock's gonna perch a helicopter on top of the courtroom. B.A. found a broken Howitzer in a junkyard, got it working again, and got it mounted in our van. We also have a whole team of troubled teens B.A. befriended and taught valuable lessons. They placed explosives throughout the courtroom and along our subterranean escape route. If need be, they'll blow that courtroom apart."

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A chain of private California schools that taught immigrants there are 53 U.S. states and four branches of the U.S. government was ordered to stop handing out phony diplomas this week, state Attorney General Bill Lockyer said on Friday.

TWISM - Shaq's testimony

Reports surfaced this week that if the Kobe Bryant case goes to trial, Shaquille O'Neal could be called to testify about an alleged encounter Bryant had with a woman at a Thanksgiving party at O'Neal's home in Orlando in 2002. Of course, we can't be positive how O'Neal's testimony would play out, but we think it would go pretty much like this . . .

EASTER: I see. Did you notice if Mr. Bryant was drinking the night of your party?

O'NEAL: Oh, yeah -- definitely. I had made some Jell-O shots; and I noticed that after he went over to the bar, they were all gone.

EASTER: He took all the shots?

O'NEAL: Kobe always takes all the shots.

EASTER: How many do you think he took that night?

O'NEAL: That night, it was probably 30 or 35. It would have been better if he'd only taken 15 or 20 and passed the rest to me, but he just kept forcing the shots -- one after the other after the other after the other. Shot after shot after shot. On and on. It was so like him.


O'NEAL: The Big Prosecution Witness understands, Your Honor.

JUDGE: Seriously, knock it off.


JUDGE: Huh? Whatever. Ms. Easter, please continue with your witness.

U.S. hasn't learned it's lesson from 2002

1. Lithuania

This team was the European champion last summer, and though the Lithuanians have been only so-so in exhibitions this summer, they are a young, deep bunch and they are reaching their peak. They have the best point guard in Europe, former Maryland point man Sarunas Jasikevicius, who is an excellent scorer and shooter. He can also get into the lane, which has been a problem for Team USA's defense and won the MVP of last year's European championship.

outfoxed is a movie about Fox News Channel that will apparently be released to theaters soon

The documentary, which portrays Fox News Channel as far from its motto of "fair and balanced," opens Friday in one art-house theater in each of four cities: New York, Los Angeles, Washington and San Francisco. Then it will expand to other cities in upcoming weeks, distributor Cinema Libre Studios said Tuesday.

The film - the full title of which is "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism" - is composed of clips compiled during weeks of round-the-clock taping of the network. Director Robert Greenwald is trying to demonstrate what he believes is a pattern of right-wing bias and support for the Republican agenda.

Watch the 2 minute trailer.
It's very entertaining.

Fat Activists -- the "fat liberation" movement

NEW YORK (AP) -- Unashamed of their size, fed up with fat jokes, and angry at the national obsession with dieting, overweight activists are mounting a feisty protest movement against what it calls the medical establishment's campaign against obesity.

"We're living in the middle of a witch hunt and fat people are the witches," said Marilyn Wann of San Francisco, a militant member of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance. "It's gotten markedly worse in the last few years because of the propaganda that fatness, a natural human characteristic, is somehow a form of disease.


"I'm George W. Bush, and I approve this message, In fact, I think it's awesome."

Will Ferrell - A message from White House West


Will Ferrell, who made his name on "Saturday Night Live" with his dead-on impersonation of President Bush, has dusted off his caricature for the Web, in the name of political advocacy.

An online video starring the comedian has been spreading through e-mail chains and word of mouth. The video depicts Ferrell, in his familiar salt-and-pepper wig and wearing a furrowed expression, as President Bush during a campaign-commercial shoot on a grassy ranch. The filming keeps going awry when the President flubs lines, misses his cues and freezes in fear when a horse nibbles his elbow.

"I'm George W. Bush, and I approve this message," the voice-over proclaims while Ferrell walks alongside a white fence with a pitchfork over his shoulder. "In fact, I think it's awesome."


"Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?"

I had heard that Chappelle Show might not be coming back because of some salary demands by Dave Chappelle....well guess thats not the case, because he just renewed for $50 million.

The funniest show on TV will return first quarter of next year. Until then watch the DVD or just keep watching tivo'd episodes like me.
