The McHorror.

Micky-D's has a new advert flogging their Breakfast Burrito. It shows a string of Little-League types swatting the ball a mighty swat, but not with the resounding *CRACK* of a Louisville Slugger. No. They swing, and a tooth-piercing *TINK* signals the connection.

I hate aluminium bats. Postmodern baseball, all rules, no soul.

Depression Glass is back in vogue!

Signs of the times, kiddies. Depression glass was given as a premium during the Great Depression at movie theaters, stores and such. It was a classic loss-leader item to get people into your place, with a something-for-nothing cachet.

McDonald's is re-introducing the concept in the second photo: free Coke glasses as a premium!
They are pretty, stylish, and a sign of our current times.

Drink up!

Well, it's been too long. I am too full of stuff to adequately express it all. The lying liars in Washington who keep saying that "the American Pee-pul DEMAND the health care reforms" are beyond me. The People have resoundingly said "NO!!!" time and again. Tea Parties, letters, emails, phone calls, town hall meetings, all have made it clear that the majority of Americans do not want this legislation, legislation that does not do as advertised. I am angry beyond words at Pelosi's stubborn inability to speak truth. "We want to give this as a Christmas present to the American people" or somesuch. AAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!


On the BPH study front: Wednesday last I received my REAL medicine. Since all indications are that I did in fact receive the real thing throughout the double-blind study, this will be all the more interesting. I got double shots of what we lovingly refer to at home as "Man-No-More Angry Juice", one in each...hip. I have already developed the hair-trigger over the top anger reaction (a legit side-effect). Meh.

A sad thing: my original study supervisor, Dr. Nadine, has shuffled off this mortal coil. She was an awesome doc, who succumbed to liver cancer. I actually caught myself grieving a little. I will miss her.


Ken Rogulski with WJR interviewed several of Detroit's sterling citizens in early October when they were lined up for free cash from the givemint.

Here is one exchange:

KEN ROGULSKI: Why are you here?

WOMAN: To get some money.

ROGULSKI: What kind of money?

WOMAN: Obama money.

ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?

WOMAN: Obama.

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?

WOMAN: I don't know. His stash. I don't know. I don't know where he got it from but he's giving it to us, to help us. We love him. That's why we voted for him. Obama! Obama!

This has firmed my resolve to see us return to the Founders' idea of only landowners being able to vote. Any color of person can own land, so there is no racial issue involved. If we do not do it, the US taxpayer will be enslaved to the voting whims of women like that.

Picture ganked from Toon Tracker

I have discovered The Invisible Man. There was a Sci-Fi cartoon from 1962-64 called Space Angel, which used the very odd Synchro-Vox mouth animation. The main character was voiced by Ned Lefebvre. Who? You know, Ned ...the guy who voiced such memorable characters as...then there was...and we musn't forget.... Yeah, like that.

Then, I tuned into When Radio Was on Wednesday night, and there, on The Whistler
(Originally broadcast: 11/7/1948, Cover Up) was...The Voice! Mr. Lefebvre was an OTR actor. If anyone has heard of any other work he has done, please let me know.

Well, I have found the BEST new diet. I mean, 10 pounds in less than one month. Amazing.
You take three weeks of H1N1, mix well with bronchitis. Get over that, then get bitten by a brown recluse spider on the inner thigh, really high up.

Well, that's my life for the last month.

At least I'm closer to my hot college 'Varkness.
