NFL DRAFT UPDATE

ESPN is now in its 17th straight hour of coverage of the NFL draft, which is about to actually start, and everyone is very, very excited because instead of 15 minutes between picks, there will be -- prepare to feel a chill go down your spine -- only 10 minutes between picks. Talk about your high-voltage drama! I'm going to take a nap.

Update: For $24.99, you can buy an Official NFL Draft Hat. And this increasingly classic item is still available.

Update: I frankly don't think ESPN has enough people covering this historic event. There are barely six dozen of them.

THOSE TERRORIST BASTARDS

Now they're using smelly checks.

THOSE TERRORIST BASTARDS

Now they're attacking our Mexican restaurants using thick clouds of bees in a tornado pattern, which would of course be an excellent name for a rock band.

WE HAVE NEVER FELT SO HONORED

Dear Mr.Barry,

Please visit the Low-Flow Toilet Awareness Project (LFTAP) for details regarding National Low-Flow Toilet Blowup Day, this Sunday, 4/27.

We have a low-flow toilet with your name written on it, Dave. The commode will be detonated, just for you.

"At 1pm on Sunday, April 27, over 100 shooters will gather at Boomershoot, an annual guns and explosives event held in North Central Idaho. Shooters will unite in therapeutic self expression, taking their toilet annoyances out of the bathroom and onto the range. They'll shoot at a low-flow toilet filled with reactive targets, creating fiery explosions, reducing the porcelain target into smithereens."

Copyright-free photos + image of the event will be available online (Sun. night). I'll send you a link to the thrilling images.

Warm regards,
Joe Huffman
On behalf of LFTAP + Boomershoot

FASCISM CONTINUES CREEPING

As this blog courageously reported back in January despite the very real threat of winning a major journalism award, lawmakers in Virginia have been trying to take away a man's fundamental human right to put testicles on his trailer hitch. Now this scourge has spread to the Florida legislature, which apparently has run out of other problems to concern itself with.

CRICKET UPDATE

In this fascinating story, we learn that:
-- Cricket has cheerleaders;
-- Some of them are from Uzbekistan;
-- One of the Uzbekistani ones is named "Tabitha";
-- They have, quote, "bulging breasts and gyrating bellies";
-- This is highly controversial in India.

(Thanks to sjhaller)

WE KNOW THIS HAS BEEN BLOGGED BEFORE

But it's apparently a totally new panic.

Key Quote: Rumors of penis theft began circulating last week in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo's sprawling capital of some 8 million inhabitants. They quickly dominated radio call-in shows, with listeners advised to beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings.
