How disbarred is he?

Filed under: Uncategorized — megs @ 12:57 pm

Lawyer Jack Thompson, who generally grasps what I consider to be the stupid end of the stick in the debate on video game censorship, has finally been disbarred for all his frivolous legal shenanigans.

Then someone posted this comment to Twitter:

Jack Thompson is so disbarred, he’s not even allowed to approach the bench at a picnic table.”

There was much follow up.

Thanks, Jaques, for sending me the link.

On being neighborly

Filed under: Uncategorized — megs @ 9:13 am

Dear Inconsiderate Douchenozzle Who Lives on My Block:

Please be advised – when your smoke detector emits a high-pitched chirp once every few minutes, it means that said detector needs a new battery. One way to cause this chirping noise to cease is to replace the battery immediately. Another way, if you don’t have a new battery, is to simply pull the old one out. In the future, please be tactful enough to take one of these two courses of action BEFORE going to sleep with your windows open, thus allowing everyone in the vicinity to experience said chirp at semi-regular intervals between 12AM and dawn.

Sincerely,
Your Sleep Deprived Neighbor

PS:

Please tell your friend, the Jackass Who Honks Twenty Times from His Car Instead of Calling or Using the Door Buzzer When He Comes to Pick People Up, that no matter what time of day or night he swings by to collect his passenger, he is bothering SOMEBODY with his idiot noise. If he keeps it up, Emily Post’s politely unstoppable zombie will rise from the grave, hunt him down, and eat his brain using the proper fork and an immaculately pressed linen napkin.  Cheers!

Pirates + Harry Potter = ?

Avast! It be “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” ya lubbers! And, ahoy, it also be the canonical birthday o’ one Hermione Granger. Grab yer grog and dance a jig, ’cause the internet wrote a song in her honor. Yarrr.

Hermione Granger, the Pirate Queen, the Pride of Gryffindor!

Target Women

Huh.  I really thought I had more Les Misérables fans in this audience that would dig the Obama video.  Ah well.  Now for something completely different: a series of (in my opinion, hilarious) segments that analyze how women are marketed to by various products/companies/interests.

Yes, the last one takes a political side (“Suffrage” slams both parties evenly).  But all of them are funny.  Please enjoy.

And now, a brief musical interlude

Say what you will about Obama staffers – they have great taste in music.



Also, I got my score back from the state exam I took over the summer – I totally kicked butt!
