Line of the Day

A conversation about why TXB ain't at the bowling alley on league night:

Mary Ann: "Maybe he forgot."
G-Money: "You don't forget about bowling."

In truth, I had forgotten. The world just doesn't make sense anymore.

Yes We Can...Profit Off the Phrase "Yes We Can"

Many commentators have pointed out that at least one sector of the economy hath recovered under Obama: the cheap collectible crap market. Just slap BHO's name and likeness on something, and apparently it will see like hot cakes (if hot cakes were, in fact, something that people still purchased with undeniable fervor). I saw at the comic book shop the other day that the Spider-Man issue guest starring our new prez wuz already sold out. But my favorite example of Barackploitation is the Obama condom--an actual product with the catch phrase, "Remember the election with your next erection." Aw yeah...the honor and dignity of the White House hath been restored, y'all!

Here's the lists. Oh, and Rick wins the Rod "Peter Bogdanovich" Blagojevic contest. Not because "Jog-ojovich" wuz the best, but because I'm counting on him to become governor of his home state one day and appoint me as state senator when America inevitably elects another douche bag from Texas. Expect a package, Rickster. Oh, and thanx to DVDs, I saw 93 of the movies released in 2008. I'm seeing a doctor later this week about possible side effects...
