Sometimes I have little ideas that don’t amount to a whole post on their own. I like to save them up and present them all at once so you all can be bothered by the same passel of half-baked ideas that plague me. You’re welcome!
If “our grandchildren” can’t afford to pay for PBS because doing so will increase the deficit so much, how can they afford to pay for a no fly zone over Libya?
Whatever happened to those Cadbury ads with the clucking bunny? Those were so great.
What kind of name is Caillou?
Does anyone ever watch Toddlers and Tiaras and think “Yes! I’m going to sign my kid up for one of those pageants right now because they look awesome!”? Or does everyone watch it to feel better about their own parenting?
There is a lot of talk about how our nation used to rank much higher globally in education. If we want to regain that standing, why don’t we look at education policy and programs from that period and recreate them? If they worked then, why won’t they work now?
Do you think they’ll ever make a Real Housewives of Tulsa?
My sister has been a member of teacher’s unions in two different states and, as such, paid into only the state teacher’s pension fund. That exempted her from Social Security taxes. I don’t think she ever had a 401(k) plan through her employers. If that’s true of most state employee union agreements then all the state employee unions who are trying to preserve their pensions right now are doing it because the pension is likely their only source of retirement savings. Why isn’t the media explaining that?
I think scientists need to get to work on inventing a basketball shoe that doesn’t make an awful squeaking noise when it rubs on the floor of the court. That noise is a primary reason that I don’t like basketball.
How do you think Charlie Sheen’s mother feels about all the jokes at his expense right now?
If there was a higher being who controlled everything and wanted us all to be the same religion, how come we’re not all automatically the same religion?
Don’t you think it’s kind of awesome that the 18th Amendment establishment Prohibition but the 21st Amendment repealed it? Its like college: at 18 you aren’t allowed to drink but do it anyway and then at 21 it’s finally legal.
I wouldn’t be sad if men started shaving their armpits.
I know lots of people worry about “their” tax dollars funding abortions but those same people don’t seem to be as upset about the fact their insurance premium dollars pay for abortions, given that most insurers cover abortion.
Who put the ram in the ram-a-lam-a-ding-dong?
