New Hallmark card?
  • It's getting hot in herre, so take off, all you Saudis! The NY Times confirms that the FBI arranged chartered flights for dozens of Saudi nationals, including relatives of Osama bin Laden, shortly after the 9/11 attacks. Can we start talking impeachment now? Michael Moore has been right all this time.

  • Try explaining the logic of this one: in a major policy shift, the Bush Administration has decided to reward Pakistan for its help in our "war on terrorism" by agreeing to sell them two dozen F-16 warplanes, sales of which were previously banned by Bush's father. And gee, by pure coincidence, Lockheed Martin Corp. recently announced that it needs new orders for their F-16 jets or it will have to close down its factory.

  • Would you quit music forever if 500 people puked during or right after your band's concert? The Charlatans UK performed at Aberdeen's Music Hall in the UK to a crowd of about 1,500 people. According to the Guardian, "germs from the vomit on the hall steps were carried into the venue in the rush of gig-goers and redistributed by the Music Hall's air-conditioning system." This led to a third of concertgoers contracting Winter Vomiting Disease and immediately re-creating the Barf-A-Rama scene from the movie Stand By Me.

  • Speaking of puking, here's some news from the BK Lounge. If you didn't get your share of eggs for Easter, Burger King debuted its Enormous Omelet Sandwich, which packs in enough eggs, meat and processed cheese to deliver 730 calories and 47 grams of fat, which is 30 calories and 5 grams more than a Whopper. So much for the healthy trend in fast food restaurants. Remember when Humpty Hump once said:

  • Look at me -- I'm skinny.
    It never stopped me from gettin' busy.
    I'm a freak. I like the girls with the boom.
    I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom.

    One wonders whether Humpty would still be skinny after ingesting a few of these enormous breakfast entrees. Yeah, Humpty, I called ya fat.

  • More Easter news: I hate you Easter Bunny! I said I wanted chocolate eggs and not those nasty f?@#ing Peeps s%#t!

  • Not a joke: Order this handy and innovative device from that blocks out Fox News from your cable.
