Oh, and I saw LLAMAS! They were cute and fuzzy and vaguely sheep-like until they stood up and I went "omg llama!" *is a geek*

ultra_lilac is complaining about boring American money:

Where's the holographic picture of the Glorious Leader? Where's all the interesting spangly bits down the middle, what price the ghostly head that only appears when held up to the sun? WHERE IS THE LOVE, PEOPLE?
I've seen disney videos with more authenticity! Well I tell you now, this just won't cut it Americans.
In Europe we like our money to be an interactive experience. The 10 Euro note for instance comes with a pop-out dress your own pope on one side, and on the other a picture of the Queen in a bikini, which floats off when you tip it to the side.

mrstroppy in his post here:

You know what's hot? The weather. I could boil an egg on my face. Of course, I don't need to, I have a frying pan for that, and besides I don't really like eggs. And actually, it'd probably get in my eyes and hurt, or that yolk would run down to my ears, get into my brain and kill me.

My first meta-metaquote.

kestrel127 in this post with a take on the phrase "gay agenda":

Dude! That means I can get a day planner and it can be the pagan agenda! Take that, Jerry Falwell!

The irony, Mr. Falwell, is that pagans are so subdivided, spacey and snipey that we can't even agree on a meeting time, much less an agenda.

My first metaquote, aka how mouse42 got me to shoot milk out my nose in a friends-locked post:

Also, here's a question for the 'Trekker's on my list....

Would a half-Cardassian/half-Bajoran be known as a Bacardi?

Laura's got street cred!

freedomfry recaps the State of the Union address.

BUSH: We should make sure that embryos are never grown in farms and used to make arms and legs and stuff like you’ve seen on the Sci-Fi channel because as everyone knows, first comes the immoral scientists and then comes the aliens and soon we’re all pledging allegiance to some green-skinned freak that only pretends to be human.

CHENEY: *looks uncomfortable*

and

Anyway. I propose a three-year initiative tonight that would work to keep young men out of jails, headed by someone who really understands what it’s like to be a black man growing up in the inner cities: my wife, Laura Bush.

Political

Metametallamallama-- crap, I'm stuck now


Personally, I think [the USA] ought to turn money-designing responsibility over to a committee consisting of Elton John, a small collection of Japanese rock stars, and several elected drag queen representatives. If we're going to redesign American money to make it more interesting, we should just run with it. Screw this "Look! We used two colors of green!" thing, the American people want neon pink, sequins, and feathers!

When I heard Bush appointing his wife to the job of dealing with the problems facing inner city youths I tossed out the drinking game and just started mainlining heroin.

2001: A Space Telephone

My housemate, dorothywwom talks about her day working at the public library here.

They have an automated calling system, playfully called 'Vince'.

"It seems that Vince the automated telephoner, who's only supposed to call people about holds, has started calling people about overdues. Repeatedly. Apparently some people are getting upset. (I guess no one thought to point out that if they just RETURNED the stuff, Vince would stop calling them. That might upset them more.) I didn't think it was such a big deal. I refuse to worry until Vince starts singing, "Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do..." "

LJDQ Compels You!

Every Friday on ljdq, they post selected responses to that week's quiz--right, wrong, more wrong and just funny. Here's the one that made me laugh so hard I annoyed my boyfriend:

4. Name the actress and the movie:
"Start the car, I know a whoopie spot
Where the gin is cold and the pianos hot.
It's just a noisy hall
Where there's a nightly brawl
And all that Jazz."


Since the theme of this week seems to be the Greek alphabet, I'm going to have to go with Delta Burke in the film 'Pi Me a River'.

The Classics Updated, 1 to 3

splodgenoj has embarked on a project to bring the classics up to date. Here are the first three:

1) Waiting for Godot
ESTRAGON: Let's go.
VLADIMIR: We can't.
ESTRAGON: Why not?
VLADIMIR: We're waiting for Godot.
ESTRAGON: (despairingly). Ah! (Pause.) Why don't we just text him?

2) St Matthew's Gospel - Jesus betrayed
While Jesus was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the elders of the people. Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him." Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed him.

Peter said: "::slashes you two!!!:: omg!!!"

Jesus said: "Shut up."

3) Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd;
I think he's a bit overqualified.

(When asked if I could send these as my first Metaquote, he responded:

"OK, but they must not be used to fund terrorist activities. St Matthew, Samuel Beckett, and King David made them up; I merely brought them up to date.

"Also, I hope there will be cake tomorrow and not just Angel fucking Delight.")
