    Caption contest (post-Olympic edition) 2/27/06

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    After winning the Gold Medal in the super mini downhill event at Timber Ridge Ski Hill, Michaelskis questioned if he should take on Tommy Moe or Picabo Street.

    The gold medal was from my ski team winning the beer league at Timber Ridge Ski Hill two years ago
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    Showing incredible poise and restraint, Michaelskis has fought a two year battle to resist the urge peel back the foil and feast on the chocolate of his "gold" medal.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Since slacking is now an Olympic Sport, Michaelskis brings the gold medal home.

    Stan is thankful that Stan is Sure.
    Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

    "Let's see: I measure the height of the grass in that yard and they give me a medal. I can't figure it out either. I wonder what they'd give me I actually did some work around here?"
    Annoyingly insensitive

    Oh, Ca-nada............
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Suffice it to say he was up against formidable competition in the Stan department.

    It's pretty grueling. First, there's coffee drinking freestyle, trash can basketball, FAC posting (both 1 hour and 2 hour events), 100 Meter squirrel chase, 'creative' CDBG low/mod timesheet fillout.
    And that's just in the winter games!
