    I did not last very long. Spasmed slightly with the subwoofers and LOL'ed with the math problem.
    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

    I so expected a Kanye West interruption photoshop.

    The trees photo I have heard has been used as an award.
    Lenin and basketball is good.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    The Lenin-basketball pix was good. The sub-woofer was cute, even to a curmudgen in training like me.

    I was fine until I got to Data and the Blue Screen of Death.

    A couple snickers but no guffaws. Guess my curmudgeon count is elevated today.

    I made it up until I saw the crowd-surfing handicapped guy.

    By the time I made it to "I wish my wife were this dirty" it was over.

    Laughed at the crowd-surfing wheelchair guy, but totally lost it on Chris Hanson/Emma Watson image... pretty clever.

    Guess I won. I didn't laugh, but I did enjoy the pics. Lenin was cool and Hawkin's dissing yo' mama was amusing.

    I giggled inwardly and kept a pretty straight face. Then I saw Dan's Sin-sational protest pic and lost it.
