Hopping through the rain forest Escaping the fire like all the rest Trying to keep my species alive Looking for lilies and tasty flies My legs are pumping as fast as they need to My legs are drying as quick as glue I’m looking for someone of my kind I am a frog and I have a mind
“For example, I think that we should try to do everything we can to allow for people with disabilities and handicaps. You know, we do it in our office with wheelchair ramps and things like that. I think if you have a two-story office and you hire someone who’s handicapped, it might be reasonable to let him have an office on the first floor rather than the government saying you have to have a $100,000 elevator. And I think when you get to the solutions like that, the more local the better, and the more common sense the decisions are, rather than having a federal government make those decisions.”—
Suitep sent me this and I almost peed my pants laughing. You must read the whole thing, but here are some highlights—
“To be polite, they’d douse them with a quart of ketchup or Cholula or Frank’s Red Hot or Tabasco or fresh cat piss, choke them down, and remind themselves never to eat anything I cooked again. You could even put my eggs in front of a starving animal and it’d smell them, look at you with wide, forlorn eyes, and slumber outside to die instead.”
“Throw in a tiny pat of butter, preferably unsalted. The idea is to keep salt out of the mix for as long as possible, because salt sends microscopic sodium vikings into the uncooked egg villages to rape the women and sell the children to the gypsies.”
“Turn the heat on medium. If you’re using an old electric stove, good fucking luck, because those things are as adjustable as stone pants.”
Reblogging to keep on my radar. I swear I’m going to adjust my stone pants and try to make these and see if they’re as good as they claim. Gordon Ramsey’s making them here.
PENNSYLVANIA (KGO) — A Pennsylvania family has a very good reason to let their 8-year-old son watch as much TV as he wants. What he learned by watching the tube may have saved his little sister’s life.
The family says while on vacation a man grabbed Nathan Kuhn’s 4-year-old sister and tried to pull her into his car. That’s when Nathan attacked.
First he grabbed his sister’s arm and pulled her away from the man, and then he turned back around and kicked and scratched him.
When police began questioning Nathan, he calmly explained that he had the suspect’s DNA under his fingernails. When asked how he knew about DNA, Nathan explained he learned by watching NCIS on TV.
My morning radio show host is a bit of a John Mayer fanboy.
I was driving into work this morning, listening to my usual station, 103.7 The Mountain, and right after a John Mayer song ended the DJs were talking about how he’d just disappeared, bemoaning the fact he was no longer on Twitter. And that he wasn’t anywhere, really. He’d given up on social networking.
While part of me wondered how they could be so out of touch, the other part called to tip them off. I got in on their studio line and actually got through to the morning host and told him that Mayer was on Tumblr now, looking for more ‘intelligent discourse’. Although I don’t think you can find that here. The host was really excited and thrilled that I called in with the tip. He even had his own Tumblr account, which he hasn’t used. Seattle radio, get with the program.
