Adventures in Free Speech with Borat

CAUTION: link contains pictures of mostly bare man ass.

While I'm not a huge fan of Ali G, I find the continuing adventures of his most inflammatory alter-ego, Borat very interesting on a socio-political level. It amazes and entertains me to no end that the government of Kazakhstan has time and money to spend on a full out PR campaign and a trip to meet with the president of the United States to discuss the effect a comedian has on their image.

What does not entertain me is that our president is taking time and money to meet with the Kazakhs on this issue instead of telling them to grow a sense of humor. Shouldn't our president be a little more worried about the people dying in Afghanistan and Iraq, terrorism (separate issues, kids) or maybe reducing the national debt instead of increasing it more than any president ever?

Your Friday Moment of Zen

Straightest. Weatherman. Ever.

P.S. My sister sent me another great moment of zen, but it's really, really silly and absolutely FULL of profanity. If that sounds like your cup of tea, get in touch and I'll fire it to you.

More News I Couldn't Possibly Make Up...

...and more evidence our president is, himself, "intellectually disabled." I mean, I guess interacting with American Idol fans has given Clay Aiken some experience with the intellectually challenged.

Personal Notes

I've been telling several (okay both) of my loyal readers I'd post pictures of my training setup in the garage. It's all dialed in and working nicely now. I've just been too busy to take the fifty foot walk from the office to the garage to take the pictures. No, I'm not kidding. I'll get it done this weekend.

I've done a couple of full workouts. Starting with 3-4 rounds of 3 minutes apiece with three minute rests. My goal is 3-4 10 minute rounds with three minute rests. Fat will probably run off my food in fear or burst into flames in my mouth at that point.

It's incredible what a workout it is to punch a punching bag with everything you have for three minutes at a time. When I'm done my arms don't really like to be lifted above my waist so much.

My diet did take a shot to the crotch at lunch today. I was tired and grouchy this morning because Trotsky has been keeping us up at night and didn't pack a lunch. I'm way busier than I thought and only have thirty minutes so I ate out of the vending machine. Snyder's of Hannover sourdough pretzels and peanut M&M's. The lunch of champions.

Well, that's about all I have to complain about. Have a good weekend folks.

EHHH! Scary!

I hope God is on your side, dude, 'cause I sure as hell wouldn't mess with Stewart and Colbert!

Sorry I've been gone for so long. I'm back, don't worry.
