    And then, in 2013, there will be Angelina Jolie's one woman Broadway show, Bad Astronomy: The Opera, where she will play all parts, including playing all the instruments in the orchestra, while she teaches her 27 kids (and Brad) the wonders of the Universe in 17 part harmony.

    The West Dakota House of Lords has passed a bill making it illegal for eagles to steal ribbons.

    I've also lost the kee mao pad for my Thai mouse.

    There are 23.72 minute delays on the Lavender Line and the Number 73 Crosstown Connector because of a dead Ankylosaurid on the express track at 23rd Street. Travellers are adviced to think good thoughts and to make sure they are getting enough vitamin C.

    The last time I looked, I didn't like what I saw.

    Given what I do know about dinosaurs and their droppings it sounds like they're probably actually fairly major delays.

    What I lack in smarts I make up in stupidity.
    I don't think Spoons' new signature is funny in any way and it doesn't remind at all of the quote "Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't stupidity get us out".

    By the way, the un-use of double, triple, or even quadruple negatives to not present an actual fact by not disguising it as an Untrue Fact is absolutely not 100% not allowed in some other thread but not this one. No way.

    "Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't stupidity get us out?"

    Percy B. Funkmire, at the Great Peanut Butter Wrestling Sit-in of 1935, right? What do I win?

    I believe stupidity did prevail, using baby ferrets to lick the peanut butter from the roof of their mouths just in time for the evening-wear presentations.

    BTW - why is it called the roof of one's mouth? Shouldn't it be the ceiling?

    I offer a trade for the original Robin cape from Batman, the tv series. Don't mind the 'dairy' artifacts - that's called value adding.

    Because you observe it from above, like a roof, when you swivel your eyes down and look into the top of your mouth. If your eyes were below your mouth and you looked up, it would be the ceiling.

    By the way, the bottom part, where your tongue sits, isn't called the floor; its called the undercarriage. No one knows why.

    The bottom part of my mouth is called the tongue. However, my chiropractor calls the bottom part of my mouth, "Keep it shut."

    Yeah, those two guys from Apollo 16 ruined everything. Stop at lucky 15, that's what I always say.

    And then, to add insult to injury, they left behind all that stuff that's still on the moon. We leave our trash everywhere. (Remember, this is untrue facts).

    There are some things that make you wonder why? Yo-yos come to mind.

    Because of confusion between the Second Amendment (to the US Constitution) and the Second Law (of thermodynamics), I can no longer travel by air.

    I can still travel by air, but after the witchcraft trials I have to use a plane.

    This is why I had to stop getting you to pick up the pizzas. We're swimming in it... more bbq sauce than reasonable for a leather couch.
