“And we’ll be here all week.”

(A trivial accomplishment, considering that today is the last day for the Word For The Day week.)

IIRC, I saw it at a drive-in back in the mid ‘60s which means I prolly didn’t watch much of it.

Chuck Sheen once said, “Check out my condo
It’s narly, rad, awesome and mondo”
But then came the boozing
The whoring and losing
His rep and career; how despondo!

In recognition of the colossal "success" of the Chevy Volt, I think the next car from GM (Government Motors) should be called the MondoTM.

What is this world coming to when you can’t even get a fish sandwich from the cafeteria on a Friday? Sometime while I was in Brazil the cafe here stopped offering them. Is it some stupid wellness thing?

They better be back for lent.

That’s all we ever had in the cafeteria on Fridays when I was a kid. It’s also why I brown-bagged it.

The fish sandwich is one of the culinary treats of this area. most every tavern and restaurant makes their own hand-breaded. Not a filet-o-fish frozen and formed monstrosity.

Have I told you all that I'm in a little bit in love with Iowahawk? I actually read these numbers last week and wondered why the union thugs were lying...

Obviously you can't compare SAT scores between states - some kids are private or prep school kids, not everyone even takes those tests and you don't know how many kids who never plan to go to college take a stab at it because of pressure from the school..... use national testing to compare and look what you find...

Nice data, but it’s all a red herring isn’t it?

#1, Even if they were the best teachers in the world, there still isn’t enough money for them to tie the local district’s hands through collective bargaining

#2, If they were the best in the world then they should stand on their own merits and not need “collective” anything.

It is just another example of the liberals taking “something” and lying and twisting it to their own means. It sounds terrible that these Southern States have such low scores - when in truth Wisconsin tests lower that the “idiots” in my State.

Hey XS, did you realize you were supporting Charlie Sheen when you look at his tweets? He gets paid for every single tweet he makes based on the number of followers he has..... sheesh

Paid by whom?

Sean Hannity said on the radio yesterday that he and Sheen were text messaging. I guess he sent Sheen a message and never expected a response, but he got one.

Apparently there is some agreement with advertisers - depending on the number of folks he has following him, if he holds up Starbucks he gets paid - yesterday he showed Direct TV on his screen..... cash. On the news last night they said Kim kardashian gets $10K per tweet!

I can’t believe anybody makes any money on internet advertising. Maybe for hulu, where they make you watch ads. That makes sense. But just for banners and pop ups and celebrity pos mens?

Cleared for light skating..FOR TWO OR THREE weeks.

Almost too late to do any good.

Should be a nice couple weeks, I have tix for most of the month (Penguins, Caps, Thrashers,Sens,Isles x2)

I was hoping the Islanders would have been a little better to make those games ultra competitive in trying to reach the 8 spot.

The Isles losing at the end of the Caps game after dominating for 59 minutes the other night was irksome.

Ovechkin’s play in OT was one of those plays only he makes, and you just tip your hat and move on, but the defenseman drifting away from the net toward the puck, leaving Laich in front unmolested with 45 secs left should have resulted in a severe beating !

Soothing Dave, Hobbes found one of your sheep wandering around and sent it back. Maybe you can send Hobbes a gift back in return.

Twitter is the only aspect of popular culture that I participate in, I feel no guilt whatsoever. I follow a few conservatives, the Caps, a variety of hockey blogs and charlie sheen. LOL
