November 24, 2010 - Getting Loco in SoKo and NoKo

korean tensions
Really Short Story: North Korea's acting a little nutty…same old, same old.
Short Story: To help explain the current situation, let's think of North Korea as the crazy kid in your high school class that spends most of his time reading comic books or drawing elaborate pictures in the back of the classroom, but every now and then, he forgets to take his ADD medication, and spills his Mountain Dew all over your you and your homework...and he just might have done it on purpose. You want to retaliate, but everyone knows that there is something wrong with this kid. You really don't want to mess with him too much, because it is generally frowned upon, it won't do any good and he just might be crazy enough to...well, who knows what he will do. That should explain what's going on in Korea right now, and it seems like it has been going on for some time, and there is probably no end in sight...unless someone can figure out what exactly we should do with this crazy little bastard.

November 24, 2010: zachary taylor Day! - Died of overconsumption of cherries and milk.
WHY?: Zach Taylor was the 12th President of the United States. If you didn't know that, you aren't alone. He falls in that confusing range between Andrew Jackson at 7 and Abraham Lincoln at 16. He had a real cool nickname, "Old Rough and Ready," which hopefully had something to do with his forty year career in the military or his personal appearance, and not his personal life. He was the last United States President to hold slaves, and also the last Whig to win the election, both of which are good things. His death, after 16 months in office, also gave us the coolest President name of all-time when his Vice President Millard Fillmore stepped in for him. However, the best story of Zach Taylor might be that of his death. Apparently, he became very hot one July day during the groundbreaking for the Washington Monumnet, and decided to consume massive amounts of milk and cherries in order to cool himself. Unfortunately, this strategy failed, and he died just 5 days later of gastroenteritis. If that's not a cool old-school President story, I don't know what is.

TOMORROW'S contenders:
joe dimaggio - Where have you gone, Joe Dimaggio? Oh, he died? When?
the bush twin daughters - Jenna Bush and the 2nd-hottest living person named Barbara Bush.
donovan mcnabb - I will never get those Campbell's soup commercials starring his mom out of my head.

When did just yelling "Get some glasses, ref!" go out of style?
kid plays songs on pvc pipe
To be honest, I couldn't tell what he was playing half of the time, but it's still pretty cool.
rat attacks cats
Reason #1381 not to move to Russia: the rats attack the cats. That can't be a good sign.

You know you are seeing something crazy when the neck tattoos overshadow a haircut like this.
most awkward td celebration ever?
White QB's may get all the glory, so maybe they should just stay out of the touchdown celebrations?
