Can you pass this witty and different observation test put out by the Brits?
In response the the Georgia Legislature believing it prudent to move Georgia’s northern border into Tennessee, the Mayor of Chattanooga issued the following proclamation:
WHEREAS, it has come to pass that the heavens are shut up and a drought of Biblical proportions has been visited upon the Southern United States, and
WHEREAS, the parched and dry conditions have weighed heavily upon the State of Georgia and sorely afflicted those who inhabit the Great City of Atlanta, and
WHEREAS, the leaders of Georgia have assembled like the Children of Israel in the desert, grumbled among themselves and have begun to cast longing eyes toward the north, coveting their neighbor’s assets, and
WHEREAS, the lack of water has led some misguided souls to seek more potent refreshment or for other reasons has resulted in irrational and outrageous actions seeking to move a long established and peaceful boundary, and
WHEREAS, it is deemed better to light a candle than curse the darkness, and better to offer a cool, wet kiss of friendship rather than face a hot and angry legislator gone mad from thirst, and
Whereas, it is feared that if today they come for our river, tomorrow they might come for our Jack Daniels or George Dickel,
NOW THEREFORE, In the interest of brotherly love, peace, friendship, mutual prosperity, citywide self promotion, political grandstanding and all that
I Ron Littlefield, Mayor of the City of Chattanooga, Tennessee,
Do hereby Proclaim that Wednesday, February 27, 2008 shall be known as
“Give Our Georgia Friends a Drink Day” (Chattanoogan.com)
This country would be better off if we had a few more leaders with the balls to call out political tomfoolery with the right amount of sarcasm.
Ah Vegas, always something going on. On a trip to see the versatile Billy Joel we ran in my boy, Anthony Anderson. He was there doing a poker tournament for BET. Nelly and that guy from ER attended as well. It should air early 08.
While we were there Planet Hollywood christened it’s new casino with all the PH A listers attending. We didn’t have a chance to see Bruce and others due to the concert, but we did get a chance to meet Wyland at his gallery shortly before the show. Wyland of course is the big name in oceanic art (you know someone’s big when they only need one name ;). Look for his next big piece will be a huge mural for the Olympic Games in China.
While Vegas is fun, the time share people are getting a little pushy. My next visit, I’m planning on wearing a custom T that says “No, I don’t want you damn time share!”. We’ll have to wait and see how effective that is…
UPDATE: oops this accidentally got posted under Nov 08 instead of 07… I wondered why it wasn’t showing up…
Found this at NeuralGraffiti.com.Â The interview is hysterical, because Jon just won’t let it go… I have said this before but I love that Stewart while is a Dem and a Lib, he will still call people out when they go off the cliff.
The forced laugh from Matthews seem Hillary-esk.Â The crux of it shows up when Jon tries to point out that the book favors winning over doing the right thing – Matthews corrects that winning IS the right thing to do.
