Meanwhile in Minnesota…

It’s been snowing all night. So the morning goes like this; 8:00 I made a snowman. 8:10 A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn’t make a snow woman. 8:15 So, I made a snow woman. 8:17 The nanny of the neighbors complained about the snow woman’s voluptuous chest. 8:20 The gay couple …

Shrine in Japan

Some of the great beauties in Japan are the shrines and temples. Here is a shrine seen at Enoshima, Japan. I like the way you go through the doorway up the path to the shrine or temple. This is kind of gives the effect of walking on the path to enlightenment.

Equipment Graveyard in Afghanistan

Can you guess what kind of equipment this is?

Nancy Pelosi at the State of the Union Address

What was it that was stuck in Nancy Pelosi’s teeth during the State of the Union address? Was it a piece of chicken? Maybe a piece of spinach? Maybe she’s practicing tying a cheery stem with her tongue? Perhaps a piece of popcorn? Whatever it was she spent a great deal of time during the …

Washington D.C. Ticket Agent

Please say some stupid things and a Washington D.C. Ticket Agent shares some of the things they have heard. 1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!) 2. I got a call from …

California Countryside

Some people say that California is a beautiful state. Apparently they haven’t been anywhere else. Southern California is dry desert that has been sun baked. If you think desert is beautiful, then this is the right place for you. Things don’t really start getting green until you are near San Francisco heading north. If you …
