What does prozac have to do with al franken?

When I lived in South Florida, Baby Jesus thefts were common. I think it was because of a segment of fundies who object to the dolls for religions reasons. It's not a Grinch, it's just another variety of nut.

Caucus co-eds are easy.

Re: Man's wedding ring saves his life

Marriage really is good for you:

"JACKSON, Miss. - Donnie Register has a new reason to be thankful he's married police say his wedding band deflected a bullet and probably saved his life.

Two men walked into Register's shop at The Antique Market on Saturday and asked to see a coin collection, police Sgt. Jeffery Scott said.

When Register retrieved the collection, one of the men pulled a gun and demanded money. A shot was fired as Register threw up his left hand, and his wedding ring deflected the bullet, police said."

That's an incredible event--what are the odds? But you just know how his wife is gonna feel about this astonishing situation. Wait for it...

"She said she gives God all the credit."

God can give you the POWER to deflect bullets like Wonder Woman; who knew? Now where's my invisible jet?;_ylt=Ap3tPG_lOpZ_XXBQt8TSB3Ws0NUE

God can do everything, Original Andrew. Everything but exist.

I hate religous people, I really really hate them. Sorry if I pissed anyone off but you do not have a right to your feelings.

I think the two 18 yr old girls in the caucusing video are dating each other.

Sanctuary Mansion would make a great name for a band.

But it would only work for a Metal band. If any pussy pop band takes the name, I'll sue.

Also, I love it when people steal Baby Jesuses. What if it were the same peron everytime and he had some enormous stash somewhere.

I just had another band name idea: Stolen Jesus. Same rules apply to this one as for Sanctuary Mansion.

Would be more realistic if they had a statue of a priest molesting the bady Jesus. MUCH more realistic. And a muslim taking a sword to Mary.

I don't understand why a few states get to determine who the nation votes for. In this day of instant information transfer why can't we all have the same history making option?

Seriously, what does prozac have to do with Al Franken?

Posted by idaho | December 5, 2007 9:21 AM

I'd like to follow up on discussion of yesterday's "Liquid Misery" headline in the P-I to point out the two BIG BOLD FONT headlines in today's dailies: "Deep Trouble" and "Swallowed Up." Okay, so any guesses which pr0n flick will end up as a headline next?

Lying is not the same thing as getting it wrong.

Posted by Trevor | December 5, 2007 9:26 AM

Mr. Poe @ 5,

Of course I exist.

Just Me @ 6,

In My infinite wisdom, I've decided that bullet deflecting jewelry isn't just for Amazons and power lesbians anymore.

And don't be a hater. Just because you may not agree with some of my followers doesn't mean that you can't knock boots or at least have a somewhat satisfying grudge fuck. Make love, y'all.

@ "god"

I am calling you out bitch!! Come and get me if you have the BALLS!!! Yeah, come and get me! Are you scared? Is the almighty SCRARED of me???

That's what I thought, you do not exist. You puss filled infected imaginary illusion.
