Overheard in the Office

…as a tray of homemade Rice Krispie treats are offered: “Fair warning: I haven’t had one of these since I was about eight years old, when I ate a whole bunch and threw up on the trampoline.”

Coincidentally, just emailed around the office:

Cute video, but my god, boxers are stupid dogs.

Dogs should only barf rainbows.

Speaking of trampolines...HOW ABOUT THAT 1000 POINT MARKET BOUNCE!

Yes, the McCain Recovery is underway...get a barf bag for Obamaphiles, who can't stand a roller coaster ride!

John have you lost your mind?
This market reaction comes because the leading nations of the world got together for coordinated action involving government buying of stakes in banks everywhere -- totalrepudiation fo the free 'n' wild markets you espouse.

This makes yoru whole philosophy crumble into shards. We DO NEED the government to be the big dawg controlling the market, not just setting the rules but now OWNING the major fiannce entitities.
Next step Obama victory. An Obama Treasury sec. who will actuallly buy parts of the biggest banks. Then we'll start having more control. then we'll see more income redistribution and govt.-guided infrascturure and r and d and nationalized health care.

Oh you will also see higher returns for the NASDAQ and D Jones the way always happens under a Democratic president, you doofus.

Thank god the British Labour party showed the way, as Krugman points out.

Your post is a mind's really the Gordon Brown bounce....

Bullshit. I just waited 68 seconds and didn't get to see a dog puke on a tramp? I was all set up for it. I only believed in the dog puke more when he would stop, try to dig, and generally looked "primed."

I believed to the last second that as she pulled in close that the camera would end with projectile spray. nothing.

I love the play-bow toward the end. Trampoline is a surprisingly effective form of dog exercise!

Very cute, but if I lived next door and that dog barked incessantly as it does here, I'd have Old Man Blethen down there at the fenceline before you could say "trampoline."

Speaking of trampolines...HOW ABOUT THAT 1000 POINT MARKET BOUNCE! Thank you Barak.

Yes, the Obama Recovery is underway. Get a Geritol, shot gun, and Bible for the McCainophiles, who can't stand a roller coaster ride!

This dog naturally doesn't realize the only real fun in a trampoline is in the art of the double-bounce. Get a couple of border collies on there, they'll figure it out.

The only thing any of us are actually wondering: who barfed on the trampoline?

The doogies is no doubt presenting his take on the McCain campaign via interpretive danse.
I'm jumping, I'm jumping, look at me, I'm jumping.
Ooh, attack, attack, attack.
Why am I attacking, lick it, lickt good.
No attack.
No lick it.
Hey, no, look at me.
I'm jumping. I'm jumping
