The media has been showing pictures of Obama's white grandmother nonstop... that can't hurt.

I had a cousin diagnosed with 'environment illness' - basically they couldn't figure out what was wrong with her.

Turned out to be old fashioned cancer - and she died rather quickly - still in her 40's

The Replacements were a great 80s band, but not as good as Sonic Youth. Please post more videos with Kim Gordon in them.

My cat has excellent grammar and punctuation, and I resent the implication that the majority of felines do not.

"I like are coffee, who drink all it?" is NOT proper lolspeak. Boo, hiss. Er, whatever.

The most incredible thing about the NSA spying on soldiers, aid workers, and journalists is that no one saw that coming.

Every time I hear about a Dino attack ad, I think of Fred Flintstone's pet.

The cat's desperate plea for help at the end almost made it worthwhile.

That lady with "environmental illness" would probably be better served with a physical from a reputable doctor and a good shrink.

@1 for the win. But the cat is cute.
