Bloviating Zeppelin: Letterman's Top 10

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

ROTFALMAO! I needed to laugh, BZ. Thanks! I just finished drafting a very depressing post. It's not up yet, but after drafting that, I truly needed a good laugh.... and a drink!

I'll get my own drink though... you don't have to mail it! ;)

Gayle: don't think I'M not hitting the Fosters after this week and the fact that I've melted three pairs of tennis shoes on the pavement!

Rebecca and LMC: I don't know about you guys, but I find myself needing some more refreshing humor with more regularity these days, hence my little silly occasional posts. The world is getting nutty and frightening. I'm not giving up, we're not giving up, but a pause for perspective is definitely required.

That's what makes humor funny -- its sometimes-shocking verisimilitude.

And there is the utility factor with the NYT! Cheaper than papertowels for cleaning windows... excellent fish wrapper... perfect for canary cages... and always handy for painting rooms and more resistant than a dropcloth.

The real content: pulped wood!
