Who knew that a government shutdown would stimulate SMOD? Maybe Washington DC should never reopen. [Mis. Hum.]
What Does "Coin a Phrase" Mean, Exactly?
I've never been sure if it meant say for the first time (as to strike a new coin) or to pass an old phrase (like to spread a previously-used coin). It turns out it originally meant the former, but people are more and more using it as in the second meaning, to just spread an old, well-worn saying. So I guess my confusion was justified.
The first meaning makes a lot more sense than the latter, but the phrase seems to be going through a "literally"-style transition, shifting meaning to almost its complete opposite meaning.
I think I just will continue not saying it because it's stupid anyway.
Uh oh. Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor Treated by Paramedics for Low Blood Sugar. She's evidently better and back to work. Get her two scoops of Vermont Commie Crunch, a Big Mac and a 12-pack of Diet Coke, stat! [J.J. Sefton]
Not Sure This is Worth a Link, But Here Are Some "Fun" Mission Patches Shot Down by Bureaucrats

Next time you see the Honorable (**SPIT**) Lindsey Graham ask him what the difference is between a hell hole and a shit hole. Thanks, I knew you would. [Mis. Hum.]
Convicted traitor and certifiable mental patient Bradley Manning files paperwork to challenge run-of-the-mill goniff Ben Cardin for Maryland Senate Seat. Considering the state of the nation, and considering it's Maryland, I'd say new-age Corporal Maxwell Klinger has a shot. Then again, Democrat National Committee. [J.J. Sefton]
Damn! We should all be dead by now. Republicans and mass killings. [Mis. Hum.]
It’s the Palestinians’ fault there is no peace with Israel, US ambassador says in wake of terror attack
“An Israeli father of six was killed last night in cold blood by Palestinian terrorists. Hamas praises the killers and PA laws will provide them financial rewards. Look no further to why there is no peace,” [CBD]
Wait, I Need My Toilet and Plumbing to be Internet-Connected Now, Too?
This is dumb. This is becoming a Jetsons-style sight gag where things that are easily done by hand are done by robots just because.
