Of all the bizarre subsidiaries that big companies can find themselves with, Harmony Agricultural Products, founded and owned by Honda Motor, is one of the strangest. This small company near Marysville, Ohio produces soybeans for tofu. Soybeans? Honda couldn't brook the sight of the shipping containers that brought parts from Japan to its nearby auto factories returning empty. So Harmony now ships 33,000 pounds of soybeans to Japan. An inveterate tinkerer, Honda also set up a center nearby to develop better soybean varieties and improve agricultural processes.No wonder the government has to bail out the automakers, there's no way that any American company could come up with an idea like that.
Not a "Mandate"
Not a "Mandate"
This, Mr. Bush, is what those of us who live in "reality" call a "Mandate"
...Jesus is a recurring character, because FCC rules stipulate you cannot use "Jesus Christ" as an exclamation unless the deity himself is present...Aside from being out right funny, it explains a couple times where Peter has said things like "Jesus Christ" and then after a pause the camera angle has turned and Jesus has been in the scene.
30 percent of American adults think George Bush is a good President, but apparently they're the smart ones
"This is a formal COMPLAINT against everyone else who's submitting you this copy/pasted complaint. These people need to stop trying to control what everyone else is allowed to see on TV and start controlling what they let their own kids watch. Maybe if their kids weren't home schooled they would have been on a bus to school when this horrible word was aired. Maybe kids shouldn't watch the Today show and should be watching cartoons instead. Maybe they should realize their kid has probably heard them say "bad" words more than they've heard them on TV. Either way ignore these idiots, they represent an extremely small, extremely niche, extremely vocal minority. They need to stop worrying about everyone else's lives and start worrying about their own."
"Documentation of the perfectly acceptable material is provided below. Should they have bleeped it? Yes, does every kid already know exactly what someone said when the hear s**t on TV? Yes."
PS: Try as I might to link to my source they make it absurdly difficult, so here's the best I can do.
Cop: On Jan. 18th, 2008 at approximately 2:12pm, I was standing on the NE corner of 7th Ave and W 31st St. I observed.... (btw he pulled me over using a car so I guess he runs pretty fast to get in his car)
Cop: I don't have the direction he was traveling written down
Judge: You don't have the direction of travel?
Cop: No, I didn't write down the direction he was traveling.
Judge: So you cannot testify to these offenses?
Cop: No, I cannot.
Judge picks up his not guilty stamp...
Cop to Me: Wear your seat belt.
Me to Cop: I was, SIR.(if you know me you know the disdain that was in my tone while saying this)
Cop to Me: Oh were you? (winks and smiles at me)
Judge: You don't have to make his case for him.
Judge: Step to the side to get your receipt.
Me to Judge: Thank you.

So of 14 Tabloid covers in the Sports Illustrated gallery "A-Rod Strikes Out in Tabloids", 8 are of the Daily News and 6 from the New York Post. Take that National Enquirer! While the fact they cover this at all much less on the front page would clue in most of the world, for some reason people still read them.... Maybe it's cause it's an easy way to avoid eye contact with the guy on the subway who thinks he's an alien.
2. My hero comes along and tries to park next to the car, using one of the two spaces.
3. My hero leaves a note that sounds like it was written by a four year old explaining how they didn't mean to hit the car, but parking in two spots made it hard to avoid
4. Laugh till it hurts
While there's no photographic evidence that someone actually hit the guy's car, we can all hope that someone did, whether it was the person who left the note or not.
My results from Firefox 3b5, Safari 3.1, IE6 spikes one of my cores and never finishes. Firefox and Safari currently are a dead heat, it will be interesting to see what the Firefox 3.0 final numbers look like.
All I can add to that is, "boooooooooooooooooooo"
When the only thing left for you to do to cover-up your overwhelming incompetence, is fear-monger like this, you know the end is near...You know, just like it should have been 6 years ago, when all this lying and law breaking started, and oh right, we impeached Clinton, and that's like a once every 100 years privilege, right?
...Finally, after much "discussion," the director of the National Portrait Gallery finds an appropriate place to hang Colbert's portrait, in between the bathrooms and above the water fountain...Seems the National Portrait Gallery has a sense of humor
Maybe Diebold could build them a better voting machine ;)
