Roundup of Sunday Funnies 30 Nov 2009



From Denny: The late night comics primarily had a field day with Palin yet threw some crumbs to the peanut gallery: Schwarzenegger, Bush, Oprah, Geithner, Karzai, KSM, Bill and Hillary Clinton. Can't wait to see what they do this week with Iran and its 10 new nuke plants they are building. We can only imagine their diplomatic solutions...

From Jay Leno:

"President Obama is getting ready to pardon the White House turkey, the Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner."

"I don't want to say Geithner is not doing a good job. But, today, God asked for his name to be taken off the bill."

"The White House and the Senate Democrats are working on a new jobs bill. The White House said this new jobs bill could create twice as many non-existent fake jobs as the last one."

"Now, three weeks ago, [the Administration] said the $787 billion stimulus-thing created one million new jobs. Then, last week, they said it was really only 640,000 jobs. Now, they're saying they really don't know. You know how to create a new job? Fire the guy in charge of counting."

"There's a lot of controversy over this section of this new health care bill that says if you don't buy health insurance, you can go to jail for five years. They say it'll prevent freeloaders of the system. Yeah, but — well, if they do go to jail, won't they get free health care for five years?"

"President Obama was in China last week. Today, the Chinese government sent him a beautiful gift. Did you see this on the news tonight? It was a 10% off coupon at Wal-Mart."

"California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says he will not run for another office once his term as governor is over. And the amazing thing — do you know what he's going to be doing after this? He'll be a speech therapist."

"Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, reportedly a huge fan of President Obama. He thinks President Obama's doing a great job. Well, Obama hasn't had PR that good since the Reverend Wright was campaigning for him."

"The alleged 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, is gonna be tried in New York City after all, it looks like. A lot of people saying this is too dangerous. And, of course, the big fear, he could escape by disappearing into a sea of cab drivers."

"This week, Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai was sworn in wearing Afghanistan's traditional clothing: Kevlar pants, a helmet and bulletproof vest."

"The George W. Bush library design was unveiled this week by former First Lady Laura Bush. Did you know that she was a librarian when she first met George? Did you know that? In fact, she's the only thing he ever checked out of a library."

"Hillary Clinton tells Vogue magazine that she naps on command, like that. Yeah, especially when Bill asks if she's in the mood"



From David Letterman:

"That evil guy, the evil masterminding terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, he is going on trial here in New York City. I will tell you something, this guy is nothing but evil. One time he called CNN and told him that his son was floating away in a balloon."

"Khalid is expected to get a tough reception here in New York City because everybody hates him. You know, why not? Here's a guy you can hate. And on top of that, he's a Red Sox fan."

"Legal experts are worried about having [Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's] trial here in New York City with this guy because they think he'll use the trial as a soapbox. Use the trial as a soapbox. Have you seen the guy, there he is. If he does, it will be the closest this guy has been to soap in years."

"It's a big week for (New York Senator) Chuck Schumer. First his birthday and then being named sexiest man alive."

"Barnes and Noble is running a great promotion on the Sarah Palin book. You buy the Sarah Palin book, they will throw in a free Mayan calendar."

"John McCain, Sarah Palin's former running mate, read the Sarah Palin memoir. After 23 years of military service, five years as a prisoner of war, 22 years as a U.S. senator, I'm sure that John found Sarah's story very inspirational."

"A lot of people are saying that it's too soon for Sarah Palin to write a memoir. They say she should wait until she had at least ten more years of inexperience."

"Anybody reading the 'Going Rogue' book, the Sarah Palin memoir? Remember the interview she did with Katie Couric before the election and it was confusing and clumsy. Well, in the book, Sarah Palin says that she felt ambushed when Katie Couric asked her what newspapers she read. This coming from a woman who hunts wolves from a helicopter."

"Sarah Palin signed copies — she's out on a massive book tour. This is a huge bestseller. She was at Barnes & Noble today and she actually had to take a break because she got a cramp in her wig."

"Then she got a sore hand from signing so many book copies. She had to call Rush Limbaugh to get some OxyContin, and that put her right where she wanted to be."

"Welcome to New York City. Beginning Monday, you know who's going to be here? Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will be here. He's going on trial. And the time that he's in New York City, he's going to be very busy. Monday, for example — Monday morning — he'll be on the 'Today Show,' singing 'I Dreamed a Dream.' Very busy schedule."

"He's not coming on this show, apparently because of a joke I made about his daughter."

"But listen to this. What a great idea. The CIA has a plan now, they're going to grab Osama bin Laden when he shows up for jury duty. They're going to get him, cuff him, outta here!"

"Here's great news. The United States Senate unveiled its healthcare bill. Listen to this: $849 billion, 2,000 pages. Whooo! Sounds like a Donald trump prenup."

"Sarah Palin's book is now available on kindle, and, coincidentally, I'm using my copy as kindling."

"On Friday, President Obama pardons the White House turkey. Mmm-boy. Dick Cheney didn't miss an opportunity. He proves that Obama is soft on poultry."



From Conan O'Brien:

"The ratings just came in for Sarah Palin's appearance on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' It earned Oprah her highest ratings since the episode where she reunited the Osmond family. Yeah, viewers who saw both episodes say Palin's more likable but that Donny and Marie are more qualified to be president."

"Oprah Winfrey announced she's quitting her show. Oprah's quitting. No, crazy. Yeah. This is the crazy thing. Oprah said she used prayer to help her decide to end her show. That's what she said. Yeah, Oprah said she stopped praying when she realized she has more money than the guy she's praying to."

"According to a new poll, more Americans would like to have Thanksgiving dinner with Hillary Clinton than with Sarah Palin. That's what the poll said. Yeah. Mainly because no one wants to eat elk pie."

"It's been reported that CNN got so tired of Lou Dobbs' focus on immigration issues that they paid him $8 million to leave. Yeah, and just to rub it in, they gave it to him in pesos."

From Jimmy Fallon:

"Over the weekend, the Senate voted to allow debate on the healthcare bill. Can you believe that? It's like fighting over whether or not to fight."

From Seth Meyers:

"Sarah Palin launched her book tour this week with a stop in Michigan, where more than 1,000 people waited to meet her. Or, as Fox News reported it, half a million people."

"In a long-standing Thanksgiving tradition, President Obama is scheduled to pardon the White House turkey this coming Wednesday. 'Hey, that's great,' said Joe Biden. 'I didn't even know I did anything wrong.'"

"To help pay for the health care plan, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid proposed a 5% tax on all elective cosmetic surgery. Oh, sure, I guess it is easy to tax plastic surgery when you already have movie star good looks [on screen: a photo of Reid]."

"It was reported Monday that food summit, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi spent several hours in the company of 200 Italian women and tried to convert them to Islam. Long story short -- he's a Catholic now."

"The design for George W. Bush's presidential library was unveiled Wednesday in Dallas, and features a lantern-shaped roof that will glow at night. Mr. President, I don't want to make any more jokes about you being dumb, but you have to meet me halfway. Don't build a library where the lights are on when no one is home."

Editorial Cartoons Roundup 28 Nov 2009

From Denny: Cartoons about Thanksgiving were great as I especially enjoyed the first two about turkeys, one on the run and the other in denial of the big day. The third one really says it all: Uncle Sam is Tapped Out, Folks of the World! George Bush saw to that bankruptcy!

While Sarah Palin tripped off the news radar this week there were plenty of other odd GOP folks for cartoonists to lampoon. Palin got shot off the news when Fox News aka Liars News had to repent and finally fact check her only to discover she was lying about all her claims in the book. There is a reason the book is titled "Going Rogue," and it isn't about being angry - more about seeing how much money you can rake into your wallet with absurb outlandish lying as a profession.

The biggest theme in cartoons this week developed into images of how perplexed are the American people. Take a look:







And why do the Democrats even waste their - and our - time trying to sweet talk a bunch of demented people who lie about and hate the other 80% of America?









Bringing terrorist to trial is better than holding political prisoners indefinitely. Besides, these guys are murderers and some decision needs to be made about their status:





With global swine flu comes the changing of the Santa tradition:



Why it should even be controversial for people to give a damn about the health of their fellow countrymen and women is beyond me... What has happened to the decency in this country?





The Real "Average Joe" in America feels like he or she has been run over by an 18-wheeler truck that stopped, backed up in reverse, parked on his or hers chest, proceeded to let the air out of the tires to keep Average Joe pinned down, and then left the truck and walked away without calling for help. It really makes you wonder who the real Turkey of the Year is - the American people - considering the toxic leftovers from the Bush-Cheney political waste dump where Obama is drowing in their red ink:

A Man in Love - Libations Friday! 27 Nov 2009



*** A poem about the struggle for love reunited...

From Denny:
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I cooked and have been laying back yesterday and today and posting in the afternoon my time instead of the early morning. It's been three years since my car accident where I was able to make a proper dinner again and it sure felt good!

The menu at our house for two? Roasted Cajun Turkey (lots of fresh chopped rosemary, spices, browned clarified butter and white wine as a wet rub while it roasted), roasted sweet potatoes with browned clarified butter. Because of the awesome spices and sauvignon blanc wine in the web rub that were now mixed into the roasting pan's drippings - the gravy was out of this world perfection - no need to add extra spice.

We enjoyed sauteed garlicky green beans (bought them fresh on Saturday, blanched them and all I had to do was toss them together in a saute pan with clarified browned butter, a bit of Creole seasoning, and, when cooked enough, then took them off the heat and add granulated garlic powder and tossed again: simple!) :)

Then there was that awesome fresh cranberry chutney with pineapple in it, sure beats that canned weirdness of jellied cranberry juice. To top it off we love a spicy apple pie. Since there were only two of us this year and I didn't want to get stuck with eating up a large pie day after day, I went for individual pies. I took a tip from a professional chef and cooked up ahead of time the fresh Braeburn apples filling - with loads of freshly grated nutmeg, ground cloves and lots of cinnamon with browned clarified butter, white and dark brown sugars.

Also, made the unsalted butter pie dough ahead of time and chilled in the fridge. All I had to do was roll out about a three inch ball of dough just large enough to cover an individual round ramekin dish. Placed the filling in the lightly buttered ramekin and covered with the circle of dough, poked three holes in it and then baked for 25 - 30 minutes and voila! yummy perfect apple pie. You also avoid too much gooey pie crust and instead have perfect crispy crust, thin and delicate.

OK, so for today what did we do for lunch? Wash, rinse, repeat. And wow! it was still as good as yesterday's meal!

So, why the big "what I had for my meal" lead-in? I'm so glad you asked - or were scratching your head in confusion... Since I slowed down to savor the holiday today I had time to reflect upon yesterday. My husband and I always spend time on a holiday to reflect and relate interesting or inspiring stories to each other of what we find in our world. This following poem story relates one such unusual and beautiful story I learned yesterday and is certainly something to ponder.

A Man in Love

After our Thanksgiving Day meal my husband and I lounged on the couch sipping our after-dinner coffee.

Every Thanksgiving we talk, sometimes for hours, about touching stories we heard that year.

This is a true story that took place more than 60 years ago in the World War Two generation.

It’s the universal story of a young soldier at war, yearning to get home to the woman he loves.

Oddly, as the story unfolded, I felt that finger-run up your spine sensation that happens when your spirit is awakened from its slumber.

The spiritual energy journeyed upward, warmed and flung open the doors of my heart, my eyes brimming with tears and a smile.

Then the energy rose up into my head in a burst of spreading light and settling calm.

In seconds I was intensely awake and aware, knowing to focus upon the story for it was important.

The young soldier was a lieutenant who had served in North Africa and Normandy.

It was here in Normandy he found himself alone on a hill, badly wounded by shrapnel.

He was separated from his unit. No one knew his location and no one could retrieve him under withering enemy fire if they did.

Charles knew he had to do something or he would die of his wounds in a matter of minutes.

He thought long and hard about his priorities in Life. Charles had not seen his wife in almost three years.

All he wanted to do was get home to make love to his wife. It was a simple decision that propelled him forward.

While the bullets flew above his head and near him he started crawling down that hill an inch at a time, bleeding profusely.

He kept the image of his wife’s face in his head, determined to make it home to her.

Charles wondered if he was going to survive this crawl downhill. Between the bullets and the blood he knew he needed immediate medical attention. He crawled on.

Finally, he made it to the bottom of the hill safely. He saw another soldier and begged him to help, asking him to call a medic.

The soldier replied, “No problem. I am a medic.” Charles was well relieved and thankful. The first person he meets at the bottom of the hill was a medic.

The medic tended to his wounds, stopped the bleeding and stabilized him for transport.

He asked the name of the Mexican-American medic because he didn’t want to forget the name of the man who saved his life.

The medic stuck out his hand to shake and said, “Oh, I’m Jesus, glad to meet you.”

Charles was startled, wondering if God had really heard his battlefield prayer and then thought maybe it was just coincidence.

Months passed while Charles was in the hospital recovering from his wounds.

The war was ending, he recovered well enough and was sent home.

Finally, he would see his wife’s face in person, no longer dependent upon her letters and a well worn photo he kept in his pocket to remember her beautiful face.

Charles traveled back to Texas where he and his wife were to meet. He promised to meet her at a special hotel.

When he arrived at the hotel lobby, Charles was surprised to see the place flooded with soldiers arriving back from the war just like him.

He tried to book a room but they were full; Charles was shocked he didn’t realize to plan ahead.

He sat down in the lobby trying to figure out what to do. He was shocked this reunion was not the beautiful meeting he had planned in his mind.

The reality of disappointing his wife overwhelmed him. He slumped into the lobby chair, frozen in disbelief.

He could not seem to lift his head, think straight or move his feet to action. Charles just sat there dumbfounded.

After all he went through to stay alive on the battlefield, heal in the hospital and travel here, he had not anticipated this.

As he was reflecting upon his dilemma and how to face his wife, a man approached him.

“I see you look troubled, soldier. Is there anything I can do to help?”

Charles came out of his battlefield reverie of what he had promised himself as he crawled down that hill to see a tall man, well dressed in an expensive business suit.

He wondered why the man was bothering to care about him but was touched at his concern.

Charles suddenly opened up and told the man his problem, something before this war he would have never done to a complete stranger.

The man nodded his head, said nothing, and turned to go over to the hotel desk.

The stranger returned to Charles, and said in a kind voice, “Don’t worry, soldier. It’s all been arranged. You deserve the best.”

Charles was startled, “What do you mean?”

The man smiled, handed him the room key, and walked away.

Charles was so shocked he barely mumbled his thanks as the man disappeared. He never did get his name.

While he was counting his good luck his mood began to lift. His wife walked into the lobby just ten minutes after the stranger left his side.

As he saw his wife approach he forgot all about everything. His dream was reality. He was finally reunited with his love. Suddenly everything felt right in the world again.

When he and his wife arrived at their room, Charles was surprised the man had given them not just a basic room but a spacious well-appointed suite.

Nine months to the day of their hotel reunion their first child was born.

Charles knew the birth of their child was his third blessing.

As Charles tells his story all these years later he is convinced that man was an angel, “And if he wasn’t a real angel, well, he sure was to me and my wife that day!”

Making A Difference - Moms Helping Moms

From Denny: This is known as the Rockin' Appalachian Mom Project where a woman from Connecticut decided to do something in Kentucky to help out impoverished families in need. This was not a one-time donation but a promise to stick with them for as long as it takes.

This part of the country helps deliver coal but also at a terrible price: often early death or cancer. Many young mothers are widows in the Kentucky and West Virginia region. It's a catch-22 situation where people have to decide that to survive they take the jobs - and with the jobs comes pollution, ill health and cancer. A tough dilemma for anyone.

This story is heart-warming and especially poignant during the holiday season.



This clip is a web-exclusive and gives a more in-depth interview. You really have to take your hat off to these wealthy women getting in there with a hands-on attitude to helping other women.

Funny Thanksgiving Quotes - Cheeky Quote Day! 25 Nov 2009



From Denny: Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving Day, full of good food, good friends, fun times and good wine! No matter what is going on in our lives, we always take extra time to reflect upon what is good in the world at our house.

We also like to think of new ways to nurture that goodness in others and, in turn, in the world. The world is what we choose to make of it! And I choose to laugh a lot, even for serious occasions. What is Life if you don't laugh til your sides hurt? :)

Quotes

* We're having something a little different this year for Thanksgiving. Instead of a turkey, we're having a swan. You get more stuffing. - George Carlin (one of the cheekiest guys God ever made)

* Thanksgiving is the day when you turn to another family member and say, "How long has Mom been drinking like this?" My Mom, after six Bloody Marys looks at the turkey and goes, “Here, kitty, kitty.” - David Letterman

* Here I am 5 o'clock in the morning stuffing bread crumbs up a dead bird's butt. - Roseanne Barr

* It must be an odd feeling to be thankful to nobody in particular. Christians in public institutions often see this odd thing happening on Thanksgiving Day. Everyone in the institution seems to be thankful 'in general.' It's very strange. It's a little like being married in general. - Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.

* It was dramatic to watch my grandmother decapitate a turkey with an ax the day before Thanksgiving. Nowadays the expense of hiring grandmothers for the ax work would probably qualify all turkeys so honored with 'gourmet' status. - Russell Baker

* I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land. - Jon Stewart

* My mother is such a lousy cook that Thanksgiving at her house is a time of sorrow. - Rita Rudner

* There is no sincerer love than the love of food. - George Bernard Shaw

* My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor. - Phyllis Diller

* Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow. - Edward Sandford Martin

* Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. ~ Erma Bombeck

* What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving? ~ Erma Bombeck, "No One Diets on Thanksgiving," 26 November 1981

* An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day. ~ Irv Kupcinet

* On Thanksgiving Day, all over America, families sit down to dinner at the same moment: Football’s Half Time! ~ Anonymous

* Thanksgiving is America's national chow-down feast, the one occasion each year when gluttony becomes a patriotic duty. ~ Michael Dresser

* If you count all your assets, you always show a profit. ~ Robert Quillen

* I have strong doubts that the first Thanksgiving even remotely resembled the "history" I was told in second grade. But considering that (when it comes to holidays) mainstream America's traditions tend to be over-eating, shopping, or getting drunk, I suppose it's a miracle that the concept of giving thanks even surfaces at all. ~ Ellen Orleans

* Thanksgiving: Not a good day to be my pants! ~ Kevin James

* Happy We-Stole-Your-Land-and-Killed-Your-People Day! ~ Thanksgiving toast, from the movie Sweet November

* Thanksgiving Day, a function which originated in New England two or three centuries ago when those people recognized that they really had something to be thankful for - annually, not oftener - if they had succeeded in exterminating their neighbors, the Indians, during the previous twelve months instead of getting exterminated by their neighbors, the Indians. Thanksgiving Day became a habit, for the reason that in the course of time, as the years drifted on, it was perceived that the exterminating had ceased to be mutual and was all on the white man's side, consequently on the Lord's side; hence it was proper to thank the Lord for it and extend the usual annual compliments. ~ Mark Twain

* The funny thing about Thanksgiving, or any huge meal, is that you spend 12 hours shopping for it and then chopping and cooking and braising and blanching. Then it takes 20 minutes to eat it and everybody sort of sits around in a food coma, and then it takes four hours to clean it up. ~ Ted Allen

* Coexistence: what the farmer does with the turkey - until Thanksgiving. ~ Mike Connolly

* The thing I'm most thankful for right now is elastic waistbands. ~ Anonymous

* I love Thanksgiving turkey. It's the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts. ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger

* Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often. ~ Johnny Carson



Red Velvet Cake - a Southern tradition

Thanksgiving Day Joke

*** Thanksgiving Dinner Bribe


What will Dad do to get a grandchild?

The entire family was assembled for Thanksgiving dinner. All four children were there with their spouses that they had recently married. All four couples were childless.

Before saying grace, Father said that he would give $10,000 to the son or daughter who would present Mom and himself with their first grandchild. After the “Amen,” he looked up to find nobody left at the table except himself, Mom and the turkey.

Serving himself one drumstick and Mom the other, he turned to Mom and said, “Told you it would work.”


A little Thanksgiving Day poem for a grin:

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
~ Anonymous

And one more grinner poem:

Stuffing the turkey

* For Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner, please learn a lesson from this poor person about how *not* to stuff the turkey!

The turkey shot out of the oven
and rocketed into the air,
it knocked every plate off the table
and partly demolished a chair.

It ricocheted into a corner and
burst with a deafening boom,
then splattered all over the kitchen,
completely obscuring the room.

It stuck to the walls and the windows,
it totally coated the floor,
there was turkey attached to the ceiling,
where there’d never been turkey before.

It blanketed every appliance,
it smeared every saucer and bowl,
there wasn’t a way I could stop it,
that turkey was out of control.

I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure,
and thought with chagrin as I mopped,
that I’d never again stuff a turkey....
with popcorn that hadn’t been popped!!

- Anonymous (Oh, how I wish I wrote that one, what a scream!)

All TSP Blog Followers From Blogger - What to Do When Follower Gadgets Dont Work on Your Blog



From Denny: Since I just found out this week that Blogger does not back up any of the sidebar or other boxed links and the like, only backing up blog posts, I've decided to make posts out of everything carried as links. But hey! I've also finally figured out after a first year blogger that by doing it this way, now it will condense down the number of links necessary in the sidebar. All I will require is one link to a post containing many links! Yay! In so doing the additional benefit is the page should load better so that's a happy day for you my lovely readers! :)

Can I also tell you that I've given up on the Followers Gadget from Blogger and Google Connect which don't work on any of my blogs for no reason? So, as usual, not one to be too patient and wait forever (6 months is long enough) I came up with this bright idea.
