Something I noticed about Obama and Mccain
Obama talks like Dave Chappelle when he is doing his impression of white people and McCain sounds like Richard Dreyfus
first time at a Bruni-worthy restaurant in nyc. yes, the bill was oh-so expensive (a $50 wine fee). yes, my $10 soup came in a shot glass more or less (several bowls full would’ve been more sufficient, it was so good), yes there was a very boozy, very annoying 40 something man slurring beside me (go communal tables!) but this place was quite the scene. Cozy, intimate, lively without being...

didyouevernotice: rickyv: After hearing Matt Damon’s brilliant comparison of a Sarah Palin presidency to a bad Disney movie, I called up Sam and said “Let’s make a trailer for what that movie would look like.” Within hours, Dan and Amir were writing it, Ben and the CHTV crew were casting and producing it, and two weeks later, here it is. Digg?

Billy also had the song “What is a Juggalo” on his ipod for exactly such situations. the song includes these lyrics: What is a...
I am proud you are reading a book i recommended. I’m reading a book you recommended that I’ve been wanting to read for awhile.

Wow ok so i hate you alex bethesdacore: Wow - Okay, so rather than address the issue at hand, which is the completely unfounded and scurrilous argument that all omnivores are “cute animal haters/torturers,” you attack the source of the argument/opinion by decrying his weight and then hoping he dies? Not only is that stupid, it’s actually rather cruel. As for the general weight level of New...
