Surprising Snipits!

Surprising Snipits!

Did Starbucks really lose a taste test - so we all are just under a brand spell?

Did Democrats and Republicans really work together to trim down the stimulus plan or am I getting excited too early in the game? PS Why was all this crap in the STIMULUS package anyway?

Snakes are not bad enough. Now I have to worry about a reptile that is one ton?

Does anyone really care that Michael Phelps toked on a dubie? Give the guys a break!

Did a former Klan leader really apologize to blacks for his attacks and views? There is hope for the world.

The guy who painted the Obama Hope poster is arrested? Do we not have anything better to focus on than a getting a guy who painted Hope? This poster has been out for months now? Don't we have bigger fish to fry (cliche alert!)

Christian Bale's Fbombs - 36 in 4 minutes. Does he get to be logged in Guinness World Book of Records? He must be so proud. Maybe I will try and beat him.

This is just sad. Some people get lost in our justice system.

Jennifer Anniston got a gray hair? There is a god! :) Maybe her boobs will sag now too.

I'm sure everyone knows not to eat too much pizza right? Did Papa J really need a news conference to tell us this?

Time's take on 25 things Meme cracks me up! But do we really need to analyze it?

If I did a detox for 30 days on my email - I think my computer and sanity would explode. How about you?

Yeah - now we can all be trekies. A watch phone? cool

Michael Phelps is a serious threat to the believability of all those "Above the Influence" ads, and that's why they have to make a big deal about it. After all, if you can win 8 gold medals while smoking pot, then the devil weed obviously isn't going to put you into a time-warp cocoon or make you get straight 'D's.

Not that I'm advocating drug use. I'm just pointing out that teenagers don't appreciate people twisting the facts to scare them.

I'm surprised we don't see more of this sort of thing with celebrities, given how many digital cameras are around these days.

That 25 things article almost made me pee. Hopefully it doesn't smell like cheerios. Snarf.

Oh, and I've done the 30 day email detox. It was the undiscovered ninth level of hell.

Very funny. Klan leader- makes me think of Dave Chappell as the "blind KKK" member. Seen it? Hilarious!

I think the stuff with Michael Phelps has been blown out of proportion. I wish he'd made a statement, though, that while he was training or setting his mind on a goal, he didn't toke...or something. Now that I've got a kid in high school, things seem different. I think if he said something like, "Nah, I never do that when I'm training because it would dull my edge..."--that would be something kids could relate to.

Gawd, the guy in prison who was cleared after his death...what a heartwrenching story. There's something really heroic about him refusing to claim guilt just to get out sooner. Guy had some strong will....

Okay, just read the papa john's pizza comment too. Interesting to me that the guy gets critized by investors for saying something so obvious. As if having people overeating on pizza is what he should be advocating...weird.

Also just read the piece on the email detox. Uhm. Why?
