7 Years On...

And I personally feel like September 11th happened a lifetime ago. No matter how many years pass however, this is a day that should always bring with it a humbling sense of reverence and reflection. And those who were lost should never be forgotten.

So - now onto the nonsense I usually write.

Jay Leno pointed something out to guest Michael Phelps on his show Monday night - something spectacular:

Phelps got a kick out of Leno's gold-medal count chart. "If you were a country," Leno told Phelps, "you would be the 9th-ranked country in the world. You beat France!"

Oh snap. Le snap. One of our athletes got more gold medals than the entire country of France. It's so good. So good that I don't even need to say anything. Let's all just enjoy the moment.

The other night I was out with my friend Katy, when the conversation turned to Stalin. Which is perfectly normal, I'm sure. We were trying to figure out the number of people who were murdered under his regime, so we could compare his numbers with Hitler (making it easier to declare one of them "Supreme Monstrous Asshole of All Creation" or something of the sort.)

So Katy googles "Stalin" and "murder count" on her blackberry. And one of the first things that comes up, is a paper titled "The Appaling Strangeness - Stalin the Scamp". Never in my life have I found a misused word so utterly offensive. Scamp? You're gonna call Joseph Stalin a scamp?!?! Scamps steal apples from apple carts, they aren't responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of people. Idiot.

Finally - Obama wasn't calling Palin a pig, for Godssakes. It's a common expression, like "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink" or "douche chill".


At 3:41 PM, Blogger Katy said...

Ahahaha. Apple cart scamp! Apple cart scamp!!

And I have to tell you Erin...the liberal media will have you believe the "lipstick line" was a total coincidence, but immediately after Obama said it, the crowd burst into laughter and began chanting against Sarah Palin. And no, I don't like her, but I hate the liberal media more.
