"There! Poor Flopsy's dead, and never called me mother."

Arrrg, how has no one mentioned the "Beethoven and his mynah bird" sketch? That one was the best.
"Ludwig!! Have you seen the sugar bowl!?!?!?"…

I saw this headline and thought it was a "Dune" reference. Damn you for bringing my nerdiness into such stark relief.

That letter _is_ pretty old- it may have been written closer to 1995 than you think.

Cameo by Herbie Husker! wooo!
Aug 31, 2010 zapfizzle commented on Omaha World-Herald Update.
This is still bullshit. The herald recognizes all sorts of "unofficial" events like birthdays, sweet sixteen, anniversaries, "congrats on making the football team", etc.
In fact, it might work to send in what is ostensibly a birthday recognition with a giant picture of onself and one's partner in full wedding gear. Or something.
Aug 9, 2010 zapfizzle commented on The Theory Liberal Conspiracy of Relativity.
oh dear. The article does spend most of its time denying relativity. however, when it begins to discuss time dilation, it actually looks to relativity to support creationism:

"Creation scientists such as physicists Dr. Russell Humphreys and Dr. John Hartnett have used relativistic time dilation to explain how the earth can be only 6,000 years old even though cosmological data (background radiation, supernovae, etc.) set a much older age for the universe. "

What 10 said. A better distraction would be if the group of private citizens that ended up hosting the prom were sane, non-bigots. The student's sympathies would probably switch sides, too. Would it really be that hard, given the press this story is getting, to find support (or even funding) for this option?
