Good Morning Campers… Some of our campers back east had a bit of excitement this week…a 5.8 (or 5.9 depending on who you listen to) earthquake struck Virginia. It seemed to be centered in a little cemetery outside of Washington, DC. Scientist believe that the actual cause appears to be all our founding fathers rolling over in their graves.
According to one of our campers, who happened to be on the scene of a press conference immediately after the earthquake with president Obama at the golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, the quake actually occurred on a little known line that runs right through the middle of Virginia called the Bush’s Fault.
And now this news report seems to put all those theories together and add yet another:
BREAKING NEWS: The Weather Channel says yesterday’s east coast earthquake was caused by an unknown fault line running under D.C. and through Virginia. It is now being called Obama’s Fault, although Obama will undoubtedly say it’s really Bush’s Fault. Other theories are that the disturbance was caused by our founding fathers rolling over in their graves and/or that the earthquake was actually the effect of a 14.6 trillion dollar check bouncing in Washington.
In honor of the 44th President of the United States , Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream has introduced a new flavor: “ Barocky Road”
Barocky Road is a blend of half vanilla, half chocolate, and surrounded by nuts and flakes. The vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied as an ingredient. The nuts and flakes are all very bitter and hard to swallow.
The cost is $82.84 per scoop….so out of a hundred dollar bill you are at least promised some CHANGE..!
When purchased it will be presented to you in a large beautiful cone, but after you pay for it, the ice cream is taken away and given to the person in line behind you at no charge.
You are left with an empty wallet, staring at an empty cone and wondering what just happened.
Are you stimulated?
I don’t write this stuff campers, I just pass it on, but this is too good to pass up. And yes, for those of you of the democratic persuasion, this is a little more, old fashioned, Obama bashing…..but only because he makes it so easy!
I know this is supposed to be the smartest administration ever, but if I were running a presidential campaign with a fairly unpopular incumbent, the last thing I’d do is have a reelection slogan whose initials were WTF!
Impish Dragon and Lethal Leprechaun were in the gym working out when this sweet young thing walked in.
Impish turns to Lethal and asks, “Hey LL, what machine in here do you think I should use to impress that sweet thing over there?”
The Leprechaun looked him up and down and said, “I’d try the ATM in the lobby.”
What an incredibly strong statement to our government:
Subject: Doorbell of Truth…..
Power Line Blog held a prize competition for $100,000 for whoever can most effectively and creatively dramatize the significance of the federal debt crisis. Any creative product was eligible: videos, songs, paintings, screenplays, Power Point presentations, essays, performance art, or anything else
Several entries have gotten a lot of attention and a lot of views or listens. But unquestionably, the one that has most gone viral so far is Doorbell. If you haven’t yet seen it, you may watch it here.
A real classic, this one.
So this one is really well done!
In the wake of Bin Laden’s death, Radical Muslims are planning to go on a rampage in Southern California, from Los Angeles south to the Mexican border, killing anyone who is a legal US citizen.
Police fear the death toll could be as high as 23.
We will keep you posted on future developments.
Today’s Last Word… is more of a serious plea. Hurricane Irene is going to strike the East Coast of the United States, by the time you read this, probably some of you campers out there might be camping for real. Let’s all be really careful. Nothing you own is worth your life. Protect family and friends first. Property second. If you are at all hesitant to ride it out, then evacuate. Go some place safe.
My hope and wish and prayers are for all my east coast brothers and sisters, friends and families, to be well and be safe.
