‘Governator’ Schwarzenegger mocks ‘skinny’ Obama
The Austrian-born former Mr Universe has hosted a bodybuilding tournament in Columbus for several years, and opened his address by inviting Obama to participate in the next event.
“Every year in March I come here to organize the Arnold Classic, which is all about building the body and pumping,” Schwarzenegger said.
“That’s why I want to invite Senator Obama because he needs to do something about those skinny legs. I’m going to make him do some squats.
This is less funny less on the political side of things than it is in terms of gym humor.
Also brings to mind the old SNL skit with Hans and Franz–who belittled the “puny girlymen”.
//Heavy squat days ftw!
Mazel tov to the cousin on the birth of her second daugther (name forthcoming)
Just like all 4 of the debates, I didn’t watch it.
End of discussion.
Mind you, have I ever mentioned how much I hate infomercials? Especially since on the weekend that’s all that plays on the tvs in the elevator in my building (but that’s a seperate post)
Oh, and the Phillies won!
Can I write in the Philly Fanatic for President?
NYAG Cuomo warns nine banks about bonus payments – Yahoo! News
Here’s the thing though–those bonueses are taxed by the City, State and Federal govt’s. The City and State, which are going to be hurting for tax revenue, are probably looking forward to.
Plus a lot of the bank bonus money is used by the recipients as disposable income–thus boosting the City’s economy.
Now here’s the State AG, using taxpayer money, to potentially deprive the state of more tax revenues.
Albany is such a screwed up place.
This is full of awesome: Hot Wheels are making a comback!
I used to love playing for hours on end with my hotwheels cars. I also used to have a “drag strip” racing set, that folded up into a carrying case.
Or the hours spent snapping together tracks, racing cars down the steps, or just playing around.
Oh, those were ther days…..
So the sister is watching VH1s garbage reality TV shows this evening. Apparently, she’s the target demogrpahic for said shows.
That’s a sad realization
Granted, it could be worse, it oculd be listening to Joe Buck call the World Series
Ohio Residents Visit Janeâ€™s Carousel
The carousel was from Idora Park, which was down the street from where The Mom originally grew up. So this story is really neat to hear about.
From Drudge’s current headline:
Anyone got a pronunciation?
After a perplexing week, the Browns pull out another victory
Granted, this is Cleveland sports we’re talking about, so this is probably par for the course.
From today’s NY Post articles on [NYC] celebs with gun permits:
Permit holder Alexis Stewart, daughter of homemaking queen and ex-convict Martha Stewart, told The Post that she applied for a gun license after 9/11.
She said she got a gun, now kept in a lockbox in her $3 million TriBeCa apartment, to euthanize her elderly dogs in the event that another calamity struck and forced her to abandon them.
“I had two very old English bulldogs,” said Stewart, who hosts a show on her mother’s Sirius Satellite Radio channel.
“They could never make it out of Manhattan. I could never leave my dogs to die of thirst in my apartment, so I looked on it as a euthanasia situation. I would never kill my pets unless they were going to die anyway.”
Damn, that was a close one.
I wonder why Pryor through into what looked like triple coverage at the end.
Oh, and to the broadcasters, can you guys please come up with a new thing to talk about during the game besides “[Pryor] is a true freshman…”
The OSU-PSU game is so far so good.
OSU really needs to start passing the ball more, opening up the PSU defense for Beanie and Pryor.
Heck, even toss Boeckman in there for a first down or two (to try and catch PSU off base)
Anyone know what’s with the armbands most of the College coaches seem to be sporting today?
Thanks to commenter tb, it appears the armbands are:
This is what I found:
On October 25, 2008, Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD) and theAmerican Football Coaches Association(AFCA) will launch Coach to Cure MD, a one-day, nationwide event designed to raise awareness about Duchenne muscular dystrophy . We need your help to stop this devastating disorder that robs young men of their mobility, their independence, and sadly their life. Support Coach to Cure MD by choosing an option below.
Would be nice if they were reporting it all dayâ€¦If it is this importantâ€¦Good cause!
NY City Council votes to extend term limits
Despite 2 referendums in the 90s to impose two term limits on local politicians.
Granted, Bloomberg wil/would probably do a better job steering through the upcoming fiscal crisis than any of his challengers would, but still.
Most accurate pollster in 2004 election shows: Obama 44.8%, McCain 43.7%, Not Sure 11.6%…
The reasonable part is the sizeable “not sure” demographic.
/Returns to not really paying attention to the election
I’d guess that if you took a poll of swing-state residents about now, more than 75% of them would state that they’re sick of campaign ads.
One of my duties as being the token male in the office is to handle receiving shipments of all shapes and sizes. In truth, it let’s me put my gains from the gym into good use.
Today we got a monster sized shipment, two boxes on pallets (which is unusal for us). Naturally I went to go look for the handy-dandy hand truck (link is for reference only)
Turns out someone at the office had the brilliant idea of putting thumb tacks in the wheels of the cart, rendering it useless. Not fun at all.
Who would deflate the tires on a hand truck!?!?!
Fortunately, I was able to find a dolly, and had some fun pushing the smaller boxes which were contained within the bigger boxes around.
I guess if swallows can carry coconuts, pigeons may be able to serve as “spies’ in the Mid East–or so claim the Iranians.
I’ve decided that I’m in need of a new diversion. Any suggestions?
