Nobody Works Anymore: Really Freaked Out Friday

It's Friday , by God. And on Fridays we look forward to the week's end and celebrate by freaking ourselves out a little bit . Do you know what a "rat king " is? Meditate on this image. A rat king supposedly occurs when a nest of rats are living in such close quarters that their tails become intertwined, glued together in a tangle of feces and filth . The rats eventually kill each other ...   More

Nobody Works Anymore: Last Chance to Laugh at Sarah (We Hope)

Sarah Palin in her sportscaster days. Yes, that says "Lots of Dogs." We're almost there, folks. 24 hours from now, we will almost certainly have a new president. If our luck holds, it won't be the killah from Wasilla. Still, if tomorrow evening is the last we ever hear of America's first female vice-presidential nominee for the Republican party (unlikely—she's not going anywhere ...   More
