A Picture of Miss California Just Because I Want To

Via Patterico

A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him, "Father, I have a problem. I have 2 female parrots, but they only know how to say one thing." "What do they say?" the priest inquired. They say, "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?" "That's obscene!" the priest exclaimed. Then he thought for a moment, "You know," he said, "I may have a solution to your problem. I have 2 male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the bible. Bring your 2 parrots over to my house, and we'll put them in the cage with Frank and Jacob. My parrots can teach your parrots to pray and worship, and your parrots are sure to stop saying that phrase in no time." "Thank you," the woman responded, "this may very well be the solution." The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest's house. As he ushered her in, and she saw that his 2 male parrots were inside their cage holding rosary beads and praying. Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in with them. After a few minutes, the female parrots cried out in unison, "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?" There was a stunned silence. Shocked, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and exclaimed, "Put the beads away, Frank, our prayers have been answered."

Machiavelli Was Wrong

It is infinitely better to be loved than feared. The chains of love are a thousand times stronger than the chains of fear although maybe a thousand times harder to forge. Maybe he meant that you are better off if you fear rather than if you love.

The Compleat Robert E. Howard Online For Free

I read everything Robert E. Howard wrote, starting at age eleven. I was reading Conan comic books at age nineteen. I gave them all to the Salvation Army at age thirty-four. Now they have come back to me online.

"Though he always acted on impulse, he firmly believed that all his actions were governed by cold and logical reasonings. He was a man born out of his time--a strange blending of Puritan and Cavalier, with a touch of the ancient philosopher, and more than a touch of the pagan, though the last assertion would have shocked him unspeakably."

"He was the fool, after all; had he not paused to taunt us, he could have trapped us easily."

Christ Is Risen

Take, receive Light
From the Eternal Light
And give Glory to Christ
Who is Risen from the Dead.

Christ has Risen from among the Dead,
Trampling Death with Death,
And to those Entombed,
He has Granted Life.

These were not bought from an FFL.
Cute soldadera, though.

News of the "Say What?"

In Minnesota, it's a crime to let a pig get fat.

ALSO: Raising Spartans ... not
"The latest episode of HBO's Real Sports, debuting Wednesday, includes a look at school physical education programs aiming to reduce competition and physical contact. Among the innovations: Have children jump rope without using ropes and play tag where you just step on others' shadows rather than tagging them."

AND How did I miss Genital Integrity Awareness Week?

What kind of commenter am I? A very interesting and entertaining article by Michael S. Malone. I have been on Al Gore's internets since 2005 and, depending on which of my comments at which site you picked, you could put me in most, but hopefully not all, of Mr. Malone's categories.

BONUS for SayUncle readers:
Ostensibly Marine, but could be SEAL, sniper on the USS Boxer.

Growing Up

At age twenty-eight, I thought Bruce Sprinsteen was "teh cool". Now, at age 52, I realize that he was never nothing more than a whiny New-Jersey-boy.
