9 things we're NOT thankful for

THE CASEY ANTHONY JURY: Not sufficient evidence huh? Oh it was all circumstantial…gotcha. I’ll admit, a child being dumped in the woods with duct tape wrapped around its skull/mouth just screams “accidental drowning”.  Plus, you can’t expect every parent to report such an accidental drowning right away…it takes time to wrap duct tape around a skull and to dispose of a body…not to mention  get a tattoo, shop at target, participate in a “hot body contest”, etc.  That said, I hope Casey Anthony enjoys her Thanksgiving, and by enjoy I mean chokes on something.

Republican Candidates Discuss NBA Lockout at Debate

Michele Bachmann “I don’t know much about basketball, except that I remember Marcus being upset when they changed the uniforms in the early 90’s…something about shorts. That said, I don’t think the Federal Government , and the taxpayers, should be paying for a Meditator to help with this situation.” Herman Cain “9 Teams, 9 Games,... Read more »

An Open Letter to Hockey

Hey old friend-it’s me again. Yea from the early 90’s….and yes we’ve “hooked up” a few times more recently. Well I know in the past you’ve said “Oh you only come around when you need something, when you’re desperate..and then when you find something better you move on”.
