I am loving this commercial:

You'll never see it on TV, so might as well clickyclick.
Warning, it could be offensive. At least, ABC thinks so.
It has the president in it. And an old guy in a thong.

Dance, monkey, dance!

There must be a word in some language for when something is funny,
but also true, thought-provoking, and somewhat sad somehow.
Poignant? No. Not even close.
"Wonderfully funny" will have to do for now.

This... really really bothers me.

It's about a woman who was jailed for wearing a t-shirt.
Is there some part of this story that I'm missing?
I hope LJ is still a Free-speech Zone.

the part of the story you are missing is that it was cindy sheehan.

Yeah, I got that. I just didn't think it mattered.

Treating anybody like that is just wrong.

As far as I can tell, she hadn't done a damned thing but wear a thought-provoking t-shirt.

And the other part: There was no protesting allowed IN the building. That was a RULE. But beyond that... the police screwed up. They admitted it. Someone jumped and said she was, and hauled her out.

One other tidbit: The wife of a Republican Congressman was also tossed out because SHE had a shirt on that said: "I support our troops defending our country"

I think the real lesson here is: DON'T WEAR A T-SHIRT TO A BLACK TIE EVENT!

Spectral analyzer!

I'm not comfortable with him though; he's just the ghost of my former therapist. ;)
