Schott's Food & Drink Miscellany. "It is gratifying to learn that humble pie is no mere expression. There really was such a thing, a dish made with venison offal, or humbles, a word that derived from the French word for deer entrails, nombles. Mr. Schott thoughtfully includes a 17th-century recipe, which sounds delicious, much more appealing than a restaurant's roast camel 'English style,' one of several dishes served on Christmas at Voisin in 1870, when Paris was under siege. more inside
Congress decides that after 200+ years serious changes to the constitution needed... (NY Time link. registration required) In the upcomming session of Congress it is expected that the House will vote on the gay marriage ammendment, the Senate will vote on a Flag Burning Ammendment, and law is expected to be introduced that will, "prohibiting courts from hearing challenges to the wording of the Pledge of Allegiance" not to mention the good old " series of bills intended to limit lawsuits" and no doubt help big buisness get away with whatever they want.

E-L-E-P-H-A-N-T-S Elephants, lovely elephants! Put heavy anthropomorphic nonsense to shame. Every lumbering elephantine pachaderm has a noticable trunk seperation. Enough lame elephant posts! Has anyone noticed this silliness? Extroverted, lusty elephants play harmonicas and never tootle saxophones. Electric Light Elephants play haphazardly, are no talent screwballs. European lowland elephants prance happily around tolerant Switzerland. Elephants like enthusiastic parades, harmonicas and nas, tempting silliness. Every little elephant prefers having aligators nearby than skunks. Elegant ladies eating pods harness a nimbose, teleportation syrup. Easy loving elk prowl, horny and needing to screw. Elephants: loathsome ending. Police hang a nordic, techno songstress. E-L-E-P-H-A-N-T-S Everybody likes extreme political harassment against neoconservative trolls, seriously! more inside
Iguana emergencies.
Planet Dan's Senior Photo Collection, Vol. 1 We start with the classic hand on chin pose. Not horrible, considering what is to come, and who doesn't want to be forever remembered as being uncomfortably unnatural looking?

Jailhouse Blog Blog written by British prisoner of Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Maricopa County Jail. If Abu Ghraib was like this, there'd be an outcry.
From the National Journal's "Last Call" Suggested "SNL" skit: Bush, as Bluto: "Over? Did you say 'over'? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when Saddam Hussein bombed the Twin Towers? Hell no!" Otter: "Saddam Hussein?" Boon: "Forget it, he's rolling." [nothing inside]
A rather lame study into IQ changes after having children. Basically, parents lose IQ points after having kids, and are incapable of thinking objectively about the special talents of their child. Uh huh. more inside
Curious George: When preparing to write with a pencil (the old-fashioned kind that needs to be sharpened, as opposed to an automatic one), why do some people lick the tips of the pencil lead?

Save Bernd! "I swear by God, I will have this lovely rabbit for New Year's Eve Dinner if my account doesn't show a balance of at least 1'000'000 € by latest 31st Dec 2004 !" At least he's not begging for a new set of breasts.
