The Nuttiest Things Ever

Zimbabwe’s inflation:

The teacher union “Fair Share” program. It’s an “either-or” situation. There is no compromise, no discussion, no negotiation and no open lines of communication — crucial activities on which many unions are built and in which they take great pride. Hypocritical? Nah. “Join us and pay, or don’t join us and pay” — yeah, that’s the ticket. Whatever. Join your union and be proud, or choose not to join it and be proud. Anything else is extortion.

I triple-dog dare you to drink this.

And on that note, I’ll go make the coffee. The non-predigested kind, thanks. :P

    Hahahha, the Tolstoy finger puppet. I look at it every morning I make the coffee. Helen has about 15 of these finger puppet magnets on the fridge; Joan of Arc, Twain, Shakespeare, Ghandi, and many others I can’t think of. Good stuff…

      No way! I’ve never seen the puppets — only lots of cool magnets. I’d love to see the Joan of Arc one, LOL (And no, I will not ask if she appears to be on fire)

    Yeah, it’s one thing to dream up nutty things (my mom’s classic: Asparagas ice cream), and it’s quite another to actually invent them.

    I first heard about that coffee in ‘The Bucket List’ – Jack Nicholson’s character drank that kind of coffee all the time, but didn’t know about it’s – shall we say “unique” origins until Morgan Freeman’s character brought it to his attention.

    They have composers in those finger puppet things too.

    Hope you’re feeling better!

    LUCKY BREAKĀ® WISHBONES are Proudly Made in the USA. And that is a good thing cuz I imagine that only Americans know what to do with a wishbone.

    I’d drink that coffee but I am saddened to see those poor animals in those cages (don’t get me started!!! :P )

      Aw man I know. The SPCA is doing its national campaign with commercials like this that I cannot get through without bawling.
