The Beav

And now: the always enjoyable giant inflatable beaver.


I plan to be fabulously wealthy when I die. There are many reasons for this, but one of them is that I want to make sure I leave a subsidy in my estate to pay for all of my funeral attendees to have outfits from the company that made Norway’s curling team’s pants. You can’t […]

Stop ruining things

I love the Olympics. I really do. I’ll watch just about all of it, from figure-skating to snowboarding to luge to curling. Women’s curling, even, although in my defense, American skip Debbie McCormick is strangely intoxicating.

I even watched, and thoroughly enjoyed, biathlon. Of course, what beginning skiier, when waiting in a 45-minute line for […]

Focus on the family

They just didn’t bother […]

Good news, terrifying response

Lots of interesting happenings in gay rights over the last few weeks. The Prop 8 trial concluded testimony in California last week, with closing arguments and judgments to come later. Yesterday, a major hearing was held on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Admiral Michael Mullen, pressing for a repeal of […]

I quoted a lot

I love this: Hey you. You there in the Glenn Beck T-shirt headed off to the Tea Party Patriot rally.

Stop shouting for a moment, please, I want to explain to you why you’re so very angry. You should be angry. You’re getting screwed…Look, you can go back to yelling at me in a minute, but […]
