Saw this over on - how can I resist

I was watching the Simpsons a few ago when this classic Homerism came up -

Homer (to Lisa): "Honey, I've written you a song so shmaltzy it makes Moon River sound like an orangutan farting."

There's a ton of sites out there with Simpson trivia and some dedicated to just quotes from Homer.

Homer "But Marge, what if we chose the wrong religion? Each week we just make God madder and madder."

Homer (to Bart): "Son, a woman is a lot like a... (looks around) a refrigerator! They're about six feet tall, 300 pounds. They make ice, and... um... (spots his can of Duff) Oh, wait a minute. Actually, a woman is more like a beer. They smell good, they look good, and you'd step over your own mother just to get one! (downs the beer) But you can't stop at one. You wanna drink another woman!

Homer: "I think the saddest day of my life was when I realized I could beat my Dad at most things, and Bart experienced that at the age of four."

Homer taking an exam : “Alright Brain, you don't like me, and I don't like you. But lets just do this, and I can get back to killing you with beer.”

Homer: "America's health care system is second only to Japan...Canada, Sweden, Great Britain...well, all of Europe. But you can thank your lucky stars we don't live in Paraguay!"

Some of the best come from Homer's Phobia with John Waters -
Marge: Didn't John seem a little...festive to you?
Homer: Couldn't agree more, happy as a clam.
Marge: He prefers the company of men!
Homer: Who doesn't!

Homer: "You know me, Marge. I like my beer cold, my TV loud, and my homosexuals fa-laming!"

Homer: Bart! Where did you get that shirt?
Bart: I'unno... Came outta the closet.
Homer: Uuuuuh....huh.

Here are some good ones:


Day 7 - Jimmy Hoffa Still Dead

Yes, just like Franco.

Milford, Mich. -- The most popular item on the menu at the Milford Baking Co. these days is the 95-cent "Hoffa cupcake," featuring a green plastic hand reaching up through chocolate icing and candy sprinkles designed to resemble earth.

Down the street, customers are lining up at Leslie Watson's art store to buy $15 T-shirts reading, "The FBI digs Milford, do you?"

A week of digging by investigators at the Hidden Dreams Farm outside town has turned up no evidence of the remains of the former Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa, but it has stirred a morbid sense of humor in residents of this village of 6,300 people.

"All the extra buzz around Milford has been a lot of fun," Watson said.

Agents are preparing to begin the next phase of their search for Hoffa, which began a week ago. Workers from a local demolition company said they were asked to arrive today to begin tearing down a 100-foot horse barn.

The barn stands over the spot where an FBI informant claims he saw Hoffa laid to rest in 1975, rolled up in a rug.

Well at least they're not listening to our phone calls. Way to go Alberto.

The news is boring. I'm busy.
Ho Hummmm........

Humans and Chimps

And everyone has heard this by now....

It could be the oldest, not to mention the messiest, break-up in history. When humans and chimpanzees split up along the path of evolution, they carried on having sex for as long as 4m years, geneticists claim today.

The revelation suggests that the history of humanity may be far more complex than scientists appreciated.

A comparison of snippets of DNA from humans, chimps and other primates shows that after parting company up to 10m years ago early humans and chimps continued to swap genes by interbreeding, until a final split much later. The study suggests the species split for good probably less than 5.4m years ago.

Geneticists believe the interbreeding theory is the best explanation of why the X chromosomes of humans and chimps remain so similar to this day.,,1777273,00.html

That Snake's Going to Need a Clog

I wouldn't be sitting on that seat again soon....

A boy described yesterday how he paid a visit to the lavatory only to find a 2½ft snake slithering around the pan.

Daniel Peate, 11, lifted the lid and the snake reared its head and attempted to get out.

The reptile, thought to be a non-venomous, American corn snake, stayed in the lavatory for more than an hour. But it had disappeared back down below by the time the RSPCA arrived at the house in Ruyton, near Shrewsbury.

Daniel said: "I had the fright of my life when I looked down. There was this snake curled up at the bottom and it poked its head up. I called out for my dad because I thought it might be poisonous."

Backwardass Fashions

I guess this explains the lack of Italian Muslims....

Or maybe forcing women to be covered head to toe in a black hooded robe is just as stupid as it seems.

Gas & Tax

I've been mentioning to friends for a long time that the state is making a killing off high gas prices. Well for the first time I see the news media has picked up on this.
In today's SFGate is this....

Sales tax receipts from the gas pumps in the fourth quarter of last year grew by nearly $100 million from the same period the year before , according to the latest figures available. And that was when California's average price for a gallon of gas at the pump, which includes state and local sales tax along with fixed state and federal excise taxes, was at $2.56.

Since 2002, sales tax revenues on gas have been growing annually by $300 million to $400 million to reach $2.86 billion in 2005, according to the California Board of Equalization. And with fuel prices at the pump already well above $3, the gas tax boom will likely continue for state and local governments.

Maybe instead of trying to float $100 billion bonds the state could try reducing unneeded spending and using the windfall to get the state back in shape.

Boondocks Y La Cucaracha

I've written about comics before but I wanted to point out this week the strip La Cucaracha is running a spoof on one of my other favorites The Boondocks, which is currently running the early strips while Aaron McGruder talks a six month hiatus. Does anyone else watch the cartoon of The Boondocks on adultswim on Sunday nights? Very funny stuff.

I've resorted to reading about a dozen strips online since our local rag seems compelled to resort to unscientific surveys to choose strips. The one they are currently running in their test slot is okay at least(sorry I forget the name). Way better than that Cow & Boy thing that some dunderhead there said was similar to Calvin & Hobbs. Of course thinking like that is why The Family Circus and Fred Basset persist.

Such drival while we have to seek out Doonesbury and Non Sequitur because they are too liberal for the sensibilities of our all american populace here in KC.

Jose Can You See

I'm back! Man I was down for the last several days with a nasty little bug I would have expected to get in Mexico. Ay carumba.

Well let's see. National anthem in spanish. Oh please. (why not go to Mexico and sing theirs in english?)

Day without a Mexican. Please. (not true, I went for a haircut today and my Mexican barber and all the others were joking about it.)

Immigration law reform. I don't even want to get started. see Mr Bates here for some pretty good reasoning

Soon to be back to my usual miserable self.
