A friend of mine asked me yesterday why I don’t blog anymore, so I guess I feel motivated today…
Anyway, I heard the second-funniest thing I’ve ever heard yesterday. The funniest thing I’ve ever heard was (embarrassingly) on an episode of Xena: Warrior Princess. In it, one of the characters gives this advice to another: “write what you know.” Now, this is sound advice on writing–but coming from writers whose mouthpiece to deliver it is a woman, supposedly of Classical Greece but sporting red hair and calling herself a “bard,” it’s downright hilarious.
The second-funniest thing I’ve ever heard was delivered in speech by President Obama yesterday: he told Congress that the *ahem* “health-care” bill should be passed because “it goes right down the middle of American politics.” Let me give you a counter example of this logic: Here I have a roast-beef sandwich. Here I have a sandwich made from my own feces. I’ll split them right down the middle, and you can have the resulting sandwich.
How’s your appetite?
