Why I Love The Weekly World News

The Weekly World News reports on President Bush’s cunning plan to solve the homeless problem:

The Bush Administration has a daring new plan to house the growing number of homeless people in the country — clown cars!

“Did you ever go to the circus and see how many clowns come out of a single car?” Bush asked his Cabinet at a meeting last month. “There’s like, tons! From one little car! What if we got a bunch of these cars and let homeless people live in them. Wouldn’t that be great?”

According to a Cabinet official, Bush went to the circus last month and was impressed with how the clowns looked when they emerged from the cars.

“The President said, ‘They’re healthy. Energetic. So it must be pretty comfortable in there. And what’s more, they can all drive around together and look for jobs! Talk about car pooling!’

“When the President gets really excited about an idea like this, there’s no point telling him that the clowns don’t really live in the car, and that it has a false bottom,” the official said.

It’s very, very difficult to parody the Bush administration, but I think they’ve done a fine job here.

The Sci-Fi Channel is hosting a Memorial Day Movie Marathon of their usual exquisitely cheesy low-budget (mostly) monster movies.

In particular, be sure to catch Mansquito at 9PM on Sunday night. It’s… mosquisite.

Friday Quote & Spider Blogging

This weeks quote is from Prisoner Of The Mountains, a Russian film about a soldier captured by the Chechen rebels, and the efforts by his mother to get him freed.

I’m dead, but I like it.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s spiders…

I was taking some pictures of the lightgrapes on my way back from Wednesday night softball, and I decided to see if I could get a closer shot of the spiderweb. Imagine my surprise…

I might have to go back after this one with a tripod some night.
