The good news is that the Sleestaks in the new Land of the Lost movie look pretty much the same. The bad news is it stars Will Ferrell.

I know you’re all asking, “Who’s a good girl? Who’s a good girl?” The answer? Rosie!
We rescued this Lab/Terrier mix from almost certain euthanasia through a pet rescue agency here in Connecticut. She and her four siblings were left for dead in a dumpster behind a convenience store in Jackson, Tennessee. My daughter Lillian has been asking for a dog for years and we could no longer deny her the experience.
Any advice from other Juggie dog owners? This is our first beast.

An interesting, short, somewhat counterintuitive article published by the Ludwig Von Mises Institute.
The marching armies of the past
Along our Southern plains,
Are sleeping now in quiet rest
Beneath the Southern rains.
The bugle call is now in vain
To rouse them from their bed;
To arms they’ll never march again—
They are sleeping with the dead.
No more will Shiloh’s plains be stained
With blood our heroes shed,
Nor Chancellorsville resound again
To our noble warriors’ tread.
For them no more shall reveille
Sound at the break of dawn,
But may their sleep peaceful be
Till God’s great judgment morn.
We bow our heads in solemn prayer
For those who wore the gray,
And clasp again their unseen hands
On our Memorial Day.

The automobile driving manual says the average driver’s
reaction time is: .75 seconds……. or 1 car length for every 10
Test your average reaction time.
Be very careful this can be addicting.
File under Week 17 of 2008
I want to thank everyone again for the great JuggFestSouth last weekend. I learned once again that Southern hospitality is real and tangible and warm and fuzzy. Special thanks to the Ttrogg family (he and his Mom and sisters and The Geekess are awesome hosts) and the Derf Family and Weirdsin for the fantastic food and a place to lay my head. DaneBramage is and always will be a good dear friend. What great friendships we have all shared over the years! JorsaBeck’s bbq sauce may stain, but it is damn good. I paid $26 for a fishing license and caught one teeny little bass, but it was well worth it. I probably do not need to drink again for a month. It was super good to see everyone and I can’t wait to see you all again.
With that said, let’s get on with the Week in Review:
This is the sexiest woman in the world (except Mrs. FB):
Fucktards of the Week:
Rozlynn Rodgers, 19 who drowned her kid because it interfered with her “night life”.
James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, Jr. Anyone who calls Condi a liar is a Fucktard, but he goes and meets with Hamas, a known terrorist organization. Wow. I think that may well be a crime.
Whoever did this is certainly guilty of Fucktardary of major proportion.
These four big time Fucktards who shot a bank teller who was pregnant with twins. They survived. She did not.
Blade actor Wesley Snipes who tried like heck to avoid paying taxes. He might try the same thing with death.
This un-named 16 year old asshat from Mishawaka, IN who planned a Columbine-like attack. Get a grip dude.
Great headlines this week:
Priest Missing After Balloons Carry Him Off. They were mean and strong balloons.
AUSTRALIAN HOSPITAL FORCED TO CLOSE AFTER IT IS OVERRUN BY POISONOUS SPIDERS.
It was the great Australian spider stampede of 2008!
By a long-shot, this was my favorite headline this week. Eamus Catuli!
The truth in this headline is obvious. Ann Coulter rulz!
Dane already posted something about this one, but the headline is just too good.
And this, boys and girls, is how galaxies are made:
Hubble pic. Of what does it remind you? 😕
This story about the separation of children from their polygamist parents bothers me deeply.
I thought this was an interesting human interest story about a guy who lives in our home town who has a sod roof. I always wondered about it and who lived there. Now I know.
Here is another keen story about a blind dude who kicked the crap out of an intruder. Well done sir!
Happy healthy weekends to all.
PS: Much love to Trench for filling in last week and continuing to chronicle fucktardary around the planet.

First and foremost, let me tell you that I’m a huge fan of yours.
As my friend, you always seem to be there when needed.
The perfect post-work cocktail, a beer at the game, and you’re even around at the
holidays (hidden inside chocolates as you warm us when we’re stuck in
the midst of endless family gatherings).
However, lately I’ve been wondering about your intentions.
