What's that smell?

I was taught in school to always cite my sources, so I plan to continue that practice here on my blog. Did I spell cite correctly? It looks kind of funny, doesn't it?

My sources are listed below.

  • Jon Stewart / The Daily Show

  • Stephen Colbert / The Colbert Report

  • Creative Loafing Atlanta

  • Jesse “The Body” Ventura

  • Dr. Slutty Poppins

The rest of the stuff comes to me in dreams
that I often believe are reality,
97.3% of the statistics I make up,

and sometimes I just lie.

Obama says, "Take time to be a dad"

Seems like John Edwards
and a bunch of other politicians
are trying just a little too hard.

“Hey Leroy,
weren’t you just bitching about
other people posting retreaded
news stories?”

Yeah, but my mom called
me with this joke and told
me to post it to my blog.

"Behold the wonder that is me, for I have written a blog post, come now and bask in my glory" ummmm….. not unless you write something remotely interesting.

I’m reading around blogs today,
and there are a lot of angry people
up on their soap boxes.
Bitching about religion, politicians,
public figures, and everything in
between.
So up I jump on my soapbox now.
Damn it folk,
I don’t want to hear your retreaded
news article that you cut and pasted
from yahoo news or the associated press,
I want to hear about you.
The power of blogging is to tell your story,
you don’t have to give me your name,
or location, or any specific details,
I think the stories of real people are
infinitely more interesting than stories
about celebrities, or public figures
,
which are probably so distorted and
skewed after they have been spun
and interpreted and reinterpreted
that they bear little resemblance
to the truth.

Of course,
that’s just how I feel,
you may think otherwise.
