I'm not a Twitterer or a Facebooker, but "Barack Obama Sent Somali Pirates a Trio of Snipers" is funny as hell. It is "100 days of Obama's Facebook news feed."

From the Really, Really Bad Names Department, I give you AcipHex.

Despite the weirdo capitalization, the TV commercials make it clear that the name is pronounced just like "ass-effects."

I notice the pharma company is in Tokyo. English is clearly not the first language of AcipHex's makers. One of their company names is also somewhat precarious, "PriCara."

So an email was sent out at work today about a nearby road closure. The author meant to say that the road is being closed "for obvious safety reasons," but instead wrote "for oblivious safety reasons." That made my day.

I love that! It captures the Apple loyalist mentality.

This story was emailed to me by my nephew:

I was a very happy man. My wonderful girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. There was only one little thing bothering me: It was her beautiful younger sister.

My prospective sister-in-law was twenty-two, wore very tight miniskirts, and generally was bra-less. She would regularly bend down when she was near me, and I always got more than a nice view. It had to be deliberate. Because she never did it when she was near anyone else.

One day her 'little' sister called and asked me to come over to check the wedding invitations. She was alone when I arrived, and she whispered to me that she had feelings and desires for me that she couldn't overcome. She told me that she wanted me just once before I got married and committed my life to her sister. Well, I was in total shock, and couldn't say a word. She said, 'I'm going upstairs to my bedroom, and if you want one last wild fling, just come up and get me.' I was stunned and frozen in shock as I watched her go up the stairs. I stood there for a moment, then turned and made a beeline straight to the front door. I opened the door, and headed straight towards my car. Lo and behold, my entire future family was standing outside, all clapping!

With tears in his eyes, my father-in-law hugged me and said, 'We are very happy that you have passed our little test. We couldn't ask for a better man for our daughter. Welcome to the family.'

And the moral of this story is: Always keep your condoms in your car.

Now that's funny!

I would rather face a cold reality than delude myself with comforting fantasies.

This was my favorite: Death Star
An unshielded exhaust port leading directly to the central reactor? Really?

Note to the Emperor: Someone on your Death Star design staff is in the pay of Rebel forces. Oh, right, you can't get the memo because someone threw you down a huge exposed shaft in your Death Star throne room.
