Clay Aiken and Turkey Baster are gonna be a Dad Open Trackbacks

Suspicions confounded! The news about Clay Aiken impregnating the 50-year-old sister of music producer David Foster (with the sexually ambiguous name of Jaymes) is intriguing not because of the happy announcement, but because of what everybody suspects about Aiken. In any case, I wish Aiken and Foster and their turkey baster all the best luck and blessings in the world. Even if he doesn’t intend to act as a father now, in time, I think Aiken will learn to relish the role.

Open Trackbacks!

The Farm of the Future runs on Mule Power Open Trackbacks

Open Trackbacks. Down in Tennessee, T. R. Raymond is leaving the tractor in the barn and hitching up the tractor rake to a couple of mules to bring in the hay.

“This fuel’s so high, you can’t afford it,” he said. “We can feed these mules cheaper than we can buy fuel. That’s the truth.”

And Danny Raymond says he just likes using the mules around the farm.

“We’ve been using them quite a bit,” he said.

Brother Robert Raymond added, “It’s the way of the future.”

It’s the way of the future.

I’m just saying!

Quote of the Day

From the comments to Robert Novak’s article on the House Democratic Caucus’s sellout of FISA to the trial lawyers, maldain writes:

The for sale sign has been posted out in front of the DNC headquarters since the days of LBJ. And it shouldn’t shock anybody that the incorruptible left is completely corrupt and has been for decades. The poor deluded left wing rank and file are put on the auction block and sold to the highest bidders on a daily basis. It would appear that the democratic party’s attitude about selling human beings hasn’t changed much since the mid 1800’s.

I corrected a few typos. Otherwise, what he said.

Tolkien estate sues New Line Films for Bupkis

Thomas S. Mulligan writes:

The London-based Tolkien Trust said in its complaint, filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, that under a 1969 contract with the studio that held the original rights to the work, the trust and other plaintiffs were entitled to 7.5% of gross receipts, “less certain expenses,” from the films and related products. According to the suit, worldwide grosses from the trilogy have reached nearly $6 billion.

Bupkis is well known as the meaning of a “net percentage” in the movie business. Homonyms include zero, zilch, nil, none, and nix. It’s kind of amazing that bupkis is now the meaning of “gross percentage” in the movie business. On the other hand, “less certain expenses” could be enough to turn gross into net.

What are you giving up for Lent?

Marked now with the cross of ashes I ponder it. As I have already given up caffeine I think what I shall have to give up is verbal fisticuffs on-line and elsewhere. I’m unilaterally disarming my sarcasmocannon, no verbal hostilities until the end of Lent.

What about you?

Was Gore going to Baghdad?

I ask because it snowed in Baghdad for the first time in a hundred years.
