1. e) All of the above.

What is scary is I see you doing all 4 at the same time. But I never knock anyone who can multitask.

2.a) National pride.

See the president thinks he is holding the flag facing the right direction because it looks it from his side

(FYI the US Military has it stitched backwards on their Uniforms too. I can't wait for the stupid war to be over so I can start making fun of them again.)

3. e) Swimming in a pool filled with urine.

Does anyone else want to punch Phelps, he is a idiot, he was ask how he feels with all these medals around his neck and he responded, "they are heavy".

4. All i can say is http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7355684705344367196&ei=6BCsSP6RKJemrAKc5eD0BA&q=Cowbell&vt=lf&hl=en

Dear Bonita,

I will *never* forgive you for that Deion/Nastia link. The brillo pad sturdy enough to scour those images from my memory has yet to be invented.

Several days later, the following continually cycle through my head:
a) "Mr. Primetime"
b) Identifying everything in a room as AT&T such-and-such
c) "I can smell a father-daughter moment from a mile away"

I curse [some of] your Olympics links.

Gee, I love It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Most underrated comedy ever? I'd say so.

I don't care where you've been and why, Appleblog. I don't care. I don't want to know. I'm just glad you're home! Don't ever leave us again! [weeping hysterically]

Good to have you back. For the record, the correct answers are:

D - Dogs rock, what kind of dog?
B - Okay, I know it's wrong, the better picture would have been the entire team holding up their driver's licenses.
E - I hope, that would be really funny for some reason.
D - I've always figured the sex in Olympic village is just absolutely rampant. Then 13 years and 9 months later, you'd see a little Olympic gymnast who was obviously conceived during the months her mother was in Beijing even though her father had gotten thrown out of China for opening the wrong website at Starbucks.

Who won the caption contest? I was surprised that some of those posts were allowed to stay.

Tossed salad, butter face, hit that arse?

Wow, just wow.
