Ich Bin Ein Ballooner?

6 Dec

Is it just me, or does that balloon look like it’s giving the Nazi salute? I mean, look at it. Take away the peppermint stick and it’s basically saying, “Heil Christmas!” Yes, I know this sort of thing was a minor plot point on Monday night’s Studio 60, so Aaron Sorkin sorta beat me to the punch, but every time I walk by the balloons in front of the Babcock Street fire station they make me wonder. And considering last year the balloons in front of the station bore a striking resemblance to George W. Bush, I’m starting to wonder if maybe firemen shouldn’t be picking their own holiday decorations. (And yes, I’m saying this with tongue firmly in cheek.)

Insert Joke Here

6 Dec

By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard the story about the woman aboard an American Airlines flight who lit a match on her plane to conceal a really smelly fart, thus forcing the plane to make an emergency landing.

The jokes write themselves, but one of my favorites was on Fox 25 this morning, and had to do with the price of gas going sky high.

Hee hee.

Anyway, if you haven’t yet heard the story, here’s a link.
