The Worst Mullet Ever to Appear on this Blog

I had other mullets ready to go from the bulging mullet photo file. But I came across this and knew I shouldn't be the only one to suffer sore eyes.

You're welcome.

Justice, American Style

The Senator Larry Craig debacle has been interesting to watch from a distance. The usual backtracking, flip-flopping and denial one gets used to with politicians. But another element has upped the amusement factor for this HUC narrator, and she can't help but share it with you as she types of herself in the third person.

Craig's loyal daughter, Shea Suzanne Howell appeared on ABC in order to tell the world that her Dad is not gay and that he is a wonderful man. Two GUARDIAN readers watched her outpouring of love. And recognized her.

The sent information late Wednesday to the local sheriff (“You would think the Boise police would go ahead and arrest the “stand up” character witness’s Larry had with him Saturday!”) who verified that Howell has an open warrant.

What will happen next in this ongoing idiocy trifecta, no one knows. Not even the players themselves.

UPDATE: He's resigning. Again.

"I guess I'm a fan. Can you imagine wanting to see William Shatner in person?"



The Wombat welcomes you to the end of the week.

Jen has a fever and will is not responsible for the oddness of any of the content to be found here until her fever breaks. She has odd cravings for orange soda and potatoes. She's been playing Neopets when she can stand straight enough to walk.

She's a mess.

And she thinks you're swell.


Hubble Telescope vs. The Lucky Camera

"The object is distorted by the haze most of the time," the inventor of the system, Dr Craig Mackay of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge explained,"but every now and again there are moments when the haze drops and you can see it very clearly."

The Lucky system gathers together all the clear pictures and throws out the distortions to produce images that Dr Mackay believes are the clearest ever images from the ground.

"The images space telescopes produce are of extremely high quality but they are limited to the size of the telescope," Dr Mackay added. "Our techniques can do very well when the telescope is bigger than Hubble and has intrinsically better resolution."

Two images have been published to date. One is of the globular star cluster M13 which is at a distance of 25,000 light-years. (the mostly orange image on the top right)

Stars that are as little as one light-day apart can be differentiated in the picture.

The other shows very fine detail in the Cat's Eye Nebula (NGC6543). (the image to the left)

I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to post something with the word "globular" so prevalent in the text.


Send in the Clowns when the KKK Comes a' Knockin'

“White Power!” the Nazi’s shouted.

“White Flour?” the clowns yelled back running in circles throwing flour in the air as they raised letters that spelled “White Flour”.

“White Power!” the Nazi’s shouted.

“White flowers?” the clowns cheers and threw white flowers in the air and danced about merrily.

“White Power!” the Nazi’s shouted.

"Ohhhhhh,” the clowns yelled, “Tight Shower!” as they held a solar shower in the air and crowded under it.

“White Power!” the Nazi's screamed hoarsely.

Ohhhhh…,” the women clowns said. “Now we understand…”

WIFE POWER!” they yelled as they hoasted the appropriate letters up in the air then clamored about about merrily chanting “WIFE POWER! WIFE POWER! WIFE POWER!”

This had been preceded by Alex Linder, the founder of VNN and the lead organizer of the rally, kicking off events by rushing the clowns in a fit of rage. He was arrested by Knoxville police who dropped him to the ground when he resisted.

The 100th ARA (Anti Racist Action) clown block taught them all about white face power.

Birds Feed

A local security guard near a lake in Hangzhou, China discovered the generosity of spirit of the local black swan population. At 10 every morning, nine swans climb atop a raft and begin 'beaking' the food to the hungry swarm of orange.
