Fred Thompson stares down Mexico.

These are too funny not to post.  I found this little sampling in a Star-Telgram article.  This factoids are in the ‘Chuck Norris’ spirit of odd facts.  Check at the article and the site (linked below). 

Here are just a few little-known facts about Fred Thompson:

Every night, Osama bin Laden checks under his bed for Fred Thompson.

Though Fred Thompson left the Senate in 2003, Harry Reid still hasn’t stopped wetting his pants.

Fred Thompson once ended a filibuster by ripping out a senator’s heart and showing it to him before he died.

Only two things can kill Superman: Kryptonite and Fred Thompson.

Fred Thompson once stood on our south border and glared at Mexico. There was no illegal immigration for a month.

Fred Thompson vows not only to win in Iraq but also to forcefully free Vietnam from communism, thus giving America a perfect win/loss record for wars again.

These are just a few of the “Fred Thompson Facts” posted on the conservative humor site IMAO ( www.imao.us) in March.

As the old proverb goes, there’s truth in jest.

Funniest Post of the Day!

2008 Presidential Debates: Mike Gravel

The reaction to Gravel’s performance has overwhelmed his campaign. His aides said they got more requests for interviews yesterday than in the first 12 months of the campaign.
Gravel’s website could not handle the flood of hits after the debate, they said. Bloggers complained that they were ready to donate money but were unable to get into the website .
“He started out with less money than the cost of a John Edwards haircut,” said Elliott Jacobson, Gravel’s national finance director.
Gravel told reporters after the debate: “We stayed in a $55 motel. I’ll hitchhike to the next debate if I have to.”

Timberlake Fed Up With Gossip Magazines

Hollywood types are such bogus posers.  Look here…

Justin Timberlake blames celebrity magazines for turning his personal life into juicy gossip fodder. “I despise what they do,” the 26-year- old singer tells Details magazine in an interview in its April issue. Timberlake Fed Up With Gossip Magazines

NEW YORK (AP) – Justin Timberlake blames celebrity magazines for turning his personal life into juicy gossip fodder. “I despise what they do,” the 26-year- old singer tells Details magazine in an interview in its April issue. “They create soap operas out of people’s lives. … It’s a spin game, and I choose not to take part in it.” That includes not dishing any dirt about former girlfriends Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz.

“I would never say anything bad about anyone. I love a lot of those people,” says Timberlake, whose latest album is “FutureSex/LoveSounds.”

Diaz and Timberlake, who had dated since 2003, confirmed their split in January. Timberlake’s relationship with Spears ended in 2002. They were a high-profile couple for three years.

Timberlake, a former member of boy bandN Sync, released his debut solo album, “Justified,” in 2002. The album won a Grammy Award.

“I tried so hard to be an R&B artist and it was the pop album of the year. … That’s the last thing I wanted,” Timberlake says. “But I was like, `So everyone considers me a pop artist? … I’m going to do whatever I want to do.'”

Timberlake took home a trophy as favorite male singer Saturday night in the raucous, slime-drenched 20th Annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on Viacom International Inc.’s Nickelodeon channel.

The show began with Timberlake descending from the ceiling on a large orange Nickelodeon blimp and breaking into a Broadway show tune in which he taunted the audience, saying he was too famous to be slimed.

“You’ll never get a drop of slime on old J.T.,” he sang.

Google Fools: Web Service Through Toilet

Everyone loves a good gag.  Hat’s off to the evil empire, Google for a good laugher over the weekend.  The clock has started on how long it will take for some schmuck to sue because he spent all weekend with his head is the crapper trying to surf porn.

Google Fools: Web Service Through Toilet – Forbes.com

Presiding over a company with a market value of $143 billion apparently gives Silicon Valley’s most famous billionaires a good sense of humor – and a case of corporate potty mouth. Senior executives at Google Inc. launched their annual April Fools’ Day prank Sunday, posting a link on the company’s home page to a site offering consumers free high-speed wireless Internet through their home plumbing systems.

Code-named “Dark Porcelain,” Google (nasdaq: GOOG news people ) said its “Toilet Internet Service Provider” (TiSP) works with Microsoft Corp. (nasdaq: MSFT news people )’s new Windows Vista operating system. But sorry – septic tanks are incompatible with the system’s requirements.

The gag included a mock press release quoting Google co-founder and president Larry Page, a step-by-step online installation manual, and a scatological selection of Frequently Asked Questions. On some Google sites, the company’s official logo – a multicolored “Google” that changes according to the season and on holidays – substituted a commode for the second “g.”

“There’s actually a thriving little underground community that’s been studying this exact solution for a long time,” Page said in the facetious statement. “And today our Toilet ISP team is pleased to be leading the way through the sewers, up out of your toilet and – splat – right onto your PC.”

The Story of Two Houses

Thanks triple6!!!

LOOK OVER THE DESCRIPTIONS OF THE FOLLOWING TWO HOUSES AND SEE IF YOU CAN TELL WHICH BELONGS TO AN ENVIRONMENTALIST.

HOUSE # 1:

A 20-room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house all heated by gas. In ONE MONTH ALONE this mansion consumes more energy than the average American household in an ENTIRE YEAR. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2,400.00 per month. In natural gas alone (which last time we checked was a fossil fuel), this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not in a northern or Midwestern “snow belt,” either. It’s in the South.

HOUSE # 2:

Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university, this house incorporates every “green” feature current home construction can provide. The house contains only 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on arid high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house
holds geothermal heat pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats the house in winter and cools it in summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas, and it consumes 25% of the electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Flowers and shrubs native to the area blend the property into the surrounding rural landscape.

HOUSE # 1 (20 room energy guzzling mansion) is outside of Nashville, Tennessee. It is the abode of that renowned environmentalist (and filmmaker) Al Gore.

HOUSE # 2 (model eco-friendly house) is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas. Also known as “the Texas White House,” it is the private residence of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.

So whose house is gentler on the environment? Yet another story you WON’T hear on CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC or read about in the New York Times or the WashingtonPost. Indeed, for Mr. Gore, it’s truly “an inconvenient truth.”

Mel Goes Ballistic — Tells professor to “F@ck Off!”

Mel Goes Ballistic — “Lady, F**k Off!” – TMZ.com

TMZ has learned Mel Gibson exploded in anger last night on a college campus after an expert on Mayan culture accussed him of racially stereotyping the Mayans in the movie “Apocalypto.”
Mel Gibson
It happened last night at Cal State University at Northridge in the San Fernando Valley. Gibson was speaking to a film class about his movies, and several members of the Mayan community came to hear the famous director.

After Gibson’s presentation, the crowd was allowed to ask questions. Alicia Estrada, an Assistant Professor of Central American Studies at CSUN, challenged Gibson, asking him if he had read about the Mayan culture before shooting the controversial film. Gibson said he had.
Mel Gibson
Estrada persisted, stating that representations in the movie that the Mayans engaged in sacrificial ceremonies and had bloodthirsty tendencies were both wrong and racist. Estrada and others tell TMZ that Gibson exploded in anger, responding, “Lady, F**k off.”
Mel Gibson
We’re told Gibson also became extremely angry when members of the Mayan community protested on how they were portrayed in the film. The emotional Mayan members were escorted out of the room, and we’re told Gibson screamed a parting shot — “Make your own movie!”

UPDATE: Gibson’s publicist, Alan Nierob, told TMZ, “This person was a heckler who was rude and disrupted the event, so much so that the event organizers had to escort her out.” For the record, Nierob, not Howard Rubenstein, reps Gibson.
