The Social Poets: Late Nite Jokes Roundup: Comics Mock 2012 Politics, Faster Load


The Social Poets: Late Nite Jokes Roundup: Comics Mock 2012 Politics, Faster Load:

From Denny: Start off your work week laughs with America's favorite comics. These are all their best jokes for September 2011.

They cover everything from Labor Day, former VP Dick Cheney's new book (Fabrication of Outrageous Lies), President Obama and Speaker Boehner arguing over when the president can give a speech because it might interfere with a lame GOP debate or American football.

We all know which one of those events is most important. :)

The GOP candidates and their strange debates where the audience cheers how many people were executed in Texas this year is a slam dunk for the comics. And the Independents are edging farther and farther away from the GOP, yet, strangely enough, not moving toward Obama and the Democrats either.

Can this be the year ol' Ralph Nader finally succeeds if he makes his bid for the presidency?

Not to be missed are the continuing Sarah Palin jokes. For someone who insists upon being so one-dimensional it sure is amazing just how jokes are manufactured about her.

18 Funny Coffee Splash Photos



From Denny:  Check out the best of the amusing coffee splash photos over at flickr.  Many are a first time effort from the photographers.

Ever since flickr created galleries to stash your favorites by themes and in groups of a manageable 18, I've been having fun on a regular basis.  Try it sometime and get your own Visual Vacation to rest your tired brain at the end of a work week.  :)  Enjoy!

Dennys Art Sanctuary: Animation Art: Origins By Robert Showalter




Dennys Art Sanctuary: Animation Art: Origins By Robert Showalter:

From Denny: "Origins" is a delightful little animation project. It addresses the universal questions of "Where do we come from?" and "Where do I belong?"

This tiny and charming robot begins his search as a train passes by, marked with the exact same logo as he sports on his metal chest. That point of familiarity prompts him to begin his journey of discovery to search for his origins. What he finds and what he decides I will leave for you to discover. :)

The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart, Colbert React to Republican Debates




The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart, Colbert React to Republican Debates: From Denny: Only Jon Stewart could dissect this crazy GOP line-up, revealing true agendas. When he goes after Michele Bachmann for her idea of mothering it sure is a left field what she says.

You expect her to comment on how raising five biological children and 23 foster children she would opine upon parenting skills in the area of how they needed lots of love and daily structure. Nope. What she says is "children need jobs." No kidding.

What I found most disheartening about her quote about children of poverty - from a over a year ago - is when she commented about how the poor should raise themselves up on their own, without government help - ever.

"Hunger is a great motivator." From that day forward I always wondered if she had starved any of those foster children to force them to do what she demanded.

The Social Poets: 9-11 Stories Roundup: How Is America 10 Years Later?

The Social Poets: 9-11 Stories Roundup: How Is America 10 Years Later?:

From Denny: Every year when this date comes we all pause and remember those whose lives were taken quickly and horribly. We mourn for those left behind and pray for them to find their way in life.

For the youngest generation this event is a moment seared upon their memory, remembering where they were when America was struck by terrorism and the Twin Towers fell. Included here is an article of how to talk to children about the attack.

Not all associated with this terrible event is sadness, despair and sorrow. Whether survivors, or families and friends of the fallen, many have discovered the well of strength within themselves. Others have started charities and foundations to honor not the dead but the lives of the victims, promoting their life philosophies and initiatives. Stories of wonderful inspiring people have been shared in the news and memorials for the world to remember.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Robber Dressed as Gumby Almost Arrested For The Fumbles




Sept. 5 - San Diego Police Dept./AP

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Robber Dressed as Gumby Almost Arrested For The Fumbles:

From Denny:  Talk about the bumbling robber and hilariously funny. This silly guy goes into a San Diego 7-Eleven gas station store to rob them and the clerk refused to take him seriously. (Full story here.)

The Gumby Robber asked first for Marlboro cigarettes.  The clerk thought it was a prank and he had been punked. 

He didn't know who the 1950's Gumby cartoon character was and described Gumby to police later as "a weird greenish version of Spongebob Square Pants."

The clerk told the robber, "I don't have time for this.  I'm cleaning right now."
