On with the New Year's hope and dreams of consistant posting, renewed vitality for Project 365 and just getting things done in general. But first... a funny video...


you say whats the harm?

I say dont get me started! Its finals week and I barely have time to post a cartoon. Good things are coming though...


...ahhh Fairbanks....

I hate to stereotype, but I hear this is fairly representative... make sure to watch to the end...



I hate this because its critical of something I love (ah hem, lurve) but its soo funny how easy we ('we' in the sense of the TV watching world, ps. your looking at a screen right now... get over it!) all get sucked into formulated shows, no matter how smart they seem or make you think you are.

Funny, she looks like a good car doesnt she? Its like you cant even tell the engine is blown...


To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.

(You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:


1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,'

'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize'

will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.' Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up 'vocabulary').


2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ''like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u'' and the elimination of '-ize.'


3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.


4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist,then you're not ready to shoot grouse.


5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.


6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of

conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you

understand the British sense of humour.


7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.


8. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.


9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth

- see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.


10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialogue in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.


11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).


12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.


13. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.


14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).


15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

God Save the Queen! foreigner

(yeah, this is just funny! Thanks Sarah!!!)

Election party

Hypothesis: There's no point in staying sober no matter which way it goes.

Theory behind the hypothesis: booze = good. plus, if you mention crab legs + free you will be inundated with geologists

Obama wins a state - drink the tequila
McCain wins a state - drink the jagermeister
The Republicans take the 'Bible belt' - drink the Jack Daniels
McCain wins - commit suicide by drinking the bottle of Stroh (see Strohface posts)


Strohface : Michelle

Stroh: For over 170 years STROH branded spirits and liqueurs have stood for outstanding quality, exceptional strength and taste. In 1832 Sebastian Stroh started the unrivalled Austrian story of success - STROH is today available in over 30 countries worldwide and is appreciated for it’s particular aroma and great taste. The brand STROH represents Austrian art and quality of life.

BULLSHIT! Stroh should only be used to self medicate for throat cancer and when you run out of that acid shit for alien blood!

Strohface: stupid faces you make while someone takes pictures of you drinking stroh and not telling you its the most terrible thing you'll ever put in your mouth (well for most of us, not including my botched attempt at patchouli absinthe, thats another story)
