Oddly enough, neither gate agent nor stewardess nor "clever" conference attendee made the Lost Wages joke last week.
absolutcalm -- I'm about to graduate college. Does "Pirate" seem like a good career choice these days?
Better than finance, that's for sure.
Let's just hope some of those fartknockers who participate in Talk Like A Pirate Day ship themselves off to Somalia and try their luck talking like pirates.
They say most pirates during the Bluebeard era lived only about 3 months after embarking on their careers. I bet that's gone up significantly since then, making the job somewhat more enticing. And drinking water technology has certainly improved.
Expect a new Discovery Channel show ala The Deadliest Catch about piracy to show up in the Fall '09 lineup.

Best not-Seinfeld animated gif available through a Google image search of the phrase seinfeld animated gif (note: safe search not on for this, so while these gifs are SFW, their parent pages may not be):
bookgrrrl -- Do those white flowered trees all smell like semen, or is that just me? I don't think you smell like semen. It's probably the flowers.
They pretty much are generating semen. Wouldn't it be great if Hayfever were renamed Jizfever?
If they do, I've been whiffing on some funky spunk.
I'm not as familiar with the smell of semen as I am with the taste, and I've never swallowed one of those white flowers.
Sure glad there aren't any brown flowered trees in my yard.
eideteker -- What's the best TV show I'm not watching?
Pretty much everything I watch the rest of the world watches too.
For the good of the order, please suggest the best little-known TV show you are watching:
renob423 -- what hotel are you staying at in vegas? I was at the Flamingo. what hotel WOULD you stay at if you had that kind of money? Vegas only:
renob423 -- what hotel would you NEVER stay at even if the special was something like $5 a night? Again, Vegas Only: will you buy me a t shirt and mail it to me for my birthday next week I will, but not from Vegas - I didn't get this in time. Email me your address and size.
Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon.
The Imperial Palace.
Ted Allen is riding the FoodTV payroll lately like a drunk on a mechanical bull. Which is great, I enjoy watching the guy - as much of a _________ that he is, he's a lovable _________.
In this economy, why does it seem like journalists believe they need to start every question with "in this economy"?
It makes them seem like they're asking a serious question, even if it's really about a Kardashian.
This is a method of reverse-psychology to get the public so damned sick of hearing everything has to do with the economy that they'll start getting skeptical and start believing in the economy again.
It's less desperate sounding than opening your questions with "OH GOD PLEASE WATCH THIS! DON'T READ THE INTERNET! IT'S KILLING MY CHILDREN!"
Somebody in the teleprompter typing pool thought it would be funny to do a Find and Replace for "well," with "in this economy".
