absolutcalm -- I fear the coming of the BLACK CRUSADERS-- who will be the next to feel their wrath???
Everyone on the marketing staff at Popeyes who approved, wrote, directed, and/or produced the Grinning Sambo Shuffle "Love That Chicken" ad campaign.
Tyler Perry, for shamelessly associating his name to every one of his goddawful films, eliminating any suspicion that white people put him up to them.
pooplord -- Why does Interpol just play the same song for 60 minutes on any given album (or 90 minutes at any given show)? And, why the hell do I still like them? Is it the Ethel Merman vocals? The eighth-note driving guitars? The cocaine?
The Ethel Merman vocals.
The one in the middle.
Considering the mood one must be in (or will be thrust into) to appreciate Interpol, listeners do not want to be jarred from tempo to tempo, theme to theme. Interpol is your one-stop-wrist-slashing-shop and they like to do what they do best.
popespydie -- Now that I am back on the West Coast, what will I miss most from the East?
Not the Squirt shortage, that's for sure.

Testing the "256 Characters Worth of Questions" Theory: eideteker -- Spam, Treet, Smeat; what's the best simulated/composite meatstuff?
eideteker -- It always throws me that RosariO Dawson is female. Since she's LatinA, not LatinO, shouldn't she be RosariA?
that's stupid. it's not like all hippos or mosquitoes or cheerios are male just because there's an o at the end. wait, are cheerios male or female? i think female because of the circle and circles usually mean vaginas or boobs.
how come latinos have latinas anyway? if white men are white then shouldn't white women be whime or something? what if it was women who were white and men who were whime. blagk guys or blagk girls? could you be like half whime and half blagk?
what happened to the chick who fell in that well? did she come out all weird? i bet shes' scared of elevators now. i farted in the elevator right before i got off and somebody else got on then. i bet rosaira doesnt' fart on elevators.
shes hot but she has a muppet mouth like penalopy cruze. rachel ray looks like a muppet too. if the muppet show were still on the air she would probably be a guest star.if you play the swedish chef talking backwards what does he say?
eideteker -- willitblend, hotornot, what's the next great website that also asks a questio

jerasue -- In the wake of Sweetest Day, the most obvious Hallmark Holiday of them all, what other made-up, phony holidays will show up on our calendars to make us (me) broke consumers spend more money? Before this year, I honestly had no idea what Sweetest Day was, or that people celebrated it. I had seen it on calendars but assumed it was some British or Canadian thing. Then this year it's all over my friends list. Weird.
Most Awesome Girlfriend Day.
Live & Active Cultures Day (brought to you by Dannon and the Association of Greek Restaurant Owners, or AGRO).
National Pizza Boy Appreciation Day.
subbes -- Wikipedia articles destined to lose their VfD (and, optionally, pithy comments from the VfD page).

renob423 -- think ricky from "18 and life" got paroled yet? it's been a while since THAT CHILD BLEW A CHILD AWAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! - how funny would a midi of that song be? and why are songs in midi always so funny?
Depends on how long a life sentence is wherever he committed the crime. The song was released 18 years ago, but who knows when the murder took place.
Prolly pretty funny, but I wouldn't use it as a ringtone.
Usually because they're unexpected. When you hear a cell phone or a digital watch or something go off, you expect a simple ring or beep, then BLAMMO. Midi.
Um, you only asked 3 questions this week.
pantload -- I'm considering changing my pseudnym from 'Roger P. Brophy' to 'Steve McNifty'. R.P. Brophy is seeming a little 1991, while Steve McNifty just screams 'Now!' for a Gen-Xer on the go like me. Yes or no?
Stay with Roger Brophy.
Switch to Steve McNifty.
On Metro trains in DC, they did this stupid PSA campaign where they made dumb sniglets about public saftey and Metro courtesy. They're all irritating, mostly because they're too benign. Which of the following should be added to increase efficacy?
