In his address to America about the execution of Bin Laden, Obama carefully explained the details of the mission. Although the majority of Americans were pleased with the results, there were many different opinions as to the political points woven into the speech.
Rather than exhaust many written words as to my own personal reaction to the address, I find it more amusing to rely on Ed Helms' portrayal to convey my initial reaction the the Obama address. (Remember to mute my music playlist on the left sidebar."

Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted that he fathered a child with his maid. The maid’s husband became suspicious when he realized she was the first maid to make one million dollars a year. Arnold kept this secret for more than 10 years. He did it by moving the woman and child into an apartment right down the street from the Pakistani military academy. I guess "love child" is a nicer term than "OK-Maria's-asleep child."
Can anyone possibly explain why Rosland Capital, a gold investment firm, would hire convicted felon and all around asshole, G. Gordon Liddy as their spokesman?

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) When I was a baby, I kept a diary. Recently, I was reading it again and it said, "Day 1 - Still tired from the move. Day 2 - Everybody talks to me like I'm an idiot." 2) When I was a little kid, we had a sand box. It was a quicksand box. I was an only child...eventually. 3) When I was a little older, my grandfather asked me how old I was. I said, "Five." He said, "When I was your age, I was six."
4) When I was seven, I remember asking my Mom about where my siblings and I came from. She said, "Curiosity killed the cat." I wasn't sure what she meant, but for a while I was pretty sure that Dad was a suspect. 5) When I was eight, I saw a picture of myself in one of those strollers for twins. I asked Dad why there were two seats in the stroller. He said I used to have a brother, but he didn't obey.....and that's five!

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Four college friends at Florida State were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to go down to Miami to AREA 51 and party. They had a great time. However, after all the partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't wake up until early Monday morning.
Rather than taking the final then, they decided to find their professor after the final and explain to him why they missed it. They explained that they had gone to Miami for the weekend with the plan to come back and study but, unfortunately, they had a flat tire on the way back, didn't have a spare, and couldn't get help for a long time. As a result, they missed the final.
The Professor thought it over and then agreed they could make up the final the following day. The guys were elated and relieved. They studied that night and went in the next day at the time the professor had told them. He placed them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet, and told them to begin.
They looked at the first problem, worth 5 points. It was about the veracity of their flat tire excuse for missing the exam. Each one in his separate room they thought, "Cool, this is going to be easy." Each finished the problem and then turned the page. On the second page, the question for 95 points was, "Which tire?"
Mrs. Jones, the 6th grade science teacher, asked her class, "Which human body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?" No one answered until little Mary stood up and said, "You should not be asking 6th graders a question like that! I'm going to tell my parents, and they will tell the principal, who will then fire you!" With a sneer on her face, she then sat back down.
The teacher asked the question again, "Which body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?" Little Mary's mouth fell open and she said to those around her, "Boy, is she gonna get in big trouble!"
The teacher continued to ignore her and said to the class, "Anybody?" Finally, Billy stood up, looked around nervously and said, "The body part that increases 10 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye." Mrs. Jones said, "Very good, Billy!"
Then she turned to Mary and said, "As for you, young lady, I have just three things to say. Number one, you have a dirty mind. Number two, you didn't read your homework and number 3, one day you are going to be very, very disappointed."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
Annoyed by the professor of anatomy who liked to tell "naughty" stories during class, a group of female students decided that the next time he started to tell one, they would all rise and leave the room in protest. The professor, however, got wind of their scheme just before class the following day, so he bided his time.
Halfway through the lecture, he began, "They say there is quite a shortage of prostitutes in France." The girls looked at one another, arose and started for the door. The professor, with a broad smile, said, "Young ladies, the next plane doesn't leave till tomorrow afternoon."
At the urinal, an accountant, a lawyer and a cowboy were standing side-by-side using the urinal. The accountant finished, zipped up and started washing and literally scrubbing his hands. He used about 20 paper towels before he finished. He turned to the other two men and commented, "I graduated from the University of Michigan and they taught us to be clean."
The lawyer finished, zipped up and quickly wet the tips of his fingers, grabbed one paper towel and commented, "I graduated from the University of California and they taught us to be environmentally conscious."
The cowboy zipped up and as he was walking out the door said, "I graduated from the University of Texas and they taught us not to piss on our hands."
Students in an advanced biology class were taking a mid-term. The last question, worth 70 points or none at all was: "Name seven advantages of mother's milk." The student in question had also partied the night before, and was hard put to think of seven advantages.
The student wrote: 1) It is a perfect formula for the child. 2) It provides immunity against several diseases. 3) It is always available as needed. 4) It is always at the right temperature 5) It is inexpensive. 6) It bonds the child to the mother, and vice versa. Then, the student was stuck. Finally, just before the bell indicating the end of the test was rang, he wrote: 7) It comes in cute containers.
That's it for today my little buttercups. Remember, "I" before "E", except in Budweiser. I'm going to AREA 51 for happy hour and karaoke. Don't worry, I have a great excuse if I miss the Monday morning finals/ Have a great weekend and more on Monday.
