I fully support the right to protest and I was totally against the Wall Street bailouts, but there should be a requirement for protesters to show some semblance of intelligence. The media attention evokes the mating call of the Green-Capped Michiganian Warbler, Michael Moore, whose appearance along with fellow idiot Susan Sarandon, only reinforce my opinions. The only one missing is (Pseudo-Revererend) Al "Have Podium, Will Travel" Sharpton.
After watching some the interviews and responses from some of the "Wall Street Protesters", I'm inclined to think that some of the protesters have the I.Q. of a chimpanzee. The interviews remind me of Jay Leno's "Jaywalking" interviews where it appears that some of the street people's priorities were not directed toward paying attention in school.
But let me not be the one to lead you conclusions. I introduce to you, one "Steven Colbert", host of the "Colbert Report" to give his own views of the Wall Street protests. (Please have patience with the obligatory thirty second commercial. Remember to mute my music playlist located on the left sidebar).
On a side note, let me apologize in advance for one of today's jokes. It made me laugh and I hope it amuses you as well. You'll know which one it is the moment you read it.....

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A busy farmer needed some help with tending to the animals. His mother-in-law offered to spend some time on his farm and being as busy as he was, the farmer had no choice but to accept her offer. A few days later, the farmer's mother-in-law was killed when his mule kicked her.
Thousands of people from town who had heard about the death came to the poor lady's funeral, many that the farmer didn't even know. A minister noticed this, came up to the farmer, and asked him, "Why are there so many people here?" The farmer answered, "Oh, they're not here for the funeral. They want to buy the mule."
A man and his young son are in the drugstore when the son sees the shelf of condoms and asks his father what they are. The dad replies, "Well son, those are condoms and they're for protection when you're having sex." The son then picks up one of the packs and asks why it has three in it. The dad replies, "Those are for high school boys. One for Friday, one for Saturday, and one for Sunday."
The son then picks up one with six condoms and asks, "Why six?" The dad replies, "Well son, those are for college men. Two for Friday, two for Saturday and two for Sunday." The son then notices the 12 pack of condoms and asks the same question. The dad replies, "Son, those are for married men. One for January, one for February, one for March...."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Two robins were sitting in a tree when the first one said, "I'm really hungry, let's fly down and find some lunch." They flew down to the ground and found a nice plot of newly plowed ground that was full of worms. They ate and ate and ate till they could eat no more. The first one said, "I'm so full, I don't think I can fly back up into the tree. The second robin said, "Let's just lay back here and bask in the warm sun."
So they plopped down, basking in the sun. No sooner than they had fallen asleep, when a big fat tomcat came up and gobbled them up. As the cat sat washing his face after his meal, he thought, "I just love Baskin Robins."
A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy a pet that can do everything. The shop owner suggests a faithful dog. The man replies, "Come on, a dog?" The shop owner says, "How about a cat?" The man replies, "No way! A cat certainly can't do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!" The shop owner thinks for a minute, then says, "I've got it! A centipede!" The man says, "A centipede? I can't imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay,I'll try a centipede."
He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, "Clean the kitchen." Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and... it's immaculate! All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away the counter-tops cleaned the appliances sparkling the floor waxed. He's absolutely amazed.
He says to the centipede, "Go clean the living room." Twenty minutes later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed the furniture cleaned and dusted the pillows on the sofa plumped, plants watered. The man thinks to himself, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!"
Next he says to the centipede, "Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper." The centipede walks out the door. 10 minutes later...no centipede. 20 minutes later...no centipede. 30 minutes later...no centipede. By this point the man is wondering what's going on. The centipede should have been back in a couple of minutes. 45 minutes later...still no centipede!
He can't imagine what could have happened. Did the centipede run away? Did it get run over by a car? Where is that centipede? So he goes to the front door, opens it and there's the centipede sitting right outside. The man says, "Hey! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What's the matter?!" The centipede says, "I'm goin'! I'm goin'! I'm just puttin' on my shoes!"
A teacher is explaining biology to her 4th grade students and says, "Human beings are the only animals that stutter." A little girl raises her hand and volunteered, "I had a kitty-cat who stuttered." The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become, asked the girl to describe the incident.
The little girl began, "I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!" The teacher said, :That must've been scary." The little girl said, "It sure was! My kitty raised his back, went 'Fffff, Fffff, Fffff'...and before he could say 'F*ck', the Rottweiler ate him!"
That's it for today my little tweety birds. Remember, the zoo is a place for animals to study the behaviour of human beings. More on Wednesday.
