Audible Althouse #78.

Time to catch up once again with Audible Althouse: it's a podcast of the odd last few days on a blog called Althouse.

Things are not what they seem. How do you know what you're looking at? There were those "Aqua Teen Hunger Strike" non-bombs that freaked out Boston, those polar bears not really stranded on an ice floe not necessarily caused by global warming, and the 29-year-old guy who posed as a 12-year-old to attend school and do sleepovers with kids who thought they found a friend. Are you going to believe your own eyes?

You can stream it right through your computer here.

But all the cute animals have subscribed on iTunes:
Ann Althouse - Audible Althouse

This podcast is dedicated to the Althouse blog historian, Ruth Anne Adams.

Aqua Teen Hunger FORCE, not "strike" The error is excusable when you consider that Master Shake was omnipresent at Cindy Sheehan's hunger strike... But frankly, I wouldn't watch a TV show based on anthropomorphicized fast food items singing praises of the Nazi death machine (what better way, Gandhi asked, could Jews prove their moral righteousness, than to limply submit to the Nazi extermination campaign?) I think it's a better political statement to eat a hamburger than set out on a hunger strike.
LOL. But I think Hunger Strike is better, because of the double meaning. Are they on strike or are they striking out? Frankly, if I was a food item, I'd favor hunger strikes. Why are cartoon food items always happy about getting eaten?

Wow, today's Ruth Anne's lucky day. First I mention her as the inspiration for my John Bouvier Kennedy Schlossberg post; now, Ann dedicates a podcast to her!

Ruth Anne, when you're good, you're good. Congrats! :)

Cheers,
Victoria

Nude is hilarious!

Nudes!

What do nudes do anyway?

They do things like this.

Or maybe this...

You're right, nudes don't do anything!
