Lives in Transition and...shark poo.

Jennifer said...

Breasts?

Toby said...

Differing assesments of value. From the value of shark poop to sex to political figures to the economy.

dbp said...

Ecclecticism is not a crime and you, a law professor, should know this!

Justin said...

People who have never been in my kitchen.

The Drill SGT said...

Brain Death?

XWL said...

The Agony and the Ecstasy.

1st Post, Kerry, the agony that would have been a Kerry administration, and the ecstasy of his 2004 failure bringing in the 2008 triumph of The Obama.

2nd Post, the agony of lists, and the ecstasy many right of center bloggers still feel towards Sarah Palin (and even Fred Thompson)

3rd Post, the agony of an ill child, and the ecstasy of believing that God's grace was followed in the situation

4th post, the agony of Paul McCartney's craptacular pop confections of the 70s, and the ecstasy of being a Cassandra (or Shiff) when everyone comes around to agreeing with you

5th post, the agony of remembering a dissolute and profligate sexuality while enjoying a new found ecstasy of religious and sexual purity (personally, I'd prefer the agony, but if Prince enjoys his current circumstances more than his past, who am I to judge?)

6th post, the certain agony of dropping a turd "as thick as your arm" and the ecstasy of the scientists who captured it on film and scooped it up for research (but for a creature that size, 'thick as your arm' doesn't seem so big, hell, I bet Titus will claim in that comment section to have dropped a loaf as thick as his arm once or twice in his day)

7th Post, The agony the media feels about not being able to be quite as open in their veneration of The Obama as they wish, and the ecstasy (I'm thinking a constant 24 hour St. Theresa type orgasm of religious ecstasy for many members of the press) of basking in the glow of The One.

Lem said...

People in various stages of rapture?

Trooper York said...

Two meatballs and a sausage.

SteveR said...

We should all be thankful to God, Democrats, Republicans and all Americans, that John Kerry was not elected president in 2004.

Am I close?

Steve said...

Your shallowness and lack of intellectual depth, as always.

Maguro said...

All-around douchiness?

Crimso said...

Craptacular failures?

Ron said...

Obama's turning into Prince, Prince is putting up his curls in Holy Rollers, and there are really only six posts because John Kerry and shark poo should only count once, unless you really want Shark Poo to be Secretary of State!

Theo Boehm said...

XWL is on to something, as ever, and very elegantly so.

But I would give Occam's Razor a few strokes on the strop and shave it down to "Belief."

Ron said...

We should out for Whale Barf for Secretary of the Treasury, because at least ambergris is worth more than our money!

Dan Karipides said...

Let's see. You mentioned John Kerry, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Barack Obama. I'll go with the Jeopardy-style answer:

"Who are people that should not be trusted with political power?"

Ron said...

Ack! Missing the "hold" between "should" and "out"! M'bad!

dualdiagnosis said...

religious ecstasy.

bill said...

erections.

Eli Blake said...

Obama is smart enough to handle the sharks on the right, while Kerry would not have been?

Incidentally, here is just how sly Obama is:

On Thursday, he interviewed Hillary Clinton and asked her to be his secretary of state (likely coupled with a pledge that she won't run against him in the 2012 primary.) She said she'd think about it.

On Friday, he interviewed Bill Richardson for the same job.

Google "Judas" for how Clinton and her supporters think aobut Richardson.

Bet she takes the job. Bet Richardson gets to spend the next two fun-filled years as Governor of New Mexico (remember he said it was the greatest job in the world shortly after he dropped out of the Presidential race.) Bet Obama has a big crocodile grin when she takes the job.

Barack, the sly old-- well maybe not so old, shark.

Today's blog theme of the day is a variation on a quote by Benjamin Franklin:

“When you're finished changing, you're finished. But even then, the DNA in your poo might fascinate an odd scientist or two.”

Darcy said...

Theme of the day: The media's rather weird - sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever. Enough. Prediction: In the end, bloggers select Democrats.

Daryl said...

It's about champions--people who are said to embody an idea or some kind of greatness--and their followers.

Palladian said...

Sooner or later, everything turns to shit?

AJ Lynch said...

Ann has no classes on Mondays?

ricpic said...

We've already been struck by Obamaberg. Today's theme, whatever it is, amounts to fiddling around on the deck of the Titanic.

Trooper York said...

We would not have so much trouble identifying the theme if it carried a picture ID.

I think ACORN bused the theme in from Milwaukee.

mcg said...

The theme is obviously ME; or, more accurately, me and my wife, who have been married 7 years today.

KLDAVIS said...

People who have never been in Justin's kitchen?

Oh, he beat me to it...

Trooper York said...

Congratulations man. Good stuff. Hope you are taking her out to dinner.

mcg said...

Even better, I'm letting a driver take us to dinner, so we get home in one piece :)

Michael_H said...

The emptiness of my blog world since Michael_H left.

Simon said...

Eli, neither McCain nor Clinton are eligible to be Secretary of State, as we've hashed out in the comments here over the last few days.

Trooper York said...

They always come back.

PatHMV said...

Irrational exuberance

AllenS said...

The theme is all carrots and no onion rings. The world has become a big phalic symbol to you.

Matt Eckert said...

Sarah Palin.

That should be good for about another hundred comments.

Simon said...

MCG, congratulations!

AJ Lynch said...

MCG:

No itches yet?

jdeeripper said...

The runs.

Shawn Levasseur said...

Things Ann read about today on the internet, and toying with the commenters.

AJ Lynch said...

Things beginning with the letter "P":

The Wash Post
Poo
Prince
Poor kid with fatal disease (had to reach on this one)
Peter Schiff
People on the right
Preposterous (anything about John Kerry)

peter hoh said...

People getting excited about all kinds of shit.

Kirby Olson said...

Race, gender, class = rock, paper, scissors.

mcg said...

No itches yet?

Nothing a little ointment can't fix.

Last night I went to watch The Puppies and one of them did a number 2.

It was like Nov 4 all over again.

garage mahal said...

Democrats fucking suck!

garage mahal said...

And Change We Can Believe In means hiring and/or keeping Republicans in charge!

OldGrouchy said...

Either what Mahal said or: "Trolling for Dollars!"

Original George said...

"Is It Just Me, Or Is Everything Shit?"

Actual title of a new book seen today at Barnes Noble, you know, like, on one of the front tables.

Sign o' the times.

Paddy O. said...

EDH said...

Something that all should have learnt by now:

You Don't Poop Where You Eat!

ha ha ha. Garage is such a totally hapless tag whore.

It's almost charming.

Meade said...

Actually, it IS charming. Adorable even.

integrity said...

No theme.

So no, not surely a theme.

Trooper York said...

I think the proper term is tag hag.

Meade said...

Garage Mahal. Because even ineffectual lefty tag hags need love.

ricpic said...

Vicki is about to "kill" the frisbee, rh?

No answer expected or required.

EnigmatiCore said...

Wow, I coulda had a V-8?
