“Well,” Chirac wanted to know, “how much does a brain cost? The doctor scratched his chin, glanced at Chirac and said “For a French brain, $500,000. For an American brain, $200,000.”
Now, Chirac didn’t know what tuh think ’bout thet. Archin’ an eyebrow he asked “Why the difference in price between French brains and American brains?”
“Standard pricing practice,” said the doctor, blowin’ into his stethoscope. “American brains have to be marked down because they’ve actually been used.”
I’ve long wondered where all the non-Supreme Court Republican votes come from. I think we got the honey-pot in Tullahoma.
It gets pretty good towards the end,
Crabbyism: The French still need more proof that Michael Jackson has had plastic surgery.
As Matt Ray said, “what the fuck is wrong with our country?”
“Hey, Brendon, how come the team never carried me off the field?”
“We tried, but you were too big.”
“I mean…too drunk.”
“Yes. Yes I was. But, I’ll tell you something, Brendon, I am everyday. That doesn’t mean don’t carry me off the field.”
“You know who ends up the looser, though, on the whole: the public. Because, they see the product, and the product is not there.”

Houston had the cheapest average gasoline price, with the cost down 2.9 cents to $1.567 a gallon.

Usually, the old <META name=”keywords”/> HTML tag is used to describe what the page you’re looking at is about. Search engines (supposedly) use them for better indexing too. This META block may be old, but it’s interesting to see what keywords the White House associates itself with. Most of the Clinton Whitehouse.gov pages don’t seem to have the META tag.
I have to look through a whole passel of inline (in Java code) SQL this afternoon to make sure a DB change doesn’t break things. It’s driving me nutty, all those
"+'s and whatnot. Could be worse, I suppose, I could be a pig

I just used Texas DPS’s on-line driver’s license renewal service. It’s so awesome! You just login, fill out your information, throw in your credit card number, and — WHAM-BAM! — they mail you your new drivers license in 25-30 days.
