I am lucky to live in such a time.
Satire is under fire constantly. First it was the Danes and the Muslims, which personally I don't feel was TOO much of a battle for satire. Satire requires a critical idea AND humor. Not just a bomb-wearing prophet.
Now, a battle much less covered... yet I feel it is more important. The battle of Scientology.
Matt Stone and Trey Parker made fun of Scientology on South Park. Isaac Hayes (voice of the beloved Chef), after definitively telling people on a local radio program it could not be taken seriously, quit. Chef died a horrible horrible death. And is now voiced as Darth Chef.
So this cult told Isaac Hayes to quit? Or did he quit on his own volition? What is up with this cult that won't take any sort of humor? If Scientology is made fun of, apparently it's a Communist conspiracy in the media. Remember, children, anyone who can't laugh at a joke, even at one's own expense, has problems.
Now, quickly some people have been attacking Christianity as a cult too. But Christianity is nothing like Scientology. We took that Queen Spider Rules the Vatican joke...
We'll just leave it at this:
Kyle: Do you have any idea how retarded that sounds?
Super Adventure Club Leader: Is it any more retarded than the idea of God sending his Son to die for his sins? Is it any more retarded than Buddha sitting beneath a tree for twenty years?
Stan: Yeah. It's way, way more retarded.

As seen on HBO's "Sex and The City"
This classic vibrator is a womans best friend...
The Jack Rabbit Vibrator is a dual control multi-speed vibrating
and rotating 7 1/2" x 1 1/2" Vibrator.
Made of a bright pink, pliant jelly, the tip is realistically sculpted.
The rotating pearls in the center of the shaft provide both internal
and external stimulation to all her sensitive spots.
While the pearled shaft rotates and vibrates, massaging her inside, the
Jack Rabbit's ears are busy tickling her clitoris outside. The shaft and
stimulator are controlled separately, so she can customize her experience every time.
Jack Rabbit Vibrator Features:
Dual Control Multi-Speed Vibrator
Rabbit Ears for External Clitoral Stimulation
The Jack Rabbit is 7 1/2 inches long x 1 1/2 inches in diameter

I just discovered Airplane II on Comedy Central... and it's AWFUL so far.
HOWEVER, when the woman with a baby in a crib is told she can only have one carry-on... and she kisses and hands over her baby without thought... I admit I laughed a lot.

Are you ready for Friday?
Anyone else hear this? I laughed.
No sore loser
Annie Proulx is no fan of Hollywood.
The Pulitzer-Prize winning author of “Brokeback Mountain” has bashed the “segregated” and “out of touch” community that passed over the film, and instead gave the best picture Oscar to “Crash” — a film about race relations.
“Roughly 6,000 film industry voters, most in the Los Angeles area, many living cloistered lives behind wrought-iron gates or in deluxe rest homes, out of touch not only with the shifting larger culture and the yeasty ferment that is America these days, but also out of touch with their own segregated city, decide which films are good,” Proulx wrote in an essay for the London Guardian. “And rumor has it that Lions Gate inundated the academy voters with DVD copies of ‘Trash’ — excuse me, ‘Crash’ — a few weeks before the ballot deadline. Next year we can look to the awards for controversial themes on the punishment of adulterers with a branding iron in the shape of the letter A, runaway slaves, and the debate over free silver.”
From MSNBC, By Jeannette Walls, Kevin Federline threatens to take it all off / Plus: Is ‘Brokeback Mountain’ author a sore loser?
Finding out more about my family... I now have a pretty definitive proof I have English blood as well as Irish: my Irish family's name Adamson (a very English last name) came from a town in Ireland that had an English garrison. Who knows how removed I am from it?
Goddamnit, I guess I bleed orange as well as green!
Another story from my life: my great grandfather (Adamson) was the county assessor in Kenosha County (Wisconsin). He wasn't exactly a socialist, though he was supposedly extremely popular due to the aid he lent people in need.
My great grandfather also was popular because everyone thought he was one of theirs (nice ploy for a politician). My grandfather told my mom, "The Swedes thought he was a Swede, and the Irish knew damn well he was Irish."
Also, apparently, he was English, too, at some point.

Continuing St. Paddy's Week in Chicago:

This. Will. Be. The. Best. Game. Ever. Period.

Real-Life Simpsons Intro
Pure and utter awesome.
Mmmm, Chicago's St. Paddy's Day Parade was a success!
However, I should mention a few things about Mardi Gras in New Orleans... several people disagreed with me when I said this would be the biggest Mardi Gras in years... and I was right. Some things to mention:
A man who sat on his roof during the flooding... with nothing but a bunch of Gatorade and a shotgun.
"We'll have a Mardi Gras even if we have to take 'floats' literally."
A man dressed in a Mardi Gras costume: a 2000-pound sandbag.
A sign that said "KATRINA, COME BACK, YOU BITCH!"
And back to St. Paddy's Day... a man offered a girl standing next to me a joint for a green bead necklace. He later hugged my dad when he (my dad) gave him a shamrock sticker.
Erin Go Bragh!
Due to my roving nature involving the Internet (as well as a binge since I just got back from Florida), I decided I had to tell this story.
Ash Wednesday, I was laughing uncontrollably afterwards. I had come up with the most AMAZING idea:
An eighth pound of fisher-of-men goodness in a bun!
However, my bubble was burst: I found this the VERY NEXT DAY:
(However, the movie isn't on the site anymore... you can find the movie here.)
P.S. Since you guys have waited so patiently for the week, I'll have some goodness left for you in the next few days (hopefully).

The EQ GMs could turn on the full XYZ axis and FLY! (Well, these guys prolly can too, they just didn't show it).
This all kinda makes me think about the Agents and Neo in The Matrix.
Here's some good ol' Star Wars-fashioned fun.

By the way, I'm debating a new comment system. HaloScan wipes comments, and I like comments. So, possibly move to blogger's official one?
