Fock Me Amadeus
File this under, "Yep. That'll do it Pokes!" From FARK, dated 02/03:

[OSU] Student Government Association senators Derek Davies and Paul Goeringer...are co-authors of an SGA (Student Government Association) recommendation that proposes to change the name of Oklahoma State University to The Oklahoma State University...

...Davies, an agricultural economics junior, said, "Well, we were all sitting around trying to think of ways to make OSU more prestigious and help us compete nationally better. We then looked at the examples of Ohio State and Penn State with their names while we were at an agricultural conference and thought that we could do that at OSU in order to put us more in the national light."
That's almost as brilliant as just renaming their stadium to Boone Pickens Stadium.

Of course, that would be even more amusing if OU hadn't renamed theirs "The Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium". Rock the Fock!

You make me feel like dancing
Blender has named the 50 worst artists in music history. The only one that left me scratching my head and saying "huh?" was The Doors at #37. C'mon people. You gave up a spot on the list for Leo Sayer for that? Other than said-Doors CD -- here are the CDs I've purchased or owned by other bands on the list:

  1. Tin Machine - Tin Machine - at #12 (Bowie in the $1.99 bin ain't all bad...ok, maybe this time it is)
  2. Richard Marx - Richard Marx - at #30 (it was the best of times, it was the worst of times)
  3. Live - Throwing Copper and Mental Jewelry - at #34 (it's a never-ending debate in this household, I can't help myself and Todd cringes every time)
  4. Blind Melon - Soup - at #40 (Galaxie is one of my all-time favorite songs so deal with it)
  5. The Spin Doctors - Pocket Full of Kryptonite - at #46 (you show me the early 90s college student without a copy, or a copy of a copy of this CD, or a roommate sans one of the above, and I'll call you a freakin' liar)
  6. Toad the Wet Sprocket - Fear - at #49 (actually I didn't buy this one, it was a gift from someone that knew I liked "All I Want")

If you want my body, and you think I'm sexy...
This has to be one of the most amusing things I've seen in a long, long time...the female dress code at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University. Keep clicking the "next slide" link at the top for examples with mannequins that demonstrate what is modest and immodest.

I lived at Oklahoma Baptist University for a summer session during high school, and we didn't have a dress code like that! Even my high school (without air conditioning, mind you) wouldn't allow us to wear shorts -- hey, it was the buckle of the Bible Belt in Oklahoma -- but we could wear capri pants and mini skirts. One of the main rules seems to be that dresses and skirts cover the knees. I would like to personally invite the Dean to come shopping with me as a 5'10" woman when shorter skirts are in fashion. What hits your knees, hits my thighs. Unless of course I buy a size 16 so it hangs on my lower hips instead of around my waistline...and we can't have ass-crack showing, now can we? That might lead others into temptation.

Whoo boy! I'm all for dressing professional and not Aguilera. Especially at a religious institution. But c'mon... (Link courtesy of FARK.com.)

Kill. Your. Television.
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life. Electric word "life", it means forever and that's a mighty long time. But I'm here to tell you, there's something else. The after-world. A world of never ending happiness. You can always see the sun -- day or night.

  1. An amusing summary of last night's American Idol.
  2. Just think how many Atari systems could have been sold if they paired with Playboy. Or if that's not your style, try Playmate strip-poker and strip-tac-toe. (games obviously not work-safe)
  3. So many jokes...so little time...

  4. "The villains in the [Matrix Reloaded] flick are a pair of white-skinned, white-haired, red-eyed twins, and groups representing albinos say the movie unfairly stereotypes pigment-challenged individuals. 'They’re not albinos,' a Warner Bros. rep snapped. They’re dead...'"
  5. Finally a Survivor All-Star Series -- just in time for none of us to care.
  6. Trista and Ryan say screw "honest and sacred" when a four-part ABC special on their wedding is involved. But at least we no longer have to ask, "What about Bob?"

I think about the only person on the planet right now more stupid than Mike Price trashing a $10-million dollar deal at one of the best college football schools in the country thanks to this stripper named "Destiny" (ironic, no?) -- is Catherine Zeta-Jones for smoking while pregnant (and getting busted on camera for it). I guess the bitch was ready and deserving as well... Money may buy you happiness, but it obviously doesn't buy you a clue. If Zeta had kept her trap shut instead of filing yet another tabloid-lawsuit, most of us would have never known.

I'm givin' him somethin' he can feel
Todd and I both worked at JC Penney during college. We had about the most liberal return policy on the planet. I was amazed at some of the things that were accepted. Normally I could handle a return on my own. But a few caused me to page a supervisor...

Like the time a woman brought in a pair of Rocky Mountain jeans she'd worn to the rodeo and then decided that she didn't like the fit. She wanted to exchange for another pair. Oh excuse me, did I say "to" the rodeo? She was actually in the rodeo. The jeans had dirt stains (at least I hope it was dirt) all over them. Return accepted. New pair placed in bag for free. Hey, it saves on laundry expenses I guess... Another time a woman brought in a pair of Levi's. She was unhappy with the way they'd held up after washings. Repeated washings. They had a hole in the knee. They had frayed hemlines. They'd probably been covering her fat ass for at least 10 years based on the style and color. But because Levi flat-out gave JC Penney a certain dollar amount on any return, the woman walked out with a brand new pair at 20% off.

I could go on and on... But never in all my days at JC Penney do I remember company policy deeming this acceptable. My how things have changed in today's economy!

We were born, born to be wild
I found this on FARK and thought it would make for interesting debate. New Mexico state Senator Allen Hurt has introduced Senate Bill 239. It specifically states that:

A person operating a motorcycle without a helmet and who, as the result of an accident, is pronounced brain dead pursuant to Section 12-2-4 NMSA 1978 by a licensed physician shall become an organ donor regardless of whether the person made an anatomical gift by completing the organ donor statement…
I have a very big problem with this. Although I am personally for organ donation, I am quite against forced organ donation. I think the choice is very personal and private -- and the reasons for and against are plenty. Some religious. Some not.

Sean Maher, the director of the American Motorcyclist Association's state affairs has issued this public statement:

Organ donation is a noble cause that truly can represent the gift of life for people faced with some terminal illnesses. But making the commitment to become an organ donor must remain a private decision left to each person. Classifying an entire group of citizens as nothing more than organs to be harvested isn't just demeaning to motorcyclists, it's offensive to all Americans.
In my own case, I've amended my organ donation card to everything but my eyes and skin. I can't even rationally answer why -- but the thought of donating those two items really bothers me. And I'm allowed that choice. It's my body. If we're going to start taking rights away in this country based on disobeying traffic laws and/or stupidity.....

So how do you feel? Does this seem like a good law to you?

I'm Super...thanks for asking
FOXsports.com has an interesting list of Super Bowl facts. Some include:

  • Nine of the ten most-watched television programs of all time are Super Bowls.
  • People eat more food on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year other than Thanksgiving.
  • Super Bowl weekend is the slowest weekend of the year for weddings.
  • Last year, a 61-year-old lawyer from Chicago turned down an 18-day, all-expenses paid around-the-world trip for two, estimated at $18,000, in favor of two tickets to Super Bowl XXXVI.
  • Sales of antacid increase 20 percent the day after Super Bowl Sunday.

  • The top activities men will be doing during this year's Super Bowl are...

    Eating/snacking, 82 percent
    Watching the ads, 60 percent
    Yelling at the TV screen, 52 percent
    Hanging out with the guys, 46 percent
    Drinking beer, 44 percent
    Swearing or cursing, 39 percent
    Betting on the game, 26 percent

    Just men though? They obviously haven't been to a game shown in our house! Oh yeah, they have facts about avocados, too. Can't forget those... "Forty million pounds of avocados will be eaten during this year's Super Bowl festivities at home and in restaurants, mostly in the form of guacamole. That's enough dip to cover Qualcomm Stadium's football field, end zone to end zone, over five feet deep."

    UPDATE: Sounds like some people took "we're going to the Super Bowl" here to mean we're (as in me and Todd) going to the Super Bowl -- and not we're (as in Tampa Bay). Oops. Unless I have some rich uncle about to buy the farm that I don't know about...our feet will be here pacing the ground of Tampa Bay on Super Bowl Sunday. I rather like my right kidney.
