Is it just me, or has the world gone mad?
Earlier this week, Iran officially banned the mullet. You know, the mullet—that international symbol of western hedonism and vice. Meanwhile, they’re still stoning people to death. Wow.
This morning, I read that the U.S. and Russia swapped spies in Vienna. When asked on The Tonight Show why the U.S. only got four spies in exchange for Russia’s 10, Vice President Biden said, “We got back four really good ones.” Talk about the ultimate game of Red Rover (no Communist pun intended).
Then, I read an authoritative prediction that Spain will beat the Netherlands in the World Cup final. Never mind that the authority in question is an octopus named Paul. Paul’s been 100% accurate for two years. I wonder if he also does lottery numbers.
Finally, I saw that Roy Rogers’ horse Trigger is up for auction. The stuffed and mounted equine is expected to fetch $100,000 to $200,000. I don’t know why, but that just makes me sad.
