Tidbits From Elsewhere: 3/27/07

Posted by ALmod on March 27, 2007

It’s a slow news day, again.  How slow?  The top story seems to be Anna Nicole Smith’s cause of death, and that was yesterday’s news.  So we’ll just see what everyone else is up to.

Fox News:  Tony Snow has cancer again.

Alabama Improper:  There’s a SNL sketch with Peyton Manning that you just have to see.  Thanks to Jeff Vreeland for putting that up for us.

Alablawg:  I was planning on commenting on the Ken Guin situation, but Wheeler says it so much better than I ever could.

Between the Links:  Dan has posted a rather interesting Troy King ad.

Birmingham News:  It’s harder to get some types of cold medicine.  No kidding.  I’ve resorted to calling my doctor for a prescription for a pseudophedrine/guiphenesine combo.  It’s just easier (and sometimes cheaper) that way, since my health insurance covers it.  I can pay $11 for a week’s worth of meds or $7 for a month’s worth of meds and not have to search for a brand that has changed its formula.  At least, it’s a lot easier than Stephen Colbert’s suggestion, in which he buys meth from a dealer and then reverse engineers it into Sudafed (and then cleans his kitchen for 72 hours).

Birmingham News:  We’ve all seen the Peep torture websites.  The Birmingham News had an article Sunday (funnier with the pictures) where they did their own experiments.  It has me wondering if anyone actually eats Peeps.  The idea of a Peeps smores sounds good, though.  Well, not everyone has a sense of humor.  (Scroll down the page.)  Lighten up, lady.  It’s just good ol’ fashioned playing with your food, not advocating torture.  We (or apparently some) eat these things, too.  That doesn’t mean that we’re advocating cannibalism.

    It’s funny that you called that an “ad,” since that’s exactly what it is — a campaign ad — even though it’s on an official government website.

    LOL! Didn’t know what else to call it, Dan.

    Loretta, I’d have posted the YouTube video of Colbert’s remarks, but Viacom would break down my door.
