Sharon, don't you understand what's going on? The world's a disaster.

Man, you leave for the weekend and everything goes to hell. The Gaza strip erupts into violence, the U.S. bombs a Somali town, Iranian President Ahmadinejad visits Iraq, Venezuala and Ecuador are on the brink of war with Columbia and Van Halen breaks up yet again.

Sometimes one has to sit back and wonder if mankind will ever be able to break the genetic disposition to conflict and or if David Lee Roth's ego will always be too much for Eddie to overcome.

In Pakistan police fired tear gas at lawyers. If it was the United States the police would be heroes.

Russia held an election with the results somewhat questionable. Dmitri Medvedev will share power with outgoing Russian President Vladimir Putin. Thank God we've never had to face a situation where we had two Presidents here in the United States.

As a final sign that the apocalypse is nigh our own Overdroid won an ACME award from the prestigious ACME Comedy Theater in Los Angeles for Best Sketch Comedy series. Surely he is the Fourth Horseman.

(Note: this shot is not fuzzy. The subject is.)

All I read was blah blah blah Van Halen broke up blah blah blah Overdroid won best comedy sketch.

Awesome (but not about the world "goin to hell in a handbasket)

Poop. We probably won't even get the handbasket either.

Dean Wormer said...

Apparently I was wrong about Van Halen. Hard to understand why I would just jump at a rumour that they broke up.


I'll get you the handbasket so you don't have to go without.

Oh, it's only a matter of time for the ultimate VH breakup. It's not like it hasn't happened 752 times before.

Oh, in the time I typed that, I think something else blew up.

It was hard to hear what was going on but good for him!

Dean Wormer said...


I think the ultimate VH breakup will involve them simultaneously spontaneously combusting on stage or something else just as spectacular.


Yeah but I'm sure he was very witty and funny as he accepted.

I won TWO awards, punk. One for best comedy sketch series (How stuff works, a bit where I use a blue screen effect to go inside of new technology and discover it usually has Al Gore inside of it) and Best Character in an improv show (For Vincent Trask, the bitter janitor of Star force One who was sentenced to a life of mining pitchblende with his bare hands for destroying an entire solar system inhabited by cute and peaceful empaths).

The other stuff isn't such a big deal.

Dean Wormer said...

That's MISTER punk to you.

Congrats again.
