Nuke the Punchline - It's a Bargain

Harvey over at IMAO has posted a new straight line of the day, so it is time to choose the winners of the last one:

After Learning of the NSA’s Spying Program, China…

#5 rodney dill: …responded… If ya get caught, you’re doin’ it wrong.

#4 c64wood …Rick-Rolled Obama. To which Obama replied, “Ha Ha, Dang y’all got me again! (via teleprompter)”

#3 walruskkkch:…just sat there and did nothing, being a geographic location.

#2 Oppo:… said, “Destroying privacy to “protect freedom”? That’s, like, Tao-talitarianism!”

And my favorite straight line of the day was from Dohtimes:

After Learning of the NSA’s Spying Program, China…felt better about not buying the extended warranty on Obama but had the return policy checked at Puppets-R-Us anyway. Next Democrat will definitely be rent to own.

 Cookies to Dohtimes!


If, like me, you're worred about the government spying on need to go see: Orwell? Oh Well by our brilliant Les. Apparently, we can sleep peacefully, because Ms. Napolitano has got us covered.  :) Cookies to Sketchy!


Lots of great responses to my line today :) My favorites:

Russia is selling helicopters to the U.S. for 572 million. Russia will also... .

#3 Bob B:...provide ecologically-friendly engines that run on vodka and borscht.

#2 FredKey: ...accept payment in Super Bowl paraphernalia.

And my favorite line was from frogmouth:

Russia is selling helicopters to the U.S. for 572 million. Russia will also... Enclose a second helicopter (just pay separate shipping and handling) for FREE!!! if you call within the next thirty minutes. That's TWO genuine Russian helicopters for the low low price of just $572 million.

Cookies to frogmouth!

Here's a new line for you to try:

California is giving pay raises to its leaders. Next to be rewarded...


  1. ... the businesses who've paid for those raises - when they flee to the loving embrace of Rick Perry's Texas.

  2. ...will be state coffers, with monies, levied by afore-said newly compensated leaders from those few who still work in the shrinking economy of the formerly Golden State.

    ...wait - WHAT THE FRACK?

  3. ...Chicago, their annual cost of bribery increases just went up 12%, and the vote passed to double the minimum kickback payment.

  4. ...arsonists. They're creating new construction jobs.
