Nuke the Punchline - Check Your Privilege, Mr. President

Harvey over at IMAO has posted a new straight line of the day. You should go check it out! My favorites from the last one are :

Add It to the List: Global Warming Is Now Being Cited As the Cause of…

All of these things! Cookies to mark
for the awesome link! 
I had such a HARD time narrowing it down!  Global warming seems to cause, well.....everything...
#10 Steve H: ...declining populations of liberals.
#9 James: ..More sunshine leading to glare from Joe Biden’s teeth. [So *that's* why!]

#8 currently: . . . The shocking rise of electric blanket electrocutions  [Hee hee]

#7 Karen: … All those attempts on Obama’s life by time travelers  :D
#6 Burt: …the proliferation of excuse making.

#5 walruskkkch:....George W. Bush’s birth. [The cycle of blame is complete] [I have closure :) ]

#4 Doug: ...Billions and billions of taxpayer dollars, being given to environmentalists to aid in defrauding the public and bankrupting the country. Well, that and the increase in the Rat population. And yoga pants. [This one made me laugh out loud :P]

#3 Bob in Feenicks: ...…electile dysfunction in democrats

#2 NO_MO_BAMA:  ...stupid American voters…oh wait, maybe it’s the other way around.

And my favorite straight line of the day was from Iowa Jim: 

Add It to the List: Global Warming Is Now Being Cited As the Cause of… white privilege, male privilege, heterosexual privilege, and executive privilege.

Cookies to Iowa Jim!

...and we can't forget Kiss up Cookies :) 

Add It to the List: Global Warming Is Now Being Cited As the Cause of…

Steve H:.… walnuts in cookies  [Doggone warming...:P]

FormerHostage: …stale cookies.
…shorter attention spans due to the…ah…effects of…uh…hmmm…link to cat videos? Oh! Now that’s funny. What’s this one? Oh! I LOVE that song. Who’s this guy? That was him? Invest in gold? Hmmmm. Oh, here we go, a recipe for walnut cookies that tastes good. Oh good, I missed that episode of Iron Chef….
 [You'd have to be VERY distracted to ever think ANY recipe could make cookies with walnuts taste good :) ]

Burt: …needing less baking soda in cookies. (more heat, better chemical reaction) You might turn the oven down a little, too. [So there's a positive side! :)] 

walruskkkch: the lack of availability of Anonymiss cookies. [I'll make more :)]

HokieGomer: …shorter bake times for cookies. I fail to see the downside here. [Global warming saves me time and energy! Kinda awesome! :P ]

James: ...Greatly increased yields of walnuts which never led to anything good. [Nothing good at ALL! :) ]

Kiss Up Cookies to Steve H,
FormerHostage, Burt, walruskkkch,
HokieGomer and James!
The Musings of Anonymiss: 

Something festive: (It's already snowy and VERY cold here in Wisconsin. 
If I don't start thinking about the joy of Christmas, I won't make it :)


  1. From G.K. Chesterton's book, The Everlasting Man, Part II, Chapter 1, The God in the Cave:
    The truth is that there is a quite peculiar and individual character about the hold of this story on human nature; it is not in its psychological substance at all like a mere legend or the life of a great man. It does not exactly in the ordinary sense turn our minds to greatness; to those extensions and exaggerations of humanity which are turned into gods and heroes, even by the healthiest sort of hero-worship. It does not exactly work outwards, adventurously, to the wonders to be found at the ends of the earth. It is rather something that surprises us from behind, from the hidden and personal part of our being; like that which can sometimes take us off our guard in the pathos of small objects or the blind pieties of the poor. It is rather as if a man had found an inner room in the very heart of his own house, which he had never suspected; and seen a light from within. It is as if he found something at the back of his own heart that betrayed him into good. It is not made of what the world would call strong materials; or rather it is made of materials whose strength is in that winged levity with which they brush us and pass. It is all that is in us but a brief tenderness that is there made eternal; all that means no more than a momentary softening that is in some strange fashion become a strengthening and a repose; it is the broken speech and the lost word that are made positive and suspended unbroken; as the strange kings fade into a far country and the mountains resound no more with the feet of the shepherds; and only the night and the cavern lie in fold upon fold over something more human than humanity.
