look at that as a gang, getting together." - Ice Cube

"What's wrong with a miniskirt? You can cause an
accident because some of our people are weak
mentally," - Nsaba Buturo, Uganda's Minister for
Ethics and Integrity.

He's joining the cast of "Joseph And His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in the lead role.

Candidates bling up dead soldier style: according
to the New Yorker, Barack Obama wears a bracelet given
to him by the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq, as
does John McCain. McCain, however, mentions that his
bracelet belonged to an "Iraq veteran who was killed"
- every time he makes an appearance before a
veteran group.

One for fans of Extreme:

Old Philosophers Jokes Home:
A Freudian, a Jungian, and a Lacanian walk into a bar.
The Freudian orders a cigar. The Jungian orders an
Etruscan mask to conceal his face. "You cretins!"
says the Lacanian. He then orders a beer, which,
however, he does not desire.
