They are Just Like Us

I saw this store on Yahoo! News. Apparently, the Iranians have decided to rename the danish (the pastry) to the "roses of Muhammed." It is just amazing how similar the situation is to when Congress decided to rename french fries to freedom fries a year or two ago.

I guess Americans and Iranians aren't so different after all.

Good Story

We don't have to post this week but honestly I don't think we can have a blog and not mention this story. This is hilarious. Our Vice President actually shot someone. I must admit I have a little trouble believing it is a complete accident. Honestly, have you ever looked at Cheney? The man doesn't smile. He doesn't. He always looks like he wants to shoot someone and some I'm convinced that this time he just finally did. Maybe I'm being facetious. Maybe.
