Surplus Halloween costumes from the dollar store?

I can't post serious stuff all the time, here and on Facebook, I'll go out of my mind.  So bear with me, hilarity ensues.

NoKos in camo on the firing range—I kid you not:

Weasel Zippers was choking this afternoon, too:

Do they know how to aim? Are they fighting in their pajamas? So many things wrong with this picture I don’t know where to start.

Read the comments—inspired lunacy.

In a later post, Zip put up a picture of what camo is supposed to look like:

Indeed.

I've posted some of these cartoons here and others I've sent to friends...they'll look familiar wink
 

Paul Ryan's Express

Hitler finds out Ryan is the VP pick (subtitle language warning):

Small government begins at home

And teaching always works better with a little humor.

In response to a request from a seventh-grader for federal clean-up funds to deal with his room, declared a disaster area by his mother, President Reagan responded thusly (at Letters of Note, via The Daily):

Andy Smith
Irmo, South Carolina
May 11, 1984
 
Dear Andy:
 
I'm sorry to be so late in answering your letter but as you know I've been in China and found your letter here upon my return. 
 
Your application for disaster relief has been duly noted but I must point out one technical problem: the authority declaring the disaster is supposed to make the request. In this case your mother. 
 
However setting that aside I'll have to point out the larger problem of available funds. This has been a year of disasters, 539 hurricanes as of May 4th and several more since, numerous floods, forest fires, drought in Texas and a number of earthquakes. What I'm getting at is that funds are dangerously low. 
 
May I make a suggestion? This administration, believing that government has done many things that could better be done by volunteers at the local level, has sponsored a Private Sector Initiative program, calling upon people to practice voluntarism in the solving of a number of local problems. 
 
Your situation appears to be a natural. I'm sure your mother was fully justified in proclaiming your room a disaster. Therefore you are in an excellent position to launch another volunteer program to go along with the more than 3,000 already underway in our nation—congratulations.
 
Give my best regards to your mother.
 
Sincerely, 
 
Ronald Reagan

Another little art history lesson from One of Nine...

Here's the Michelangelo original, in which the 'finger of the paternal right hand' (from the hymn Veni Creator Spiritus) gives life to Adam: 


And here's Rich Terrell's take, in which God gives the finger to BO:

All Of The Above, None From Below energy policy

Hilarity ensues.

At the Las Vegas Sun:

...one turbine that cost the city [of Reno] $21,000 to install saved the city $4 on its energy bill. Overall, $416,000 worth of turbines have netted the city $2,800 in energy savings.

At the Reno Gazette-Journal, a reminder that this is your tax dollars at work:

Nearly two years after Reno started installing energy-producing windmills at city facilities from downtown to Stead, some have proven to be better at generating electricity than others despite claims made by manufacturers...
 
...The windmills were installed between April and October 2010 and cost about $1 million out of a $2.1 million federal energy grant given to the city that was part of the stimulus package approved by Congress in February 2009...
 
...The most successful of Reno’s six operational windmills is located at the city’s water sewer facility in Stead. It features two white blades and has generated 11 megawatt-hours over the last 365 days with an average wind speed of 2.3 miles per hour.
I'm not even going to go there.
 
And for all you Gaia afficionados:
Before it was constructed in October 2010, it was expected to generate 10.5 megawatt-hours, according to its Scotland-based manufacturer, Gaia-Wind.
Well, then.
 
But wait!—there's more! Since total reliance on intermittent renewables means that "energy prices will necessarily skyrocket," those entrepreneurial animal spirits in the administration have come up with a couple of new products. Click on the image (from the brilliant Maksim) to embiggen—believe me, it's worth it. 
 

Déjà vu all over again

It's April...baseball season's starting up again (think Yogi Berra—read 'em and laugh) and Easter's almost here.  I was going to post this cartoon around this time last year but didn't have the nerve.  Who knew we'd be back in the same spot at the same point in 2012?  Well—we all did, didn't we?

At least we're not quite here—yet:
