Pre-Thanksgiving Blog: Everything must go!

Duck’s Breath DVD
Bill and I brainstormed a couple little promotional ideas, and (fingers crossed) we should have the actual first 2500 DVDs ready to ship in ten days.

Virgin in the cheese sandwich update.
The cheese toastie containing the image of the Virgin Mary has been sold to the online casino GoldenPalace. (Of course it has!) Diana Duyser was the seller. This is from the casino’s web site:

“'I would like all people to know that I do believe that this is the Virgin Mary Mother of God,' says Duyser, a work-from-home jewelry designer. 'That is my solemn belief. People ask me if I have had blessings since she has been in my home. I do feel I have, I have won $70,000 on different occasions at the casino near my house.'”

How subtle, how magnificent the works of God!

JFK
Just in time for the anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination, there’s a new video game called JFK RELOADED. If you can kill the President in three shots, you win. A perfect stocking stuffer!

Artested by the media
So this guy Artest was on the TODAY SHOW, post-melee, and was asked the inane question, “But what do you say to the twelve-year-old fan of the sport who's seen this and is trying to come to terms with what he or she has seen?”

To which Mr. Artest replied, in part: “People go to war but we don't want to go to war.” So basketball and Iraq are somehow equivalent?

You won’t have Dan Rather to kick around any more.
Michael Goodwin, opining in the New York Daily News, claimed that Dan Rather’s fall (it was a fall?) was “Nixonian.” Whatever.

Thank God I’m not having turkey with Amen-shouting neurologically disordered Michelle Malkin. I hereby disparage her!
“Despite the embarrassment it sometimes causes, I love her [i.e. her adorable daughter] unrepentant zeal. It reminds us not to take for granted our too-infrequent gestures of daily thanksgiving. It reminds us to be humble. Following her lead, we must all bow our heads and fold our hands and shut our eyes and shout a full-throated ‘Amen!’ The snobs of secularism will no doubt disparage such simple-minded expressions of piety. They call us ‘Jesus freaks,’ ‘Bible-thumpers’ and ‘fundies.’ They accuse us of being ‘weak’ and of suffering from a ‘neurological disorder.’ They consider us such a threat that they have sought to expunge even the most innocuous references to thanking God in the public schools.”

Happy Thanksgiving.
I’ll be off enjoying the company of fellow secular humanists tomorrow, burning Bibles, flags, shooting heroin, and bashing Bush. Dan Rather, you loony sonofabitch, stop on by!
