ho-va holding down 6th place at head of the chuck. well, not that exciting or even that good but whatever. also congrats to hannah taking 9th in the lightweight single.
but even more unfortunately that this year’s HOCR winners/losers really don’t mean crap due to the shortened course, screwing everything up.
Today we salute you, Mr. Constant Collar Putter Upper. You, bedecked in popped collar, teach us that we no longer have to live with a cold back-of-the-neck. Sure, your Pink alligator polo may look feminine to some, but not to the 17 other frat guys wearing the same thing at the bar. Where others may seem thoughtless fashion uniformity, you preach a higher gospel. You preach of a world where it’s okay for a man to go tanning. You ask “why can’t we wear make-up, and use shampoo with lavender essence?” So crack open an ice-cold Bud Light, Mr. Abercrombie (or is it Fitch?), because we all know, when we really need a piece of gum, you might have one… in your man purse.
for the record, i hate it when guys pop their collars or have more than one pink shirt in their possession.
why is everyone getting married? seriously?
i think with my head and not with a party.
the 9/11 commission report contains the phrase “omnipotent, unslayable hydra of destruction.” YES.
there was no al Qaeda presence in iraq before, but there might be now. gotta love irony.
The Purpose of Planning:
More Americans have been killed in Iraq after the president stood on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln and declared “major combat operations” over than were killed during “major combat operations.” (Not to mention an ill placed “Mission Accomplished” sign.) What do you think was the combined number of postconflict American combat casualities in our engagements in Germany, Japan, Haiti, Bosnia, and Kosovo?
D: None of the above
The correct answer is D, because the correct answer is zero. Zero post conflict combat casualities in all those other engagements combined. What a difference a little post combat planning makes, huh?
