B.Y.O.Boobs

Here's a PSA for those of you in the military who are reading this:
 
So the New Yorker has a story running (or about to run) about how the U.S. Army provides free cosmetic surgery for its enlistees and their families. Obviously a necessary part of the Army, these cosmetic surgeries are coming at the expense of the taxpayer; at the same time, the government continues to inform veterans they have no money for them, cutting back benefits and hospital services. Makes sense. There's a joke in there somewhere, but I'm too busy getting a password for www.AboobiesGhraibPrison.com.
 
From 2000-2003, Army surgeons performed nearly 500 breast enlargements and more than 1,300 liposuctions. That's right, either the soldiers' wives or the soldiers themselves are running around with bigger breasts and slimmer hips for free, and at our expense. The only catch: The Army does not provide the implants, the operatees had to bring those themselves. Small price to pay and carry to look like Sgt. Callahan from Police Academy.
 
Anyone else wake up nauseous this morning? Just me. OK, that's fine, at least it's not anthrax or something. 
 
Unrelated quote of the day, which comes from Charlotte Bobcats owner and BET founder Robert L. Johnson. Johnson said the following in a press release, after announcing that Nelly had joined the ownership group of the expansion franchise: "This is a great opportunity for both the Bobcats and Nelly." Sure is. Business is beautiful.

Did you ever have one certain quote from a particularly forgettable movie get stuck in your head for years on end? (Somehow, I think both Bullet Cabellero and Darrell Felson will have several of these to contribute...)

Mine is this:
Did you ever see that HBO-produced Don King biopic "Only in America" starring Ving Rhames? Turd of a movie, but I'll be damned if there wasn't one really good quote. In a certain scene, King is trying to get some young prospect to sign with him. For some reason, as the deal nears closure, the conversation moves into the men's room, where King takes a piss while nailing down the specifics. He zips up, flushes the toilet, and extends his hand to seal the deal. The boxer is taken aback.

Boxer: Uh...don't you want to wash up or something?
King: I was my hands BEFORE I touch MY dick.

Boxer smiles uneasily, but shakes his hand. Done deal. How do you argue with that?

Love it, Bart.

Ving Rhames is chock full o' quotable lines...his work as the head Secret Service man in Dave changed my life. He so woulda taken a bullett for Dave, it truly touched me, and not in the way that my Uncle Gary used to touch me.

Fiedler's on "vacation," just like all the Germans from the 1930s to 1945 were on vacation.

And I'm a busy bitch, so entertain yourselves today folks.

haha, funny article, http://www.cnn.com/2004/HEALTH/07/20/reefer.madness.reut/index.html


in particular this part, "Proponents of legalizing marijuana disagree with the official line. Krissy Oechslin of the Marijuana Policy Project disputes the finding that cannabis products are stronger.

"They make it sound like the THC levels in marijuana were almost nonexistent, but no one would have smoked it then if that was true," she said.

"And there's evidence that the stronger the THC, the less of it a person smokes. I don't want to say it's good for you, but I'll say (more potent marijuana) is less bad for you."

Spoken like a true stoner, smoke em if ya got em
