Buckle Up Or Die

You gotta love the Ol' Ballcoach. When he's not yappin' it up and drawin' plays to run up the score, Steve Spurrier is encouraging us all to buckle our seat belts...if you like to live, that is.

"Spurrier...filmed a public service announcement for the state Public Safety Department on Tuesday, urging drivers and passengers to 'buckle up, South Carolina.'

Spurrier said he has long been a committed seat belt user and thinks everyone should wear one. 'If you don't like life, if you want to die, then don't do it,' Spurrier told The Associated Press on Tuesday." [Article]

I'd love to see the look of smug satisfaction on his face when the police drive him to the scene of a deadly accident where some Gator fan could have lived if he had buckled up properly and followed the coach's advice. "Po' bastard, that's why I left that schoooo. Not enough bucklin', I says to them, I says."

Speaking of smug satisfaction, here's the premise of the millenium: "The White House said Tuesday the United States' image abroad had suffered irreparable damage from a now-retracted Newsweek article alleging that American interrogators at Guantanamo Bay desecrated the Quran, the Muslim holy book."

The Newsweek article is responsible for irreparable damage? Seriously? Not the war your boy started on false facts, Scotty? I gotta hand it to this White House, you guys really know how to deflect critique and divert attention. "Hey, these Newsweek people fucked our shit up. People loved us before this, they loved us!"

The AGU points out the United States isn't the only entity with an image problem. Apparently Donnie and Ace's alma mater is having a little trouble keeping the Masturbating Bear out of the Northwestern Library. I wanna get on the record right now: I never did this. But only because I only went inside the NU Libes about two or three times in college. I definitely beat off in public at the student union though.

Slack Song of the Day: Keller Williams' Best Feeling from Chicago's Aragon Ballroom on 8/12/2004...I'm on way too big a Keller Kick right now. You should be too. As my new blogger cohort over at the Live Music Blog said last night, "He's about 10 years ahead of everybody else right now." True.

Yeah, the Gov is treading a thin line with the fake Newsweek story. The story may be bogus, but do they really want to draw attention to what's going on in Gitmo? This is just inviting an expose that is, in fact true. And I'm sure that they employ some questionable tactics. But hey, stupid is as stupid does.

Oh, and that Keller Williams song sounds very much like Don't Fear the Reaper would sound if Wide Spread Panic played it (sans Cowbell, of course).

I just think it's so ridiculous that this administration is taking the high road with a straight face. But you're right, we're definitely asking for trouble.

K-Dub is the man. Cowbell or no cowbell.
