I completely missed this Sports Illustrated feature story in October about Green Bay's own Jay DeMerit. DeMerit has taken the English Premier Soccer League by storm in a time where - let's face it - Americans aren't exactly overly popular. Aside from that, he's a self made star and a was a longshot to make it big.
You mean you can have sex without making a baby? Really? That's the excuse women gave me for 20 years!
From male killer whales that ride the dorsal fin of another male to female bonobos that rub their genitals together, the animal kingdom tolerates all kinds of lifestyles. A first-ever museum display, "Against Nature?," which opened last month at the University of Oslo's Natural History Museum in Norway, presents 51 species of animals exhibiting homosexuality...
However, species continuation may not always be the ultimate goal, as many animals, including humans, engage in sexual activities more than is necessary for reproduction.
I was swapping stories with my buddy Johnny Roast Beef at the Badger game yesterday, and remembered one that I thought was worth passing along. It shows just how ruthless the Milwaukee police can be.
Back in July, the University of Wisconsin System began taking applications for three new positions within the System President's office. One would be an executive level position (which has since been filled) and the other two would be assigned the tasks of media relations and lobbying the Legislature.
Administrators were forced to choose between Barrett in a case of perceived "academic freedom" and Nass, a perennial critic. With about 28,000 System employees looking on, administrators stuck with Barrett.Academic freedom versus Steve Nass. It's really that easy, right? Actually, the UW chose "academic freedom" over things like "factual integrity" and "responsible use of tax dollars." Steve Nass only served as a red herring served up by people looking to make the UW look more favorable. Barrett was criticized for being a crackpot; does Nass deserve equal condemnation for pointing it out?
Is there anything better than re-discovering a CD that you loved back in the day, but that you forgot that you even owned? It's like finding a $20 bill in an old leopard print g-string.
A lot of offensive things go on at the Capitol, but I think this one trumps them all.
York requested that I run our new business idea past his readership. He would do it himself but I think he's under a desk somewhere. (Take that whichever way you will. I can't stop you.)
I'm watching "Plot to Kill: Ronald Reagan" on the History channel. My info button says it is a documentary and "dramatic reenactment".
I'm still working on that stoplight post York requested but there are just so many other things to talk about. So many things.
Hm. So I'm excited for this chance to stand in Dennis York's shoes for a day or two. Incidentally, his shoes are damp. Very dubious indeed.
Since I am recovering from both a literal and figurative election night hangover, I'm taking some time off from the blog. In my place will be the fabulous Neville Barksdale, who will take the reins in my absence. Please welcome Neville with a big round of applause.
Everyone seems to be doing their pre-election posts with their endorsements, predictions, and observations. I will refrain from any of these, as I refuse to believe that anyone really cares what I, as a dopey blogger, think. Plus, if you read my blog, you pretty much know how I'm voting. If you don't read my blog, congratulations on actually being a productive worker in your office.
I didn't want the election season to expire without mentioning the impressive campaign mounted by Mike Hanson, who's running for Dane County Sheriff. As you probably already know, Sheriff is the one office where you can conceivably be elected countywide as a Republican in Dane County.
Wispolitics is reporting tonight that Bill Christofferson will be ending his popular lefty blog "The Xoff Files" tomorrow.
I think I remember buying this bear a drink sophomore year. She threw a trout at me, which was actually one of the better ways women reacted to my advances.
Next time I stumble in at 2 AM, I'll just tell my wife I ran into a bad batch of fermented apples. In the strip club.
On Thursday, the race for Wisconsin's 2nd Congressional District took on an almost Fellini-esque quality when challenger Dave Magnum crashed a joint press conference held by incumbent Tammy Baldwin and U.S. Senator Herb Kohl.
You know you're wife is just going to nag you until you get one anyway, so why not just get off your ass and do it now?
Madison (AP) - In an explosive development that is likely to break the Wisconsin gubernatorial race wide open, investigators have begun looking into reports that Governor Jim Doyle actually purchased the new Justin Timberlake CD, "Future Sex/Love Sounds." When confronted by reporters immediately following the incident, a visibly shaken Doyle said only, "Um.... stem cells? Anyone?"
Doyle spokesman Anson Kaye immediately dismissed the incident, saying "Governor Doyle has long been an admirer of Mr. Timberlake's work, and he fully supports his initiative to bring sexy back." Recent economic reports show that sexy has been on the decline in Wisconsin, roughly since the introduction of the McGriddle breakfast sandwich.
Timberlake's work, popular among babysitters and imaginary unicorn riders, appears to have driven Doyle to some questionable behavior lately. "Yeah, he's really been acting totally weird - wearing headphones to cabinet meetings and spending his whole day in his office on MySpace," said campaign chair Marc Marotta. "Maybe he's just getting used to his new training bra," snickered Marotta, while covering his face and trying not to laugh. However, open records requests show that Marotta himself purchased the Timberlake CD a full month before Doyle.
In his campaign, Doyle has been making a conscious effort to reach out to young voters. In fact, he recently released a television ad in which he peforms the most awkward caucasian high-five in human recorded history, barely beating out the time blogger Dennis York found out sweater vests at Banana Republic were on sale.
Doyle's youth outreach strategy has earned him a 100% approval rating among voters under 14 years of age. His popularity has plummeted among his fraternity brothers, who actually all own the CD themselves, but are too ashamed to admit that it's actually pretty damn good. In an attempt to resurrect his indie cred, Doyle has been seen touting his prescription drug plan wearing a tattered Dead Milkmen t-shirt.
The world doesn't need to hold its collective breath anymore waiting for Neil Heinen of Channel 3 in Madison to tell them how to vote on the gay marriage amendment. The Word of Heinen has been handed down on tablets, and reads (my bold):
Next Tuesday's election here in Wisconsin will be watched around the country for a number of reasons and one of those is the potentially precedent-setting vote on the proposed amendment defining marriage. We very much hope this amendment is defeated, and Wisconsin is seen as a national leader in offering a tolerant environment to all.
Rarely is a word so accurately reflective of a ballot question as the word "fair" is to the marriage amendment. Opponents are urging a "no" vote for a fair Wisconsin. We agree. The proposal to define marriage, which is already adequately defined in our constitution, is nothing less than an attempt to codify unfairness, to make mean-spiritedness and bigotry the law of the state.
"Ummm... vote "no" on the amendment because it's unfair, and, ummm.... here's a collection of some more words that kind of sound like what I've been hearing from my lefty pals."
