Filming on location for Walker: Texas Ranger, Chuck Norris brought a stillborn baby lamb back to life by giving it a prolonged beard rub. Shortly after the farm animal sprang back to life and a crowd had gathered, Chuck Norris roundhouse kicked the animal, breaking its neck, to remind the crew once more that Chuck giveth, and the good Chuck, he taketh away.

UNLESS...she talks back, stays out too late, doesn't have dinner ready on time, doesn't have your coffee "just right", fails to walk 10 steps behind you...come on these type billboards try to generalize everything and wind up doing more harm than good. By the way they stole that pic from Ike and Tina's first album cover. Hit me one more time Ike...and this time put some STANK on it! Posted by Picasa

Unnur Birna Viljalmsottir from Iceland takes the Miss World title. With this comes the news that Iceland will now officially change its name to Hotland. This post was done largely to counteract the previous post about the gay cowboys...I figured you all needed a little something to get you back on track.  Posted by Picasa

Hollywood is all abuzz over the new blockbuster movie Bareback Mounting. This is a timeless story about two up and coming Hollywood actors who shoot their carreers in the chest by playing gay cowboys, and in the process give up all female fans forever, will likely have to suffer hordes of gay stalkers until the day they die, and do it all for very little money on a movie that most people will never watch. Word on the street is that their agents are now looking for work.

The jokes are never ending on this one folks. Here are a few that the Vortex has kicked out thus far:

1 - The movie theaters are now serving Fudge at the snack bar.
2 - All people buying tickets to Bareback Mounting have to go in the backdoor.
3 - The firemarshall has a problem with it because the whole theater is flaming and the back door is packed.
4 - It's unclear from the commercials if the cowboys ride the horses or just each other.
5 - Anyone wearing assless chaps gets in for free.

Please add jokes as you think of them.

Uncle Greenspan is back

Well it's been a few months since the Blogapova has ben updated. For a while I was so busy trying to torment the fixed income salesmen of the world by ever-so-slowly tightening the target fed funds rate that I missed out on a lot of comedy in the news. As much fun as it is to torture bond salesmen I think I'll have to pick up the Blogapova, dust it off, and take it out for a drive.
