Old Taunt Becomes Actual Event.

There are posts that we have trouble writing because we are laughing too hard. This is one of those posts.

Many people know the ol’ taunt of “Liar! Liar! Pants on fire!”

Well, unfortunately for a lawyer in Miami….

A Miami defense lawyer’s pants burst into flames Wednesday afternoon as he began his closing arguments in front of a jury — in an arson case.

Stephen Gutierrez, who was arguing that his client’s car spontaneously combusted and was not intentionally set on fire, had been fiddling in his pocket as he was about to address jurors when smoke began billowing out his right pocket, witnesses told the Miami Herald.

He rushed out of the Miami courtroom, leaving spectators stunned. After jurors were ushered out, Gutierrez returned unharmed, with a singed pocket, and insisted it wasn’t a staged defense demonstration gone wrong, observers said.

Ouch. But there is more hurtin’ headed Guiterrez’s way:

Table Tennis Anyone?

There are times that we really don’t understand the more bizarre aspects of the Japanese culture. Some of their game shows are so out there that we can’t wrap out minds around the concept and the people that go on them.

However, we always liked the sport of table tennis. In high school and college, even the most casual of tournaments were cutthroat and exciting.

But not to this extent. The Japanese apparently take their table tennis extremely seriously.

Here are two videos on the sport in Japan. The first one has some trick shots and is funny. It becomes very cute and endearing at the end.

This one, is just funny and weird. In a good sense.

It’s Monday And You Need A Laugh: The Matrix Starring Forrest Gump

This is great.

As one friend likes to say, “we laughed until we stopped.”

In this Hero Swap, The Matrix swaps out Neo with Forrest Gump because there is no spoon and you never know what you’re gonna get. Brought to you by HISHE and Klomp! Animation.

Ace Of Spades Presents “You Might Be A Democrat If…..”

We don’t know how many people in the US aren’t familiar with comedian Jeff Foxworthy and his shtick of “you might be a redneck if…..” Over at the website Ace of Spades, they took the concept to another level with “you might be a Democrat if…..”

(We edited some of the NSFW ones out and highlighted some of our favorites.)

If you can listen to Madonna, Miley Cyrus, and Lady Gaga complain about how Trump degrades women and not burst out laughing…

If you think a person’s gender is fluid but sexual preference is permanently fixed…

If you’re against the death penalty but are OK with abortion…

If you think the NY Times is biased in favor of conservatives…

If you believe Russians hacked the election, but there’s no need to investigate the possibility of voter fraud…

If you believe Russians hacked the election, but have no problem with the Clintons making deals to sell American uranium to Russian oligarchs…

If you believe shouting down conservative speakers is ‘free speech’…

If you believe throwing rocks at police officers and breaking windows is ‘free speech’…

If you believe that the Palestinians are entitled to a homeland, but the Israelis aren’t…

If you punch someone in the face while you’re wearing a “Love Trumps Hate” T-shirt…

If you want the government out of your bedroom while demanding free birth control…

If you can voice your presidential assassination fantasies in public without fear of consequences…

…. you might be a Democrat.

They then opened the comments to suggestions and the commenters did not disappoint:

New Year Resolution Generator.

Feeling somewhat lost for a resolution to make (and later break) this new year? Artist John Atkinson has a solution!

We think that we have a good chance of “avoid quoting ABBA before Civil War re-enactments.”

(At least we hope so.)

You Think Hillary’s Loss Was Bad? This One Is Worse.


Mike Earnst won the election to be the Town Treasurer of Oceanside, CA this past week.

It should be a time of celebration for him as he was re-elected to a post he had served in since December, 2010.

The only problem is that Earnst is deceased. Dead. Passed away.

Earnst went to that grand ledger in the sky in September of this year – two months before the election.

And yet he won.

Ernst was running for re-election against Nadine Scott, an attorney, special district treasurer and neighborhood activist. His death happened so close to the election that he’ll still appear on the ballot.

If he’s elected, the City Council can either call a special election or appoint someone to the position.

Oceanside City Councilman Jerry Kern said he’ll do everything he can to make sure Ernst still wins.

“Even though Gary passed away, he is still better qualified than she is,” he said.
