Oh, you’re funny

Mayor Larry Langford calls for immediate action on dome – al.com

Immediate action? On the Birmingdome? Ha! The whole point of the Birmingdome is that there’s never any action, just lots and lots of talk.

What great news!

It’s not like her husband has a history of beating his kids and driving them to long-term mental illness or anything.

That’s great!

Hooray, a poisonous snake that hasn’t been found here for 40 years is back! And the standard antivenins won’t work on its bite!

She’s very confused

She was wearing black framed glasses and an orange Auburn University T-shirt. She was carrying a white canvas bag with red along the bottom and what’s believed to be a University of Alabama “A” on it.

Freak.

“Hiking the Appalachian Trail” is the new euphemism for politicians having extramarital affairs. As in, “John Edwards was hiking the Appalachian Trail while his wife was dying of cancer.” Or, “Newt Gingrich was hiking the Appalachian Trail while his wife was being treated for cancer, then served her with divorce papers in the hospital.” Or, “Self-hating closeted gay Alabama Attorney General Troy King has been hiking the Appalachian Trail with one of his male staffers for years, and everybody knows it.” Or, “Nobody’s hiked the Appalachian Trail like Bill Clinton.” Though “Flying to Argentina” is good too. Like “John Ensign was flying to Argentina with one of his married staffers, until her husband found out and tried to get hush money.”

Do the Dome!

Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford launches new campaign urging release of city money build domed stadium – al.com

He wants to have a “Let’s Do the Dome” rally. I’m not sure what kind of dance the Dome would be, but I want to see it. The actual dome, of course, will never be built but will always exist in potentia.

So… many… David Caruso jokes…
