From the Ichthypundit

MP changes name to Haddock

Austin Mitchell, an British Labour MP from is (probably temporarily) changing his name to Austin Haddock to encourage people to eat more fish. And because he’s starved for attention, I’ll bet. I’d like to encourage our legislators to follow his example. For instance, Idaho’s Mike Crapo, who really needs to change his name anyway, could be Mike Potato. Or Potatoe, since he’s a Republican.

Ananova – Val Kilmer and Lisa Kudrow set for film about porn star

Mann, Barenaked Ladies To Rock ‘West Wing’

Aimee Mann I like. But why are Barenaked Ladies — a Canadian band — performing for American voter registration?

Fun with Google News

They have a little “In the News” function. I guess it counts keywords or something. Anyway, it tends to be somewhat eclectic, as seen in the ten terms it currently lists:

Bison Dele (Presumed Dead Basketball Player)

Wal Mart (Profits down)

Typhoon Higos (Not Hurricane Lili?)

Dow Jones (The race to the bottom!)

Mother Teresa (Up for Sainthood)

New Zealand (No idea why)

President Bush (War)

Miles Dabord (Who?)

World Cup (Which one?)

National League East (Baseball playoffs, Valentine fired, Go Braves!)

Saddam Hussein Has Destroyed 90 Percent of Iraq’s Wetlands Heritage

The State Department is apparently trying to get Greens and Multi-Cultis (the Iraqi swampdwellers have an unusual culture) on the side of the war. I’m not sure if this is cynical or if it’s some kind of joke.

The Fat Guy has the story of the dolphins off San Diego, who are resistant to a strain of anthrax… meaning that at some point they’ve been exposed to it. Nobody knows how. And it should be on Ichthypundit (yes, they’re mammals, but the Ichthypundit covers all aquatic animals) but I missed it.
