The New Yorker want to feed baby sharks baby seals, and they refuse to publish my submissions to their cartoon caption contest.
“Move to strike your honor! The defendant’s acquaintance with Mrs. Haze has no bearing whatsoever on his ‘alleged’ proclivity for underage girls.”
UPDATE: Clap contributor Martin Cassidy chimes in
“That whale was lying! There is no link between toxic loads in adult female blubber and telekinesis in young orcas. End of story.”

James Hetfield’s spoken word commentary on the current Roger Clemens news scandal:
Fearsome Clemens rage!
check my Friendbook page!
Congress are all tools!
posing D.C. fools!
Many years I toil!
rubbing drugs and oils!

Pettitte talk is drivel!
Andy Pettitte die!
I am pitching god!
Mark Twain is a clod!
Mindy’s just a friend!
career is at an end!
no more Hall of Fame!
endless public shame!
memories make me blanche!
yes I own a ranch!!

Last week or abouts I was jazzed to hear that Pink Floyd bassist/auteur/main conceptualist Roger Waters endorsed Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois for the United States presidency. This set off a mad scramble by Hillary Clinton and John McCain to find roughly comparable prog rock deities to sing their praises — Hillary, of course, was slammed in the press for pandering when at last week’s debate she cited “Siberian Khatru” as her favorite Yes song unprovoked.
But I think Obama’s failure to publicly acknowledge Waters gesture signals some Floyd neutrality and it set me thinking — if Roger loves Barack so much, why doesn’t he get the Floyd together and put on some non-linear top volume Pink Floyd rallies across the U.S. this summer? Nothing would spell electoral disaster for Obama’s opponents more than a giant Pink Floyd tour, with dry ice, red, white and blue lasers, and a giant helium-filled John McCain with testicles. If Roger Waters really loved Barack, he would be willing to put up the Floyd trademark again.
