Pfizer solves vexing societal issue

Pfizer recently announced that they have solved one of the most vexing problems ever to be visited upon society. They have given us another weapon in the War on Dog Obesity. Recent years have demonstrated a noticable increase in dogs thinking suicidally due to poor body image, something the dog media would do well to think about as they continually focus on only the dogs that adhere closest to the "breed standard."

Living with the disease

AKC and the National Kennel Club representatives defended their practices as they are only providing material that other canine consumers want to see, but they are increasing money to their foundations seeking to promote education "helping dogs to focus more on inner beauty."

A HHTB nod goes to Pfizer for dedicating the necessary funds to an issue that really matters.

Pelosi exultant over new Hammer

In November of last year (’06 is now “last year”? Already?) Rick Santorum turned the idea of bringing children into the viper’s nest that is the political arena right on its head. Kids be used to push not only the approval of terrible legislation, but, as Rick demonstrates in this live field test, they could have potential use as guilt cannons.

Voting Democrat destroys Christian families!

It was a demonstration of pure Republican ingenuity in vilifying the opposing party, to be sure.
Until, that is, Nancy introduced the nation to her new security team--all 47 of them.

Look at how shiny it is!

There were a few skeptics among the audience until Pelosi laid the reasoning behind her bold move. She said that as the first female Speaker it was important to come from a position of strength, and being surrounded by a team of men could do great harm to her and the nation in a time of war.

While not having the time to introduce all the members of her new team, Pelosi did highlight a few of her team that stood out before being whisked away to the coronation after party.

Steven (closest to the right side of the chair) has ADD and is great for spotting snipers as he never focuses on one thing for too long and succumbing to the dreaded “tunnel vision” that comes from staying on task.

Directly behind girl with baby stands Scott, who only looks bored and a bit slow. He provides the necessary focus that Steven lacks. His laser-like subdued intensity underscores a keen eye for spotting anyone who looks like they want to say “impeach.”

The two in blue flanking either side of Pelosi are James and Justin. These brothers have been trained since birth and have been recently been rewarded with high-level black belt ranks in the art of Sad Face. It is rumored that James (to Pelosi’s left) can not only make the cutest sad face ever, but that his skills have developed to the point that he is now able to fire sadness laden tears in three-tear bursts. When asked about this yet to be seen skill, he was quoted as saying, “Wait till someone mentions impeachment in front of my Grandma, then you’ll see. But I’m telling you, you don’t want to see that. It will be too sad and too cute. Our job today is to make sure things don’t get to that point.”

After ending the session to attend other celebrations in her honor, Pelosi could not be reached for comment about whether or not her new hammer would be used to nail the door to impeachment shut for good. However, top aides anonymously stated that there were inter-office rumors going around that the new Speaker has plans to use her new hammer on the back of as many heads as possible in order to “more firmly plant various lips onto her ass.”



New Year, New Pro's

Typical to the start of a New Year, the first week back to work has been thoroughly nuts. There’s something about the Christmas and New Year holidays that causes folks to forget how everything functions within a work environment and, per usual, the entire first week back is spent rebuilding normal routines and practices in the effort to recapture the normalcy of the environment that existed only a few weeks before.

It’s as if, in an effort to punish the humans that went on holiday and didn’t give them enough attention, the infernal machines hold their most inconvenient breakdowns for that first week when everyone comes back in order to cause maximum headache.

Now that the back to work dust has finally begun to settle, it’s back to the fun stuff.

Many congrats to all the folks that will be starting this year with well deserved new blogging digs.
Speaker, Maudie, Change100, and Calistri all joining Linda’s burgeoning poker press empire, and the almighty Drizz blogging over at Keep Your Poker Face.

It may be old news by now, but congrats to all nonetheless.

We now return to the regularly scheduled political program, already in progress.
