GERMANS HAVE ENOUGH BEER: You

GERMANS HAVE ENOUGH BEER: You can rest easy. “German brewers are reassuring thirsty consumers there is no imminent danger of beer running out . . . .”

If you doubt this controversial assertion, you should read this story, which reports: “A pair of flying underpants caused a major crash on a German motorway.” A police spokesman explained: “The underpants landed on the driver’s face, causing him to ram the truck ahead from behind.” Apparently unfamiliar with the fact that Germany is still awash in beer, the author of the story states: “It is not known why the men were naked.”

WHAT ABOUT THIN CATS?: Arianna

WHAT ABOUT THIN CATS?: Arianna Huffington paid “no individual state income tax and just $771 in federal taxes during the last two years,” according to an article appearing today in the local Dog Trainer. “In announcing her candidacy last week, Huffington blamed California’s fiscal crisis, in part, on the corrupting influence of special interest groups that have helped ‘corporate fat cats get away with not paying their fair share of taxes.'”

If paying lots of money in taxes is what we are looking for in our Governor, look no further than Arnold, who paid $20 million in taxes in 2000 and 2001. “‘Arnold likes paying taxes,’ said Paul Wachter, Schwarzenegger’s investment manager.”
