As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sock puppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself, alot.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.


And last week I introduced a new idea: a poll to determine the best sock puppet from the week before. Well, the winner was… “If you don’t get a stiffy, your case will be iffy” by “Czechoslovakia Immigration Officer” obviously a joking reference to this post.

The winner, whoever you really are, gets the valuable prize of… respect.

And let’s do it again. Using one of those polling widgets, I have nominated (imho) the five best sock puppet comments from the last sockpuppet Friday (the fit in the poll code widget). So vote for what you think is the best. And be sure to look at all the options in the drop down menu before choosing.

Which is the funniest sock puppet comment from last friday? free polls

Forty Years Ago Today…

…the North Tower of the World Trade Center was completed.

I was always struck, on 9-11, how a woman said something to this effect: “I don’t see buildings.  I see people.”  Meaning that whatever concern she felt for the buildings themselves, was completely eclipsed by her concern for the people who were inside when they fell.  So in some ways noting this date runs counter to that, but still I wanted to note it.

We must never forget the lesson we learned that day, more than nine years ago.  Evil exists and it must be confronted.

Hat tip, Big Government.
