I guess when you gotta go, you gotta go.  –  Carrie Bilbao

I’m spending a lovely weekend at a mountain lake with Mistress Matisse and a wonderful gentleman, prior to heading for Oklahoma on Monday.  So I apologize for the paucity of links this week; I barely had time to think, much less scan the news.  Regarding the video (contributed by Franklin Harris):  yes, I know what the songwriter meant, but it isn’t like that adjective hasn’t been used in another way since at least the late 19th century, and it strains credulity to believe that absolutely nobody involved in writing, selecting, producing & marketing this turkey had heard of that.  And that makes it funny.  The links are from Robert King,  Radley BalkoJesse Walker, Radley again and Cassandra Fairbanks, in that order.

Eventually, the item believed to be Napoleon’s penis was bought in an auction…  –  Ishaan Tharoor

As so often happens these days, I got occupied last night and was unable to finish setting everything up by deadline.  Sorry about that!  The video below is from Mike Siegel, who also contributed “accidentally”; Radley Balko gave us “headline”, Skye  “transit”, Lenore Skenazy “camping” and Popehat “call out”.
