"Mike and Jon, Jon and Mike—I've known them both for years, and, clearly, one of them is very funny. As for the other: truly one of the great hangers-on of our time."—Steve Bodow, head writer, The Daily Show

"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

Things And More Things

1. Rahul Mahajan has a depressing radio commentary about Iraq.

2. Imad Khadduri, the former Iraqi nuclear physicist, is always worth a visit.

3. Eric Carlson of New Revolution calculates that the cost of the Iraq war to date equals the annual GDP of the world's 65 poorest countries.

4. Bob Harris has finally come clean and admitted his jealousy of my left buttock.

I can certainly understand the bitter disappointment that Bob—and so many others—feel as my left buttock triumphs over and over again. Nevertheless, he at least can console himself with his site being the #1 Google search result for "rocket-fueled breasts"; "giant demon bunny"; "blurred squirrel"; "jazz hyrax"; "Team Chimpy"; "fish and wildlife hate America"; and "pudublogging."

5. You've probably see this already... but if not, here's some good advice on how—when the Elder Gods come—you can be among the first to be eaten. (Via Scratchings; hail Eris.)

6. Awwwwwww.

Jonathan, it's more dire than you think! They're not chanting “Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'hagl fhtagn,” but “Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Schiavo wgah'hagl fhtagn.” When Terri's brain finally completely liquifies, she will rise and EAT US ALL!
