Dick Cheney Facts

February 18, 10

Hahaha! In the vein of Chuck Norris Facts, here are Darth Cheney facts. read ‘em and beware, libs! (But in all seriousness, he and Bush actually saved close to a million Iraqi lives).

(WARNING: Some may be a bit crude for more delicate sensibilities, but these are already the less explicit ones!)

From here, here and here :

Dick Cheney’s only weakness is love.

Dick Cheney takes candy from babies, then later gives it to diabetic babies

When a new senator places his hand on the book to be sworn in, very few realize it is actually the Necronomicon until Cheney laughs and tells them “you’re mine now”.

Bathes every night in the warm, viscous plasma of freshly killed Iraqi insurgents to keep his skin soft.

Ted Kennedy is afraid to drive with him.

After turning down an offer from Mafia Don, Cheney woke up with a horse head in his bed. He grabbed it, held it like a teddy bear, and went back to sleep.

It is widely believed that free-range chickens are far superior to captive ones, as they result in a more tender, juicy, healthful meal. Dick Cheney believes this too, but about homeless people.

Dick Cheney was bitten by a radioactive spider in high school, imparting to the spider Cheney-like powers.

Contrary to conventional wisdom, Dick Cheney actually has the bleeding heart of a liberal…He keeps it in a jar under his desk.

Help Needed – The Friendly Old Owl With the ABCs

February 10, 10

Can anyone help me with this?

As a kid in the 1980s, I used to watch this video tape of a show over and over. It has the following characteristics:

1) Traditional cartoon animation

2) Featured a talking owl who taught about the alphabet – his catch phrase: “Hello again, it’s me! The/Your friendly old owl with the ABCs,” after he woke up from being perched on a tree branch at the start of each episode.

3) Each episode focuses on a letter of the alphabet – as the owl put it, “Big D… And little d.”

4) Once every episode, he would invite us to look inside ‘the magic pot’. The screen would zoom into the mouth of the pot/vase, inside which looks like outer space. Items that start with the letter of the episode would zoom towards us as the owl says out their names. After that was all done, the owl would reach his wing to dig around inside the vase and pull out the letters featured.

5) For the letter X, the owl admitted that there were very few words that begin with that letter. The magic pot was correspondingly sparse, with xylophone and x-ray being the only items.

6) At the end of each episode, a jazzy tune would play (led by clarinet or something similarly high pitched) we would see all the letter of the alphabet lined up in several rows – each big letter next to its small letter – and the letter pairs would light up or bulge out (I forget which) one by one until the featured letter pair was reached, at which point it would light up/bulge out for longer than the others.

7) There were other animals too, kind of guests for certain letters.

I’ve been trying my very best, but I simply cannot find any trace of this show online – not even the name! And I’m no noob when it comes to Google searches either. Unfortunately, there are lots of other cartoon owls to clog up the searches – such as Owl from Winnie the Pooh and Owl Johnson (I love to singa!).

Can anyone help me name this show or even find a copy?

It’s a treasured childhood memory. I even remember the tunes for the magic pot sequence and at the end of each episode.

PM’s Aide To Resign Over Racist Remarks – Why So Unfair to Him When UMNO Full of Racists?

February 3, 10

From The Star 2 Feb 2010:

PM’s aide to resign over alleged racist remarks (Update)

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Nasir Safar, special officer to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, will resign over allegedly racist statements he made, the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement Tuesday.

“The remarks allegedly made by Nasir in Malacca today do not in any way reflect the views of the Prime Minister,” the statement said.

“Nasir never intended to make any derogatory remarks. He spoke at length on the contributions made by all races in developing the country.

“Nevertheless, Nasir apologises for any offence caused … and in light of this, will tender his resignation.”

Online portals earlier reported that Nasir’s remarks at a 1Malaysia seminar at the Malacca International Trade Centre were so offensive that MIC and MCA members in attendance walked out in protest.

He was reported to have said that Chinese and Indian Malaysians were mere “pendatangs” (immigrants) and that Chinese women came to Malaysia to indulge in the “flesh trade.”

Nasir first denied the reports, saying he was just talking about the country’s history.

“I did not say the word ‘pendatang.’ I only said the country has been successful as the Chinese and the Indians from those days until today have been coming here to work,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

He also dismissed claims that he had threatened to revoke the citizenships of non-Malays who demanded that their rights be respected, the portal reported.

MIC and MCA leaders had threatened to lodge police reports over the incident.

Okay, good for a start, but what about all these other guys???
