We've got a pic of what is possibly the fattest human baby ever born...she weighed in at 17 pounds!
Plus the joke at this year's Black Entertainment Awards, the charming story of a Russian engineer mistaken for a beauty contest judge!
And hey, how are those Hollywood anti-war movies doing?

The BET Awards...Following the Mantra, Thanks to Al and Jesse
I'm sorry folks, but black people will never help their cause, if they have a cause, so long as those with influence adhere to the mantra that isn't the truth.
As I covered on my own Blog as regards the Jena 6, these kids were NOT heros and they are being tried in a fair trial as our constitution provides in front of a jury of their peers:
Justin Barker, the white victim, was cold-cocked from behind, knocked unconscious and stomped by six black athletes. Barker, luckily, sustained no life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital three hours after the attack.
Below, how these fine kids who attacked, by a factor of SIX yon ladies and gems, a white student. Such heroes these fellows, surely they deserve to be admired and given a standing ovation at the Black Entertainment Awards, right?
Two of the teens enmeshed in the nationally known "Jena Six" case helped present the most anticipated award during Black Entertainment Television's Hip Hop Awards show broadcast Thursday night.
Carwin Jones and Bryant Purvis were introduced by Katt Williams, a comedian and the awards show's host, as two of the students involved in a case of "systematic racism."
"By no means are we condoning a six-on-one beat-down," Williams said during his introduction of the teens, one of whom is still facing attempted murder charges in connection with the attack on white student Justin Barker. "... But the injustice perpetrated on these young men is straight criminal."
As Jones and Purvis walked onto the stage at the Atlanta Civic Center, where the awards show was filmed on Saturday, they were greeted by a standing ovation.
"They don't look so tough, do they?" Williams joked as the teens stepped up to the podium.
This isn't about white people I say to yon reader, black or white. This is about a gang of thugs who jumped a kid, black or white but in this case white, SIX of them, and beat him to unconsciousness. And don't buy that Justin Barker wasn't hurt...these fine six black adolescents who got such a deserving standing ovation, had to be pulled off Barker. There's no telling whether they would have killed him or not.
I reserve forever my right to have naught but utter disdain for every member of that audience who gave these thugs a standing ovation and I reserve the right to express my disdain on this Blog. I'll take it one step further and say I have disdain for every black person watching that show the night these thugs got honored who didn't call in and loudly protest. I don't know who they are but until the majority of the decent, hard-working blacks, and I know they're out there, do something to put an end to this adoration of the bad I'll give black people wide space. Hey, if they think these kids jumping one kid SIX TO ONE are heroes I don't trust them.
Of course Jesse and Al will just call me a racist and bribe my Blog provider, Blogspot, for funds for allowing my racist self to post on their Blog. Jesse and Al, will, naturally, keep the funds Blogspot pays to shut them up for daring to let my bigoted self exercise my freedom of speech.
This has nothing to do with white or black, it has only to do with right or wrong, and while Jesse and Al might politically correct white folk to silence, no one can change what we THINK.
The Godless Are At It Again
Africa is being decimated by Aids and 25% of all African men will be rapists at some point in their lives. Iranian youth are slowly being jailed and tortured into political submission for the sake of the cadre of Imam oppressors. Women still cannot drive in Saudi Arabia and Palestine, after over twenty years of UN rule is still a ghetto.
And yet a big U.S. government bureaucracy, something about national cemeteries, has nothing better to do than to sit around and ban the mention of God at burial ceremonies of veterans.
Sheesh, can't they get a life? Don't the birds sing sweetly in the world of miserable God-haters? Do flowers grow pretty and bright in the dark and dead world where God's light should never shine and His name should never be mentioned?
Yeah, some Moonbat in California complained that the 13 point folding of the flag at a veteran's burial ceremony involves some mention of God and darn this is awful.
Well the American Legion isn't changing a thing.
It will be interesting to see if the National Cemetery Association gets these veterans thrown in jail for daring to mention God. The National Cemetery Association is in charge of the country's veterans' cemeteries and I'm thinking hey, a government bureaucracy. First thing right there, they gotta make themselves feel important so they sit around and come up with this crap.
You can't make this shit up.
An American Legion commander in California says he and other veterans will defy a newly imposed ban on flag-folding recitations that include references to God.
The World's Fattest Baby
ALEISK, Russia (Reuters Life!) - Looking after the possibly the world's fattest baby is not easy -- especially when you live in a cramped apartment in Siberia and have 11 other children to care for.
Tatyana Khalina gave birth on September 17 to Nadia, who weighed a whopping 7.75 kg (17.1 lb) at birth. A month later Nadia was finally able to go home from hospital to the family's three-bedroom apartment in Aleisk, a town in Russia's Far East.
The thing about this story is that the article linked goes on and on about how poor this family is. Yes, 11 children in an apartment can get old. But come on, the baby weighed SEVENTEEN POUNDS! Evidently there's plenty of food even if it is mainly beets and bread as the article maintains.
When Will the Liberals Get It?
Merle Streep...remember her? Heh. She actually sobbed before congress that alar be removed from apples..."for the children". Well there was no alar in apples but when has a Hollywood Moonbat ever let the truth get in the way?
Oh, a Reese Witherspoon, Susan Sarandon...a Moonbat if ever there was one, and, of course, other international relations experts Cherize Theron and Tommy Lee Jones...not a one of these wise people who would lead our stupid selves is making a dent in the anti-war movie genre.
What, you say you didn't know there was such a thing as an anti-war genre?
Maybe the failure of these films to thrive could be the reason why.
It doesn't matter how many Oscar winners are in front of or behind the camera - audiences are proving to be conscientious objectors when it comes to this fall's surge of antiwar and anti-Bush films.
Both "In the Valley of Elah" and, more recently, "Rendition" drew minuscule crowds upon their release, which doesn't bode well for the ongoing stream of films critical of the Iraq war and the Bush administration's wider war on terror.
Americans just don't want to bother paying good money to see this crap. Someday the Moonbats will get it.
Rice-A-Roni Inventor Dies
People my age grew up with that cute little jingle..”Rice-A Roni…The San Francisco Treat”. There were, of course, cable cars traveling up and down the steep hills of that city. Cable Cars adorned with advertisements of, but of course, Rice-A-Roni. I even made Rice-A-Roni on a semi-regular basis.
The creator of that bit of genius died recently and I didn’t even know the man was ill!
Along with his brothers, DeDomenico, the son of Italian immigrants, created the packaged side dish of rice and pasta for their San Francisco-based family business. "The San Francisco treat" became known in the 1960s through TV commercials that featured the city's cable cars.
The DeDomenico family also invented Ghirardelli Chocolate and the Napa Valley Wine Train.
British Engineer Mistaken for Rock Star In Russia
He was interviewed on TV and met Vladimir Putin!
A British engineer judged a beauty contest, appeared on national television and shook hands with the Russian President after being mistaken for an international rock star.
Neil Smith, 52, was working as the electrical projects manager at a new steelworks in Siberia when he suddenly became the subject of everyone's attention.
It was a mistake in translation. Smith mentioned to a bartender where he was staying for an assignment at a steelworks company in Siberia that he once played guitar in some of the local pubs back home.
Next thing he knew, Smith was swept into a Russian world of glamour and even judged a beauty contest!
Women Gets Toothbrush Stuck in Nose
…and didn’t know it!
She had been brushing her teeth when her husband accidentally jostled her. She knew the toothbrush broke in half but she couldn’t find the other half.
From the Mumbai Mirror:
Doctors at Sapna Health Care Hospital in Ghatkopar, who operated on a 31-year-old woman on Saturday, were shocked at what they saw lodged in her nose — a three-inch piece of a broken toothbrush!
The offending object had been lodged in the woman’s nasal cavity for two long months and had been causing her terrible pain.
The ENT specialist said the toothbrush likely entered her nasal cavity through her mouth.
Gotta See This Bird
And it’s for a good cause! This bird dances to the Back Street Boys and does a wonderful job. For a real smile, click in and scroll down to the middle of the page.
Bird Dances to Back Street Boys
To the snobs who consider Pop Culture too silly to watch or indicative of nothing, I argue that those things that intrigue the masses are as much of an indicator of where the society is going as much as ongoing political events.
Below, some very "popular" Pop Culture posts on this Blog.
The Famous Deviled Egg post. Indeed. For in all the world a society is judged as much by the quality of its deviled eggs as it is by its pop icons. In this post I immortalize the proper and ONLY way to prepare deviled eggs now and forever and ever, amen.
Here's a Pop Culture featuring a woman with a 15" waist. Which is about the circumference of my thigh.
A post featuring the largest breasts in the world. Enough said.
