I can't speak for the poster, but making a joke is not the same as condoning or dismissing a situation.
"Comedy is tragedy plus time." -- Carol Burnett
The amount of time simply differs.

It helps to be in a city with a lot of bored exhibitionists, by which I mean unemployed actors.

Those GI Joe toys were tough. Mine survived everything (stairs, flying off the roof, BB guns) until they ran into the flamethrowers.
My mom still wonders where all her hairspray went.

The nutsos at the We Must Ignite This Couch blog have always said that it was family that made him stay, i.e. a wife that refused to move. People have turned down many excellent opportunities in the past for that very reason.
They are all crazy over there, but they do follow the program closely. Who knows?

I wonder how many other "offensive backs" had 2300 yards passing . . .

It's a much more polite and efficient type of torture, and it costs 60% less! Unfortunately, you do have to mail your victim to Mumbai.

Ski masks? Quick, someone check to see if the Rock was painted green and white!

+1 to you, more if I could.
Hyperbole and a Half is a hilarious blog.

Right on the Wisconsin border at I-80, Iowa also has the Amish-run truck stop. It's not the biggest or flashiest, but damn, the food is good. You can also buy muffins the size of a baby's head, and, if you really are into that kind of thing, drop $500 and up on a handmade quilt.

No! Man (coverage) is an island.

Once they hit 18, they aren't kids any more in the eyes of the law. It doesn't matter who is paying the bills, or how much supervision they may still need.
Blaming the universities for that is a little off-target, in my opinion. They are just caught in the middle between kids and parents who aren't talking to each other.

Yes, hypnocat, I will use the Beveled Guilt button to give money to MGoBlog. I will do it now. It will make me happy.

You know why you can't make jokes about Jonestown?
The punch lines are too long.

I have to assume that RR has already tried to get him, from day 1, and both Shafer and GERG were back-up choices.
I understand if the guy doesn't want to leave a good situation. Which is why we should all hope for a Hindenburg-type end to WVU's season.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||Assuming Bill Stewart||
Assuming Bill Stewart continues to drive WVU into the ground (and they could easily lose their next 4 games), I think RR will try one more time to get Casteel to come up and run the 3-3-5 for us.

Oh good lord. It's October. Babcock is in full tinkering mode. No Abdelkader, "Hey, let's see if this Modano pick-up sticks!," etc. I don't think 11 points out of 16 possible is bad when you are playing guys who will be back on the bus (ahem . . . Kindl) within three weeks.

"However, it should be noted that the award of athletic scholarships on a one-year, renewable basis is the more typical approach taken within higher education for talent-based and academic scholarships in general."
Bull-puckey. I was offered a few academic scholarships from several universities, and not one of them was characterized as one-year. They were all four-year scholarships. I could lose them by not holding up my end of the bargain (my GPA), but the school couldn't terminate them if they decided I was no longer useful.
