Hotel chain offers a room at the inn for Marys and Josephs

Just in time for the holidays - if you and your betrothed's names are Mary and Joseph, Travelodge has a room for you.
Almost 30 Josephs and Marys had already signed up for the free night's stay at the Travelodge, said Shakila Ahmed, a spokeswoman for the hotel chain.
Shakila Ahmed?
Ahmed said the offer, which will run from Christmas Eve to Twelfth Night -- December 24 to January 5 -- had been very well-received.

"We've had a lot of interest. I think people like the fact that it resonates with the Nativity story at a time when the actual meaning of Christmas often becomes forgotten in festive overkill," she said.
Perhaps I was hasty in my prejudice.

Nonetheless, it's a good thing for Joseph. I understand Mary's been riding his ass for days.

California Budget Crisis

I'm sure, dear readers, that California's budget crisis has NOTHING to do with the way the state coddles and encourages illegals to take advantage of the state's welfare, educational, and medical programs.

Really. Quite sure.

SF weapons training

Now THIS is highly entertaining stuff. Make sure you read the scrolling text at the bottom of the screen for that extra added effect.

Pilfered shamelessly from Cowboy Blob's site...

And oh yeah, if you're at work, turn the volume waaaaaaaay down.

Other than to say, Sean Penn is an idiot.
