Greatest Joke of All Time Nominee #3
This is a recent one, they don't have to be old to be classics. Like the last nominee, it's a joke that causes you to laugh and nod your head because it's true.
Here we go:
On the Simpsons a few weeks ago, Bart decides to start his own T-Shirt business (which, btw seems to be the thing to do nowadays, check out Garth's new line of T-Shirts: Piximix).For a further look into slave-wage clothing lines, including Kathy Lee Gifford's line of children's clothing, rent the brilliant new documentary, The Corporation. Not funny, but incredibly eye-opening. Pair it up with The Yes Men and start your own personal anti-globalization movement.
Anyway, Bart goes to a T-Shirt convention only to have his booth crushed by Krusty's mega-booth next to him. Krusty then appears on a wall of television screens and he says, "Krusty Show T-Shirts are made for kids, by kids! And we pass the slavings (wink) on to you!"

'Round Town Blogging
When you've been sober for two weeks, strange ideas start to creep into your head like, "Maybe I'll go on a bike ride." Here's what happens when someone's been so malnurished:
Past the Bay Bridge.
The Marina and Chrissy Field
Fort Point, under the Golden Gate.
Over the bridge and back.
Through the Presidio.
Back to the Mission.

The Worst Music in the World.
Thanks (I think) to Sean for the link. I dare you to sit through this steaming pile of shit:
Move over, Christian Rock! There's a new contender for "Shittiest Music Genre", Patriotism Rock. Please note the use of religious iconography, like angels, but from a jingoist perspective. Obviously, god is on our side, not on the side of those religious, nutball terrorists.

You cannot escape your marketing destiny!
As rumored, here are some photos of Star Wars marketing in action. I think you'll all agree, Mr. Lucas doesn't lend his work to just anyone, only those who's checks clear.
These are all-right, but I have a feeling it's the calm before the marketing storm, or as Dave Attell says, "That type of quiet right before a hooker pisses on you." As we get closer to opening day, I'm sure things will pick up and the marketing choices will get even funnier.
Some advice, though, if you head to the market to gather photos, as I did, make sure your Ipod is fully charged. Mine konked out halfway through the store, making this endeavor infinitely more pathetic. It's definitely fun when jamming out to Death From Above 1979, not so much to supermarket muzak.
Here ya go:
Going to see Revenge of the Sith is a lot like playing the lottery, in that you lose a lot.
A very confused Wookie.
The Powers of an ancient Jedi.
Droids love Cheese!
Mark Hamill? Ewoks? Check the expiration date.
