Looking ahead..

"That a**hole is always hogging everyone's limelight.."

1Lt Bill Preston of the USAFA sends this highlight for the upcoming year:

Next year, Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address BOTH occur on the same day.  "This is an ironic juxtaposition of events: one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication, while the other involves a groundhog."

RUST NEVER SLEEPS UPDATE: I got double-teamed today. This one is from Major Joe Di Mento:

On a bitterly cold winter morning a husband and wife were listening to the radio during breakfast.  They heard the announcer say, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowploughs can get through.”  So the good wife went out and moved her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowploughs can get through."” So the good wife went out and moved her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today.  You must park...."  Then the electric power went out.  The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said, "I don't know what to do.  Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowploughs can get through?"

Then with the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, the husband replied,  "Why don't you just leave the bloody car in the garage this time?"

I thought you were giving your wit a break. Just when I thought it was safe to sneak around.
