Nuke the Dadgum Punchline: Fuel Effarceient

Harvey over at IMAO has another straight line of the day up, and so it is time to pick the winners of the last one:

In order to meet new fuel economy standards, car makers...

#5 blarg: ...experimenting with new fuels like rainbows and unicorn farts.

#4 Rodney Dill: ...proposed that Obama issue an executive order to shorten the length of a mile by 10%.

#3 g: ...are hanging old tires on the doors and reclassifying them as tug boats.

#2 tomg51: ...are adding miles that the universe expands to the distance traveled.

And the best punchline goes to spacemonkey:

In order to meet new fuel economy standards, car makers started making cars out of a light disposable substance; Obama’s promises.

Congratulations spacemonkey!


The best punchline for the last Nuking Politics straight line was from Anonymiss:  

If Subway foot-long subs are only eleven inches, where did the other inch go? Well, a baker's dozen is 13. A Barack's dozen is 11. 

Congratulations Anonymiss!


Now here's a line for you guys to try:

When Obama needs a quick bite...


  1. ...he and his entourage of reporters take a dozen limos to the local Ray's Hellburger, while DC Police work overtime tying up commuter traffic, so that Obama can do a photo-op showing that he eats at fast food joints just like a regular, middle class guy. MAN OF THE PEOPLE!!11!!1

  2. ..."Here Bo, come on boy, come to daddy."

  3. ...he signs his latest Executive Order at his day job as a circus geek. Mmmmmmmmmm chicken!!!

  4. ...he orders Kobi beef and hopes it is still fresh from the last time Michelle had a cow over what other people not named Obama eat.

  5. He comes to me. "No Mr. President, when I said "Bite me" that's not what I meant."
