Nuke the Punchline - Suicide Bomb or Nuke? ... Potatoes / Potahtoes...

Harvey over at IMAO has posted a new straight line of the day, so it is time to choose the winners of the last one:

Harry Reid Wants Nevada to Be Defined As a “Border State”. Also to Be Defined…

#5 rodney dill: as a Barnes and Noble, and an Amazon state.

#4 frogmouth: what, exactly, is “cowboy poetry”?

#3 rodney dill:…inconceivable… Vizzini never quite did get the hang of it.

#2 arik: Mary Landrieu as Obama’s new “Geography Czar.”

And my favorite straight line of the day was from rodney dill:

Harry Reid Wants Nevada to Be Defined As a “Border State”. Also to Be Defined…a ‘Suicide Bomber’ as an ‘Instantaneous Community Organizer’.

 Extra cookies to rodney dill!
NOTE: I fear there may be an outcry of favoritism from the masses...but Rodney Dill's lines today just struck me as extra especially clever and made me laugh. Great job, Rodney :) (Btw, Rodney, I got the flowers yesterday. That was SO SWEET of you!)

[HONORABLE MENTION to a last minute entry from a reader over my shoulder:

Harry Reid Wants Nevada to Be Defined As a “Border State”. Also to Be Defined is Frank J's plan for reaching that goal: Nuke the San Andreas Fault. 

Last Minute Cookies to reader over my shoulder!

If, like me, you're worred about the government spying on you...you need to go see: Orwell? Oh Well by our brilliant Les. Apparently, we can sleep peacefully, because Ms. Napolitano has got us covered.  :) Cookies to Sketchy!


Lots of great responses to my line today :) My favorites:

Speaking in Ireland, Michelle Obama said...

#3 Bob B: "this is the first time I've been proud of Ireland"

#2 Oppo: "I'm here to promote feminist rights. Erin Go Braghless!"

And my favorite line was from Bob in Feenicks:

Speaking in Ireland, Michelle Obama said..."Ireland reminds me so much of Endor. And leprechauns look just like naked green ewoks."

Cookies to Bob in Feenicks!

Here's a new line for you to try:

Russia is selling helicopters to the U.S. for 572 million. Russia will also... 


  1. ...include the rotors and landing gears for a small additional $3 billion "handling fee".

    1. That's what you get when you send for a Russian mail order bird.

  2. ...provide ecologically-friendly engines that run on vodka and borscht.

  3. ...explain to Obama that communism sucks.

  4. . . . cite the fact that the United States bought the helicopters as evidence that the USA is a war-mongering imperialist nation.

  5. ...not mention the ones that fell off the truck when it took a shortcut through Syria.

  6. Enclose a second helicopter (just pay separate shipping and handling) for FREE!!! if you call within the next thirty minutes. That's TWO genuine Russian helicopters for the low low price of just $572 million.

  7. ...free vodka saturated copter pilots

  8. (Thanks, no flowers, but at least an honorable mention)

  9. ...accept payment in Super Bowl paraphernalia.

  10. ...remove the Winnebago decal and the Camp Jellystone parking sticker if we ask.
