Nuke the Punchline - Cheap Money! What's Not to LIKE?

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:

State Department Officials Spent $630,000 to Get More Facebook “Likes”. Other Recent Expenditures…


#5 walruskkkch: $1.3 billion to buy the approval of the Morsi regime in Egypt. Ooops.

#4 Jeff in South Dakota : $1.3 billion on secret de-coder rings so messages to each other won’t be read be those sneaky pests over at the NSA.

#3 Fangbeer : 2.6 million worth of Greyhound buses to throw people under.

#2 Dohtimes $30,000,000 for blank checks with extra large in-the-amount-of boxes.

And my favorite straight line of the day was from The Mad Analyst


State Department Officials Spent $630,000 to Get More Facebook “Likes”. Other Recent Expenditures...another $440,000 investing in Monopoly sets. Only $22 on Amazon, and each one comes with a cool $15K in cash!

Cinnamon Rolls to The Mad Analyst!


Thankfully, I made cinnamon rolls last night. It's gonna be a while before we'll have cookies again... :(

Well...I guess Keln overturned my coup. :(  I had no idea that omnipotence could be so much fun! I sure am gonna miss it. Anyhow...though the struggle was bloodless...it was not without its casualties...But be strong, guys. I'll figure out how to start baking again as soon as I can. We can get through this.

My favorite NP punchlines:


The TSA is testing the use of bomb-sniffing dogs at airports. They're also testing...

#3 JeffersonFan : Suitcase-rooting pot-bellied pigs.

#2 Oppo: Air traffic control-freaks.

My favorite line was from Bob B.:

The TSA is testing the use of bomb-sniffing dogs at airports. They're also testing...our patience.

Cinnamon Rolls to Bob B.! 

I think you're gonna have to share with The Mad Analyst for now...

    Oh yeah. That's terrible. I'm not sure how I'll bear that kind of punishment.
