Just a Funny Little Thing I heard on NPR

It seems that the Arab press is having problems with news stories about Frances' new Prime Minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault. It seems that his name translates in Arabic to "his penis". Makes the News Hour a little awkward.

We had both a Dick as president, and a Dick as VP, and both were corrupt. The Dick with a new heart is pushing MD to allow gay marriage, for his daughter.

I was told by an Iraqi co-worker back in the day, that "DOLE" meant DICK!

Not "penis", but "DICK"!

"Bob Dole thinks that 'Bob Dole's' name shouldn't be made fun of."

(That impersonation is actually funny if you could hear me do it and see me with a pen in my hand...)

Dan Akroyd did the BEST Bob Dole impersonation.

"His name's not 'Pierre'... it's 'PETE'! I know it, you know it, the American people KNOW it!"

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
