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 biggest mass extinction in the history of the world was caused by carbon dioxide. That’s the conclusion of a shocking new study published last week in Science Magazine.

According to that study - the Permian Mass Extinction - which occurred 252 million years ago - started when a group of volcanoes erupted in Siberia - sending tons upon tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
