What a Jerk.

(Will Burgess/Reuters) I mean, what kind of guy just stands there waving when the one woman in the world who actually loves him has to open the car door herself? Gah.

Happy Labor Day

Oh yeah, lest I forget…a big shout out to all the expectant mothers who were in labor last night, today and/or tonight. And to all you expectant dads who have been getting your hands firmly squeezed while horrendously personal epithets are being shouted at you, as well.

I mean, that *IS* what “Labor Day” is all about right?

via Digby, via Perlstein: PUH-RICELESS!

Alex Linder the founder of VNN and the lead organizer of the rally kicked off events by rushing the clowns in a fit of rage, and was promptly arrested by 4 Knoxville police officers who dropped him to the ground when he resisted and dragged him off past the red shiny shoes of the clowns.

And it only gets better from there. My hat’s off to the 100th ARA for their tour de force. Awesome!

May I turn your attention to:

Okay, look. I’ll post some “real stuff” sometime today. But, since there’s a few of us who dabble and/or excel in photographic snarkery, I believe it is prudent for me to ensure that I don’t duplicate anyone’s efforts. When I finally got done attempting to turn portions of my flesh into charcoal this weekend, I came home, showered, played with the cats (it’s great being able to play with several pussies even when my wife is out of town!), had a couple of beers, sat down with the intention of making a few late-evening posts, and wound up doing client work until about 2:00 a.m. instead, because I’m either really dedicated or was jonesing for some sort of semi-valid excuse to sleep late this morning.

So, I got up a little after 9:00 and started playing catch-up on the blog front, which meant a boat load of reading. And I’m still not done, and won’t be for a bit yet. But, in the meantime, I thought I’d share some recent posts from around the blogosphere that I believe are worthy of your perusal. I know most of you probably already visit these sites or get their feeds, but just in case, I wanted to provide them here, because I found them a great way to start my day today.

I’ll be posting some of my own patented inanity here in a bit. Stay tuned!
