Earthquake as Metaphor

“A 3.6 magnitude earthquake rattled the Washington area early Friday, with thousands of residents reporting that they felt the ground shake as they slept or were waking. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered in Montgomery County and struck at 5:04 a.m.” [WaPo]


Some rough beast is slouching its way up from the bowels of hell to collect Dick Cheney’s soul.

My sister’s house is right near the epicenter, but they’re in Delaware at the beach. My mom felt it in Rockville, but didn’t know what it was and went back to sleep.

@blogenfreude: That’s what happened to me in Oregon. 4 a.m. quake, thought it was cats jumping on the bed.


used to happen to me in LA

uhhhhh, why is the dog shaking the bed?

“lay down and go to sleep” as the dog cowers in the corner.

@blogenfreude: It shook my sister’s house in Rockville a little bit, enough to spook the dog and for her husband to guess what it was, but apparently she dismissed that out of hand. Some folks I know in Upper NW felt it, too, but I slept straight through.

does it really get better than this?

Jihad monkey!

it earns a worst person
complete with Hong Kong reenactment video.

@Mistress Cynica: Jesus, he looks just like a guy I dated in DC. Gave me a bit of a scare when I clicked on your link. And yes, that’s officially hot for DC.

Haley Barbour finally had a bowel movement.


Haley Barbour is a bowel movement.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Please. The name alone qualifies him for douche-dom.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: @Mistress Cynica: Absolutely. I’m surprised there isn’t a Roman numeral at the end of his name.

@Mistress Cynica: Is it pronounced
a) Cartay Pacific
b) Carter With R Silent
c) Douche
d) Enema would prompt another earthquake.

TJ: Whoo-hoo! Governator slapped down by judge in attempt to pay state employees minimum wage!

@Mistress Cynica: Can’t wait for the a la Carte jokes.
