NJ's Kean U. Dean Lies on Resume, Wins

Good thing it happened in New Jersey.

Despite the school hiring a team of lawyers to confirm the deed, and students petitioning for his ouster, he is getting off scott free with the Board's blessing.

What a country.

He said he would never claim to have been acting academic dean at Avila College in Missouri, nor would he say he had published “over 50 technical articles in major publications,” as the data sheets state.

Best Obama Joke Ever

Last Tuesday, as President Obama got off the helicopter in front of the White House, he was carrying a baby piglet under each arm.
A Marine guard snapped to attention, saluted and said: "Nice pigs, sir."

The President replied, "These are not pigs - these are authentic Arkansas Razorback Hogs. I got one for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and I got one for Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi."
The squared away Marine again snapped to attention, saluted and said,
"Excellent trade, sir."

Don't get your news from Facebook, folks.

These kids killed it with this hoax.  Unless of course the whole post was a level.

The Monk Gets It

Two monks are walking along a river when they see a prostitute trying to cross. One of the monks carries her across, sets her down, then the two monks keep on going. The monk who didn’t carry her gets more and more agitated. Finally he asks, “why did you do that? You know we are not supposed to even touch women like that!”
And the monk who carried her said, “I left her by the river. Why are you still carrying her?”
That’s the secret of productivity and forgiveness. To always think, why am I still carrying her?

NJ - still not getting it

According to this AP article right here, Amazon is considering opening two million-plus square foot warehouses in NJ and creating 1,500 or more jobs in the State.  In return they are asking for a 22 month tax holiday.

Senator Ray Lesniak is getting involved in the worst way possible.

"It's a bad deal for New Jersey, no matter what," he said. "We're giving up hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues we should be getting and we're also putting at risk jobs in our retail centers and central business districts throughout the state."
Zero might be the number of dollars in tax revenue that NJ ends up getting.  Come on Christie, get involved.

Geddy Lee Looks Like a Harry Potter Character

Tom Sawyer never gets old though.

A modern-day warrior 
Mean mean stride, 
Today's Tom Sawyer 
Mean mean pride. 

Though his mind is not for rent, 
Don't put him down as arrogant. 
His reserve, a quiet defense, 
Riding out the day's events. 
The river 

And what you say about his company 
Is what you say about society. 
Catch the mist, catch the myth 
Catch the mystery, catch the drift. 

The world is, the world is, 
Love and life are deep, 
Maybe as his eyes are wide. 
[ Lyrics from: ] 
Today's Tom Sawyer, 
He gets high on you, 
And the space he invades 
He gets by on you. 

No, his mind is not for rent 
To any god or government. 
Always hopeful, yet discontent, 
He knows changes aren't permanent, 
But change is. 

And what you say about his company 
Is what you say about society. 
Catch the witness, catch the wit, 
Catch the spirit, catch the spit. 

The world is, the world is, 
Love and life are deep, 
Maybe as his skies are wide. 

Exit the warrior, 
Today's Tom Sawyer, 
He gets high on you, 
And the energy you trade, 
He gets right on to the friction of the day.

Joy Tsin Lau - Philadelphia Dim Sum

<-- That's a chicken foot.

My wife and I were going down to Philly around Thanksgiving and I Googled "best dim sum Philadelphia".

We decided to go to Joy Tsin Lau and it was awesome.  One of the serving ladies gave me a free chicken foot so she could laugh at me, "Eat skin.  No eat bones."

The Dim Sum is awesome.  The service is quick and workmanlike.  Prices are great.

We might go back with the kids today.
