Oh Yeah. This is the face of evil.
And how come these guys are running so fast?
My favorite jack hole's take?
Today is Kentucky Derby day here in the US. I'm no horse race fan at all, with even the Melbourne Cup back home leaving me pretty cold. This morning, though, I got some spam encouraging me to bet on the big race and I'm wondering if these are really the names of the horses:
The favourite, on this list, is Empire Maker. Come on! Then the next two are Ten Most Wanted and Peace Rules. I flicked through the list half-expecting to see one called Saddam's Wasted or Stallion of Mass Destruction (actually, apparently there was a horse called that, but they can't find it anywhere).
The Kentuck Derby is a race for three year olds.
Every horse born in 2000. And named in 2000. Pre-Iraq, Pre-Afghanistan, Pre-September 11, 2001, Pre-USS Cole incident even.
Commission an article from this guy?
He tries to be funny about Iraq, the War on Terror. He uses a horse race as his base for the funny, revealing his ignorance about horse racing and his general ignorance about funny. He even declares his ignorance about horse racing.
People who do not like the Melbourne Cup should be left out on a mountain to die.
