10/9/2009 - The Day "the ONION" took over

Just as a reminder why I think 10/9/2009 will go down in the history books as the day on which The Onion clearly took over the world, I'll give you my 4 favorites of yesterday's headlines - in order of Onion-ness:

Taliban condemn Obama as Nobel Prize winner

NASA's 'Moon Bombing:' Crashing in a Crater, Looking for Ice

Marge Simpson Playboy Cover a Bold Controversial Cartoon

China calls on world media to tell nothing but the truth

Apropos the Onion, Mad Minerva pointed me to the following quiz: Actual Newspaper Story or the ONION Headline? I scored 8/12. This solid 67% (6 above the average at that time) qualifies for calling myself "Media Expert" from now on, I think.

Purpose Of Life

Well, I guess this blog is on hiatus again. But don't worry, new blog posts are piling up in my brain and will be released shortly...

Where was I? Oh, yes... Moments ago, one of my Twitter contacts (or, as we in the Twitterverse call them, followers) just came up with the best characterization of me ever. I could not say it better, even if I tried:

Not sure what this guy is up to, but makes me smile in 9 out of 10.

Sometimes, I catch myself thinking that my purpose in life should be to make everyone smile in, say, 95 out of 100.
