The worst news for Iranians using Gmail in Iran: Iran has banned Gmail! Uh, and the country is trying to make up for it by inventing some national email thing that is decidedly not Gmail: “Iran’s telecommunications agency announced what it described as a permanent suspension of Google Inc.’s email services, saying instead that a [...]
Here’s is a letter that was stuck to the side of the mailbag yesterday and has remained tragically unread, until now.

Besides maybe—maybe—like, “swift-footed Odysseus,” has there ever been an epithet more memorable or enduring than “disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich”? D.F.I.G. Rod Blagojevich is pleading not guilty, baby, for the numerous felonies he was recorded committing and planning to commit. Yesterday in court, he said this: “I challenge the government, if you’re on the [...]
Germany and France will help out Greece so it does not have to default on its debt, which it is apparently on the verge of doing (?).

Atlanta’s public transportation system “MARTA” is in so much trouble today for being racist against Asians. See, the MARTA people, the Martians, renamed the train line that goes where all the Asian people live the “yellow line.” And “yellow,” everyone knows, is the worst Coldplay song ever invented. Everyone just hates it, including Asians.
Did you know there was a Rick Perry-Sarah Palin rally? Can you tell there was a Rick Perry-Sarah Palin rally?
Oh lookee here: Eliot Spitzer’s whore thing Kristin Davis, his “Manhattan Madam,” has announced at some Libertarian convention (?) that she will be running for governor of New York. But woah, Albany insider gossip: this was Spitzer’s exact job in politics, running New York! It is nothing more than a classic tale of “switchsies”: the [...]
Here is a close-up of Sarah Palin’s new temporary tattoo. It raises so many more questions than it answers, technically!

Today Iran began enriching its uranium for what are definitely nuclear-type purposes. [New York Times] Joe Jackson, the alive father of the dead pop star Michael Jackson, believes his son was killed in a conspiracy, which is a thing that commonly happens. [CNN] Childhood obesity is Michelle Obama’s new thing, as obese children are the [...]
Enter: California senatorial candidate Chuck DeVore.
So it turns out Tom Campbell was what was behind the dumpster in Mulholland Drive. Anyway, you can blame your nightmares on tipster “John G.”
Okay so a gloss to yesterday’s masterpiece: We can infer from this email that the control-group sheep, the ones with sheep’s eyes-colored eyes, those were “Carly Fiorina & Co.” stand-ins. (The same ones who were tricked by the child actor playing covert sheep devil Tom Campbell.) In other words, Carly Fiorina wants people to think [...]
America’s #1 internationally famous web-only human being Meg McCabe will be hosting The View today, widely considered to be the Oscars and Grammys combined of February 4th. Anyone remember if this show is live? Anyone think Googling would be “worth it”? [Twitter]
