Own a piece of imbecilic history

skull and bonesWho would not want to possess the juvenile bullshit of the swells after 125 plus years of indecency?

A human skull that apparently was turned into a ballot box for Yale’s mysterious Skull and Bones society is going on the auction block.

Christie’s estimates the skull will sell for $10,000 to $20,000 when it is auctioned on Jan. 22. Fittingly, the auction house has agreed to keep the seller’s name a secret.

It’s like the entire Bush family learned particular lessons they’d apply to brown people the world over.

And you cannot tell me that George W. Bush didn’t make use of this special bit of debasement:

The skull is fitted with a hinged flap

Just think how many politicians and Wall Street Bankers prepared for what they later did to the rest of us by what they did to that skull.

UPDATE: Speaking of Connecticut (and unrelated to Joe Lieberman) Chris Dodd joins Byron Dorgan on the retiring Democratic Senators list. So which Republican will Joe Lieberman endorse?

New Jersey to-do list for Wednesday and Thursday



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
