Pointing and laughing

Teapartier sign...via Messay Shoakena at

Apparently, the rest of the world pays more attention to our politics than we do…without having to suffer through it…or maybe by this time they just point and laugh?

The social network and dating website asked 30,000 people across 15 countries to name both the “funniest,” or best at making people laugh,” and “the least funny” nationality.

Americans took the funniest prize

And all this before our latest round of Weiner jokes and tea-wrestling.

Apparently, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and our newest “target audience” Yemen were not allowed to participate.

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 .
