    Let’s get the rock paper scissors thing right

    Paper covers Rock
    Rock breaks/bends scissors
    Scissors cuts paper

    or did someone really learn this differently.
    Anyway, they probably would consider rock paper scissors a better decision than hanging chads.

    Paul, someone showed me that Spongmonkey site yesterday, LMAO, couldn’t resist trying to work it into a comment or caption.

  14. Dill: The rock paper scissors line was a jab at Dean’s stupidity and Kerry’s inclination to be a cheating liar; just look at the expressions on their faces. I was being ironical.

    “In other news, President Bush invited black members of the White House press corps to survey his collection of Gap Band and Luther Vandross LPs.”

  19. phil massey says:

  20. Timmer says:

    Well, now we know where they got the CGI models/frames for the little squirrels in that insurance commercial.
