Trillion-Dollar Greek Lotto Payout Approved by EU, World Economy Saved?

News


  • Eh, all foreigners look alike.Racing to beat the Monday opening of world financial markets, European leaders decided, "Eh, how about a trillion dollars, would that work?" And then somebody screamed (in German), "IDIOT THIS IS ABOUT THE EURO." And then everybody was all, Right, Euros, that's kind of the problem, isn't it?" So, this 750-billion-Euro package of loans and guarantees plus $40 billion US from the IMF should, uh, put off "Acropolis Now" for who knows, maybe a couple of years. Please return to the Economic Recovery now, and pay no attention to the Greek Riots. You know how the Greeks are, so melodramatic and with the "cradle of democracy" and such. Minus Greece and, uh, all those scary computers and the permanently unemployed American underclass and the collapse of the basic system of Capitalism, things are fine! [Bloomberg/Reuters]
  • That "containment dome," which is actually a rectangular box, didn't stop the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico because of methane ice or something. The spill continues, with the oil slicks currently moving west instead of east. [Reuters/Globe and Mail]
  • Sexy single senior Mark Sanford was spotted in Florida celebrating Mothers Day with his Argentine Mistress. [Gawker]

'Miga and Carlos' by Wonkette Operative 'Chica'

It's Father's Day, which means it's time for Yr Dok Zoom and his son to go to brunch and check out the downtown Boise Father's Day Car Show so we can ooh and ah over the very same Corvettes 'n' Mustangs 'n' lovingly-restored classic cars that are there every year, and I will probably once again point at the '68 Beetle converted to run on electricity and say, "Oh look, a Voltswagen!" Traditions matter. (Kid Zoom is 22, so I may also/instead meet him for cocktails later like grown up human people.)

Don't worry about any deep thoughts on the Meaning of Fatherhood here -- we're just going to enjoy the goofy side of dadding, which as far as I'm concerned is the best thing I've done with my time. Especially since my role model for parenting was the unnamed Dad from "Calvin and Hobbes."

As any fool knows, ice rises to the top of liquids because it's cold, and just wants to be closer to the sun so it can warm up. It's all in the book you get when you become a father.
