Because Here’s a Couple That Makes Sense

I seem to be coming onto several amusing pictures today, like for instance, this one of President Bush and softball luminary Jenny Finch. Look at that smile he’s flashing her, he’s totally down. I also wonder if Jenny Finch regrets marrying failed D-Backs pitcher Casey Daigle; she should have waited until she saw how he did at the major league level…Anyway, come up with your own captions for this and post them in the comments below.

Bush huh? Shame "Landing Strip" didn't fit, hehehehe

He Shoots He Scores!

Here’s a video of a semi-amazing air hockey shot, I’m putting it up while trying to recover from enjoying myself so much from watching the ESPY’s*!

*Don’t worry, I was just kidding, I could never force myself through that shlock.

Tandem Biking Means You’ve Got At Least 1 Friend

I’m so very confused.

Saw this photo over at Barstool Sports, I’m still totally unsure as to why basketball All Stars Steve Nash and Baron Davis are riding a tandem bike around Santa Monica dressed like giant nerds, but hey, why not!

Feel free to come up with some good captions or explanations for whatever the hell is going on here.

Lakers Looking to Change Up Their Team

The Los Angeles Lakers were unable to deal effectively with the Celtics in the finals this year, being simply overmatched. To fix that issue, the Lakers are taking this off-season to retool and prepare for next year. Over the weekend they brought in a slew of hot, new prospects for a try-out.

Oh, did I mention that the try-outs were for the Laker girls?

Ah, those plastic-y dye blonds of LA, what a land! Looks like Jack Nicholson will have a slew of new prospects next season. There’s plenty more over at the Lakers Blog so feel free to check them out, I won’t take offense.

Everybody Get Your Nipples Oiled and Ready!

In an extremely rare moment of government, the right thing was actually done earlier today. A federal appears court in Philadelphia today threw out the $550,000 indecency fine that the FCC leveled against CBS from the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show.

For once, reason and common sense came out, I for one am shocked, I’m worried this might be a sign of the coming apocalypse. The three-judge panel determined that the FCC “acted arbitrarily and capriciously” for issuing a fine for the brief image of Janet Jackson’s nipple ring.

The ruling found that the FCC abandoned its 30-year practice of fining broadcasters only when it was “pervasive as to amount to ‘shock treatment’ for the audience. Like any agency, the FCC may change its policies without judicial second-guessing. But it cannot change a well-established course of action without supplying notice of and a reasoned explanation for its policy departure.”

This means that the Republican FCC can no longer capriciously decide for the rest of America when something is offensive. The ruling shows that the government overreacted, of course, since the networks got so scared by the fine in the first place, it is probably already too late, the damage has been done. Now there is no such thing as live television anymore, with everything on a delay just in case a scary stray nipple makes an appearance. So it goes I suppose, but at least the right thing was done today, I guess after 7.5 years the government had to do SOMETHING right, I mean, sheer probability would dictate that…

Stick around after the jump for the NSFW image that launched the hooplah in the first place. Continue reading ‘Everybody Get Your Nipples Oiled and Ready!’
