injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

No Brakes?  No problem…

According to, interest in the Prius actually increased after the recent news that the thing may not stop when you step on the brake pedal.  Reports are that at 30 mph, the vehicle could travel up to 50 feet before the brakes take hold.  Higher speeds?  You do the math.  But what’s a little inconvenience when there may be a deal to be had?   Apparently, to some hoping to get a better price on the purchase, safety is negotiable.  Don’t look at me.  I drive a Volvo. 


Next time you’re in Dubai

Be sure and grab yourself a tasty quarter-pound camel burger.  Touted as the newest “health” option on menus there, the camel burger is fat and cholesterol free.  For a mere $5.45 you can have yours loaded with cheese and burger sauce with a side of  fries.  

Well, why not…  Does anybody really know what goes into a Big Mac?


This week’s “You Can’t Make This Shit Up” Award goes to this little gem...

Not to be outdone by Sarah Palin’s $110,000 speaking engagement at the Tea Party Convention, former president George W. Bush received the coveted honor of Key Note Speaker at this year’s highly anticipated…wait for it…Grocer’s Association Conference!   Sharing the bill with Bush will be musical guest, Paul Anka. 

UPDATE:   Courtesy of the Huffington Post...  Say what you will about George W., I don't recall him ever using the palm of his hand as a cheat sheet.   Sarah Palin, during a speech in which she mocked President Obama for his use of a teleprompter, reveals several notes written on her left hand. The words "Energy", "Tax" and "Lift American Spirits" are clearly visible. There's also what appears to read as "Budget cuts" with the word Budget crossed out. 

And again later, while being interviewed...


And continuing with the gift that just keeps on giving…

The always consistent beauty queen ripped Rahm Emanuel this week for his use of the word “retard” in a closed-door meeting at the White House.  Emanuel was referring to liberal activists who want to run ads against conservative Democrats.   Or maybe it was his use of the word fucking when describing said retards.  Hard to always know with Sarah.   Anyway, demanding President Obama fire Emanuel, she called his use of the word “a slur on all God's children with cognitive and developmental disabilities” and likened it to using the “N-word,” something she deemed “unacceptable” and “heartbreaking.” Emanuel later issued an apology.   

Flash forward… Rush Limbaugh took offense to people, presumably including Palin, protesting Emanuel's remark, lamenting on his radio show that “our politically correct society is acting like some giant insult's taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards.”  When asked for a response from Palin, her spokesperson said, “Governor Palin believes crude and demeaning name-calling at the expense of others is disrespectful,” adding that was meant generally and Palin was certainly not specifically referring to Limbaugh.   Apparently, Emanuel’s private statement crossed some terrible line in Palin’s pea brain, while Limbaugh’s public one… Not so much.

UPDATE:    Palin now says she doesn't fault Limbaugh because "he was just using satire."   You betcha...


Finally, in honor of today's Super Bowl, an ad you won't be seeing...
