What Makes You Think You’re Funny?

Snark cruise missile


That’s a form of Snark I’m familiar with – a ground launched cruise missile with a nuclear warhead. It’s launched by the two solid rocket motors and then the jet engine takes over when it’s airborne.

Of course there’s the original snark from the pen of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson [AKA Lewis Carroll], in his work “The Hunting of the Snark (An Agony in 8 Fits)”.

But let’s discuss the form that requires a “snark mark”, perhaps an interrobang [ ‽ ], winking emoticon 😉 , or my own twisted version 😈 .

The Tornadoes

If you have an interest in the weather, Dr. Jeff Masters has a good post on the Super Tuesday Outbreak which had at least four EF-4 [166-200 mph] tornadoes and the possibility that one of the nine EF-3 tornadoes may have scoured a 120-mile track across Tennessee.

There are also links to sites with even more information, but according to Tom DeLay we don’t know if there is global climate change.

Ignorance Is Not An Excuse

Sinfonian of Blast Off! covers the latest attempt to paper over the mess created by the Democratic National Committee rules in the real world.

I’ve covered some of this before, but let me expand a little.

“A number of people have been lumping Florida and Michigan together because both states moved their primaries and the Democratic National Committee took away all of the delegates from both states. The situations are not the same.”

That is what is known as a fact. The two cases are similar only in that the primary dates occurred before February 5th.
