Executive Order for Free Speech on Campus

Looking forward to a thousand campus protests in the form of students holding up a giant poster of the signer of this order and saluting and Sieg Heiling it.

I’m sure the signer will enjoy the attention.

Let the lawsuits begin.

"Blur to Focus" This isn't Outer Limits

"Blur to Focus" This isn't Outer Limits

Fades and dissolves and other PowerPoint tricks are really annoying. It used to be impressive because it was a lot of work to animate this, frame by frame, by hand. Now it’s just tedious. It’s the tag of modern websites.

How trademark works - HAKUNA MATATA

How trademark works - HAKUNA MATATA

This trademark by Disney applies to:

International Class

025 - Clothing, footwear, headgear. - Clothing, footwear, headgear.

So everyone can still say this phrase, use it in creative works such as plays, books, articles, movies; just not on T-shirts, sweatshirts, headbands, hats, or sneakers.

Sylvester McMonkey McBean

Sylvester McMonkey McBean

So I came across a post saying disparaging things about McBean and hadn’t heard the name before (not a children’s book reader.) So I looked it up and found this:

No Deaths From Elephant Stampedes In US 2017 - Thanks President Trump

No Deaths From Elephant Stampedes In US 2017 - Thanks President Trump

Worried people sighed with relief when the first year since anyone can remember was completed without one death in the US of A due to an elephant stampede. President Trump’s efforts in this are worthy of a ticker tape parade and a big gold star to stick on his daddy’s refrigerator. This announcement comes closely on the heels of his taking credit for being un-involved in the lack of major...

There’s no way to put into a few words the contributions Harlan made. He will be sorely missed.

Did More Americans Watch the Royal Wedding than Trump's Inauguration?

While the rule on questions in headlines indicates the answer is ‘no,’ I bet in this case the answer must be “Yes!”

Maybe Don and Sean can discuss it over pillow talk tonight.

It’s a core Islamic-derived civil war against the Christians of Nigeria, Niger, Chad, and Cameroon. They are trying to retake the territory that was Christianized by the British in the early 1900s, with the first conflict breaking out in Nigeria soon after the British left.

Looks like Sinclair is gunning for the Internet

Local Sinclair mouthpiece guy asks where the latest bomber got the information to make his bomb - “Wasn’t it from the INTERNET?”
