There was “Giant” news in sports this week, as San Francisco pitcher Matt Cain hurled only the 22nd perfect game ever thanks to some amazing catches. While Cain was making baseball history, new doping allegations against cycling’s Lance Armstrong once again threaten to alter the history of that sport. In basketball, the OKC Thunder and the Miami Heat began their NBA finals series, and I identified the selfish pronouns that will send LeBron and the Heat home empty-handed for the second straight year.
Most people were surprised by the revelation that HBO's Game of Thrones used the image of President Bush’s severed head on a spike. Meanwhile, only Kenneth from 30 Rock was shocked by the shoddy treatment he received at the legendarily hostile Wiener’s Circle hot dog stand in Chicago. We laughed until our tummies ached when Triumph the Insult Comic Dog came to his rescue. Just watch the insult-a-thon and enjoy (unless a lot of f*cking bleeping offends you).
We ended Mel Brooks “Zen” week with a slightly less than philosophical Mel-as-Moses moment from History of the World Part 1. Thanks to everyone who voted in the “featured zen contributor” contest. If I could, I would reward each of you with one of these frozen treats.
This week we reached a milestone 40,000 page views on The Way Things Turn. As always, thanks for reading!
