Bringing this over because, yes America, Mitt Romney is not human. No real human being interacts with others like this.
Mitt Romney in Pacquiao locker room. "Hello Manny. I ran for president. I lost." Seriously.— Greg Bishop (@nytbishop) December 09, 2012
jeebus. methinks he is not handling the loss very well.
Turns out Ann should have been worried about his mental condition either way.
SNL Spoiler: Seth Meyers: "On Thursday President Obama lit the national Christmas tree or as Fox News reported it: "Obama insults Israel."— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) December 09, 2012
that is so perfect.
Sooooo obtuse is fox noise!
Could it be top 10 again?
No wonder. Look at the time. I should have been in my rack 30 minutes ago. :-D
Beautiful, beautiful video!! Thanks Chips. :)
Four more years of such delight – yippee!!
A multi-national company held a reception to celebrate Christmas. The waiter gave each guest a glass of champagne, but on inspection, each guest noticed that their glass contained a fly.
The Swede asked for new champagne in the same glass.
The Englishman demanded to have new champagne in a new glass.
The Finn picked out the fly out and drank the champagne.
The Russian drank the champagne, fly and all.
The Chinese ate the fly but left the champagne.
The Israeli caught the fly and sold it to the Chinese.
The Italian drank two thirds of the champagne and then demanded to have a new glass.
The Norwegian took the fly and went off to fish.
The Irishman ground the fly and mixed it in the champagne, which he then donated to the Englishman
The American sued the restaurant and claimed $50 million in compensation.
The Scotsman grabbed the fly by the throat and shouted, ‘Now spit out all that you swallowed.’
Ewwwwwww………I’d rather be the American who at least got something for the grossness.
Managing to combine an amazing number of ethnic stereotypes. Nicely played! ;)
The Scotsman grabbed the wee fly by the wing, brought it up to his face and very angily shouted, SPIT IT OOOOOOOOT YA WEE BASTARD! SPIT IT OOOOOOOOOT!
And I’ve only heard that joke with an Irishman, an Englishman, and a Scot… walk into a pub and each orders a pint…..
Because as everyone on Earth with a functioning brainstem knows, it’s ALL ABOUT SCOTLAND. :D
Rebecca and Benjamin, a young couple, were touring the Holy Land over the Christmas holiday period and decided it would be very meaningful to them to spend Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, the birth place of Jesus.
When they arrived they searched high and low all day for a room for that night. Finally Rebecca and Benjamin drove to the plush and rather expensive ‘Intercontinental Hotel’ in Bethlehem.
‘I’ll pop in and see what I can do,’ said Benjamin feigning confidence for his, now exhausted, young wife.
Benjamin approached the desk and the receptionist told him there were no rooms in the hotel and probably no rooms in the whole of Bethlehem. ‘Sorry, sir. It’s Christmas Eve, it’s probably our busiest time.’
No matter how much Benjamin offered to pay, the receptionist still replied that said he had no available rooms.
Finally, Benjamin said, ‘I bet if I told you my name was Joseph, that the woman waiting in the car was called Mary, and that she had a newborn infant, you’d find us a room for the night.’
‘Er….well,’ stammered the receptionist, ‘I…..I suppose, in that case, I would.’
‘OK, then,’ said Benjamin determinedly. ‘I guarantee you, they’re not coming tonight, so we’ll take their room.’
:0 :) :) :) :)
Oh that was cute and funny :)
Chips…..thank you thank you thank you for this. You keep out doing yourself every time. :D
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has annulled a decree he issued last month that hugely expanded his powers and sparked angry protests, officials say.
However, a news conference in Cairo was told that a controversial referendum on a draft constitution would still go ahead as planned on 15 December.
Mr Morsi’s critics have accused him of acting like a dictator, but he says he is safeguarding the revolution.
He said the extra powers were needed to force through reforms.
Mr Morsi’s decree of 22 November stripped the judiciary of any right to challenge his decisions and triggered violent protests on the streets of Cairo.
“The constitutional decree is annulled from this moment,” said Selim al-Awa, an Islamist politician acting as a spokesman for a meeting Mr Morsi held with political and public figures on Saturday.
But he said the referendum on a new constitution would go ahead because it was not legally possible for the president to postpone it.
I read through that entire thing waiting for the punchline. I must say it’s not up to your usual joke standard.
Ok, how about this ?
Jesus came across an adulteress crouching in a corner with a crowd around her preparing to stone her to death. Jesus stopped them and said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
Suddenly a woman at the back of the crowd fired off a stone at the adulteress. At which point Jesus looked over and said, “Mother! Sometimes you really tick me off!”
That joke makes me giggle every time.
I laughed, even though I shouldn’t have laughed… :)
I will have to share that with my minister!
Maryl1, I am sure you didn’t intend to bait AMK! He is utterly shameless! He has absolutely no reverence for “Holly Mary mother of God.”
Brilliant Mary – the winning joke of the new day
Three friends had a good friend named Joe and he was, naturally, an eternal optimist. At every bad situation he would always say: ”It could have been worse.” His friends hated that quality about him, so they came up with a story so horrible that not even Joe could come up with a bright side. So the next day, only two of his friends showed up for a golf date.
Joe asked: ”Where’s Gary?”
And one of his friends said: ”Didn’t you hear? Yesterday, Gary found his wife in bed with another man, shot them both, and then turned the gun on himself.”
Joe says: ”Well it could have been worse.”
Both his friends said: ”How in hell could it be worse? Your best friend just killed himself!”
Joe says: ”If it had happened two days ago, I would be dead now!”
I so look forward to your jokes. :D
Ms. Chips you are beautiful.
AMK, you are incredible! You bring so much fun and laughter to this place.
Thanks Ms. Chips for yet another beautiful video. For some of us on the West Coast (US) it was nice to see another post from you before our bed time.
Yes a little romance is always a good thing. You have my favorite two things in it. The plaid sundress pics. The sport event kisscam moment and the FLOTUS smile in the red plaid. I love, love those moments. They always make me smile. Ya know, it’s a little weird shipping real peeps but I think I’ve actually become a PBO/FLOTUS shipper.
rolling stone’s analysis of pbo’s campaign heroes~
Thank you for sharing Susanne. I enjoyed reading that article and meeting the heroes again. It’s a good recap that Democratic time, technology and money were all well-spent. I am happy we had people who were intelligent, hard-working and focused on our side.
Good article, Susanne. The president knows how to put together the right team to get a job done.
Still wondering …
@davidaxelrod wonder if any Sunday yak yak shows will focus on the arrest of Mohammad Jamal Abdo Ahmed instead of Medicare PL phony poutrage— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) December 09, 2012
Thank you Chips for expressing for all of us our love for these two exceptional people ….
Dear @MichelleObama please know that we realize how much you & our President have sacrificed for us bit.ly/WSz54P & we love you.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) December 09, 2012
The perfect message for a perfect couple.
This video makes me cry every time!
Dear Chips, what an absolutely stunning video to wake up to. Had me smiling from the first second. Thanks so much…and good morning TODers! Have a wonderful day, all.
aloha susan~ must be time for me to go to bed!
Aloha Susanne! sweet dreams.
Damn Chips your are beautiful. What a wonderful video. Thanks, I needed that (wiping the salty discharge from eyes). <3
GM to all my TOD Family & friends. Chips that was a wonderful video. It brought a smile and warmth to the heart today. Has anyone heard from Fred? How is she doing? Dis her suregery go OK? I have been reading lately but can’t seem to catchup. I have been in and out of the Hospital for heart problems this past month and a few zaps to the heart. After awhile you get a little confused, so Idon’t post furing that time. But my thought and prayers are with everyone here. :) -:)
Good morning, Roberta. Sorry to hear that you have been having health problems; take care of yourself. It was reported days ago that Fred had come through her surgery. Chips has more info. Have a restful and beautiful Sunday.
Chips, I love this update of one of my favorite videos. PBO just lights up and fills up when he is with Michelle. To see such mutual love shown without subterfuge or shame, somehow brings comfort and confidence even to those of us who are not a part of their intimate world of family and friends.
What a gift to wake up to. Thank you, Chips and bless you!!! I do not understand how anyone, in seeing these two and their deep and abiding love and respect for each other……and their girls, cannot understand that reflects the kind of man he is and the kind of woman she is. That canNOT be faked. Obviously, people don’t want to see it. :(
So Ms Chips did find her way home just at day’s end/beginning! Good! Stuck my nose in before Sunday morning breakfast just to make sure. Hello, Chipsy-daisy! Morning TODobots! Congrats Maryl! Life’s good!
Who in the world would attend loser Joe Walsh’s final town hall mtg? A 100 people(tea partiers) jammed in to hear him rave one last time, telling the attendees that their freedom was lost, that government was taking over everything, would take everything they have. Posting a link but no one needs to read one more word about lunatic Joe Walsh—–can’t wait for him to go poof.
Thank you for the video Chips! You are a real talent. Off to get ready for work. Frisbee with the dogs for a while…then shower and out the door.
Love to all, and chag sameach for those of us who celebrate the Festival of Lights
Ms Chips, you are beautiful ! I just love this video :-)
Love me some romance!
Wonderful beautiful video. Thank you so much for this and this wonderful place
Recommendation: Kathryn Bigelow (Director of the Oscar winning movie The Hurt Locker) and Mark Boal discuss their new movie ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ about the hunt to get Osama Bin Laden. Very fascinating interview with Charlie Rose.
wow, thank you ut. And always thanks to those who bring good and relevant watches to our space here.
Awesome citizen education, ongoingly. Forward
Oh Chips you’ve outdone yourself ~ this is so so lovely. Aside from their obvious love & respect for one another, the beauty I see in our President & First Lady is their ‘normal-ness’ they are just so human, the way we humans all ought to be- they include us all in their love.. and that makes them Exceptional. Your video was tear-inducing, I must admit.
Thank you Chips for being so special to all of us. We have so much to be so grateful for on this beautiful journey, and with our lovely and brilliant President and First Lady, we will make this journey a worthwhile one indeed.
The video is just so beautiful. You lift our spirits to a level that bring so much hope and joyfulness within this space and within our spaces that we create in our homes as well.
A special hello and many prayful thoughts going out to our Fred(((((((((((((((( Healing hugs)))))))))))))))
Roberta, please take good care and get your rest. Jackie, I pray that your sister is doing well. Lots of love and hugs to all who may have family and friends who need us to lift them up in our prayers, meditation times and quiet times. We are a beautiful family who gives off the goodness of our light as our POTUS does each day of his life. ((((((((((((((((((( Blessings to our POTUS))))))))))))))))))))))HZ
This never, ever gets old. I saw this vid on a previous post and had either the vid or just the song playing in my studio all week. Such awesome inspiration, thank you Chips! This site has become stop #1 for me everytime I log onto the net now. =) Happy Sunday everyone.
The being of the video reminds me of the scenes in “When Harry met Sally” where the older couples talk about the first time they met and fell in love. The folks should add this in any new editions of the video. Very nice work Chips.
