oh dear

I saw this photo posted AGAIN on a right-wing nut-job fruit-bat dip-stick website today (I got lost on the interwebs):

They’re original, aren’t they? Although not as original as the non-photoshopped version of the pic:

Museum of Hoaxes: In early 2008 the top photo began circulating online, showing Obama with a cigarette in his mouth. It is not real. The original photo (bottom) was taken by Kwame Ross on Aug. 3, 2004 while then-State Sen. Obama met with constituents at the University of Illinois while campaigning to become a U.S. Senator. An unknown hoaxer digitally added the cigarette into the photo.

president nation korea horse!

Korea Times: The Korean name of U.S. President Barack Obama has become the talk of the town …. Suh Jin-hup, head of the ROK-US Alliance Friendship Association, has named the U.S. president “Oh Han-ma” in Korean. O meaning nation, Han means Korea and Ma is a horse.

“ ‘O(吳)’ from the first letter of Obama has been chosen as his family name, Han (韓) from ‘H’ pronunciation of Obama’s middle name Hussein as his middle name and Ma (馬) which is a symbol of the United States has been chosen as his last name,” Suh said.

“The full name means our hope that the Korean and U.S. leaders will exert their efforts to strengthen Korea-U.S. solid alliance made during the Korean War …. and to reactivate the sagging world economy by actively galloping like horses at the bilateral summit on the sideline of G20 summit,” Suh said.

The friendship body is seeking to give the Korean name plate along with the naming reasons to President Obama via the United States Forces Korea.

Oooops, these two headlines appear side by side on The Page (Time magazine) today:

Halperin probably hasn’t spotted the problem yet, he’s too busy writing yet another ‘PALIN 2012 – WHOOOOO HOOOO!’ story

facebook

Hey people, after 13 months I’ve finally found the setting that allows videos, etc from this blog to be shared on Facebook

Well, I think I’ve found it.

If you click on the title of the post you want to share you should now see the Facebook logo at the bottom.

I don’t use Facebook….

….so I have no clue how all of this works, but fingers crossed this will do the trick.

This video seems to be the one most people want to share:

Let me know if you have any problems and I’ll check it out.

Thanks!
