Friday Bits of Tid, Dog Days Edition

I guess the early part of the news week was slow because yesterday's news was one piece of bad news followed immediately by another. Obama may be trying to Cloward-Piven us to death, some softball player got in the Supreme Court, Eric Holder announced that activist groups will start getting government settlement money, even more Americans are out of work and on food stamps.

Oh well. At least it's Friday. All is not lost.

The sun is still shining. Outside, it's really a beautiful day, at least it is here. Sure is hot, but it's supposed to be that way in the middle of summer. All the better to make sun tea with.

It's all in your outlook. That's the part of life that you get to control.

Other parts of life, not so much.

You could always drown your sorrows at the nearest vending machine.

And if you want those sorrows good and dead, drown them in the world's strongest beer (so far this week).

After all, drinking beer is good for you.

Along with some bacon-flavored caviar.

This is why grey swimsuits don't sell in Florida.

Poor thing. A Russian woman wants to be an artist, but can't seem to find any paint brushes.

Seven million mosquitoes dead. And the silence from PETA is deafening.

Heh. "Big Sky Marketing Director Dax Schieffer says the resort tried to find an environmentally friendly paintball. But it turned out that the one selected contains a vegetable oil that can attract grizzly and black bears that commonly roam the region." Gaia can be a bitch sometimes.

And finally, here's Tennessee's answer to Alvin Green. Um, what was the question?

Y'all have a good weekend, y'all.
