zut alors!

if you’re not a twenty-first century woman desperately on the lookout for some masterful men (even if they are just imaginary ones), then you may not have seen the first episode of the latest season of mad men. this was the highlight of the show (you’re welcome!):


and another (almost) french tune:



this one’s dedicated to the msm (and matt drudge, too) … which i’ve had to avoid for the last, oh, 36 hours ’cause everywhere you look there’s a picture of dead or dying gaddafi! now, it’s not that i’m sad that they got gaddafi … i just don’t want to look at pictures of dead or at-the-moment-of-execution anybody! really … what have we become? sheesh, already. (i’m sure glad i don’t have a tv machine.)


enema bandits

they’re out there. consider yourselves warned:

“The strange case of the mystery enema”

“On the afternoon of Sunday, May 1, a 53-year-old Sonoma man who is visually impaired – that is to say he could not see well, if at all – was standing in his apartment when a woman appeared in his doorway, unannounced and unexpected.

“The woman told him she was there to give him an enema. Because the man had recently undergone intestinal surgery, he thought perhaps that explained her presence.

“The woman deftly guided him to his bedroom, had him drop his pants and lie face down on his bed.

“She then gave the man an enema and promptly left.

“The whole episode took about a minute-and-a-half, he later told police. The woman did not leave a card or any other identifying information. And given the condition of his eyesight, the man did not, in the complete sense of the word, actually see her.

“A day later, on Monday, the enema recipient began wondering about what had happened to him but took no action. By Tuesday, he felt compelled to shed some light on the experience, so he contacted police. An investigating officer promptly called the man’s doctor and was told no enema had been prescribed, ordered or approved….”

and, of course, you all remember the illinois enema bandit:
