Kinky, Kinky, Kinky

Ask and you shall receive. Here are today's links:

Big news in Austin yesterday: Kinky Friedman, independent candidate for governor, is in some hot water for comments made in an interview last year. When asked what to do with child molestors, "Throw them in prison and throw away the key and make them listen to a Negro talking to himself," Friedman said. He also called "Negro" a "charming word." The funny thing is that Kinky isn't backing down. He said that negro is fine, in part because the United Negro College Fund still uses it. Friedman said if you don't like him, vote for somebody else. Nearly everyone says that Kinky isn't a racist, and that he just likes to stir things up. Check out the names of his bandmates from Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys on the Wikipedia link above.

This is no way to treat your girlfriend's pussy.

I thought I was cheap.

One in five Americans wants plastic surgery. We have a ways to go before we catch Columbia, where shows such as "Without Breasts There's No Paradise" are popular.



Quick Thoughts

Two weeks into fantasy football, and we've got some interesting developments. Anybody that drafted Steve Smith, T.O., or Portis in the first round can't be very happy. On the other hand, people that were pissed they got stuck with Vick or Grossman as their starting QB are pretty happy.

Chicago is good, but it sure helps to play in the NFC north.

Chris Simms' season was doomed the second I took him as my backup QB.

Are some people really stupid enough to want Chaz Batch starting for Roethlisburger? I watched Batch for years in Detroit and he couldn't do a damn thing. Don't let one good game fool you. Remember, Falcons fans, Schaub has looked good and nobody thinks he's better than Vick (yes, I suppose I just compared Big Ben to Vick).

Favre had a good game. Must have just ripped his heart out to lose after leading 13-0. Pass the pain pills.

Reggie Bush definitely belongs in the NFL, but I'd be terrified to have him returning kicks. Seems like it would be way too easy to get hurt.

Don't call it a comeback: Kurt Warner's season is looking better than nearly anyone would have thought.

Edge, on the other hand, misses Indy's line.

Falcons signed Morton Anderson. There must not be any good kickers out there. If a 46 year old is one of the 32 best in the world at something athletic, there's something wrong. The PTI guys were right: if he's so good, why wasn't he on a team the past two years?

Doug Flutie looks creepy on TV. No way around it.


Have a nice day.
