Welcome to The Crapper. The Crapper is a new feature on The Catch Up Lady where I will dump (get it?) funny/interesting things that I've come across in the last few days which are notable, but don't work as stand alone posts. If you have an item you'd like to see put in The Crapper, let me know.
- My friend Liz just sent me a link to Pocket Shots, which are shots of liquor that come in a little plastic 50 ml pouch. My first reaction was, "Why didn't I think of that?!" Then I remembered that I'm too cheap to buy a product like this, and that the easier solution is to stash a Poland Spring bottle filled with vodka in your purse, ask the bartender for juice and spike your own drink in the bathroom. Not that I, or anyone I know have ever done that.
- Friend #2 sent me a link to this article the other day, which details State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha lawsuit against God. According to Wired, the suit, "contends that God, along with his followers of all persuasions, 'has made and continues to make terroristic threats of grave harm to innumerable persons.' Those threats are credible given God's history..." It goes on from there. I was going to make a joke about how I would like to sue God to get rid of all Republicans (except the ones I like), but then I realized this guy was a Democrat. Fucking liberals.
- Went to a cool event tonight for the launch of Spoonful of Sin, which is a dessert of the month club. You sign up and they send you a gourmet dessert once a month. If the desserts taste anything like the 75 samples I stuffed in my pie hole tonight, I highly recommend it. Roland Mesnier, former White House Pasty Chef of 20+ years and spokesmen for the company, was also in attendance. He informed me that Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan had the biggest sweet tooths of all the President's he worked for, and also made several hilarious jokes during his remarks to the group. I would post the picture I took of him in his chef outfit, but the lighting in the gallery combined with my crappy camera phone left me with a picture that looks more like a Klansman than a pastry chef to the dignitaries - so I'll demur.
