Wasn't sure where to put this shot--on the Entertainment board or the Wild West board. I'll try it here. It dazzled me, even though it's obviously doctored.

I found it funny, too, Lee. A bit of levity in a board of threads that are so serious (as they should be). But we can still laugh once in a while at some of the stuff that's going on. Someone did a good job on matching faces with forms.

Haha, nice!

There is another Sarah Palin-doctored photo on TMZ... apparently a show in Vegas is looking for Palin look-alikes for a lingerie show, or something. *rolls eyes* But at first glance, I didn't realize it was Palin's head superimposed on a shirt-less woman's body. I was like, "Whoa, where did this come from?" Then I realized it wasn't actually Palin's body Laughing

Funny! Hilarious actually. I've got to admit, fake though it may be, they look good together. At least we know she'll have a hobby after suffering the loss of the VP job in 2 weeks. whew! what a relief. Wink Wink

Glad you enjoyed it Jane G and xina. This campaign is getting heavy, heavy. Two weeks can't come quick enough for me.

Is this dress part of her $150,000 wardrobe??? (sorry, couldn't help myself...hee!)
Anyhoo....I'm getting sick of the ads and I can't wait until they are over and done with. We not only have the presidential ads but one of the nastiest Senator campaign ads in the country (Coleman vs. Frankan)and then we have the brilliance of Michele Bachman to be proud of too. I've actually taken to talking back to the TV. Not a good thing on any level..... Rolling Eyes

I think most of us agree with you on this, xina. It's hit the saturation point and I wonder if anyone out there is actually listening anymore to all the campaign rhetoric. I mean that sincerely. I've tuned it out. Within the last year, we abandoned our landline phone and are now relying strictly on our cell phones. One benefit (among many) is that we no longer receive any phoned political messages. I love it. Hang in there--it's almost over (unless we have more "chad" incidents as we had in 2000).

Thank goodness the election is over for me! We don't have a polling place so we always have to vote by absentee ballot, and we spent this morning reading up on all the issues and marking our ballots. So from now on I will just ignore all ads, robo-calls, etc.

I actually prefer to vote like this. My husband and I have spent many Saturday mornings over the last several years this way. We have an unspoken rule that we don't discuss politics any time except that morning when we vote, and it makes for better blood pressure readings for both of us!

We dropped our landline a year ago too Tee. At first I was reluctant...my husband wanted to do it the year before, but I love it now. And it's a plus now since we haven't gotten any of those political calls. The only problem I have found without a landline is the frustration I feel when I've misplaced my cell or left it in my car! Love it outside of those things.

That's great, Julie, if you can stick with it. I'm not sure my husband and I could. We agree for the most part on the main stuff, but there are proposals and other things where we sometimes have differing opinions. It's hard to keep quiet. :lol:

I really try hard, xina, to either keep it on me in a pocket or on the coffee table in the living room. That way I always should know where it's at. But there have been times when I've been in a hurry and placed it where I can't find it. That's when we call the missing phone with another cell phone and follow the ring. My husband and I also alternate nights keeping our phones on. Mine stays on all thru the night on even days and his is kept open on the odd days.

I didn't want to begin a new thread just for this, so I thought I'd pop it into one that's already existing and geared more to the light side rather than deep discussions. I found it humorous with different opinions by well recognized people on "why the chicken crossed the road." No offense is meant anywhere here by me. I think it "toasts" everyone a little, no matter their leanings.

WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?

BARACK OBAMA: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a
change! The chicken wanted change!

JOHN McCAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he
recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the
chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little
chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to
ensure - right from Day One! - that every chicken in this country gets the
chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road.
We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The
chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?

COLIN POWELL: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the
satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken. What is your
definition of chicken?

JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now
against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the
chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white? We need some black chickens.

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he
must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after
the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him
realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his current problems before
adding new problems.

OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is
why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken
learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give
this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his
life like the rest of the chickens.

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

DR. SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes,
the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.

JERRY FALWELL: Because the chicken was gay! Can't you people see the
plain truth? That's why they call it the 'other side.' Yes, my friends, that
chicken is gay. And if you eat that chicken, you will become gay, too. I say
we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal
media whitewashes with seemingly harmless phrases like 'the other side.' That
chicken should not be crossing the road. It's as plain and as simple as that.

GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road.
Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.

BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be
listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart-warming story of how
it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong
dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

JOHN LENNON: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together,
in peace.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road
move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS: How did I miss that one?

LOL! Funny Tee. Thanks for posting that. I loved it. Very Happy Oh....I was expecting a Sarah Palin take on the chicken!

Maybe it was done before Palin and Biden entered the scene. I didn't even think about the fact that they were missing.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. All of this is coming to an end very soon, but keeping it on the light side occasionally works for me.
