So, Glee came to an end a couple days ago, after 6 years, and being confronted with that fact, as well as seeing some emotional posts and comments has made me surprisingly sentimental and nostalgic on the subject.  And although I’ve said some of these things on Tumblr and ontd_glee, getting my thoughts out on the matter inspired me to make my first entry here on my journal in some two and a half years.

Joke About Rush Limbaugh

Well, the most recent controversy about Rush Limbaugh once again saying something incredibly offensive reminded me of an old joke about him I had saved on my computer that seemed appropriate to bring back to life, so without further ado:

What's the difference between Rush Limbaugh and the Hindenburg?

One's a flaming Nazi gasbag and the other was a dirigible. 

Interesting Little Thing I Saw On Tumblr

So, RL's been keeping me kind of busy & this is the first time in over a month that I've been able to post, & lo & behold, I find this little gem on Tumblr that says it perfectly:

Dutch Use F-16s to Pursue Criminal Suspect

From the AP- via Yahoo

AMSTERDAM (AP) — Talk about overkill.

The Dutch air force says two of its F-16 jet fighters tried to help police chase a criminal suspect.

Spokesman Olav Spanjer says the jets were about to leave Volkel airbase on a training mission Thursday evening when they heard local police had requested a military jeep to chase a suspect over soggy terrain.

The pilots volunteered to help search using their infrared cameras.

Spanjer conceded Friday, "It was kind of a long-shot."

The suspect was in a car with stolen license plates that sped away when police tried to pull it over. After an exchange of gunfire, the car crashed into a canal and the man ran away across a field.

In the end, a tip from a suspicious neighbor, and not a high-tech jet, led police to the suspect.



Either that’s one of the most wanted & dangerous criminals ever, or someone wanted to one-up Sheriff Arpaio’s M109 SP howitzer as the most OTT law enforcement vehicle ever, LOL…. :)
