Our LOLCat

It seems that Kitty is trying to mail herself to France to see her owner, Lauren. I found her howling from inside this box Sunday night (yes, Kitty got herself in there).

I wanted to help, but all I could think was ... "Step 1: Cut a whole in the box. Step 2: Put your cat in the box... It's my cat in a box!"

NEW! VOTE FOR KITTY on ICANHAZCHEEZBURGER... her self-esteem has been low so please give her 5 cheezburgers...

Caren Explains the Best Songs of 2007 that Buzzed the Blogs

It's time for the next installment of the Best Songs of 2007 according to me. This one pays homage to the bands that bloggers loved and sometimes loved to hate in 2007.

Since this playlist is about bloggers, it made more sense to link up the songs via blogs instead of iTunes... plus, some of these bands are so obscure to the mainstream that they don't even sell their tunes on iTunes.

So enjoy...

Huckabee/Norris in 2008?

Iowa might love Mike Huckabee, but Mike Huckabee loves Chuck Norris!

Yes, Huckabee's biggest fan was on-hand in Iowa, following Huckabee's GOP caucus win, which now raises a good question... would Chuck Norris make a good running mate?

Um, DUH... just look at the facts!

10 reasons that Chuck Norris would make an excellent running mate:

1. There is no "ctrl" button on Chuck Norris' computer. Chuck Norris is always in control.
2. Chuck Norris agrees with Huckabee that there is no theory of evolution. Just the animals Chuck allows to live.
3. The chief export of Chuck Norris is pain.
4. Chuck Norris once shot down a terrorist with his finger by yelling, "BANG!"
5. Contrary to popular belief, America is not a democracy; it is a Chucktatorship.
6. When an episode of "Walker: Texas Ranger" was aired in France, the French surrendered to Chuck Norris, just to be on the safe side.
7. Chuck Norris always knows the EXACT location of Carmen Sandiego
8. Unlike other vice presidents, Chuck Norris knows that there is no such thing as global warming. Chuck was cold, so he turned up the sun.
9. Chuck Norris did, in fact, build Rome in a day.
10. If you have 50% of the vote, and Chuck Norris has 50% of the vote, Chuck Norris still wins.
