"Fight the stick, not the vacuum cleaner!"
Just now, my cockatoo was fighting various objects, and I had to redirect his aggression to his stick (an old Swiffer handle) so he wouldn't chew holes in the vacuum cleaner's hose.

I found myself uttering the sentence, "Fight the stick, not the vacuum cleaner!" and realized how surreal that sounded.

What are some things you never thought you'd have to say?

2. I never thought I'd have to say...................
George Bush is going to be a two term pResident.

Hell, I never thought I'd have to say George Bush was going to be pResident at all.

Strange days we're living in, strange days.

3. I'm so ashamed
"I'm from the Department of the Interior, and I'm here to investigate complaints against your coal mine."

It was my first law job. Contrary to what everyone says, I can state with great personal authority that it is, indeed, possible to be fired by the Federal government.
