Shabbos hilarity

I read this morning on Michelle Malkin's site that President Obama is under the impression that we've built an intercontinental railroad.  As a hippie, of course, this worries me, because imagine how many bombs could be delivered on an intercontinental ballistic railroad.  There is only one thing to say, all together now:

You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant (excepting Alice)

Don't forget that if you want to stop war and stuff, you've got to sing loud.  And if you want to stop Obama, you've got to remind him that we built several transcontinental, not an intercontinental, railroads, and that those railroads were sent into bankruptcy by the Great Northern, the only transcontinental railroad built without government money.

In other hilarious news, I saw a picture of a home spa featuring no fewer than twelve "low flow" shower heads.  I am guessing that not only will this give plumbers nightmares (how big of a pipe do I need now to feed this monstrosity?), but will also remind people of how nice it was to take a shower before the government required us to buy low flow shower heads.

Speaking of which, the difference between a low flow shower head and a standard shower head is, today as in 1993, a rubber gasket that obstructs the free flow of water.  So if you want an old time shower experience, but don't have thirty grand to spend on a custom spa, you can modify your shower head to work like those of old with an adjustable wrench and a swiss army knife.

Not that I would know anything about this, of course, and of course I wouldn't be encouraging people to bypass silly environmental laws or anything.  Perish the thought.  (anyone got a pair of vise grips I can borrow...?)

You had me curious about the Great Northern, so I looked it up.

Erstwhile curious commentors can also go here:

"...without government money."


Huh, interesting. You inspired us to check out the Great Northern Railway. Thanks for the link, Palm Boy.
