Thank you TIME Magazine.


You still suck.

I suspect and hope that if we weren't already sure TIME's Man (excuse me, Person) of the Year deserved to be dead and buried, this confirms it.

Congrats, of course. ;-)

Cute photo, Annie.

But, don't you think maybe Time wimped out?

They could have had that Persian midget, or maybe the American Marine, or even Nancy Pelegra.

Hey, who reads Time anymore? The old adage, "'Life' is for people who can't read; 'Time' is for people who can't think", has never been truer.

Well said, Shelly. Took the words out of my mouth. Who could ever take that rag seriously after it named Khomeini Man of the Year and then followed it up with the murderer, Arafat, some years later. Or, how 'bout when they named the Communist dictator of the USSR Man of the Year in '87?

Once again, here's my favorite reason to hate them.

Posted by: reagan80 on Dec. 17, 2006

Those bastards told me I would win. Dammit!

Congrats, I guess.

I thought that the old adage, from back when 'Life' was still viable, was"'Life' is like a mountain railroad..."

I thought you were trying to say that you've decided to buy a Chrysler Sebring. Let me know if this is the case. I can get you the employee discount. Although, even with the discount, it's still overpriced.

reagan, I LOVE that you quoted ATHF.

I'm putting on my resume that I was Time's Person of the Year for 2006. It's not exactly a lie, and I expect to be congratulated for my cleverness.

Although... if the internet is the Big Deal that makes us all so important... shouldn't Al Gore be this year's honoree? :0)

Make sure that you also add "crackhead".

LMFAO, Gawd I'm funny.

Posted by: Casca on Dec. 18, 2006

Isn't "Law Fairy" bad enough for you?

Hell, if you want to improve on that, just add "IRS Agent" or something equally loved by the American people like GTE employee.

On second thought, having Algore as an idol does it.

Posted by: shelly on Dec. 18, 2006

I'm glad to hear that, Law Fairy. Here's another.....

"Is this far enough, Master?"
"Until the road dead ends."
"The stick has met with resistance!"
"Your butt requires more wood!"

Too bad the DVD with this episode hasn't come out yet.

Posted by: reagan80 on Dec. 18, 2006

lol, casca. It's like you manage to find a bullshit excuse to insult me even when I'm being perfectly polite and uncontroversial.

Oh wait, it's not "like" that. It IS that.

Oh, by the way, happy twelfth birthday. That's coming up for you, right?

(shelly, did I do/say something to offend you? Or are you just getting sucked in by the gravitational pull of casca's childishness? I know it's strong, but you can beat it!)

reagan, they require such patience from us fans...

I always knew Annika would be on the cover of a magazine.

I just imagined it with no clothes and...

"I'm putting on my resume that I was Time's Person of the Year for 2006. It's not exactly a lie, and I expect to be congratulated for my cleverness."

Could you POSSIBLY be unaware of how fucking stupid that sounds? It's like walking through the big Lebowski's entry hall. Clearly Time is plagerizing the Cohen Bros, and you're... aw, who the fuck knows or cares.

Posted by: Casca on Dec. 18, 2006

ahahahahahah. Nice!

Posted by: dawn summers on Dec. 18, 2006

Wow, casca... I think I just figured out your problem. You have no sense of humor. Must be from getting dropped on the head as a baby, or something.

That was a joke, you ninny. Are you really that obtuse?

Posted by: The Law Fairy on Dec. 18, 2006

WTF is "Time" ? I vaguely remember something that was found in the dentist's office many years ago.
Surely it could have no relevance in todays world?

Posted by: kyle8 on Dec. 18, 2006

Another reason to never, ever buy Time Magazine: they once employed one of the world's biggest idiots and left-wing propogandists, Barbara Ehrenreich.

Posted by: blu on Dec. 18, 2006

Anni! Where's your MNF post?? I need somewhere to vent about the atrocity named Kornheiser's blabbermouth, vapid, stupid commentary! Not only do I have to suffer my Colt's degregation on defense (from bad to worse), but I have to listen to the Master of All TV Morons say dumbfuck things, like calling a 6 year Colts veteran (Rob Morris) a "new" addition to the lineup.


Please ESPN... please... get someone new for next year... please...

Posted by: ElMondoHummus on Dec. 18, 2006

sorry about the MNF, i just got home, my radiator's blown now. i can't wait until i can get my fucking lexus.

Posted by: annika on Dec. 18, 2006

Oh, jeez, Anni, for that, please don't apologize. I got my vent off; you just worry about your car. That's more important that blog posting.

If the radiator blew, then as long as the car got stopped in time, the head gasket might still be okay, so you may not be looking at a hideously large repair bill. That's a plus.

On the other hand, if you're getting a Lexus soon, the f*** the old car.

Good luck. Sorry that happened to you so close to Christmas.

Posted by: ElMondoHummus on Dec. 18, 2006

since it's not here yet, go check out this band's site, watch the videos, read the lyrics, download the songs and then buy multiple copies of the CD for stocking stuffers......that's what I did.


Posted by: TBinSTL on Dec. 19, 2006

Guys, the Lexus comes when she passes the Bar and some firm plops down the bucks to get her to work for them.

It is the car of choice for young associates at the top law firms; you can see them by the row in the big buildings late at night while their owners crank out briefs and memos for the partners.

Casca, why don't you just send her a Chrysler to use in the interim? Now, that's a stocking stuffer.

Posted by: shelly on Dec. 19, 2006

It's a thought. How much are you kicking in?

LF, you're nutz bitch, but in a good way.

Blu, once upon a time, long long ago, way before cable was even thought of, Henry Luce founded Time Magazine. When he wasn't taking huge bribes from Joe Kennedy to put his son on the cover, he was hiring talent like Whitaker Chambers who edited "The World" section of the mag during WWII. It's worth remembering that Time was the lone anti-commie voice when FDR was selling Uncle Joe Stalin. Alas, we all become anachronisms.

Posted by: Casca on Dec. 19, 2006

Amen to the anachronism morphing; more like we become our parents, or that which we didn't especially enjoy about them.

Alas, I fear I am headed that direction. What was it that Will Rogers said about being on the right road? "You can be on the right road, but if you don't move, you'll still get run over."

Keep looking over your shoulder, Casca...

Posted by: shelly on Dec. 19, 2006

Annie you blew your radiator?

I hope it bought you dinner!

Posted by: Radical Redneck on Dec. 19, 2006

Just fix the damned thing, and leave my personal life out of it, badumpbump!
