Sometimes you gotta laugh

A few bits on the internet today caught my eye and made me laugh.

Here's one from the Washington Post about the GOP's new website where it asks for ideas from the general public.

And the ideas came streaming in, such as:

"Let kids vote!" recommended one. "Let's make a 'Social Security Lotto,' " proposed another. "What dope came up with the idea of criminalizing a parent's right to administer corporal punishment?" a third demanded.

Another contributor had parody in mind (we hope): "English is are official langauge. Anybody who ain't speak it the RIGHT way should kicked out."

The New York Times' take on the Cannes Film Festival awards is worth a read. The top prize, or Palme d'Or, went to “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives."

It was the first Thai film to ever win the award. It was directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, who gratefully goes by the name Joe. " 'I would really like to kiss all of you,' " he said to the jury, telling (Tim) Burton that he liked his hairstyle."

Then there are stories with headlines that make you laugh out loud: "Report: Users Wasted 4.8 million hours playing Google's Pacman Doodle."
