Life's Simple Pleasures

By Mink

This evening I left the Baltimore Jewish Community Center pretty despondent after blowing an 18 point second half lead to a bunch of Russian thugs. Things got so bad in the game that I almost came to blows with an idiot who mimicked my plea for a foul call.

But it doesn't take too much to get me excited and a couple things that followed the game really cheered me up:

1. I got one of those "pull-through spots" at barnes and nobles (You know, the ones where you pull in and lo and behold the spot in front is open as well.)The ability to drive away without having to back out is really all that anyone can ask for out of a parking spot. So if I get one of those in a given week I am very satisfied.

2. Zev emailed me the link to the new Borat website. Apparently after another Sasha Cohen (Ali G) as Borat performance at the European MTV awards, the foreign minister of Kazahkstan lashed out on Mr. Cohen's act and even suggested a political conspiracy:

"We do not rule out that Mr. Cohen is serving someone's political order designed to present Kazakhstan and its people in a derogatory way. We reserve the right to any legal action to prevent new pranks of the kind. We view Mr. Cohen's behaviour at the MTV Europe Music Awards as utterly unacceptable, being a concoction of bad taste and ill manners which is completely incompatible with ethics and civilized behaviour."-Yerzhan Ashykbayev, Kazakh Foreign Ministry Spokesman"


You guys have to hear Sasha Cohen's response which can be heard on this website http://www.borat.kz/ ........priceless


Have a great weekend all, I will be in the big apple at Zevies where we will have our blogger photoshoot and premier party.

Mink is falling behind. The humor level is down here. You need to bring the humor level up to here. You started out strong, but shot your load before you could finish the job. Luckily, you're a guy so you get as many chances as you need.

i actually think that for someone as unfunny as minkove, he is doing a prety good job. It has made its way into my daily blog rotation and that, although not such a high honor considering how long classes are, is still pretty good.

Dont get me wrong. I read this blog as often as Mink or Singerz IM me with new posts. I'm just trying to goad them into working on the comedy portion of the blog. It's like a roller coaster -- sometimes you go up, sometimes you go down (platonically) and sometimes you just gag at the smell of the vomit from the guy sitting next to you.
