This is blatent laziness, but you've got to go over and read these jokes.

I assume that everyone in the free world reads Alexa's blog. Not just because she's got nearly 200 subscribers, but because she is one of the funniest, wittiest people on the planet. Anyway, in her post yesterday, she asked everyone to put something funny (joke, pun, comic, etc.) in their comment.

Much like Alexa, her readers are intelligent and damn funny. Go over and read through the comments when you need a laugh. You won't regret it. Then come back here and tell me what was your favorite.

Just when you think she is a genuis

This post should have the subtitle, "When you know that CNN/AC360/Meet the Press/etc is on the TV too much in your house..."

Megan is apparently into politics. She asks a million questions and many of them are frighteningly deep. Not just for a 4 year old, for a 40 year old. Since Mel posted about her children's political interests and shenanigans, I'll share with you a conversation we recently had in the car...

Megan: "Mom, who are you going to vote for?"

Me: "I don't know yet."

Megan: "I'm voting."

Me: "Really? Who are you voting for?"

Megan: "Well, at first I wanted to vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden. But now I think I'll vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin."

Me: "Hmmm. Why?"

Megan: "I like Sarah Palin."

Me: "Oh? Why?"

Megan: "Because she is for America, and I am for America. I really like America."

Me: "I like America too. What else do you know about her?"

Megan: "She's pretty and she looks like Miss Kelly [my best friend]."

Me: "Well, that's true but those aren't good reasons to vote for someone."

Megan: "I think we should keep President Bush [Leah stifles a shriek], but you told me he had to go. And I agree, 8 years IS a long time."

Me: "So why John McCain and Sarah Palin?"

Megan: "It's important to love America and they love America."

Me: "Do you think that Barack Obama and Joe Biden don't love America?"

Megan: "Hmm, I guess they do too. I don't like war. I want to vote for who will end the war."

Me: "Yes, peace is very important. They will all end the war, it's just a matter of who will end it quicker."

Megan: "Well, you know I like to do stuff fast. Super fast. Zoom! I can run SO fast, Mom!"

Me: [sidestepping a discussion about foreign relations policy and troop withdrawal plans] "So, how do you feel about taxes?"

Megan: "Taxes? What do they taste like?"

Like the title says, just when you think she is a genuis...
