Sir, it's not an offence to let your cat eat your bacon. Okay? And we don't arrest cats, I'm very sorry.


From Salon:

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

At the beginning of a press briefing at the Pentagon today, George W. Bush took a few relatively tough questions about Hurricane Rita, the administration's failure to capture Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, what he's going to cut to pay for Hurricane Katrina and why it's taking so long to secure Iraq's border with Syria. Just as it seemed that the president needed the breather that a friendly, Jeff Gannon-style query might provide, Bush called for a question from someone named Bianca.

There was silence.

"Nobody named Bianca?" Bush asked. "Well, sorry Bianca's not here. I'll be glad to answer her question."

When another reporter -- someone who wasn't Bianca -- offered to ask a question in her stead, Bush said he was "just trying to spread the joy around of asking a question." A minute or two after that, a female reporter tried to put a question to the president.

"Are you Bianca?" Bush asked.

"No I'm not," she said, "Anita -- from Fox News."

"OK," Bush said. "I was looking for Bianca. I'm sorry."

So was the Commander-in-Chiefbot told there would be a planted reporter named Bianca lobbing him softball questions, or did Cheney's hospitalization result in faulty programming not being corrected?

It's five thousand for kissing, ten thousand for snuggling... End of list.

Whoa, you're baking something for your husband's birthday?

Well, I'm using a mix. I'm not so good at the baking.

GS: If you had to choose between kicking evil in the head or the behind, which would you choose, and why? Minsc: I'm not sure I understand the question. I have two feet, do I not? You do not take a small plate when the feast of evil welcomes seconds.


(Okay, that one's a bit of a cheat.)
