Andrew Klavan has a delightful episode about America’s newspaper of record:

Several blogs out there are presenting this stand up act of Carlin as their Earth Day offering.

Mr. Klavan has a humorous infomercial on religion, which I find clever and smile inducing. Enjoy.

Our lazy American pronunciation at least gives us additional opportunities to laugh.
