Midweek Links

Too tired to write a preamble

Who knew Jeffrey Goldberg has such a wonderful sense of humour?

The News continues its tradition of drug-induced editorials. The opening sentence is classic.

ABC will be auctioning off some of the props from Lost. Since we strive to entertain you guys on a daily basis, would our readers mind setting up a fund and buying me Mr Eko's Jesus stick?

The Daily Telegraph uses the Cyber Crime Bill as a way to tell Zardari jokes.

The New Republic grades Tom-Friedman's joke-telling abilities.

Pakistani newspapers love their awful puns:

PM re-hires Mr Lone, who is no longer alone

Were you guys aware that Pearl Jam still exists? And they don't suck? And they sing happy songs?

Oh my gosh, I was JUST going to quote that joke. That cracked me up. Also liked:

Robber: Give me your money!
Zardari: Don't you know who I am? I'm Asif Ali Zardari.
Robber: Give me all my money!!
