The Weekend Desk Report
Be sure to slap on your sunscreen this weekend. If you remember how, that is.
We don't like to keep our money in the Human Misery Exchange, but we've got a strong feeling Hunger and Starvation will soon post impressive gains.
Swarm of vicious bloodsuckers headed to Chicago this month! Will presumably avoid swarm of vicious bloodsuckers sworn in last month.
Speaking of vicious bloodsuckers, Rod Blagojevich this week tried to explain away his constant abuse of the truth by likening himself to a quarterback. Unfortunately for Blago, it turns out even quarterbacks lie whenever it suits them.
Yemeni officials are strongly denying that President Ali Abdullah Saleh has fled to Saudi Arabia after sustaining a mild head injury. And why wouldn't we believe them? After all, it's probably just a flesh wound.
Finally, we've certainly had a go at poor old Sepp Blatter in this space, but we'd like to congratulate him on his recent re-election as president of FIFA. And once he's cleaned up that mess we'll be congratulate him on his next high-profile job as President of Ohio State.
