About "Macho Madness" and American football culture:

"It's not news that homophobia and hypermachismo are commonplace in sports (and the military), but it's depressing to consider how unlikely that is to ever change." — the occasional critic

About "UFO in Jerusalem":

"My fave part of the video is the woman saying, 'We've seen 'em in Meessesseepee like tha-it, but never like tha-it.'

Why is it always the bumpkin that sees a UFO? Just once I'd like someone, like, oh say, Bill Gates or Colin Powell to see one.

Just ONCE, Mr. Space Alien, is that too much to ask?" — julie noir

About "From Pyramid Big Dig to Big Do-Over":

"Will somebody finally realize its one, true purpose — as a mausoleum? It could become one of the seven modern wonders of the world and actually — yes — attract tourism. Add to that the fact that funeral services are a recession-proof industry and the whole world will be dying to be buried in Memphis." — jeff

Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and Minnesota senator Michelle Bachmann:

"I like the cage match idea [with Sarah Palin]. Maybe we could arrange for it to take place at the Pyramid and get Jesse Ventura to be the special guest referee." — mad merc
