Day 73

Iago no longer the Aflac duck

Comedians often quote an industry-wide formula:  "Pain + time = comedy", sometimes first attributed to Carol Burnett.  I guess, when Tweeting about Japan, he forgot the time part.  Jokes like "I was talking to my Japanese real estate agent. I said 'is there a school in this area.' She said 'not now, but just wait.'" or "Japan called me. They said 'maybe those jokes are a hit in the U.S., but over here, they're all sinking.'" might be funny to some (or even most!), but they're still too close to inappropriate for a major corporation to sit by and do nothing about.  He walked a fine line... and tripped.

Nuclear reactor in Japan leaking radiation

Somewhere in Washington, Obama is secretly glad he now has another excuse that the American public will stand behind to NOT build anymore nuclear reactors for the energy crisis.


  1. last time i heard the meltdown is at a controlled level 4 and that there is no more leaks of radiation.

  2. Pain + Time does = Comedy. Just look at Romeo & Juliet...that story is hilarious (if you read between the lines)

  3. Forreal with Obama, Nuclear energy is still safe. Yea, they can melt down when you have a historic level earthquake impacting its area, but that doesnt mean it should be abandoned.

  4. Hahaha I thought they were funny lol

  5. That joke is a hit here in australia ;D, followed
