Rude Awakening #100 - Prospero Ano y Felicidad

If Jose Feliciano hadn't recorded "Feliz Navidad," every fourth song on all-Christmas radio stations there'd be 3 minutes of dead air.

Pre-Election Wrap Up - Special Morning Edition

Election "White Board Wisdom"

A couple of weeks ago, FunnyEye took a week off and encouraged all of you to do a little DIY humor.

Chris took up the challenge, charting the reationship below based on a real life incident. He was stuck on the highway behind a Prius with an Obama / Biden sticker and a pickup truck with one for McCain / Palin. He offers this White Board Wisdom as the origin of “Drill, baby, drill” as a GOP rallying cry.

Something that I'm not sure fits on the chart: spotting an SUV this weekend with two bumper stickers - one for McCain / Palin and the other for alternative fuels.

Speaking of "car art," here was a funny Shoebox card that came to FE4CG headquarters recently from our Fan Club president.

A Musical Interlude

Before voting, you owe it yourself to check out this video adaptation of the Palin - Couric interview. And you should probably look at this as well.

Three Random Thoughts While Waiting an Hour in Line to Vote

  1. This line’s so long, I may get to the front by the 2012 election.
  2. I hope these people are more informed than I am.
  3. Voting is a lot like sex. One hour of wondering if the thing's moving, 2 minutes of something happening, and two years of waiting around for your next opportunity.

DIY Week @ FE4CG - Top 10 List

Wrap up DIY FE4CG Week by coming up with a "Top 10" List. Want to know the best way to do it? Go to a Happy Hour tonight, suggest a Top 10 topic, and as everybody gets toasted, write down what they say on a cocktail napkin. If your friends are even mildly funny, you'll have most of what you need to finish the list.

Then send your DIY FE4CG ideas from the whole week to so I can run your stuff and take another week of vacation!

DIY Week @ FE4CG - Economist's Corner

Surely there's an economist or a quant geek that you work with (you can spot them based on their clothing) that can take any topic and turn it into a chart or graph.

Best approach - simply ask them to diagram their last statement for you. They'll be happy to oblige! Then just copy it into the DIY "Economist's Corner" cartoon and send it to

Interstingly enough, the staff economist at FE4CG made the newspaper today for his nerdy hotness. Remember, you saw him here first ladies and geeks!
