Have you ever wished that you were at Wrigley Field on October 8 and 9, 1929, when the Cubs lost the first two games of the World Series to the Philadelphia Athletics? Me neither, but someone does, and that someone should get right over to YouTube for six and a half minutes of silent film. (I was more interested in the fans than the game: What's up with all those hats? And where are the women?)

 

"It is hard not to wonder what the last several years would have been like if President Bush and the Republican Party had, as winners, demonstrated the same kind of generosity and inclusiveness shown by Santorum and the White House as losers." -- Cass Sunstein of the University of Chicago. Read the whole thing -- it's not long, and don't forget the commenters, many of whom think Sunstein is just too nice.

 

"AFV893342: Man on bike jumps makeshift ramp, crashes into tree. However, humor of footage compromised by subsequent close-up of compound fracture of humerus and squeals of horrific pain." More alleged rejects from "America's Funniest Home Videos" at McSweeney's. (Hat tip to 3 Quarks Daily.)

 

I am "probably . . . from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri)" according to my answers to the What American Accent Do You Have? quiz. Take it if you like to ponder whether the first syllable of "horrible" rhymes with "whore." (Hat tip to Abstract Nonsense.)
