Is it being up on pop culture or just sad that when I saw "Canada on Strike" episode of South Park last week that before they even introduced the viral video people, I knew who they were and named them off?

Numa Numa guy, Chris Crocker, Star Wars kid, Afro-Ninja (who falls on his head), that Chocolate Rain guy, laughing baby, dramatic chipmunk (yes, I know - it's a prairie dog) and Tron guy.

The full list and links to the various videos is available here. And more internet phenomena.

But what is funnier (or more sad by his own admission) was when I told Mark about this last night, he knew all of the videos just from those descriptions above.

Thirsty, much?


WHEREAS, it has come to pass that the heavens are shut up and a drought of Biblical proportions has been visited upon the Southern United States, and

WHEREAS, the parched and dry conditions have weighed heavily upon the State of Georgia and sorely afflicted those who inhabit the Great City of Atlanta, and

WHEREAS, the leaders of Georgia have assembled like the Children of Israel in the desert, grumbled among themselves and have begun to cast longing eyes toward the north, coveting their neighbor’s assets, and

WHEREAS, the lack of water has led some misguided souls to seek more potent refreshment or for other reasons has resulted in irrational and outrageous actions seeking to move a long established and peaceful boundary, and

WHEREAS, it is deemed better to light a candle than curse the darkness, and better to offer a cool, wet kiss of friendship rather than face a hot and angry legislator gone mad from thirst, and

Whereas, it is feared that if today they come for our river, tomorrow they might come for our Jack Daniels or George Dickel,

NOW THEREFORE, In the interest of brotherly love, peace, friendship, mutual prosperity, citywide self promotion, political grandstanding and all that

I Ron Littlefield, Mayor of the City of Chattanooga, Tennessee,
Do hereby Proclaim that Wednesday, February 27, 2008 shall be known as

“Give Our Georgia Friends a Drink Day”

Most Favorite thing I've ever said at work

A while ago, a mom called to rant about something. I told her upfront that I couldn't help her; that our office was not the right one and they needed to call somebody else. "Your daughter needs to call..." She and I went round and round for a good 10 minutes. Finally....

Mom: "So what you are saying is that you aren't the right person and you can't help me."
Me: "Yes, ma'am... but I will be happy to listen if you feel the need to continue to talk."

She didn't get it.
