I'm sitting in the coffee shop, working on a project, and a guy comes in wearing large rubber hobbit feet. No one says anything. People greet him as normal, he orders his coffee, and sits down, to work on the computer.

Even hobbits have to do spreadsheets, it appears.

This may be too esoteric a joke to be enjoyed by anyone not a lawyer, but it amused me to no end today.

So the Republican National Committee has a registered trademark on the elephant with three stars in it, and the "GOP" name. They sued CafePress, which allows various folks to design their own items, for the use of these trademarks.

When Politico, a political blog, pointed this out and the blogosphere started picking up the story, the RNC settled. But HOW did they settle?

They settled by allowing everyone to continue selling their products, except vendors whose designs consist solely of the trademarked elephant logo or the initials “GOP” without any other expressive elements. Those without such expressive elements will have to go through the RNC's licensing process.

To clarify, if your products only said Yay GOP or have the elephant, you have to get a special license. If your product includes the elephant with a red slash, or a comment that says "The GOP Sucks!" that's additional expressive elements. So, critical of the RNC? No problem, you can continue selling. Pro-GOP and wanting simply to express your appreciation for the Republican party? Please jump through licensing hoops.

I really hope they continue this level of idiocy through the election season.

Indiana lawyer Tony Zirkle is making a run for the Republican nomination for a congressional seat. There is a general rule for political candidates that involves not being photographed in front of Hitler's portrait. Apparently, Zirkle missed that one.

But wait, It gets better. Read about the porn dragon for yourself.

I blame [livejournal.com profile] gizbot for showing me this video. You can blame me when you pass it on. :)

None of this is particularly new, but I've often been tempted to do something like this annotated rant about various things. I like the idea a lot, and the execution is pretty well done too.

A link in case the image doesn't work, but this is why I hate Valentine's Day.

I love this card!

Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] lrc.

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] d3l1r1um. This is the LJ Year in Review meme. Take the first entry from each month and post the first sentence/paragraph/whatever makes most sense. I added a note to it, classifying the entry. another meme all about me )
So yes, mostly invitations and memes with the occasional random link or point of amusement.

I'm avoiding work. This was spot on though.

<td align="center">Family is most important in your life.

Having a high focus on family indicates that you are a loving and nurturing person. You want to have a nice big family of your own, and you are very close with your siblings and parents.

So someone posted on LJ about a cake they ordered. It was.... impressive & NSFW. But it made me laugh. (Yes, pictures included in the post).

Some days it feels like the universe feels this way too: http://www.ucomics.com/nonsequitur/2005/08/07/

I'm not bitchy, I'm just assertive.
