Welcome to the party, hosted this week at The Skwib. As his regular advice column has been pre-empted for the Carnival, we thought we’d ask General Kang to do the honors and introduce the categories and posts.
Kang’s Picks for the Tutu Brigade:
As you know, I am an Intergalactic Warlord always looking for new talent. I prefer to enlist chimps in my elite Tutu Brigade (they are able to carry off the tutus-and-plasma rifle combination the best, sartorially speaking); however, these bloggers seem to have what it takes to write a compelling entry, so perhaps they are ready for life in Kang’s Army.
Tynan at Better Than Your Boyfriend has a tale of spelunking gone wrong in Exploring Airman’s Cave. Warning: if you are claustrophobic, this may be freak you out. Thag didn’t know what the big deal was all about, but then, he’s a caveman, what does he know?
Despite his non-primate form, Aloysius Katz always entertains us here at The Skwib, and this SAT-question-slash-post is no exception: Hairballs are to creativity as ringtones are to Ghana: huhudious posted at Catymology.
We liked the simplicity of this post, and the clarity of the message. Smilerz presents Victory Over Terrorism One Man At A Time.
Satire & ‘umor
Mark let me host only if I promised to give satire and ‘umor top billing after my picks. And to mention that The Skwib hosts the weekly Carnival of Satire. He will pay when my fleet arrives!
Wendy Boswell at Snarky Gossip has an edition of Separated at Birth – Jessica Simpson and Orange BoohBah. Unfortunately, Dr. Tundra had a peyote milkshake slightly before reading this post, and Orange BoohBah caused what can only be described as an “explosive” reaction. We’re still not sure what it is — it reminded me of the Tregdolian Ambassador before I had it shaved and fed to my gnarg-dogs, but I’m sure Wendy does not have a faster-than-light starship to get to Tregdolia, so I doubt that’s it.
El Capitan at Baboon Pirates discovers the thrill of Cadillac FlambÃ©. Note: this post is engagingly illustrated by the writer in the Neo-Stick Figure style (the early period), made famous by the Neecknabian uberchimp master, Bobo.
Buckley F. Williams at The Nose On Your Face presents Mary Jo Kopechne To Patrick Kennedy: “You Sir, Are No Ted Kennedy.”
Economics & Bizniz
You humans are fascinated with money, despite the fictional nature of its underpinnings. I find this amusing and will use it to my advantage when I take over your so-called Earth.
Pamela Slim, entrepreneur and trainer goes Che Guevera in an Open letter to CEOs, COOs, CIOs and CFOs across the corporate world posted at Escape from Cubicle Nation. A great post on how corporatations can stop sucking the life out of its
Wayne Hurlbert at Blog Business World has a book review of Management by Baseball.
Dan Melson at Searchlight Crusade has some useful advice on Mortgage Closing Costs: What is Real and What is Junk?
We don’t know what ERISA Cases are, but Paul M. Secunda has the alarming news that the Number of ERISA Cases Are Skyrocketing. Run! Flee! ERISA is coming to eat your face, or do something to your pension.
Soccer Dad presents Every form of refuge has its price.
Arts, Culture & The Weeb
Miriam’s ideas presents Nine reasons for a woman to decline being a Muslim. Only nine?
Life, Death & Taxes
For bipedal hominids with large brains, you seem strangely fascinated with politics. Most of the primate species my army has conquered is happy to give up this source of rancor and petty squabbling. You will see understand after my crack Gorilloid troops have subdued you with their whiffle-clubs.
This however, is very interesting: For those of you just dying to know, Tulin has Philadelphia Political Events, Fundrasiers, and Lectures for the month of May posted at PoliticsPhilly.com . Dr. Tundra was very upset that he missed May 2nd’s coolest event, Drinking Liberally at Tangier.
Jack Cluth at The People’s Republic of Seabrook tries to understand why the ignorant and small-minded shall always be among us. Warning: some Michelle Malkin-related content in this post.
I am now officially be-mused.
Self Help for the Blogging Primate
Paul at Paul’s Tips has advice on How to get a job paying more than $100,000 a year. As soon as he saw the first point, “choose the right profession,” Mark knew he was screwed. He should think about becomging my apprentice: Intergalactic Warlords have great earning potential.
Blogging about oneself, or one’s house
And these two last posts were very hard to categorize properly, but we think we have parsed the banana, so to speak.
Thanks for visiting the carnival this week. Next week, this collection of human wisdom and wit (such as it is) will be hosted by Accidental Verbosity, that is, unless my fleet arrives first, in which case, prepare to bow to your new ape-overlord.
