Carnival of Satire (#108)

Welcome to the wintry and depressed 108th edition of the Carnival of Satire. We begin, as always, with hobos:

GrrlScientist found this clip of Jon Hodgman’s meisterwerk on the American Experience: Hobo Matters:


And if that wasn’t enough proof, Madeleine Begun Kane reassures us (in poetry) that Irony Has At Least Seven More Lives . Phew.

The Carnival of SatireWill the economy get bad enough to see a resurgence in hobos? Archer at Lawyerworldland has four scary scenarios in which we would be so lucky!

Monkey Breath learned the following, which must be a bad sign: IRS Going Out of Business.

In entertainment news, Satire Patch has the news that David Caruso Will Receive Bailout Money To Pay For Acting Lessons

Politics! Sammy Benoit makes his case for why a Yid with a Lid should be Senator: Governor Patterson PICK ME, Not Kennedy.

The Brain Twinkey has a harrowing tale: Lost Hiker Survived by Eating His Frozen Nuts

But at what temperature do nuts freeze? In this editions’ non-satire slot, Poobomber explains freezing and the difference between Fahrenheit and Celcius.

And that’s it for the 108th edition. Thanks to these fine folks for helping us with webby-stuff: the Blog Carnival for their form; and the listings at the Ubercarnival, Ferdy’s permanent floating ping festival, and for the listings at the Blog Carnival too. Also, you may find some satire here if you poke around a bit. Here too. Thanks to horizontal integration for the pic of some guy who’s nuts are freezing.
