Now that former Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Mitt Romney has educated us to the FACT that the Russian Empire is the biggest geopolitical threat facing the Several States, it becomes even more important for the distinguished citizenry of this great nation to recognize the other major players that could affect the outcome of a new European war. Remember, the landscape is constantly changing, and the allies of today may become our foes of tomorrow. Additionally, rapid advances in technology have changed the balance of power among the major players of Europe. Read the rest of this entry →

Hello again Wordsmokers! Due to indifferent demand and my need to keep occupied lest I bite all my nails off during this game, I have returned to “live” blog Game 4 of the Vancouver Canucks-Los Angeles Kings Stanley Cup Playoff series! A quick recap: The Canucks are down 3-0 in the series, Daniel Sedin has returned to the lineup after a lengthy absence due to injury, and Los Angeles still has two hockey teams.
Let’s dive in!
PERIOD THE FIRST
So far…not much has happened. Cory Schneider (Vancouver Goalie) has made an excellent save! Apparently because Schneider is starting, that means Vancouver’s #1 goalie, Roberto Luongo, is “on his way out” according to Vancouver sports media, which HA. HAHAHAHAHA. Ha ha ho hee hee. I love drummed up controversy in Sports. Read the rest of this entry →
Hello! I’m PimpMyCouch, and I represent the Canadian Content portion of Wordsmoker. Tonight, I’m “live” blogging the Stanley Cup Playoffs, specifically Game 3 of the Vancouver Canucks-Los Angeles Kings series. Some of you may be intrigued, some indifferent, some confused because you thought hockey was limited to the 49th parallel and above, and why the hell does Los Angeles have a hockey team? (Note: They actually have two.) I will be “live” blogging the game, as I am a bit of a moron computer-wise and don’t really know how to live blog, so I’m just going to blog about it in real time. Don’t judge me!
I will break this up over the three periods of play and any subsequent overtime periods. To date, the Kings lead the series 2-0. Full disclosure: I am a Canucks fan. Go ahead, get your jokes in now. Read the rest of this entry →

You know – maybe Unfun is right in her all-encompassing hatred of anything Japanese. I mean – she’s let it build up over a number of years – now she’s at a point where she hisses at sushi and spits on Honda cars as they pass her on the street. I don’t want to even link to the Tumblr she posts on a daily basis where she links the Yakuza to global warming, 9-11 and the death of Patrick Swayze, or why she recommends strangulation of all Japanese females at birth as a means of fighting deforestation in the Amazon basin. Just look at the above video of a monkey wearing a little mask and jumping about what appears to be a restaurant or barbers, and I’ll let you decide.

Ran into Wordsmoker the other day, and damned if this isn’t the best educational site I ever did see. Already I feel smarter. I learned about phoney denim diapers, names for Sarah Palin’s breasties (we call them tits in Canada), that Helen Thomas is an international idiot, and some helpful hints on yoga that I will now incorporate into Lady’s Eskimo-cises aerobics routines.
