The Making of a Legend

 This has certainly been making the rounds but it does bear linking to.

Asshat reporter acts like pompous jerk.

Asshat reporter proudly blogs about his asshattery.

For possibly the only time in the entire history of the serious biddness that is the intwerweb (from as far back as when it was a series of straws) 196 commenters are in complete agreement on something.

Thank you asshat reporter.

You indirectly made me  LOL.

You are truly a legendary asshat.

Update: Docweasel, who preserved the legendary moment of internet unity, has relevant updates here and here. The reporter is taking pains to cover for his wire service (which shows professionalism) and does seem contrite. He seems like a pushy arrogant little cuss, but most reporters are. If they weren't there wouldn't be any Spider Jerusalem would there? Docweasel considers the issue closed.

Credit where its due, he’s not cutting and running, as he easily could, he’s come back to explain, apologize and take his licks. Ok, that chapter is done, its rude and useless to keep bashing the guy once he’s apologized.

 Fair enough. Additionally being IN Iraq and OUTSIDE the green zone puts him way ahead of a lot of reporters. So, loyal Brickmuppeteers, don't go harassing the guy on his new blog, that's tacky, stalky, and otherwise smells of Code Pinko behavior...just don't.

Jihad of the Squirrels

Instapundit points out a recent incident where an apparent jihadi squirrel deprived a neighborhood of power and took out a Toyota Camry.

A little digging turned up this gem...Yes, indeed, it's proof that the squirrel uprising is well underway, and has been targeting our electrical infrastructure for some time. This needs to get more attention than it does if only because squirrels, being faster and smaller are far more difficult targets than...you know....zombies.

A Poor Choice of Method....

More remarkable than the notion that someone would commit suicide by pointing a FLARE GUN in their mouth...is that Wonderduck and I IM'd each other this story nigh simultaneously.

We truely have a low opinion of each other.

I Want One

                 
       

I have no idea if this is real or not. It was on one of the "Chans" last night.

Another cute but uncredited bit of bandwidth abuse below the fold.

UPDATE: In the comments, uber commenter JP Gibb debunks the Geek Waffelizer as a "shop" and correctly credits the .gif below to Tales From the Bully Pulpit. Which is going for....$74 !!??...on Amazon as I post this.
