Hanes ComfortBlend Commercial – Softer Than a Kitten

Published on Feb 12, 2013 by HanesOnline

This ad may have backfired a bit: some commenters on YouTube prefer the kittens to the T-shirt.

Update: Zimmerman has been found not guilty.

(CNN) — George Zimmerman is not guilty of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, a Florida jury decided late Saturday.

The fact that Zimmerman fired the bullet that killed Martin was never in question, but the verdict means the six-person jury had reasonable doubt that the shooting amounted to a criminal act.

The verdict caps a case that has inflamed passions for well over a year, much of it focused on race and gun rights.

The six-person jury — all women — had three choices: to find Zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder; to find him guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter; or to find him not guilty.

The jurors deliberated for 16½ hours total, including 13 on Saturday alone, before delivering their verdict.

When he learned his fate, a subdued Zimmerman had little visible reaction.

Justice has been served.

I love rural hand-painted highway signs that are spelled correctly and get right to the point, like this one. (Note that the pavement is blackened from all the cars screeching to a stop upon spotting this effective advertisement).

And speaking of roadtrips, at the sign post up ahead, next stop is

Reminds me of a small town I lived in for a while.  It was so small that the dentist and the proctologist was the same guy. It didn’t bother us much, we just scheduled our dental appointments for first thing in the morning. (Okay, I stole that joke from Pinkard & Bowden, but so what?)

So bend over and say “Ahh” because everyone has a scheduled appointment with

Three  guys were sitting around bragging about the best bar they’d ever been to.

Gus: “The best bar? I know a place that for every beer you buy, the bartender gives you a free shot.”

Walter: “That’s nothing. In my neighborhood there’s a bar that does the same, and they have a free all-you-can-eat buffet, too.”

Killgore: “Heh. I know of a better place. Free dinner and all you can drink, and at 10PM they take you into the back room and you get laid.”

The other guys’ eyes got wide in disbelief. “No way. You’ve been there?”
Killgore: “No, but my sister has.”

Badump-Quiche. And with that we’re off and running on The Overnight Open Thread.
