Ewwwwwwwww.

"3-Year-Old's Birthday Party Theme: 'NewsHour'":
When a young St. Paul boy got to pick the theme for his third birthday party, he didn't pick Nemo or the Wiggles or Dora the Explorer. He didn't even pick his favorite sports team.

Henry Schally picked "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer".

His mother, Jennifer Schally, designed party hats complete with pictures of the PBS news program's regular contributors.

"I think most kids get their favorite show for their birthday party theme," Jennifer Schally said.

Henry's father, Troy Schally, explained he and his wife have watched the show during dinner since their son was an infant. He believes the show's distinctive theme caught his son's attention.

Or perhaps it was the dark allure of Jim Lehrer's soulless, cockroach-colored eyes.

"Looking into them reminds me of something Nietzsche said: 'And when you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you', Brit."
Oh, Henry. Perhaps when you get older, you'll ask for a FAIR-themed party instead. C'mon: be the first kid on your block—hell, the first kid anywhere, probably—to dress up as Noam Chomsky for Halloween. Mind you, your local TV station won't cover that, but it would still be cool.

(I'm still wrestling with computer problems, so no Random Flickr Blogging again this week. In fact, I just popped in to share this bit of weirdness. Be back later this week, hopefully.)

Hi, I was looking over your spam and didn't quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for different ways to kick your spammy, Mammon-worshipping ass... I did find this though ... a place where a thoughtful blogger examines media spin, raises philosophical issues, and entertains us with Random Flickr captions.
I made over your sad little spam having fun!
