For all who disdain the politicians of the world, perhaps we could re-launch this once effective method of expressing our disapproval. I'm thinking it would be far more efficient than polling.

OMG how I love this one.  -

Some of them definitely need to be a-salted.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Dman may want us to Steer clear of puns, but I think we should carry on because we have already invested quite a bit of Heifer-t!
