USA Vice President Al Gore

USA Vice President Al Gore really put his foot in it this time. Seems he urged students to drive drunk responsibly. That makes as much sense as urging people to participate in safe sex without protection. Smart Al.

Or is jaxomlotus guilty of the MetaFelony of Self-Promotion?

Whatever, it got ME another link... Thanx, harmfullator. Is my "Onion/Real News" story officially a "meme" yet?

That's only a MetaMisdemeanor.

It's not a felony unless you link your own website in the body copy.

hrmm you know as someone who lives in Idaho I dont think anybody gives a crap how you spell potato(e).
Gore just isn't very good at expressing himself coherently.

Compared to who?

And I happen to think that students who drive drunk responsibly are much better than the other kind. I am, however, willing to be convinced.

And I am not running for President in 2000.

Y'know, I never was the type to drive drunk responsibly. Mostly I never drove at all. But now that Gore is standing behind the idea, I'm gonna get plastered and eat some asphalt!
