Want It!


Antique looking books seem perfectly harmless until someone walks by, then the middle book slides out toward the victim as if it will fall from the shelf. Books also emit spooky sounds for a totally haunted effect.

Helena has a new golf course


The view from the 8th green:


It's actually a 1/5 scale par-three course - 64-101 yards:

A Beatles Joke

Ringo became a gentleman farmer, but was having no success. His neighbor's animals were all strong and healthy, so he went and asked him the secret to his success.

"well, for chickens, you wanna plant some corn." The farmer said.

"Right, a field of corn for chickens." Ringo replied.

"And for horses, you wanna plant some corn." The farmer said.

"Right, a field of corn for horses." Ringo replied.

"And for cows, you wanna..."

"I know, I know," Rigno butts in, "I want a field of corn."

"No," replied the farmer, "everyone knows its strawberry fields for heifers."

No End In Sight


The first film of its kind to chronicle the reasons behind Iraq’s descent into guerilla war, warlord rule, criminality and anarchy, NO END IN SIGHT is a jaw-dropping, insider’s tale of wholesale incompetence, recklessness and venality. Based on over 200 hours of footage, the film provides a candid retelling of the events following the fall of Baghdad in 2003 by high ranking officials such as former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, Ambassador Barbara Bodine (in charge of Baghdad during the Spring of 2003), Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell, and General Jay Garner (in charge of the occupation of Iraq through May 2003), as well as Iraqi civilians, American soldiers and prominent analysts. NO END IN SIGHT examines the manner in which the principal errors of U.S. policy - the use of insufficient troop levels, allowing the looting of Baghdad, the purging of professionals from the Iraqi government and the disbanding of the Iraqi military - largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today.

Nick the Dragon Slayer - a story with a moral

Once upon a time, and far-far away, lived a beautiful Queen with voluptuous breasts. Nick the Dragon Slayer knew that the penalty for his desire would be death should he try to touch them.

One day Nick revealed his secret desire to his colleague, Horatio the Physician, who was the King's chief doctor. Horatio the Physician exclaimed that he
could arrange for Nick the Dragon Slayer to satisfy his desire, but it would cost him 1,000 gold coins to arrange it. Without pause, Nick the Dragon Slayer
readily agreed to the scheme and would pay when it was proven.

The next day, Horatio the Physician made a batch of itching powder and poured a little bit into the Queen's brassiere while she bathed. Soon after she
dressed, the itching commenced and grew intense.

Upon being summoned to the Royal Chambers to address this incident, Horatio the Physician, informed the King and Queen that only a special saliva, if applied for four hours, would cure this type of itch, and that tests had shown that only the saliva of Nick the Dragon Slayer would work as the antidote to cure the
itch. The King quickly summoned Nick the Dragon Slayer. Horatio the Physician then slipped Nick the Dragon Slayer the antidote for the itching powder, which he quickly put into his mouth, and for the next four hours, Nick worked passionately on the Queen's voluptuous and magnificent breasts. The Queen's itching was eventually relieved, and Nick the Dragon Slayer left satisfied and touted as a hero. Upon returning to his chamber, Nick the Dragon Slayer found Horatio the Physician demanding his payment of 1,000 gold coins.

With his obsession now satisfied, Nick the Dragon Slayer couldn't have cared less and, knowing that Horatio the Physician could never report this matter to the King, with a laugh just told him to get lost. The next day, Horatio the Physician slipped a massive dose of the same itching powder into the King's underwear.

The King immediately summoned Nick the Dragon Slayer...

Bong Hits for Jesus - The Game


Has the recent "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" case confused you about the current state of free speech rights in public high schools?

To help you sort out which speech is protected and which is not in this post-Bong Hits 4 Jesus world, we've teamed up with our friends at RedAphid.com to create "Bong Hits 4 Jesus - The Game!"

The wick is not real but contains an LED instead. It gets lighted whenever you try to remove money from it. Should you persist in getting your fair share of nickels and times from inside, it will start vibrating and making noises until it erupts, scattering all your hard earned cash throughout the room.

This sounds like fun


If you've got some Alka-Seltzer tablets, a drill, some string, and lots of water, you've got all you need for a fun, summer-time (outdoor) game.

In downtown Helena


I wish that some of the people who say the deer are allright to have in Helena would bump into this fellow late at night while taking the garbage out or going for a walk.

Click the link for the proposed solution. Then note the date and the people in the comments section who are very, very stupid.

Oh good, now we know what the problem is.

The three best things about going to a softball game for 10 year-old girls.



1. Their pre-batting routine is done with the same seriousness and ritual as a major league batter. Which is both cute and impressive on someone who isn't even five feet tall.

2. The girls make up their own cheers, which are postive about the player up to bat rather than dissing the other team or players. My favorite? (shout each letter in the first three lines)

"G O O D I
G O O D I
G O O D I
Good eye!"

Best shout-out by a parent: "It's just a game . . . so win!"

3. Best softball team name ever. **
