Funny Foto Friday: Election Confusion

Lots of little updates that I probably should make into a full post for each.....

After my quick turn run the other day, today logged 11 pretty good miles at 7:21 pace.  I’m on track to run nearly 50 miles this week which means I am well on my way to finding my running groove again.  I’ll run 60 miles next week and then I’ll be BACK!  I’m going to run the Shiner Beer Half Marathon in Mid December and am likely going to go for a 1:25-1:27.....Which basically means that I am going to have to put in more than a few puke threshold runs between now and then.


There was a murder a quarter mile away from my new place today.  It isn’t THAT bad of a neighborhood, but I guess that if you give someone a gun and enough drugs/booze, anything can happen.  I ran by it during my run today and there were SIX news trucks.  I didn’t even know that Phoenix had six news channels.....


It is politics time of year in the United States. I pay as little attention as possible (it is the American way) without being completely ill-informed.  Either way, I think it is crazy how some of the people act and how facts can be skewed.  A few years back, I did a post about some of the strange signs that were seemly in conflict of each other.  You can check out the original post here.  Well...... THEY’RE BACK!!!  So strange.

So, I'm voting yes to go but no to stop?  Can't I just vote "maybe"?

Especially in my oxygen deprived mid-run state, I couldn't figure it out.


Finally, I’m not political, but when a catchy as hell non-english video becomes the 3rd most popular video on YouTube (half a billion hits), I feel that it is my duty to post at least SOMETHING about it.  Gangnam style is a Korean rap song about the silly things that people do that are considered luxurious.  Original video here:


Well, since the elections are quickly approaching, someone with a nice suit and way too much time on their hands made a bit of a Mitt Romney parody that is pretty funny.  Because, if you can’t make fun of rich people or politicians, who CAN you make fun of? 

And, as if you didn’t have enough Korean in your head already, here is a great Halloween light version.  Happy Friday!

It looks like those campaign signs are made by the same person, huh?

Not to go completely off topic here, but we totally had Gangnam Style play for our bridal party introduction at the reception... LOL!

Oh my gosh those parodies are aweseom! THANKS! Had to repost the Mitt one on FB. Too good to pass up.

OMG! Gangnam style really does gain popularity all over the world. A lot of people do parodies for it and its pretty hilarious. Now that the election is in full blow they wouldn't pass up the opportunity to use it for their campaign. Wow!
