Ah, morning. Wake up, stumble around the apartment, feed the cat, get the coffee, sit down...whaddaya need? Sometimes I need a good laugh, but don't often get it. I'm usually bombarded with things like natural disasters, tragic shooting deaths, my candidate morphing into a conservative, and Atheist Nexus being a Christian sham. But today, we have been provided ample belly-laughs courtesy of San Francisco:

Some presidents get carved into Mt Rushmore; others have airports, motorways, and even entire cities named in their honour. But when George Bush leaves office, his most visible memorial may be a mouldering patch of human effluent.

In November, alongside casting their ballot for the next president, the people of San Francisco will also vote on a measure to rename one of the city’s largest sewage works the George W Bush Sewage Plant, to provide a “fitting monument” to the outgoing commander-in-chief’s achievements.

Activists from the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco, a mischievously-named group behind the move, will ask supporters to participate in a “synchroni(z)ed flush”.

It may sound like a student prank, but the proposal is almost certain to be passed. Democrats usually secure between 70 and 80 per cent of the vote in San Francisco - and in 2006 passed a proposition to impeach Mr Bush and his Vice-President Dick Cheney by a majority of almost two to one.


Ha! Thank you San Fran. Thank you.

Hahaha...Well, San Fran thinks big. That's no reason the rest of us can't act small. :)
