Know any good recipes for Jackalope stew?

The Origin of the Name?
Well it was approx 1962-64 [can't remember]. I was at the now defunct burger chain White Tower in the sitting room/buttery. They were running a contest to name their stuffed frankenstein like animal. Why I came up with the name jackalope I don't remember, other than the fact it looked like a jack rabbit and an antelope [the horns] so jackalope!

Last weekend I was out with my family taking our usual hike. and bam. just like that some flying bunny w/ antlers comes out. I took a photo of the creature to it indeed a jackalope?

Remember when Jimmy Carter claimed to have been pursued by a crazed rabbit? Well, guess what it really was?

The Jackalope (Lepus-temperamentalus) is one of the rarest animals in the world. A cross between an extinct pygmy-deer and a species of killer-rabbit, they are extremely shy unless approached. None have ever been captured alive and this rare photo shows a mighty buck about to strike.

Known by the ancients as "deerbunnies", it wasn't until the early 1960's that the modern more fearsome "jackalope" name was adopted.

It is written that you can extract a Jackalope's milk as it sleeps belly up at night. The milk is belived to be medicinal and can be used for a variety of afflictions. The truth is these creatures are aggressive and unpredictable, and should not be provoked for any reason!

The goverment wants you to believe they aren't real, but there are many who believe. The evidence is mounting! Just check out more about the Jackalope Conspiracy and more on the jackalope email testimonials here.

Society's Burning Questions

Society's Burning Questions.
Sometimes questions are like that - burning laser beams of intensity that cut through the thin veil of the moronosphere. That sector of cyberspace which is home to the slack jawed troglodytes, knuckle draggers, and hopelessly reactionary among the world's netizens. And here they are.

1. If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?

Should Have Worn A Helmet

Remember: A helmet can't prevent an accident. All a helmet can do is protect an extremely thick skull from making a dull thud when striking the floor during a fall.

Anyway, the point was...Helmets good, floor bad. Check.

Cats v. Dogs - II

The eternal debate of cats v. dogs continues.

The cat's point of view;

1) We like to do what we want.
2) Despite what you say, we do listen to you when you shout.
3) Yes we are totally unpredictable, but so are humans.
4) We can cheer you up when you need it the most.
5) We love to play.
6) We don't take up much room on the duvet.
7) We don't expect you to cater to our every whim (that's a dogs rumor).
8) We don't hassle you to be taken for a walk.
9) We don't leave as much hair everywhere.
10) We don't cost as much as dogs to keep.

What is a Dog? (From the cat's point of view)

1) Dogs lie around all day, sprawled on the most comfortable piece of furniture in the house.
2) They can hear a can of food opening half a block away, but don't hear you when you're in the same room.
3) They can look dumb and lovable all at the same time.
4) They snap when they are not happy.
5) When you want to play, they want to play.
6) When you want to be alone, they want to play.
7) They beg and drool most the time.
8) They leave dog fur every where they go..
9) They leave their toys everywhere.
10) They try to give you a kiss and when they do, boy do they have bad breath.

11) A dog is a plaything for me, I can get them to chase me and then I can give them a roundhouse kick to the head.

The Sixth Dimension, The Invention of Cheese and the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

One of the more humorous things I find in life is people who claim to be "in the know" of things. Nothing says pretentious more than someone who acts like an expert on any given subject, especially on the internet.

It's not only pretentious. It's annoying. Anyone with a computer can incessantly ramble on about their beliefs and publish it nowadays (just look at me).

There are plenty of reasons why someone could be considered a professional in their field. But when that field is so unfounded and mysterious such as the paranormal or metaphysical - whether science may offer an explanation or not - is ridiculous.

Extraordinary claims! Astounding insights! I wanna see some ectoplasmic vomit then I'll truly believe.

Take for example this bloggers description of the sixth dimension.

Now, I'm sure there likely is a series of dimensions beyond our human comprehension and understanding. That being said, I don't think anyone's claims could be necessarily be construed for fact or truth. The mysterious universe is probably just that and to think that we might have all the answers is ludicrous.

I'm not saying that I don't believe that these things are possible. Our thoughts have a way of manifesting themselves into our physical realm. For instance, great inventions like electricity, the automobile, and cheese would not have been possible if someone hadn't thought to themselves, 'Why that's a great idea!'

The main point here is think it, believe it and it will happen. Maybe.

Everyone of course is entitled to their own brand of bigotry. We're all bigots to some extent about something. Regardless if that's right or if we agree with that or not.

So just because the religious norm in western culture and the mainstream beliefs of it's adherents may have effed up some of our fragile little psyches concerning new age or other mystical spiritual beliefs doesn't mean every person that has religious or spiritual beliefs (or horrors) and publicly expresses them has a screw loose.

But I tend to think anyone who makes claims that they found the truth through pure speculation just might be a total wingnut...especially if they are wearing tinfoil on their heads.

Who knows, maybe there is a millionth dimension and our spiritual doubles carry on in everyday life similar to our own, and they believe in Pastafarianism and the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

In closing, the slogan for the sixth dimension should be:

The sixth dimension.
It's cooler than the third dimension. Yeah!
It's like... the third dimension, only different.
It's the third dimension squared!

Talk about a mindfuck, huh?

Cats v. Dogs - I

Even thousands of years after the fact, there are still frequent arguments on cats versus dogs. They range from cruel and ignorant to bizarre and downright hilarious.

Against my better judgment, we now have a new cat (more on this later), and so far no incidents. Other than the usual territorial battles between her and our other cat. I do like cats as much as I do dogs. But the difference between cats and dogs is huge. Are dogs better than cats, or are cats better than dogs?

One picture can say it all.

It's Raining Fish, Frogs, Cat, Dogs & Pink Elephants Oh My!

Here's an interesting collection of well known paranormal cases in the states.


Even though I prefer the really creepy stories about the Mothman or the Jersey Devil, I liked this one in particular: Mysterious Falls from the Sky

It's raining fish & frogs, or cats 'n dogs, oh my!

Apparently it did rain frogs recently in Britain. Or everyone was drunk that day and just thought it was raining frogs. Come to think of it, why doesn't it ever rain pink elephants?

Dr. Phil Speaks on Spears, OJ and Meteorites


Dr. Phil McGraw responded to rumors Monday that he entered Britney Spears' hospital room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center uninvited.

In a statement on his website, the talk show host also addressed reports he would dedicate an entire show to Spears' personal dramas.

Dr. Phil's analysis?
"As was widely reported this weekend, at the request of concerned family members, I visited Britney Spears in the hospital. The details of that visit will, of course, remain private," he said in the statement.

Calling Spears' situation "too intense," McGraw added that he was scrapping plans for a special episode of his show devoted to the pop star's troubles.

"We had planned to tape a Dr. Phil Now show today, focusing not on the tabloid side of Britney’s latest problems, but instead on the very serious issues surrounding this case. Clearly, it is not just Britney's family struggling to find a way to protect adult children who cannot be ordered or compelled to seek help."

Added McGraw: "Britney and her family are in our prayers, and we ask that they be in yours."

Britney Spears has also done the impossible since her discharge early Saturday morning from Cedars-Sinai hospital: slipping out of her Beverly Hills home undetected despite the constant vigil of paparazzi and media outside.

And in typical Britney fashion she fled L.A. with a mystery man dubbed her newest beau, Finalpixx photographer Adnan Ghalib, just a few hours after her release, popped into the Daily Grill in Palm Desert around 10 a.m. Sunday. Is the paparazzi photographer setting her up? Maybe. Is she setting him up? Maybe.

But to Dr. Phil and the Krap staff, Adnan kinda does resemble someone else who has been in a bit of trouble lately.

Dr. Phil noted in other news a meteorite was ticketed for landing in a no-parking zone. He plans on intervening, "What was the meter maid thinking, more importantly, what was the meteorite thinking?!", exclaimed Dr. Phil.

Just goes to show you, nothing sedates a soul... or rock, and stifles common sense quite like words of wisdom by Dr. Phil.

Holiday Anger Management - Part 3

Happy New Year! And happy house cleaning after it's trashed with wine, puke, garbage, broken household items and other party favors.

A New Years Eve hostess hounds her house party trashers.
When the New Year's Eve carnage was over, Tracie Egan was left with wine on her walls, vomit on her walk-out roof, broken possessions and a $450 cleaning bill.

A hole was punched in her apartment wall, the shower curtain ripped from its rod, her prized Dolly Parton poster sprayed with booze and, most vulgarly, a tampon left on the sofa like an unwanted party favor.

Forget resolutions. For this bitter 28-year-old hostess, it's all about reparations.

Britney Hauled Off In Ambulance, Y'all

Another dramatic episode in the Spears vs. Federline custody debacle.
It's another great start to a new year as it appears Britney has finally hit rock bottom, Britney Spears was placed on lockdown for a mental evaluation Friday after the pop star locked herself in a room with one of her children at her L.A. home and refused to hand him over to ex-husband Kevin Federline.

Police cars, ambulances and firetrucks with sirens blazing, helicopters hovering above — it was a scene straight out of a Hollywood blockbuster Thursday night as Britney Spears and her infant hid from the authorities inside her Beverly Hills home.

"It looked like a hostage situation," one witness was quoted at the time.

So how did this all happen? Let's retrace her steps!

Image Hosted by

11:32 a.m.: Britney, in a bright fuschia halter dress and heels, arrives over 90 minutes late to her final chance to give a court-ordered deposition in her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline. She is only able to be deposed for approximately 14 minutes.

12:20 p.m.: Brit arrives back home at her gated community, The Summit. Her sons are there for their scheduled visit, as is a court-appointed monitor.

7 p.m.: K-Fed's security team arrives to pick up boys Sean Preston and Jayden James and bring them back to their father's house. When there is a delay in releasing the boys, Britney's assistant, Carla, makes excuses for the pop star. However, it soon becomes clear that there is a problem.

At some point, 2-year-old Sean Preston is removed from the house, leaving only little Jayden inside with his mother.

8 p.m.: The police are notified of a custodial situation at Britney's house and officers are dispatched to The Summit. But when they arrive, they find that the court-appointed monitor, who has been locked out of the house, is not in possession of the paperwork required to allow them to enter Britney's house.

9:20 p.m.: K-Fed's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan arrives at The Summit with the required paperwork. He and five police cars enter the gated community and drive up to Britney's house.

10:30 p.m.: More than a dozen police officers, as well as two ambulances and a handful of fire rescue trucks are now on the scene. Sometime before 11 p.m., Britney's cousin Alli and Brit's assistant Carla leave the house, leaving Brit alone with Jayden James.

11:45 p.m.: Britney is taken out of her home strapped to a gurney and placed into an ambulance, which is escorted by 13 police cars with sirens blaring to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, arriving at approximately 12:30 a.m. Jayden is brought to the hospital in a separate vehicle.

"We are concerned about her mental state and believe she may be under the influence," an LAPD officer revealed to the press at the time of Brit's arrival at Cedars-Sinai.

Britney, who had been sobbing when taken from her home, appeared distant and erratic as she was escorted out of the ambulance and into the hospital. "Her eyes were like pinholes, and she was strapped to the gurney," another witness recalled.

Already waiting at the hospital's emergency room is K-Fed and his lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan obviously in shock not sure as to what had transpired and lead up to this.

Sources have stated that Britney takes prescription medication to treat a bipolar disorder. This source who was a companion explains that if the singer misses her hourly dosage of medication the result is severe anxiety.

Our source presumes that Thursday’s hectic schedule and at least one missed dosage may have contributed to that night’s occurrence.

Life & Style is reporting that early police reports about Britney being under the influence when being taken to Cedars Sinai are false - all tests came back negative!

“Her blood test just came back, and, thank God, it was clean. There are no traces of drugs or alcohol of any kind,” a source close to Britney's family told the mag.

Could Britney's clean slate lend credibility to her claim that she missed her hourly meds? After all, if she'd taken her anti-anxiety pills as scheduled, they'd show up in the test, right?

No charges have been filed as of yet. "We aren't charging her with anything at this time," LAPD officer HARDING says. "She is at the [hospital] for her own health and welfare."

Britney's visitation rights "have been suspended pending further order of the court," says Commissioner Scott Gordon. This will be in effect until January 14th when a hearing will then determine what happens next.

Do you think Britney is healthy enough to parent her own two children?
And also, does she truly need help or is she the victim of an overly aggressive legal team... or both?

Currently Britney is sedated and resting in the psychiatric unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. A family insider was quoted as saying that the singer requested that no visitors be admitted and her doctors agreed.

I also agree, Britney's best interest seems to be to stay out of the spotlight for awhile, get some rest and a bit of therapy. Then who knows? Personally I think her career is over as well as her ability to win a custody battle at this point.

By SANDY COHEN, AP Entertainment Writer Fri Jan 4, 6:26 PM ET
LOS ANGELES - A court commissioner gave sole physical and legal custody of Britney Spears' two little boys Friday to ex-husband Kevin Federline and suspended the troubled pop star's visitation rights.

Commissioner Scott Gordon issued a ruling the day after Spears was hauled away from her home by paramedics; police had to intervene when she refused to return the children to Federline after a court-monitored visit.

Gordon ordered another hearing to be held Jan. 14.

Federline had previously been awarded temporary custody of 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James because Spears has defied court orders, resulting in limitations on her visitation.

"I'm not happy about any of these events," Federline attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan said when he left a closed-door emergency hearing Friday afternoon. "There's no winners here."

Federline was not in court for the hearing, Kaplan said.

The attorney had said he did not expect the ruling to be released until Monday, but it was issued shortly after the hearing concluded.

by Rob Woollard AFP writer Fri Jan 4, 2:02 PM ET
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Britney Spears was being evaluated at a Los Angeles hospital early Friday after being taken from her home by paramedics following the latest twist to the troubled pop star's custody battle.

Spears was wheeled out of her home on a stretcher late Thursday following a stand-off which began when she reportedly refused to release her two children, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1 to ex-husband Kevin Federline's bodyguard.

Video footage of the incident shown on celebrity news websites and television reports showed Spears alternately smiling and looking distraught as she was lifted into an ambulance.

Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Jason Lee said Spears was being detained and evaluated in hospital because officers had found her under the influence of an unknown substance.

Lee said police had been called to Spears' home at 8 pm Thursday (0400 GMT Friday) to resolve a custody dispute. and reported that the drama began when Spears failed to hand her two children over as arranged under a court-ordered custody agreement with Federline.

At around 10:30 pm paramedics and an ambulance arrived and shortly afterwards the two children were turned over to Federline after police reviewed court documents, Lee said.

Police could not confirm celebrity news website reports that Spears' youngest son Jayden James had also been taken to the hospital, Lee adding only that there were "no reportable injuries to anyone involved."

People magazine reported on its website that Spears had been placed under a 72-hour lock down for evaluation at Cedars Sinai known as a "5150".

Spears, one of the most successful pop stars of her generation, has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle with Federline ever since the couple separated in late 2006.

Lawyers for Spears and Federline held a court hearing early Friday and were due to return before a judge later. Reports speculated Federline's lawyers will seek to have Spears' access to the children curtailed.

A judge limited the pop star's access to her children in October after she failed to submit to random drug testing as demanded at an earlier hearing where the court ruled Spears was a "habitual and continuous" drug user."

Earlier Thursday Spears began a court-ordered deposition in the custody case after missing several appointments to do so, but appeared for questioning by Federline's lawyer so late that it lasted only 13 minutes, USmagazine reported.

The day before, her lawyers had requested to leave her case, citing "a breakdown in communications" with Spears that made "further representation of her interests impossible."

The court-room drama rumbled throughout a difficult year for Spears that saw her rarely out of the tabloid headlines. She was repeatedly photographed in nightspots wearing no underwear and was also captured bizarrely shaving her head in a hair salon and attacking a photographer's car with an umbrella. Those episodes were followed by a stint in a rehabilitation treatment center.

In September Spears attempted to resurrect her career but suffered a critical savaging after a live performance at the Video Music Awards.

Nevertheless the release of her first album in four years in October, "Blackout," offered Spears some encouragement with critics broadly hailing the work as a success.

But Spears' family was back in the headlines again last month when it emerged that the singer's 16-year-old sister, the star of a popular US television children's show, was pregnant.

Spears shot to superstardom in late 1998, with her smash-hit debut album "Baby One More Time" which she followed with another chart-topping success the following year, "Oops! ... I Did It Again."

According to Time magazine, Spears has sold over 76 million records worldwide, and her 31 million albums sold in the United States make her the eighth best-selling female artist in US music history.
