Meanwhile, I couldn't let a tame bit of humor like the post below this one be the only thing I posted today. What if someone actually read this blog? So, via Americablog, I howled when I read this excerpt from Dan Savage's sex advice column:

Q. If they ever put language in the U.S. Constitution forcing gay guys to marry women, who would get to be the lucky Mrs. Savage? -- JUST CURIOUS
A. Wonkette, of course, as she's the only woman I know who likes to talk about ass-fucking as much as I do (wonkette.com). If Wonkette won't have me, then I'd pop the question to Mary Cheney, Vice President Dick Cheney's lesbo daughter. Mary worked for the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2000, doing outreach to gay and lesbian voters - effective outreach, apparently, as almost 25 percent of gay and lesbian voters went for Bush. (You dumb fucks!) Mary's working for her dad again this year, despite the fact that her dad and her dad's boss want to write anti-gay bigotry into the U.S. Constitution. As Mary's husband, I would do all I could to make her absolutely miserable. I wouldn't beat her (I reserve that for people I like), but I would pee on the toilet seat every morning, fart under the covers every night, and remind her at every opportunity that she's the most despised American lesbian since Mamie Eisenhower.

Probably only a genealogy geek like myself would appreciate this, but I think this is the Best. Census. Enumerator. Comment. Ever. It is the humor note in the most recent Rootsweb Review newsletter:

Several years ago, I was reading page 124 of the 1920 census of Mountain
Township, McCurtain County, Oklahoma and came upon the following note:

"Here ends the enumeration of District 148 comprising ranges 25, 26,
and all of 27 east, inside the Oklahoma boundary of Townships 3 and 4
South in McCurtain County, Oklahoma, and believe me, with its
mountains and valleys, its rivers, creeks and branches, it's some
district, all right. I have been waterbound, and now I'm hidebound,
but I have listed every galoot there is in it."
