So being raised by one's grandparents can lead to anti-social behavior or alternately to becoming president.

Donny was a good bowler, and a good man. He was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors... and bowling, and as a surfer he explored the beaches of Southern California, from La Jolla to Leo Carrillo and... up to... Pismo. He died, like so many young men of his generation, he died before his time. In your wisdom, Lord, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young men at Khe Sanh, at Langdok, at Hill 364. These young men gave their lives. And so would Donny. Donny, who loved bowling. And so, Theodore Donald Karabotsos, in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been, we commit your final mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, which you loved so well. Good night, sweet prince.

Grandma. Grandma liked to bowl.

To bad she didn't teach BO. Remember when he bowled a 37? Not throwing rocks that night.
 
2008-12-24 12:26:18 PM  
Has anyone examined the ashes to make sure they are his grandmothers? I'm convinced her death was an election stunt.

She's probably hiding out in a nice mansion in Kenyapolis.

Fun Fact:

The place where they dumped the ashes in the movie is called 'Sunken City', it is in the San Pedro area of Los Angeles.

Lol, I was going to say "Did he manage to scrape out the ashes from beneath the bus?"

Oh, c'mon. It's funny.

Obama says he could no more disown Wright any more then he could disown his own grandmother.

Then he disowned Wright

They should check the death certificate to make sure that she was a US-dead citizen.

To all my fellow Farkers

We've spent the year tearing each other apart
We've spent our time speaking from the heart

We've moved in circles with many jerks
We've laughed at all of Bevet's quirks.

It's been a circus of much politico hashing
It's been a many a night of much a queer bashing

We've throttled the Christians in relentless fashion
We've ballyhooed the Muslims as an evil bastion

We've tormented and teased with literary ease
We've had many a laugh at boobies bony knees

All said and done, we are sliced from the same loaf of bread
So don't let your fine debating prowess go to your head

Our needs are the same on this fast spinning ball
Piece of mind and comfort for one and for all

So on this eve so sacred for so many no matter the flavor
Remember my beloved Farkers, it's living we should savor

Seasons Greetings to each and everyone of you.
