Not a lot to report today, so instead here's my favorite submissions about Obama being on Mythbusters in December:

- Not bad for a couple of guys who's idea for a TV show consisted of strapping a couple of rockets to a Chevy

- President Obama to appear on the Dec. 8 episode of "MythBusters." Topics to be covered include the stimulus and ObamaCare

- Obama to appear on Mythbusters, refute being a Kenyan Muslim atheist socialist Marxist space lizard

- President Obama tries to come up with ways to cut military spending, contacts Mythbusters

- Noted scientist PRESIDENT OBAMA to appear on "Mythbusters", to test out the myth of Archimedes' fabled solar ray that is said to have destroyed a Roman fleet. If successful, this solar weapon will be deployed in the 2012 election

And the one we went with:

- Desperately courting the pro-Kari Byron and/or geek vote, Obama to appear on an episode of "Mythbusters". Show will determine if Archimedes using a giant magnifying glasses could forge a birth certificate


Yes, they're all funny, that's why it's so hard to pick one.

Save it for a write-in for HotY. I actually thought the Bobby Cox headline would make it as well. I'll bookmark that for HotY.

This is so scandalous.

No, what would be funny is if Cracked.com did a list of "top 5 troll dens (excepting 4chan)" and Fark was #1. Of course, in reality that would go to Yahoo Answers.
