scotchcrotch: OBAMA HATES GUIDOS.

Lemme finish, lemme finish. Katrina I got mad props for you but Sandy is the greatest hurricane of all time! All time!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to eat cheerios out of Kim's butthole and upload the video.

12349876: jbuist: queezyweezel: When I say Usain, you say Shady.

/my name is what?

Usain Bolt is Jamaican, not Kenyan.

Usain Bolt is also a sprinter, not a long distance runner. Even the Europeans do better than Africa in sprinting. 0 medals for Africa in the 400m and less in 2012.


Put a flat screen TV in their hands and watch them sprint for the gold!

At first I thought, "How dare they hold the race while they're still pulling bodies out of the East River?" Then I thought, they do that pretty much every other Wednesday, so who's to notice.

Give PowerThirst to your babies, and they'll be good at SPORTS.
It'll make your babies run ABNORMALLY FAST.
They'll run as fast as KENYANS.
People will watch them running, and think they're KENYANS.
They'll race as fast as KENYANS against actual KENYANS,
and it'll be a tie, and they'll get deported back to KENYA.

jayhawk88: Not many people will biatch I'm sure, as they were planning on spending that money anyway and they're still in New Yorks and can sightsee or whatever, but waiting until now to cancel is very shady.

I hope they don't cancel the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade because of Sandy. I mean, they didn't even suspend it less than two months after 9-11.

pissedoffmick: Max Awesome: Good.

Does this mean the race organizers are going to donate all that bottled water that the runners were planning to dump on their heads to the poor New Yorkers who have been without food/water/shelter since Monday?

Yes From CNN: "The group behind the New York City Marathon - which was supposed to happen Sunday but was canceled today - will donate supplies to storm relief efforts, the New York City mayor's office says."


Line all the storm victims up for their complimentary bottle of water, and an oxygenated blood transfusion.

Now he'll rant about it being cancelled. What else would you expect?

I'm pretty sure that's the pundit version of dividing by zero.


No no no.. It's easy, he'll just say that Bloomberg purposely waited until all the participants were there so that he could take all their money and then send them on their way. Without their 48oz sodas too.
