The Republican party often will expess the importance about bringing democracy to totalitarian governments, yet they will adamantly insist that the U.S. is a republic and not a democracy.
It's fun with words time!

A Republican just boils down to this - your national leader is not called a king or queen.

So the US is a Republic. So was Stalinist Russia. So is the People's Republic of China. So is President Mahmoud Ahm-a-dinnerjacket of Iran.

Now King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia could not claim his country is a Republic.

The UK is sort of a quasi-republic. Technically, I suppose the Queen could veto a Parliament bill, but that would quickly lead to the Queen being tossed out on her butt.

Labels in politics tend to be confusing if you look beyond the perjorative. Example - Look at that Liberal there riding in the front of the bus! They think they own the world!

You mean like in Ed Johnson's "Letter to the President" skit?

"And Mr. President, the ban on smoking on planes is a threat to airline security. Hell, if someone wants a cigarette bad enough, they'd hijack a plane."

He also mentioned something about smoking and criminals. "You see, we smokers can't run."

Oh, I heard of a guy who was told he couldn't smoke in a hospital, but they would gladly give him a patch. He asked if the patch came in menthol.

Who's the first person to eat a snail?

I can only come to two conclusions as to why they'd do that:

A) Desperately hungry and all the trees nearby had their bark eaten.

B) A "Hold my goblet of wine and watch this" type dare.

Why is a "W" called a "double U"?

Shouldn't it be called a "double V"??

Why is Y sometimes a vowel?

It needs to make up its mind and take a vow of commitment to be a vowel.

I've wandered into some dark (and really traumatizing) parts of the internet in days of yore.

That is for real. One of the first things I stumbled into when I first started using the net was an "body object insertion list." It was bad reading where people put light bulbs and coke bottles. Oh, and the odd perfume bottle that got there because someone "slipped and fell on it in the shower." Sure. But that is what they told their doctor.

Since there is a Virgin Mobile, why not a Just F**ked Mobile?

Since there is a Fidelity Bank, why not a bank for those who cheat on their spouses?

And why do garbage cans have "Thank You" on the lid? Thank you for what? Thank you for missing the garbage can? Thank you for eating a grease-burger?

Think about how you pronounce these words:

best, crest

Now these:

beasts, feasts

Now what about breasts?

Who cares how it's spelled or pronounced? Boobies! Yay!

Think of the words that seem to have prefixes but make no sense if you change the prefixes or remove them.

Disgruntled, but no such thing as gruntled.

Upset, but there is no downset.

Abuse, but no buse

Perverts, but no preverts nor postverts

Penal system, but no anal system, not officially.
