notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Note to Self:

Don't ever fuck with The Onion.

Earlier this week, Bush Administration lawyers contacted the staff of The Onion and demanded that they stop displaying the presidential seal on their web site because, in the words of White House Spokesman Trent Duffy, "[i]t's important that the seal or any White House insignia not be used inappropriately." Apparently, even with indictments coming down the pike, approval ratings in the toilet, and of course the ongoing War On TerrorTM the Bush Administration doesn't have more pressing issues to address.

At any rate, not only is The Onion continuing to display the seal, but they've recently posted this special Onion Weekender cover.
