Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

All Just Bricks

Is this a great country, or what? Penn and Teller, in their Showtime series Bullshit!, get paid large sums of money to make fun of people and their silly ideas.

In a recent episode, they investigated the current furor over illegal immigration.

Using their classic sense of irony, Penn and Teller hired a crew of six illegal aliens to build a 12 length of fence. This fence was as close in design as they could get to the 700 miles of fencing currently being planned along the U.S.-Mexican border.

Well, it took the crew of six a full eight hours to build this section of fence. Then, the crew was divided into three pairs. One pair went over the fence, one went under, and one went through the fence. In about three minutes. The pair that went through was fastest, but the others weren't far behind.

A graphic example of what a colossal waste of money this fence is going to be.
