Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming outpouring of support yesterday when I (half-)jokingly threatened to pull the plug on my poorly read and largely anonymous personal blog. Your calls, faxes, and singing telegram(s) were enough to convince me to keep going.

A special thank you goes out to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who sent a fine '54 Haut Medoc as a bribe to keep blogging. Who knew he was a reader?

Since the people demand it, I will now provide some jokes.

No jury in the world would convict. A man in Ohio faces a drunk driving charge after he crashed his motorized bar stool (right). When police responded to the accident, Kile Wygle, 28, allegedly told them he'd had 15 beers, which is bragable. He's pleaded not guilty and requested a jury trial.

He'll coach the Chiefs next. The NaturalBlog has a new hero, and it's Michael Kinahan, the Massachusetts midget girls soccer coach who was fired for demanding his players have the "gritty determination of journeymen who bring their lunch pail to work every week, chase every ball and dig in corners like a Michael Vick pit bull." Kinahan rubbed parents the wrong way with his preseason email, which included the line "[W]hile blood doping and HGH use is frowned upon, there is no testing policy."

I highly recommend that everyone click on the link for the soccer coach story, where the Ledger has kindly reprinted the coach's e-mail in full. Hilarious! Now that he has some spare time on his hands, perhaps NattyB should ask him to freelance on those days when he feels like mailing it in.
