I recently received a coupon to get any drink I wanted at Starbucks. They do this if something goes awry with a previous experience as a nice gesture.
I decided to use the coupon for an experiment: What is the most expensive drink I can order?
In this clip from civil rights activist Petey Greene’s Washington DC television program in the Spring of 1982, Greene explains how to eat watermelon. Utterly bizarre. Also, pointers on eating corn and fried chicken.

Peter Sellers doing his version of Laurence Olivier’s version of “Now is the winter of our discontent” through The Beatles’ “A hard day’s night” version. The TV program was 1964 “Music of Lennon and McCartney”.
Ron Paul wins.
After a quick laugh, I realized that Craig walks a fine line between two worlds. Actually, he struts across that line. He is an Internet sensation. One of the first real Internet gurus, yet he isn’t a multi-millionaire, he hasn’t retired to the Bahamas. For all intents and purposes he lives a normal life – he even works as a customer service representative for Craigslist.
All this combines to make Craig one of the more interesting people online today. And here is an exclusive interview for Broowaha.
Jessica (the future Mrs. Claus) sings “My World Is Beginning Today.” You can definitely detect some ’70s psychedelic influences there.
Well, actually by the Beatnix.
According to the theologians, God, the Father of us all, wrote a letter to his children. The children have always differed somewhat as to the meaning of this letter. In consequence of these honest differences, these brothers began to cut out each other’s hearts. In every land, where this letter from God has been read, the children to whom and for whom it was written have been filled with hatred and malice. They have imprisoned and murdered each other, and the wives and children of each other. In the name of God every possible crime has been committed, every conceivable outrage has been perpetrated. Brave men, tender and loving women, beautiful girls, and prattling babes have been exterminated in the name of Jesus Christ. For more than fifty generations the church has carried the black flag. Her vengeance has been measured only by her power. During all these years of infamy no heretic has ever been forgiven. With the heart of a fiend she has hated; with the clutch of avarice she has grasped; with the jaws of a dragon she has devoured; pitiless as famine, merciless as fire, with the conscience of a serpent: such is the history of the Church of God.
