Bush and Blair Singing together

My love,
there is only you in my life
The only thing that is bright.
My first love
You are every breath that I take
You are every step I make
And I, I want to share All my love with you
No one else will do.
And your eyes they tell me how much you care!

Stars


I need a ticket on the 4:50 flight to Baltimore.
It leaves in about 35 minutes. If you let me check, I know that flight is very full.
Ok, one seat left.
That’ll be two thousand one hundred and forty-five dollars and twenty cents.
There’s forty and twelve hundred dollars on this one and
five hundred dollars on that one and put the rest on that one.
Movies make us. And you see them on stars.

Naomi


Ok, so today we are going to talk about our anger.
We have a new member.
My name is Naomi.
Ok, Naomi, ok, vocalize the anger.
But,now sit down in your chair. Down, Naomi.
Now sit your butt down.
Sit your skinny butt down.

Energizer

 

Since when do I use Energizer? Since I discovered that I am immortal. Being immortal has a big advantage: You last a long time. And a great disadvantage: Everything else seems to last  very little. That’s why I want to keep memories of everything And that’s why I use Energizer e2 [e-squared] Lithium in my camera, So I can immortalize many  more moments. Because in the end, nothing lasts as long as I do. Well, ok, almost nothing.

(Thank you, Mister) Reallocate your entire investment portfolio with eTrade and get free independent research. Tell your expensive broker where to go. All it takes is one finger. It’s easy, it’s extraordinary, it’s eTrade

 

Experience

If you have it, you don’t need it. If you need it, you don’t have it. If you have it, you need more of it. If you have more of it, you don’t need less of it. You need it to get, and you certainly need it to get more of it. But if you don’t already have any of it to begin with, you can’t get any of it to get started, which means you really have no idea how to get it in the first place, do you? You can share it, sure. You can even stockpile it, if you’d like. But you can’t fake it. Wanting it, needing it, wishing for it. The point is: if you’ve never had any of it, ever, people just seem to know.

BUSH on Global Warming

And now a special address from the President of the United States on Global Warming.

Hallo America, it’s me here, your president, your commander in chief of the world.

And I am here at my ranch here in Crawford, Texas, just taking a little R and R [running and relaxation] , you know relaxing and growing out my soul patch. Playing a little Frisbee golf with Condy Rice and Dick Cheney. Having a good time, but still keeping my eye on the ball.
And there is an issue that has come to my attention. The issue of the so called global warmings, that are happening on our planet. For centuries the rays of the sun have warmed the surface of our earth’s crust. And, apparently, those rays are intensifying in such a way that it is increasing lava flows. (Cut. I am not going to lie here, I don’t know what the hell I am talking about. )

Global warning is an issue that my administration is, is very concerned about. Deeply, deeply in a deep kind of concerned way. It’s ..I don’t.. I start my day and I think about the warming of the globe and how we can get it warmer. (Cut) Rest assured that the issue of global warming is something that my administration takes very seriously.
(Not right now, Condy, we’ll play later). I am sure by know you have all heard what liberal scientists are trying to say, it seems that liberals and godless tax raisers are trying to make me look bad by using such things as facts and scientific data.
(Cut, Mr. President you can’t say they are using facts. Right. Facts are real, you know, they are not disputed. How do you know that. What kind of book is this? Why didn’t you tell me it was a pop-up book. Those things scare the crap out of me. I don’t think that is the kind of science book we are looking for, we are talking about global warming. What kind of science book would you suggest. Well there is a lot of books… One filled with facts, maybe? Yes, I bet you would like that).

When you think back to Biblical times, when Adam and Eve talked to that snake, 6000 years ago, when the world was created. It was hot back then too, why do you think Adam and Eve were naked. Do you see what I am saying? I mean, I am not making that stuff up. You didn’t hear Adam and Eve running around talking about emission standards or hybrid cars. In fact Adam and Eve drove an Excursion. (Cut) Let’s talk about something that really matters, like keeping steroids out of T-Ball. I think the polar ice caps suck. Who cares about having a place where a bunch of penguins can have an orgy. (Cut) Global warming, don’t worry about it. Where we have got a beat on this thing? We are going to.., yeah, we just need to get nature to cooperate with us. We don’t need to listen to nature, nature needs to listen to us.
(Cut!) Mr. President you asked me to tell you when the Rangers’ game is on, it is on right now. It better not be past…

We now return to your regularly scheduled program.)

Corelle

That’s it. It’s perfect.

To show off the latest designs from Corelle, we hired these international fashion models.

And to demonstrate Corelle is still as durable as ever, we greased the runway.

Corelle, every style has its strength.

 

Cut

So, how is your love life? Great! I am dating a flight attendant. She is blond. Oh, but that’s wonderful, honey. When do we get to meet her? Well, she travels a lot. What about you? How is your backache?

Cut, the absolute premix!

Milk

Drink your milk, kids. I don’t want milk. Milk is for babies. Yea, babies. Oh, yea? Well, I happen to know that milk helps to build strong bones. So, drink up. Well, Mr. Miller told me, he never drinks milk. Look at him! Hey, kids. Oh, that’s not good Got Milk

Miller Light

More Americans are choosing the great taste of Miller Light. 2.5 million in just the last year. Imagine 2.5 million new Miller Light drinkers joined together across this great nation, from coast to coast, over the hills and prairies, across bare wasteland, united by great taste. That’s good air. Through major metropolitan areas, across rivers and streams. Through the mountains. I can’t feel my feet. Standing side by side, from sea to shining sea.

But, after doing the maths, we found that 2.5 million people, though impressive only gets us half way, finding us somewhere in the Mid West. But with more Americans choosing Miller Light every day, you can almost smell the ocean from here. A great revolution is calling. Pick up the phone!

Oh I don’t surf, I  just carry the board around, that helps with the chicks [the girls] Oh, you know, suck in that gut [keep your stomach in] might help a bit too. Yes.. Oh I just noticed some topless girls checking me out, so I’ll catch you around. Refreshing
