This links have been in the queue for a while, so check these out:

1) The Onion’s Top 10 Stories of 2005 – Number 9 is my favorite.

2) Governor Lynn Swann? – I think the former Steeler WR wanted to make sure that he bested Lisa Guerrero for the “Dirtiest Career After Being an ABC Sports Sideline Reporter” Award.

3) Mama Said Knock You Out – I’m just waiting to hear that the Philly fan Clinton Portis’ mama decked out on Sunday was actually Donovan McNabb’s mama.  That would be a Clio-worthy Chunky Soup commercial.

And last but certainly not least…

5) Chuck Norris Phenomenon“Chuck Norris isn’t hung like a horse.  Horses are hung like Chuck Norris.”  Here’s a timely examination of the resurgent interest in the great Chuck Norris.  If you haven’t received the ubiquitous “Chuck Norris – The Facts” email, here it is.
