Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson is on fire


Since he won the Pulitzer Prize earlier this year, it's as if he's taken his commentary to a whole new level.

Witness today's spectacular channelling of Philip K. Dick, in his column headlined "The Berserk 'Birthers'": "'They' diabolically planted these birth announcements 48 years ago, establishing a false record, so that a chosen infant who was actually born in some foreign land — Kenya? Indonesia? Manchuria? — could be groomed, perhaps programmed, and someday installed in the Oval Office."

Wonderful stuff.

I think there's a 99.9% chance Obama's already called Robinson to tell him how much he liked the piece.

Who knows, maybe he'll call me.

Wouldn't that be something, the president a bookofjoe fan?

Mona Lisa Coffee [Overdrive]

4,000 cups of coffee were employed to bring into being this signature drink array.

"Lattes, long blacks and flat whites were used to make this masterpiece."

Oh, yeah, huh — maybe you don't speak Aussie.

"The sculpture was created to launch the Rocks Aroma Festival. Now in its 12th year, the Aroma Festival is Australia's biggest coffee festival with more than 100 roasters and stalls."

'How Not to Act Old' — Who's gonna be in the movie?


If they get the right director for the film adaptation of Pamela Redmond Satran's new book (above), the biggest stars in the world will work for scale for the chance to have a blast making this picture.

Note to director: I'm available.

Yo, joe — you're confused... but then, what's new?

Among Satran's 185 tips:

• Don't count out exact change

• Don't yell into the cellphone

• Don't be named Pam, Barbara, Dick, Donald, Mary or Judy

• Don't type on your smartphone with your index finger (use your thumbs)

• Don't say "you're welcome" ("no problem" is word)

• Don't wear a watch
