“Sears portrait studio backdrop?!?”

Now Jon, that’s the 18th green at Teton Pines Country Club, Dick’s backyard.

At such a critical moment in the life of our nation, let’s send these two great patriots to Iraq. I hear the caddis hatch on the Tigris is exquisite this year.

Daily Show investigates 2-headed trout

By Jim Stanford on June 15, 2012

Comments: 14 Comments

A photo that emerged last winter of a 2-headed trout poisoned by phosphate mining near a Snake River tributary drew the attention of the N.Y. Times, Gizmodo and other major media outlets.

Naturally, the Daily Show sent ace reporter Aasif Mandvi to investigate.

J.R. Simplot Co., which operates the Smoky Canyon Mine in eastern Idaho to make fertilizer, was not amused.

Again, props to Marv Hoyt of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition for blowing the whistle on the agribusiness giant poisoning our streams with selenium.

Faux News: stupid or evil?

By Jim Stanford on August 24, 2010

Comments: 18 Comments

Jon Stewart and The Daily Show continue to roast the “Ground Zero mosque” furor in hilarious fashion.

At the center of Rupert Murdoch’s insidious web of terror funding is his media partner, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.

Prince Alwaleed, you’ll recall, was the Saudi royal who had Jackson Hole abuzz with his eccentric and extravagant stay at Four Seasons in 2004, replete with snowboarding dwarves (later tossed around for the entourage’s amusement).

The prince has been an investor in Four Seasons, as well as Citigroup, Murdoch’s NewsCorp. and Apple. His Kingdom Foundation sponsors no doubt hundreds of humanitarian and educational initiatives, in addition to the proposed Park51 project — which makes the Fox fearmongering so ridiculous.

I’m with Wyatt: Evil.

Last night “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart went into the dragon’s den and confronted Faux News talking head Bill O’Reilly.

Stewart showed no fear as he intellectually jousted the fire-breathing O’Reilly, in the first part of a two-night interview.

Because we would never tune in Faux News, here are YouTube clips of the exchange. Catch round two later tonight on Gawker.

Strong Island eyes secession, war with Wyoming

Ah, the homeland.

The guy on the left obviously has never been to a “gun show” in Wyoming, where they carry real guns. Lots of ‘em.

This clears up any doubt as to why this native Strong Islander lives in Wyoming.
