:: From [info]zevshir, this gem of an April Fools' joke:

This is too funny.
The PA Wing website (www.pawingcap.com) has been updated for April Fool's Day. Here's a sample:

Notice of Proposed Regulation
Wednesday, 01 Apr 2009, by JColgan

Part 2, Section 972 (a) 1 (c)

Section I
No CAP member, or person or persons acting on the direction or suggestion or supervision of a CAP member, may try, or attempt to try, or make attempt to try to comprehend or understand any or all, in whole or in part, of the herin mentioned Regulation, except as authorized by the National Commander or an agent appointed by, or inspected by the National Commander.

Section II
If a CAP member or any group of members becomes aware of or realizes, or detects, or discovers, finds that he/she, or they are understanding or have been beginning to understand the Regulations, they must immediately, within three (3) days, notify, in writing, in triplicate, the National Legal Officer using CAPF 129a, Notice of Impending Comprehension.

Section III
Upon receipt of the above-mentioned notice of impending comprehension, the National Legal Officer shall immediately rewrite the Regulation that is in imminent danger of being understood. Such rewriting shall be done in such a manner to eliminate any further hazard of comprehension.

Section IV
The National Commander may, at his/her discretion, require the offending CAP member or members to attend remedial instruction on Regulations until such time that the CAP member or members is too confused to be capable of understanding anything.

:: This awesome, awesome article, found via a link from [info]rahmbamarama: The Unitarian Jihad For the win:

We are Unitarian Jihad. We are everywhere. We have not been born again, nor have we sworn a blood oath. We do not think that God cares what we read, what we eat or whom we sleep with. Brother Neutron Bomb of Serenity notes for the record that he does not have a moral code but is nevertheless a good person, and Unexalted Leader Garrote of Forgiveness stipulates that Brother Neutron Bomb of Serenity is a good person, and this is to be reflected in the minutes.

And some more win:

Brother Gatling Gun of Patience notes that he's pretty sure the world is out to get him because everyone laughs when he says he is a Unitarian. There were murmurs of assent around the room, and someone suggested that we buy some Congress members and really stick it to the Baptists. But this was deemed against Revolutionary Principles, and Brother Gatling Gun of Patience was remanded to the Sunday Flowers and Banners committee.

People of the United States! We are Unitarian Jihad! We can strike without warning. Pockets of reasonableness and harmony will appear as if from nowhere! Nice people will run the government again! There will be coffee and cookies in the Gandhi Room after the revolution.

:: From Fizzy via Gtalk, Guantanamo and the mosue that roared (from the BBC) O SNAP.

But perhaps the new administration has not yet caught up on the niceties of what powers the mother country retains over these "overseas territories". It is security, defence and foreign policy, if they ever ask.

Teens who haven't abandoned the shopping mall altogether are buying their clothes at stores like American Eagle and Aeropostale, which are increasingly positioning themselves as budget-friendly. Both stores are currently pushing promotions online, like buy-one, get-one free deals. Check out Abercrombie's Web site, though, and while you won't find any such online promotions on the latest season's items, you will find (warning!) a model with his hand down his pants.
