Papadopoulos Ousted!!! February 17, 2008

Posted by Michael in Politics.

NICOSIA, Cyprus – President Tassos Papadopoulos was eliminated Sunday from Cyprus’ presidential runoff in a major surprise after a cliffhanger election that saw three candidates neck-and-neck until the last minute.

Why, you may ask, should you be concerned about political turmoil in Cyprus?

You shouldn’t. I only brought it up because Papadopoulos is a hilarious name. Just try to say it real fast without smiling.

You’re cracking me up.

One time we were on a cruise ship and the captain was Greek and had a huge nose. We called him “Captain Schnazzopolis”.

2. Mrs. Peel - February 17, 2008

“Outsted”?

What was Jesse’s last name on Full House? I think it was Papadopolis or something similar.

3. cranky - February 17, 2008

Cyprus. Summer of 1974. Ah, good times.

4. Michael - February 17, 2008

Thanks, Mrs. Peel. It’s so easy for me to forget proofreading the header.

5. Mrs. Peel - February 17, 2008

Me too. Fortunately, my blog is low-traffic, so I usually catch my typos before anyone else sees them.

I just looked it up, and Jesse’s last name was Katsopolis.

Cretins.

Cretons.

Lemme think.

Bang-a-drum.

12. Bart - February 17, 2008

What is this, Pictionary?

Remember when WP told us he loved to play Madlibs?

1) I haven’t got a clue on what madlibs are. (someday i’ll type it into my search engine and find out)

2) Did you play madlibs at the IBSBP?

13. Bart - February 17, 2008

BTW, Isn’t Cyprus on the island of Crete…

off the coast of Africa?

14. Michael - February 17, 2008

Did you play madlibs at the IBSBP?

Did we ever! We played strip madlibs!!! It was a frickin’ hoot, especially when KC was losing and was down to her underwear.

Sorry you missed it. 😦

Mad Libs are teh awesome. My sister and I got the biggest kick out of them when we were little. Of course, every noun was “booger,” every adjective was “stinky,” and every verb was “fart.”

My neural computation prof really didn’t do a good job of writing these problems. He’s asking us to show that the differentiation of a certain equation results in another equation. The differentiation of that equation with respect to what? And he asked us to prove a statement that I eventually determined was the Woodbury matrix identity, but didn’t fully define the problem. I bet he has trouble programming with that level of inattention to detail.

Oh, Dave, congrats to your daughter. Sorry, I saw that comment after the thread was dead. Good on her. You know, when a former friend of mine got a full ride to college, her parents bought her a new car. Just sayin’.

17. Bart - February 17, 2008

Okay, just found out about madlibs. You pick words and make up silly stories. Yeah, that can be fun for about ten minutes.

Here’s a sample of my 1st (and last) madlib:

In 1600 an Italian fireman named Galileo
expanded Copernicus’s dumb theories, but during the
Inquisition in Italy he was happily arrested. After
fighting for six months in jail, Galileo was
forced to run.

Interesting. I can see how this game would be good for kids to learn grammar. And for adults, maybe it can give insight into their current mood/subconscious. Sort of like a Rorschach test.

18. Bart - February 17, 2008

theories wasn’t supposed to be bolded

19. Cathy - February 17, 2008

BTW, Isn’t Cyprus on the island of Crete…

Cyprus is in Florida.

20. cranky - February 17, 2008

Glad you all aren’t mission planners with all this vast geographic knowledge on display.

21. Sobek - February 17, 2008

“BTW, Isn’t Cyprus on the island of Crete…”

I thought they did “Insane in the Membrane.” I always hated that song.

22. Michael - February 17, 2008

I thought Cyprus was a swamp somewhere.

23. bartwing plover - February 17, 2008

CYPRUS trees are mentioned a lot in the BIBLE.

(Or is it the CEDAR trees?)

24. Sobek - February 17, 2008

Mr. Papadopoulos was Webster’s adopted father.

This must be the dumbest site on the planet.

26. bartwing plover - February 17, 2008

Noah’s ARC was made from CYPRUS and it smelled really nice even with all those ANIMALS living in it.

27. mesablue - February 17, 2008

Noah needed one of Mr. Lamm’s great devices.

28. See-Dub - February 17, 2008

I hear Mr.Lamm and Marie Sparks are getting hitched.

29. Muslihoon - February 17, 2008

No, no, no, no, no. What you mean must be The King of Persia. He’s in the Bible, folks.

30. Michael - February 17, 2008

Dumbest. Site. On. The. Planet.

31. Lipstick - February 17, 2008

I feel so at home here.

32. Michael - February 17, 2008

I hear Mr.Lamm and Marie Sparks are getting hitched.

Sometimes I wonder what first-time visitors are thinking when they read stuff like this. The in-jokes must put them off.

Dear First-Time Visitor:

Mr. Lamm’s Heavy Metal Genuine Texas Barbecue.

Marie Sharp’s Belizean Hot Sauce.

33. mesablue - February 17, 2008

Your information are very good.

34. Bart - February 17, 2008

I think they think that we beat and eat Beagles.

Which I do.

35. Muslihoon - February 17, 2008

This data is good.

36. Dave in Texas - February 17, 2008

Mrs. Peel, thanks. And we made that deal. Whatever she beats under budget she pockets.

37. Michael - February 18, 2008

Whatever she beats under budget she pockets.

We made the same deal with our kids. If you keep your scholarship, you collect when you graduate.

They both collected.

38. Dave in Texas - February 18, 2008

they earned it.. it was like a job. I agree with that approach.

39. Michael - February 18, 2008

You are a good father, Dave in Texas.

I’m not sayin’ I like you, but you are a good father.

40. Michael - February 18, 2008

Also, thanks for letting me and Cathy shoot your Kimber. That was an inspirational experience.

41. kevlarchick - February 18, 2008

>>>especially when KC was losing and was down to her underwear.

Dammit Michael. So it was a “hoot”, was it?

42. Dave in Texas - February 18, 2008

>>That was an inspirational experience.

I’d say so. Happy B-day Mr. new Kimber owner!

>> So it was a “hoot”, was it?

Plural of that, I think. Nice too!

43. Pupster - February 18, 2008
