Where is the top of the hill?

(Alternative title was: "Your tax dollars at work")

Actually I thought I had turned 34 a year ago, so turning 34 today is really not that bad. A year ago, I was working in the clinical department of RxSolutions (man, our website is crappy), nobody knew it was my birthday, and my evil, evil boss made me work 12 hours. This year, the charming coworkers in my new department catered a vegetarian lunch...well, a fishatarian lunch...maybe not fishatarian, what's a lunch made up of fish and vegetarian items called? People seem quite troubled if they can't eat meet meat three times a day. Read more about that here.

Quick email excerpts of my own:

Me-The spread is most impressive. Special Kudos to our new Social Director!

Offended Pharmacist-That is not a spread. Its called kashke bademjoon.

Me-Please see definition #8. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/spread
8. to set or prepare (a table), as for a meal.
Oh, and the kashke bademjoon was the best I’ve had.


In tax related news: The National Institute for Health is spending your money to post this song on their website. I cannot figure out why they are spending your money for this purpose. Snake Woman, who supports using your tax dollars in such a frivolous manner, says this sort of thing makes people happy. Did you know Michael Jackson owns the lyrics to this song? The Federal Government is paying a pedophile to make you happy.

Lasko has lately been making value judgements about various statements I have made. Never did I state I support the use. You asked me why the government is using our tax dollars in such a frivolous manner and I stated it's to make people happy. You set me up and I'd like a retraction.

Jessica said...

Oh...and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! From: #2.

Michael Lasko said...

No retractions. E-speech is free speech. Also, you and your liberal elite are the reason my taxes are so high.

Nicole Lasko said...

I'm glad to see there were no bacon bits.

The word you're looking for is Veganchovy. Or perhaps Herbassious.

As for pure vegans, I prefer to call them Plantagonists.

you misspelled meat. totally unlike you. #1

Oh good catch #1! I asked Lasko if he could take Nicole, #1 and #2-4 (as my ranking often changes) to Vegas in the winter. He said yes! I'm very curious to see you in action as I've never ever seen anyone gamble on War! before. This will be great fun!

BTW, statement of purpose on why the sing-a-long website exists, again this is not a statement of my personal support for this:

Clinton made the memorandum, please note--his VP was Al Gore who invented the internet.
"Subject: Expanding Access to Internet-based Educational Resources for Children, Teachers, and Parents"

Michael Lasko said...

Thanks #1. I have corrected my typo. Tate, how did you miss that one?

Michael Lasko said...

Wait, why am I taking people to Vegas? #1 is the only person I know who gambles enough for comps.

jessica said...

You have made me a very sad cookie. I want to see a real gambler!

Tana said...

One day I will wish you a happy birthday. But not this year, apparently.

Michael Lasko said...

Right back at you Tana.

Ok next time I cash in my comps, we'll go to vegas. But you'll have to promise to bet more than $5 on the tables. By the way, you guys have way too much time on your hands if you're constantly scouring for comments on this website. I didn't think you'd catch my little comment there. #1
