If I had a Multi-Million Dollar Contract...

So I don't know if you've heard, but Michael Vick is an idiot.

A little while back Michael was accused of trying to sneak weed onto in airplane in the secret compartment of a water bottle. This is post 9/11 people. A water bottle? The idiotic nature of what he was doing should be fairly obvious. But just to drive the point home, here's an SNL clip that sums it up pretty well.

Vick was acquitted of those charges, but recently he found himself in some more trouble with the law. Last week he was indicted for training and fighting pit bulls. Pretty horrendous stuff, especially for a self proclaimed dog lover.

Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia was particularly displeased with this recent turn of events and made sure to announce this to the Senate, who apparently wasn't busy with anything else that day. I'm not sure if he was making arguments against dog fighting or for term limits, but Senator Byrd hates dog fighting just as much as he loves repeating things three or more times. I wouldn't recommend watching this entire thing, but check out when there's about 5:10 left in the video.

We already know what I'd do with a million dollars, but I guess Vick is having trouble finding ways to legally spend all that green.

I fear that dog fighting is just the tip of the iceberg.

Michael Vick is indeed an idiot. However "Amy" is about the least-funny person I've ever seen in an SNL skit. Maybe I would know this if I watched SNL, but I basically live under a rock in a cave on a different planet.

I'm gonna go ahead and blame Amy Poehler's unfunny-ness on SNL and not her.

She was a writer for Upright Citizens Brigade, as well as a part of the greatest TV Show of all time.

Plus she married to GOB Bluth, both in real life and in AD, so props to her on that count.

Nice avatar you're rockin' there Mr. Johnson ;)

So true Ben.

And wtf is with this video. This makes me want to run for Senate. At least I could save the country some money by not having to pay someone to grab pieces of paper after I have read them.

My thanks to its creator, Mr. Weiland.

If you haven't copyrighted the horse dancing on a wood plank over sharp rocks betting game yet, you're crazy buddy. That would do big business.

I'm working on it Minh, but apparently PETA isn't a big fan of killing horses any more than they are of wearing fur.

I completely agree with you on Senator Byrd Ross. And keep in mind, I didn't even post Parts I and III of that speech. I would be ashamed to live in West Virginia right now.

That being said, I have no idea who my senators are at the moment.
