Do You Believe In Miracles: Yes.

Some people think america dominating russia in the 1980 winter olympics was a miracle. That's because those people hate america. We tricked the commies during the cold war not because it was miraculous, but because we're awesome. We smoked the russkies in hockey not because it was miraculous, but because we're awesome. I had a joke about the cold war and ice hockey and how they're both cold, but frankly it sucked eggs so i took it out. . . . . I think that last sentence was better than the actual joke. I'm psyched on it.

Anyway, the reason i bring up miracles is because i recently have been the recipient of one. As you may or may not know, i'm currently in taiwan for work. Also, as you may or may not know, there are giant packs of dogs in taiwan. Actually, i have never seen them, but i'm pretty sure they exist. Anyway, i was browsing the interweb and stumbled upon this. The miracle which i speak of.

That's right. Two and a half men, a show that for some reason has tricked people into thinking things were funny when in fact they weren't, has been canceled. This makes me really excited for two reasons.

1. I know that there is a God.
2. Two and a half men is canceled.

Out of all the shows i hate on television, i hate that one the most. I already wrote a post explaining this, so i'm not going to dive into the reasons why. Let's just say, and i mean this in the nicest way, that if everyone associated with the show died, i would be fine. Ok ok ok, that's kind of harsh. Maybe if all of them were in one giant coma where they could share thoughts and what not, but just keep everything to themselves, that would be a little more reasonable.

I'm just surprised that it took this long. If it were up to me, it would have been on the air for a negative amount of time, meaning, it would somehow give back what it has taken from society before it was taken. Unfortunately, this is not possible and there is a huge gaping hole where all things that funny used to be. Maybe over time, we could patch this hole and start over. I guess this is the first step.

If by awesome you mean Canada rules your ass in hockey well your right. Don’t forget you guy's finished second in 1980 and you still are 30 years later.

HAHAHA! Awesome post. "a huge gaping hole where all things funny used to be" - my favorite line!!

So, you've been single-handedly responsible for the cancellation of Two and a Half Men AND for the stopped production of those incredibly loud and annoying Sunchips bags. Do you feel the power?

First of all, congratulations.

Secondly, I just have to add my own bit of negativity to this blog and say that I really don't like it when you use the phrase "suck eggs" - it's gross and you should stop.

I am with Mindy. You have more power than you know. Use it wisely. The universe smiles on you this day.

francois, you need to get your facts straight. We took gold. last time i checked, gold means #1. However last year, we did take second. you are correct in that sense.

mindy and lara, you are both correct.
