Beijing Opening Ceremony

Matt: "You know not one person has been able to watch this without making the joke 'I bet their families get shot if they make a mistake.'"

I'm no economic expert, but I'm willing to bet that part of the dollar's rising strength is due to Michael Phelps' insane winning spree at the Olympics. I mean Americans want to see their country winning in something to compensate for the downer war in Iraq. Watching Phelps command every single Gold medal in the host country that basically owns us, well, that's confidence boosting! And true patriots take that confidence straight to the mall! It should be a matter of policy that every week the economy is in the doldrums network TV should play a montage of Phelps swimming really fast, throwing off his googles, and fist-pumping with a manly grunt, "JEAH!" Lube up the economy with America's number #1 energy juice: testosterone.

I for one know that Phelps' rock hard abs make me want to spend money. Or find my vibrator. Or spend money on a new vibrator. Do you think that's what everyone is spending money on?

Matt is so right.
