Red Sox to lose in World Series instead of ALCS! This is the year they will manage to elevate losing to a whole new level!
  • People who were counting the Red Sox out earlier simply don't understand the Sox. They cannot get blown away. The essence of being the Red Sox is that they have to get right on the brink of winning - so close they can taste it - and THEN lose. We're talkin' about a pretty good lead in Game 7 of the Series before they fold like an accordion in a speed-polka contest.
  • (Seriously, congrats to the Sox for the greatest comeback in post-season history.)

Talk about a close election. We monitor six sources for electoral vote projections. I just averaged the six for fun. As of the time I posted this (8:20 PM Central time), the average projection: Bush is averaging 238.8 electoral votes, Kerry 238.8, rest toss-up.

Weekly World News: "HOMELAND SECURITY CHIEF'S HOME ROBBED 5 TIMES IN 3 WEEKS". Even more embarrassing is that Ridge has a home security system that was the model for the nation's "color alert levels" that depict changing threat levels of terrorism. "Whenever a kid rides by with a bicycle, Ridge's 'home alert' goes up to yellow. When rap music is played anywhere nearby, it immediately jumps to orange"

Four new clips from Seed of Chucky. I can't believe I'm typing this, but I saw the new trailer for this last Friday, and I laughed out loud twice. I'm thinking it might actually be a pretty cool movie. Nah! What am I saying? I must have a fever or something.

A trailer and several clips from Surviving Christmas. Facing another Christmas alone, Drew Latham (Affleck) decides to go back to his idyllic childhood home to spend the holidays with family. There is, however, one problem: the people living there now are not Drew's family. Nevertheless, Drew has his mind set on an old-fashioned family Christmas, and the fact that the "family" in question, the Valcos, are complete strangers, isn’t about to put a crimp in his plans. Offering them a small fortune, Drew bribes his newfound "parents" (Gandolfini and O’Hara) to let him spend Christmas in their home, pretending to be part of the family. Just when the Valcos begin to question if any amount of money is worth being dragged all over town on such traditional family holiday excursions as Christmas shopping and the requisite choosing of the Christmas tree, their eldest daughter Alicia (Applegate) comes home for the holidays, with no intention of adopting a new "brother."

Bush wins election endorsement - from Iran.
  • Kim Jong-Il hasn't expressed a preference, to my knowledge, but Bush's support from Iraq and Iran gives him a sure victory in the Axis of Evil voting. I don't think "Evil's choice" is all that good a campaign slogan, but I guess it could help lock in the evil voting bloc, which is so critical to the battleground states of Wisconsin and Iowa.

The legendary Kilgore Trout committed suicide by drinking Drano at midnight on October 15 in Cohoes, New York, after a female psychic predicted a Bush victory. (Editor's note: This is not a pseudo-Vonnegut piece of fan fiction. Kurt Vonnegut wrote this. So it goes.)

A long-standing American tradition is about to end. Dave Barry, The Miami Herald's Pulitzer Prize-winning humor columnist, plans to take an indefinite leave of absence from the newspaper starting in January. Dave's sense of humor and his love of bad music make him truly the King of Other Crap. In fact, it is safe to say that nobody alive today has generated more Other Crap, possibly excepting Bill Shatner.
