Things that make me go WTF?

Viva H. points to a very odd set of Remarks by the President to the Press Pool"; without context, and without names or positions attached to the various people denoted as "Q," it's a little surreal, especially given that it takes place in Roswell.

And speaking of surreal: Josh S. points to a set of Trunk Monkey ads. (#2 and #3 are very similar.)

The ribs thing is totally bizarre.

The pool reports are always structured that way. The really sad thing is I've read them enough -- great way to see the spin firsthand -- that I can now generally tell who a reporter is by either timing or question. And you can confirm this, because they do include it in the transcript when the person conducting the briefing, usually Scott McClellan, uses a name to call on someone, or in their response.

I have to admit the briefings aren't nearly as much fun/infuriating to read since Ari left.

BTW, in the press gaggle en route to Roswell there actually were "alien" jokes included in the transcription. :)
