Ah, kids these days, they have no sense of humor!

Calif. education secretary apologizes for comment to girl.
This is one of the funniest “politician moments” I’ve ever seen. I literally choked on my Honey Bunches of Oats cereal because I didn’t expect it.
The scene: Richard Riordan reading to preschoolers.
Little girl: “Did you know my name means Egyptian Goddess”?
RR: (thinking the little girl asked him if he knows what her name means) “It means “stupid, dirty girl.”
Um… ok…
I have no idea what the hell the man was thinking when he said that. Apparently, he thought it was a funny little joke, but no one else did. Except me, of course. I mean, it’s not funny in the sense that he probably made the little “Goddess” cry, but for Chrissakes… to see the man clearly lose his mind on videotape? In front of preschoolers? Priceless.

    That is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. I think there is a problem with the little filter that goes between that man’s brain and mouth. Not all of us say what we are thinking. Typical man. Foot in mouth disease.

    We want baby bedroom pictures! We want baby updates!
    Ha ha, that’s so terrible. Last night my dad thought he was making a joke when he called my sister a “friendless loser”, since she calls herself that sometimes…didn’t go over well, to say the least.
    Is it cold where you are, Yvonne? I saw Xmas pictures and stuff on your blog, and you mentioned it being cold, but just how cold does it get there?
