Most kids love Borat and think he is funny. I showed my son this video he was laughing so hard.

Borat is really family entertainment! 8)

Ok Dave got me started finding RCI videos on Youtube and now I cant stop!!! I posted an awesome one from Freedom on a new topic, check it out.
I checked out the Freedom vid that was cool. when are you sailing on Freedom??

Youtube is great.

The Explorer does the 9 niter also from jersey but the rate is high. So it's cheaper to fly and cruise out of FL.

Thank You!! Yes, people dont understand the constant struggle shelters/rescues have with the over population.. It is HORRIBLE.. Puppy Mills breed HUNDREDS of dogs at one time, they live in outrages inhumane conditions, most NEVER leaving their cage their entire life. How sad and cruel.. The puppy you buy at a store, 99.9% likely, came from a puppy mill.

If you want a specific breed- YOU CAN RESCUE one! There is a rescue group for every single breed out there. www.Petfinder.com

ESPECIALLY, Rottys, Pitts, etc... large black dogs are the first to be put to sleep- dont shop- ADOPT!

I have my own rescue group and it is an endless struggle. which PS, I designed the site myself which makes me not being able to figure out how to post that video- that much funnier www.Halos.petfinder.org
adding html to each site is different!

~ SPAY AND NEUTER!! ~

Ok, you guys! Here is a good one!! Only problem, he can't go to Olympics as part of the synchonized swimming team. Remember the secen from "The Spy Who Shagged Me" ?



AP

Kenyon Smith is held by his female teammates in last year’s Synchronized Swimming U.S. National Championships.
Synchronize your snickering
Got the jokes out? Good. A ban faced by Kenyon Smith is no laughing matter.

Wall Street Journal
Kenyon Smith, a lithe and good-looking young man who just had his 18th birthday, is an Aquamaid.
He swims, in unison, with the Santa Clara Aquamaids, a California club of synchro*nized swimmers. All the other Aquamaids are girls. They wear sparkly bathing suits, gobs of makeup and starlet smiles as they splash-dance around the pool. They show a lot of leg.
Comics think synchro is great materi*al, and when the joke is on a person of the nonfemale sex, it’s a sure winner. So let’s all laugh at Kenyon Smith, the male synchro*nized swimmer.
Finished?
Now here’s the not-so-comical part: Smith isn’t just any old male synchronized swim*mer. He’s a phenomenon. His twists and splits and head-down pirouettes are crisp and fast. His rocket thrusts him out of the water, pointy-toes first, all the way up to his armpits. He can swim almost 75 yards un*derwater without blacking out.
There are only two things this Aquamaid can’t do: Go to a U.S. college on a sports scholarship. And go for gold at the Olympics. All because he’s a he.
Women have broken into everything from wrestling to rodeo, but in synchronized swimming, the deep end is strictly roped off to men. Colleges striving for sexual parity, as civil-rights law requires, won’t let men waltz*crawl with women. At the Olympic Summer Games, only boxing and baseball still ex*clude women; only softball, rhythmic gym*nastics and synchro still exclude men.
“Not to take away from Kenyon’s abili*ties, but in the world of the Olympics, we’re a women’s sport,? says Ginny Jasontek, presi*dent of USA Synchro. She is also an official with international swimming’s governing body in Switzerland. “We were fortunate and excited in 1984 when we entered the Olym*pic arena as a women’s sport,? Jasontek says.
“That is a rather special position, and we have stayed that way.?
