Here’s this week’s Noncensus Survey results:
1. (Note: D is the winner, but it doesn’t make sense without the other two) Comedian Wanda Sykes was poking fun at Rush Limbaugh when she allegedly went too far with a joke about hte talke radio king being a terrorist mastermind. It would have been funny if it weren’t:
B. Totally implausible. Limbaugh can’t fit in a standard airport seat.
C. Ridiculous. Back in those days Limbaugh was taking orders from his OxyContin pusher.
D. Never mind, both B and C explain why Sykes’ joke was funny.
2. We know somebody who knows somebody who has been working on a new web design. What’s the first complaint our firend of a friend is sure to hear?
D. “Why doesn’t this look like the Post and Courier redesign?”
3. Gov. Mark Sanford is, again, railing against the proposed state budget for 2009-2010. What can legislators do to appease this guy?
C. Bide their time until he’s too busy with his next Fox News interview to notice.
Our favorite Choose Your Own answers: “Call his bluff and hand out pitchforks,” “Promote him to Limbaugh’s love slave and get him the hell out of Columbia,” and “Listen to him … he might be right!”
4. The Post and Courier recently launched a series about illiteracy in the public school system. We’ve got a few ideas to get young people interested in reading:
D. Write books about things that kids care about, like texting, MySpace, and sneaking out of the house.
You can still take the full survey here. Look for next week’s survey in the News section on Monday.
