I thought tonight we'd just have a little fun. It is Saturday night after all! So I cruised Teh Google and found some funny billboards. I hope you enjoy them below the double gnocchi, but first a word from our sponsor:

TOP COMMENTS
July 21, 2012

Thanks to tonight's Top Comments contributors! Let us hear from YOU
when you find that extremely competent comment.

From leu2500:

I wandered into rserven's contemplative diary seeking a change from the topic du jour.  And I came across allenjo's comment, which is something I think needs to be pointed out more.
From ozsea1:
A suggestion from our good Kossack Dumbo in DSWright's diary about the advantages of Canadian healthcare.
From Dave in Northridge:
The Kos Saturday hate mail-a-palooza is always a fertile site, and the theme produced many TC-worthy comments, but this one, from GenXangster transcended all the others along those lines.
From cohenzee:
Excellent and very funny response by kitebro to yet another liberal's comment in the Rick Warren tweet diary today.
From your humble diarist:
In Laura Clawson's front page post on The War on Workers, nobody at all explained why it's hard for workers to fight back.

In the Midday open thread, TrueBlueMajority posted this hilarious and brilliant parody of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, about "Romney Mitt--The Demon Barber of Wall Street."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
