18th September
written by Caryn

Apparently I can’t stop blogging about Sarah Palin no matter where I am! Of course the major (MAJOR!!) news this morning is that a group of hackers (also known as internet “griefers” Anonymous) stormed the Alaska governor and VP pick’s Yahoo! email account. And apparently it wasn’t too hard to do — probably by combination of a weak password and Yahoo! suckiness. Of course now there’s a controversy about what the messages contained and whether or not Palin and her cohorts should be using a non-official service like Yahoo! mail. I personally don’t care, but I think Jamelah might have a hard time deciding what is worse: Sarah Palin or dealing with Yahoo! services (ahem). Of course it’s news either way because she’s so high-profile, but this snippet from the Yahoo! News linked story (via AP) made me laugh a bit: “revealing as evidence a few inconsequential personal messages she has received since John McCain selected her as his running mate.” At this rate it’s only a matter of time before the Palin sex tapes are discovered by Perez Hilton! (I’m kidding, people.)

What I really find to be the more intriguing story is that while Pistol Packin’ Palin (and I say that with envy) was getting her inbox haXX0r3d, her spirit was apparently out hacking someone’s toast, leaving the mysterious imprint of her image behind. After thinking of the stories I’ve blogged previously about the Virgin Mary and Jesus (and even the Pope!) being found in wood paneling, mashed potatoes and Doritos, it makes me wonder what’s going on with our food supply? Though I haven’t seen a ghostly image in anything I’ve eaten recently, I did see a green M&M that looked an awful lot like a lima bean. A candy-coated, chocolatey lima bean.
