Advance

Reading is a large town of 145,700 people (by a 2008 government guess) in the county of Berkshire, located in southeast England.

Despite its spelling, Berkshire is actually pronounced BARK-sheer. (No, Fido, I'm not talking to you.) Originally, it was pronounced Berk-sheer, until people realized that "berk" is English slang for a stupid person. Bark, as grows on the sides of trees, is less offensive, though less appropriate too. The county is sometimes called "Royal Berkshire," as theQueen lives in her palace in Berkshire — about as far away from Reading as she can get. (more...)

The Baker's Dozen is a 1967 war film based on the quasi-autobiographical accounts of Greg Brown, a baker and soldier of world renown. It was directed by Robert Aldrich who, although he ate bread and wore army boots, neither baked nor soldiered. Though ostensibly about World War II, the story deals with contemporary 1967 themes of the Cold War, pastry relativism, racism between brown and white bread, and their meanings within patriotism and duty in war. Such themes obliquely refer to the Vietnam War.

Starring Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Telly Savalas, Charles Bronson, and NFL Hall of Famer-turned-actor Jim Brown, it was a huge box office success for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and the year's highest-grossing film, raking in enough at the box office to purchase a one of those really expensive stainless steel mixing machines from Bjorgen-Sturdol & Hurnstgerbronder or with enough left over to purchase ingredients for several sheets of chocolate chip cookies.

Conclave-logo

Roman Catholic cardinals are preparing to conclave at the Vatican on Tuesday to choose a new Pope to replace Pope Benedict XVI , who is the latest Pontiff to resign since God created the world some 5000 years ago. According to highly reliable sources, the unnatural Papal selection procedure clearly specifies that the last cardinal to survive a succession of gladiatorial matches is to be declared the winner. But because MMA is no longer considered trendy, church authorities have instead decided to resort to the fine art of Russian Roulette – a more civilized process which better ensures that the new Pontiff’s selection is based on divine grace rather than brute force or cunning.

Papal spokesman Father Lumbago explained the revised conclave procedure to reporters. On Tuesday morning the 115 cardinals will gather at the Vatican, and will begin the matches after prayers and vespers. During the conclave, all prospective Popes will be paired off to compete at Russian Roulette, gradually reducing their numbers until only one remains. (more...)
