Burnt cheese

I pretty much disagree with 95% of what comes out of Ted Nugent's mouth but he is pretty entertaining as evidenced by this interview with
You’re touring Europe at the moment. Maybe this is just my cultural ignorance, but it seems like the Netherlands wouldn’t necessarily be a natural fit for your particular brand of balls-out rock and kill-’em-all-and-let-Ronald-Reagan-sort-them-out politics. Does “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang” translate to Dutch?

“God indeed created all men equal. Sadly, certain governments deny the exercise of such autonomy and defiance. Therefore, Europeans are driven beyond their wildest dreams to witness an ultimately free man remind them of what freedom looks and sounds like and can do for a ruggedly individual human being, especially with a roaring Gibson guitar and a totally unleashed irreverent piss and vinegar band at his side. They can dream through my music and attitude. It is a beautiful thing.”

A guy from Olathe is running a unique campaign for State Representative. The guy he's running against is the typical regressive and repressive Kansas Republican who wants the Jesus taught in science classes. In order to fund his campaign he set a goal to get 3000 people to donate $8 and put together this somewhat amusing comic called "Running for Office: It's Like A Flamewar with a Forum Troll, but with an Eventual Winner" to draw attention to it. He got a link on boingboing and is currently at 5000+ donors. Anybody that makes a reference to a "verbal Rick Roll" is deserving of a place in government, in my opinion.
