It's Oscars time. Somebody wake the Grouch.

I wanted to be the cop, but Joschka Fischer beat me to it.

A side of Colin Powell I've never seen. Words fail me.

All right, you people know better than that. Words never fail me and haven't since I was a small child and had that notorius incident with the frozen flag pole. (Wait, that was Peter Billingsley's friend in A Christmas Story, which was directed by Bob Clark, who directed the insipid Porky's, which was not about Warner Brothers loveable stammering swine...anyway, back to Colin's freaky dance show.)

The most amazing thing about this is that he did it Jakarta, Indonesia, a place not exactly known for its warm receptiveness to tributes to gay, disco bands. I wonder if he was caned afterwards for it?

I did do a little research and discovered that there was a whole show, similarly themed, during the Asia Security meeting of 2004. Below is a program, obtained from the top secret vaults of the Sultan of Brunei's cigarsmith at great personal risk from second-hand smoke.
