A challenge: create taglines for the new Sir Humphreys

OK I've got a tagline/quote randomizer successfully installed on sirhumphreys.com (link will only work correctly on Firefox). Look at the area just below the masthead - it should have a text tagline. If you refresh it should change to different text.

The challenge: produce witty and/or factual one-liners for inclusion in our tagline database. This may be biased towards Adolf and Zen.

Here's the remaining TODO list for sirhumphreys.com, in order of priority:
1. fix IE CSS layout problem (tips welcome, please, anyone)
2. add a spam protection plugin for comments (already identified)
3. add threaded comments (already identified)
4. add some sort of comment rating system to filter out idiots like johnnie (think Slashdot-style)
5. automatically filter out blogs from blogroll which haven't been updated for 2 weeks (Ashley has provided code - needs to be installed)
5. add user avatar pictures (easy to do)
6. import posts and comments from Blogger.com (not so easy)
7. import Percy's posts from Propaganda News Network (awaiting RWDB)
8. add a voting plugin
9. add a WYSIWYG plugin for the comments

Are you using a flatfile or a database table for your randomiser?

er... its a WordPress plugin called "Randomize". Quite handy really. It will randomly insert anything in its database (a table within the WordPress database), including links, image URL's, etc.

You can add categories, and only extract random text from that category.

Some ideas:

* Caution: Political incorrectness inside
* Fact checking Labour PR since 2005
* Karl Rove's evil minions
* We're right. Are you?
* Kafir and proud
* Psst El Jefe! Know any web designers?

* Stealing LGF's ideas since 2005
J/K but I love their rotating titles.

My old blog posts will be sorted in just a few mins AL.

Now for a few slogans:

-Political incorrectness gone mad
-The role of Sir Humphrey's is whatever Sir Humphrey's defines it to be
-New Zealand's most popular and competent bloggers
-Has links (and hyperlinks) to sinister right wing groups
-Neo-liberals, neo-cons, neo-media
-Peddling privatisation, tax minimisation, low inflation, military retaliation
-A zit on the face of the MSM
-Probably not on Michael Cullen's Christmas card list

If you don't use that I'll encourage Gaz to use it for Ihatesocialism. ;-)

Phil, are you secretly yearning to be a lemming?

Phil, projection isn't a positive personality characteristic.
