Great Honkin’ Cthulu, we could use more backbone like this in the GOP.
As reported in detail at Lost Lettermen and the Kansas City Star, 5-year-old Emma Burton of Olathe, Kan., refused to participate in a class coloring assignment when she and her classmates were told to color in a Jayhawk, the mascot of the University of Kansas. The coloring exercise was part of the kindergarten class’ celebration of the state of Kansas.
However, Emma wouldn’t comply with her teacher’s instructions. Instead, according to her mother — Bug Bytes blogger Julie Burton — the four-foot tall tot brazenly refused to color the Jayhawk on the grounds that she doesn’t like the University of Kansas. She took the Jayhawk sheet she had been handed, walked up to her teacher and asked for a Powercat (the mascot of Kansas State) to color. When Burton was told there weren’t any Powercats to color, she threw the Jayhawk in the trash.
Go read the rest.
Honors her father & mother?  Doesn’t back down in the face of oppressive official adversity?
Damn, I love that kid!

Denizens, for your weekend we’re going to combine a little countdownage, a little cute-overloadage and a little ROFLMAO-age.
(In other words, I triple-dog-dare you to watch the following without cracking a smile.  Seriously.  I dare you.)
Laugh with me!  A-hahahahaha…!

Denizens, to end the year on a good note, here’s a little Cute Overload-age-ery™ for y’all.  My collie/sheltie D’ohji does this to me a lot, too, so I can identify with the little munchkin.
Happy New Year, guys.  See you on the flip side.
UPDATE:  Actually, I didn’t think I could embed the thing, but here y’all go:

Guys, we start this edition of the Perfect Football Weekend by sending our best wishes to Michigan State U. head football coach Mark Dantonio, whose Spartans gave him a heart attack – literally – as they beat Notre Dame last week.
Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio had a mild heart attack and was hospitalized Sunday morning, shortly after calling an audacious fake field goal to beat Notre Dame in overtime.
The 54-year-old Dantonio had surgery to put a stent in a blocked blood vessel leading to the heart. He’s expected to remain in the hospital a few more days, and offensive coordinator Don Treadwell will lead the team during Dantonio’s indefinite absence.
“This morning, in the very early hours, not long after the football game, Coach Dantonio began experiencing some symptoms,” said Dr. Chris D’Haem, who performed the relatively common procedure to restore blood flow. “Fortunately, his heart damage is very minimal. He’s going to do very well and we’re very optimistic he’ll have a full recovery.”
The Realm™ wishes Coach Dantonio the absolute best.  We still remember TCU coach Jim Pittman, who died on the sidelines of a heart attack during a game at Baylor, so we’re still a little skittish when we hear about such things.
On the other hand, perhaps we could get this little guy to pray for Coach Dantonio:
