On Valentine's Day a lot of people walk around feeling giddy and full of love. Except Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle. He gets that way on tax day...

Ladies and gentlemen, these bizarre, disconnected, Nebraska-centric one-liners are just a small portion of the many, many bizarre, disconnected Nebraska-centric one-liners that make up former Jay Leno writer Brad Dickson's newspaper humor column. His very real newspaper humor column. Best thing on the Internet? Best thing on the Internet.
