Cheech & Chong are a Grammy Award-winning comedy duo consisting of Richard "Cheech" Marin and Tommy Chong who found a wide audience in the 1970s and 1980s for their films and stand-up routines, which were based on the hippie and free love era, and especially drug and counterculture movements, most notably their love for cannabis.
The duo met in Vancouver, British Columbia in the late 1960s. Chong was a Canadian citizen, and Cheech had moved there from Southern California to avoid the draft at the height of the Vietnam War. The pair performed stand-up shows, released many successful comedy record albums, and starred in a series of low-budget films. Some of their best-known comedy routines and songs include "Earache My Eye", "Basketball Jones", "Santa Claus and His Old Lady", and "Sister Mary Elephant". Perhaps their most famous line is "Dave's not here", from their self-titled debut album.

Vancouver, British Columbia is the answer to today's question. A visit to which is another item on my bucket list, but it comes after my desire to visit Australia and New Zealand.. I just heard from an extremely reliable source that CpPDJT-ID suffers from RPS (Reverse Pinocchio Syndrome). It is described in the latest medial literature with the following characteristic: uncontrollable lying in attempts to increase penis length and hardness since Viagra no longer works, but each lie actually has the opposite effect so that the penis actually shrinks and softens. He currently needs a large magnifying glass to find his own penis even when wearing a long red tie that he uses to point at the area where he last found it.

Vancouver, BC is where Cheech & Chong first met. Wowie Zowie! Happy Earth Day to all you Repukes out there. Eat coal and drink oil till you return to your natural state of solid rock.
"The Veterans of Foreign Wars ripped the House Veterans Affairs Committee Tuesday for considering a proposal to slap troops with a so-called "enrollment fee" for access to GI Bill education benefits... Rep. Phil Roe (R-Villain), the committee's chairman, and other members welcomed feedback from witnesses and veterans service organizations "on whether all, some or none of the proposals under consideration advance through the Committee," the statement said."
So, you want Vets to pay a fee to the government to access their benefits, eh?
That's bullshit, Phil, you craven lickspittle, you...

Rock legend Bruce Springsteen has denounced Donald Trump (R-Grifter) as a "conman" as he collaborated on a new protest song released Wednesday.
Joe Grushecky, a Pittsburgh-based heartland rocker who has worked in the past with Springsteen but has had much less commercial success, titled his song "That's What Makes Us Great" -- a play on Trump's campaign slogan "Make America Great Again."
An energetic rock tune that sounds like it could have come from Springsteen's E Street Band, the song halfway through features The Boss singing verses on his own.
"Don't you brag to me that you never read a book / I never put my faith in a conman and his crooks," Springsteen sings in clear reference to Trump.
"It's up to me and you / Love can conquer hate / I know this to be true / That's what makes us great," they sing.

Action star Chris Pratt swapped his superhero gear for a formal suit Friday as he was awarded a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame for his contribution to cinema.
Pratt, 37, found fame as loveable slacker Andy Dwyer on NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation" but has since become one of Hollywood's most sought-after leading men thanks to roles in "Jurassic World" and Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy."
The actor thanked filmmaker James Gunn for casting him as Star-Lord in "Guardians" -- a role he said had changed "so many lives," from children in hospital to his real estate agent -- and acknowledged Marvel for "taking a chance on the chubby guy from 'Parks and Rec.'"
He also paid a lengthy tribute to his wife, the actress Anna Faris, telling her: "Without you, none of this would mean anything."
Pratt, once a moderately successful TV actor, went to great lengths to build an action hero's physique and was rewarded with his first major lead part in 2014's "Guardians," which went on to gross more than $770 million worldwide.
Britain expects Friday to be the first full day since the Industrial Revolution when it hasn't depended on coal for electricity.
The U.K. has steadily tried to reduce its reliance on the most-polluting of fossil fuels by increasing the use of natural gas and alternatives such as wind. The previous record for coal-free power was 19 hours, according to National Grid, which operates the country's transmission system and expects to achieve 24 hours on Friday.
During the coal-less periods, the plants are not shut down altogether, but do not supply electricity to the grid.
Britain plans to phase out coal altogether by 2025 as it seeks to reduce carbon emissions, which cause global warming. Coal was used to generate just 9 percent of Britain's power last year, down from 23 percent in 2015. Natural gas accounted for 42 percent of generation, followed by renewable sources, with 24 percent, and nuclear at 21 percent.
The embalmed corpse of Vladimir Lenin has lain in a mausoleum on Red Square since his death in 1924 but now, a century after the revolution he spearheaded, legislation designed to turf him out has been introduced into the Russian parliament.
The communist party, which ruled the country until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, called any such move "a provocation" that could lead to mass unrest if pursued.
But the draft law's authors -- four lawmakers from the ruling United Russia party and two from a pro-Kremlin nationalist party -- cited polls showing a majority opposed the presence of the corpse in the heart of the Russian capital.
Lenin's body was originally laid out in a wooden mausoleum but this was later replaced by a granite structure, the seat of a powerful cult of personality from which generations of Soviet leaders presided over parades. The corpse, laid out in three-piece suit, is still viewed by the faithful and by curious tourists, but queues are now shorter than Soviet times.
Previous attempts to remove it have foundered amid warnings it would split society. The legislation introduced on Thursday would enforce no immediate action but remove legal impediments to it being reburied when authorities judged the time right.
Bill O'Reilly (R-Falafel) will be paid $25 million in an exit deal with Fox News, sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter.
That is equivalent to one year of a rich new four-year deal that O'Reilly finalized earlier this year. The network and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, completed the deal with knowledge that a New York Times story would reveal settlements with women who accused The O'Reilly Factor star of harassment after the ouster last summer of founding CEO Roger Ailes amid his own sexual harassment scandal.
Ailes left last July with a $40 million payout, the remainder owed on his contract.
O'Reilly has vehemently denied the allegations and said that he settled the claims to spare his children the inevitable public mudslinging. O'Reilly was a tabloid staple for two weeks back in 2004 when an associate producer at The O'Reilly Factor filed a sexual harassment claim against him. The claim was settled for $9 million.
But inside Fox News, the timing of the most recent payouts caused "outrage" and "disappointment," said staffers, especially among female employees who felt the company's financial decisions were not aligning with their public statements about "respect and dignity" in the workplace. Multiple Fox News staffers said that after Ailes was ousted, women felt more comfortable bringing concerns to management.

A group of psychiatric professionals have warned that Donald Trump (R-Crooked) is dangerously unfit to lead the country.
After a meeting of experts at Yale University yesterday, psychologist Dr John Gartner said of Mr Trump's mental health: "We have an ethical responsibility to warn the public about Donald Trump's dangerous mental illness."
Dr Gartner, who specialises in Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), bipolar disorder, and depression, leads Duty To Warn, a group of mental health experts who consider Mr Trump - who's coming up to 100 days in office - an unfit President.
The group believes Trump suffers from a combination of anti-social personality disorders and extreme narcissism.
He's the type of person, according to Dr Gartner, who would "routinely violate the rights of others, lie and have no remorse".
Donald Trump's (R-Conman) apparently offhand comment after meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping - that "Korea actually used to be a part of China" - has enraged many South Koreans.
The historically inaccurate sentence from a Wall Street Journal interview bumps up against a raft of historical and political sensitivities in a country where many have long feared Chinese designs on the Korean Peninsula. It also feeds neatly into longstanding worries about Seoul's shrinking role in dealing with its nuclear-armed rival, North Korea.
Ahn Hong-seok, a 22-year-old college student, said that if Trump "is a person capable of becoming a president, I think he should not distort the precious history of another country."
Many here assume that Xi fed that ahistorical nugget to Trump, who also admitted that after 10 minutes listening to Xi, he realized that Beijing's influence over North Korea was much less than he had thought.
People who drink just one can of a diet soft drink daily risk tripling their chance of suffering from a stroke or dementia, according to a study.
Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine looked at data from about 4,400 people from the town of Framingham, Massachusetts.
The number of sugary beverages and artificially sweetened soft drinks that the subjects consumed was monitored between 1991 and 2001. Then from 2001 to 2011, the people who drank one artificially sweetened drink per day in that period were found to be almost three times as likely to have an ischemic stroke or be diagnosed with dementia, compared to those who never drank such beverages.
"To our knowledge, our study is the first to report an association between daily intake of artificially sweetened soft drink and increased risk of both all-cause dementia and dementia because of Alzheimer's disease," the study, published in the journal Stroke on Thursday, stated.
The study was unable to determine a cause-and-effect relationship between diet soda drinks and the health risks, meaning more research is needed to find out whether they are actually a direct result of artificially sweetened drinks.
New analysis of the remains of Flores man -- the most complete Homo floresiensis specimen -- suggests the Indonesian "hobbits" evolved from an African relative, not from Homo erectus.
Homo erectus is the only other hominid species found on the islands of Indonesia, but the latest research suggests H. floresiensis and H. erectus belong to separate lineages.
"The analyses show that on the family tree, Homo floresiensis was likely a sister species of Homo habilis. It means these two shared a common ancestor," Debbie Argue, an archaeologist at Australian National University, said in a news release. "It's possible that Homo floresiensis evolved in Africa and migrated, or the common ancestor moved from Africa then evolved into Homo floresiensis somewhere."
Scientists estimate the Indonesian hobbits arrived on the island of Flores some 100,000 years ago, traveling by raft, and survived until just 54,000 years ago.
Whereas previous studies of hobbit bones focused exclusively on skull and jaw fossils, the latest analysis relied on the entirety of the Homo floresiensis fossil record, comprising several hundred bones from at least nine specimens.
