Using my handy dandy desk top Random House Thought Re-Combobulator, it is clear these are not random subjects, dear man. Indeed, they all make perfect sense, as anyone can plainly see. Here's how: If you take any three subjects consecutively forward or backward, starting anywhere, your linnear thought relations become apparent. And taken as a whole, the "random" list becomes: inspired, chosen!

For example: Micheal Jordan-tour de france-banana. Banana-chicks-viagra. See? I don't even need to explain further. And it works throughout the "random" list.

Unable to re-combobulate "bass fishing" though. That does appear, curiously, out of place....

Funny place,indeed.

I looked at a few of those "random" sequences and saw many frightening combination. Here are but a couple:

b Neil Armstrong-teletubbies-New Messiah

b Abraham Lincoln-enema-russian teen

Too much time on one's hands?
yeah, but what you didn't tell us is...ET
