Microsoft Pulls Phony Switch Ad
This is sorta old news by now, but WOW! What a stupid, stupid mistake by Microsoft, and how vastly embarrassing for them. Do they really feel the need to counter Apple’s “I switched from PC to Mac!” ads with phony ads of their own? Can’t they find anyone out there (myself, for example) who switched from a Mac to a PC? I don’t understand this at all. The funny thing is, the person who claims to have switched is a PR person who lives up in Shoreline, where I used to live. I love living in Seattle, because all the big MS news is “local”. 🙂 Anyway, a screenshot of the original ad (which, of course, MS has “lost”) is included here. Also, check out the part about the stock image of the woman they used, which is available from Getty Images. Hilarous!!
Streisand calls Saddam “Iranian”
Oh, this is rich. Barbra Streisand (a.k.a. “The Mirror Has Two Noses”) has put her foot in her sizeable mouth so many times in the past couple of months, one begins to wonder just what she’s on. Or perhaps she needs to get herself on something instead, who can tell.
McDonald’s France Puts Its Mouth Where Its Money Is
Oh…my…God. This is astounding! And isn’t the response from McDonald’s USA just hilarious, and yet frightening at the same time? “We do not share this view at all.” Well, of COURSE you don’t. Why would you want kids to stop eating so much of your unnatural, unhealthy shitfood? You don’t care about their health, as long as they’re still able to stuff a McBurger into their fat young faces. What an evil, evil company. Down with the Clown!!
Fast Food Gets Big Slice of Poor Families’ Budgets
Wow, really? You mean all those shitty 59-cent tacos and dangerously unhealthy burgers are a big part of poor families’ diets? You don’t say. I don’t suppose these items are priced to appeal to this income level or anything…nahh, that would never happen. I mean, they wouldn’t want the poor to be fat & unhealthy…would they?
“Jackass”: The Boycott?
Personally, I don’t see why this guy isn’t going after the other kid’s parents and holding them accountable for their less-than-stellar parenting skills. Other people are trying to boycott the movie because their innocent little munchkins hurt themselves trying to re-enact something from the show. I know you parents out there don’t like hearing this, but if your kid is dumb enough to attempt some stupid, dangerous stunt he saw on T.V. or in a movie, then maybe you haven’t done your job as a parent to instill a little common sense into him. Maybe the results of such stupidity is actually deserved. Ever think about that? If you’re dumb enough to ignite yourself as a “human BBQ”, then maybe a good burnin’ will teach you something.
Lemon juice ‘could stop Aids’
This is just amazing. Imagine…something so simple might be able to do what billions of dollars’ worth of toxic drugs shoveled into millions of people haven’t been able to do. Wouldn’t it be the most wonderful thing ever to watch AIDS patients regain their lives…and watch those evil, greedy, soul-sucking pharmaceutical companies wither and die on the vine because Nature beat them to a cure? Or is this just my own perverted fantasy??
Activists Protest Skydiving Dog
OK, the animal activists have just taken one more step into Idiot Land. I’ve seen this pooch perform with his owner, and it’s true…he really does get all excited when he’s about to jump. AND, he’s not jumping alone…he’s tucked safely away inside his owner’s jacket. You activists ought to focus your attention on animals which are actually being neglected and tormented.
Mothers Who Sell
Read this all the way through. You will be absolutely appalled, but perhaps not necessarily shocked… It’s another fascinating look into the mind of an evil telemarketing scum. At least she got out before she screwed over anyone else.
Some Muscle Men View Selves as 98-Pound Weaklings
Well, isn’t this interesting? But I don’t doubt it for a minute. Men are just as susceptible to the perfect-body image as women…we see the “perfect” body all over the media, but even after some guys pump up like crazy, they’re told that even that isn’t good enough. What’s wrong with this picture?
– REV. JERRY FALWELL CALLS THE PROPHET MOHAMMED “A TERRORIST”
– Falwell Remarks Prompt India Riots
What an idiot, calling another religion’s prophet a “terrorist”. Do these things just leave his mouth, bypassing his brain altogether? Does this man have some sort of perverted religious Tourettes? It’s no wonder that other countries hate us, with people like this on the airwaves claiming to speak for everyone. Mr. Falwell, I hope you’re happy…you miserable, hateful twat.
Miss America silenced
Oh, this was so much fun. See how Miss America is paraded all over the media as some sort of important figure in our culture, when the title means absolutely nothing…but when she decides to form an opinion of her own about a prominent issue, she’s told by her masters to shut up, wave, and look pretty. Her masters have since relaxed their stance on this issue, but only after taking a massive PR beating. Good.
Hate crime charges nixed in actor attack
Okay. I know that gay folks in L.A. are shocked and outraged that “hate crime” charges aren’t going to be filed against these assholes. The story has several quotes from people whose entire universe has been thrown off kilter by this decision. But what they don’t seem to realize is that murder is murder. Was hate involved? Almost certainly. Does that make the victim more dead? No. Would a “loving” murder have been any better? No. The guy is still dead. Punish the crime, not the emotions behind it. This is a subtle way of getting some sort of vengeance, and it smacks of (dare I say it?) preferential treatment. If a man beats up or kills another, it’s a crime regardless of race or religion or sexual orientation. Aren’t the laws we already have good enough? I know I’m straying from the gay flock with this one, but I don’t care. Punish these men for their crimes, don’t complicate it with emotional red tape. We’re lucky they caught all three men in the first place, right?
Abortion lyric leads to static on the radio – Some stations queasy about McGraw song
Oh, you’ve GOT to be kidding me. Are people really that sensitive? One program director actually said that this song is “too much over the edge”. Amazing. If people are going to call and complain about a vague reference to abortion in a song on the radio, and completely ignore the blatant violence on T.V., then they really should check their sensitivity levels, not to mention their priorities.
Vandals knock fatal blow to gay resort
Dear Mr. Winkler: Yes, it’s an embarrassing shame that your plans are now ruined, but what did you expect? When you plan to build a “gay resort” in rural Tennessee, you’re just begging for trouble. People in rural Tennessee DON’T WANT YOU THERE. That’s right, they HATE HOMOSEXUALS. My God, man…WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??
