So! The latest thing with fashion-obsessed women these days is to chop off parts of their feet in order to fit into unnaturally small shoes. That’s right. And why not? If your ultimate goal in life is to conform to the impossible standards dictated to you by the fashion industry (and models whose puked-out meals could have gone to feed a starving country instead), then more power to ya, gurl! You chop those toes & corners off! Show us that toe cleavage. We wanna see you shine! (And bleed.)
Oh great, another dumbass email virus which takes advantage of idiot email users who don’t know what to open andwhat to delete. This one preys on our terrorism hysteria. How many people will believe it? I’m guessing several million, maybe more. Will people ever learn?
Hooray, finally some public arrests of evil spammers who are filling our inboxes with crapola. These people are domestic terrorists in my book. They steal our bandwidth which costs billions per year to handle, they invade our privacy, they track our surfing, they steal our email addresses and sell them to others, and they circumvent the law any way they can in order to avoid being held responsible for the chaos they create. They deserve life in jail.
Every year around Christmastime, we’re treated to delightful stories of stampeding shopper mad cows who rampage inside shopping centers, pushing and shoving and fighting and clawing their way through the crowds to get all those toys that the T.V. told them they’ve just got to buy in order for them to have a good Christmas and keep the children from feeling cold and rejected and alienated from their snotty playmates at school whose parents probably got them the same exact crappy toy. (Whew!)
You know, this story has astonishing implications…and yet, I didn’t see it covered hardly at all on the news. Maybe I’m missing something, but this story sorta came and went within 24 hours. What happened? What if it’s true?? I’m inclined to believe it. Hey, if the military outright lied about Jessica Lynch’s “dramatic” rescue (and they did), why wouldn’t they lie about how they found Saddam? They are fully capable of telling any lie they wish, pulling the wool further down your face.
This is quite frightening. Thinking about doing some protesting soon? You’d better strap on your crash helmet and put on some extra padding, because it sounds like the police are learning that they can beat the shit out of you just for showing up. A much more detailed look at this problem come from Salon.com, and they have their title exactly right: This is Not America. Read it…it’s simply alarming.
What? Boston is going to buy drugs from Canada? Woohoo!! Finally, someone has the balls to stand up to the FDA and say “We know what we’re doing, now buzz off.” The FDA, as we all know, is being completely unreasonable with their Canadian drug fears. It comes down to money, of course. Pharmaceutical companies in the U.S. are making a killing with their prices…sometimes it’s a literal killing, when someone can’t afford their medicine because the prices are so goddamn high. It’s greedy and evil: two words that sum up these government policies and the drug companies who benefit from them.
Speaking of the FDA and drugs, they’ve finally caved to alarmist pressure and very publicly banned the supplement ephedra. The Reuters story here is full of scary words and phrases: unsafe, heart attack, stroke, ephedra can kill, etc. Anyone who has researched this stuff knows that yes, if taken in improper doses, ephedra can kill you. But then again, so can just about any other drug or supplement out there. The reason most of these 150 people died (most of them seem to be athletes) is because they took too much of it, and then were too physically active, which drove their heart rates through the roof. Obviously, this is not wise. I’ve been reading these “death by ephedra” stories for several years now, and 95% of the time, this is why they die. I took this supplement for almost a year straight back in 2001 while I was hitting the gym every day, and I lost over 30lbs. I used it responsibly, and I never tried taking extra doses and then working out extra hard. But that’s me. Like someone in this interesting story says, “cold medicine kills more people a year than ephedra does.”
Oh yes, finally some group has put theircollective foot down about such nitwitty words as “bling-bling” and “punk’d” and made their disgust public. Words like these have been fingernails on the chalkboard of my subconscious since I first heard them. It’s time for them to die!
I think the gene pool has become a little too polluted. Here is a guy who gets on an airplane, takes a boxcutter out in plain view, and can’t seem to understand why everyone is going apeshit over it. He doesn’t seem to be joking, either…he honestly has no clue. Somebody slap this guy and ask him what planet he’s been living on for the past two years.
Simply amazing. Apparently it’s against the law to interrupt these manlier-than-thou deer hunters in their quest to shoot and kill an animal. Such actions prevent the resulting testosterone rush and feeling of doing something really primal and hunter-gatherer-like…and that’s bad. When dorks in plaid hats and camouflage clothing can’t properly kill a big animal with their non-hunter-gatherer-like weapons, they get cranky. Don’t do that.
So you still don’t think Bush lied about those WMDs, eh? OK, then check this out and let me know what you think. He told Senators that Iraq was able to bomb the East Coast with their nasty weapons which don’t seem to exist. What’s that? You admit he lied now? Well, finally you see the light!
This whole mad cow thing is just so entertaining. And here we have some unexpected casualties: French fries soaked inbeef tallow which may be infected with the bug. (They are French fries again, aren’t they? They were briefly transformed into Freedom Fries by childish dorkwads in Washington a while back, but hopefully they’ve stopped playing in their sandbox by now and have let it go.) I wonder which fast food joints were about to serve these meaty little tater-treats to the public. Supposedly the Evil Clown has stopped this nasty practice, but just imagine the chaos that other restaurants could have created if these had actually gotten into distribution. Fun!!
The War on Terror continues. I suppose that as long as we get the bad guys, we can’t complain too much about killing a few children along the way, eh? I mean, Saddam is out there, man!! He’s got anthrax and nukes and halitosis and he’s going to KILL OUR COUNTRY unless Bush keeps giving those orders to blow stuff up!!
This excellent article called Have Yourself a Horny Little Christmas appeared on Salon.com recently. It describes the latest Abercrombie & Fitch catalog, which is little more than naked, frolicking, perfect-looking models…which is, of course, a dead-accurate representation of the majority of us shoppers. Uh-huh. The author also writes some fun stuff about his experience in an A&F store and dealing with its hopelessly inept A&F salespeople. Great stuff!
Oohhhh, I’m loving this. Former employees of clone factory Abercrombie & Fitch are coming forward with the dirt on their hiring and scheduling practices. And it confirms what we’ve suspected all along: A&F tries to hire only the beautiful. And those not-so-beautiful people who manage to get into their company end up working the shittiest schedules. Isn’t that a nice all-American business practice?
All this fuss about gay marriage has left me mystified. The hysterical reaction from most conservatives (“the American public will disintegrate…our enemies will overtake us because we have no moral will”, says talk radio moron Sandy Rios) is amusing and unsurprising. For years we’ve been able to see that marriage is no longer the “sacred covenant” between two people that it used to be. How sacred is marriage when half of them end up in divorce? And what about people who get married just because one of them got knocked up, or they were drunk at the time? Yeah, that’s something special. Marriage has been vastly devalued in the past few decades, which is why I don’t think it’s any big deal to let gay people enjoy the same legal joining (and benefits) that straight people do. Slate.com recently featured a great article on this, and the author states the case far better than I can!
This is a terrible shame, but it’s hardly surprising. What do schools cut when budgets get tight? They cut the programs that can actually benefit you all through your life and make you a more well-rounded person, such as language, art, and music. Do they ever consider cutting back the sports budget? Yeah, right. Sports teams control the schools and their budgets, it’s that simple. Football and basketball players are worshipped as the highest possible life form in our high schools, and it’s an absolute travesty. It also shows the world exactly where our priorities are when it comes to education: sports teams get the cream of the budget, and all those more cerebral activities can keep begging for scraps.
The Rev. Al Sharpton (who, like Jesse Jackson, desperately wants to appear as a Martin Luther King Jr. ideologue but is actually doing his best to roll back the progress of civil rights by decrying everything as racist) is apparently being a bit naughty with his spending lately. Of course, a squirrel crossing a 16-lane freeway has a better chance of becoming President than he does, but his wasting of campaign money on luxury hotels and other expensive things should not go unnoticed. It’s just another abuse of money and power by someone who claims to represent the downtrodden and repressed.
Thank God we have a plain-speaking Defense Secretary like Donald Rumsfeld to tell us, the American people, what’s really going on in clear, straightforward English. “Reports that say something hasn’t happened are interesting to me, because as we know, there are known unknowns; there things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know.” Wow, that’s exactly what I was thinking! This one earned Rummy a Foot In Mouth Award.
The RIAA is at it again, suing people for downloading music. And look, they’re even targeting old people without computers! But these old geezers don’t fool me…I totally know they’re downloading Linkin Park and Vanilla Ice.
Isn’t it heartwarming how much denial and ignorance is still rampant in our society regarding the presence of “those people”? Rather than acknowledge this kid’s gay parents, this primitive-minded school is treating him like he has a “problem” and needs help from a “behavior clinic.” It’s just disgusting. ANNOUNCEMENT: Gay people exist, and they’re everywhere. Get over it. On a side note, this kid’s spelling is appalling. This teacher isn’t doing a very good job as a teacher if one of her students admits in writing that he “sed bad wurds” and should have “cep my mouf shut.” Then again, we have rapping morons like Ludacris putting out albums like “Word of Mouf.” Talk about a bad spelling double-whammy…
Well, the post-Thanksgiving shopping stampedes are well underway, with millions of consumer cattle flooding the nation’s malls and superstores to buy the latest Christmas shit at bargain prices. Who cares if the happen to trample someone in their endless mooing quest for merchandise? Getting the last “Foot Fetish Elmo” at the local Wal-Mart is the only thing that matters, right??
UPDATE on the trampled Wal-Mart shopper! Looks like this isn’t the first time she’s been “injured” while shopping, especially at Wal-Mart. My, isn’t this interesting. Those shopping cattle still should have stopped to help, but if she put herself in that position intentionally, then she deserved what she got. And now her face has been broadcast all over the world, so I’m guessing that it will be quite difficult to pull this scam again.
This is certainly interesting: apparently the Atkins Diet is wreaking major havoc on the bread industry as people begin cutting out the things that are making them fat…namely, empty carbohydrates. Personally, I’ve been doing the low-carb thing since April and have lost almost 20 lbs. Looks like other people are getting similar results with it, which is a good thing. Unless you’re a breadmaker, of course.
OK, it’s obvious that our President ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed, but I think some people are being a little too sensitive in this case. Folks in Nevada are pissed off because Bush pronounced the name of their state wrong. That’s right…this actually made the Associated Press. Come on, people…let’s focus on REAL news, not this nitpicky crap. So he didn’t say it exactly the way you say it…get over it.
KFC is catching some well-deserved heat for their absurd “our food is healthy!” commercials. Yes, chicken is healthy…but not if you leave the skin on and fry it up in fat. This ad campaign is beginning to backfire in a big way. Everyone giggle in delight with me!
KKK dorks unite! This racist moron got what he deserved…a bullet in the head from one of his own klansmen who was apparently firing his gun into the air in a righteously Aryan manner. Serves you right, ya bastard.
Oohhhh, Wal-Mart is getting some pretty bad press lately over this whole illegal immigrant thing. And now they’re getting sued for it. Oh, happy day! There’s nothing like watching a giant company like this, which goes out of its way to portray itself as the all-American Good Guys, squirm and twitch in the heat of the public spotlight when they’ve been caught doing something naughty.
More reports that Jessica Lynch is disturbed by the way the military has been portraying her capture and rescue to the media. Just when you think they couldn’t sink any lower, the find a way to let a little more water out of the pool.
More dumb news from the fast food biz: looks like Kentucky Fried Chicken is actually making the claim that their deep-fried food “can be part of a healthy, balanced diet.” Sure, any fast food is OK in moderation, but the way this ad is described by the author of this excellent article, it appears that KFC is trying to say that their food should be more than an occasional indulgence. The scary part is the number of sheeple out there who will believe it and use it as an excuse to eat buckets o’ grease in the name of good health. Yes, some people really are that dumb. 🙂
McJob Update: Looks like McDonald’s can stop whining, ’cause this word is staying in the dictionary. Looks like Ronald is a sad clown now…
I just cannot believe this. Or can I? A federal judge ruled that 17 soldiers who were imprisoned and tortured in Iraq are entitled to compensation out of frozen Iraqi assets. But our beloved President doesn’t want them to get anything. He wants to feed that money back into this bullshit “reconstruction.” These guys put their lives on the line because Bush said to…they were burned, beaten, and threatened with castration. Zillions of dollars are sitting there in frozen assets, and giving them a little extra cash for their trouble would hurt nobody…but no, we can’t have that. ‘Cause Daddy Dubya says no. This is a guy who dressed up and pretended to land on an aircraft carrier for a photo op, and who hasn’t actually served in the military. What a dirty rotten bastard.
Why do we keep hearing about some nutball lady with hundreds of cats in her house? What in the world is it that makes a woman (and it’s a woman 95% of the time for whatever reason) want to feed and keep all these cats, even though they have severe health problems? Why???
This is sooooo rich. McDonald’s is actually offended that the latest Merriam-Webster dictionary contains the word McJob, which is slang for “low paying and dead-end work.” Well, unless your life goal is to manage a McDonald’s restaurant, this is pretty much what you’re stuck with: a job that goes nowhere and pays McShit. Oh well.
OK, when a government is so uptight about “morals” that it’s willing to throw its own citizens into jail for kissing in public, I think a revolution is in order.
What? America is getting fatter? You don’t say! As scales now reach up to 1,000lbs and a slew of products is available to help the morbidly obese do everyday things that their fat prevents them from doing, I begin to wonder where it will end. Before you know it, we’ll be having to expand all the cemeteries to accommodate all those giant shipping crates that will be used for their coffins.
Well, now. It looks like being a righteously angry American redneck country singer (is that redundant?) can really pay off these days. Toby Keith has been nominated for seven Country Music Awards, YEEEE-HAWWWWW! He’s nominated for best single, best video, and best “vocal event.” What the hell is a “vocal event”? Must be something that righteously angry American redneck country singers do. Whatever. Like countless other artists eager to jump on the Angry American™ bandwagon, he’s done all he can to cash in on the post-9/11 anger with such sanctimonious songs as “Beer for My Horses” and “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue.” I’ve heard the lyrics, and they’re, like, soooooo deep and stuff. Like, he’s talkin’ about Miss Liberty shakin’ her fist, and puttin’ a boot up someone’s ass…it’s pure country gold! Or pure horseshit, one or the other.
Once again, Uncle Sam steps in to save us from ourselves. Apparently some of you naughty citizens have been getting your prescription drugs from Canada for up to 80% cheaper than American prices. Shame on you! Don’t you know that these drugs aren’t SAFE? Even though Canadians are taking them and don’t have any problems, you know how sneaky those people are…it’s probably a plot to slowly kill us off with poisonous drugs. So before you decide to save some extra food money and try to buy your prescription drugs from a cheaper Canadian source, remember that Big Brother is watching and will throw your pill-popping ass in jail if he catches you exercising your basic right of choice. (Sigh…what a crock of shit. If Canada sells drugs so cheaply, then I should have the right to buy them from Canada. Or anywhere else I wish. I guess the FDA would rather have someone choose between medicine and meals than admit that their stupid policies are inhumane.)
I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner. Why in the world don’t fast food restaurants put nutritional information right up there where you can see it? I shouldn’t have to go to the Taco Bell website to get nutritional information (though I’ve refused to eat Taco Bell’s food for years). Why not put it on the actual food cartons? If all other food items in cans, bottles, and boxes are required to put nutritional info right on the label, why are fast food companies any different? I’d love to see someone buy a Big Mac with a nutritional label slapped right there on the top where they can see how much fat, cholesterol, calories, and just plain grease they’re about to suck down.
OK, I think I know all I need to know about fish, now that I know that some fish can fart.
Ooohhhhhh, I’m loving this whole Jessica Lynch thing. She’s finally speaking out about how the military has turned her into an involuntary cult hero by fabricating facts about her “rescue” from that Iraqi hospital. Details about these lies came out a few months ago, but the military still won’t confess that they used her as a PR tool to romanticize the latest Iraq war. It’s just laughable, and it shows us that the military and government are willing to lie about anything to justify their actions and give them a positive spin.
Looks like some faith-based organizations which are supported by taxpayer money aren’t being very Christian. This one in particular has decided that it doesn’t want to hire any Jews or gays. Oh yes, I think Jesus would approve of that kind of open-faced discriminatory nonsense, don’t you? And now they’re going to lose their funding if they don’t change their evil ways and start treating everyone, not just straight Christians, like human beings.
We all know that the Pentagon routinely wastes our money without a second thought. It’s not their money, after all, so they just don’t care. But this is just too much: 68,000 commercial flights costing $120+ million which should have been coach class but instead were expensive premium tickets. And, like so many other wasteful things purchased by military and government officials, they were charged to seemingly limitless government credit cards. I think these people ought to spend a few months in jail for such blatant abuse, what do you think?
Here’s an interesting story about how tots are acting more like teens lately, and someone is actually connecting T.V. with this behavior. I absolutely believe that by watching too much T.V., kids can grow up to be shallow, angry, materialistic, fearful, and unhappy with themselves. This is what T.V. teaches us, after all: fear the world, be unsatisfied with yourself, and by all means find happiness and meaning in limitless consumerism. And I can just picture these millions of children sitting in front of their T.V. sets like little empty vessels waiting to be filled with harmful, hateful garbage.
Strange…I can’t seem to find any stories in the U.S. media (online, at least) about this guy who’s suing the U.S. for his inhumane treatment as a “suspected terrorist” at the U.S. military prison Camp X-Ray in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. But it’s all over the BBC and other networks. Isn’t that interesting? I suppose our media will pick up on it weeks down the road, slipping it in right at the end of the broadcast or down in some unknown corner of a newspaper.
This story brings up an excellent question: why won’t our media won’t allow us to see footage of the choppercrash victims as they’re brought home for burial? I’m not talking about graphic photos of the remains, but just the coffins. Why is that? Is it to keep our country from fully realizing the brutal realities of war? People are dying over there every day, and all we see of them are old photos of them smiling and happy. Where are the coffins, the body bags? War isn’t about soft, pretty pictures of people in uniform or with their families. It’s about death and devastation. That’s the whole nature of war, and I think we’re being shielded from it. Of course, our government pretended to have a moral dilemma when it came to releasing photos of Saddam’s sons, but everyone knew they’d do it. It’s good press. “Look what we did, we bagged a couple o’ evildoers!” Yes, that’s all fine & dandy…but let’s not forget how many dozens of OUR people have been bagged as well.
Are these people insane? The cult of child-worship rears its ugly head again as some anti-drug group out there thinks that millions of children are going to suddenly get hooked on sucking helium because they saw a puppet do it in a commercial. A couple of things here: 1) Helium is not a drug. You can inhale it, yes. But how high does it rank amongst inhalant-related deaths every year? That’s what I thought. 2) Even if helium were a “drug”, where do you think highly-impressionable tots are going to get it? It’s not like helium tanks are a common household item, unlike aerosol cans that are usually used for snortin’. 3) You “save the children” folks need to stop crying wolf and focus on the REAL threats to children: parents who raise their kids to hate others and eat unhealthy food, the intense barrage of advertising targeted at kids, and bad Disney animated sequels.
Oh, this is just too much fun. Following in the footsteps of absurd boycott groups like PABAAH, the NRA thought it would jump on the boycott bandwagon and create a blacklist of people who are openly anti-gun. “We won’t see your movies because you’re anti-gun! Yeah, that’ll show ’em!” Wrong-o. Amusingly, many stars who were initially left off the list have been begging to be put ON it! Personally, I think that people ought to be able to own a handgun for defense purposes, which I know is something the NRA supports. But assault rifles? Hmmm…I’m not so sure, but it’s been a while since I’ve debated that one. Anyway, in the meantime I enjoy watching stuff like this.
Mysterious signals… Unusual sounds… UFOs? Secret encrypted spy transmissions? Nope, just a horny ram scratching himself on a government communications antenna. This is such a good story. 🙂
I got quite a good laugh out of this story about a kid who was smacked by a bus driver because he kept saying “penis.” The kid’s defense is even funnier!!
Well, well, well! Now that our armed forces have beat the living shit out of yet another country, our ravenous corporations are ready to swoop down and carve up the place amongst themselves for as much profit as they can muster. And gee, I just can’t image who made all this wonderful greedy activity possible! Yes, we’re always willing to “rebuild” a country after we’ve completely trashed it, as long as it means lots of expensive contracts with bloodsucking corporations.
Oh, and speaking of that Iraq war thing… Our beloved President gave a speech today after news broke that 16 troops were killed in a chopper crash caused by a shoulder-launched missile. “America will never run,” he says. Translation: “Pulling out now would mean I’m a wussy little wimp.” Bush is terrified of looking like a wimp and taking the risk that someone out there will question the size of his pee-pee. But this is a perfect example of our culture in action: we just don’t know when enough is enough.
Looks like AT&T is about to be fined almost $800,000 for violating the new Do-Not-Call rules. Ohhhh yes. This totally made my day! Anything to show that the FCC means business with this stuff. You telemarketers out there can just crawl back under whatever slimy rock you came out from.
Are firemen really “heroes”? This is something that has crossed my mind a few times but I never gave it much serious thought. That’s why I was really interested in this article which lays out some very good reasons why maybe we should reconsider that particular label. It’s surely not a popular opinion, but you have to admit that he makes some good points!
Awww, what a shame. A non-profit group which claims to have successfully converted homosexuals into heterosexuals won’t be able to put their ludicrous advertising up in D.C. Metro stations because the city is making them pay for it. “It’s a very sad day for non-profits,” says this group’s executive director. No, it’s a sad day for your moronic and dangerous group of delusional religious zealots, that’s all.
The celebrity gossip shows like Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood are whipped into a frenzy as they portray this California wildfire tragedy as a made-for-T.V. event. They show all the usual footage of rampaging flames and destroyed homes while the announcer retains his “excited about Britney’s new release” tone of voice…it’s just disgusting. Do they show ANY concern? Yes, about as much as they would for an update on last weekend’s low box-office returns. However, they DO get very animated when going on and on and on and on and on (and on) about celebrity homes in danger, as well as popular T.V. show sets. Forget about all those mere mortals whose homes are being torched daily…the gossip-mongers have to keep the public up-to-date on which celebrities can see the fire from their terrace swimming pools. For shame.
Another tragedy strikes as Disney learns that their new self-destructing DVD rental system is the stupidest idea since DivX a few years ago. But what else to expect from a company whose spokesman is a gutter-dwelling rodent?
McDonald’s isn’t fooling anybody with their “new” McNuggets which are now 100% white meat. Who cares what kind of meat it is if they’re still a high-fat food with little nutritional value?
American propaganda gets a glossy, high-fashion finish with the unleashing of Hi Magazine upon the unsuspecting Iraqi public. Sorry, but Hi is not enough. This “window on American culture” is a thinly-veiled attempt at trying to convince Iraq youth that we’re hip, we’re sexy, and we’ll pretty much do whatever we want in the name of righteousness, money, oil, and whatever other self-interest we can come up with. ‘Cause we’re AMERICA, baby, and we’re down with Arabs, yo!
Oh great, we’re about to be bombarded by a bunch of crappy products with “shock and awe” in their names. The Marketing Scum don’t waste a minute, do they?
Gator, the evil spyware company which installs crap on your PC to track everything you click, surf, and buy, has tried to change its slimy image by renaming itself Claria. Wow, what a transformation! Such a crisp, clear name, so full of clarity and clearness. A company with a name like THAT couldn’t possibly be engaged in questionable activities to invade your privacy, could it? Nahhhh!
Jesus wants you to work out. Yeah, baby. That Lord wants you to SWEAT. Build up those holy abs and tighten that righteous ass, ’cause when Jesus gets back he’s gonna make you drop and give him 20! (Or 33, if he’s in a mood.)
Well, well, well…Abercrombie & Fitch have put their perfectly-shaped model feet in their mouths again. And look, we finally have a photo of one of the offending T-shirts. Lovely, isn’t it? No, nothing racist about that…everyone knows that all Asians have laundry and dry-cleaning businesses. Yes, I know it’s a stereotype, and there is a nugget of truth to be found in all stereotypes (that’s where they come from, after all), but putting one on a shirt and selling it? Not a good idea.
Advertisements for”Celebrate Life Sweepstakes” have been appearing in Seattle area cemeteries (and other places around the country). That’s right, apparently no place is safe from the Marketing Scum… A bunch of locals finally got fed up with it and forced the cemetery company to remove them. Why didn’t they just go ahead and put ads on top of hearses and blinking neon signs on headstones? Evil, evil people.
That infamous Cubs fan made an apology recently for his mortal sin of upsetting a lot of rabid, rampaging, animalistic baseball fans. I thought it was hysterical watching adult men & women act like this man’s actions were worse than a thousand WTC attacks. There’s just something entertaining about watching people mortally wounded over meaningless things.
Dear God, why? Why do you smite us so? Why do you allow such things to happen? Why did you think it was necessary for the Olsen Twins to start selling their own toothpaste? Have we somehow offended you more than usual? Do we need to apologize for Pat Robertson and Jesse Jackson yet again??
Holy shit, AOL is getting desperate. They’re now resorting to paying radio personalities to casually mention AOL several times a day while on the air, without mentioning that it’s a commercial. It’s stealth advertising, and it’s EVIL. But, as always, money talks…AOL can apparently afford to pay these people to blur the lines in order to boost their declining membership. The time is nigh for AOL to go down in flames once and for all…
Arizona recently passed an anti-discrimination law, which is always like kicking an anthill: stand back and watch the Christian conservative groups whip themselves into a mouth-foaming frenzy. Ain’t fairness fun?
What? College binge-drinking is linked to marketing? Oh, come now…that can’t possibly be true. Nobody in college really drinks that much beer… As much as I loathe Disney, I did get a kick out of its no-fly zone which prevents anti-gay whackjobs from flying hateful banners over Disneyland. Yeah, we’re all going to Hell in a rotating teacup.
A resort for grotesquely fat tourists? Dear God, I can only pray that I don’t get shipwrecked there someday. Although I wouldn’t have to worry about food…
Bush’s ever-tightening grip on our privacy and freedom of information is now tightening on academia. Gone are the days of unhindered research and innovation, folks.
Irreplaceable ancient history falls in the name of building a hotel. Ah, progress. and the reckless humans who screw it up.
Oh…my…GOD. The New Testament is about to be given a makeover. Get ready for Revolve, the Bible for teen girls. Yes, once again some clueless Christians are trying to reach the teen market by trying to combine the sacred & holy with the vacuous & stupid. Salon.com recently featured a great article titled Jesus is My Crush which really goes into some fun detail…
Woohoo, another tale from the wild, untamed sports world. In this one, a member of the Giants herd attacks and kills a member of the Dodgers herd. Isn’t wildlife fascinating??
You mean all that bad news about the latest Iraq War ain’t right? Uh-huh. Bush is trying to get around the “media filter” and push his propaganda unhindered. Good luck. Just because you give some nobody local news station a personal appearance doesn’t mean everyone will believe your unfiltered crapola.
I am just astounded by this. What in the world was this moron thinking, using a halftime show to fly a Nazi flag and make his band play “Deutschland Über Alles?” Jeezus! What this man doesn’t realize is that he is a high school band director. That’s it. Let’s leave the big heavy emotional statements to people who know what the hell they’re doing.
I love it when stuff like this happens. It jolts people out of their daily routine and ruffles their feathers. We need more crossed signals like this, such as during heated political screaming on Fox or during one of those Bible puppet shows for kids on TBN. Wouldn’t that be a hoot??
This article on the great rebate scam is extremely well done, and right on the money. I’ve been through this rebate-collecting crap before, and these companies will drag you through ten layers of hell & hassle before they cough up the money they promise.
