2 girls, 1 cup reaction

For starters, well, yecch.* That out of the way, let’s talk about this video for a moment. These women are viably con­ven­tion­ally het­ero­sex­u­ally attrac­tive. Buxom, one blond and the other brunette. I men­tion this because it’s clear that the video was intended — scat aside — to appeal to het­ero­sex­ual men. Apart from the parts that have spawned […]

Seriously? After forty years?

I have no idea who Randy Bish is other than that he appears to work at the Pittsburgh Tribune-​​​​Review. And if I were his edi­tor, I’d can him after this lit­tle piece of dri­vel culled from Cagle’s clear­ing­house of edi­to­ri­als (4÷15÷09): I mean come on. Chappaquiddick was 40 years ago. Is this hon­estly the best, the very […]

Going off message

Oh my. Police say an upstate New York tele­vi­sion exec­u­tive who sought to improve the image of Muslims in the media beheaded his wife after she filed for divorce. Yes. Really. I do not believe this is going to do much to reform the image of Muslims. Who knows, though? Maybe he anes­thetized her first or […]

This Kool-​​Aid is way past its expiration date

Over at Cagle’s, Gary McCoy unleashed a kilo­word worth of duh. Either this car­toon is eight years out of date and has essen­tially been reis­sued with a new cap­tion, or McCoy is pathet­i­cally, hope­lessly out of touch. This level of clearly will­ful blind­ness to real­ity just makes my head hurt.

Sexting = child porn?

Setting aside con­cerns such as, what if it was your daugh­ter that did this, on the face of it the actions taken against six Pennsylvania teenagers are just plain damn stu­pid. [S]ix Pennsylvania high school stu­dents are fac­ing child pornog­ra­phy charges after three teenage girls allegedly took nude or semi-​​​​nude phở­tos of them­selves and shared […]

Do not read while eating

It’ll put you right off your feed. “The most urgent threat [Obama] will have to deal with, and other pres­i­dents after him have got to deal with, is an attack on our home­land,” Mr Bush said. Gee, if only Bush had received the same kind of warn­ing when he took over in 2001. Oh. Wait.

They’d better be spending it all on security guards.

Heavily armed secu­rity guards. Banks that are get­ting tax­payer bailouts awarded their top exec­u­tives nearly $1.6 bil­lion in salaries, bonuses, and other ben­e­fits last year, an Associated Press analy­sis reveals. Dear bank execs: Watch your backs.

Yemenis refuse to hold marriage as sacred

For a nation that claims to fol­low the Abrahamic god, even though they’re mis­guided enough to believe the Koran rather than the One True Writ,1 the peo­ple of Yemen are no more respect­ful of the millennia-​​​​old sacred tra­di­tion of mar­riage than are a bunch of rainbow-​​​​flag-​​​​waving fairies out on Castro. What’s got my knick­ers in a knot? The […]

Just a reminder: Morons still walk among us

In case you’re won­der­ing exactly why you should vote, or in case you’re sneak­ing sips of the heady nepenthe of vic­tory already, I should remind you that inbreds, mouth-​​​​breathers and those with a sur­feit of chro­mo­somes still sham­ble among us, as in the case of the Jacksonville (FL) area: After hear­ing about three hours of pub­lic com­ments, Duval […]

How stupid do you have to be? (A rhetorical trifecta)

On Friday night, while the entire uni­verse (or at least a good chunk of the US) was out trick-​​​​or-​​​​treating, a 22-​​​​year-​​​​old ex con with a his­tory of drug con­vic­tions used an AK-​​​​47 to shoot and kill a twelve-​​​​year-​​​​old boy who came knock­ing with his fam­ily. The “ratio­nale” offered by Quentin Patrick was that he’d been robbed before and didn’t […]

Sounds like domestic terrorism to me

This story broke less than an hour ago. Federal agents have bro­ken up a plot to assas­si­nate Democratic pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Barack Obama and shoot or decap­i­tate 102 black peo­ple in a Tennessee mur­der spree, the ATF said Monday. In court records unsealed Monday, fed­eral agents said they dis­rupted plans to rob a gun store and tar­get a pre­dom­i­nantly African-​​​​American high […]

Why do we think religion is necessary, again?

When it’s used to jus­tify set­ting an eleven-​​​​year-​​​​old girl on fire, it’s prob­a­bly time for all of us to rethink the “respect” we give to reli­gion, to its prac­ti­tion­ers, and par­tic­u­larly to lead­ers who endorse extrem­ism in its name. Kill ’em all and let their gods sort ’ em out.
