In case you missed it this weekend, Michael Phelps is in trouble for smoking pot. He has since issued a formal apology. On the “Morning Show with Mike and Juliet” this morning, there was a panel of female sportscasters (relatively speaking, they were basically all the token weather girls on football shows plus one chick [...]
Socially conservative Republicans end up visiting prostitutes and/or tapping their feet in airport bathrooms as a means of soliciting homosexual sex much in the same way that redistributionist Democrats seem to be loath to pay their taxes of late. A pox on both their hypocrite houses!

Alexander Waugh, grandson to the author, has a piece up talking about the sex scene in the various adaptations of Brideshead Revisited, including a few choice quotes about what his father, Auberon, thought about the classic BBC miniseries version of the scene: He also claimed to have been distressed at having to watch Quick ‘being [...]
From Sky News: The Honey Monster, Tony The Tiger, and Snap, Crackle and Pop have been branded ‘cartoon villains’ by consumer watchdog Which? for failing to promote healthy eating in children. Other well-loved characters under fire include Moo the Dairylea cow, Coco the Coco Pops monkey and Quicky the Nesquik Bunny. So ha ha, that’s [...]
A disturbing video appears to show that two LA gangsters are now mercenaries fighting on behalf of Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad. Calling themselves “Wino” and “Creeper,” the two gang member. […]
Thanks to the recent Winter Olympics, the city of Sochi has two gorgeous ice hockey arenas. However, it doesn’t have an ice hockey team to play in them. These arenas are just two of Sochi’s many. […]
