We Are All Sasha Fierce

Another reason I’m glad I’m a gay: we make the best signs.

Though I’d be remiss if I didn’t include this too. Because, for realz.


Yes, I get that blogging is a supremely self-centered activity. “Read me! Read me! Look at me! I’m interesting!” And I am the first to admit that I’m not especially interesting – I’d even venture to say I’m quite dull.

However, I am also hy-fucking-larious.  I constantly crack people up – not least of all myself. And I just stumbled across this long ago comment I made on some blog or another – and once again cracked myself the fuck up. I mean, COME ON. If you  don’t think this is the funniest thing you’ve seen today, well then, I feel sorry for you.

Quelle langue!

Was having a discussion re. the names of the Seven Dwarves in French (as one does) and discovered that Dopey is called “Simplet” – which translates as “simple-minded” and seems rather close to “simpleton.” Doesn’t have quite the same adorable ring as “dopey,” does it? Pauvre Simplet!

Quote of the Day

Today on The Hairpin, Rose Surnow posted a “Reverse Bucket List” – that is, things she never wants to do before she dies. And as amusing as the list is, commenter applestoapples had the best addition to said list:

Read “Eat, Pray, Love”

Yes, this.

“A non-stop waterfall of chocolate decadence…”

Ironically, this is also a side-effect of eating at Golden Corral.

Other names considered for this tempting treat: Chocolate Geyser, Fudge Freefall, The Hershey Highway, Promenade of Poop.

And how much you wanna bet that patrons regularly dunk their Buffalo wings and tacquitos into this river of “decadence”?


And it’s even more delicious looking in real-life!

What a maroon!

You know, I think this is the first time I’ve agreed with her – things really were much better in California 30 years ago.

And here’s her latest campaign commercial.

I am hy-larious

So, Tron Legacy is coming out in December. And Disney (being Disney after all) is doing a full-court press with merchandising for the film – including these extremely glamorous shoes – priced at $795, no less.

So, Jezebel had a post about all of the Tron merchandise being marketed to women. And I’m sorry, but my comment on that post should’ve not only earned me a star – it should’ve been comment of the day! To wit:

Um, sorry, but that shoe is not being marketed to women – it’s being marketed to Tronsvestites.

Thank you! I’ll be here all week!

Correction of the Day

As a self-satisfied atheist, I quite enjoyed the NYT article the other day, in which it was revealed that atheists and agnostics scored highest in a test about knowledge of religion.

Though I enjoyed the following correction even more:

An article on Tuesday about a poll in which Americans fared poorly in answering questions about religion misspelled the name of a beatified Roman Catholic nun and Nobel Peace Prize winner. She was Mother Teresa, not Theresa.

Jhesus Christ! I guess some what-research-has-proved-to-be-stupid-Christian wrote the original article.

Quote of the Day

Rapper Kid Cudi addresses his recent arrest for possession of “liquid cocaine:”

Just for the record, it bugged me out that people said it was liquid cocaine. No, I’m just fucking rich, and my blow comes in a jar. There was no liquid in it—that shit makes no sense.
