Experimenting w/ Hitler

Q: Hitler – Ripe for comedy or still taboo?



  • Exhibit B: Cats that look like Hitler and a new exhibit in Germany.

A: What is the answer? Is there one? You tell me.


Blogging REDUX and other pretentious comparisons

In Blog Culture on December 24, 2010 at 12:47 am

I may have just had an epiphany. Or an aneurysm. When it comes to sudden flashes on insight (or supposed insight) I can never be sure. What I think just happened was that I realized my blogging sucks.

I thought blogging was supposed to be “news with a personal touch.” (My definition for “blog” as far as I can tell). Like an editorial only with more cursing (and not the Casey Grove “Shit List” kind, even though I feel for the guy). No, blogging is supposed to be more editorial meets diary: Bridget Jones meets Fox News. (That encapsulation just made me shiver…a Fox News comparison? Really, man?)

Blogging is, I think, more of a Barclay’s Commentaries instead of The Bible. I didn’t write the book of life, I just highlight and make notes. So…consider this an upgrade from a Sharpie Permanent Marker to an ACCENT Highlighter. Oh yeah, I just went there.


Did you just hear that? That’s the sound of the ACCENT, baby, and here we go.

Things Not to Say in Bed

In Culture, Humor on December 2, 2010 at 12:42 pm

A few days ago, I posed a Facebook status that read: “Things Not to Say in Bed #1: ‘This…is my boomstick.'”

Over the course of the next day, several of my friends added their own quips to the list and this is the result.

Things Not to Say in Bed

  1. This is my boomstick.
  2. Are you in yet? (Greg)
  3. You don’t have anything do you? (Sam)
  4. Where is it? [From Duke Nukem] (Craig)
  5. I kick ass and use condoms and I’m all outta condoms. (Sam)
  6. Shake it, baby. (Craig)
  7. Head Shot! (James)
  8. You’re almost as good as my ex! (Gibb)
  9. You woke me up for that? (Heather)

Two posts were also made that I thought deserved special attention:

Laurel: “As a girl, I have to say that’s actually something TO say in bed. Unless, of course, we’re talking about a Cleansweep instead of a Firebolt.”
Brenna: “What if the girl is really into Army of Darkness?”

Oddly enough, only one woman joined in with an actual submission. The others were all guys. So, a question to everyone: What do you think that means?

Laurel: “As a girl, I have to say that’s actually something TO say in bed. Unless, of course, we’re talking about a Cleansweep instead of a Firebolt.”

Adventures in blogging: 27bslash6

In Blog Culture, Culture, Humor on December 2, 2010 at 1:36 am

Who: David Thorne is the seemingly annoyed Australian genius behind this website.

What: 27bslash6. It is most assuredly a site to be experienced rather then discussed, but what I will say is that it is one of the funniest things I’ve ever stumbled upon while on the web. When I say that I’m even thinking back to that whole Did you mean: french military defeats? meme from the middle 2000’s.

When: Thorne began his website in 2006 but gained a more global audience in 2008 after this article began to circulate.

Where: If you missed it the first time: 27bslash6. My all time favorite, however, has got to be either “I have read your website and it is obviously that your a foggot.” or Missing Missy.

Why: Because this is a fabulous humor site wherein your posterior will, most likely, be laughed off.
