Zing Tones

OK, I can’t decide. Will the PC police get bent out of shape over this? I gotta admit, it made me laugh. It’s hard to tell if this is a real ad or a parody, but I’m guessing parody.

Looney Tunes

One-time Jon-Benet Ramsey murder suspect and batshit loon John Mark Karr told the Bay Area Reporter this week that the reason he was in Thailand when police caught up with him was that he was seeking gender reassignment surgery to alter his appearance enough to elude capture.

Craigapalooza

Step aside Miss Teen South Carolina, move over Chocolate Rain, YouTube is sagging under the weight of hundreds of Larry Craig parodies, news clips, and late night recaps. Here’s a few of the best ones, including some common sense from Dan Savage, who is interviewed by Rick “Shocking!” Sanchez. Was there comedy before YouTube? It’s hard to remember.

Open Thread Thursday

This morning I had to wait about 10 minutes to buy a bagel at Hot & Crusty, which, by the way, is just about the worst name for a chain of restaurants ever. While in line, I was treated to one of the dumbest/funniest/oldest discussions, with the conversation eventually taking over all the customers. The cashiers were even chiming in. ...

MSNBC’s Tucker Carlson:
I Smack Down Cruising Homos

The gays-as-dirty-potty-cruisers angle seems to be overtaking the coverage of Sen. Craig’s arrest. Last night on MSNBC, Tucker Carlson recounted having, with friends, beaten up a man who allegedly hit on him in a men’s room, much to the hilarity of his co-hosts. Carlson described himself as “the least anti-gay right-winger you’ll ever meet”. Yeah, cuz gay-friendly guys beat up ...

Meanie Dearest

Apparently directly quoting Joan Crawford, mean queen to the end Leona Helmsley leaves nothing in her will to two of her grandchildren “for reasons that are known to them.” Two of her other grandchildren will get $5M each, but her dog, a Maltese named Trouble, gets $12 million. Helmsley’s brother gets a few mil, but only if he takes care ...

HomoQuotable – Sen. Larry Craig

“I don’t know where the Senate’s going to be on that issue of an up or down vote on impeachment, but I will tell you that the Senate certainly can bring about a censure resolution and it’s a slap on the wrist.

Judge: Allen’s Statements Out

A Florida judge has ruled that since Florida legislator Bob Allen was not read his Miranda rights, statements he subsequently made to the police will not be admissible in his trial, including his stated fear of black men and his (as far as I know) previously undisclosed mention that he had “$800 in his car”. Hmm, that seems kinda bribe-ish, ...
