White men have much to discuss about mass shootings – The Washington Post

White men have much to discuss about mass shootings – The Washington Post.

Go read the article. It is, of course, complete bullshit. Who is shooting all those black kids in Chicago?  In case you were wondering as of three days ago there have been 67 murders so far this year in Chicago. This is down from 111 for the same period last year. Don’t you think we’d know a lot more about these murders if it were white people shooting blacks?

I do.

The body count in Newtown was 26 victims. Tragic, yes.

HT: Sailer.

Sr. Assistant General Manager, Men’s Top & Bottoms

That’s a funny job title.

I’m not remotely qualified.

The Sun’s best cleavage poll

The Brits know how to run an online newspaper.

There were only five entrants to the contest and I never have hear of two of them, and am vaguely aware of a third.

What does that say about me?

Added: In case you are wondering why there is no picture accompanying this post, The Sun does not allow right clicks on their photos. Like I said, they know how to run an online newspaper.

You need to click on the link just for the photos.

Going through this photo collection at Slate, reminded me of this post which provided a link to this collection of photos.

Ashley Judd is not running

Darn.

A senate race by Ashley Judd would have produced high comedy.

Gerard on Gay Marriage

In a great post on the inevitability of gay marriage, Gerard goes on to write about the also inevitable coming wave in gay divorce. One part that I think he’ll get exactly right:

Children adopted by gay male couples will probably be treated in a kindly and caring manner during the divorce, but when it comes to the pets, get ready for the mother of all cat-fights over the puppy or the pussy.

Children born to lesbian couples will probably fare less well. Besides a lifelong predilection for comfortable shoes, the best they can hope for is for the courts to okay that they can, should they elect to do so, live with their sperm donor.

You only have to possess a modicum experience with a caring mother to know that last paragraph is true.

But Gerard also points the way to what could certainly be one of the best things to happen to the entertainment industry in years:

“Gay Divorce Court!” would be a reality show with more legs than a queer centipede. “Gay Divorce Court!” is appointment television that could launch a million office pools, and probably some Vegas-sized lines for the inevitable Brad Pitt vs. Tom Cruise de-fornication fiasco.

This post was put up Gerard originally in 2006. It reads as though it were written yesterday. As is said, do go read the whole thing.

The Things you Find on the Internet

I was going through LinkedIn today, looking for potential people to add to my network. It’s something I’m doing to aid my job search. I found it interesting to know I’m a 2nd degree link to the owner of this company:

I’m certain SWMBO will find this entertaining too.

It’s a legitimate business, they do uniforms for waitresses that work in, uh…, provocative environments. You know, family restaurants. Yeah, that’s it.
