The last laugh’s on us…
While we all enjoyed a good laugh at Princess Beatrice over her now infamous wedding hat, turns out the princess is using all the media attention her millinery masterpiece garnered for a good cause. The creation has been put up for sale on eBay. Described as a “unique celebratory headpiece,” as of Saturday 3 bidders were competing for the hat with the top bidder offering 81,000 pounds ($131,000). The princess is donating the proceeds to UNICEF and Children in Crisis.
Good for you, Beatrice!
Of course the big news of the week was
’s love child… Arnold
Seriously, guys. If you’re going to cheat on your wife, couldn’t you at least wrap that thing up. I have to say the only thing about this whole affair that surprises me at all is that it took Maria 25 years to figure out her husband was a douche bag.
The Steaming Pile of Shit Award…
Goes to those homophobes in the Tennessee State Senate for their approval of a ban on the teaching of homosexuality in grades K-8.
Notwithstanding the fact that it was never taught in any classroom in the state to begin with, this legislation goes that all important extra mile by forbidding teachers from even discussing the fact that some people are gay.
So, there will be no Homosexuality 101 for
kids, which is sad when you think about it. Wherever will they learn how to be gay? How will they compete against the more well-educated gays of other states for jobs in fashion and musical theater? Tennessee
We all know that in order to grow up a successful gay you need to get a solid start in grade school.
Pity the poor Secret Service guy…
… whose shit job it is to monitor Fox News all day long. Apparently, unschooled in the ways of Twitter, the agent sent out this tweet believing he was on his personal account.
The Secret Service issued this response: "The tweet did not reflect the views of the U.S. Secret Service and it was immediately removed. We apologize for this mistake, and the user no longer has access to our official account."
Too late. The tweet had instantly been retweeted and screen-grabbed by the Service’s 18,000 followers.
Finally, from Katie Goodman of Broad Comedy, a little tune for those days when you get so down because everything is so fucked up…
At least waitresses get tips. Writers get nothing if we don’t know you were here. Whattaya say?
