injaynesworld it's a kick-ass "Sunday Recap..."

First of all take your gaze over to my left side bar.  Scroll down…lower… lower… there.   Little ol’ injaynesworld was awarded the  2010 Newbie Blog Award from Studio 30+.  To all who voted for me, thank you so much.   I’m sincerely humbled and thrilled.   

And now to this week’s news.   Get comfortable.  If I’ve done my job, there’s something here to offend everyone. 


Sir Elton John is being demonized for suggesting in an interview with Parade magazine that Jesus Christ may have been gay:  “I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems. On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving.”

As expected, the religious right is going nuts with this one.  I say so what if Christ and the Disciples had a boys club going on.  How does that taint his message?    What happened to “Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself?”  I don’t recall there being any exceptions to that.   It wasn’t “Love Thy Neighbor – unless he’s gay then all bets are off.”   And how about “Judge not lest ye be judged?”  There is little that can rile my ass more than hypocrisy.


And speaking of hypocrisy, welcome to “The Hypocrisy Hall of Shame.”   This week marked the one-year anniversary of the  American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, aka the Stimulus bill, a bill that every single Republican in Congress decried and voted against.  Fast forward to today and these shining examples of Republican hypocrisy:

It’s funny how the Stimulus is the root of all evil when the money is going to someone else’s state, but when it’s coming to yours… not so much.  Now everyone is entitled to their opinion.  Agree with the ARRA, don’t agree.   Knock yourself out.   Makes no difference to me.   Just don’t be a hypocrite about it.  To find out if your representative is a member of the “Hypocrisy Hall of Shame” go to this website to view a complete list of these pinnacles of virtue. 


On Thursday some self-professed, anti-government whack job flew his plane into the IRS building in Texas causing all sorts of death and destruction, but you wouldn’t know it by the news on Friday when all cameras were focused on the beginning of the long-awaited Tiger Woods Apology Tour.  Notably absent at his side was wife, Elin – praise the Lord. I cringe when I see the wives of these cheaters “standing by their men” like some kind of Tammy Wynette zombies while these guys deliver their public mea culpas.   Among the carefully selected audience at the meticulously staged Tiger Fest, however, was his mom -- proving that a mother’s work truly is never done and your children are never too old to humiliate you. 

So was he contrite enough?   Should he have worn a tie?   What did his body language really mean?  These were the questions debated ad nauseum on all-day, all-Tiger TV.  Meanwhile 12 NATO soldiers died in Afghanistan


More spotlight on celebrities…

Jon Gosslin’s ex tells the world he has a small dick – or is a small dick – can never get that one straight.  

John Mayer talks sex with ex’s, joys of masturbation, and keeping his lily-white man-handle far, far away from the private parts of black women, while spouting the “N” word because he thinks it’s cool… and this was the guy that little Miss-She’s-Been-So-Wronged-Boo-Fucking-Hoo Jennifer Aniston dated not once, but twice.    I am soooooo “team Jolie.”

And remember this cute kid?  

He’s now this cute kid.  

In a courtroom on Friday, former "Family Ties" actor Brian Bonsall pleaded not guilty to an assault charge and a failure- to-report charge involving another case.  Bail was set at $10,000.  Bonsall is accused of repeatedly hitting a friend in the head with a broken wooden stool in December.
Another proud parental moment...


Finally, this week’s “You Can’t Make This Shit Up” Award goes to…

A Texas Christian University student who suffered burns when his peers branded his buttocks was found to have participated in the act willingly and no charges will be filed. The kid had Greek symbols from his fraternity and a sorority branded on his ass and needed surgery after suffering second-and third-degree burns.
Police concluded that this little genius asked to be branded, was awake when it happened, and continued to party and dance afterward.  

I’m thinking Jesus being gay is the least of the religious right’s problems.


A big thank you to uber artist and friend, Jan Whitby, for not only the design of my review blog and cute button over in my right sidebar, but also for designing the “YCMTSU” trophy pictured above.  If you were a "Bionic Woman" fan, Jan played the original Fembot in the “Kill Oscar” episodes.  Visit her fan site here

So who have I offended with today’s Sunday Recap?   You know what to do…
