Nobody Works Anymore: Freaky Friday Edition

"Man Skin": Okay, so maybe it's time to visit Dad's old aftershave after all. Personally, the jalapeno man-popper makes me hot. "Ceiling Cat": or God. You decide. (Dlisted.com) Forget The Texas goat-sucker: Who doesn't love lil' puppy-wuppies—oh, god... it's the chupacabra! He just wanted the ring back. But what's with the Samurai sword?

Merkley: Rhymes With Barkley?

Following Jeff Merkley's condemnation of robocalls and subsequent embrace of them, we have this tangentially related robo-tidbit. Tipster Glen Carson alerted us to an exceptionally lame robo-call message, left on his answering machine, which paraphrases Merkley's Georgia gaffe and directs listeners to "hear the whole story" at a website called Freedom's Watch. The mocking voice declares that ...   More

The VP Debate: Living Room Theater Laugh-o-Meter

It was fitting that the crowd at Living Room Theater didn't make a drinking game out of chugging every time Sarah Palin said "maverick." We would have been sauced to the gills. But there'd be puking in the aisles. That almost happened anyway, mind you. By the eighth time Palin uttered the M-word during tonight's vice presidential debate, the audience was groaning like a herd of rutting moose. The ...   More

Nobody Works Anymore: CYA L8TR TRL

OMG! Like, I totally just found out that MTV is getting rid of TRL! WTF? That was, like, so totally the last place on MTV that I could, like, tune in to watch music videos and stuff, and it had so many great moments. I wonder if they're like, going to replace it with some reality show or something that, like, lets regular people live like they're rich and famous or something? 'Cause I would so ...   More
