Nobody Works AnyMore: Quintuple Methadone Dose For Pachyderm Junkie

Nobody Works Any More: Animal Edition! First thing, let's get the cuteness out of the way: Okay, on to the news: The elephant in the room. The BBC reports that handlers fed an Asian elephant heroin-spiked bananas, which seems totally irresponsible. Strategically placed stickers and flesh-colored underwear. PETA pays hot, sexy, desperate models to go "nude" for PR animal rights. 13 ...   More

Nobody Works Anymore: Awkward!

So apparently last week was the Republicans' "Let's make awkward appearances on the Elite Media's comedy shows and try to smile as they rip on us" week. It was about as cringe inducing as it sounds. First, Presidential candidate John "Mayday! Mayday!" McCain showed up for a chat with Dave Letterman. Here's a link . It's bit long, so make sure you've got about 25 minutes ...   More

Louis CK talks America off the ledge—then kicks it in the balls.

As the writer-director of the cult, er, “classic” Pootie Tang, Louis CK isn't an artist you'd normally go to for profundity. But at the Newmark Theater last Saturday, the comic did—in his own, c-word and shit-joke laden way—present a rather poignant message about the state of the country. And for a guy who usually bristles to the point of a Tourette's-style breakdown over ...   More

Post-Election Blues Got You Down? Go to Georgia.

Our fearless leader has a new task for you: Go to ...   More

You Stay Classy, Phil Busse: Portland Editor Stealing McCain Yard Signs in Minnesota

You can take the sleazy dude out of the Left Coast, but you can't take the Left Coast out of the sleazy dude. Phil Busse, the erstwhile Mercury editor, mayoral candidate, clairvoyant restaurant reviewer, prison boxing habitué and hilariously overpaid political campaign manager, has taken leave of Portland for a visiting professorship at St. Olaf College in Minnesota—a job that apparently ...   More
