Random Musings

Well, my brief stint at Jury Duty ended earlier today. A lovely case of assault at a wedding reception AKA Just another day in South Carolina.
I'm just thankful no one was shot.
I love those Jacksons; they’re a wacky bunch. Remember when Janet got married, only we didn’t know she was married until she filed for divorce? Yeah, well, she’s kinda done that again, by getting married last year to some entrepreneurial kinda guy.
Why so secretive Janet? Is it about Control? Who knows? Still, she doesn’t take the Crazy Jackson Antics Award this time. No, this time it goes to Jermaine.
He has legally changed his name from Jermaine Jackson to Jermaine Jacksun. I know! From now on, remember to pronounce it correctly: it’s not Jackson it’s Jacksun.  Subtle, no?
A court commissioner signed off on the 58-year-old singer’s petition today, officially making him Jermaine LaJuane Jacksun. Still, Mister Jacksun has no official comment, but a spokesman said, way back when Jackson filed in November to change his name that it was a “personal choice” and “not a big deal.”
Well, that’s true; changing none’s name is a personal choice and it’s no big deal because, well, Jermaine Jackson and Jermaine Jacksun are over.
Inching closer and closer, the Illinois House Executive Committee tonight advanced SB-10, or the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, or as I call it, the It's About Time Act, passed by the Senate last week, in a 6-5 vote.
The bill now proceeds to the full House, and if passed, Governor Pat Quinn has said he will sign it.
Get it done, please. Let's keep those equality states growing.
Madge has got a brand new, um, face. See, that's Old Madonna, there on the left, and Madonna With A New Look, AKA Lifted, Tucked, Botoxed, Peeled, and Filled, on the right.
How does she stay so young?
Aalaya Walker, an 18-year-old Florida woman, is lucky to be alive this week after her friend’s stove went on a shooting rampage inside her home.
See, Walker was visiting JJ Sandy, a friend, in St. Petersburg when they decided they wanted some late-night waffles. Walker began preheating the oven—unaware that Sandy was storing a magazine from his .45-caliber Glock 21 inside.
The magazine exploded, spraying casing fragments at high speed and striking Walker. She managed to pick some of the fragments out of her leg and chest and then took a bus to the hospital, where she was treated and released.
It’s like I’ve been saying for years, ‘Guns don’t kill people. Ovens kill people.’
So, season three of American Horror Story, right?

Something witchy this way comes, and it's bringing back the fabulous Jessica Lange!
And now we get the news that none other than Kathy Bates [Misery] will be on board.
Seriously. Bates'n'Lange.
It doesn't get much better.
Those wacky One Million Moms are at it again.
The group—with numbers about 950,000 shy of a million—are targeting Geico for its latest commercial that features a talking pig.
Now, the OMM aren’t against talking pigs, per se, but are annoyed by this particular Porcine Orator.  See, in the Geico commercial, the pig and his female, human, date are parked on Lover’s Lane and that’s what has the OMM’s Granny Pants in a twist.
See, they think that the talking pig and the human girl date are promoting bestially, and have released a statement:
Geico has succeeded in offending its customers with this inappropriate advertisement. One Million Moms has received numerous complaints because Geico's new commercial plays with the idea of bestiality. Parents find this type of advertising repulsive and unnecessary. Airing a commercial with an animal in it will surely grab children's attention, but this is a horrible commercial for families to see. Geico does not have our children's best interest in mind. The Geico Marketing Team may have thought this would be humorous, but it is disgusting to see how the company takes lightly the act of bestiality. Let Geico know their new ad is irresponsible.
I wonder how many of these kids even knew what bestiality was before the OMM took their crazy public?
Tweet of the Week!

who would have thought that the pope is gay? or van cliburn? or liberace? :)

I am waiting for the other shoe to drop at the vatican.

PS - the group OMM is a misnomer; it should be OTM (one thousand moms).

Right after jury duty, when we found a father guilty of molesting his toddler, I went out to lunch with our office crew and our waitress was the complainant mother of the child. In a town of 35k - who'da thought.

You pic of the gay wedding cake toppers reminded me of an episode of Mary Tyler Moore I watched this week. Ted made he and Georgette dress in tuxes for an awards show. She hated it and told Mary that "they looked like the top of a gay wedding cake!" I love MTM! said...

Is that REALLY Madonna?!

I love that Geico commercial. Fruit Ninja!

Madonna looks scary. Instead of aging gracefully, she's aging.

It's just going to get stranger and stranger with Madge because the older she gets, the less able she is to reinvent herself and the more desperate she is to repackage herself.

robertga99 said...

Hmmmm, maybe that's an altered pic of Madonna. I do still love her sooo. I hope if she gets a lot of work done she can have it done like Jane Fonda and not Joan Rivers.

Why does it bother me when people call her Madge? I HATE THAT! :)

Watch Delaware. It is a real possibility that Delaware will pass Marriage Equality this summer. Bill and I may be part of it. Very exciting for us to be part of something this meaningful.

BTW, that was me who left the previous comment. I don't know why "Anonymous" comes up.

I'll try again. Watch Delaware, we may pass the Marriage Equality Act this summer. Bill and I may be significantly involved. I can't say anything yet on my blog....yet.

The girl and peg commercial is creepy but "promoting bestiality" is kind of a stretch!

Biki said...

When I see Madge nowadays, it's clear she is desperate to look/be young. And all it comes off as is SCARY looking.

That Bette, she is a treat for sure.

Ok, an assault at a wedding? Really? Wow, thats a wedding to remember, yeah?

I don't even know where to begin... But, for starters, I think perhaps you should legally change your blog to "I Shud Be Laffing."
