Random Musings

You know that “TrusTed” logo? Well, I like “DestesTed” better, but this is good, too.

See, it turns out that when you Google “TRUS” you get this:
"A transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) is an ultrasound technique that is used to view a man's prostate and surrounding tissues. The ultrasound transducer (probe) sends sound waves through the wall of the rectum into the prostate gland, which is located directly in front of the rectum."
Yup, that’s the very top Google result.

So, basically Cruz’s new logo is about an anal probe and the name ‘Ted.’ And I thought Frothy Mix was good …
I didn’t watch the Superbowl … I’m not into volleyball … but if I had, I would‘a been less interested in the game and more interested in the newest internet sensation: Hot Ref!

It seems Twitter declared Super Bowl referee Clete Blakeman, the 51-year-old former University of Nebraska-Lincoln Huskers quarterback to be “Daddy Ref,” and the true winner of the Super Bowl.

Though I wonder what in the world that hand gesture in that first picture means …
So February 8th was Chinese New Year, and this year is the Year of the Gorilla. But a San Francisco-based Chinese graphic designer kinda went a little sexual with a poster for the celebration.
Or maybe it’s just me … ?
A couple of more things about the Superbowl:

Lady Gaga can sing and rocked the National Anthem — picture Madge singing it … don’t cringe — and Gaga did so with her regular, albeit sequined, clothes.

As for Beyoncé … she basically ripped off Michael Jackson, strippers, Britney Spears and the Black Panthers while flipping her weave and lip-syncing.

Bruno was good, but why was Chris Martin there? When he popped up between Bruno and The Weave, he looked like a nerdy high school kid trying to photobomb the cool kids.

But then there’s this, too: Red Lobster has reported a boost in sales following release of Beyoncé’s new track “Formation” in which she sings:
“When he f*ck me good I take his a** to Red Lobster.” 
Wow. That’s talent. Illiterate talent. Stupid talent. Pandering talent. With a weave. And a twerk.
So ... Carly Fiorina suspended her campaign? I'd always assumed she'd just fire it ... or ship it overseas.
I am loving American Crime — not to be confused with American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson which is also goodGreat storytelling; great cast; great acting; interesting topic: can a man be raped? And what if he’s gay?

But, it also features one Andre Benjamin who is just delicious.

Just sayin’.
Well, it looks like the Ali Forney Center’s Love Thermometer blew past the $200,000 goal in their campaign to purchase Harlem’s hate church, which is scheduled to go to public auction on February 24th.

AFC founder Carl Siciliano has noted, even if the purchase doesn’t go through, the contributions are desperately needed for our LGBT homeless brothers and sisters.

Win … win.
Chris Christie also suspended his campaign because Krispy Kreme is doing a Two-Fer on the Jersey Shore.

Or something …

I assumed after the SB folks realized what Coldplay was, and that it would NEVER be a rousing show, that they had to get 'alternates'. And yes yes yes on the SB Ref. The only good part of the game.

krispy kreme & a jelly donut - perfect together! I wonder if he knows where NJ is, since he seems to spend so little time there...

Apologies for being so graphic, but why do so many of the Republican candidates look like they're doing a poo, each being at various stages of the process? This Cruz chappie here on his poster looks like he's just released one and is contemplating whether there's another on the way.

Just a few notes:

TrusTED!!! I LOVE this!

You "wonder what in the world that hand gesture... means"? Really? Please. You know EXACTLY what it means.

Someone needs to please 'splain to me the Year of the Gorilla art.

As for me, I really like Coldplay. I wonder if the only reason Chris Martin gets so much shit is because he married Gwyneth Paltrow in the first place (and then consciously uncoupled).

The first motion the hot daddy ref was making is "holding", which is a foul and usually ends up with the team that illegally held the opposite teams player loses yardage.

and just like that, you found out that biki is a football nerd....

Or there's a truss! Perhaps Ted has a hernia?
