Cocaine could be the mysterious “something gigantic” being teased about the possible Prince Harry photos or videos that have yet to come out. Rats, I was hoping the “something gigantic” would be Hot Ginge’s royal scepter, not drugs.  The New York Post reports an eyewitness reportedly saw guests in Prince Harry’s Las Vegas hotel suite snorting cocaine and that other people at the party were tripping on hallucinogenic mushrooms and “high on weed.” (No, not high on weed!) The source says  the people in possession of the pictures/videos are skittish “they don’t want to be implicated for any illegal activities.” Which is a good concern to have. It should be noted that the Post claims Prince Harry was not seen using any drugs. Alas, even if “he didn’t inhale,” allegedly having having cocaine, shrooms, and the demon weed in his hotel room would look bad.

I’m still holding out that this is just an awful rumor and there are more naked pics on the way.  [New York Post]

Political theater like the Republican and Democratic National Conventions are a big swamp of blerrgghhh to me. My opinion is that it’s all just a dog-and-pony show and not really the best way to get to know a candidate, their viewpoints, or their cronies at all.

But yes, it’s still a big to-do. What happens is important in the sense that it gets a lot of press coverage. So in the interest of being a well-informed member of the populace, here are 5 things to know about what happened at last night’s Republican National Convention: Keep reading »

The Mindy Project

It’s not easy to make offensive jokes about ignorance. One person’s ignorant joke can be another person’s joke about ignorance and even if your comedy has the best of intentions, it’s frequently misunderstood.  Offensive humor is tricky to balance, but smart humorists can do it well.

I believe Mindy Kaling from “The Office” is extremely smart and that she deserves all the success she’s garnered from her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and her upcoming sitcom “The Mindy Project.” But after watching the pilot for “The Mindy Project,” which is airing on Hulu Plus, I have to say I was disappointed about several squicky jokes made about race.

  • A pic of Ryan Lochte’s penis will go up on the sports blog Deadspin if current negotiations are successful. How did we not see this coming?! Of course Ryan Lochte has dick pics. Deadspin is in negotitions with a person “in possession of a photograph of a penis” who got the photograph from a friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend of Lochte’s ex-girlfriend. And then there’s this very thorough description of the body in the photograph:

    “We have seen the photograph. The body in the photo is shaved like a swimmer’s body, with tan lines from racing trunks. The contours of the torso appear to match the contours of Lochte’s torso, particularly the deep crease across the abdominal muscles, angling up at the sides. The position of the subject/photographer’s right arm makes it impossible to tell whether Lochte’s other distinguishing marks — his Olympic-rings arm tattoo and a prominent pectoral mole — are present.”

    However this is all getting very complicated because Lochte’s “prominent pectoral mole” appears to have been recently removed. It’s a mystery mole! We are going to await Deadspin’s imminent acquisition of the Ryan Lochte penis pics, which will surely give poor Prince Harry the distraction he’s looking for. Win-win for everybody.
