When I heard yesterday that New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie made a blowjob joke while campaigning for Mitt Romney, I thought it just sounded, at worst, crude. (And embarrassing for Romney’s squeaky-clean Mormon image, although that’s another story.) Christie was rallying for Romney at a campaign stop in Exeter, New Hampshire, when some women started chanting about jobs going down. After a few distracting chants, Christie says, “You know, something may go down tonight but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart.” Keep reading »
In a completely unofficial and gross experiment, one brave (or bored?) Redditor put McDonald’s and KFC fries in airtight jars for three years just to see how they would age. Well, no doubt Mickey D’s fries have better genes. Or do they? The French fry researcher points out that “this test is meaningless [because] too many variables are unknown to make any sort of call.” Fry guy goes on to say, “If anything, I’d be more afraid of the KFC fries because this indicates they might have been contaminated with bacteria or mold or were improperly cooked.” But wait, does the lack of mold fur on the Mickey D’s batch mean that there was some kind of crazy synthetic chemical that they’re treated with? Never mind. I don’t want to know. It doesn’t matter. I’m never eating fast food French fries again. [The Daily What]
In recent weeks, your love of all things draggy and sparkly may have momentarily given you a brain fart — seeing all those mentions of Ron Paul everywhere certainly did remind us of a certain leggy ’90s icon. But no, as much as we wish it were true, it’s Ron Paul that’s running for president — not RuPaul. Ru made a special surprise stop in New Hampshire this weekend to clarify that he shouldn’t be confused with Ron.
“I’m not really a political person by nature,” he said, “though stepping out of the house in six inch heels and a wig is a political statement of sorts.” And would it really be all that weird for Ru to run? “This country was founded by a bunch of men in wigs,” he continued. It does seem strange, though — “You better work” seems oddly prescient given our current financial crisis. Maybe Ru should reconsider. [Raw Story]
