Guinness beer fans the flames of homophobia
with its new St. Patrick’s Day commercial with a lesson on how men can hug other men without looking … gay
. (Because arching your butt backwards in an A-frame hug doesn’t draw more attention to it at all!) I know this commercial is a “joke” as far as 12-year-old-boy-humor is concerned. Alas, giving men a hard time for showing affection because they may look gay is neither funny nor original.
I mean, really: The lessons for men about maleness in this commercial are about as subtle as a piece of poster board that simply says “Lite beer = fa**ot.” Hey, Guinness, don’t steal that. [Queerty] Keep reading »
This is a joke, right? A lovely UCLA
student — identified by The Daily What as poli-sci undergrad Alexandra Wallace — took to the Intertubes to bitch about Asians
. (You know, because they’re a monolithic group.) According to Alexandra, UCLA accepts “hordes of Asians” every year — which is fine
— who don’t have “American manners” when it comes to talking on the phone in the library. Entitlement! Obliviousness! Hedging her racist comments with “you guys know I’m not really politically correct”! This woman’s career in politics is golden.
After the jump, one of those gabby Asians responds to Alexandra with his own video about white girls in the library: Keep reading »

Kunkel allegedly placed the photos on shelves in the cosmetic department and on cars in the store’s parking lot on Feb. 28, The News-Messenger reports. Read more… Keep reading »
This is what Tim Burton was working on long before he was the Tim Burton. In 1976, he submitted this children’s book, The Giant Zlig, to an editor at Walt Disney Productions for publishing.
I am submitting this book in hopes that you might consider publishing it. The book has been layed [sic] out in rough form, and I would be glad to make any changes that you feel would be nessecary [sic]. I would hope to hear from you either way. Thankyou.
Sadly, The Giant Zlig was rejected. You can see his rejection letter here. I bet that editor feels like an ass. Aren’t we glad he kept at it? Take note. Perseverance, people. [Letters of Note] Keep reading »
“I’m all for energy conservation … [But] I think there should be some self-examination from the administration on the idea that you favor a woman’s right to an abortion, but you don’t favor a woman or a man’s right to choose what kind of lightbulb, what kind of dishwasher, what kind of washing machine.”
— Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is upset that hippie BS like “environmental conservation” prevents him from owning a powerfully-flushing super-toilet, which is just downright unfair because women are allowed to terminate unwanted pregnancies. How can you argue with logic like that? Abortion: it’s like choosing a brand of lightbulb! [Talking Points Memo] Keep reading »
