Maybe you’ve heard about how one of TV’s funniest shows, NBC’s “Community,” has been shelved for the remainder of the fall season, put on hiatus indefinitely because of poor ratings. Cast members and fans of the show are worried that the mid-season yank may mean the show is never coming back, and are rallying like never before to throw their support behind Joel McHale, Chevy Chase and the rest of the crew attending Greendale Community College. Some of the more vocal fans — the guys over at College Humor — went so far as to team up with the cast to make this funny commercial for the faux school. [College Humor]

For what it’s worth, the mothers depicted on “Toddlers & Tiaras” are not widely considered the bastions of good parenthood. I’ve never actually watched the show, but from what I’ve heard and the clips I’ve seen, the parents of the pageant girls make a damn good case for exactly how not to raise a child. In this sneak peek clip from this week’s new episode, which airs tonight, a mother who home-schools her children reveals just how “dedicated” she is to keeping them social. In fact, she tells the camera, “We have taken our children to several drag shows. I’ve had her performing ‘Poker Face’ on the bar at Applebee’s.” Funny, because that’s exactly how I would socialize my hypothetical home-schooled kids! But don’t worry: “It’s not like people threw dollars at her or anything.” Whew.

“More feather and rhinestones! Better lighting! Bigger production value! Striptease burlesque was invented in America, so it’s not any different. …  If you read anything Gypsy Rose Lee ever wrote, she liked being called a stripper. That word was used back then. I don’t really need any fancy terminology to describe what I do. I never correct someone when they say, ‘She’s a stripper.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I am.’ I am proud of what I do.”

Dita Von Teese is right, of course. Stripping is stripping. But I also found her explanation overly simplistic. I know several burlesque performers, as well as several strippers, and my impression is that burlesque usually begins as a “past time” or “hobby” that involves spending a lot of money on costumes, shoes, hair and makeup, and it can turn into a full-time job for only a select few. My impression of stripping is that it is a full-time job, or a part-time job during school (or whatever), which women get into out of economic necessity more so than a “hobby.” I do not look down on strippers — in fact, one of my fave Frisky commenters is a former stripper! — but I’m definitely more into watching burlesque!

Priceless. Absolutely priceless. Michele Bachmann met an eight-year-old boy named Elijah at a South Carolina book signing, who informed her, “My mommy — Miss Bachmann, my mommy’s gay but she doesn’t need fixing.” Why does anyone need to call her a lyin’ ass bitch when you can just call her a bigot?  [YouTube via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

The Life And Times Of Snookie Lanore

Watch Video

Drag balls are a vibrant part of gay urban culture; the 1990 documentary “Paris Is Burning” perfectly encapsulated the showmanship, extravagance and fierceness of the underground parties, where contestants danced, vogued and walked off in “realness” battles. More than 20 years later, drag balls are still alive and well — and they’ve entranced a younger generation of queer youth. In “The Show Must Go On,” teenage ball emcee Snookie Lanore explains what his Kiki Ball is all about. [Vimeo]
