The Silly season is upon us as these story prove:
Item: I’m too sexy for this paper.
I know that different people find different things suggestive but C’Mon guys
When Women’s Wear Daily consulted a coterie of photo editors and designers about why the image is “destined to be one for the history books,” Clinton was foremost in their responses.
“The Hillary Clinton expression is the one that holds the photograph fully,” Time’s photo director told the magazine. “You can see 10 years of tension and heartache and anger in Hillary’s face,” Conde Nast’s Scott Dadich agreed.
Turns out she was probably just coughing during that crucial moment captured by White House photographer Pete Souza. But nevertheless, the image still proved a bit too racy for at least one of the many newspapers that printed it.
That would be the Ultra-Orthodox Hasidic broadsheet Der Tzitung, published in Brooklyn. The paper photoshopped Clinton, as well at the only other woman who could be seen in the room–Audrey Tomason, the national director of counterterrorism–out of the frame.
Far be it from me to laugh at someone’s religious beliefs but the idea that the image of Hillary Clinton’s would violate the “laws of modesty” is what you would call an automatic script generator for comics all over the country.
Item: Bristol Bristol Bristol
I don’t have much use for people with Palin Derangement Syndrome, I also have slightly less use for members of a Palin cult, but the idea that their might be an audience for a Bristol Palin reality show is scary:
The 20-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin is moving in with fellow “Dancing with the Stars” season 11 alumnus Kyle Massey, 19, and his brother Chris, 21, for a reality show following the controversial single mom as she works at a small charity.
And Biography channel is drawn to this show?
“Bristol is the kind of personality BIO is drawn to,” McKillop said in a statement. “Her personal life has been playing out in the media for several years but this will be the first time she’s opening up her real life, with her son and her friends the Massey Brothers.“
They are drawn to a single mother living with two guys while working for a charity? ARRUGH!
There was a time when the words “Bristol Fashion” signaled quality. I don’t think that’s the word I’d use here.
Item: Good evening I’m the dish of the day:
How many levels of wrong are there with this story:
A CANNIBAL has been arrested after his “dinner guest” changed his mind and called the cops.
The would-be victim from Switzerland answered an internet advert from the 43-year-old man seeking someone who would agree to be killed, cooked and eaten
Think about it, who answers an ad volunteering to be slaughtered and eaten? This is the ultimate expression of the Darwin awards.
Exit question, if this took place in a country that allows assisted suicide would this be illegal?
