Lazy Twitter Week: Day Two

« August 2013 »

NOTE: This is also seeming like a good time to get the site up to some kind of recent standard, Drupal-wise. This will be awkward and ugly until it's done, but you never came here for the cutting edge web design anyway, so suck it up.

Memo to the hundred-and-forty-first character: YOU ARE DUMB.

With the heat wave and some stuff with my schedule and some general-purpose wingnut fatigue, I'm going to sort of take the week off. But lest you be bereft of YAD-y goodness during that time, and in another attempt to promote the @youaredumb Twitter account and crack the 500-follower barrier for the first time ever, I'll be Tweeting stuff during the day, then providing you non-Twitter types with what you're missing the next day. So, to borrow a line from Cash Levy, TAKIN' IT TO THE TWEETS:

Good news, Middle East! Looks like we’re a-fixin’ to save you with our Saving Bombs again. Try to show some goddamned gratitude this time.

If Donald Trump didn’t want people to think Trump University was fake, he should have put more thought into naming it.

I don’t care what Miley shakes either way, but could we save the term “slut-shaming” for incidents of actual female sexuality, Internet?

Burger King is introducing the French Fry Burger, a burger with four french fries on it, because fuck you, America, that’s why.

When we freedombomb Syria later this week, know in advance that “we had to do something” will be the justification whether it works or not.

In Texas, a bunch of anti-vaccine churchies are in the midst of a measels outbreak. The word for what you just felt is SCRATCHENFREUDE.

I’m pretty sure “an attempt to set the world record for twerking” was in at least one of the dystopian SF novels I read in the 80s.

Big Hollywood may have reached their McCarthyite guilt-by-association apotheosis with the headline “Communists Heart The Butler”.
