Vince Young Drunk and Topless at Sausage Fest

Vince Young Topless

There are pictures of Tennessee Titan quarterback Vince Young topless at a club getting drunk with mostly other topless dudes around.  I have no problem with a professional football player, an NFL star even, getting drunk and partying with his boys (ie: Cedric Benson & Vikings Boat Trip).  It gets a little weird when the dudes are indoors and start taking off their shirts with no few women around.  The story is chuckle worthy at best if you read… nothing to see here people, move along.

Party on Vince.

New York Yankee Jason Giambi Shares Lucky Thong

Jason Giambi lucky thong

New York Yankee Jason Giambi has a lucky thong.  That thong is gold.  He wears the man thong for luck when he is down.  He has shared the thong with Derek Jeter and Johnny Damon among other professional baseball players.  Everyone has taken notice.  Mike Mussina put a sign on his locker that says “pitchers need thongs too”.  Sadly the thong may have lost its magic touch as Jason Giambi is hitting below the Mendoza Line.  That does not keep Jason from bringing that thong along just like he did when doing poorly for the Oakland A’s and presumably when he was in front of the grand jury for the Balco steroid case a few years ago.

That is the baseball / man thong  equivalent of See Spot Run.

Project Vote Smart

Maybe everyone else already knew about this, but I found this great website this morning called Project Vote Smart. They have a lot of helpful information on political candidates. Here are the main pages for the presidential races:

McCain
Obama
Clinton

And here is the information they provide for the candidates’ voting records:

McCain
Obama
Clinton

This kind of information is really helpful because of how difficult it can be to get an “accurate” picture of a candidate from reading print media and watching TV. And for the most part the “debates” are a joke and basically useless for forming an educated opinion of who is the best candidate.

Gotta get me some ed-juh-muh-cay-shun!

Apologies for the long post, but this shit makes me want to vomit.

On April 23, 2008 Congress blocked consideration of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, in a 56-42 cloture vote. (You can see who voted for/against the bill here.) This act was in response to a Supreme Court decision that Lilly Ledbetter, who had worked for Goodyear Tires for nearly 20 years, was not entitled to the $223,776 in back pay and more than $3 million in punitive damages that had been awarded her by a jury of her peers. Ledbetter had received two performance-based awards, yet when she approached retirement, she was informed by an anonymous letter that she was making approx. $560 less per-month than the lowest paid man at Goodyear.

The Supreme Court determined that she was not eligible for the damages awarded because she did not file her lawsuit within 180 days of being issued the paycheck reflecting the discrimination. As Gail Collins of the New York Times points out in a great op-ed column on the subject, “In other words, pay discrimination is illegal unless it goes on for more than six months.” Bullshit.

The legislation in question would have allowed potential plaintiffs to go to court over pay discrimination, even if the requisite six months had passed.

Now the fact that this legislation failed in the Senate is bad enough. It’s rare that employees know what other employees are making, and if they find out, it’s not normally within the first 180 days of their employment. But what makes this all the worse is that presidential nominee John McCain failed to even show up to vote on this important issue.

Think that’s bad? It gets even worse. When asked about his absence, McCain defended his decision, claiming that he wouldn’t have voted for the LLFPA anyway, since it “opens us up for lawsuits, for all kinds of problems and difficulties.” DUH. If women, who currently make an average of $.77 to every $1.00 earned by male employees, were to be able to sue their employers for pay discrimination, there would likely be a lot more “problems and difficulties” for the douchebags who have failed to pay them fairly.

But it gets even worse. McCain went on to claim that women need more “education and training, particularly since more and more women are heads of their households, as much or more than anybody else. And it’s hard for them to leave their families when they don’t have somebody to take care of them.”

Wait a second. In a nation where women make up at least 57% of most college campuses, and where more than half of all associates, bachelors, masters, and doctorate degrees are awarded to women, McCain thinks that we need to get more “education and training”? As far as I know, McCain received no more than a Bachelors Degree, so maybe he’s the one who needs to get a little more education on the issues. (I apologize for the obvious ad hominem, but seriously.)

Apparently John McCain thinks most employed women look something like this:

An an educated woman, I am pissed. If you want to sign the MoveOn.org petition calling out John McCain on this issue, you can go here. They also encourage educated women to upload their anonymous CVs to show JM that we’re not as dumb as we (apparently) look.

Get Pubic Lice in the Mail Not Just From Dirty Girls

Mailorder Pubic Lice

There is a website called LoveBugz.net that apparently sends pubic lice to you via mail if you send them your address and a dollar. “Bug Girl” called the dude’s bluff and “Bugger” responded by sending her a package (by way of a reporter). The photos she took are pretty funny since you can see the hair off the dude’s ball bag and the jank instructions (highlighted above).

It is relieving to know that you can lice the same way you can get dog poop – sent right to your home. Before you needed to brush up with one of Rob & Big‘s Dirty Girls to get crabs and STD’s.

From the FAQ:

If you’re a pretty girly in the metro area and you wanna get polinated, then email me and maybe we can get together.

They gotta have someplace to live. Birds gotta fly, fish gotta swim, lice gotta orbit uranus. Like the saying goes, one in the bush is better than none in the hand.

Americans Find Child Touching to be Wrong, the Dutch Make it a Performance

VH1 Best Week Ever found and posted a video (previously found by videogum.com in their “that’s your boyfriend” series) that accomplishes one of two things:

  1. The United States of America are very different as a cultural and censor things, or look down on things, that should be considered artistic. aka Loosen Up U.S.A, this video is weird to only YOU!
  2. Any culture, person, group, entity, douchebag, etc. that finds this video mildly entertaining, sexual, funny, cute, or anything other than absolutely disturbing has SERIOUS issues.

The video is of a Dutch entertainer named Paul de Leeuw (looks like Andy Richter) serenading a young boy on a stage. Then he starts kissing and licking the kid and it turns into a really weird pedophile sodomizing piece. VH1 prefaces the video like this:

WARNING: The video you are about to watch is easily one of the most disturbing, chill-inducing thing you will ever see, 2 Girls 1 Cup included. It is the essence oil of nightmares. You have been alerted.

So don’t watch this video… but at least read the awesome comments taken from a different Paul de Leeuw video found on YouTube screencapped below.

I don’t get it.  Maybe it is “perfectly normal”.  I don’t know anything of the guy, but it sure is weird to me.
