What is Barbie Doing?…Duh. She’s Breastfeeding Fool!

barbie-breastfeeding

*Who knew? Barbie has developed tits and she’s putting them to good use. A smart mom and artist named Betty Strachan came up with a great way to educate children using something every little girl plays with.

Dolls.

Strachan has created a fine niche for herself as an artist, custom designing Barbie dolls by painting new faces on them.

Wait. Sidebar. Can we assume she has gotten permission from Mattel?

Anyway, the talented artist calls her new creation, “Mamas Worldwide Barbie.”

Nice. Continue reading

*Folks ain’t feelin’ an administrator at Ohio State University after she posted a plea on Facebook asking for people to show compassion for the man who drove through a crowd of students on Monday and started slashing them with a butcher knife.

They believe she is showing more concern for the attacker than she is for those he attacked.

Identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan, eleven people were hospitalized, students fled for their lives — barricading themselves in classrooms — and the man was killed within a minute by a campus police officer. Continue reading

This 7-Time Lottery Winner (He’s Real, Y’all) Shows Us How to Win Too!

richard-lustig-closeup

*Be warned. For the most part, I’m going to shut up and allow YOU to watch the videos. They’re self explanatory. I have not won a lottery even once. At least nothing worth mentioning. Well wait, there was that one time when I bought a scratch off and every number I picked was a winning one.

But it only amounted to $50 total.

This man named Richard Lustig has won the lottery, including scratch offs, SEVEN FREAKIN’ TIMES. He has been all over TV. He’s on Wikipedia. And of course, his strategy is considered controversial.

But who cares, that’s what the “experts” call anything they can’t figure out, yes?

Over a 17 year period and 7 Jackpots later, Richard Lustig has won over $1,052,205.58.

The only tip I will share from Mr. Lustig is NEVER BUY QUICK PICKS.

OK wait. I’ll share one more from him. But then you will need to watch BOTH videos to learn more.

Mr. Lustig says, don’t buy different multiple tickets. For example, don’t go to the counter and say: Gimme two of those and one of those. INSTEAD, if you are going to buy say, 10 tickets, choose 10 of the same kind.

Hey, I was taught early to only seek advice from those who have proven their method. After all, you wouldn’t ask for financial advice from a poor person would you? Continue reading

Before “Movember,” Men Grew Beards To Prove They Were Old Enough To Vote

beard-55

*If one of the previously clean shaven men in your life is suddenly sporting a beard, chances are he’s joined the “Movember” movement.  Those of us who’ve got it like that grow out our beards each November to show our support for a variety of men’s health causes.

Get it?  “Men” + “November” = Movember.

But over a hundred years ago, men stopped shaving in November for a different reason: to prove they were old enough to vote!  

According to a new book, The Virgin Vote: How Young Americans Made Democracy Social, Politics Personal, and Voting Popular in the Nineteenth Century, men grew their “facial foliage” to prove they were adults and not “beardless boys.” Continue reading

Look! Up In The Sky! It’s the Biggest, Brightest Supermoon in Nearly 70 Years

*November 14th’s supermoon will be the second of three we will have been treated to at the end of this year, with the first having shown up October 16 and the last one due on December 13.

Pardon me?  What’s that?  Could it be that you don’t know what a “supermoon” is?  Where have YOU been?

(I’m fronting.  I didn’t either!) Continue reading

Warner Bros Studio Tour Hollywood Is An Absolute Thrill

Via green screen technology, you can drive a Batpod or ride on Harry Potter's Broom during the impressive Warner Bros Studio Tour in Hollywood.
Via green screen technology, you can drive a Batpod or ride on Harry Potter’s Broom during the impressive Warner Bros Studio Tour in Hollywood.  Yes, I got on that broom!

*SPOILER ALERT: Skip the next paragraph if you don’t want to hear about THE CAPE.

Warner Bros Studio Tour has it: THE CAPE worn by the late Christopher Reeve in the film that started it all for me, 1978’s Superman: The Movie. It’s displayed at the end of the tour, in all of its glory. I almost passed out when I saw it.  Conservatively, I have seen that movie well over 100 times.

There are many capes on display during the impressive three hour Warner Bros Studio Tour, belonging to a wide assortment of superheroes, swashbucklers, and adolescent wizards. But far beyond the fantasy and comic book genres, if you’re interested in the “behind the scenes” of Hollywood, there’s no better place to spend a few hours than touring the working production facility behind what’s arguably the most heralded movie studio in history.

How Much Halloween Candy Can You Eat Before You OD?

960x0

*If you’re like me, you’re in the middle of a serious Halloween candy detox.  As I got ready to head to the gym today to TRY to undo some of the damage done to my cardiovascular system, I wondered (as I deftly opened yet ANOTHER Milky Way Dark) just how many of those “Fun Size” puppies would I have to eat before I wound up in that great candy shop in the sky.

The American Chemical Society has come through with the digits.

Based on what’s called the “LD50” for sucrose, or the amount that when consumed would kill at least half of a sample of test animals, the data show that the average 180 pound human would have to gorge on over 5.4 pounds of sugar to have a 50/50 chance of croaking.

That’s the equivalent of 262 “Fun Size” candy bars, or 1,627 individual pieces of candy corn.   Continue reading

Bake Sale Prices Based on Race and Gender at UT-Austin Causes Student Uproar

aff-action-bake-sale

*They call themselves the Young Conservatives of Texas club and they are in the news because earlier this week they headed over to the West Mall area of the University of Texas-Austin — where free speech is encouraged — and held what they called an “Affirmative Action Bake Sale.” That all sounds well and good, until you see the Black kid standing next to the white kid is paying a different price. And the Asian girl standing behind the Hispanic dude is too.

Say what, you ask?

According to the Dallas Morning News, cookie prices ranged from “free for American Indians of both genders, 50 cents for African Americans, $1 for white males, and $1.50 for Asian males.”

The UT-Austin students say they were protesting “institutionalized racism” of university level affirmative action.

Now, I’m going to quote a line from a Rihanna song here: “Don’t get it twisted.”

I mean, what with the whole “affirmative action” tag you might actually be thinking this group of “conservative” students are probably showing support for students of color; those who affirmative action was actually designed for.

To this notion I say…

Nah. Continue reading
