Just when you think the PC-ness of corporate America is without bound, along comes this item from Mattel's 'elite Gold Label Collection' Barbie line. Never too early to start Christmas shopping.
And no, that's not a clever headline. It's the doll's real name!
Rent's due, Barbie.
Please welcome to the GonzoGeek stage, everybody's favorite neocon thinktank, the Heritage Foundation. You might remember them as the folks who long pursued a land military base in Iraq and finally found a stooge (W.) willing to implement the plan for them if only they'd give him some goodies. No? Well look it up.
One of their current stumps is to propound a conspiracy theory by which the US President and US Congress are actually attempting to make gasoline prices as high as possible.
This guy, Dan Halloran, has received the GOPs blessing as its candidate for the District 19 city council seat in Queens, NY. He is not only a Pagan high priest, but a King in his faith: Theodism. Gods include Tyr, Odin, and Thor.

Now, I've come to realize this woman is funny and was even kind of amused by her and the Woz being connected, but THIS is downright hilarious!

From the 'is that even legal' department: A Milwaukee-area bar is holding a fundraiser July 11 to pay legal expenses for a man accused of killing his girlfriend while driving his motorcycle drunk after the two had been patronizing the establishment.
The event will feature bikini car washes, a pig roast, and FREE BEER! No, really.
Protests are planned. The bar -- Fatties on the Lake -- says the event will go on anyway, with free camping and rides offered to those who might overindulg...
My first trip to South-by-Southwest in at least a couple of years was a very cool time. Kolby stays up there now, so I had a place to crash and good company to do whatever with. Andrew was in town from LA doing his thing. Had hoped to catch theArt live, but the matinee they were playing during my 24 hr trip got shutdown by the fire marshals before they even took the stage. Still, got to meet them and hang a little. Good folks to a person.
Saw some other good music though (Jon Davidson, the Effe...
What do you get when you combine Houston hipster hangouts, wannabe MILFs, barstools, and low-rise jeans? Some of the best crack in the land. I particularly admire the lack of anything -- even a thong -- obscuring the view. That's how you can tell we're dealing with a real woman here, not some just-legal still-exploring college thing.
My wife and I eventually got back to enjoying our food and drink (both very good and reasonably priced, especially at happy hour) in time to get to the main even...

You couldn't tell if it was working after he whooped ass on Rev. Bob Levy, but he just finished going toe-to-toe and staying on his feet with the vastly larger (and probably every-bit-as-crazy) Jose Canseco, so he must be doing something right!

In the run-up to Illinois Gov. Blagojevich's announcements today, Captain Plastic (aka Shepard Smith) from FOX News asserted repeatedly that the sun orbits the earth. "You see, the sun orbits the earth every 24 hours, because of that there are 60 seconds in a minute. I'm not sure how often whatever star orbits Planet Blago does so, but it's obviously at a different rate."
Dude was commenting on Blago's tardiness for his latest (self-scheduled) media prank and I was willing to let him off t...
So you hijack a supertanker (Sirius Star) 450 miles offshore east Africa in a motorboat and actually succeed. It seems the problem quickly becomes: what the hell do you do with the thing? You probably don't have a place to put 2 million bbl of crude. Or dock a ship more than 1,000 ft long. But you have to monetize your actions somehow, or it turns into just an oversized prank.
You start off by demanding $25 million for the ship, cargo, and crew. Weeks turn into months, and your demand...
