Daiquiri Factory spikes it’s drinks with stupid.

February 13, 2014

A recently opened bar in Spokane, WA, and with a name like the Daiquiri Factory I use that term loosely, created a drink called ‘Date Grape Koolaid’ to put on their menu. Protests ensued. I’m sure that will be changed as soon as they realize that there is such a thing as bad press. If […]

Congressman elevates debate to dizzyingly stupid heights.

February 13, 2014

Michael Grimm (R-NY/Staten Island) threatened a reporter with a messy snap-you-in-half death, but then left the cameraman un-threatened and free to record the whole stupid incident. Grimm is being investigated for other alleged idiotic behavior like threatening his date’s husband , fundraising irregularities and pulling a gun in a night club. Congressman Grimm has paved […]

FCC Commissioner explores the stupid side of ethics.

September 26, 2011

Now former FCC Commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker joins the NBC-Universal family as a lobbyist only months after approving Comcast merger. Someone, and I’m not saying who, was probably absent the day that ethics were taught. Is there a phobia for being afraid of acting with integrity and morality? There should be and I know just […]

Climate change? No problem! Sherwin Williams to the rescue!

September 26, 2011

In Peru the glaciers are disappearing. No matter who or what you blame for that Eduardo Gold is doing something about it, just not something particularly smart. He’s painting the mountain top white to make up for the melting snow. Good luck to you Mr. Gold.

Felony stupidity!

July 7, 2010

BP/ Coast Guard clampdown on journalists. I can’t decide which is a bigger moron thing to do, bar journalists or reading what the journalists themselves actually write. Don’t they realize that all they have to do is give the largest media institutions unfettered access and the problem will go away? Ever since journalism schools started […]

Great Bollocks University.

July 7, 2010

Glenn Beck starts his own college. As Lewis Black is fond of saying, that bears repeating.  Glenn Beck is starting his own college. That’s a lot of bananas and inner tubes to ‘educate’ the home-schooled youth with. Maybe they can get their text books from Texas?

Boehner pulls a boner.

July 7, 2010

Boehner says we can’t have War AND Social Security – So we need to ditch Social Security. I say we can’t have Boehner and smart people in congress so we must choose to ditch Boehner. That’s just me. He’s been saying a lot of idiotic stuff lately in his war of words with President Obama. […]

Republicans aren’t all this stupid thank God!

July 7, 2010

Republicans object to bill for homeless veterans. The party of no says no to their own ideals. Not really a surprise. The Republican party is doing what they did to Clinton by obstructing everything, even stuff they pretend to care about. It’s like a secret language. When they say they care about the troops getting […]

Oklahoma! Land of free-range stupid people.

July 7, 2010

Oklahoma police taze an 86-year-old bedridden grandmother. Later you will hear me complain about a mother in Iran who might be stoned to death. I wonder why we are backsliding into Iranian stupidity here in America. Did the grandmother have a gun? Could she even walk!? What kind of an moron cop makes a decision […]

Dredging up the courage to care about this stupid change in the law.

July 7, 2010

The UK is going to start selling things only by weight instead of number. Odd rules. Weights and measures are incredibly important in so many ways. Even so this does seem to me to be an unnecessary change in the law. Aren’t there other more important things to be doing with the law? Well I […]
