Holy voluntary and unabashed racism

July 13, 2011

Did you hear the one about the couple in South Africa who had a “Colonial” themed wedding complete with costumes and servants?

Yeah, well it’s not fucking funny and nobody’s laughing.

This happened in South Africa.

A couple wanted a themed wedding with black servants.

What in the universe is going on in this world?

It’s like the world is a gigantic bus. And we’re all riding on the bus during our multi-millenia road trip. And just when you thought the kids were settled in and behaving like they should, one of them melts down into a furious bout of insanity.

“Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time,” says the bride and groom with Champagne spilled all over their clothing and dabbing their tears of laughter with hankies made of money.

The metaphor for the bus on a road trip is an appropriate one. The bus keeps going in circles around the sun. We think we’re moving forward, and dipshits in the world remind us that we’re going absolutely NO WHERE … and they like it so much they throw a party to celebrate it.

And with every mile we cruise through space, we keep returning to a biblical state of mind … a rationalist, morally corrupt ideology that allows behavior as sick as glorifying slavery within a group setting.

To top it off, this couple’s guests went along for the ride and had a blast. That’s like getting an invite to the Nazi Party … and going out of your way to grow a Hitler ‘stache and making sure you get your whole mouth around the shower heads in the gas chambers drink the booze spraying from them.

Have we learned nothing? When will progress take place?

I’d like to be on that bus when it leaves, and I’d like only people who “believe” in progress on it when we go.


Poor billboard placement

April 13, 2011

From the Daily UK:

An advertising firm has been blasted after a billboard for The Walking Dead was put on the wall of a funeral parlour in Consett, County Durham.

An apology has been issued after the ad for The Walking Dead appeared on the side of The Co-operative Funeralcare.

Susan Jones, from the Willow Burn Hospice, in nearby Lanchester, said that while some people may see the funny side, others would not.

Make room in your bags, Luis … I’m coming with you

February 5, 2011

Regular-reader Luis V is going to England next week, and I think I know why. I suddenly have the urge to check out Russian London landmarks, too. What, with all the beautification they’re doing lately. Who wouldn’t want to sight see in London Town?

Headline at Daily Mail Online: Fascinatingly flexible: Contortionist causes a stir by wrapping herself around London landmarks

.

Here are a few lines from the article (how many “no shit” moments do you count?):

The 24-year-old, real name Julia Gunthel demonstrated her impressive flexibility fitting snugly into a telephone box with her leg wrapped around her head.

She said: ‘I had a fantastic time in London practising my poses in phone boxes and in front of the National Gallery.’

‘A lot of people stopped on the streets and asked to take their picture with me, I think they were very surprised, which was great, everyone was very excited.’

Zlata caused a stir outside the Houses Of Parliament, the Horse Guards parade and the National Gallery taken the attention of the tourists away from the London attractions.

She said:’They all forgot about the sight-seeing and just wanted to take pictures of me instead, which was very fun for me!’

Wait a second. Do I smell a publicity stunt?
