  • Time to Nurture America's Irish-Inspired Sense of Humor

    03/17/2018 8:05:25 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | March 17, 2018 | Tom Purcell
    It's always grand in March of every year to pour myself a pint of Guinness and enjoy the glorious Irish wit. It's my good fortune to be a fellow of Irish descent. I share my good fortune with a quarter of all Americans, who can trace their heritage to the rolling, green hills of Ireland - including my Uncle Mike, rest his soul, whose grandparents came to America from Ireland. As a lad, I loved the way he and my father celebrated St. Patrick's Day: by swapping the same Irish jokes and witticisms that I've been retelling for years. Such...

  • Rudy Giuliani made crude joke about Hillary Clinton's weight at Trump fundraiser: Report

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/4/2018 | Kyle Feldscher
    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani reportedly made a crude joke about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s weight Friday while at Mar-a-Lago with President Trump. Axios reported Giuliani was invited up on stage during Trump’s remarks to the donors at the event. He recounted a story about him attending Trump’s wedding at the Florida estate. “Hillary was also here, and she actually fit through the door,” Giuliani reportedly said. The crowd at the fundraiser reportedly gasped and Giuliani’s wife was incredulous at the remark. Trump later said “I’m just glad I didn’t say it,” according to the report.
  • Finally watched The Death of Stalin

    03/01/2018 9:43:35 AM PST · by Krosan · 28 replies
    I finally watched it today. It is not a hilarious comedy as the trailer suggests. It is a very very black comedy as everything in this movie really happened and the atmosphere it hints at without going too dark is very real. Perhaps this is a good way to teach this part of the history so far often neglected. The kids and adults will see this movie and think it was over the top and then will seek more information only to learn that this is how insane that horror really was and the movie was basically the exact retelling.

    Steve Kenilworth sighs as he flops down on the couch in the staff room at Rick Astley High School, his Grade 8 math classes finally done for the day. "I'm grateful to have such a full workload this semester because it really keeps my mind off…my…my situation," he shares in a sternly hushed tone as both of his eyes scan the room. Kenilworth explains that several months ago, much to his shock, biology teacher Samantha Young confessed that she has romantic feelings for him. Meanwhile, however, Kenilworth has been helplessly in love with English teacher Dana Freeman for a number...

    MONTGOMERY, AL—In an update Wednesday to its Hatewatch blog, the Southern Poverty Law Center announced the newest addition to its authoritative list of hate groups: the Southern Poverty Law Center. “We have identified an organization with a clear history of rank intolerance toward faith communities based solely upon their sincerely held religious convictions,” the statement reads. “This organization has encouraged ostracism and threats toward people, politicians, and businesses that do not adhere to its rigid progressive agenda. It has existed and operated right under our noses for years. It is known as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).” The statement...

    O. EM. GOSH. It’s 2018, and inequality is still a HUGE problem, even in a progressive utopia like Hollywood. Case in point: this woman’s name is Xayley Briers. She spends forty-five minutes a day running her Etsy storefront selling pet rocks. Do you know how much she makes? About $13 a day. Pretty sad, right? Well, it gets worse. While Briers works her butt off selling and shipping pet rocks all over the country for almost an hour each day, Hollywood A-lister and cisgendered white male Robert Downey Jr. made around $15 MILLION for his work in mega blockbuster Spider-Man...

    Once the xxxxy media men list was made public, many asked, “Where will we draw the line? Who will be next? Will there be another list??” It appears there is. The mild-mannered men in media list has now been revealed. At first glance, you might wonder, “Do these missteps really rise to the level of civil or criminal offenses?” If that’s your reaction, then you’re missing the point. My intention is merely to begin a conversation about men who wear thin belts and brag about their low-residency MFA programs. From there, the healing can perhaps begin. Mild-Mannered Men in Media...

  • Russia bans historical comedy Death of Stalin for 'extremist' content

    The Telegraph ^ | 23 JANUARY 2018 | Our Foreign Staff
    Russia's culture ministry on Tuesday withdrew permission for the release of British film The Death of Stalin later this week after officials and top arts figures labelled it offensive and "extremist". Armando Iannucci's comedy, which had a world premiere in September, takes a satirical look at the power scramble after Stalin's 1953 death and includes actors playing historical figures such as World War II commander Marshal Georgy Zhukov, Nikita Kruschev and Vyacheslav Molotov. "The distribution certificate for the film 'The Death of Stalin' has been withdrawn," a spokeswoman for the culture ministry told AFP. The ministry said the film's release...

    Dear Diary. For my sixty fifth birthday this year, my wife (the dear) purchased a week of personal training at the local health club for me. Although I am still in great shape since playing on my college tennis team 45 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try. I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer named Belinda, who identified herself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and model for athletic clothing and swim wear. My wife seemed pleased with my enthusiasm to get started! The...

    Why Go to Church? One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, "I'm not going." "Why not?" she asked.  "I'll give you two good reasons," he said. "One, they don't like me, and two, I don't like them."  His mother replied, "I'll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to church: One, you're 59 years old, and two you're the pastor!"
