The Hallmark Sweater Ornament Thing Controversy

Today's Top News

I learned today that Hallmark is in trouble because they changed the word gay to fun.  *insert my rolling eyes here*  I'm sure they did it so they didn't offend anyone and that worked out for them didn't it!? 

I don't know about you but I think we are getting overdosed on the politically correct thing.  Pretty soon people are just going to be afraid to talk.  I don't think we should be mean spirited or downright hateful but this whole being "sensitive" you hurt my feelings thing so a group is going to bully a company just doesn't work either!  It's just so gay! :P  How's that for politically incorrect?  And how is this... that Hallmark ornament sweater thing looks GAH-AYE!  So if Hallmark would have put "gay" on it they would have taken crap for that for sure!

So put your *gay pants and deal with it!

*Synonyms for gay via - cheerful, gleeful, happy, glad, cheery, lighthearted, joyous, joyful, jovial; sunny, lively, vivacious, sparkling; chipper, playful, jaunty, sprightly, blithe.

I'm just curious but, when did the first definition of gay become homosexual?  I don't recall growing up with that as the first meaning in my dictionary.

My final thought on this subject:  We have all the anti-bullying campaigns...but where are the kids learning to bully?  It's not just a bully or two anymore it's whole groups of kids ganging up on a few. Just a strange coincidence?  Tell me your thoughts and keep it nice no bullies allowed!

 Today's Top Joke

A scientist was interested in studying how far bullfrogs can jump. He brought a bullfrog into his laboratory, set it down, and commanded, "Jump, frog, jump!"
The frog jumped across the room.

The scientist measured the distance, then noted in his journal, "Frog with four legs - jumped eight feet."

Then he cut the frog's front legs off. Again he ordered, "Jump, frog, jump!"

The frog struggled a moment, then jumped a few feet.

After measuring the distance, the scientist noted in his journal, "Frog with two legs - jumped three feet."

Next, the scientist cut off the frog's back legs. Once more, he shouted, "Jump, frog, jump!"

The frog just lay there.

"Jump, frog, jump!" the scientist repeated.


The scientist noted in his journal, "Frog with no legs - lost its hearing."

They Aren't Joking About Toking

Today's Top News

I read today that New York is going to up the legal age to buy cigarettes to 21 and while they are at it they are raising the price of a pack of cigarettes to $10.50  They say this is an effort to pick more tax dollars out of the consumers pocket curtail teen smoking.

They didn't vote to up the age of when it is legal to buy bongs, pipes or other drug related paraphernalia though.  I guess they will get those tax dollars in one hit by hiking taxes on "junk food".  That way they get the stoners and the fatties all in one swift move.

Dude, I learned from this article, more teens currently smoke pot than cigarettes, according to the federal government’s National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Rarely do you see cigarettes in movies or on TV anymore I mean it's close to a criminal activity... but more and more, you do see people that are stoned or getting stoned.  Smoking marijuana is portrayed as both fun and cool.  How is it that we can have a "war on drugs" when Hollywood is promoting them?

Let me adjust my tinfoil hat and say that I think our government wants a dumbed down - drugged up population.  The less the public cares what goes on, the more they can get away with.

Don't forget, Hollywood pushed those cigarettes at one time!  So, don't fall for their "pot is cool" campaign, just say no kids years from now they will come out and say pot is bad for you and it will be just as much of a social stigma as smoking is.

Candy Crush, Friend to Foe, Wicked Witch

Today's Top News

I haven't posted in quite sometime so, I thought I would keep today's top news story on the lighter side.  Candy Crush updated their app!  That's right boys and girls, if you are a Candy Crush addict, defined as reaching the end of the app, your fix is in!!!  For those of you addicted but haven't reached the "end" the update includes level 441 through 455.  

Today's Top Gossip

So one of my friends got "unfriended" over a link she posted.  Yes, it was of a political nature,  but seriously folks why?  Why would you give up a friend for Obama, Bush or any of them?  Does Obamacare provide friendship?  Like can you call a hotline or something for friends you have given up due to politics? 

Ring, ring...

Hello and welcome to the Obamacare hotline.  Please listen to the options carefully and be patient as not all the options work correctly or in a timely matter because afterall this was created by the government.

I don't think they will have an option for someone to cry to if you boyfriend hurt your feelings, and they aren't going to loan you a cup of sugar, or come jump start your car. 

Let's keep our heads about us people! Don't dump your friends over politics.

Ben Affleck to Live on $1.50 a Day and Unicorns... What!?

Today's Top News

Today I learned that there is a cause called Live Below The Line
Live Below the Line is an innovative awareness and fundraising campaign that's making a huge difference in the fight against extreme poverty. Quite simply, we’re building a movement of passionate people willing and able to make a meaningful difference to those who need it most. Live Below the Line is challenging individuals and communities to see how much change you can make out of $1.50. By living off just $1.50 per day for food for 5 days, you will be bringing to life the direct experiences of the 1.4 billion people currently living in extreme poverty and helping to make real change. Think about that figure - 1.4 BILLION - that's over 4 times the population of the United States - living every day in extreme poverty. - See more at:
Well I follow tons of coupon blogs and while I'm not big on couponing even I don't see this being awful or difficult especially since Ben is only doing it for 5 days... I also went by the site and it seems that it's all UN crap... I think a government on it's own wastes enough money so let's do the whole United Nations and get a whole bunch of governments together to waste money. GREAT IDEA!

But hey good for Ben for caring about the little folks!

You Have a #Point or Two

Today's Top News

Today I learned that in Iceland the government has to approve the name of your child.  This is to protect the child from having an embarrassing name.  I'm happy that we live in the Land of The Free and that we don't have to have approval from the government for a baby's name.  Although Hashtag may disagree. You can read about the Iceland girl who is fighting a legal battle over her name here or you can read about little baby Hashtag here.

The Dumb, The Yum & The Bum

Today's Top News

Oh shoot!  That's not a command, that was just my expression after I read that some newspaper had to hire armed guards after being all I'm billy bad ass and deciding to print a whole bunch of gun owners addresses in the paper.  Ok, if you are going to bully people, ya think they might have picked the wrong group of people to piss off?  You can read all about it here.

Today's Yummy Post

Oh yes, oh yes... I do love good food.  I saw this recipe posted for Applesauce Cupcakes... and it doesn't have eggs in the recipe... (so if you are like me and sort of grossed out by the raw eggs thing)  and while the recipe didn't say so... I'm thinking you could eat this with a spoon, no oven required.  :) I'm just saying if it were my recipe it would be called Applesauce Delight - A Great No Bake Dessert.  So whether you just want to eat the batter or bake up some yummy goodness, here's the recipe.

Remember the uproar when Elvis was thrusting his pelvis around?  Ok, me either, not first hand anyways.  Well, fast forward and here to kick off 2013, Kathy Griffin has taken TV to a whole new level by giving Anderson Cooper's "sack" (her words, not mine) a smooch on CNN's live New Year's Eve broadcast.  I wonder if she missed the announcement that he's gay?
You can see the whole twisted thing here.
