I weep for our future. And our present.

People can’t seem to understand that whatever faults social media may have, it will always expose the frauds of the world. Case in point, when somebody asked the Twitterverse to name a badder bitch than Taylor Swift, the People of Twitter did precisely that. There were literally hundreds of responses, but I shall only post my two favorites. Let’s begin with the original post, followed by the responses.

Ooh, tough one. Who could possibly be badder? Wait . . .

Boom. But there’s more . . .

Mmmm . . . K. Once again, the internet wins. Thank you and goodnight.

Listen, having my life threatened because of something I’ve written isn’t new. I’ve been threatened by angry clowns, Nazis, racist rednecks, a crazy lady stalker and even an angry mother of a high school bowler from Cincinnati. Still, this latest threat has me a little flummoxed. See, a few weeks ago I wrote a little something called Do you know a psychopath? which I thought was a fairly innocuous piece about, well, psychopaths. Anyway, a couple days later I received this little missive from some nutjob who has to be out of his gourd. I shall break it down as we go:

YOU, personally, really should weigh your words SERIOUSLY. I strongly advise you to delete this written defamation of a huge group of people who do not take slander and character assassination like this easily.

Well, I sort of assumed psychopaths would not take things lightly, so this part doesn’t surprise me a bit. Psychopaths, man. Thin-skinned like you read about.

I do not know which organization you have got to back you up, but if you do not care about lawsuits in the multi-million dollar range, fine, just keep on doing what you are doing.

HA! First off, these people have no idea what organization I have backing me up, and if they did they’d back off in a heartbeat. Let’s just say The Black Wave has my back.

Bad. Ass.

If you DO care about spending x-amounts of money to try and defend this CLEARLY written libel, then take my advice – DELETE. Your post is now officially been copied and screen-shotted and digitally stored for later use and evidence. This is just a warning. Delete or pay the consequences either monetarily or physically.

Whoa, can you say dark turn? But listen, any threatening letter writer that uses the word screen-shotted is alright by me. Hell, I’m not even mad. That’s amazing.

We are Antifa, we do not forget.

Wait. What? Who? Antifa? The anti-fascist group? Has this psychopath even read my website? Hell, I’m practically Antifa myself, man. C’mon Antifa. You’re better’n ‘at.

Note: No way somebody from Antifa wrote this. Has to be a lone wolf psychopath dude. I’m not rich so a lawsuit means nothing to me, and I ran the IP address and it originated from Arlington, Virginia. That would be a what, a 7-hour drive to kill me? To be safe, Sparky and I shall be on high alert for a few days. Such is the life of a world-famous blogger.

 

So mega-rich former Hollywood producer, banker and current US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin posed with his trophy wife and a sheet of money, presumably because he’s excited to see his signature on a dollar bill, but hey, who wouldn’t be? Anyway, the worldwide interweb is having some fun with the photos. First, check out the pics:

Now, the comments:

“Picking out wallpaper for the cognac swirling room.”

“Only way this could be worse would be if Linton and Mnuchin were lighting cigars with flaming dollar bills.”

“You cannot parody these folks.”

“Why are they dressed like Bond villains?”

“Just a friendly reminder that the GOP wants to raise taxes on the middle class & take health insurance away from millions of Americans so people like Louise Linton and Steven Mnuchin can get a tax cut.”

“Me at Chipotle when the tell me the guac is extra.”

Good stuff. And it’s also comforting to know that some women are attracted to a man’s personality and not his bank account.

PS- Kidding. She’s totally attracted to his bank account.

People are dumb. Here’s proof. Click for the funny.

So some bro created a cloud lamp that reacts in real time to the tweets of Donald Trump, because of course he did. This connected lamp is capable of reacting in real time to messages posted on Twitter, creating a thunderstorm every time a hilarious, self-congratulatory, delusional Trump tweet is posted. It’s the perfect gift for those of us who’d like a warning before a Trump Tweet slaps us in the Twitter Face, or for those who enjoy and approve of The Donald’s wacky, childlike antics. As for me, I’m going to purchase one and have the Looney Tunes theme song play with every Trump Tweet.

Photos and video below.

ggggggggg

Some classics here. Click on the pics and scroll to get the full effect, man.

So this popped up on the Twitter late Thursday night after Trump buddy Tom Brady’s Patriots got waxed by Kansas City 42-27. Classic stuff.

WHEN YOUR FRIEND’S APPROVAL RATINGS DROP BELOW 35%

So the prestigious Washington Post just fired off one of the most insightful, in-depth and well-researched tweets of the year with this gem:

NATION’S FOURTH LARGEST CITY STRUGGLES TO GET MOVING AGAIN AFTER HARVEY

 

Gee Washington Post, ya think?

 

That’s pretty high alright.

 

Yep.

My kinda kid.

Moms, man. Just diabolical.

Boom. Roasted.

So the internet is exploding over The Donald’s supposed “shove” of Prime Minister Milo Dukanovic of Montenegro. Hey, do you think the Trumpster’s gonna stand behind the leader of Montenegro?* Hell no. This is exactly what the people who voted for him want and expect him to do, man. Just knockin’ NATO leaders around like a boss. Seriously though, this just looked like a friendly slap to me. That dude’s lucky Big D didn’t chokeslam him and follow it up with an elbow drop. Montenegro? Get your ass to the end of the line. ‘Murica!

*Montenegro is a country in Europe and it’s beautiful, in case you didn’t know. It was formed in 1992 after the breakup of Yugoslavia. On a related note, I had no idea it existed until 3-minutes ago. 

That little jacket adjustment at the end just topped off the whole move, amirite? Trump, man.

So this couple posted an engagement photo online, along with an open pregnancy test box in the lower foreground. Oops. Anyway, the resulting Facebook conversation was a classic.

I don’t know why but this cracked me up.

Well, good Lord. I guess his heart was in the right place?

As you all know, JK Rowling is the author of all the Harry Potter books. In addition, it turns out she’s someone you don’t want to mess with on the ol’ Twitter unless you want to be brutally destroyed. Here are some of her comebacks to the Twitter Trolls. JK Rowling is diabolical, man.

Social media users became outraged after someone posted an image of what happyhourappears to be packaging for the “Happy Hour Playset” on Facebook on December 6. The packaging says the playset includes a pretend bar, bar stools and beer bottles and shows toddlers standing at the plastic bar with plastic bottles in their hands and a very young bartender behind the bar. 

Readers took their frustrations to the Fisher-Price Facebook page for marketing such an item to toddlers or their parents. 

One Facebook user said, “Saw this and had to write. What the heck are you thinking? I hope to heaven that nobody buys this for their children it’s sick.”

The image was obviously photo-shopped by a very talented graphic designer. 

OK, listen up angry, judgemental, and sanctimonious people on your high horses: IT’S A JOKE. IT’S NOT REAL YOU MORONS.  See, those kids aren’t drinking real beer. It’s pretend. And look at that bartender. Adorable. On a related note, I’ve received look from bartenders before. And I love the words on the side. “Rough day at the playground? Pull up a stool!” That’s gold, Jerry. Gold.

Note: It’s just a matter of time before somebody starts selling this item for realz. Count on it.

Poor Hank, man.
