- "Fuckery" Further proving that we are a lot dumber than we think we are, Santa Clara "officials" are voting today on a very important health issue. After today, it will finally be decided in Santa Clara, California whether or not toys will be allowed in Happy Meals. It's been about 2 years since I've had a Happy Meal, but I still consider myself an authority. I've been deep in the Happy Meal game since like '93. I don't know about you all, but I never bitched at my parents until they drove me to get my McNugget Happy Meal because I wanted a Johnny Bravo toy. I wanted those McNuggets. McDonald's could put used Kleenex in Happy Meals and kids would still eat them. Genius idea: if we want to give kids less shitty food, how about we start making less shitty food?
- "Dickies" Everyone's favorite workclothes brand is releasing a "1922 Collection" in the near future. The line is being touted as an "authentic replica" (...?) of what factory workers - and whoever else bought Dickies before NWA made them cool - used to wear. They'll probably just look like regular old Dickies, but that's not really a bad thing. Props Hypebeast.
- "Overkill" More A-student officials have come up with another genius idea. Reacting to the unfortunately routine spike in violence in Chicago, many lawmakers are calling for the National Guard to help. For the first time in a while, I gotta agree with King Richard on this one. This won't work. This isn't Maury. You're not just gonna bring in the scary National Guard boot camp people, have them yell at all the wild and crazy gangbangers, and then have an update episode a week later where Chicago's murder rate is less than the Twin Cities'. These are gang members. The National Guard would be here for a week or so, and maybe only 3 people would catch a bullet instead of 30. That's nice and all, but it doesn't solve the problem. How about calling in the National Government instead and getting some more money for Chicago schools since, you know, that's where kids come from...and kids join gangs.
- "B.o.B" The Adventures of Bobby Ray dropped today. In stores, iTunes, Amazon, everywhere. Go support this guy. You heard "Nothing On You".
The big homie GLC sets the record straight on that special something that makes pimpin' so pimpin'. Thanks to Andrew, I got to meet GL once and he is exactly like this. No posturing for the camera. Just a funny ass dude. Props FSD.
