- "South Park"
They did it again last night. Matt Stone and Trey Parker absolutely ethered the NCAA. I don't know if college athletes should be getting salaries, but they definitely should be getting more than they currently do. Catch the whole episode here.
- "Halle Berry" Continuing to prove that she is, indeed, the Jordan of beautiful women. Just the greatest of all time. I don't know where this is from, nor do I care.
- "Privacy" While Sarah Palin and Kim Kardashian's ring have been dominating the news, the Senate voted to pass extensions to the already evil Patriot Act. The extensions "allow for roving wiretaps and the other allowing searches of business records in the pursuit of terrorist threats." Aka more spying on people. It'll be interesting to see if Barack signs this. Fear really is the most effective tool of government.
- "Fuckery" Some lady who apparently is famous because she is a host on American Idol, got on George Lopez's talk show talking crazy. She said that, while over at Paula Abdul's crib, she unknowingly ate some special brownies. What followed next is pure hilarity: "Six hours later I was like, 'heeeey, what's going on?'....The ambulance comes and is like, 'this b*tch is as high as a kite.'...The end result? Three days in the hospital, hallucinations and IV fluids....I almost died. Besides being funny, it's also complete bullshit. Not only do weed brownies not take six hours to kick in, under no scenario would being too stoned require a three-day hospital stint complete with IV treatment. I don't care if you ate 100 brownies, it wouldn't happen. If you don't regularly partake, an incredible edible may be an intense experience. Not a near-death experience though. And I don't give a damn about "how she was feeling mentally" or how scared she was. She didn't say she felt like she was going to die. She said she almost died. From weed. Which is untrue. This is exactly the type of bullshit that keeps us from having an adult discussion on marijuana. Via HuffPost.
Kevin Durant and the Thunder lost again last night. Their season is over. As you can see above, some jackass reporter thought it'd be a good idea to ask Kevin if he was happy to see Dirk Nowitzki get to the Finals again. Durant answered honestly and said hell no. This is the highest level of competitive basketball on the planet. Shaking hands after a loss is about as cordial as you should expect a professional athlete to be.
