this is the Champs Elysees. the story is that French farmers turned part of it into a “field” to promote the French farming industry, which is apparently going through some tough times. (this picture is a little old.) i wanted to put it here because i love Paris and i wish i would have been there.

i’m too lazy to find any statistics or articles about the dramatically shrinking middle-class in the US. this cartoon does a good enough job for a saturday, though. i saw it a couple days ago and, although it’s from a past administration, nothing much has changed. in addition, the Senate walked out for Memorial Day recess yesterday without telling the Congress. Democrats arguing for another extension of unemployment benefits found out during the discussion that the Senate had already bailed. yet another Senate Democrat fail. fucking assholes.

i don’t really want to get into it too much because it’s really depressing to talk about, but the oil spill in the gulf is really, really horrible. with the effects on the wildlife and on the ecosystems, the oceans, the gulfstream running along florida and up the east coast, not to mention the 11 guys that died in the initial explosion and the many, many people whose livelihoods depend on shrimping and fishing in the gulf, i honestly can’t even read another article, watch another news story or look at another picture of the effects there. it’s just really a bummer. our clusterfuck of a government had better damn well make sure BP pays for ever red cent of cleanup of this shit, for the next fucking century.

…until i saw THIS. apparently it went viral on the interwebz until NBC Universal tried to get them all taken down.
i mostly felt bad for the guy because that video was SO BAD. i figured he’d crawl back into that hole he’s been in for the past 10 years and never be heard from again. but, to his credit, he did exactly the opposite of what would be expected of someone whose “talent” was exposed as so incredibly sub-par. and i gotta say, well done. now i will re-commence forgetting about this person.

i never thought i could see so much of a dick without actually seeing any dick.
p.s. this dance would never work with denim, so if this catches on there’ll be a lot of basketball shorts and cotton sweatpants in da club…

there’s a facebook campaign to get Carol Burnett to host SNL. i’ve seen re-runs of the Carol Burnett Show and her performances in some movies, and she is fucking brilliant. guaranteed her SNL would be at least as good as Betty White’s. sign up for the group and make it happen!
