An Exercise In Madness

~Of Hobos & Sluts~
A Children’s Tale By Benjamin Hill

Wendy The SlutI want to see my friend Beth, but I unfortunately don’t have the money to make a day trip to Detroit.  Maybe I could slut my way down there, that’d be an adventure.  I’d become friends with a slut named Wendy who is addicted to smack, has sold her baby for booze money, and is wearing a weave.  We would be best pals, Wendy and I.

Though most of our travels would occur via hitch-hiking on I-75, a portion would occur on a train, a good ol’ fashioned steam locomotive.  While on the steam locomotive Wendy and I become friends with some hobos who show us how to fashion shanks out of chopsticks and 2 sticks of wrigley’s gum.

It would be such a grand adventure…

The previous was adapted from an actual AIM conversation which occured on March 28, 2008.


It’s Not An Ugly Betty World

March 30, 2008

I wish I lived in the semi-ideal world of Ugly Betty.  A world where skinny people fall in love with fat people, all of life’s problems can be solved with a little elbow grease, and any awkward situation can be avoided by crawling silently out of a room on one’s hands and knees.

Ugly BettyUgly Betty, you are one lucky bitch.

And on a related yet completely unnecessary note, here are my top six favorite characters on Ugly Betty, in order.

1. Hilda Suarez
2. Christina McKinney
3. Claire Meade
4. Amanda Tanen
5. Marc St. James
6. Alexis Meade

Yeah, they’re almost all women.  What can I say?  The ladies on Ugly Betty are funny.


TAL On The Big Screen!

March 29, 2008

Yesterday (or maybe it was the day before) I was graced with the presence of a welcome message from This American Life within my inbox. I immediately became happy because I adore TAL and love anything/everything it produces. I was even happier when I clicked on the link within the message and read this:

Bald = No Hat

March 28, 2008

Dear Men (and Women) who are Balding or have receding hairlines,

Please do yourself a giant favor and do not wear a hat. . . ever.  I admit that though you do look better with the hat, the shock that is experienced once the hat is removed greatly overrides any initial attractiveness.  I’m not sure if that made sense so let me put it this way; If you’re bald and you wear a hat, once you take that hat off people are shocked by your baldness and see you as being ugly.  So you’re better off just not wearing a hat, or never ever taking the hat off.

Case in point: Tim McGraw

P.S. – I am balding myself, so take my advice bitches.


CreepyDog

March 27, 2008

Andrew Bravener is the cutest/funniest boy on YouTube and everyone should check out his videos, he makes me smile.

Now that that’s out of the way, I came across the creepiest and most amazing thing I’ve ever seen today.  This thing goes by the name of BigDog and it’s a robot which was created by the company Boston Dynamics.  Now Boston Dynamics doesn’t just create the creepy-as-fuck BigDog, it also made a robot than can climb walls, which goes by the name of RiSE.  Fun Stuff.

Here’s the video of BigDog in action, the creepiest parts are when the demonstrator attempts to kick BigDog over and also when BigDog slips on ice.  This thing is insane.

Combos are Nasty

March 25, 2008

CombosCombos are the most disgusting snack food to have ever been created. Maybe their deliciousness is lost on me, but I think they taste like vomit wrapped in a pretzel. I’m specifically talking about their "pizza" flavor. Disgusting! Dis-Gusting.

I dislike them so much that if Pizza Flavored Combos were the last food on earth, I would die before I ate them.  Okay, I would probably eat them, but I wouldn’t like it.
