NEW FEATURE -- Cafe' Chaos

Visit Cafe Chaos for music.

Specializing in the Atlanta music scene, but will feature national and international artists as well.

The picture is of a nightclub in the Latin Quarter of Montreal.

The French Canadians totally get me.

Also, the French Canadians are probably the coolest people in the world.

French people are really cool, Canadians are really cool, so put 'em together and voila!

Full disclosure, my wife's family are Quebecois on  her mother's side, so I may be a little biased.

Teabaggers in Action -- Chapter the Fourth

Today's Teabagger is Minnesota state senator Dan Hall.
Dan Hall claims to be able to read at a sixth-grade level, but that seems a bit dubious listening to this rambling word-goulash of a speech.

Oh, and here's a tip for aspiring public speakers. If you hear yourself beginning a sentence with "My friends are minorities. . ." just stop. There is no good ending to that sentence. There is no way that thought ends without you looking like the ignorant racist that you probably are.

Especially if your speech is anti-integration. And extra-especially if you use the words "segregation " and "integration" interchangably like Dan Hall seems to do in this clip.

So good job, Minnesota teabaggers. This is the guy you put in the State Senate. Were you trying to make Bachmann look like a reasonable choice by comparison?

Cute Animals Saying Naughty Words



Yeah, you'd better keep that one to yourself, there Slothie!.

Now This Takes Some Freakin' Balls!

Transocean awards safety bonuses to execs

 I'm sorry, what kind of bonuses?

. . . executives at Transocean—which owned the Deepwater Horizon platform  that blew up and claimed the lives of 11 oil workers while touching off the BP oil spill—are collecting safety bonuses for their performance in 2010.

Safety? But what about the whole Gulf thing? With the 11 people killed? And all the oil in the water?

While noting "the tragic loss of life" in the incident that led to last summer's Gulf disaster, the company said in a regulatory filing that it would pay two-thirds of a possible safety bonus to senior managers because—outside of the Deepwater Horizon explosion—the company's 2010 safety record was "exemplary," claiming it was "the best year in safety performance in our company's history."

The best year in company history, other than the biggest oil spill in US history?

That's like saying Bush did a great job on security, except for 9/11.

I know. I know, people really do say that.

Other bonuses given out include:

To Charlie Sheen for most sober year in Hollywood history.

To Rutgers University for best year booking guest speakers.

Reality TV star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi earned $32,000 to speak at Rutgers University recently, $2,000 more than Nobel Prize winning author Toni Morrison will receive to speak at the school's graduation.

And the award for mother of the year goes to. . .

Beauty Pageant Mother Injects 8-Year-Old Daughter with Botox and Takes Her Waxing.

 According to The Sun, "beauty-pageant obsessed single mum" Kerry Campbell gifted her daughter Britney with Botox injections for her eighth birthday last year. Botox injections are now a regular part of Britney's beauty regime – once every three months – which also includes waxing.

 "I know one day she [Britney] will be a model, actress or singer, and having these treatments now will ensure she stays looking younger and baby-faced for longer."

 "My friends think it's cool I have all the treatments and they want to be like me, says Britney. "I check every night for wrinkles, when I see some I want more injections. They used to hurt, but now I don't cry that much…I also want a boob and nose job soon, so that I can be a star."
