How ‘Bout Hiding ME!?

Bed Intruder strikes again!

Not really, but the kid responsible for the “Bed Intruder” video, and the snark catch phrase “Hide Yo Kids, Hide Yo Wife” is none other than Antoine Dodson. He was arrested and charged for possession of marijuana saturday. Speed, failure to appear twice on a traffic charge and failure to have liability insurance may have beenq factors in hisq drug-related charge.

There was a breaking news story on a local news station in Huntsville, Ala. in 2010. After witnessing an attempted sexual assault on his sister, he blatantly warned viewers to “Hide Yo Kids, Hide Yo Wife” from the attacker. Within a matter of days, the video went viral (as seen below).

Conan’s Beardly ‘Mistake’

Conan airs the “Fan Corrections” segment periodically during the orange-haired comedian’s show. But the Monday episode was no different. Will Ferrell, who is set to appear as a guest on May 2, made a fan correction video comment, threatening to shave Conan’s beard. And he is beardly serious.

To make his threat creepier, he changed his voice to sound like a sex offender (He called the hair on Conan’s face pubes and called Conan himself a dick.), wielding an old-timey razor. Now he’s even MORE serious.

“You’re going to feel the sting of my blade on May 2. The razor sleeps for NO ONE!”
-Will Ferrell during Conan, while interrupting an interview with Tina Fey.

Zsa Zsa a Mommy?

The secret is out — if it was a secret.  Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, at 94 years old, is likely to become a mother again. She, at 94, and her husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt are making proceedings to gain surrogacy of the baby. Von Anhalt is 27 years her junior.

Mind you, I feel for the baby. Zsa Zsa ain’t exactly in the best health possible. Von Anhalt, at 67, said if she passes before he does, he’ll have no reason to go on. How will the baby-to-be — he plans to name him or her Zsa Zsa, Jr. — go on should either of them pass? And don’t get me started with graduations and weddings. This raises more questions than it answers, and the baby wasn’t even born yet.

Just something to scratch you head over.

‘Last Supper’ Mystery

Was the Last Supper held on Maundy Thursday? That’s the $64,000 question of the day. Unfortunately, a new reasearch released earlier today claimed that it took place one day earlier — on a Wednesday. Are you kidding me?!

Professor Colin Humphreys, a scientist at the University of Cambridge, suggeasts introducing a fixed date for Easter.  If that’s the case, it’s time to say good-bye to Good Friday.

Humphreys’ findings help explain how the interpretations of the Last Supper by Mark, Matthew, and Luke differ from that by John, both using opposing calendars.  But nonetheless, both findings help explain how it coincide with the Jewish celebration of the Seder, or Passover. I, for one, am puzzled. I thought we had settled on the date for Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Easter several centuries ago.

The modified calendar sees Easter on the first Sunday in April.

Impaired Judgment

I wish I was joking… or making this mess up, but Kobe Bryant shouted a homophobic slur during the game Tuesday night and was fined by the NBA. And he has nobody to blame but himself for that. I love how we’re free to speak our mind, but if you a role model to your younger fans, their parents can hold you to a higher standard, so you better be careful what you say and do.

What Bryant said, is a not nice word. It starts with an “f” and ends with as “t,” and it is intended to bash, demean, and discriminate the LGBT (leasbiasn, gasy, bisaezxuasl, asnd trasnasgender) community. As a result, Bryant owes the NBA $100K.

That’s it!? $100K!? Are you kidding me !!!?? With all the pain and suffering the members of the LGBT now have to go through, the punishment should have been much harsher. I don’t care how rich you are, where you live, you don’t use that word. Period. No exceptions. It is a HORRIBLE word. Just like when white people call us black people the “n” word. Listen, watch the video and judge for yourself.

Green Light for Busway

The once-proposed bus rapid transit (or BRT) between Hartford and New Britain could soon become a reality.

The New Britain-Hartford Busway costs $567 million — more than $60 million per mile — and construction is slated for later this spring and could wrap up by the end of 2013. There are 11 stops (with a 12th one coming soon as part of the expansion of Central Connecticut State University) on this particular bus line, which serves the towns of Newington and West Hartford in addition to Hartford and New Britain. It should ease the congestion on Interstate 84.

Gov. Dannel Malloy is also considering the plan for the commuter rail line between Bristol and Waterbury. CT Transit services would be affected, and that’s change for the better, because the ridership of transit services would increase as gasoline prices are on the rise. In Hartford alone, it takes roughly 45 minutes to go to New Britain on the 41–New Britain route. Even with the addition of the new busway that would zip along the I-84 corridor, the Hartford-to-New Britain bus route will still be in use.

Opponents of the new busway include Michael Nicastro, mayor of Bristol, who said it’s ineffective and too costly. “He made sure the can didn’t get kicked down the road,” he said. While he praises Malloy for supporting the rail link from Waterbury to Bristol and then to Hartford, Nicastro is still reluctant to lose it.

I do remember President Obama’s speech on the need for BRT in America. China is whooping our asses butts when it comes to transporting passengers from point A to point B as quickly as possible.  Obama said we need to “out-innovate the world.” This time, he meant it.

Yes, We Conn!

No ifs, ands, or buts about it, the UCONN Huskies are the NCAA National Champions, beating the Butler Bulldogs 53–41. But more questions than answers loom the future of the UCONN Huskies 2011-12 season. Questions like, “Will Jim Calhoun retire?” and “Is Kemba Walker NBA-bound?”

There has even been a stream of tweets bashing the hell out of Jim Calhoun. What up?

Let’s not worry about that. UCONN is top dog.

Snooki Gets Schooled

Snooki of MTV's Jersey Shore.

Many colleges across the country are beefing up for their big graduation ceremonies, and that can cost a pretty penny.

Who did Rutgers University, a New Jersey-based university, choose to deliver the commencement speech? It’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi from MTV’s Jersey Shore, of course. Bless her heart, but she needs some school.  Rutgers paid her $32,000 to appear at the undergraduate commencement. That’s $2,000 more than Nobel Prize winning novelist Toni Morrison received who will also deliver the commencement speech at Rutgers in May. Can you believe it?

Snooki’s advice to the graduates set to appear before the class of 2011: “Study hard, party harder.” Oh no!
