Why Men in Power Act Like Pigs

Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The news of former head of the International Money Fund Dominique Strauss-Kahn — or DSK — being charged for an alleged sexual assault, and former California Governor and Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger fathering a love child during an extramarital affair got my attention. No matter how powerful you are, if you a man who commits such lewd acts, people just perceive you as a pig.

With all due respect to the pink curlicue tailed farm critters you’d find rolling in mud, these men’s piggish behavior is inexcusable. Yes, they ARE men, but they are also the movers and shakers that help shape our society.

You can add Newt Gingrich, President Bill Clinton, and Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi to the mix. But it’s not limited to the political world.  Who can forget R.Kelly — thank God he’s not guilty in the child-porn case — who had allegedly had sex with a 14-year-old girl. And made a sex tape of it too boot.

As for Ahhh-nold… his comeback to Hollywood has been put on hiatus.

What Judgement Day?

The "predicted" Judgement Day was a flop.

May 21st, 2011 came and went like clockwork, and no, not a damn thing happened as one Harold Camping of Family Radio predicted.  He was also wrong when he predicted the world would end in 1994 (I was 11 at the time) but — again — nothing happened. Sooner or later, he’s gonna claim he made a mistake with his calculations. B.S.!

If you read the Bible, you know that “no man knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in Heaven (Matthew 24:36).” So how did Harold Camping know? Why did he pick May 21, 2011 as the fixed Judgement Day? Is he trying to scare people into repentance, knowing they ain’t guaranteed a trip into Heaven even if they are saved such as myself? Yes, he predicted the end of times to be set on September 6, 1994, but he did not apologize to the people he deceived.

You cannot drive around the country without seeing one of those loud billboards that boast about the “May 21, 2011” date of Judgement Day. Or even receiving one of them brochures about it. They want you to be scared to death — literally — so you would convert. Gives God-fearing a whole new meaning.

So, nothing happened and the “Judgement Day” was an epic fail.

Randy “Macho Man” Savage

You knew him as the spokesperson of Slim Jim. You watched him on the WWE (when it was the WWF, or World Wrestling Federation) along with Hulk Hogan and Bam Bam Bigelow. And he’s famous for coining the phrase “Ooooh, yeah!”  Randy “Macho Man” Savage died in a car crash today. He was just 58.

Here is one of his appearances on the Slim Jim commercials.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

What is going on in this world!?

Punished over a pink whistle?! A PINK WHISTLE!??!

It took them long enough, but the gang of 143 football referees from the Pacific Northwest Football Officials Association were finally disciplined for — get this — wearing pink whistles, and thus the majority of playoff games over the next two years will be held by the Washington Officials Association.

Why they would be punished is beyond me as they were supporting a good cause. By wearing pink charity whistles, they support the fight against breast cancer. A group of high school football even donated their paychecks to the Susan B. Komen Foundation.

But whatever the football referees at a suburban Seattle high school were selling, the WOA wasn’t buying.  Unfortunately, Todd Stordahl acted like  a whiny little — who always seemed to want his way. He told KING 5 News that this practice “sends the wrong message to kids that are playing the game. ‘If they broke the rules why can’t I do the same?'” What the hell… ? Last time I checked, his was AMERICA!

How “Obama” Was Killed???

How do you make this mistake. A reporter of the Canadian Global News called uses “Obama” rather than “Osama” three times on air. Though “Obama” and “Osama” are spelled similarly, it’s easy to confuse one with the other.

Breakfast Blues

Don’t want to brag but… I just had a Blueberry Waffle Breakfast Sandwich from Dunkin’ Donuts. I don’t know who came up with the idea of combining blueberry waffles, maple-flavored sausage, scrambled eggs, and American cheese and putting it into a sandwich — but he (or she) is a genius.

The good news is it goes great with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. But here’s the bad news: it’s a limited-time offer.

Bye-Bye, Redbeard

It’s official. After a week of constant torments day after day via video, Will Ferrell finally followed through with this threats and shaved Conan O’Brien’s beard. A Saturday Night Live alum, Ferrell was a guest on last night’s episode of Conan. Now the whole world will just have to picture Conan without the beard rather than the bearded Conan.
