So, a few days ago, I was just checking CNN.com to start my day, when I noticed three absolutely ludicrous headlines (and none of them surprisingly had anything to do with the presidential race). Check these out:

Story #1 - PETA Urges Ben & Jerry's To Use Human MilkReally? Human milk? For ice cream? Seriously? Is it me, or is PETA getting more and more ridiculous with their stances and their “attacks?” How is this reasonable in any possible way? I have to ask it again … human milk? I mean, how can anybody take this group seriously? At this point, you’d probably consider taking people like Hitler, Stalin, Sharpton, or Swaggert more seriously than PETA. How do outrageous stances like this advance PETA’s cause? And, just for the sake of argument, if Ben & Jerry’s DID decide to begin using human milk for their ice cream, who in their right minds (notice the word “right,” PETA) would eat this?

Story #2 - Lohan confirms she's dated woman 'a very long time'I have a couple of thoughts on this. First, HOW IS THIS EVEN A HEADLINE ON CNN???? I mean, I can understand this being a lead on such credible sites like Perez Hilton, Star Magazine, and heck, even People … but CNN? Seriously, will this relationship have an effect on the price of oil? Will it hinder the environment? No? Then, let’s not make this a headline, ok? Oh yeah, my second thought on this – Wait, that girl’s a woman? Really? She looks like the kid from Back to School, right? No, I need proof – drop the pants, “Samantha.”

Story #3 - New dad Clay Aiken comes out of closetAgain, I have two thoughts … The first thought is pretty much the exact thought as the one in Story # 2. So, let me focus on the second thought. Was this really a surprise to anybody? Look, I didn’t even watch American Idol, and I knew the guy was gay. Heck, next to him, Liberace looks like Magnum P.I., for crying out loud! Oh, and another thing, does Diane Sawyer really need to do an interview with this guy in order to “break” this story? I know, I know, Diane Sawyer has about as much credibility in the news “profession” as, well, Clay Aiken does in the music “profession,” but still … isn’t there a point where you just have to say no? I guess not.

Fo you think it's a tactic to get more people to watch CNN? Look we've got stupid celebrity gossip everyone--check us out!
Soon, though, won't it be nice to watch stupid CNN stories on your basement LCD? ;)

Before I rant, proof of a financial crisis: "Hugh Hefner to sack Playboy bunnies amid financial crisis."

PETA: what a bunch of boobs.

Prominently on CNN's website right now: Scarface.

Why the hell not? Congress (deficit = $106T) thinks it knows best how to run a business. Its solution to our financial crisis -- largely Congress' doing -- is an opportunity to waste even more. Sound like Scarface?

Ahmedinejad was just feted in NYC. Russia is invading free countries and sending aircraft carriers to every Latin American tin pot dictator. NoKo just broke yet another non-proliferation agreement. Sound like Scarface?

So, why not Scarface? At least the bad guy got shot in the movie.

The Rev said...

Huh huh... he said boobs!

Lisa said...

There are probably some sicko fetish-type people out there who would go for the human milk ice cream, but it's really disgusting. What's next ... promoting cannibalism? ...babspeapod

(P.S. -- That made me think of a funny new word -- cannonballism. I'm gonna have to try to use it in a sentence now.)

(P.S.S. - No, I'm not smoking anything.)

Man, first Clay Aiken is gay, next you'll tell me that Lloyd from Entourage is gay too.

I love Gollum said...

yeah, really fucked up shit going on in the world today

are we regressing?

Heff said...

I belong to PETA. "People for the Eating of Tasty Animals", that is.

Sandi said...

Babies would be able to eat Ben and Jerry's if it were made with breast milk.

That's what's happened to the "legitimate" news. I guess they forgot there is a war going on, the economy is in the toilet and we are about to elect a new president.

Kristin said...

#2 & 3 are in the "no kidding?" and #1 is soooo gross!

Reverse said...

I can't beleive he came out as a gay guy! I was hoping he would come out as a transsexual (Not that there's anything wrong with that!)

Superstar said...

note to self: read labels more often.

LOL

HELLO?? Clay Aiken? really? As if we didn't all know he was gay when Barry Manillow was a "wee bit" too familiar on American Idol!!!

Los said...

Snowelf - Hell yes!

Jeff - Scarface ... great movie! Weird comparison.

Rev - Thanks for stopping.

Babs - If you've got cannonbalism, do you have to join the circus?

Crass - Liberace was gay ...

Gollum - Just look at the people we elect to office ...

Heff - I'm a carnivorian ...

Kristin - Next thing they'll tell me is there's no Santa ...

Reverse - ba-da-bing!

Superstar ... I like the Bangles ... I'm just saying.

Alaina said...

Liberace = Magnum PI! that's hilarious!

Yeah, Clay was so obviously gay. I mean... come one.

CNN... I have no words... they shouldn't either.
