Toilet wont stop running
On Wednesday morning, y’all’s punk-ass president began his day the way he so often does: by ruining everyone’s morning with deranged tweets reeking of stupidity, paranoia and various strains of bullshit. First he took shots at Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston—whom he claims no one has ever heard of, even though Tropicana Jong-il himself met the man way back in 1988—over Johnston being the source of two whopping pages of his 2005 tax return that made their way over to MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show. Shortly thereafter, 45 redirected his fury at Snoop Dogg over a music video that features a character named “Ronald Klump” being fired at by Snoop Dogg. Considering that this is the same person who said on the campaign trail that “Second Amendment people could stop [Hillary] Clinton,” 45 ought to shut his peach self the fuck up. I know, I know: Keep dreaming—dirty-colored liberal Attorney … [Read more...] about Why Won’t Y’all’s Punk-Ass President Stop Campaigning? Have We Not Suffered Enough?
If you grew up gay in an era before Netflix, you probably remember watching your first low-budget, straight-to-DVD (or straight-to-VHS!) LGBT romance movie. These movies had none of the critical fanfare of your Brokebacks or even the cult following that propelled the likes of But I’m a Cheerleader and Bound to the forefront of our queer entertainment-starved collective consciousness. You only stumbled on them because they were the only single-copy rental resting on the new release wall at your local Blockbuster Video. And if you were anything like me, you would devour them discreetly while the rest of the family was asleep. Many of these movies flew under the cineplex radar because of their subject matter, but more than anything else, their typically questionable quality never made them must-sees for anyone but young gay teens with no other options. Most of them aped the same tortured themes that mainstream movies were interested in exploring with gay characters. Namely: Coming … [Read more...] about Every single LGBT romance movie streaming on Netflix, ranked
I thought getting bullied on the school bus in middle school was bad, but these ten stories are just something else. 10.) "I Was The Only One Who Peed" Of course this happened in Florida. Friend of Jalopnik jbh has the story. " Greyhound from Ft. Lauderdale to Orlando. I think I was the only one who actually peed in the bathroom as opposed to shooting up/smoking bath salts/drinking mouthwash in it. Plus it took like 6 hours. I'd say just generally avoid Greyhound travel in Florida. Or just avoid Florida. Fuck the bus." Suggested By: jbh, Photo Credit: Tom in NYC 9.) Boosh! You thought there was only going to be room for one Florida Greyhound story on this list? Nope! Here's one from patrick0brien. " Greyhound bus from Orlando to DeLand after visit to Disney World with my brother. I think this was 1987-88 or something, too young to drive. So my younger brother and I bussed it to and from Disney. On the way back, there was a passenger who seemed to have a beef with anybody … [Read more...] about The Ten Worst Bus Trip Horror Stories Of All Time
Welcome back to Behind Closed Ovens, where we take a look at the best and strangest stories from inside the food industry. This week, we've got stories of some of the worst restaurant bosses I've ever heard of. As always, these are real e-mails from real readers. Rabbit LaRue: In 2003 I worked as a server at a restaurant/cocktail lounge in Boston, where the schtick was jazz-club-meets-Rat-Pack-meets-Vegas-meets-anything – reminiscent of the movie "Swingers." You know, the kind of place where the (extremely overpriced) featured cocktails included Sidecars, Manhattans, and Old Fashioneds, and the walls were padded in red tufted vinyl. 14 hour shifts. Calling out sick meant automatic termination. Sitting down was forbidden. So yeah, I didn't love my job. Still, I stuck around because the hours worked with my university schedule, and I'm apparently a masochist. (Editor's Note: Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt) On Friday and Saturday nights, they opened up the main … [Read more...] about The Worst Restaurant Bosses Ever
