Thomas just moved from France to the Detroit suburbs. He needs to get a cheap car quick but it can’t just be any car, it needs to be an American car, a freedom car!

It never fails. Every time I turn on the television and there’s a news segment about obesity—whether it’s on diabetes, heart disease, or the American diet—they do the same thing. They roll footage of obese bodies, but they never show these people above the neck. All of which leads me to wonder: How in the hell am I supposed to ever get off if I can’t see the fat faces of the people those fat bodies belong to? It’s unbelievably frustrating. What is the logic behind this? See, for me, there’s nothing better than coming home after a long day of work, plopping down in front of the television, and masturbating to fat people on the news. So when I see a promo saying they have a story on obesity coming up after the break, and see the lovely body of a 300-pounder shuffling down a sidewalk, I’m thinking, hey, here we go! I unbuckle my belt, pull my pants down, and settle in for what is sure to be a few solid minutes of sexual ecstasy. But sadly, … [Read more...] about How Am I Supposed To Get Off When News Networks Only Show Obese People From The Neck Down?
This afternoon, while browsing People.com/food as I am wont to do when the rest of the internet bores me, I noticed the “most popular” story on the site was about what Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure eats to stay healthy, and what she eats she wants to indulge. I know this because the headline was “What Candace Cameron Bure Eats to Stay Healthy – and When She Wants to Indulge.” Though I’m not the kind of person who would ever be interested in what Candace Cameron Bure eats to stay healthy or when she wants to indulge, I clicked the story anyway, which means—whoops!—I was lying, and that I am exactly the kind of person. The first thing I noticed after arriving on the story (apart from the fact that I am, in fact, a piece of garbage whose appetite for celebrity content is insatiable and indiscriminate) was that the thumbnail was a cropped image of Bure eating (or at least holding) StarKist tuna on what looks like a slice of tomato, … [Read more...] about Is This a Tuna Ad or What?
[Author's Note/Disclaimer: This post is pure speculation on my part. I have no insider knowledge of any plans from either IBM or Apple.] I remember many years ago when Apple posted ads that were very anti-IBM in nature. I also remember cringing a bit at the sight of them, thinking that it might be a bad idea to attempt the whole David and Goliath thing again. I mean, it worked once (David slaying Goliath, that is), but don't press your luck. You might wonder what I think of the IBM/Apple deal and I'm happy to tell you that I'm excited by what I think the future holds for us as a result of it. IBM and Apple make the perfect alliance because one has what the other does not. IBM has the strength in cloud, enterprise storage, enterprise (big iron) computing, and a foothold in the enterprise as a whole. Apple has all but tied up the consumer market for phones, music players, and tablets. It also has a fair share of the desktop market with its Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, and Mac mini (which … [Read more...] about What the IBM and Apple deal means to you and me
