Self-described comedian Michael Richards made a complete fool of himself -- and then turned to Jesse Jackson for damage control (after David Letterman didn't do him much good). What do you think, will it help him or just hurt him more?
Pam Anderson and Kid Rock have filed for divorce. There's a big surprise. I was on the "winning" side of a "pool" that said it wouldn't last a year. Too bad there's no wad of cash involved.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick gave the two-handed bird to fans after the Falcons lost to the New Orleans Saints yesterday. Let's see -- Vick was given virtually a free ride by Virginia Tech, had a first class education made available to him (not that he availed himself of it), now plays pro ball at an obscene salary, and this is the best behavior he's capable of? Will it hurt him? Most likely not. In fact, he'll probably make more money next year.
Words Gone Wild don't really hurt anybody, either. They're out there. They'll always be out there. Those who abuse words will keep on keeping on. Their colorful inventors will either be perpetual hangers-on at the forums they frequent or ... they'll get published by PublishAmerica. In the meantime, they give us something to play with. Thanks, Roxan, for today's anti-writing lesson in Twisted Linguistics.
cuntrolling - Ah, geez. We could certainly use this one obscenely, but we're not going to. Instead, we're going to guess that it most probably means a particularly sly and cunning method of control. It is, in fact, so cunning that we believe there may be hypnosis involved.
The slings ad arrows - This is a reference to bad, ineffective advertising which greatly pissed off the person who purchased it.
always carty my birth certifuicat - This is a lament by someone whose cat's (who he doesn't like much and curses daily) birth certificate is so heavy that he must haul it around in a specially made cart.
paragrapogh - This is an oblique reference to a pogrom secretly carried out by nameless illiterates against certain paragraphs of Edgar Alan Poe's body of work.
