canes1.jpgThe zany fun known as hurricane season is fast approaching, and the Junkiness Meteorological Mob knows you’d hate for it to begin without knowing the names of each and every storm that’s about to flatten your home, dog, and all your possessions.

So, we happily present the official alphabetical names of the first 26 tropical storms, hurricanes, or badass muthafuckin’ hurricanes for the 2007 season–which will long be remembered as the year you really wished you’d stayed in Jersey and married that crazy skank Sheila Garibaldi instead of moving to Florida to pursue your stupid dreams:

Dawn of the Rhododendron

Something smells rotten in London, and it’s not Kate Moss. Okay, something else smells rotten in London. The Titan Arum, or Corpse Flower, which blooms once every six-to-nine years, has blossomed much earlier than expected due to unusually warm temperatures last year.

“The Titan, standing at 164 cms tall is now giving off a revolting stink,” said curator Don Murray. “It is a cross between rotten cheese, dog poo and something dead.”

“Tonight the flowers will be in full bloom — as will the stench — and that will last through Tuesday and Wednesday. But by Thursday it will have started to die back,” he told Reuters from the project in Cornwall 220 miles southwest of London.

Botany geeks are traveling from all over the Northern Hemisphere to watch in wonder as the amazing plant shambles through the city on its quest for human brains. Naked women and assholish control freaks are warned to be on particular guard.

World to Get Less Aggressive, More Dirrty

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

With war, genocide and other atrocities raging througout the world, it’s easy to feel pretty helpless. Fear not though. You too can help curb worldwide negativity by participating in an upcoming event called the Global Orgasm:

The intent is that the participants concentrate any thoughts during and after orgasm on peace. The combination of high-energy orgasmic energy combined with mindful intention may have a much greater effect than previous mass meditations and prayers.

The goal is to add so much concentrated and high-energy positive input into the energy field of the Earth that it will reduce the current dangerous levels of aggression and violence throughout the world.

With that in mind, it seems like no coincidence that Christina Aguilera has decided to whore it up on her tour:

Pop star Christina Aguilera has vowed to make her new tour raunchier than ever. The singer vowed to tone down her sexiness after marrying Jordan Bratman last year, but instead she plans to channel her marital bliss onstage with an extravaganza including circus acts and costumes designed by Roberto Cavalli.

So when you think about it, the Dalai Lama is kind of a lightweight compared to Xtina. Personally, I only jack off to him about half as often as I do to her. Seriously, I heard one time on the set of the Dirrty video, a bunch of dead orphans came back to life and joined the Peace Corp.

Gandhi? MLK? Maybe if they’d gotten boob jobs and wore assless chaps they wouldn’t have been such failures.

Foxy Brown pleads innocent to beating up some nail salon stylists, then reverses it and pleads innocent. Then double-reverses that which makes her still innocent. Then triple-dog dares someone to find her guilty of killing JonBenet Ramsey. Then backs off, whacks off and fucks the other two. All were confused.

Global Warming = Awesome Awsomeness

Wednesday, August 9th, 2006

Okay, despite overwhelming scientific evidence, we’re not willing to say that global warming is in actuallity a real thing. And, if it is real–which it isn’t–we’re not saying that humans are responsible. But, even if both of those things were true–which they totally totally are not!–if you think about it, global warming is actually kind of bitchin’!

Just ask National Review editor James S. Robbins

Personally, I don’t know what all the shouting is about. Global warming is great. Granted, maybe it isn’t really happening, and if it is there are strong reasons to doubt that humans have anything to do with it. But if the world is warming, I say “bravo.”

Now, many of you Islamo-Fascist tree-hugging nancy-boys out there may have a hard time grasping this, since you’re all so busy blaming America first, but there are at least a bazillion reasons why global warming totally completely rocks! Here’s just a few…

  • Brand new beach front property in Kansas!
  • 3,000-degree temperatures in August will get us all prepared for our inevitable colonization of the Sun.
  • As in all disasters, this will be a great opportunity for rich people to get richer. And for poor people to die.
  • If Hurricane Katrina taught us anything, almost all of the hundreds of thousands of people who die will be poor and black. Not to be classist or racist or assholish, but they almost always vote Democrat. And it would be dangerous for everyone to have a Democrat in office during such an emergency.
  • If evolution were real, which it’s not, we’d all certainly grow really boss gills and fins and get to marry beautiful topless mermaids with perfect aquamarine nipples and live happily ever after in a magical kingdom under the sea.

Electricity is For Pussies

Monday, July 24th, 2006

If you’re one of the 3,000 “customers” in Queens who still hasn’t gotten your motherfucking power back after, like, a fucking week of showering in the dark and tripping over garbage that you don’t even know why you left in the middle of the room in the first place, here’s what we have to say to you…

Stop being a little whiny bitch.

You don’t need electricity to have fun. Or work. Or live. Or just, you know, not go crazy. Fuck no! There’s plenty of superfun things you can still do. Here’s a few suggestions…

  • Have sex with some random stranger just so that you can brush your teeth in their bathroom.
  • Drink way too much in Manhattan and then fall asleep on a nice air-conditioned subway car.
  • Begin composing long and boring “Back in the blackout of aught-six…” anecdotes.
  • Masturbate. A lot.
  • Think about masturbating. A lot.
  • Not get any work done.
  • Yell at your desk lamp.
  • Fume.
  • Die.

In case you’re reading this while trapped in a meat locker like what happened on the Brady Bunch that one time, here’s a news flash: It’s fucking hot out there!


Like, not just hot, but, like, really really fucking hot! Holy shit! I saw a man burst into flames on the street a few minutes ago. And then a bunch of people went and huddled around him because his flaming carcass was less hot than the air everywhere else. (Yes, it’s that hot.)

In some areas of the country, the heat index is reaching a record 115 motherfucking degrees. People are dying. Massive black-outs are expected, due to people going fucking nuts with the air conditioning.

Tomorrow, the temperature is expected to drop to a chilly 85 degrees. Have your sweater ready.

Well, we’ve already discussed talking monkeys, mind-reading computers and singing Paris Hiltons, so I guess it’s about time we got into some writing worms.

What if I were to tell you that the worms of the world, after having spent the past several thousand or so years carefully drafting their message to humanity, are finally ready to reach across the superphylum-boundary and communicate with mankind? You’d be skeptical, right? Well, take a look at this green tomato, and its message of hope:

hi

Actually, the message appears to be “!h’i_“, but let’s give the worms a break, because they’re new to the whole grammatology thing. And the message is a tad vapid. We’d maybe like a little explanation for intestinal parasitic infestation or something. But you’re missing the point.

The worms are talking to us!

I know what you’re thinking. “What’s the big deal? Alan Colmes wrote an entire book.” Well, he had a really good editor.

Jimmy Hoffa Fever! Catch It!

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

It seems that Michiganians can’t get enough Jimmy Hoffa, Jimmy Hoffa, Jimmy Hoffa!

As the FBI is in the midst of tearing the holy hell out of everything looking for the dessicated corpse that was the subject of many popular sitcom-friendly Mafia jokes throughout the early-1980s, a Milford Township bakery is cashing in on all the hoopla by selling specialty cupcakes designed to look like Jimmy Hoffa’s zombie green(???) hand reaching menacingly from beneath the earth.

We’re not making fun of this bakery. We think this is awesome. (Plus, we think the blurry girl in the background is kinda cute.) More bakeries should be getting into the same spirit. Bakeries out there who read this blog, we have some ideas for you:

  • A smashed jelly doughnut sprinkled with metal shards to signify the violent rebellion that has recently struck East Timor.
  • A cheese danish topped with a large mushroom to pay homage to Iran’s newly aquired nuclear power.
  • One half of a black-and-white cookie submerged in a bucket of toxic water in anticipation of how New Orleans will handle the upcoming hurricane season.
