Flawless adaptations etc.

Stephen Colbert announced on “The Colbert Report” that he is exploring a presidential run in South Carolina, and made it legal by handing control of his super PAC to Jon Stewart in the opening segment of Thursday night’s show.

“I am proud to announce that I am forming an exploratory committee to lay the groundwork for my possible candidacy for president of the United States of America of South Carolina,” Colbert said during the Thursday evening show, several hours before airtime on Comedy Central.

“This is a difficult decision. I’ve talked it over with my money. I’ve talked it over with my spiritual adviser.”

Trevor Potter, the former Federal Election Commission chairman, acts as Colbert’s lawyer and was a guest on the show. “You cannot be a candidate and run a super PAC,” Potter said. “That would be coordinating with yourself.”

Colbert’s super PAC is Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow. His 501(c)4 is the Colbert Super PAC SHH [as in “shh”] Institute.

The stunt was part of Colbert’s continuing effort to expose what he considers absurdities in U.S. election law.

Oh god. Wow. These men. Seriously, what a horrible world it would be without people like this. Without nerds and science and all that stuff. And without humor and imagination.

Whelp, that’s it. I’ve seen the most flawless thing the internet has to offer. I quit. Goodnight.

Taken from the Honest Girl Scouts campaign. For a campaign trying to get people /not/ to buy cookies and /not/ support the GSUSA, this is doing an awful lot to suddenly make me want /to/ support the GSUSA. (and I’m saying this a a former Girl Scout of about 6 years who hasn’t bought cookies in years because they’re too expensive). 

I see so much acceptance here, and especially in a time in children’s lives where acceptance is so important, taking that away from them is just cruel.

If you don’t have a niece or young neighbor, plug in your ZIP code here to find a pro-abortion feminist-minded little girl to sell you some sweet, sweet progressive cookies.

Yum!

Yet another reason for me not to feel guilty for buying girl scout cookies. 

TIME TO PICK UP A FEW BOXES OF TAGALONGS.

Aw hell now I gotta go buy me some girl scout cookies.

British actors in drag.

who’s next to frankenstein in the black corset?

Jude Law

I love me some Daniel Craig, but he makes one hell of an ugly woman.  Sir Ian, on the other hand, is making me yearn for the touch of a septuagenarian lady…

Someone tell me…why are British dudes so willing to be photographed/play parts in drag and so many Amurrkan dudes are so appalled and repulsed by it?

Do they not know how much their fanbase would expand with one little drag role?

I - but Legolas is a dude, though.

omg.
no.

This reminds me of those photosets that are someone’s eyes, nose, and mouth without the rest of the face but this is actually her face and I think I need more therapy now.

Omg everyone look she’s spent hours in heavy makeup so she looks good for normal cameras from a reasonable fucking distance but when you zoom in like a motherfucker you can see her pores and lip liner everybody freak out right now!!!

I don’t get why people say “Happy Holidays” so as not to offend people

Like, if someone told me “Happy Hanukkah” I’d be like

Thanks bro

Not Jewish

But I still like that you took the time to include me in your festivities

Just because you aren’t offended doesn’t automatically mean no one is offended, Jesus.

Is it really that hard to be all-inclusive and say “Happy Holidays”?

Honestly I think if you’re offended by a friendly, well-meaning ‘Merry Christmas!’ you need to look at your life, look at your choices. I mean I’m all for saying ‘Happy Holidays’ and I understand that not everyone celebrates Christmas but really, even if you celebrate Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Some third thing and the cashier at Best Buy tells you ‘Merry Christmas’ instead of ‘Happy Holidays’ you’ll survive.

People need to stop acting like hearing ‘Merry Christmas’ will make them turn to stone or some shit.  

WHEN WILL IT END?

Finally got my registration hold cleared, but all the classes I need are closed.

Soren has a nasty habit of burying the lede when he’s bragging, so I’ve taken the liberty of coming up with a better description/title.

SOREN WROTE AND PERFORMED A RAP ABOUT LIFE IN THE DUSTBOWL ERA

sorenbowie:

I’m a strong believer that narrative fiction is the last unexplored quadrant of rap. But everyone breathe easy, I’m filling it with this song. It’s about a family moving to California for the gold rush and getting stuck in the mountains before eating each other. Thanks to Greg Blum for producing it.

This is definitely the best rap about the gold rush I’ve ever heard.
