What The Confederate Flag Really Means Now

What The Confederate Flag Really Means Now
There are two sides to the debate over what the Confederate flag symbolizes. Republican types say it stands for pickup trucks, drinking beer in the sun, and boiled peanuts. This is clearly not the case and the early adopters of the Confederacy would have been appalled by your homoerotic tight jeaned country singers. The other side says ...

The Duggars Are Awful People, But Point The Finger At TLC

The Duggars Are Awful People, But Point The Finger At TLC
19 Kids and Counting will become the second of TLC’s shows to be cancelled because the southern minstrel spectacle it exploited turned out to be a pathetic cycle of ignorance. There’s a seedy underbelly to the backwoods fools you’re chuckling at. Amid revelations that the Duggar family knew and concealed the fact that their anti-gay crusading son ...

Dr. Drew’s Hypocrisy Dangerously Douchey

Dr. Drew's Hypocrisy Dangerously Douchey
Dr. Drew’s resting pious face and the way he portrays what appears to be soul crushing empathy while listening to Natalie Holloway gossip has been growing tired for some time now. You get the feeling he routinely breaks down in tears on his drive home about the fate of Amanda Bynes. I’m not sure how much of this is feigned ...

Looking Back On Rick James' Appearance On Judge Joe Brown
I couldn’t tell if it was a dream or a fleeting repressed memory. For years I’ve talked about it and been met with blank stares. Maybe you should see someone, they’d say. It could really help. If I was losing my mind I refused to admit it. When it got really bad I’d stand on the street ...

Toyota Owns Halftime?

Toyota Owns Halftime?
I was watching the NBA on ESPN when I heard something peculiar. The game went from the end of the second quarter to halftime and I heard the announcer proclaim in a seventy year old fratty smoker’s growl that it was: The Toyota Halftime. Did I miss something? Isn’t it supposed to be The Toyota Halftime ...

Why Did Iggy Azalea?

Why do I know who Iggy Azalea is?  It’s because I have to know who Some Chick is. Here’s how this works: When you’re an aspiring musician who can’t sing or play an instrument, the competition is pretty rough. Even if you’re talented, pretty, and musically proficient you aren’t going to get anywhere waiting around. ...

Is Honey Boo Boo Still Funny? 1

Is Honey Boo Boo Still Funny?
I never had an ethical problem sitting down to watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo so I could gawk at some disgusting obese tragedies of the Civil War spit out inane jokes fed to them by deservedly patronizing on-set producers. The irony is said producers probably think they’re really sophisticated and smart comparatively. Based on ...
