“The Neverending Infinite Jest” is dead on.
“The Neverending Infinite Jest” is dead on.
Somehow I really don’t see much difference between the pictures in #9; they’re both depressing and disgusting.
Question: why would anyone just leave a coffin in the middle of nowhere like that?
#2 It’s the look on the wife’s face, and the way she’s holding the iron that makes me want to see the same scene five minutes later…
For a minute I thought you were talking about Kim Kardashian and her sisters, another easy target.
Not that No.4 hasn’t happened to people in general, offensive or not. Earworms are no fun, esp if you can’t remember all the words. “The Name Game”, anyone?
You’ve just given me some great ideas!
I do respect dogs, but when a cat loves you, you know you’re loved.
Not on the subject, but WWoftheW’s face when she yells SIKE looks for all the world like she’s ready to say, “Fooled ya! I invested in Scotch Guard so I’m not going anywhere!”
Trouble is, Stephen King himself liked the movie version better than his own!
I’ll agree with you about the book version.
I’m still mystified at anything that promises to make children and adults “as FAT at pigs” and promotes it as a GOOD thing. #7 I know the point is to regain health, but seriously, couldn’t they have thought abut their choice of words?
#13 Even Jesus would have to rate this, “Well, nice try at best.”
18, 19, 20 are pretty hopeless as well.
I’m reminded of the Bush Beans commercial, where Duke the Dog dresses as a ghost to wheedle the secret recipe out of his master. Alas, it doesn’t work because “Grandpa didn’t have a tail!”
I admit I don’t enjoy bodily function humor anymore, or tired sex jokes; many of them are barely funny if that. But there isn’t much else out there.
People wonder why I have no sense of humor.
Aside from a cannonball, it’s hard not to find a weapon that’s a phallic symbol.
As others have noted, the “Larry Potter” book, by Nancy Stouffer, actually came out before Rowling’s famous series. and dealt with a boy getting glasses. There actually are similar details, but the two books are rather different.
The “Crispy Hexagons” look like a store brand, I see them at the local Food Lion all the time. They’re pretty good.
All the rest…
I’ve never been thru no 4, but that has got to be one heck of a mess.
It was the only way He could get away from this clingy pest.
Now what if the question were giving up BACON or oral sex?
Someone made the comparison that if these girls were saying “like” instead of f***, it would be just as annoying: “Like, a girl isn’t just like boobs and butt, she has like, a brain, and she can, like, use it, you know, like, and that, like, she shouldn’t have to look like the magazines, like, that we like, need to give girls books and like, and that we aren’t, like going to, like, being paid like, less…”
I know I’ve gotten old, considering my answers.
I have to agree with you about the swearing. While it’s true that they are “nothing but words”, they’re still needless and distracting. Yes it’s fine to speak any way you wish and know you don’t have to fear what people think, the constant spatter of such language somehow spoils the message. It’s like introducing people to your bouncy new Labrador puppy, the Ne Plus Ultra of Cute Puppies, and not worrying about the fact that her cute little feet are liberally caked in dog shit.
True and sad. Yet the swearing is the equivalent of a mosquito in your ear, very very tiny, unbelievably irritating and distracting.
I get the point of this, and that yes, sexism still exists, in the workplace, in policies, in the public consensus, etc. Yet listening to these girls quipping “fuck” is like having to eat sand in your food. No, it’s not “more offensive”, it’s just annoying, and I think it distracts from the point more than it needs to.
There is still a lot to do in the business between men and women, and cussing little girls are a low priority. Heck, I don’t like it when little boys cuss, or grown men, or grown women. But this just seems out of place, the equivalent of constant knuckle-cracking, it doesn’t help.
One problem with changing the Redskins mascot to a (sunburned) white man is that it just makes the whole image not just silly but wussy as well; no one is going to rally up support for some wimpy dude trying to show off. Red Caspar is just pointless.
Do the Minnesota Vikings have this problem? Their image is even less accurate than Washington’s Amerindian one. Personally I enjoy whenever they play each other, it’s the Battle Of The Stereotypes.
#4 does make a loopy sense, New York City is certainly unlike the rest of the United States.
Of course you could say that about several other cities as well.
How about a UK version?
And so another former hero is fallen. Whatever good the man did, whatever pleasure he gave, whatever morals he stressed, all, all are negated, erased, removed from the public memory for good. Bill Cosby no longer exists outside a courtroom.
Call me racist, but this is worth a grin. Don’t know how many people know that “soy” means “I am” as well as the versatile bean.
Maybe it could be for vegetarian Latinos?
#10 has got some serious ‘splainin’ to do.
It has nothing to do with conservative or liberal, just an stupid idea that got way out of hand. In fact it does look like a stylized tree, or a game piece, or the knob on a bedpost. I never thought of it as a butt plug and am tired of hearing that it is.
I just wonder what the artist’s intention was; if it really was meant to be a disguised bp then there’s no hope.
Better get a tight-fitting lid on them, as bodies do start getting ripe after a day or two.
Why does it have to be a butt plug? Is no one allowed to have a clean mind anymore?
Anyone concerned about gay marriage had better read this link: http://www.scifiwright.com/2014/10/snap-out-of-it/
Register and make your voice known; not all intelligent people are willing to embrace gay marriage.
Somehow the Unwritten Rules never really change.
Always like the big guy’s expression as he sees the kids trying to hide: “Okay, this is just too easy.”
I am getting the word out to all Buzzfeeders that the fight is far from over, and that not all intelligent people have embraced gay marriage.
Check it out, register, and leave your thoughts.
I fear I need to start alerting vigilant BuzzFeeders that the battle is far from won, and that not all intelligent people accept gay marriage.
Register. Speak up.
True, but this does go arm in arm with “If Mama ain’t happy, NOBODY’s happy!”
