There’s a lot of heavy shit going on right now; those of us who follow politics closely can attest to that. I don’t know about you, but I can use a good belly laugh now and then.
I stumbled across this video on my Twitter timeline, and I couldn’t stop laughing. I present to you, via Jezebel, drag queens singing a parody of Wilson Phillips endorsing the homophobic Chick-fil-A. Enjoy. Oh, NSFW!
So, apparently, Sarah Palin feels it’s about time for her to be yapping her mouth about whatever. I try not to pay attention because I feel my BP shoot up and my IQ plummet every time I hear her talk. She had been pleasantly missing from the news for the past few months – until the HBO movie came out, the one with the luscious Julianne Moore (which I did not watch because I lived through that shit. Why would I want to go through it again?). Then, suddenly, BAM. Palin was in the news again decrying the movie and saying stupid shit such as the president is black, y’all, er, not American, er, you know what I’m trying to say and wants to take us back to pre-Civil War America. WTF?
She was rightly mocked for her statements, and as noted by my angry black overlady, #Obama2012 put together an ad using Palin’s words to raise some money. That was a no-brainer, much like Palin herself, given that Palin practically served herself up on a platter with her inane comments. By the way, why is this irrelevant jackhole given any airtime at all? I know, I know, the ratings and the clicks. Anyway, two-day circus, and scene. (Click for more on the talking stupid lady)
Do you like Nathan Fillion, rugged-yet-sensitive-Canadian-acting-person, of Firefly, Castle, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dr. Horrible, and Waitress fame? Do you like to laugh? Are you, maybe — just maybe — a wee bit of a geek?
Of course you do, of course you do, and of course you are!
That being the case, you will understand why the following made me so happy. I give to you: Nathan Fillion guesting on a web series starring his friends (I think! I don’t know what it’s like to be Nathan Fillion’s friend. I can only imagine. And what I’m imagining looks like Canadian unicorns) Tim and Sam Daly, being — let’s face it — stinkin’ funny. And also, unavoidably, inevitably: Ruggedly handsome. He carries his curse well.
Four minutes and fifty-three seconds of sheer delight. Enjoy (after the jump, people)!
In honor of today’s many GOP primaries (eleven!ten!), I thought I’d just leave this here:
For details on the foregoing, you could always read my recent post entitled The GOP rides into the sunset, but there’s nothing like a good graphic artist to make a person humble: What I took 850 words to write, graphic artist Will Amato (I’m guessing that’s him in the Batman mask on his website’s front page) accomplished in 12 lines.
You might well imagine that armed with this information, I proceeded to the YouTube. Whereupon I found the following piece of sheer delight: Captain Claw singing the undeniably catchy “When You’ve Got to Go” song.
Day-umn. I went to bed in the year 2012 and woke up sometime in the 50s….the 1850s. What with Darrell Issa holding his ‘no girls allowed’ panel on contraception* and Frothy Mix’s backer, Foster Friess’s advice on birth control, and I don’t care that he claims it was just a joke – hey, Foster. You can have sex with the woman keeping her legs closed. I’m just sayin’ – it’s not been a good week for vaginae and uteri havers. Let’s not even talk about VA and state-sanctioned rape because then I’ll have to go out and rusty pitchfork™ someone, and I’m not in the mood to put on clothes and leave the house.
By the way, what’s going on in VA is unconstitutional and will be challenged**. In the meantime, countless women will have to endure having something forcibly shoved up their vaginae without their consent and for no reason at all except to slut-shame them/intimidate them into not having an abortion. That’s rape, regardless of if it’s sanctioned by law or not, and there is seriously something wrong with the people who thinks this is perfectly OK.
Anyway, all this anti-woman bullshit is pissing me the fuck off so much, I am contemplating pulling a Lysistrata. Oh, I can hear you protesting already. You’re saying, “Hold up, asiangrrlMN. Lysistrata organized the women of Greece to withhold sex with their husbands until they ended the Peloponnesian War. What the hell does that have to do with this bullshit the GOP is doing?” (Click for more GOP misogyny)
There you go. Funny or Die has produced the best possible response to the Hoekstra Super Bowl ad (about which your Angry Black Bloggers have fulminated here, here, and here) — because honestly now, the GOP is nothing if not laughable these days. (Ok, they’re also a smidge bit terrifying, but you see what I mean).
