Stupid Sex Tricks: How NOT to hug a tree

Environmentalism: Ur doin it rong. Also, stay the fuck off of drugs. And bros on drugs.

Never Cry Wolf (just throw strychnine)

This…is unbefuckinglievable. This is the sort of shit that would have been done 50 years ago. It’s also the sort of shit Canada isn’t supposed to be doing anymore. And yet, this is happening right now, and for the worst of all conceivable reasons:

Late last week, internal documents went public showing Canada is . . . → Read More: Never Cry Wolf (just throw strychnine)

I don’t think this will cure my cold.

Yes, kiddies, your auntie Bina is still under the weather. But since laughter is supposed to be the best medicine, let’s take the Rick Mercer cure, shall we?

Oof. Just made myself cough. Guess I’m not cured after all! But it does make me feel better to know that Peter Fucking Kent and Ezra . . . → Read More: I don’t think this will cure my cold.

No more fucking Pink Things

I am the daughter of a breast cancer survivor. And I have just sworn never again to buy another “Pink for the Cure” (or whatever they call it) thing.

Not that I don’t love my pink long-sleeved Columbia t-shirt, or my pink lipsticks (all 11 of ‘em), but this whole damn pink thing has . . . → Read More: No more fucking Pink Things

FUX Snooze gets pwned by Muppets

And as usual, Miss Piggy gets the best lines.

Fortuna Silver = Nasty Ass Honey Badger

Yes, it’s true. Don’t believe me? Watch this…

And then read this, and tell me if you don’t think so. Here, I’ll even excerpt a few key passages for you…

Vancouver-based mining company Fortuna Silver says it has nothing to do with the shooting death of a protester in a town near the company’s . . . → Read More: Fortuna Silver = Nasty Ass Honey Badger

Cops Behaving Badly: Doubleplusungood

Today’s entry in the annals of rotten cop behavior is a two-fer. First, from Florida, a disturbing case of racist elder abuse, caught on dashcam (despite the cop’s efforts to switch the camera off):

Details from Raw Story:

Technicians in Florida have recovered dashcam video of a Melbourne police officer beating a 66-year-old . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: Doubleplusungood

Chairman Mao rolls in his grave

150 computer factory workers had to be talked down from a “suicide jump” in protest of lousy working conditions at the infamous Foxconn. This would not have made the news when Mao Zedong was in charge of China…

The workers were eventually coaxed down after two days on top of their three-floor plant in . . . → Read More: Chairman Mao rolls in his grave

Keystone XL: Dirty oil barons threaten Obama

The clearest, most concise explanation yet of why the Keystone XL pipeline project, which would ferry dirty tar-sands oil from Alberta to Texas, must not proceed. Yes, all this talk of “ending our dependence on foreign oil” is a LIE. Shocking? Wait, it gets worse. The pipeline would also threaten a geologically unstable area . . . → Read More: Keystone XL: Dirty oil barons threaten Obama

Cops Behaving Badly: Fuck the Police (Before They Fuck You)

(Logo from the infamous Dave Rabbit sweatshirt, a limited-edition Vietnam War pirate radio joke product. Back story, in case you’re interested, here.)

Pardon my Anglo-Saxon and the explicit artwork, but given what shit is hitting the fan in Britain, it was only fittin’…

Undercover police officers routinely adopted a tactic of “promiscuity” with the . . . → Read More: Cops Behaving Badly: Fuck the Police (Before They Fuck You)

“Did you call him a piece of shit?”

Justin Trudeau, Liberal MP for Papineau, explains why he lost his shit at so-called environment minister Peter Fucking Kent yesterday in the House of Commons. He apologizes for his intemperate language but, take note, NOT for the sentiments expressed therein. I think the only thing he should have apologized for is insulting fecal matter. . . . → Read More: “Did you call him a piece of shit?”

Peter Kent, ignorant SupposiTory hack

Q. How does one get to be Minister of the Environment without any scientific knowledge whatsoever?

A. By being a faithful, appointed HarpoCon hack beforehand, and then coasting into office on that.

BTW, Peter Kent hates Venezuela. So it’s no surprise that he has scant respect for anything on Earth that he . . . → Read More: Peter Kent, ignorant SupposiTory hack

Economics for Dummies: Another horrible trapped-miner story

If a bankster falls in the forest…

…it makes the odd news headlines: “Shark in a boat” seems so last month. Now it’s “shark in the forest.” A call to police reporting an unusual odor on Thursday night led New Hampshire authorities to find a shark decomposing in the forest, WMUR-9 reports. According to The Associated Press, the six- to eight-foot blue […] . . . → Read More: If a bankster falls in the forest…
