Sorry, you're not on The List
Jezebel.com believes all blog commenters are not equal. The site's editor is taking a velvet rope approach to who gets in. A select few- the "beautiful, thoughtful, intelligent, well-argued, fair minded" humorous folks who have proven themselves worthy - are being elevated to star status. Their comments will be shown above all others. And they will decide if commoners get bumped up, or down. Jezebel. Seems aptly named.
Bellies & Baseball
The Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team gave a Salute to Pregnancy at the ballpark this week. Expectant parents were invited to participate in events like Barefoot and Pregnant, Lamaze class in centerfield (pre-game, phew!), Trimester Trike races for dads and 7th Inning Stretch Marks. Grand prize? Give birth DURING the game and win family season tickets for life.
AC standard, bandoleer optional
Buy a new truck from Max Motors, get a free AK-47! Yep, a car dealer in Butler, Missouri is giving away assault rifles. Tax and license extra. Somebody should tell the Show Me state legislature. This can't possibly be legal, can it?
NASA can put a man on the moon, but 40 years later can't fix the space station toilet. There are 13 astronauts up there and one broken loo. Built by the lowest bidder. Is this a great country or what.
We know, the dog ate it.
Two California teens lost their homework. It was in their book bags. Left rather hastily at somebody's house. Not long after they broke in, actually. Yes their names were on the papers. But those kids have nothing on, quite possibly, the dumbest guy in Pennsylvania. He tried to stick up a retired police chief... at a cops convention.
C'est La Vie is our feature tune by Adriana Kaegi, the silky contralto who reinvents Electronica, Dance and Lounge music genres with every tune on her just-released album TAG. Amazon named it their CD of the month! Don't go away when we say goodbye. Adriana pokes fun at the upper crust who call the 'Hamptons' home- our bonus tune for you!
