When you’re born you get a ticket to the freak show. When you’re born in America, you get a front-row seat.

It’s difficult to know where to begin…but the beginning seems a good a place as any, right?
Does Fear of Eating Human Finger Parts Lessen Your Enjoyment of Arby’s Roast Beef?. I don’t know about you, but the idea of a little extra meat in my meat is…well, disturbing. Seriously, if a finger is in your roast beef sandwich, wouldn’t you begin wondering what other parts of the owner of the aforementioned finger were added for flavoring?
This is why I don’t eat at Arby’s (that and the fact that I’m admittedly and proudly a foodie)…and it’s also why going vegetarian seems like a realistic option.
5 Ways to Make America Less Fat. If you wonder what may well eventually bring this country to its knees, try sitting in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant. Watch people walk (and all too often waddle) in and out the front door. That should provide a quick education about why Americans are becoming progressively more obese. The sad reality is that most Americans not only don’t think about the food they eat, they’re nutritionally illiterate. Most Americans eat without thinking; they barely recognize- if they care at all- that food is fuel. No American would think of putting bad fuel into the gas tank of their F150, but they’ll think nothing of putting bad fuel into their own fuel tank.
I may be a foodie, and I’ll wear the “food snob” label with no small amount of pride, but if you won’t be discriminating about what you put into your mouth there’s no way you can claim to be healthy.
It’s Official: Watching Fox Makes You Stupider. In the same way most Americans don’t think about the nutritional value of what they put in their mouths, the same can be said for the ideas they allow to be installed in their brains. Any reasonable, discerning person with even a minimal IQ can understand that Fox News Channel is “fair and balanced” in the same way Ted Bundy was about healthy relationships. FNC is all about being the propaganda arm of the GOP and the RIght’s mouthpiece…and yet it has the highest ratings of any cable news outlet. This would seem to indicate that Americans are far more comfortable being told what to think than with doing the heavy lifting and thinking for themselves.
They’re called the “American Sheeple” for a reason, people….
Whiskey Lube: Epic Meal Time Launches Bourbon-Flavored Personal Lubricant. So…you like whiskey and you love sex. This being America, the land of innovation and completely unnecessary products, of course someone thought there would be a market for…wait for it…Whiskey Dick lube. Touted by some marketing geek with WAY too much time on their hands as the “gold standard of booze-flavored personal lubricants,” Whiskey Dick is…well, words fail me at the moment.
(Santorum- now available in Whiskey flavor!!)
Evidently someone must have thought that drinking and having sex as separate activities was just too damned inefficient…so why not combine the two?
Yes, kids…I does love me some America, knowhutimean??
