Palin has maintained that Obama’s effort to combat child obesity — which was recently aided by the passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act — is one that seeks to take away “God-given rights to make our own decisions.” Some have since slammed that comment as Palin’s demanding that Americans cling to their “God-Given right to be fat.”

Got a SPAM comment today in response to the “Suspect Denies Owning Cocaine Hidden in his Ass” post. Goes to show you these SPAM assclowns don’t have a clue as to how obvious they are. It reads as follows:
“Sorry for my bad english. Thank you so much for your good post. Your post helped me in my college assignment, If you can provide me more details please email me.”
So…I wonder what school he goes to? What class would have shoved-up-the-ass-dope-smuggling as a topic? What details may I include in my email? Ah, the mystery…….ROFLMFAO!

C&T: I’ve lived here for 15 years and I can tell ya the level of STUPID around here astounds and amazes me daily. Some may counter that the average IQ dropped significantly when I moved here. Could be. But the stupid here reflects not so much lack of education as lack of common sense. As in NONE. Nada. Zip.
Stores do the best they can to stock aisles with similar products, making it easier to compare brands and find the things you want. But sometimes, whether for marketing purposes or just by accident, things are placed next to each other on a shelf in a seemingly ridiculous way. Why would you place condoms next to diapers? As a passive aggressive reminder?

Although private contractors or practices receive most of their business through word-of-mouth and personal references, it’s often necessary to solicit business by advertising to the masses. Unfortunately, a knack for a particular trade does not always translate to solid promotional instincts. Most ads promoting a realtor, lawyer or private contractor are exceedingly bland, but sometimes they really succeed at grabbing attention — even if it’s for unintended reasons. Here are some of the most bizarre, misguided or clumsy attempts at self-promotion.

OCTOBER 1–A Florida man arrested Wednesday on drug charges told cops that a bag of cocaine found hidden inside his buttocks did not belong to him. Though the suspect did cop to ownership of a bag of marijuana hidden alongside the coke.

And finally this midday: They caught a real jailbird recently in Columbia…Lorenzo the parrot was arrested during a drug bust there.The charge? Aiding and abetting drug traffickers. Lorenzo is trained as a lookout…and yells out a warning when police…or anyone suspicious to him…approaches…and, it turns out he is not alone in his criminal activities. Animal officials say they’ve been given more than 1,000 birds trained as lookouts, this is one jailbird who won’t fly the coop any time soon.

For every quality reality show like “Top Chef” or “The Amazing Race,” there are a dozen degrading, offensive and downright tacky reality programs that make TV just a little bit dumber. Plenty of shows out there appeal to audiences’ worst nature and are chock full of kitschy, guilty pleasure value (we’re looking at you, VH1). But every so often we come across a show so indefensible, it makes us cringe at the fact that it was even picked up. Here’s a collection of some of the most inappropriate and classless shows to ever make it on television.

C&T: I’m not a fan of “reality” TV shows and never watch them; I think they’re more bullshit than actual reality. I will admit a guilty pleasure: I have a huge “thing” for Gordon Ramsay. Maybe because he’s a fellow Scot. Anyway, it takes a LOT to disgust me. A LOT. But I can honestly say I absolutely despise the pedophile fest “Toddlers and Tiaras“. Those poor kids are forced to perform by morbidly obese, ugly mothers with big hair living vicariously through their little girls. These women will mortgage the farm to pay for everything BECAUSE WINNING IS EVERYTHING. What the fuckin’ FUCK!? I hope they choke on their stretch pants.
Ye fucked it up, me hearties!

A worm known affectionately as “Here You Have” based on the subject line of the infected e-mail used to propagate it has quickly spread into a global malware attack. The efficacy of the simple, and poorly worded e-mail luring users to click on a malicious link demonstrates why we need a whole new approach to malware defense.
