Now we have all these different iterations...
like Marcy and Peppermint Patty:
and the "Ain't Nobody Got Time for That" lady:
If you've never seen the "ain't nobody got time for that" video, check it here. I seriously hope that woman gets some sort of compensation for being an Internet sensation.
I kind of feel like the opponents of gay marriage have lost the battle of the symbols. All they have is this:
and I'm pretty sure that Switzerland is going to send them a cease and desist letter pretty soon.
In a polarizing debate it's nice to see one side off the other an olive branch. Especially when that olive branch is actually a delicious chicken sandwich. A Chick-fil-A in California offered free meals to a group of gay marriage supporters who were demonstrating close to the restaurant. The franchisee handed out free meal vouchers to the group and was quoted as saying, "We serve anyone...Chick-fil-A has never been about hate." Except of course for the Chick-fil-A cows who are constantly trying to incite chicken genocide with that "Eat Mor Chikin" business.
It was actually a pretty big week in gay news, as Jenna Wolfe, the weekend news reader on the Today show, came out as a gay, pregnant American. I'm sure that everyone at Today was thrilled because it provided a two second distraction from the fact that the show is basically imploding. As you may know, we all hate Matt Lauer because we hold him responsible for getting Ann Curry fired as co-anchor.
I'm pretty sure I know where Gawker came up with that graphic of the Today show burning:
She must be a terrible liar what with her entire outfit being on fire and not just her pants. Because I'm old, I don't know that much about Rita Ora except that she's British and she and poor Rob Kardashian had a terrible break up which they tastefully played out on Twitter so that we are all privy to the details. Here's my thought on Rob Kardashian (and I literally have one thought): he reminds me of this study that found that rats with lots of sisters are less attractive to potential mates than rats with an even number of brothers and sisters or more brothers than sisters. Rob Kardashian has three sisters and two half sisters. Hence, "poor Rob Kardashian."
This makes me glad that we didn't have any more girl children because the Boy is going to need all the help he can get. For instance, they started talking about good touch-bad touch at school and here's what he told me.
Boy: Ms. Perry told us there are five types of bad touches: hitting, pinching, slapping, spanking, and kicking. But then I reminded her that there is another bad touch which is pushing someone from a very high structure.
Me: You are right, that would be a bad touch. Is that all you talked about?
Boy: Yeah. Oh, also she said that hugging can be a good touch, but I said if you hug someone too tight then it can be a bad touch.
Me: Did you talk about anything else?
He's right, though. Here's an example:
Have a good weekend!
