Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Collard Greens and Cornbread

This is the menu that caused all sorts of angst and hurt feelings recently at Wright State University in Fairborn, Ohio because… MANUFACTURED, MISAPPROPRIATED OUTRAGE, Y’ALL!

Apparently the folks in food service at Wright State thought serving authentic soul food would be a nice way to honor black students and guests (daughters of famous civil rights leaders) one day during Black History Month. Think again.

Clearly serving fried chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens and corn bread is tantamount to saying the N-word. You know, black people are allowed to do it, but it’s racially offensive and degrading if anyone else does it. I’m certainly not advocating use of the N-word. In fact, I find it offensive when anyone, including African Americans, use it.  I’m simply illustrating this as another case of liberal PC double standardization run amuck.

Cruncles…As in Creepy Uncles

Lots of families have cruncles… as in creepy uncles.

That’s Stephanie Carter, wife of incoming Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and the latest casualty of socially inappropriate behavior committed by Vice President, Joe Biden. This awkward moment – made all the more awkward by the get-your-paws-off-me-you-psycho-nut-job expression on Stephanie Carter’s face – happened just yesterday. Apparently, Cruncle Joey beckoned Mrs. Carter to stand with him during Secretary Carter’s remarks at his swearing-in ceremony in Washington, DC. The veep then placed his hands on Mrs. Carter’s shoulders (for about 20 seconds) before leaning in to whisper in her ear or cop a sniff of her hair, both equally disconcerting given his eyes were closed at the time. Just another day at the office for Joe Biden…

First Vagina Cookies. Now Vagina Yogurt. What’ll They Think of Next?

cecilia westbrookRemember the psycho snack mom who came unglued and started screaming about about vagina pride when her kid’s second grade teacher refused to serve the anatomically-correct vagina cookies she baked? If she wasn’t wackadoodle enough for you, please meet Cecilia Westbrook. And her vagina yogurt.

Yes. I said vagina yogurt. 

Ms. Westbrook is a self-described feminist (of course) and psychology graduate student whose research interests include the interaction of emotion and cognition in the development of mood (that would be mood not food) disorders. Apparently she got the idea to make vagina yogurt last August when she and a college friend were sitting around “riffing on vagina puns” (TRANSLATION: speaking amusingly about their vaginas) because duh… that’s what FEMINISTS do.

Real Men Do Romance

If the following post seems familiar, it’s because I began publishing it for Valentine’s Day in 2013. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Dear Christian and Jared,

Today is Valentine’s Day so it seems a good day to remind you there’s something to be said for good, old-fashioned, romantic rituals. Even though you probably think Valentine’s Day is mostly a money gauging Hallmark-led conspiracy, rest assured girls still like it. And by the way, did you know Valentine’s Day was first linked to romantic love in the mid-14th century before Hallmark even existed? It was a time when courtly love flourished and a gentleman was expected to be noble and chivalrous in expressing his love and admiration for a lady. Sadly, good, old-fashioned romance has fallen out of style these days.

Check Out the Want Ads

Once upon a time, a long time ago newspapers were made of thin, low-cost, non-archival paper called newsprint and they were divided into sections. One section, the Classifieds (also known as the want ads because you could find anything you wanted there) contained short advertisements, classified (hence the name) by categories.

Want to find something you lost? Check out the want ads. Want to find a job, a roommate or a place to live? Check out the want ads. What to find the man of your dreams or a puppy? Check out the want ads.

Food Fight

Whatever happened to the good old days when throwing food in school was predicated by somebody shouting FOOD FIGHT to the dismay of harried hairnet-clad cafeteria ladies?

Sadly those days are gone and apparently so are the days when you could bank on school principals having more than two brain cells to rub together.

Nowadays food fight means something entirely different. At least it does for students at W.F. Burns Middle School in Chambers County, Alabama anyway. Teachers there are stockpiling arsenals of canned food because… ARMED SCHOOL INTRUDERS, y’all… and everyone knows middle-schoolers with cans of food vs. bad guys with guns makes for a fair fight.

The Lesser of Two Evils

Watch this video. It depicts a bunch of George Washington University students signing a petition advocating the deportation of American citizens in exchange for illegal, undocumented aliens. I’m not kidding. Many of these students appear to fancy themselves as informed and intelligent and they actually think this is a good idea. Scary.

In case you forgot, President Obama extended deportation protection to nearly five million illegal immigrants when he executed a sweeping executive order on November 20 of last year. It might surprise you to learn I actually support a protocol that allows for employed,  law abiding (except, of course, for that ongoing violation of our immigration laws) illegal immigrants, currently residing in the U.S., to remain in this country and eventually attain citizenship. However, I don’t support deporting American citizens to make room for them. BECAUSE I AM NOT AN IDIOT.

What Christmas is All About

Christmas is NOT just another ordinary day.

Luke 2: 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them and they were so afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
