National Pastry Day

Today is National Pastry Day and according to the folks at National Day Calendar (the authoritative source for official holidays commemorating obscure and unusual anniversaries) the best way to celebrate is with your favorite pastry. Since I’m a sucker for holiday traditions, here’s a cream puff on me. Watch.

Sarah Silverman hosts a weekly Hulu show titled, I Love America with Sarah Silverman. During her opening monologue on December 7, she described having an intense visceral reaction to watching an ex-boyfriend raise an American flag in his yard. It happened many years ago, but evidently she’s still thinking about it because she recalled feeling weird, scared and shaken at this seemingly simple act of patriotism. Having no idea why, she called her sister, Susie, who “knows shit” because she is a rabbi in Israel. Rabbi Susie explained, “Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it. Flags. Marching. Blind allegiance. These things tend to ring a bell for us.” read more

Where Are All the Feminists?

In case you missed it, the false prophets of feminism have their panties in a collective wad. Again.

In summary, Jourdan Rodrigue, a reporter for the Charlotte Observer, asked Cam Newton a very specific question about his receiver’s ability to run routes, revealing an arresting knowledge of football. Cam smiled and said it was funny to hear a female talking about routes because, let’s be honest, women generally do not talk with such specificity about football. Yeah. Yeah, I know Rodrigue is a sports journalist and it’s her job, but Cam Newton’s comment, punctuated by a smile, was neither offensive nor sexist and it certainly was not disparaging. Dare I suggest Jourdan Rodrigue, et al. over-reacted? read more

The Mad Pooper

I have a neighbor who lets his dog poop on our front lawn and then strolls off without picking it up as if he has no idea his pooch left a smoldering pile of dung in my flower bed. It annoys me, but it’s nothing compared to the Mad Pooper..

The Mad Pooper is a lady jogger who’s been terrorizing a family in Colorado Springs by pooping on their front lawn. No joke. She jogs by, stops, pulls down her shorts and poops in their yard. The first time it happened, the kids were playing outside. They ran into the house screaming for their mom, “A lady is pooping in our yard!” For the record, I cannot begin to imagine how I would react if my kids ran into the house screaming about a lady pooping in our yard. I’d probably lock the doors and make everybody hide under the furniture to keep them safe from harm’s way, but according to news reports this (super) mom actually confronted the deuce in the act. She ran outside, caught the offender mid-poop with her shorts down around her ankles and shouted something like, “Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids,” to which the Mad Pooper replied, “Yeah. Sorry.” read more

Happy National Make Your Bed Day

Today is September 11 which means, in addition to being the sobering anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, it’s National Make Your Bed Day. Seriously. It’s a thing (I checked) and in case you’re wondering how to celebrate, you can start off by making your bed.

And THAT is why, everyday should be Make Your Bed Day.
