The Unqualified

by on Nov.18, 2017, under Snark, Society

It’s become glaringly obvious that the grossly unqualified are invading politics and government. Take this cretin, for example: Trump’s pick for the USA’s environmental advosor.

Oh, Straight People.

Because Ellen is just hilarious AF, and sometimes we do need to subvert social norms and throw it back at them.

Also: wedding ceremony and reception at CostCo? Oh, straight people, indeed.

You must be the fun, straight couple!

Here’s a little humorous – yet very on-point – lesson on homophobia, whether outright bigotry or else subtle microaggressions.

Shape of Thrones

by on Sep.19, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky, Music & Theater, Snark

Because, like the creators of this Star Wars gem, some people really just have a whoe lot of free time on their hands.

And thank goodness for that, or else we wouldn’t have this other gem.

Keeping Up With The Vacuous

by on Sep.14, 2017, under Film & TV, Snark

Recently, I got stuck at home and was unable to go to work due to heavy rains. I was quietly having lunch while the two household helpers watched some reruns of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on TV. Our household help, ladies and gentlemen.

I had never watched the Kardashian show in full, but finally hearing it play in the background while I ate lunch made me wonder yet again: WTF is wrong with the public for having kept this show alive for a decade?

Not only are they not really attractive underneath all the make-up, just average at best, but I have never seen a more vacuous, self-absorbed group of “reality stars” who were (and still are) so tone deaf and out of touch with, well, reality.

Institutionalized Extortion

by on Aug.28, 2017, under My Life, Snark, Society

The consumer in me will be happy if Uber goes back online this coming week given that the insidious LTFRB has already given the recommended fine for lifting the one-month suspension.

You know, just a mere and very sane 190 Million Fucking Pesos.

But the responsible citizen in me thinks they should give Shriveled Man and his sidekick Nostril Girl the middle finger and just serve the remainder of the suspension period. There’s only about two weeks left anyway, and if that’s what it costs to defy institutionalized extortion, I can – as a consumer – live with it.
