'Freedom' Just Another Word For '8-Year Boondoggle' [Names]

God, this decade? It sucked. Wes Anderson stopped making good movies, the Vikings lost Mike Tomlin and hired Brad Childress, and this complete asshole named George Bush was our president. For like eight years! Ugh! This dickbag, Bush, didn't even win the election, but we were all so bored and drunk in 2000 that we just let him be President, anyway, and then, next thing you know, it's 9/11, just like that. It was shortly after 9/11 that all these perfectly nice and acceptable words suddenly became terrible. Like "freedom." Now, that word is like nails on chalkboard. Ugh. People who still think "The Freedom Tower" is a good name for the new WTC building? GROW UP. After the last eight years that really sounds like a bunch of 7th-graders came up with it. "The America is Awesome Tower." "The Let's Roll Building." "Megatron's Bitchin' Castle." So, "freedom." It is a thing we like, sure, but that Bush ass

Feel Free To Hire Hookers Off Craigslist Again [Law And Order]

Law-abiding citizens, tremble in fear: the NYPD is no longer secretly patrolling the hooker ads on Craigslist. Are we safe without undercover cops trying to lure horny men into motel rooms and arrest them? And furthermore, why is this important news just now coming out 18 months after the NYPD allegedly stopped setting up stings on Craigslist hookers and johns? Whoa, so many questions! You're quite interested in Craigslist hooker information, wow! It's simple really: ABC newsman George Weber got murdered by a 16-year-old he found on Craigslist , which, by the ironclad rules of Media Scandal Follow-Up Stories, means that it's time to delve into the seedy world of online prostitution, and what it means for YOU . And whattayaknow, it's safe to go finding hookers on Craigslist again: The Vice Squad Craigslist program was shut down about 18 months ago, sources told The Post. But NYPD spokesman Paul Browne insisted it happened as long as three years ago because a ne

Plush baby blanket

This soft microfiber baby blanket is from The Modern Baby Co. , and I love that the fabric isn't covered in cartoon characters. This is one of many baby blankets that I'm sure to collect in the weeks leading up to the birth. That's one thing I learned the first time, you can never have enough blankets or towels or burping cloths nearby during those early weeks because of all the exploding poop and rancid, regurgitated milk. I know, you didn't need to read that this morning, but WELCOME TO PARENTHOOD. by dooce in Daily Style © Armstrong Media, LLC. All rights reserved. Originally published by Heather B.

Stand off

They both remained frozen in these positions for about ten minutes straight, Coco sort of pretending that she wasn't interested in the bone, Chuck sort of pretending that he didn't notice that she's full of shit. Their lives are so refreshingly simple. by dooce in Daily Chuck © Armstrong Media, LLC. All rights reserved. Originally published by Heather B. Armstrong for as Stand off .

Keeping up with the Jetsons

Yesterday I tried to take it easy after flying into Chicago, so I stayed close to the hotel, grabbed a small dinner by myself at an Irish pub across the street, and then settled in for a night of mind-numbing television. I haven't been to Chicago since 2001, and I know I should be trying to explore the city a bit more, but I can't take the drugs that would give me the energy to do so. I'm thinking that cocaine abuse isn't so much an indication that touring rock and roll stars are depraved human beings and more about how they're just trying to stay awake so they can visit more museums. Before I set off on this first leg of the tour Jon set up Skype on my computer so that we could call each other over video, and last night we used it for the first time: And for 45 minutes all Leta did was make funny faces. At one point I noticed something hanging off the end of her nose, perhaps a crumb from the Kellogg's Corn Pops she'd had for dinner, and after I pointe

Let's All Make Fun of Matt Lauer's Deer-Related Injury [Today In Today]

Today show host Matt Lauer got in a fight with a deer while on his bike last weekend and kinda hurt himself. Now he's back on the show and his colleagues are teasing him mercilessly. Everyone from Brian Williams to the unfrozen caveman Smuckers salesman Willard Scott made jokes about Lauer, who swerved to avoid a deer while pedaling in Long Island and was thrown from his bike, separating his shoulder. So essentially he was playing chicken with a deer and lost. You're right to make fun of him, NBC news staff. Carry on. Thanks video intern Whitney Jefferson for the clip.
