Oink.

There once was a woman, a midget
Who asked how fat would a pig get
If it dined on caviar
Smoked Havana cigars
And racked restaurant bills in six digits?

Dirty, rotten...

So what are we sposed to do now
With this little lady from Lubao?
Her power is such
That no one can touch
Her riches, her power, and rule now

Ngorkzz.

There once was a girl from Pampanga
Who, while others wallowed in hunger
Ate Le Cirque's whole menu
With her entire retinue
Of lackeys, a brood of hogmongers

(With a tip of the helmet to Marocharim and Sparks.)

It's all a friggin sham

Bono's environment-love ek, that is.
Put another way, U2's CO2 emissions are reportedly the equivalent to the average annual waste produced by 6,500 British people, or the same as leaving a lightbulb running for 159,000 years.
Damn these celebrities and their hypocrisy. It's all your fault, Gore.
And look at how one fan justifies all this:
"The carbon footprint of this might be quite large, but the spiritual rewards to the audience of this are those that enhance a life," Mark Reed wrote in a review for the Final Word website. "If all life were bread and water, then there would be nothing to lift mankind above the amoeba."
Spiritual rewards? It's a friggin rock concert! It's where thousands of people go to listen to rock songs performed live, then go home and do whatever it is theyve been doing. You'd think Bono was some kind of Jesus or something. Spiritual rewards. Pfsh!

But wait! Maybe it's okay because Bono will pay money to offset the carbon emissions:
Though U2 may yet announce that they are paying to carbon offset their world tour – they would need to plant 20,118 trees a year...
Awwwww, that's nice. 20,118 trees should cover it and assuage Bono's guilt, right? Wrong.
Obama gets a pass. no, really.

I have often walked down this street before

But the pavement always
Stayed beneath my feet before.

Knowing Im on the street where you live.

How could they slap?

Is it still chivalry when someone attacks you and then you refuse to strike back because of their gender? Or is it sexism. Because if it were a male, we sure as heck would open a can of whoop-ass on the muth'r.
There has been a startling increase in the number of women who are the perpetrators of domestic violence.
The reason probably is jail and social stigma.
"I've had SAS soldiers in tears because the wife is a black belt karate expert and yet they know that if they even try to restrain her he might be charged with assault and domestic violence," she said.
In this age of gender equality, you do have the right to defend yourself against an attack no matter the gender. But youll probably end up in jail or stigmatized as a woman beater, even if she attacked you first.

Your tax dollars at work

Keep your blood pressure medication close by, grif.
Staff at Goldman Sachs staff [sic] can look forward to the biggest bonus payouts in the firm's 140-year history after a spectacular first half of the year, sparking concern that the big investment banks which survived the credit crunch will derail financial regulation reforms.

Let me get this straight. You bail them out, then they get the bonuses? Where's your bonus, taxpaying schmoe? "Spectacular first half of the year," it said. Sure, that's because the taxpayers bailed you out and not your competition.

Stalin hates emo

So what say you, Chairman Mao? I saw a lot of emo Chinese kids in Nanjing. To be fair, theyre not Goth. Theyre a distinctly Asian emo, a cross between A Flock of Seagulls and Korean telenovelas.
Legislation is currenting being formulated in Russia to heavily regulate emo websites and ban emo and goth dress style in schools and government buildings.

The new laws are apparently being driven by fears that these "dangerous teen trends" encourage depression and suicide.

I feel my personality changing already

You thought you knew your astrological sign, eh? Guess again. 
You will most likely find that once precession is taken into account, your zodiac sign is different. And if you were born between November 29 and December 17, your sign is actually one you never saw in the newspaper: you are an Ophiuchus! The eliptic passes through the constellation of Ophiuchus after Scorpius.
So youre not a Taurus, nor a Libra, nor a Virgo. Youre an Idiot. For believing this crap.

My baby returns

In 2001 or 2002, I forget when, in the Tsinoy.com forum, a thread on the silly place names acronyms was started -- ITALY, I trust and love you, JAPAN, Just always pray at night etc.. Eventually we ran out of the existing ones and started making acronyms up for place names that didnt have any, and I took on the task of coming up with one for the motherland, and wrote this
PHILIPPINES: Pumping hot, I love it. Please, please, I need erotic stimulation.
as my contribution. And thus I set this rather silly acronym free in cyberspace for everyone's edification. Imagine my joy when just last night, in a plurk by Marocharim, he posted for all and sundry the same acronym. It has come back to me, it's father, after all these years.
(No I have no documented proof that I am the acronym's dad. I went by the handle OrangeEgg at the time. I tried looking for it in the Tsinoy.com archives but I dont think they archive posts that old. You have to take it on faith since we're pals and all.)

thanks to TinTin for the tip

Gasper, the Friendly Ghost.

Ive got some good news and some bad news

First the good news. To Grif and I at least.
But Darwin showed that hairlessness was proof of a different type of evolution, not by natural selection but by sexual selection. Under natural selection, individuals survive if they are adapted to their environments: a brown bear, being conspicuous, would not last long in the Arctic, so it evolves into a polar bear. Sexual selection is not concerned with the environment but with sex: individuals breed only if they find a mate, so animals have to attract one. Consider the peacock.
It seems that some -- not all -- women are attracted to thinning hairlines. In other words, bald is teh sex-ay.
Hair plays a social signalling role in many older mammals. It goes grey - which can be a good thing. It is only the silverback gorilla(so-called named for obvious reasons) who can corral a harem of females, in part because gorillas of both sexes revere older males. We have retained our head hair so enabling that social signalling: grey hair on men can reinforce an alpha message of chiefdom. As can baldness. (Typos in the original.)
And the bad news? It's BULLSHIT!! You'd have to read the article to fully appreciate the heights and depths of bullshitery displayed here.

the Pride of Rome: the Italian Stallion!

Limericks about nothing

There once was a man from Jakarta
Who claims he can make his dick harder
Than a diamond drill
Tis a singular skill
Wild horses could not tame his ardor

There once was a man, a New Yorker
Who likes doing things with his corker
He'd go out with a ho
Order french fries to go
And eats off her back as he porks her

There once was a blogger from Jersey
Whose exploits with birds are quite rare, see
But it's during those nights
Of pure sensual delights
That he shags them til they beg for mercy

Austin's pretty good to our homeboy
For not once was he home alone, boy
Every night on the town
Is a Texas hoedown
Some chick be polishing his chrome, boy

More scientific bullshitery

Really, scientists? You dont see the utter absurdity of this?
Free will, or at least the place where we decide to act, is sited in a part of the brain called the parietal cortex, new research suggests.

When a neurosurgeon electrically jolted this region in patients undergoing surgery, they felt a desire to, say, wiggle their finger, roll their tongue or move a limb. Stronger electrical pulses convinced patients they had actually performed these movements, although their bodies remained motionless.

Let me get this straight. You jolt a part of the brain and they feel a desire to move something. How is that free will?
"What it tells us is there are specific brain regions that are involved in the consciousness of your movement," says Angela Sirigu, a neuroscientist at the CNRS Cognitive Neuroscience Centre in Bron, France, who led the study.

Right. And duh. There are specific regions in the brain that are involved in consciousness of movement. Explain again what this has to do with free will, please. Right now I am conscious of typing words for this post. It still doesnt answer the question of whether or not Im doing this freely or an unbroken chain of cause-and-effect events dating back to the big bang has rendered my typing these words inevitable. Your little experiment with electrecuting my brain has nothing to say about which option is true. In other words, this is bullshit.

Just to put things in their proper perspective

This 'swine flu' scam is still making the rounds, especially here in the motherland's sensationalist media, which just goes to show we'll believe any bullshit. In the meantime, deadlier killers mostly escape media's attention.
Since January, more than 13,000 people have died of complications from [regular] seasonal flu, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's weekly report on the causes of death in the nation.


And here is a list of killers that never make it to the evening news.

Are you farkin' kidding me??

The Nobel prize? G-o-o-oooooore!
During the past few years I recruited a team of more than 650 volunteers to visually inspect and photographically document more than 860 of these temperature stations. We were shocked by what we found.

We found stations located next to the exhaust fans of air conditioning units, surrounded by asphalt parking lots and roads, on blistering-hot rooftops, and near sidewalks and buildings that absorb and radiate heat. We found 68 stations located at wastewater treatment plants, where the process of waste digestion causes temperatures to be higher than in surrounding areas.

In fact, we found that 89 percent of the stations – nearly 9 of every 10 – fail to meet the National Weather Service’s own siting requirements that stations must be 30 meters (about 100 feet) or more away from an artificial heating or radiating/reflecting heat source.

In other words, 9 of every 10 stations are likely reporting higher or rising temperatures because they are badly sited.

It gets worse.

The latest in scientific bullshitery

It seems fat makes you remember stuff. Scientists are trying to develop a pill that would make memory 'stick'.
Researchers, looking into obesity, discovered that fatty foods not only send feelings of fullness to the brain but they also trigger a process that consolidates long term memories.

It believed that this is an evolutionary tool that enabled our distant ancestors to remember where rich sources of food were located.
Let me get this straight. Our ancestors ate fatty food and it triggered something in the chemicals in their brains so they would remember where the food was? Seriously? Look, if I ate rotten food at McJoe's bar and grill, wouldnt I remember that as well? Does that mean rotten food also makes my memories stick in my brain?
"Remembering the location and context of a fatty meal was probably an important survival mechanism for early humans," he said. "It makes sense that mammals have this capability."

Gee, you think? Did it take millions of dollars in research money to tell you that? And your contention is that the fat did made them remember? Something like, say, watermelons won't work?

The all-girl band

This relates to a post the Grif put up in his other blog when he mentioned that women's proclivities prevent an all-female band from lasting beyond a decade. (No link to the post unless the Grif puts it up himself.)

The title says it all: Catfights over handbags and tears in the toilets. When this producer launched a women-only TV company she thought she'd kissed goodbye to conflict...

And the woman exec is forced into this conclusion:
And while I stand by my initial reason for excluding male employees - because they have an easy ride in TV - if I were to do it again, I'd definitely employ men. In fact, I'd probably employ only men.

Methinks the people who have time to browse the internet at work are already more productive, that is, they finish their tasks quicker, hence they have time to twitter or plurk. But Im all fall for internet breaks at work, dont get me wrong. Tedium is the workers' worst enemy.

Speaking of tedium...
