!! OMG, If You See Something Say Something: Suspicious toy horse causes commotion in Orlando !!


If there’s one thing that says I AM A WEAPON OF DESTRUCTION, it’s a stuffed plushie horse sitting on the playground of an elementary school in terrorist hot spot. And what do you do when you have a potential bomb on your hands? BLOW IT UP OBVIOUSLY.
(No but seriously can someone explain why the response to a potential doll-bomb is to explode it? What if it really was a bomb? How would that solve anything? Sorry to be so dense here!)

!! OMG, She’s Mad: Shirley Phelps-Roper pouts about publicity woes !!

roper.jpg
Poor Shirley Phelps-Roper! The Liza Minelli of homophobes is mad that her own God Hates Fags Baptist Church’s endless and shameless string of publicity grabs isn’t getting, well, the publicity it used to. In fact, you may have read lately about the Florida preacher who wants to burn a bunch of Korans at Ground Zero? Well that has absolutely nothing to do with Miss Shirley. But she would like you to know that her church has been burning Korans for years. And no one cared at all!

Her irritation Wednesday was not that the Rev. Terry Jones and his Dove World Outreach Center’s planned bonfire would offend Muslims worldwide and probably increase the danger to American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.
It’s that in 2008 she and her father’s Topeka flock set fire to a Quran in plain view on a Washington, D.C., street and nobody seemed to care.
“We did it a long time before this guy,” Phelps-Roper said by telephone from a street corner in downtown Chicago, scene of the latest Westboro picket — against Jews this time, not gays.
The difference could be that in 2008 many news media outlets had decided to ignore the group’s routine of spewing hatred at funerals of fallen American soldiers.
So when Fred Phelps, calling Muhammad a “pedophilic gigolo,” went online and invited people to attend the burning, most stayed away.

You kind of have to take pity on Shirley. Without her clever signs and her famous church, she’s just another crazy old lady with a really long braid.

!! OMG Editorial: No More Betty White !!


ENOUGH! Dear Betty White, I’m sure you’re a nice lady and pretty amusing too, but I never want to see your face on my teevee again. We get it, we get it, you’re old, you show up and say something halfway unexpected coming from an old lady, and dullards everywhere laugh as if it’s a new joke even though you’ve basically been doing it since 1972.
I know it’s not your fault that this perennial and hacky gag has somehow become a mini-industry all of its own in the last year. If I were you I’d be taking advantage, too. But it’s time to hobble off to retirement.

!! OMG, She Serves it Straight Up: Paula Abdul takes YouTube by storm !!


International treasure Paula Abdul may have been fired from her gig on American Idol, but now that she has her own YouTube channel, we can finally start treating her like the gift that she is.
It will come as no surprise to anyone who watched her classic reality show Hey Paula that DJ Skat Kat’s girlfriend is completely nuts and potentially drug-addled, rambling semi-intelligibly (and often in the middle of the night) on such topics as Does Paula Ever Need to Get Away, Weird Smells, Thank You For Paula Abdul Week, and, of course, My Favorite Dishes, I Love to Cook!
(Yes, there is apparently such a thing as Paula Abdul week?!)
