Tuesday swag

9 Feb

{+} Cracked has a nice rundown of the “6 most statistically full of shit professions.” The list contains all the usual suspects — stock market experts, wine tasters, weather forecasters — and backs them all up with some ol’-fashioned facts. Good to know.


{+} This Chicago politician was all, “you guys thought Palin’s resignation was strange, huh? Check this shit out.” The money excerpt:

Cohen, who departed the race after it became public that he had once held a knife to a prostitute ex-girlfriend’s throat and had a history of using steroids, held a press conference. During Super Bowl halftime. In a bar. At a table. With his emotional son crying into his father’s chest.

He may be light on class and integrity, but the guy’s got a little-known quality called I-don’t-give-a-shit-about-anything-whatsoever in spades. It’s a great trade-off, providing you don’t know or care about him.


{+} Wisconsin is such a hotbed of insane news that I should probably start a running feature of my favorite story from our dairy-loving state to the east. Consider this doozy the inaugural champ:

A 21-year-old Wisconsin man apparently approached his mother behind their house Thursday night sporting a ski mask and trying to rob the 37-year-old woman… As a joke. Bad idea. Mom knows how to defend herself and shot her son in the crotch.
This was the result I was hoping to see in the Tebow family Super Bowl commercial, but no such luck.

    It was not possible to be offended by the Tebow add…come on.

    Offended? Not offended in the least.

    Tebow annoys the shit out of me, so much so that I am publicly wishing he gets shot by his own mother. Pretty standard reaction, I’d say.
