Headlines that need to be rephrased

MTV's Electric Barbarellas show still on track

Having just seen the Barbs on last night's Craig Ferguson show, it's quite clear that what they mean about this “reality” series girl-group is "Electric Barbarellas still all racks."

(To be scrupulously fair, based on the Late Late Show performance, "Missy"--she's the redhead in my favorite color at the far left, above) at least can sing. The rest of ‘em...

...well girls, it’s never too early to decide what your boundaries are about doing porn…)

For fucks sake.

They make Rebecca Black look like Kelly Clarkson.

They make Britney Spears look like Don Henley.

They'd make a dildo look like Natalie Merchant...

Here now, a word from our (non) sponsor

My pal Corey Klemow is featured in this commercial. It was made for a contest that Chevy had, and took fifth place! Right now it's just on YouTube, but if it gets enough views, who knows where it could end up?

Oh, and Corey's the guy who answers the door.

On behalf of Jane Wiedlin*, I resent that


Sarah Palin gets to tell her side of things in an [self-produced] "epic," two-hour-long, $1 million movie that portrays her as a "Joan of Arc-like figure"

Joan of Arc? So they're saying she's a cross-dressing witch that hears voices in her head and believes she has a divine mission?

...yeah, I could see that.

BTW, the movies title is...The Undefeated.

The Undefeated?

Sarah Palin lost the election to be the vice-president. That was a defeat. Shouldn't it be...The Loser?

She also famously quit in the middle of her term as Alaska Governor. The Quitter?

The film argues that Palin took on powerful interests and won major accomplishments quickly,

Name three.

*To say nothing of Orchestral Maneuvers in The Dark.

Haven't done one of these for a while...

I'd like to recommend this NPR interview with Gretchen Morgenson, co-author of a new book upon the the financial crisis.
