And the Wholly Hypocritical Award goes to …

This morning, an eco-conscious acquaintance was bemoaning the fate of the planet in face of the conspicuous consumerism that naturally takes place this time of year and blah blahing on and on about:
— the excessive amounts of garbage generated from piles and piles of discarded product packaging …
— the overuse of electricity from people adorning their abodes with every available form of twinkly holiday ornamentation …
— the gargantuan supply of gasoline wasted by people schlepping from store to store in search of the perfect gift a last-minute stocking stuffer …

I tried to interject on mankind’s behalf ¬†but she cut me off saying she just remembered she had to run to Target to pick up more wrapping paper …

North Korea test launching five short-range missiles? Big whoop.
Swine *cough* flu *wheeze* vaccine shortages? So *sniff* what.
Bleak economic and jobs outlook for 2010? Who cares.


Because Mother Nature is fucking with the fall holidays, y’all!

The unusually wet wet weather that bitch has been bringing is wreaking all-out HAVOC on Halloween and thinning out the offerings on your Thanksgiving table by leaving a paucity of pumpkins in her wake!

“It has been a weird weather situation,” said Bob Richard of Cox Farms of Virginia. “Usually we have no trouble at all getting brokers to bring us pumpkins. But Pennsylvania farmers are seeing yields down 50 to 70 percent.”

OH NO!!! 50 TO 70 PERCENT!!!!!
This is nothing short of pumpkin PANDEMONIUM!

I don’t think there are enough EXCLAMATION POINTS in the world to illustrate the sheer severity of the situation!!!!!


(OK … maybe there are …)

“We have as many as we need to get through Columbus Day weekend, our busiest time, but we are concerned about what will happen next week.”
Umm, he means this week then, right?


And it’s not just the Cox in Virginia that’s suckin’ it.
Pumpkin patchers in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New England and, well, EVERYWHEREUSA are suffering.


“If you saw our field, you’d say it looks beautiful,” pumpkin producer Edward LeBlanc said. “You would say, ‘Wow, look at all the pumpkins.’ But we’d be saying, ‘Wow, look at all the pumpkins that aren’t going to quite make it,’ or ‘Look at all the pumpkins that aren’t going to be large enough size to sell.’

And isn’t THAT just a roundaboutcircuitiousway of saying SHORTAGE!!!!


What’s to become of our pumpkin-based holidays???

libbys-canned-pumpkin-de-1No more creepy carvings?
::: Damn, and it’s always so much fun watching little Timmy fumble around with daddy’s knife :::
Will Ned not get seconds of granny’s Punkin’ Pie?
::: Ehh, that one’s not so terrible … her tart will go on … :::
And just WHAT – pray tell – is to become of South Carolina’s Pumpkin Princess Pageant?
::: Stagemom meltdown in 3 … 2 … :::

This is terrible!

May the gourd have mercy on our souls!

Happy Fourth, Bitches!

Yeah, it’s a day [and a half, give or take] early but this ho’s gotta get her happr4thbitcheslong-weekend bender a’brewin’ so I do not have time to dwell on the demise of Jeff Goldblum as reported by Jeff Goldblum or any of the other not-dead celebs not out there being dead or dying and stuff.

No time for that shit, ‘kay?

I gotsta get my drink on – and¬†you do,¬†too – it’s, like, the law!

So crack it, pour it, mix it and raise it high for a Happy Adoption of the Declaration of Independence Day!

Let’s party like it’s 1776 …

I just don’t get it

Would you stand online at 4 a.m. for with hundreds of tired, cranky, jacked-up-on-too-much-caffeine freaky folks to get this stupid thing?¬†–>

I wouldn’t, but according to the local rag, two breeders with seven dwarfs kids between them did just that.

These two bitches rolled up at 3 in the A and M, and were queued up with the other losers waiting to snag a bunch of Polly Pocket crap and Littlest Pet Shop shit their spawn will break and lose before Easter.

If, as the saying goes, time actually is money, then I fail to find the bargain here.

Surely there’s a better way to have a merry merry than to¬†pull third-shift hours in pursuit of some silly plaything that’s soon to be pass√©.
