WTG WTF!


Good Cookie PostI’m not opposed to diva behavior when the time is right.
I don’t mind a spontaneous beatdown, well-timed bitchslap or boot heel up the butt.
I believe that, at any given moment, there is someone somewhere who deserves the outright ass-kicking he/she is about to receive.

But an Olympic bronze-medal Taekwondo match isn’t the place.

Unfortunately, Cuban blackbelt Angel Matos doesn’t share my view – or understand the basic tenets of his chosen sport.

Matos was winning the match when he fell after being hit by his opponent, Kazakhstan’s Arman Chilmanov.
Sitting on the mat, awaiting medical attention, Matos was disqualified for taking too much injury time.
Fighters get one minute. His time ran out. End of story.

Only not so much.

Matos got pissed, questioned the call, didn’t like the answer, pushed a judge, then pushed and gave a roundhouse head kick to referee Chakir Chelbat of Sweden.
Ever the gentleman, Matos then spat on the floor and was escorted out.

“This is a strong violation of the spirit of taekwondo and the Olympic Games. The sanctions are the following and are effective immediately: Lifetime ban of the coach and athlete in all championships sanctioned by the (World Taekwondo Federation) and at the same time, all records of this athlete at the Beijing Games will immediately be erased,” said the announcer, reading a WTF release.

It wasn’t just the right decision/punishment. It was the only decision/punishment truly appropriate for such a blatant violation of the core teachings of the sport, which has only been an Olympic medal category since 2000.

I don’t know the ethos of swimming and I can’t school you on the philosophy on shotputting, but I can tell you – as a student of Taekwondo – that Courtesy (Ye Ui), Integrity (Yom Chi) and Self Control (Guk Gi) are three of the most important tenets of the sport.

Pitch a hissy fit at your Green Belt forms evaluation.
Display your inner diva during Red Belt board breaking.
But once you earn your Black Belt you better live it – and that means controlling your kicks and  your tricks.

Matos didn’t.
The lifetime ban is more than appropriate. The federation can’t strip him of his belt class, but I think he did a find job of de-classing himself as it is.

Way to go, WTF.

Lone Star Hate


What is it about Texas that turns high school cheerleaders and their mothers 20 shades of batshit crazy?

Back in the ’90s we had “Pom Pom Mom” Wanda Holloway who hired hit man to murder her 13 year-old daughter’s cheer rival.
Bitch put a contract out on an eighth grader!!!
In case you didn’t know, that’s what crazy looks like.  –>

Last year we were treated to a bunch of dive-roll divas dubbed the ‘Fab Five’ who terrorized folks at a school near Dallas with their ‘chocolate tampons’, peeny-pics and tawdry texts.

And now we have the lovely ladies of the Morton Ranch High School varsity squad who apparently got a little frisky, mixed a whole bunch of überbitch with absolutely no common sense and turned a recent JV-to-V induction breakfast into a possible criminal incident.
::: CLASSY!! :::

Allegations surfaced this week that the school’s varsity squad “kidnapped” junior varsity members … blindfolded them, bound their hands and mouths with duct tape and tossed them into a swimming pool.”
::: NOT nice, Buffy!! :::

And “when a girl (BEEP) in her pants and puts her pants on another girl’s head, that’s just disgusting,” the sister of one of the JV casualties cheerleaders told the local ABC station.

You know, I’d flat out cut a bitch for BEEPing on me!
::: They troped their own copy! WTF?!? :::

But the most precious part of this whole retarded mess isn’t the BEEPing or the binding — it’s some hagbag called CHEERMOM001 on the local station’s message boards. She ranted, raved and refreshed that browser for 15 fun-filled hours … and counting!
::: can you say obsessive-compulsive, control-freak, probably guilty-by-association stay-at-home stage-mom? I can! … It hurts, but I can say it. :::

I particularly like the way she came back from her ‘break’ at 1:18 this morning to find that someone (tee hee) had sneakily engaged her keyboard’s capslock.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW, BITCHES!?!

She brought the crazy into the wee hours of the morning – then *poof* – just like her daughter’s alibi – CHEERMOM001 was gone!
Some lunacy with your lunch?

BTY…… Please JV PARENTS get off your POWER TRIP AND THE ONES THAT GO TO CHURCH BLESS YOU
::: BT-WHAT!? :::

7/30/08 2:49 PM EDT
I AM BLESSED AND HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED DAY , FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT BLESSED GOD BLESS YOU, AND TRULY THERE IS ALOT TO THIS STORY AND I HOPE ITS ALL CLEARED UP FAST . PRAY FOR ALL INVOLVED AND THE PARENTS WHO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS 
::: she meant touched … not blessed. But I would pray if I were anywhere near Katy, Texas – Mamma was probably loadin’ buckshot between sentences. :::    

 

WOW IVE BEEN CLONE ? NO WE JUST KNOW THE TRUTH …….. 
::: Ruh roh — too much sniffy-sniff makes mommy a bad typist … umm, and paranoid!  :::

Oh but it’s just that kind of special when people get all liquored worked up, fire up the Dell and congregate in an atmosphere of mutual hatred on a barely-moderated message board!

Virtual finger-pointing! Legal threats!! Written threats!!!
Better than the last Grisham novel!

Oh crazy Texans – you do make us laugh (and laugh and laaauuuugh …)

Elitist pol lambastes elitist mag’s lampoon


Ruh roh … we’ve barely finished our first cup of coffee and already we have controversy!

Seems some folks who shall remain nameless but whose initials are Everyone Running for President of the United States of America feels The New Yorker magazine went a wee bit too far with the Obama cover art for their new issue.

The illustration is called ‘The Politics of Fear’ and shows a gun totin’ Michelle and Muslim-garbed Barry doin’ the old FOX News terrorist fist jab in the Oval Office while Old Glory burns in the fireplace under a portrait of Osama bin Laden.

What?
Too much?

Seems both The People’s Prince and Big Mac thought so.
O’Baby called the artwork tasteless and offensive and Mav said – ‘uhh, yeah, what he said.’
::: HARSH! :::
No word on what Ron Paul or Cynthia McKinney thought about it, but never fear – I’m sure the ink is drying on those rubber-stamp statements as I type.

No strangers to controversy themselves, the staff at The New Yorker defended the illustration, saying it was meant to mock right-wing depictions of O’Beautiful and his bride (and anyone who didn’t get the hee hee is just a big ol’ stupid, crybaby, poo poo head who should just shut UP already … uhh, or something like that).

“I think the idea that the Obamas are branded as unpatriotic [let alone as terrorists] in certain sectors is preposterous,” artist Barry Blitt wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. “It seemed to me that depicting the concept would show it as the fear-mongering ridiculousness that it is.”

‘Cept Blitt forgot two very important things:

1. His special brand of highbrow toon-time isn’t exactly appreciated by the masses, and by ‘the masses’ I mean folks like those West Virginia asshats who already think my boyfriend is a terrorist and seeing him jokingly portrayed as one in a cartoon is just the kind of rock-solid, irrefutable proof they’re looking for.

2. Obamamania is hopifying the entire world – and you media types are welcome to join the party and bask in the glow of Barry’s audaciousness … as long as your questions aren’t, well, too probing and you stay away from pesky topics like:
religion
(unless he brings it up)
or race
(unless he brings it up, confirms the acceptance of bringing it up or is responding out of sheer necessity to the fact that some other entity did, in fact, bring it up)
or patriotism
(unless he mentions, visits a base somewhere or does a photo-op with a headbandaged soldier on crutches) 
or the fam
(unless he arranges for an Acccess Hollywood interview with Maria Menunos to show that down-home-y side we never get to see)
or … well, just start keeping a list, guys. It’ll be easier that way.

How will Bush ‘celebrate’ Memorial Day?


Iraq Military Casualties of War - the children

As Americans get ready for their much-anticipated three-day weekend Monday’s observance of the Memorial Day holiday, one naturally wonders … ‘How does our President plan to honor the fallen for whom he is directly responsible?’

Iraq Military Casualties of War

Whatever contrived public display of insincere emotion he is scripted feels compelled to show, we hope he is haunted by the fact that — as of Thursday, May 22, 2008 — at least 4080 members of the U.S. military have died in the Iraq war since it began in March 2003. Shall we talk about the others?

Fallen US Soldiers

Yeah, those are oursMission Accomplished, indeed.

PEACE, fucker!

Mmmmmmarc Jacobs


After reading the GQ article about designer Marc Jacobs, I am now more in love with him than ever!
I am NOT what one would label a fashionista but this guy is the bombinatrix. Period.
Jason Preston is a lucky bitch …
