HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! I hope you all have some nice plans with your mom this weekend, or if not, I hope you at LEAST sent her some sort of bath salts, or if not, I hope you at LEAST are going to remember to call her and email her a funny animal video. Don’t screw it up, guys. Mother’s day! It comes once a year!

Oh Rihanna… you sure know how to prank. Remember that time that Chris Brown pranked you and then left you on the side of the road… oh wait….
Posted in: Rihanna Is Officially An Actress On Set Prankstress

[Assoc. Ed. Note: Wow, what a shitty thing to write! I can't believe that thought went through your head and then you typed it in and then you hit send. I mean, I can ALMOST tell that you were trying to construct a joke...like, at the expense of Rihanna? About the time she was abused? Because you were trying to show her who's boss 'cause she told a lame story about an on-set prank? You really got her, dude. She'll know never to tell a lame story to the press now, or else she's gonna get called out for that time she was beat the fuck up by Chris Brown. L.O.L. Got her!]

I don’t know. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt. If there’s anything today has taught us, it’s that there are a LOT of people whose ideas about homosexuality need a LOT of evolution. Maybe half the country, if the studies are correct. Most of us know or are related to people for whom the legalization of gay marriage is not self-evident at all. Hell, most of us were probably raised in that sort of environment. I certainly was.

Regardless of how politically expedient this decision might have been, I think the President is (intentionally or otherwise) displaying what most of us wish this country would undergo: a period of reflection about long held beliefs and the conclusion that those beliefs were wrong. It’s not ideal, but the alternative is waiting for everyone who currently believes gay marriage to be a sin in the eyes of God to just die off.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: This was a very good point. Although I do think it is fair to hold Obama to a higher standard, and to expect him not to pussyfoot around what he actually believes, it is certainly helpful to have a president giving a thoughtful explanation of the transition so many Americans still need to make. Serving as an example in that way. Which is what your point was. So. Great point. A+.]

  1. Hey (AYO) guys, I’m just going to throw out that I’m flying to Paris (the french one) next week, (han) solo-style, and if there just so happen to be any Monsters out there, I am so totally looking for people to buy scotches for in exchange for laughter and hijinx. There for a week from the 16th to the 26th – if so, either comment here or drop me a line at FCF@finecanadianforces.ca.

  2. Happy Mother’s Day! Remember to wear matching outfits!

  3. Wow! I don’t know how I missed Steve’s Mad Men comment until just now. That was a really good comment. So good pie.gif with some Cool Whip on top.

  4. I hope my Mom likes this song I bought for her:

  5. See you guys at the big dance.

  6. so. what’s everybody doing this weekend?

    • Well, dinner/drinks with friends tonight, helping a friend move tomorrow, I’ve gotta clean upstairs and reformat… do research for… who am I kidding? The only reason I’m replying to your post is to post this:

      Segues can be hard.

    • I’m knitting a sweater for a tree.

    • I’m going to see Archers of Loaf tonight! And I will be dancing like Chang, even though it won’t be situationally appropriate.

      • Holy poop, I totally forgot they reunited! That should be a lot of fun. So, have that. Fun, I mean.

        Also, halfway through that comment I checked the tour schedule (because the internet has destroyed me and I used to love AoL) and it appears that you’re in North Carolina. Sorry for all the crappy people in your state. We know you’re not all crappy :) Keep up hope!

        • Thanks, That One! Thankfully, in my county 79% of people voted against the amendment. A lot of good people worked very hard, if unsuccessfully, to defeat it. We haven’t given up yet! First step, defeat the amendment in court, second step – freedom for all!

    • I’m going to get a haircut today and then see a movie! I think it’s called the Avengers? You probably haven’t heard of it, it hasn’t gotten much publicity.

    • My best friend is in town this weekend, visiting Montreal from Toronto, and so tomorrow I’m going to chill with her on the sofa with weed and wine and it will be fantastic. Hooray. :) OH AND ALSO I JUST SIGNED THE LEASE ON MY NEXT APARTMENT THIS JULY! So I am literally overjoyed to have secured such a great condo! :D

  7. Winning the caption contest almost makes up for the fact that making that image put that LMFAO song in my head for most of the week.

  8. So, I’m not complaining cause Kelly’s posts are great no duh, but there has hardly been any Gabe lately. What’s up with that?

  9. Yay I made the Moster Ball! My first time! Thanks fro the votes! :) Have a great weekend everyone!

  10. I just read some really good life advice from our unstable friend in the hat. Forgive the size, but these are just basic facts that we need to read.

  11. YOU GUYS! I am so excited, you have no idea! I just signed the lease on an awesome new condo starting in July! I am super psyched to have found a great place on a really central corner! I am celebrating tonight and this weekend, because my roommate and I been searching hard for a month now. And like… my hard work at at my job is paying off and it’s awesome to feel happy and accomplished at work all at the same time. It’s a good weekend. Thank you for listening.

  12. Haha! I got my bath salts!

    • LOL This is so great I can’t even…. My son told me he was taking me to not one BUT TWO movies for Mother’s Day….. The Avengers and Men in Black 3 (when it comes out)!!! Can you tell he’s seventeen?! YAY! Happy Mother’s Day, Kate!

      My avatar is my young man at age three, chilling in his Batman jammies!

  13. i’ve made the monsters’ ball! granted it was for my rather dark and mean spirited rihanna joke (too soon?) so now i know what exactly i can and can’t joke about on here, it’s been noted.
