It’s been a mammoth week around here, just to show we have an empathy bone, we’re assuming everyone on the planet had the same mammoth week. Wikipedia describes Friday as “Friday (i/ˈfraɪdeɪ/ or /ˈfraɪdi/) is the day between Thursday and Saturday.” HELPFULL AS EVER? What can one say to that? Thank F_ck it’s Friday! So you need a smile?? ~ don’t get excited, we only do clean.
Back in May, those hipsters at the CDC – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention- put up a Zombie Warning, clearly it was fake, it did however trip the CDC website, actually thats being modest, the Zombie page took out the entire CDC site. The interweb is full of scams, urban legend and hoaxters, this is true, truly!
If you missed the chaos, here’s a quick roundup!
May 18, 2011 @ 2:43pm: A few hours ago, the CDC tweeted about a blog post on their site, called “Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse” Considering the unending popularity of zombies, strongly perpetuated by the web culture, the CDC’s web server was subsequently blitzed by page requests. Even our favorite search behemoth – Google – had some serious issues caching the page, it took almost a day for Google to get a snapshot of the CDC page up.
Those same hipster boffins at CDC have the page back up, pour yourself a glass of your favorite poison, light up if you got ‘em, sit back, chill your soul and get amused at the rubbish that amuses the rest of the world. [if you missed the CDC link, here it is again:> http://emergency.cdc.gov]
Have a Wonderfilled Weekend! D★D
Childrens books, hmmm . . . The problem with this genre is the audience, without which it would be an admirable, even honorable calling. So lets imagine they don’t exist, lets imagine writing a childrens book that only the most lowbrow or hippest parents would ever read to a child. And hey presto, it’s been done already. Go the F**k to Sleep. written by Author: Adam Mansbach with illustrations by Ricardo Cortes, Go the F**k to Sleep is an <R> 18+ childrens book. Mansbach is an American author and professor of fiction at Rutgers University. His previous scribblings include Angry Black White Boy and The End of the Jews - for which he won the California Book Award for fiction in 2008.
If you’ve read any of my rants, you’ll know that I despise children, they’re a necessary evil, a little like salmonella. Unfortunately they exist and any opportunity to take the upper-hand is grabbed with glee. Mansbach has created a wonderfilled thing in Go the F**k to Sleep, he’s allowed the childless among us to grin at the antics of breeders, for this I thank him. Oh the book. buy it, read, stick it on a coffee table. There’s also an outstanding Audio Book, read by a man who’s voice was made to cuss, Samuel L. Jackson, snippet below.
The Audible.com spoken word rendition of Go the F**k to Sleep is well worth the piddly $1.99. Go the F**k to Sleep hasn’t endeared me to children, or parents, it has placed a rather large grin on my face though.
Go The F**k to Sleep is available at Amazon:> www.amazon.com

The U.S.A has just settled it’s soul with what has been a reflective week, 9/11 was a once in a lifetime event that has molded the minds of an entire nation, indeed the world. The fallout from such a catastrophic event is still heart-felt by many, a nation is quite seriously still recovering. An event that millions of Americans have gone to great lengths to remember with dignity and poise as only the Americans can do, well not ALL Americans. We had to put this story on the back-burner for a week – it’ll be clear any moment – We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids Book of Freedom is a coloring book about the tragic events of 9/11 2001, featuring pictures of the burning World Trade Center towers and the execution of Osama bin Laden, we kid you NOT!
Wayne Bell, the publisher of Really Big Coloring Books, says the book was never meant to be controversial, that it’s simply based on market research, on what people are looking for. The fact that it contains scenes that are entirely emotive and irrationally biased is beside the point, that the book is also most likely unsuitable for children seems to have been ignored. Bell goes on to describe the coloring book as “a simplistic honest tool” to “educate children on events on 9/11″ Read the full article »»»»
We’ve had a stinky day around here at the highpants office, everything is not-quite-right with the day, you get it right? Stuff just doesn’t want to go, no biggies, just lots of nothings annoying the beegeebous out of the day. Then this little nugget hit the newsroom, and well we thought geez, it could be worse?!
Let me start by saying: We’re all just thankful she has a loving and supportive family, cause if she was my mother: I’d disown her!!
Great-grandmother Joan Lloyd, of Abergele, North Wales – how’d you know she’d be Welsh? huh – finally got the breast enlargement that she always wanted, at the age of 65. Lloyd lost her husband last year and decided it was time to invest his hard earned on some Pammy style cosmetic surgery, she transformed her breasts from an A cup to an F cup – for the boys, thats like going from a Ashley Greene to a Lucy Pinder.
“And now I feel so much more confident about myself. I feel my boobs have actually given me a new lease of life.”
Lloyd figured she owed herself a treat after having spent 15 years caring for her husband while he was ill. Amusingly sh’e intent on using her new assets as often as possible – possibly with anyone willing – she’s been on a few dates, seems she’s also found her mental age, one of her companions was a 24-year-old, eew, doesn’t that break the socially accepted ‘sibling rule‘ your not allowed to date anyone younger than your oldest child?
