Conversations With Greatness CCCVI



Ah, it's been a while since I've made a good Hegelian Dialectic joke. #highbrowhumour #pretentious-ahole

Devereux-La-La!

From AOL Jobs: Amy-Erin Blakely Busts Devereux Foundation with Large Breasts Lawsuit

I'm sorry, she does what?
BUSTS Devereaux Foundation
Well, at least they didn't call it a titillating story.

Among her allegations:
She was told by management "you have very large breasts — so does my wife, and I have talked to her about you and your breasts."

She learned that someone in management wanted to sit next to her "so he can look at her big titties" and that he "loves big titties."

She learned that she had been nicknamed "Big Tittie Baby."
A spokesperson for Devereux told the press that they "carefully investigated and concluded her claims . . . are either spurious or twisted in content and context to be deliberately inflammatory" — though it's hard to imagine any context in which "Big Tittie Baby" is an appropriate nickname. Even pornstars at least go for the double entendres.

Sigh.

An A-Paul-ling Joke

From BBC News: Gazza fails to show for drink-drive sentencing
The sentencing of former footballer Paul Gascoigne for drink-driving has been adjourned after he failed to show up at court.
Not the first time Gazza's failed to show up in the box when he should have, though, eh chaps?

If you are a fan of puns and English football circa 1990, that joke killed.

Skerry Stories

From BBC News: US Elections 2010: Congress splits between parties

This is not really what I want to talk about today, but:
US Republicans have seized the House of Representatives in mid-term elections, dealing a severe blow to President Barack Obama's ability to pass laws.
"Severe blow"? Really? He still has the Senate. He still has, hello, the WHITE HOUSE. And hey, overall he's still in a marginally better position than Clinton was in at this point in his presidency, and unless I'm remembering completely incorrectly Clinton still went on to do pretty well for himself.

So let's all just calm the fuck down, okay?

And now, for the funny quote taken out of context:
In Nevada, one of the most dramatic contests of the night, the Democrats' leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, fought off Tea Party challenger Sharron Angle. US Senator John Kerry reacted with delight: "Harry Reid isn't just Dracula, he isn't just Lazarus, he's our leader and our whole caucus is thrilled that he's unbreakable and unbeatable."
But you're saying he is Dracula? And that Democrats are thrilled to follow him? Oh my God... That Tea Party campaigner was right!
