The Biggest Drug Bust In Mexico’s History Featuring “Catholic” Homer Simpson

October 21, 2010

Homer Simpson marked marijuna found in Mexico

Does this mean the Vatican supports smokin’ a doobie?

From an article published in the official Vatican newspaper, the Osservatore Romano :

“Few people know it, and he does everything to hide it. But it’s true: Homer J. Simpson is Catholic. [The Simpsons is] tender and irreverent, scandalous and ironic, boisterous and profound, philosophical and sometimes even theological, nutty synthesis of pop culture and of the lukewarm and nihilistic American middle class…among the few TV programs for kids in which Christian faith, religion and questions about God are recurrent themes.”

Paired with this little discovery from the CBS News website…

In one of the biggest pot busts in recent years, Mexican authorities seized at least 105 tons of marijuana bound for the U.S. The drugs, seized in predawn raids in Tijuana, have an estimated street value of $340 million. Festooning some of the parcels with an image of Homer Simpson saying, “I’m going to get high, dude!” may appear naive. But considering the Vatican’s newspaper declared Homer Simpson a “true Catholic” over the weekend, perhaps it was more a coded plea for clemency.

TimingD’oh!

Bruce Springsteen Photo Bombs Couple’s Engagement Photo… In Jersey!

October 19, 2010

 

Song of the Day  :  Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen

Celebrity Guest for engagement photos? Yes please

What is a photo bomber you may ask? Well, we weren’t all that sure either. Thanks to our good friends at UrbanDictionary.com, we were able to find the most comprehensive definition. According to their website, a photo bomber is “someone who either intentionally or unintentionally ruins an otherwise normal photo. The ‘photo bomber’ will be doing such things as: making faces, gestures, naked, or getting naked, in a costume, or doing some other equally hilarious action.”

It doesn’t seem like The Boss is doing anything to ruin this couple’s photos… maybe this is his take on guerilla marketing for his new release – The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town?

Willy Wonka’s Three-Course Gum To Become Reality!

October 18, 2010

 

Song of the Day  :  Savoy Truffle – The Beatles

Willy Wonka's Three Course Gum Is So Close we can taste it!

Stride gum has a wonderful new flavor. It’s called Shift – a gum that takes your mouth through a magical journey, first tasting like citrus and then shifting to a fresh minty breeze. Not the greatest combination in our opinion, but the sensation is nothing short of bewilderment.

This gum got us thinking. Wasn’t there a tale, years ago, about a man trying to revolutionize the gum-chewing industry? A crazy candy scientist who believed gum could not only change flavors, but satisfy a craving for an entire meal?

That man was Willy Wonka. While he may have only been a fictional character, his ideas were as concrete as they come. Now, scientists are piggybacking on Wonka’s dreams and finding some great discoveries along the way.

Insane Clown Posse Revealed! Evangelical Christians Through And Through

October 11, 2010

Song of the Day  :  Luck Be a Lady – Frank Sinatra

Insane Clown Posse proves to be sent from the heavens
We’re not used to dealing with the Juggalo type. You know, those nasty, destructive, freaky-clown-make-upy kids that hang out in abandoned skate parks. Still unsure what a Juggalo is? They’re the scum of the music scene, the harbingers of hate! Most importantly, Juggalos are fanatics of the seemingly satanic acid-rappers the Insane Clown Posse.

Surprisingly, the Insane Clown Posse just revealed through a new song that they are actually Evangelical Christians.

Um.

We could have sworn it was The Blues Brothers who said “We’re on a mission from God”, but we’ve been wrong before. Show us what we need to know, prophets!

ICP shows us that we’re the morons


Masked Men Try To Rob Pizza Hut, End Up Shot Or Dead

October 1, 2010

Song of the Day  :  Duran Duran – Hungry Like the Wolf

Pizza Hut robbery gone terribly wrong

Amidst this hiss of smoke rising from their lead arms, the red-neon of the ovens cast an extra-large glow on the scene of the crime. The Pizza Hut employees hand-tossed their guns to the ground and slowly spoke, “Sorry fellas, but this time we don’t offer carry-out.”

Alright, so maybe it wasn’t that noir-esque, but this news story is a slice right out of a 1940’s private eye flick.
