There Ain’t No Party Like a Microsoft ******* Party!
From Cabel’s Blog LOL via Daring Fireball, I bring you: Microsoft…After Dark.
Seriously. When are you guys going to fire everybody in marketing? The laptop hunter ads have been the only thing even halfway decent out of Redmond, and they basically say, “If you were rich and cool, you’d have an Apple. Windows: for lame, poor people.” The Microsoft Songsmith and Windows 7 marketing seem to have been done by a high school class for a project. And it wasn’t a top class, if you know what I mean.
(Hat tip: Shem)
You Forgot “Profit”…
Step 1: Patent something already in a published spec.
Step 2: Use a term derived from a notoriously litigious company’s hit product, who make software covered by your claims, and threaten to sue.
Step 3: Darl McBride? Is that you? Where are we?
Just so I don’t let April go by with no posts…
First, Iowa’s court overturns the ban on gay marriage. Then Vermont legalizes it explicitly. Then SWINE FLU!!! PANIC!!!!111!!ELEVEN!!1
I guess we all should apologize to former Senator Santorum.
Stop Salivating Over a New Deal II…
…and watch this:
Sandy Smith in Sex-Crazed Horror!
Unfortunately, not me, a different Sandy Smith who’s a producer in Britain.
And the people horrified were British pensioners who went on cheap holiday to Mexico. Part of the savings was agreeing to be put in a hotel once you arrive and they determine who had room. Trouble was, a few of them, without foreknowledge, got sent to, well, a swingers’ hotel.
IN SEX-PARTY HELL
– Couples romp in pool – Boozy oral sex games -Swingers play in nude
BRITISH tourists looking for a peaceful fortnight in the sun found themselves trapped in a sleazy resort surrounded by sex-crazed swingers.
Side note: I have a soft spot for tabloids in the British style. That’s perhaps why I don’t get as upset over Fox News as some. Sure it’s right wing, but in the end it’s about the Shock and Horror of the day, and they’ll be just as happy if Obama wins so they can be Shocked and Horrified some more without any of that apologizing and covering up they’ve been doing for the past eight years.
So, on with the show:
Marlene Black, 65, a retired chef from Hull, who was with her daughter Kym Maxwell, said: “I saw two men with a board saying ‘I am a big loser’. A second later I realised they were both starkers.
“Women were by the pool doing things with bananas and the men had their blow-up dolls.
“It was filthy and depraved. I have never seen people as obsessed with sex.”
Marly, baby, don’t front. You were a chef. I’ve read Kitchen Confidential. You’re not fooling anyone. You’re also 65, which makes you a Baby Boomer. It worked the same way over there, like, wow, free love.
What did the chef see?
SORDID: Man licks woman’s breasts as onlookers ogle the ‘Tequilla game’
Shocking. SHOCKING. I am UPSET. I do not have nearly the BMI to be any part of this. And, you know, the committed partner. But even if she were more open-minded, there would be a lot of physical training, and I have a chronic laziness condition.
So where did my Google vanity search get the link? Here:
SHOCKING: Banana game gets more depraved
Watchdog editor Sandy Smith said: “We decided to go out ourselves because we wanted to be sure the couples who complained to us weren’t just a bit prudish.
“But our team was shocked by what they saw and were able to film and they’re young and broadminded.
Yeah, Sandy, I’m sure. Good journalism, that. Dedication despite the hardship of the story. Also, you’re probably as pasty and blobby as I am, right? Let’s be honest here, that’s why you didn’t join in on those reindeer games…though I’d love to see your expense reports.
“We’re glad the firm has offered compensation after Watchdog got involved and said it won’t put ‘allocation on arrival’ guests in the Blue Bay Getaway again.”
Ah, a happy ending…if you know what I mean. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
Woot! Fafnir’s back!
Go see a blog way more better than mine.
And to see why, see how extraordinary rendition is like Three’s Company or how mere marijuana becomes the unsold sale, just by existing–thanks to the physics of commerce!
Edit: I worry about the posting date of the new Fafnir post. Still, a new Fafnir post is welcome, even if he’s joshin an foolin.
Another Sandy Smith Pops Up to Sully My Name
By complete coincidences, I found both of these items on the intarwebz today.
First, a namesake who’s a “psychic, medium, and animal communicator.” Because maintaining the skill to plausibly “read” real people is too much, you have to go after the clients who can’t refute your bullshit. If the victims weren’t so mind-bogglingly stupid, I’d feel worse about them being taken advantage of by a harpie charlatan.
As if in commentary, my RSS reader gave me this cartoon from the wonderful xkcd:
Rudy Announces Name Change: Rudolph Giuli911
To better clarify why he should be President and drive home his message of freedom through “cede[ing] to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do,” Rudy neé Giuliani has announced he has legally changed his name.
Henceforth, he wishes “Giuliani” to be spelled “Giuli911”.
