Hey, wait a minute: NFL Cheerleaders Just Now Figuring Out They Work for Very Little Money, and Boy are They Mad!
You mean you can’t support a family of four cheer-leading for the Oakland Raiders? No way! They work more hours than they are paid for? Shut up! You say you get fined for not having the appropriate equipment for your job? Dude! Read the article,it is a little bit sad. They get paid $1200 bucks or so per season for looking hot and cheering. Pretty soon the President will step in on this “war on women” issue, and require full benefits and free pom-poms for all female cheerladies. Look – if you are not getting paid what you are owed, then that’s wrong. If you didn’t bother to read your employment contract, or you took a job that pays shitty because it is really kind of a hobby than a vocation, then bad on you. This just in: there are plenty of ladies who will cheer for free. I’m just saying.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 18 trips to carry that many people.
… not the made-up names some joker put on the air at KTVU-TV last week! Asiana airlines attorney Siu Yu has announced that the airline will sue the news station in San Francisco because it
“damaged the airline’s reputation by using bogus and racially offensive names for four pilots on a plane that crashed earlier this month in San Francisco.”
The network has since blamed an intern identified as Sum Yung Gai (who has since been released) for the error, because, you know, summer interns generally run a major city’s news broadcast while on break during their sophomore year of college. And nobody ever checks their work, especially if they are going to a really good school, which is the only place a top-notch news station like KTVU would ever consider hiring. See the epic footage of the bogus names, and the carefully-pronunciating anchor reporting those unusual names (which are obviously Chinese, not Korean!):
Alec Baldwin flipped whatever lid he has left, and ripped into a British reporter for reporting (gasp!) that his wife, Hilaria (truly her name) was tweeting/texting during James Gandolfini’s funeral. Well she was, right? To my knowledge, reporting that someone was “tweeting” is not a euphemism for something nasty or inappropriate. Just a fact. As of this writing, Baldwin has gone through about seven different Twitter accounts, and has lost zero endorsements (Capital One are you even listening?). Paula Deen has lost almost all of hers immediately for self-reported bad word 30 years ago, and Aaron Hernandez had a brief delay before being dropped by Puma, you know, because he’s charged with MURDER.
New this week on BRAVO – Lulu and Darlene get lost in the woods behind their trailer after taking too much Oxycodone. Betty Sue enters her famous “Opossum Oreo Cookie Cake” in the regional Pillsbury Bake-Off. Cletus finds a mysterious toilet on the front porch next to the one that is usually there.
The ladies’ favorite lingerie shop is closed because it had male employees, so Fatima tries to get a job to help it re-open, but cannot get the required permission from her husband. Religious police mistake hirsute friend Aliyah for a man and is arrested for being in a lingerie shop. Ladies are excited to go to a book fair with their husbands though they will use separate entrances and sit in separate areas. The ladies discuss the cleanliness of their breasts after reading remarks by the Prime Minister of Egypt.
I know, I didn’t get my cards out either. I will not launch into the hypocritical daily news items on the war on women, so instead here is a funny thing I saw on Twitter:
BREAKING: Oscar host Seth MacFarlane’s “We Saw Your Boobs” song has broken iTunes download records previously set by Adele’s “Skyfall” debut earlier this year.
HOLLYWOOD: Early reports seem to indicate that Harrison Ford (age 70) will reprise his role as smuggler-hero-pilot Han Solo in JJ Abrams’ Star Wars VII project that is in early pre-production stages. Insiders say that Ford will appear as Solo in a Tatooine nursing home, where a partially demented, incontinent Han Solo resides with other aging veterans of the imperial wars. Solo will be visited by his children, and other new characters. Ford is no stranger to hanging onto roles far longer than seems reasonable, as evidenced by his latest in the Indiana Jones franchise: “Indiana Jones and the Early Bird Special”.
