Shit that Pissed me Off – 5/15

Men’s Rights Idiots are Upset About Fury Road Even Though They Haven’t Seen it Yet

I haven’t seen the film yet.  I’m very much looking forward to the film and I have to admit, the fact a bunch of Men’s Rights jackasses are upset about the film makes me want to buy two tickets just to piss them off a little bit more.

The basic issue seems to be the idea the film has a woman who is, apparently, pretty badass.  This, apparently, takes away from the badassness of Max because a dude cannot be badass if there is a badass woman around.

Here's Arnold Schwarzenegger from Terminator 2.  The one with the bad ass version of Sarah Connor.  See how emasculated he looks?

I can see how this would ruin a movie for someone who has no interest in anything more than watching dudes blow stuff up.

Should that be their primary interest, I think they would be happier with the Expendables franchise.  Or the Die Hard franchise.  Or any number of other films that are all about dudes blowing shit up.

What I really want to do is buy an extra ticket and send it to one of these guys. Then I can tell them their boycott of the film failed because I bought a ticket for them.

Comedy Blog – Understanding Wyoming

I’m currently on vacation in Wyoming.  We’ve been visiting Grand Teton National Park for the last few days and today we are traveling to Yellowstone.

If you are going to use this information to rob my house, please be aware that we have a house sitter, a burglar alarm, four attack cats, and a house full of shit you probably don’t want anyway.

Since we’ve arrived in Wyoming, we’ve found there are some things that are a little different out here in one of only two states that lacked the creativity to shape their state like something other than a rectangle.

The first thing I’ve noticed is that FOX News isn’t just a news station.  It is the only TV news station there is.  I looked up MSNBC on my hotel room directory it was listed.  When I tried to punch in the numbers, however, the remote just laughed at me.

I don’t think everyone in Wyoming is a conservative.  I just think everyone in Wyoming assumes that everyone else in Wyoming is a conservative.

Another concept that is different is the definition of “back yard.”

I have a back yard and it is quite small.  Even when I’m using “back yard” to reference something close to my house, like say Cub Foods, I’m talking about someplace that is less than a mile from my home.

We ran into a family from Idaho having a picnic yesterday.  They told us that the Grand Tetons were “in their back yard.”

The Grand Tetons are in a completely different state!
