And who says models are stupid? Victoria’s Secret introduced their new Pink NFL Apparel line, including the Boston Red Sox in the “shop by team” category. Apparently they’re also the first to break the news that the Red Sox are hanging up their mitts in exchange for some helmets and extra padding this fall.

With a headline like this, is there really any need to read the story?
Apparently there has been a huge game involving Smirnoff Ice going on across US colleges for the past several weeks. It’s a game where
douchebags bros (can we just call them brobags, please?) run around trying to “ice” each other. I’m not entirely sure of the rules, but from the sounds of it, a brobag can present a Smirnoff Ice to a fellow brobag at any time, requiring them to get down on one knee and chug the sugary, alcoholic beverage. However, a brobag can “ice-block” the initial brobag by busting out a Smirnoff Ice that he was carrying on hand. In that case, the challenging brobag must chug both drinks.
From my experience with Smirnoff (before I was smart enough to realize that whiskey is the answer) that sounds like a whole lot of heartburn, and even more vomitting. Smirnoff is disgusting. The only time a guy would ever buy this stuff before was if he planned on hooking up with an underage mess of a girl. But Bros Icing Bros managed to reach these same frat boys in an entirely new way, and in response, Smirnoff shut the website down. I can’t decide if pulling the website was a good or bad idea, because at the end of the day it’s their brand that has to deal with this image of frat boy binge drinking. But I would put money on it that their 2nd quarter sales have gone up tremendously. I’m curious to see some numbers.
Oh no. Custom Twitter Nikes? If I ever see anybody wearing these, they better hope I don’t have a red drink in my hand.
So right now, this yellow box art thing is happening in Bryant Park. I’m not 100% sure what it is, because quite frankly, after entering the little yellow hut, I was semi fearing for the roof to collapse from those chicks stomping around up top. I read the print (artistically located only on one tiny wall, of course) but only managed to retain the words “Walk the walk,” something about women, and some artist’s name that I can’t even remember. Yeah, I have a horrible memory and a short attention span for abstract art, or whatever you want to call this.
I saw this girl walking by, checking out the exhibit before I got the chance to snap a photo when she crossed the street. I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure she wasn’t part of the exhibit. I think she just happened to be wearing a ridiculously similar dress today. How unfortunate.
I probably shouldn’t judge since I didn’t read all of the description, but I don’t think I’ll ever understand “art.”
An Australian cookbook mistakenly printed a recipe calling for “Freshly Ground Black People.” Cookbook fail!
Some British guy lost his license for three years when he got pulled over for driving a Barbie Car intoxicated. The man was going to visit a friend when a police officer rolled up beside him, asking “Are you alright there?” Haha, if I were that cop, I would’ve tailgated him all the way until he got to his destination, siren blaring like it was a high speed chase at 4mph. It’s crazy that he actually had his license suspended for three years though. The guy was obviously trying to avoid a DUI but still get from point A to point B as harmless as possible. But those things can be pretty reckless- I put one in a ditch when I was like 7 years old. Sober.
So whatta ya think? Did they use some sort of non-permanent ink to do this viral for Ray-Ban? Or is this guy doomed to look like a panda bear when he’s 70 years old?
I’m not really one to talk politics, but I can go on the record saying that I wish John McCain would’ve been a little wiser with his VP candidate choice. Look at the attention-seeking wackjob he’s introduced to the world. I’m all for John McCain. I’ve always liked him- his sense of humor, his beliefs, his solutions. But choosing Sarah Palin solely for the fact that she’s a woman? (I find it hard to believe that there was any other logical reason for this choice. Obama would be the first black president, so McCain needed something equally as historical running on his side. It was the year of trying to make history over relevant experience.) But now we are stuck with the never-dying media hog that is Sarah Palin. What does she even do nowadays? Why does she have a book? Has she ever said anything intelligent? The last thing I remember seeing about Sarah Palin was that she could not get Biden’s name correct during the debates. That’s why she immediately asked him “may I call you Joe?” She kept calling him “Senator O’Biden” because apparently remembering someone’s last name is too much of a task for her. Could you imagine if McCain were elected, and God forbid, he died? I can only imagine the entertainment value of our failing government to other countries around the world. And that whole “what’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull” thing drove me NUTS! I thought that was such a stupid comparison, it’s hardly even relevant to anything important to the election!
But back to the matter at hand, Sarah Palin now has an agreement for a television show with Fox News. She
does not have the brain capacity for a regular series, but instead will be a contributor on a show that airs “from time to time.” I know I’m no expert on Sarah Palin, but I truthfully believe that she is no expert on anything worthy of a single second of airtime.
P.S. I hate her hair.
