Take It Like a Man, as only Cher knows

This concept is not very sophisticated, yet the song and video express Cher’s gender fantasy. Women are strong, men are pretty. Thanks, Eric the fez, my old college roommate for bringing this religious work to my attention.

Is it too soon to confess that Boston marathon bomber is sexy?

Dzhokhar_Tsarnaev

I know that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has done some unforgivable actions. Yet, the steady leak of social media photos show this stoned, high school wrestler in some pretty hot poses. Dzhokhar, you could have been a male model or porn star, instead of a mass murderer!

ps: Thanks to Ericthefez for immediately realizing the highly taboo nature of this come-hither Facebook look.

BEHIND THE VEIL: Never-Before-Seen Footage of Secret Mormon Temple Rituals

From the super creepy music at the opening, this “hidden camera” view of secret Mormon rituals is superb. I admit I got bored in the middle of the 7 minute clip, but perked up at the end to learn about secret handshakes with God through a veil, which looked like nothing more than a series of glory holes shrouded in white linen. Thanks, Eric the fez for the link.

Irish priest accidentally shows x-rated photos at elementary school parents’ meeting about first communion

Priest blames porn projection on memory stick. Wonder why he didn’t blame PowerPoint, Microsoft operating system, or the devil. For me the best part is the voices of the Irish newscasters.

I also like that the Cardinal thought it best to issue a statement that he had “no advance knowledge of the pornography.”

Thanks, Ericthefez. No, I had *not* seen this before. But it produced many, many laughs.

China-Georgetown Basketball Brawl

My readers know that I only care for sports in so far as there is someone interesting to look at. This basketball photo satisfies my basic requirements: Hot guys in uniforms (and not!), check. Inexplicable actions, check. Physical conflict that seems to mask physical attraction, check.

And I am left wondering why is the main stomper holding hands and locked arms with his teammate to his right?

There’s some story about how this brawl put an early end to an exhibition match in China with Washington DC’s Georgetown team. Thanks Ericthefez for photo & story.

“Good to know,” the husband says

Apparently the super-queenie and very ugly Pope now suggest that condom use is OK for male prostitutes. (Via Ericthefez). I love the illogic of its use “in some cases.”

“There may be a basis in the case of some individuals, as perhaps when a male prostitute uses a condom, where this can be a first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility, on the way toward recovering an awareness that not everything is allowed and that one cannot do whatever one wants,” the pope said.

Do you think that the male prostitutes should use them by themselves, or with their clients who may include married men and ladies who are paying for their services. Maybe you need to be irresponsible in order to be given permission to be responsible? That’s very Zen, no?

Creepy Neverland-themed Christmas ride

From my tipster Ericthefez, with this note: “Sorry the photo is such poor quality.  I found this ‘ride concept’ at San Jose’s Christmas in the Park kind of creepy.  I let <my only daughter, name redacted> go on the swings, but you better believe I kept a close eye on her.”

In related Xmas news, I heard my first “Last Christmas” song over the weekend, so yes, holiday madness is upon Japan. Fortunately, what Japan lacks in memory-crushing medicinal meds, they make up for in memory-suppressing booze, love for drinking, and end of year “forgetting” parties (bounenkai, perfect for work or friends).

BTW, which do you find more insipid, the George Michael’s original 1980s version of “Last Christmas” or Exile’s more recent cover? What would the Japanese royal family prefer? Please feel free to comment (without defaming our majesties).
