Thinking about that fire chief, I’m now 100% convinced that jerking off every soldier, cop, and firefighter for decades, but to a whole new level since 9/11, has turned alll of them into utter shit heads.

That’s called diversionary things, like jobs or a social life.

Great timing, Tim Horton’s. Syd Crosby being nice to a black guy, only for it to be revealed a dream is rather fitting.

“The League has not published a rationale behind their decision”

It’s called the, we feel really stupid letting Hamilton hire a guy cover up a gang rape, so we better not let Hamilton bring in a woman beater this season, decision.

I’m smoking this J thinking like, you’ve gotta make mmj recreational. You got people handling this ‘medication’ — before it’s ever packaged– who are, what, making $16/hr and have like four hours of training? It seems like primed for some kind of problem batch or whatever. The kind of thing that you never want with meds but, recreational drugs, whatever.

Move to Oregon. Construction is booming and the bubble will never burst!

We visited Oregon in Feb. The weather was rainy, our airbnb was next to like a farm, our soon-to-be extinct Cats got DESTROYED by Oregon as we were the only people there in red, and we ended up walking through a bad part of PDX — we loved it. We didn’t make it out this summer but we’re definitely going to visit next year at a nicer time.

Oh, right. I forgot. We should hang out next time. Maybe I can wrangle some others.

Does the bad part of PDX only have chains? But, you know, since it’s Portland, the chains are, like, Qdoba and Chop’t? Maybe a lone Elevation Burger?

I love Oregon so much, I will not fully boycott America just so I can visit. You could do a lot worse.

That’s why I moved here.

What are we pouring out in honor of Hef? Expired mayo out of a limp container?

So Katherine Heigl is shilling cat litter now. I guess being an insufferable bitch doesn’t pay teh bills.

Why all the Heigl hate?

She didn’t comment on the dick pic I sent her. Obviously lesbian.

Reputation of being a total Khunt aside, she ended up bashing a lot of workers she worked with on sets and then took shots at Judd Apatow for her role in Knocked Up, which made people at #upforwhatever hate her.

She made that commercial a year or two ago. Isn’t she on some sitcom now?

Looks like The Hef has gone to the big Grotto in the sky.

It annoys me how much she seems to enjoy going braless, makes a video set in the rain where she wears a bra that is apparently made of iron.
