OH, you’ve earned this.

Phil Parkinson.

I don’t know who this fool is, but he is responsible for THE most offensive marketing of the past year, and that includes the fool woman who did that ridiculous, glamorized domestic violence ad for her salon in Canada. No, really. This happened. For more details, check my archives.

I stopped everything I was doing specifically because this was too disgusting. This lands you in the oh, HELL no!! section of dumbasses.

Pictures of the Auschwitz, posing as a threat to calories?! Millions of people were starved, tortured, murdered and this location was base camp 1 for human injustice and your idea was to use this for your gym?! You showed no remorse, and were thrilled when your Google numbers went up!

To do something this crass for the sake of bringing up membership numbers in your gym, is reprehensible. You managed to bypass all of the Republican caucus nonsense and go straight to the head of the line. You win for the week, marketing genius!

It’s like I never left.

Brother.

I’m getting real tired of seeing the inside of my eyelids.

Could someone please find his Grindr account and get this over with?!

Bad idea/ Good idea

There are some people in the world who have too much time on their hands and create havoc like the putz who did this.

And there are some people in the world who have too much time on their hands and create GENIUS!!

Just a thought.

The stupid. It burns!!

So, about five days ago, I saw this headline from an article about a Kentucky church banning interracial couples from becoming members.
“I’m sorry, what?”

So, I just read that a church conference overturned their moment of stupid. It was voided because it kinda, sorta, I don’t know violated church, state and federal by-laws. Yeah, maybe someone should have checked on that BEFORE they made themselves the laughing stock of Kentucky.

In other stupid:
Michelle Bachmann.
Yeah.
Sometimes, it’s just too easy.
And yes, I heard about the kid who schooled her about his mommy.
He’s not the first. No doubt, he won’t be the last. But he’s on record because I imagine (coaxed by mommy or not), he’s the youngest.

But of all the very dumb things I have seen in the past couple of days, this punk is number one with a freaking bullet.

The Muppets?!

That’s all you’ve got?!?

The Muppet movie gives their villain a name like Tex Richman and that means the entire movie is about subtle manipulation of our children?

I’m not even going to talk about how pathetic that is. I’ll try a different tack.

Now, I understand the need to call out subliminal messages that are making a concerted effort to instill an unreasonable sense of mistrust on an oil corporation.

I mean, what have oil companies ever done to hurt people, plants, animals and general eco-systems?

But to pull out that tired, Communist card on the Muppets?! That’s a new low.

Rule #1: You don’t screw with the Muppets, jack.

Rule #2: You don’t. Screw. With. THE MUPPETS!!
Eric Bolling wins this week.

Or so I thought.

To be continued…

*snort*

Okay.
So, um…
I had not seen the GOP presidential debate, because A) I was in rehearsal for my show, and B) It would have taken place after dinner and I like to keep my food down.

So, I was completely oblivious to this little mishap that Gov. Rick Perry had done. All I knew was that there was a ruckus about it. Everyone was talking about this being Perry’s swan song. I was not so optimistic.
Then I read the transcript.
Then I actually watched what they’re calling, “the end of his campaign.”


Optimism doesn’t cover it.
This gave me such… glee. Sweet, evil, glee.
Hey, Rick. You might want to re-think eliminating the agency of Education.
Just sayin’.

What’s Wrong with This Picture?

So, this ad right here is for a hair salon in Edmonton.
No, seriously. They decided the best way to get people talking about their salon is by posting ads that exhibit a sign of domestic violence as “chic.”

I’m sorry, what?

Well, the talking part is definitely happening. I’m talking about it now.
So, I’m going to need any and all Canadians to let these putzes know that spreading this message is unacceptable, plain and simple.
Fluid Salon in Edmonton does not deserve women coming into their salon, spending their money.
This makes me nuts.

Store owner Sarah Cameron said the point of the ads was to spark controversy, but they were never meant to target or attack anyone.

“It might strike a chord, but as the way our society and community is getting, we keep tailoring everything because everyone is getting so sensitive,” said Cameron.

Oh. The problem is not that you’re posting an ad that seems to glamorize and sexualize ABUSE.
The problem is we’re being too sensitive and automatically connecting your “edgy” marketing with domestic violence.

Well, on behalf of all us overly sensitive, whiny crackpots, may I say, “I’m sorry.”

And by “I’m sorry,” I mean, ahem…
“Suck on it, you ignorant ass!
Are you that obsessed with Mad Men that you thought this misguided series of photos somehow would be “revolutionary”? Your biggest clientele (I’m guessing) is women. When anyone who’s seen the ad makes the immediate connection to violence in the home that is expected to be overlooked because the attacker comes bearing gifts (like say, the diamond necklace the man in the picture is holding) and you don’t, what does that say about you?”

We may be sensitive, but I’ll take that over this crap equalling more dollars for you. Under NO circumstances should you profit from this ‘ish.

One commenter on their Facebook page, actually wrote, “hottest battered woman I’ve ever laid my eyes upon … .”

And you seriously don’t see anything wrong with that?!?

Okay, my whining aside, let me ask you this, Ms. Cameron: What exactly was your intention?
If glamorizing domestic violence wasn’t the goal, the intended reaction, then what was? I’m dying to know.

Being a woman does not give you a pass on this one. In fact, you should know better than your male counterparts in this situation.

You should know better, Sarah Cameron.

You have managed to knock Michele Bachmann off of her assured seat on the DA throne this week in one fell swoop.
This kind of “10 pounds of stupid” is typical for politicians. You brought a whole new level to this game.

Congratulations. You’re a Bachmann-level dumbass.
People work for years to get there, but you clearly have raw talent.
