Animal Party!

I’m not a huge fan of Bitstrips, but every now and then I’ll see one that amuses me. This is a perfect example.

Early “Mad Men”

Truth is indeed sometimes stranger than fiction – take a look at some print ads that would never make it today.

Exhibit A:

On the other hand — I’ve found a couple of ads here in Great Falls in recent years that, while they aren’t quite as bad as the examples in the above link, are indeed a bit questionable:

Avoid PMS — really?

And impugning the beauty of ladies who wear glasses – not cool.

Jeremih in Billings

I had never heard of Jeremih until yesterday – but he and/or his touring crew apparently caused quite a ruckus at Fuddruckers down in Billings the other day.

Jerk move (and possibly criminal?), to be sure — but while doing some online digging about it, I was quickly disheartened – disgusted and sickened, actually – by some of the comments left on his Facebook page. Was Jeremih a jerk? Sure sounds like it.

But stuff like this is even worse:

It’s beyond sad and infuriating and nauseating. Racism is one of the absolute lowest, most despicable forms of human expression. It doesn’t help to know that it’s caused by ignorance and feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, helplessness, and shame — that doesn’t make it tolerable or acceptable. It’s just sick.

Also note that TMZ, in all of its trashy and skeevy normalcy, even managed to take a cheap shot at Billings in its article: R&B star Jeremih and his entourage allegedly went nuclear at a Fuddruckers … possibly because there was nothing better to do in Billings, Montana.

Honk Honk!

“Gotham” — sometimes referred to in our house as “Got Ham?” — might be the best scripted TV show I’ve seen in years.

A favorite spot from this week’s episode is The Penguin’s “golden goose” reply:

But, as with all previous episodes, the weakest link is Barbara.
