I like how they had to be reminded that some people in the military wear berets for it to be officially OK.

And you have to pronounce it that way, too," noted Gretchen Carlson. "That's the French way."

What other way would you pronounce beret, you incredible imbecile?

Holy farking shiat, I thought the SNL skit with these people was over the top parody, but it's actually a pretty fair representation. People watch this? Is this what has become of this country? Motherfarker.

Entiomology, which is the study of word origins, has always fascinated me. If you study the origins of beret, you arrive at some pretty astounding (and potentially scary) findings. The root, ber, in many languages causes the verb or noun it modifies to have a reflexive property. For example, in Indonesian, berbahaya means someone is "dangerous." "Ret," of course, comes from old middle English and refers to promoting bacterial infections in rope (by moistening them). In old French, then, the ber-ret would have been worn by someone who facilitated the spread of moisture and bacterial infections. I've even seen pictures, old chalk drawings and whatnot, drawn during the Black Plague in which dancing skeletons wearing berrets celebrated the piles of newly dead. Is this really the message we want our athletes to convey?

No.

But's it's spot-on for the military.

Here's Fox Nation's take. Yes, there are comments.
 
2012-07-11 11:44:15 AM
I'm guessing an Olympic outfit designed by Fox would be a Tricorner hat with a spring-loaded Bald Eagle that cries Drakkar Noir over anyone from a socialist country, a t-shirt with Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan giving an Alabama Pump Handle to a crying Michael Moore in the back of a Monster Truck as it runs over a dashiki-wearing Obama as he tries to clear a paper jam he created by trying to shred the Constitution and his Kenyan birth certificate simultaneously, sparkly American Flag Zubaz pants and Crocs.

Wow. They actually recommended wearing baseball caps or cowboy hats instead.

That's how you have to pronounce his name, too. That's the French way.

If our founding father had been REAL Americans, they would have found someone with the last name America, or Eagle, or Reagan,

Aren't these the same people who applauded the Olympics NOT going to Chicago? Or derided Obama for talking to Olympic officials to boost Chicago's bid? Why the fark are they suddenly interested when, 3 years ago, it was apparently unAmerican to support the Olympics at all.

I think I'm going to change my name to "Tax Cuts" and then run on the Republican ticket. I'll have a totally insane left-wing policy, but that won't matter - no one will ever be able to beat me in the primaries.

I remember how they made a huge deal about Obama taking time out of his busy schedule to fly over there as if to wow them with his cult of personality (to which they were immune), gleefully ignoring how 3 of the 4 nations in contention also sent over their head honchos (and the fourth sent a high-ranking leader). If he didn't go, they would have complained about that.

I'm on it:

"Obama must feel like he's too inexperienced to deal with hosting the Olympics in a post-9/11 world. Truly the terrorists have won."

"Obama was practically raised in foreign countries exclusively, which explains why he doesn't share America's deep pride and joy in watching our Olympic athletes compete and succeed. He probably thinks the whole thing is a waste of time."

"Obama doesn't believe in American exceptionalism, and so deep down, it's hard for him to watch countries compete with each other for one gold medal. He'd rather give every athlete a much less valuable prize, like a tin medal, for their participation, regardless of how good they are at their respective sport."

I'm endlessly amazed and saddened by this kind of thing. When I see liberal shows and personalities complaining about trivial things, making up controversy, or going on the record saying a load of dumb shiat, I think to myself "wow, that's a load of dumb shiat."

I simply can't fathom the type of person who watches Fox and Friends and nods.

It really is weird how we supposedly like England and hate France as a country, though, considering most everything awesome we got from France (hey, thanks for independence and that whole middle of the country!).
