If I was in charge of the CDC, my next advisory would include information on how to survive a humorless asshole attack.

Also, for anybody even remotely connected to Jezebel to be offended by any sort of stereotype being propagated anywhere is, well...hm. Somewhere between funny and pathetic. Futhetic. Yeah, it's futhetic.

Katie J.M. Baker from Jezebel also found the CDC's post sexist, adding that the advice "perpetuates every single sexist wedding stereotype in the book."

"I get enough wedding-centric b------- from magazines, television, movies and my grandparents. Do I really need to get it from the government, too?" she pondered.

Well, they are androids. Their developing collective sense of humor is clearly a sign of growing self-awareness and, thus, the impending apocalypse. Our only hope is that they and the coming zombie hoards kill each other off, catching the political cyborgs in the crossfire.

Finally! Something I can get behind for my tax dollars to be spent on! Love the job they're doing over there at the CDC. Making themselves relevant and getting into the news like this so more people are prepared for disasters is awesome! Just imagine how that whole Katrina thing would've turned out if people had actually be prepared for it.

Her and Danny Glover both. Seriously... lighten the fark up you two morons.

Besides, nobody in the general population generally pays much attention to the CDC. A lighthearted communique like this can really draw attention to them in a good way. For once.

And personally, I think to hell with anyone who derides this as a waste of tax payer dollars. A completely dysfunctional federal legislature full of crooks using their positions to shovel ass-loads of money at each other, their buddies and their corporate masters and THIS is what you complain about as waste? Something that probably took some low-level peon with a good sense of humor an hour or two to write... Wow. Great job sniffing out that government waste. Have some farking perspective.

The whole point of Jezebal and Starting point is to make sure that the opinions of uninformed contrarian assholes are broadcast to the world.

$10, $50 or $1M my point is taxes should be used as appropriated. If this was part of an add compaign that's fine. If some employee decided to be funny instead of whatever their job I see it as a problem.

? Not sure about the comparison. Questioning the military, the war, the use of the internet for personal use?

It's unfortunate that their are morons who can't read between the lines and see what the CDC article is actually about. But the CDC is relying on these morons to make a fuss about this to get the word spread about disaster preparation.

Also, if you don't have an emergency GTFO bag, you should go get one right now.

Because it's obviously a cadre of men who keep the Bridezilla ratings high, otherwise why would such a show that takes the very idea of weddings and throws them in the crapper still be on the air? The show I want to see is Groomithrax - Six months after Bridezilla, where we see how these men have survived the initial assault and what their lives are like.

I've come to the conclusion (in my humble opinion) that there's a culturally ingrained mindset wherein every woman is a princess on her wedding day, which relieves her of any responsibility for logical, realistic thought for the six months or more of planning preceding it. I don't care if your wedding costs two thousand or twenty thousand, women do not act right leading up to that event. Everything, and I mean everything from a death in the family to the relationship itself crumbling apart takes a back burner to more important issues like the wording of invitations, the reception music playlist and whether to offer a vegetarian option for the meal.

It's HER day, get it? And no one, be it you, the weather or Jesus Christ Himself better dare fark it up for her. I've seen a timid, compassionate 23-year-old feast on the eyes of someone who tried to screw up even a single dance at the reception.

You don't "survive" a wedding. No one survives, because some part of you dies whether you're a direct participant or a blissful observer. Your only hope is to get a decent night's sleep and maybe a hummer if you're lucky, if you're not dealing with the resulting Ebola from shaking 200 hands and getting two dozen kisses.

The irony of it all is that the anti-gay crowd views marriage as a sacred thing, and I've never seen an event more engorged with the seven deadly sins than a wedding.

/But not our wedding, puddin', it was pure magic.

I worked for the Dept. of VA for a few years in the early-mid 90s. The amount of money spent by the CDC is nothing in comparison to what they blew money on in those days.

But, not everyone is laughing. When asked about the guide on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" on Wednesday morning, actor Danny Glover had some choice words for the CDC. Admittedly, he didn't get the joke at first, according to Politico.

God damn it, America.

With DoMA already declared unconstitutional by two circuit courts and pending appeals to the Supreme Court, is it really wise of the Federal Government to put out a Bridezilla survival guide? Or isn't this going to be additional evidence of animus and discrimination?

Lipo: yeah, because the CDC does a lot of hurricane preparedness, unlike that farking National Hurricane Center which needs to get a handle on that TB outbreak down there in Florida.


The National Hurricane Center's job is to tell you where the hurricane is and when it's going to get here, the CDC's job(along with FEMA and your local authorities) is to tell you how to not die when that happens.

Oh wait they don't call them Singles parties anymore. Goddess gatherings? Where you're not all entirely lesbians but preeetty darn close.
