Isn't it ironic? Don't cha think?
 
2012-10-17 08:33:09 AM  
Did she refuse to go down on him in a theatre?
 
2012-10-17 08:33:35 AM  
If someone's going that far out of their way to piss you off, just leave. It's not worth it, no matter how infatuated you are.
 
2012-10-17 08:33:37 AM  
At least it wasn't Meredith Brooks. Or ::shudder:: Ani.
 
2012-10-17 08:35:10 AM  
Is all three an option?
 
2012-10-17 08:35:33 AM  
What did Chris Rock say? I don't condone what he did but I understand. He also said a bunch of stuff that was racist, too but this was something to make white people feel good about being racists.
 
2012-10-17 08:36:38 AM  
I just hit myself in the face with a plate after reading that f*cked up headline for the 5th time.
 
2012-10-17 08:36:55 AM  
It was a plate in the face, how quickly he was replaced.
 
2012-10-17 08:38:39 AM  
I just poutined all over my keyboard.
 
2012-10-17 08:40:51 AM  
And then they put on Florence and the Machine to be "ironic".

I love it when it all ties up into a neat bow.
 
2012-10-17 08:41:20 AM  
Man that headline cracked me the f*ck up.
 
2012-10-17 08:41:23 AM

i guess he figured his boyfriend needed a change from being hit in the face with a hot load.

Gay people problems....
 
2012-10-17 08:46:37 AM  
Because of the shiatty grammar in headline, I'm not sure who should be charged either.
 
2012-10-17 08:47:26 AM  
"Are you thinking of me when you f*ck her?"

"No."

WHAP!
 
2012-10-17 08:49:19 AM  
If your boyfriend has been blaring Alanis all day, you break the stereo.
If your boyfriend has been aggressively lip-synching Alanis in your face all day, you cut the biatch with a shard of her grandmother's china.
 
2012-10-17 08:50:47 AM  
Cause I got one hand in my pocket and the other hand is swinging a plate to your face!
 
2012-10-17 08:54:05 AM  
Isn't it dramatic? Don't cha think? Yeah, I really do think...
 
2012-10-17 08:54:24 AM  
This would be a valid use of the Stand Your Ground defense, methinks.
 
2012-10-17 08:56:09 AM  
How 'bout them transparent dangling carrots?
 
2012-10-17 09:18:12 AM  
Both. They both deserve to be charged for being cruel.

Florida's Sodomy Laws

Florida Criminal Code § 800.02 establishes punishment for "any unnatural and lascivious act".

Adults are prohibited from living "in an open state of adultery" by § 798.01. Adults are also prohibited from engaging in "lewd and lascivious behavior" by § 798.02.

Punishment for violations of the sections defining a unnatural and lascivious act, living in open adultery, lewd and lascivious behavior, are all misdemeanors of the second degree, punishable by a term of imprisonment not exceeding 60 days and a fine that shall not exceed $500.

I'm not saying it's the way it should be, I'm just saying that it's the way it is until the sheeple change it.

Jagged Little Pill was the soundtrack for my deployment to Bosnia in 1996. No one ever asks me if I have PTSD.

Does she even have enough music to play all day.....? Seriously, is she even still making albums?

Define lewd and lascivious behavior that can occur in the privacy of one's home?

Sodomy laws were shot down by the Supreme Court.

CSB:

Walking home from the pool one evening in my complex years ago, my girlfriend and I saw multiple law enforcement agencies represented in front of my block of apts. Out come the Mag-Lites to blind us as we approached in silent wonder.
LEO: "Do you live here?"
Me: "Yes"
LEO: "Which apartment is yours?"
Me: "H147"
LEO: "Who's in your apartment?"
Me, looking at Cathy: "I don't know...could be anybody". (Cathy's heartbroken BFF was over and had been chatting up my pal Joe...well, Joe was now gone).
LEOs had been pounding on my locked apt door for some time due to a noise complaint. I unlocked it and we found passed out BFF; the stereo receiver was powered off; the volume knob set where-no-man-has-gone-before; and the CD changer set to 'One Song Repeat'......

/Alannis Morrissette - You Oughta Know. I guess it had been playing for some time...augmented by a dual-cone down-firing subwoofer.
 
2012-10-17 09:54:35 AM  
I wonder what their make-up sex was like....
 
2012-10-17 09:55:38 AM  
I kind of figured it would be two guys. You don't usually see a lesbian couple going off half cocked over Alannis.

lockheed1039: Me, looking at Cathy: "I don't know...could be anybody". (Cathy's heartbroken BFF was over and had been chatting up my pal Joe...well, Joe was now gone).


Could be anybody? Really? You're really going to tell the cops it could be ANYONE in your place? You just let so many thousands of random people in there that at any point you have no idea if anyone is in your home, much less who they are?
 
2012-10-17 10:04:36 AM  
The AFA tried to warn us about these kinds of health effects.
 
2012-10-17 10:16:10 AM  
You oughta know...

AbbeySomeone: Did she he refuse to go down on him in a theatre?

 

/just an observation

Hey. It could have been Celine. Shudder.

Came to post exactly this

/at least I came

So, in the same vein, at my old place, I once made a playlist consisting of only Hadaway's "What is Love?" I then put it on reply, turned the volume down so it was not immediately noticeable, and left for 12 hours.


My roommate was really pissed when I got back, but for some reason, had never thought about rebooting my computer.

Reminds me of the time I worked in the front office of a dance studio. There must have been some musical competition or something because for days on end they would play Peggy Lee's Fever. This culminated to one day where the almost the entire day was spent on this one song. Plus, they would stop it and start it at different points, so it was never the FULL song. At some point, I stopped working and take a break. I was so dizzy I could barely read any paper work and was entirely too close to hurting something.
I will forever refuse to listen to that song ever again.
 
2012-10-17 11:19:23 AM  
"Partner"? Is this a Western or something?
 
2012-10-17 11:27:50 AM  
Isn't it ironic that subby didn't use an ironic tag?
 
2012-10-17 11:50:02 AM  

trappedspirit: "Partner"? Is this a Western or something?



In a "Brokeback" sort of way, yes.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Now he'll get raaaaaaAAAAAAAped in his prison cell


Bravo, you've now forever changed how I'll hear that song for the rest of my life.

/still laughing
 
2012-10-17 12:18:52 PM  
gays HATE alanis cause it makes them want to have sex with the opposite sex
 
2012-10-17 12:26:28 PM  
Walker: Isn't it ironic? Don't cha think?

Ironic tag is always appropriate if Alanis is in the headline even if it would otherwise not be.
 
2012-10-17 12:45:12 PM  
Use of deadly force would have been completely justified.
 
2012-10-17 01:39:31 PM  
Why are they posting the name of the victim? Seems pretty gay to me.
 
2012-10-17 01:45:57 PM  
It's like play-ee-aaaaaates smacking you in the face...
 
2012-10-17 02:30:26 PM  

Walker: Isn't it ironic? Don't cha think?


And we're done.

You don't usually see a lesbian couple going off half cocked, period.

No problem. Charge them both with disorderly conduct.

If this had happened in England, they could both have been slapped with an ASBO (Anti-social Behaviour Order). I'm not a fan of ASBOs because they are 1) petit bourgeois fascism and 2) collected like Boy Scout Badges by the juvenile and deliquent, but in cases like this, it would be nice to have something, even a magazine, to slap the offenders with.

Reminds me of a legal anecdote. An attorney in Texas asked the judge if she could whack her opponent with his brief. The judge ruled that how she employed the brief was legally her business, so she did with the permission of the Court. Cool story, brother attorney.
