Re: Miscellaneous/Amusing News Items

I hope it is.

Think I was reading an article on the concourse or something related to one of the gawker sites and they had a bunch of screenshots of posts on stormfront... and that shit is so ridiculous I still can't believe it's real.

Is it a common term in the US? It would be considered pretty tactless here, and even more so I would presume, in Ireland.

Re: Miscellaneous/Amusing News Items

Mind you, South Africans living in Australia still get horrified when we start talking about kaffir lime trees, so I guess it's the same sort of thing.

This 2 year old from Australia just got photobombed by a rather large eastern brown snake. She's a very lucky little girl - browns are known to be aggressive and territorial and are the second deadliest snake in the world.

I'd never heard of it before, but I figured they were something to do with cocktails, in the same style as a Jager-bomb.

On the upside, as a satire on pop culture, celebrity worship and social media driven political protest like #theresistance, it's actually kind of brilliant. "Woke Kendall Jenner" is a South Park-worthy idea. Probably a pretty dumb way to sell cola though.

true - and agreed that its way dumb

apparently its basically lifted completely wholesale from an old chemical brothers video - but without the irony

pepsi just cant seem to catch a break - betwen mj catching fire and madonna being 'controversial' with her commercial - maybe just stick to rainbows and unicorns

lol, is that right? I'll have to check out the original. Somewhere, Jagger and Atticus from Pepsi's creative department are crying into their brunch-time cocktails and considering another line of work.....

Thanks for posting. Yep, there are certainly major similarities. Makes the Pepsi ad seem even more clueless.
