The Daily Word In Pissing Kate Middleton Off, Dogs Dressed Up As Turkeys And A 6-Year-Old Girl's Skateboarding Posse

By Amelia Olson [ Wed Nov 26 2014 12:14 PM ]
The Daily Word

It’s Wednesday November 26th and this rude ass storm is ruining Thanksgiving!

Meanwhile in Southern California, three six-year-old girls are cooler than we will ever be, and skateboard all the damn time.

In Pakistan, 20-year-old Aansoo Kohli teaches 150 children in a shed, isn’t paid for the job, and is finishing her Bachelors Degree,

And if you’re American and you're reading this from your tent outside Best Buy while you wait for a 99 cent TV, joke's on you! You’re doing it wrong!

A local “cafeteria angel” is paying off student lunch debts at elementary schools anonymously and depositing money into needy families' bank accounts, because apparently some people care about other people?

And while the rest of us are consuming questionable amounts of alcohol this “holiday” season and arguing with our racist in-laws, these dogs are all that really matter this Thanksgiving.

Americans can't do anything right. We can’t even dress ourselves! Which really pisses Kate Midleton off. C'mon, you guys! Get it together!

Merry happy Thanksgiving, or whatever. Don’t drink and drive.

Celebrate Bisexuality Day

By Julian Wolf [ Thu Sep 23 2010 4:20 AM ]

Just when you thought International Talk Like a Pirate Day was on the cutting edge of September's holidays, Celebrate Bisexuality Day is in our midst.

Celebrate Bisexuality Day has been official since 1999. To celebrate, go watch this fun 90s Blur video, support your friends who are out of the closet, educate yourself about the local community, go get a date and please avoid drunkenly making out with members of the same sex just because your significant other thinks it's hot. That's usually less celebratory and more exploitative, unless of course, you explain the situation to the third party in advance. (You can always ask for advice at Carnal Conundrums how to go about that politely.)

Let your Bi Flag fly as this part of our diverse community is celebrated around the world.

Re-Gifting Gone Bad

By Marisa Demarco [ Wed Dec 23 2009 11:51 AM ]

This lady opens a wine storage unit to find narsty rotting cheese and sausage meant for the original recipient years ago.

One in five Americans re-gift.

Here’s how to do it right. Here are even more rules.

The green re-gift.

Really? Seinfeld invented the word “re-gift.”

Actually, why do we “gift” at all?

What’s the worst re-gift you ever got?
