Friday Around the Water Cooler

My gosh, hasn't it been such a slow week in the lame-stream news....JUST KIDDING!!!  Just when you think it can't get any weirder out there, it does.  I do find it pretty interesting that our news programming today very much resembles the children's game Hot, Warm, Cold. 

Any tidbit of a story starts cold, then as it gets a  little more salacious, dramatic, sexual and perverted the story starts getting warmer, then as  the big "scandals are exposed" the news becomes HOT, HOT, HOT. While it is in the "hot" category, every channel will be blabbing on and on all day about that one story. Of course after a couple of weeks go by,  most stories  become cold, colder off the news grid.  For example in the not-so-distant past  there was the Hot, Warm, Cold story of  Charlie Sheen's antics.  At least for now Charlie seems to be cold, colder, freezing cold. 

Why?  Because he was quickly replaced by Hot stories such as this week's Anthony Weiner's Wienergate scandal.  Didn't you just see this story going from warm to "OH MY Freakin'.... Hot.

This story started off somewhat hard to believe (hard probably not the best word to use) but just kept getting more and more unbelievable.  Last week, Anthony is saying his Twitter account had been  hacked to this week admitting to at least six women he has been having  inappropriate  exchanges with on social network sights.  But to really boost him into the HOT topic category, we now get to see his "naked business" in all it's glory (no..not so much) on the Internet.  That certainly takes those wiener jokes up a notch. 

So the debate is on.  Should he resign?? Can he effectively do his job now that the world is discussing his private parts.  (well, technically, no longer, not even close to being private)  Does it soften your stance, knowing that his wife is expecting their first baby?

Anthony has enlisted the help of Bill Clinton to support him during this stressful time.  This morning on NBC Bill Clinton was quoted saying,  he is really disappointed in Anthony's behavior.  All I can say, is if you have gone so far down  the ladder of perversion as to have even disappointed Bill Clinton, you must be one sick puppy.

Another interesting quote by Luke Russart this morning is that "aids are saying that resignation is not where Weiner's head is at".  Isn't that the best quote you have ever heard in relationship to this story."

So, my blogee readers, just hold out hope that in any moment some new HOT story will be "breaking news" and Weinergate will go cold, colder.....and disappear.

Another story that I found somewhat interesting this week....

Reece Witherspoon received an MTV Generation Award this week.  During her acceptance speech she said that she thinks that all the actresses that have appeared in sex tapes and nude photographs, should be ashamed of themselves.

"I get it girls, that it's cool to be a bad girl." But it is possible to make it in Hollywood without doing a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape you were embarrassed and you hid under your bed.  And if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people, hide your face!  For all the girls out there, it's totally possible to be a good girl.  I'm going to try to make it cool."

The thing I found interesting about this is I heard about it for the first time from a clip of Kathy Lee Gifford of the Today Show gushing about how wonderful she thought Reece's sentiments were and how true it is BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.   Her first guests for the day....which she introduced as two of the most fun friends she has...she repeated how fun they are....the Kardashian sisters Kourtney and Kloe.  Are we hearing this??? The Kar-trash-ian sex pot sisters are so much fun and such good friends. 

OK, the last big newsworthy story that I will share for the day is....

Elaine Davidson, of Edinburgh, Scotland married Douglas Watson yesterday.  Brazilian born Miss Davidson, 46,  holds the Guinness book of  World Records for the most piercings.  With almost 7000 piercings and tattoos, her older groom said he thought she looked astonishing. 

Really??? The groom describes her as astonishing.
I have a couple of descriptive words that come to mind.
AND I am not overly convinced he is looking at her with a lovey-dovey kind of look.

So, for all of you that are pining away at not having a lovely bride that looks like this perhaps, you are only around 6500 piercings away from getting "the look".

A song about Friday Nights

The Good for the Day...probably just a matter of time before the Weiner story goes cold.

The Bad for the Day....Bad choices

The Weird for the Day...7000 piercings

I predict that the Weiner story will go limp and disappear. I hope he resigns so as not to see his face on TV again so's have to relive the whole Weiner in ones mind.

I think we need a rest from the sordid for awhile...btw had you noticed that both of Weiners heads bear likeness of each other? Kind of like man and his Dog after both have spent much time together.

Say good-bye to The Dorks dork.
Aloha FSSF!

Good pun w/limp. I agree the media wears us out on what could be an interesting story until they beat you over the head with it for a week or so. I suspect they will keep this up though until some other freak of nature gives them some sensationalized news to use.
