Rule 5 Sunday: Farewell To The Slave Princess

— compiled by Wombat-socho This isn’t exactly, news, but as most of us are aware, the canny marketing pros at Disney have put the kibosh on products featuring Princess Leia in her slave costume, allegedly to quiet the whines of feminists, but surely to increase demand when they reintroduce them some years down the line. […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Tigers On Top

— compiled by Wombat-socho One must give credit where credit is due, and unfortunately this season it’s Clemson and not Alabama atop the BCS standings. So, preferring real women to anime, our appetizer this week is one of the Clemson Tigers cheerleading squad. As usual, the links that follow are often to pictures of young […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Them Ain’t Turkeys, Them Are Ducks

— compiled by Wombat-socho As promised, the post-Thanksgiving Rule 5 Sunday contains no turkeys (well, none that I know of, though EBL may have tucked a few mutants into her links) but instead a fine collection of pulchritudinous Ducks, namely the young ladies of the University of Oregon’s cheerleading squad. As usual, many of the […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Post-Veterans Day Recovery Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the way Las Vegas celebrates Veterans Day. Just about every fast casual restaurant in town has some kind of free food to offer, and a lot of them start handing it out on Monday. It’s not just the Red Robins and Applebees […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Just What It Says On The Label

— compiled by Wombat-socho With the coming of cool weather to Las Vegas, one’s thoughts naturally turn to hot & spicy foods – and, of course, hot and spicy women. What better example than Kate Upton, who in a classic example of truth in advertising, went to a Halloween party dressed as a bottle of […]

Rule 5 Sunday: World Patriarchy Day Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho Sometimes it’s hard to think of a post title for these weekend linkagery posts, but other times one just seems to drop into your lap. Apparently not content with the existing Annoy A Feminist Week, or perhaps wanting to spread the love around (so to speak), Milo Yiannopoulos has declared his […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Columbus Day Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho It’s that time of year again, when all manner of malcontents are coming out of the woodwork and complaining about the poor administrative skills and politically incorrect conduct of the Admiral of the Ocean Sea, going so far as to call for his day being renamed Indigenous Persons Day, or some […]
