Rule 5 Sunday

Rule 5 Sunday, “Forget The World” edition. Boobquake jiggled the blogosphere most pleasantly, offering mounds of opportunity for more serious bloggers to get something off their chests.

  • The Smoking Gun had some good background on the grunts going ga-ga. Some wacky ROE in that theater.
  • Irish Cicero treated us to some Ava Gardner.
  • The Daley Gator was totally funded for last Sunday, but the job wasn’t there. I had seen a “Made in Bulungi” stamp on the job. But we shall overcome these technical difficulties:
  • Kathryn Jean Lopez mentioned Janine Turner, who is well worth mentioning.
  • The Manolo had some funk Paris Hilton threads.
  • American Power exercised that exceptionally American capacity to set aside contempt for left-wing idiocy and enjoy a great band in spite of itself, reporting on some babe-age from the Eagles at Honda Center. Douglas does absolutely incredible things in the name of Rule 5. He also brings a clip of Katy Perry’s Rolling Stone shoot. He also had an Erin Andrews update, and then called for a Shakira boycott. I thought that we only boycotted people while in the act of opening the mouth and beclowning themselves.
  • POWIP has cut Shakira off completely.
  • TrogloPundit’s new kink appears to be women who wear cookies on their heads in public. It used to be a free country, but I sense some form of tax evasion at work here. The date with Kathleen Turner was going swimmingly, right up to the point where she opened her eyes and realized that his pickup line ‘Wanna see my swamp?’ was meant literally. When departing his fen, she slapped him so hard that, to this day, he still confused by the concept of ‘up’. Click-wench that he is, he hints that he’d drop Danica Patrick for Hayden Panettiere, if the it brings the traffic.
  • HuffPo had Gwyneth and Scarlett dueling in white.
  • Yankee Phil reported on American Idol and Molly Ringwald.


. . .shook a browser near you last week.

  • Little Miss Attila managed to lead the way, while still retaining the right to disapprove of Rule 5 Sunday, one supposes.
  • Jules Crittenden went so far as to comb the Amazon in search of “boobs”. The Amazon, quite rightly upset at the comb work, roughed him up a bit. If you’re in the Boston area, look up Jules at Spaulding. I am making this up as I go.
  • Volokh, too judicious to post anything directly, was kind enough to notice some Vanity Fair contributions.
  • House of Eratosthenes had a 3:23 clip from YouTube.
  • Three Beers Later offered a Denise Milani clip.
  • A Conservative Shemale was non-plussed:

    Personally I think it was unnecessary – If cleavage caused earthquakes then the earth would be shaking whenever Christina Hendricks was in town.

  • Instapundit listened to Reason instead of A Conservative Shemale.
  • Fausta reported on male chest hair, NTTAWWT.
  • American Power featured Kristee Kelley.
  • GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD sports the gear and suggests that Rammstein’s “Amerika” is the appropriate soundtrack. For some reasons, dudes in space suits rocking out on a lunar set is deeply funny to me.
  • St. Angilbert had a fine collage, plus a silly aside about Quebec.

This blog will contribute Taarna from Heavy Metal. Whether or not the bad guy represents the Iranian Cleric in the discussion is left as an exercise for the reader. Because Rule 5 Sunday is all about exercise.

  • Bob Belvedere continues to rock the Rule 5:
  • Dustbury had some footwear that looked like it came from an Alien Sex Fiend concert. And the Zooey fixation has overflowed to sister Emily. Also, what is Mariska Hargitay wearing?
  • The Art of Manliness had some Bear Bryant motivators. My favorite is the second one, Leadership.
  • Your bi-partisan moment comes from Political Insider, who introduces Maryline Blackburn:

    Singer and actress Maryline Blackburn of Smyrna, now a 24-year resident of the state, will announce Thursday that she’ll mount a Democratic challenge to Republican incumbent Rich Golick for his House seat.
    Blackburn was Alaska’s first African-American representative to the Miss America beauty pageant. Palin, the future GOP vice presidential nominee, was a flute player from Wasilla. She was named Miss Congeniality.

  • Proof Positive brings Loretta Young for the vintage fix, and goes Gisele for the contemporary look. And he reveals yet another PETAbyte of hotness.
  • Waxing Erratic has the cute furries and then the cuties.
  • GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD reported on the Norks, but if they all look like that, we’re toast. The appointment of the epicenter of boobquakery to the UN Human Rights Council brought out some more cuties. To more cuties and an ice cream cone re-introduce neo-conservativeism.
  • Fishersville Mike took a moment for the fillies, and then sought to highlight the Washington Caiptals cheerleaders, but see my comment for a corrected URL. I still don’t have the attention span for a full game of hockey.
  • Pamela Gellar posted a Sarah Vaughn clip that is worth your time.
  • Paco, cool under fire, sees the Sarah and raises Pamela a Betty Grable.
  • Shreveport went green for the prom. Good work, Son of Pat!
  • Styleite features Martha Stewart, before the descent into sordid depths of crone-y capitalism.
  • Jeffords has an important announcement:

    May will feature a month long countdown of the 31 hottest female celebrities. Lucky me, the first of the month happens to fall on the same day I post my weekly entry [Susanna Hoffs] for The Other McCain’s Rule 5 Sunday. nice how that works out, no?

    So, is this a daily or weekly feature? Or does it only show up on days whose names end in ‘y’?

  • Nation of Cowards featured Jenna Bentley.
  • The Classic Liberal sends Kate Hudson (back)packing to ask if society can be organized like a camping trip.
  • Three Beers Later has a Spurs Cheerleaders clip.
  • Point of a Gun has a Zooey vid from MTV Canada.

Rule 5 Sunday has broken a thousand words this time around. Bodacious.

    Did I say something diapproving about your little Rule 5 Sunday? I don’t know that I disapprove, although the restrictions on who could post cheesecake of whom got confusing to me. (IIRC, homocons can’t post beefcake, but lesbians can still post pretty girls . . . or something like that.)

    You guys rock on with your pinups.
