    It’s especially bad when Friday the 13th falls on Friday.
    +1000 for the Pogo reference, though. 🙂

    I think the Hannah Davis cover is the DEFINITION of sexy: Sure, she’s one centimeter away from showing vagina…but she didn’t actually show it, did she?
    It’s all in the presentation, the SUGGESTION of something. This is the entire reason we have lingerie.

    P.S. Whatever her thoughts on feminism are, that’s just blather. Nobody cares.

    FBI Chief: “Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist”

    Nobody is “racist.” Something is either true or it’s not true.

    I believe that it’s a direct quote from a song in “Avenue Q,” the same musical that brought us such instant classics as “The Internet Is for Porn.”
