Stolen Bernies Speak!

image

By now we’re all familiar with the saga of the Bernie Brewer gnomes well, the story has taken a new twist. It appears at least one of the purloined plastic mascots has both a cell phone and a Twitter account and has been communicating with the outside world. A few recent tweets:

“low on air... in trunk... can't breathe. Wait, we have no lungs, okay, FALSE ALARM”

“is this the rapture!? who knew Heaven was the trunk of a 97 Honda Civic?”

“SEAL TEAM 6, you are our only hope!”

O Bernie, Where Art Thou?

image                                                  The Milwaukee Brewers ran a “Where’s Bernie?” promotion that involved placing some 1,400 plastic Bernie Brewer lawn gnomes in public parks for fans to find. Can you guess what happened? Here’s a hint:
image
Yes, people were “sneaking” into parks and snagging all of the plastic gnomes before the promo officially started and putting them on eBay. A few of the bolder “collectors” were following Brewers’ employees around picking the gnomes up as soon as they were set down. A few of the hoarded gnomes were pulling bids of $200+ on eBay despite the fact that the Brewers were selling them at Miller Park for ~$50. One woman in particular claimed on her Twitter feed to have snagged dozens. Of course judging by this Facebook page she probably should have kept her mouth shut.
Stay classy Milwaukee!

Oh, This Is Too Good…

image

 

Where to begin…a Florida computer repair company, run by a convicted sex offender, called “CP Distributor” (nice name BTW) ran an ad in a local coupon book that featured internet pedophile mascot “Pedobear”.

image

The best part is that the use of Pedobear was supposedly unintentional on the part of the advertising company. Some kind of karmic coincidence perhaps? Full story from The Smoking Gun HERE.

“Go The F**K To Sleep” A Bestselling Children’s Book – For Parents.

This book isn’t out yet but it hit number #1 on Amazon on the strength of pre-orders alone. Just goes to show what a pirated PDF can do for sales… A sample:
“The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear.
Please go the fuck to sleep.”

Herman Cain Enters 2012 Presidential Race, America Fails to Notice.

To resounding chants of “Who the hell are you?” Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and current radio talk show host Herman Cain threw his hat into the ring for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. Who is Herman Cain? He’s Alan Keyes with even less chance of winning. via [USA Today]

What Time Is The Rapture?

So, is the Rapture at 6:00 Central Time? Mountain? Greenwich Mean Time? I’m at GMT –6 so this should be starting soon. The windows are boarded up and the guns are loaded and I’m all set to do some serious looting. Update: I’m start to think this isn’t going to happen, that or everyone I know is a horrible sinner. Oh, wait…

Sensory Friendly Films

image 

For those of you who have children with Autism or other developmental disabilities AMC Theatres screens a “Sensory Friendly Film” once a month. An SFF is a kids movie shown with the volume lowered, the lights left up a bit and the usual rules regarding being noisy and/or disruptive are not enforced. It’s a pretty cool, stress free to watch a movie on the big screen with a special needs child. Next up is Kung Fu Panda 2 on June 4th.

 

image

All movies are screened @ 10:00 am local time.

Former Charlie Sheen Goddess and “star” of 170+ adult films Rachel “Bree Olson” Oberlin is going to pose for Playboy. Will anyone actually buy this magazine? I mean what could a woman who counts the 2008 AVN Award - Best Anal Sex Scene among her many achievements possibly have left for Hef?

Lenovo ThinkPad X1

image

 

Thin + light + RollCage + Gorilla Glass screen + awesome ThinkPad backlit (and spill resistant) keyboard = Want. Of course @ $1400 for the i5 and the top end i7 model running about $1800 (+ $150 for the extended battery “slice”) I’m thinking that unless my employer is going to buy one for me I’ll be going without.
