Snow, Snooki, ’30 Seconds’ and more!


Brian Golden

And … it’s snowing. Not that we should complain or anything, considering we’ve had a fairly mild winter (if you want to call it that) so far this year. Which is not to say I’m looking forward to shoveling come 4 p.m. Then again, I could probably use the exercise (all this sitting-at-a-desk-writing-for-a-living really tends to add on the pounds).

Regardless, here’s my Interesting and/or Idiotic news story for the day (thankfully, it’s not one of mine) … Is Snooki pregnant?
Let’s see … where to begin (and end) with this one? How about … who cares? And here’s my personal checklist when it comes to all things ‘Jersey Shore’ related … a) could care less about Snooki? Check. b) never seen an episode (let alone five minutes) of Jersey Shore? Check. c) Thinks that cast members of Jersey Shore should not be allowed to procreate? Check.

And that about sums that one up.

On to bigger and better things, how about a Best (most ignorant) ‘30 Seconds’ Post of the Day!
Said Man from South New Berlin, “We are not saying Obama is a Muslim. We are saying that he is sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim causes.”

Don’t (and I repeat) … don’t get me started. What is wrong with some people? Saying Obama is sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood is like saying I have a top secret, Swiss Bank account that tops out at … oh, let’s say $2.56 million. It just isn’t so.

And now, last but not least, my quote of the day … “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” – Clint Eastwood

Don’t ask me why, but that one always makes me laugh. Thanks, Mr. Eastwood.
