Go read Deus Ex Malcontent

If you aren’t reading this site every day, Here is some of what you are missing. The guy who writes it is the guy who was a producer on CNN who got fired for blogging. Then the guy who fired him got fired.

Funny shit. Some Samples:

Save the Date
Match.com is now offering six free months of service to any subscriber who hasn’t found a compatible partner within an allotted time period. This is worthless; they should pay for someone to come to your house and perform oral sex on you.

Smelling Assaults
"Secret" anti-perspirant/deodorant is advertising a "clinical strength formula" version of its product. If you feel that you require this level of wetness and odor protection, please do the world a favor and don’t ever leave your fucking house.

Fortune Favors the Fool
Supposedly, one of the most popular shows on Iraqi TV right now features a fortune teller who claims to be able to predict the future of those who call in. Exactly how hard can this be? "Tomorrow, you’re gonna be blown to pieces — thanks for calling."

Maternity War
Does every woman in America have a long-running dysfunctional relationship with her mother? If not, for Christ’s sake, why do all chick-flicks not falling into the "implausibly fairy-taleish romantic comedy" category seem to deal with adult women coming to terms with the latent resentment of their mothers for the lifetime of insecurity the elders instilled in the younger? There are millions of men out there still nursing physical and mental scars inflicted upon them by their fathers — you don’t see them bitching about it and longing to revisit the trauma while curled up on the couch with a box of Kleenex.
Buck up ladies.
