No shit Trumpballs

Well, duh

Note - Place of Birth is Honolulu and not Hades

Barack Obama has released details of his birth, namely his full birth certificate. This was necessary given continued speculation in America that he was not born in the US (the birthers believed he was born in Kenya, or Hell – really) or that, in the words of thunderdouche Donald Trump, “there’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like”.

Trump is considering standing for the presidency in 2012. While he would have to defeat the ever-popular Sarah Palin for the Republican Party nomination, it’s not an impossibility that he could be president. After all, America loves the rich white man.

The problem is that neither Trump or Palin have any experience whatsoever, and seem to think that the size of ego and not intellect qualifies one for the White House. Seriously, Trump’s head is so big his hairpiece is now the second man made object visible from space. Watch this:

He’s “really honoured and really proud”. You got a man to casually waft a piece of paper, Trump. Woo fucking hoo. I really hope Obama gets his shit together and batters Palinosaur/Trumpballs to secure a second term. The thought of either of them with their finger on the button really does scare the pants off of me.

Phone hacking

Didn’t have Hugh Grant down as a post-modern genius. Then this emerged, and everything changed. Now there is a parody video to go along with it, and I think Mr. Grant is the bomb (incidentally, he’s bloody good in About A Boy too). Congrats:

Calm down dear

David Cameron is in a bit of hot water after telling a female MP to “calm down, dear”, a la Michael Winner. That’s funny! Where he got that reference from, I have no idea – he’s about 5 years too late. However, it’s entertaining, brightens up parliament and has given me an idea. Themed PMQs. Just think. Sombrero day. Talk like a robot day. Rubbish insults from old commercials day.

It would certainly distract from the dreary AV debate. I’m voting No. It’s a typical leftie idea, that no-one should lose and if you do you should have a chance not to. The Labour idea of opening up university to everyone, including those wishing to study Bedspreads and Flower Arranging, has resulted in monster fees to support the overstretched system. Now those same ideals are being applied to our democracy, and I don’t think it will work. Sorry.

Give over

One fuck a game?

Pretty tame swearing

Wayne Rooney is going to get a ban for swearing down a camera in Manchester United’s 4-2 victory against West Ham. The ban hasn’t been ratified yet, but you can bet your bottom dollar one will be the result of his FA charge. His match-winning, hattrick-scoring performance has been forgotten, as he has been roundly vilified for his actions.

Despite promptly apologising after the game (and I can understand his heat of the moment argument – I’ve played football and said some truly disgusting things, that I’m not proud of, and would wholeheartedly recant after the final whistle), the age old bullshit about role models and what about the children? has been rolled out. Now, if you want to give your kids a role model who has worked tremendously hard to exploit a talent to its fullest potential, Wayne Rooney is perfect. If you’re looking for someone whom your children can look up to for virtuous guidance, he ain’t your man. You couldn’t find anyone more morally bankrupt.

But this rubbish about his responsibilities? Behave. The only responsibility here is with parents to teach their children right and wrong. If you don’t want your kids to see or hear swearing, then don’t left them watch football. It doesn’t have to be spat down a camera – I have lip-read the A to Z of a profanisaurus whilst watching the Premier League.

I can guarantee those children know those words anyway. Rooney said fuck twice – that is par for the course daily in playgrounds across the country. That’s not Rooney’s fault, it’s an inherent issue with our society.

He’s a victim of circumstance as much as anything. 20 years ago, there would never have been a cameraman, free to walk pitchside to get the best shots. That level of coverage and scrutiny is what the fans want, and then out come the moaners when a young man swears at work. If you can find me a 25 year old male who doesn’t swear at work, I’ll show you a liar.

At the end of the day, he was in the wrong. But get off the high horse. He’s human. We say naughty words, and do naughty things. And you’re a fucking idiot if this shocks you. And if that offends you, then you’re a daft fucking idiot to boot.

Hitler house

I’m sure this has probably seen by everyone, but it’s brilliant:

Adolf Hitler - A Swansea House

And as an extra treat – Elvis beetle:

Guess where I’m going this weekend?

Edinburgh. Good guess. I’m well excited, and if anyone has any boss ideas for places to go/see, let me know. Cheers kids.
