This Weekend's Poll Winner

Here's an old promo from "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia." this weekend's poll winner. Awesome show, and Ben's and my personal favorite to win. Good work, team.

Thank You Denmark!

In the rich history of this blog, which was conceived about a year and a half ago, we have strived to reach all fan bases, and people of all different interests. What we didn't expect was to reach different countries. So far, the blog has been viewed in the US, Canada, Germany, the UK, Russia, Turks and Caicos Islands, and China.

But the most surprising thus far, has been almost hitting the century mark in the wonderful country of Denmark.

If you're down to visit our bronze medal blogviewing country, check this site out. But if not, just enjoy some of the Danish scenery.

This Is Not Okay

Look, I know this is absolutely ridiculous, but tell me if you think this is the least bit okay. Shock therapy through the RAFTERS, dude's just running out with trays full of pickles.

Did anyone else notice this girl is only 18? As if she's not self-conscious enough, she's gotta deal with being on Maury, the most popular nationally televised show ever, with mass amounts of pickles chasing her up the stairs into the crowd, and going so far as to steal one of her shoes. None of this is okay, but I hope she learned something from this: that she is a ridiculous person, and needs to settle herself down.

Sox On Life Support

After losing a 3 game series, 2-1 to Tampa, the sox are now 6 and a half games out of first place, going into the final month of the season. You never know when a team is going to catch fire, or when a team is going to go completely cold, but its looking like it's going to get chilly early in September.

The bats have been doing there job most of the time, but its the pitching that's getting to us. Buchholz is as solid as a brick wall, but Lester has been shaky lately, as has Beckett. Wakefield, covering for Matsuzaka who's out with a back problem, is 4-10, and Lackey will give plenty of innings, but make it tough on the offense to keep pace.

Its going to be a rough final month, with the Sox facing the Yankees 6 times, and the Rays 3 more times. Is it doable? Hell yes. I do think it's going to be nearly impossible to pull off, but like I said, you never know what a team is capable of, for better or worse, over a couple series in a row. A lot of baseball's top-notch analysts were down on the Rays early, and I don't know if they'll be able to hold it together. Ride or die, Sox Nation.

Is There Anything More Badass

This guy is a straight up G, not taking any shit from the umps what so ever. Like I said before if I'm going out I'm going out in style and this is exactly what Gary Robinson does here. Kicking dirt around left and right then tossing a karate kick towards the ump to display his athleticism. After that I thought it was all she wrote but I forgot this is Gary Robinson and the god damn State College Spikes, shits bigger than the Catalina Wine Mixer! First base has got to go and thats exactly what happens, then in the most badass move of the 21st century this guy signs the base and gives it to little johnny hammersticks in the crowd. Unbelievable!

I need to somehow incorporate this into my everyday life, maybe start arguing prices at the super market and then walking to the cold cuts and signing a turkey and handing it to a single mother, fuck I dont know we'll figure something out.

Did That Just Happen?

Holy shit the chances of this happening are a trillion to one. That must be James fucking Bond driving that beat up POS.

Every Astroid Ever Discovered Since 1980

WHAT!! I'm freaking out a little bit over here does that look like an eyeball to anyone else, perhaps the eyeball of something divine, is this inception?! I really don't understand this fully though is earth going to get hit by an asteroid? Some seriously crazy stuff going on in our solar system I think someone needs to regulate.

Check out the video though it is pretty sweet to watch with that nice ambience.

Westboro Baptist Church Sucks

Listen I'm all for what this dude in the truck does because these Westboro Baptist Fucks are the shittiest of the shittiest. But come on man if your going for it go all out that one pepper spray seemed pretty weak. It appeared that they didnt even realize what was going on no one moved for a good 10 seconds. If it was me I would of had my homies in the back of the truck blasting them with squirt guns filled with skunk semen or something. Dont ask how I would acquire said semen, but I know some people who know some midgets who know a family of skunks that own them a favor, one of those deals.

Regardless if there is anything I learned this summer while fighting Johnny law its that this is something they would at least give you a minute head start to get away. What would you have done to these bastards?

FYI they were protesting in front of a marines funeral. Who the fuck does that.

Weekender's Top iPod Jams

Since Ben usually does some of the heavier stuff, I thought I'd throw down some indie and acoustic and whatever else comes to mind.

Just heard this song the other day, haven't even heard the real version, but the acoustic version is amazing. So simple, amazing melody, especially during the chorus.

Next song is one I can't get out of my head, by a pretty solid band, The New Pornographers. They have an awesome sound, with some real good songs mixed in, this being one of them.

For the country fans out there, I've been big into The Band Perry lately, and I'm all about the simplicity of this song, just a good listen.

One, fun band called 'fun.' Two, music video involved a mob of girls running around, so its gold.

Chain E-Mail: Guy Wants To Renew Gym Membership

I almost completely forgot about this guy, but came across some of his letters tonight. The first time I read this, I was sitting at a desk in a cubicle at the insurance company I worked at for 3 summers...nearly passed out trying to hold my laughter in. Enjoy.

Dear David

This is a friendly reminder to let you know your gym membership expired last week. Your membership is important to us and we would like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation by offering you a 20% discount on your membership renewal. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

All the best, Jeff Peters

Dear Jeff,

Thankyou for your friendly reminder and the kind offer to reduce my membership by twenty percent. I own a calculator but I could not work out how to do percentages on it so have estimated that I save around $372.10 off the normal price of $420.00 - Please confirm that this is correct and I will renew my membership immediately.

Also, do I get a Fitness First sports bag with towel and drinking bottle included in the price? I own my own legwarmers and headband.

Regards, David.

Hello David

How did you come to that amount? Our half year membership fees are actually $460 but with the 20% discount as an existing member your renewing membership fee would be only $368 for the six months saving you almost $100 off the normal price. We are not Fitness First so do not have those bags.

Dear Jeff

By the power of Greyskull that is a lot of money but I admit to being in desperate need of increasing my body strength. My ten year old child often turns the taps off in the bathroom very tightly and I have to go several days without washing.

I feel bad constantly having to ask the lady from next door to come over and loosen them for me, what with her arthritis and limited wheelchair access to my apartment. To be honest, I originally joined your gym with full intentions of attending every few days but after waiting in vain for someone to offer me steroids, I began to suspect this was not going to happen and the realisation that I may have to exercise instead was, quite frankly, horrifying.

My aversion to work, along with the fact one of your employees, Justin, was rather rude, telling me to 'lift this', ''push that' dulled my initial enthusiasm of becoming muscular and I stopped attending.

Hello David

Not sure how to take your email, nobody here would offer you steroids, it is illegal and none of our staff would do this. Justin is one of our most experienced trainers and if you found him rude while he was trying to be helpful and just doing his job then there are plenty of other gyms you could look at joining instead.

Dear Jeff

Yes, I have noticed that there are many gyms in my area. I assume the low qualification requirements of fitness trainers means that there is an over supply of these buffed but essentially otherwise purposeless professionals.

I knew a guy in high school who couldn't talk very well and collected sticks, he used to call the teacher 'mum' and during recess we would give him money to dance. Then sell him sticks to get our money back.

He went on to become a fitness instructor so I view gyms as kind of like those factories that provide a community service by employing people with down syndrome to lick stamps and pack boxes. Except with more Spandex obviously.

Dear Jeff

I was, at first, quite surprised at your response; one minute you are inviting me to renew my membership and asking me for money, the next insulting me. After doing a little research however, I have learnt that mood swings are an expected side effect of steroid abuse.

As another side effect is a reduction in the size of your p#$%, this gives you understandable cause to be an angry person. I have also learnt that Spandex contains carcinogenic properties so this does not bode well for yourself and your shiny friends.

If I woke up one morning and my p#$% was a quarter of the size I would probably take my anger out on those around me as well.

There are probably support groups or websites that could help you manage your problem more effectively and picture based books available on the subject for people with limited reading skills. When I am angry I like to Listen to music by Linkin Park. The added angst and desire to cut myself works similarly to the way firefighters fight forest fires by burning off sections, effectively canceling each other out and I find myself at peace.

I understand that you guys usually listen to Pet Shop Boys or Frankie Goes to Hollywood so this may be worth a try.

You Can Dance If You Want To

I was completely lost on this video. I'm not gonna knock the dance moves though, because there have been times when I've resorted to THE FORK, IN THE GARRRRBAGE DISPOSAL! That's life, though, right?

Plans For Expansion

No, this has nothing to do with the greatest computer game of all time. But we figure we're doing pretty good here at The Weekend, and we're ready to drop the ".blogspot" and get ourselves a domain name and everything.

Keep an eye out for some changes around the blog. Trust us, things are only going to get better. If you want to know more about random stuff we're doing in our daily lives, because people seem to be really into that sort of thing, then we just set up a Twitter for you.


We'll keep you guys updated, and hopefully you'll follow us even further down the road.

The Best Advice You'll Ever Get

Dear Impressionable Minds,

As the one year anniversary of my graduation has come and gone and I return to the hallowed halls of academia (courtesy of a redeye flight, 1 layover, and an over-priced plane ticket), I find myself thinking of what specific articles of knowledge I would not be graced with had I not taken the leap in to higher knowledge (and an exciting leap in to debt at a low fixed interest rate.)

Freshman year is an incredible time in a student's life. A year full of ambition, hope, confidence, virginity, and many other things certain to be crushed by mid-terms. These exciting first few weeks offer the opportunity for new friends, budding romances, and experiences of a life time. But before you fill yourself up on too much over-priced cafeteria delights, allow me to share some things that I learned in an effort to save you some time:

*. Take a mental note of your "bros" and "girls" that you'll be heading to a party with this weekend; if you're still hanging out with more than half of them : congratulations. You have defied odds; and other people are probably talking shit about how weird you all are (don't worry, the shit talking holds true for 95% of what I'm about to say. I'm leaving most of it out going forward so that you don't have to feel like I'm as disappointed in you as your parents are for not going their alma mater(s). You wouldve looked like a queer in those colors anyway).

*. That girl down the hall that you think is flirting with you is not. She's using you because she hopes you know an upper-classman who you can convince to buy her a $8 handle of booze. Ps she's probably banging your roommate.

*. Playing (insert game console of choice) everytime you're not in class makes you a loser. Having your door open while you're doing it only makes things worse. Go make yourself a cocktail and study in the library. (What? You never rewarded yourself for studyIng?)

*. Pay attention to how long your laundry cycles last. If you come back and your shits on the ground or on top of the washer: its no ones fault but your own. Just be thankful that it hasn't been urinated on (College kids are fucking disgusting).

*. Don't be afraid to make friends with the cleaning crew that you see in the mornings, you never know when you'll need a favor. They essentially have keys to every door on campus: this can be helpful.

*. If you don't plan on going to grad school, your GPA and major is practically irrelevant once you graduate. "C's get degrees."

These little nuggets of truth can hopefully get you on the path to enlightment. I hope you all take note of this information as it may get you further than the douche bag down the hall who things everyone wants to listen to the same music that he does. Now on the flipside, if you found my suggestions lame and inapplicable: I couldn't care less. I can actually afford to buy Grey Goose; I don't need to run the aforementioned $8 handle through a brita filter to make it taste less like rubbing alcohol.

With that being said, I wish you best of luck in your future endeavors and hope to see you among the ranks of recent college graduates who hate their jobs.

Hugs and kisses,

Uncle Jeff

Lester vs Price

Huge match-up tonight at The Trop. The tied-for-first-place Tampa Bay Rays will host the Sox for 3 game that could be huge for Boston. We trail by 5 and a half games in the AL East, and are in desperate need of a hot streak. Hell, if we don't start that streak here, we'll be in serious trouble.

Tonight's pitching match-up has the league's top 2 lefties in Jon Lester (13-8) and David Price (15-5) doing battle head-to-head. This could potentially be one of the most important games of the year.

In other news, Dustin Pedroia is walking around with a boot on that injured foot of his, and will know if he needs surgery in a week.

7:10 on NESN, Sox vs Rays.

Go Sox.

Dan Bellino Is A Chump

When Adrian Beltre was struck out by Felix Hernandez, the two friends proceeded to trash talk each other, Beltre telling Hernandez that he got one, but the next time he would take Hernandez deep over the Monster. Home plate umpire Dan Bellino, just called up from Triple-A to umpire in the MLB, had no idea what was going on, and thought the talk was directed at him, so he threw Beltre out of the game.

Beltre, competely stunned, freaked out on Bellino, demanding and explanation, that the moron couldn't give him, because he didn't think it through.

Terry Francona then stormed out of the dugout demanding an explanation, but fellow umpire, Angel Hernandez shielded Pellino from Tito.

"He's protecting the young umpire. I guess they have their sort of code or whatever, like we do," said Francona. "I guess I figure if a guy's old enough to throw you out, he's old enough to get yelled at. I just wanted an explanation."

Apparently age has nothing to do with maturity. The call was made without thinking, and Pellino had no answer for why he came to such a quick decision. He was clearly just nervous and that's all he could do to get himself out. Either way, get this clown out of here, its bad enough with the umpires the MLB already has.

Southern Giant

Now I followed this story pretty well but I still cant figure out the part about why she had to drop out of school. Was it really cause she couldn't fit on the bus because that sounds like some weak shit to me, buses are huge people she clearly just wants to skip class. Playing off this giant thing to skip out on algebra she is probably wearing stilts. Even if she really is this large why the hell is she not playing basketball and just dunking on hoochies. Her new dream needs to be make it to the WNBA, although those broke bastards probably wont pay much.

You Go, Marvin

God I cant even believe this chick acting like she had something important to say. Listen lady don't interrupt my boy Marvins life story with that rude bull shit "see what I mean". You better mean that M dog is the most bad ass playa on the streets these days just trying to live his life and keep the haters at bay. The audacity of some people these days just amazes me.

What was that little comment Marvin left on like don't matter I'll be dead in 2 years. Damn homie what a way to exit from that speech like if I started saying shit like that after every short convo with people it would really leave them wondering. Like wtf is going on in two years, where did he get that figure and I hope its not true but shit if it is thats fucked up he knows. It really opens a pandora's box of questions I just can't delve into right now.

WHAT!?!? I just noticed that Marvin rolled in squad deep with a homie in the back that is rocking the most boss stache out there. The way he was grilling that chick at the end is unreal, crossed arms and a Medusa stare. This guy needs to be a celebrity body guard for real, damn I wont be able to sleep well tonight.

(If the video freezes I found for some weird reason if I kept wiggling my mouse I could watch her straight through)

Party Hardy

Huffingtonpost: An Oregon State University offensive lineman has been dismissed from the team after police say they found him naked and intoxicated in a stranger's home and had to use stun guns to take him into custody......Thomas refused and instead dropped into a three-point stance like a football player and lunged at the officers, Brewer said. At that point, he said, two officers fired their stun guns.

Fuck it if I'm going out this is the way its going down, naked three point stance lunge at several officers in a strangers home. If that doesn't spell party animal then I'm illiterate. Honestly though how does one end up in a strangers home butt ass naked, and furthermore what do you do if you stumble across this. And I don't understand why this dude was dismissed from his football team for this. I mean to me it seems like he was just practicing up for the big game. It's a display of no fear charging butt naked at two cops just to clear a lane for your RB. I applaud you sir, and if I ever get an NFL team your first on my list of calls.

Wrestler Promo Of The Week + PSA

You know I was mid light of a butt then this came on and I just couldn't go through with smoking it. Sure its cool to do now and it will probably get me mad poon but damnnit 5 or 10 years down the road I dont wanna be gobbling down ciggies like this guy. I mean jesus bro take a chill pill and step away from the 95 cigs in your mouth, nose, ears, and any other cavity on your body.

Really though if I owned my own business just to be a dick I would hire this guy to pop out in the smokers area and give this rant then just apperate back into nothingness. Perfect way to keep my employees staying healthy. Hell maybe I'll have him toss some veggies out too.

Dude Watching TV Actually Calls LPGA Officials To DQ Someone

YahooSports.com - Inkster was disqualified from the Safeway Classic on Saturday afternoon for a rules violation, but that's not the real story. The more interesting element is how she was caught.

First, the story. Inkster was playing well -- just three strokes behind leader Ai Miyazato -- when she hit a traffic jam on the 10th hole of the Pumpkin Ridge course. With a 30-minute wait stretching out before her, she attached a small "doughnut" weight to her nine-iron and swung to stay loose, much like a batter in the on-deck circle.

However, unlike a batter in the on-deck circle, a golfer can't use a weight like that during competition; it's illegal to use a training aid during play. And so Inkster was disqualified once she finished her round.

But here's the kicker: the LPGA found out thanks to a tip from a keen-eyed television viewer. This oh-so-helpful soul called tournament officials, and after consultation with the United States Golf Association, the LPGA decided that Inkster had to go.

First of all, who legitimately watches the LPGA? Not that I have anything against women's golf, I just find golf only enjoyable on like a late Saturday or Sunday of a big men's tournament, when there are about 15 people right at the top of the leaderboard. But apparently, this stooge pays attention to every minute detail of the LPGA, and cares about the integrity of the game so much, that he called officials to tell them to disqualify one of the golfers.

Unreal, sir. I hope that you're happy with yourself. You have amazing eye-sight, and a serious lack of anything better to do with your sad life.

Just Another Day In Japan

What are they feeding those guys over there? It wasn't even a month ago when we saw a catch similar to this go rifling through the Internet. I just don't understand why there are ledges on all of the walls for dudes to just climb on, but hey, its Japan. Kudos to this yahoo, and like the last guy to make a catch like this, enjoy it, because that's a once in a lifetime snag.

And what make this play even more amazing? That's right, the full marching band blaring in the background during the it.

Sox Put A Claim Damon

Now if you're like me, then you're probably wondering what the hell is going on, and why would the Red Sox do this? Hold your horses, because he's not on the team yet. Johnny Damon will have til Wednesday to decide if he wants to come to Boston.

The Detroit Tigers placed Johnny Damon on waivers, and the Red Sox immediately placed a claim on him. The Red Sox' intentions are unclear as to whether they want to keep Damon, or just prevent him from going to another contender like the Rays. The Sox are in need of an outfielder with experience, but a source close to Damon doubts that he'll make a return to Boston.

Some Random Videos To Buy Us Some Time Til The Next Real Blogworthy Post (And Also The Weekend's Longest Title So Far!)

It's a quick video, but that's textbook Hollywood car chase style right there. That's something that can't be taught, you just gotta be born with skillz like that. I saw the headline, and I was thinking it was sarcastic, so, like anybody would, I thought the driver was asian...or just a woman. But lo and behold, shaZAAM, the dude is a professional. It's only 10 seconds, but I can bet you'll spend a few minutes watching it.

Ignoring the fact that that panda could rip a man's face off without breaking a sweat, how cute is this guy? Not only is this a dancing panda, but the video is set to the greatest song of all time. (See Hide Ya Kids...)

I understand ice cream is better with friends. But I've never found it more satisfying to be in the company of elephants or in a hot air balloon. Notice how I'm completely skipping the fact that this ice cream is called Gaytime, because pointing this out and making fun of it would be like beating a dead horse.

I don't care who you are, if you don't enjoy this video, you probably don't have a pulse...or eyes.

Infomercial Of The Week

First of all, if this lady's a doctor, then I must be a blue and orange zebra.

Not our strongest showing for Infomercial of the Week, but what makes this video is the random background images that are thrown up there. Just wait until it's time for lift-off, are you kidding me...? Fortunately for you, this one comes with some candid confessions! These "self-respecting" girls give some time to ExtaMax to share their opinions. What they don't tell us is if their parents loved them enough...

Sweet Lou Retires

There's a lot to be said about class acts in an age where they are hard to come by. Well don't worry, I beat Google to it's job and got you a perfect example: Lou Piniella. Double take eh? Yeah, I said Lou Piniella.

He wasn't planning to pull a LeBron and announce it mid-season but was forced to when some assholes at the NY Daily News leaked it. I can't imagine ol' Lou not getting into the Hall of Fame.

He held a mediocre record at best as a manager flirting with a .518 winning percentage, and 1835 wins as a manager which is good for 14th all time. I don't care what anyone says, anyone that puts up with the BS that MLB is always good for, for about 40 years deserves some recognition. Oh wait, did I forget to mention that he led the Reds to a 1990 World Series win, and was voted 3 times manager of the year?

Sweet Lou managed his Cubs to a 16-5 loss to Atlanta in his final game. He planned on retiring at the end of the season, but is cutting that short due to the continuing weakness of his mother. In Lou's eyes, family always comes first. His mother probably has a better shot of surviving, anyway.

Jay Marrioti Sucks

For any of you who have watched "Around the Horn" on ESPN, or have listened to Ozzie Guillen (well, listened and actually understood amidst the broken english and bleeps,) you know who Jay Marrioti is. The Windy City Douche Bag.

Well, things just got better for Jay. He was arrested at 4:30am Saturday morning on charges of allegedly attacking his girlfriend. I have a hard time believing that, only because why the fuck would any woman date Jay Marrioti?!

The waste of life was being held of $50,000 bail. Domestic abuse will probably lose you a seat next to Woody Paige and Tony Reali there, chief. Just sayin'...

Sox Walk-Off, 5-4 (11)

Jed Lowrie, who was supposed to be the Opening Day starting shortstop, is doing just fine as a backup middle-infielder. Plagued with mononucleosis for most of this season, the road back to the big leagues was tough. But of late, he's been on a pretty good tear.

Matsuzaka and Romero both gave up 4 runs in their respective starts tonight at Fenway, and the relievers kept the offenses at bay until the 11th, when Lowrie went deep into the Sox bullpen.

Rubber match tomorrow from Boston, Clay Buccholz (14-5) against Shaun Marcum (11-6). Go Sox


Manny Ramirez, just activated from the DL with a calf strain, might be headed back East. The Dodgers could potentially decide to put the 38-year-old left fielder on waivers, with Tampa Bay being a frontrunner to place a waiver claim on him. It would be quite the risk for the Rays, as they would have to pay some of his remaining $4 million, and give up some prospects for the slugger.

Given Manny's track record, its a tough call. Ramirez would have to waive his no-trade clause for a deal to go through as well. All of this should play out in the next few days, so stay tuned.


Who does this bull think he is? Bull, you're not Ron Artest, get the hell out of there. Remind me to never go to a bullfight ever again. I went to one in Mexico, huge mistake. It's cool for all of 30 seconds, until they just start stabbing it, and there's blood everywhere. It's like a train wreck, really.

I mean, the ups that bull had though? Could've made the Miami Heat that much better. He just went stir-crazy waiting for his big break, I guess. It happens...


What were you thinking, dude? Bobby Knight's chair incident: completely okay. He threw a chair onto the court with no one within striking distance. This guy? Chair into a huge crowd of people, with the alley-oop off a guy's head 2 feet away from him.

Not okay, but there is one positive thing. To defend that first big guy, several players decided grabbing his face and twisting it was a proper defense. Go back and check it out.

Pedey's Back On The DL

8 days after coming back from the DL with a broken foot, Dustin Pedroia is back down, this time only with soreness. Either way you slice it, he'll be missing at least another 15 games, which puts the Sox without their former-MVP second basemen into the 2nd week of September.

Facing the Blue Jays tonight, Jon Lester will try to chalk up another W as the top two home run hitting teams in baseball square off. The Red Sox are 6 and a half games out of the AL East.

I Miss Hockey

I miss hockey like a pregnant teenage misses her period. Those refs must've felt like rodeo clowns at a rodeo gone horribly wrong. Donald Brashear getting things start...Everyone else getting them finished. That's what hockey is all about. Mark Recchi getting in on the action a few times, gotta love it.

"I like him way more, but he likes him, too." I don't care if Kanye West saved me and my entire family from a burning building surrounded by dragons and spiders, I still wouldn't do this to see him. But oh my god, is it funny! This should've won some award for the biggest twist is radio history!

It's going as great as this bullshit can go right up until, WHAP! Sleeping with her sister! CAN YOU DIG IT?!? I know the video's 9 minutes long, but you need to watch every second. I'm giddy like a damn schoolgirl waiting for the big moment. Enjoy.


Get Real, Bieber

StarPulse.com - Justin Bieber is hoping to make magic with Harry Potter star Emma Watson - the pop singer has invited her to "hang out" with him after one of his concerts.

The 16-year-old chart sensation has a crush on the British actress, insisting he respects her decision to take a break from movies and enroll in college. And the Baby hitmaker has reached out to the 20 year old, urging her to come to one of his shows so they can become acquainted.

He says, "I would love to take her out for dinner. It would be great if she could come to one of my concerts, then we could hang out afterwards. I love the fact she is one of the biggest female movie stars, but has chosen to go back to college. It shows she is really grounded and normal."

Get the hell outta here, Bieber. Go date "iCarly" or something, Watson's way out of your league. You're not going to go to college, and even if you are, it won't be for another two years. She's not going to hang out with you, stop trying to make 13-year-old girls jealous, and give up this charade. What, are you going to take her out to dinner in the car you don't have or can't drive? Is she going to pick you up, choose the restaurant, and then decline your offer to scissor from the passenger seat of her car before your curfew? Get real.


Prized feathers, check. Valuable metals, check. Head dress, check. chest paint, check. Get me two chairs and some flashy spandex and I'm about to slay this go my son dance move. Dancing with the stars needs to get this guy on the show and I'm talking asap. He would bring a whole new element to the game incorporating fancy Native American dress accompanied by killer dance moves. Simply unreal.

North Korea is Gay


Look at this shit, first off North Korea can't even get 100 friends on facebook, although I'm not that surprised they have always kinda been dicks. But still this is facebook people even the biggest douchebags can get at least 100 other douchebag friends. Then come to find out North Korea is interested in Men. Ahhh its all starting to make sense now they have just been acting out because they feel misunderstood. Well N Korea its okay buddy we will accept you just the way you are, just as long as stop being a dick and trying to blow up the world and shit.

Best Phone Call Ever?

There's just so much here I don't know where to begin. first and foremost I'm wondering what transpired earlier in the conversation I feel that there was some vital information we missed leading into this. Or did this dude just break out of normal talk to try and slip in a oh yeah no big deal but "I fucked this girl tonight". Regardless how rude was snookie when she said "I'm listening you stupid ass". I know this guy just cheated on you but come on you couldnt see that coming with that terrible display of phone etiquette.

But how perfect did they time that music a little piano some eery stings and boom the mood is set for whats about to go down. She breaks the news and the music really starts to pick up pace, god just perfect. And come to find out this guy was just totally pulling her chain, hah typical bro move Call up you GF tell her you cheated on her then pull the ol ahahhh gotcha!! Thats where I dont understand snookies reaction I mean he was clearly joking, right? So that barbaric scream there at the end seemed completely unnecessary. Also the whole yelling on the phone and hanging up when he is mid sentence only furthers the point that she doesnt know how to use a phone properly. Do us a favor Snookie go get some manners then call us back.

Seriously though what a guy, its best that they parted ways a man of his comedic genius doesnt deserve that treatment.

Right Or Wrong? You Decide

Huffingtonpost: A growing number of Chinese women -- mostly in their 20s and about to get married -- are opting for a surgical procedure called "hymen restoration," which returns the hymen to its condition before it was ruptured, which typically occurs during first sexual contact but can also happen while playing sports or doing other strenuous activities.

Only in China would something like this catch on. Get over it your hymen has been ruptured don't try and fake recreate a weird plastic hymen down there. How funny is it that hymens can break in strenuous activities. That in itself evokes so many questions; how does that happen, is it painful, do you bleed, is it a casual occurence in the world of women. Do you just approach the situation by saying "ohh shit we got another hymen bust over here" during a soccer game. I had no idea that could happen, guess you learn something everyday.

Madness? 300th Post

At The Weekend, we pride ourselves on bringing you the stories and videos you want to see and hear. We're 300 posts in, and maybe one day we'll perfect that...

Thanks for reading anyway. Thank you to Span, Jackson, Ry Guy, Kyle, Wes and Pat for their posts along the way, and everyone who has given us a video or story to bring to Blog City. Keep reading, and we'll keep writing.

I Don't Know Either

So this is just your typical priest on a skateboard while teaching Sunday School video, right? Dead wrong. Here are some things you may have missed while trying to explain this one to yourself internally.

First thing you think of when you see this priest? Batman, correct. Which then makes me wonder...Batman has that ridiculous-looking motorcycle in 'The Dark Knight,' so how long until he goes Bob Burnquist and starts shredding all over The Riddler?

Secondly, can someone turn the obnoxious laughter off? I understand that this guy looks like he's straight out of Looney Tunes with that back and forth walk he does, but shut the peanut gallery up, the man's talking about Jesus...

And at :34 seconds, who instantly thought, 'oh my god, please tell me he's going to get off'd by a car...' Because if you did, one way ticket to Hell, nice going.

Admittedly, it's a video you can't just watch once. Not only does he have some Otto Rocket skills on that board, but he should be on the fast track to the Vatican if he can spit out some theology while tearing it up like that

I Quit!

Gawker: A wacky British-born Internet entrepreneur who wants to be entertained, and perhaps even promote a website, is offering $1 million for someone to flash Barack Obama, on camera. How is this not a great deal?

I was scanning through Gawker when I came across this article. Finally I realize why I was put on this earth and I'm going to get paid 1 mill just to flash my junk at Obama. I love this guys style I'm always saying that if I had billions of dollars I would do shit just like this. Offer people absurd amounts of money to do something like swim in a pool of pubes for five min. Just off the wall stuff.

Anyways it was nice knowing all you even though I feel our relationship was just starting to blossom I'm sure you will understand. Next stop, the White House!

Fucking Canadians

Gizmodo: Use of penile plethysmography (PPG), which measure your penis for arousal while viewing questionable content, is being ceased by the Canadian government. After being used on kids for 25 years.

PPG testing, almost too perverse to believe it was actually a government-sanctioned procedure, was employed in British Columbia as a means of interrogating child sex offenders. A sensor was strapped to a child's penis, monitoring blood flow while the kid was subjected to images of other nude children, and audio descriptions of rape. Reread that sentence if necessary. The reasoning—if you can even call it that—behind the test was to discern whether a child offender was lying about his or her desires, though we have a feeling this treatment probably created far more sociopaths than it screened. As Boing Boing points out, and as any adolescent can tell you, erections aren't exactly the most objectively predictable phenomenon, refuting entirely the purpose of the test.

What the hell is going on in our northern border!? We are so worried about illegals coming in from Mexico when the real problem lays in the fact the Canadians are strapping dick arousal detectors on people left and right. Then flashing images of nude children and rape scenes, are you kidding me. Why were they strapping this shit to kids dicks anyways that sounds like some perverse child abuse right there.

I got nothing else to say this shit is just straight up outlandish.

Birthday Cake Bobble

Are you serious lady how did your clumsy ass afford those 2 tv's I see in the background, or is that one tv and a mirror. Regardless I could carry that cake 47 times better and I cant afford a tv and a mirror. Any ways what the hell even happened here did she just want to fuck with her baby everything was going smooth until she apparently wanted to spike that cake on the dinner table. Give me a touchdown celebration at least, shit.

Why is that kid crying anyways she probably has no idea what the fuck is even going on. No idea its her birthday, no idea thats her cake, no idea she pooped herself 25 minutes ago. Pfffft get real.

Barstool Stole Another Video


Ben posted this video at about 7:30pm, August 16th, which was yesterday. Just looked on Barstool Sports-Boston, and saw the exact same video posted the 17th, this morning at 9:30am.

All I'm saying, is give us a shout-out or something. Whether its just coincidence, or your interns have somehow stumbled upon our blog and just lifted a few videos, whatever. It's not that hard to plug us.

I Had To Post It

In case people are unsure of what interview Ben was talking about, or if you just haven't seen it in a while, here it is. Joaquin Phoenix on David Letterman.

I've never been a big fan of Letterman, like when he says he doubts Phoenix will be on performing his music like a douche bag. But when he drops the Unabomber line, then with Joaquin asking about his thumb with some outstanding detective skills, its just too much. I couldn't not watch the whole thing. I still have no idea what to make of this, but that's up to you guys in Blog City.

Joaquin Phoenix

I really don't know what to think about this, like I'm going to see it after watching this clip and seeing his rapping career and Letterman interview I have to know if he is crazy. I'm sure its all a scam and will make crazy amounts of money cause everyone wants to know if he really is crazy or not. I almost hope he is crazy, is that bad to say? I mean I hope shit works out for him and all, but still that would be wild to catch that all on film and then have him come back to the non-crazy world.

Basically it breaks down to two things is he the next Andy Kaufman or did this guy really have a mental breakdown. I can't say for sure but how about we get some damn comments going on this site for god sakes. This a forum for discussion or even to just tell me this site blows. So lets go people get into it.

Reporter Dosed With Bug Spray

I gotta give this guy props no hesitation just goes right for the bug spray. That's a man who goes after what he wants in life, plus lets be serious this reporter deserved that shit. Just following them out of the court room trying to make a story out of nothing bug spray is the perfect remedy for this asshole. I may start packing bug spray with me at all times when any one just annoys the shit out of me a couple squirts and whammy problem solved.

Whats with this guy to talking about how he needs to know what that is and might need to go to the hospital. Dont be such a pussy home boy take it like a man this guy clearly isn't packing some serious chemicals in that bottle. Then he is talking about how he needs to be sprayed down by the fireman up the street. Are you serious guy!?! What is your reaction if your that fireman like ummm alright man but its just a little bug spray if anything its going to keep the skeeters away.

Birthday Shout-Out(s)

August 17th was a big day in history, apparently. Happy birthday to all those celebrating their birthdays today, including these men. Cheers.

Take That Eli

Fuck you Eli Manning, and for that matter the entire Giants team. You never should have beat the Patriots and this is just the big man reminding you. How about this play huh? He gets knocked by his own teammate, Brandon Jacobs thinking its a hand off to force a fumble and then gets the snot knocked out of him from behind. I have never seen a dudes head flop back like that and then get a 3 inch gash so easy. Clearly Eli manning is soft and I can't wait for the Pats to destroy him this season. With that type of communication in the huddle Giants fans should be worried.

And yes I know its the Jets that cleaned his clocks but shit I'll take it anyways still feels just as good. Also I know the Giants won the game but what a shitty way for Eli to start the season in their new stadium, thats gotta be a bad omen.

Ice Cream Man Brawl

First and foremost, you're going to want to skip the whole first minute or so. Its just some wannabe news anchor accompanied by shitty camera work. Once you get past that though, things start to get good. Cauliflower ears, jabs, and I'm pretty sure I saw a full nelson in there at the end. Ice cream guys are supposed to be the friendliest bastards in the whole world, but finally that fake facade has been lifted. It is now clear to me that every Ice cream man is clearly selling black tar heroine or some other drug. I mean, just look at the evidence, two guys willing to kick the shit out of each other over what they believe is their 'corner'. Come on now, if that doesn't spell drug dealer then I cant read.

I love how no one does shit about this fight either my assumption is that this is New York just goes to show all those Yankee lovers are clear cut assholes.



Listening to that guy's voice makes me feel like a bitch for not even being able to watch this all the way through without nearly passing out. But hey, I'll keep my feet on the ground for now. I gotta give him props for the sick Darth Maul double backflip he pulls before the chute comes out.


This week's "THIS GUY" is one of the craziest bastards on planet Earth. He has some strange obsession with lighting himself on fire. He's set the record for most people on fire in the same place (17,) and for being on fire the longest without oxygen (2:57.)

Why? Who the hell knows. But whatever helps you sleep at night, man.

In this video, he set the record for distance run while aflame (300 feet) SHATTERING the old record of 200 feet! Get this guy a beer!

It Might Get Loud

Yesterday's game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Washington Nationals at Nationals Park got a little bit messy. This was the first time Arizona had visited Washington since SB 1070, a bill that would grant the authorities full rights to search anyone at any time who they suspect is an illegal immigrant, came to light.

Before the game, protesters carried signs, and hung a banner from a nearby parking garage demanding Bud Selig move the 2011 All-Star game from Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona because of the proposed bill.

During the game, two people ran onto the field from the right field stands and were taken away by police. Next thing you know, another guy is running on the field holding a protest sign, but he was taken out pretty quick. Then, while security was distracted, a giant bed sheet banner, reading "Bud Selig Move All-Star Game No SB 1070 was hung in the batter's eye in centerfield.

Numerous players and coaches around baseball have already expressed their opinions about the matter, with many of them, most notably White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, stating that they will stay clear of all festivities in 2011. Bud Selig sucks at everything, but will cling to interleague play and calling the 2001 All-Star game a tie as to why he's the best commissioner in planet earth's history. Let the games begin.

Help A Brother Out


Literally. My brother just moved out to Austin, Texas to work as a chef and instructor at Silver Whisk Cooking. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, and has been cooking since I can remember.

The link is for an Iron Chef Texas Regional type deal. Since it takes like 10 seconds, everyone should go on there, vote for him, and get him through. All the other people are like students or clowns, so he deserves it way more.

Vote Jason Hardacker. Do it.

Thanks, guys and girls.

Wrestler Promo of the Week

Well, well, well if it isnt the baddest duo in America the slickster and Akheem. Get with the times people "Mooooonnnnneeeeyyyy is just what its all about" and there is a new sheriff and deputy in town now. This gruesome two some will be jiving all the way to the bank with that fresh ass move Akheem was rocking. I'm gonna have to add the right arm wiggle into my repertoire from here on out. When I mix that with the stanky leg and the dougie its game over baby.

Kid Urinates On Grandmothers Back

What the fuck. How does this happen, I know he is your grandson and your not going to hit him after he throws stuff at you and even spits at you. However as soon as he whips it out to piss on me I'm tossing a hay maker right to his little dome piece. Then grandma claims that he was just be 'ordinary'. Sweetheart there is nothing ordinary about what this crazy infant just did.

Then to top it all off the so called 'mentally handicapped' mother just sits through it all watching re-runs of Ricky Lake, unreal.

Saco River, Plan Your Trip Now

So for the 3 of you who have been asking themselves "where the hell has Ben been this past week or so" cool your jets there is an explanation. First off I have been working my ass off on toilet bowl patrol out at a camp just cleaning them babies like no other. You could honestly eat a 3 course meal off any toilet I clean, guaranteed. But the point of this post isn't to dwell on the shit work I do, its to tell you to plan a Saco River trip before the summer slips out of grasp.

That shit was insane. People cracking beers as soon as they wake up, funneling, ripping shots left and right, and a whole other smorgasbord of partying related behavior. Needless to say when I got home today I was inches from death and pooping straight charcol. At one point I swear I was picking fire ash out of my ears and nose and to my recollection I did not pass out in a fire. It's going to take a lot more then a weekend on the Saco to kill me though so from here on out I'm back at it so buckle up and get ready for the ride weekenders its go time!

Kami The HIV Positive Muppet

What the hell! When did this shit happen, Muppets are getting AIDS these days. I mean I knew Oscar the Grouch was a grimy bastard louring the other muppets to his trash can love den but come on this is pushing it. Apparently this is only in the South African version of the show which makes a little more sense. Still though when I turn the tube on I'm trying to relax and forget about the shitty parts of my day not see this 5 year old muppet being all up in my face about AIDS.

How about Billy in this video too that had to be one of the most awkward hugs ever.

Sesame Street Facts.

Bongity Bongity

"Look sir I don't want any thing of this then Whooop I slit your throat". This cat is a loose cannon one second your talking politics next thing you know you got a slit throat and a slew of dangity dangitys flying mach 3 at you. If your not spent after that few head butts out of nothing a polite "sorry sir but I'm going to have to break your leg" and you'll be wishing you never met 'el huapo' (3:20).

In all seriousness though how did his buddies put up with 6 straight minutes of fake punches, choke holds, and grapples. When ever a buddy tries to show me some sort of wild UFC type shit I can only put up with that for about 5 seconds, and thats after 5 minutes of continued asking "Come on bro just let me show you this move right quick". Some one get that guy a gift card to Dennys or something jeesh its the least we can do.

I love the scene switch to from bar fight to UFC ring with scissor kicking and everything, well produced video.


Papelbon Still Sucks

Its August 15th, we're still 6 games out of first place, and Jonathan Papelbon is still a huge clown. Listening to The Big Show on WEEI the other afternoon, a guy called in to the show's "Whiner Line" segment, and had this to say:

"Hey Papelbon, what's with that face you make when you're on the mound? It looks like you're taking a dump...and you might as well be, because ya' stink like one!"

After blowing the lead in two out of the last three games, and losing both of those, the Red Sox lost two perfect chances to pull closer to the AL East. Thank God Jon Lester pitched last night, going 8 innings, giving up no runs and striking out 5 batters in the 3-1 win over the Texas Rangers.

The point is the Sox are struggling, and they're running out of time. Jacoby Ellsbury, second biggest hack on the Sox, just went back on the disabled list with another rib injury. The rest of the bullpen is shaky at best with the exception of Manny Delcarmen on the rare occasion, and Boston's saving grace, Daniel Bard.

Daisuke Matsuzaka will face C.J. Wilson in the rubber match between the Sox and Rangers at 3:05.

Thinko De Mayo

You're probably looking for an explanation to this video since it's only 5 seconds long, and you've probably already watched it twice to try to understand it. So i suggest you watch it a few more times and tell me its not one of the funniest videos you've seen.

Don't F*** With The Bieb

All this YouTube success, millions of teenage girl fans all over the world, and this is how he get there... Unreal

YouTube's Number 1 Video

288,000,000 views. I wish I could make that up, I really do. That's like 15 million shy of the entire population in the United States. What the hell is happening...

Anyway, here are a few problems I have with this video. The Biebs is a creepy bastard. Hanging out in a dark bowling alley that's for kids 15 and younger, eyeballing that girl from 7 lanes over...Then just walking up to her in the middle of a frame, touching her and whatnot. At the :39 second mark, he just straight up grabs her and pulls her towards him. Kid, I know you're like 13, but that's still borderline illegal.

Fast-forward past him stalking the girl across the bowling alley, creeping on her from every possible angle, and get to 1:13, with the kid rocking the Rihanna haircut, swiftly followed by the Biebs doing a "pounding heart" dance move real quick. Classic.

Did you order a dance battle? 1:45? Because there it is. Ludacris comes in, that's all well and good, the Biebs does a strange arm-box dance at 2:53, and it hits me how creepy it is watching these underage kids do hip-hop dancing.

Icing on the cake? The girl is taller than him. Boom.

Infomercial Of The Week

Whether you suffer from a "health issue" or just the "occasional disagreeable meal," or if you just like taking the fun out of things, try out this military-tested fart-blanket. Unreal...
