WTF WEDNESDAY, Holy-shit-am-I-actually-on-time edition!

First, gross wtf!

Link

I purchased a Happy Meal, not to eat, but to observe and blog about. Yes, I bought a Happy Meal and then placed it on my office shelf, right behind me and my computer. It sat on my shelf for a year as a silent witness to our fast food industry.

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t really change all that much. It gets a bit dried out, but doesn’t smell bad or anything. Gross! I can’t believe we put that shit into our bodies! Ugh!

Next, Texas WTF (although I’m beginning to feel like that’s me being redundant at this point)

Link

I’m gonna paraphrase here, and list the bolded proposed changes. The supposed “reasoning” (if you can call it that) and a few more minor points at the link:

– A greater emphasis on “the conservative resurgence of the 1980s and 1990s.”

– A reduced scope for Latino history and culture.

– Changes in specific terminology.

– A more positive portrayal of Cold War anticommunism.

– Language that qualifies the legacy of 1960s liberalism.

– Thomas Jefferson no longer included among writers influencing the nation’s intellectual origins.

– Excision of recent third-party presidential candidates Ralph Nader (from the left) and Ross Perot (from the centrist Reform Party).

– A recommendation to include country and western music among the nation’s important cultural movements.

These changes would affect up to 80% of the textbooks sold across the country. You see, Texas is big. It has a lot of people in it. Textbook companies knows that more people = more textbooks, more textbooks = more money…**sigh** Come on Cali, do some crazy changes the other way! Textbook companies won’t know what to do, and they’ll stay the way they are, or something like that. Just…ugh! If the dominant textbooks are changed in that manner…. THEY WANT TO LEAVE OUT JEFFERSON FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!! WTF?!?!

Next, prostitution WTF:

Link

I really just posted this for the second to last line:

A prostitute is more likely to have sex with a police officer than to get officially arrested by one.

**gigglesnort**

Next; Border WTF!

Link

The situation came to a head recently when a local man was arrested while walking down a street he said that he has walked down for years without a problem.”I walked over to Canada on a Saturday night around quarter to nine to get a pizza,” Buzz Roy explained. Roy lives and works in Derby Line. He walked down Church Street to the nearest pizza shop, which happens to be in Canada, and said that to his surprise he was stopped by state police and told that crossing on Church Street is illegal.

**sighs** It’s illegal to walk down the street to get a pizza because of an imaginary line on a piece of paper. Great.

With 1 minute to spare! Enjoy!

BTW, Prince is disgusted with your shenanigans! (Edit: Apparently wordpress and gifs don’t always play nice. If it doesn’t move for you, click on it!)
