Getting Oneself Into A Pickle

leave a comment »

Someone who is afraid of pickles is a waitress? Can’t fire her, either; that would violated the Americans With Disabilities Act.

The chicken “trap” is something I would do. Awesome.

Name That Tune

leave a comment »

So the better half and I had the following conversation over my frequent use of YouTube as my playlist.

“It seems like you’ve been listening to music with YouTube lately.”

“Lately? I’ve been doing this for years.”

“I don’t see how you can do that. It’d be too much of a pain.”

“Huh?”

“Well first you have to know the song and who sings that song…”

“Yeah, it’s always good to know the name of the song you’re listening to.”

“You know what I’m talking about.”

“No I don’t. How the hell would you find the CD to a song if you don’t know who made the CD or the title of the song you’re looking for?”

“Shutup.”

Advantage me.

Seriously though, Mrs. kkk is TERRIBLE at knowing the name to a song or its artist. If I had a dollar for every time she asked me, “What’s the name of that song by that guy,” well, I’d have some money. Not enough to retire, but maybe enough for a few used DVDs or something.

Gap Brand

leave a comment »

Huh?

Gap is back to blue. The casualwear chain said late Monday it will keep its decades-old white-on-navy blue logo after all. (AP) –

THE CONFUSION: Last week the company swapped in a new logo online without saying a word. The new logo—a white background with black letters—irritated fans, who then complained online.

THE MISTAKE: Gap North America President Marka Hansen said the company realized how much people liked the old logo. She also said Gap didn’t handle the change correctly and missed a chance to have shoppers offer input until it was too late.

Don’t companies usually make a big deal out of changing its brand look?

Here’s the old, err, new logo.

Here’s the new, err, old logo.

Wow. I think the people who complained online have a point. That’s awful.

Commuter-Class Citizens

leave a comment »

So I saw this story in the fishwrap and laughed. (This is where I got my one piece of paper stating I’m smart and all that.)

The U.S. Department of Education is reviewing how Point Park University applies for and distributes federal grant money for students in the wake of claims by a fired administrator.

“Once this initial review is complete, we will determine whether an on-site or off-site review is warranted,” said Jane Glickman, a department spokeswoman.

Betty L. Davis of Washington County last month sued Point Park and two university executives, accusing them of illegally firing her after she reported school officials were breaking federal law by systematically excluding commuter and part-time students from receiving federal grants.

Davis worked as Point Park’s senior director of student financial services from Nov. 10, 2008, until she was fired July 2.

University President Paul Hennigan did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

“The university is always subject to examination and review by the Department of Education,” spokeswoman Mary Ellen Solomon said in an e-mail. “We welcome its review and input.”

Solomon said that university officials would not respond to claims made in the lawsuit.

“Because it is audited annually, the university is comfortable that its method of distribution is in compliance with the law,” she said. “Any suggestion that there is ‘fraud’ involved is totally inaccurate.”

Is the school guilty? Sounds like a disgruntled employee to me. But I’m sure commuter and part-time students are probably regarded as second-class citizens. After all, these students aren’t on site 24/7 like full-time dorm students. When I was a student, this place didn’t give a shit about my financial issues. Then again this place didn’t like me a whole lot. That’s fine, though, because the feeling is more than mutual.

Charles Godart, 24, a Point Park senior and a commuter student from Shadyside, said he’s received every grant for which he applied. But the broadcast major wonders if he could have gotten other money that school officials never told him about.

“I have been to financial aid numerous times,” Godart said. “No one ever said you may be eligible for this, too, or that, also. And I’m eligible for everything.”

He learned about Davis’ lawsuit from newspaper reports.

“It makes me a little mad,” said Godart, who pays about $11,250 per semester. “Living off-campus is cheaper.”

ELEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS PER SEMESTER — lol wut?! My tuition was half that ten years ago! And this is a commuter student — no dorm expenses.

Thank Allah I paid off these school loans years ago and not have to deal with them ever again, even though I am on their Alumni list. Oh well, it’s just costing them more in postage to send me stuff that goes straight in the trash.

Book ’em

leave a comment »

So someone threw the book at the Muslim Wookie Fucker.

This is the astonishing moment a book was apparently hurled at the head of President Hussein during a campaign rally in Philadelphia.

The flying missile narrowly missed hitting the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher yesterday.

It is not clear what the book was, where it came from in the crowd, or why it was thrown at America’s Top Imam – who did not appear to notice the danger.

I hope it wasn’t the Constitution; he might have combusted if that made contact.

But I guess that’s better than having his Health Care Deform legislation catapulted at him; forget death panels, that sucker will kill someone upon impact.

1492 And Sailing The Ocean Blue

leave a comment »

To all the Mighty Whiteys out there — Happy Imperialist’s Day.

The following conversation took place on my Facebook wall. You can figure out who’s who:

“Glorified genocide.”

“I was always partial to Pizarro. Now that man knew how to topple a civilization.”

“Do you and Mrs. kkk get the day off for Happy White Man Day?”

“Funny enough, we don’t. We’re getting held down by the Man, too!”

“Down with the Man.”

“I often wonder if back in those days there were native peoples telling their fellow citizens, ‘Aw, come on. They just want to trade the goods we don’t want to trade. What harm can these pale-faces do?'”
