Overly Botox'd Celebrities Crying: A Photo Gallery That may Make you cry....With Laughter

7 Most Worthless Questions Heard on Sports News Shows

  <strong>Will They Become a Dynasty? Are They Already a Dynasty?</strong><br><br> This question is asked after every sports championship concludes and is a very effective time waster. My biggest problem (among many) with this is that no one has defined "Dynasty" and most agree that the definition of a dynasty changes between eras. <br><br> I love watching world class athletes compete in sports. What I don't care about is fat sports talk guys who wear khaki pants and black silk shirts with brown sandals, argue about where they feel one team ranks among every other team in history, dating back to 1962.  <br><br>That is VERY far removed from why most people enjoy sports
There is a lot of demand for sports news but there isn’t quite as much demand for sports talk, although it is in copious supply. Every sports fan wants to hear the latest news about their favorite teams, players, rivals, etc.  But what they don’t all need is to listen to four dudes giving their... Read more »

But before we get to the list, I had to present the Lifetime Achievement Award in the Medium of the Jheri Curl to Pascual Perez. The man has earned it. Thanks for you all you did, Pascual. <br><br> Ok, now on to the list.
Jheri! Jheri! Jheri! The rule for inclusion on this list is pretty easy: The player must have had a Jheri curl for most of that season as far as I could tell. To make this list a player needed to be in both his baseball prime and his plumage prime from about 1986-1989, when baseball... Read more »

The 26 Most Glorious Firework Names

The 26 Most Glorious Firework Names
I recently went to Phantom Fireworks in Merrillville, Indiana to buy some fireworks and became an instant fan of their firework naming team. Even though that store has well over 79 million(* by my estimation) different kinds of fireworks, all the names were pretty amusing. A friend put me in touch with Phantom CEO, Bruce... Read more »

6 Web Headline Teasers That Don't Work on me

<strong>This WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!!!</strong><br><br>Predicting that you can blow my mind implies that you know a lot about me. <br><br>But when web headlines promise to blow my mind with 11 facts about asparagus, it implies they don't know me because I don't like trite web headlines.
If a newspaper headline can be imagined as something read aloud by Walter Cronkite to a captive audience, then a web headline could be  analogous to something yelled out by a  carnival barker; an enticing-yet-veiled promise for all at the carnival to come have a closer look. Then by the time you have a closer... Read more »

The rules for Teen Hunks fistfights are the same as for my steroid-using baseball player fights that you probably didn’t see or vote on: no weapons, no help from anyone else, just a plain old fistfight. Also, since the hunks are from different eras, they should be judged based on how they’d fight at the... Read more »
