The cease fire in Gaza has crumbled. The place is starting to look as bad as Ferguson, Missouri. Speaking of, the Westboro Baptist Church says they're planning to picket in Ferguson. So it's officially a 3 ring circus now.
Conservatives are suggesting an indictment against Texas Governor Rick Perry is "banana republic* politics" coming right out of the Oval office. I don't know if Obama is behind it, but looking at his approval ratings, the president is the guy with one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. Or maybe it’s just Michelle Obama practicing banana bread politics.
Phil Simms from CBS sports says he won't use the word "Redskins," during his broadcasts this year. Don’t think this is a big thing. The Redskins suck, so Phil Simms won't be doing any of their games anyway.
The Princeton Review says that Vanderbilt University has the happiest students in the country. They obviously aren't the football season ticket holder students.
And a few things you need to know …
On this date back in 1914, the Germans occupied Brussels and quickly earned the nickname, "Brussel Krauts."
On this date in 1918, during World War I, Britain opened its offensive on the Western front. Suddenly, it was no longer all quiet.
It looks like fall is going to arrive a little early. You can get the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks starting next Tuesday. My favorite urban legend making the Twitter rounds is that if you know if you say “pumpkin spice” in the mirror three times, a white girl in yoga pants will appear and tell you all her favorite things about fall. I adore pumpkin spice. I stockpiled pumpkin spice coffee creamer last year and I’m finally down to my last bottle AND I use it in my pumpkin spice coffee. Maybe I have a problem; I once sang “Wish You Were Here: while playing Rock Band and dedicated it to pumpkin spice.
The NFL says that performing in their Super Bowl halftime show is so profitable for the artists; the artists should pay them for the privilege. There certainly is lots of exposure. Just ask Janet Jackson.
And ... it’s a sign of the End Times; TLC has ordered more “Kate plus 8” specials. Maybe she’ll get lucky and one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is single and likes crazy broads with too many kids.
*That’s some sharply dressed politics!
