Scared Poet wishes you a Merry Christmas
Dec 25th, 2009 by scaredpoet

And what good is a Christmas wish from scaredpoet.com without our traditional dose of awkward Christmas moments?

Right up our alley: sketchysantas.com. ?Really folks, not EVERY Santa is entirely golden, and this site certainly points that out. ?This is dedicated to all of those people out there who’ve had an awkward Santa moment.

And whatever holiday you celebrate around this time of year, we hope it was awesome, and that an awesome new year awaits you.

Why Celebrity is Synonymous with Stupidity
Dec 20th, 2009 by CrazedPenguin

Part of my ritualistic Monday night House-viewing is turning on the TV and setting it to FOX, just to make sure I don’t miss a second of brilliance. This, of course, has its downsides, as I start cooking for House night around 7 (yes, an hour early), and FOX airs plenty of garbage before House comes on. The particular garbage I’m referring to in this instance happens to be The Insider. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it’s a way to keep up with the latest stupid shit celebrities are getting themselves into. All with a running commentary.

I feel I should clarify something before I continue: I do not care about the lives of celebrities, generally speaking. Yes, it is unfortunate when one of them drops over dead. However, it’s no more important to me than the dozens of people in the obituaries every single day. The rest is just them leading lives with considerably more money than the rest of us, oftentimes doing things considerably more ass-backwards than most of us (there are stupid people in every walk of life, so I can’t justify saying celebrities are dumber than everyone else).

Now, digression aside, I normally tune this out and focus on not burning my food (or setting the apartments on fire), but I heard mention of actual news on there this past Monday. News that, on its own, had already sent me into a fit of rage. The whole thing about the Salahis crashing a party at the White House. We’ll get to my thoughts on that in a minute, though. Needless to say, my attention was grabbed away from the task at hand to see what these nitwits could possibly have to say on the matter shy of “Oh, at least they were dressed nice but that was wrong.” Sure enough, they ended up debating whether or not the Salahis should be thrown in jail for this. Oh, but it gets better. Read the rest of this entry »

And now, a silly cat gets wet.

I have no words for this….

Normally, cats drink water from the faucet in a more gingerly manner, because they hate getting wet and will avoid the water getting on their fur in any possible way. Maybe this one’s a mutant who actually enjoys baths?

Showbiz people dropping like flies!

Billy Mays

What the hell is going on here?!

First Ed McMahon. Then Farah Fawcett. Then Michael Jackson.

Now Billy Mays is gone?!

The 50-year-old known for his shouting OxiClean ads was pronounced dead at 7:45 a.m. The Hillsborough County medical examiner will perform an autopsy, Tampa police Lt. Brian Dugan said.

Mays was on the US Airways flight from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Tampa on Saturday that had a hard landing at Tampa International Airport when the plane’s front tire blew out. There were no reported injuries on Flight 1241, US Airways told CNN.

According to a local Tampa TV station, Mays said: “All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head.”

Damn you US Airways!

Who’s going to sell me cheap useless trinkets on late night TV, with overexaggerated hand gestures?!

What’s going to happen to one of my favorite reality TV shows?

Why couldn’t it have been this guy?!

You may think this post is written in jest, but seriously now, this is distressing me!

Hooray for awkwardness!

Pooh family Photo

Because we all love to see a good train wreck on the ‘net, an enterprising blogger has set up yet another site where you can laugh and laugh at other’s people’s photographic faux pas: Awkward Family Photos.

Let?s be honest? we?ve all got them. At some point in our lives, someone close to us has made us pose for an uncomfortable photo. Well, here?s your chance to share your family?s awkwardness with the world.

I think the interesting part about this site is that the photos are (we presume) willing shared by the people who are in them or took them! If I was in any way involved with this photo, for example, I don’t think I’d own up to that, much less make others aware that it exists.

But, I guess some people are up for letting others laugh at their visual expense. Enjoy. 🙂
