I also ran across another story that made me happy. It seems that this will be the last christmas any of us will have to see those frakking awful Bratz dolls. A judge ruled today that they have to issue a recall for all of their products after the holiday season and destroy all of their production machines for making more. Matel had won an injunction a while back because the Bratz people had stolen their intellectual property rights and the hammer finally fell. It couldn't have come too soon. I like to think of it as applying a generous dose of Whore-B-Gone. A holiday without Bratz costumes will also be sweet.
Feh. The only people who were happy about this particular trend were probably pedophiles.
Holy crap. OJ Simpson was found guilty? I dunno how that passed me by, even with the news blackout. It's about time that asshole got what was coming to him. I hope he enjoys assrape.
According to the article, he's going to be sentenced soon and the judge will have a pretty wide discretion as to how much time he gets. At the minimum, he's going to be someone's butt barbie for 6 glorious years. Since kidnapping was one of the charges he was convicted of, I imagine it can range up to 20 years.
You really have to boggle at the incredible gall and arrogance he displayed. He got away with a murder where the evidence was overwhelming. Almost anyone else would have thanked his lucky stars and kept a low profile after that. The idea that he thought he could go through with this Vegas scheme really puts his sanity at issue. If stupidity were a psychological condition, he'd be in a mental institution. I guess a penal institution is just as well. I'm hoping he gets shived.
Shit. Planned Parenthood is offering gift cards? WTF? I'm just not sure what the proper reaction is when you open up your present on christmas morning and find one of those. Surprise! We always knew you wanted an abortion and now Santa has brought you one. Like, yay! Or perhaps you could give the gift card to your 13 year old so she can pay for her first gynecological exam or something. It just seems nuts. Next thing you know you'll be able to buy a gift card for a prostate exam.
So much news.
