Brint: Or the way Hansel combs his hair?
Meekus: Or like, doesn't, it's like, ex-squeeze me, but have you ever heard of styling gel?
Brint: I'm sure Hansel's heard of styling gel, he's a male model.
Meekus: Uh, earth to Brint, I was making a joke.
Brint: Uh, Earth to Meekus, duh, okay I knew that!
Meekus: Uh earth to Brint, I'm not so sure you did cuz you were all 'well I'm sure he's heard of styling gel' like you *didn't* know it was a joke!
Brint: I knew it was a joke Meekus, I just didn't get it right away!

Jersey Shore cast on the corporate welfare dole

?Jersey Shore? tax credit approved; NJ taxpayers angry they?re paying for Snooki, The Situation

The state Economic Development Authority has approved covering a $420,000 tax credit for production costs from the "Jersey Shore's" first season.
 
That means tax dollars will be used to offset the cost of all the club hopping, fist-pumping and fake tanning from the hit reality show's 2009 season.
 
The irony that New Jersey residents will be forced to foot the bill for a show that many view as an affront to the state's self-image is not lost on some.

After reading this article, I'm sure that Smackie and Mankie are lamenting that all they got was spam.

A mobius strip of metasatire:

The Onion awakens a sleeping giant

And the most ridiculous part of this story?

The United States Capitol Police on Thursday said they were investigating The Onion, a satiric media organization, for making false reports on Twitter claiming that there was a hostage situation ...

A satiric media organization is being investigated for engaging in satire? It's straight out of The Onion.

Doesn't it seem that they put a couple gag ones in there to f with people?

Like:

Jared Leto: Maybe we can turn our phones + comps off at a certain time in honor of his contributions.

or

Neil Diamond: iSad.


Come on!  It's FUN!  Come up with your own fake celebrity Tweets about the death of Steve Jobs!

Tony Bennett:  We lost a super terrific cat who made the world groove to his music.  We'll miss you.  Wonderful.

Authorities: 2 women throw bleach on each other during fight at Walmart; hazmat team called

ARBUTUS, Md. ? Authorities in Maryland say two women threw bleach and another chemical on each other during a fight at a Walmart, prompting officials to evacuate the store for two hours and call in a hazardous materials team.

Fire officials say 19 people had to be taken to hospitals, although only one was thought to have serious injuries. That person was taken to the Wilmer Eye Institute with a potentially serious eye injury.

Fire officials were called to the store in the Baltimore suburb of Arbutus shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday.

Fire Department spokesman Glenn Blackwell says one person was arrested and charges are pending.

Moviegoer sues: Not enough driving in 'Drive'

The suit alleges that the company "promoted the film ?Drive? as very similar to the ?Fast and Furious,? or similar, series of movies." But, Sarah was sad to learn, "?Drive? bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film? having very little driving in the motion picture."
