I really needed this

Sometimes I stumble upon a bright, shiny, happy piece of the internet that makes me laugh like a hyena and forget all of my problems for a minute. Lately, a minute is more of a respite than ever.

From Something Awful

Nothing goes together quite like "FUCK YOU FAGGOT" and "GOD BLESS." It's the right wing Internet's version of peanut butter and chocolate.

If you don't know Something Awful, you should.

It's groups like this one that fill me with hope for the future of this nation.

So much for ever having life insurance

My 35th birthday isn't for a week or so, but my Dad's 60th was this weekend and to celebrate both, my little brother got us the greatest present I could ever get.

This is what I did for my birthday:

This could quite possibly be the happiest I've ever been. It's certainly the happiest I've looked in any picture.

Thankfully, the photographer did not capture the very next moment, which was me facedown in the dirt. I will have to work on that because I will definitely be doing this again as often as I possibly can.

It was the best feeling I have had in my life.

All on a Mardi Gras day...

Miss Antoinette K-Doe died this morning. She was a wonderful woman and a singular New Orleans character. I met her for all of ten minutes one weekend afternoon after the storm and I can tell you this - the city sang through her heart. Even in the gutted shell of the Mother in Law Lounge, she was a bright light who made everyone feel like family.

Goodnight, Miss Antoinette. The city, she will not be the same without you.

I honestly thought I could not possibly feel any worse than I already do this week.

Then this:

The New Orleans Saints have released running back Deuce McAllister.
Deuce McAllister is one of the best running backs in the game. Bad knees and a new coach with a new golden boy are cutting short a career than should have been long, storied and finished in New Orleans. Deuce is a great guy who loves this city. I've met him and I will miss him.

Fuckin Saints...
