Pass the Turkey, Hold the Politics: How to Get Through Thanksgiving Without a Big Dumb Argument Around the Dinner Table

QUESTION ONE (POSED BY YOUR DAD): You see that Papa John’s guy? I’m telling you: Obamacare is going to ruin this country. I know Jeff [your 22-year-old brother who is currently insured on your family’s health plan as a direct result of Obamacare] went knocking on doors for our “president” because he’s never had a real job and doesn’t know what it’s like to pay taxes just so a bunch of people can get a free ride. But I’m not mad, because he’ll figure it out, once he gets out into the world, and sees what it’s like to make payroll or buy a house after the government’s gotten through with you.
ANSWER: Here’s what I think about Skyfall. It was an awesome movie — and, wow, Sam Mendes totally brought it — but it wasn’t a Bond movie, you know? It was so cool and Bardem was ah-may-zing but seeing where James Bond grew up? That’s more Batman, right? What do you think, cousin Sam?

For Some Odd Reason, Glenn Beck is Selling Blue Jeans

You know what’s wrong with America? Its jeans. Glenn Beck denounced Levi’s last year after the company featured global protests and revolutions in their ads, and now he’s put denim where his mouth is and launched his very own jean line at 1791 Supply & Co.

Today’s Most Awesome Tumblr: ‘Arrested Development’ Meets Mitt Romney

The amazing Tumblr Lucille and Mitt has been around for some time, but it’s only now coming to our attention. The idea is simple: Superimpose actual quotes from Mitt Romney, the teetotaling Republican candidate often accused of being out of touch with ordinary people, over pictures of Lucille Bluth, the vodka-swilling, laughably out-of-touch Arrested Development character. The results are surprisingly convincing.

The vast majority of hallucinogen-related hospitalizations aren’t the result of direct physiologic effects, but from injuries related impaired judgement. For those who insist on experimenting with acid, at least do so in a supportive, private environment.

With release of dopamine and seratonin, many report senses of euphoria and existential ambition.

Let’s just call Game of Thrones for what it is: A sexy political campaign featuring two years and twenty episodes of people making empty promises to the masses, and power plays for one dumb job. The only thing missing were attack ads, and thanks to Mother Joneswe now have them.
