“Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived.”

Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics (via nerdhapley)

It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.

(via nerdhapley)

True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.

Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.

Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.

And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.

CNN’s Don Lemon: We Should Beat Our Kids Because It Worked For Slave Masters

by Kaili Joy Gray
Nope

He wants to believe

Sure, slavery might have had its downsides, but CNN anchor Don Lemon is pretty sure there’s at least one valuable lesson to be learned: how to effectively discipline your slaves children to instill the appropriate amount of terror so they’ll know “who’s in control.”

No, we are not kidding.

In a conversation on “CNN Tonight” with Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo, which you can watch below if you dare, but it will make you want to punch all the things (which is great for kids!), Cuomo discusses the research conducted by Alan E. Kazdin, professor of psychology at Yale University and director of its Parenting Center and Child Conduct Clinic, who did a massive study on whether spanking children is effective. Turns out, based on 30 years of research, it is not!

So what does Don Lemon have to say to that?

I don’t believe that.

Case closed! We all know to take Lemon’s beliefs very seriously because he is a very serious person who, during CNN’s round-the-clock coverage of the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370, asked if it was possible the plane had disappeared into a black hole because “that’s what people are saying,” even though he knew “it’s preposterous — but is it preposterous you think?”

Besides, Lemon chatted up his mom the other day, and she explained why she hit him, and he turned out fine — which is a very popular argument people are making right now in defense of beating the crap out of children; they were beaten, and look how well-adjusted and not at all damaged they are!

Then things got weird. Weirder, we mean.

Listen, I went to training — I hate to do this — with my dog, and fear is the same thing. You have to teach who’s in control.

Apparently, Don Lemon took his dog to the Michael Vick Dog Obedience Training School where he learned that beating your dog will teach it to roll over when you tell it to or whatever, and that’s a great way to train your kids too, even as Cuomo keeps trying to explain to him that the research on that says nuh-uh.

“It’s also teaching a child that violence sometimes has a necessity in life,” Cuomo says. But, Lemon insists, spanking is not violent. And to prove it, he grabs Camerota’s hand and slaps it and says, “This is not violent.” Yes, really.

Hostile work environment?

“Ow,” Camerota says, and then they all have a good super awkward chuckle about it, and then she says “ow” some more, but hopefully, she’s learned her lesson and knows to fear Lemon now, like a good dog.

Then Lemon goes on to explain how he’s evolved on the position he took 24 hours earlier:

“I have to say that when I was a kid, I would have to go and get the switch off the tree,” Lemon recounted. “And if I brought back a switch that wasn’t big enough, then my grandmother or my dad or my mom would go get a bigger one.”

“I’m not condoning what Adrian Peterson is alleged of doing, but, you know, people do discipline their children.”

Now that he’s had time to think about it, though, maybe we collectively should re-examine our thoughts on hitting kids, except that, well, nah, it’s probably still a good idea in a lot of cases.

And then things got weirder-er.

Lemon: Especially for me as an African-American, because the question is where did you learn that from? Was that learned from the slave master? Getting the switch? Being beaten?

Cuomo: How is that a rationale? Help me with this. Is this white man’s ignorance? I keep hearing this. Well, maybe it was passed down from slave culture. Why would that be a rationale to continue a practice like this? Isn’t that the last thing you would want to continue?

Lemon: Because Chris, the slaves were beaten and some people had to go and get the whip.

There’s further discussion in which Lemon continues to insist that hitting kids really is necessary sometimes, but after his Smart Take on how whippings and beating worked well for slaves and dogs, we won’t even bother, because honestly, you can’t beat that.

Unruly Mob Tosses Ukrainian Politician Into a Dumpster

by Dayna Evans
V

I didn't realize until just now, but I have long felt politics should take more cues from the first season of Fox's "Glee".

Unruly Mob Tosses Ukrainian Politician Into a Dumpster

An unruly mob of Ukrainian protesters took matters into their own hands today when marching outside of parliament. Instead of holding signs and telling the man how they felt in a polite discussion, they took Vitaly Zhuravsky and tossed him into a dumpster, adding on old tires and spraying water for good measure.

IM SCREAMIBG WITH LAUGHTER THESE GIRLS ARE MY HEROES

SHOTS FUCKING FIRED

For anyone not familiar with how modern country sounds, these girls are calling out ACTUAL songs like making blatant references to ACTUAL lyrics from other songs on the radio.

And its fucking FLAWLESS OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING.

One of the reasons I stopped listening to country was, when I was a kid, the radio was full of songs by women and songs that talked about women like they were actual people.

Now so many of the songs dont give women a personality, just describe things about them like their legs, their lips, how they look in your truck. Its just SO much objectification.

My sister just showed me this and its ADSFHASDFKLLKFH she even said she heard it on the radio im so happy

"I aint your tan legged juliet" IM SCREECHING

I might be in love please send help

Bolded by me. I felt the same way.

Key & Peele Drop a New Track as Obama and Luther

by Jay Hathaway

Keeping with my brand of "writing superficial notes about President Obama's appearance," did Pres O go cold turkey on his Just For Men this summer? His hair is so grey even his parodic depictions are more salt than pepper.

Also I don't endorse this link

Season 4 of Key & Peele starts Sep. 24, and they're previewing it with a new rap track, delivered in character as President Obama and his anger translator, Luther. Almost every line is a reference to a previous sketch, and they made sure to hit all the good ones. Sexually.

Scarlett Johansson Gives Birth to Healthy Baby Grandmother

One more frigging person in New York City, now that actress Scarlett Johansson has just given birth to her first child—a baby girl—in the already densely populated metropolis. The baby's name is Rose Dorothy, and she is 85 years old, and she loves her grandchildren very much, and she really shouldn't be driving anymore except that her kids are leery of selling her Buick and taking away her sense of "independence."
