Muscle Reagan Will Watch Over Staten Island

by Dan Weber

Nice traps

Sun’s out guns out, Staten Island! Behold Saint Ronald of the Rippling Biceps, Vanquisher of Russia and Crusher of Pull-Up Sets, conveniently located next to A Vape Lounge, where all the cool kids are vaping right now and you’re not even invited.

So this is a mural, and it’s made by a man named Scott LoBaido, who really goes all-in on the AMERICA LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT thing. Here is a [sic]‘d word slurry from Scott LoBaido’s website about his very favorite art he ever drawed:

His greatest creative accomplishment thus far was “Flags across America” where he drove across the United States, in 10 months, and painted a large American flag on one rooftop in each of the 50 states. His goal was to ensure that all soldiers flying home from war would look down and see an American Flag greeting them home … Scott’s mission was to make sure that the soldiers knew how grateful we all are for their service to this great country, and to acknowledge the families of these great men and women, and of coarse express his pride in being a free American.

And if you’re thinking, “Phew, I am not a trashy Staten Islander; this stuff might as well be in Montana,” THINK AGAIN, because Muscle Reagan is going to liberate Queens Boulevard soon.

The giant Reagan will remain on Staten Island for a week, then LoBaido plans to hang up the mural in various spots around the city. The next spot for Reagan will be Queens Boulevard, LoBaido said.

Now, let us trust but verify: Scott LoBaido believes Dead But Obviously In Heaven Reagan has really packed on the muscle mass. Does Ghost Reagan use the steroids? We are not sure. Perhaps Reagan’s combination of mass and definition is indeed the result of hard work at the gym and a life devoted to baked chicken and steamed broccoli. Perhaps they are the result of artistic license maybe, but would artistic license not also be a troubling sign of liberalism, which is a well-known brain disease? Seems fishy, “Scott.”

Also, this:

The artist made the digital collage using one of his flag paintings and added cut-and-paste images of the former president on top.

Ha ha, Scott LoBaido cannot even draw Ronald Reagan’s face from memory! Here, Scott, this is what Ronald Reagan looked like before you glued his head onto the body of a bouncer from some bar near Rockaway:

The Ghost of Conservatism Yet to Come has also revealed to us that Reagan got ink’d up in Heaven. He’s got a sweet tat of an anchor and the words, “The Gipper,” because that is who he was once, in a movie, and while the movie has nothing to do with the sea or boats or anchors, still, cool anchor! Muscle Reagan does not have a tattoo related to trading missiles for hostages and using the proceeds to fund Latin American death squads, which LoBaido describes as “some baggage” that, he insists, “all presidents” have.

We look forward to LoBaido’s slimmer, trimmer version of Republican dream boat William Howard Taft.

NYPD's Twitter Outreach Backfires in Most Predictable Way Possible

NYPD's Twitter Outreach Backfires in Most Predictable Way Possible

Twitter has been around for eight years, and it still hasn't quite sunken in that it's a terrible place to promote your brand. Especially if your brand is police brutality, unnecessary roughness, and racial profiling.

morbi: unfriendlybambi: f-emasculata: REALLY just wanna take...









morbi:

unfriendlybambi:

f-emasculata:

REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.

  1. Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
  2. Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
  3. Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
  4. Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and  you catch each other off guard.
  5. Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
  6. Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?

Aww!!!

More important facts about opossums:

1. Opossums, like cats, are meticulous groomers, resulting in them being one of the top predators for ticks in the wild. This make them an important deterrent in the spread of lyme disease.

2. The act of “playing dead” is not a conscious decision on the part of the opossum, but a defense mechanism that automatically activates when the animal is panicked. It might seem funny to you to see an opossum flop over, but you’re literally scaring them into fainting when you startle them, and potentially leaving them vulnerable to carrion eaters, so DON’T DO IT.

3. Opossums are not naturally aggressive, and will usually only bite as an absolute last resort if they feel cornered. They will hiss and drool and try to seem as intimidating as possible, but this is just an act, as opossums are terrible at physically defending themselves. Your dog is not in danger of being hurt by the “mean ol’ possum” because that fight is ALWAYS in the dog’s favor.

4. If you have to pick up an adult opossum, please don’t do it by the tail. It’s fine for babies and juveniles to hang from them, but as they get older, their bodies become too heavy and it puts a lot of strain on their muscles to be carried by the tail. You wouldn’t pick up a cat by their tail, so don’t pick up a possum that way either.

The Office Is Now a Database of Human Emotion

The Office was built on referential humor, but its biggest trademark was its signature, silent cutaway shot. So after cataloguing every pop culture reference made on the show , two guys with a lot of time on their hands created the "Stare Machine," a database of cutaways, sorted by every human emotion under the sun.

ABC News Demands Pulitzer Credit; Prize Winners Call ABC Idiots

by J.K. Trotter
V

"The Center is prepared to show in great detail how little ABC's Brian Ross and Matt Mosk understood about even the most fundamental concepts and key facts and how they repeatedly turned to Chris to advise them or, in some instances, to do their work for them."

ABC News Demands Pulitzer Credit; Prize Winners Call ABC Idiots

ABC News has never won a Pulitzer Prize, since Pulitzers are not for television. That didn’t stop ABC News president Ben Sherwood from demanding that the awards committee (which doesn’t recognize television) recognize ABC for its role in the reporting that won another (non-television) outlet a Pulitzer earlier this week. Sherwood’s public campaign has already turned ugly.

“Games are supposed to be difficult and complex and reward my many years of acquired knowledge about the medium so that I can experience comic book level narratives that reward me and feed into a feeling of accomplishment so that I can justify the time I’ve spent playing video games. Every game that is nonviolent, that is open to casual users, that does not pander to my young, white, teenaged, male demographic, signifies in a very real sense a threat to my own perceived dominance over this medium.”

New Home Is Where The Internet Is!  Tumblr’s 10-page limit is keeping me from posting the whole thing, so head on over to the webcomic to read the rest (plus a blog post with Paris photos and doodles).

I’m going to Strasbourg tomorrow!!!  I’m so excited.  We might take a day trip into Germany and the Black Forest 8-D AHHHHHH.  Back soon, love and hugs~

-Your friend Tally

Tally is not only an AMAZING comic artist but she’s living the dream! I hope my girls grow up and don’t let the constant yet abstract notion of fear dictate how they live in this world. Way to go Tally!! :D

I love this so much! As someone who’s only really started to travel in the last year, I totally get that initial terror. I’ve been pretty fortunate, and made so many friends all over the world. I went to Boston on a whim this weekend and got to spend an evening with comic people I met mostly through twitter - and everyone was wonderful. Yes, I got terrible food poisoning on the way home, but I also got to have barbecue and Manhattans with people who used to be strangers. Travel! It’s good for you.

I’ve been experiencing something like this a lot, too, and it’s so true! Even when the motel is covered in blood or people are throwing rocks at us or any number of bad and kinda scary happenings, traveling is so much fun and worth it and I feel so alive!

Happy Birthday to One of History's Greatest Haters, William Hazlitt

by Michelle Dean
V

"Life would turn to a stagnant pool, were it not ruffled by the jarring interests, the unruly passions, of men. The white streak in our own fortunes is brightened (or just rendered visible) by making all around it as dark as possible; so the rainbow paints its form upon the cloud."

Happy Birthday to One of History's Greatest Haters, William Hazlitt

Today is the 235th birthday of William Hazlitt, the combative English essayist and journalist, who once wrote an entire essay on the pleasures of hating things. We have a sense you might like it.
