If you’re old enough, and into American odd news, you’ll remember Jerry Falwell saying he thought the purple Teletubbie was gay. His son carried on in the family tradition of spreading religious themed bigotry and hatred of queer people.
There’s no problem if the Falwells’ amplified, vocal hypocrisy didn’t hurt other people while they had their fun. Or were they blackmailed?
8 months ago, this Twitter user claimed Ted made the same mistake while watching Twitter-hosted porn:
What’s with Saskatchewan generating unkind Conservative politicians named Brad? Brad “Bumpkin” “Two Finger” Trost threw together some stock images into a meme against people in love being married.
I only see one penis in the image, and two fingers. Where’s the second?
At least the Edmonton-area also has to catch up to Moose Jaw, and Saskatoon & area (who elects Trost).
Reuters has brought a new phrase to the surface in an effort to describe someone religiously and politically motivated to attempt to murder peaceful political demonstrators.
“Religious assailant” is far more precise than “terrorist”.
I looked on Google with this search
“Religious assailant” -jerusalem
to see what other news comes up. Nothing of note. Apparently this is the first publicly noted crime by a “religious assailant” in years, if ever.
A Swift Current person censored a dancer criticizing the Saskatchewan Government. The Premier’s home is Swift Current.
A recording is available and is not really work safe.

This hilariously depressing account of an American sex-ed classroom is a sight to behold.
I’ll give old clothes to Salvation Army, and shop in their thrift shops, but I wouldn’t attend a re-education camp of theirs.
Conservatives: Solve community problems by shipping the problems out of the community!
“Someone also began colluding with a freelance writer who was known not to be a fan of mine and, together, they set out to try to find corroborators to build a case to defame me. She found some sympathetic ears by painting herself as a victim and turned this into a campaign. The writer boldly started contacting my friends, acquaintances and even work colleagues – all of whom came to me to tell me this was happening”
Ghomeshi probably wants to strangle Brown.
Microbrachius dicki was the fish that realized it could use sex to reproduce. Feeling unsatisfied, fish eventually returned to spawning instead.

Hey! Just wondering why you have the archaic & sexist rule that your waitresses have to wear a minimum 1″ heel while they’re on their feet all night? The men don’t have the same rule. That’s terrible, and I actually won’t be back because of it. Please pass that on to head office, thanks.
Brown’s wrote: “the policy that our girls need to be in a 1″ heel is a brand standard…”
I won’t be opting to return to Browns because of this. I’m also going to be telling my friends to avoid Browns, and will be posting this response to my blog. If you decide to modernize your policy and lose the sexist attitude toward your employees’ clothing, please let me know so I can update everyone.
If you operated in a location where women weren’t allowed to work, or perhaps people of a particular race, would your “brand standard” adapt to that? In Saskatchewan, we try not to institutionalize sexism. At least I’d rather not support it.
(A pair of commenters note that Earls and Moxxies adhere to the same archaic code, so good to avoid them too.)
