Microsoft Makes Something Cool?!?

I know…serious What The Crap…

I have to say, “It’s about time.” Honestly – this is one of the coolest looking products. Hopefully, you have been pretty much blow away by the coolness.


Unfortunately – nothing that Microsoft is doing holds a candle to this next product.

I’m not even kidding – you may want to use the bathroom before proceeding.

And Now…

CARL’S JR. sues JACK IN THE BOX over ads implying burgers are made from cow anus…

New Update Below…

My favorite headline of the week – perhaps ever!

The parent company of the Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s fast food chains sued rival Jack In The Box Inc. on Friday to stop TV ads that it says suggest Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s use cow anus to make Angus beef hamburgers.

CKE Restaurants Inc. sued Jack In The Box in U.S. District Court on Friday over an ad in which executives laugh hysterically at the word “Angus” and another where the chain’s pingpong ball-headed mascot, Jack, is asked to point to a diagram of a cow and show where Angus meat comes from.

“I’d rather not,” the pointy-nosed Jack replies.

That’s funny, because according to Carl’s JR. ads, I had thought that they made their burgers out of sex.

“They’re not being funny,” CKE chief executive Andrew F. Puzder said Friday. “They need to stop misleading people about what Angus beef is.”

I also feel mislead by Carl’s Jr. ads, that they make their milkshakes by manhandling and shaking cattle.

Obviously, Andrew (angus) F. Puzder (a disgrace to people named Andrew) must think that Carl’s Jr. patrons are completely stupid. Thanks Puzder for holding your customers in such high intellectual regard. If I was a patron of Carl’s Jr. (which I am not because of their own scuzzy ad campaigns) I would inform Mr. “Angus” Puzder that he should “Shut his Angus!” But then again – I would be misleading him into thinking I was talking about his beef…

Feel free to leave Angus Andrew a comment here. If you decide to call, be sure to speak very slowly and use small words. That is – if we can figure out how to use a phone.

UPDATE: My letter to Mr. Anus Burgers:

This message is for Mr. Andrew F. Puzder.
Great job going after Jack in the Box! When I first saw their ad I was shocked, and without thinking at all, immediately assumed your burger patties must be completely and entirely made of cow anus.
You see, being an “average Joe consumer” – I’m obviously a stupid idiotic moron who lacks the intellect to differentiate the concepts of “Cow Anuses” and “Angus Beef”. I am so glad that you are out there “fighting the good fight” for us dolts so that I don’t have to worry about eating anus any more.
By the way, I was excited to learn that just by eating your burgers, skanky hoes would come over to my house and wash my car for free, and to make milkshakes, all I have to do is dry-hump cattle. I just can’t believe it’s that easy!
Anyway, if you get a chance during your anus law suit, you should tell those Jack in the Box jerks that next time they should try some uninspired gratuitous sexual content and lay off the creative humor.

UPDATE: Carl’s Jr. writes back…

Dear Mr. __________

Thank you for taking the time to share your Angus with us. Our goal is to make our Angus happy–every Angus, every time! Your Angus have been forwarded to our management team for their review.

Please feel free to contact us again at Angus time.

Steyn Quote: On American Multicultural Prostration

Prologue: Just before Christmas 2003, a Catholic high school in San Juan Capistrano changed the name of its football team from “The Crusaders” to “The Lions”. Meanwhile in Irvine, the schedule for the Muslim football league’s New Year’s tournament contained teams with the names: The Intifada, The Mujahideen, The Sarasins, and The Sword of Alla.

“…our tendency is to respond by immediately taking out anything conceivably offensive about anything in our (football) teams names. Around about 2015, in California’s sporting calendar you’ll be having the San Diego Jihadies vs. the Oakland Culturally Sensitives and the Pasadena Sword of The Infidel Slayer vs. the Bakersfield Self Depricators.”

Multi Touch

…the future of digital input devices.

In light of the iPhone and this new table computer that Microsoft is rolling out – I thought I would post these videos just to remind everyone how smokin’ hot Multi Touch is:

We will see this in our homes soon. I can’t wait. Imagine this technology paired with the new ultra-thin flexible screens Sony just demonstrated…

Oh yeah, here’s the long explanation.

Clinton: Shared Prosperity Should Replace ‘On Your Own’ Society


“I prefer a ‘we’re all in it together’ society,” she said. “I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none.”

Great sentiment Mrs. Clinton but… Not the government’s job. People cannot be forced by governments to “share prosperity”. That’s not sharing – it’s stealing. Neither is it freedom.

“Fairness doesn’t just happen. It requires the right government policies.”

Furthermore, “Shared Prosperity” is anything but fair! As a business in the free market, I am trying to win consumers votes (dollars). I innovate to create a better product or provide a better service than the guy down the street. Why would I want to innovate if it just meant the profits of my hard work would be taken and redistributed to the “less prosperous” down the way? What would happen to competition if their were no chance to fail? Where is the incentive for the middle class to achieve if their hard work does nothing but go to the collective? Are we The Borg?Resistance Is Futile

Wondering what a “no failure” concept would be like? We already see this in government: They start a program – it flops. Are they forced to close shop and/or go back to the drawing board to come up with a better plan? NO! They just ask for more money. It’s up to the “overlords” higher up in government to provide that funding…

This is the fundamental massive flaw with socialism (Do not be fooled – “shared prosperity” IS socialism and Hillary is all for it). People must have motivation to work hard because humanity’s default position is clearly the road of least resistance. Therefore, to encourage positive change in a free people we must provide some sort of incentive, or benefit to hard work. “Sharing Prosperity” completely dissolves this concept. Local control over things is destroyed as the the government swoops in to decide what is better for you.

What people really need is to STOP BEING WUSSES! We need to realize that through our own hard work we can achieve great things. We need to accept failure as well as success. We need to realize that as free individuals we are responsible for the choices we make – not society. When we see a problem in society – it is up to US to fix it. And yes, it’s true, we cannot do it on our own. We need to rely on other people for help. This is a character value though – and NOT a government policy.

So – if you are concerned about the “prosperity” of your American brothers, you really have two options:

  1. I want the government to decide what’s right for me and society. (socialism)
  2. I want to take action, be responsible for my actions, be free to succeed OR fail, be charitable towards others by my own free will, and be rewarded for my own hard work. (freedom)
