The biggest news this week wasn’t Mitt’s win in Florida, it was the much anticipated filing of the S1 for Facebook’s IPO. I continue to ask the question of whether Zucks is a force for good or evil, but either way Mitt and Mark prove that the rich guys always win. I also made the argument that Steve Jobs was a bigger asshole than Zucks (for which I admire Jobs greatly).
I did wonder where Newt, the high paid historian, is when Freddie Mac needs him after getting caught betting billions against the homeowners they are suppose to be helping?
You really can’t escape the Super Bowl hype. I admitted that I am a sports nut, a 40 year Patriots fan but I fucking hate the Super Bowl. If you want to look good in a KISS outfit, I did give some tips on how to get in shape even if you are old and fat like me.
The biggest story on Huffington Post was about how many wives hate their husbands. I compared that to my own post about about how being a dude isn’t such a bad thing after all and, you guessed, all hell broke out.
I did try to point out how many men fall hopeless and forever in love with women. But that only seemed to quell the gender war momentarily.
Apparently the much publicized CDC study on sexual violence was done with less than perfect methodology, calling into question whether the numbers were vastly overstated. But, I asked, if we move outside the developed world to the developing world we might want to rethink how we debate gender and what our responsibility is as men.
Looks like men are more likely to be homeless, which might have to do with all the crazy stuff they like to do (at least according to guys like James Franco and Andrew Sullivan both of whom were obsessed with bathroom rituals in my story about the shit guys like to do).
I found it weird that the Olympics decided to make boxing a woman’s sport (because beating your brains in should be an equal opportunity endeavor, I guess) and professed my eternal man-crush on Blake Griffin.
No one seemed to care…
But porn. I got a bunch of famous people to talk about porn and morality. And the phone lines went crazy. What, are you all a bunch of one track minded guys or something?
Watch Martin Luther King talk about manhood and calm the fuck down, will ya?
