Putting the GIF in TGIF.

Fridays are always animated 'round these parts. OH REALLY - TELL ME MORE!

OUCH: Well now they're just piling on.

THE MOST APPROPRIATE FLIP-FLOP EVER: Shamefaced?

CONSEQUENCES: Did you sign one of those oh-so-popular-temper-tantrum secession petitions? Yeah, you may have lost any chance at a government/military security clearance.

THE MADESKA GIF:

This GIF immediately reminded me of the work of an artist I really admire named Ben Madeska. Big fan of his still life work and his photography. Also, he's a good writer.

THIS IS WHY PEOPLE HATE CORPORATIONS: All of the media hype surrounding the demise of the Hostess corporation has focused on the impending (temporary) demise of the Twinkie and the subsequent tragedy for a nation of stoners, when it hasn't been demonizing the unionized workforce. But here's the deal. Management for the company was infamously bad. They've been through bankruptcy before. They've continually robbed pensioners of their hard earned retirement. And now the latest batch of crooks to run the company into the ground are doing it again.  SHAMEFUL.

RULES: The Associated Press puts the kabosh on fake words in their stories. Like homophobia. Their reasoning behind the move is very interesting and might make some heads explode.

WINTER STREAM:

BAT SHIT CRAZY: At what point to we start calling people out on this nonsense? This is an elected member of congress. Take your tin foil chapeau and hit the road douche canoe.  Is this libel?

FURBALL FOLLIES: What your puss really gets up to when he's out carousing the hood.

DEPARTMENT OF REDUNDANCY DEPARTMENT: Congress is about to go to battle over raising the debt ceiling. Again. And by congress, it's really just about one side of the so-called aisle. Mostly. Want to know what that little circus side show cost tax payers last time? Go ahead. Click this. And yes, thenanigans understands the importance of dealing with the nation's debt crisis. But since it's largely built up as a result of tax breaks for the wealthy and wars in Iraq and Aghanistan, there are ways to deal with it besides maintaining said tax breaks, etc.

I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE: And. I. Laughed.

You either get it right away or you don't.
