The F-Word in Movies

At one time it was considered totally shocking for the F-word to occur in a movie. (What the hell; the word is fuck!)

Now some good souls have actually counted the number of times these occur in films, so that people with sensitive ears can avoid too much f-word profanity.

It's in Wikipedia. Will this result in an f-word arms race?

The Wolf of  Wall Street used it over 500 times.

The Wildlife Refuge Occupiers

Some nearby ranchers "occupied" (squatted) on a wildlife refuge. They asked for people to send them snacks. Some did: bags of candy dicks!

Beyond Tacky into Piss-Poor

Nobody out of St. Louis (maybe) has said it, but I think that the movements of the Rams and the Chargers to Inglewood, California is beyond tacky' and approaching piss-poor with warp speed!

Is community loyalty outmoded? Or did the Giants, Dodgers, and Braves put pay to that? Not to mention the Oilers and the Colts? Enos Stanley Kroenke, owner of the Rams, kissed St. Louis off by describing it as :an economic abyss ill suited to hosting an N.F.L. team. Apparently 30 of 32 owners agreed with him. 

Fark 'em all!

Florence Bomb Scare

Florence, Alabama made some news outlets yesterday, but not in a good way.

Apparently, there was a bomb scare at the Florence Post Office on Seminary Street, and they called out the bomb squad because of a suspicious package.

Its contents turned out to be hot dogs!

Somebody lost a lot of hot dogs. Immediately, the Wildwood Tavern claimed that the hot dogs came from them. They do have an Atomic Dog.

To make things worse, Slate magazine referred to Florence as a "burg." That was a piss-poor insult!
