Friday Fun

Hey, it's March! This means that vile February is over, and St. Patrick's Day is coming soon. In honor of he who drove the snakes from Ireland and in celebration of The Departed's Best Picture win, here's:

I'm Shippin' Up To Boston, (mp3) by the Dropkick Murphys for your downloading pleasure.

Bonus Track: My favorite Pogues tune, Tuesday Morning (mp3)

I was just introduced to Wonkette a snarky, DC website along the lines of Defamer and Gawker, except they make fun of politicians instead of celebrities. A favorite target is Rick Santorum (or Rick Sanatorium, as he is known in some parts, i.e. my brain), the Pennsylvania Republican who lost his Senate seat in the last round of elections. Feast your eyes upon this glorious photo of Sanatorium giving his concession speech, with his family at his side.:

Aside from the son inadvertantly (or deliberately?) flipping the bird to the nation while pushing up his glasses, the crying daughter is holding a doll who is wearing the same dress that she is. You can see it better here. Good thing I didn't give up making fun of children for Lent.

Lastly, someone made a response to SNL's hilarious "Dick in a Box" video: My Box in a Box

She's crying because her dad won't let her get the HPV vaccine. Waaaaaah!

(um, just kidding. Maybe she's crying because he lost the election.)

I won't tell you what it means, but after Santorum pretty much blasted the gay community, they made a big effort to name something less than wonderful after him and work it into the lexicon. Needless to say, it's pretty tasteless, but if you look up "Santorum" in google, you be equal parts grossed out and amused.
