Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!

My kind of gentleman's club!

You may have heard that they're playing a football game not too far from my house this weekend (okay, it's probably 30 miles from my house, but it's closer than it's ever been to where I live). I haven't had much to say about the game, because I expect the cheating team that's not from Boston to beat the snotty team that's not from New York rather easily (I'm talking at least three touchdowns, maybe more if the cheating team's coach is feeling chippy), but it has been interesting to observe the media blitz from relatively close, as everyone has descended on Scottsdale (where the game is not being played) and Phoenix (where the game is not being played) to hang out and do their shows (if you've seen any ESPN this week, you've seen swanky Scottsdale). Of course, it's been pretty chilly here this week, but I still want all the media types to shut up about how cold they are in 55-degree sunny weather. Yes, it's in the 40s in the morning. Yes, it was overcast early in the week. It's still better than Connecticut in late January. And yes, I can't believe I'm defending the land that I loathe. See what these media types do to me?

Anyway, the newspaper has been full of advertisements for all sorts of Super Bowl™-related items. I'm not sure how it is in the rest of the country, but here in the heartland, strip clubs advertise almost exclusively in the sports section. We all know that if you like sports, you must love strip clubs, and if you like sports, there's no way you're a woman, so of course that's where they advertise! Earlier this week I was perusing the sports section, as is my wont, and I spotted this ad:

Yes, it's a strip club trying to align itself with the Big Game, more specifically the New Jersey Giants. However, that's not what caught my eye. Check out what kind of women they have for your viewing pleasure:

"Plus 3 fat ones." Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Okay, ignoring the fact that it's horribly sexist and demeaning, implying that heavier women can't possibly be beautiful, you still have to love a few things: one, that they're honest; and two, that they recognize that some people don't ascribe to the "standard" definition of beauty. In their own offensive way, this strip club is making progress!

I may have mentioned that I've never been to a strip club in my life. I've never had much of an opportunity or even the interest. However, if that's your thing, you can't go wrong with a place that advertises this way!

As for the game ... I don't want either team to win. The thought of Eli Manning winning a Super Bowl™ before Donovan McNabb and the Eagles makes me gag with hatred, and I don't want to see the Cheaters go unbeaten. However, I never had too big a problem with the Cheaters before, you know, they cheated, so I guess I want them to win. I just can't root for an NFC East team that's not Philadelphia. I cannot!

Look at all most of the games the Pats played in the 2nd half of the season - Indy, Philly, Balt, and both teams that play in NJ - and none of them were beaten by 3 TDs. Sure I'm rooting for the Giants, but no way they lose by more than 14. (And they COULD win.)

True, sir, but that was in crappy weather. It's supposed to rain here tomorrow, but they'll just close the roof, and the Cheaters will have a fast track and perfect conditions, which they didn't have for the last two months or so. Plus, the whole Spygate thing has come up again, and that's sure to piss the Cheaters off. I'm not rooting for either team, and in a perfect world, I would love to see the Giants win, but I just can't see them coming close. They played the game of their lives in the regular season finale, at home (and yes, I know they're a better road team, but still), and they lost. This New England team has had two weeks to prepare for them, and the conditions will be optimal. And I'm still not sold on Eli. I hate to say it, but I still think it will be a 3-touchdown win. Blech.
