A Relentless Media Message That They're Inferior Certainly Couldn't Have Anything To Do With It


"This morning, we'll take a journey inside the minds of men... if there's anything there. I'm teasing, I'm teasing."
-- Katie Couric, Today, 1/12/06

"Boys used to be at the head of the class, but now they're lagging way behind girls. We'll tell you why boys aren't making the grade."
-- Katie Couric, Today, 1/23/06

(and if you think this is new:
"Though we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stupid!"

I hate girls that think boys are stupid. Boys rule. If I hear one more chick say that boys are dumb, I'll punch her in the vagina!

Hey, Katie has a lot of opinions for an "impartial" (and inept) Teleprompter reader!

Katie's angry because the whole world has caught on to her wicked witchiness, and despite bajillions of dollars, her Today Show makeup still looks terrible.

Ellen, that NY Post article is hilarious. For those of you who didn't see it, Amy Fisher, Joey Buttafuoco, and Mary Jo Buttafuoco are shopping around a TV reunion special. OY! It's too bad there's no "Deprived of Oxygen" network. My favorite sentence is the one about Mary Jo's agent being -- wait for it -- Sherri Spillane. Of course!!! Who else??

As for the hat tip, thank you! And as for that picture, I wanted to dive through the screeen for a nosh!!

Too many women in New York opt for a style of makeup I call Raccoon Chic: eyeliner painted thick completely surrounding each eye, eyelashes gathered into several black Ed Grimley darts. It looks ludicrous to everyone else.

And Lisa, until it was discontinued, "Vagina Punch" was the least popular flavor of Crystal Light.
