THE BRAVE AND THE OLD DEPT.

RUSSKIE BUSINESS DEPT.
Russian President Vladimir Putin isn’t exactly known for being warm, compassionate and cuddly. Even so, it’s shockingly disappointing that Putin has initiated a slew of measures designed to punish anyone in Russia who is homosexual, or merely in favor of gay rights. We’re pretty sure that you can’t eradicate homosexuality just by banning so-called gay “propaganda.” But on the off-chance it works, maybe Putin can try passing some laws that would make it illegal to be a close-minded, ignorant hate-monger.
BURGER ZING DEPT.
Fast-food employees across the county are walking off the job this week to protest their lousy pay, though it doesn’t seem likely their demands for more money will be met. Which makes sense: Fast-food chains have many more important priorities than paying employees a living wage.
When asked by a reporter recently what he’d do if he found out a priest was gay, Pope Francisanswered, “Who am I to judge?” The Pontiff’s refreshing non-condemning tone was welcomed by many and may have set the stage for the Holy Father to do further outreach to the gay community.
LIVING IN CINEMA DEPT.
THE TERROR OF THEIR WAYS DEPT.
THE ZIM REAPER DEPT.
With his acquittal behind him and no gainful means of employment, self-appointed neighborhood watch aficionado George Zimmerman suddenly has lots of free time on his hands. How to fill up the day? Well, it turns out George Z is a very busyman…
THE LITTLE SEARCH ENGINE THAT COULDN’T DEPT.
This morning, portions of the southwest were unable to access Google and all its services (Gmail, Google Plus, YouTube, etc). And while it only lasted about an hour, that was plenty of time for people to overreact (and rush to be the first to Tweet about the difficulties of Googling “Why is Google down?” Hilarious!) Once the smoke cleared and things were back on track, we decide to take a look at the most common Google searches on the near-Armageddon.
TURN YOUR HEAD AND COFFEE DEPT.
Despite the fact that coffee prices are way down, in a “screw-you” to their customers, Starbucks obnoxiously raised prices today. We think it’s fitting then that they provide a new cup for their overrated Joe.
