Monday = Blue,

(I guess they don’t bake bread on Wednesday).  So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)!  The colors go alphabetically by color Blue – Green – Red – White – Yellow  –  Monday through Saturday.  Very easy to remember.

Carnation Milk

The next time you open a can of Carnation evaporated milk for your recipes, just smile and think of this little old lady from North Carolina who had worked in and around her family dairy farms since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work and little compensation.

When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores, she read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan/rhyme beginning with “Carnation Milk is best of all.” She sent in her entry, and about a week later, a black limo drove up in front of her house. A man got out and said, ” Carnation ‘LOVED’ your entry so much, that even though we will not be able to use it, we are here to award you a consolation prize of $1000 that we’ve made available just for the originality of your entry.

Here is her original entry:-

Carnation milk is best of all,
No tits to pull, no hay to haul
No buckets to wash, no shit to pitch,
Just poke a hole in that son-of-a-bitch.

Darwin Awards Take A Back Seat To The American Legal System!!!

 Time once again to review the winners of the Annual  “Stella Lawsuit Awards.”

The Stella Awards are named after 81 year-old Stella Liebeck, who spilled hot coffee on herself and successfully sued McDonald’s. That case inspired the Stella Lawsuit Awards for the most frivolous, ridiculous, stupid, but successful lawsuits in the United States.

Here are this year’s winners…….

5th Place (tie):
-Kathleen Robertson of Austin, Texas, was awarded $80,000, by a jury of her peers, after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running inside a furniture store. The owner of the store was understandably surprised at the verdict, considering the misbehaving little toddler was Ms. Robertson’s own son.

-19-year-old Carl Truman of Los Angeles won $74,000 and medical expenses when his neighbor ran over his hand with a Honda Accord. Mr. Truman apparently didn’t notice there was someone at the wheel of the car when  he was trying to steal the car’s hubcaps.

-Terrence Dickson of Bristol, Pennsylvania, was leaving a house he had just finished robbing, by way of the garage. He was not able to get the garage door to go up since the automatic door opener was malfunctioning. He couldn’t re-enter the house because the door connecting the house and garage locked when he pulled it shut. The family was on vacation, and Mr. Dickson found himself locked in the garage for eight days. He subsisted on a case of Pepsi he found, and a large bag of dry dog food. He sued the homeowner’s insurance claiming the situation caused him undue mental anguish. The jury agreed, to the tune of $500,000.

In my opinion, this is so outrageous that it should have been 2nd place!

4th Place:
-Jerry Williams of Little Rock, Arkansas, was awarded $14,500 and medical expenses after being bit on the buttocks by his next door neighbor’s beagle. The beagle was on a chain in its owner’s fenced yard. The award was less than what Mr. Williams sought because the jury felt the dog might have been just a little provoked at the time by Mr. Williams, who had climbed over the fence into the yard and was shooting it repeatedly with a pellet gun.

3rd Place:
-A Philadelphia restaurant was ordered to pay Amber Carson of  Lancaster, Pennsylvania, $113,500 after she slipped on a soft drink and broke her tailbone. The beverage was on the floor because Ms. Carson had thrown it at her boyfriend 30 seconds earlier during an argument.

2nd Place:
-Kara Walton of Claymont, Delaware, successfully sued the owner of a night club in a neighboring city when she fell from the bathroom window to the floor and knocked out her two front teeth. This occurred while Ms. Walton was trying to sneak through the window in the ladies room to avoid paying the $3.50 cover charge. She was awarded $12,000 and dental expenses.

1st Place:
-This year’s runaway winner was Mrs. Merv Grazinski of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Mrs. Grazinski purchased a brand new 32-foot winnebago motor home. On her first trip home, having driven onto the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the driver’s seat to go into the back to make herself a sandwich. Not surprisingly, the RV left the freeway, crashed an d overturned. Mrs. Grazinski sued Winnebago for not advising her in the owner’s manual that she couldn’t actually do this. The jury awarded her $1,750,000 plus a new motor home. The company actually changed their manuals on the basis of this suit, just in case there were any other total morons around.

Um. Wow.

She’s Got the Look



I am not really sure how I feel about this show.

The premise of the show is to find the next face of fashion industry, with a twist. All of the woman competing are 35 or older who exudes sophistication, beauty and confidence.

I am all about upping the AGE (and SIZE) of the women typically shown in magazines and commercials. I am a fan of the “Real Women Look Like This” a quiet trend that seems to be slowly making its way into fashion.

The competition for ‘She’s Got The Look’ begins with a nationwide search, narrowing it down to twenty semi-finalists who are then flown to New York and immediately put to the test in their first ‘Photo Shoot’ where they must then face the judges.

Ten of the 25 ladies will be immediately sent home.

The ten remaining finalists remain in New York, where they will compete for the opportunity of a lifetime-a lucrative contract with Wilhelmina Models and a photo spread in SELF Magazine.

While I am *fully* behind the concept that any woman at any age can be fully beautiful. However, I did not like one of the commercials I saw for the show, wherein they make rude comment along the lines of “how can you put a woman over 35 in a bathing suit like that.” Um… I happen to know plenty of 35+ women who look better than any 25 year old. And AGE exudes more confidence naturally.

I will definitely be checking this out…with the high hopes of this TV show acting as a catalyst – the beginning of the possibly changing the face (and raising the bar) for what is considered an acceptable age and size of women round the world.

I will write a full review after I have watched a complete episode from beginning to end.

* Supermodel Kim Alexis, who has graced the cover of more than 500 magazines, will host She’s Got The Look. Supermodel Beverly Johnson, who made history as the first African-American model to grace the cover of American Vogue, celebrity stylist Robert Verdi and Wilhelmina President Sean Patterson will be featured as judges on the series

Trashy Summer Televison

Most of you know that outside of the Fox network, or All Things Dexter, I spend most of my television watching hours on the E! Channel. And this summer E! brings not one but two Trashy Television Treats my way.Lets get started shall we!

1. Denise Richards – It’s Complicated.


Okay. Okay. I know this isn’t something I should be watching. At. All. It’s absolutely awful. Literally despicable. But no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to look away. (And no. That’s not just because there is NOTHING else to watch on Sunday nights at 10pm.)

“Opening up her life for the first time Denise Richards lays it all on the line. Follow the high-profile star as she navigates Hollywood, romance and motherhood after a tumultuous year in the tabloids”

From what I saw, it was nothing but a bunch of Bad Choices, Bad Interviews, and even Bad Clothing. Um…Yeah. To be fair, I will give Denise Richards some credit for giving us a slice of the sought after T.M.I. But, so far all I can say is “Congratulations Denise, you some how made me feel sorry for Charlie Sheen.

Next Up? The show I have secretly been waiting for.

2 . Dina & Ali – Living Lohan


“Being a manager’s tough. Being a mom’s tougher. Follow Dina Lohan as she guides daughter Ali toward a shot at stardom.”

OMFG. Again, I know this isn’t something I should be watching. At. All. However, this comes on the E! Channel (directly after the above mentioned disaster at 1030 pm Sunday nights.)

Since I am slightly obsessed with Lindsay, I was curious to get a glimpse into the world from which she came. Dina? What can I say about Dina Lohan. Nothing Nice. That’s for sure. And Ali? Ali Lohan. I can’t believe she is only 14 years old. To quote my one of my favorite TV Host/Comedian/Writers Chelsea HandlerAli Lohan acts like an 85 year old woman from Boca Raton Florida.”

This family is a real live slow motion train wreck. I am fully amazed LINDSAY is even remotely capable of interacting with the rest of society. Let alone keeping a girlfriend.

To say that I am Horrified by Dina Lohan is an UNDERSTATEMENT.

“This is a family that knows how to roll with the punches and come out on top. Dina is an incredibly hard-working, passionate mom that I think our viewers will find both relatable and highly entertaining.”

* Translation *

This is a family that knows how to roll with the punches suffering from a long genetic history of metal illness and come out on top that is frightening for the general public to witness. Dina is an incredibly hard-working, passionate mom media whore psycho-path, vicariously living out her personal fantasies for fame and fortune by using her own children. I think our viewers will find the show both relatable repulsive . And highly entertaining alarming.”

Yep. I will be tuning in to THAT every Sunday night. Somehow after watching that Hot Mess going to work on Monday mornings doesn’t seem so bad!

What TRASHY SUMMER TV will YOU be watching?
