Put up your Dukes

By Libby

For those of you who are recovering from last night's festivities and want something more lighthearted for the holiday, Talking Points Memo issued their first annual Golden Duke Awards. Congratulations to the well-deserving winners.

Ten signs your country might be turning fascist. It's more amusing than it sounds.

I would have assumed this was a parody but after seeing awards for transsexuals in TV series and watching a dominatrix spank some willing volunteers on a regular cable station, I'm not so sure this isn't a real commercial. If it is real, I'm beginning to understand why the fundies are so upset about pop culture. Subtle, it's not. But I have to admit that I thought it was funny.

And for something really soothing and beautiful, pictures of Thailand.

Re the commercial, it's perfectly in keeping, tone-wise, with every other commercial I've seen for that product...

Amazing Syd. I don't watch much TV so I missed when sexual innuendo became so blantant.
