“People Are Going To Be Having Sex With Robots Within Five Years”

I recommend you read the article. It’s incredibly well written and it poses some very interesting ethical questions. Of course, since I’m an idiot, the only question I ended up asking myself when I finished reading it was: If we are having sex with robots in five years, which robot would you want to have sex with? After some careful consideration, I decided to go with Rosie from The Jetsons (she was always so accomodating.) Or Optimus Prime. I guess I’ll know in 2011. How about you?

  • James Blunt’s You’re Beautiful song brings a girl out of a coma. But for every one person he wakes, he puts another 500 in a coma.
  • Katie Couric’s absence from The Today Show hasn’t hurt its ratings. And it’s done wonders for the general vibe of the office.
  • Bruce Willis sues paparazzi who claims the star attacked him. And if a lawsuit doesn’t scare him, maybe this fist will.
  • Vince Vaughn invited parents to a nude sex shoot with Aniston. To help with the chemistry.
  • Jeremy Piven tells Cubs fans to “Hug it out, you little bitches.” Also says it to taxi driver, rabbi, talk show host, dog and anyone who doesn’t recognize him.
  • Pete Doherty fined for cocaine use. That should scare him straight.

5 Reasons Why Joel Madden’s Like an Olsen Twin (Pre-Puberty)

by

dsc52253qx.jpgSure Joel Madden’s got the sleeves of tattoos and a brother with droopy eye makeup. And yes he’s got a tricked-out mack truck with 50-inch rims and a couple of 10-pound diamond studded pendants and a pit bull and two lip piercings oh, and a wristband with a skull on it. But when it comes down to it, the Good Charlotte singer has a lot more in common with one of the pre-pubescent, straight-to-video, squeaky clean Olsen Twins circa 1996 (and Ashley at that).

PROPPED: NewsHour Birthday Party

by

jim lehrer.JPGWhen I was 3-years-old I’m pretty sure the theme of my birthday party was GI Joe. That sounds about right. Well, when Henry Schally turned 3, he went in a different direction– a dorky, dorky direction. Henry happens to be a huge fan of NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS, so his parents threw him a NewsHour themed party. Check out this video dropped by Vandar02. It’ll make you want to start beating the kid now to help him get accustomed to the inevitable beatings he’ll receive in high school.

ICYMI: Switzerland Pimps Out Its Men

by

swiss.JPGLooking for the perfect place to throw a bachelorette party? If Chippendales is booked, you may want to book a trip to Switzerland. According to their new tourism campaign, a new breed of shirtless Swiss men who aim to please have been bred just in time for the World Cup. The country is pimping out the male half of their population in order to get more female visitors during the soccer season. Check out this commercial on their website, which features all sorts of calendar guys milking udders, holding thick ropes and fondling rakes in an attempt to make you associate Switzerland with penises hardworkers. The tagline promises that Swiss men will spend “less time on football and more time on you.” But does that mean they’re going to also spend less time blowing on horns and shouting Ricola? That may be too high a price to pay.
