Hello my little gingersnaps! Did you miss me? I missed me too.  Sorry I’ve been incognito of late. I will work on that. Mr. G got me a brand new MacBook this week, so I have NO excuses to miss my Weekly Entertainment Reviews! Since we last talked I’ve been to Louisiana and San Francisco.  Louisiana was a trip to visit the in-laws, and San Francisco was for pleasure… specifically attending another Author Signing event.  You know what that means… I’ve got a signed paperback to give away.  This one is a USA Today Bestselling Love Story that you don’t want to miss. It is called Love, in English by Karina Halle.


TRUST ME.  Just hop on over to The Spank and Ginger Show on Monday to enter. Winner will be announced on Friday.  Now… let’s go on to the news…

celebSo we all know Ben Affleck has been banging the nanny “allegedly”, took her to Vegas with him sans kids on his private jet, letting her take all the selfies she wanted, which she shared with her girlfriends, etc.  But that’s not the issue here.  The issue here is that whoever wrote this article about him spending his birthday weekend in Atlanta, said that he was wearing a “dragon printed baseball cap”.  Uh, what in the actual hell? That is NOT a dragon, idjit! THAT, is a direwolf, the sigil of the House Stark of Winterfell, from Game of Thrones.  You know, “Winter is Coming” and all that? Whoever wrote this article needs to step down and educate themselves on the wonder that is Game of Thrones before they get back to writing articles for a celebrity gossip website.

By the way, Star magazine may not be known as the most credible sources, but they had someone follow around the nanny and listen in on her phone conversations talking about how Ben texted her from Atlanta saying that while he loves her, he just can’t be with her right now with everything like it is.  And also how she didn’t want to go to the Bahamas, but he talked her into it.  She was poolside at the $3700/night Hotel Bel-Air during her phone calls, so I wouldn’t exactly say she’s laying low. You can read all about it, and see the iPhone ninja pics here.

Hairdresser Gives Woman Bad Haircut, Woman Destroys Salon With A Sledgehammer



A woman in Southeast Asia was apparently pretty pissed off about her shitty haircut, and decided to redecorate the salon that gave it to her with her sledgehammer. As you do.

We’ve all had bad haircuts. Smiling and nodding as the hairdresser turns you into a deformed mass of mullet and sideburns. It’s the polite thing to do.

Apparently, this woman didn’t get the memo as she goes hell-for-leather in the salon that gave her the dodgy cut. She smashes mirrors and cabinets before turning on the staff of the salon and threatening them, presumably asking to have her hair glued back on.


I think the lesson learned here is: Don’t give haircuts to women that come in holding sledgehammers.

Product of the week


I’ve just added a new category to my weekend reviews.  We needed a “Product of the Week”.  Most of them will probably be awesome ideas, such as this one, but I purposefully kept adjectives away from the title so that I’m free to post really bad ideas as well.

Format: Paperback
As the father of two teenagers, I found this book invaluable. I’m sure other parents here can empathize when I say I shudder at the thought of the increasing presence of huge ships in the lives my children. I certainly remember the strain I caused so long ago for my own parents when I began experimenting with huge ships. The long inter-continental voyages that kept my mom and dad up all night with worry. Don’t even get me started on the international protocols when transporting perishable cargo. To think, I was even younger than my kids are now! huge ships are everywhere and it doesn’t help that the tv and movies make huge ships seem glamorous and cool. This book helped me really approach the subject of huge ships with my kids in an honest and non judgmental way. Because of the insights this book provided, I can sleep a little better and cope with the reality that I can’t always be there to protect my kids from huge ships, especially as they become adults. I’m confident that my teens, when confronted by a huge ship, are much better prepared to make wiser decisions than I did. At the very least my children certainly know that they can always come to me if they have any concerns, questions or just need my support when it comes to the topic of huge ships.







A true story. A couple on an African Safari witnessed a small antelope being chased by a cheetah. The wife told the husband, “If the antelope survives this, I’ll give you a blow job every day for the rest of your life..” Watch to the end.

WTF of the weekNo, just no.

New South Korean Café Is Devoted Entirely to … Poop


Poop has never been this adorable.

A South Korean café called 또옹카페  which translates as “Poop Café” just opened in Seoul, and it’s swiftly winning over our fragile hearts.

“It’s seen as a normal cafe in Korea. I would say the ‘cute poop’ theme is very popular throughout Asia […] I wouldn’t say it’s pushing boundaries. I think it’s just difference in culture. I am a Westerner, but even it brings me a lot of laughter,” British expat Ken Kum Lee told Mashable.


The poop motif featured in the café, which resembles the beloved poop emoji, are elaborately swirled on lattes. And, to take the metaphor even further, the café serves hot beverages out of adorable little toilet cups.


A poop-centric café was a long time coming, seeing as America’s first toilet-themed café opened in 2013 (toilet-themed restaurants have been a fixture in Asia for years), and poop was the only logical next step. Disney World even started selling poop-shaped desserts earlier this year.

The café even offers goofy poop-shaped hats for patrons to wear. Too far? Never.

This lady is winning at life.



And that’s all the time I have for you today.  Don’t forget to check back on Monday at The Spank and Ginger Show so you can enter the giveaway for Love, in English by Karina Halle. At the San Francisco event, I had to stand in line for 45 minutes, just to get this book signed for my giveaway.  I’m telling you… this book is the book that put her on the map. Until next time, I leave you with this very important bit of information…

  1. Seriously! Who in their right mind allows a hottie mchotterson to be their nanny? Our nanny was an older, very round woman whose kids had already grown. THAT’s who you pick to be your nanny!

  2. This was hilarious (as always) and thank you for pointing out that it is a direwolf, and not a dragon. Also, I would like to point out that this means Batman is Team Stark. This is probably the most important thing we can take from the situation.

    Also, it would have been great to see a photo of the new nanny, though I suspect she closely resembles Nanny McPhee.

  3. I’m guilty of saying “thank you” even when I didn’t like my hair except for the time my hairdresser dyed my hair black. WTF? I’m a ginger. Don’t mess with my hair color thankyouverymuch, unless you’re adding purple. She tried to fix it and it looked like someone dropped a bowl of strawberries on my head. AND SHE IS MY AUNT! That’s the last time I had her touch my hair. #truestory And cafe devoted to poo? I don’t get it. Eating and poo do not go hand in hand. E.coli people. Run away! Run away!

  4. Hey if I’ve got a bad hairdo, you bet I’m going to be pissed at the hairdresser! Totally justified!

    I’m sorry, WHY is there a cafe devoted to poop?!?! That’s a head scratcher.

We LOVE comments!
