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…
So 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.
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.
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.
No, 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.
