News Story Of The Day: Intern Hopes To Walk In Space

I don't usually post this many Onions in a week but this one made me laugh out loud.

I can't tell you how many interns just like this that I met when I worked at that Big TV Company. They'd come in not knowing how to write a decent line of promo copy, spend half a day on a shoot and another half in an edit suite, most of both on the phone, talking to their little girlfriend or boyfriend back at college, and then the next day they'd proclaim, "I think I'm ready to produce now. When can I start?"

"Right now," I'd reply, tossing them my keys and a bucket."Go produce a clean car for me, Fucko."

Classic Movie Scene Of The Day: Flair

Since we were just talking about this...

Good god how I love this movie. LOVE it. My friend Erika does not, but I don't think she saw it all the way through. Watch it again, girl.

You probably know this but that's Mike Judge playing the manager. Listen to him talk and you'll hear Hank Hill in there, and even a little Butt-head.

News Story Of The Day: Non-MILFs In Debt For Calendar

Ouch. From Asylum.com.

Spanish Mothers in Debt After Nude Fund-Raising Calendar

Seven middle-aged Spanish mothers who posed for a tongue-in-cheek nude calendar - a fundraiser for their children's tiny, rural school - are now saddled with debt and 5,000 unwanted copies.

One of the photos shows the mothers with Christmas tinsel as their only garb - no private parts on view. Other goofy poses include a shotgun-toting mother wearing only a fox pelt and kneeling on a table, and another shows a woman covering her body with a red umbrella on a picnic table.

A group of British women made more than a million pounds and worldwide headlines when they came up with the idea of a discreet nude calendar for 2000 to raise money for leukemia research. Their story was made into a hit movie, "Calendar Girls."In Spain, the photos came out as calendars in November and at first proved to be a big hit. But the plan fizzled.

The women acknowledge being rank amateurs in publishing and advertising, and because of a miscue with a distributor they missed out on the Christmas shopping rush. Now, sales of the $8 calendar have dried up and they owe a printer nearly $16,000.

"The sad part for us is figuring out what to do with them because it is not something you can recycle," said Rosa Garin, 36, one of the models in Serradilla del Arroyo, a village of 400 people in northern Salamanca province.

Photobombers Of The Day

Photobombers = people who hilariously ruin your nice little picture. Some call it "that guy"; we call it photobombing. A superb idea from Jocelyn; all photos from Facebook.
