Friday Thoughts and Links


Your humble narrator is still in a bit of a haze.

Between the loss of John Hughes, the bizarro week of car-crashery for me, the extended afterglow of Monday’s epic HCwDB of the Week, I’m abuzz and atwitter.

Despite a week of personal injury, I am on the mend. The genius of the regs in the comments threads, as well as the daily emails of hottie/douchey pic submissions, kept me going and powered me through.

Thanks to everyone who has emailed the DB1, either to wish me recovery or simply to send in a pic for my consideration of mock. If I did not write back, I blame the power of the Smoot + Crystal unholy wrongness. It’s enough to slaughter puppies.

Here’s your Friday Links:

Mmmm… sexy Texas librarians. Sadly, this is one where the idea was far better than the execution. Yeesh. Better stick to my librarian fantasies and skip the real thing.

A RIP to the late, great Budd Schulberg, who passed away this week at the age of 95. Author of the brilliant What Makes Sammy Run?, one of the books that got me through high school, as well as movies like On the Waterfront, Schulberg is one of the greats. RIP.

Ladies, I’m all for you ditching your douchey husbands, but this might be a bit much.

While the song itself is kind of annoying, I heartily approve of its message: F@ck Ed Hardy.

Yet Ed Hardy is now branding underwear. We’re losing, people. We must keep mocking.

Supercool Winkytool. “Binky lieber meine winky”? Who knew Germans could be so funny? You know who didn’t know that Germans could be so funny? All of Europe.

Reader Eliza creates some hilarious fan art inspired by HCwDB: Douche Bugz. Nicely done, Eliza!

Speaking of Germany, how about some tasty Bavarian Ass Pear.

And if that’s not enough of a meal, here’s some Ass Pear Salad. You’ve earned it.

To get you through your Friday.
