A guy walks into a bar…

No, really.

Trashy neighborhood

May 21, 2009

The path of refuse below is not a rubbish-strewn road, but rather a floating mess that has choked a creek in an impoverished section of Manila, Philippines.  See more trashy pics at Deputy Dog.

A bridge too low

March 9, 2009

I’m not sure whether to blame the city (for not elevating the bridge deck) or the drivers (for not knowing the height of their vehicles and/or for not heeding the low clearance sign). For the number of times it’s been hit at high speed, this bridge is hanging in there.

Life’s filthy lessons

January 26, 2009

In the elephant world, “Don’t follow too close” is an important early lesson.

“Please don’t divorce us”

December 28, 2008

Not content with merely passing Prop 8 in California, some people are filing suit to invalidate the thousands of gay marriages that took place between the state’s Supreme Court ruling to end the ban on gay marriage last May and the passage of Prop 8.  Hilzoy has a few choice words for folks who have nothing better to do than tear down others’ loving marital bonds.  Maybe such people should actually see the faces of couples and families who would be impacted if the hateful lawsuit is successful.  It’s probably too much to expect hardened hearts to soften, but if these pictures from the Courage Campaign don’t do it, nothing will.

A farewell to W.

Ava Lowery put together this video montage of George W. Bush’s “greatest” moments to commemorate his impending retirement.

Tacky weddings

November 24, 2008

Tackyweddings.com is exactly what it sounds like: a site that shows pics and video from weddings that stretch or shatter the bounds of taste.  Recent posts seem to focus on UK “chav” weddings (chavs being the British equivalent of American douchebags, best I can tell).  I’ll be looking for some ghetto fabulous weddings, too.

A sad story of a hoarder

November 6, 2008

This is the one of the worst accounts I’ve seen of compulsive hoarding, a tendency to excessively accumulate possessions.  In this case a man was unable to throw anything out, and his home became a maze of refuse.  Unfortunately his story has a predictably tragic end.
