Hurricane Gustav: We’re Stupidly Over It

Set your sophomoric joke phasers to stun

That’s my mom’s house… You done yet? Because my mom is a really nice lady and probably didn’t deserve that. Grow up.

Hurricane Gustav roared ashore Monday and made “landfall” in Cocodrie, Louisiana down the bayou near Houma and Port Fouchon. I’ve been to these places – small Louisiana towns out at the end of a dirt road that some oil company or shimp boat captain built way down some chenier or levee. The hurricane turned northward and pounded Baton Rouge harder than LSU fans pound Abita at a tailgate. My brother reported that 94mph winds were recorded at his office at Dow. Trees were down, power was out, and roads were impassible; my father couldn’t even go check on Ms. Sarah because of power lines.

Microsoft's Mojave Experiment Teaser Page

How does Handsome do it? How can we already be over something that hasn’t launched yet? First of all, knowledge isn’t just power, it’s Handsome. We found out about the Mojave Experiment from a Twitter feed we follow (check out our 140 character rants if you’re up to it) and did a little research about its origins. Microsoft ran a program where users tried the new Windows ‘Mojave’ operating system, but (gotcha!) it’s just Vista. And apparently, the test subjects liked it.

We’re over it. Listen Microsoft, Vista sucks, but it’s not just Vista that did it. (Read on …)

Brett Favre: We Are Officially Over It

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

This is the first in an ongoing series of things we’re over. Why are we over them? Because they’re ugly, they’re embarassing, they’re out of context, or they’re all around offensive. Enjoy.

Whiny bitches not allowed at training camp

Whiny bitches are not allowed at training camp

Despite the fact that should a certain member’s girlfriend ever find this point it could be grounds for termination, we are officially over Brett Favre. It all started with a heartfelt, teary-eyed retirement speech shortly after the Giants (who had defeated the Packers in a crushing, last minute win in the division championships) won their surpirse victory over the Patriots. I don’t care who you are, everyone has to feel for a Super Bowl-winning Old Yeller getting put out to pasture.

Then the rumors started… but these were expected, right? Nothing was going on in the NFL and a little old fashioned rumor mongering about a great-but-now-”retired” quarterback makes for good news when nothing is going on and the NBA playoffs haven’t started yet. In recent weeks you can’t turn on ESPN without coming across another ridiculous story about whether or not Favre would show up to training camp or what his value as an old man is on the market.
