The A-Rod Saga

This A-Rod saga is getting interesting. They’re saying the MLB allowed him to take steroids because his body was producing a low amount of testosterone… which incidentally is a direct result of taking steroids for long periods of time, but that’s beside the point. The point is, the MLB admitted to allowing him to legally take testosterone in 2007, which led to him hitting 54 HRs and getting a huge 275 million dollar contract from the Yankees. So in other words… if I’m the Yankees, I’m going to argue that I was fooled into offering a player a contract based on performance levels he couldn’t possibly sustain because the MLB revoked his “permission” to take testosterone right after he was signed. I’m obviously looking into my crystal ball on this one, but I think all indications are that the Yankees will have a solid case here to ditch his contract if they use that angle. You, the MLB, allowed him to achieve false production, to which we then offered him a contract based on that false production, therefore we were misled into a contract based on false premises.

The MLB is obviously going to try to cover their own ass and say they did it for “medical” or “therapeutic use exemption" purposes, and they’d be smart not to fight any such (above mentioned) claims by the Yankees, because that would be shooting themselves in the foot by putting themselves under the spotlight and the scrutiny of a court. Not only would that be bad publicity, but it could also backfire in a big way if testimony proves that they did it for (obvious) other reasons, or even open up the possibility of numerous other players blowing the whistle on them… so I can easily see this playing out where they just go along with it and void out his Yankee contract, which would mean we’d (thankfully) never see A-Rod in pinstripes again.

Again, I’m obviously speculating, but the Yankees would be fools not to pursue that angle, and the MLB would be fools to fight it to any serious degree because that would just inevitably incriminate themselves. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out. Or, better yet, if it does play out like this… which teams, if any, will be foolish enough to offer him a contract next year when his suspension ends and he’ll be a 40 year old steroid-less unproductive has been who has burned his bridge with the Player’s Association. If this scenario does happen to unfold, never mind just the Yankees… his entire MLB career could be over.

Twitter Dictionary & Literal Translations

FF - Originally stood for “Follow Friday,” which was designated as a day people could suggest a COUPLE of their favorite people to follow. It was very useful as it turned people on to excellent tweeters they didn’t know about, but quickly got shot to hell by people “FFing” 80 people at once, so every Friday turned out to be 8 million FFs that nobody paid any fucking attention to.

Thanks for the cup. FF Joe Schmoe (Joe Shmoe’s Favstar Link)  - An entirely generic response to receiving a fake trophy which insincerely tells everyone to follow that person just because they gave you said fake trophy. Literal translation: Follow Friday Joe Schmoe (even though it’s Tuesday) just because they gave me a fake trophy, and if I post this generic thank you maybe they’ll give me another fake trophy again some time.

Star - Originally intended as a way to show people you read and genuinely enjoyed their tweet… but somehow turned into something 90% of Twitter just slaps on every tweet on their timeline, whether they even read or enjoyed it or not, for no other reason than to receive the reciprocal stars back in return, whether they read or enjoyed YOUR tweet or not. The ultimate offenders go to someone’s Favstar page and star the last 20 tweets they posted, without even reading them, for no other reason than to get that person to go to THEIR Favstar page and star THEIR last 20 tweets to give them some sort of false sense of validation or popularity.

RT - Originally intended for tweets that were so funny or clever you wanted to share the humor or brilliance with other people… but somehow turned into a way for 90% of Twitter to do just the opposite by calling attention to THEMSELVES, rather than the actual tweet or tweeter, for no other reason than to get that person to star and RT their own tweets. The worst offenders will RT the same person 20 times in a row, regardless of how stupid or meaningless their tweets are. It’s also used by desperate creepy men who somehow think RTing the same girl 20 times in a row is somehow going to make her sleep with him.

;) - 90% of Men: I want to fuck you. 90% of Women: Whatever dude, just keep starring my tweets. The other 10%: Used to highlight a clever or sarcastic quip, implying that it’s mutually understood.

XOXO - Literal translation: Kiss hug kiss hug. Used by Men: I want to fuck you… AND… I have pink flowers on my underwear. Used by Women: Whatever dude, just keep starring my tweets.

<3 - The symbol for a heart. Literal translation: Less than 3. Used by Men: I want to fuck you… AND… I masturbate to your pictures often… with the neck of a beer bottle in my ass. Used by Women: Whatever dude, just keep starring my tweets.

I love all my followers  - Generic phrase used to kiss ass to attract attention. Literal translation: I have no idea what love is, so I’m just saying this so you’ll star and RT me.

I’m a model - Literal translation: I take pictures of myself with a toilet in the background.

I’m a writer - Literal translation: I have a blog.

I’m a comedian - Literal translation: I think my tweets are funny.

Comedians and people with upcoming cancer benefits or charity events please read this:

To all my comedian friends….

If you send me YouTube clips of any of your performances, I’ll post them on both the Comedians for Cancer Facebook page and the Comedians for Cancer Twitter page. (Roughly 17,000 followers combined and counting.) In addition, if you let me know your Twitter handle, I will also occasionally RT some of your tweets onto the Comedians for Cancer Twitter page… as well as post performance dates and times on both the C4C Facebook and Twitter page as well, so feel free to inbox me those as well. Especially if you have a Facebook post about them already, because hitting the share button for the C4C Facebook page only takes a second.

And for those of you who aren’t aware of how Comedians for Cancer works… it’s a network of currently over 1500 comedians across North America. When someone contacts me with a cancer benefit or charity event, I then relay that event’s time, date, and location to the network of comedians, and anybody who is in that area and is free do a set can offer up their services for that event. There’s more to it than that on my end, including hospital visits, gift gathering during holidays, fundraising, setting up private events, etc… but as the actual supporting comedians, you don’t have to worry about any of that, I take care of all that on my end. Just being in the network helps, and gives you the opportunity to perform at benefits and charities across the country if you so choose when they arise. As a result of being in the network, I refer you back to the first paragraph where I do my best to help promote your private careers by posting your videos, clips, promos, tweets, appearances, or show dates across the C4C social media network. So feel free to inbox me those things, as well as your Twitter handle… and I’ll be sure to help spread them out there for you. Comedians for Cancer has currently provided comedians for over 15 benefits and charity events, but I’d like to see that number jump considerably… so the more I put you guys/gals out there, the more aware people with upcoming events will be of our existence and services… therefore the more requests and opportunities to perform for a great cause we’ll get.

An Open Letter to an Arachnid

Dear Spider On The Ceiling,

What the fuck are you doing up there? There’s no food… no web… no mate… nothing. You just sit there and do absolutely nothing for hours. The only thing keeping you alive is my laziness… and the fact that you haven’t moved, because that would totally overrule the laziness thing. Maybe you’re aware of that. Jesus Christ… you’re a mind reading spider, aren’t you? You know if you move I’ll get up off my ass and kill you. Ok, that’s impressive… but this is getting weird now.

Sincerely,

SPLAT

Burger Pie: I don&#8217;t know if this is a thing or not&#8230; at least like this anyway&#8230; but it is now. It&#8217;s basically just one big stuffed hamburger. Slap a layer of hamburger in a pie dish&#8230; cover it with all sorts of shit like a pizza&#8230; then put another layer of hamburger over it and pinch the sides closed&#8230; and voila&#8230; a delicious slice of triangular heart attack awaits you.
