If the hot pink background, leopard print fonts, the glitterized statements or even LMFAO’s I’m Sexy and I Know it blaring in the background doesn’t render you speechless, perhaps her maybe-endearing-mostly-bizarre comments that her main inspiration is Legally Blonde’s fictional character, Elle Woods, will prompt a very solid facepalm as you realize THIS is what American politics has evolved into. And clearly this is why Mindy Meyer has also been trending in the US this week.
We still can’t decide whether Meyer, a 22-year-old, Orthodox Jewish woman attending law school at Touro College, is REALLY running for NY State Senate, or is part of a larger viral campaign that involves trolling the American political system.
Although with the amount of media coverage she’s received from notable media sources like CNN, ABC and New York Times it’s beginning to look more and more like Meyer is the real deal and she’s gonna fight to be “Diva of the District.”
For all we know, maybe she stands a chance in this day and age. Heck, if Elle Woods brought pink to Harvard, why couldn’t Meyer bring pink to the senate?
All I gotta say is I hold a bit of a soft spot for her cause: a) she’s not running for politics in Canada so thumbs up for that, and b) she makes a Hunger Games reference in her “Issues” section. That’s pretty hilarious in my books LOL
Yup you read it.
Infamous-because-of-his-pops North Korean
dictator leader, Kim Jong-Un, has popped up on a billboard in LA for AshleyMadison.com, reports LAist.com. For anyone who’s not familiar with Ashley Madison, it’s a dating site for…adulterers. In the biblical sense ;)
Ashley Madison is a brand that obviously has no problems pushing a few boundaries, so why not put a mug of Kim Jong-Un’s face on their latest ad? It was just recently announced that he was off the market, which is likely what put him as the front-runner as the newest poster boy.
And heck, as the billboard says: “Affairs Now Guaranteed…Even if you look like HIM.”
Look like who, an overweight Asian guy? Now wait…that’s not very nice.

OH SHIT! WOMEN HAVE BABIES NOW!?!?
Here’s the deal, if Yahoo! is progressive enough to hire a pregnant woman as their CEO, then they are probably down with whatever she’s going to bring to the table.
The funny thing about feminism is that it asks the general population to adopt progressive ways of thinking about women’s role in society. And sometimes that means respecting that a woman has the power of free will - so if Marissa Mayers wants to take 2 weeks or 1-year, that’s her choice.
It seems like people are just looking for something to complain about these days. It’s the Internet! Just do what most of us do, downvote some random stuff on reddit, make fun of the pedophiles on Habbo Hotel or if you’re really the lowest of the low, go comment on YouTube videos for sport.
See, I bet you’ve already forgotten that Marissa Mayers is duplicating her genetic code.
As usual, I was living it up on a Saturday night tweeting from @NatandMarie.
Street cred, yo. Street. Cred.
Then somewhere in between shot-gunning Faygo Red and eating the crumbs off of my shirt, @whats_Haapanan & @pewpewpew got me going on the best of the worst music videos on the web. A bossload of suggestions were made on Facebook - which are hilarious! How did Eurythmics make it on the list?
Anyway, here’s our picks for the first instalment of the Best of the Worst!
It looks like Thor’s taking his banishment pretty hard here…
I think I figured out why Al Qaeda hates America…
Tonetta. This was Epic Meal Time’s pick from Season 1. As Harley said it, “Toronto, this is your neighbour”…
Nat’s Viral Video pick from season 2 episode 11.
Dave Thomas looks like a mafia boss, and he wants to know “Why don’t you have Grill Skillz playing in your walkman?”
Is this worst Auto-Tune track/video of all time? Yeah, she’s mad that you forced her to be in this video.
WHY!? Why are you grinding on that ball? I think only @Grinditonthewin - I MEAN @Blameitonthewin
Riak is super nova superbad!
Yeah, I suck at staying loyal to a regular post. I have the attention span of a derpy cat.
So this is what I read today:
4. The Aurora shooting finally gives outlets late on Monday’s revelation that “reddit is the NEW new threat to news” a chance to make it sound new again.
So that’s it from me. later skater.
I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystanders’ faces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath. For one man, it was in the middle of a busy food court on a Saturday evening.
I say all the time that every moment we have to live our life is a blessing. So often I have found myself taking it for granted. Every hug from a family member. Every laugh we share with friends. Even the times of solitude are all blessings. Every second of every day is a gift. After Saturday evening, I know I truly understand how blessed I am for each second I am given.
I feel like I am overreacting about what I experienced. But I can’t help but be thankful for whatever caused me to make the choices that I made that day. My mind keeps replaying what I saw over in my head. I hope the victims make a full recovery. I wish I could shake this odd feeling from my chest. The feeling that’s reminding me how blessed I am. The same feeling that made me leave the Eaton Center. The feeling that may have potentially saved my life.” —Jessica Redfield (real last name: Ghawi) was shot and killed last night at a midnight screening of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ along with 11 others when a gunman opened fire in a theater. The above is from her blog, written in June, after she narrowly escaped another senseless shooting at a mall in Toronto. (via newsweek)
