Octomom is Octo-Bankrupt


h1 Monday, April 30th, 2012

Nadya “Octomom” Suleman filed for bankruptcy today one month after going on welfare. I hope that includes her busted-ass plastic surgery. No one should pay to look that bad. Says TMZ,

Nadya Suleman filed for Chapter 7 today in federal court — a month after going on welfare — meaning she’s hopelessly buried in a mountain of debt.

Chapter 7 is the most serious form of bankruptcy — it’s basically when you go belly up — something Octo is well-familiar with.

The legal docs we obtained do not specify her creditors or how much she owes — but it’s pretty clear … she’s dead broke.

It’s pretty sad, really. I bet she was planning on making it big with a reality show or something with her passel of children, but now she’s on welfare and bankrupt. Someone should make her a shirt that says, “I Gave Birth to 8 Babies At Once, and All I Got Was This Shirt and 8 Babies”. It’s poetic justice at its finest.

Mad Men Episode 507: The Fairly CodParents


h1 Monday, April 30th, 2012

This week’s Mad Men episode, “At The Codfish Ball” (titled after Captain Hook’s screams) featured not only a return appearance by grown-up Alex Mack, now a series regular, but also her character’s father, who just so happened to be Leland Palmer, the relentlessly-f***ed-up father from Twin Peaks (aka actor Ray Wise).

Needless to say, anyone who’s watched Twin Peaks had the same semi-shocked reaction last night:

I’ve enjoyed pretty much every episode of this Mad Men season so far, and this week’s episode was no different, highlighting one of the aspects of Mad Men that the series does particularly (and unfortunately) well: Showing the characters’ unparallelled abilities to find a reason to be depressed in the midst of complete joy.

We have four concurrent, happy-turned-depressing stories:

Story #1: Abe asks Peggy to move in with her, and Peggy reacts with hushed excitement because 1) She thought a proposal might’ve been coming, and 2) Her mother absolutely won’t approve (what is this, the sixties?) I partly blame Peggy’s unhappiness on Joan’s terrible advice that when a man insists on a dinner, it’s usually for a proposal or a breakup; personally, I’ve insisted on hundreds of dinners in my lifetime, often involving significant others, and all with the primary motivation of really wanting dinner.

Story #2: Megan finally sells the nearly-lost Heinz account by coming up with her own idea and tag-team-pitching it with Don, but she’s still unable to celebrate unselfconsciously in front of Peggy, and her father interprets her advertising success as further evidence of her giving up on her acting dreams. Does any literary character not have an excruciating relationship with their father? If I told my dad the equivalent good news about my job, he’d be like “Good job!” then we’d talk about the NFL Draft for 20 minutes. Does the “Reasonable dad who says ‘cool’ then just talks about stuff” character exist in any dramatic tv shows / novels / father’s day cards? I guess when you’ve pushed your wife towards servicing strangers at a blacktie party behind one easily-openable double-door, it’s easy to lash out.

Story #3: Don accepts an award from the American Cancer Society and finally gets to shove some moral-goodwill into his wife’s advertising-unapproving parents’ faces, but is then informed at the end of the episode that no big businesses will actually hire him after how he stabbed American Tobacco in the back. Hang in there, Don! If I remember my history, Mohawk Airlines will become the world’s biggest airline by 1970 then change its name to Wal-Mart and only continue to grow.

Story #4: And of course, Sally gets to dress up, wear makeup (briefly), and schmooze with adults, then ultimately witnesses the horrifying, immature underbelly of the people she’s admired and been taught to obey. I experienced the same “Adults may not always be right” epiphany when an aunt asked me “You ever seen that According To Jim show? He’s pretty sick, but he’s hilarious.” I still think my moment was more horrifying.

Mad Men Episode 507 thoughts? Favorite / least favorite parts? Thoughts on Season 5 so far? Examples of happy paternal relationships in dramatic tv / literature? Leave ‘em all in the comments.

Dentist Removes All Of Her Ex-Boyfriend’s Teeth In Possible Slight Overreaction


h1 Monday, April 30th, 2012

A dentist in Wroclaw, Poland is facing up to three years in prison for removing all of her ex-boyfriend’s teeth when he came to her practice with a routine toothache:

“I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions. “But when I saw him lying there I just thought, ‘What a bastard’ and decided to take all his teeth out,” she admitted.

Toothless cabbie Marek said: “She told me my mouth was numb and I wouldn’t be able to feel anything for a while and that the bandage was there to protect the gums, but that I would need to see a specialist.

“I didn’t have any reason to doubt her, I mean I thought she was a professional. But when I got home I looked in the mirror and couldn’t f***ing believe it. The b**ch had emptied my mouth.”

Sure, this might seem a bit extreme, but who among us HASN’T wanted to remove all of an exes’ teeth after they left us for another woman/man? Actually, come to think of it, I’ve never even come close to thinking that. That’s insane, even by “exaggerated jealousy” standards. I was just trying to blindly devil’s advocate her case, because it IS a little funny, even if my teeth also just got pulled out as I was typing this for improperly devil’s advocating her case.

Congratulations, Wroclaw, Poland! You now know how f***ed up a thing you have to do for the internet to notice!
