Ron Paul Will Act At You In Atlas Shrugged: Part III

Clocking in at around 645,000 words, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand’s magnum derpus. So it makes sense that the film version has been stretched out into three full-length movies, because how else are you going to cram all that Objectivist TRUTH into the hollow skulls of the American sheeple?

Heavy Metal Christian Band Was Actually Full Of Lying Atheists

A Christian “news” site reported this week that an actual publication (Alternative Press) reported last month that the lead singer of a shitty metalcore band not only tried to have his wife killed last year, but also lied about being Christian. Oh, Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying, how could you? (We mean about the atheism, which is the real tragedy here, obviously.) Read more on Heavy Metal Christian Band Was Actually Full Of Lying Atheists…

We’ve Reached Peak Thought Catalog: ‘I Had Sex With A Trans Woman’

Hey guys, a straight cis dude fucked a trans woman even though he knew she was trans. Isn’t that amazing? Should he not be awarded the Nobel Prize for Enlightened Cock for putting his dick inside a woman who used to have a dick? After all, “she said she had all of her lady parts” and she did so that’s totally cool, right, bro? Maybe this bro will score sweet tang off the Hampshire grads he meets in a nearby coffee shop, because Love. Anyway, obviously this is on Thought Catalog and obviously you need to read an excerpt, which I shall provide here. Read more on We’ve Reached Peak Thought Catalog: ‘I Had Sex With A Trans Woman’…

Here Are Some Other Stupid Offensive Football Team Names

Some people on your Internets are Very Upset over the news today that the U.S. Patent Office canceled the Washington Redskins trademark. Why oh why would the U.S. Patent Office do such a thing? Because “redskins” is a derogatory term for Native Americans, who happen to be actual human people and not just Disney characters, did you know? Anyway, people on Twitter are saying all kinds of amazing things about this, as you’d expect. And here at the joint partnership that is Happy Nice Time People and Wonkette, we are no different. In our “sekrit chatcave” where we communicate all day long, we have come up with a list of excellent team names that are about as defensible as the Washington Redskins.

Sister Wives: Polygamists in a Shark Tank

There was so much crying in this episode I felt in comparison that I was born without ovaries or tear ducts. Am I Dexter? The emotions were so high between Meri and Robyn you could luxuriate in a long hot bath using the stuff that was flying out of their eyes. Why the cry babes, you ask? Well, this episode was high stakes! They were headed into an investment firm to pitch their jewelry and accessories business, “My Sister Wives Closet.” Think: bangle bracelets crafted by Chinese children ages 7-8, and designed by four women who all have sex with a man who looks like Nickelback.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Croaks His Way From the South Bay to the Valley

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti bet New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio that the L.A. Kings would win the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. And he was right! So Mayor Bill had to go on national teevee with America’s Prankster Husband, Jimmy Kimmel, and sing Randy Newman’s “I Love L.A.” in front of everybody. This is just adorable and beautiful and amazing and deeply awkward and extraordinary funny. Watch it and embrace the incredible nerdiness on display. Also, not to be totally inappropriate, but Eric Garcetti is bae. RAWWWWRRR! Read more on HNTP… Read more on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Croaks His Way From the South Bay to the Valley…

KFC Corporate Headquarters Briefly Restores Faith In Humanity (No, We Are Serious)

You know what sucks? People. All people. Everywhere. (Well, except you beautiful people reading this here blog.) But there is a special place in imaginary hell for the patrons of KFC in Jackson, Mississippi. A three-year-old girl got attacked in the face by a pit bull and had facial injuries. Then, on the way back from a doctor’s appointment, her grandmother takes her to KFC, where they are asked to leave because the girl’s face is TOO DISTURBING FOR PEOPLE EATING AT FUCKING KFC.

Awesome Pick-Up Artist Moves From An Actual Hot Human Woman

Now if you know anything about the nature of this site (pop-culturey, feministy little sister to Wonkette) you may expect me to troll pickup artists (PUAs) in this post. But! That is not what I am going to do! Instead, I shall offer my own take on pickup artistry. I really think I could teach a kickass PUA class and help my gentleman students score with excellent babes.

Kickstarter … Wait, No, Change.org Petition To Get Eric Cantor On Dancing With The Stars

Look, I don’t know why I’ve got a crush on Eric Cantor. I just do. He’s handsome, and Jewish, and Southern, and I’m so on board for all of this. He’s got a wife and kids, and I’m not trying to mess with that or anything. I just fantasize about seeing him wearing a spangly sparkly outfit, waltzing around a dance floor in high-heeled shoes with a woman 25 years his junior. Is that so wrong?
