Derp Roundup: Your Weekly Grab Bag Of Grotesqueries

Duuuuuudes. Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, the (*koff!*) weekly feature where we roll up whatever seeds and stems are left from stories that weren’t quite compelling enough to make a full post, but too stoopid to ignore altogether, and then we, uhhhh… hahahahahaha Yeah, we totally do, man.

How Wonkette Helped Vanity Fair’s Juli Weiner Flunk Out Of College Or Something Probably

I fell in love with Wonkette while I was interning at Teen Vogue, one of my 700 college internships and I can remember the post that did it for me. I just spent the last 10 minutes (sixty lifetimes, in blogger years) searching for this article that made me laugh so hard I had to leave my desk: “GENIUS COMMENTER AT MCCAIN STORE NOW.” It’s still funny, even though John McCain died many years ago. A few weeks later, in summer 2008, I wrote Ken an earnest and overwritten e-mailed (proofread no fewer than 800 times by my boyfriend at the time) and asked if he was hiring summer interns. He said, as he remembered in his own anniversary essay, that Team Wonkette was going to the 2008 conventions and I could write the daily morning post while everyone was traveling. You’ll never guess what happened next: I wrote the daily morning post while everyone was traveling. A book deal and pregnancy for Sara and Ken, irrespectively, allowed my internship to morph into an editorship during which I would laugh and laugh about Richard Cohen with Jim Newell in our “Campfire chat” during my classes that would allow laptops. I was in college throughout my tenure at Wonkette and basically ended up selecting classes on the basis of laptop-friendliness. This is, I guess, why I wrote my senior thesis about modern poetry? Actually, I have no idea why I wrote my senior thesis about modern poetry. Read more on How Wonkette Helped Vanity Fair’s Juli Weiner Flunk Out Of College Or Something Probably…

Now We Shall Repost Ken Layne’s Repost Of Juli Weiner’s Writeup Of Betty Ford’s Boozy Chocolate Cake

Who can forget this classic Thanksgiving liquor cake recipe from First Lady Betty Ford? Our dearly departed Juli Weiner wrote this up several Thanksgivings ago, and we still reprint it every year, even though now she makes Harry Potter slash fiction photo-comics for Vanity Fair: Here is one for the “chocoholics,” starring Betty Ford! It’s a Chocolate Icebox Dessert, and while it SOUNDS racist, that is just because of all the liquor.

What’s the Mystery Thing In the Painting In the Mitt Romney Portrait?

Your former editor Juli Weiner has an Important Article at Vanity Fair about Mitt Romney’s strange Official Portrait from when he was the socialist governor of Taxachusetts. For all of his money and all of his calculated lust for public life, Romney acts like he was sewn into the wrong body — a characteristic that is perfectly captured by his wooden pose and mannequin stare in this official painting. But what is in the painting within the painting? What is that? Perhaps it’s something that could motivate the wingnut GOP “base.” Read more on What’s the Mystery Thing In the Painting In the Mitt Romney Portrait?…

Juli Weiner To Anthony Weiner, On Weiner Jokes: ‘It Gets Better’

Former Wonkette editor Juli Weiner has something special to tell hard-on-having congressman Anthony Weiner: Dear Congressman Weiner, Hi! My name is Juli Weiner. Although I am a brunette in my early twenties, you do not follow me on Twitter. So, I don’t know whether that photo has anything to do with your genitals—and, actually, you don’t really seem to know either—but I just wanted to say that I understand that all the teasing, jokes, headlines, chyrons, and puns must make you sad. I am reaching out to you today because like you, my last name is pronounced “wee-ner.” Read more on Juli Weiner To Anthony Weiner, On Weiner Jokes: ‘It Gets Better’…

Your Beloved Former Wonkette Editor Juli Weiner Is Now In Vanity Fair Magazine

The talent-pool demons at Vanity Fair stole away our Juli Weiner last year, and then they made her blog the same kind of stuff she blogged for Wonkette, but she had to work at the bottom of an elevator shaft beneath the Conde Nast cafeteria’s dumpster chute. It was terrible. Also, David Denby was always coming over from his “office at the New Yorker” (the neighboring garbage chute) to try to make her say bad things about Anthony Lane (never going to happen). Anyway, Juli’s in the print issue hitting newsstands this week! Read more on Your Beloved Former Wonkette Editor Juli Weiner Is Now In Vanity Fair Magazine…

Seattle Times Defiles Memory Of Ted Stevens, Sarah Palin’s Best Friend

Here is a scan from the Seattle Times from, uh, sometime after Ted Stevens died in a plane crash, we guess, sent to us by a tipster known only as “foog,” who may or may not be the person who runs this blog full of funny headlines. It is one of those things where you have to decide if the copy editor on the desk that night was making a grim joke or was just tired and bored and came up with some stock phrase and then didn’t stop to think about its implications. Are you laughing at it? Then you are a monster, a terrible monstrous monster. Read more on Seattle Times Defiles Memory Of Ted Stevens, Sarah Palin’s Best Friend…
  better than the old politico

JULI WEINER IS THE NEW POLITICO: Bloodthirsty ambitious blog monster Juli Weiner, your beloved ex-Wonkette editor who is now editor-in-chief of New York City’s Vanity Fair organization (the Mafia), typed up some wacky jokes today about the faptastic new $100 bill looking all European and socialist, probably before going to her business lunch at a strip club, or wherever they eat in New York. And then Matt Drudge took it seriously and made it his top story. Juli probably has 900 billion page views by now and is reaping her reward: a teaspoon of Graydon Carter’s finest smuggled Iranian caviar. Juli is such a Drudge link-whore, all the time.

Forgotten Political Book Now Free With Two Packs of Camel Lights

Our dearly departed Juli Weiner sends this New York street scene of a newsstand that doesn’t show nearly enough respect to TIME magazine’s “The Note” blog-to-book, Game Change. Come on, can’t we put this important work somewhere better than, say, next to the pimp/old man cigars? Shouldn’t it be on a pedestal of sorts? Maybe by those little crack pipes disguised as “plastic roses” or whatever? [Thanks Juli we miss you!] Read more on Forgotten Political Book Now Free With Two Packs of Camel Lights…

Important Changes Regarding Your Wonkette: Bye And Thanks But Mostly Thanks!

Well hello! A brief note from your Tuesday and Thursday morning editor: Today is my final day at Wonkette, as starting on Monday I will be blogging for Vanity Fair‘s VF Daily blog, so please come hang out there, too. It’ll be just like old times! Thank you times a million to Ken, Jim, Sara, Riley and Arielle, the best people in the entire Internet, even factoring in all the robots and whoever writes the “Twitter” Website. And thank you, readers and commenters, for reading and commenting, and for tipping and for being far, far better at grammar than I than me. I will miss everyone.
