nice time

Are you ready for some Nice Time that only needed to happen because there was some very Not Nice Time in the first place? SHUT UP YOU ARE TOO. Today, Bamz partially commuted a prison sentence for one Ceasar Cantu, who was convicted in 2006 of drug dealing, dropping his sentence from 15 years to […]

Willie Nelson playing a private “backyard bbq” fundraiser for Wendy Davis? YAY NICE TIME! SHOTGUN WILLIE! POT JOKE POT JOKE HAW HAW HAW! Also, that was a pretty good title for the post, we guess, so we have that going for us. Now, if we could just get Miss Dolly Parton to come play too, […]

Last month, Honey Maid graham crackers, which you buy once per year for s’mores and then leave at the back of the cupboard until the mice get them or they turn to dust, aired an ad that said everybody can buy crackers and make s’mores once a year, even the gays and the interracially married. […]

Here is a New Pope story that isn’t so much about New Pope as it is about the way people think of New Pope. Depending on your personal ol’ softy settings, you may want to have a hanky nearby. So what happened was that on Wednesday, the day before President Obama tried to convert Pope […]

Over at Happy Nice Time People this evening, we’ll teach you how to cope with the pain of learning that Gwyneth Paltrow and that dude from Coldplay are breaking up. We’ll also teach you to make a kick-ass eggplant parmesan. We show you some legit nice time where a construction worked is rescued from some […]

Here’s a Nice Time change from our usual school lunch story — instead of a tale of heartless dickery leading to poor kids’ food being thrown away, this time around we have a tale where the good guys win and hungry kids get fed! Could this become a trend? Yes, we do need to pause […]

How’s about a round of applause for Arizona state Sen. Steve Gallardo, who was moved by the recent excitement over the state’s discrimination-is-awesome bill to come out as gay today. “I am gay, I am Latino and I’m a state senator,” Gallardo said, explaining that the fight over SB 1062 had been a “game-changer” in […]

Have you heard about Yùtù? No, we do not mean the rock band. Yùtù is Mandarin for “Jade Rabbit,” and is the name of the lunar rover in China’s Chang’e 3 mission. Jade Rabbit has been rolling around for a few months now, being adorable. Do you object to our description of a 310-pound go-kart […]

Dag, federal judiciary, another state’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional? Which one is it this time? Virginia? Cool beans. And Virginia has a brand-new attorney general, Democrat Mark Herring, who’s actually on the side of the two gay couples who brought the suit, so the state will not appeal the decision; instead, the appeal […]

Two more red states have been victimized by judges who took away their precious right to make sure citizens are only as equal as Jesus wants them to be. In Kentucky, a federal judge ruled that the state must recognize same-sex marriages from outside the state, and in Idaho, the state Supreme Court said that […]

It’s Friday afternoon. You’re either immersed in the Olympics or avoiding the Olympics or drunk already or a combo of the two. Why not take a break from all that and join us for some totally legit nice time? You know how often we have to write about terrible people being terrible and literally ripping […]

Welcome, wonkeesters, to another edition of Derp Roundup, the weekly feature where we hose down the news, filter out the stories that weren’t quite worth a whole post but too stoopid to ignore altogether, spray the whole mess with cheap booze, and bring you the runoff. Enjoy! Our first story violates the entire premise of […]

[Update: Previous version of the post stated Giffords was jumping tomorrow, but the jump was actually today, to be aired tomorrow.] You know, if we survived a terrible mass shooting complete with massive damage to our bodies, we would probably take that as our ticket to just lie around the rest of our lives and […]

Here’s some industrial-strength Nice Time, courtesy of our old friend Evan Hurst (Wonkette misses you, Evan!) at TruthWinsOut: That photo up there is the home of Dr. Mary Pham of Irvine, California, who started flying a rainbow flag over her home last spring when all her neighbors were putting up flags for sports teams and […]

We always feel a little guilty when we dress up a “not as horrible as it coulda been” story as a Nice Time story, and this has been a week where too many stories needed Remedial Kittens, so it is with some pleasure that we bring you this almost-unblemished story of Pure Nice: Connor Johnson, […]
