You guys, we keep forgetting to watch Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp, and for real we are so sad about it, because this week Bristol Palin left Guido on the side of the road, or in a gas station or something, and their talk afterwards for the cameras is some freakin’ Shakespearean shizz yo, like if Shakespeare was emoted by the Frankenstein monster.

Fuck man, the pain of being 23 and with a head full of rocks and inchoate longings that your grunts and wails cannot properly explain, to this, this woman, this siren, who is stuck in your big dumb selfish asshole douchebag soul, it hurts when they say no. At about a minute in, Gino goes on an existential rant of dumb love and pain — why can’t she accept him no matter what a dumb asshole he is, whyyyyyyy, stupid cunt. Guess we have to actually set the DVR.

    Not having sex will make a man very emotional.
    Did you notice her lack of emotion? What does that tell ya?

  • Boojum

    Bristle just rubs him wrong.

    The meth wants what the meth wants.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Maybe she can hook up with The Situation on the rebound.

    • CheeseBro69

      It wouldn't be the first time Bristol violated her abs(tinence) pledge

      • Nothingisamiss

        Why are there not more thumbs up for this comment?!

    • Judging from what he wears, and her IQ, you could probably just plant a shrub and she wouldn't really notice the difference.

  • Barb_

    Keep your chin up, Bristol. (If you can. That thing must weigh a ton)

  • Bezoar

    I dunno; do you think it goes down like this if there's no camera?

    • larrykat

      Does a Palin shit outside in back of the boathouse?

    • Can't say how it goes down, but she???

  • BaldarTFlagass

    That video would not play for me, which in hindsight is probably a good thing.

  • Clearly, he objected to taking care of someone else's spawn

    • rickmaci

      But he seemed otherwise ok with sloppy seconds.

  • finallyhappy

    So I read that Bristly said 3 year old Tripp did not say "fag", he said " fuck". How does a 3 year old learn either of those words?(I mean , I know how- this is my way of suggesting outrage)

    • keinsignal

      Not to self-incriminate or anything but I still laugh every time I remember my 3-year-old son running up to me as I was loading the dishwasher and confidently announcing, "Daddy, I know that I shouldn't say 'fuck', because 'fuck' is a bad word!" and then running off again. Almost dropped a plate.

    • ph7

      Hit your thumb with a hammer, a parent may say "Fuck".
      Hit your heart with some hate, a parent may say "Faggot."

      The first is human. The second is inhuman.

    • PuckStopsHere

      Let's not rule out the possibility that the youngster is merely a prodigy, shall we? I mean, given the genetic pool from which he came and all.

    • rickmaci

      This is how it starts. Next season it will be all, "the kid did not say that word, he called the President a "nih"…

      • anniegetyerfun

        "What he really said was, "The President is near, Mama!" and it makes sense because he was watching the President on TV and he was close to the TV."

    • sullivanst

      That's fucking bullshit. It had two syllables, there's zero possible doubt about what he said, and it wasn't fuck. Maybe she's thinking about a different occasion.

    • rickmaci

      Let me get this straight. It's OK in a grifter Snowbilly family if the infant spawn says "fuck" but not if he says "fag" or is it the other way around? These cultural differences can get so confusing.

      • No no, his beard had some guy's nutsack. Not sure why Dali wasn't with her, tho.

        K-Fed at least had rhythm and an unearned sense of importance. Gino is just a poor man's K-Fed. Yeah, there can't be a a more devastating comparison in life than that.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    As an Eye-talian-'Merican, I am offended by the term "guido." Well, okay, I take that back – I'm more offended by Ragu commercials and the Olive Garden. And heart-stringing guitar/violin muzak soundtracks on fourth-rate reality showz. Also, too.

    • Goonemeritus

      I hear you sister, just watching people put cheese on a fish dish can set me off. Say what you want about us Italians we have a strong moral compass.

      • NellCote71

        Yes, you do. Especially when it comes to cheese on fish and cappuccino after 11 a.m., much less after dinner.

        Funny story. Short version. Lived in Italy. I was at a trattoria. Italian man orders a shrimp and spaghetti dish with red sauce. Later calls waiter over and asks for parmigiano. Waiter says no, it is a seafood dish. Man says there wasn't enough shrimp to qualify for a seafood dish, so he wants parmesan to finish off the spaghetti. Waiter complies.

        • Goonemeritus

          If morals are conditional than they are just preferences. Wisely most Italians that were correctly brought up are mainly rigid about issues surrounding food. The average Italian will know at least 50 filthy Pope jokes.

    • va_real

      They offend me too, but I'm not Italian. Does that make me racisty?

      Yes, she's a catch!….but please don't attempt that stunt without professional supervision.

    • you can woo her if she can do any of the following:

      1. find your home country on a map (no labels!)
      2. name a politician from your home country. (or jude law. you can consider hugh grant but i think that's cheating…)
      3. name a clash song. (or a spice girl.)

      this should give you ample scope.

      which you will need.

  • ph7

    No access to birth control = another tragedy, heartbreak, severed lives and possibilities, confused child suffering under immature parents.

    Bristol and her control freak mother ought to take that reality on a road show and sell that book to the churches and the trolls at the Walmart book signings.

    • Well, there's one good thing about being long-term unemployed. I don't have to do that. I also don't have to put on make-up at 7 a.m. and wear shoes that hurt all day. Somehow I don't feel that my brain is any less melty, though. Thank you, Wonkette.

      • SayItWithWookies

        Sorry about that — every time I bitch about my job, I realize that I'm lucky just to have one.

        • No, you ARE allowed to complain. "Lucky" people are those with inherited wealth.
          Like certain yung'uns who start their businesses with $10 million in seed money from DearOldMormonDad
          OR certain pretend real estate "magnates" who built their exaggerated empire on Dad's thriving business and still get to marry Russian models in million-dollar weddings after they've gone bankrupt twice
          OR people who are so rich they can give away millions to Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum just for the lulz.

          I'd bet my last dime that your jobs sucks because, in any just universe (or socialist nation or even France), three people would be doing it, not you alone. Happy Hump Day.

            Thank you. And you know, I'd rather be overworked, underpaid me than any of those bastards anyway.

            But yeah, we've glorified both the pathological love of money and the Marlboro Man fake rugged independent mythology — and therefore, every rich motherfucker clearly got there with the sweat of his own brow, probably ends his day smelling like woodsmoke and axle grease when not in a three-piece suit, and revolutionized at least one significant market sector with his daring new ideas.

      "What sides come with the thighs?"

    Living in SF and being a Giants' fan, there isn't a damn thing an LA Dodger fan can do that I would agree with or approve of.

    However, that woodland cammo Dodgers' cap has to be the dumbest garment I've ever seen. First of all, it should be urban cammi. LA IS A CITY.

    Second of all, it just shouldn't be. Period.

    Why doesn't he just come out and say "Fuck You, You Fucking Fuck!" Instead, he pisses around and only drops Fuck in every other word…c'mon on guy, MAN UP!

    I hope she saves some money from this gig. Her kid is going to need so much psychotherapy.

  • WinterOuthouse

    John McCain and Guido, both suffering with numb nuts. Grab your sac boys it's spreading like plague!

  • StealthMuslin

    It's like The Philadelphia Story recast with talking apes…

  • ttommyunger

    Well at least this explains why Bristle is so bow-legged: Guido doesn't remove his hat when he eats.

  • Serolf_Divad

    OK, quick question here: who watches this show? People who admire the Palins? Or people who despise them?

  • mosjef

    Take some of that sweet TV dough and by they selfs a double wide.

  • moseyon

    Bristol is a bitch, her mother is bitchy, her show is about bitchiness.

  • No one else has noticed the resemblance between Shannen Doherty & new chinned Bristol Bay?

  • JCfromNC

    The novel version of Frankenstein's monster could actually have done a better job. He was pretty articulate and intelligent.

  • Stevola

    In the book, Frankenstein's monster was intelligent.

  • LetUsBray

    Wait, Guido left? Who's going to tell us when it's Valentimes?

  • Biel_ze_Bubba

    Still. Will. Not. Watch.

  • ElPinche

    It's like an episode of Girls except with more cunts.

  • Darklady

    What's important is how thoughtful and concerned Bristol is about Tripp's feelings.

    Man, she is one crappy mom. She doesn't even come across like a very decent human being. Gino's lucky. It's Tripp who's trapped.
