Must See Sketch: We Don’t Serve Gays

In: Donovan, Random Reads

We’ve all heard stories about LGBT patrons being denied service for their sexuality. Perhaps, you’ve been on the end of such discrimination. Most often, religious beliefs are the go-to reasons as to their motives.

This spoof highlights exactly how silly businesses look when they refuse to serve the gays. Even though some reasons are outrageously ridiculous, they’re no more insane than actual ones dished out by bigots. Check out the clip below.

Love nipple play? Who doesn’t 😉 You definitely have to watch this random commercial from across the pond.

The spot, created by London agency AMV BBDO, is for a software company called Thunderhead. The business-to-business service helps advertisers understand their customers. If they’re gunning solely for the demographic that loves man-on-man suckling, then mission accomplished. The Viking-looking dude’s nipples are legendary.

I could describe the commercial, but I feel it’s a clip best experienced going in blind. Check it out below and weigh in afterward.

Oh selfies. The thing we love to hate but then take our own anyway… you know, to capture the moment, to have evidence of all of fun you’re having. I’m totally guilty of it on my Instagram. A while ago, I was with a few friends, one of which always has the best, most artistic selfies of him and/or him and his friends. It’s really quite a talent. So, when we all finished brunch, I suggested the group of us take a photo together… like the ones he does. He responded, “Okay, do you have two hours?” HA! Here I thought he was just snapping amazing photos with ease but it was actually a well thought out production. It makes me wonder how many shots people take before the one they post?

In this new Funny or Die video, two girl friends (Lauryn Kahn & D’Arcy Karden) want to take a photo of their night hanging out together because they don’t have many photos together and they think their friends would like to see a picture of them hanging out. Well, taking this photo isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Praise baby Jesus!!! I’ve always wanted to go to the Harry Potter theme park, but if I’m going to fly all that way to Florida, I’m spending my time in Miami. No offense, Orlando 😉 Now, I can take in all things Hogwarts on the West Coast.

Universal Studios Hollywood announced The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is headed to La-la Land. It’s signature ride, the 3-D HD spectacular “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey,” and other attractions are set to open sometime in Spring 2016. I can’t wait to enjoy some Butterbeer.

“The momentum behind J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world is as strong as ever and we are incredibly excited to bring Hogwarts to Hollywood,” said Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, in a press release. “Fans around the world have experienced the magic at ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ in Orlando and Osaka, and we look forward to continued success with our partners at Universal Studios Hollywood as we offer more fans a chance to step into this immersive environment.”

In the words of Sean Connery himself from the original film, “I’m waiting to be impressed.” Though it recouped its budget and then some, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen left both critics and audiences unimpressed. Not surprisingly, a sequel was never produced.

There are reports now, though, that 20th Century Fox is rebooting the franchise based on Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s graphic novel of the same title.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, it’s sort of The Avengers but with literary icons from the Victorian era teaming up. Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dorian Gray, Mina Harker, Allan Ian Quatermain and more join forces to fight a common enemy. Connery, Peta Wilson, Shane West and Stuart Townsend starred in the 2003 film. Speaking of 007, the film was his final live-action film before retiring.

This isn’t the first time someone has attempted to resurrect The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen franchise. Back in 2013, FOX made a pilot commitment to create a TV series, but the network eventually passed.

Do you think a reboot will work? Did you watch the first film? Check out the original theatrical trailer below.

“Any of various small, images, symbols or icons used in text fields in electronic communication to express the emotional attitude of the writer, convey information succinctly, communicate a message playfully without using words, etc.”

Seems like a winded way of saying cute pics in text messsages 😉 Emoji is just one of more than 1,700 other words being added to the unabridged Merriam-Webster dictionary. Naturally, plenty of the new entries are very familiar to those who are internet savvy. Check out more words below that made the cut.

Are you a hardcore Mean Girls fan? Got about $15 million kicking around? Perhaps, this piece of real estate might be of interest.

Regina George’s home featured in the teen flick is on the market for a cool $14.8 million. Situated in Toronto, Canada, the mammoth NeoClassical stone residence is approximately 20,000 square feet. That’s 11 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms on a private 2 acre property. Naturally, it also has a garage big enough for six vehicles. Duh!

It appears that Regina’s bedroom in the movie isn’t an actual room on the property. Besides the Gone With The Wind-esque staircase, killer kitchen and stunning grounds, the mansion doesn’t appeal to me too much. It’s kinda bipolar with its all-white rooms and old-lady decor in others. Get a sneak peek at the home below and share your thoughts afterwards.
