With no one to assist him, Mr Chimbalanga, 20, finally managed to stand and was allowed to leave to clean himself up.

I tried to watch Blue Mountain State. I even muted it. But it was just bad. Hot man ass couldn't save it. I guess it comes from going to a football obsessed college myself. I knew guys who acted like that. And they were annoying. Their hotness couldn't save them either.

Re: The channel 4 mummy thing. This is why I think our civilization is going the way of the omans. Wow.

tdot said...

That article on South Beach is shocking...I was there in September and went to Twist loads of times and I'd say the guys inside there are more of a threat than anyone outside! There were a lot of obviously gay guys around and it didn't seem to bother anyone. Guess there's always ignorant people around..

Eduardo Guize said...

1.Cristiano's face is so dead in those pics.
2. "Human civilisation 'will collapse' unless greed culture is stopped":... ok, we're fucked.
3. LOL at the 10 blog trolls...
4. When are you moving to Rio?
5. I wanted to see Australia but boy you're scaring me...
6. "movie-goers plagued with suicidal thoughts about not being able to visit the planet Pandora". Have they thought of all the "running for your life" it takes to live there?
7. Only to say that we love you, Garcon.

I HAVE SOOOOOO MUCH TO READ UP ON AND GET INFORMED ON..THANK YOU...U ARE A BIG PART OF THE BLOGOSPHERE WITH THIS SEGMENT! MEANS A LOT TO US.

Garçon Stupide said...

Eric - that sucks. Still, at can't be as annoying as the much-vaunted Glee, which makes my ears bleed.

Tdot - I shoulda asked to use your sexy beach shot alongside the South Beach piece.

Eduardo - glad to see you're not accusing me of promoting positive paedophilia this week. I suppose that's something. ;)

corvedacosta said...

Support Haiti anyway you can.

Garçon Stupide said...

Corve - I could have made this entire post about Haiti. It almost eclipses all else. "Unimaginable horror and suffering" barely covers it.

I had no time to put this article together this week - I aim to have it out by Sunday morning at the latest. A picture speaks a thousand words, and to that end The Big Picture is the best option, for now.

Theology Now said...

Is it any wonder that church attendance is in free-fall when a succession of prominent religious figures continually undermine Christianity by behaving in such indescribably awful ways?

Cogent Ascending said...

I'm all for an emerging community of gay guys coming out and being proud and loud and in your face about who they are and not apologizing for it but isn't a Chinese Male Beauty Pageant sort of an oxy moron when the guys IN the pageant aren't even hot?
Where were all the hot chinese guys when they put out the call for this pageant?
THAT was the best they could scrounge up in the gay community?

Are there news topic that you shy away from?
