I was expecting Who Let the Dogs Out or something like that but oh my god this is so much better.
Thanks to both Bugs Bunny and The Lone Ranger, I’ve heard the finale to this countless times, but I think it’s the first time I’ve ever listened to the entire William Tell Overture.

I would feel like I was in the movie the 5th Element and I would never leave my house
shovin’ your girlfriend out of bed at like 7am so you can use the desk for your laptop
or y’know what, forget it, just seal her in there like a coffin
Rushing all your friends out after dinner so you can have a private rave.
Pretending your apartment unit is your best friend Transformer and whispering your closest held secrets to it at night.
I liked this guy’s apartment a lot better before I noticed that there was a door that closed around the toilet/shower area. I was hopin’ that when he invited friends over you had to poop out in public like in prison.
This is neither a “large bedroom” nor a “fully equipped office”. What is that, a Full Size bed? Where does his computer, printer, and office supplies live when the desk is recessed? Also, he appears to be one of “those people” who doesn’t own a TV or a radio.
I can see this working as a college room or a hotel room, but I would never live in a tiny space like that. This definitely isn’t for couples; especially those who work different shifts. You get up at 4AM, while she gets to sleep until 7. Oops, nope! Got to slide the bed closed, so I can shower! Sorry, babe!
For the record, I find Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines morally reprehensible (but incredibly catchy).
This Weird Al version made me laugh and laugh and laugh. It speaks to my inner English professor.
I almost choked to death trying not to laugh out loud watching this at work earlier today.
God bless you Al Yankovic, you’ve taken a catchy yet disgusting song and actually made it catchy and enjoyable.
memorydragon bless you for bringing this to my attention
Bless Weird Al for making this masterpiece
I am like hardcore anti-prescriptivist and I actually enjoyed this Weird Al is a wizard
Q:"I'm a loner but everyone (falls in love with me) wants to be my partner. Even though I have no super powers I'm one of the most well known and respected members of the Justice League. I'm tough but it's just to hide how I was hurt on the inside by the death of my parents. Also I'm super rich and good looking. I've had many lovers but I've never found 'the one.' And I'm surrounded by a harem of attractive young men, just friends though." love Bruce, but really, he's the Ultimate Mary-Sue.
he has so many people loyal to him when all he’s ever done is hurt them
women fall in love with him left and right even though he’s kind of a cabbage
he keeps people at arms-length “for their own safety”
super smart and trained by the best
just. Mary Sue. totally. no question.
but Cass is the one being touted as a Mary Sue? Cassandra Cain? Cass, who has a serious learning disability comparable to severe dyslexia that frustrates her and her family? Cass, who can be so arrogant and yet also so self-hating? Cass, who killed someone as a child and it scarred her so very deeply? Cass, who is not nearly loved enough for the complex, amazing character that she is, who has both glaring flaws and wonderful attributes (LIKE ANY FLESHED-OUT CHARACTER SHOULD), who has been unceremoniously wiped from DC by what can hardly be called anything but straight-up racism and ableism, to the surprise of no one and the fury of her fans. Cass, who HAS SO MUCH FUCKING POTENTIAL AS A PERSON AND WOMAN AND PERSON OF COLOR WITH DISABILITIES AND SHE IS THE ONE BEING CALLED A MARY SUE?
no. Fuck no.
I think some people have no clue what the definition of “Mary Sue” is. (same can be said of most people who accuse others of “strawman attacks”)
Client: Hello, I asked one of my friends and he said that you built our site using Hotmail.
Me: Excuse me! What do you mean?
Client: You used Hotmail to build my site.
Me: We can’t do that, nobody can. Hotmail is owned by Microsoft and they offer free email accounts. It’s not a development environment.
Client: My friend is a computer expert and he is sure.
Me: Is your friend next to you?
Me: Can you put him through?
Friend: You made my friend’s site with Hotmail. Admit it.
Me: Sir, we can’t do that. What made you think it was created using Hotmail.
Friend: All the pages in the site end with .html.
Yep. He’s a “computer expert”, alright!
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
A woman was left gobsmacked when she learned the gold ring she stumbled across in a field was 2,000 years old.

"…it felt like a gift from the underworld," Lundin told The Local. "It was my magnificent ring. I didn’t want to give it up."
LISTEN TO ELROND!
But, as was recently demonstrated across my dash, no one listens to Elrond.*doom*
Some Muslim workers in Cincinnati were fired recently for taking time to pray on the job after their company changed its policy on flexible break times.
Mohamed Maow, along with nearly two-dozen other Somali refugees who had been legally working part and full time at DHL Global Mail, was fired after stopping for a five minute evening prayer that is required by the religion of Islam. The three-year employee of DHL has never received any negative reviews for his work over the years, and in the past, the company allowed flexible break times that enabled the Muslim workers to be able to pray when they needed to.
After changing their break policy, however, Muslim workers were left with no choice but to take the five-minutes to pray. Workers claim that they told supervisors that they would go off the clock for the prayer time, but they weren’t allowed.
"We do not have a choice," said Shahira Abdullah, 21. "We must stop what we are doing and pray. We were not asking for an additional break."
A new supervisor had taken over not long before the group was fired, and that is when the policy changed. On October 9th, Maow and the other 23 Muslim workers stopped to pray at 7:24pm. After their prayer, three workers were called into the office by the supervisor and told they were all fired. Police were called to the scene to make sure that there were no harsh reactions when the workers were leaving the building.
Now, 12 complaints, including one from Maow, have been filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and 12 more are still expected to be filed.
"We are requesting all available remedies allowed under Title VII (of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964) and the Kentucky Civil Rights Act, including but not limited to: damages, reinstatement where appropriate and policy changes to ensure that all worker’s civil rights are respected," said Booker Washington of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the organization that is filing the complaints on behalf of the workers.
DHL released a statement in response to the complaints filed, stating, “While we believe that all respective internal rules of DHL Global Mail are perfectly in line with legal requirements, we will investigate/consider the case carefully. DHL Global Mail is an equal opportunity employer and takes seriously all complaints of harassment and discrimination, however we do not comment in detail on pending charges or litigation. Our policies provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment. DHL Global Mail ensures employees’ religious practices are understood and, as reasonable, accommodated.”
Still, Maow and the 23 other Muslim workers that were fired for taking five minutes to pray claim that there was a basic lack of understanding and an unwillingness to compromise.
"First, it’s religion," said Maow on the tenants of Islam. "Second, it’s that you are to support your father and mother and children until they are able to care for themselves. We take work very seriously. I have never had this problem before. When I took English class at Cincinnati Public Schools, my teachers always understood when I had to pray. It never was a problem."
The matter is currently being handled, but as of right now, Maow and many other former DHL workers are unemployed.
this is clearly Islamophobia but its doubly concerning that those fired include two dozen refugees that means in the mean time many of these people won’t have the resources to provide any sort of cushion for themselves and their families.
Is it DHL policy to fire *anyone* for a minor infraction before there’s been any warnings or counseling given? Sounds like a typical hard-nosed, arrogant, overbearing bureaucratic dumbass manager to me. Office morale and productivity mean nothing; only following stupid & restrictive office rules count for anything.
