Some musings on V.D.

No, not that kind, this kind.

The world would be a better place without either.

(Note to whippersnappers: Once upon a time Sexually Transmitted Diseases were called Venereal Diseases. Now you know. Now get offa my lawn.)

All right, let’s get this over with

It’s almost D-Day in the War Against Christmas, so it’s time to establish the worst Christmas songs ever. There are two categories:

1. Worst original Christmas song.
2. Worst cover of a Christmas song.

And the winners are …

Worst original Christmas song: Punk Rock Christmas – The Sex Pistols.

No. Shut up. I don’t care. It fucking sucks. I first heard this song when much of my life was devoted to seeing how much sound I could get out of my radio before the speaker melted* and even then this song made me cringe. I can’t find it on the YouTubes. Count yourself lucky.

Where was I? Oh, yes.

Worst cover of a Christmas song: Little Drummer Boy – David Bowie & Bing Crosby.

O.K. First of all, what the fuck? Don’t get me wrong. I love Bowie. Hell, I love Crosby. But … No. And the song is just sooo treacle drippy I can’t even think of it without feeling like my ears are full of goo†.

There. That’s done.

*Note to whippersnappers. Once upon a time they made radios that only had one speaker. They sounded … bad.

†Ha ha, motherfucker.

Pig Cooties could land us in FEMA Camps! Also!

Concern is in the air [via WTOP]:

“The powers that are given to governors and often to the chief executives of localities are truly extraordinary,” says Michael Greenberger, founder and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security at the University of Maryland. “They virtually can constitute martial law.”

OMG! There must be an outbreak of a very deadly, highly contagious and easily transmissible disease if a professor is taking time out of his busy schedule to talk about the governor’s Break Glass in the Event of an Emergency, and it Sure as Fuck Better be a REAL Emergency, Bitch, powers.  Shit, and here’s me without 50,000 yards of duct tape. At least I haz a bukkit to catch my vital organs when they start to drip out of my nose. Oh. Wait …

[The governor] can quarantine, he can isolate, he can seize medications, of course he would have to after the fact pay for them,” Greenberger says. In addition, “[The governor] can martial [sic, the word you want is m-a-r-s-h-a-l-l, look it up -ed.] the entire police power of the state to help him in the enforcement of these measures.”

Greenberger spoke at the National Press Club this week during a discussion titled “Swine Flu: A Danger to Your Rights as Well as Your Health?”

Please. O’Malley isn’t going to send the N.G. out to jab us with needles and seal us in our homes over a disease that is less deadly than the regular flu and you know it. I sentence you to five hours of reading birfer websites.

Don’t whine or you’ll get six  hours listening to speeches by Michele Bachmann.
