Meester’s Sex Tape Afoot?

June 22nd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Leighton Meester is the most recent celebrity to find herself embroiled in a juicy sex tape scandal (As if nude photos of Rihanna weren’t enough to tide all you dirty voyeurs for the summer!)–oh, the gossip storm!

With the Season 3 premiere of Gossip Girl nearly three months away, the surfacing of the tape seems ill-timed for an intended publicity stunt, convincing me that Meester had no role in the video going public; she simply has a dick ex-boyfriend looking to make a quick buck off of the fact that he once tapped a young actress’s arse.

And so my heart breaks a little for the poor girl–although not because she got busted screwing on camera (which is pretty much her own irresponsible, 21st century problem).

But I can appreciate how much of a fucking bummer for her it is that she will heretoforth and forever (at least by modern standards) be regarded as a “footjob” queen. FOOTJOB!? What a mortifying way to make a porno debut.

Shame Sandwich

June 20th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

While trolling the news today for some hot DISGRASIAN bites, I came across this intriguing headline: “Deadbeat Parents? Sandwich of Shame for School Kids!”

Sandwich of Shame? Tell me more!

Then I read the LA Times story that the headline linked to:

When too many parents fell behind on paying for school lunches, the Chula Vista Elementary School District decided to get tough — on the children.

They told students with deadbeat parents that they had only one lunch choice: a cheese sandwich

The cheese sandwich, [parents] say, has become a badge of shame for the children, who get teased about it by their classmates. One student cried when her macaroni and cheese was replaced with a sandwich. A little girl hid in a restroom to avoid getting one. Many of the sandwiches end up untouched or tossed whole in the garbage. Sometimes kids pound them to pieces.

To the best of our knowledge, the cheese sandwich in question looks nothing like this.

Okay. Hold up.

What?!? Since when is a cheese sandwich considered a shame sandwich? How on earth could a slice of American cheese between two pieces of bread even qualify as a badge of shame?

Holding a sign outside of your school that says you’re a bully? That’s a badge of shame. Donning homemade clothes a few sizes too small in the 6th grade when everybody else is wearing Polo just cuz it’d make your grandma and her sewing fingers happy? Sure. Wearing last night’s sequined cocktail dress and smeared makeup while trudging home from a lousy lay across your college quad at 8 am when everyone’s hurrying to breakfast and Bio Lab? I wouldn’t know from, er, personal, um, experience…

But a cheese sandwich? Never.
