WHAT THEY MEAN BY “UGLY ODDS”

Calling all gambling addicts! Tired of throwing your money away on horses, baseball, and boxing? Why not bet on a contest that you can also jerk it to?

Betting odds for the 2008 Miss Universe pageant were recently massaged-and-released, and Miss Venezuela, Dayana Mendoza (pictured left), is the front-runner (+625 odds). The only lady of Asian Persuasian to make it into the top ten is Miss India, Simran Kaur Mundi (+1100).

Three other Asian contestants–Malaysia (+7000), Sri Lanka (+8000), and Japan (+8000)–are languishing in the bottom 20:


So, if you’re feeling lucky, put your money where your mouth wants to be. I mean, “is.”

WHAT THEY MEAN BY “GAY”

Y’all know I love me a gay. Even a Tyson Gay, the U.S. sprinter who won the 100 M dash at the Olympic Trials this weekend. (Gay’s time of 9.68 seconds did not break the world record of 9.72 seconds because he was aided by tailwind). My love for this Gay is rooted mostly in the fact that he, in addition to being awesomely fast, gives good headline:

“GAY MAKES HIS POINT”

“Gay’s display dazzling”

“Is Gay’s big day too good to be true?”

“Gay blows field away (with wind’s help)”

Christian news site OneNewsNow is not with me on this, as they republished an AP story on Gay’s weekend victory by auto-replacing the word “gay” with “homosexual.”


OneNewsNow apparently considers “gay” to be a bad word.

What a bunch of homosexuals!

Imagine the unfettered joy I experienced this morning when I read this headline: “Gay Completes Double Victory in Style.”

I was, like, “Go on witcha bad self. Work it, gurl!”

Tyson Gay

…until I realized that the paper was talking about a U.S. sprinter. Oh. Yay…Tyson?

It’s just not as fun.
