Great Moments In Plush

Beanie boobies!


Each character has a distinct personality and background. Funwari Milk-chan (pictured above, center) is easygoing. Despite her dream of growing large, she remains small. She loves collagen, and napping is her favorite pastime. Can Milk-san (top left) is a celebrity entertainer, always aglitter. She has an American boyfriend and loves going to beauty salons. Ganguro Milk-chan (bottom left), despite being a gyaru with a pierced nipple, is mature and level-headed. She spends all her time practicing para-para dance, and she enjoys purikura. Peach Milk-chan (top right), a spider-hating fashionista who is scary when angry, is well-informed and into anything lowbrow. Milko-chan (bottom right) is still a baby – but a genius. She loves to invent things, and her pacifier apparently holds the secret to her smarts.

Alrighty then. I’m just going to try to forget I ever saw this…

Headline Of The Day

From the Daily Mail:

Lesbian foot specialist struck off after posing in bondage gear, and saying ‘f*** Easter’ in front of nun

These things happen, I guess.

Yes, I am finally caught up on processing photos. 3500 photos between June and Labor Day. Oof.

Hopefully I’ll be a little less distracted now, but who knows.

What To Do And What Not To Do

In case you hadn’t heard, Pete Stark is shrill:

But you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President’s amusement….

But President Bush’s statements about children’s health shouldn’t be taken any more seriously than his lies about the war in Iraq. The truth is that Bush just likes to blow things up. In Iraq, in the United States and in Congress.

Now, of course, the Right (the same people who keep saying Democrats support the terrorists and want us to fail in Iraq) are in full swoon and demanding an apology. Stark and Pelosi are providing a teaching moment of sorts in their responses to the phony outrage.

The Right Way:

After numerous Republicans called on him to apologize, Stark said it was they who should be apologizing, for failing to provide the votes to override Bush’s veto.

The Wrong Way:

“While members of Congress are passionate about their views, what U.S. Rep. Stark said during the debate was inappropriate and distracted from the seriousness of the subject at hand – providing health care for America’s children,” Pelosi said.

It’s “General Betray Us” all over again – except now criticizing the president is out of bounds, too.

You know, just like during the Clinton Years.
