As someone who will be a bridesmaid for the first time this Sunday, I am sure that I will be hearing many speeches that will probably make me cringe like Owen Weber’s maid of honor parody speech.
Ahhhhh, weddings. So much fun.
Listen to some solid tunes and watch this guy fling his hair around.
Safety is obviously not a consideration here. Who has time for safety when there’s so much awesome protecting you from moving blades?
I never thought in my life I would yell the word “PREACH!” at someone named Mama Tits, but it happened this weekend during the Seattle Pride Parade. A group of extremist Christian protesters attempted to block the beginning of the Seattle Pride Parade before its commencement , shouting through a mega phone about the attendants’ sinful lifestyle and how, of course, they were all going to hell.
Mama Tits, a well-known drag queen and staple in every year’s Pride celebrations in Seattle, was not having it this year. She grabbed the microphone and proceeded to lay down some knowledge, which I’m sure fell on deaf ears. In an interview with Seattle Gay Scene:
I saw them coming up the road pre-Parade and looked at Sylvia and DonnaTella and said, ‘Ladies, let’s make a wall!’ Before I knew it, I was standing tits to nose with the leader guy on the megaphone. It felt like I had the strength of all the people who had ever been hurt by these people standing right behind be me giving me power! I was almost in auto-pilot mode from my days as a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence. I planted myself in his path and wouldn’t move. When he walked around me, I got back in front of him again and again.I stared him in the eyes and could see the pain in his eyes, I could see he was scared and he should have been. He tried to hit me with his sign, but like Bianca Del Rio says ‘Not Today, Satan!’ pushed his sign away from my face and hair, because you DO NOT TOUCH my hair. And, it was all I could do to NOT get violent, but I didn’t because once that happens, we all lose.
NOT TODAY, SATAN. AMEN. You can check out the “Wall of Love” they created to block the protesters from advancing any further in the article here.
What do you do when you have a surplus of wood and a little extra time on your hands? Create an obstacle course for squirrels in your backyard! Which is exactly what Steve Barley did with his son.
Bonus points for being British and narrating the entire thing. Because true narration of wildlife requires a British accent.
Awkward rapping? Check. American flags? Check. Eagles? Double check. A broad sense of undeniable freedom to wear mom shorts whenever the hell you want? AMERICAN CHECK.
Thanks Rosa G for the new song that I will be playing at this year’s BBQ on repeat.
