Quitting Time Booster Shot

JewelryAd

Welcome to the Booster, where we’re giving the divine Ms. A
a hat tip for this tweet: “Yay, holidays. Time for
jewelry ads about bribing your unpleasant wife to fuck your stupid ass.” Here’s
the ad we at the QTBS would like to see to codify that idea…

– Sadness this week for the loss
of several gay/lesbian newspapers, which closed amid a series of issues.
Apparently, the alleged gay/straight divide isn’t as great as we all think.
Newspapers closing due to greed and mismanagement simply knows no bounds.

The Cleveland/Detroit game is being blacked out due to a
lack of a sellout.
Two 1-8 teams facing off in a battle of ineptitude.
Shocking, that people didn’t want to fork out hundreds of dollars to show up
and see this. We need a special trophy for something like this. Like a set of
crutches or a perhaps a golden Port-o-John.

– The phrase“$5 million award in beef jerky dispute” makes
this worth reading just on general principle.

– From the “I’m telling mom” file: The social media editor
at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ratted out a poster for posting a vulgarity by
calling up the school from where the post originated. Two things: 1) It’s
stupid that you decide to be a traffic cop for comments to that level. 2) The
dumber thing is that it wasn’t a kid who posted it, but rather a school
employee. Good grief…

– When you stand too close to certain people, sometimesit’s
tough not to paint you all with the same brush…

– From the“Do we really want to know?” department: We’re
looking at more and more detailed E.Coli testing on our meat. I think this is a
great idea in one way, but not so great in others. I remember a story on a
local TV news station where they had a high school kid come in and do a set of
swabs on their coffee cups and kitchen area as part of a sweeps week story. The
kid found enough germs in there to kill half the planet. I swear the monkey
from “Outbreak” had taken a shit in their coffee. Watching the anchor react to
these findings was priceless. It was like someone jut called him up and told
him that his last one-night stand just died of about six forms of VD.

Thanks for letting me share your air. Be back next week.

    I would like to build a time machine and go back in time and find the person who approved that story and KICK HIM IN THE BALLS.
    The Internet, killing journalism every day.
