Now THAT’s What You Call a Prayer

by Joey deVilla on July 26, 2011

One of my favourite scenes from Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is the “Saying Grace” scene. “Dear Lord Tiny Christmas Baby Jesus…”

The lessons from this scene weren’t lost on the guy leading the pre-race prayer at a recent NASCAR, right down to the little bits of product placement (hey, Jesus kicked the moneychangers out of the temple, not the auto parts guys) and the reference to the “smokin’ hot wife”:

From now on, whenever I’m asked to say Grace before dinner, I’m ending it with “Boogedah, boogedah, boogedah, A-men!”

A book commits suicide every time you watch Jersey Shore: photo of books falling off a shelf.

Not just books, but knowledge in general. By now, you’ve probably heard Snooki’s explanation of why ocean water tastes salty:

'Snooki' from 'Jersey Shore': Everybody Google it, because that's why the water is salty. Fuckin whale sperm.

I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t believe me, so here’s the clip:

And yes, surveillance is one of those words that English borrows from French.

“Accordions are for Nerds”

by Joey deVilla on July 24, 2011

Recently seen at a Guitar Center store:

Guitar Center price sign: Used Acordion [sic] Camerano | Who says accordians [sic] are for nerds?? | Sure way to get a girlfriend in no time | Goo dluck getting the smell out | And yes, Accordians [sic] are for nerds. It's science.

Yes, accordions are for nerds. I’m cool with that. I’m less cool with Guitar Center’s inability to spell “accordion”.

As for attracting the ladies, your mileage may vary, but in the accordion’s defence, I present exhibit A:

Are You Raising a Douchebag?

by Joey deVilla on July 23, 2011


Are you raising a douchebag

My only nitpick with this poster: the kid should be wearing at least one polo shirt with a popped collar, and better yet, two or three of them in layers. And where’s the backwards baseball cap?

Thanks to Duty over at Certified Bullshit Technician for the image, who says “Ask yourself daily…are you?
