Go Fug Yourself: Fugs and Pieces

Oh those fug girls, how they make me laugh. I've been reading gofugyourself for years and it keeps getting better and better. The site is basically two very witty and fashion-loving ladies who like to dissect the outfits worn by celebrities and either commend them for their (or their stylist's) good taste, or ask them rhetorically how much crack they've smoked to leave the house in such a ridiculous getup. 

The ladies over at Go Fug Yourself have started to post something a little different on Fridays. Fugs and Pieces is little things from the internet that are funny, interesting, heartwarming or down right disturbing. Its everything you need to see without spending hours surfing for it. I love it. I look forward to their shared links every Friday. An example of this weeks Fugs and Pieces. And from the list, a little treat: When vandalism is funny.

Cadburys Mini Eggs

Oh Cadburys, you are always a constant in my life. Guys come and go, fashions change, but you are always delicious.

Easter has been and gone, and here in the US they do it a little differently. At home in England, we get big Easter eggs with chocolate bars and such; but here they have Easter candy, like pastel coloured m&ms, chocolate bunnies and weird marshmallow monstrosities called peeps.

What I like to do, the day after a big holiday like Valentines or Easter, is go to Walmart or CVS and pick up the candy half off. This Monday, I went to my local CVS and what do I find? Cadburys mini eggs! They have very little Cadburys chocolate over here, and it doesn’t taste quite right, but it’s better than eating Hershey’s which tastes like sick, literally.

I was overjoyed. A taste of home, with 75% off! I bought three large bags and they’re all gone. There’s nothing better than that sugar shell wrapped around a little egg of chocolate heaven.

Thanks Cadburys for being there for me, yet again.

Oh Glee, why are you so awesome? Is it because you have lines like, “I'm reasonably confident that you will be adding revenge to the long list of things that you are no good at; Right next to being married, running a high school Glee Club, and finding a hairstyle that doesn't make you look like a lesbian.” And “I’m rolling on a fistful of horse tranquilizers. I can’t feel my lips.”

Perhaps it’s the fact that Jane Lynch is a comic genius and cannot deliver a line badly, ever.

Perhaps it's the writer's huge balls, writing story-lines that involve making fun of deaf people, wheelchair users, homosexuals and Jewish people, but always redeeming themselves.

Perhaps it’s because Corey Monteith who plays Finn on the show is super cute and adorable, even though he really can’t sing all that great.

Or perhaps it’s because all of these things combined makes Glee one of the best shows on television right now.

Glee returns to Fox in the US on April 13th.

War of the Roses

I have a bad habit of wanting to be all up in everybody's business. I can't help it. I don't exactly pry, but if you're going to lay it all out there for a perfect stranger to take in, I'll certainly give you the attention you're looking for.This is why I love War of the Roses. I thought it was a KDWB, (a Minnesota radio station) exclusive segment, but I guess radio stations all over the country have this feature.

Here's the premise: A lady, well, usually a lady, will get in touch with KDWB because she suspects that her significant other is cheating on her. A female DJ, will call then suspected cheater and pretend to be from a cell phone company, and she's wanting to give a short survey asking the suspect about their satisfaction with their cell service, and in return they can send romantic, red roses to a person of their choice. Three questions later, all hell breaks loose.

There is no happy way to end War of the Roses, but hilarity always ensues. Either, the person sends the flowers to a person who isn't on the phone, and leaves the culptit fumbling for an explanation or excuse as to why they're sending Sarah romantic red roses, and not Jane. Or the person sends the flowers to the 'right' person, but is pissed that their business is all up on the radio.

To hear an epic War of the Roses, visit, and look under the Dave On Demand feature.
