I've wondered about something similar, like if you pay to put Justice League stuff on your party napkins, or if you're making a DC universe cartoon movie, do you automatically get the entire JL or do you have to license the characters individually? I watched one movie on Netflix where there didn't seem to be any… » 9/15/14 10:42pm Yesterday 10:42pm

My brother writes a regular email for his clients, and the last one dealt with 9/11 and the financial markets. I was like, "I hope you explained that it was an INSIDE JOB." I figure he has at least a couple clients that would read that and be like , "damn straight." » 9/14/14 7:50am Sunday 7:50am

What really gets me is the STUNNING array of businesses focused on separating an already broke person from the last little bit of money they have. Check-cashing places, payday loans, rent-to-own, and those people who say they can somehow get the IRS or your mortgage company to settle for pennies on the dollar. » 9/13/14 11:38pm Saturday 11:38pm

Have you heard of Axe Cop? It's a comic book artist illustrating his five year old brother's ideas and dialogue. The hero is a good guy that kills the bad guys with his axe, and it's a great way to show how truly horrifying little kid ideas of justice are. » 9/13/14 7:40pm Saturday 7:40pm

Hey Reno, I wonder if you could help me out? I was talking with my mom tonight, and she's suddenly obsessed with brussels griffons. She says that one came up and pressed its nose to her leg, and when she looked down, she saw the cutest little monkey face and monkey eyes looking up at her. Now she wants one pretty… » 9/08/14 12:14am 9/08/14 12:14am

I sat through traffic court a couple of times, and while I knew my city has a Ukrainian immigrant community, I was shocked by how overrepresented they were in court. I'm cynical enough that the parade of blacks and latinos wasn't a surprise, but definitely caught off guard by the full time Russian interpreter on… » 9/05/14 4:21pm 9/05/14 4:21pm

I get the compliment sandwich sometimes, which I personally find irritating. I can take the criticism without being a big baby about it, and when someone shoehorns in a little bit of praise before and after telling me how I screwed up, it makes me wonder whether they think I really am a big whiny diaper baby. It… » 9/05/14 1:11pm 9/05/14 1:11pm

My vote for most egregious misuse of the term is Karen Handel's "Planned Bullyhood" book. She was the VP at Susan G. Komen who cooked up the plan to defund Planned Parenthood, which ended up pretty much devastating the charity and cost her her job. If you're curious, she calls everyone bullies and takes zero… » 9/05/14 1:32am 9/05/14 1:32am
