Barack Obama Thanks Bristol Palin for Unsolicited Parental Advice

Barack Obama made certain that he acknowledged the wise words he received indirectly Friday from Bristol Palin with regards to his stance on same-sex marriage.

“We are just incredibly thankful to have someone as mature and wise as Bristol Palin taking such an interest in the way Michelle and I are raising our girls, Sasha and Malia,” said the President from one of the many stops he made today on the campaign trail. Continue Reading

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo) chose International Women’s Day to talk about hoes. Here’s how he chose to honor March 8, 2012 on Twitter:

Today is Natl Agriculture Day. Hope you’ll join me to recognize the vital benefits agriculture plays in our everyday lives.

Hey, Mr. Blunt, today also happens to be National Panic Day. I’d like to invite everyone to celebrate by taking a moment to freak out about just how scary the Republican Party has become.

Anderson Cooper Gives In and Asks Kathy Griffin on a Real Date

Friends of both Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper were elated when told that Cooper has finally given in to Griffin’s amorous advances and agreed to take her on a date.

“It was the next logical step,” claims Mitzi Moloney, one of Griffin’s closest friends. “After all, Kathy did spend the weekend at Anderson’s house doing everything but humping the furniture to get his attention.” Continue Reading

Michele Bachmann Claims God Sometimes Tells Her to Say Stupid Things

Michele Bachmann appeared on CBS’s Face the Nation Sunday to cover her tracks yet again with the familiar line “Of course, that’s not what I meant to say. I was just trying to be funny.” Bachmann was trying to explain away some comments she made last month linking Hurricane Irene and the DC earthquake directly to God’s displeasure with America.

Bachmann is becoming known for her proselytizing on the campaign trail and admits it is becoming a bit of a problem.

“I know I should be able to tell when God is speaking directly through me and when he’s just trying to have a little fun,” said Bachmann. “But honestly, sometimes, as the words are coming out of my mouth I think ‘whoops, God’s pulling another fast one on me,’ but by then, it’s usually too late.”

Bernanke Claims Quantity Not Quality Goal of New Stimulus Plan

In a shocking move this morning, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced yet another new plan to stimulate the US economy with what has been labelled ‘Quantative Easing Number Six Thousand Eight Hundred and Forty Seven.’

“Clearly the other six thousand eight hundred and forty six stimulus attempts have not had the desired effect of boosting the economy and increasing our employment rates,” remarked chairman Bernanke to a room full of unemployed journalists who’d run out of benefits and had nowhere else to be.

Glossy News Rumor Mill on the Fritz

Glossy News is usually the first to get all the news that is fit to print out there for everyone in a somewhat timely manner. However, due to mechanical failures which have occurred in the past couple of weeks, the conveyor belt that runs the rumor mill has gone kaput.

Stories are being churned out manually, which is causing a backlog.

It’s slow going but it is going. You’ll see your stories up on the front page just as soon as possible.

The rumors being circulated that Lucille Ball has come back from the dead and is messing everything up with liquored-up candies are false. There is liquor involved, but no candies that we are aware of.

Thanks to all who write for Glossy News and thanks, especially, for your patience and understanding.

Paypal Founder Invests $1.25 Million to Create Floating Libertarian Habitat

Billionaires with more money than they know what to do with are flocking to a company known as Seasteading Institute to get in on the ground floor, so to speak, on building floating countries (oil-platform-like structures) where they can exercise their Libertarian rights such as no socialist policies, no gun control and no federal taxes.

Wow, that’s a great idea. Throw a bunch of billionaires into a tiny space, give them plenty of weapons and watch them try to govern themselves. They’d be at each other’s throats faster than dingoes on an antelope.

Lady Gaga Mistaken for Letterman Band Leader Paul Shaffer

Lady Gaga Mistaken for Letterman Band Leader Paul Shaffer

It was quite an embarrassing evening for Lady Gaga Saturday when fans approached her from behind and began shouting “Paul, Paul Shaffer, can I have your autograph?”

Gaga has recently gone bald and while many love her no matter what she looks like, most agree that the look is not one of her best.

“I swear to God,” said one female fan, “I could have sworn it was Paul Shaffer when I approached from the rear. Although,” she says, “I did a double take because it didn’t make sense to me that Shaffer would be wearing short shorts and fishnet stockings.”

Dear Hostway: You are Terrible

Your service is lacking, your customer care is almost completely absent, and your attention to customers like me who have paid you ten-fold the cost of domain registration ($35 bucks a year, come on, get real!) I have only one thing to say… buh bye now.

There are many domain registrars out there that are less expensive, most of whom offer superior support. These guys are monumental jokes at best, and Ive seen a lackluster monument or two in my time. Given the choice, avoid Hostway whatever you do.

Clowns, dude. Complete and total clowns.

(Lost two domains through them years ago, but today it’s all about the fact that they should have my billing info on file, and I can’t even reach a real human being to confirm it… with what they charge, there’s simply no excuse for this.)

Steve Tyler Of Aerosmith Has Published His Autobiography

Erstwhile rocker and latter day Idol judge replacement Stephen Tyler has announced that he will soon release an autobiography. It’s quite an accomplishment, considering he’s never read a book in his life, but critics have already begun to pan the tome for its ostensible lack of Liv Tyler content, even from her early years.
