Did Anthony Weiner Tweet a Picture of His Weiner? I love Politics

by Accidental Bear

Will solve this fast and easy. Just raise your hand if you tweeted a picture of your bulge? This just goes to prove that politicians can be very normal too.

Via Gawker

Did liberal hero and would-be Mayor of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner (D – N.Y.) Tweet a picture of his own, underwear-clad erection last night? Conservative bloggers sure seem to hope so!
The pic, according to BigGovernment.com writer “Publius”, was posted last night to Weiner’s official account on yFrog, the Twitter picture service, and sent out on his Twitter feed. It was apparently quickly deleted, but not before Publius grabbed what he says is a screenshot of the yFrog page. (The original Tweet still exists on archiving site Tweet Congress.)

Weiner (pictured above with his wife, Huma Abedin, and the only other man in Congress whose name would make a sex scandal twice as fun) quickly Tweeted that his Facebook was hacked, which — even though the picture was, as far as we can tell, not posted to Facebook — seems to be a reference to the dickshot Tweet; today, he Tweeted “Touche Prof Moriarity. More Weiner Jokes for all my guests! #Hacked!” Stranger things have happened, we suppose!

Muni News: Husband Of Man Killed By Candy-Bar Unwrapping Muni Driver Sues Transit Agency

by Accidental Bear

Well break me off a piece of that! How tragic.~AB

via sfappeal.com

As we reported as the tragic events unfolded, 49-year-old Scott Whitsett was died after being hit by a 14-Mission bus on the morning of April 21 of last year. And now, SFPD’s investigation into the death concluded, the man’s husband has taken matters into his own hands and filed a wrongful-death suit.

Whitsett was reportedly struck on Mission St. between Beale and Main, first getting pinned between the 14-Mission and 14-Mission Limited and then run over just outside the LexisNexis office where he’d worked since 1998. He was hit at around 11am and sadly pronounced dead at 11:46am at SF General. Both drivers of the buses were placed on non-driving status and drug/alcohol tested.

As the Ex reports, Whitsett’s husband, Theodore Glaza filed the suit against the SFMTA in SF’s Superior Court, accusing Muni of carelessness and negligence. Glaza’s civil complaint cites one of the bus drivers, Kimberley Faye Johnson as being distracted by, of all things, a candy bar.

Johnson was driving the 14-Mission at the time and was reportedly unwrapping a candy bar while doing so. The Ex reports that when she saw Whitsett crossing, she accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake, pinning Whitsett to her bus and the 14-Mission Limited and killing him.

The wrongful death suit was filed Monday.

Was Captain Cave Man a Bear?

by Accidental Bear

Captain Caveman via Wikipedia
Captain Caveman (voiced by Mel Blanc) is the main character, a caveman who is thousands of years old (his exact age is never disclosed). He can pull various objects from his body hair. He can also fly, but his flying power always seems to fail him at the worst possible moment. Sometimes he would attribute this mishap to an energy shortage (“Uh oh! Bad time for energy crisis.” CRASH!), which was a pun on the gasoline rationing shortages of the late 1970s. He speaks in stereotypical “caveman-talk”, replacing subjective pronouns with their objective equivalents and dropping articles such as “the” (for example, “Me know where bad guys are hiding.”), and often mumbles the nonsense phrase “unga bunga”. He also has a bad habit of occasionally eating large non-food objects in one gulp (i.e. bicycles, TV sets, safes, table lamps), and the Teen Angels occasionally have to stop him from eating potential clues that will help them to solve the mystery.

Etiquette Expert: ‘Should I shave my beard for a job interview?’

by Accidental Bear

How does one attain the status of etiquette expert? The term makes me want to projectile vomit a little. As far as shaving your beard for an interview, the thought process goes much deeper than your whiskers. You have to be honest with yourself and ask, “Do I want to work at an establishment where they make you curb your beard?” or think about the other list of rules that may apply if beard trimming is a concern; dress code, piercings or tattoos etc. If we are talking six figures, I say trim the bitch and after interview let it grow back little by little, but you will have to show an outstanding performance at work and then you will be good as gold even with a ZZ Top beard. ~AB

Here is what the “expert” says, via 365gay.com

Q: I usually sport a two- to three-day growth of beard as part of my personal look, and I wear an earring—kind of a hipster look, you might say. Now I’m thinking of getting a tattoo, and I was going to put it on my forearm; but my boyfriend suggested I locate it in a more private place so it won’t be visible when I’m looking for a new job. What do you suggest, Mr. Manners?

A: I wish that everyone heeded the age-old admonition not to judge a book by its cover. Alas, books and people are judged by their covers and their clothes—or, in your case, personal style decisions such as facial hair and body art. This might sound a bit stodgy, but the fact is that how you present yourself in the workplace does matter, whether you’ve just graduated from college or you’re in the middle of your career.

If you have doubts about how to dress or groom yourself, I think it’s generally best to err on the conservative side. Those of us who wouldn’t even consider wearing a suit to work often put one on when we’re interviewing for a job. The same could be said for getting a shorter-than-usual haircut. But closely consider the company in question: The look you put together when employed at a software startup or as a barista will certainly differ from the way you suit up for a bank, law firm, or CPA consultancy.

Now, sometimes companies make life easier—at least in terms of clarity—when they post an official dress code. For instance, I know of several large companies whose dress codes not only prohibit men from wearing earrings; facial hair is also verboten. As an example, one major U.S. company has only recently started allowing mustaches. The company’s policies state that mustaches must be neatly trimmed, no longer than the corners of the mouth, and grown during the employee’s vacation. As if that weren’t enough, the policies also say that sideburns cannot pass the earlobes. Got that? On the other hand, many police departments allow mustaches (no surprise there), but untrimmed beards are prohibited because they’re said to look unprofessional.

Courtney Love has said she Believes Lady Gaga Could End up as a ‘lonely drag queen’

by Accidental Bear

If it came down to a street brawl between Ms Love and Gaga, I think it would be a pretty fair match. Love would most likely fight dirty and Gaga would probably try to drowned Love with magic pixie dust. I would put money down that Love would be standing at the end though. ~ AB

via www.metro.co.uk

Both women have caused their fair share of controversy over the years, with neither famed for being shy and retiring, and Courtney acknowledged there are similarities between the pair.

However, she admitted in an interview with The Fix she was worried about how Lady Gaga will cope in the future.
‘She’s very young, and she’s very talented, but she doesn’t seem to have any female friends. Or any straight guy friends for that matter, ‘the former Hole singer said.
‘Instead, she surrounds herself with this coterie of gay stylists and advisers who’ve turned her into this weird, sexless Barbie doll.’
