VIDEO: Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph Describe the Journey of a Fart

by Accidental Bear

I finally cleaned myself up from my death that occurred from laughing so much at the film Bridesmaids, and now, my laughter has gone amuck again.

This clip from the French Bridesmaids junket was uploaded to YouTube over a week ago, but only now is its splendor started to light up newsfeeds and Facebook scrolls across our great nation. Here’s all you need to know: Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph are quizzed about scatological humor, and they both (along with the giddy interviewer) devolve into hysterics. It may be the first and last time you ever see movie stars really laugh. via www.movieline.com

Accidental Bear Celebrity Paul Bunyan

by Accidental Bear

Paul Bunyan is a mythological lumberjack who is usually described as a giant as well as a lumberjack of unusual skill. The character was first documented in the work of U.S. journalist James MacGillivray in 1910. In 1916, as part of an advertising campaign for a logging company, advertisement writer William Laughead reworked the old logging tales into that of a giant lumberjack and gave birth to the modern Paul Bunyan legend, thereby making Paul Bunyan a fakelore character.

Andrew Johnson, Gay Prison Guard, Barred From Wearing Uniform in WeHo Pride Parade by Homophobic Dept. of Corrections

by Accidental Bear

I have often wondered while at a gay pride, street fair or parade in SF if there are any regulations about wearing official uniforms while off duty as costumes. I mean, (coughs) I have been around the block a few times and have been felt up, flogged and had my boots shined by men in uniform. Basically anything you can think of on this side of legal. It was all for fun and games, I never asked for identification for legitimacy of costume. Good luck regulating this one California Department of Corrections. You have obviously never been to a gay pride parade and see the way you are emulated. ~AB

​We at the Weekly usually beef with the California Department of Corrections on more budget-related issues like the rich, powerful prison-guard union’s ability to twist the state Legislature to its will and preserve bloated benefit packages in a time of fiscal crisis.

 But on a more basic human-rights note, prison guard Andrew Johnson reveals today that the department has a raging case of homophobia, to boot. Johnson claims he was denied permission to march in this Sunday’s West Hollywood gay pride parade (so stoked) while wearing his really quite fabulous CDCR uniform.

Gloria Allred to the rescue!

Pride Panders to Ancient Gay Stereotypes, Loses Touch with the 21st-century Man and Woman

by Accidental Bear

STEREOTYPES

When Toronto Pride rolls into town, the large attendance always reminds of us just how much the city supports its gay community. Sure, hate crimes still exist, the city recently threatened to pull Pride’s funding, and inappropriate f-words are flung from passing vehicles, but for the most part, Toronto is a safe and relatively easy place for gay men and women to live. Then Tourism Toronto, in partnership with Pride Toronto, launched its P90X parody Pride Pump 2000x, filled with the dainty, over-sexed, workout-obsessed (read: gay archstereotypes). We’re curious as to when an episode of Queer as Folk re-emerged as a gay factory standard. via www.torontolife.com

X-Men Born This Way (Acoustic Parody)

by Accidental Bear

Doesn’t matter if you love men or X-M-E-N!

We saw X-men First Class over the weekend and it inspired us to write this song in parody of Born This Way by Lady Gaga. It’s rough at the moment but if it gets a good response we’ll try to make a full version of the song
