Time for another quick check-in with stories what were clogging up our browser tabs all week but we couldn't quite bring ourselves to do a full post on, but which were too wonderfully stoopit to ignore altogether. Also a fine excuse to start day-drinking!

Andrea Tantaros Is Fit To Be Tied

Sorry to disappoint, but Fox News professional idiot Andrea Tantaros does not have a fun hobby involving safewords, as far as we know. Instead, she's written a book on the completely novel idea that feminism has made women's lives miserable or some such, and explaining that ladies can't really "have it all" unless they find the right man, because that's just how it is, and also shame on how feminism is ruining the world for manly men, too. It's called Tied Up in Knots: How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable, and we have provided an Amazon linky right there because if anyone's dumb enough to buy it, we want a cut of their folly. You can find a very special piece by Tantaros over at the New York Post, full of such insights as

  • Women should never stop wanting to lead and captain their own course, but every good captain needs a worthy co-pilot. Females shouldn’t be afraid to sit back and relinquish control by letting their man lead, or help.
  • "A lot of feminine-looking women and women in general have assumed the role of a man, and it’s driving the real men away. We are talking about women who have lost sight of, or lost the willingness to accept the primal dynamic between the sexes." (That's not Tantaros; that's an expert she quotes)
  • My life has gotten exponentially better since I surrendered my independent streak to my worthy and doting partner. Sure, I can pay my own bills and open my doors but quite frankly, I don’t want to anymore.

Sounds "empowering"!

The Key Word Is Survival On The New Frontier

Need to stock your fallout shelter or private prepper bunker for when the Shit Hits the Fan and society crumbles after Obama declares himself dictator for life? Or just looking for the perfect accent for your Fallout 4 theme party? Gallatin County, Montana has a forgotten stockpile of 36 Cold War-era sanitation kits, meant to provide minimal terlet facilities for fallout shelters, dating from 1964, according to a shipping label. They'd been stored in a garage at the county fairgrounds and the county is looking to auction the darn things off.

Inside: one toilet seat, one commode liner, 10 rolls of toilet paper, 60 sanitary napkins, 12 packets of commode chemical, one pair of plastic gloves, one tie wire, one can opener, 70 plastic water cups with lids, and 5 feet of rubber tubing. Enough, the drum says, to supply 50 people.

“The kits themselves are a pretty cool reminder of the Cold War,” said Shane Hope, an archeologist on the county’s Historic Preservation Board. “Of the subtle but real fear of a nuclear World War III” [...]

The county auditor’s staff called the Department of Defense to see if they wanted them back. They didn’t.

Shoot! A fella could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff!

The county will first offer the kits to museums, then auction off whatever's not taken. No date for the auction or possible prices have been set yet. Get one of these babies, and you'll have the right dynamic for the Poo Frontier!

And yes, we are required by law to close with this:

Oddly Enough, This Story Is NOT From Florida:

Your Weird Crime Story of the week comes from Eugene, Oregon, where a gentleman named Nathan Allen McClain was arrested on multiple charges after burglarizing his own pet shop. McClain's wife reported a break-in at the Zany Zoo pet shop in Eugene in March, saying the robbers had made off with a whole bunch of money from the sale of Girl Scout Cookies, a laptop, and a bush baby, a small nocturnal primate named "Gooey."

Mr. McClain was busted March 17 in Eugene after using the pilfered Girl Scout money to hire a prostitute, to whom he also gave Gooey as a tip. He was then arrested a second time on March 19 in Albany "because he walked out of a porn shop next door to the police department and was apparently under the influence of methamphetamine."

You never would have dreamed meth was involved in this story, would you?

Officer Rick Lowe was perfectly professional about the whole thing, explaining to KGW Teevee, "I’ve worked prostitution for eight and a half years. This is my first time ever recovering a monkey from a prostitute.”

Gooey has been placed in an animal shelter and is doing well, and while a Bush Baby, or more properly a galago, is a primate and not a monkey, Yr. Wonkette encourages you to begin using the phrase "WHOREMONKEY" at such times as you feel appropriate. And if we had a million dollars, we'd buy you a whoremonkey. Haven't you always wanted a whoremonkey?

Update / Programming Note: Oh, yeah, tonight is Barry Bamz's final White House Correspondents Dinner, hosted by Larry Wilmore, so it might actually be worth watching? The festivities begin at 7:00 correction: 9:00 EDT, so we will have an open thread for your snarking enjoyment, because we love you.

Doktor Zoom

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
