Here It Is, Folks: The Single Dumbest Question of 2017
It’s a goddamn travesty that the US government has been so slow to get aid to Puerto Rico. It’s even sadder that Pitbull (and Mark Cuban) have sent their own private planes to PR to assist, but our President*, who knows “all the best people”, who has his own private plane and knows many other people with private planes, hasn’t offered his own. - (Mashable)
This has been going around the last couple of days, but if you haven’t seen it, do so. Woke old Southern white dudes are like unicorns, so savor it. (Hat Tip: Stuart)
On that subject, Spike Lee was asked the dumbest question of 2017, all due respect to the Gold Star Family asking it.

Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy magazine, has passed away. He was 91. (PressWire)
Courtney Love and Frances Bean are hanging out together, I hope that means that Courtney has gotten her shit together. - (Lainey)
It’s Google’s 19th birthday and they have a fun doodle and game you can play! - (Google)
I spent over a decade in HR, so I’ve seen some DOOZIES when it comes to résumés and cover letters. I used to save my favorites (and they were my favorites - the more overwrought and flowery the better) and share some of the horrors (grammar, spelling, spelling their own name wrong!) with TK. This isn’t real, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. - (McSweeney’s)
J.K. Rowling was having a less-than-happy day and asked the Internet to cheer her up by sending otter pictures (because as everyone knows otters are THE BEST ANIMALS - this isn’t up for discussion!) and Internet complied! - (Distractify)
Remember the Mad Pooper in Colorado? Well, there’s an ALLEGED update. I’m calling bullshit on it. - (Dlisted)
PUMPKIN SPICE IN EVERYTHING THAT USED TO BE NICE! (Ok, but true confession, I do kind of want to try that maple pumpkin butter. It’s probably just because it has the word “butter” in it, though.) - (IB)
Awww, Julia Styles had a sweet secret wedding a few weeks ago! Good for her. It’s very cool when celebrities can have normal events without paparazzi or tabloids ruining it. - (Celebitchy)
Friend of the site Ranylt Richildis shared this on Facebook and I immediately ganked it for Pajiba Love. It’s fascinating and so very cool. A Medieval castle is being built in France, using only Medieval techniques and materials that would have been available at the time. - (Bored Panda)
When people think of #BannedBooks, they think of libraries and schools, but there are many ways to censor a book. The Comstock Laws made it illegal to send contraceptives, abortion information, sex toys, and "obscene" literature through the US Mail. William Faulkner’s The Sound and The Fury was one of many books deemed obscene. The current leader of Cannonball Read 9, vel veeter, reread the book and enjoyed it, though it is no Absalom Absalom. How would you define obscenity? (Cannonball Read 9)
Last night I linked to Natalie Morales’s Twitter account where she recounted the gross episode of how a scuzzo took upskirt photos of her at The Battle of the Sexes premiere and then sent them to her. Additionally, she wrote up her official statement. It’s worth a read, too.
Before this gets watered down or the word "vagina" gets censored out, here's my statement on this "wardrobe malfunction" b.s. pic.twitter.com/nE6CNAsovB— Natalie Morales (@nataliemorales) September 27, 2017
