A week after posting — and subsequently deleting — a blog post about “men’s rights,” Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams continues to be criticized for comparing society’s treatment of women to the coddling of children and mentally handicapped persons, while lamenting the unfair treatment of men. In his lengthy post (which you can read here), Adams writes:
“The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone. You don’t argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn’t eat candy for dinner. You don’t punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don’t argue when a women tells you she’s only making 80 cents to your dollar. It’s the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles.” READ FULL STORY
If you have school-aged children under the age of 7 or so, you probably already know that today is Theodore Geisel’s birthday. That, of course, would be Dr. Seuss, who would turn 107 today — just 105 years older than Cindy Lou Who. The National Education Association has built its Read Across America campaign around Seuss’ birthday, which explained my daughter strutting about in her classroom-made Cat in the Hat hat.
By now, everyone of every age has grown up with Seuss’ sadistic rhyming characters, from the mischievous Cat in the Hat to the incorrigible Sam-I-Am. (As a kid, I was especially fond of Fox in Socks.) Once you have children, though, your relationship with these beloved classics will be severely tested — or at least redefined. One Fish, Two Fish is not without its charms, but how does that nostalgia hold up after you’ve read it aloud 4,210 times in a single afternoon to a princess who doesn’t even seem to be paying attention except when you attempt to skip a page? I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Perhaps my shoes are simply too tight. READ FULL STORY
What if Wicked became a Disney animated film? Animator Heidi Jo Gilbert put together these storyboards, and they’re pretty fantastic. The doe-eyed Disney princess look, the quirky skyline, the “I want” anthem: in just two minutes, this clip manages to cover all the requisite Disney bases except for “excitable sidekick.” I know this movie might never happen, but it’s still nice to daydream, no?

What if Up was a live-action Disney movie from the 1960s, starring Spencer Tracy and Kirk Douglas? Well, it would be awesome if this “premake” trailer is any indication. I particularly like the god-awful ’60s version of Kevin, who looks like a cross between a parrot and regret. Perfection! READ FULL STORY
Toucan Sam and the Dough Boy go head-to-head; Mikey takes on the Where's the Beef Lady. It's Day 2 of the Big Shill's Sweet 16
It’s almost the Super Bowl, PopWatchers, (R.I.P. Jets) and shill is in the air. As such, we continue to whittle down the number of contenders in our Big Shill bracket game with two match-ups that are likely to put much strain on the heart of your inner commercial-watching child. Can you take the heat? I certainly hope you can, because you have no choice. Well, technically you do. And here they are:
Toucan Sam vs. the Pillsbury Dough Boy
Mikey from Life Cereal vs. Wendy’s “Where’s the Beef” Lady
Mrs. Butterworth takes on the Cap'n, Trix rabbit faces the Rice Krispies gang: It's Day 1 of the Big Shill's Sweet 16
How do you like your breakfast, boys and girls? Because that’s essentially what Day 1 of our Big Shill bracket game’s Sweet 16 round is all about. If you respond to a military bearing, maybe the Cap’n is your man. If you prefer the sweet, sappy taste of grandma’s home cooking, Mrs. Butterworth is the clear option. If you have a soft spot for rabbits, your inner-Lennie will insist on Trix, and if you like to converse with your cereal, Rice Krispies will have something to say in the matter. So start our day off right and vote for your favorite sultans of shill.
Snap, Crackle, and Pop vs. The Trix rabbit
