Think of the Children

I hate the term “For the children”. No wait. That’s not exactly right. I hate the things that done in the name of those words. I know, I know… it’s complicated. I’m asking parents to you know… be responsible for their children and all. You look at the… more »

"with thunderous applause..." says Padme in the latest (and not so greatest) of the Star Wars sagas. Transparent references to Bush non-withstanding, the movie was pretty lame. Scenes seemed to last no more than a miniute or so and the dialogue was more… more »

I read an article hypothesizing on the nature of female orgasms. Fascinating that you can be paid to research a topic, even a decidedly FUN one (yeah I didn't say 'stimulating' now did I?) and officially draw a conclusion that there IS no conclusion.… more »

Canines and Carnality

Ok I don't get it - and that's not just an opening line - I seriously don't get it. I'd like someone out there to explain why - in the last 15 or so referring searches to 'World of Suck' the words "dog" and "suck" have appeared together, in many cases… more »
