The One Where The Yapping Hand Job Picks A Scab (Update)S

We get a massive amount of tips in our inbox each week. Some are pretty interesting, but don't get published for one reason or another.

It's usually because they're just so absurd or really lack even the most tenuous of news angles to give them the go-ahead. Other times it's because they're just absolute horseshit. But every Friday until we get sick of running them, we'll present to you some of these not-so-shiny gems. All items should be treated as [Sic'd]. Enjoy...

Fire Up The Herd

I assume you guys heard about this already. Big Lead has excerpts:

Let's Read Some...

These blogs … they're like the high school goth chick who hates the high school QB because he's the high school QB. The second he would ask her out (voice gets very high) ‘Oh my god! Why am I wearing black nail polish! I gotta shower this month! Oh my god!' That's blog guy.

And...

The bottom line with hating the man - it gives you street cred, but you end up hanging out with people who can't pay the bills. Let me tell you something, bloggers, 400 thread-count sheets are better than a sleeping bag. Trust me on that. You want to be part of the establishment. Anti-establishment is overrated.

And...

They all want to tell you they have a unique angle and approach. Do you know 99% of all bloggers are white, 18-34, from the northeast, liberal … they're all the same guy! They're all the same voice! Middle class or above, prep school, overwhelmingly white. You're the same guy! If i put you in a room i couldn't tell you apart. They just link back and forth to each other. To me it's funny. They're the goth chick. Trust me, when the QB asks you out, it will make your year.

You Get The Idea. Tiresome Nonsense. However If You, Fine Commentariat, Would Like To Respond To This Gentleman's Opinion, Please Give Him A Call: (Alright, please stop calling Mr. Cowherd...)

Speaking Of Which, Here's A Man Who Owns 400 Thread-Count Sheets

I found this really weird. In the April 2009 "Everyday with Rachael Ray" mag, "Turn to "What a Trip" for a nostalgic read about growing up on baseball."

By Will Leitch.

Ah, Go Fuck Yourself With A Remora

This was truly a fascinating account. I respectfully ask, however, if it was absolutely necessary and in the spirit of professional journalism, if not common decency to use the F word. Unfortunately, this prevented me from sharing this otherwise interesting story with my children. There is nothing intelligent in profanity, and this was the worst kind.

Yeah, Sorry. I'm Retarded

Hello,

I have been an avid viewer of the site, but I will no longer visiting since Deadspin continues to use the word 'retarded' in headlines and stories.

This word stigmatizes millions of people around the world, and use of the word shows very poorly on the character of the person.

Thanks,

Okay. I Do Like Giant Bloody Hogs

Hey AJD,

So last night I tried to friend Reds top pitching prospect Homer Bailey on facebook and he snubbed me.

He would. But I didn't come away empy handed. Here's (attached) a picture of him with a demolished hog! Really hope it can make your friday random shit thing, I love that part of the blog.
