Things That Leave Me Scratchin’ My Head {Coffee Talk}

Coffee Talk {Living Outside the Stacks}1. Republican politicians, can I tell ya something? You really need to work on your “Hate the sin, love the sinner” message ’cause right now you’re failing miserably at explaining anything that has to do with women and rape.

2. And while I’m on the political, women can handle heated debates, so stop saying that Obama’s and Romney’s sparkless debate was because they’re “courting women voters and women can’t handle conflict.” Ummm, have you ever had contact with a woman? In this century?

3. I hate that saggy pants thing that guys do. It’s so not cool. Especially when the guy is over the age of 20. By that time the guy should have long been able to afford to buy a belt. I actually saw a guy fall while crossing the street because his pants were so saggy. The reason I’m bringing this up is because a lot of cities are trying to pass ordinances to ban saggy pants. While I’m all for ending this horribly tacky trend, I think cops have bigger issues to worry about. Then again, aren’t there already decency laws on the books?

4. Have you seen Brad Pitt’s Chanel No. 5 commercial? What in the world is he talking about? At first I thought it was some sort of PSA. This guy takes himself way too seriously.

4. A New York City police officer was arrested for allegedly plotting to kidnap, rape, kill and eat women. What the what? Here’s the thing, ladies, if you’re driving alone at night and you see flashing lights in your rear mirror, throw on your hazard lights, slow down and do not pull your car over until you’re in a well lit area. You can also dial 911, give them your location and ask for backup. If the cop is legitimate, he will understand. Do not pull your car over on a remote road. Be safe, people are crazy.

What had you scratchin’ your head this week?

    You have two #4′s. I love it when my friends make the same flakey mistakes as I do!

    As for Brad, he made millions of dollars, I heard seven of them, for this one ad. The commercial itself seems like satire.

      Just proves that I am human.

    UHG! Where to begin… Brad, just stand there and hold the bottle. Shhhh…. don’t say a word!
    Saggy pants, may you all trip and fall on your face!
    Politicians, instead of being flip when it comes to the “women’s vote” I subscribe to the notion that maybe you could learn a thing or two… The country is in the state that it is in because of YOU!
    Men, do you really lack that much self control?! Does it not hurt your ego in the slightest to think you had to TAKE rather than allow a woman to free GIVE of herself? I mean really?
    *Drops mic. Throws head back. Steps down from box. Exits stage left*

      Hahahaha Look pretty, Brad. Look pretty.

      Yeah, I vote with my “smart parts” not my “lady parts”. Eek.

    I had not seen the brad commercial until after I saw the SNL skit. I had a *blank stare* moment.

    Why won’t saggy pants die? I saw a toddler sagging at the playground. His mom is keeping the trend alive. If only the fashion police was real….

    I’ve watched the debates but haven’t really kept up with the advertising. I know who I’m voting for and have never been undecided about it.

      LOL Isn’t that the most ridiculous commercial ever?

      Girl, if I could single handedly supply every young man with a belt and every girl with a tank to cover the bra straps…

      When the election is over, I’ll be one happy lady.
