Real Life Made Up Characters

Remember when you were a kid and you thought your favorite cartoon characters were real? It didn't seem that crazy an idea that you could maybe run into Bugs Bunny on the street one day. Bedrock may not be the town next to yours but maybe it's one town over. Sure! The world was a more magical place then and ice cream didn't give you the shits. But then one day one of your parents or maybe both (in my case both over and over again) sit you down and explain to you the difference between real and imaginary. What the fuck?
Well screw that! You want to know what your favorite cartoon characters look like in real life? Now you can! And guess what? Maybe you were better off not seeing what they would look like in real life. Honestly, Charlie Brown scares the living daylights out of me in this picture. He looks like a soulless child, most likely the victim of both neglect and abuse of various kinds. "Good grief?" More like, "Fucking kill me."
Haven't had enough?

A Jew By Any Other Name

If you're like me, you probably often think aloud to yourself, "I wonder what my name would be if I was Jewish."

WELL WONDER NO MORE!

That's right! You no longer have to just imagine what your jewish name would be; through the wonders of modern technology combined with the ancient secrets of Jewish Mysticism we can now actually calculate EXACTLY what your jewish name would be based on what your goyim name is.

Check it out here: THE JEWISH NAME GENERATOR

Once you've discovered your jewish name; please come back and post your new found hebrew identity.

VOTE THEM OUT OF EXISTENCE!!!

Is it Bigfoot? He seems pretty real to me. Don't think so? I'd like to see you tell HIM that!
Is it this guy? William Shakespeare? He looks pretty made up to me!
Grover Cleveland? This is the only picture I could find for this non existent character!
Or is it this black guy? Air Rogers?
It's your last chance guys!!!! Decide who actually existed and who actually didn't existed
YOU DECIDE!! Go to the bottom of the page and cast your vote.

THE 2009 FIRST ANNUAL FAR FROM EARTH HAMBURGER GIRL SWEEPSTAKES


Here's an idea Marcketeers! Stay up real late and write the scariest place you could imagine finding Hamburger Girl and then post your idea here. If it's any good we'll say so.
ex. After watching six episodes of How I Met Your Mother in a row I get up off the couch to use the bathroom. While in the bathroom I hear something scuttle across the floor in the other room. From the bathroom there is a trail of fast food wrappers leading back into the living room. To my horror, there she is, sitting in the shadows under a side table next to my sofa shaking her cup of ice like the pit viper's death rattle.



Leave it to DVR



It's summer time, the days are getting longer, the nights are getting hotter and jesus christ there is NOTHING on television! I think I spend more time searching for things to DVR then I do watching the programs I record. Is anyone watching anything worth watching?

Anyone?

This is what's on my DVR:
It's one of those shows where when you have them in front of you it's hard to pick out one to watch, but if you just had one in front of you, you'd watch it in a second the whole way through. And now there's a place that does that for you. So please, do yourself a favor, check out WTSO.net and just hit random!
  • 7 The State episodes (Think you're a fan of Wet Hot American summer? Well if you don't know about this show you're a complete poser bro.)
  • 6 The Tonight Show episodes
  • 1 The Young and The Restless episodes (it's Tamara's)
  • 6 Two and a Half Men episodes (none of which I plan on watching)
  • 1 Wrong Door episode (has something all skit shows lack, an amazing grasp on special effects)
Well that's what I'm watching these days. What's on your DVR list Marcketeers?

Hamburger Girl


I've decided that I'm uncomfortable with the 30% of my life I spend in a coma. That's right, I'm talking about sleep.

But I've found the solution. It's this girl.

I just imagine waking up in a cold sweat and seeing her at the foot of my bed eating that hamburger.
Or perhaps she'd be squatting in a dark corner of my room, perched on a greasy mound of half eaten hamburgers and discarded fountain sodas; anxiously waiting to be discovered.

Maybe I wake up in the middle of the night to get a glass of ice water from the kitchen. I find a glass on one side of the kitchen and move to the fridge for the water; I turn around again to retrieve my glass and there she is, all of a sudden chewing and sucking off her cheap fuchsia nail polish as she spider walks across my counter.

Scraping the Surface of American Hygiene*


I use baby wipes. I'll tell you why.

If you accidentally touched some errant feces with your hand, would you just wipe it up with a dry paper towel? Or would you take some time to find a sink, get some soap, and really try your best to sanitize and clean the aforementioned hand.

That's what I thought.
A dry wipe does not a clean butt make.

So clean up your act America! It's not just me who's fed up with people's low standards of toilet paper either. When actor/celebrity Terrence Howard is looking for romance, bathroom hygiene is among his chief concerns.
"Toilet paper - and no baby wipes - in the bathroom. If they're using dry paper, they aren't washing all of themselves. It's just unclean. So if I go in a woman's house and see the toilet paper there, I'll explain this. And if she doesn't make the adjustment to baby wipes, I'll know she's not completely clean."
- Terrence Howard (jezebel.com, Terrence Howard this Women are Unclean and Dressed Like Whores)
Worried people are going to think your choice in TP is a bit too juvenile? Well stop crying you big baby, THE FINAL WIPE has got you covered:

I have always used good old American toilet paper to wipe my ass. Before my daughter was born eight years ago, I had probably never seen a baby wipe or a wet wipe, nor did I even much care that such a thing existed. Why would a grown man want to wipe his ass with a baby wipe, anyway?

I will admit that I have tried baby wipes in the recent past -- not only for cleanliness, but also for relief after pooping out a hot & spicy turd. It sure beats holding a cold wet washcloth on my bunghole.

Still, being that I am PoopReport's representative of the American archetype -- a 40-year-old man who doesn't dote over making sure his asshole is perfectly fresh and spotless after dropping a dookie -- the powers that be decided that I was the best candidate to review a new wet-wipe product called The Final Wipe - POOPREPORT.COM

Well, there you go Marc-keteers! The straight poop on wet wipes from the experts who know. Any questions or comments on today's blog? Be sure to send an e-mail with the subject line, "unclean thoughts".

Feral Children



Hey kids! Ever wonder what it would be like if instead of being raised by parents you were raised by wolves? Or babysat by bears? Well, wonder no more because it's actually happened! Often disregarded as folklore or urban legend, the existence of feral children rarely makes news headlines or the history books, but it happens!
Children who were for one tragic reason or another abandoned by their parents have been taken in by wild animals for centuries. So all you Marc-keteers out there with children of your own, remember: if you need a night out and there's no one around to watch the kids, just call upon your local pack of dogs. If there happens to be a breast feeding bitch* in the group, you don't even have to worry about dinner! The legend of Romulus and Remus is one of the more famous stories surrounding the subject.

"Roman legend has it that Romulus and Remus, twin sons of Rhea Silvia and Mars, were raised by wolves. Rhea Silvia was a priestess, and when it was found that she had been pregnant and had had children, the local King Amulius ordered her to be buried alive and for the children to be killed. The servant who was given the order set them in a basket on the Tiber riverinstead and the children were taken by Tiberinus, the river god, to the shore where a she-wolf found them and raised them until they were discovered as toddlers by a shepherd named Faustulus. He and his wife Acca Larentia, who had always wanted a child but never had one, raised the twins, who would later figure prominently in the events leading up to the founding of Rome (named after Romulus, who eventually killed Remus in a fight over whether the city should be founded on the Palatine Hill or the Aventine Hill)." - Wikipedia, feral children

The moral of this story is if someone leaves the front door open or the toilet seat up, don't accuse them of being raised by wolves; because if they were, they'll likely become successful founders of one of the world's greatest democracies and savagely kill you.

And guess what Marc-keteers? Feral children are still found every year. If you're interested in learning more about feral children like the Syrian Gazelle Boy or John Ssebunya the Ugandan Monkey Boy go to feralchildren.com to check out all the other wild, crazy kids out there. Pretty cool huh?
