Portland Gets It Right With ‘Post No Bills’ Sign

Post no bills sign portland
Some special soul in my native Portland, OR provided this daily haha in the form of a “Post No Bills” sign surrounded by pictures of famous dudes named Bill across from Reed College.

Here we see Nye, Hader, Maher, Idol, Clinton, Gates, Shakespeare, Cosby, Mr. Bill, and Murray, but no Shatner, as one commenter noticed after George Takei shared the photo.

Apparently “post no bills” signs are an outdated reminder for shameless promoters to keep flyers off of boring fences and the like. From Yahoo! Answers:

‘Bills’ simply means flyers and paper advertisements, hope that helped! It’s common to find this sign on derelict buildings and boarded up places.  Continue reading “Portland Gets It Right With ‘Post No Bills’ Sign”

Taylor Swift Coughed up a $500 Tip on a Few Bowls of Chicken Parmesan

Taylor Swift italian restaurantTaylor Swift isn’t like her “peers.” She’s not an insufferable little twat like Justin Bieber, she doesn’t do embarrassing shit like twerk with teddy bears (Miley) or appear to be suffering from yet-to-be-discovered vagina bugs like Vanessa Hudgens. Yeah she’s had a lot of boyfriends, but she’s also a good tipper.

So on top of having an arsenal of top 40 hits about her exes, Swifty throws money at waitresses and waiters like Kid Rock at a strip club.

After dining out in Philly with tour mates Ed Sheeran, Austin Mahone and others at the Italian restaurant Ralph’s, Taylor left a $500 tip on an $800 bill, which is a whopping 62%. AND she gave concert tickets to the head chef’s autistic son. And ate a plate of chicken Parmesan that was “almost as big as her,” according to the owner.  Continue reading “Taylor Swift Coughed up a $500 Tip on a Few Bowls of Chicken Parmesan”

Trailer: True Blood Season 6

The vampire and human war continues June 16 on HBO. Judging from faces and words spoken in the True Blood season 6 trailer, Pam and Sookie are scared, Jessica and Eric look happy and Bill seems neutral.

Meanwhile, Alcide blows away all threats (and distracts us from the show’s silliness) by ripping his shirt off.

Mediocrity to the Rescue!

Apparently, we’ve reached the point where we heap praise on celebrities when they act like decent human beings. I guess we just don’t expect very much of them, nor should we.

Celebrities, by and large, and regardless of industry, are egocentric megalomaniacs. They’re shameless self-promoters. But they have to be.

It’s the very nature of the industry they’ve chosen to reward only the most outlandish, most newsworthy (whether good or bad) people. I guess that’s why it’s so shocking when we hear about celebrities doing genuine good. A story about Johnny Depp tipping $4000 on a $400 check is just as shocking to our sensibilities as Britney Spears stiffing her waitress on a $251 bill.

NO Shark Fin SOUP FOR YOU, California

Shark fin soup, which can cost up to $100 a bowl, will no longer be available in the state of California because governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill banning its main ingredient.

Some residents are outraged, while others applaud the new law. The fins sell for more than $2,000 a pound and are sometimes used in meals to celebrate Chinese birthdays, parties and weddings…
