Friday Clutter

Hi everyone,

How are you?  Happy Friday!  It is Friday, right?  I feel like I've already reached my full potential for the week, but apparently we still have one more day to go.  At least we have a long weekend coming up, right?  Is it wrong if I say I've repeatedly forgotten this week that this was the case?  Oy, I need a nap.  Actually, what I really need is a nice medium iced DD, because it's time to clear out some Clutter.

Congratulations to the Boy Scouts of America for changing their policy to now allow openly gay boys into the organization.  However, we'll save our full applause until gay adults are also allowed to be Scout leaders.   I mean, really, the best I can come up with is, "Good for you for cutting your discriminatory policies in half."  Also, what happens to the gay kid who grows up in the Scouts, buys into all of their beliefs, thinks they're this great organization and all of that once he becomes an adult?  Scout leaders look at him and say, "Yeah, it was fine when we thought you were just a confused boy, but now that you're an adult, you're a monster?"

Just a reminder that voter fraud isn't an actual problem in this country, and any attempt to supposedly "fix" the problem that doesn't exist is really just good old-fashion voter suppression, and it's still difficult to think of something more inherently un-American.

It's great to hear that America's teen birth rate continues to drop.  It's amazing what access to birth control can do, huh?

Let me just be clear about something, if anyone ever illegally removes the Clutter Tree, they'll have more than fines from the city to worry about.

One of the most entertaining parts of the Boston Red Sox season so far is when relief pitcher Koji Uehara enthusiastically high-fives every guy in the dugout after a successful inning.  It doesn't matter if it's the 3rd game of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays, Uehara treats it like it was the 8th inning of the deciding game of the World Series.  He's been doing it all season, which is why outfielder Shane Victorino really has no excuse for being caught off-guard.  I could watch this clip all day long.


Oh, the next Doctor Who Revisited special airs on Sunday!  This should be fun.  I watched all of the 5th Doctor's run when I was a kid, and then I forget what happened when Colin Baker took over for Peter Davison.  Either PBS must have stopped running the show, or they went back to the 4th Doctor, Tom Baker.  In any case, looking forward to getting my time travel fix in two days.

We had a clip some time back of Chelsea Handler and Conan O'Brien sharing a shower.  Some of you may still be traumatized by that.  This time, it's Chelsea and Zach Galifinakis discussing when they met, and the time they shared a bed.  This may or may not be as traumatizing as the O'Brien clip.  You be the judge.


Okay kids, that's going to do it for now.  In honor of Memorial Day's arrival, let's close things out with this track from the Dixie Chicks for today's, "Song of the Day."


Thanks for coming by, everyone.  It was great to see you, as always.  Here's to a quiet Friday and the start of a nice long weekend.  Don't worry, we'll still be sorting through the headlines, though, so make sure you come back again for more fun soon (and maybe bring some beer?)  For now, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
