Das boob

Unless you’ve been living in a spider hole for the last few days, you’ve been inundated with the fallout from the Great Super Bowl Boobie Incident (GSBBI). A couple of things are very interesting about GSBBI:1. Janet is apparently working nights as Locutus of Borg. That is one wicked-looking implant she’s got going on right there. You go girl.Locutus of Borg

  1. The sight of boobies will apparently scar some people’s children for life.

  2. Those same people have the opportunity to take the time out of their busy lives to complain loudly and indignantly to anybody who will listen about the horrible scarring of their children.

  3. Having performers allude to sex acts in speech and dancing is, for some reason, wholesome family entertainment. A glimpse at a female body part, on the other hand, is Evil.

No, I don’t understand it either.Music: “The Rafters” by Moby [Opens in iTunes]
