CJ Wilson has hilarious facial hair

so I was setting my fantasy baseball team lineup and clicked on the CJ Wilson's profile to see his stats - he's a pitcher for the Rangers.

And look at this dude, he looks hilarious. Goofy facial hair and a weird smirk, like he's saying "yeah, my facial hair is sweet. Look at it." He also kind of looks like Paul Rudd. Well done, sir.


More Wikipedia funniness

so this is pretty funny - more Wikipedia hilarity. The page for my state senator, Tim Burchett, was edited to add this:
It is believed that Sen. Burchett controls a small band of pirates on The Tennessee River for the purpose of promoting his upcoming mayoral campaign in Knox County. It is believed that Burchett's wife married him for his impeccable sense of style, however it is actually because the couple are avid cryptozoologists. Once retired, the couple plans to divide their time between cryptozoology and ufology, another one of their passions.
It got taken out, however.

Previously, Burchett was best known for sponsoring a bill that made eating road kill legal. No joke.

Texts from Last Night

so everybody's talking about this blog, Texts from Last Night, where people send in last night's drunk texts and they get posted, and hilarity ensues. A lot of people like the site, but I'm gonna vote no.

Some are legitimately funny, some drunk mistake or fumbling pickup line:

(508): hdsncx Gizmo asnqw toilet blanasdi
(214): ok, stay where you are, be there soon


(815): Why did you send me a picture of a dick?
(630): It was an accident sry. Not mine tho.

But a lot are just people bragging about how crazy their night was or thinking they're funny, and thus, are not funny. For example:

(505): You should really figure out how to get me a picture that will pop up on my phone when you call
(720): Just upload a picture of Bea Arthur. That's what my soul looks like these days


(847): I think it's safe to say that I made out with the entire msu campus this weekend

It's not checkouthowfunnyiam.com or lookhowcrazymynightwas.com, it's textsfromlastnight. It has the potential to be funny, but so far, there's a lot of chaff.



so, wow. Just wow.

She's totally high... on life.
