Schadenfreude Friday: Birthdays, Turds and Porn

As always, there's schadenfreude aplenty. Take a look...

Heh..."Handy Manny"

Children here got more than they bargained for when they tuned in to "Handy Manny" on the Disney Channel this week — hard-core pornography. Cable giant Comcast is investigating how the porn was broadcast during the popular cartoon, which is about a bilingual handyman, Manny Garcia, and his talking tools. Customer Paul Dunleavy was stunned Tuesday morning to find his 5-year-old son watching the broadcast. "It was two people doing their thing; it was full-on and it was disgusting," the father of three told The New York Daily News.

Heh. They said handy...and talking tools. I knew there was a reason they called Disney the Magic Kingdom.

Shits And Giggles (But Especially Shits)
I was surfing a bit yesterday and randomly came across an amazing new device called the The Turd Twister. It claims to be a joke but it also claims to be "a complete kit for shaping your turd into amazing designs". Patented design features include a smooth, tapered inner-wing design for easy, comfortable insertion, an E-Z Grip Sphincter Lok, and designer template disks for every occasion and every craft project. Template designs include Stellar Turd, Love Turd, Lucky Turd, Skull Turd, Christmas Turd and, in remembrance of the ancient Egyptians and their feces, the Pyramid Turd.

Look, I realize this might not fit the typical schadenfreude mold but people just plain scare the shit out of me sometimes. No pun intended.

A BigDubya Looks At Forty...Argh
In case you didn't know, Mr. BigDubya will be turning the big four-oh over the weekend. Now there's schadenfreude. Who wants to chip in for a walker?

Happy birthday, my friend.

Now I know what to get you on your next birthday. Maybe by then they will come out with even more Turd Twister designs!

I'm going to need a walker soon too ;-)

Turd Twister?! Seriously sick.

The scary thing is that I've known people who would not only not realize that the turd twister wasn't a joke, they'd probably attempt to order one.

I wonder if the Comcast people were just checking to see if parents were paying attention to what their kids were watching, or just using the tv as a babysitter. :p

Oops, porn instead of children's programming. How do explain that mix up to your boss?

I *was* going to blog about Handy Manny yesterday. But I figured this is something YOU wouldn't miss so I'll let you do your Friday thang. :)

Besides, I would've been blogging during office hours which you know I can't these days. Heh.

I love the Turd Twister!

You know the Turd Twister could be something to use with my 4 dogs! Just saying...

thank goodness my son is over the 'Handy Manny' thing. I hadn't heard about the porn episode either...nice. Oh and hey, Mr. Catcus...I do believe it is FINALLY Friday. Have a great weekend.

Does the turd twister come in a cactus shape? That'd be cool.

Really, they have so few mediums avaliable to them that they must sculpt with poo? ewwww.

I blame Oprah for the Turd Twister. She's the one that announced "S" shaped turds were the healthiest. So of course some idiot took it to the next level. I mean, if "S" is good, wouldn't skull shaped be even better?

I've seen the Handy Manny show once and it was horrible. I'd take porn over that any day of the week.

So if you get the Turd Twister, you totally need the Octodogs' Frankfurter Converter!! :)

I laughed so hard at the Turd Twister that Bryan came in to check on me. Then he laughed so hard he scared the cat.

Magic Kingdom indeed. Though the name should have tipped parents off that something funny was bound to happen. What's next? Spankin' Franklin?

My laugh for the day! Thank you.
