Anal-ism

with 10 comments

Something’s been bugging me for a while now. Not really sure why I remembered it all of a sudden. It’s late, I’m watching an MTV show about 16 year old White Trash girls that got Britney-ied* and I guess you could say I’m still under the influences of Queen, that’s been playing in the background for the past hour.

At any case, I have another English inquiry I wanted to talk about. You know I came to America a tad less than three years ago thinking / knowing that the word ‘Anal’ has to do with one’s anus, and is more often than not used when describing an activity closely related to but-banging. Faster than the time it takes a republican to answer ‘Jesus’ when asked who’s got his back, I learned that ‘Anal’ isn’t a language taboo, but actually socially accepted – and can, at certain occasions, be seen as a compliment.

Time had passed and I learned more and more about the American use of the English language. I avidly read Krakuer’s awesome books, surreptitiously studied H. Fleming’s eye-opening poetry and diligently watched a few Hannah Montana episodes, yet the story behind Anal’s transition from a sodomy-descriptive adjective to an allegory illustrating a detailed-oriented / control-freak person has yet to exposed itself in front of my daunted eyes.

The first explanation I came up with was that apparently all these Librarians / OCD Soccer Moms must really like it up the ass. But that seemed like a bigger urban legend than “Woody Allen used to make great movies” so I decided to forego it. Then I thought that maybe it’s because the anus is a very tight and squeezed place, and that so-called ‘anal’ people really enjoy small and tight places cause they can fit things inside of it (by category) and label it perfectly. But that, too, sounded like a far-fetched idea. Lastly, I went as far as exploring the possibility that the correlation between the two uses stems from the fact that a vagina lubes itself free-willingly (well, somewhat) while the ass’s lubrication levels can and must be controlled – and anal people like control. But that was just too out there and I thought no one is that twisted.

So now I turn to you. Can someone please put me out of my misery and explain, once and for all what’s the deal?

Sammy Sosa Did Steroids

with 5 comments

So it turns out Sammy Sosa used steroids, too.
OMFG!! I didn’t see it coming!! Of all people…in all sports….Why, Sammy, why?!?!??!

K, so let’s be straightforward for a second. This is why you Americans are deemed dumb and naïve in the eyes of the rest of the world. Roids were not tested, nor banned until the mid 2000’s, yet all these idiotic baseball fans (including some idiotic congress members) act as if their world just disintegrated like it was Brittney Spears’ panties. “How dare he?!” they ask in angst, trying to appear shocked and baffled by this unexpected controversy.

Baseball players cheat. All of them. Get over it already. This sport is a joke and your obsession with numbers and records and statistic is absurd, too – especially since baseball is a big rigged, fake joke. I’m tired of it all. Tired of hearing about it on espn. Tired of reading about it. Tired.

Turning against your former baseball heroes and blaming them for doing something completely legal at the time won’t numb the pain of not becoming a professional athlete yourself. Grow up already.

Also please cease from writing those annoying Facebook / Twitter status updates. None of you have any friends.

Do We Really Have To Eat Matzah?

leave a comment »

Concurrently with the emerging spring comes Passover, arguably the greatest holiday in Jewish history. I love Passover mostly for the enormous amounts of food we the chosen people are required to consume (an average Seder meal contains over 4,000 calories). But Passover also has great singing, awesome storytelling and a feeling of togetherness that resembles no other. Passover also always makes me ponder about the bestselling book of all times (sources tell me that “Sarah Palin. A new Kind of Leader” is rising as 2nd on that list) – The Bible. For those of you who aren’t even loosely familiar with the Passover story: it details the slavery period of the Jewish people in Pharaoh’s Egypt and how god, via Moses, took the Jews out of Egypt, leaving tons of chaos and mayhem. It also talks about the journey from Egypt to Israel, and the cultural and religious traditions that were developed within the Jewish people during those times. If that’s not enough, here’s Wiki.

The whole ‘running away from Egypt-moseying in the desert-making up new rules for Jews to abide by‘ story continuously sounded suspicious to my ears. I’ve decided to investigate what really happened back at the day, and most importantly, why the F am I not allowed to eat bread or cake during the 7 days of Passover. Now before I begin, I’d like to confess that I came into this research with a prejudiced opinion. I didn’t really trust the whole Passover story and my initial thought was that Moses intentionally kept the Jews in the wasteland cause he was hooked up with the best hallucinating drugs money can buy. To back up my disbelief in the Passover myth, anyone who had set foot in the Egyptian desert will testify that a) the place is super small and that wasting 40 (40!!) years trying to get from there to Israel is like spending the same amount of time getting from Socal to Norcal. b) Sinay has the best marijuana imaginable and there’s no sign of Polizei anywhere around – so whatever happened there, the Jews didn’t just wander around the desert pointlessly. But anyways, lastly, I’d like to state that the following translations are accurate, however not official.

“And they will bake the dough that they took out of Egypt; a Matzah cake and not leavened food, because they were exiled from Egypt and weren’t able to dawdle. And they didn’t even prepare for the road ahead”. ‘Book of Shemot’, Chapter 12, line 39.

Now that has to be one of the biggest pieces of religious BS crap I’ve ever heard. This quote basically says that there was no time for the dough to rise as the Jews were leaving Egypt, so they took the Matzah. But according to the story, the Jews were rushed out of Egypt under massive pressure to pack only their bare essentials. i.e. themselves and their kids – no underwear, no shoes, not even enough time to update their Twitter with “Muslims are coming, must run, see ya on the other side. FML”. Now imagine that kind of stress, and tell me who in the right mind will have the balls to say “Everybody stop. We need to bake cakes”. Honestly, not even Paula Dean would come up with an idea as dumb as that. The whole thing smells like a total scam to me and this story never happened. But you be the judge.

“He who eats an un-kosher beast will wash his cloths but will remain impure till evening”. ‘Book of Vayikra’, Chapter 11, line 40.

I know that this line has to do with which animals fit with the Jewish Kosher standard, but if I may reflect the interpretation of the above to Passover and Matzah (and I may), what this line essentially says is that if I’ve committed a sin by accidentally eating a young pork wrapped in a tortilla during Passover, all I have to do in order to redeem myself is to walk to the nearest Asian laundromat, hand over 8 quarters, wash my cloths and I’m as innocent and clean as Britney Spears before she reached the age of 14. I mean that’s it, as far as I’m concerned. The Jewish establishment just shot itself in the foot cause this quote above couldn’t be any clearer. Game over. We have a lucid and unmistakable confession from the G O D, telling us that eating Kosher is forgivable via laundry!!! The prosecution rest. You can release the witnesses, fire the typist, change the judge, disassemble the juries and cancel the benefits for the court’s security team. No more Matzah for me. Ever.
