->Was it true? Had Lex traded in the red, white, and blue for [=DiBiase=]’s green? No, said Luger. Tatanka insisted Luger was lying, while Lex embarked on a lousy PR campaign...\\\
The purpose of this dud of an angle? Vince had to ham-fistedly prove a point about [[RealLifeWritesThePlot his steroid trial that summer.]] See, just because someone was accused of wrongdoing didn’t mean he wasn’t '''totally 100% innocent'''. If Wrestling/LexLuger could be framed, so could Wrestling/VinceMcMahon! And I guess that meant [[DrFeelgood Dr. Zahorian]] was like Wrestling/TedDiBiase? And that it was the federal prosecutor who was actually distributing the steroids, not Vince? Okay, I guess the parallels ended there. In other words, this angle was the second-most insulting analogy for the [=McMahon=] steroid trial in history. But you’ve got to admire [=McMahon’s=] chutzpah for using Lex Luger [[CanonSue as a symbol of his innocence]] on steroid charges.

What sort of brain-damage does it take to argue this with a straight face? Do they really, really, think someone will say "My god, a lunch counter is JUST LIKE a romantic interest. There's no way to someone could tell them apart. If a business doesn't want to serve any blacks, that's just like not having sex with someone". But apparently, this is all part of the "[[{{Newspeak}} right of association]]" in Libertarianism.

->'What is it about the "lunch counter" that is different from a date? ... is it violence to be overtly racist in selecting a romantic interest? If so, how should we prevent it? If not, why not. Is it because the relationship is not primarily economical, in the narrow sense?'\\\

->And here we go. Get your fist ready and [[ShootTheTv apologize to your monitor in advance]], because Heather Mills' tongue is at it again. Poor, poor, poor Heather is just sick of being nailed to the cross with LIES and she is ready to spend her whole life fighting to get the truth out there. Heather is like a cunty version of [[Series/TheXFiles Fox Mulder]]. Better yet, she’s this generation’s Gandhi. There goes your fist…

Added DiffLines:


->I think that sometimes when people hear that I might have gotten success off of [[Series/KeepingUpWithTheKardashians a reality show]], they take that as a negative. We're filming our tenth season right now and we've had nine seasons of spin-offs, so our show, we have more episodes than ''Series/ILoveLucy.''

Heather told her local paper in Brighton that she can relate to Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Gandhi, because they were all attacked by ''[=H8rs=]'' while trying to truth-tell. The [[Series/JonAndKatePlusEight Kate Gosselin]] of the UK queefed, ''“They were people who went through controversy to put the truth forward and they weren’t afraid to fight and I can relate to that completely.”''\\\
Gandhi believed in non-violence, but I think he would agree that we can briefly put that belief on hold to whoop this trick’s ass!

->''Duck and Cover'' is a civil defense film from 1951 that was shown to elementary school students well into the late 1960s and maybe later. It stars "Bert the Turtle", who knows to duck inside his shell as soon as a monkey threatens him with a firecracker.\\\
According to the film, hitting the dirt and covering yourself with a newspaper in case of a nuclear attack will protect you just as much as a turtle shell protects against a firecracker.\\\
Of all the civil defense films made in the 1940s-1960s, this is probably the best known because it was so widely shown to schoolkids and because it is incredibly stupid.
-->--'''''Wiki/RationalWiki'''''

->''[=BuzzFeed=]'' has been around for a while, but they reached a new low in 2013 with 'The Story Of Egypt's Revolution In ''JurassicPark'' Gifs.' Not only was this 'article' an insulting, condescending simplification of a country's painful struggle for human rights, it made absolutely no fucking sense. The only thing [=BuzzFeed=] and the Egyptian political crisis have in common is that [[TakeThat they both involve crimes against humanity]] -- in Egypt unarmed protestors have been shot, while at ''[=BuzzFeed=]'' someone wrote 'They found a democracy DNA strand frozen in amber' and [[KarmaHoudini was given money instead of a pink slip]]. If you don't see the problem, imagine how people would react if a Middle Eastern website ran 'The Story of 9/11 In ''{{Disney/Aladdin}}'' Clips.'
