Soy products are turning our kids into homosexuals
I don't usually like to do this, but I feel kind of obligated to point out that the following is apparently not a humor article. Although it seems to have been written by Stephen Colbert or Andy Borowitz, it is in fact dead serious.

"Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality. That's why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today's rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products. (Most babies are bottle-fed during some part of their infancy, and one-fourth of them are getting soy milk!) Homosexuals often argue that their homosexuality is inborn because "I can't remember a time when I wasn't homosexual." No, homosexuality is always deviant. But now many of them can truthfully say that they can't remember a time when excess estrogen wasn't influencing them."

The L.A. Film Critics pick "Letters from Iwo Jima" as the best movie of 2006
This group almost always manages one flaky pick. Last year they were the only group to pick Vera Farmiga as the best actress. Hell, they were the only people who even saw that movie! This year they managed another doozie of a selection. Most groups have been picking Helen Mirren and Forest Whitaker as the best actor and actress. The L.A. group followed suit - but with their own weird twist. Whitaker tied with Sacha Baron Cohen - the guy who plays "Borat." If only the academy had a sense of humor! I would love to see Borat get an Oscar nomination, but I don't think I should hold my breath until it happens.

Pauly Shore gets punched out by a heckler
"Pauly Shore got into a heated exchange with some hecklers during a standup gig over the weekend in Odessa, Texas. During the incident one of the men walks on stage and Pauly Shore tries to diffuse the situation by apologizing and saying, "Please, stop, stop." Then the crowd of intellectuals start shouting "Hit him!" and Mr. Cowboy figures this is time to shine. The guy is quickly escorted away by police and Pauly Shore storms off saying, "Fuck all you fuckin' white trash.""

What's the origin of the term "go-go dancer"?
"According to John Ciardi's Good Words to You, Compton MacKenzie published a novel in 1947 entitled Whisky Galore, about a freighter with 10,000 cases of whisky that is wrecked near a booze-starved island during World War II. The book was made into a movie of the same name in England (it was called Tight Little Island in its U.S. release) that when dubbed for the French became Whiskey a gogo, whiskey galore. The movie inspired someone to open a bar in Paris (or was it Cannes? I can never remember these things) called "Whiskey a gogo," which became one of the first discotheques. Later the idea and the name were both imported to New York. One day the manager of the New York Whiskey a Go-Go took it upon himself to hire scantily clad girls to demonstrate new dances, and the go-go dancer was born."
