Philly To Hold Support The Police Rally


A northeast Philadelphia neighborhood is holding a Support the Police Rally tonight. Call me a cynic, but this will not end well.

The organizers of the “1st Annual Mayfair Rally To Support Our Police” in the Philadelphia area decided that it was time to show Philly police officers that they are appreciated. According to the invitation, posted at Facebook, the event is not designed to be a political statement, but will serve simply to “show our support to our police officers in the 15th district.”

One of the organizers, Jay Giel, told Broadside News that they expected 50-100 people, but were “extremely surprised” after their invitation was accepted by over a thousand people. “The outpouring has been amazing,” he said. The goal, Giel explained, is to “shed a positive light” on the police department. The organizers are now “expecting between 1500-2000 people.”

The rally will be held at the intersection of Cottman and Frankford Avenues in the Mayfair section of Philadelphia on Friday, December 18 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

Don't get me wrong; I think this is a great idea, but there will be plenty of anti-cop people there to ruin the evening.

Band Of Brothers

My two oldest sons play in the school band. Both have played since they were in fourth grade. Every year, the band holds a Christmas concert and a Spring concert. This year is special, however. It is the first time Kyle and Erik have played together in the advanced band, and it is Kyle's last Christmas concert. They did not disappoint.

For the record, you cannot see either of the boys. Kyle plays trombone, and Erik is on drums. They are both in the back row on the right.

So, without further ado, The Carol of the Bells:



Yeah, this one got me emotional.

The Abs Have It


Apparently Britney Spears has pulled herself together and gotten right with her body. Or is that tight with her body?

Many fans questioned the legitimacy of Britney Spears' toned abs on the January/February cover of Women's Health, which hits newsstands next Tuesday. But the magazine dispelled the Photoshop rumors by sharing a behind-the-scenes video of the 33-year-old's cover shoot shot by Jeff Lipsky.

The pop diva's facial features were sharpened with contouring make-up, but her enviable figure is thanks to frequent swimming, yoga, and interval training classes at Drenched Fitness.

I'll bet you could bounce a quarter off those. Anyone have a quarter? Anyone? Bueller?

I Find Your Lack Of Flake Disturbing


Normally, I an not a big craft guy. Today? I'm a big craft guy.

Last night for family night by boys wanted to know how to make snowflakes that were better than the average snowflakes we normally make. We went on search of something that fit their description and found a tutorial on how to make Star Wars snowflakes! My boys were ecstatic and what was supposed to be about 10-20 minutes of making paper snowflakes turned into an hour or more of Star Wars snowflakes. (H/T - Easily Lost)

You can find the tutorials by clicking here. It's the perfect project to keep your boys - and girls - occupied during Christmas break.

Kari Me Away

Today is redhead, robo-babe, and Mythbusters cast member Kari Byron's 40th birthday! Personally, I don't think her body looks a day over 21, but I would need to confirm that with some hands-on research.

Kari, for me, has always been the best part about the Discovery Channel program - and Kari's best parts have always been on display.

If you know a guy who thinks Kari is hawt - and really, which guy doesn't - and was born on this date, remind him he shares a birthday with her. He will thank you for it, before rushing to Google images.

Similarly, today is Joseph Stalin's special day, so if someone you despise shares the date, remind them of that.

Oh My Goddess!


The Japanese "Boob Goddess" has created a tool to help women firm and enlarge their breasts.

Takiko Shindo's latest advancement in the bustling field of bust enhancement is something called the "Oppai Taisou Hand," that is basically a pink rake for stroking and brushing one's breasts.

The so-called "science," according to Shindo, is that ligaments holding up breasts need to move. Otherwise fats in the same area settle down around the chest muscles, and causes breasts to sag.

Why would women need a pink rake to stroke and brush their breasts when they have us? We're guys; we know a thing or two about stroking breasts!

True Police Stories

Finally, a story which doesn't directly involve me or my division.

Two officers were in court yesterday for a narcotics arrest. During the trial, the defendant's brother comes in, sits down, and tells the judge, "Those weren't my brother's drugs; they were MY drugs."

Inexplicably, the judge dismisses the case against the defendant, and lets the brother leave the courtroom without incident..

As the brothers are waiting for the elevator, they blow kisses to the arresting officers.

God, I love this town!

Happy Birthday, Mollie!


Today is a very special day. Today is my friend and co-blogger Mollie's birthday. Apparently she turned "none of your business" today. I'm kidding; she is younger than I am, so let your imagination run wild.

Mollie came along at the greatest possible time. Dr. Evil was building a relationship with the Evil Surgeon, and could not help out here like he used to do. Mollie was nice enough to step in and more than make up for the lost snark. In fact, our snark cups runneth over now.

Despite what she may think, Mollie is a great writer and an even better friend. The other SYLG and TGWS would not have survived as long as they did without her, and I owe her a debt we can never repay. I am disappointed we had to close TGWS' doors before I could sing Mollie's praises on her special day, but this was the best I could do.

Thank you, Mollie, for being a co-blogger when I needed one, and a true friend when I wanted one.

Company Makes Lamps For Women’s Headlights


Sasswear has created lighted LED pasties. This may be the stupidest idea of all time, because no man worth his salt needs to be reminded where women’s breasts are located.

Though inspired by music festivals and raves, Sasswear’s Light Up Pasties shouldn’t be pigeon holed to these non-everyday events. The entire line of Light Up Pasties uses hypo-allergenic, reusable adhesive so no extra tape or glue is necessary to apply them, and removal is probably around 25 times easier than the One-Handed Bra Unclasp.

Light Up Pasties come in half a dozen different shapes and as many colors. The included batteries last over 20 hours and are replaceable when tapped. Sasswear also notes that their LEDs light up the pasties’ entire surface area, and their rainbow flash of colors can be seen several blocks away.

These are now mandatory for the co-bloggers. I’m wearing mine now, and they feel kinda sexy. That don’t make me queer, right?

Stand Up For Women

There is a product on the market called P-Mate, that allows women to pee standing up. Now, I have never had a desire to do that. I kinda enjoy sitting. Although, I do despise public restrooms and I have never peed in the woods for fear of going all over myself. This fear did force me to leave some high school parties early. By party, I meant a keg in the woods somewhere. I will only go to campgrounds with clean facilities. I never roughed it in the wild. I am an inside, clean bathroom kind of woman.
If a man finds himself without access to a restroom, he can simply turn his back for privacy. Now, the same can be said for women. Easy to use with everything from pants and shorts to skirts, P-Mate is a disposable, recyclable, cardboard device that allows women to discreetly relieve their bladders while standing—no dropping your drawers required.
You know this may just be the product for someone like me. Someone with pee fright.
