Attention, shoppers: What the f*ck is wrong with YOU?

Posted by stylebitch on December 1, 2008

A man trampled to death in a WalMart store on Black Friday – at first I simply couldn’t believe it. Has the world gone completely insane? Is a bargain already worth more than a human life? Read the depressing story in its entirety here:

NEW YORK — Police are reviewing surveillance videos of a
post-Thanksgiving shopper stampede that trampled a suburban Wal-Mart
worker to death, but they acknowledge it may be difficult to bring
criminal charges.

Nassau County police and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said no new
information was available Saturday on the employee’s brutal death,
which rattled shoppers even as they flocked to the Valley Stream store
a day later.

“It felt a little freakish,” customer
Ellie Berhun, 48, told the Daily News. “Some man lost his life because
a VCR was on sale? Please. It’s just too sad for words.”

Police said the temporary worker, Jdimytai Damour, was mowed down as
about 2,000 bargain-hunters surged into the store at Friday’s 5 a.m.
opening, leaving a metal portion of the door frame crumpled like an
accordion.

Other workers were knocked to the ground as they tried to rescue
Damour, and customers simply stepped over him and kept shopping even as
the store announced it was closing because of the death, police and
witnesses said.

At least four other people, including a woman eight months pregnant,
were taken to hospitals for observation or treatment for minor
injuries. The store, about 20 miles east of Manhattan, closed for
several hours but reopened Friday afternoon.

The day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday because it has
traditionally marked the point when a throng of shoppers pushes stores
into profitability for the year.

Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart said it added staffers and outside
security workers and put up barricades to try to prepare for the crush.
But police spokesman Detective Lt. Michael Fleming said Friday that
security was inadequate for a scene he called “utter chaos.”

Criminal charges are possible, but identifying anyone in the store’s videos may prove difficult, Fleming said.

Damour, 34, came from a temporary agency and was doing maintenance work at the store, Wal-Mart said.

A woman reported being trampled by overeager customers at a Wal-Mart
opening Friday in Farmingdale, about 15 miles east of Valley Stream,
Suffolk County police said. She suffered minor injuries but finished
shopping before filling the report, police said.

Items on sale at the Valley Stream Wal-Mart included a Samsung
50-inch Plasma HDTV for $798, a Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum for $28,
a Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera for $69 and DVDs such as “The
Incredible Hulk” for $9. (Source)

Mein Beitrag zum 9. November

Posted by stylebitch on November 9, 2008

Meine liebe Ex-Praktikantin machte mich auf diesen genialen Kabarettisten aufmerksam – man kann ja nicht alle Spaßvögel kennen, gell – und ich finde, mehr braucht man zur Neuen DDR, wie ich Ostdeutschland gern liebevoll nenne, auch nicht zu sagen. Kindchen, fahr ab!

DIGG THIS: HUGE PALIN-OSCOPY ROUND-UP!!!

Posted by stylebitch on October 27, 2008

Just read this very promising headline on The Huff Post‘s site

MCCAIN “LOSING IN A WAY THAT THREATENS TO TAKE ENTIRE REPUBLICAN PARTY DOWN WITH HIM”

and thought I’d compile a few clips and clippings about what Sarah “Mooselini” Palin has been up to lately:

1. She, eh, went a little shopping. For 150 000 Dollars. I mean, I’m all FOR retail therapy, but I’m not running as a hockey mum. Anyhow, the more staggering fact is that her make-up artiste is the highest paid staffer on the whole McCain campaign. THAT’S absolutely shocking!

2. She got called a “crazy bitch” by Betty “Rose” White of “Golden Girls fame. Watch the whole clip:

3. The Gouvernante received a harsh letter by Robert F. Kennedy

4. Not much praise from John Cusack either …

5. No comment [source]

6. Women are increasingly sceptic about Miss Wasilla. The truth is, some think “she’s evil”!

7. This is what La Cho had to say on the topic

Meanwhile, her boss running mate kept busy:

The Final Debate:

The Crazy Lady at the Rally

And do you remember the “car slip“?

The video AOL did not want you to see: Joan Rivers, the Emmys … and Hitler?

Now, I’m a huge fan of Joan Rivers, she’s a true survivor and usually wickedly funny. Last year AOL, the company formerly known as “hip new economy superpower”, picked up Joan & Melissa River’s fashion commentary on the Emmy awards’ red carpet show, and was said to do the same in 2008. After seeing the video though, taped in an old fashionedly decorated apartment, they refused to put it up on their site not explaining why they didn’t.

Well, it could be because of a weird red thread Joan RIvers spun comparing the (hair) styles of a couple of big names in Hollywood – Tom Hanks, Julia Louis-Dreyfus … – with the Third Reich. Is it the botox, Joan, does it get to you, or was it just a streak of random rambling-itis, ‘coz these analogies had but one major flaw: they were NOT funny. I mean, comedians like my beloved Kathy Griffin cross even more lines during their acts, and rightfully so giving the insanely politically correct and fully censored media world we live in.
But: Kathy’s funny. You were extremely funny and have a showstopper of a play out which I hope to see some time. Enough with the Hitlerisms, though, PLEASE!
