Who Gets What? A Hypothetical Situation Involving Rappers at Ben Eine’s Art Show

 
Not sure why I am considered one of the preeminent scholars for hypothetical rapper scenarios, but I seem to get paid a decent amount of money to write about what I think rappers would and wouldn’t do within certain hypothetical situations.

So when I was asked to guess which rapper/singer would buy which of these amazing pieces of hand painted typography I found it was a lot harder than I thought. Since the artist didn’t do one that said “YOU DONT GOT THE ANSWERS SWAY” I had to actually use my own brain power to figure out this turnt up typographical conundrum in a timely manner.

Roger Gastman on European Cheese

roger-cheese

Really? The EUROPEANS have time to worry about the American use of their cheese names? Yes, that is a question and it is a hot button issue going on right now! No more Parmesan, no more Feta! We Americans and American cheese makers are hurting the European cheese market and costing them billions by stealing “their” names. I say screw them, they can keep their names, they can even keep Feta cheese forever, I never much cared for it anyway. Do the people at KRAFT really use the same recipe for their delicious shake cheese? I doubt it. Here are a few suggestions for Parmesan that are not really thought through yet, but you can use them as a starting point if America does gets banned from European cheese names.

The Lure of Two-Button Baseball

rbi-baseball-comparison

Old folks who stopped playing video games once the toggles became necessary can now rejoice, a revamped, yet distinctly familiar R.B.I. Baseball returns to video game consoles April 10th. With fast-paced gameplay and none of that modern option button hoo-ha, the brass behind the game have promised it to be “the best of now with the feeling of old.”

It’s All Fun And Games Until the Werewolf Enthusiast Grooms You For His ‘Slayer Covenant’

werewolf-enthusiast-slayer-covenant

What exactly is a slayer covenant? Well, according to Mark Edwards—a 44-year old man who often dressed in a werewolf costume and role-played sword and gun fights with scantily dressed teenage girls in the woods—it’s “a world wide secret organization of Werewolves, Vampires, Werecats or Hell cats, and Hybrid humans that work together to protect the human race from the evil of demons and other evil vampires or werewolves.” Edwards went on the run with one of his underage playmates who he was grooming for the slayer covenant, and is now on $500,000 bond in Ohio.
