Nawfal Trabelsi, Senior Vice President of Marketing for McDonald's France and Southern Europe said the the McBaguette is designed to appeal to the palates of local diners.”-(Credit: HuffPost )
If you know The Guy then you know I love me some fast food burgers . I love everything about them. From the taste to the convenience factor, The Guy loves every second of it. Who doesn’t love driving up to a window saying “Gimme a fudging burger you bimbos” and having a burger instantly in your fat face? It’s what America is all about. So when The Guy heard McDonalds has created a burger that is served on a baguette (rightfully titled the McBaguette) I was instantly intrigued. On one hand you have a burger which is awesome. Who doesn’t like a good cheese burger? Nazis. That’s who. On the other hand you have a baguette and anyone who has ever had a baguette will tell you that it is amazing. It is easily the best bread going. Hands down the best bread out there and if you disagree with me then I will straight up slap you in public. If anyone knows anything about sandwiches they will tell you that it all starts with good bread. So I don’t think it’s out of line to think that this sandwich is going to be awesome. Right? Anyone could figure that one out. However, my intrigue slowly turned to disappointment when I found out that this is only going to be offered in France. France? They fucking hate us in France and as an American company I think you should send it over to the States first. Let us stuff our fat faces with it. It will be a sure sell! I will buy like a thousand of them alone. If every customer buys a thousand McBaguettes in the allotted six weeks you are sure to sell like a bagillion of them! (Don’t quote me on that I haven’t double checked the math) Think about it McDonalds! America is here and we are calling for the McBaguette. Are you gonna answer the call? And before you say “Why don’t you just make your own” fuck off because why would I make something when I can drive up to a window and get it instantly? Huh? McDonalds get your act together and get The Guy a McBaguette. Just do it already!
Hank may not be the typical political animal: he has spent time on the streets; he's never voted; and he really doesn't seem to like wearing clothes to do his best work.
That's right, former Virginia Govs. George Allen (R) and Tim Kaine (D) now face a feline foe. Hank's a former street cat and political independent who advocates a job creation platform and "milk in every bowl." According to his Twitter account, Hank is also passionate about the creation of a Privacy Bill of Rights and the protection of consumer data. “- (Credit: HuffPost )
Now The Guy doesn’t like to get political too often but sometimes I just have to. Once and a while a great politician will come around and The Guy has to throw my support behind them. You may have seen my piece last week about the person who WILL BE our next President. If you did then you know The Guy knows a little bit about the political system we have here in the U.S. of A. This week The Guy has decided to throw his support behind someone running for a Senate seat in Virginia. I know what you are thinking “The Guy.....You live in MA. You can’t vote for someone in Virginia” Yea maybe simple minded people like you would think that but everyone knows politics is all about who you know. Right? Anyway my point is we have to get this cat elected. It has to be done. “Why?” You may ask. To that I say...why not? Huh? Why not? Could a cat really do that much worse than anyone else running this country? When is the last time you saw someone in Senate and said... “They are doing a great job” ? If you are like me you’ve literally never said that.....not even once....mostly because I don’t really pay attention to stuff like that but who cares? Listen I’m not going to sit here and say this cat is going to fix all of Virginias problems because that is a bold face lie. However, I will say this....the cat certainly won’t make anything worse (Don’t quote me on that). Just hear The Guy out for a minute. A vote for Hank isn’t just a vote for a cat. It’s a vote for naps 20 times a day. It’s a vote for scratching people for shits and giggles. It’s a vote for walking on keyboards when people are trying to use them. Most importantly it’s a vote for streets clean of all mice. And that my friend is what we call the American dream! AMERICA! U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A!

The CDC said the alert was based on research that began at Michigan State University. Scientists found 13 deaths between 2000 and 2011 of workers using products containing methylene chloride to strip paint from residential bathtubs. Three of the deaths were in Michigan, and the remaining 10 were reported in nine other states.
Methylene chloride is widely used as a degreaser and paint remover in industrial and home-improvement products.”-(Credit: HuffPost )
Wait….so you’re telling me that paint thinner isn’t good for you? You sure? You shouldn’t inhale it or come in contact with it? Since when? Is this a new development? Seems out there to me….. Why is this news? I’m very confused here. You are telling people to be careful around paint thinner because it can cause harm or death….ummm no shit? I’m really not trying to be a dick and I’m not trying to make fun of the dead but I think it’s common knowledge that you shouldn’t come in contact with paint thinner. You know what I mean? How do you not know that something like that could harm you? It’s a chemical that is used to strip paint. It’s obviously toxic. Maybe it’s just me but I think I would make sure everything was okay before I sit in a tub of chemicals. I’m not saying these people deserved to die but come on. It’s paint remover. It’s highly toxic. Take some precautions here. There is a reason that it removes paint. Come on people. Use your heads. Also, just going off of assumptions here, but wouldn’t these people get some sort of symptoms before just dropping dead? Maybe they got light headed? Maybe they got headaches? Maybe they started coughing blood? Maybe their insides started to itch? I’m not a doctor but I think it’s safe to say that all these are pretty good indicators that you have come in contact with something toxic and you should seek medical attention fairly quickly. Just saying. On any account it seems like a shitty way to go. You know….death by paint remover. Maybe it’s just me….but I think I’d rather spend time in Texas than dying via paint thinner. Happy Friday everyone!
P.S. Do you think that Rubinoff counts as paint thinner? Because I used to drink that shit on the reg up at UMass…….Just saying…..

“Zac Efron stepped out on the orange carpet at the premiere of "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" last weekend and was caught on camera handing some pocket items to a nearby person. In the video, he seems to drop a shiny condom package by accident.
We're not sure if it was, in fact, a condom the actor was toting around, but his nervous reaction to the mishap is priceless. He takes a deep breath and throws on his shades before attempting to hide a nervous laugh from the photographers.”-(Credit: HuffPost )
“Florida man Stephen Brewster, 32, was collared Tuesday on a car burglary charge -- his 40th arrest in Sarasota County, according to a police press release.
His rap sheet includes charges of fraud, criminal mischief, grand theft, petty larceny, robbery, loitering, stealing credit cards, and plenty more, WTSP reported.
"He's been through the judicial system [so much], he probably knows it better than I do," Sarasota Sheriff Tom Knight told the station.
It's yet unclear how long Brewster's 40th stay in jail will be -- he was denied bail at the county jail due to nine counts of probation violation, according to the Herald-Tribune.”-(Credit: HuffPost )
“You’ve been arrested twice? That’s cute. I’ve been arrested 40 times...and I ain’t done yet” Arrested 40 times? 40 TIMES?! I don’t even think I’ve been pulled over for minor speed infractions close to 40 times. At what point do you give up? I’m not talking about the criminal either. I’m talking about the sheriff. Like this dude has been arrested 40 times. He obviously just doesn’t give a shit. Jail can be used as a way to sort people out. Sometimes jail makes people want to be better. He has been there 40 times! It’s not working. I mean this guy must either just straight up hate the law or just loves jail. I don’t really see any other way. Like you can’t be stupid enough to think “Well it didn’t work the first 39 times but I think this time is going to go my way” I’m sorry sheriff but I think it’s time to just give up on this dude. Obviously the tactics you are using just aren’t getting through to him. He likes crime. It’s what he does. Just let him commit crimes. He is happy committing crimes. You are happy not having to arrest him and I’m happy having to not see shit like this as headline news! Maybe if you don’t chase him he will just stop? Like if you ignore someone that repeatedly annoys you then they eventually stop. Right? Or you could just throw him in jail forever. Save yourself the stress. Deal with the legal repercussions later. Then again...maybe the criminal should give up too. You know what I mean? If you’ve been caught breaking the law 40 times....wouldn’t you just stop? You obviously aren’t any good at it. You’ve failed at it 40 times! You know how many times I have to fail at something in order for me to give up? ONCE! Fucking once! Some may call me a quitter but I call it being smart. If you suck at something give it up. There’s other shit you can do. You know what my life motto is? “If at first you don’t succeed...Fuck it. It was stupid anyway.” Now that is a motto to live by!
After Juarez police responded to a carjacking about half a mile from the border, a gunfight broke out between police and the carjackers, Cook said. A bullet -- a type used in assault weapons such as M16s -- penetrated and exited the woman's calf, he said.
The unidentified woman, 48, who was shopping, was treated at a hospital and released with minor injuries, and her child -- whose age Cook did not know -- was not hurt, he said. The mother, a Mexican citizen, is a legal U.S. resident living in El Paso, Cook said.”-(Credit: HuffPost )
