Heckuva job, Cory! Vulgar celeb tolerance brigade comes out strong for Booker

http://twitter.com/#!/CoryBooker/status/366727998730285056

On Monday, U.S. Senate hopeful Cory Booker proudly hit the stump with actress Eva Longoria, the 2012 Obama campaign co-chair known for her vulgar retweets about conservatives. (You know, those were the tweets she shared — and deleted — to create “dialogue.”)

But Longoria isn’t the only nasty piece of work pimping Booker’s Senate bid. A quick glance at his celeb supporters reads like a who’s who of Twitchy’s entertainment archives … and not in a good way.

Comedienne Sarah Silverman thinks joking about getting a “quickie aborsh” is as hilarious as telling Rick Santorum to “suck a d*ck.” Earlier this summer, she was spanked soundly for her pitiful walk-back of N-word tweets related to the the ranch leased by Gov. Rick Perry.

“Brave thinker” Lena Dunham likened voting for Obama to first-time sex and pissed on Memorial Day. Just yesterday she was called out by her own side for the unbearable whiteness of being a “Girls” cast member.

What was that about unbearable whiteness? Self-appointed race cop Mia Farrow is the one to ask. She’s also a huge fan of gay-baiting anyone she doesn’t like, from Justice Scalia to the Pope.

Race-baiting liar Russell Simmons is a race-baiting race-baiter. Enough said. And his lying political director Michael Skolnik is cut from the same mold.

Classy crowd, huh?

Too bad the oh-so-tolerant and loving Cher hasn’t weighed in … yet. For now, she’s keeping her laser-like focus on the “TBaggers.”

The slogans are funny, because they are true! Here are a few of our favorites so far.

Why is ‘Justin makes us wet’ trending?

http://twitter.com/#!/Amelia_1Dfan/status/191466602359816192

At first we assumed that Justin Bieber’s fans were responsible.  But, no. Virtually all of the  “Justin makes us wet” tweets are from critics:

oh my god ' justin makes us wet' is trending, when all Biebers fans are about 12 #toomuch

— Sophie Cooper (@sophiecooper) April 15, 2012

Viewers prefer Tina and Amy to Oscars’ ‘boring’ host Seth MacFarlane

http://twitter.com/#!/EHolmesWSJ/status/305847848178700288

Well, those are some big heels to fill. The Academy Awards show hadn’t begun yet tonight, but viewers were already clamoring for SNL duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who hosted the Golden Globes. William Shatner said what everyone is apparently thinking.

“Why couldn’t they just get Tina and Amy to host?” – William Shatner, making a guest appearance during Seth MacFarlane’s opening

— People magazine (@peoplemag) February 25, 2013

As far as I’m concerned, the #Oscars began and ended when William Shatner asked “Why can’t Tina and Amy host everything?”

— Richard West (@RichieOnTV) February 25, 2013

Shatner got it right.Bring out Tina and Amy.

— Nich Boutique (@nichboutique) February 25, 2013

Off to a rocky start:

Wow – McFarlane is actually playing safe. By which I mean boring #oscars

— Saich (@FiascoPictures) February 25, 2013

Seth McFarlane is boring and obnoxious ..

— Allison Jones (@jonseyy17) February 25, 2013

Seth McFarlane is actually kind of boring and the Capt Kirk thing is lame.#Oscars2013Glad that part is over.

— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) February 25, 2013

What is this? The Seth McFarlane show?? He’s dancing. He’s Singing. He’s making terrible jokes. He’s boring everyone. #oscars

— Keira Soleore (@KeiraSoleore) February 25, 2013

I don’t mind Seth McFarlane’s cynicism, but I mind his not being very funny.boring. #Oscars

— lindastern (@lindastern) February 25, 2013

Seth McFarlane is not funny. At all. Like he is boring. So boring

— David beety (@machinesix) February 25, 2013

“Well, WE thought you were great!” – Seth McFarlane’s family in about four hours.

— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) February 25, 2013

Just sprinkle a few Sarah Palin-bashing jokes into the mix and you’ll be as good as liberal gold, Seth.

A Turkish Company Is Cleverly Using Recycling Bins To Help Stray Dogs.

There are hundreds of thousands of homeless dogs all over the world. It’s difficult to put a finger on why there are so many. Some groups believe that irresponsible pet breeding and sales have resulted in the homelessness boom, while others suggest the lack of population control. Regardless of the cause, there are homeless dogs that need our help. Pugedon, a Turkish company, is working to help the people and the strays that live in Istanbul. The idea that they developed is brilliant.

The homeless dog population in Istanbul is a serious problem. The city’s streets are filled with these urban strays.

So, Pugedon developed something that would help both people AND the stray dogs.

It’s genius.

This box is just a recycling bin. However, it can do so much more than that. The machine has containers for water (where you can pour your leftover water before recycling the bottle) and for dog food. Every time a bottle is recycled, a fixed ratio of kibbles is dispensed into the container. The recycled bottles cover the cost of the food, so no one has to fund the supply. Not only are people going to recycle more, but the starving stray population can be fed. Check out the machine in action:

(H/T BigThink) This recycling bin hits two important birds with one simple stone. It would be incredible to see more units like this appear all over the world. We are drowning in plastic that we use. Strays are starving. It’s time to find a solution. Share this epic idea by clicking below.

I Definitely Never Thought I’d See These Animals Hanging Out Together.

If cats and dogs can be buddies, no animal friendships should surprise us. Yet this one blew me away. Deer and chickens? It doesn’t seem wrong, but it certainly doesn’t seem like something that would ever happen.

In the Scottish Highlands, anything is possible… when it comes to deer and chickens palling around, at least. What’s crazy about the pairing is, once you see a deer and a chicken together, it seems like something that should happen everywhere. If you live in a place with both deer and chickens, you have to put them in touch the way Martin Davies, because it’s really a treat. Take a look!

A deer and a chicken? What?

Martin Davies

The gang’s all here.

Martin Davies

Wow. They really are close friends.

Martin Davies

That doesn’t mean the deer should let the chicken walk all over them like that.

Martin Davies

Well, I guess it is pretty adorable.

Martin Davies

What a crew! I hope their bond is from a legitimate fondness for each other, and not a mutual fear of being eaten by surrounding humans.

9. Sky Terrace, Sydney, New South Wales

Tim Tebow will not be the next ‘Bachelor’

http://twitter.com/#!/TimTebow/status/177067557029818369

Nobody wanted Tim Tebow to become the next “Bachelor” more than ABC. Having the Broncos quarterback looking for love on the show would have probably broken every single television rating record known to man. Let’s face it, the whole world has been taken over by Tebow-mania and whether you hate him or love him, there’s no denying that he’s one of the most popular sports figures in America today.

When rumors broke about the possibility of Tebow becoming ABC’s next Jesse Palmer, it’s no wonder why twitterverse ran rampant with excitement.

Tebow, however, crushed those rumors and said he’s “definitely not” going to be on the show.

Hopefully he realizes he needs to put love on the back-burner and try to learn how to become a consistent drop-back passer in the NFL.

David Sirota: Narcissism is assuming you know more than climate scientists

http://twitter.com/#!/davidsirota/status/392501711782158336

Salon contributor David Sirota was taking on one of those climate change deniers when he stumbled on this curious revelation, which makes us wonder: does anyone remember Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore’s field of study? Was it climate science?
