Everyone deserves to feel like they belong - EVEN CLOWNS!

I have, up until today, steered clear of the creepy clown craze that's terrorizing the nation. I know that sounds like a stupid thing for the Keeper of the Clown Bell blog to do, but I was honestly waiting to address the issue closer to Halloween. But today I learned that "Target pulls clown masks from shelves amid creepy clown threats" and I thought to myself, "is this the same Target that opened its bathrooms to transrubes who want to pee sitting down?" Why yes, yes it is.
"We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity," the retailer said. "Everyone deserves to feel like they belong."
What is it about the word EVERYONE that these corporate nannies don't understand? Does the Evil Clown NOT belong in Target? How can the 300 pound transgender freak with painted face and ill fitting dress belong in the woman's bathroom but the cunning clown of terror have no place in this heartless establishment? I'm shocked and despondent because I thought Target was a corporation with a social contract and progressive sensibilities.  Instead they show their true colors of intolerance.


Hold your head high clowns for even though you've been marginalized by corporate America with their cloistered and retrograde worldview there is still a place for you on the internet. Surf on over to The Oriental Trading Company and shop till you're fingers bleed buying all the clown gear your black heart desires. Yes, it's hard to live in the shadows, to be marginalized and misunderstood - the hatred born of ignorance and fear is almost too much to shoulder, but you must skulk on ever Forward to a glorious clown friendly future.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work."

I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months viewershi…

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace: "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his audience (he calls them "…

New York Values

“Global Reach :30” CME Group—Commercial Spot from VSA Partners on Vimeo.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to use the island of Manhattan as my own personal driving range. I'm  in the futures and derivatives game and you never know what's going to happen. "Opportunities aren't always obvious" as I like to say and they "drop in" unexpectedly.


Sometimes it works out great.

Other times...


And those poor souls with a lump on their head don't like the game or putting the driving range on top of the Pan Am building. Last nights election was a long par 5 for the Constitutional Monarchist in this years election and he shot a triple bogey. One of the reasons:
"Unsurprisingly, it was Bernie Sanders who won the vast majority of the anti-Wall-Street Democratic vote." New York Democrats are crazy, but a majority of them are not dumb (in truth, a lot of the dumb ones have emigrated to Vermont) so while they'll flirt with "revolution" wh…
