  1. That Miss America is an idiot. Sadly she probably does represent a percentage of this country. I'd be more worried about my kids being taught by an ignorant beauty queen.

  2. @fernlaplante - "Mission" AMerica - NOT "Miss" America.
    Reading is Fundamental

  3. @Jeff, you are right. My error. And thanks for being a d-bag about it.

  4. Wow, that is the first "hot" picture I've ever seen of Messi. A decent haircut does wonders. He usually has a mullet!

    I'll be shocked if there are more than 2 people on this blog who've heard of Messi. He deserves far more attention than that greasy hack Ronaldo.

  5. So now we are LGBTQ? Hell, why don't we just add every letter of the alphabet and include the entire population of the world?

  6. @Rick. Several universities have LGBTQA. Not so sure why we need the Q or A. Q should fall under B. A is for allies.

  7. Messi looks very nice...

  8. I always thought Endora should have had her own show.

  9. Q can stand for Queer or Questioning. Queer or Questioning is not the same as Bi. In particular, some people who don't fit neatly into just one category (e.g. a lesbian trans-woman) might feel more aptly identified as "queer". And it's a bit biphobic to equate bisexuality and questioning.

  14. I know Messi, how not (soccer is a kind of a religion around here) and a gay friend of mine doesn’t think he’s attractive, so I always tease him about that famous player. Not a fashion model perfect face, but come on, he is cute. And has a million dollar bubble butt, that’s for sure.

    Posted by: Lexxvs | Aug 11, 2011 2:54:00 AM

  15. For me, Messi just keeps getting more and more attractive. Especially since he lost the mullet ( ).

    Another recent pic:

    Oh and he seems like a good guy too.

  16. @nodnarb - I know who Messi is, but I'm Brazilian so I guess I'm biased. In other ridiculous football hair news, do you know who Neymar is?
