The Week in Smirk – 07.08.12

| May 20, 2012

On Thursday a parliamentary inquiry in Tokyo concluded that the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was not at fault for last year’s tsunami; rather it was a man-made disaster. Our own Joe Waks proposes a more obvious, an menacing, culprit.   In London something happened at Barclay’s (which is apparently some sort of  “global financial services provider,” but we’re not exactly sure what that’s supposed to mean) did something about global interests rates and then people got terribly, terribly upset about it and then some guy named Mr. Diamond (a name we think sounds very suspicious) was all, “I got physically sick” about it.  So sad.    Also last Wednesday something else totally happened, or did it? In Switzerland (Exactly, we roll our eyes every time, too. Pussies.), physicists announced that they found a subatomic particle, which appears to be the elusive Higgs boson, also known as the “God particle.”  This marries two theories of physics that were previously at conflict with one another.  If indeed this is the Higgs boson, it answers as many questions as it will propose, then it will do the opposite, and when you get drunk you can have a tautological discussion about this until you sober up and get drunk again, and you still won’t fully understand what just happened. Exactly. America’s favorite “Pa” died on Tuesday. Andy Griffith, the beloved father from his namesake television show died at the age of 86, which lead to shocked reporters freaking the fuck out for forty-eight hours nonstop. We loved him as Pa and were saddened as well, but we thought Matlock was kind of a dick, if truth be told. ♣  On Saturday, The New York Times reported that the president of Exodus International believes his theory of completely curing gays is not 100 percent effective. Reporters found it difficult to understand Mr. Chambers, however, as he had an enormous dick in his mouth during the entire  press conference.
