Bwoglines: Conservative Edition

hey kids, come and play!

It’s been a week since Obama was reelected, and residents of many states are petitioning to secede from the United States. Most of these are Southern states, but even New York and New Jersey have sent letters. None of these cite the reelection, but suspiciously the rise in their arrival began last Tuesday… (Politico)

In a shocking but unsurprising turn of events, the puppeteer who played Elmo in Sesame Street has been accused of having a relationship with a sixteen-year old boy. This can’t go unprotested. #OccupySesameStreet (Detroit Free Press)

The Institute of International Education released its annual open doors survey yesterday, showing that US colleges are welcoming a record number of international students. These supposedly contribute $23 billion to the US economy every year, which still somehow doesn’t eliminate our student life fees. (Yahoo)

Oxford University Press has named “GIF” the word of the year for 2012. But the debate rages on, is it pronounced “jiff” or “giff”? (Wired)

    @WTF “Shocking but unsurprising”? First of all, if something were unsurprising it would not be shocking, but aside from your oxymoron, why is it unsurprising? Are you implying because Kevin Clash is openly gay, it’s not surprising he’d commit statutory rape? How homophobic. Or are you instead saying that people who work with children are inclined to molest them? That’s insulting to those of us who have devoted our careers to teaching, mentoring, or otherwise caring for children. Word to the wise, Bwog: be careful with the molestation jokes.

      @torn i agree with this completely but also think that a hesitance to be sarcastic, perhaps out of reasons like the very good one you mention, is no small part of what has made the bwog of 2012 suck so much more than the bwog even of 2010.
