GoDaddy.com's customer service department lies:

Or, talk with our highly trained, courteous support staff – they're waiting to take your call. Whatever time it takes to assist you, that's the time you'll receive: 24/7 Sales & Support: (480) 505-8877 - 24/7 Billing Support: (480) 505-8855.

Hah! I got NO assistance from their Sales & Support line, and, in fact was told that I had to track down the account owner yesterday. Adding insult to injury, more than 24 hours since I first started trying to fix this mess, I still haven't gotten word that this has been resolved.

Don't do business with GoDaddy.com. Those douche bags are not careful with sensitive client data and their customer service stinks.

Update: Just to make sure I'm 100% accurate here, it's now been over 24 hours since the email answering my email to GoDaddy's customer service, sent almost 5 hours after my initial email, was received. I said it before and I'll say it again -- if you're doing business with GoDaddy, you are nuts.

Real cringes? Lemme see...

I'm guilty as hell of #1 -- usually in harmony, and never quietly. (Just ask this guy. He's my most recent witness.) It makes me happy.

#2? Occasionally guilty. Big fat hairy deal. I also over use elipses.

#3? Nope. Whatever praying I have to do is between my Maker and me alone.

#4? WGN Channel 9 (news and Bozo's circus), CBS Channel 2, NBC Channel 5 and some crazy cable access channel back in the early 90's to promote this cat club's shows. (Admitting to belonging to a cat club? Now there's cringe-worthy!) But why stop there? I've also been on the radio a gazillion times, again promoting the cat show, but most recently doing a little segment for Drunks in the News. Shameful, I know, but hella fun.

#5? Never going to happen in this world or the next.

What's your definition of cringe-worthy?

The scientifically proven ultimate hangover cure? A bacon sandwich! (Bacon! Yummy, yummy bacon!)

However, I think Friendly's new Grilled Cheese Burger Melt may just take second place...



... followed by the KFC Double Down...



Yep. All you'd need to complete the cure is an order of onion rings and big tall glass of ice cold milk.

I was never a Jerry Seinfeld fan before, but I think I just became one:
Twelve days after Lady Gaga wound up in his box at Shea Stadium during a Mets game, Jerry Seinfeld has called her “a jerk” and then some. Joking or no? Read and decide.

“This woman is a jerk. I hate her,” Seinfeld said during a WFAN radio interview on Monday, perhaps . “I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for.”

Gaga, dressed in bra and swilling beer, was moved from her front row seat to Seinfeld’s empty box (without his knowledge) after flipping off photographers.

“You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?” he said.

Seinfeld first said when asked about the June 10th incident, reports the NY Post, “I wish her the best.. you take one ‘A’ off of that and you’ve got gag.”

“I don’t know what these young people think or how they promote their careers,” Seinfeld said. “I’m older, I’m 56. I look at Lady Gaga the way Keith Hernandez watches these kids when they pull the pocket out, they wear the inside-out pocket. … Do you think he understands that? He can’t understand that. That’s a new game, that’s kids.”

He added, “I’m not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure — you could die of exposure.”
You go, sir!

In another stunning example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect, the federal goverment halts the dredging of sand berms in Louisiana the same day the cap was removed from the leaking well in the gulf.

No matter how you slice it or dice it, dredging sand berms can't be any more harmful than letting that gusher continue to flow unabated.

Smooth move, folks. I grant you major style points for the sheer breathlessness and sweeping scope of your complete and utter incompetency.

I would note that she was singing near me, not to me. I ran and hid. She just kept singing.

Freaking Irish.

Listen here, mister -- I was singing along with the guy who was walking towards us singing the melody to this little ditty.

I just added the harmony line, and at the same volume he was delivering.

I'll give you style points for not running, actually!

That kat looks like a North Korean soccer team player going home to face KIM Jong IL.
