I Hope it Snows.
London-based Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid has been forced to defend herself against claims that her design for Qatar’s Al-Wakrah stadium, which is being built for the 2022 football World Cup, is based on the female genitalia, after images of the “vagina stadium” went viral two weeks ago.
The architect insists that the building’s swollen flaps, which part along the roof to frame a central ovoid opening, were inspired by the sails of local dhow sailing boats, but others have ridiculed their labial similarities. The Daily Show ran images of the stadium sprouting a forest of pubic hair, describing Hadid as “the Georgia O’Keeffe of things you can walk inside” and sent its sports correspondent to find the clitoral “press box” in vain. Hee!
In support of the argument that it looks like Lady parts, I will offer that it also closely resembles This. In the meantime, if there’s grass on the field, play ball!
Going to a live performance by the band GWAR is the most fun way I can think of to completely destroy whatever clothes you happen to be wearing at the time! David Lee Beowulf and I went to see them at either Irving Plaza or the Bowery Ballroom – who can even remember? — ages and ages ago and I think I wore an old pair of pajamas to the show. Fake Blood Spurting Everywhere! Metal! Fun!
GWAR super fan Jeff Cantrell has started a petition to get GWAR hired as the Halftime show entertainment at the 2015 Superbowl and you can sign it now and lend your support at This Link! The petition currently has over 46,000 signatures and he needs to reach 50,000 signatures before the petition can be submitted. I could not possibly give less of a shit about the Super Bowl, but I love GWAR! So what are you waiting for? Get clicking!
Good Luck Guys!
According to Neatorama, this is the snack everyone will be eating during the Super Bowl next week, or whenever it is. Football is not my thing, but if you have a Super Bowl party and make these Chicken Wing Cupcakes, I will come to your house and eat them with you.
I’m not sure what this sign has to do with German footballer Kevin-Prince Boateng, but I found it lingering just above an article about Boateng, and of course the article is in German, so someone please tell me what it says, and what a sign about curbing your dog has to do with a sports guy I never heard of before today. Thank you; drive through.
Personally, I couldn’t give a crap about the Super Bowl. This evening I’ll be watching some Netflix, then Big Love and Flight of the Conchords in a blissfully Football-free wonderland. And I already had a big lunch at Gonzalez Y Gonzalez (hey, $5 Margaritas at the bar!) so I won’t be eating again tonight. But if I were to attend a Superbowl party (say, because I lost a bet) I sure would be happy to see this stadium made of tasty snacks waiting for me to sample. Here’s what’s in it:
1 Pound of Guacamole
15 Oz. Queso Dip For The Steelers End Zone
15 Oz. Salsa For The Cardinals End Zone
2 Oz. Sour Cream for the Field Lines
15 Vienna Sausages
Helmets – 3 Oz. Sharp Cheddar Cheese
The Goal Posts:
1 Slim Jim for Each Goal Post
1 Oz. Monterey Jack Cheddar To Anchor (each)
1 Pound of Bacon
1 Bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos
1 Bag of Cheetos
1 Bag of Corn Tortilla Chips
1 Bag of Chex Mix
20 Oz. Football-Shaped Summer Sausage (optional) (on second thought, no, this isn’t optional. Go buy one.)
