Although not known for much else, Hudspeth County has become notorious for busting marijuana-toting celebrities. From music icons Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg to The Social Network’s Armie Hammer, the West Texas city has been enjoying the publicity. More recently, the county will become known for something else: Steven Seagal. After filming a new movie in Canada, the actor is expected to help patrol the Hudspeth County area, and train colleagues in martial arts and weapons techniques. So if you don’t want Mr. Seagal to karate chop your car in half, stash your marijuana and other illegal substances properly.
Super Bowl halftime shows have become much more unpredictable throughout the years. Since Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction back in 2004, those in charge of the event have since played it safer, although we can all agree that 2011’s halftime performance could’ve easily been improved by alternative means (when in doubt, flash it out). For this year’s performance, pop superstar Madonna hopes to deal away with the controversy caused by past acts, but considering she’s being accompanied by rebellious songstress M.I.A., who knows what will happen.
As if Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal didn’t learn his lesson when he referred to First Lady Michelle Obama as “Mrs. YoMama” in an email sent to GOP colleagues, O’Neal returns with an even more controversial issue. The Republican representative recently sent out another email to GOP colleagues, advising them to endorse a controversial prayer that seems to call for President Obama’s untimely death. Taken from Psalm 108:9, the prayer reads, “Let his days be few; and let another take office.” The real controversy arises in the next verse of Psalm 109, which continues, “May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.” Although O’Neal’s office has insisted that the psalm’s use was only referring to the first segment, O’Neal’s statement continues to prove one thing: parts of our nation are still being run by absolute dumbasses.
