"I'm Spartacus! Here, Let Me Show You My Nipples!"

So there's been a lot of buzz about the new Starz! show Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Since it combines ancient Rome, naked menz, and Lucy Lawless, I am, of course, so there. I saw the first episode the other night, and while there's definitely enough there to keep me interested, I must say this review pretty much hits all the ludicrousies (BTW, word nerd alert: using the word "ludicrous" regarding gladiators is a nice bit of unintentional punning) of the show. Still, you know, naked menz, so...

Today In Word Nerdery

Make your baked goods font-licious with Helvetica cookie cutters!

Polyamory is wrong!
Mixed Latin and Greek roots are an abomination unto the Lord! I blame gay marriage.

Where's Your Monogamy Now!

It's often asserted that swans mate for life. But these divorced swans shatter that one last romantic illusion we hold. Just tragic. I blame gay marriage, destroying the sanctity of swan marriage. (I also wonder if a mallard served as the divorce attorney.)

Digital Tome

If I had a laptop, you better believe this is what it would look like.

I'm Sure They Were Made By Well-Paid American Puppies

I can't believe I'm linking to American Apparel (just looking at the clothes makes me feel like Dov Charney is molesting me), but I think by now we've proved that, in the face of some cute dogs, my principle and self-respect go right out the window. Look at the Pekes!!!!111!!

The Soothing Balm For A Sucky Day

A pug playing the keyboard. Take that, Keyboard Cat!

Also, as if you hadn't already heard the squeeing from all corners of the Internet earlier in the week, the Shinba Inu webcam that took the world by storm last year is back with a new litter. Squeeeee!

That's Definitely Fey (And By "Fey" I Mean, Of Course, Gay)

Something they don't mention in folklore is that fairies prefer boxers. It's true! Also, they're all lithesome young Greek men. Who knew?

"No One Understands Me! I Hate You EVERYone!"

A British otter "'is going through some kind of teenage rebellion'" by climbing up a tree, where she can be alone with her Taylor Lautner posters and write in her diary.


As someone who's just a bit addicted to FarmVille on Facebook, this ad makes me laugh. It's funny 'cause it's true.

We welcome two new sites to the sidebar: Will Clark World and The Tired Old Queen at the Movies.

I've been a Will Clark fan for his contributions to gay adult cinema for some time (that crooked, wicked grin and that red hair? *weak knees*), but I've recently found that he's also a big soap fan like I am. It is a great honor that, after leaving a comment on his fabulous blog, he invited me to trade links. There is occasionally NSFW content, but I've been told it will soon be discreetly purdahed behind a tag.

The Tired Old Queen is Steven Hayes, whom you may recognize from the movie Trick and any number of other independents. He schools us all on Old Hollywood magic, a vital and necessary transferal of knowledge between the gay generations.

Seven Lost Books That Would Have Changed The World

Humor aside, this list of books that would have changed the world had they survived makes my bibliophile heart ache. Stupid people throwing books in rivers or burning libraries! *shakes fist*

Bourgeois Nerd is lucky; we attract a superior readership who, when they comment (which sadly isn't nearly often enough *hint, hint*) only provide intelligent, insightful commentary. But other blogs aren't so lucky. Trolls infest the Internet, and here's a taxonomy of that pernicious beast.

Beware Of Bear

Beware of Bubba, the big bear burglar of California! He's a 700 pound and bullet-scarred wall of nonhibernating bear supercriminal! The authorities can't catch him! Bullets bounce off his head! Dude is hardcore.

Cold As A Witch's Tit

As you may have heard, it's been a bit nippy lately. But where we can bundle up in Snuggies and central heating, what about our animal friends? How do they cope with the cold? Various ways, including sleeping bags, interspecies snorggling, and huddling near power plants. The polar bears, of course, are thrilled.

For He's A Jolly Good Fellow...

The Invincible Super-Blog celebrates five years of bear-punching and Batman! Hooray!

What is it with this year and fifth birthdays, anyway? Scott's is coming up, too. Guess everyone was all blogging it up at the end of 2004/beginning of 2005!

Can I Get A Polar Bear Plasma?

With the polar ice caps melting, it's time polar bears start looking into alternate employment. I hear there are some exciting opportunities in the audiovisual industry.

Workout Tip

When one finishes exercising, it is perhaps counterproductive to each a cookie right after, or contemplate grabbing a calorific soda.


This is the kind of thing that gets my motor running. I mean, I've seen cock socks and strapless jockstraps before, and never thought they were particularly hot, but this... Just think: It leaves the ass even more conveniently open and available ass for rimming, and produces higher-concentrated musk! A jock fetishists' delight.

And then there's
this. Yummy! I've always been a fan of the brief; I need support, so boxers are out, and I've never found a boxer-brief that really fit right. Plus, I think there's nothing hotter than a man in plain white briefs.

The Recession Hits Us All

Even the man with the world's largest penis can't get a job. What has happened to this country?
