stupid and senseless: neymar and psg


Paris St-Germain have signed Brazil forward Neymar for a world record fee of 222m euros (£200m) from Barcelona.

The deal for the 25-year-old smashes the previous record set when Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United from Juventus for £89m in August 2016.

He will earn 45m euros (£40.7m) a year – 865,000 euros (£782,000) a week – before tax from the initial five-year deal, a total outlay of £400m.

Neymar said he has joined “one of the most ambitious clubs in Europe”.

“Paris St-Germain’s ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings,” he added.

JUST ADMIT THAT YOU WENT FOR THE MONEY.

People are saying that he was always going to be in the shadow of his teammate, Lionel Messi, but Neymar is only 25 years old. Messi is 30. There would have been time for him to be the best at Barcelona. 

Neymar aside, £200m for one player is absolutely ridiculous. The money in football/soccer has ruined the game. 

I support Manchester United so I guess I can’t talk, but I still have a sour taste in my mouth over the Pogba transfer.

Just because you have a shit ton of money, it doesn’t mean you should spend it recklessly. Not even that, the imbalance in all football leagues is becoming ridiculous. 

If I’m a player on 200k a week with or on silly money, why am I going to give my all on the pitch? Win or lose, I get paid! 

I’m not even going to mention the C word or a term with the initials ML, but know that I’m thinking it! 

Wait…

Here’s an infographic for you. 

…that being said, I still have ‘marry a (somewhat intelligent) football player’ on my bucket list.

My body, mind and soul are ready


SO, SO, SO, SOOOOOOO READY. 

I will be recapping this for my three readers.

LOOK AT THAT FAUXSTACHE. God bless Nick Carter. He will always be the superior Carter brother (Aaron is currently lost, but he will find his way back. I would DM him on Twitter but I’m scared at the prospect of his response – I hear he flashed his bum on some form of social media recently. No bueno).

Howie, boo, I hope you’re debt-free. I will forgive you this one lapse. Well. Second. His 90s goatee wasn’t the best choice.

Joey Fatone. Well. He’s no stranger to SyFy. I remember his three seconds in Jersey Shore Shark Attack. He also looks like a young-ish Jim Beaver on this poster. LMAO.

AJ.  Born to be a villain. But not born to have that awful make-up on his face.

I love that the tagline is LARGER THAN LIFE! I suppose LARGER THAN DIRTY POP! Or I DRIVE MYSELF CRAZY! would not have worked as well.

Anyway, it’s okay, Nick. I forgive you…I am sure it is contextual and everything….

….cause that makes you laaaaaaaaarger than liiiiiiiiifeeeeeee!

Jared Padalecki and the evil golden arches


If you’re on a phone, you can see the video: here

So, let’s do a checklist (as opposed to receiving a check for eating McD’s. Sigh):

  • Using the kids as part of his Big Mac Pimpin’ – CHECK
  • Adequate information about whatever the hell he’s promoting? – NOPE
  • Adequate information about himself? – YEP!
  • Statement implying that he’s not just doing this for the money? CHECK. He owns his own business, y’all. I’m not hating on that, I just wouldn’t have put it in the clip if I wanted people to really go out and sample this All Day Breakfast thing, which doesn’t sound healthy but…
  • Some sort of clip hinting that with the right amount of exercise, we can all eat McDonald’s All Day menu and end up with chiseled abs and an excessive amount of beanies. – CHECK.
  • Another inexplicable explanation about how he flies back and forth by his own choosing – CHECK.

When the going gets tough…


…pimp out McDonald’s on Twitter?

Well. Let’s hope that Netflix pays him well for his [insert number] minute cameo on the GG revival.


I’m still on hiatus or whatever but I need to put this here so that I can come back and laugh at it later. In the meantime, I’m gonna go and pose with a cheeseburger and see if anybody wants to help me with my student loans.

 

That awkward moment when someone tries to out scam a scam.


Obviously I’m not accusing anybody of anything. But if I was…

  1. HOW HILARIOUS IS IT THAT ‘JENSEN ACKLES FANS‘ ARE SUPPOSEDLY TRYING TO ‘SCAM’ PEOPLE? joker laughAlso, fine so, 100% of the money might go to them. Or they might donate it. At least we know where the money is ending up. Jared, boo, we’re still waiting on your figures. We all know you ain’t about that not for profit life. You like the finer things in life.

  2. Clearly, no one has considered the irony of  encouraging the SPN  ‘Family’ to always keep fighting. They’re already good at that. I’m thinking of starting my own t-shirt fund – WWSFW – World Wide Supernatural Family Wrestling for when the shippers get tired of fighting and need to duke it out, all professional like. Twenty percent of the twenty percent that I won’t keep for myself will be donated to…myself. All for a good cause.wpid-wp-1444270289403.gif Oh and that is clearly the face of a man who is happy with his life choices.

  3. I don’t know who I hate more in this scenario: whoever made this image, Jared and Jensen for being the image or Jared himself for posting this for public consumption along with fifty million exclamation marks. I’m going to go with all three. It’s kind of like the picture equivalent of Jared releasing some kind of commercial for his shirts set to ‘Blurred Lines’. Creepy.

Apparently it’s Motivational Monday! Oh, and the quest for Jared’s private jet continues!


I can’t even be bothered to write a long-winded rant. Just FYI, Jared and his charity launches are all bullshit. Most of the money he raises is NOT going to charity. Last week I think he (and Jensen, cause why not?) came up with some kind of fund called The Pack Fund along with Creation that donates to causes that ‘Jared and Jensen and the fans(!!!!! Yes, the fans!!!!) find worthy. Only 20% actually goes to charity and the rest is going straight to the Private Jet Fund!* (more…)
