My Daily Quarrel with Life: Wednesday, 05 Dec 2018

Why oh why do I like such websites as this one? Jezebel.com --- Wait, conservative friends and family members, don't follow that link!

There's nothing wrong with it. It's just not, let me think of the expression, very high brow.

So I shouldn't be reading articles with titles like:

Megan Fox Confirms She Hooked Up With Shia LaBeouf: 'I Love Him'

(Because I don't even know who Megan Fox is, though I've heard of Shia LaBeouf. And, eeeeww, why would anyone want to know about her hook-up with him?) (See tomorrow's post for more about Shia LaBeouf.)

And here's one:

The Cardi B and Nicki Minaj Beef Is Back and Beefier Than Ever

(Because I barely know who these people are, from the magazines whose covers I read voraciously in every grocery-checkout-line I'm ever in, I don't care about their beef. Do you hear that, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj? I don't care about your beef!

And I don't even care about why some Jezebel writer thinks men should be banned from writing about sex---for pete's sake, I agree with her, but why would I care about why she agrees with me?

Ban Men... From Writing About Sex


And so on, and so forth.

I'll tell you why I like this website, because it's entertaining, sometimes even funny, and it frees me from the non-news I often see on other, "newsier," websites.

Plus, every once in a while, it has a great story, like this one:

Payless Opens Fake Luxury Store, Tricks Influencers Into Paying Designer Prices for Its Shoes

("Palessi," indeed!)

LOL. Good men don’t WRITE about sex. Gosh darn it.
