No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

High and Low Culture Come Crashing Together

There's much bleak and dispiriting about the world's attention to the Kim Kardashian divorce. That the K-clan is famous in the first place boggles, given that their show causes the physical sensation of rapid brain-cell decay. But, Kim's heart-rending decision divorce after just 72 days has giving us the following delight - a limerick by Booker Prize winner novelist (and fatwa survivor) Salman Rushie, via twitter:

"The marriage of poor kim #kardashian was krushed like a kar in a krashian
her kris kried, not fair! why kan't I keep my share?
But kardashian fell klean outa fashian"


Also heartening, if it is true Kim left her baller to chase after Reggie Bush, I'm quite convinced she'll be able to catch him - just ask his Dolphins teammates and defenses around the AFC.
