Your Chyron of the Day

'Greek Love Gone Wrong?' (CNBC, 9 February 2015)

Seriously, how can anyone expect me to pass that moment in human history without noticing? I mean, sure, it’s there; no point in accurately claiming I didn’t put the television to CNBC in the first place―it doesn’t matter. There is a confluence of events, and for some reason the Universe sent me a treat today.

If you need this one explained, don’t worry about it; you probably wouldn’t appreciate the explanation, anyway.

But, yes, really. They went with that one.

Treasures of the marketplace.

Puti-Toots, Greek Style

He's so dreamy ...?!

Puti-Toots and the HydraVladimir Putin has gone Greek.

The prior statement is really funny if you’re an American who remembers what the phrase “Greek style” meant in the 1970s. After all, Puti-Toots is the world’s most prominent (and, as of this year, eligible) closet homosexuals ever recorded in history. Whether frothing up pogroms against his fellow gays under the excuse that homosexuality will make good heterosexual Russian husbands go gay, or posing for shirtless photos showing him being gentle with a horse, the Russian boss really seems to enjoy making people wonder what’s really going on behind those sensitive, manly, thoughtful eyes. Whatever.

Come out, come out, Puti-Toots. You’re not really fooling anyone. That is to say, we get it. You’re manly. You’re powerful. You’re vulnerable to homoerotic temptation. And look at the homoeroticism you’re inspiring in your fanboys.
