Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I'm Dave-El and this is I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, the blog recommended by 4 out of 5 psychiatrists as an excellent example of what happens when you don't take your meds!

This is Friday which means it's time for that weekly post that puts the digital butter on your internet toast, bROkEN nEWs!

This week, bROkEN nEWs is brought to you by...

#BrokenNews "Another Awful Moment For '60 Minutes'" Someone just found Mike Wallace still in his office.

#BrokenNews "White House To Tap New Ambassador To China" Er, isn't tapping people the NSA's job?

#BrokenNews  "Task Force Urging Limits On NSA Surveillance" Like occasionally sticking fingers in their ears going "We’re not listening! We’re not listening!"

#BrokenNews "Obama Jabs Putin, Picks Openly Gay Delegates For Winter Olympics In Russia" And as you know, Putin is against guy-on-guy jabbing.

#BrokenNews "GOP Rep Proposes Poor Students Sweep Floors In Exchange For Lunch" In fact, they can use what they sweep up as food so that's a double-win!

And now...

Hello, kids! Have you ever started to say some stupid...
and you went right on saying it anyway!
Now we're going to count FIVE...1, 2, 3, 4, 5 times you should really think about keeping your thoughts to yourself!

5 Times You Should Just Keep Your Mouth Shut

1) "I don’t mean to sound racist…"
2) "Well, now that you mention it…"
3) "No! No, I’m NOT okay and you want to know why?"
4) "If you REALLY want my opinion…"
5) "Hi! I’m Ted Cruz!"

Thanks, Count! Now back to the headlines!

#BrokenNews "What Microsoft Doesn't Want You To Know About Its Tablets" It’s really an Etch-a-Sketch.

#BrokenNews "'Affluenza' Teen Hit With 5 Lawsuits" Imagine Richie Rich as a sociopath!  

OK, let me get this straight: rich teenage prick gets drunk, causes a wreck that kills FOUR people.

And he gets probation? Because this asshole was too rich to care? This was his defense, folks! And it WORKED? Hey, I want to try that. (ahem) "Yes, I was too stressed out by the pressures of being part of a shrinking middle class to be aware of the consequences of my actions when I drove my car into the front of a Sears store." (Don't worry, it was Sears; no one was there to get hurt.)

You know what I need now?

Besides medication?

Let's do the picture thing!

C'mon! We gotta keep the headlines coming!  

#BrokenNews "Does The NHL Need To Outlaw Fighting?" Those damn hockey games keeping interrupting the fights!

#BrokenNews  "What's Lurking Under Yellowstone Might Surprise You" GODZILLA!

Wait, if it IS Godzilla then no, I'm not surprised.

#BrokenNews "Americans Don't Care What Race Santa Is — Except For Republicans" Wait until the GOP find out Santa's gay!*

*OK, I'm just kidding! Santa's not into dudes! Really! Geez, how can anyone even suggest that at all?

When the truth is that Santa's really a woman and "Mrs. Claus" is her lesbian life partner.

What's this? Why, it's more...

Hey kids!
Do you think Mommy and Daddy look old?
Of course they look old! You've worn them out, you little buggers! But there are 8 things...Wow, eight! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 fashion no-no's that make Mommy and Daddy look even older than they are.

8 Fashion Mistakes That Instantly Age You
1) Coveralls
2) Feed store cap
3) John Deere cap
4) Bonnet
5) Black socks with shorts
6) White socks with black pants
7) Any ensemble with a high denim-to-plaid correlation
8) Nightshirt (preferably with soup stains)

Thank you, Count, for those helpful tips. Now, more headlines!

#BrokenNews "'Duck Dynasty' Star Makes Shockingly Vile Anti-Gay Comments" I only find it shocking that someone thinks this is shocking.

#BrokenNews "'Duck Dynasty' Family Speaks Out" Don't get on their case about the anti-gay stuff. They've said shit about black people too. Again, trying to be shocked, failing miserably.

#BrokenNews "'Duck Dynasty' Star Suspended Over Vulgar Anti-Gay Comments" This is a so-called 'reality show'! This homophobic jackass as been suspended from his own life?!?! Well, it appears he's already suspended himself from reality.

Speaking of being suspended from reality...

#BrokenNews  "Justin Bieber Says He's 'Retiring'" He should retire before he becomes a total douche bag and…whoops!

Never mind.

What the hell? Another...

Hey kids!
A relationship is when two people have a clear understanding of each other's needs. Or so I've been told.
Mrs. Count doesn't seem to think my needs are important. Blah! Anyway, here are seven...ooh, I love seven!
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 ways to kill a relationship.

7 Things That Will Kill Any New Relationship
1) A gun
2) Also a knife works too
3) Really, almost any blunt instrument. A shovel, maybe.
4) Bow & arrow, you know, if the relationship is standing a long way away.
5) Electrocution. Careful, don't stand too close.
6) Poison. If you have the time for that.
7) Not being attentive to your partner's needs

OK, Count, that's three times you've butted in to today's-

Yes, THREE! One, two, THREE! BLAH!

That's it! Go home, Count! I don't want any trouble from the Sesame Street people anyway!



Hey, the headlines are back! Whazzup, headlines?

#BrokenNews "Brutal Anti-Gay Law Passed In Uganda" Africans restricting gay people? Now the Duck Dynasty dude does not know how to process that.

#BrokenNews  "Lindsay Lohan Wants To Resurrect Her Music Career" You know, if the porn thing doesn’t work out.

#BrokenNews "Shia LaBeouf Apologizes After Short Film Plagiarism Accusations" After looking through Bartlett’s Quotations for apology material.

#BrokenNews  "Happy 70th Birthday, Keith Richards!" You’re finally as old as you’ve looked for the last 30 years now.
