1.  What the hell, Bill Peduto?  Are we all being punked? (h/t REARless)

2.  From an article about dogfighting in western PA:

The statute was originally motivated by a movement in California to ban “crush videos,” in which women wearing spike heels and short skirts slowly crush small animals to death for the sexual gratification of foot fetishists.

And once again, we can all thank the PG for showing us that the world is full of creepy freaks who better stay the hell away from me.

3.   From a PG article reviewing the recent Ozzfest 2007, specifically the band Lordi:

By far my favorite performance of the day, mostly because I couldn’t stop laughing. The Finnish band takes more than two hours putting on its costumes and makeup to look like the offspring of a Klingon and “Conan the Barbarian” villain.

Take a good look at these dudes.

And once again, we can all thank the PG for showing us that the world is full of creepy freaks who better stay the hell away from me.

4.  Dunkin Donuts will be opening 105 locations in the Burgh over the next several years.  That is NOT a typo.  105.  That donut-making dude is going to be TIRED.

5.  Holy shit!  Now THAT’S a winner, right there!  Man, if I were a dad, would my daughters be locked up! (h/t Sparky)

6.  In case you didn’t know that Leona Helmsley was one crazy bitch, let me tell you, Leona Helmsley was one. Crazy. Bitch.

7.  In a thread from April entitled “NOT happy with PittGirl at the moment” on Benny’s official forum, in which the minions are pissed about this post of mine, all of the following are said about me:

  • I’d like to have a cage match with Pittgirl over this one!
  • Pittgirl is always a class a A-hole
  • I think she is pathetic and is attention starved..but then again, I don’t read her unless it’s brought up on this site.
  • She obviously does it to get a reaction from people. And by the looks of it its working. Maybe Benji turned her down.
  • Burgh blog is the main example of Yinzer urge to nitpick.  That’s why I don’t read that crap!
  • She does it cause it gives her stupid blog traffic.  Otherwise people would ignore her and move on.

And my absolute personal favorite:

 Pittgirl to me has a heart blacker than sin.



  1. Pittgirl is mean?
    August 29, 2007 11:55 am

    While we were on vacation last week, I was telling stories to my boys about an aunt I had who was SUPER mean and, thus, so was her chihuaha who always gnarled its teeth or bit me when I was within striking range.

    One of the boys asked me, “Was she meaner than a bag of hammers?”

    Just heard of Lordi? Where have you been? Lordi won the Eurovision song contest the year before last. The are still big in Finland… our hosts there were very proud to have finally won over their ABBA loving cousins, Sweden. Sadly, I didn’t have time to make it to their restaurant… er..

    i have a question, if Pittgirl doesn’t like ben or what he does, why does she feel the need to talk about him???? i mean if i don’t like someone i don’t talk about them, or talk about what they did.

    I’m going to write “IRONY” in huge letters on a baseball bat and club #1BENLUVER with it.

    1. WTF?

    2. Don’t you wish there was a way you could find these people and let small animals crush them?

    3. Hold me, I’m scared.

    4. I’m torn. Specifically, I’m torn between “up with Dunkin’ Donuts/down with Krispy Kreme” and “WTF, Dunkin’, you closed three, count ’em THREE stores within a mile of my house when Krispy Kreme opened ONE freakin’ store an hour away! I coulda told you Pittsburgh would be loyal to its Dunkin’….your business sense BLOOOOOWS!”

    5. Now THAT has to be somebody punking us. (For the love of God, PLEASE.)

    6. You, GO, Leona. I’ve known PLENTY of people who deserve to be shit-kicked in favor of a dog. Besides, someone’s got to balance out our animal karma given things like 2.

    7. Poor Benny! Pittgirl is ALL that is SOULLESS and WRONG.

    Lordi was actually the winner of 2006’s Eurovision – essentially a competition of acts from across Europe. The winner is crowned by text message vote. I guess they’re trying to conquer America now.

    1) He once explained himself by holding out his two hands and offering, “Good public servant … BAD politician.” Is this any help?

    2) On behalf of foot fetishists everywhere, I must complain to the P-G. That is not a foot fetish. That is a sociopathic prick fetish.

    7) I don’t sympatize with the minions, either, but a Cage Match is a solid suggestion.

    The Cranberry Dunkin one (which I can see out my window) is straight outta the 70’s, too. It needs a big time update.

    #5…I’d put on spike heels (no short skirt!) and slowly crush that asshat. I agree w/ Pensgirl and hope we’re being punked on dat one. I need you, Pittgirl, to give my daughter nut-kicking lessons.

    ok this is my first posting on ur blog and i just wanted to let you know i would prob be classified as one of benny’s minions since i do post on his blog but i absolutely LOVE you and your blog, so don’t think it’s all of us are like that at his forum!! i think u rock Pittgirl!!!

  22. THEBOJ
    August 29, 2007 7:59 pm

    Personally, I think my reply to their forum post says it all…

    “Seriously… do you all think that PittGirl creates her blog or makes snarky comments for your benefit? Do you think she does it for the attention?

    Ummm… that blog was around before you were bashing it. And that blog was around before it got “famous”. YOU all made it popular and famous.

    Regardless of her opinion of Ben (correct as it may be), she really could care less what we all think. That’s what makes it good stuff. It is honest, and it is hers.

    Get over yourselves.”

    I am the author of that thread. And at the time I was a little annoyed with pittgirl…thats all. Didnt mean to get the crazies to go well…crazier. I do however find it hilarious that April sent you a post from like March or April. She had to go digging for that one.
    And I am a big Ben news…that is a much classier web sight then Br7!

Get together some scratch..borrow from mom and buy a franchise!!!! Once they head office gives the OK to open in a specific area your good to go, so look into it. I’m missing out living here in already Dunkin’d land. KA CHING Burg buddies

    From what I’ve seen and heard in some ways BBN is better, but in others it’s BR-7 lite. Just go for (positive) Benny news and pictures if that’s what you’re looking for (how she finds all that stuff I will never know) and keep it moving. It definitely seems that they only allow you to express yourself to a certain extent…

    Thanks to your input and a little research, I have discovered that there are no Dunkin’ Donuts within 30 miles of my home. It’s almost like they found my house on a map and drew a big circle around it saying “No donuts for you!” I need minions. Minions that will fetch me donut holes and super-yummy iced coffee beverages.

    Sylar–apparently he didn’t sign autographs afterwards and was texting someone during the highlight film. Then again since his highlights included sucking for most of the season I don’t blame him for not wanting to watch. OMG HE WAS TEXTING MISSY THAT WHORE HOW DARE SHE DISTRACT HIM FROM US TRUE FANS??!!??!!?ELEVENTY?!?!
