Who created the rimmed glass deliciousness that is the Margarita? Who knows – to be honest, who even cares? You can believe it was named after Rita Hayworth in the 1940s when she was working as a dancer in Tijuana, MX under her real name, Margarita Carmen Cansino; or you can believe that it was created as a wedding gift for Margarita Negrete by her brother-in-law, a bartender from Puebla, MX in 1936. In the end, once that sweet, sweet liquid is dripping down your gullet, it quickly becomes a moot point. We are going to give you a special drink post every Friday from now on to give you some ideas to get your delicious drink on over the weekend, glasses up and enjoy.
All ingredients poured over ice into a tall mixing glass, shaken briskly, strained into chilled cocktail glass with salted rim (optional). Garnish with lime wheel.
You can’t go wrong with a drink named after a Cadillac. Like the three-minute mile, it’s impossible.
If you are anything like me, you spend 6 of the 8 hours in your cube wondering what went wrong in your life to bring you to this 5×5 ceramic grave. Life is brutal in the corporate world, especially now when most people are willing to trade their first born for a shot at employment. I will admit one thing, in the big corporate companies, its easy to hide. If you just feel like slacking off, or writing on your super hip and successful blog (ZOOTPATROL.COM BABY!!) then you can probably get away with it without anyone noticing. There people took the idea of slacking off to the limit, and made full on art projects with company supplied goods. We love it. We support it. We envy it. Check out these awesome things made with nothing but office supplies.
I like nerds they usually just wild out on video games, keep to themselves, and when you actually talk to them they tend to be funny, but I don’t talk to nerds because I’m too awesome so I wouldn’t know how they act. Instead I just beat them up and take their lunch money daily, that’s how tough I am. Anyway nerds are usually pretty reserved unless you fuck with their video games, and when they get mad they go nuts. Here are 5 classic nerd blow ups.
1. Nerd Freaks Out When Password Gets Changed
2. Nerd Goes Off On His Monitor

Besides the info you include about yourself that can be made public, I am huge supporter of something like this, because being an internet marketer, I don’t believe the average person knows how much their info is hoared out to advertisers online. Ever notice how the ads that pop up in your free email account or on facebook revolve around your interests, age, location, and even keywords in your emails or status updates. It’s because every bit of info you have online is targeted and your movements through this world of advertising are always tracked. The openness of the internet may be coming to a crossroads and the idea of my internet social presence being entirely controlled by me is sounding better and better. Check this idea out. Video Below.
This renditions of the female characters of famous Disney movies come from J. Scott Campbell, and they rule. I’ll tell you this much, if Disney made their characters this hot, I probably would have watched them a lot more as a kid. I am kind of upset he didn’t include Jasmin from Aladdin, one of my favorites, but you can’t win them all.
There’s this video of an awful wedding DJ at an awful wedding who slaps the boobs of this chubby girl. Some folks suspect that it’s some kind of weird viral marketing, but there’s just no way. You say, “There’s no way this guy could be real.” We say, “There’s no way this guy could be made up.” Who says, “You guys know what would be so hilarious? Let’s get a dozen people together (some with babies) and put them in front of a camera and stage this elaborate pathetic wedding reception and this guy will slap this fat chick’s boobs. We’ll slow it down with some Phil Collins. It’s like I know those two glasses of Chardonnay just kicked in and but try and get it together pal, they haven’t even served dinner yet!
I don’t know much about fish, or the deep sea, or anything really for that matter, but what I do know is translucent creatures are cool, and I like them. I find it kind of funny that we so desperately are trying to explore outer space, which is cool and all, but we have never even gone to certain points of the ocean. I think we should find more bad ass alien looking creatures like these on our own planet first and foremost, maybe there is a Candy Land type place down there somewhere too.
Liquid Mountaineering is a new sport which is attempting to achieve what man has tried to do for centuries: walk on water. Or to be more precise: running on water. A group of guys are developing the sport from scratch. By accident they found out that with the right water repellent equipment you can run across bodies of water, just like a stone skimming the surface. I don’t really see this catching on to be the next big sport, but it is pretty rad and defiantly worth trying out, I could imagine it feeling pretty awesome to get your Jesus on for about 9 steps. You can check out the inventors blog found here for more information and videos.
This oil spill-inspired piece in Mobile was done by Priest, an Alabama-based street artist who appears to be “slightly” influenced by Banksy. That is something we fully support since Banksy is one of our top artists. Nice work Priest!
During the Tigers Yankees game last night, Hov and Em announced that they would partake in a two-show stand. On September 2nd, Jay will open up for Em at Comerica Park in Detroit. Then on September 13th, Em will be the opening act at Yankee Stadium. This will be the first concert at the new Yankee stadium. We are thrilled that two of today’s most exciting music artists will headline the first-ever concert at Yankee Stadium,” said Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost. “Yankee Stadium was built with this kind of mega-event in mind. It will undoubtedly be a memorable occasion for music fans around the world.” No word yet when tickets go on sale but we are already waiting on line.
