While you were asleep: Making a Murderer con released, young Joe Biden and a town fights smut – sort of

Joe Biden

Approx Reading Time-10Sweet humpday. What happened while you were asleep? Making a Murderer’s Brendan Dassey was freed, Joe Biden was crushed upon and a town fought adult entertainment. Not literally.

 


Making a Murderer’s Brendan Dassey released, series two ending ruined.

Dassey, the kid made famous in the grating and periodically waffling Netflix series Making a Murderer, has been released by a judge in Wisconsin. As we’re familiar with the case, Dassey, along with next door neighbour and uncle, Steven Avery, was convicted of murdering, raping and mutilating a woman named Teresa Halbach.

Dassey was given life behind bars at the age of 16, however that conviction was overturned earlier in the year with Dassey, if the show is to be believed, having possibly been led in his confession by local investigators.

Dassey will apparently be home in time for Thanksgiving, as Making a Murderer series two will be filling our lives in lieu of work early next year.

 

Town takes up fight against pornography, but not because of the sex. What?

Toowoomba is the town in question, and lordy doo, there are some questions. So allow me to run them all into one horrible grammatically abusive sentence, so we can get right down to business. Eh? Eh? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

No, it’s not about the genitals.

No, it’s not totally based on a religious push.

And no, it’s not about Toowoomba.

It’s about the violence in adult movies.

What?

Two-hundred erect men stood proudly on the outskirts of the township to register their disgust, led by the clenched fist of Mayor Paul Antonio, who sputtered, “I think some of the things you see on pornography, I don’t know what you watch but some of the things that I’ve just casually glanced at are not necessarily the way I would expect a good relationship would head.”

Right.

I’m fairly certain people don’t seek the adult film art-scene for the groundwork of Relationships 101. You could argue that it is handy in charting doorstep conversation, or proving how elastic the step-parent construct may be.

Moving on.

There is a Christian organisation involved. CEO of City Women, Letitia Shelton, said, “I believe (our campaign) presents the reality of what people are struggling with, we are hearing more and more stories of how porn is ruining lives, marriages, families etc.”

Conversely, sexologists have pointed toward the push of abstinence, stating that it “doesn’t work”, and when forced, “I’m concerned that it doesn’t allow people to discuss their own porn use or to talk about the things that they see in porn.”

Well, I’ll be *expletive deleted*

 

 

Young Joe Biden circles the Internet, sends voting populace grasping for the smelling salts.

As it goes when we suffer a shock to the system, or a rather sobering breakup, we fall into the arms of some person who is easy on the eye, and uncomplicated in the head. Now that we’ve woken up in a stupor from the US election, to find the gold watch wearing, tangerine forearm of Prez-elect Trump draped over our shoulder, we’ve sought shores anew. Well…1965 Joe Biden.

According to one Internet political analyst, the younger Joe Biden was “fine asf”.

To be fair, I’d keep an eye on him at a house party. Either to see if he’d chisel my partner from my hip, or if I had a realistic shot at him. Who’d have thunk that hunk would have grown up into a bumbling yutz, who once asked the wheelchair-bound Senator Chuck Graham to stand up and take a bow, and then through our desolation, became the King of Memes.

What a guy.
