Have just realized I use words like "win" and "rock" the way Wayne Campbell used to say "party" and "bonus".

Hey, kids?

Star Wars: TPM as a tabletop RPG. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are the player characters.

Best. Webcomic. Evar.

I'm sure by now everyone has heard these rumors, but there's the link anyway in case you've missed it somehow.

Where to begin?

God, I don't even know anymore. People: swine flu DID NOT come from Miss Piggy! I can't believe people are still slinging this mud. The only reason the rumor got started in the first place was the same as all the other bullshit rumors about her: slut-shaming. You don't see anyone accusing the male muppet pigs of spreading infectious diseases.

Who cares whether that vacation she took was really in Mexico? And how is it any of your business how many people she did or did not sleep with while she was there? Piggy is a grown sow, and is in charge of her own body. If she was having lots of wild vacation sex--and if so, more power to her--surely that's an incontrivertible indication she didn't have swine flu, because when you have the flu, you don't have the energy to be having sex. All you want to do is sleep.

And anyway, Piggy was back in New York long before cases started showing up anywhere. Surely she would have been among the first diagnosed?

Even if Piggy did have swine flu, and even if she did transmit it to someone in Mexico, that's really no reason to shame her in the national media. First of all, there's no indication the disease is sexually transmitted, so the whole "everyone knows Piggy is a slut" thing isn't even relevant. And secondly, if I have the flu and I cough on my coworker and sie gets it, I haven't done something immoral or unethical and I certainly haven't committed a crime. The real crime is that the culture of work in this country encourages people to come in even if they have a fever! And in this case, the real crime is the spread of this vicious slander.

I for one applaud Piggy for not responding publicly to the rumors. Her sex life, and her medical health, are no one's business but her own.

Is it just me or does Nimueh totally look like Alicia Silverstone if someone dressed her up as LivTyler!Arwen?
