The Morning Grumpy 12/19/2011

Filed under: Morning Grumpy

All the news and views fit to consume during your “morning grumpy”.

1. So, Kim Jong-Il is dead. At least he’s no longer lonely.

Also, best tweet about his death goes to comedian Rob Delaney.

2. A sample from one of my favorite YouTube channels. Henry’s Kitchen.

3. Chase Whiteside of New Left Media visited #Occupy locations in New York, Oakland, and Cincinatti and came back with this report.

The footage of cops breaking up the #occupy camps is still shocking to watch even after several weeks have passed. Kudos to Mayor Brown, the Common Council, and the Buffalo Police for keeping things civil here in Buffalo.

Fact Of The Day: There is a YouTube channel dedicated to teaching us how to say the dirtiest, filthiest, awesome things in sign language. If you’ve ever wanted to tell someone to “Die In A Fire” or “F*ck You, You F*cking F*ck” without saying a word, well, this is the channel you’ve been looking for. Made all the more awesome because of the perky, innocent tour guide of profanity.
