Articles from February 2010
For the dozens of you that follow my blog, you know I do a feature called Celebrity Tweet of the Week—a year-long contest that tracks the funniest celebrity tweets. You may also have noticed I’ve been slacking with this feature lately.
I’ve grown tired of tracking through my twitter timeline, sorting through tweet’s about Kim Kardashian’s workout schedule and Bill Simmons, bitching about the Celtics. I have contemplated giving up on it.
However, today I was inspired to rejuvenate the dying feature. Today, Conan O’Brien has set up a Twitter account! If his first tweet is a sign of things to come, he looks to be the 2010 favorite.
So for the first time in a while, I give you Celebrity Tweet of the Week… (more…)
DV (12:13:29 PM): Hey
John S. (12:13:37 PM): hey
DV (12:13:46 PM): so for 5 minutes during 24 last night I was like… hey you know what… this actually kind of makes sense…
DV (12:14:28 PM): then the flood gates of diarrhea opened and took the episode down the toilet
DV (12:15:07 PM): it was like watching a Mets game.
DV (12:15:45 PM): they did just enough to get your interest and then put in Scott Schoeinwiess (more…)
HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm is known for making light of some the most subtle and awkward social situations. In a new series, I’ll take a memorable scene from the genius mind of Larry David and break it down even further. Today’s edition is from the season seven episode titled “The Bare Midriff.”
Take a look at the clip below.
EDITORS NOTE: Since posting this clip, it has been removed from youtube. I’ve been unable to find another clip. You’ll just have to imagine a fat girl in the clip whose belly is hanging out.
The bare midriff is a fashion faux pas that I see way too often during the warm summer months. A woman loses a few pounds and thinks she is sexy enough to flaunt her slightly-less flabby stomach. This can be a disturbing image that will send men running. Often this can be coupled with the infamous “muffin top” look to form a deadly combination. (more…)
Like any other boy growing up, I had my fair share of action figures. Star Wars, He-Man and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures were scattered throughout my room as a little kid. I still have a number of these toys stashed away in my old closet at my parent’s house. However, over the years, there has also been some pretty awful action figures created too. Viceland recently wrote a post called The Dumbest Action Figures of All-Time.

After another absurd episode of 24 this past Monday, my buddy DV and I are back to rip into this season of 24. Here’s the AIM transcript from this week. SPOILER ALERT!! Don’t read ahead if you have not seen the episode which aired on February 15, 2010.
John S (10:01:35 AM): hey
DV (10:02:28 AM): yo
DV (10:02:37 AM): did you watch 24?
John S (10:02:44 AM): yes
DV (10:03:25 AM): the script must have been written on toilet paper cause there was crap all over that episode (more…)
Through the magic of Google Analytics, I am able to view every possible Google search that brought someone to my page. Some of the searches I’ve discovered are rather entertaining. I thought I’d share them with you. Here are the most notable searches that brought readers to Living with Balls. (more…)
The Peanuts comic below was in the paper this Valentine’s Day. Even on Valentine’s Day, poor Charlie Brown can’t get any love. That Lucy is one cruel bitch. This is much worse than pulling the football out from under him. (more…)
The Winter Olympics have finally arrived! I’ve been waiting for this moment ever since the closing ceremonies of Torino back in 2006. I just can’t contain my enthusiasm for such great events like ice dancing, cross-country skiing and curling! Are you noting the sarcasm here?
Truthfully, the Winter Olympics suck. Why should I care about some Swedish ski jumper or a German bobsledder? Other than watching figure skaters fall and cry off the ice, the Winter Olympics provide little entertainment value.
However, this time around, I have found a way to make the Winter Olympics worth watching (and it doesn’t involve pictures of Lindsay Vonn in a bikini, although that helps). I am going head-to-head with Kosmo from The Casual Observer in a battle of obscure sports prognostication.
Each us of have created a Winter Olympics fantasy team. Points will be awarded for each of our competitors that medal. In the end, one of us will be declared the king of knowing the most about boring sports that people only care about for two weeks, every four years. (more…)

In the land of raunchiness and filth, Urban Dictionary is king. Whether you are on the prowl for the trendiest new curse word (see: gunt) or an out of this world sex move (see: Swedish Periscope), the UD is the only place to go. In my morning Internet rundown, there are really only 3 or 4 sites that I absolutely must visit: first is obviously The Campus Socialite, next is ESPN.com, third is Asscafe.com (gotta stay up on the new video content), and the fourth has to be Urban Dictionary. Between their “Word of the Day” feature and their hilarious use of terms in sentences (i.e. “Chuck Norris once uppercutted a horse, we now call that animal a giraffe”), Urban Dictionary is the only place to go when looking to expand your mortifying vocabulary. To commemorate a site that would even make Hollywood’s most foul-mouthed actor (Samuel L. Jackson) proud, The Campus Socialite presents the best definitions of Urban Dictionary.
