Friday Combo Platter: Dripping in Animal Sex Appeal Edition

Friday_combo_platter Most of the MamaPop writers were snowed in for the past week. Correction: most of the MamaPop writers were snowed in WITH THEIR NO-SCHOOL-HAVING CHILDREN FOR THE PAST WEEK. Therefore, you will have to forgive the slightly manic tinge that our thread of the week has.

Friday Combo Platter: Uncaps Edition

Friday_combo_platter Our thread of the week was born out of a simple bashing of LOST and devolved into a pissing contest about who had met what celebrities, which is just as obnoxious as it sounds.

Friday Combo Platter: RRS Edition

Friday_combo_platter Greetings! Our thread of the week was born from a comment that Christian Louboutin (or someone claiming to be him) left saying, "What a great blog! It's a pity that i can't find your rrs address. If you can offer rrs subscription service, i can track your blog easier!" We scratched our heads over the actual comment for about 30 seconds and then something shiny and then, as these things tend to do, the whole thing went off the rails.

Friday Combo Platter: Your One-Stop Shop for the Most Absurd Videos on the Internet Edition

Friday_combo_platter  Well, hello! And apologies for the unexpected hiatus! I had some pretty serious computer problems over the holidays. For the record: I don't recommend being snowed in and internetless. It makes life...kind of suck.

Friday Combo Platter: Can I Do Flash Gordon? Edition

Friday_combo_platter It's a slightly special version of the Friday Combo Platter, because hopefully most of you are, by now, in some sort of stupor. IT'S CHRISTMAS, BETCHES!!!!

Friday Combo Platter: Wait...Am I on Nitrous? Edition

Friday_combo_platter Usually, when I transcribe the email threads for the combo platter, I edit them slightly so that the replies are in order. But sometimes, Gmail plays tricks on me and sends me emails out of order, but then looking back they seem to be in order, and maybe I just dreamed that. And...hey...is that a unicorn?

Friday Combo Platter: Amber's on Nitrous Edition

Friday_combo_platter From Wikipedia: Nitrous oxide, commonly known as happy gas or laughing gas, is a chemical compound with the chemical formula N2O. At room temperature, it is a colorless non-flammable gas, with a pleasant, slightly sweet odor and taste. It is used in surgery and dentistry for its anesthetic and analgesic effects. It is known as "laughing gas" due to the euphoric effects of inhaling it, a property that has led to its recreational use as a dissociative drug.

It also has hilarious effects on email threads.

Friday Combo Platter: Nora Ephron's Armageddon Edition

Friday_combo_platter  This week's email thread was born out of Thanksgiving-centric stress and it's kind of long, but brilliant. Grab a cup of coffee and feast your eyes on this...

Friday Combo Platter: Post-Thanksgiving, Balls in Hot Water Edition

Thanksgiving-dinner First, apologies for the lack of a combo platter last week. A bunch of us here at MamaPop have those irritating, 9 to 5 gigs and sometimes they get in the way of the important things in life, like alerting you to the fact that yet another seemingly innocent conversation on the MamaPop email list devolved into testicle jokes. Must've been a day that ends in "y."

Friday Combo Platter: Brinty Fresh Edition

Friday_combo_platter This week's Friday Combo Platter helps to answer the burning
question: What fabulousness will the House of Dereon produce next?

Friday Combo Platter: In Defense of George Harrison Edition

Friday_combo_platter People often ask me*, "kdiddy, the MamaPop writers seem like such a fun-loving bunch, warm, caring, and considerate of each other's feelings. They really reserve their shit-talking for everyone else in the world, huh?" I am here to show you that that is not true at all. We're often cruelest to each other.

*This is a total lie.

Friday Combo Platter: Leprechaun Vampire Edition

Friday_combo_platter The Combo Platter is a little light this week, in my opinion. Folks have been busy and/or boxing in the first round with the kangaroo that is seasonal affective disorder. Not that I would know anything about that. Ahem. But we still have some lulz to share.

Friday Combo Platter: Scrotal Humor Edition

Friday_combo_platterToday's Combo Platter has three main ingredients:

        • Testicles
        • Homances (the female equivalent of bromances)
        • Racists
There's also a bonus sub-thread. COULD YOUR LIFE GET MORE AWESOMER? I THINK NOT!

Friday Combo Platter: Also Mental Hospital Edition

Friday_combo_platter Yay! It's Friday! That means that the weekend is here, Where the Wild Things Are is opening today, and it's time for the Combo Platter.

Our best email thread from this week is one that I can't share with you because lives would be ruined. Suffice it to say, nothing is truly sacred with the MamaPop email distro.

So I dug back a few months and found this exchange which occurred after a reader sent us an email with this image attached and little to no explanation as to why she felt it was important for us to see. (By the way, Hannah, if you're reading...sweetie, what is this supposed to mean?)

Friday_combo_platterIt's Friday!
