Earlier this month Kim Kardashian was highly criticized for only donating 10% of her eBay auction earnings to the relief fund for the Philippines. Today she sent out a tweet and a post on her site explaining herself.
Honestly I think it’s wonderful if celebrities and or athletes donate their earnings to charity and who are we to say it’s not enough? I certainly don’t think they should be compelled to do so nor should we begrudge those who don’t. I sure as hell don’t donate nearly as much.

Everyone’s sick in the Raethka household today, even Darth Vader.. Looks like Elfie is taking advantage of his weaknesses for a change and going on a joyride with the Ninja Turtles
While I was in the attic today digging out the holiday decorations, I happened across this old photograph in a crack in the wall.. it looks as if Vader and Elfie have been enemies for much longer than we have thought.
Darth Vader would like to remind anyone that dates his daughter, that he has a light saber and an alibi…
After outrage from the masses, Campbell Soup has felt compelled to apologize on Saturday for a tweet sent out by its SpaghettiOs brand that marked the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks with a picture of its smiling mascot waving an American flag.
The infamous Tweet
The fact that ya’ll got your panties in a twist over this is ridiculous. Campbell’s says the tweet was meant to pay respect and later tweeted, ”We apologize for our recent tweet in remembrance of Pearl Harbor Day. We meant to pay respect, not to offend.”
Have we really run out of valid things to complain about or does it seem like we’re going disproportionately overboard here? And not just here, but this seems to be a trend where daily I see people yapping about some asinine thing. Dude, chill. I actually think the tweet was cute. And so what if they use their brand mascot to pay tribute to remember a historical American tragedy? You dress your kids up in American flag shirts and post pics of them on the fourth of July. I don’t really see a difference. SpagettiOs is proud of their mascot and I believe genuinely wanted to pay tribute. What if they posted the same message without their guy, would it have been the same reaction? So what if their motive was to make their company seem family oriented or patriotic? Those qualities in a brand are refreshing. The story isn’t that Campbell’s was too insensitive, it’s that people are too jumpy to complain about crap that doesn’t hurt anybody.
Today is a day to remember the 2,402 Americans that were killed and the 1,282 that were wounded during the attack on a Pearl Harbor the morning of December 7th, 1941.

In total jerk head move, two men allegedly have stolen pieces of the wreckage from the crash that Actor Paul Walker was killed in. Police have arrested Jameson Witty, 18, at his home in Los Angeles and he is being held on $20,000 bail. A second suspect, a 25-year-old man whose name has not been released, is outside California and arranging to surrender police have said.
Witnesses told investigators that they saw someone driving behind the tow truck that was hauling away wreckage hours after the fiery crash that killed Paul Walker and friend that also has died, Roger Rodas.
A man allegedly had gotten out of a car that was trailing the tow truck and while the tow truck was stopped at a light, he grabbed a piece of the wreckage and made away with it.
