This.. is the best cake EVER.
THAT’S A CAKE?
“Oh, this is a pretty cool statue - A CAKE? WHAT THE HELL?”
What evil person would want to eat this sort of cake though.
slow clap for the harry potter fandom
reblogging for the crack voldemort.
I would cry myself to sleep if I ate that cake.
I’m supposed to be writing a recap for teenwolfwiki right now and I got distracted looking up where I could buy a transparent white board like the one Stiles has …
They’re actually really expensive. Like, two of those would equal the bill for…
"Firstly, I’m glad you survived. I don’t know how you can stand all that water. Secondly, come here. You washed off my scent."
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
Someone remotely farmiliar with the concept of ableism might still have gone “A medical condition + a non-medical negative meaning = probably ableism”.
But so many people actually do not ever stop to just think about this stuff that I’m not surprised that this got through. Not using and filtering out offensive bigotted language is something that should be a standard part of writing and speaking in public, but many public figured still have a long way to go.
Considering the risk of a negative backlash from things like this, I don’t think Weird Al left it in on purpose.
Thank you for a picture of a blank wall DW twitter…but why post it…i’m confused…?
