Today’s Wednesday Beauty is another anonymous beauty from Flickr. The shot was taken by DiverseblkBeauty and is titled After The Storm. And after a day of protesting or a really long, bad day she’s definitely a sight for sore eyes. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!

Tide, a popular American laundry detergent, is running a new commercial featuring a stay-at-home dad speaking about the benefits of Tide Boost.
I can’t recall another major household brand, as well-known as Tide featuring a stay-at-home dad, I wonder if we’ll see more brands following suit?
At this moment corporate America, hell corporations in general, don’t deserve one iota of praise from the public but Proctor & Gamble has earned at the very least a “well done” for having the guts to flip the gender roles and promote this non-traditional spokesman and in effect, an idea, for one of their most beloved products. I applaud Proctor & Gamble’s efforts to empower men who have chosen to throw off society’s shackles and embrace the primary care-giver role which once the main and in most cases the only role for women. P&G, I tip my hat to you!
They both have the creepiest smiles I have ever seen.
Check out Nicki the Llama smiling from about 0.42-0.45 and tell me, isn’t that one of the creepiest smiles you’ve ever seen in your life? Well for me that smile was number one until I saw Herman Cain’s latest campaign ad, with him smiling at the end. I didn’t know what he was trying to accomplish did he want to go for inspiration and authenticity or did he just want to creep us all out around Halloween? Lol I don’t think he was going for the latter but after seeing him smile, at the end of that end most of the viewers probably did what I did lurch backward, raise an eyebrow and muttered, ”What the hell was that?”Lol
But it’s all good Mr.Cain you don’t need any of those fancy ads, your authenticity is winning you millions of friends and your campaign coffers are swelling so obviously you’re doing something right and people love it! But I’d practice my smiling in the mirror just a few more times before appearing in any more ads.
But to be fair Me And My Llama wins the best song contest hands down! So my dear vintage Sesame Street fans go ahead and sing along you know you want to and don’t worry if you feel like a kid when you’re singing it’s ok. A whole bunch of ‘big kids’ will be singing right along with you!
Republican Presidential Candidaten Michele Bachmann claimed after the CNN/Tea Party debate on Monday,on the ”Today” show, that a woman came up to her and told her that her daughter had become “mentally retarded” after being vaccinated against Genital human papillomavirus (HPV).
A few hours ago two doctors offered to pay more than $10 000 for proof of the woman’s claim and Bachmann’s assertions.
The doctors only want the medical records of the woman or child involved in the story but I’m taking it a bit further I doubt there ever was a woman!
Now, don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that people don’t make these types of claims all the times and politicians and public figures probably hear these types of stories more than psychiatrists! However, they tend to either dismiss the story or do their own private investigative work to see if their is any validity to the claims. And sometimes, where there is smoke there is fire. For instance, last year the US government issued an official apology to the Guatamalan government some 40 years after it was revealed that Guatamalan prisoners and mental health patients were intentionally infected with gonorrhea, syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases.
Michele Bachmann supposedly repeated a story she had just heard from a woman, she had just met just after the CNN/Tea Party debate on Monday September 12th on a national television show the day after. I don’t think she’s that dumb. However, I do believe that she would take an issue that she knows could resonate and top it off with a wild accusation that feeds into the public distrust of public health inoculation programs, throw it at her main opponent Rick Perry and hope that it sticks.
She has said that she doesn’t know if this story is true, but putting aside the crazy accusations this ‘mystery woman’ made to Representative Bachamann and the examination of her records, I just would love for the Bachmann campaign to produce the woman that said it and allow her to be questioned by the media. I doubt they can. They can certainly produce many people who would make that claim but the actual person who told Michele Bachmann that story, right after the debate and with all the cameras around her I’m sure some photographer would’ve captured the exchange. So that would be proof.
I doubt that woman and her daughter will ever be found because they probably don’t exist.
And I’m not the only one who doubts Bachmann’s story either. Laura Curtis, a conservative blogger has now had a change of heart about about Bachmann and states on her blog, Pursuing Holiness, that Bachmann either, “lied or was incredibly stupid to repeat such a ridiculous story.” I don’t normally agree with conservatives but on this point I’m definitely nodding my head in agreement.
